FSI announces a small decrease in Third Quarter, 2012 revenue but continues to show positive revenue growth for the first 9 months of 2012

VICTORIA, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE MKT: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), isthe developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients and water treatment as well as crop nutrient availability chemistry. Flexible Solutions also manufactures biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces a small year over year decrease in revenues for third quarter (Q3), 2012.

Sales to non-agricultural customers were lower in Q3, 2012 than in Q3, 2011. As a result, Flexible Solutions' top line revenue decreased from $3.86million (Q3, '11) to $3.6million (Q3, '12), down 7% year over year. Top line revenue for the first 9 months increased from $12.15 million (9 month, '11) to $12.55 million (9 month,'12), up 3% year over year.


The largest driver of FSI's sales growth has been agricultural sales. Although there has been significant growth in agriculture sales, the decline in other market verticals have offset those gains. In agriculture the product is used to increase fertilizer availability to crops, resulting in higher yields with no increase in the amount of fertilizer used. The cost of using this product is a fraction of the value of the yield increase, which results in net profits for farmers.

Complete financial results will be available by November 14,2012 concurrent with our SEC third quarter filings.
