FSI Announces First Quarter, 2013 Financial Results

Conference call scheduled for Thursday, May 16th, 11:00am Eastern Time, 8:00am Pacific Time

VICTORIA, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE Amex: 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 financial results for the first quarter (Q1) ended March 31, 2013.

Mr. Daniel B. O'Brien, CEO, states, "The decrease in first quarter revenue is largely a result of the aftereffects of last season's drought. We believe that agriculture distributors have delayed orders this spring in response to last year's weather and the cold, wet start to this year's planting. With regard to revenue forecasting, given the news of the continued economic contraction in Europe, and worries of adverse weather conditions in the US, it is simply too difficult and unrealistic to give numerical revenue guidance at this time. We do have very early indications that Q2 may recoup most of the revenue decline experienced in Q1 and we continue to predict that full year [FY] 2013 revenue is expected to be higher than FY 2012. Revenue forecasts will be updated at each financial reporting date." Mr. O'Brien continues, "As a result of the seasonality of the agriculture and swimming pool markets, FSI's sales have tended to be larger during the first half of the year, causing higher accounts receivable, and lower cash and inventory numbers. This does not affect the Company's ability to grow given its strong working capital position including, a largely untapped, $6.4 million line of credit with a Chicago based bank."

  • Sales in the first quarter (Q1) were $4,504,536, down approximately 13% when compared to sales of $5,194,071 in the corresponding period a year ago. The financials show a Q1, 2013 net profit of $65,161, or $0.00 per share compared to a net profit of $222,660, or $0.02 per share in Q1, 2012.
  • Basic weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts in Q1 were 13,169,991 for both 2013 and 2012.
  • Non-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 3 months ending March 31, 2013, net income reflects $353,071 of non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses), income tax ($58,000) as well as gain on sale of equipment and interest income ($2,057) which are items not related to operating or current operating activities. When these items are removed, the Company shows operating cash flow of $474,176, or $0.4 per share. This compares with operating cash flow of $1,118,964, or $0.08 per share, in the corresponding 3 months of 2012 (see the table that follows for details of these calculations).

The NanoChem division continues to produce most of FSI's revenue and cash flow. New opportunities continue to arise that may further increase sales in this division.

*CEO, Dan O'Brien has scheduled a conference call for 11:00am EDT, 8:00am PDT, Thursday May 16th to discuss the Company's financials. Call 1-877-941-0844 (or 1-480-629-9835). The conference call title, "First Quarter Financials," may be requested.*
