FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT),
the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers used in oil extraction, detergents 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 year over year increase in revenues for second quarter (Q2), 2013.
Flexible Solutions’ second quarter top line revenue increased from $3.76million (Q2, ‘12) to $4.88million (Q2, ‘13) up 30% year over year. Revenue increased from $8.95million in first half 2012 to $9.38million in the first half of 2013, up 5% year over year.
Mr. Dan O’Brien, CEO, comments, “We are pleased with the revenue growth and expect growth to continue in second half 2013. The strength of the agriculture and energy sectors will largely dictate the final numbers for this year, however I also point out that any particular quarter is unlikely to be an accurate prediction of the year as a whole. Weather affects agricultural purchase volume and timing while oil prices and maintenance scheduling cause variation from quarter to quarter in the oilfield vertical.”
Much of the increase in FSI’s second quarter sales came from the agriculture sector, though oilfield and industrial also saw increased revenue. The product is used to increase fertilizer availability to crops, creating higher yields with no increase in the amount of fertilizer used. Given current crop prices, the cost of using FSI’s product is a fraction of the value of the yield increase, which results in a significant net profit for growers, dealers and distributors..
Complete financial results will be available by August 14,
2013, concurrent with the Company’s SEC filings.
