- Sales in the first quarter (Q1) were $4,357,467, up approximately 29% when compared to sales of $3,384,846 in the corresponding period a year ago. Due to estimates, in Q1, 2010, of the expected Income tax expense for full year 2010, a much lower tax expense was recognized in Q1, 2010 than the actual tax expense related to revenue for that quarter. This has resulted in, what appears to be, a larger net income in Q1, 2010 versus Q1, 2011. Therefore for comparison purposes between these quarters it would be more accurate to compare the GAAP number “Income before tax.” See the First Quarter Financial Statement or the table on the following page for these numbers. The financials give a Q1, 2011 net profit of 358,107, or $0.03 per share compared to a net profit of $515,673, or $0.04 per share in Q1, 2010.
- Basic weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts in Q1 were 13,592,698 for 2011 and 13,962,567 for 2010. Note: a share buy back by the Company in Q1, 2011 is the reason for the reduced share count.
- Non-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 3 months ending March 31, 2011, net income reflects $117,992 of non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses), income tax, as well as $244,748 in new factory development costs and related interest expense. These items are either non-cash items or items not related to operations or current operating activities of the Company. When these items are removed, the Company shows operating cash flow of $1,040,847, or $0.8 per share. This compares with operating cash flow of $929,822, or $0.07 per share, in the corresponding 3 months of 2010 (see the table that follows for details of these calculations).
The NanoChem division continues to contribute most of our sales and cash flow, and new opportunities are unfolding to further increase sales in this division. NanoChem sales have been less seasonal than those of our WaterSavr and Flexible Solutions Ltd divisions. This has lead to less volatility in total revenue figures quarter over quarter. However, in the future, Q1 and Q2 sales may be much larger than sales in Q3 and Q4. This is largely due to potential growth in agricultural product sales (sales which tend to occur largely in Q1 and Q2).* CEO, Dan O’Brien has scheduled a conference call for 11:00am EST, 8:00am PST, Tuesday May 17th to discuss the financials. Call 1-877-941-6010 (or 1-480-629-9723 ). The conference call title, “ First Quarter Financials,” may be requested. * The above information and following table contain supplemental information regarding income and cash flow from operations for the 3 months ended March 31, 2011. Adjustments to exclude depreciation, stock option expenses and one time charges are given. This financial information is a Non-GAAP financial measure as defined by SEC regulation G. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable is net income . The reconciliation of each of the Non-GAAP financial measures is as follows:

|Notes : certain items not related to “operations” of the Company have been excluded from net income as follows. a) GAAP – the relative higher Income tax expense and lower Net income numbers for Q1, 2011 in comparison to Q1, 2010 are largely a result of full year income tax estimates made at the end of Q1. Adjustment to income tax expenses are made at the end of each quarter. b) Non-GAAP - amounts exclude certain non-cash items (depreciation and stock option expense totaling 2011 = $117,992, 2010 = $114,924) and income tax (2011 = 320,000, 2010 = $69,000. See Operating Cash Flow for other adjustments. c) Non-GAAP - amounts exclude certain non-cash items (depreciation and stock option expense totaling – see ”b” above), income tax (see “b” above) as well as items unrelated to current operating activities (new factory construction and related Interest expense totaling: 2011 = $244,748, 2010 = $230,225). d) Non-GAAP – amounts represent depreciation, stock option expense.|
