FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), is the 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 Third Quarter (Q3) ended Sept. 30, 2014.

Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “We are pleased with our financial progress. The increase in Q3 revenue was a result of both a rise in polyaspartate sales and the WaterSavr sale to Wichita Falls TX. Predicting the full year revenue is not possible even with less than 2 months remaining, however, we feel that the general direction of our business is upward for the next several quarters at least.”

  • Sales in the third quarter (Q3), were $3,850,514, up 29% when compared to sales of $2,980,999, in the corresponding period a year ago. The result was a GAAP accounting net income of $177,228, or $0.01 per basic weighted average shares for Q3, 2014, compared with an accounting net loss of $681,900, or $0.05 per basic weighted average share, in Q3, 2013.
  • Basic weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts in Q3 were 13,169,991 for both 2014 and 2013.
  • Non-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 9 months ending Sept. 30, 2014, net income reflects $494,922 of non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses), and net income tax expense of $107,519. These items are either non-cash items or items not related to operations or current operating activities. When these items are removed, the Company shows operating cash flow of $1,023,844, or $0.08 per weighted average share. This compares with operating cash flow of $589,863, or $0.04 per share, in the corresponding 9 months of 2013 (see the table that follows for details of these calculations).

The NanoChem division continues to contribute most to our sales and cash flow and, new opportunities are unfolding to further increase sales in this division. First half sales may be larger than second half. This is due to potential growth in agricultural product sales, sales which tend to be stronger during the first half of each year.
