Victoria, British Columbia CANADA, January 15, 2013 /FSC/ - Flexible Solutions International Inc. (FSI - NYSE AMEX, FXT - FWB),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 a year over year increase in revenues for fourth quarter (Q4), and full year (FY) 2012.
Flexible Solutions' fourth quarter top line revenue increased from $3.37million (Q4, '11) to $3.85million (Q4, '12), up 14% year over year. Top line revenue for Full Year 2012 increased from $15.52million (FY,'11) to $16.40million (FY, '12), up 6% year over year.
Mr. Dan O'Brien, CEO,
comments, "We are pleased to see revenue growth resume and expect the rate of growth to accelerate well beyond the 2012 full year rate in 2013. The strength of the agriculture and energy sectors will largely dictate the final numbers, but I also count on our dedicated team to achieve this growth."
The largest increase in FSI's sales came from the agriculture sector. 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 March 30, 2013 concurrent with our SEC full year filings.
