Announces 32% Growth for Quarter, 20% Year-Over-Year, Doubling of Formulated Product Sales and YTD ProfitabilityROMEOVILLE, Ill., Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanophase Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: NANX), a leader in minerals-based personal care ingredients and formulated products for protecting skin from environmental aggressors, such as UV light and pollution, today reported financial results for the first quarter and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020. “The current environment we are working through has offered opportunity along with the health challenges we all share. We have grown our Solésence business rapidly and, driven by Covid-19-related applications, our medical diagnostics materials are selling at a record pace. Looking at our three key business areas over the six month period, we have seen our Solésence and Advanced Materials businesses grow significantly, offset by a reduction in our Personal Care Ingredients business due to soft demand for sunscreens, which we believe to be influenced by the global reaction to Covid-19,” commented Jess Jankowski, President and CEO. Second Quarter and YTD 2020 Financial Highlights * Revenue for the second quarter was $4.3 million, vs. $3.3 million for the same period in 2019. Revenue for the six-month period was $8.4 million vs. $7.0 million for the same period in 2019.For the six-month period of 2020:\- Solésence revenue was $2.8 million, up 120% from $1.3 million in 2019 \- Advanced Materials revenue was $2.1 million, up 31% from $1.6 million in 2019 \- Personal Care Ingredients revenue was $3.4 million, down 17% from $4.1 million in 2019 * Net income for the quarter was $0.5 million in 2020, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per share, for 2019. Net income for the six-month period was $0.4 million in 2020, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.03 per share, for 2019. We note that the PPP funding we received in the second quarter of 2020 is recorded on the balance sheet as a liability and has not had any impact on our income statement to date. * The Company finished the quarter with approximately $1.8 million in cash and cash equivalents.Jankowski continued, ”The growth we are seeing in our Solésence business is exciting. Six clients make up 90% of the $2.8 million in first half revenue, with our two largest Solesence clients expected to exceed $1 million in revenue this year. Our Advanced Materials business has seen growth driven by the current expanded medical testing requirements related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our material is used in a testing regime that is applicable to identifying a series of viruses, and while not predictable going forward, we believe this business will remain strong, even if not at current levels.” Jankowski continued, “In terms of our expectations through 2020, we have reasonable visibility through November. We are expecting second half volume to remain strong compared to last year, driven by the continued expansion of our Solésence business and demand for our medical diagnostics materials, offset by diminished Personal Care Ingredients sales, which we believe has been impacted by both the Covid-19 pandemic and typical North American seasonality.“Looking at our gross profits and bottom line growth, we can see the results of the operational and strategic changes we’ve made to our organization to reduce costs and increase efficiency. We expect these efforts to continue to improve our profitability over the next year.“We continue to operate as an essential service, with our main concern being to protect our employees, their families, and our community during this disruption,” added Jankowski. “We continue to take necessary precautions, while manufacturing products that are critical to global Covid-19 testing, as well as skin health. We are both honored and proud to be able to contribute to our national public health, economic security, and safety through the materials we make for use in medical diagnostics.” Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information Nanophase believes that the presentation of results excluding certain items, such as non-cash equity compensation charges, provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors, facilitating the evaluation of performance across reporting periods.
