Second Quarter of 2018 Financial Review

The Company reported that total revenues increased by $549,000 or 19%, from $2,918,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 to $3,467,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Consumer revenues decreased by $239,000 or 15%, from $1,647,000 for quarter ended June 30, 2017 to $1,408,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Continuing from the first quarter of 2018, to position the Company for long term success and reach our positive adjusted EBITDA goal, the Consumer Segment focused on operational improvements and expense management during the quarter and deemphasized sales growth. We continue to believe we have a robust pipeline of profitable sales opportunities. Industrial revenues increased $669,000 or 42%, from $1,609,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 to $2,278,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The increase in Industrial revenues were driven by an increase in the raw materials pipeline and subsequent finished product capacity at the WV facility.

The Company reported that total gross profit decreased from $477,000, representing a 16% gross margin, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 to $394,000, representing a 11% gross margin, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Consumer gross profit decreased from $267,000, representing a 16% gross margin, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 to negative $(89,000), representing a negative (6)% gross margin, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Consumer gross profit was impacted by a decline in revenues as well as higher production costs due to total feedstock costs, including shipping costs, and certain non-recurring costs to improve long-term operations, including severance and regulatory compliance expenses. Industrial gross profit increased from $209,000, representing a 13% gross margin, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 to $483,000, representing a 21% gross margin, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Industrial gross profit was positively impacted by increased sales volume, pricing and mix of business.

The Company reported operating expenses increased from $1,154,000, representing a 40% operating expense ratio for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, to $1,326,000, representing a 38% expense ratio for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. On a sequential basis, operating expenses decreased for the second consecutive quarter compared to $1,643,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, and $1,594,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. We expect that operating expenses will decline incrementally over the next few quarters as significant non-recurring projects are completed, and we continue to refine our operations, including actions taken in areas such as staff reductions and changes in responsibilities.

The Company reported an operating loss of $931,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to a $678,000 operating loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

The Company reported a net loss of $1,154,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to a net loss of $902,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

The Company reported adjusted EBITDA of $(531,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to $(331,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Six Months of 2018 Financial Review

The Company reported total revenues increased by $1,260,000 or 24%, from $5,208,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 to $6,468,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Consumer revenues decreased by $99,000 or 3%, from $3,246,000 for six months ended June 30, 2017 to $3,147,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Industrial revenues increased $1,337,000 or 52%, from $2,549,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 to $3,886,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Sales growth was significant in the Industrial Segment on a year over year basis and we expect continued growth in the coming quarters led by the Industrial Segment.

The Company reported total gross profit increased from $617,000, representing a 12% gross margin, for the six ended June 30, 2017 to $946,000, representing a 15% gross margin, for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Consumer gross profit decreased from $459,000, representing a 15% gross margin, for the six months ended June 30, 2017 to $82,000, representing a 3% gross margin, for the six ended June 30, 2018. The Consumer gross profit was impacted by a decline in revenues as well as higher production costs due to total feedstock costs, including shipping costs, and non-recurring costs to improve long-term operations, including severance and regulatory compliance expenses. Industrial gross profit increased from $157,000, representing a 7% gross margin, for the six months ended June 30, 2017 to $865,000, representing a 22% gross margin, for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The Industrial gross profit was impacted by increased sales volume, pricing and mix of business in 2018 as well as approximately $200,000 of production costs in 2017 that were not fully absorbed into inventory, but rather expensed while the facility in Institute, West Virginia was off-line during the first 2 months of 2017 for infrastructure related capital improvements.

The Company reported operating expenses increased from $2,206,000, representing a 42% operating expense ratio for the six months ended June 30, 2017, to $2,969,000, representing a 46% expense ratio for the six months ended June 30, 2018. We expect that operating expenses will decline incrementally over the next few quarters as significant non-recurring projects are completed, and we continue to refine our operations, including actions taken in areas such as staff reductions and changes in responsibilities.

The Company reported an operating loss of $2,023,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to a $1,590,000 operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

The Company reported a net loss of $2,371,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to a net loss of $2,011,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

The Company reported adjusted EBITDA of $(1,226,000) for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $(861,000) for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

Business Outlook and 2018 Guidance

"During the past three months, our realigned management team conducted a thorough assessment of our business. Together we have revised our strategic vision on how to move forward, including, leveraging our core competitive advantages to grow our business, increasing our focus on reducing costs and strengthening our strategic partnerships," said Ian Rhodes, President and Chief Executive Officer.

The previously announced antifreeze blending project at the Company's facility in Institute, WV is expected to be completed and the first customer delivery made during the month of September. The WV antifreeze blending project provides the Company with a significant increase in antifreeze production capacity.

During early August, the Company experienced an environmental issue related to the processing of raw materials at its Institute, WV facility, which resulted in the Company shutting down production at the facility. The Company is working with regulatory agencies, its landlord and site services provider, and raw materials suppliers to address this issue and currently expects production to resume in late August or early September.

As a result of the above-noted business assessment, and related actions, and the WV facility production shutdown, the Company has updated its guidance for full year 2018:

  • Net Revenues for 2018 is expected to be at the low end of the previously provided guidance of $14.0 million and $16.0 million.
  • Quarterly adjusted EBITDA is not expected to be positive in the second half of 2018, but is expected to be positive in the first half of 2019.

The Company completed a reverse/forward stock split in July.

Presented above is the non-GAAP financial measure representing earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation (which we refer to as "Adjusted EBITDA") and the reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss. Adjusted EBITDA should be viewed as supplemental to, and not as an alternative for, net income (loss) and cash flows from operations calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is used by our management as an additional measure of our Company's performance for purposes of business decision-making, including developing budgets, managing expenditures, and evaluating potential acquisitions or divestitures. Period-to-period comparisons of Adjusted EBITDA help our management identify additional trends in our Company's financial results that may not be shown solely by period-to-period comparisons of net income (loss) and cash flows from operations. In addition, we may use Adjusted EBITDA in the incentive compensation programs applicable to many of our employees in order to evaluate our Company's performance. Further, we believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in their analysis of our results and helps investors make comparisons between our company and other companies that may have different capital structures, different effective income tax rates and tax attributes, different capitalized asset values and/or different forms of employee compensation. Our management recognizes that Adjusted EBITDA has inherent limitations because of the excluded items, particularly those items that are recurring in nature. In order to compensate for those limitations, management also reviews the specific items that are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA, but included in net income (loss), as well as trends in those items.
