    Sono-Tek Reports Sales of $3.48 million in Second Quarter Fiscal 2021 and 50% Increase in Net Income and Provides Second Half FY2021 Sales Guidance

    * Second quarter revenues increased 4% to $3.48 million; second quarter gross margin was 46.6% versus 46.2% * Second quarter net income increased 50% to $178,000 * First half FY2021 sales of $6.9 million increased 12% year-over-year; net income of $346,000, more than doubled from the $140,000 reported in the prior year period * Backlog increased 45% to $5.1 million from February 29, 2020 * Second half of fiscal 2021, ending November 30, 2020, is expected to continue on the increasing sales trend experienced in the second quarter, as global industrial businesses continue to recover.MILTON, N.Y., Oct. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire \-- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTCQX: SOTK), the leading developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic coating systems, today reported financial results for its fiscal year 2021 second quarter and year-to-date period ended August 31, 2020.Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Chairman and CEO, commented, “In the second quarter of FY2021, Sono-Tek recorded 4% revenue growth and a 50% increase in our bottom line compared to last year’s second quarter. The increase in net income reflects growth in revenue and gross profit as well as tight expense control and reductions. The Coronavirus has impacted some of our customers, particularly in the timing of orders, but we have been able to win orders in other areas to maintain some of our pre-Covid positive momentum, as demonstrated by the first half of the year 45% increase in backlog. We believe that our performance has been excellent given the uncertainties that most businesses have faced this year.”“The growth in sales was driven by a significant shipment of an integrated coating system for the industrial market valued at $400k, plus a strong quarter for Multi-Axis coating machines sold to the Alternative Energy market, which combined to offset the slight decrease in sales of fluxing systems and other smaller units. The Alternative Energy market growth was driven by US companies interested in electrolyzer and fuel cell coating equipment, which is associated with carbon reduction energy supply. Our Medical business experienced a dip in revenue as several orders were put on hold due to COVID, but we are optimistic these will come back as various countries come back online,” continued Dr. Coccio.“Our strategy to provide customers with a high level of application engineering support, in combination with large complex ultrasonic coating systems that are often highly customized, continues to cushion our business in these difficult times. For example, in July we announced a $1.5 million order for a highly engineered proprietary 6-axis ultrasonic coating system for an important European customer in the electronics industry. This order is among the largest orders that we’ve received in our history and is a direct result of the close collaboration between our engineers and the customer.  These types of orders have increased in frequency over the past few years, and importantly, have increased our average revenue per order from tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars currently.”  “As a result of the increase in our backlog this quarter, we are expecting third quarter revenues to increase over the second quarter and for this trend to continue through the balance of the fiscal year, ending February 28, 2021. Sono-Tek’s flexibility in quickly refocusing its efforts to those countries that are operational has been helpful in softening the impact of the pandemic and will continue to be a part of our strategy for the foreseeable future,” concluded Dr. Coccio.

From a product sales perspective, the Alternative Energy market showed significant growth, primarily driven by sales to US - based companies for electrolyzer coating equipment used for fuel cell manufacturing and advanced carbon emission reduction technology. The Company also recorded a strong quarter from the Industrial market resulting from the latest developed float glass coating platform shipping to a US - based customer.   Quarterly demand and revenue in any of the Market or Product baskets typically varies due to the size and timing of orders, as a result, the multi-quarter totals at year-end are often more significant than reported in individual quarters, reflecting overall Market and Product trends.In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, approximately 38% of sales originated outside of the United States and Canada compared with 72% in the prior-year period.  The decrease in sales originating outside the US and Canada was influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the Company experienced a decrease in orders from several geographic territories outside the US during COVID-19 peaks.For the second quarter of fiscal 2021, gross profit increased $74,000, or 5%, compared with the prior-year period. Gross profit margin was 46.6% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 versus 46.2% in the comparable period. Operating income increased by $109,000, more than doubling to $201,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with $92,000 for the prior year period. Growth in revenue and gross profit were key factors in the improvement. Operating margin for the quarter increased to 5.8% compared with 2.8% in the prior year period. Operating leverage enabled the Company to increase its net income by $63,000, or 55%, to $178,000 compared with $115,000 for the comparable period.  Balance Sheet and Cash Flow OverviewCash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at quarter-end were $7,825 million, a modest decrease from February 29, 2020, the end of fiscal year 2020.  The decrease was the result of the timing of working capital requirements primarily due to increases in accounts receivable and inventories and decreases in customer deposits and accounts payable. Higher inventory is necessary to address both customer demand for shorter delivery cycles and increased order levels.Year-to-date capital expenditures were $290,000 compared with $319,000 in the prior-year period. The fiscal 2021 expenditures do not reflect $100,000 in grant proceeds received during the second quarter.  The current period’s capital expenditures are for upgrades to the Company’s manufacturing facilities.  Sono-Tek anticipates total capital expenditures to be approximately $0.5 million to $0.6 million in fiscal 2021.At August 31, 2020, the Company had total debt of $1.6 million, comprised of $1.0 million in a PPP loan under the CARES Act and $624,000 in mortgage debt on the Company’s industrial park complex that accrues annual interest at a rate of 4.15%.   About Sono-TekSono-Tek Corporation is the leading developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic coating systems for applying precise, thin film coatings to protect, strengthen or smooth surfaces on parts and components for the microelectronics/electronics, alternative energy, medical and industrial markets, including specialized glass applications in construction and automotive.The Company’s solutions are environmentally-friendly, efficient and highly reliable, and enable dramatic reductions in overspray, savings in raw material, water and energy usage and provide improved process repeatability, transfer efficiency, high uniformity and reduced emissions.Sono-Tek’s growth strategy is focused on leveraging its innovative technologies, proprietary know-how, unique talent and experience, and global reach to further develop thin film coating technologies that enable better outcomes for its customers’ products and processes.  For further information, visit www.sono-tek.com.Safe Harbor Statement This news release contains forward looking statements regarding future events and the future performance of Sono-Tek Corporation that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These factors include, among other considerations, general economic and business conditions; political, regulatory,  tax, competitive and technological developments affecting our operations or the demand for our products; the duration and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic; the extent and duration of the pandemic’s adverse effect on economic and social activity, consumer confidence, discretionary spending and preferences, labor and healthcare costs, and unemployment rates, any of which may reduce demand for some of our products and impair the ability of those with whom we do business to satisfy their obligations to us; our ability to sell and provide our services and products, including as a result of continued pandemic related travel restrictions, mandatory business closures, and stay-at home or similar orders; any temporary reduction in our workforce, closures of our offices and facilities and our ability to adequately staff and maintain our operations resulting from the pandemic; the ability of our customers and suppliers to continue their operations as result of the pandemic, which could result in terminations of contracts, losses of revenue; the recovery of the Electronics/Microelectronics and Medical markets following COVID-19 related slowdowns; the forgiveness of our PPP loan; and further adverse effects to our supply chain; maintenance of increased order backlog, including effects of any COVID-19 related cancellations; the imposition of tariffs; timely development and market acceptance of new products and continued customer validation of our coating technologies; adequacy of financing; capacity additions, the ability to enforce patents; maintenance of operating leverage; consummation of order proposals; completion of large orders on schedule and on budget; successful transition from primarily selling ultrasonic nozzles and components to a more complex business providing complete machine solutions and higher value subsystems; and realization of quarterly and annual revenues as forecasted.  We refer you to documents that the company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which includes Form 10-K and Form 10-Qs containing additional important information.

    Sono-Tek Holds Annual Shareholders Meeting and Provides Sales Guidance for Remainder of Fiscal Year 2021

    MILTON, N.Y., Aug. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTCQX: SOTK), the leading developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic coating systems, today announced that it held its Annual Shareholders Meeting on August 20, 2020 as a virtual meeting, due to the coronavirus. The presenters safely gathered at the Company’s headquarters in Milton, New York, and the presentation is available online at the Company’s website, http://www.sono-tek.com/investor-relations/. The results of Fiscal Year 2020, which ended on February 29, 2020, were discussed. During the meeting, Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Chairman and CEO, highlighted the 2020 fiscal year business performance which resulted in a more than 32% year-over-year increase in sales to $15.3 million, and a seven fold increase in net income to over $1.1 million.   Dr. Coccio also noted that the recently reported fiscal first quarter of 2021 (March-May 2020), showed a 21% increase in revenue over the fiscal 2020 first quarter. The Company also expects to report revenue gains over last year’s second quarter, ending August 31st and to be reported in mid-October. “Sono-Tek’s results this fiscal year are benefitting from the long cycle backlog that was in place prior to the impact of Covid-19. For the balance of the 2021 fiscal year, we expect a slight softening of orders from some of our market segments due to the impact of COVID-19. However, offsetting this, we disclosed the receipt of two major orders in July 2020, totaling over $3 million, half of which is anticipated to ship in fiscal year 2021.  Sono-Tek has also recently applied to up-list to the NASDAQ exchange which should provide more liquidity for our common stock if our application is successful,” concluded Dr. Coccio.Steve Harshbarger, Sono-Tek’s President, added, “Sono-Tek’s outlook remains bright.  Although COVID-19 has resulted in several orders being put on hold or delayed, our growth strategy to sell higher priced full system solutions continues to be successful.   Looking to the second half of the current 2021 fiscal year, we are projecting the third quarter to show modest year-over-year growth and to finish FY2021 in a strong position.”The Company’s slide show presentation used at the annual meeting and a video presentation is available on the Company’s website at http://www.sono-tek.com/investor-relations/.About Sono-TekSono-Tek Corporation is the leading developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic coating systems for applying precise, thin film coatings to protect, strengthen or smooth surfaces on parts and components for the microelectronics/electronics, alternative energy, medical and industrial markets, including specialized glass applications in construction and automotive.The Company’s solutions are environmentally-friendly, efficient and highly reliable, and enable dramatic reductions in overspray, savings in raw material, water and energy usage and provide improved process repeatability, transfer efficiency, high uniformity and reduced emissions.Sono-Tek’s growth strategy is focused on leveraging its innovative technologies, proprietary know-how, unique talent and experience, and global reach to further develop microscopic coating technologies that enable better outcomes for its customers’ products and processes.For further information, visit www.sono-tek.com.Safe Harbor StatementWe discuss expectations regarding our future performance, such as our business outlook, in our annual and quarterly reports, press releases, and other written and oral statements.
