Flexible Solutions Announces Full Year, 2012 Financial Results


Conference call
is scheduled for April 02, 2013. See the time and dial in number below.

VICTORIA, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)– FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE Amex: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), isthe 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 full year ended December 31, 2012.

Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “We are, once again, very pleased to announce record revenue. 2012 revenue was 6% higher than revenue from the 2011 period and revenue growth is expected to continue in 2013. The economic slow-down in Europe and the drought in North America both played a part in the overall reduction in year over year revenue growth. The European slow down reduced revenue from bio-detergents and the drought reduced the growth rate of sales into the North American Agriculture market.”

Mr. O’Brien continues, “The effects of last year’s drought are still present in 2013. Our mid-west distribution has not taken up as much product in Q1 2013 as in Q1 2012. Reasons for this include; more growers and dealers who choose just in time purchases to conserve cash after last year as well as space and cash constraints at the distribution level. FSI management will release the Q1 revenue number next week once it has been finalized, however, we are already sure that Q1 revenue will be several hundred thousand dollars less than the year earlier period. Conversations with our distribution network indicate that they believe the sales not closed in Q1 will be made in Q2 and Q3 and strong growth in the sector is still expected for full year 2013.

  • Sales for the full year 2012 were $16,400,107, up 6%, when compared to $15,518,635 for full year 2011. The result was an after tax GAAP accounting net loss of $1,084,447, or $0.08 per weighted average share, compared to an accounting net income of $182,990, or $0.01 per weighted average share in full year 2011.
  • Non-GAAP operating cash flow: (for details see the following table). For the 12 months ending Dec. 31, 2012 net income (loss) reflects $1,326,983 of non-cash charges, …read more

SL Industries Announces 2012 Full Year and Fourth Quarter Results

MT. LAUREL, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– SL INDUSTRIES, INC. (NYSE MKT: SLI); (“SLI” or the “Company”) operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 are summarized in the following paragraphs. Please read the Company’s Form 10-K, which can be found at www.slindustries.com, for a full discussion of the operating results.


Fourth Quarter Results

Net sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, were $51.5 million, compared with net sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 of $51.4 million.

Income from continuing operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $3.6 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $3.1 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Included in income from continuing operations during the fourth quarter of 2011 was $0.3 million of restructuring costs.

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $3.0 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 included a net loss from discontinued operations of $0.7 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to a net loss from discontinued operations of $4.8 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2011. The loss from discontinued operations in 2012 relates to environmental remediation costs, consulting fees, legal charges and possible claims associated with the past operations of the Company’s five environmental sites. In 2011, the majority of the loss in discontinued operations was related to a $5.2 million, after-tax charge, recorded in the fourth quarter, for environmental obligations related to the Company’s Pennsauken site. The net loss from discontinued operations in 2011 was partially offset by a change in the estimated effective state tax rates. The change increased the benefit on losses incurred in discontinued operations.

The Company generated Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $5.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2011, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 3%. See “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measurements” below for the definition of Adjusted EBITDA.

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Fourth graph, first sentence of release should read: If you purchased the common stock of Spectrum from August 8, 2012 through March 12, 2013 (the “Class”) and you wish to serve as lead plaintiff in this action, you must move the Court no later than May 13, 2013. (sted May 16, 2013).

The corrected release reads:

ABRAHAM, FRUCHTER & TWERSKY, LLP ANNOUNCES THAT A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT HAS BEEN FILED AGAINST SPECTRUM PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.

Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased the common stock of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Spectrum” or the “Company”) (NAS: SPPI) from August 8, 2012 through March 12, 2013, inclusive (the “Class Period“). The complaint alleges violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, promulgated thereunder, against the Company and certain of its officers and directors.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements to the investing public by dismissing concerns that sales of FUSILEV® (an oncology drug manufactured by Spectrum) would be adversely affected by increased supplies of leucovorin (a generic and competing drug of FUSILEV) and concealing the impact that the increased availability of leucovorin would have on FUSILEV sales. The complaint alleges that the defendants knew that when the availability of leucovorin increased, Spectrum would not be able to sustain its business outlook and revenue projections.

After the market closed on March 12, 2013, Spectrum surprised the market by reporting in a press release that sales of FUSILEV would be dropping significantly due to “a change in ordering patterns of FUSILEV.” The Company also decreased their full-year 2013 revenues forecast to a range of $160 to $180 million, significantly lower than analysts’ revenue expectations of $297.33 million. In a reaction to this news, shares of Spectrum common stock fell $4.64 per share, or 37%, on extremely high trading volume of 22.5 million shares.
