HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwired – Aug 10, 2017) – FLAME SEAL PRODUCTS, INC. (OTC PINK: FLMP), a leading provider of Specialty Chemicals for the Passive Fire Protection Market, today issues the following update to its Stockholders.
From: Craig Keyser, CEO
Subject: June 30, 2017 Second Quarter Results and Corporate Update
Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 were $687,666, an $87,786, a 15% increase compared to the March 31, 2017 quarter and a $180,677 decrease or 21% less than the robust June 30, 2016 quarter.
Craig Keyser comments, “Flame Seal’s sales recovered and stabilized in the second quarter of 2017after disappointing sales in the first quarter. At the same, we are transitioning from our legacy products to FSP’s next generation technology which is intended to penetrate far larger markets requiring flame retardant protection for public safety. With added technical expertise and equipment upgrades, we are building a portfolio of products and an R & D inventory of future thermal barrier, ignition barrier, and flame retardant candidates. As pointed out in May, management and the Board of Directors are focusing our resources to maximize results and ensure future profitability.”
For the quarter ending June 30, 2017 FSP’s net loss was $26,112. This small loss was largely a result of our development and testing of new products. The importance of these programs to the long-term success of our company cannot be overstated.
During the first six months of 2017 gross operating margins held steady at 52%. Operations are stable at the current level of sales with existing product offerings but will improve with higher sales resulting from successful testing and certifications.
Balance Sheet Status
FSP’s current ratio at 4.3 improved from 3.8 and remains healthy. Receivables remain current as we maintain an adequate level of cash to navigate through our product line transition. As of June 30, 2017, FSP had 63,498,153 shares outstanding.
Craig Keyser notes, “Since 2013, we’ve dramatically improved our financial results and condition, but 2017 has presented some unexpected challenges. Even so, we are continuing to expand our customer base with higher volume, recurring business and we are building a team to take us to next level of customer support and profitability. We appreciate our stockholders’ ongoing support and trust.”
