MagneGas Reports Financial Results For The Third Quarter And First Nine Months Of 2012

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), the developer of a technology that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based metal working fuel, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights:

  • Total revenues of $201,096 for the third quarter of 2012 increased 147% as compared to $81,253 for the prior year's third quarter;
  • Metal cutting revenues increased 207% to $177,763 as compared to $57,920 in the third quarter of 2011; and
  • Quarterly cash balance of $4.3 million as compared to $147,000 for the same period ending September 30, 2011

"We made good progress during the third quarter of 2012 as we continued to ramp up production, win new customers and demonstrate the superior metal cutting properties of our MagneGas fuel," stated Ermanno Santilli, Chief Executive Officer of MagneGas. "We are committed to staying focused on our business plan as we expand our footprint through out the metal cutting industry."

Santilli concluded, "We also believe that demand for MagneGas refineries, which provide an excellent value proposition for customers looking to produce MagneGas fuel in-house and on-site, will continue to increase over the next several quarters. In August, we shipped a 160 kW refinery to RJ Torching, one of the largest scrap yards in Michigan. We also purchased a 3.5 acre facility adjacent to our headquarters that will allow us to manufacture up to 30 refineries at one time. We are now well positioned to meet the steadily increasing demand for our products."   

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

For the third quarter of 2012, total revenues were $201,096, an increase of $119,843 or 147%, from revenues of $81,253 for the third quarter of 2011. 

Metal cutting revenues were $177,763 for the third quarter of 2012, a 207% increase over metal cutting revenues of $57,920 for the prior year's third quarter. Metal cutting revenues as a percentage of total revenues for the third quarter of 2011 were 88% as compared to 71% in the prior year's third quarter.  Licensing fees were $23,333 for the third quarter of 2012, the same as for the prior year's third quarter. 

Operating expenses were $2,166,514 for the third quarter of 2012, increasing 254% from operating expenses of $612,773 for the prior year's third quarter, primarily due to the opening of new facilities, the addition of executives and staff to manage sales and production efforts, and investments in research & development. The Company had an operating loss in the third quarter of 2012 of $2,099,034, compared to an operating loss of $587,011 for the prior year's third quarter.

The Company recorded a net loss of $2,098,385, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, as compared to a net loss of $366,041, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011.

The Company has focused on selling fuel to scrap yards and demolition companies for much of 2012.  But a decrease in scrap steel prices during the 3rd quarter, with a corresponding decrease in cutting and fuel use in this market, resulted in lower than anticipated sales of MagneGas fuel in the 3rd quarter. The Company is now also focusing on selling fuel to those industries that benefit from lower steel prices such as fabricators and ship builders.  The intention is to diversify sales channels in order to hedge against the volatility of the scrap steel industry.

Nine Month Results

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, total revenues were $522,052, an increase of $295,949 or 131%, from revenues of $226,103 for the first nine months of 2011. 

Metal cutting revenues were $452,053 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, a 326% increase over metal cutting revenues of $106,104 for the same period in 2011. Metal cutting revenues as a percentage of total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 were 87% as compared to 47% for the same period in 2011.  Licensing fees were $69,999 for the first nine months of 2012, a 42% decrease over licensing fees of $119,999 for the same period last year. 

Operating expenses were $4,958,621 for the first nine months of 2012, increasing 187% from operating expenses of $1,725,620 for the same period in 2012, primarily due to the opening of new facilities, a rise in headcount to support sales and production efforts and investments in research & development. The Company had an operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 of $4,958,621, compared to an operating loss of $1,725,620 for the same period in 2011.

The Company recorded a net loss of $4,959,000, or $0.28 per basic and diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to a net loss of $1,080,508 or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2011.
