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.

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
