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.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
"For over 25 years we have been working with a lot of enterprise customers and we have seen how companies create applications. And now that we have moved to cloud computing, mobile, social and the Internet of Things, we see that the market needs a new way of creating applications," stated Jesse Shiah, CEO, President and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 15th Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
