Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. Reports 2014 First Quarter Financial Results

GOLDEN, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. (SEER) (PINKSHEETS: SENR), a provider of next-generation clean technologies, renewable fuel and waste management innovations, today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First quarter revenue increased 8% to $2.8 million from revenue of $2.6 million in the first quarter last year. Services revenue grew 36% year over year to $2.3 million from $1.7 million, more than offsetting a decrease in product revenue from $0.9 million to $0.5 million for the comparative first quarters.

Services revenue includes industrial and rail car cleaning services performed by the Company's REGS and Tactical Cleaning subsidiaries, both of which carried growth momentum from 2013 into the first quarter of 2014. Product revenue, which is comprised of air quality, fugitive emissions and renewable fuel solutions provided by the Company's MV Technologies subsidiary, declined primarily due to timing issues involving project revenue recognition. MV is, however, expected to show solid growth in 2014 over 2013. Paragon Waste Solutions continues to win new business and is expected to begin contributing more significantly to revenue as its CoronaLux™ systems are placed into service later this year.

SEER continued to implement its aggressive growth initiatives during the first quarter and, as a result, total operating expenses increased to $3.9 million from $2.8 million year over year. Of the $1.1 million increase, $700,000 was attributable to non-cash stock-based compensation expense. The remaining increase was primarily due to increased staffing at the executive level to support current and future growth and also to costs associated with the commercial implementation of Paragon's waste destruction technology.

As a result of increased expenses, 64% of which were non-cash, SEER reported a net loss attributable to SEER common stockholders of $1.0 million, or $0.02 per share, versus a net loss of $0.2 million, or less than $0.01 per share, in the first quarter last year. Modified EBITDA for the first quarter was a loss of $305,100.

"We are pleased the Company has continued its growth momentum into the first quarter," said J. John Combs III, chairman and CEO. "Despite exceptionally cold weather that reduced activity at several operating locations, our environmental and industrial services businesses performed very well, growing revenue by 36%. This growth more than offset lower product revenue from our MV Technologies division. We saw this coming since MV uses a project revenue recognition model based on percent of completion accounting and revenue can vary on a quarter-to-quarter basis independent of new orders and cash received. In the first quarter, we attended several industry conferences and saw increased interest in MV's products for odor control, fugitive emissions management and renewable fuels so we are confident this level of activity, combined with MV's existing project pipeline, will position the business for solid full-year revenue growth in 2014.

"We are also pleased that SEER's Paragon Waste Solutions business continued to secure prepaid customer commitments for its CoronaLux™ waste destruction systems," Combs added. "In the first quarter, approximately $436,000 of cash from these customers was received but deferred and will be amortized under our accounting practices. SEER invested approximately $0.7 million in the manufacture of CoronaLux™ systems during the first quarter and now has a total of five units either deployed or in transit for installation in the medical waste and oil and gas refining markets. As of March 31, 2014, Paragon secured customer commitments totaling approximately $1.0 million in up-front license fees and in the third quarter of 2014 expects to begin receiving on-going revenue-split royalties or monthly licensing payments from units already placed. Accordingly, we expect Paragon to contribute to revenue and overall profitability in 2014 and beyond."
