Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. Reports Record Second Quarter Revenue and Earnings

Q2 Revenue up 46% to a Record $4.3 Million From $2.9 Million in Q2 Last Year

GOLDEN, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. (SEER) (OTCQB: SENR), a provider of next-generation clean technologies, renewable fuel and waste management innovations, today announced results for its second quarter and six-month period ended June 30, 2014.

"Our sustained focus on top-line growth while carefully monitoring operating costs resulted in record revenue of $4.3 million, record net income of $464,600 and modified EBITDA of $546,200 in the second quarter," said J. John Combs III, Chairman and CEO. "We had a very strong performance by our expanding industrial cleaning businesses, which combined to achieve 77% revenue growth year over year. It is also important to note that our Paragon waste destruction subsidiary has successfully placed its first units, the result of which generated $743,000 in cash and $78,000 in revenue. We're very pleased to see our investment in Paragon contributing so significantly since its recent launch, confirming our expectation that Paragon is an important long-term growth opportunity for SEER."

Second Quarter Results
Total second quarter revenue increased 46% to a record $4.3 million from $2.9 million in the same quarter last year. Services revenue increased 77% year over year to $3.1 million from $1.8 million due to higher demand for the Company's industrial solutions. Services revenue includes industrial and rail car cleaning services performed by the Company's REGS and Tactical Cleaning subsidiaries. The significant increase in services revenue more than offsets a slight decline in product revenue -- to $1.1 million from $1.2 million -- as commencement of certain environmental projects moved from the second quarter into the third quarter. The majority of product revenue was generated by the Company's MV Technologies subsidiary, although the Paragon Waste Solutions subsidiary generated its initial recognizable revenue -- $78,000 -- in the second quarter as the Company continued its transition from development phase into product rollout phase for its CoronaLux™ waste destruction systems. Paragon continues to win new business and is expected to begin contributing more significantly to revenue as additional CoronaLux™ systems are placed into service in medical and refinery waste applications.

Total operating expenses increased 30% to $3.9 million in the second quarter compared to $3.0 million in the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily due to higher services costs in support of the 77% increase in services revenue as well as to increased staffing and other costs in support of the rollout of Paragon's waste destruction technology.

Net income attributable to SEER common stockholders increased to a record $464,600, or $0.01 per share, from a net loss of $17,300, or less than one cent per share, in the second quarter last year. Modified EBITDA before non-controlling interest for the second quarter was $546,200 as compared with $64,700 in the same quarter last year.

Six-Month Results
Revenue in the first half of 2014 increased 28% to $7.1 million from $5.5 million in the same period last year. Services revenue increased 57% year over year to $5.4 million from $3.4 million, reflecting growing demand for the Company's industrial cleaning solutions. Product revenue declined 23% year over year to $1.6 million from $2.1 million but is expected to increase in the second half 2014. Paragon, which received customer deposits and license fees for its CoronaLux™ systems of $743,000 in the first six months of 2014, amortizes revenue under terms of its customer contracts, so non-refundable deposits and license fees received is a more accurate leading indicator of divisional growth and future revenue.

Total operating expenses increased 34% to $7.8 million from $5.8 million for the comparative six-month periods. This increase was attributable to increased labor expenses and higher costs of services generally in line with service revenue growth, and higher selling, general and administrative expense in support of overall revenue growth and start-up activities associated with Paragon's nationwide product rollout. Net loss attributable to SEER stockholders through six months was $570,600, or $0.01 per share, versus $188,800, or less than one cent per share, in the same period last year. Modified EBITDA before non-controlling interest was $207,900 through six months versus a loss of $58,700 in the same period last year.
