Sono-Tek Announces Second Quarter Results and Fiscal Year Guidance

MILTON, N.Y., Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC QX: SOTK) today announced sales of $2,674,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2017, compared to sales of $2,310,000 for the prior year period, an increase of $364,000 or 16%.  The Company's second quarter sales level also increased over first quarter sales, as expected, and as communicated to shareholders in the Company's recent press releases. The current quarter's revenue increase compared to last year occurred in most of the Company's business segments and geographic markets, as customers showed increasing confidence in the global economy. The Company also expects to see a continued upward trend in revenues for the remainder of the fiscal year based on orders, backlog, and quotation activity. These sales trends have been anticipated and communicated to shareholders in the Company's recent press releases.

The Company reported net income of $55,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $90,000 for the prior year period.  The improvement over the prior year period is due to increased revenue which resulted in higher gross profit, also, the Company's fixed overhead costs remained steady as revenue levels increased. The Company's second quarter net income was an increase when compared to the first quarter.  The Company expects to see increased profitability in the second half of this year as well and to achieve overall profitability for the current Fiscal Year.

Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Sono-Tek's Chairman and CEO stated that, "Sono-Tek has experienced quarterly and annual revenue fluctuations in the past, primarily due to economic factors or the timing of larger shipments to its customers. Sono-Tek has proven resiliency in riding out these ups and downs, and expects to continue to do so. The Company has accumulated a significant amount of cash and marketable securities in recent years, which cushions it from these revenue variations, while still permitting the Company to pursue a strategy of adding new ultrasonic product applications to its market basket. This strategy has allowed the Company to grow organically in the past, and it expects to do so in the future."
