Represents 111% Year-Over-Year Growth
PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / July 11, 2019 / Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: TRNX), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental conservation industry, today announced June sales of $1.85 million. This represents 111% growth when compared to June 2018 sales of just under $0.875 million.
For the second quarter, the Company generated a Company record of $6.06 million of sales, which was 107% higher than the $2.9 million of sales reported for the same period in 2018. Sales growth has also been steadily accelerating, as the second quarter sales were approximately 20% higher than the $4.9 million reported for the first quarter of 2019.
“Our team has been doing an excellent job growing our revenues,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis. “We faced several challenges to revenue growth during the quarter. First, there has been a national shortage of helium, and this has caused us to lose several meaningful accounts in the southern California market. Additionally, we experienced a moderate seasonal slowdown in several of our markets which is typical during the peak summer months.”
“Historically, we would experience double digit decreases in sales from May to June. For example, in 2017 our June sales were 21% lower than in May due to seasonality. In 2018, our sales were almost 13% lower in June than in May. This year, our ability to drive new client growth offset much more of our seasonality, and we only saw a 9% change from May to June,” continued Mr. Mahoney.
“We are effectively leveraging our MagneGas product to gain new clients, conduct field demonstrations, and generate interest in our products and our Company. Our team is using this process to drive results, and we are optimistically looking forward to a very productive third quarter,” concluded Mr. Mahoney.
Additional sales growth details are as follows:
The Company experienced the highest year-over-year growth in the Texas-Louisiana market. Sales for the month of June for this region were just over $0.8 million. Sales increased almost 4.5x over the same period last year, as the Company has made a series of acquisitions that now make it one of the largest independent industrial gas distributors in the region.
The Company also experienced rapid year-over-year growth in June in the California market, which generated just under $0.8 million sales for. This represents approximately 65% growth compared to June of 2018, which was largely the result of the acquisition of Complete Welding in Los Angeles in February of this year. This area has been most affected by the national shortage of helium. The Company has identified a potential supply solution, and this could beneficially impact revenues for the Los Angeles market as early as August of 2019.
In the Florida market, sales were just over $0.25 million in May, largely unchanged when compared to the prior year. The Company is expected to launch its fully operational fill plant operations in Clearwater, Florida at the beginning of July. With this new capability, the Florida market has identified almost $2.0 million in potential new client opportunities that the Company could now effectively compete for against the largest distributors in the region. Management believes this development could have a significant impact on the Florida market’s outlook for growth going forward.
