OREM, Utah, March 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reflect Scientific, Inc. (Symbol: RSCF), a provider of diverse products and services for biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and transportation industries, today announced financial results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020.
“I am pleased to report that the 2020 end of year sales figures for Reflect Scientific Inc. were significantly higher than for 2019. Our team has worked hard to achieve those sales by providing market-driven low-temperature refrigeration solutions to our customers and maintaining a steady supplies business. Heading into 2021, we are leveraging our momentum and increasing our market presence to achieve even greater success,” stated Mr. Kim Boyce, CEO of Reflect Scientific.
Our full year 2020 revenue as compared to 2019 was as follows:
|Years Ended December 31|
|(in thousands)||2020||2019||% Change|
ULT Freezers/Solvent Chillers
The ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers and solvent chillers have been the engine for the growth of Reflect Scientific and will continue to be in the foreseeable future. The fiscal year 2020 ended with total revenue for the ULT freezer/solvent chiller products of $1.95 million, a 166% increase in revenue over the fiscal year 2019.
Cryometrix brand blast freezers have enabled many new technologies introduced by pharmaceutical companies to achieve significant cost savings, production throughput, and storage efficiency. The extremely rapid cooling of large payloads while maintaining precise temperature control makes our Cryometrix brand ULT freezers stand out as an exceptional product in the ULT freezer market. As the demand for biopharmaceuticals grows, we expect a parallel growth of the Cryometrix brand ULT freezers.
Reflect Scientific continues to innovate in the ULT freezer market, introducing several new models and configurations in 2020. Because of their unique ability to cool to very low temperatures without using mechanical refrigeration pumps, the Cryometrix brand ULT freezers address many unmet needs in the cold chain management market. We have responded by providing new air and land transportation designs and will continue to innovate in 2021.
Solvent chillers were rapidly adopted in 2020 by the CBD market to extract cannabinoids from hemp plants. The Cryometrix solvent chiller can rapidly cool extraction solvents to a temperature that makes for more efficient extraction of the desired product from the plant material. It is cost-effective and easy to incorporate into the manufacturing process. We expect this product line to expand into other areas of natural product extraction in 2021.
The supplies market is a steady source of revenue for Reflect Scientific. Much of the 4% decrease in revenue can be attributed to supply issues and distribution disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect this product segment to remain steady throughout 2021, barring any continued consequences of the pandemic.
Reflect Scientific maintains a robust program of intellectual property protection. A total of 29 patents have been issued or assigned to Reflect Scientific, with several more expected in 2021.
- Total revenue for the full year 2020 increased to $2.79 million compared to $1.61 million for the full year 2019, a year-over-year gain of 74%.
- The supplies business ended the full year 2020 at $843,000 a slight decrease of 3.9% from the full-year revenue of $877,000 in 2019.
- The gross margin was 62% for the full year 2020, unchanged from the full year 2019.
- Operating costs and expenses decreased by $116,000 to $1.07 million for the full year 2020 compared to $1.19 million in the prior year.
- Net income of $660,000 for the full year 2020 compared to a loss of $196,000 for the prior year.
- Reflect Scientific reported $643,000 in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments as of December 31, 2020, compared with $555,000 as of December 31, 2019.
- On March 30, 2021, Reflect Scientific filed a Registration Statement on Form 10 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which Registration Statement is subject to SEC review and amendment by Reflect Scientific in response to any SEC comments. Upon effectiveness of the Form 10, which we expect to occur 60 days after the filing date, Reflect Scientific will return to “fully reporting” status with the SEC. The Form 10 is available for viewing on the SEC website (www.sec.gov) under the Reflect Scientific name and ticker (RSCF).
