FSI Announces a Decrease in First Quarter Revenue



VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 27, 2017 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients and water treatment as well as crop nutrient availability chemistry. Flexible Solutions also manufactures biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces a year over year decrease in revenues for first quarter (Q1) 2017.


Sales were lower in Q1, 2017 than in Q1, 2016. Flexible Solutions’ top line revenue decreased from $5.30 million (Q1, 2016) to $4.66 million (Q1, 2017), down 12% year over year.


CEO Dan O’Brien states, “Some of the revenue shortfall, which was expected, is the result of the fire at the Taber, Alberta facility. The remainder consists of orders pushed into second quarter and one large agriculture sale lost for the year due to the customer having inventory left from 2016.” Mr. O’Brien continues, “We look forward to the rest of the year, expecting that positive news will exceed negative news and that revenue growth will resume.”


Complete financial results will be available on May 15, 2017 concurrent with our SEC quarterly filings. A conference call will be scheduled for 8:00am Pacific Time, 11:00 am Eastern Standard Time, the following day, May 16. See the FSI May 15, 2017 financials news release for the dial in numbers.
