Aug 14, 2013, 09:00 ET from MagneGas Corporation

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), the developer of a technology that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based metal working fuel, today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.  During the period, the Company refocused its domestic business development strategy on expanding gas sales through regional distributors.  Internationally, the Company continued to pursue ongoing opportunities for the sales of equipment for liquid sterilization and fuel production.  Additionally, MagneGas added new independent board members with specific industry experience in relevant market sectors.

The Company developed a new strategic plan with a focus on generating revenue in several key areas.  This plan includes securing recurring revenue through gas sales to regional distributors, producing revenue through large equipment sales to customers in international markets and the development of key strategic relationships for long-term growth.  To that end, the Company pursued several regional distributors for gas sales in the metal working market, focusing on those distributors with existing prior relationships with its new Senior Vice President of Industrial Gas Sales, Bryan George.  The Company also signed several new independent brokers in international markets where it believes there is the most potential for sales, and it recruited a new executive consultant with experience in plasma technology to develop new strategic relationships domestically.

June 30, 2013 Highlights:

  • Operating expenses decreased for the quarter to $1,504,497 versus $2,238,087 for the same period prior year
  • The Company added a new Chairman and new members to the Board of Directors. It also recruited a new Chief Scientist;
  • Strategic partnerships with General Motors, the US Navy, and two metropolitan fire departments progressed while new strategic relationship were pursued; and
  • The Company completed an underwritten public offering for $2,455,325.

June 30, 2013 Financial Results

For the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013, revenues were $133,475, as compared to $188,973 for the same period in 2012.  Metal cutting revenue was down at $110,142 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $165,640 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  This was primarily due to the change in the Company's sales strategy and larger one-time sales in the prior period.

Operating expenses decreased 33% from $2,238,087 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 to $1,504,497 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  This decrease was attributed to cost savings implemented in this quarter.  In addition, stock based compensation decreased from $1,021,525 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 to $384,700 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  The Company had an operating loss of $2,166,253 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, as compared to an operating loss of $1,451,908 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  

The Company continued to show progress in various strategic and sales relationships as previously announced in its Annual Report on Form 10-K.  An update to these relationships is as follows:

  • The Company is working with General Motors to test various liquid wastes for processing and conversion to MagneGas in order to fuel several possible internal projects. This testing continued and several liquids were analyzed and tested.
  • The US Navy continues to be interested in MagneGas fuel for metal cutting applications such as in the decommissioning of ships and the Company has provided further testing data as requested.  The Navy has added a requirement that the fuel must not contain carbon monoxide. To that end the Company is in the process of developing this new fuel and is currently testing various methods to achieve the required results.
  • The Company is working with two major metropolitan fire departments to test MagneGas as a replacement to acetylene and other cutting systems used by firefighters.  This project is continuing with positive results to date.
