June 30, 2014 Financial Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, revenues were $369,931, as compared to $264,325 for the same period in 2013.  Metal cutting revenue was up at $268,924 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to $217,659 for the six months ended June 30, 2013.  Metal cutting revenue was up primarily due to the addition of new customers and demolition projects. In addition, overall revenue was up due to the recognition of the balance of the proceeds received from the sale of the gasification system to Kazakhstan.

Operating expenses increased 1% from $3,135,941 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to $3,170,612 for the six months ended June 30, 2014.  This increase was attributed to expenses related to investor relations and research and development related to co-combustion and the oil processing unit. This was offset by general cost savings implemented in the general and administrative area in this quarter. In addition, stock based compensation decreased from $785,294 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to $732,028 for the six months ended June 30, 2014.
