Puradyn Announces 3rd Quarter Financial Results

BOYNTON BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - Puradyn Filter Technologies Incorporated (OTCBB: PFTI), the global bypass oil filtration system manufacturer, today reported results of operations for the third fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Net sales for the three months ending September 30, 2011 decreased approximately $552,000, or 49.9%, from approximately $1.11 million to approximately $555,000 for the three months ending September 30, 2010. Net sales year-to-date for the nine-month period decreased by approximately 23.8% or $605,000; from approximately $2.54 million in 2010 to approximately $1.94 million in 2011.

Gross profit, as a percentage of sales, decreased from 37.1% in the three months ending September 30, 2010 to 11.9% in the three months ending September 30, 2011. Gross profit, as a percentage of sales, decreased from 35.7% in the nine months ending September 30, 2010 to 23.9% in the nine months ending September 30, 2011. The increase in cost of goods sold, which generates a lower gross profit, is primarily attributable to the fixed manufacturing overhead costs that aren't absorbed under lower sales volumes. Other increases in cost of products sold included higher costs of raw materials (particularly steel and cotton), rework charges and increased wages and benefit costs. Additionally, an adjustment to inventory reserves in the first quarter of 2010 reduced cost of sales; there was no adjustment recorded in 2011.

The Company reported a net loss of approximately $497,000 or ($0.01) per share, basic and diluted, for the quarter ended September 30 2011, compared to a net loss of approximately $132,000 or ($0.003) per share, basic and diluted, for the same period in 2010; and a net loss of approximately $1.275 million or ($0.03) per share, basic and diluted for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 compared to a net loss of approximately $837,000 or ($0.02) per share, basic and diluted, for the same period in 2010. Basic and diluted weighted average shares used in the calculation for the three-months ended 2011 and 2010 were 46,576,786 and 45,533,367, respectively.

Kevin G. Kroger, President and COO, said, "Sales for the third quarter this year were up 13% over second quarter 2011, and down substantially over the third quarter 2010. However, the third quarter 2010 was the best quarter recorded in the history of our company. One of our new customers, after completion of a period in which they experienced considerable savings with the installed Puradyn systems, placed a very large order in the third quarter of 2010. These types of savings are starting to be recognized by a few other customers, which we believe will lead to additional sales over the remainder of this year and into the first quarter 2011.

"The third quarter this year brought the announcement of our relationship as a supplier of engine bypass oil filtration systems to the John Deere Construction and Forestry division. Our company was also awarded a new patent which will provide a roadmap to our next generation products. These accomplishments culminated from years of hard work and dedication on the part of our entire TEAM."

Kroger concluded, "We remain focused on our target industries and are optimistic they will strengthen the Company's overall position."
