Puradyn Filter Technologies Q3'14 Revenues Rose 47% to $829,000, Reflecting Increased Demand From the Oil and Gas, Commercial Marine and Mining Industries

Puradyn Filters Are Currently in Test by Several Major Customer Prospects Across Its Targeted Industries

BOYNTON BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2014) - Puradyn Filter Technologies Incorporated (OTCQB: PFTI), developer of puraDYN® bypass oil filtration systems that keep oil in high-value engines in "like new" condition, reducing oil changes and maintenance costs, today reported unaudited financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2014 (Q3'14).

Puradyn's Q3'14 net sales rose 47% to $829,000 versus Q3'13, principally due to increased purchases by three customers as well as an OEM, a major distributor, and initial new distributor demand. Approximately 57% of Q3 net sales represent replacement filter elements, with the balance representing new filtration systems and filtration application kits. 

Puradyn's gross profit margin rose to 37% in Q3'14 versus 32% in Q3'13, principally reflecting an improving mix of higher margin products and pricing. Gross margin also benefitted from improved component pricing as Puradyn secured alternative sourcing for certain items. 

The company's Q3'14 loss from operations decreased by nearly $100,000 to $217,000, compared to Q3'13, as a result of a 69% increase in gross profit and ongoing control of operating expenses, which held total operating costs to an increase of just 5.5% in Q3'14 compared to Q3'13.

Puradyn recorded a third quarter net loss of $282,000, or $0.01 per basic share, compared to a Q3'13 net loss of $235,000, or $0.00 per basic share. The Q3'13 period benefitted from $136,000 of other income from a one-time payment of a legal judgment by a third party. Puradyn's results of operations for the comparative third quarter and nine-month periods of 2014 and 2013 are provided in the accompanying unaudited Condensed Statements of Operations.

Kevin G. Kroger, President and COO, commented, "Continued strength in demand from customers operating large industrial engine assets was a principal contributor to our improved Q3 and year-to-date results. Importantly, our replacement filter element business continues to represent more than half of our Q3 and year-to-date net sales and should be an important source of recurring revenue going forward. The solid replacement filter sales performance reflects both our expanding base of filtration system deployments around the world, as well as the clear cost and engine preservation benefits our customers are achieving with our unique bypass filtration technologies."

Mr. Kroger added, "Given modest resources, we are focusing our sales and marketing efforts on specific industries and customer prospects with substantial industrial engine investments. Our focus is on customers that are open to new and progressive technologies to optimize their operations and equipment use, including innovative methods such as bypass filtration that reduces oil and maintenance costs and increase life-to-overhaul cycles. Our current areas of focus include oil and gas drilling, pipeline compressors, generators, construction and mining equipment, and maritime applications including ferries, tug boats and service vessels.

"Puradyn's business outlook is encouraging, as we work to build upon our proven technology, product performance record and customer validation. We also continue to devote resources to the continued enhancement of our solutions and future as demonstrated by our recent launch of our new Millennium Technology System (MTS) filtration system and our Polydry technology, that enable Puradyn to comply with the new stringent Tier 4 engine requirements."
