Conference call scheduled for Friday Nov. 15th, 11:00am Eastern time, 8:00am Pacific Time

See dial in number below

Victoria, British Columbia CANADA, November 14, 2013 /FSC/ – Flexible Solutions International Inc. (FSI – AMEX, FXT – FWB),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 financial results for the Third Quarter (Q3) ended Sept. 30, 2013.

Mr. Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO, states, “Considering the performance of the global economy we are pleased with our financial progress. The reduced revenue in Q3 was a temporary reduction in orders from a large customer. We expect this to be a one-time event. Even with only two months left it is too difficult to estimate full year revenue with accuracy, therefore, the Company will only repeat our prediction that full year 2013 revenue is expected to be greater than 2012.”

* Sales in the third quarter (Q3), were $2,980,999, down 17% when compared to sales of $3,598,032, in the corresponding period a year ago. The result was a GAAP accounting net loss of $681,900, or $0.05 per basic weighted average shares for Q3, 2013, compared with a net loss of $458,085, or $0.03 per basic weighted average share, in Q3, 2012.

* Basic weighted average shares used in computing per share amounts in Q3 were 13,169,991 for both 2013 and 2012.

* Non-GAAP operating cash flow: For the 9 months ending Sept. 30, 2013, net income reflects $1,068,011 of non-cash charges (depreciation and stock option expenses), as well as interest income ($2,000), gain on sale of equipment ($2,057) and net income tax expense of $72,480. These items are either non-cash items or items not related to operations or current operating activities. When these items are removed, the Company shows operating cash flow of $589,863, or $0.04 per weighted average share. This compares with operating cash flow of $1,162,450, or $0.09 per share, in the corresponding 9 months of 2012 (see the table that follows for details of these calculations).

The NanoChem division continues to contribute most to our sales and cash flow and, new opportunities are unfolding to further increase sales in this division. In the future, first half sales may be larger than second half. This is due to predicted growth in agricultural product sales, sales which tend to be stronger during the first half of each year.


* CEO, Dan O’Brien has scheduled a conference call for 11:00am EST, 8:00am PST, Friday November 15th to discuss the financials. Call 1-480-629-9771 (or 1-877-941-9205), just prior to the scheduled call time. The conference call title, “Third Quarter 2013 Financials,” may be requested. *
