Edmonton, Alberta, April 25, 2012 – Titan Logix Corp., (TSX Venture: TLA), today reported its unaudited financial results for the second quarter of its fiscal 2012 ended February 29, 2012.
Summary of Sales Revenue, Gross Profit and Net Earnings:
Sales for the second quarter ended February 29, 2012 were $4,243,301, an increase of 72% from sales of $2,463,022 in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. Gross profit in the three month period was $2,182,268 (51%) compared to $1,086,980 (44%) and net earnings and comprehensive income was $994,368 compared to $36,154 in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year.
For the first six months of fiscal 2012 ended February 29, 2012, sales were $7,632,993, up by $2,998,337 or 65% from sales of $4,634,656 in the first half of fiscal 2011. Gross profit in this same period was $3,762,161, with a gross margin of 49%, compared to $2,002,047, with a gross margin of 43%, in the first six months of fiscal 2011. Net earnings and comprehensive earnings in fiscal 2012’s first six months was $1,616,605 ($0.06 per diluted share). This is a material increase from the earnings of $95,327 ($0.00 per diluted share) reported for the first six months of fiscal 2011.
Financial results for the first six months of fiscal 2012 reflect Titan Logix Corp’s successful execution of its strategic plan, its continued operational strength and the ever increasing customer demand for its oilfield fluid transport products.
Summary of Operating Expenses:
Total expenses for the first six months of fiscal 2012 were $2,143,688 compared to $1,903,289 in the same period a year ago. General and administration expenses were $1,012,042, compared to $782,208 recorded in the same period of the previous fiscal year. Engineering and development expense was $377,168 compared to $347,720 and marketing and sales expense increased from $651,375 in the previous fiscal year’s first six months to $730,993 for the first six months of fiscal 2012. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses are 28% for the six month period ended February 29, 2012 compared to 41% for the same period of fiscal 2011. The reduction of operating expenses as a percentage of sales is primarily due to the increase in revenues and also the controlling of many operating costs.
At February 29, 2012, working capital was $6,011,707 compared to the August 31, 2011 year-end balance of $4,430,414. Cash and cash equivalents were $2,964,474 compared to $1,457,324 at the end of fiscal 2011. Titan does not have any debt except for trade and accrued payables.
The mobile tanker original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to whom we sell TD80s (our GWR mobile tank level measurement and overfill prevention system) are backlogged in their new tanker fabrication for six to twelve months. Oil and gas drilling activity in Canada and the US continues to be strong. Titan’s TD80 and TPZ gauging systems are used in oilfield tankers (hauling crude oil, chemicals, produced water, etc.) and oilfield storage tanks respectively. Market statistics favor continued growth of the sales of Titan’s products in the oil and gas industry in North America. Titan’s outlook for this fiscal year is positive.
