2022 First Quarter Financial Review
Net revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2021 increased $835,300, or 41.4% to $2,854,500 from $2,019,200 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, reflecting an increase of $599,600 in net sales of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations' Genie brand products, and an increase of $235,700 in net revenues of the Company's Bioprocessing Systems Operations, primarily due to net sales from its German subsidiary, aquila biolabs GmbH, which was acquired in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. The Company realized a loss from continuing operations before income tax benefit of $1,532,300 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a loss of $189,200 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily due to increased operating expenses incurred by its Bioprocessing Systems Operations, which included significant amounts for product development, sales and marketing, and non-cash compensation expenses related to stock options, partially offset by the record profits generated by increased sales of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations.
As a result of the above, the Company reflected a net loss of $1,208,800 (or $(0.19) per share) for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a net loss of $263,300 (or $(0.09) per share) for the three months ended September 30, 2020 based on a weighted average number of shares outstanding of 6,458,143 shares and 2,861,263 shares for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
