The company’s financial conference call is scheduled for October 20, 2016 at 11am EDT

 

 

ROMEOVILLE, Ill. — Nanophase Technologies Corporation (OTCQB:NANX), a technology leader in nanomaterials and advanced nanoengineered products, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

“The timing of shipments impacts any particular quarter,” commented Nanophase CEO and President Jess Jankowski.  “But the overall direction is strong.  Just as the first quarter was lighter and we made up for it in the second quarter, our third quarter shipments were on the low side and we expect to see some of that volume added to the fourth quarter.”

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the first nine months of 2016 was $8.4 million, vs. the $8.0 million reported during the same period of 2015.
  • The net loss for the first nine months of 2016 was $0.6 million, or a loss of $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.03 per share, for the comparable period of 2015.
  • The Company finished the quarter with approximately $1.7 million in cash and cash equivalents; the Company had no debt.

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the third quarter was $2.5 million in 2016 and $2.8 million in 2015.
  • The net loss for the quarter was $0.4 million in 2016, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, for 2015.

Jankowski continued, “We fully expect year-over-year revenue growth during 2016, and that’s before significant revenue benefit from new solutions in Personal Care and Solar Control.  As those come on line, we expect to be a stronger company.  As it is, posting positive Adjusted EBITDA for the nine-months ended September 30, 2016 was another step in the right direction.”

Shareholders and members of the financial community are encouraged to participate in the upcoming conference call, where Mr. Jankowski will discuss the company’s current and long-term prospects.
