Nanophase Technologies : Reports Record Second Quarter Financial Results as SolÚsence Beauty Science Growth Continues (Form 8-K)

Nanophase Reports Record Second Quarter Financial Results as Solésence Beauty Science Growth Continues

Announces 69% YOY Growth and $14M in Six-Month Revenue

ROMEOVILLE, Ill., Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanophase Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: NANX), a leader in minerals-based and scientifically-driven health care solutions across various beauty and life science categories - with innovations that protect skin from environmental aggressors and aid in medical diagnostics - today reported record financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Jess Jankowski, President and CEO, commented: 'Through executing our growth strategy, we find ourselves in an excellent position across both beauty and life science areas, where we continue to create exciting product applications for our novel technology platforms.

'Solésence beauty science sees triple-digit growth as our products continue to be embraced by our brand partners, and we expect this growth to continue through 2021 and in to 2022. Demand for our medical diagnostics materials was strong for the first half and, while demand for the second half appears to be ebbing due to the current pandemic environment, the continued success of these materials - and our belief that our novel materials technology enables enhanced performance in helping diagnosticians to more accurately identify COVID-19 and other viruses - has helped us to identify life science as the third major component of our business strategy going forward. Our other major business segment, personal care ingredients, has experienced a 28% increase over the first quarter of 2021. We expect continued improvement over 2020 performance as the current recovery continues.

'After delivering $14.2M in revenue during the first half, we still had purchase orders in hand for another $20M+. More than half of that product is expected to ship in Q3 and Q4 of 2021.'

Second Quarter and YTD 2021 Financial Highlights
(All numbers are approximate)

  • Revenue for the second quarter was $7.1 million, vs. $4.3 million for the same period in 2020. Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $14.2 million, vs. $8.4 million for the same period in 2020.

For the six-month period of 2021:

  • Solésence beauty science six-month revenue was $8.8 million, up 210% from $2.8 million for the same period in 2020.

    • Solésence six-month 2021 revenue exceeded full year 2020 revenue by more than 30%.

  • Advanced Materials revenue was $2.2 million, up 6% from $2.1 million in the same period of 2020.

    • This was driven by growth in the life science space, specifically medical diagnostics materials, accounting for $1.8 million, or 82% of the total segment, offset by a decline in the Company's architectural coatings materials.

  • Personal Care Ingredients revenue was $3.2 million, down 8% from $3.4 million in 2020. The YOY decrease in first quarter 2021 revenue was offset by a YOY 18% increase in second quarter revenue.

· Income from operations, before interest expense and other income, was $1.5 million for the six-month period in 2021, versus $0.6 million for the same period in 2020.

· During the six months ended June 30, 2021, there were two atypical non-operating items of a material nature that largely offset each other:

  • Upon exercise of the conversion rights relating to our $2 million related party loan, the amortization of the loan discount was accelerated, resulting in the recognition of $0.9 million in non-cash interest expense being recognized.

  • Upon forgiveness of our $1.0 million PPP loan by the SBA, we recognized other income in the same amount during the first quarter of 2021.

    • It should be noted that the Company received forgiveness for its PPP loan effective February 2021. This was not communicated directly to management until June 2021. Given that the loan was legally forgiven in February, we chose to restate our first quarter financials to reflect the actual timing of the related gain.

    • This restatement is not a result of business operations or performance, and has no impact on operating income, or cash. Other income will change positively by the PPP loan amount in the first quarter. Six-month results will not change.

· Net income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021 was $1.4 million in 2021, compared to $0.4 million for the same period in 2020, reflecting a $0.02 per share improvement period over period.

· The Company finished the quarter with approximately $1.1 million in cash.

Kevin Cureton, Chief Operating Officer, commented: 'The dynamic growth of our beauty science segment results from our company's unique combination of great technology and a talented team able to translate our technology into award-winning, best-in-class skin care and color cosmetic products. As a result, our brand partners are now expanding at more than twice the growth rate of the market. While much of their growth has been through selling domestically, the appeal of the products we have developed for them has led to several of our larger brand partners expanding in the EU and ASEAN geographic segments. With the global expansion of these brands and the addition of more than a dozen new brand partners this year, we expect the second half of 2021 to maintain the growth momentum established in the first half and continue our record revenue and profit performance.'

Jankowski continued: 'Our goal is to enhance people's lives, whether it be through healthy skin, or through our contributions to medical diagnostics. With the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the new hurdles brought about by the Delta variant, we remain committed to our responsibility to keep doing our part to improve public health by providing essential products for the health and safety of those we serve.'
