Q1 FISCAL 2023 HIGHLIGHTS
Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 improved over the comparative prior period as the demand for the GWR product line continued to strengthen, resulting in a $878,986 or a 141% increase in the Company’s revenues for the first quarter compared to the comparative prior period. Revenues in the first quarter were $1,503,120, compared with the $624,134 recorded in the comparative prior period. This increase in demand for the GWR was due to an improvement in the global supply chain for tanker OEMs from the crude oil, recycled oil, and aviation refueling sectors.
Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased by $506,738 to $836,621 or 56% of revenue compared to $329,883 or 53% of revenue in the comparative period. This increase in gross profit is primarily due to the increase in unit demand and revenue. The increase in the gross profit percentage is primarily the result of increased utilization of the Company’s production capacity from increased product levels.
Total expenses in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 decreased by $40,158 to $593,826 as compared with $633,984 in the comparative prior period. This decrease in total expenses was primarily due to lower engineering costs and an increase in foreign currency exchange gains. These were partially offset by increased general and administrative expenses and sales and marketing costs.
In the first quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company reported an operating income before other items of $242,795 compared to an operating loss of $304,101 in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. The significant improvement in the operating loss before other items for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was largely due to higher gross profits from increased volumes for the GWR product line.
Net earnings after income taxes for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 amounted to $414,685 compared to a net loss after taxes of $162,958 in the comparative prior period. The increase in the net earnings was primarily due to the significant improvement in the operating loss before other items combined with the unrealized gain on the investment in Bri-Chem Corp. common share.
“Titan has been diligently focused on restoring our core business, which serves as a strong foundation to our strategic growth plan and the first quarter results show that we are on track. We continue to invest in our sales and marketing efforts, upgrading existing customer fleets to our latest TD100 platform, which will serve as the cornerstone for new product releases we have planned for the fiscal year,” said CEO, Nick Forbes.
