BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI™ Environmental Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:TOMZ) (TOMI), a global bacteria decontamination and infection prevention company, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2015.

Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our efforts in 2015 led to several significant accomplishments and demonstrate the TOMI SteraMist platform is beginning to take hold around the world. Key regulatory agencies validated the effectiveness and competitive advantages of our technology and products. We also extended our penetration of the US and international markets by establishing strong manufacturing relationships and distribution channels. In addition, we fortified our operating and corporate infrastructure to support our rapid growth. Overall, our 2015 financial results improved significantly over 2014 and foreshadow our projected large-scale growth.

“In 2016, we have continued building our momentum. In fact, in February the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) amended our registration for our patented Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) platform to include its effectiveness in disinfecting C. diff spores, MRSA and H1N1. This amendment significantly expands our market opportunity in the US hospital and healthcare channels, particularly as registration with state regulatory agencies progresses. To support our continued growth overseas, we signed a distribution agreement to establish TOMI Asia, which will serve multiple markets in the region by providing distribution, warehousing, sales, training, services and support for our suite of products.

“We are excited about the opportunities before us. Committed to profitable growth, we are focused on the following initiatives:

  • Increasing penetration of the US Hospital-Healthcare Disinfectant market, including hospitals, surgical centers, medical, dental and veterinary offices;
  • Developing products that leverage our core competencies in decontamination and disinfection of indoor air and surfaces;
  • Maintaining a prudent cost structure while positioning the company for growth;
  • Enhancing the breadth and depth of the TOMI Service Network; and,
  • Furthering our regulatory claims to unlock even more opportunities for market growth.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2015 Compared to 2014

  • Net revenue was $1.8 million, a 69% increase from $1.0 million reflecting the company’s expansion into new markets and geographies.
  • Gross margins were 60.7%, compared to 58.4%.
  • Loss from operations was $157,000, compared to $102,000.
  • Net loss was $157,000, or breakeven on a per share basis. In the fourth quarter of 2014 net income included a $2.0 million fair value adjustment on a derivative liability and was $1.2 million, $0.01 per diluted share.
  • At December 31, 2015, cash and cash equivalents were $5.9 million and working capital was
    $7.9 million, an increase of $9.7 million over the $1.8 million working capital deficit reported at December 31, 2014.

Financial Results for the Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2015 Compared to 2014

  • Net revenue was $4.2 million, an 86% increase from $2.2 million.
  • Gross margins were 60.8%, compared to 61.1%.
  • Loss from operations was $3.0 million, including $1.7 million in equity compensation expense. This compares to a loss from operations of $3.8 million in 2014, which included $2.6 million in equity compensation expense
  • Net loss was $12.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $268,000, or breakeven on a per share basis. The increase in net loss was primarily attributed to one-time non-cash charges related to the liquidation of our outstanding convertible promissory notes.
