Flame Seal Products, Inc. Releases December 31, 2019 Full Year Results
Houston, TX - (NewMediaWire) - March 13, 2020 - FLAME SEAL PRODUCTS, INC. (OTC PINK: FLMP), a leading provider of Specialty Chemicals for the Passive Fire Protection Market, today issues the following update to its Stockholders.
From: Craig Keyser, CEO
Subject: December 31, 2019 Full Year Results and Corporate Update
Year End Results for 2019
Flame Seal’s 2019 revenues were $2,385,715, a small increase over 2018 revenues, resulting in a loss of $106,632 compared to a $56,196 profit in 2018. Revenues remain relatively flat as we continue to test and certify new products. Transitioning to our new technologies is requiring additional development time and investment, which is expensed as incurred, leading to losses until anticipated revenues return Flame Seal (FSP) to profitability.
Craig Keyser comments, "2019 was a continuation of developing FSP’s new business to business model. FSP has essentially replaced its old product lines since 2013 with new, competitive technology. Investment in Research and Development (R & D) exceeds $1,000,000 since 2013, which has been made possible by the solid support of FSP’s Board of Directors (BOD). Please note all of FSP's R & D investment costs are expensed on its income statement. These costs reflect negatively on our operating results – P & L. The marketing team is in the process of commercializing new products for key segments of the construction industry. We have reasonable, but optimistic, expectations for reliable, recurring revenues in the coming years.”
All product developments and R & D costs are expensed as incurred per Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Accordingly, as of 2016 FSP is restating its financial results to reflect this change. The restatements will be available on otcmarkets.com under the Flame Seal symbol – FLMP – in the Disclosure section. Please note that the restated 2016, 2017 and 2018 income and expense statement (P & L) tables will be available as part of the 2019 financial statements.
