MagneGas Announces August Operational Update; Sales Increase 57% Compared to August 2016
August Industrial Gas Sales Highest in Company History
TAMPA, Florida, September 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, today provided an operational update and preliminary sales results for August 2017. The Company generated $407,234 in sales for the month of August. This represents a 57% increase compared to the same period in the prior year, when the Company generated $259,429 in industrial gas sales. The primary catalyst for growth was success in the new industrial sales division, which was brought online in July of 2017, coupled with strong year-over-year growth in the Company's Sarasota and Lakeland locations. The first new client in this segment has already become the largest single customer for the Company in less than 60 days.
"We are very pleased with our preliminary sales figures for August," commented Ermanno Santilli, Chief Executive Officer of MagneGas Corporation. "We were optimistic when we launched our industrial sales division. We saw strong potential as we brought on an experienced industrial sales team, which has since exceeded all our internal expectations. Our strategy has been to first present our MagneGas2 product to new clients, and then deepen these relationships with additional product sales. We have been able to successfully cross-sell high margin industrial gas and welding products into these new industrials clients."
"August sales results are indicative of the overall direction we are taking the Company," commented Scott Mahoney, Chief Financial Officer of MagneGas Corporation. "We are constantly evaluating ways to leverage our clients, our products and our people to accelerate revenue growth and cash flows with the least capital requirements. The new industrial sales team required less than $10,000 in initial working capital, which has generated more than $120,000 in revenues in less than 8 weeks. This business initiative has already paid for itself many times over, and we have only scratched the surface of the enormous nationwide revenue and earnings potential."
