Seair Reports 3rd Quarter Results

/THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES./

EDMONTON, July 26, 2012 /CNW/ - Seair Inc. (SDS:TSX Venture Exchange) today released its unaudited financial statements for the quarter and nine months ending May 31, 2012.

Revenue for the quarter ending May 31, 2012 was $976,550, a decrease of 44% from the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Revenue from Seair's fleet of portable wastewater treatment units was up $256,000 from the prior year and constituted 95% of total revenue for the quarter. An early spring break-up and the associated road bans led to an earlier than expected end to the primary winter rental period for the portable treatment units. Nonetheless, summer activity for the rental fleet is expected to be higher than years past as a result of unit deployments in early July 2012. Moreover, Seair is anticipating very strong fleet deployment again in winter 2012/13.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2011 there was over $1 million of revenue from produced water treatment and oil sands dewatering equipment sales with no corresponding revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Seair continues to pursue sales in these product lines but at this early stage of commercialization the frequency and magnitude of sales is unpredictable.

Gross profit for the quarter ending May 31, 2012 was $628,479 compared to $1,383,758 in the quarter ending May 31, 2011. This $755,279 decrease in gross profit is due to lower equipment sales revenue.

Total operating expenses increased by $761,203 to $1,899,531. Non-cash items (stock-based compensation and amortization of sewage treatment units) contributed $306,725 of this change (40%). Salaries and benefits also increased as a large portion of the seasonal portable wastewater treatment plant service crews were retained to accelerate unit maintenance, repair and preparation for redeployment in anticipation of increased summer activity levels and full deployment again in winter 2012/13.

Net loss for the quarter ending May 31, 2012 was $1,269,271 compared to net income of $228,320 for the corresponding quarter in fiscal 2011.

About Seair

Seair develops proprietary equipment that diffuses gases, such as oxygen, ozone and carbon dioxide, into liquids. Seair's patented technologies can produce extremely small bubbles which are more efficient than other diffusion technologies. The result is a stable condition, where gases remain in solution for extended periods of time, leading to increased productivity and lower operating costs. This, in turn, facilitates gas-based treatment of complex and challenging wastewater and allows Seair to provide full water reuse and closed loop systems.

Seair applications include frac and produced water treatment, efficient aeration of industrial ponds, mine dewatering, end-to-end sewage treatment for permanent residential communities and remote work camps, golf course irrigation and pond treatment, and oil sands/SAGD water solutions.
