  • 58% Reduction in Net Loss and Slight Adjusted EBITDA Loss in The Fourth Quarter Reflect Operating Leverage In Business Model As Company Scales 

FREDERICK, Md., March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc.® (“TOMI”) (NASDAQ: TOMZ), a global company specializing in disinfection and decontamination utilizing its premier Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) platform through its SteraMist brand of products, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2022.

TOMI Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Halden Shane, stated, “2022 delivered continued growth in our revenue and sales pipeline as well as improved year over year financial operating results.   We ended the year on a strong note as we grew fourth quarter sales by 40% compared to the same prior year period and saw 60% growth sequentially from the prior quarter. In fact, in the quarter ended December 31, 2022 we delivered our best financial results since 2020. Furthermore, we continue to see positive signs in the marketplace as our fourth quarter solution sales grew by 31% compared to our prior year fourth quarter. We expect solution sales to continue to increase, particularly as we grow our base of CES systems, which should have a positive impact on margins.

“Our recognized revenue and sales backlog for the year ended December 31, 2022, together, was $10.4 million and we saw 22% year over year growth in customer orders. The increase in sales was largely attributable to increased demand for our CES systems due to the success of our internal tech team’s ability to deliver systems in the fourth quarter of 2022, as well as an increase in mobile equipment orders due to our expanded product line which now features our fourth generation environment system, SteraPak, Select Plus and CES system.

“The higher sales, gross profit and reduced operating expenses led to improved overall annual financial results as our loss from operations declined 41% year over year and we achieved 42% improvement in our loss per share in 2022.

“We entered 2023 with strong momentum and we will continue to focus on executing our strategies to grow revenues, expand business development and deliver improved results and values for our shareholders,” Dr. Shane concluded.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contain forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future performance based on management’s judgment, beliefs, current trends, and anticipated product performance. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, expected sales pipeline; financial performance and operating results for 2023; upcoming launch of new products; expected growth in sales and market demand; revenue opportunities of CES products and brand recognition of our products. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on our business and customers; our ability to maintain and manage growth and generate sales, our reliance on a single or a few products for a majority of revenues; the general business and economic conditions; and other risks as described in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 filed by us with the SEC and other periodic reports we filed with the SEC. The information provided in this document is based upon the facts and circumstances known at this time. Other unknown or unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. All information provided in this press release is as of today’s date, unless otherwise stated, and we undertake no duty to update such information, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures for our historical performance, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin. We define EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude: interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) is a non-GAAP financial measure and is intended to serve as a supplement to our results provided in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude: interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenue. We believe that these historical non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items and expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results or do not reflect our normal business operations. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate our performance internally and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. Our use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations in that such non-GAAP financial measures may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. Although we believe that the use of non-GAAP financial measures enhances its investors’ understanding of its business and performance, our use of non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP basis financial measures and should be read in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures. Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. Because of these limitations, the non-GAAP financial measure used in this release should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We seek to compensate for the limitation of our non-GAAP presentation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP as set forth below. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.
