Home > Press > Sono-Tek Announces Year End Earnings

Abstract:
Sono-Tek Corporation(OTC Bulletin Board: SOTK) today announced sales of $6,886,000 for the Fiscal Year ended February 28, 2007, compared to sales of $6,871,000 for the previous Fiscal year, an increase of $15,000. While sales appear to be flat, in fact there were significant increases in the sales to medical device companies and to international customers, resulting from our technical and market development programs of the past two years. Offsetting these gains was a general decline in North American sales to the electronics industry, historically, our largest market. The Company anticipated this decline in view of an accelerating move to offshore electronics production, combined with a slowdown in the housing market, and a reduction in the competitiveness of domestic automotive manufacturers. The housing market and domestic automotive companies are large users of printed circuit boards in a variety of electronic devices.

Sono-Tek Announces Year End Earnings

MILTON, NY | Posted on May 23rd, 2007

Net income for the year was $544,000, compared to $1,043,000 for the
previous Fiscal Year, a decrease of 48%. The decrease in net income is
mainly a result of increased spending on marketing, sales, and product
development, and the impact of new SEC regulations that treat stock option
awards as current expenses. According to Dr. Christopher L. Coccio,
Sono-Tek's CEO and President, "We believe that the reduction in current
income generation resulting from increased spending on product and market
development is well justified, in that it is expected to create future
growth opportunities for the Company. We have been successful in creating
new business in the medical device market, and in growing a significantly
larger international business in electronics, medical device coatings, and
coatings for fuel cells and solar panels."

The balance sheet is improved from last year at this time, with working
capital of $4,232,000 versus $3,699,000 at the end of the previous Fiscal
Year, and stockholders' equity increased from $4,230,000 to $4,851,000 at
February 28, 2007. The Company has total debt of $79,000, resulting in an
excellent debt to equity ratio. The strong balance sheet and cash position
has allowed the Company to make expenditures in both new technology and
geographical markets this year, and will allow it to continue its plans to
achieve significant future growth by investments in technology and market
development. Some of the key areas being worked on include the new MediCoat
PSI and MediCoat 2 products for applying drug eluting coatings to medical
devices, the new SonoDry series of spray dryers for nanotechnology and
related research applications, the initiative to develop food industry
applications for our WideTrack product line, and development work in the
energy field to apply our technology to fuel oil combustors, solar panels,
and fuel cells.

Dr. Coccio stated, "We expect to see continued softness in the North
American electronics industry, which could result in overall sales
decreases. We will continue to pursue the newer markets noted above. We
believe it would be counterproductive to curtail our current product and
market development efforts for short term quarterly results."
