Nanophase Technologies (Nasdaq: NANX), a leader in nanomaterials and advanced nanoengineered products, announced that for the quarter ending September 30, 2008, the Company reported total revenue of $2.1 million, compared to $2.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007. Nanophase reported a net loss of $2.8 million, (including $1.6 million in severance charges, of which $600,000 was non-cash equity compensation), or $0.13 per share, for the quarter compared to a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, for the third quarter of 2007.
For the first nine months of 2008, Nanophase revenues were $8.1 million, compared with $9.6 million, for the same period in 2007. The net loss was $4.6 million, (including the $1.6 million in severance charges), or $0.22 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.12 per share, for the same period in 2007. Acting CEO Jess Jankowski noted, "Gross margin for the quarter is down from 21% to 14%, mainly due to reduced sales volume. For the nine-month period, gross margins were up 1%, but down only $320,000 due to a more favorable product and margin mix in 2008. Nanophase ended the quarter with approximately $15 million in cash and investments.
Markets and Outlook
"We expect fourth quarter revenue to be roughly flat when compared to the third quarter and expect full-year 2008 revenues to be roughly $10 million." Our outlook for 2009 is for lower revenue than in 2008 by roughly $2 million. We expect sales to start to rebound by late 2009 as new programs and customers ramp up."
Jankowski added: "We are seeing the impact of the current economic situation on several of our customers. Although we expect these conditions to have a negative impact on the fourth quarter and our 2009 revenue picture, we feel that Nanophase has a strong balance sheet and a good competitive position that will serve us well going forward. We are focused on building a pipeline of new business by leveraging our significant technology and applications development know-how, by continuing to develop deeper knowledge of the markets we're in, and expanding our reach into several new applications." Jankowski noted, "We are close to completion in building a new leadership team and putting the pieces in place to leverage our capabilities to our best advantage. Another recent positive change has been the addition of Bill Turner to our sales team. Bill is a senior account manager with 17 years of varied chemical industry experience. Our newly established leadership team is intently focused on using these advantages to create value. We remain optimistic about the long term prospects for the Company."
