           MagneGas Reports Financial Results For 1st Quarter 2013

PR Newswire

TAMPA, Fla., May 15, 2013

TAMPA, Fla., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or
the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), the developer of a technology that converts
liquid waste into a hydrogen-based metal working fuel, today announced its
financial results for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013. During the
period, the Company focused its domestic business development strategy on
expanding retail gas sales capabilities. Internationally, the Company pursued
the sale of equipment for liquid sterilization and fuel production.
Additionally, MagneGas actively recruited new management and board members
with specific industry experience in relevant market sectors.

Beginning in January of 2013, the Company changed its domestic fuel sales
strategy from that of wholesale distribution to direct retail sales. To that
end, it became a full service gas provider by selling hard goods and other
gases to complement MagneGas sales in the metal working market. The Company
began a focus on the fabrication market as opposed to steel recycling centers,
where a recent drop in steel pricing has negatively impacted fuel demand. In
order to expedite this strategy, the Company has hired several new retail gas
salespeople and a new Vice President of Industrial Gas Sales, Bryan George.
Mr. George brings over 20 years of direct industry experience working with
multinational companies such as AirGas, Inc. and Matheson Tri-Gas, Inc. The
Company believes his expertise in bringing new fuels to market will have a
direct impact on MagneGas market penetration. Internationally, the Company
continues to develop several potential equipment sales in the sewage
sterilization and waste to energy sectors and it has enhanced its relationship
with a large state university to become a demonstration and testing center for
equipment sales.

March 31, 2013 Financial Highlights:

  oTotal revenues of $130,840 for March 31, 2013 as compared to $131,983 for
    the same period prior year;
  oMetal cutting revenue remained flat at $107,507 for March 31, 2013 as
    compared to $108,650 for the same period prior year;
  oOperating expenses increased to $1,631,050 for March 31, 2013 versus
    $759,248 for the same period 2012, and;
  oThe Company had an ending cash balance of $453,068 on March 31, 2013
    versus $1,470,642 on December 31, 2012.

March 31, 2013 Business Highlights:

  oThe contract with Clear Sky Energy from Mexico was signed and a $100,000
    deposit received;
  oStrategic partnerships with General Motors, US Navy, two metropolitan fire
    departments and a large state university progressed;
  oMagneGas forged alliances with a major industrial gas supplier and a hard
    good supplier to become a full service provider of metal cutting fuels,
    such as oxygen, argon and other gases.

March 31, 2013 Financial Results

For the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013, revenues were $130,840, as
compared to $131,983 for the same period in 2012. Metal cutting revenue
remained flat at $107,507 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, as compared to
$108,650 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. This was primarily due to the
change in the Company's sales strategy from wholesale to retail and the ramp
up period required with a new sales force and new products. 

Operating expenses increased 241% from $759,248 for the quarter ended March
31, 2012 to $1,631,050 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This increase
was due to the deployment of three refineries in Michigan and Florida during
2012 and the operating costs associated with those facilities. In addition,
stock based compensation increased from $5,998 for the quarter ended March 31,
2012 to $399,800 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This increase was
primarily due to stock option plans instituted for the executives and
management team. The Company had an operating loss of $694,362 for the
quarter ended March 31, 2012, as compared to an operating loss of $1,564,713
for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. 

The Company continued to show progress in various strategic and sales
relationships announced in its Annual Report on Form 10-K. An update to these
relationships is as follows:

  oThe US Navy continues to be interested in MagneGas fuel for metal cutting
    applications such as in the decommissioning of ships and the Company has
    provided further testing data as requested. In addition, the Navy has
    held several meetings with the Company to test the use of the Plasma Arc
    Flow technology for applications such as treating used oils and other
    liquid wastes at forward bases. The Navy is in the process of obtaining
    funding in order to progress the liquid waste segment of the relationship
    with the Company.
  oThe Company is working with General Motors to test various liquid wastes
    for processing and conversion to MagneGas in order to fuel several
    possible internal projects. This testing continued during the first
    quarter of 2013 and several liquids were analyzed and tested.
  oThe Company is working with a large state university to develop a testing
    and demonstration center for the MagneGas technology with an initial focus
    on agricultural waste to fuel processing. The university is in the process
    of obtaining funding for this project.
  oThe Company is working with two major metropolitan fire departments to
    test MagneGas as a replacement to acetylene and other cutting systems used
    by firefighters. One fire department has ordered fuel samples for further
    testing and the other developed a training video for the use of MagneGas
    by firefighters.
