Sono-Tek Corp. Key Developments

Sono-Tek Corp. Reports Preliminary Sales Results Year Ended February 28, 2015; Proves Earnings Guidance for the Year Ended February 28, 2015 and Provides Revenues Guidance for the First Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016

Sono-Tek Corp. reported preliminary sales results year ended February 28, 2015. For the year, the company reported sales of $10,850,000 compared to sales of $10,280,000 for the previous fiscal year, an increase of $570,000 or 6%. During fiscal year 2015, the Company had a continuing upward trend in sales, in both quarter to quarter and quarter versus the previous year's quarter. The current year's success has been due to increases in specialty glass coatings, stent coating applications, fuel cell coatings, and food antimicrobial applications coupled with steady sales of SonoFlux equipment to the electronics printed circuit board industry, balloon catheter applications, and spray drying applications. Based on current backlog, shipments, and proposals, the company is expecting another increase for the first quarter of the fiscal year (March-May 2015) compared to last year. The company is targeting a 10% growth in revenues for fiscal year 2016. The company is expected to report income before taxes of $700,000 for the year ended February 28, 2015 as compared to $615,000 for the year ended February 28, 2014, an increase of $85,000 or 14%.
