Taronis Reports $2.2 Million in April Sales
109% Increase in Monthly Sales vs. 2018
TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 16, 2019 / Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: TRNX), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental conservation industry, today announced its preliminary sales results for the month of April. Sales for the month were $2.2 million, which represented a $1.1 million increase, or 109%, as compared to the same month in 2018. The increase was primarily attributable to revenues derived from several acquisitions made in the second half of 2018 and early 2019. Additional details by region are as follows.
Southeast: The Florida business unit experienced its best month in 2019, with $0.35 million in sales, as the local marketing team expanded its market efforts in anticipation of Taronis’s industrial gas fill plant being fully operational in June. This is expected to make the overall product offering much more competitive and profitable, which will justify an expanded sales effort in the region for the rest of 2019.
South: The Company’s Texas operations produced their highest sales figures under Taronis management. Total sales in this region were just under $1.0 million, which represents almost a nine-fold increase in sales. The Company has prioritized a series of acquisitions in this region, and is now one of the largest independent industrial gas competitors in the region. The overall demand for the Company’s products has been strong and reflective of the successful integration of recently acquired assets.
West Coast: Taronis’s California locations generated the largest level of monthly sales in corporate history, with just over $0.85 million in revenues. San Diego and Sacramento performed very well in particular. San Diego recorded its highest sales month under Taronis management, and the Woodland operation produced one of its highest sales months as well. The Los Angeles market has only just completed its integration process activating the launch of a revised marketing and sales effort.
“We are making positive progress across all of our operations,” commented Scott Mahoney, Chief Executive Officer of Taronis. “Our team is executing on all fronts, and our clients are responding as expected. We are optimistic that our team can build on our first four months of success and continue to expand our market share across some of the best markets in the US for industrial gas products today.”
