TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

FREDERICK, Md., Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc.® (“TOMI”) (NASDAQ:TOMZ), a global company specializing in disinfection and decontamination utilizing its premier Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) platform through its SteraMist brand of products, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and first six months of 2021.

TOMI Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Halden Shane stated, “As we move through 2021, we continue to face sharp comparisons in the context of last year’s results which were driven by extraordinary demand for our products as customers, both existing and new, sought disinfection and decontamination solutions during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. As COVID-19 concerns have eased, our sales volumes have slowed, particularly in our Hospital-HealthCare, TOMI Service Network, and Commercial divisions, and that slowdown resulted in second quarter revenue performance that was in line with pre-virus levels. However, as the economy continues to open back up, we have seen positive indicators among our current and prospective customers which we expect will drive increased demand in the second half of 2021.”

“Specifically, we are seeing renewed interest and activity around our environment and permanent customer engineered systems (CES) in the Life Science market. On the product development front, earlier this month we announced the launch of SteraPak, a backpack system that represents the most mobile SteraMist unit available, designed to create easy maneuverability in the smallest spaces. Providing superior disinfection technology at a lower price point than our competitors, we believe SteraPak will open up new sales channels for our products and ultimately get our technology in the hands of more businesses and consumers. Additionally we have made solid progress with our SteraMist Select Plus and SteraMist Transport CES units and believe we are nearing a release date for these products.

“As we move through the balance of 2021, we view this as a rebuilding period. The unprecedented Covid-related demand we experienced in 2020 raised our profile in the marketplace and allowed us to significantly broaden our customer base. We remain focused on meeting the needs of our existing customers and further expanding our customer relationships by continuing to provide our state-of-the-art disinfection technology and solutions, while attracting new audiences with our innovative new products. Our second quarter results did not meet our expectations, but, with our visibility today, we are optimistic that TOMI will deliver a strong second half of the year. While we cannot predict with certainty the course of the pandemic and how it will affect our industry, we believe that a permanent shift in the disinfection practice of commercial and business operations will continue to generate healthy demand for our products.

“Accordingly, despite the decline of revenue during the second quarter, we expect to see significant revenue growth in the second half of the year over the first half.  Based on momentum we are seeing thus far this quarter across our product platform as well as the Q3 launch of our new SteraPak, we are targeting strong sequential growth in Q3 over Q2 and double-digit revenue in Q4. As stated before our mission is and will always be to make the world a safer place.”

Recent Progress with Scientific Studies and Industry Testing:

  • Finished gathering successful and critical data from our Shield Study, a multi-year study comparing SteraMist with manual cleaning. The Study was conducted by multiple well-established hospitals and initial findings have been positive regarding ease of use, overall efficacy, and quick turnaround time of patient rooms. TOMI looks forward to announcing the full results as they are available to make public.

  • TOMI continues to work with its German aircraft partner and Boeing in a third-party test required for the aviation industry. TOMI incurs no cost for this work as both testing partners are clients.

  • Engaged HYGCEN Germany GmbH to perform a quantitative test of germ carriers for airborne room disinfection and testing of the effectiveness of a method for disinfecting room air to meet the new EU norm (standard) EN 17272. Certification that Binary Ionization Technology meets the new standard will continue to position iHP as the premier decontamination/disinfection technology available on the market today.

  • The Company continues to work with the Virginia State University Agricultural Research Station and its partner, Arkema on a food safety pilot study based on novel, nonthermal, and environmentally friendly technology to control foodborne pathogens on industrial hemp seed as representative model foods. TOMI anticipates the pilot will be completed by the third quarter of 2021.

  • Partnered with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of Texas Tech University to conduct a wide range of studies on spray pattern, deposition, and hydrogen peroxide content in order to compare our 1% label to other similar products on the market.

  • TOMI is working with University of Virginia on two separate studies. The first, which explores SteraMist’s efficacy against SARS-CoV-2, reported successful results and is currently awaiting the final published paper. The second, using the handheld SteraMist Surface Unit and testing spray and contact time variables against Adenovirus is currently awaiting results. TOMI anticipates the testing will be completed by the third quarter of 2021.

  • TOMI's long term relationship with USDA Agricultural Research Service continues to progress. Earlier this year, "Hydrogen peroxide residue on tomato, apple, cantaloupe, and Romaine lettuce after treatments with cold plasma-activated hydrogen peroxide” was accepted for publication in the Journal of Food Microbiology. TOMI has also begun discussions with another ARS facility to evaluate the benefits of iHP on blueberries to prevent rot and reduce post-harvest losses.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contain forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future performance based on management’s judgment, beliefs, current trends, and anticipated product performance. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements relating to anticipated financial performance and operating results; upcoming launch of new products; expected growth in sales and market demand; timing and process relating to research studies and testing; impact of COVID-19 pandemic on our business operation; and our ability to execute sale strategies. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on our business and customers; our ability to maintain and manage growth and generate sales, our reliance on a single or a few products for a majority of revenues; the general business and economic conditions; and other risks as described in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 filed by us with the SEC and other periodic reports we filed with the SEC. The information provided in this document is based upon the facts and circumstances known at this time. Other unknown or unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. All information provided in this press release is as of today’s date, unless otherwise stated, and we undertake no duty to update such information, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures for our historical performance, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin. We define EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude: interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) is a non-GAAP financial measure and is intended to serve as a supplement to our results provided in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude: interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenue. We believe that these historical non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items and expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results or do not reflect our normal business operations. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate our performance internally and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. Our use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations in that such non-GAAP financial measures may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. Although we believe that the use of non-GAAP financial measures enhances its investors’ understanding of its business and performance, our use of non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP basis financial measures and should be read in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures. Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. Because of these limitations, the non-GAAP financial measure used in this release should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We seek to compensate for the limitation of our non-GAAP presentation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP as set forth below. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.
