LITTLE RIVER, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#hai–PCT LTD (OTC Pink: PCTL) has filed its annual 2019 10-K report for the year ending December 31, 2019 and is providing this shareholder update on highlights from that filing. The company welcomes shareholders to view the complete filing with the SEC. However, selected highlights include, but are not limited to:
- Revenues in 2019 increased by 166.195% over the year ending December 31, 2018.
- The revenue increases for 2019 were due to the increased volume of fluids sold, the sale of equipment, licensing revenue from EPA sub registration, and placing equipment under the Company’s 3-year Systems Service Agreements.
- Operating expenses in 2019 decreased by 18.55% from the year ending December 31, 2018.
- General and administrative expenses decreased by 23.38% in 2019, compared to the year ending December 31, 2018.
- PCT LTD’s audited financials show an increase in revenues across the board from product sales (+129.88%), licensing agreements (+184.61%), and equipment leases (+208.21%) in 2019 compared to the year ending December 31, 2018.
The total overall operating expenses for 2019 were due to an increase in operations from a result of increased revenue, hiring new employees, opening a larger production and office location, revenue costs, research and development, and increased stock-based compensation. In particular, research and development expenses for 2019 were due to testing of the application of the Hydrolyte® technology in the oil and gas industry; as a biocide in institutional facilities, such as, hospitals, jails and medical facilities; and in agriculture and food processing. However, overall operating expenses as well as research and development expenses experienced a decrease in 2019 compared to 2018.
“2019 was a roller coaster year for us,” says PCTL CEO Gary Grieco. “By that I mean, with limited resources, we certainly had our ups and downs. However, looking back on 2019 and all we were able to accomplish has been rewarding and encouraging.”
In 2020, PCT LTD has experienced rapid growth and expansion, owing in large part to an increase in fluid sales to aid in combating the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as well as increased placements of the company’s Annihilyzer® Infection Control System domestically and abroad. The company has been on a record-breaking pace in 2020 and expects to report increased growth and revenue consistently through the end of the year.
“2019 was good for us in terms of revenue growth and expansion compared to 2018,” says PCT Corp President Bill Prince. “However, 2020 has so far presented us with a tremendous growth opportunity unlike anything we saw in 2019. We are excited and proud to have added more distributors and sub-registrants at an accelerated pace. We’ve been able to shore up existing markets while entering and expanding our footprint in other regions, including internationally. Lastly, we’ve increased our fluid output exponentially and placed more machines in more facilities than ever before.”
With the filing of the 10-K Annual Report, the company is now focused on completing their first quarter 10-Q report and continuing work on their second quarter 10-Q report.
“We appreciate the patience and understanding of our shareholders,” says PCT CEO Gary Grieco. “Our intention is always to complete our filings in a timely manner, and we are aware of the effect which late filings may have on shareholder value. We’re pleased to be able to file our 10-K Annual Report now and want to inform shareholders that now that the 10-K has been filed, the outstanding first quarter 10-Q will be filed as soon as is humanly possible.”
“We have our second quarter 10-Q on the radar as well and it is likewise in progress,” continues Grieco. “We want to assure shareholders that as our company continues to experience tremendous growth this year that we are taking steps both internally and externally to minimize or prevent extended delays from occurring in the future.”
