MagneGas Generates Record Sales for March; 70% Year over Year Growth
TAMPA, FL–(Marketwired – April 17, 2018) – MagneGas Corporation (“MagneGas” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, announced today that the Company generated record sales of $0.5 million for the month of March. These are the highest combined industrial gas and welding supply sales in corporate history. These figures did not include any sales from the Trico Welding Supply acquisition, which closed on April 2, 2018. The record growth was largely due to recent acquisitions that expanded the Company into California, Texas and Louisiana, as well as continued growth in Florida. The Company has implemented an aggressive marketing initiative in these new markets, with a heavy emphasis on leveraging MagneGas2® to drive new client acquisition.
“We are pleased to see the immediate positive impact of our recent acquisitions,” commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas. “We acquired Green Arc and Complete Welding for access to rich industrial gas markets and gained access to a strong local sales team that has delivered excellent sales results for those businesses. We have also implemented a comprehensive product training program to educate our newly acquired customer base on the benefits of MagneGas2®, the world’s only renewable metal cutting fuel. We are rapidly gaining traction, and we expect our revenue growth to continue to accelerate.”
“Our recent acquisition strategy is paying off with tangible results,” commented Scott Mahoney, CFO of MagneGas. “We are seeing rapid sales growth, with 70% year-over-year growth for March, and 10% sequential monthly growth from February to March of this year. We are confident that our strategy is working and will transform the financial performance of the Company in 2018.”
