Nocopi Technologies Reports Third Quarter Results

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nocopi Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink: NNUP), a developer of specialty reactive inks today announced results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022. Nocopi’s SEC filings are available here.

2022 Q3 Results

2022 Q3 revenue was $685,900, an increase of 119% over 2021 Q3 revenue of $312,500 reflecting higher ink shipments and the renewal of an existing international license agreement for a five-year extension. Excluding the associated royalty revenue from the renewal license agreement, revenue in the quarter compared to 2021 Q3 increased 42% to $444,900, largely reflecting higher specialty ink shipments for licensees in the entertainment and toy product market.

Year to date, product sales through 2022 Q3 continue to be impacted by ongoing congestion experienced in certain Chinese ports from the COVID-19 outbreak and other supply chain disruptions resulting from the lockdowns in certain Asian cities that affect business and production.

Gross profit increased 136% to $493,500 from Q3’21 of $209,200. Gross profit margin was 72% of revenues, an increase from 2021 Q3 gross profit of 67%. The higher gross profit in 2022 Q3 compared to 2021 Q3 was the result of higher revenues from licenses, royalties and fees.

2022 Q3 operating expenses increased 31% to $293,000 from $222,900 in 2021 Q3. The increased operating expenses for the quarter reflect non-recurring legal and filing fees associated with the private placement and reverse stock split.

Net income for the quarter was $206,500, an improvement over 2021 Q3 net income of $1,100.


  • Quarterly revenue of $685,900 including the license fee renewal of an existing international licensee agreement for a five-year extension, and quarterly net income of $206,500.

Nocopi Chairman and CEO Michael Feinstein commented, “Our third quarter sales showed continuing signs of recovery compared to last year. We are working to overcome the remaining headwinds from the global supply chain disruptions and lockdowns. Although this was our second quarter in a row of a continued recovery in our base of business, we are confident that these headwinds will eventually fully subside and believe our business will return to historical demand patterns.

Importantly, over the past quarter, we have been focusing on improving our internal operations. We have expanded our executive team with the appointment of Matthew Winger as Executive Vice President of Corporate Development, as well our board of directors with the appointment of Michael S. Liebowitz. We have started strengthening our relationships with existing customers and have begun new efforts to increase our outreach to new customers and markets.

Our long-term strategic plan remains focused on generating free cash flow through our disciplined cost management and capital allocation plans. Having recently closed on the private placement funding, we are actively focused on pursuing accretive opportunities.
