“Our Q3 results were negatively impacted as a result of the downturn in the oil patch,” said President and CEO, Greg McGillis. “Lower crude oil prices have impacted the industry’s entire supply chain. We believe Titan is well positioned to weather this downturn, however we expect a material negative impact on our bottom line for some time.”

Summary of Sales Revenue and Net Earnings

Titan Logix Corp.’s sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 totalled $2,570,724, $1,754,636 or 41% lower than sales of $4,325,360 in the previous year’s third quarter. Titan’s sales outside of Canada, primarily to the U.S., were $1,619,860 in this third quarter of fiscal 2015, a decrease of 29% from sales of $2,266,021 in the same quarter of fiscal 2014. Sales outside of Canada were 63% of Titan’s total sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to 52% in the previous year’s third quarter. Our customers have indicated that crude oil trailer manufacturing in Canada and the United States has slowed down due to the decline in oil prices and as a result, Titan’s sales have decreased. For the first nine months of fiscal 2015 ended May 31, 2015, sales were $11,565,860, down by $992,710 or 8% from sales of $12,558,570 in the first nine months of fiscal 2014. The decrease in sales began at the end of the previous quarter. 

Net earnings and comprehensive earnings in fiscal 2015’s first nine months was $2,124,655 ($0.08 per diluted share) after tax, an increase of $196,516 or 10% compared to earnings of $1,928,139 ($0.07 per diluted share) after tax reported for the first nine months of fiscal 2014.This increase is a result of lower general and administration and marketing and sales expenses and gains in foreign exchange offset by a decrease in gross profit and increased engineering expenses.

Financial Position

As at May 31, 2015, Titan had positive working capital of $17,761,165 compared to $15,011,133 at August 31, 2014. At May 31, 2015 cash and cash equivalents were $14,722,738 compared to $11,845,187 at the end of fiscal 2014. Titan does not have any debt except for trade payables, accrued liabilities and finance lease obligations. Titan continues to maintain a strong balance sheet and a good cash position.

Business Outlook

The decline in the price of oil continues to negatively impact sales of TD80 systems in new tankers in the last quarter of fiscal 2015. We anticipate the low crude oil price will create a challenging environment and result in a material negative impact on our bottom line.

Titan’s mitigation plans include increasing retrofit sales efforts and sales into non-crude oil markets, reducing discretionary spending and making changes in our production structure including contract manufacturing. Our strong financial position will help us weather current uncertainties, build upon our established reputation, and pursue new opportunities. Titan continues to maintain tight fiscal controls and focus on product and market diversification.

During the third quarter, Titan expanded its product line to include the Visi-OIL, advanced technology automated stationary tank gauging system. We also released our new Visi-ACID mobile tank gauging system that uses the same time tested Guided Wave Radar technology of the TD80 coupled with the corrosion resistance of a Hastelloy probe.
