Management Discussion

Helena Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Industries, stated, “2023 was a year of investments as we build the foundation for future growth of the Company. We believe that we are in a very good position to achieve the financial goals we have set for 2024 with the introduction and sales of new products for the innovative DOTS platform in our Bioprocessing Systems Operations. We plan to begin shipping our new products next quarter and we are hopeful for a rebound in the biotech and laboratory equipment industries which had suffered from overstocking in 2023. Additionally, we have implemented cost cutting measures across both operating segments to enhance efficiencies and margins.”

John Moore, Chairman of Scientific Industries, said, “The coming decades are predicted to be the Age of Living Machines. In this new era synthetic biology will improve the cost and efficacy of, among other products, lifesaving drugs. In order for these innovations from synthetic biology to make their impact, we need to make a step change reduction in the cost of failure and the speed of success. A leading consulting firm for Fortune 500 clients, estimates the average synthetic biology product scale-up costs $3 million and has a 90% likelihood of failure.”

“The DOTS Multiparameter platform promises to reduce the cost of scale-up by more than 30% or $1 million and to cut the time and likelihood of failure by more than 50%. For example, we presented DOTS MPS data at three synthetic biology conferences on our own development of a yeast-based expression system for production of our upcoming glucose sensor. Our scientists demonstrated protein titer increased by 20x, development time of the process was reduced from one year to two weeks at a process development cost reduction of well over 90% versus status quo industry methods.”

Mr. Moore concluded, “We have a unique and important contribution to make to the commercial viability of the synthetic biology industry. In the coming quarters, when our new MPS devices high throughput digital data is paired by our customers with their AI models, we expect them to prove essential force multipliers for powering profits and innovations.”

Twelve Months Ended 12/31/2023 Financial Review

Net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, increased $236,900, or 2.2%, to $11,111,500 from $10,879,700 for year ended December 31, 2022 (unaudited), due principally to increased revenues of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment operations fueled by higher Torbal product sales primarily as a result of an increase of VIVID pill counter sales, partially offset by decreased Genie brand sales which had benefitted from COVID-related sales.

The Company recorded a loss from continuing operations of $9,089,800 for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to a loss from continuing operations of $15,629,300 for the year ended December 31, 2022 (unaudited), with the prior year reflecting significant expenses related to impairment of goodwill and full valuation of deferred tax assets.
