Management Discussion

Helena Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Industries, stated, "The financial results for the first quarter came in as expected with our core benchtop products sales normalizing with COVID-19 subsiding, but still providing positive cash flow, and the seasonality of the European summer months impacting our first quarter. Our investments in research and development are beginning to gain traction, as reflected in the product sales growth of bioprocessing products, and substantial sales growth of VIVID products in the first quarter. Operationally, we have made significant progress with our synergistic integration efforts, resulting in decreased operating losses from Bioprocessing Systems Operations while nearly doubling the number of employees dedicated to those operations. We also launched our DOTS platform and software in accordance with our internal timeline. We remain focused on delivering on our growth initiatives as we build cloud-based subscription models across our business segments that will generate recurring revenue for years to come."

John Moore, Chairman of Scientific Industries and Scientific Bioprocessing, Inc. ("SBI"), said, "Our Bioprocessing team made solid progress in the first quarter as we continue to build momentum with our new DOTS platform to deliver Digitally Simplified Bioprocessing. More than one-third of our eligible customers have scheduled an upgrade to the new software. We have transformed the Bioprocessing Systems Operations from a royalty revenue model and have positioned it to become a leading-edge product and subscription-based service offering model that is expected to deliver real-time solutions and generate recurring revenue."

"I am proud that our DOTS platform and products through our strategic collaborations in the BioMADE program are playing a key role in the Biden Administration's National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative to advance U.S. biomanufacturing. As we look to the remainder of fiscal 2023, we are committed to advancing our vision of creating digitally simplified bioprocessing with our DOTS platform with real-time smart sensors and systems for cell cultures driving meaningful operational efficiencies for bioprocessing laboratory workflows."

2022 First Quarter Financial Review

Net revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022 decreased $184,500, or 6.5%, to $2,670,000 from $2,854,500 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, reflecting a decrease of $172,300 in net sales of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations, principally attributable to a reduction in Genie brand product sales due to a leveling off of Covid-related demand for vortex mixers, partially offset by increased orders for its VIVID automated pill counter and other Torbal products. The results also reflect a decrease of $12,200 in net revenues of the Company's Bioprocessing Systems Operations, due to the absence of royalty revenues in the current year period following the termination of a Company patent in August 2021, partially offset by an increase in bioprocessing product sales.

The Company recorded a loss from continuing operations before income tax benefit of $1,694,200 for the three months ended September 30, 2022 compared to a loss of $1,524,400 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, primarily due to decreased Benchtop Laboratory Equipment product sales, increased product development costs for the VIVID automated pill counter line, and increased corporate expenses related to financial and accounting services, partially offset by decreased losses incurred by its Bioprocessing Systems Operations.

As a result of the above, the Company reflected a net loss of $1,292,000 (or $0.18 per share) for the three months ended September 30, 2022 compared to a net loss of $1,208,800 (or $0.19 per share) for the three months ended September 30, 2021 based on a weighted average number of shares outstanding of 7,003,599 and 6,458,143 for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
