Karl Nowosielski, President of the Torbal Division said "We are highly encouraged by the market adoption of our VIVID automated pill counter and our VIVID Plus subscription platform whereby over half a million monthly transactions are performed by pharmacists. We believe that we are well positioned with our current pill counters and our planned additions to address the current labor shortages facing the pharmacy industry."

Helena Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Industries, stated, "We are pleased with the evolution of our Bioprocessing Systems Operations as our team continues to deliver patented technology breakthroughs, laying the groundwork for future growth. We are focused on creating innovative high-quality, low-cost products that are ideal to address the needs of our customers for real-time solutions to improve their workflows.

2023 Third Quarter and Nine Months Financial Review

Net revenues for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, amounted to $2,585,500 and $8,373,400 from $2,670,000 and $8,311,900 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022, respectively. During the third quarter, sales of bioprocessing products increased while the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations reflected a decrease in revenues due to the decline in COVID-related sales of its Vortex-Genie product, which was partially offset by increased sales of the segment's Torbal products, which also contributed to the increase for the comparable nine-month period.

The Company reported a loss from continuing operations before income tax expense or benefit of $2,201,100 and $6,758,100 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, compared to a loss from continuing operations before income tax expense or benefit of $1,709,200 and $10,137,300 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022, which included goodwill impairment expense of $4,280,100 in the prior period.
