Management Discussion

Daniel Gruenes, CEO of the Company's Bioprocessing Systems Operations' division, said, "We are highly encouraged by the progress our team has achieved in the development of our innovative DOTS platform in a short period of time. Importantly, the initial positive results of our R&D efforts are related to the next set of products to be released under our DOTS platform that will help drive market adoption and capture market share. Based on initial customer feedback, we believe that we will have an excellent positioning in the bioprocessing technologies market differentiated by the range of our innovative, yet affordable and easy to use product portfolio. We look forward to embarking on a full-fledged commercialization program and continuation of our product portfolio expansion to provide complete solutions for our customers to drive top-line growth."

Helena Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Industries, stated, "Overall, we are pleased with the solid results of the second quarter with top-line growth of 7%, despite the industry headwinds our team had to overcome during the first half of 2023. Driving growth in the quarter was the strong performance from our Torbal Division with sales up 48%, led by the doubling of sales in our VIVID pill counter, compared to the prior year second quarter. Additionally, we continue to demonstrate positive momentum with our Bioprocessing products and enhancing customer adoption. Our Bioprocessing team continues to make progress as we prepare for a controlled launch of our much-anticipated multi-parameter sensor product line. I believe we are well positioned to continue growing Scientific Industries in the years to come."
