Management Discussion

Helena Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Industries, stated, "This is an exciting time for the Company, as we are making significant progress in our Bioprocessing business with the introduction of new state-of-the-art sensors for our innovative DOTS platform. In order to enable us continue our journey to building a successful Bioprocessing business, we completed an equity financing during the first quarter of 2024. Additionally, during the quarter, we also embarked on the implementation of a series of operational efficiency programs with a view to realize significant cost savings over the next twelve months, while focusing on revenue growth, particularly from our Bioprocessing Systems Operations. These critical actions give me confidence we are building the foundation for a successful year and beyond."

John Moore, Chairman said, "Recognition of the benefits of DOTS digitally simplified bioprocessing versus manual testing by our synthetic biology customers allowed us to report 42% higher revenue growth of our legacy CGQ products in the first quarter of this year. We have substantially fueled our sales pipeline with the announcement of the DOTS MPS and we can report a robust and growing influx of opportunities due to a combination of active digital content marketing, direct outreach and an active trade show calendar. We are attending over 40 conferences this year and will be presenting MPS data and insights on the podium. We shipped our first three MPS orders at the end of April to customers who bought the system "sight unseen" because they were so impressed by our published data. We have the most active calendar of customer demonstrations in SBI's history. We expect the Q3 and Q4 performance to show even more solid growth as we mature our pipeline of sales opportunities."

2024 First Quarter Financial Review

Net revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2024, decreased $321,900, or 11.5% to $2,483,500 from $2,805,400 for the three months ended March 31, 2023. While the Bioprocessing Systems Operations reflected an increase of $92,900, or 42% in revenues related to the Company's Aquila legacy products, the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations' revenues decreased by $414,800, as a result of decreased orders for Torbal products in part due to unavailability of product due to extensive ocean shipping delays.

The gross profit percentage for the three months ended March 31, 2024, and 2023, was 41.9% and 47.7%, respectively. The decrease was primarily due to higher material, labor and overhead costs of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations.

Operating expenses decreased $675,300, or 17.7%, to $3,130,300 in the three-month period ended March 31, 2024, compared to $3,805,600 in the same period in 2023, primarily as a result of decreased stock-based compensation and decreased R&D expense related to the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations and its completion of a new VIVID product development.

As a result, the Company posted a decreased loss from continuing operations of $2,051,600 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2024, compared to $2,371,900 for the three month period ended March 31, 2023, and net loss of $2,051,600, or $(0.20) diluted earnings per share, and $2,370,500, or $(0.34) diluted earnings per share for the three months periods ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

As of March 31, 2024, the Company's cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $4.8 million.
