SAN ANTONIO, April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C-Bond Systems (the “Company” or “C-Bond”) (OTC: CBNT), a developer and marketer of glass strengthening solutions for enhanced safety, today announced financial results for the year ended December 31, 2023, reporting record annual revenue of $2.49 million and net income of $1.89 million. Following the sale of its C-Bond nanoShield business and related patent in May 2023 for approximately $4.1 million, the Company also repaid over $2 million of debt.

The Company will hold a conference call tomorrow, April 3, 2024, at 9:30 am ET to discuss its 2023 financial results and review its preliminary outlook for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. The Company stated last month it expects to report revenues of more than $1 million for the first quarter of 2024. Conference call details are below.

2023 Financial Highlights:

  • For the year ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, net income (loss) amounted to $1,886,807 and $(5,156,478), respectively. Part of the net income increase was due to the sale of the nanoShield patent and related product line for $4,051,709
  • For the year ended December 31, 2023, operating expenses amounted to $3,303,818 as compared to $4,470,738 for the year ended December 31, 2022, a decrease of $1,166,920, or 26.1%. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in compensation and related benefits for the year ended December 31, 2023 of 808,269, or 28.4%, as compared to the year ended December 31, 2022.
  • For the year ended December 31, 2023, sales amounted to $2,488,493 as compared to $2,232,646 for the year ended December 31, 2022, an increase of $255,847, or 11.5%.
  • For the year ended December 31, 2023, cost of sales amounted to $1,180,979 as compared to $954,402 for the year ended December 31, 2022, an increase of $226,577, or 23.7%.
  • For the year ended December 31, 2023, gross profit amounted to $1,307,514, or 52.5% of sales, as compared to $1,278,244, or 57.2% of sales, for the year ended December 31, 2022, an increase of $29,270, or 2.3%. Generally, we recognized a higher gross profit percentage on the sale of C-Bond nanoShield and C-Bond ballistic-resistant glass protections systems than we do on the sale of general window film installations and services.

“This was a record year for the Company in many regards,” stated Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of C-Bond. “In addition to record revenue for both the full year 2023 and the fourth quarter of 2023, our expenses decreased, and we were net income positive for the first time in our history due in part to the sale of our nanoShield assets in May 2023. It was a banner year for us.”

“We are also pleased that the momentum we created in 2023 is continuing into 2024 as we expect to report first quarter 2024 revenue of more than $1 million, which would be another record quarter for the Company. We have already announced that we have a strong backlog of projects for 2024 and are committed to growing our project pipeline for 2024, 2025, and beyond,” continued Silverman.

C-Bond’s windshield strengthener, C-Bond nanoShield™, is a first of its kind solution that protects and strengthens windshields by permeating the glass surface and repairing the microscopic flaws and defects on the glass that ultimately initiate chipping and cracking. The strengthening process begins immediately upon application and continues while the material cures in the following days. The product is easy to apply and is sprayed on and squeegeed off.
