Unscheduled repairs to the company’s spray dryer impacted powder production in the third quarter, but without loss of orders or customers. Production of this higher margin product is expected to resume to normal levels very soon and increased sales could be expected in the 4th quarter.

Currency exchange, beyond management’s control, has negatively impacted net income this quarter.

Management’s ongoing objective to reduce overhead is beginning to be recognized in water and other utility costs due to conservation efforts implemented this year.

Year to date EBITDA, as of October 31, 2018 is $444,750.

“We are really pleased at the savings we are starting to see in utility costs,” said George Usher, President and CEO of Polydex. “Our water conservation efforts this year are resulting in savings and the added benefit of going green.”

Mr. Usher added, “We are also pleased to welcome David Jamestee, CPA, CA, as our new Chief Financial Officer. David has a strong background as a consultant and adviser to a number of small and medium sized businesses in the Toronto area. He replaces John Luce who has devotedly served in this capacity since 2006. His guidance and insight will be missed but we are confident David will be up to the task.” The Company’s publicly traded shares continue to be quoted on the OTC Pink platform ( www.otcmarkets.com/stock/POLXF/quote )
