Flux expects to report final fiscal 2019 fourth quarter and year-end results in September 2019.
- Q4 ’19 Net Revenue Expected to Rise over 170% to a New Record – Flux announced that it expects Q4 ’19 net revenue of approximately $3.0 million, an increase of over 170% compared to Q4 ’18 net revenue of $1.1 million and a new quarterly record. Flux Q4’19 net revenues benefitted from increased sales of lithium-ion battery packs across Flux’s entire product line, including GSE, Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 End Rider and Walkie LiFT Packs.

This growth in net revenue resulted primarily from Flux’s expanded product line, increased sales of new and existing products to current customers as well as sales to new accounts during FY 2019.
- Expected to Achieve Positive Gross Profit Margin for Q4 ’19 and FY 2019 – Flux expects to report positive gross profit margins for both Q4’19 and its full fiscal 2019 year, compared to negative gross profit margins in the respective FY 2018 periods.
