DEERFIELD BEACH, FL, August 13, 2013 – Capstone Companies, Inc. (OTCQB: CAPC) (“Capstone” or the “Company”), a leader in the design and manufacture of specialty power failure lighting solutions and innovator of consumer safety and security products for the Hospitality, Retail and Institutional channels, reported second quarter unaudited 2013 financial results.

Stewart Wallach, Capstone’s CEO, commented, “Our brand recognition efforts are continuing to gain steam during the second quarter.  We are getting more traction with the large retail chains in the U.S. and now have an increased presence in most of the highly recognized big box stores.”

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Revenue was $1,027,000 in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 21% from the prior-year period.
  • Gross profit increased to $197,000, up 5% from $187,000 in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Net loss was $499,000 compared with net loss of $361,000 in the second quarter 2012.

2013 Year to Date Review

  • Revenue was 1,687,000, an increase of $499,000, or 42%, from 1,188,000 in the 2012 first half.
  • Gross profit was up $96,000 to $391,000 over the first six months of 2012.
  • Net loss was $885,000 compared with a net loss of $709,000 in 2012’s first half.

Continuing to Invest in Strategic Growth Initiatives

The Company is progressing along the strategic path for growth through increased brand awareness and product development.  Continued investments to improve the Company’s capabilities and technologies are needed to maintain sales growth momentum through geographic expansion and new product introductions.  The timing and rate of these future investments will be determined by the market opportunities identified by the management team.

Mr. Wallach noted, “We are seeing results from the strategic investments we have been making in the business.  Our sales are significantly higher in the second quarter and first half, and we are making headway with our product development efforts.  For example, our new 2-in-1 10 LED Wall Plate, which we debuted at the National Hardware Show in May 2013, has been selected by several major retail chains to be available in their stores across the country.”
