Commenting on the fiscal year results (changes shown vs. fiscal 2019), Cyanotech’s Chief Executive Officer, Gerald R. Cysewski, Ph.D., stated:

“We took several actions this past year to fortify our business and increase liquidity, including stabilizing production, postponing non-critical capital investments, and establishing cost controls to reduce spending in selling and general and administrative expenses going forward.

“I am happy with the results. We demonstrated achievement on multiple levels from the previous year: sales, margin, farm productivity, especially from our astaxanthin ponds, and the execution of cost cutting programs. Quarter over quarter net sales for fiscal 2020 have been consistent and have allowed us to improve cash management culminating in important accounts payable reduction, balancing inventory levels and building cash reserves.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused volatility in global markets. Our Company has been reported an essential business in Hawaii, and we have remained open at full operations. The Company is following all state and local mandates and is taking preventive measures to ensure the safety of our workforce. The extent of the impact of the pandemic on our financial performance, including the ability to execute our planned initiatives will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the pandemic and related government restrictions, all of which are uncertain.”
