Laser Photonics Announces First Quarter 2024 Results

Revenue increased 10%; reduced operating loss by 39%; reduced net loss and diluted loss per share by 57% each


ORLANDO, FL / May 14, 2024 / Laser Photonics Corporation (NASDAQ: LASE), (“LPC”), a leading global developer of CleanTech laser systems for laser cleaning and other material applications, today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Wayne Tupuola, CEO of Laser Photonics, commented: “Our first quarter generally showed positive momentum with 10% revenue growth and significant operating and net loss reductions. Despite CleanTech making up over 80% of sales, our gross margin was down from last year as we sold several lower power systems in the quarter. Now that we’ve ramped our sales and marketing resources, our next priority is to refine our production processes and improve the cost efficiency of our manufacturing operations, which should drive improvements to our cost of goods sold in time.”
