POMPANO BEACH, FL, Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Brownie’s Marine Group, Inc. (OTCQB: BWMG), a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of tankless dive equipment and high pressure air and industrial compressors in the marine industry, today announced results for the fiscal third quarter and nine months ending September 30, 2020.

“Brownie’s had a strong third quarter despite the challenges facing the country and the economy thus far in 2020. We believe that COVID19 has brought families back together and looking for outdoor, fun activities that they can share as a family unit. In our primary market of warm water destinations, we believe that the Brownie’s Third Lung and Nemo systems are the perfect family fun activity.” said Christopher Constable, Chief Executive Officer. “The third quarter showed a great recovery from Q2, and we can feel the momentum building for our products. The Nemo product line is finding acceptance across the globe and has developed a great platform to help complete the vertical integration of the diving experience. The company is in a great cash position heading into the fourth quarter, and is focusing on flattening our seasonality curve by focusing on sub-equatorial geographical diving areas that will expand demand during the traditionally winter months in the US.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items and therefore have not been calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). We report adjusted net income (loss) to measure our overall results because we believe it better reflects our net results by excluding the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation. We believe the presentation of adjusted net income (loss) enhances our investors’ overall understanding of the financial performance of our business.

We believe that investors should have access to the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.
