Published Sep 15th, 2021

SHOUGUANG, China, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq: GURE) ("Gulf Resources", "we", or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today provides net revenue and net income guidance for the 3rd Quarter and full year of 2021.

All estimates provided below are based on the current outlook and all exclude unexpected nonrecurring and non-operational factors.

In the 3rd Quarter 2021, the price of bromine has declined slightly from the record levels of the second quarter but is still near historic levels. Based on the production levels through the first two months and one week of the quarter, the company currently expects net revenues of between $16.2 and $16.7 million. This compares to net revenues of $11.1 million in the 2nd quarter of 2021 and $10.5 million in the same quarter of 2020.

The company believes it will make a net income in the 3rd quarter of between $4.0 and $4.7million. This compares to a net loss of $2.9 million in the same quarter of 2020 and net loss of $2.7 million in the 2nd quarter of 2021

While it is too soon to project the full year with certainty, at the present time, we are expecting net revenues of between $46.0 and $46.7 million. In 2020, we had net revenues of $28.2 million.

In the first 6 months of 2021, we had net revenues of $16.4 million. Based on our estimates for the 3rd quarter, we are also currently expecting a strong 4th quarter, despite the likelihood of seasonal shutdowns. In 2020, we had net revenues of $10.5 million in the third quarter and $11.8 million in the fourth quarter.

In addition, we are projecting a net income for the year 2021 of between $4.0 and $4.6 million. In 2020, we had a net loss of $8.4 million. In the first 6 months of 2021, we had a net loss of $5.2 million. This means we currently expect strong profits in both the 3rd and 4th quarter 2021.
