- Total sales revenue of $3,540,387 compared to $3,634,560 the previous year
- Gross profit for 2019 was $1,934,940, an increase of 0.4% compared to the previous year
- Gross margin increased to 54.7% as compared to 53.0% the previous year

Robert Goldstein, CEO of US Nuclear Corp., commented:
“We are very excited about the progress of US Nuclear this past year and for the outlook on the future. Sales revenue was strong for 2019, and the slight decrease in revenue from the previous year was primarily the timing of shipment for larger orders. We are working with a new business development company to help increase our online presence, inbound leads, and sales revenue.
The net loss we reported was due to stock-based compensation for acquiring 40% of Grapheton, also increasing our stake and our sales and manufacturing rights in MIFTEC and MIFTI fusion generator companies. Our early investment and involvement with these promising companies will not only reap huge rewards for us in the future, but will help US Nuclear grow and expand as a sensor manufacturer. Grapheton (in the same space as Elon Musk’s Neuralink) is at the forefront of the brain-machine interface revolution for treating injuries and disease with several patented advantages already, and MIFTI has a test planned at L3 Harris for 2020 that could be the first in history to achieve the “break even point” — the gateway requirement for fusion power and medical isotope production.”
