Incorporated in 1954, Scientific Industries, Inc., a Delaware corporation (which along with its subsidiaries, the "Company") is engaged in the design, manufacture, and marketing of standard benchtop laboratory equipment ("Benchtop Laboratory Equipment"), customized catalyst research instruments ("Catalyst Research Instruments"), under its wholly-owned subsidiary, Altamira Instruments, Inc., and since November 2011 through its then organized subsidiary, Scientific Bioprocessing, Inc., ("SBI"), the design of bioprocessing systems and products ("Bioprocessing Systems"). The Company's products are used primarily for research purposes by universities, pharmaceutical companies, national laboratories, medical device manufacturers, petrochemical companies and other industries performing laboratory-scale research. Operating Segments. The Company views its operations as three segments: the manufacture and marketing of standard Benchtop Laboratory Equipment for research in university and industrial laboratories sold primarily through laboratory equipment distributors, the manufacture and marketing of custom-made Catalyst Research Instruments for universities, government laboratories, and chemical and petrochemical companies, and the production, marketing and sublicensing of bioprocessing systems and products for research in university and industrial laboratories. For certain financial information regarding the Company's operating segments, see Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements included under Item 8. Products. Benchtop Laboratory Equipment. The Company's Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products consist of mixers and shakers, rotators/rockers, refrigerated and shaking incubators, and magnetic stirrers. Sales of the Vortex-Genie(R) 2 Mixer, excluding accessories, the Company's principal product, represented approximately 42% and 52% of the Company's total net sales for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012 ("fiscal 2012") and June 30, 2011 ("fiscal 2011"), respectively, and 63% and 68%, of the segment's sales for fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011, respectively. The vortex mixer is used to mix the contents of test tubes, beakers, and other various containers by placing such containers on a rotating cup or other attachments which cause the contents to be mixed at varying speeds. The Company's additional mixers and shakers include a high speed touch mixer; a mixer with an integral timer, a patented cell disruptor; microplate mixers, two vortex mixers incorporating digital control and display; a large capacity multi-vessel vortex mixer and shaker, and a large capacity orbital shaker. 4
The Company also offers various benchtop multi- purpose rotators and rockers, designed to rotate and rock a wide variety of containers, and a refrigerated incubator and an incubator shaker, both of which are multi-functional benchtop environmental chambers designed to perform various shaking and stirring functions under controlled environmental conditions. Its line of magnetic stirrers include a patented high/low programmable magnetic stirrer; a four-place high/low programmable magnetic stirrer; a large volume magnetic stirrer a vailable in analog and digital versions; and a four-place general purpose stirrer also available in analog and digital versions. Catalyst Research Instruments. The Catalyst Research Instrument products are offered through the Company's subsidiary, Altamira. Its flagship product is the AMI-200(TM), which is used to perform traditional catalyst characterization experiments on an unattended basis. The product also features a stand-alone personal computer to control the instrument and incorporates proprietary LabVIEW(R)-based software. The Company's AMI-300(TM) Catalyst Characterization Instrument incorporates a sophisticated data handling package and is designed to perform dynamic temperature-programmed catalyst characterization experiments. All AMI model instruments are designed or adapted to a customer's individual requirements. Its other Catalyst Research Instrument products include reactor systems, high throughput systems and micro-activity reactors, including the Company's BenchCAT(TM) custom reactor systems. They are available with single and multiple reactor paths and with reactor temperatures up to 1200 degrees Celsius. The systems feature multiple gas flows, are available in gas and gas/liquid configurations, and feature one or more stand-alone personal computers with the LabVIEW(R)-based control software. In June 2011, the Company introduced its MicroBenchCat Microreactor, a fully automated reactor system. Bioprocessing Systems. The Company, through SBI, is engaged in the design and development of bioprocessing systems, principally microreactor systems using disposable sensors for vessels with volumes ranging from 250 milliliter to five liters. Upon development systems will be offered for sale or pursuant to royalty agreements. As of August 31, 2012, SBI had sublicensing agreements with two sublicensees which provided gross licensing fees of $160,600 for fiscal 2012, of which $76,800 was paid to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, ("UMBC") based on the terms of the related license. Sales of approximately $17,400 comprised small bioprocessing items and accessories. Product Development. The Company designs and develops substantially all of its products. Company personnel formulate plans and concepts for new products and improvements or modifications of existing products. The Company engages outside consultants to augment its capabilities in areas such as industrial and electronics design. Major Customer. Sales, principally of the Vortex- Genie 2 Mixer, to one customer, which is one of the two major distributors of laboratory equipment, represented 7% of total sales for fiscal 2012, and 10.5% of Benchtop Laboratory Equipment product sales. For fiscal 2011, sales to the customer accounted for 11.2% of total sales and 14.6% of the segment's sales. Sales of Catalyst Research Instrument products are generally pursuant to a few large orders amounting on average to over $100,000 to a limited number of customers. In fiscal 2012 no customer represented over 10% of total sales, however there were three customers that each represented over 10% of that segment's sales, or an aggregate of 44% of the segment's sales (14% of total sales). In fiscal 2011, sales to two customers, each of which represented at least 10% of that segment's sales, accounted for an aggregate of 30% of the segment's sales (7% of total sales). 5
Marketing. Benchtop Laboratory Equipment. The Company's Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products are generally distributed and marketed through an established network of domestic and overseas laboratory equipment distributors, who sell the Company's products through printed catalogs, websites and sales force. See "Major Customer". The Company also markets products through attendance at industry trade shows, trade publication advertising, brochures and catalogs, the Company's website, and commencing in fiscal 2010 through the efforts of its first sales managers. In general, due to the reliance on sales through the catalog distribution system, it takes two to three years for a new benchtop laboratory equipment product to begin generating meaningful sales. Catalyst Research Instruments. The Company's Catalyst Research Instruments are sold directly worldwide to universities, government laboratories, and chemical and petrochemical companies through its sales personnel and independent representatives engaged on a commission basis. Its marketing efforts include attendance at various trade shows, Altamira's website, outside sales representatives, and printed materials. Bioprocessing Systems. The Company's Bioprocessing Systems products, which are currently under development, will be offered both directly and through distribution worldwide to university, industrial, and government laboratories. It is anticipated that the related marketing efforts will mainly comprise attendance at various trade shows, publications, website, and dealer-related activities. Assembly and Production. The Company has an operating facility in Bohemia, New York from which its Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations are conducted and another in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from which its Catalyst Research Instruments Operations are conducted. The Company's production operations principally involve assembly of components supplied by various domestic and international independent suppliers. The Company has not commenced production of bioprocessing products, but anticipates that its current facilities will be adequate for such purpose. Patents, Trademarks, and Licenses. The Company holds several United States patents relating to its products, including a patent which expires in September 2015 for the TurboMix(TM), an accessory to the Vortex- Genie 2 Mixer, a patent which expires in July 2016 on the Roto- Shake Genie(R); a patent which expires in November 2022 on the MagStir Genie(R), MultiMagStir Genie(R), and Enviro-Genie(R), and a patent which expires in January 2023 on a biocompatible bag with integral sensors. The Company has various proprietary marks, including AMI(TM), BenchCAT(TM), BioGenie(R), Cellphase(R), Cellstation(R), Disruptor Beads(TM), Disruptor Genie(R), Enviro -Genie(R), Genie(TM), Incubator Genie(TM), MagStir Genie(R), MegaMag Genie(R), MicroPlate Genie(R), MultiMagStir Genie(R), Multi-MicroPlate Genie(R), Orbital-Genie(R), QuadMag Genie(R), Rotator Genie(R), Roto-Shake Genie(R), TurboMix(TM), and Vortex-Genie(R), each of which it considers important to the success of the related product. The Company also has several trademark applications pending. No representation can be made that any application will be granted or as to the protection that any existing or future trademark may provide. The Company has several licensing agreements for technology and patents used in the Company's business, including an exclusive license from UMBC with respect to rights and know-how under a patent held by UMBC related to non-disposable sensor technology, which the Company further sublicenses on an exclusive basis to a German company, except for non-exclusive rights held by the Company as it relates to the use of the technology with vessels of sizes ranging from 250 milliliters to 5 liters, and to applications in sub-milliliter volumes licensed to a third party. The Company also holds a license as to the technology related to its patent for the Roto-Shake 6
Genie, and a patent related to its TurboMix attachment for the Vortex-Genie and Disruptor Genie. Total license fees paid by the Company under all its licenses for fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011 amounted to $87,300 and $11,700, respectively. Foreign Sales. The Company's sales to overseas customers, principally in Asia and Europe, accounted for approximately 54% of the Company's net sales for each of fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011. Payments are in United States dollars and are therefore not subject to risks of currency fluctuation, foreign duties and customs. Seasonality. The Company does not consider its business to be seasonal. Backlog. The amount of backlog for Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products is not a significant factor because this line of products is comprised of standard catalog items requiring lead times which usually are not longer than two weeks. There is no backlog for Bioprocessing Systems. The backlog for Catalyst Research Instrument products as of June 30, 2012 was $303,200, all of which is expected to be filled by June 30, 2013, as compared to a backlog of $424,600 as of June 30, 2011, all of which was filled in fiscal 2012. Competition. Most of the Company's competitors are substantially larger and have greater financial, production and marketing resources than the Company. Competition is generally based upon technical specifications, price, and product recognition and acceptance. The Company's main competition for its Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products derives from private label brand mixers offered by laboratory equipment distributors in the United States and Europe. The Company believes its vortex mixer products and trademarks are factors in the world-wide market. The Company's major competitors for its Benchtop Laboratory Equipment are Henry Troemner, Inc. (a private label supplier to the two largest laboratory equipment distributors in the U.S. and Europe), IKA-Werke GmbH & Co. KG, a German company, Benchmark Scientific, Inc., (a United States importer of China-produced products), and Heidolph Instruments GmbH, a German company. The primary competition for the Company's Catalyst Research Instrument products is in the form of instruments produced internally by research laboratory staffs of potential customers. Major competitors in the United States include Quantachrome Instruments, and Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, each a privately-held company. The potential major competitors for the Company's Bioprocessing Systems are Applikon Biotechnology, B.V. (Netherlands), DASGIP Technology GmbH (Germany), and PreSens - Precision Sensing GmbH (Germany). Research and Development. The Company incurred research and development expenses, the majority of which related to new Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products, of $375,900 during fiscal 2012 compared to $324,400 during fiscal 2011. The Company expects research and development expenditures in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 to increase primarily due to the new product development activities related to new bioprocessing systems. Government and Environmental Regulation. The Company's products and claims with respect thereto have not required approval of the Food and Drug Administration or any other government approval. The Company's manufacturing operations, like those of the industry in general, are subject to numerous existing and proposed, if adopted, federal, state, and local regulations to protect the environment, establish occupational safety and health standards and cover other matters. The Company believes that its operations are in compliance with existing laws and regulations and the cost to comply is not significant to the Company. 7
Employees. As of August 31, 2012, the Company employed 28 persons (18 for the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations and 10 for the Catalyst Research Instruments Operations) of whom 24 were full-time, including its three executive officers. There were no employees for the Bioprocessing Systems Operations as all activities are being performed by employees of the other two operations. None of the Company's employees are represented by any union. Available Information. The Company's Annual Report to Stockholders for fiscal 2012, includes its Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Annual Report will be mailed to security holders together with the Company's proxy material and solicitation as it relates to the Company's 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. All the Company's reports, including Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K and other information filed with, or furnished to, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC" or the "Commission"), including amendments to such reports, are available on the SEC's website that contains such reports, proxy and information statements, and other information regarding companies that file electronically with the Commission. This information is available at www.sec.gov. In addition, all the Company's public filings can be accessed through the Company's website at http://scientificindustries.com/secfilings.html. Item 1A. Risk Factors. In connection with the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, important risk factors are identified below that could affect the Company's financial performance and could cause the Company's actual results for future periods to differ materially from any opinions or statements expressed with respect to such future periods in any current statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly revise any forward-looking announcements to reflect future events or circumstances. Dependence on Major Customers Sales to one customer, a major laboratory equipment distributor in the United States, represented 10.5% and 14.6% of the segment's sales for fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. Sales to another customer, an overseas laboratory equipment distributor also accounted for 12.1% and 11.8% of the sales of Benchtop Laboratory Equipment for fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. No representation can be made that the Company will be successful in continuing to retain either or both customers, the loss of which could have an adverse effect on future operating results of the Company. One Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Product Accounts for a Substantial Portion of Revenues The Company has a limited number of Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products with one product, the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer, accounting for approximately 63% and 68% of Benchtop Laboratory Equipment sales, for fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011 respectively, and 42% and 52% of total sales for fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011, respectively. The Company is a Small Participant in Each of the Industries in Which It Operates The Benchtop Laboratory Equipment industry is a highly competitive mature industry. Although the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer has been widely accepted, the annual sales of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products ($4,160,500 for fiscal 2012 and $4,525,100 for fiscal 2011) are significantly lower than the annual sales of many of its competitors in the industry. The principal competitors are substantially larger with much greater financial, production and marketing resources than the Company. There are constant new entrants into the vortex mixer market, including those offering products imported from China. 8
The production and sale of Catalyst Research Instruments products is highly competitive. Altamira's competitors include several companies with greater resources and many laboratories which produce their own instruments. The Company's Bioprocessing Systems operation is a participant in the fast-growing laboratory-scale sector of the larger bioprocessing products industry, which is dominated by several large companies with much greater resources than the Company. The Company's Ability to Grow and Compete Effectively Depends In Part on Its Ability to Develop and Effectively Market New Products Over the past ten years, the Company has continuously invested in the development and marketing of new Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products with a view to increasing revenues and reducing the Company's dependence on the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer. Gross revenues derived from such other Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products (those other than the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer) increased to $1,545,400 for fiscal 2012 from $1,484,000, for fiscal 2011. However, the segment's ability to compete will depend upon the Company's success in continuing to develop and market new laboratory equipment as to which no assurance can be given. The Company relies primarily on distributors and their catalogs to market its Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products, as is customary in the industry. Accordingly, sales of new products are heavily dependent on the distributors' decision to include and retain a new product in the distributors' catalogs and on their websites. It may be at least 24 to 36 months between the completion of development of a product and the distribution of the catalog in which it is first offered; not all distributors feature the Company's products in their catalogs. In fiscal 2010, the Company hired a new sales manager to bolster its sales efforts in the United States, and in fiscal 2011, the Company engaged a consultant overseas as its European Sales Manager. The Company's Catalyst Research Instruments line of products consists of only a few products. The ability of the Company to compete in this segment and expand the line will depend on its ability to make engineering improvements to existing products and develop and add new products incorporating more current technology. Over the last two fiscal years the Company has introduced two new catalyst research products to increase its product offerings and has continuously sought to expand its outside sales force. The success of the Company's new Bioprocessing Systems operation will be heavily dependent on its ability to develop and market new products. New products are being or are to be developed under research and development agreements with the sellers of the SBI assets augmented by the Company's other internal and external resources. Such products are of a complex nature of which the Company does not have previous experience. They will be subject to beta testing by end users, which could result in design and/or production changes which could delay development time. The sale and marketing of the products, at least initially, will be through the Company's attendance at trade shows, website, and a few select distributors. No assurance can be given that the amounts allocated by the Company for its new product development and sales and marketing programs will be sufficient to develop additional commercially feasible products which will be accepted by the marketplace, or that any distributor will include or retain any particular product in their catalogs and websites. 9
The Company May Be Subject to General Economic, Political, and Social Factors Orders for the Company's products, particularly its Catalyst Research Instruments products, depend in part, on the customer's ability to secure funds to finance purchases. Availability of funds can be affected by budgetary constraints. Factors including a general economic recession, such as the one which commenced in fiscal 2009 and negatively affected the Company since fiscal 2011, the European crisis, or major terrorist attack would likely have a negative impact on the availability of funding including government or academic grants to potential customers. The Company's ability to secure new Catalyst Research Instruments orders can also be affected by changes in domestic and international policies pertaining to energy and the environment, which could affect funding of potential customers. The Company is Heavily Dependent on Outside Suppliers for the Components of Its Products The Company purchases all its components from outside suppliers and relies on a few single suppliers for certain of its Benchtop Laboratory Equipment components, including the Vortex-Genie 2, mostly due to cost considerations. Many of the Company's suppliers, including United States vendors, produce the components directly or indirectly in overseas factories, and orders are subject to long lead times and potential other risks related to production in a foreign country. To minimize the risk of supply shortages, the Company keeps more than normal quantities on hand of the critical components that cannot easily be procured or, where feasible and cost effective, purchases are made from more than one supplier. The Company's Ability to Compete Depends in Part on Its Ability To Secure and Maintain Proprietary Rights to its Products The Company has no patent protection for its principal Benchtop Laboratory Equipment product, the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer, or for its Catalyst Research products and limited patent protection on a few other Benchtop Laboratory Equipment products. There are several competitive products available in the marketplace possessing similar technical specifications and design. As part of the asset purchase by SBI during fiscal 2012, the Company acquired the rights to various patents for bioprocessing products which it licenses from UMBC. There can be no assurance that any patent issued, licensed or sublicensed to the Company provides or will provide the Company with competitive advantages or will not be challenged by third parties. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that others will not independently develop similar products or design around the patents. Any of the foregoing activities could have a material adverse effect on the Company. Moreover, the enforcement by the Company of its patent or license rights may require substantial litigation costs. The Company Has Limited Management Resources The loss of the services of any of Ms. Helena Santos, the Company's Chief Executive and Financial Officer and President, Mr. Robert Nichols, the Company's Executive Vice President and Mr. Brookman March, President of Altamira, or any material expansion of the Company's operations could place a significant additional strain on the Company's limited management resources and could be materially adverse to the Company's operating results and financial condition. 10
The Common Stock of the Company is Thinly Traded and is Subject to Volatility As of August 31, 2012, there were only 1,335,712 shares of Common Stock of the Company outstanding, of which 326,772 shares (24%) were held by the directors and officers of the Company. The Common Stock of the Company is traded on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board and, historically, has been thinly traded. There have been a number of trading days during fiscal 2012 on which no trades of the Company's Common Stock were reported. Accordingly, the market price for the Common Stock is subject to great volatility. Item 2. Properties. The Company's executive offices and principal manufacturing facility for its Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations comprise approximately 25,000 square feet, are located in Bohemia, New York and held pursuant to a lease expiring in January 2015. The Company's Catalyst Research Instruments Operations are conducted from an approximately 9,000 square foot facility in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which the Company leases on a month-to-month basis, since July 31, 2011, until a new long- term lease is negotiated.

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. Forward-Looking statements. Certain statements contained in this report are not based on historical facts, but are forward-looking statements that are based upon various assumptions about future conditions. Actual events in the future could differ materially from those described in the forward-looking information. Numerous unknown factors and future events could cause such differences, including but not limited to, product demand, market acceptance, success of marketing strategy, success of expansion efforts, impact of competition, adverse economic conditions, and other factors affecting the Company's business that are beyond the Company's control, which are discussed elsewhere in this report. Consequently, no forward-looking statement can be guaranteed. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. This Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements and the related notes included elsewhere in this report. Overview. Income before income taxes decreased by 80% to $61,900 for fiscal 2012 from $307,200 for fiscal 2011, primarily as a result of the reduction in income and net sales of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations, and the operation of and acquisition costs of its recently commenced Bioprocessing Systems Operations. The Catalyst Research Instruments Operations also recorded a loss in fiscal 2012, albeit lower than that of fiscal 2011 due to significantly higher sales. The Company continues to be negatively impacted by adverse global economic conditions, reflecting the dependence of the Company's customers on discretionary funding for research. Results of Operations. Net sales for fiscal 2012 increased $332,800 (5.7%) to $6,202,600 from $5,869,800 for fiscal 2011 reflecting an increase of $596,200 (44.3%) in net sales of catalyst research instruments and the revenues of $101,200 (primarily in the form of net royalties received) by the recently commenced Bioprocessing Systems Operations, partially offset by a decrease of $364,600 (8.1%) in sales of benchtop laboratory equipment resulting from lower sales to U.S. customers. Sales of catalyst research instruments are comprised of a small number of large orders, typically averaging more than $100,000 each. As of June 30, 2012, the order backlog for these products was $303,200 compared to $424,600 as of June 30, 2011. Revenues derived from the new Bioprocessing Systems Operations consists of net royalties received from sublicensees and sales of new products currently under development. The gross profit percentage for fiscal 2012 was 38.0% compared to 41.0% for fiscal 2011 due to lower margins resulting from the sales mix between the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations and the Catalyst Research Instruments Operations. General and administrative expenses for fiscal 2012 increased $55,500 (4.7%) to $1,230,600 compared to $1,175,100 for fiscal 2011, primarily the result of amortization expense for the intangible assets and the acquisition costs of the Bioprocessing Systems Operations. Selling expenses for fiscal 2012 increased by $75,700 (11.9%) to $714,200 from $638,500 for fiscal 2011, primarily due to increased selling activities by the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations. 12
Research and development expenses increased by $51,500 (15.9%) to $375,900 compared to $324,400 for fiscal 2011, primarily the result of increased new product development by the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations in the fourth quarter, and costs incurred by the Bioprocessing Systems Operations. Total other income decreased by $11,200 (30.8%) to $25,200 for fiscal 2012 from $36,400 for fiscal 2011, mainly due to smaller cash balances and lower interest rates, and the interest expense incurred by the new Bioprocessing Systems Operations. The income tax benefit for fiscal 2012 was $4,200 compared to $79,600 income tax expense for fiscal 2011 resulting from the future deductions attributable to the SBI acquisition and research and development credits. As a result of the foregoing, net income for fiscal 2012 was $66,100, a decrease of $161,500 (71.0%) from $227,600 for fiscal 2011. Liquidity and Capital Resources. Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $138,500 to $769,300 as of June 30, 2012 from $907,800 as of June 30, 2011. Net cash provided by operating activities was $331,800 for fiscal 2012 as compared to $652,500 for fiscal 2011 due to lower income and a smaller change in accounts receivable balances. The prior year reflected a large collection by Altamira of accounts receivable outstanding as of June 30, 2010. Cash used in investing activities increased to $350,300 for fiscal 2012 compared to $269,700 for fiscal 2011 mostly due to the cash included in the asset purchase consideration by SBI. Net cash used in financing activities increased to $120,000 for fiscal 2012 compared to fiscal 2011 mainly due to the additional cash outlays required for the asset purchase, partially offset by the lower dividend paid in fiscal 2012. The Company's working capital was $3,417,200 as of June 30, 2012 compared to $3,724,000 as of June 30, 2011, primarily the result of lower operating income and the asset purchase by SBI. The Company has a line of credit with its bank, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. which provides for maximum borrowings of up to $700,000, bearing interest at 3.08 percentage points above the LIBOR Index, which was approximately 3.32% at June 30, 2012 and is to be secured by a pledge of collateral consisting of the inventory, accounts, chattel paper, equipment and general intangibles of the Company. Outstanding amounts are due and payable by June 13, 2013 with a requirement that the Company is to reduce the outstanding principal balance to zero during the 30 day period ending on the anniversary date of the promissory note. As of August 31, 2012, no borrowings under the line are outstanding. On September 21, 2012, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a cash dividend of $.03 per share of Common Stock payable on November 1, 2012 to holders of record as of the close of business on October 1, 2012. Management believes that the Company will be able to meet, absent a material capital expenditure, its cash flow needs during the 12 months ending June 30, 2013 from its available financial resources including its cash and investment securities, and operations. Capital Expenditures. During fiscal 2012, the Company incurred $75,300 in capital expenditures. The Company expects that based on its current operations, its capital expenditures will not be materially higher for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements. None. Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data. The Financial Statements required by this item are attached hereto on pages F1-F25. 13
Item 9. Changes In and Disagreements With Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure. Not applicable. Item 9A. Controls and Procedures. Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. As of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, based on an evaluation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), the Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer of the Company has concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in its Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the applicable time periods specified by the SEC's rules and forms. The Company also concluded that information required to be disclosed in such reports is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over the Company's financial reporting, as such term is defined in Securities Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f). The Company's internal controls over financial reporting are designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer of the Company conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company's internal controls over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012 based on the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control - Integrated Framework. Based on the assessment of the Company's Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, it was concluded that as of June 30, 2012, the Company's internal controls over financial reporting were effective based on these criteria. This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company's registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management's report in this annual report. Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. There was no change in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the most recent fiscal quarter that materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially affect the Company's internal controls over financial reporting. Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls. The Company's management, including its Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer, believes that its disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and are effective at the reasonable assurance level. However, management does not expect that its disclosure controls and procedures or its internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon 14
certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Item 9B. Other Information. Not applicable.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm Board of Directors and Shareholders Scientific Industries, Inc. Bohemia, New York We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Scientific Industries, Inc. and subsidiaries as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, shareholders' equity and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Scientific Industries, Inc. and subsidiaries as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. /s/ Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow, LLP ___________________________________________ Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow, LLP Melville, New York September 27, 2012 F-1

F-7 SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRIES, INC. & SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Nature of Operations Scientific Industries, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the "Company") design, manufacture, and market a variety of benchtop laboratory equipment, bioprocessing products and catalyst research instruments. The Company is headquartered in Bohemia, New York where it produces benchtop laboratory equipment for research and has another location in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where it produces a variety of custom-made catalyst research instruments and designs bioprocessing products. The equipment sold by the Company includes mixers, shakers, stirrers, refrigerated incubators, catalyst characterization instruments, reactor systems and high throughput systems. Principles of Consolidation The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Scientific Industries, Inc., Scientific Packaging Industries, Inc., an inactive wholly-owned subsidiary, Altamira Instruments, Inc. ("Altamira"), a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary, and Scientific Bioprocessing, Inc. ("SBI"), a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary, (all collectively referred to as the "Company"). All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. Revenue Recognition Revenue from product sales is recognized when all the following criteria are met: * Receipt of a written purchase order agreement which is binding on the customer. * Goods are shipped and title passes. * Prices are fixed. * Collectability is reasonably assured. * All material obligations under the agreement have been substantially performed. Substantially all orders are F.O.B. shipping point, all sales are final without right of return or payment contingencies, and there are no special sales arrangements or agreements with any customers. Royalty revenue received under the Company's sublicenses is recorded net of payments due to its licensors. Cash and Cash Equivalents The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents. On November 9, 2010, the Federal Deposit Insurance Company ("FDIC") issued a Final Rule providing unlimited insurance coverage of non- interest bearing transaction accounts, regardless of balance, for the period December 31, 2010 through December 31, 2012. At June 30, 2012, the Company held approximately $217,100 of its cash in non- interest bearing accounts. The remainder of its cash balance is subject to FDIC insurance limits. F-8
SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRIES, INC. & SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) Accounts Receivable In order to record the Company's accounts receivable at their net realizable value, the Company must assess their collectability. A considerable amount of judgment is required in order to make this assessment, including an analysis of historical bad debts and other adjustments, a review of the aging of the Company's receivables, and the current creditworthiness of the Company's customers. The Company has recorded allowances for receivables which it considered uncollectible, including amounts for the resolution of potential credit and other collection issues such as disputed invoices, customer satisfaction claims and pricing discrepancies. However, depending on how such potential issues are resolved, or if the financial condition of any of the Company's customers was to deteriorate and its ability to make required payments became impaired, increases in these allowances may be required. The Company actively manages its accounts receivable to minimize credit risk. The Company does not obtain collateral for its accounts receivable. Customer Advances In the ordinary course of business, customers may make advance payments for purchase orders. Such amounts, when received, are categorized as liabilities under the caption customer advances. Investment Securities Securities available for sale are carried at fair value with unrealized gains or losses reported in a separate component of shareholders' equity. Realized gains or losses are determined based on the specific identification method. Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (determined on a first in, first out basis) or market value, and have been reduced by an allowance for excess and obsolete inventories. The estimate is based on management's review of inventories on hand compared to estimated future usage and sales. Cost of work-in-process and finished goods inventories include material, labor and manufacturing overhead. Property and Equipment Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided for primarily by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Leasehold improvements are amortized by the straight-line method over the term of the related lease or the estimated useful lives of the assets, whichever is shorter. F-9
SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRIES, INC. & SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) Intangible Assets Intangible assets consist primarily of acquired technology, customer relationships, non-compete agreements, patents, licenses, trademarks and trade names. All intangible assets are amortized over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets, generally 5 to 10 years, except for customer relationships which are amortized on an accelerated (declining-balance) basis over their estimated useful lives. The Company continually evaluates the remaining estimated useful lives of intangible assets that are being amortized to determine whether events or circumstances warrant a revision to the remaining period of amortization. Goodwill and Long-Lived Assets Goodwill represents the excess of purchase price over the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired in a business combination. Goodwill and long-lived intangible assets are tested for impairment at least annually in accordance with the provisions of ASC No. 350, "Intangibles-Goodwill and Other" ("ASC No. 350"). ASC No. 350 requires that goodwill be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level (operating segment or one level below an operating segment) on an annual basis and between annual tests if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying value. Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including the identification of reporting units, assignment of assets and liabilities to reporting units, assignment of goodwill to reporting units, and determination of the fair value of each reporting unit. The Company tests goodwill and long-lived assets annually as of June 30, the last day of its fiscal year, unless an event occurs that would cause the Company to believe the value is impaired at an interim date. Impairment of Long-Lived Assets The Company follows the provisions of ASC No. 360-10, "Property, Plant and Equipment - Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets ("ASC No. 360-10"). ASC No. 360-10 requires evaluation of the need for an impairment charge relating to long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If an evaluation for impairment is required, the estimated future undiscounted cash flows associated with the asset would be compared to the asset's carrying amount to determine if a write down to a new depreciable basis is required. If required, an impairment charge is recorded based on an estimate of future discounted cash flows. No impairment charge has been recorded for the years ended June 30, 2012, and 2011. F-10
SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRIES, INC. & SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) Income Taxes The Company and its subsidiaries file a consolidated U.S. federal income tax return. Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. The Company provides for federal, and state income taxes currently payable, as well as for those deferred due to timing differences between reporting income and expenses for financial statement purposes versus tax purposes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributed to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect of a change in income tax rates is recognized as income or expense in the period that includes the enactment date. The Company recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs. Advertising Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising expense amounted to $26,700 and $26,000 for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Shipping and Handling The Company classifies costs associated with shipping and handling fees as a component of cost of goods sold. Stock Compensation Plan The Company has a ten-year stock option plan (the "2012 Plan") which provides for the grant of options to purchase up to 100,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock, par value $.05 per share ("Common Stock"), plus 57,000 options previously granted under the 2002 Stock Option Plan of the Company (the "Prior Plan"). The 2012 Plan provides for the granting of incentive or non-incentive stock options as defined in the 2012 Plan and options under the 2012 Plan may be granted until 2022. Incentive stock options may be granted to employees at an exercise price equal to 100% (or 110% if the optionee owns directly or indirectly more than 10% of the outstanding voting stock) of the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock on the date of the grant which shall not be less than the book value per share of Common Stock as of the end of the most recent fiscal quarter. Non-incentive stock options shall not be granted at less than the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock on the date of grant, and the per share book value. At June 30, 2012, 93,000 shares of Common Stock were available for grant under the 2012 Plan and the Prior Plan. F-11
SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRIES, INC. & SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) Stock Compensation Plan (Continued) Stock-based compensation is accounted for in accordance with ASC No. 718 "Compensation-Stock Compensation" ("ASC No. 718") which requires compensation costs related to stock-based payment transactions to be recognized. With limited exceptions, the amount of compensation cost is measured based on the grant-date fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued. In addition, liability awards are measured at each reporting period. Compensation costs are recognized over the period that an employee provides service in exchange for the award. During the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company granted 15,000 and 12,000 options that had a fair value of $15,700 and $19,900, respectively, to employees and consultants. The fair value of the options granted during fiscal years 2012 and 2011 were determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model. The weighted average assumptions used for fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, were an expected life of 7 and 6 years; risk free interest rate of 1.00% and 2.09%; volatility of 69% and 73%; and dividend yield of 1.54% and 2.99%. The weighted-average value per share of the options granted in 2012 and 2011 was $1.05 and $1.66, respectively, and stock-based compensation costs were $7,000 and $21,300 for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Stock-based compensation costs related to nonvested awards to be recognized in the future are $11,900 and $3,200 as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The Company did not grant any options or warrants as compensation for goods or services to non-employees, except to a director who was granted 10,000 options that had a fair value of $10,000 and $15,300 in each of the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, for consulting services. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially from management's estimates. Earnings Per Common Share Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per common share includes the dilutive effect of stock options. F-12
1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) New Accounting Pronouncements In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") no. 2011-08, Intangibles- Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) - Testing Goodwill for Impairment (ASU 2011-08), to allow entities to use a qualitative approach to test goodwill for impairment. ASU 2011-08 permits an entity to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. If it is concluded that this is the case, it is necessary to perform the currently prescribed two-step goodwill impairment test. Otherwise, the two-step goodwill impairment test is not required. ASU 2011-08 is effective for the Company in fiscal 2013 and earlier adoption is permitted. The Company opted for early adoption as of June 30, 2012. The adoption of ASU 2011-08 did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2011-05, "Comprehensive Income (ASC Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income," ("ASU No. 2011-05") which amends current comprehensive income guidance. This accounting update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of stockholders' equity. Instead, it requires the Company to report comprehensive income in either a single continuous statement of comprehensive income which contains two sections, net income and other comprehensive income, or in two separate but consecutive statements. ASU 2011-05 is effective for public companies during the annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 with early adoption permitted. The Company opted for early adoption as of March 31, 2012. The adoption of ASU 2011-05 did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows as it only requires a change in the format of our current presentation. 2. Acquisition On November 14, 2011 the Company through SBI, acquired substantially all of the assets of a privately owned company consisting principally of a license and sublicenses under patents held by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County ("UMBC") with respect to the design, development and production of bioprocessing methods, systems and products. The acquisition was pursuant to an asset purchase agreement ("APA") whereby the Company paid to the seller $260,000 in cash, issued 135,135 shares of Common Stock valued at $400,000, issued to UMBC a $230,000 36-month note payable, and agreed to make additional cash payments equal to 30% of net royalties received under the acquired license and sublicenses, to the sellers estimated at a present value of $128,000 on the date of acquisition. The Company was unable to obtain audited financial statements of the business acquired in connection with the acquisition. The inability to include the related audited financial statement as required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in the related Report on Form 8-K filing resulted in the inability of the Company to register under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, offerings of the Company's securities during the one year period ending November 2012. F-13
2. Acquisition (Continued) SBI's revenues are derived from royalties received by SBI under the various sublicense agreements, net of royalty payments due to UMBC and revenues from future sales of certain products being developed under its existing license. University, government, and industrial laboratories working primarily in the biotechnology industry worldwide are its targeted customers.

SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRIES, INC. & SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 4. Fair Value of Financial Instruments The Financial Accounting Standards Board defines the fair value of financial instruments as the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value measurements do not include transaction costs. The accounting guidance also expands the disclosure requirements around fair value and establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs. The hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three levels based on the extent to which inputs used in measuring fair value are observable in the market. Each fair value measurement is reported in one of the three levels, which is determined by the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. These levels are described below: Level 1 Inputs that are based upon unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets. Level 2 Quoted prices in markets that are not considered to be active or financial instruments for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly. Level 3 Prices or valuation that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable. The following tables set forth by level within the fair value hierarchy the Company's financial assets that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis at June 30, 2012 and 2011 according to the valuation techniques the Company used to determine their fair values: Fair Value Measurements Using Inputs Considered as Assets: Fair Value at June 30, 2012 Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 ______________ __________ _______ ________ Cash and cash equivalents $ 769,300 $ 769,300 $ - $ - Available for sale securities 718,300 718,300 - - __________ __________ _______ ________ Total $1,487,600 $1,487,600 $ - $ - ========== ========== ======= ======== Liabilities: Contingent consideration $ 107,400 $ - $ - $107,400 ========== ========== ======= ======== Fair Value Measurements Using Inputs Considered as Assets: Fair Value at June 30, 2011 Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 ______________ __________ _______ ________ Cash and cash equivalents $ 907,800 $ 907,800 $ - $ - Available for sale securities 693,400 693,400 - - __________ __________ _______ ________ Total $1,601,200 $1,601,200 $ - $ - ========== ========== ======= ======== F-17
