Natural Alternatives International: Fiscal 2009 Q1 Results

Die untenstehende Meldung ist eine Original-Meldung des Unternehmens. Sie ist nicht von der ECOreporter.de-Redaktion bearbeitet. Die presserechtliche Verantwortlichkeit liegt bei dem meldenden Unternehmen.

Natural Alternatives International, Inc., a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, today announced a net loss from continuing operations of $349,000 or $0.05 per share on net sales from continuing operations of $19.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2008.

The net sales from continuing operations of $19.5 million in the first quarter represented a decrease of $3.4 million or 14.8% from $22.9 million in the comparable prior year quarter. For the quarter ended September 30, 2008, contract manufacturing sales declined $3.1 million or 14.1% from the comparable quarter last year due to lower sales volumes to one of our largest customers and the impact of unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations. Net sales from our branded products declined $282,000 or 26.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2008 due to the continued softening of our Pathway to Healing® product line.

The net loss from continuing operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $349,000 or $0.05 per share compared to net income of $751,000 or $0.11 per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The net loss from continuing operations was primarily attributable to lower net sales and higher per unit manufacturing costs due to the lower sales volumes. We also incurred a net loss from discontinued operations of $1.048 million or $0.15 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 compared to a loss of $328,000 or $0.05 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The increased net loss from discontinued operations was primarily attributable to employee termination costs, facility closure costs and loss on the sale of the As We Change® catalog. Overall, the first quarter loss was $1.397 million or $0.20 per share compared to income of $423,000 or $0.06 per diluted share in the comparable quarter last year.

As of September 30, 2008, NAI had cash and certificates of deposit of $3.8 million and working capital of $16.1 million compared to $3.5 million and $18.1 million, respectively, in the comparable prior year quarter. As of September 30, 2008, we had $6.6 million available under our working capital line of credit.

President Randell Weaver stated, "Like many other companies, the recent economic conditions have impacted our operations. During the remainder of fiscal 2009 we intend to aggressively manage our business to reduce costs as appropriate and leverage our state of the art and certified manufacturing facilities in an effort to expand our contract manufacturing customer base. For the second quarter of fiscal 2009, we expect net sales to be in line with first quarter net sales, to incur a smaller overall loss and to maintain a strong balance sheet. If current economic conditions continue, we expect continued pressure on our customers, vendors and ourselves, as well as our competitors. We believe we are well positioned to respond appropriately to current economic conditions and capitalize on changing economic conditions because of our cash reserves, excellent manufacturing facilities, good customer relationships and industry standing."
