3.8.2004: Meldung: IMPCO 2ndQuarter 2004 Results

IMPCO Technologies today reported results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2004.

IMPCO"s second quarter fiscal 2004 results were $32.5 million in revenues and $3.0 million in operating income, as compared to $18.3 million in revenues and $1.1 million in operating income in the same period in 2003. Second quarter of fiscal year 2004 revenues increased $14.1 million, or 77%, while operating income increased $1.9 million, or 182%, compared to the same period in 2003. Net income for the second quarter of 2004 was $1.0 million and 5 cents net income per share, compared to a net loss of ($0.2) million and 1 cent net loss per share in the same period in 2003.

IMPCO""""s first half fiscal 2004 results were $61.1 million in revenues and $5.4 million in operating income, as compared to $37.9 million in revenues and $2.2 million in operating income in the first half of 2003. First half fiscal 2004 revenues increased $23.2 million, or 61%, while operating income increased $3.2 million, or 146%, compared to the same period in 2003. Net income for the first half of fiscal 2004 was $1.5 million and 8 cents net income per share, compared to net income of $0.3 million and 2 cents net income per share in the same period in 2003.

Robert M. Stemmler, CEO and Chairman, said, "We are very pleased with IMPCO""""s favorable second quarter and first half results. The profitable growth of our business is the result of our successful efforts to develop new businesses and the growth of our core business due to the improving world economy." Mr. Stemmler mentioned that new business growth from the emission certified fuel and engine system product lines accounted for $17.7 million of the company""""s $23.2 million first half growth versus the same period last year. He also stated that growth of the traditional core business during the first half was 24% greater than the same period last year. Also mentioned was that the BRC operation in Italy, of which IMPCO has a 50% share, had a strong second quarter and first half. BRC first half sales were $23.2 million. Net income of $1.1 million showed a marked improvement of $1.2 million versus the same period in 2003. Significant growth of the transportation market in Asia and Eastern Europe was a major reason.

Mr. Stemmler said that the company expected a normal seasonal slow down during the summer months in the third quarter. He projected third quarter revenues approaching $30 million with an operating income approaching $2.5 million, excluding the unconsolidated BRC operation. He said the company is especially bullish on 2005 anticipating the continued growth of the emission certified engine and fuel system business in the USA and the continued growth of the global transportation markets for IMPCO and BRC brand products.
