ABATIX CORP. Reports Operating Results for 2005
DALLAS, March 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ABATIX CORP. (Nasdaq: ABIX) today announced net sales of $70,626,000 for 2005 increased 34% from net sales of $52,892,000 in 2004 and net earnings of $2,084,000 or $1.22 per share for 2005 increased from net earnings of $214,000 or $.13 per share in 2004. The increase in sales for 2005 is primarily attributable to sales to restoration customers in response to weather related events in the Gulf Coast region and California, the improvement in the manufacturing and commercial construction markets as the U.S. economy remains strong, and inflationary pressure on certain products causing increased selling prices. The increase in profitability is primarily attributed to the higher sales volume without a corresponding increase in general and administrative costs, a substantial portion of which are considered fixed costs.
Mr. Terry Shaver, CEO, stated, We are pleased with the improvements that have been made in all our markets and remain hopeful the status of the economy will continue in 2006 which provides us the opportunity for growth in our core markets. The impact on our business from the 2005 hurricanes is estimated to be approximately $9,000,000 compared to an estimate of approximately $4,000,000 in 2004 from the Florida hurricanes. The impact on our business from the 2005 hurricanes is continuing in 2006, although this impact in 2006 will be substantially less than the impact in 2005. We currently expect the revenues from the 2005 hurricanes to continue to decline, as they did in Florida in 2004. If the revenues reach a point where they can not support the temporary facility in Louisiana, we will close that facility and support our customers from our permanent facilities. Depending on the timing, that decision could result in a charge to earnings in 2006 for the closure costs. Finally, without a similar event or events in 2006 that create the same opportunity, it will be difficult for the Company to match the 2005 results.
Mr. Shaver, continued, Our focus continues to be on growing our core business, streamlining our operations and controlling costs; however, the Company will most likely need to increase costs in order to have significant growth. In conclusion, we will undertake steps in 2006 in an attempt to achieve positive results for the long-term success of the Company.
