ABATIX CORP. Reports Operating Results for First Quarter 2006
DALLAS, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ABATIX CORP. (Nasdaq: ABIX) today announced net sales of $16,606,000 for the first quarter of 2006 increased 13% from net sales of $14,727,000 in 2005 and net earnings of $220,000 or $.13 per share for 2006 increased from net earnings of $198,000 or $.12 per share in 2005. The increase in sales for 2006 is primarily attributable to sales in the construction, industrial safety and environmental markets as the U.S. economy remains strong. 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, partially offset by higher interest expense.
Mr. Terry Shaver, CEO, stated, We are pleased with the strength in our markets and remain hopeful the current status of the economy will continue for the foreseeable future. The current economy provides an opportunity for growth in our core markets. In addition to top line growth, we also continue to focus on streamlining our operations and controlling costs. Our website is in the process of being upgraded and will contain more information and enhanced online ordering and customer self-service functionality. We anticipate rolling out our improved website by the end of the second quarter of 2006. In conclusion, I am very proud of the team we have assembled, as they are committed and focused on our success.
