ABATIX CORP. Reports Operating Results for 2006
MESQUITE, Texas, March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ABATIX CORP. (Nasdaq: ABIX) today announced net sales of $66,448,000 for 2006 decreased 6% from net sales of $70,626,000 in 2005 and net earnings of $998,000 or $.58 per share for 2006 decreased from net earnings of $2,084,000 or $1.22 per share in 2005. The decrease in sales is primarily attributable to the absence of revenues generated as a result of the hurricanes in 2005. This decrease is partially offset by increased sales to the industrial and construction markets. The decrease in profitability is also primarily due to such lower sales volume. Other factors contributing to the decrease in profitability were the costs associated with operating our temporary facility in Louisiana until August 2006, the investment in our new Jacksonville facility and increased costs related to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
Mr. Terry Shaver, CEO, stated, Apart from the impact of the hurricanes in 2005, we are pleased with our growth within the industrial and construction markets. We are hopeful the U.S. economy remains stable, which should provide us the opportunity to continue to grow our business and improve our profitability.
Mr. Shaver, continued, As part of our long-term growth strategy, we opened a location in Jacksonville, Florida in August 2006. Although we expect it will take this facility through 2007 to become profitable, we are excited about the opportunity to serve the customers in the southeastern U.S. Finally, we continue to evaluate other growth opportunities through geographic expansion, new product lines and additional sourcing opportunities for current product lines to enhance the long-term growth prospects.
