Net income for the first quarter of 2017 increased 8.5% to $550,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $507,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the same period of 2016


Gross margin for the first quarter of 2017 increased to 39.9%, up from 35.8% in the first quarter of 2016


Company repurchased and retired 362,700 shares of common stock at a cost of $1.2 million



Nogales, Arizona – May 9, 2017 – Alpha Pro Tech, Ltd. (NYSE MKT: APT), a leading manufacturer of products designed to protect people, products and environments, including disposable protective apparel and building products, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.


Lloyd Hoffman, CEO of Alpha Pro Tech, commented, “Our earnings increased year-over-year as a result of our continued efforts to reduce product costs while controlling operating expenses, despite a softness in Building Supply sales, particularly in our synthetic roof underlayment line of products. A corporate mandate from one of our large distributors to lower inventory levels was a significant driver of lower sales in the Building Supply segment for the quarter. We expect that Building Supply segment sales will accelerate in the latter half of 2017 and may reach record levels.”


“We further reduced inventory levels by another 3% compared to year-end 2016 in an effort to further improve efficiencies in our operations, optimize the use of capital and generate positive cash from operations to support our share repurchase program,” concluded Hoffman.
