36th Consecutive Year of Profitability
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, April 25, 2008 -- Bowlin Travel Centers, Inc. (OTCBB: BWTL) today reported net sales from continuing operations for fiscal year ended January 31, 2008 were up 1.6% to $28.183 million from $27.751 million for fiscal year ended January 31, 2007.  For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2008, Bowlin’s net sales from continuing operations increased 3.5% to $6.575 million from $6.351 million in the same period of fiscal year 2007.
Earnings per share for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2008 were $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to $0.13 per basic and diluted share for the twelve months ended January 31, 2007.  A loss of $0.03 per basic and diluted share was reported for the fourth quarter period ended January 31, 2008 compared to earnings per share of $0.05 per basic and diluted share in the same period of the prior year.
Michael L. Bowlin, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented,  “Despite the adverse retail conditions that were part of our nation’s slowing economy during Bowlin’s fiscal 2008, I am pleased to report our 36th year of profitability.  Sales at our travel centers were affected by rising fuel prices in much the same manner as retail operations across the nation have been reporting.  Decreased traffic on the highways as a result of the higher fuel costs and periodic weather related conditions ultimately impacted our retail merchandise sales and food sales.  We nonetheless reported an increase in net sales for the quarter and twelve-month periods, offset by increases in the cost of goods sold and general and administrative expenses.  We recorded the sale of one underperforming location during the second quarter of fiscal 2008 that added $549,000, net of taxes, to net income and increased our marketable securities cash position by $1.500 million.  Two other underperforming locations remain on the market for sale.
