|Fiscal Year Business Review|
|President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel S. Jaffee said, “This year’s results reflect one-time charges and new product spending that negatively impacted earnings.|
|“A one-time, pre-tax charge of $1,623,000 was taken in the fourth quarter following an announcement we made in the third quarter to relocate coarse clay production from our plant in Mounds, Illinois to our plants in Mississippi. $1,200,000 of these charges was for non-cash asset write-offs, and the balance was for severance and other employee related expenditures related to the relocation. We are continuing to assess the long-term economics of the Mounds plant. Mining and processing has become relatively more costly in Illinois than at other Oil-Dri plant locations. Oil-Dri is fortunate to operate five plants throughout the country and will continue to rationalize our production capacity to our best long-term advantage.|
