BUSINESS REVIEW

 

President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel S. Jaffee said, “We are very disappointed with the earnings for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2014. Fiscal 2013’s exceptionally low income tax rate of 16.6% makes it difficult to compare year over year results, as this year’s tax rate of 26.3% returned to a more historic norm. Nonetheless, we are not pleased with the overall financial results of Fiscal 2014. While our sales increased, higher costs negatively impacted our bottom line. The decrease in net income was primarily due to increased costs for mining, materials, packaging, freight and advertising.

 

“However, there were many positive accomplishments this year and we believe they will benefit Oil-Dri in the years to come. Fiscal 2014 accomplishments include:

 

·Sales of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light were up 33% year over year
·We successfully integrated the tons gained from the acquisition of MFM
·The design and development of our bleaching earth capacity expansion project at our Georgia facility is well underway
·Amlan International has opened and is running a business in China,
Amlan Trading (Shenzhen) Company, Ltd., in order to support the region’s growing animal health market
·Mark Lewry joined Oil-Dri as COO, overseeing the Business to Business products group and the supply chain, which includes Manufacturing, Logistics and Procurement
