CHICAGO-(October 7, 2016)-Oil-Dri Corporation of America (NYSE: ODC) today announced net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 of $5,261,000 or $0.72 of earnings per diluted share. This compared to net income of $5,066,000, or $0.71 of earnings per diluted share in the same quarter of the prior year. Net sales of $64,916,000 in the quarter decreased by 1% compared to net sales of $65,519,000 in the same quarter of the prior year.
Net income for the fiscal year of $13,613,000 or $1.87 of earnings per diluted share was an 18% increase compared to net income of $11,368,000 or $1.59 of earnings per diluted share in the prior year.

Net income and earnings per share for both the quarter and the fiscal year benefited from an improved gross profit margin and a lower effective tax rate. The effective tax rate of 5.2% in fiscal year 2016, compared to 19.8% in fiscal year 2015, was driven by the release of the valuation allowance that had been historically accumulated and associated with approximately $1,680,000 of domestic Alternative Minimum Tax (“AMT”) credits.
