WD-40 Company Reports Increase In Fourth Quarter Sales and Income Exceeds Guidance

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ — WD-40 Company (Nasdaq: WDFC) today reported net sales for the fourth quarter ended August 31, 2009 of $77.8 million, an increase of 1.1% from the fourth quarter last year. Year-to-date net sales were $292.0 million, down 7.9% from the same period last year.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $7.6 million, up 63.8% compared to the prior year’s quarter. Earnings per share in the fourth quarter were $0.46 compared to $0.28 during the same period last year. Year-to-date net income was $26.3 million, a decrease of 4.8% from last year. For the year, earnings per share were $1.58, compared to $1.64 for the same period last year. More detailed information will be available on WD-40 Company’s 10-K that will be filed the week of October 19, 2009.

“While we have seen tough times during the past year with lots of uncertainty, our tribe focused on reaching our target goals and delivered impressive results,” said Garry Ridge, WD-40 Company President and CEO. “During the year we made strategic decisions that should benefit us in the long-term. These include diverting R&D resources to our multi-purpose maintenance products and adjacent categories, exploring the opportunities for the WD-40 brand, developing our business through acquisitions and strategic partnerships, and continuing our efforts to expand geographically around the world.”

During the year foreign currency exchange rates negatively affected net sales by $30.0 million and net income by $4.5 million.

“In constant currency, we would have seen sales increases of 2% for the year and net income increases of 11% for the year,” Ridge said.

The Company’s constant currency disclosures represent the translation of the Company’s current fiscal year revenues and expenses from the functional currencies of WD-40 Company subsidiaries to U.S. dollars utilizing the exchange rates in effect for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.
