Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, announced that the Company’s Net Sales for the first nine months of 2016 were 1.9% higher than last year, increasing to $68,408,000 from $67,165,000 for the periods ending September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Net Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2016 decreased 2.5% compared to the same period in 2015.
The Company’s Net Income for the first nine months of 2016 was $10,244,000, versus $11,044,000 during the same period last year, decreasing 7.2%. For the quarter, Net Income was 8.1% lower than last year.
Amid a slow start, the Company’s 2016 unit sales volume is currently outpacing last year’s unprecedented sales level, thus emulating the growth trend established over the last several years. While Net Income for 2016 is currently lower than last year, largely due to an increase in legal related administrative expenses and currency related losses stemming from Brexit, the Company’s margins have actually improved as a percent of sales during the last quarter, and the results remain extremely strong.
