ROYAL OAK, Mich., Aug. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bonal International, Inc. announced that fiscal year 2019 started off slowly in comparison with last year’s strong start. Revenue was $412,281, down 33.0 percent in the first quarter compared to $615,798 from last year’s first quarter. Net income for the quarter was essentially breakeven at $102 compared to last year’s $109,163 for the same quarter. Earnings per share were $0.00 compared to $0.06 in last year’s first quarter.
“The first quarter was marked by economic uncertainty due to tariff discussion affecting various industries that work directly with the American steel industry,” said Thomas E. Hebel, President and CEO of Bonal International, Inc. While this situation hindered our pattern of growth in this quarter, Bonal remains optimistic. The economy is continuing to grow, our current customers continue to show tremendous support for our patented Meta-Lax process, and we will have greater opportunities to capitalize on our efforts as the economic situation normalizes.”
