Gross profit                           11,755        10,978       7.1%
                                                                      
Operating income                        3,500         2,258      55.0%
                                                                      
Net income                        $     2,120   $     1,352      56.8%
                                                                      

Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2013, increased by $1,086,000, or 6.2%, to $18,637,000, compared with net sales of $17,551,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase in net sales was due to our continued emphasis on our direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for our recurring customer base.

Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2013, increased by $777,000, or 7.1%, to $11,755,000, compared with gross profit of $10,978,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase is attributed to increased sales volumes and a reduction in product costs for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Income from operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013, increased by $1,242,000, or 55.0%, to $3,500,000, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase in operating income is attributed to increased gross profit driven by our increased sales volumes at reduced levels of operating expenses.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $2,120,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1,352,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.

The Company had cash of $12,195,000 at December 31, 2013, compared with cash of $12,453,000 at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $258,000. The decrease in cash for the three months ended December 31, 2013, was due to $1,518,000 of cash used in financing activities, primarily cash dividends paid to shareholders, and $47,000 of net cash used in investing activities, partially offset by $1,307,000 of cash provided by operating activities.

Other Significant Events for the First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014

  • On November 20, 2013, the Company's common stock was listed and began trading on the NYSE MKT exchange, increasing visibility and shareholder liquidity.
  • During the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per common share.

Mark Libratore, the Company's President and CEO, commented, "Our financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 demonstrate our continued emphasis on growing our customer base, increasing our earnings, and improving our operating margins. The cash generated from our operations provides a quarterly cash dividend to our shareholders and the flexibility for the Company to grow through a combination of our direct response advertising efforts and strategic acquisitions that allow us to acquire new customers at competitive rates.

We will continue to manage the levels of our direct response advertising spend, implement process improvements, and explore potential acquisition targets to grow our business and increase operating margins during fiscal year 2014."
