Goodfellow Reports its Results for the Third Quarter Ended May 31, 2014

DELSON, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Goodfellow Inc. (TSE: GDL) announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended May 31, 2014. The Company reported net earnings of $2.1 million or $0.25 per share compared to net earnings of $2.5 million or $0.29 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the third quarter were $134.0 million compared to $138.2 million last year. Sales in the US and export activities maintained their growth throughout the third quarter while sales in Canada declined due to the late spring, the provincial election in Quebec and decreasing housing starts in Eastern Canada. Ontario and Western Canada sales posted a stronger performance again to mitigate this decline. On the operating side, costs remained under control in the face of a challenging third quarter. As a result, direct, selling, and administrative expenses decreased slightly compared to last year at $21.2 million ($21.5 million last year).

For the nine months ended May 31, 2014, the Company generated net earnings of $3.0 million or $0.35 per share compared to net earnings of $2.3 million or $0.27 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the nine months of fiscal 2014 were $339.8 million compared to $345.7 million for the same period a year ago.

"The most difficult winter at most of our customers carried through into Q3 and results were far from expectations." said Richard Goodfellow, President and Chief Executive Officer. "There have been strong signs of confidence in most of the business community and some recovery since. All sectors and product groups were sluggish overall as retail and manufacturing were particularly hard hit in most areas. We do not hold out any unusual expectations for the 4th Quarter but clearly our year to August 31st will be determined by the results to come."

Goodfellow Inc. is one of eastern Canada's largest independent re-manufacturers and distributors of lumber and hardwood flooring products. Goodfellow shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GDL.
