STUART, FL--(Marketwired - August 14, 2014) - Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LBMH) today announced the financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2014, increased by $1,087,000, or 6.2%, to $18,578,000, compared with net sales of $17,491,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Net sales for the nine months ended June 30, 2014, increased by $3,058,000, or 5.9%, to $54,834,000, compared with net sales of $51,776,000 for the nine months ended June 30, 2013. The increase in net sales was primarily due to our continued emphasis on our direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and our emphasis on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for our recurring customer base.

Income from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014, decreased by $240,000, or 7.2%, to $3,116,000, compared with the three months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in operating income is primarily attributed to an increase in advertising expense, general and administrative expenses, and bad debt expense. 

For the nine months ended June 30, 2014, income from operations increased by $1,241,000, or 15.6%, to $9,213,000, compared with the nine months ended June 30, 2013. The increase in operating income is primarily attributed to increased gross profits driven by our increased sales volumes as well as a reduction as a percentage of sales in payroll and bad debts expense.

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $1,983,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2,014,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 was $5,716,000 or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4,786,000 or $0.09 per diluted share, for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 an increase of 19.4%.

The Company had cash of $10,264,000 at June 30, 2014, compared with cash of $12,453,000 at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $2,189,000. The decrease in cash for the nine months ended June 30, 2014, was primarily due to $3,945,000 of cash used in financing activities and, $310,000 of cash used in investing activities, partially offset by $2,066,000 of cash provided by operating activities.

"During our fiscal third quarter we made key investments in our organizational infrastructure to improve the efficiency and performance of our customer-facing staff. These expenditures resulted in higher general and administrative expenses in the quarter. We are investing in acquiring and serving our customers, which is central to our mission as a healthcare products provider and to achieving the maximum return on our advertising expenditures. We are pleased that we have grown sales and income over the last nine months and we will continue to make investments that support our growth and create efficiencies that improve our operating margins," commented Mark Libratore, President and CEO.
