WSI Industries Reports Improved Third Quarter Results

WSI Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: WSCI) today reported net sales of $4,657,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 ended May 30, 2010, which were comparable to the prior fiscal 2009 third quarter of $4,736,000. The Company’s net income improved significantly to $158,000 or $.06 per diluted share versus the prior year quarter of $12,000 or break-even per diluted share. Year-to-date sales in fiscal 2010 were $12,970,000 as compared to $14,773,000 a year ago. Year-to-date diluted earnings per share for fiscal 2010 were at $.10 as compared to a loss of $.07 in the prior year.

Michael J. Pudil, chief executive officer, commented: “As reflected in our fiscal 2010 third quarter results, we have continued our steady growth out of the recession with our earnings. At $.06 per diluted share, our third quarter net income is at its highest level in 7 quarters.” Pudil continued: “Our ATV and motorcycle markets continue to lead the way with an increase in sales over the prior year quarter. In addition, and for the first time in several quarters, we have seen simultaneous growth in other parts of our core business as we experienced sales increases in our aerospace, defense and biosciences markets over the prior year fiscal third quarter. We anticipate that our fiscal 2010 fourth quarter will show additional improvements.”

President and COO Benjamin Rashleger stated: “We are very pleased with our results for the quarter considering the continued suppression of the manufacturing segment. These results again show WSI’s success in managing our business and costs in parallel with our current business levels. We have begun to see some industries show signs of improvement in their demand, and we will continue to cautiously control our expenses and make the necessary investments and staffing adjustments as we find them necessary to support our customer’s needs.” Rashleger continued: “We are finalizing our branding and marketing strategy, as well as our web site redesign project, and we are optimistic that these tools will provide support to our goal of expanding and diversifying our customer base. We are excited about the opportunities we are working on, and we continue to remain focused on managing our business to provide the highest value of service to our customers – existing and new.”
