Bolt Technology Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2010 Results
Bolt Technology Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select Market: BOLT) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.
Sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, the three months ended June 30, 2010, amounted to $9,880,000 compared to $11,063,000 for the fourth quarter last year. Net income for the quarter amounted to $1,634,000 ($0.19 per share) compared to $2,191,000 ($0.25 per share) for the fourth quarter last year.
For the year ended June 30, 2010, sales amounted to $31,485,000 compared to $48,876,000 last year. Net income for the year amounted to $4,954,000 ($0.58 per share) compared to $10,501,000 ($1.22 per share) last year.
Raymond M. Soto, Bolt’s chairman, president and CEO, commented, “The Company’s operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2010 continue to reflect industry-wide lower marine seismic exploration activity. However, we are pleased to report that fourth quarter sales and net income increased 68% and 140%, respectively, over the third quarter and resulted in our best quarter of fiscal 2010. We are hopeful that the momentum of the fourth quarter will continue into fiscal 2011 and that the impact on the marine seismic industry associated with the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico will be minimal.”Mr. Soto continued, “We remain committed to enhance our Company’s growth through acquisitions, and we are currently evaluating several acquisition possibilities. In addition, in June 2010, our Board of Directors authorized a program to repurchase up to $10,000,000 of our common stock and to date, we have repurchased approximately 100,000 shares.” Bolt Technology Corporation is a leading worldwide developer and manufacturer of marine seismic acquisition equipment used for offshore exploration for oil and gas.
