MOD-PAC CORP. Reports Third Quarter 2010 Diluted EPS Of $0.28
MOD-PAC CORP. (NASDAQ: MPAC) (the “Company”), a manufacturer of custom and stock paper board packaging and personalized print products, today reported total revenue of $12.38 million in the third quarter of 2010, which ended October 2, 2010, a decrease of 1.6% from total revenue of $12.59 million in the 2009 third quarter.
Net income for the third quarter was $1.0 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, relatively flat compared with net income of $1.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the prior year period. The third quarter of 2009 was positively impacted by $367 thousand in one-time items comprised of a $263 thousand fair value adjustment of impaired Specialty Print and Direct Mail (“SPDM”) assets and a $104 thousand gain on the sale of SPDM assets. Excluding those benefits, third quarter 2009 adjusted net income would have been $0.64 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. (See reconciliation of net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share to adjusted net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share in the attached tables.) The increase in net income over the adjusted prior year period was largely the result of the improved operating leverage from productivity and cost reduction measures that were implemented since last year’s third quarter.
Mr. Daniel G. Keane, President and CEO of MOD-PAC CORP., commented, “We executed well this quarter, by continuing to prudently manage our costs which helped drive our gross margin expansion, and the 55% year-over-year increase in net income, net of adjusted items. While demand for our custom folding carton business tempered a bit this past quarter, we have achieved market share gains in 2010 and we are working hard to build on that momentum.”
