IntriCon Reports 2011 First-Quarter Results

IntriCon Corporation (NASDAQ: IIN), a designer, developer, manufacturer and distributor of miniature and micro-miniature body-worn devices, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

For the 2011 first quarter, the company reported net sales of $13.8 million, versus net sales of $14.6 million for the prior-year period. The company reported a net loss in the 2011 first quarter of $290,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net income before discontinued operations of $178,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the prior-year first quarter.

“We delivered year-over-year sales gains in both hearing health and professional audio communications, but temporary softness in our medical business offset these advances,” said Mark S. Gorder, president and chief executive officer of IntriCon. “The 2010 fourth-quarter lull we saw in medical orders persisted during the 2011 first quarter, as a few large customers experienced fluctuations in demand and worked through inventory levels above their immediate needs. In discussions with our medical OEM customers, we continue to believe this lull in medical orders is temporary, and we anticipate order patterns to normalize in the second half of 2011.”

First-Quarter ResultsProfessional audio communications revenue rose 9.4 percent over the prior-year first quarter. Driving the increase was accelerated growth from the company’s high-performance microphone and hearing-protection products used in the aviation, police, military and professional audio markets. Hearing health was up 1.0 percent from the 2010 first quarter as pent-up demand and the overall rebound in the hearing aid market continued to favorably impact results. Medical declined 16.8 percent from the prior-year period due to the factors noted above.

Said Gorder, “Our professional audio communications business continues to post strong results. Customers are demanding smaller and more durable products that perform well in noisy or hazardous environments—and we’re meeting their needs by introducing value-added acoustical solutions for demanding environments.
