Universal Power Group Reports First Quarter 2011 Earnings

Stocks in this article: UPG

Universal Power Group, Inc. (NYSE Amex: UPG), a Texas-based distributor and supplier of batteries and related power accessories and a third-party logistics provider, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

For the first quarter, UPG reported net income of $402,677, or $0.08 per share, on net sales of $21.6 million, compared with net income of $505,709, or $0.10 per share, on net sales of $26.0 million in the first quarter of 2010.

“We made a number of significant accomplishments in the first quarter of 2011 to drive UPG’s future growth and profitability,” stated Ian Edmonds, UPG’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Sales to customers other than ADT showed solid growth, and our gross margins continued to improve over the prior year, even as our operating expenses remained flat. In April, we completed our acquisition of Progressive Technologies, Inc. (PTI), which we believe will further support our long-term growth initiatives.”

First Quarter Results

Net sales for the first quarter fell 17.1 percent, to $21.6 million, from $26.0 million in the first quarter of 2010. Net sales of batteries and related power accessories to customers excluding ADT Security Services (formerly Broadview Security) and its authorized dealers grew 12.4 percent, to $16.8 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared to $15.0 million for the first quarter of 2010. Net sales to ADT Security Services and its authorized dealers in the first quarter of 2011 were $4.7 million, a decrease of 57.1 percent from $11.0 million in the same quarter of 2010. This decline was due to the integration of Broadview Security, which was acquired by Tyco International in May 2010, and merged into ADT Security Services. The Company continues to work closely with ADT Security Services and its authorized dealers to maintain the level of quality and service they have come to expect from UPG, while supporting their current business. In addition, UPG remains focused on growing sales of batteries and related power accessories.
