Cyanotech Reports Financial Results For The First Quarter Of Fiscal 2012

Stocks in this article: CYAN

“The significant increases in packaged product sales are attributed to our focus on the growing consumer market for health and nutrition supplement products, combined with recent media reports regarding the benefits of both astaxanthin and spirulina.”

“We believe that Cyanotech’s high-quality, Hawaiian spirulina and natural astaxanthin will continue to benefit from increasing general consumer demand for natural nutritional products with proven value,” Bailey concluded.

Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2011 compared to March 31, 2011 were $3,109,000 compared to $2,062,000. Working capital was $6,715,000 compared to $6,285,000. Inventory was $2,809,000 compared to $3,627,000.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2011, Spirulina sales accounted for 37% of total revenues and natural Astaxanthin sales for 63%. International sales were 40% of total sales.
