Plaintree Systems Inc Another Profitable Quarter For Q2-2012

Plaintree Systems Inc. (Plaintree, traded on CNSX under the symbol NPT).

Q2-2012 Results

Plaintree announced today that it has released its unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related management discussion and analysis for the six months ended September 30, 2011.

During the second quarter of fiscal 2012, Plaintree realized revenues of $5,036,449 and net profitability of $616,849.

For the first two quarters of this fiscal year, sales totaled $7,711,183 compared to $6,872,350 for the same period in fiscal 2011 and a net income of $529,240, compared $1,388,272 for first six months of fiscal 2011. The decreased net income in this period resulted from a lower cost of direct costs (i.e. materials) in the prior period (early fiscal 2011) due to a write-down of inventories (reflected in seasonally lower market prices) and increased operational costs during fiscal 2012.

“The Company relocated to a larger 135,000 sq/ft manufacturing facility around Christmas last year and a lot of production time over the next six months was spent organizing and setting up in the new location,” announced David Watson, Plaintree CEO. “Also, the creation of Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. has required a large investment in manpower and cash as we get it established. Both these investments affected profitability over the first two quarters of this year.”

The Company has the two former manufacturing plants for sale.

Basic (loss) earnings per share after deduction for accrued dividends was $(0.02) and $0.05 for the respective first six months of fiscals 2012 and 2011.

The Company adopted International Financial Standards (“IFRS”) effective April 1, 2011.

For more information on these results, please refer to Plaintree’s annual 2011 financial statements together with the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis report, copies of which can be obtained from the Company’s website at www.plaintree.com and/or under Plaintree’s name at www.sedar.com.
