Global-Tech Advanced Innovations Inc. (NASDAQ:GAI) today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011 (the Company’s third quarter of fiscal 2012).
Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 were $44.2 million, an increase of approximately 81% when compared to $24.4 million for the corresponding quarter in fiscal 2011. Net sales of electronic components and revenues from electronic manufacturing services (EMS) increased approximately 33% and 19%, respectively, compared to the corresponding quarter in fiscal 2011, while sales of home appliances (primarily floor care products) nearly tripled due to the Company’s planned exit from this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 and the related increase in purchase orders from customers seeking to increase their inventory. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $3.3 million, or $1.09 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.48 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
Net sales for the nine months ended December 31, 2011 were $103.1 million, up approximately 37% when compared to $75.2 million in the corresponding nine-month period in fiscal 2011. In the first nine months of fiscal 2012, net sales of home appliances, electronic components and EMS revenues increased approximately 60%, 25% and 5%, respectively, compared to the corresponding period in fiscal 2011. Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 was $2.9 million, or $0.97 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.51 per share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2011.
John C.K. Sham, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our third quarter is typically our strongest and we were pleased with the improved financial performance in several areas of our business. Improved results in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 were due in part to sales increases and improved profit margins in the Company’s three business segments, as well as declining commodity prices in the second half of calendar 2011 and the easing of inflationary pressures in China. These factors, while contributing positively to the Company’s third quarter operating results, are likely to change in the near future.”
