Stocks in this article: CYAN

For the year, spirulina sales accounted for 35% of total revenues and natural astaxanthin sales for 65%. International sales were 33% of total sales.

Mr. Bailey commented, “We are pleased with our business results and made significant progress in improving our processes, systems, facilities and organization in fiscal 2012. We are focused on continuing to strengthen our infrastructure to support the substantial growth we expect to generate for the foreseeable future.”

Vice President and CFO Jolé Deal commented that “as part of strengthening our foundation, we’ve made significant improvements in the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures. As a result, the material weakness that had been identified in previous years no longer exists.”

Fourth Quarter 2012

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, revenues were $5,986,000 compared to $5,218,000. Gross profit was $2,053,000, with gross profit margin of 34.3%, compared to gross profit of $1,798,000 and gross profit margin of 34.5%. Net income was $1,158,000 or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net income of $795,000 or $0.14 per diluted share. Net income for the fourth quarter included a reversal of the valuation allowance on our deferred tax asset of $892,000 in the current year and $552,000 last year.
