Leading Brands, Inc. Announces Q3 And YTD Results

The Company is extremely disappointed in this quarterly loss, following on 14 consecutive quarters of positive EBITDAS generating $11,000,000. Approximately $150,000 of this loss was occasioned by extraordinary items. Additionally, the Company could have – as in past years – reacted more quickly and decisively to its seasonal slowdown to mitigate the impact on profitability. Changes are in the process of being implemented to avoid a recurrence.

Gross profit margin for the quarter was 26.2%, down from 36.9% in the same quarter last year. This quarter's margin was directly impacted by extraordinary items, listing fees and poor promotional performance. In the past several years the Company has maintained gross profit margin in excess of 35%, as presently calculated.
