BUFFALO, N.Y., May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOD-PAC CORP. (Nasdaq:MPAC) (the "Company"), a high value-added, on-demand print services firm that designs and manufactures custom and stock folding cartons, today announced financial results for its first quarter of 2013 ended March 30, 2013.

Product Line Sales Review: Custom Folding Carton Growth Offsets Lower Stock Packaging and Personalized Print Sales

  • Sales of custom folding cartons increased $0.8 million, or 7.6%, to $11.2 million from $10.4 million in the first quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to market share gains by capturing new product lines from several existing customers.  
  • Stock packaging sales were $2.6 million during the three months of 2013, a slight decrease from $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2012.  
  • First quarter personalized print sales were $0.6 million consistent with the prior-year period. 

David B. Lupp, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Our focus and sales efforts have been directed towards our custom folding cartons business, specifically for the private label segment, and we believe our improved results are a direct reflection of the successful execution of this strategy. The growth in this business line combined with cost containment and increased efficiency has allowed us to achieve greater operational leverage."
