BRENTWOOD, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Action Industries Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:MDCI), a leading supplier of medical and surgical disposable products, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2013, including net sales of $107.2 million and gross profit of $17.7 million or 16.5% of net sales. The Company generated net income of $0.3 million or $0.02 per diluted share and EBITDA, as adjusted of $4.5 million. The reported gross profit, net income and EBITDA, as adjusted results represent increases versus the comparable results for the same period of fiscal year 2013.

Paul D. Meringolo, Chief Executive Officer, said, "As in recent quarters, our cost savings initiatives, the elimination of unprofitable sales and a reduction in raw material costs continue to be the key drivers behind the profitability improvements we are reporting today. I am extremely pleased at our management team's ability to manage these improvements without compromising their focus on delivering exceptional service and value to our customers. I continue to be excited about the numerous obtainable profit improvement initiatives we have identified which should yield further near-term improvement in financial results and continue to enhance stockholder value."
