AERT Announces 2nd Quarter 2013 Results

SPRINGDALE, Ark., Aug. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:AERT), a leading plastic recycler and manufacturer of green building products announced today that sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, were $24.1 million, up $0.6 million from the second quarter of 2012, reflecting improved economic conditions.

Gross Margin for the second quarter of this year, at 25.3%, was up one percentage point from the second quarter of 2012 as manufacturing efficiencies were achieved and some raw material costs reduced.

Selling and administration costs for the quarter were down $0.4 million from the same quarter last year due primarily to reductions in payroll, advertising, and professional fees.

The second quarter's operating income of $3.1 million was a $0.8 million improvement from the three months ended June 30, 2012 while net income, at $2.0 million, was also up $0.8 million from last year.

Tim Morrison, AERT's President, said, "We continue to focus on cost control, manufacturing efficiencies, and serving our customers, while developing new products to help us continue our growth."

AERT will host their second quarter conference call and webcast on Thursday, August 8, 2013, commencing at 2:00 pm (EDT)/1:00 pm (CDT) to discuss the results. Listeners may participate in a question and answer session toward the end of the webcast by calling 877-561-2747. To listen via internet visit http://aert.com/ir/webcasts.aspx .
