AERT Announces 2013 Year End Results

Stocks in this article: AERT

SPRINGDALE, Ark., March 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:AERT) announced today that net sales for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $68.8 million, down from $74.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $11.2 million, down $0.3 million from $11.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The July 17, 2013 fire at the Springdale extrusion facility severely impacted production and thus sales. MoistureShield ® sales in the fourth quarter of last year were down from 2012 due to less aggressive incentives under the 2013 Winter Buy program versus the 2012 program. Sales of the ChoiceDek ® product line were essentially flat, year over year.

AERT's net loss for 2013 was $1.5 million, or $0.02 per share, as compared to the 2012 net loss of $2.0 million.

Commenting on the results, Tim Morrison, CEO of AERT noted, "The fire and its impact on our team, production, and sales demanded a majority of our team's time, effort, and energy. We remain focused on the safe, efficient operation of our plant. Furthermore, we are excited about the release our new MoistureShield ® Pro product."

The Company released its fourth quarter earnings and 2013 Form 10-K on Thursday, March 6, 2014 and will host a conference call and webcast on Friday, March 7, 2014, beginning at 11:30 am (EST), 10:30 am (CST) to discuss the results.
