Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLFD):
Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLFD) , the specialist in fiber management solutions for Fiber to the Premises (FTTp) deployments, today announced results for the second fiscal quarter of 2010 which ended March 31, 2010. Revenue for the quarter was $4,725,000 in comparison to $5,233,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, a decrease of 10%. Gross profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $1,733,000 in comparison to $1,818,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2009, a decrease of 4.7%. The Company reported a net loss of $108,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2010, or $.01 per share, compared to income of $131,000, or $.01 per share, for the second fiscal quarter of 2009. Revenue in the broadband and commercial data networks market was $3.9 million for second quarter of fiscal 2010, down from $4.4 million in the previous year’s second quarter. The revenue decrease was primarily associated with decreased orders from a single distributor in the Eastern region of the U.S. Revenue from that distributor accounted for 25% of total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 in comparison to 46% in the same period of fiscal year 2009. Revenues outside of that distributor increased from $2.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 to $2.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 or 21%, representing a broader base of business for the Company. Revenue associated with contract manufacturing for OEMs outside of the telecommunications markets, principally cable assembles produced to customer design, improved modestly, as revenue to that market was $849,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 up from $830,000 in the second quarter for fiscal 2009. The company sees this stabilization of revenue as a positive early indication that the economic recovery is beginning in the general manufacturing sector.
