Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $(0.6) million, or $(0.09) on a per share basis, compared with a net loss of $(0.1) million, or $(0.02) on a per share basis, for the comparable period in 2013.

In February 2014, the ISA entered into an amendment with Fifth Third Bank to extend the maturity date of both the revolving credit facility and the term loan to July 31, 2015, temporarily reduces the interest rate on both loans, lowers the monthly principal payment on the term loan and increases the advance rate on inventory. These benefits enhance ISA’s near-term liquidity, which the Company is using to grow operations.

Cash Flow Highlights:

ISA concluded the first quarter with cash of $1.2 million, a $0.4 million reduction from the cash balance at the end of 2013. During the first quarter, the Company:
  • Generated $2.3 million of cash from operations
  • Used $0.1 million of cash for investing activities; and
  • Repaid $2.9 million of debt

“ISA like most businesses in the United States found the first two months of the first quarter very challenging due to weather conditions.” Sean Garber, President of ISA said, “The first quarter was a new beginning for ISA. There have been many challenging tasks that were dealt with head on in order to position the Company for profitability and new growth. We are seeing the results of these efforts through the reduction of costs by 35% compared to the increase in volume of 24%. Most importantly ISA was able to exceed the bank financial covenants for the first quarter. These results continue to be a direct correlation with the commitment, dedication and contributions from the entire ISA team.”
