OurPet's Company Reports Results for 2012 Second Quarter

FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OurPet's Company (OTC BB: OPCO) (www.ourpets.com), a leading proprietary pet supply company, today reported second quarter revenue of $4,747,049 for the three months ended June 30, 2012.   Net Income for the same period was $8,322.

Dr. Steven Tsengas, Chairman and CEO, commented, "While second quarter's net revenues decreased approximately 8.4% from the same period a year ago, we benefited from a large one time promotional sale during the second quarter of 2011 that did not occur this year. We are encouraged by the fact that our core product sales are actually up by approximately 12.5% with Cosmic Catnip™ products sales almost doubling over the same quarter a year ago and our SmartScoop® automatic litter box sales up over 55% from the same period a year ago. Our customer base has also broadened from a year ago as we continue further penetration into food, mass and drug store chains." Dr. Tsengas continued, "We are obviously disappointed with our net income for this second quarter, which was impacted by the lower overall sales volume, lower gross profit margins from sales of slower moving inventory and the one-time costs of moving the Cosmic Pet operation from Hagerstown, Maryland to Mentor, Ohio along with relocation costs of key employees. John Silvestri, our new President/COO, has been effectively enhancing marketing/sales capabilities through reorganization of responsibilities and by making key personnel upgrades. Ms.  Gabriella DeSantis has joined OurPet's as Senior Director of Marketing. Ms. DeSantis earned her bachelor of science in Business Administration from Long Island University and her MBA in Marketing Management & Corporate Finance from Pace University in New York. Most recently, she was Marketing Director of United Pet Group, Inc., a leading global manufacturer and marketer of pet supplies."

Dr. Tsengas added, "We are acutely aware of the need to improve our gross profit margin particularly as product margin differences alone accounted for approximately 5% of the overall 7.7% decrease in gross profit margin.   Steps taken to improve our margins include increased prices of selected items as of July 1, re-engineering of certain products to reduce cost and consolidation of operating overhead costs. Simultaneously, while striving to improve short-term revenue and profitability, we continue making the investment in people, management systems, product development and facilities to enable OurPet's to grow to a $50 million company and beyond in the foreseeable future."

2012 Second Quarter Results

Net revenue decreased 8.4% to $4,747,049 for the 2012 second quarter compared to $5,179,580 for the same period a year ago. The revenue decrease of approximately $433,000 over the same period in 2011 came from a reduction in one time promotional sales of approximately $960,000 offset by an increase in core product sales of approximately $527,000.  Approximately $355,000 of the increase in core product sales came from increased sales of Cosmic Pet® products. International sales increased over 28% from the same quarter a year ago, led by sales to Brazil and Japan. 

Gross profit was $1,087,022 for the 2012 second quarter versus $1,584,231 for the same period in 2011. Of the approximate $497,000 decrease, approximately 87% was due to the revenue decrease with the balance due to increased operating expenses.  

Gross profit margin declined to 22.9% for the 2012 second quarter from 30.6% for the same period a year ago. The gross profit margin decrease of 7.7% was mainly due to lower gross profit margins on sales of slower moving inventory and poorer absorption of fixed operating expenses due to the lower sales volume.

Income from operations was $50,947 for the 2012 second quarter compared to $540,155 for the same period last year. Approximately 88% of the $489,208 decrease is due to the lower sales volume while increased operating expenses comprised most of the remaining difference. 

Income before taxes was $21,339 versus $503,716 for the same period in 2011, with the approximately $482,000 difference coming mainly from the combination of lower sales volume and higher cost of goods sold and higher operating expenses.

The Company recognized income tax expense of $13,017 for the 2012 second quarter compared to $181,587 expense for the same period a year ago.

Net income was $8,322 for the 2012 second quarter compared to $322,129 for the same quarter last year. Net income per share was $0.00 for the second quarter of 2012 compared to $0.02 for the same period a year ago.

2012 First Six Months Results

Net revenue decreased 0.3% to $9,943,395 for the first six months of 2012 compared to $9,974,764 for the same period a year ago. The revenue decrease of approximately $31,000 came primarily from a decrease in one time promotional sales of approximately $1,710,000, which was offset by increases in our core product sales of approximately $1,679,000. Approximately 48% ($801,000) of the core product sales increase came from increased sales of our Play-N-Squeak® products with another approximately 37%  ($633,000) of the sales increase coming from increased Cosmic Catnip™ brands sales. International sales increased approximately 47% due to significant increased sales to England, Japan and Brazil.

Gross profit was $2,402,035 for the first six months of 2012 compared to $2,929,304 for the same period in 2011. 82% of the approximately $527,000 decrease in gross profit was due primarily to the increase in cost of goods sold and freight out costs.  Gross profit margin declined to 24.2% for the first six months of 2012 from 29.4% for the same period a year ago, mainly due to lower margin sales and increased operating expenses as a percentage of total sales.  Most of the Company's expenses to move the Cosmic Pet operation from Hagerstown, Maryland to Mentor, Ohio were recognized in the first half of 2012.

Income from operations was $207,766 for the first six months of 2012 compared to income from operations of $950,257 for the same period last year. The approximately $742,000 decrease was primarily due to the decrease in revenues of $31,000 an increase in Cost of Goods sold of approximately $496,000 and increases in Selling, General, and Administrative expenses of approximately $215,000.

Income before taxes was $133,022 versus income before taxes of $867,409 for the same period in 2011. The Company recognized income tax expense of $42,836 for the first six months of 2012 compared to $309,025 expense for the same period a year ago.

Net income was $90,186 for the first six months of 2012 compared to $558,384 for the same period last year. Net income per share was $0.00 for the first six months of 2012 compared to $0.03 for the first six months of 2011.
