ROYAL OAK, Mich., July 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bonal International, Inc. (OTC: BONL) today announced first quarter ending June 30, 2009 unaudited results. Bonal's sales decreased 42 percent from $601,951 to $351,827. "Because of the U.S. economy, contraction was anticipated and the losses were minimized by cost control measures implemented in late fiscal year 2009," said A. George Hebel, III, chairman and president of Bonal International.
Bonal Technologies' rental income increased marginally, demonstrating that small businesses are still interested in Bonal's technology but hesitant about making capital equipment purchases because of nervousness about the US economy. In the first quarter, Bonal continued its international growth with first time sales in Croatia and India. Sales in Michigan accounted for 20 percent of sales. Bonal also sold Black Magic(R) for distortion control to the University of Minnesota to be used on high precision prototype parts.
