SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynatronics Corporation (NASDAQ: DYNT) today announced results for its fiscal second quarter and six months ended December 31, 2011.
Sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, increased one percent to $8,275,430, compared to $8,199,347 for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. Sales for the six months ended December 31, 2011, also increased one percent to $16,272,232, compared to $16,118,635 for the six months ended December 31, 2010.
Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, was $46,334 ($.00 per common share), compared to net income of $67,839 ($.01 per common share) for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Net loss for the six-month period ended December 31, 2011, was $21,926 ($.00 per common share), compared to net income of $84,851 ($.01 per common share) for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
"With sales and gross profit margin both increasing, the $40,861 reduction in income before taxes for the current quarter can be accounted for by the $56,342 increase in R&D expense in the quarter, compared to the same quarter last year," said Kelvyn H. Cullimore Jr., chairman and president of Dynatronics. "As a result of our increased investment in R&D over the past two years, we expect to introduce a record number of new products this year, including several high-margin therapy devices as well as other specialty rehab equipment."
"Once the products are introduced," Cullimore continued, "R&D expenditures are expected to return to more traditional levels, triggering annual savings in the range of approximately $300,000 to $400,000. Most of the new products will be released in the first six months of calendar 2012 and we plan to make formal announcements as each of our new products and product lines are introduced to the market."
In March 2011, Dynatronics began the process of introducing its own branded products to group purchasing organization (GPO) member facilities across the country. During fiscal year 2011, Dynatronics announced the signing of contracts with four GPOs: Premier, Inc., Amerinet, Inc., FirstChoice Cooperative and Champs Group Purchasing. These contracts became effective in March and June 2011. The company is in discussion with two other GPOs that contemplate issuing new contracts during 2012.
"The process of converting GPO members to the Dynatronics' brand of product is taking longer than management originally anticipated," stated Larry K. Beardall, executive vice president of sales and marketing. "However, it is expected to gain momentum over the next several quarters and management remains optimistic about the potential of increasing business with these large national accounts and GPOs."
"We are firmly committed to investing in the future through the development of several new products and new sales opportunities with GPOs and national accounts," added Cullimore. "We believe this strategy will begin to show positive outcomes in upcoming quarters."
Dynatronics has scheduled a conference call for investors on Tuesday, February 14, 2012, at 1:30 p.m. ET. Those wishing to participate should call (800) 925-9065.
