RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lakeland Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: LAKE), a leading global manufacturer of industrial protective clothing for industry, municipalities, healthcare and to first responders on the federal, state and local levels, today announced select preliminary results for its fiscal 2015 third quarter ended October 31, 2014. The Company's preliminary sales only in the United States and Canada for the fiscal 2015 third quarter are expected to be between $14.5 million and $14.7 million, or an increase of approximately 15% as compared with sales of $12.5 million for the same regions in the fiscal third quarter of the prior year. The select preliminary sales increase primarily reflects the growth being experienced by Lakeland with its traditional customers.
The sales figures announced today do not include the balance of the Company's international operations, which generally take longer to consolidate for reporting purposes. Further and as previously disclosed, Lakeland has experienced a significant increase in order activity from demand relating to the Ebola crisis. The Company started shipping orders relating to this demand only in October, which is the last month of its fiscal 2015 third quarter reporting period. The main impact from Ebola-related orders will not begin to be realized until the Company's fiscal 2015 fourth quarter ended January 31, 2015. Full third quarter financial results will be announced on December 10, 2014. Details for the fiscal 2015 third quarter financial results conference call will be announced.
