UFP Technologies Announces Q1 Results

UFP Technologies Announces Q1 Results

GEORGETOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- UFP Technologies, Inc. (NAS: UFPT) , a manufacturer of packaging and component products, today reported net income of $2.0 million or $0.29 per diluted common share outstanding for its first quarter ended March 31, 2013, 13.6% less than net income of $2.3 million or $0.33 per diluted common share outstanding for the same period in 2012. Sales for the first quarter of 2013 were $33.7 million or 5.5% greater than 2012 first quarter sales of $32.0 million.

"Our first quarter got off to a slow start, as reduced demand for our military products and the continued phase-out of a large automotive program affected sales revenue," said R. Jeffrey Bailly, Chairman & CEO. "In each case the revenue impact was more than $1 million compared with last year's first quarter. The quarter also included approximately $150,000 in one-time costs related to the transfer of business from our closed Ventura, California plant to our El Paso, Texas location, and to the integration of our Packaging Alternatives Corporation acquisition."

"We are very pleased with the PAC acquisition and the contribution that organization is already making to our company," Bailly continued. "Without PAC revenues, our sales would have been down about 3% from the prior year. With PAC's contribution, sales were up 5.5%."

Looking forward, Bailly said the company believes business will pick up toward the end of Q2 as new programs now in development are launched. "We remain bullish about our future," Bailly added. "We have made a series of important strategic investments in equipment, systems, and personnel, and continue to migrate our Sales & Marketing and Engineering groups into market-focused teams. All these initiatives are aimed at increasing the value we bring to our customers and positioning UFP Technologies for long-term profitable growth."
