OurPet’s Company Reports 2013 First Quarter Results


FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio – April 25, 2013—OurPet's Company (OTC BB: OPCO www.ourpets.com), a leading proprietary pet supply company, today reported first quarter revenue of $5,040,645 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Net income for the same period was $223,601.


Dr. Steven Tsengas, Chairman and CEO, commented, “While we are pleased with a second straight quarter of reporting healthy profitability and improved margins, we are disappointed by the 3% decrease in net revenues from the same period a year ago.” Commented John Silvestri, President/COO, “Although our base business grew in a weak economy, less than hoped for special promotion results and delays in the launch of the new Food, Drug & Mass retail chain sales program negatively affected revenues. We recently obtained the services of a leading marketing firm to expedite implementation and launch of the new FD&M sales program. Gross profit margin increased to about 29% from 26% as we continue to focus on more profitable sales and operating cost reductions.”


Dr. Tsengas continued, “We are very excited with our new product development pipeline. Over the next several quarters, we will begin introducing a number of products in our feeder, toys and feline waste management lines, from “on demand selective” feeders, to various new delivery systems for catnip to semi-automatic litter boxes. The initial interest in our “demand selective feeder” (www.petwonderbowl.com) has been very encouraging with sizable orders pending from several large pet specialty retailers with deliveries in the 2nd and 3rd Quarter. They will be marketed under the OurPet’s® brand for the Pet Specialty channel and the PetZone® brand for the FD&M channels. All things considered, we remain guardedly optimistic for the remainder of the year.”


2013 First Quarter Results


Total net revenue decreased 3.0% to $5,040,645 for the 2013 first quarter compared to $5,196,345 for the same period a year ago. Despite the decrease in total sales, sales excluding “close-out” customers actually improved over the same period by approximately $212,000. Further, sales to largest customer were up by approximately $118,000 resulting from our new “hybrid” bowls.


Gross profit on sales increased for the period as a result of achieving better margins and improving control over costs. Gross profit was $1,456,371 for the 2013 first quarter versus $1,370,960 for the same period in 2012. This increase of about $85,000 resulted primarily from fewer close-out sales and reduced payroll expenses. Gross profit margin increased to 28.9% for the first quarter from 26.4% for the same period a year ago.


Income from operations was $304,202 for the 2013 first quarter vs. $156,818 for the same period a year ago. This increase was primarily the result of the increase in gross profit on sales and a decrease in promotional and show related expenses.




Income before taxes was $304,740 versus $111,682 for the same period in 2012. OurPet’s incurred an income tax expense of $81,139 for the 2013 first quarter compared to $29,818 for the same period a year ago.


Net income was $223,601 for the 2013 first quarter compared to $81,864 for the same quarter last year. Earnings per share were $0.01 for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $0.00 for the same period a year ago.
