Cycle Country 2Q Revenue Drops 47.8%
Cycle Country Accessories Corporation, Milford, Iowa, says revenue for its second quarter ended March 31, 2005, was $2,809,226, a decrease of 47.8% from revenue of $5,381,420 for the same period last year. The company says sales to U.S. distributors and OEMs dropped 52.7% from similar sales posted for the second quarter of 2004. Net earnings were not released.
Net income for the second quarter was $14,305 compared to $465,013 for the same period last year. For the six month period that ended March 31, 2005, net income was $546,406, down from $869,123 for the same period last year.
“Results for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 did not equal the results for the second quarter of fiscal 2004, but current second quarter results did meet our baseline growth projections,” said Ron Hickman, President and CEO of Cycle Country Accessories Corporation.
Cycle Country projects the completed acquisition of their largest supplier, Simonsen Iron Works of Spencer, Iowa, will provide additional profits, and Hickman said he is confident in earlier basic net income projections of 40 cents per share for fiscal year 2005.
Simonsen's services include laser and plasma cutting, turret punching, tube bending, CNC machining, powder coating and more.
Shares of Cycle Country plummeted $1.10, or 22.5%, to $3.80 on Monday after the company reported its results.
