Omnitek Engineering Corp. Reports First Quarter Results

VISTA, Calif., May 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnitek Engineering Corp. (OTCQB:OMTK) today reported results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2015 -- reflecting increased sales, a sharply reduced net loss and an order backlog.

Net revenues for the first quarter increased 41 percent to $450,700 compared with $320,374 a year earlier. For the same period, the company reported a net loss of $237,162, or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $417,805, or $0.02 per share, a year ago.

Gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $199,055 compared with $125,323 a year ago. Gross profit for the three-month period as a percentage of sales was 44 percent compared with 39 percent in the same period a year ago, reflecting volume and overhead absorption.

"The company's sales performance for the quarter is encouraging, and we remain confident that the long-awaited domestic market will gain further momentum in the quarters ahead, supported by post-first quarter EPA-approval of the Caterpillar C15 engine and three additional EPA-approved engines in our portfolio. Our business in foreign markets, particularly in Mexico and Europe, continues to gain momentum, which contributed to an expanding order backlog at March 31 of more than $500,000, as previously highlighted in our year-end financial release issued on that date," said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corp.

He noted Omnitek's EPA-approved technology provides a viable alternative to new engine replacement for fleet operators at a significantly lower cost. With more than eight million heavy-duty trucks on the road in the United States and a payback period for conversions of approximately one year, Omnitek is well-positioned to capitalize on the domestic abundance of natural gas and its benefits.

He added that local fleet operators with trucks that return to the same depot every night are uniquely positioned to build on-site refueling stations and purchase fuel significantly below the cost charged by retail fuel stations. "This dynamic remains a compelling consideration for fleet managers, even with oil price volatility," Funk said

At March 31, 2015, the company's total current assets were $2,899,451 and total current liabilities were $628,951 -- resulting in positive working capital of $2,270,050 and a current ratio of 4.61 to 1.
