DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Aug. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Companies, Inc. (OTC:CAPC) ("Capstone" or the "Company"), a designer of innovative LED lighting solutions including power failure lighting, today reported its financial results for the second quarter of 2015.
Stewart Wallach, Capstone's CEO, commented, "Second quarter results were in-line with our expectations, reflecting the strategic brand change from Capstone to Hoover® HOME LED, the lingering effects of the west coast port strike that was resolved earlier this year, and our focus on new product introductions. With those issues now behind us and a strong backlog, revenue will ramp up significantly in the third quarter 2015."
Second Quarter Review
Revenue was $0.3 million for the second quarter, down from the prior year's second quarter primarily due to the previously disclosed transition to the new Hoover® HOME LED branded product lines and the impact of the west coast port labor dispute.
Gross profit was $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2015. Gross profit margin as a percent of sales was 18.4%. Second quarter 2015 gross profit and margin included a cost accrual of approximately $35 thousand for allowances from a previous period, which was the driver of lower gross profit margin when compared with the prior-year period.
Operating expenses totaled $0.7 million, flat with the second quarter of 2014.
For the second quarter, the Company recorded a net loss of $0.7 million compared with a net loss of $0.4 million in 2014.
