- International marketing strategy resulting in strong re-order activity
- Advancements in new product categories launched at National Hardware Show resulting in growing end-user demand
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Oct. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Companies, Inc. (OTC:CAPC) ("Capstone" or the "Company"), a designer of innovative LED lighting solutions, including power failure lighting, today provided an update on the recent success of its international marketing efforts and new product category introductions.
Stewart Wallach, Capstone's CEO, commented, "We are seeing significant re-order activity from the international markets where we placed a strategic focus over the last few years. Specifically, our customers and channel partners in Australia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and most recently the UK are reporting significant end-user demand for our latest product developments, driving nearly $1 million in additional international sales which mostly shipped during Q3."
He added, "Capstone has also made significant product advancements on the new product categories that we introduced during the National Hardware Show in May, which are being well received in the marketplace. In an effort to continue to build on this momentum, we are expanding on our consumer and retailer distribution and have new commitments from a major warehouse club retailer that are scheduled to hit shelves in February 2016.
"The immediate acceptance rates on our new products have exceeded our expectations, particularly in the warehouse club channels where the review process is expedient. These results are positive proof points of our strategy's effectiveness and we will continue to drive demand by carrying-out our strategy to develop new innovative product designs, while increasing the availability of our products across the globe through alliances and by deepening relationships with major multinational retailers."
As previously reported on October 6, 2015, Capstone expects to report strong results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2015. Third quarter gross margins expanded significantly over the prior-year period to over 25%, and net income is expected to approach approximately $1.0 million. Additionally, the Company entered the fourth quarter with a record backlog of over $7 million, driving expectations for strong fourth quarter year-over-year revenue growth and record revenue for the second half of 2015.
