Omega Flex, Inc. Announces 1st Quarter 2016 Earnings

EXTON, Pa., April 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omega Flex, Inc., (Nasdaq:OFLX) today reported its results of operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2016:

Three Months Ended March 31,
2016 2015
Net Sales $20,626,000 $20,973,000
Net Income attributable to Omega Flex, Inc. $2,643,000 $3,143,000
Earnings Per Share - Basic and Diluted $0.26 $0.31

Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, announced that the Company’s Net Sales for the first quarter of 2016 were $20,626,000, largely equivalent to the first quarter of 2015, which had Net Sales of $20,973,000. The flat level of sales was caused in part by customer purchases in the fourth quarter of 2015 to achieve higher annual rebate payouts, which drew in some sales from the first quarter of 2016. This was apparent during the latter half of the quarter which showed solid growth over the prior year.

The Company’s Net Income for the first three months of 2016 was $2,643,000 compared to $3,143,000 recognized during the same quarter last year, decreasing $500,000 or 15.9%. The Company experienced an increase in administrative expenses during the first quarter of 2016, mostly legal in nature, which contributed to the decrease in income, and this level of spending may continue into the second quarter.
