Astro-Med swings to 1Q ?profit as sales jump 16%

Posted 5/31/10

WEST WARWICK – Astro-Med Inc. swung to a profit in its fiscal first quarter as sales of its specialty electronics rose 16 percent.

Astro-Med posted a profit of $430,000, or 6 cents a share, in the three months ended May 1, compared with a net loss of $231,000, or 3 cents a share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 16.4 percent to $17.1 million.

“The quarter was driven by consumables sales, especially those of our QuickLabel Systems brand,” Astro-Med Chairman and CEO Albert W. Ondis said in a news release. “Now that orders for our higher-profit printers, data recorders, and neurological and sleep instruments are rising, we are increasingly confident about the balance of the year.”

Astro-Med’s cash on hand was roughly flat at $23.7 million compared with the same quarter a year earlier. The company has no debt. •
