Allied Healthcare Reports Strong Fourth Quarter, Flat Net Income for Fiscal 2007 vs. 2006

- Company improves margins to offset higher material prices.

- Cash position increases by $1 million in the year.

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allied Healthcare Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: AHPI) reported that its net income increased 38 percent to $869,000, or 11 cents per share, during its fourth quarter ending June 30, 2007, versus $629,000, or 8 cents per share, for the fourth quarter last year.

Despite its stronger fourth quarter, Allied experienced flat net income of $1,641,600, or 21 cents per share, compared to $1,648,600, or 21 cents per share, for the prior fiscal year.

Fourth quarter sales decreased by about 3 percent, or $417,000, compared to the last quarter of the prior year. However, lower costs and expenses more than offset the sales decline, producing a solid increase in net income despite income tax expenses for the fourth quarter of 2007 that were $606,000 higher than for the fourth quarter of 2006. The 2006 fourth quarter benefited from a settlement and resolution of state tax contingencies.

For fiscal year 2007, Allied sales declined about $1.04 million, or 2 percent, compared to 2006. Lower costs for 2007 offset the decline.

Higher prices for raw materials such as copper, brass and zinc increased costs about 5.4 percent in fiscal 2006. Despite competitive pricing pressures, Allied was able to selectively increase prices during 2007. These increases, combined with programs to cut costs, resulted in improved margins for Allied.

"We are far from satisfied with flat results for 2007," said Earl Refsland, president and chief executive officer. Refsland said the company would continue to hold the line on costs in 2008 and work to increase domestic and international sales with new products.

A weaker U.S. dollar helped boost international orders for Allied by almost 9 percent over 2006, and Refsland said that he expects this positive effect to continue to help the company in 2008.

Despite increases in inventory and capital expenditures in 2007, the company increased its cash balance by about $1 million, Refsland said.

Allied Healthcare Products, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of respiratory care products, medical gas equipment and emergency medical products used in a wide range of hospital and alternate care settings.
