Dynatronics' Acquisitions Boost Sales 80 Percent in Third Quarter
Date:5/14/2008

SALT LAKE CITY, May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dynatronics Corporation (Nasdaq: DYNT) today announced results for its third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2008.

Sales for the quarter increased 80 percent to $7,781,871, compared to $4,330,440 in the prior year period. For the nine months ended March 31, 2008, sales increased 90 percent to $24,534,934, compared to $12,897,679 in the prior year period. The increase in sales was due primarily to the acquisition of six of the company's top independent distributors on June 30, 2007, and July 2, 2007. Dynatronics now has 40 direct sales reps covering 30 states across the country in addition to its well-established domestic and international dealer network.

"In the face of major competitors' consolidation strategies in our industry, acquiring these distributors was essential to preserving our channels of distribution and allowing us to compete more effectively," stated Kelvyn H. Cullimore Jr., chairman and president of Dynatronics. "Though we met our sales objectives through the first six months after the acquisitions, the current quarter fell short of achieving our sales goals largely as a result of the recent slowdown in the economy and clinic expansions. Also, the final integration of these acquisitions has taken a quarter longer than expected. These factors, along with final integration costs incurred during the quarter, contributed to a larger third quarter loss than expected."

Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 was $628,775 ($.05 per share), compared to a net loss of $81,389 ($.01 per share) in the prior year period. For the nine months ended March 31, 2008, net loss totaled $1,679,770 ($.12 per share), compared to a net loss of $299,984 ($.03 per share) in the prior year period.

The company reports that assimilation of the six distributor operations is now substantially complete. Eight distribution facilities have been consolidated into three distribution warehouses. The consolidation of facilities has enabled reductions in labor and overhead expenses expected to save the company approximately $1.9 million annually.

"These expense reductions were put into place by the end of the fiscal third quarter and included over $100,000 in severance costs related to the labor reductions," reported Cullimore. "We believe that this reduction in expenses, together with our recently introduced products and the sales tools we plan to introduce in the next few months will help us reach our goal of returning to profitability. In addition, we are considering strategic partnerships to further enhance our competitive position in the market."

Dynatronics has scheduled a conference call for investors Wednesday, May 14, 2008, at 2:30 p.m. ET. Those wishing to participate should call 800-839-9416 and use passcode 9321818.

The company also noted the unexpected passing of Dr. E. Keith Hansen, a member of Dynatronics' board of directors, on Saturday, May 10, 2008. "We are saddened by this loss," said Cullimore. "Keith has been a director and supporter of Dynatronics since the company's inception. His insight and contribution to the development of the company were invaluable and he will be greatly missed." No immediate plans were announced for a replacement.
