SAN MARCOS, Calif., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI") (Nasdaq: NAII), a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, today announced it will be unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007 on a timely basis because it requires additional time to complete its annual goodwill impairment testing. NAI expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K no later than October 15, 2007.
While NAI is in the process of finalizing its annual goodwill impairment testing, it anticipates it will report revenue of $97.1 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007 compared to $99.6 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, a 2.5% decrease, and revenue of $24.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, a 29.8% decrease from the comparable quarter last year. NAI also anticipates that it will report significantly lower operating income, net income and net income per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 and for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007, as compared with its results for the comparable periods for fiscal 2006, due primarily to the decrease in revenue and, with respect to the fiscal year results, higher selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $2.3 million, or 14.1%, to $19.0 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007 from $16.6 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, and decreased $875,000, or 15.6%, to $4.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 from $5.6 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was due primarily to the inclusion of the results from NAI's acquisition of Real Health Laboratories, Inc. for a full year in fiscal 2007 as compared to a partial year in fiscal 2006. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 from the comparable quarter in the prior year was primarily due to reduced personnel expenses from the termination of certain sales and marketing personnel in June 2006. Additionally, NAI believes it will be required to recognize a non-cash, material goodwill impairment charge, which will have a negative effect on its results of operations but will not impact its cash flows or cash position. As NAI has not yet completed its annual goodwill impairment testing, it is unable to provide a reasonable estimate of the amount of such charge at this time.
President Randell Weaver said, "Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 was slightly higher than third quarter revenue though it was down compared to the year ago quarter because the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 included significant initial shipments of a single product for a new customer. Revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2008 is expected to exceed revenue in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 and is expected to be in line with revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2007. We expect to report working capital of $16.1 million at June 30, 2007 compared to $13.2 million at June 30, 2006. We also expect to report cash at June 30, 2007 of $4.9 million. As of June 30, 2007, there were no outstanding borrowings under our working capital line of credit. We expect to finalize our annual goodwill impairment testing no later than October 15, 2007 and issue a release of our final corporate earnings at that time."
