Highlights - Third quarter fiscal 2008 revenue of $21.9 million versus $23.8 million
in the same quarter last year.
- On target to meet new FDA published GMP requirements for Dietary
Supplement Manufacturing Companies.
SAN MARCOS, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI") (Nasdaq: NAII), a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, today announced revenue of $21.9 million and a net loss of $446,000 or $0.06 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
Net sales of $21.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2008 declined $1.9 million from the same quarter last year. The decrease included a $2.5 million decline in our domestic private label contract manufacturing sales associated primarily with the continued softness in sales from one of our largest customers, partially offset by a $1.0 million increase in our international private label contract manufacturing business related to higher sales volumes of established products to existing markets. Our branded product sales declined $342,000 during the current quarter primarily related to our Dr. Cherry Pathway to Healing (R) product line.
Gross profit totaled $4.1 million or 18.6% as compared to $5.4 million or 22.7% during the prior year quarter. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of sales was primarily due to higher per unit private label manufacturing costs associated with lower production levels, increased product testing costs associated with new product offerings and system and process validation costs related to improving our existing processes and implementing newly required good manufacturing practices (GMPs).
For the fiscal 2008 third quarter we reported a net loss of $446,000, or $0.06 per share, on 7.0 million weighted-average shares outstanding. For the third quarter of fiscal 2007 we reported net income of $369,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, on 7.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding.
Cash flows from operating activities for the nine months ended March 31, 2008 were $1.7 million. As of March 31, 2008, NAI had cash and working capital of $3.8 million and $16.6 million, respectively, compared to $4.9 million and $16.2 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2007. As of March 31, 2008, we had $7.5 million available under our working capital line of credit.
President Randell Weaver stated, "Our third quarter results were negatively affected by the continued softness in business from one of our largest contract manufacturing clients and the slower than expected increase in sales volumes from our new customers. During the third quarter we also continued to experience decreased revenues from our branded products business compared to the year ago quarter primarily due to lower sales of the Dr. Cherry Pathway to Healing(R) product line. These decreases along with the increased testing, documentation and validation expenses associated with new product introductions and our ongoing GMP programs negatively impacted our operating income. As we enter the fourth quarter, we anticipate our contract manufacturing sales volume will improve as we expect to deliver initial shipments to one of our new customers and sales to one of our largest customers to trend towards historical sales levels experienced in the comparable prior year period."
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark LeDoux added, "Although the cost of compliance is significant, we believe our unwavering commitment to quality and our steadfast support of the FDA published GMPs makes us well positioned to meet the higher standards of the new law."
