Allied Healthcare Reports First Quarter Loss

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Allied Healthcare Products, Inc., (NASDAQ: AHPI) reported a loss for the first quarter with sales that continue to be dampened by a restrained economy and uncertainties in U.S. healthcare markets about future national policy.

The net loss for the first quarter ending September 30 was about $411,000, or a negative 5 cents per share, versus a loss of about $145,000, or a negative 2 cents per share, for the previous year. Sales for the current quarter declined from about $11.4 million to about $9.3 million, or about 18.4 percent, from the previous year.

International orders increased strongly from the previous year, from about $2.4 million to about $2.7 million, or about 12.5 percent. However, about one-fourth of the order volume was not ordered for immediate shipment during the first quarter.

Allied also saw growth in sales from the introduction of its new CO2 absorbent Litholyme® product.  Sales for CO2 absorbents increased by 29 percent over the previous year sales. 

"We expect to see continued growth in Litholyme® sales throughout this fiscal year," said Earl Refsland, Allied Healthcare Products president and chief executive officer.
