Jewett-Cameron Announces 2nd Quarter Financial Results

NORTH PLAINS, Ore., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewett-Cameron Trading Company Ltd. (NASDAQ: JCTCF) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six month periods of fiscal 2014 ended February 28, 2014.

Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled $9.7 million compared to sales of $14.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Income from operations was $408,818 compared to income of $979,059 for the quarter ended February 28, 2013. Second quarter 2013 income included the one-time gain of $353,852 related to the sale of property. Net income after other items and income taxes for the current quarter was $237,398, or $0.08 per share, compared to net income of $790,631, or $0.25 per share, in the year-ago quarter.

For the six months ended February 28, 2014, Jewett-Cameron reported sales of $17.7 million compared to sales of $23.5 million for the six months ended February 28, 2013. Net income was $569,977, or $0.18 per share, compared to net income of $1,271,377, or $0.41 per share, in the first six months of fiscal 2013. The year ago period was positively affected by the one-time gain on the sale of property.

"The second quarter and six month results were negatively affected by a delay in our orders from our suppliers caused by manufacturing constraints around Chinese New Year," said CEO Don Boone. "Due to these constraints, shipments to our customers were delayed and also pushed back the rollout of several new products. We do not expect these constraints to continue in the remainder of fiscal 2014."

As of February 28, 2014, the Company's cash position was $5.8 million, and there was no borrowing against its $5.0 million line of credit. In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company repurchased and cancelled 58,180 common shares at a cost of $569,019, which represents an average price of $9.78 per share. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, the Company re-purchased and is in the process of cancelling a total of 255,313 additional shares of its common stock at a total cost of $2,486,571 at an average price of $9.74 per share. These purchases were pursuant to the Company's share re-purchase plan first announced on January 13, 2014 which has now been completed and terminated. Today the Company's Board of Directors authorized the implementation of a new share repurchase plan under Rule 10b-18. Under the new plan, the Company may purchase for cancellation up to 300,000 common shares, which represents approximately 10.6% of the 2,821,443 common shares currently outstanding. The Company has historically utilized its cash position by implementing share repurchase programs as an effective method of enhancing shareholder value.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
