Consolidated sales for the quarter ended April 30, 2014, were $10.6 million, compared to $10.9 million in the prior year, a decrease of $0.3 million or 2.8%. The decrease in sales was largely related to reductions in demand in the automotive market, offset by an increase in demand in the capital equipment market. Consolidated sales for the nine months ended April 30, 2014 were $28.3 million, compared to $32.1 million in the prior year, a decrease of $3.8 million, or 11.8%.

Gross profit for the quarter ended April 30, 2014, was $1.6 million, or 15.1% of sales, compared to a gross profit of $1.7 million, or 15.6% of sales, in the prior year. The decrease in gross profit relates to increases in fixed costs associated with our manufacturing facility as demand in the automotive market continues to be low, offset by improved overhead absorption from increase in sales from the capital equipment market. Gross profit for the nine months ended April 30, 2014 was $4.3 million, or 15.2% of sales, compared to a gross profit of $5.1 million in the prior year, or 15.9% of sales in the prior year.

Selling and administrative expenses for the quarter ended April 30, 2014 were $ 1.1 million, or 10.4% of sales, compared to $1.2 million, or 11.0% sales, in the prior year. The decrease in SG&A relates to decreases in costs such as accounts receivable insurance and sales commission as our sales volumes decreased. Selling and administrative expenses for the nine months ended April 30, 2014 were $3.4 million, or 11.8% of sales, compared to $3.5 million in the prior year, or 10.9% of sales.

Net income for the quarter ended April 30, 2014 was $0.2 million or $0.02 per share, compared to net income of $0.2 million, or $0.03 per share in the prior year. During the quarter, amortization increased by $200 ($0.03 per share) as a result of a change in accounting estimate. Net income for the nine months ended April 30, 2014 was $0.2 million or $0.04 per share, compared to net income of $1.2 million or $0.18 per share in the prior year.

"We are pleased that Reko's third quarter results showed improvement over prior quarters," stated Diane Reko, chief executive officer. "Income from operations improved significantly, increasing 56% over quarter two results, primarily due to higher demand in the capital equipment market. We are beginning to see signs of improvement in our automotive market and expect this to positively impact future quarters."
