Goodfellow Reports Its Results for the Third Quarter Ended May 31, 201115:12 EDT Wednesday, June 22, 2011DELSON, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 22, 2011) - Goodfellow Inc. (TSX:GDL) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended May 31, 2011. Net income from operations were $1.2 million or $0.15 per share compared to a net income of $3.8 million or $0.45 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $127.5 million compared to $140.0 million for the same period a year ago. Cash flow from operations (excluding non-cash working capital) for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 decreased to $1.8 million from $3.2 million last year. Sales in Canada decreased 9% compared to the same period last year. This was mainly due to lower housing starts and slower demand from the retailers due to bad weather conditions throughout the third quarter. Consequently, flooring sales were affected by the reduced demand in the retail industry and commodity plywood sales decreased due to the slower new housing market. Sales in the US decreased 31% due to declining housing starts in the Northeast US combined with the economic uncertainty. Export sales increased 39% compared to last year due mainly to strong hardwood lumber sales in China and the Middle East. Selling, General and Administrative expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 increased slightly at $21.1 million compared to $21.0 million for the corresponding period a year ago. The increase is due to higher direct labour due to the growth in value-added production items during the 3rd quarter and higher energy costs due to the fuel price increase effect of our distribution and production equipment. For the nine months ended May 31, 2011, the Company reported net income from operations of $0.5 million or $0.06 per share compared to a net income of $7.8 million or $0.91 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales were $331.8 million compared to $357.1 million for the same period a year ago. Cash flow from operations (excluding non-cash working capital) decreased to $1.9 million from $8.2 million for the same period last year."The 3rd quarter results reflect the sluggish business conditions across the country not helped by the very poor weather and the election period." said Richard Goodfellow, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We remain positive about our 4th quarter prospects while keeping a close eye on our costs".Goodfellow Inc. is one of Canada's largest independent re-manufacturers and distributors of lumber and hardwood flooring products.
