    SIFCO Industries, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SIF) today announced financial results for its first quarter fiscal year 2015, which ended December 31, 2014.

    First Quarter
    • Net sales from continuing operations in first quarter fiscal 2015 decreased 24.7% to $20.1 million, compared to $26.7 million in first quarter fiscal 2014.
    • Loss from continuing operations before income tax provision in first quarter fiscal 2015 was $1.9 million compared with income of $1.6 million in first quarter fiscal 2014.
    • Loss from income from continuing operations for first quarter fiscal 2015 was $1.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with income of $1.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in first quarter fiscal 2014.

    CEO Michael S. Lipscomb stated, "The Company is off to a slow start for the year, having come off of a strong fourth quarter. In addition to poor sales performance, the Company also absorbed costs associated with enterprise-wide initiatives, including our ERP implementation and SOX compliance programs. These added expenses impacted the bottom line, but are necessary endeavors to build a platform for the future. Our target markets, aerospace and energy, have fared well overall, and we continue to have a positive outlook for the growth potential of these markets.”
