    Industry Comments

    "As I noted on the last call, our markets remained mixed during the fourth quarter and our Galvanizing and Energy businesses were impacted by severe weather conditions resulting in delays. Within the Energy segment, WSI was impacted by the refinery strikes that slightly reduced the amount of work completed during available turnarounds. We are seeing improvements in our quoting activity within our Energy business segment, resulting in improved backlog and we anticipate further improvements in our core markets during fiscal 2016. Although we are seeing a slight impact on a couple of our businesses due to lower oil prices and reduced rig count, we continue to see a number of opportunities for growth in most of our businesses".

    Jewett-Cameron Announces 2nd Quarter Financial Results
    PR Newswire Jewett-Cameron Trading Company Ltd.

    
    NORTH PLAINS, Ore., April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewett-Cameron Trading Company Ltd. (JCTCF) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six month periods of fiscal 2015 ended February 28, 2015.

    Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $9.5 million compared to sales of $9.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Income from operations was $466,704 compared to income of $408,818 for the quarter ended February 28, 2014. Net income was $283,560, or $0.11 per share, compared to net income of $237,398, or $0.08 per share, in the year-ago quarter.

    For the six months ended February 28, 2015, sales totaled $17.5 million compared to sales of $17.7 million for the six months ended February 28, 2014. Net income was $611,347, or $0.23 per share, compared to net income of $569,977, or $0.18 per share, in the first six months of fiscal 2014.

    "During the second quarter, we experienced delays in receiving certain products from our suppliers due to the West Coast port slowdowns", said CEO Don Boone. "These delays resulted in higher freight costs and, combined with the prolonged winter weather across much of the country, delayed many shipments to our customers."

    These delays also resulted in higher inventory levels and a lower cash balance at the end of the period. As of February 28, 2015, the Company's cash position was $12 thousand, and there was $875 thousand borrowed against its $1.0 million line of credit. Subsequent to the end of the period, the Company increased the size of its line of credit to $3.0 million.

    On February 17, 2015, the Company implemented a new share repurchase plan to purchase for cancellation up to 300,000 common shares under Rule 10b5-1 of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934. This amount represents approximately 11.6% of the 2,585,661 common shares outstanding.
