Marketwired

JAMAICA, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2013) - Janel World Trade, Ltd. (OTCQB: JLWT), a full-service global provider of integrated transportation logistics, announced today the financial results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2012.

First Quarter 2013 Results

For the three months ended December 31, 2012, Janel reported revenue of $21,865,771, a decrease of $1,483,364 or 6.4% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2011.

For the three months ended December 31, 2012 the Company reported a net loss of $(201,286) or $(0.01) per fully diluted share, compared to the prior year reported net loss of $(246,912), or $(0.01) per fully diluted share.

Review and Outlook
"We are disappointed with our results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012," said James N. Jannello, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer. "For the three months, we had an operating loss from continuing operations of $(163,919) compared to an operating loss from continuing operations of $(150,257) in the prior year. Revenue for the quarter was down when compared to last year mainly due to lower ocean and air shipping activity. Although we cannot quantify the effects, we believe that ocean shipping activity in the quarter was negatively impacted by Hurricane Sandy and the threatened port strikes by the International Longshoremen's Association on the entire East and Gulf Coast. We are focused on returning our continuing core operations to profitability."

Jannello concluded, "With the recent investments in our freezer and cold storage capabilities, we are seeing an expansion in our New Jersey warehouse business with our current customers as well as attracting new customers. Looking ahead, and in the very short term, we are working to raise additional capital in order to grow the transportation logistics segment to profitability."
