Results of Operations
The Company had a net income of $1,231,196, or $0.19 per share (basic and diluted), for the three months ended July 31, 2012 compared to net income of $168,236 or $0.03 per share (basic and diluted), for the three months ended July 31, 2011. The Company had net income of $2,439,293, or $0.38 per share basic and $0.37 per share diluted, for the nine months ended July 31, 2012 compared to net income of $2,397,265 or $0.44 per share (basic and diluted), for the nine months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in net income primarily reflects increased gross profit.
Net sales totaled $44,484,453 for the three months ended July 31, 2012, an increase of $8,719,587, or 24%, from $35,764,866 for the three months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in net sales primarily reflects increased sales volume compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2011 due to an increase in sales of green coffee, as well as an increase in private label and branded sales. Net sales totaled $138,171,695 for the nine months ended July 31, 2012, an increase of $39,433,719, or 40%, from $98,737,976 for the nine months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in net sales primarily reflects additional poundage sold in all key areas of the business.
Cost of sales for the three months ended July 31, 2012 was $40,606,840 or 91.3% of net sales, as compared to $33,670,406 or 94.2% of net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in cost of sales reflects the increase in net sales and the increased cost of green coffee. However, our cost of sales as a percentage of net sales decreased as a result of purchases of inventory at better pricing during the three month period. Cost of sales for the nine months ended July 31, 2012 was $128,472,249 or 93% of net sales, as compared to $89,963,400 or 91.1% of net sales for the nine months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in cost of sales, and cost of sales as a percentage of revenue, reflects the increase in net sales and the increased cost of green coffee due to additional poundage sold and lower returns from our hedging operations.
Total operating expenses increased by $104,648, or 6%, to $1,858,672 for the three months ended July 31, 2012 as compared to operating expenses of $1,754,024 for the three months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in operating expenses was due to increases in selling and administrative expenses of $113,297 as result of increased freight costs, insurance and travel and payroll due to increased sales partially offset by a decrease in overhead, licenses and fees and officers' salaries. Total operating expenses increased by $350,022, or 6.7%, to $5,579,111 for the nine months ended July 31, 2012 as compared to operating expenses of $5,229,089 for the nine months ended July 31, 2011. The increase in operating expenses was due to increases in selling and administrative expense of $400,113 as a result of increased freight costs, insurance and payroll due to increased sales partially offset by a decrease in travel costs, professional service fees and officers' salaries of $50,091.
"We are pleased to report this quarter's results to our shareholder base as we overcame many obstacles to achieve strong results during the past ninety days. Despite substantially lower commodity prices, we were still able to increase our revenues by 24% over the same period from last year. Although coffee prices on average were lower by $1.00 per pound, we achieved growth in our sales in all key areas, including green coffee sales, private labels sales and branded sales, building upon our momentum from last quarter, while improving our gross margin by almost three percentage points as well," noted Andrew Gordon, our President and CEO.
"Our increase in earnings per share was also accomplished in spite of losses incurred by OPTCO. In the case of OPTCO, losses totaled almost $200,000 as we were forced to liquidate an oversupply of inventories into a weak commodity and buyer's market. We are hopeful that these temporary conditions at OPTCO will improve and have a positive impact on earnings in the fourth quarter," continued Mr. Gordon.
"Finally, while achieving greater sales growth, we controlled both our variable and fixed costs in the process. Our balance sheet is as strong as it has ever been over our forty plus years of existence and if and when commodity and macro conditions stabilize, we believe our revenues and earnings will reflect the benefits of a normalized business environment," stated Mr. Gordon.
The Company's previously announced quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per share will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on October 16, 2012. The dividend will be paid on October 29, 2012.
