KENOSHA, WI--(Marketwired - Jul 3, 2013) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (
Michael Michie, President and CEO, commented: "We would have significantly exceeded our fourth quarter 2012 revenue. We had a short delay in receiving key raw ingredients needed to complete certain orders. However, we're beginning our new fiscal year with unshipped orders close to 30 percent of last year's fiscal first quarter sales."
Sales for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 are expected to nearly double compared with three years ago, reflecting increased product visibility and new business driven by strong investment in trade advertising and promotion, said Michie. The company believes that with a reduction of marketing costs for the next fiscal year, and even modest organic growth, that it will be able to generate an operating profit for the full year.
"Our fiscal 2013 sales reflected accelerating and balanced revenue contributions from both our private label cleaning and personal care products, and our branded ecoone® pool and spa water treatment products," noted Michie. "We continue to have very positive reception from key retailers and distributors for our non-toxic, environmentally friendly line of products. As we enter our new fiscal year, we're very encouraged with the company's greatly strengthened balance sheet, improved cash position and reduced debt. We have an excellent facility, a fined-tuned manufacturing process, increasing margins, and capacity to accommodate the same type of double-digit sales growth we've experienced during the past several years."
