FISCAL YEAR 2017 REVENUES AND EARNINGS FOR GREYSTONE LOGISTICS, INC.
Tulsa, OK—08/29/17—(OTCQB:GLGI). Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reports record sales and income for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2017.
Sales for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2017 were $40,044,110 compared to $26,340,405 in prior year for an increase of $13,703,705, a 52% increase. Greystone’s sales to its major customers in fiscal year 2017 were 71% of total sales compared to 56% in the prior year. Greystone’s net income was $2,246,908 in fiscal year 2017 compared to $836,134 in fiscal year 2016. Greystone recorded net income available to common stockholders for fiscal year 2017 of $1,660,921, or $.06 per share, compared to $271,426, or $0.01 per share, in fiscal year 2016.
Warren Kruger CEO stated, “Our board is pleased with the results of the hard work of the entire organization for our corporate year ended May 31, 2017. Much of the increase in sales in fiscal year 2017 is demand for the pallet being manufactured and sold to a lease pool customer that rents the pallets in the U.S. and Canada. Demand for the Intermediate Bulk Container pallet, 48x45 lipped pallet, export nestable pallet, and keg pallet showed strong added sales. During the year, two new machines were placed into production to accommodate growing demand for Greystone’s products.”
“This past year, management has been diligent in zeroing in on reducing costs while being very aggressive paying down principal on our debt. We closed a plastics recycling facility in Sand Springs, OK, moving the equipment to Iowa for better equipment utilization, management oversight, and cost control. The company acquired two buildings with 52,000 square feet storage capacity for recycling equipment and pallets. We will continue to work hard for our shareholders and look forward to the opportunities and challenges in fiscal year 2018.”
“Going forward, our team will focus on automation that leverages our ability to consistently produce quality pallets while providing our employees additional tools to do their jobs. Another new machine was recently delivered with an additional machine on order. These machines are projected to be in production in September 2017 and January 2018. We anticipate steady growth in top line sales during fiscal year 2018. Additionally, our staff continues to monitor machine and mold depreciation to ensure the correct allocation of capital is available to maintain top production levels and maximize efficiencies.”
