Jewett-Cameron Announces 3rd Quarter Financial Results




Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 totaled $16.7 million compared to sales of $14.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016. Income from operations was $2,023,238 compared to $1,504,952 for the third quarter ended May 31, 2016. Net income after other items and income taxes for the current quarter was $1,206,135, or $0.53 per share, compared to $908,730, or $0.37 per share, in the year-ago quarter.

For the nine months ended May 31, 2017, Jewett-Cameron reported sales of $36.6 million compared to sales of $37.6 million for the nine months ended May 31, 2016. Net income was $2,001,068, or $0.88 per share, compared to net income of $1,572,935, or $0.64 per share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2016.

“Our investments in eCommerce and expanding our international sales have started to be reflected in this quarter’s revenues and margins,” said CEO Charlie Hopewell. “We are continuing our efforts to grow our business, including increased utilization of our recent warehouse expansion and adding additional personnel to support our sales initiatives.”

As of May 31, 2017, the Company’s cash position was approximately $4.9 million, and there was no borrowing against its $3.0 million line of credit. The Company has historically utilized its cash position by implementing share repurchase programs as an effective method of enhancing shareholder value.

On May 23, 2017, the Company announced the Board of Directors approved a share repurchase plan to purchase for cancellation up to 225,000 common shares under Rule 10b5-1 of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Subsequent to the end of the 3rd quarter, the Company has repurchased for cancellation 40,660 common shares at a cost of $511,959, which is an average price of $12.59 per share.
