Tuesday, September 18, 2012 12:53 PM
Schiff Nutrition International, Inc., (NYSE: SHF), announced results for the fiscal 2013 first quarter ended August 31, 2012. “We are pleased to report another strong quarter for Schiff Nutrition,” stated Tarang Amin, president and chief executive officer. “Net sales increased 46% and Adjusted EBITDA increased 81% versus year ago, reflecting progress executing our growth strategy to build leading brands in four key conditions. Our brand building, innovation, and customer initiatives continue to drive MegaRed® in heart health, Move Free® in joint care, Airborne® in immune support, and Digestive Advantage® in probiotics. Gross margin improvement was driven by branded growth and strong operational execution including lean manufacturing and sourcing initiatives. Given our first quarter performance and expectations for the balance of the year, we are taking up our fiscal 2013 guidance.” SHF - Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results
  • Net sales were $85.1 million, compared to $58.2 million for the same period in fiscal 2012. Branded sales increased 49.3% to $74.8 million and reflect the contribution of the Airborne acquisition completed on March 30, 2012, compared to $50.1 million in fiscal 2012.
  • Gross profit margin was 47.1% for the fiscal 2013 first quarter.
