 Jewett-Cameron Announces Fiscal 2015 Financial Results
   Friday, November 06, 2015 4:20:00 PM ET

Jewett-Cameron Trading Company Ltd. (JCTCF ) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended August 31, 2015.

For the fiscal year ended August 31, 2015 Jewett-Cameron reported net income of $1,773,971, or $0.69 per share, on sales of $42.24 million, compared to net income of $1,858,453, or $0.63 per diluted share, on sales of $42.34 million, reported for fiscal 2014.

Sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $11.5 million compared to sales of $9.3 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Net income was $701,524, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to net income of $352,147, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

"The extended winter weather across much of the US in 2015 slowed the buying of lawn and garden products and adversely affected our results. The West Coast port slowdowns also delayed the delivery of our products from manufacturers and resulted in sales order delays and higher freight costs" said CEO Don Boone. "However, we launched several new products beginning in the 3rd quarter which were well received by the marketplace, particularly by our established customer base".

As of August 31, 2015, the Company’s cash position was $4.4 million, and currently there is no borrowing against its $3.0 million line of credit. During fiscal 2015, the Company repurchased and cancelled a total of 227,798 common shares at a total cost of $2,448,542, which represents an average price of $10.75. The Company’s most recent share repurchase plan was terminated by the Board of Directors on July 17, 2015. The Board of Directors will consider implementing new share repurchase plans in the future as an effective use of the Company’s cash position.
