SPY Inc. Reports Net Sales of $9.1 million for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2015

SPY Inc. Reports Net Sales of $9.1 million for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2015

SPY Inc. (OTCBB: XSPY) today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015. First quarter sales were $9.1 million in 2015, a decrease of 0.7% or $0.1 million less than in the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in our net sales was primarily driven by lower sales of our sunglasses, partially offset by higher sales in our goggles and prescription frame product lines. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 54.8% for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to 52.0% for the same period in 2014. “I am quite happy with our results this first quarter, with only a slight dip in our sales trend despite the continued contraction of the action sports retail sector and the detrimental shift in global exchange rates,” said Michael Marckx, SPY president and CEO. “In fact, excluding those areas impacted by the very negative exchange rate changes, our business would have once again enjoyed substantial growth in the first quarter. Despite these challenges we achieved an improved operating profit margin driven by stronger gross margins, which were made possible by the success of our newer premium products across all categories. We are very excited about the increases...
