- Net sales for the quarter of $136,805, an increase of 143% over the same period in 2005. Net sales for the 9 month period ending March 31, 2006 of 267,387, an increase of 186% over the same period in 2005.
- Gross profits for the quarter increased 207% to $79,199 vs $25,732 for the same period in 2005. Gross profits for the 9 month period ending March 31, 2006 increased 217% to $149,781 versus $47,278 for the same period in 2005.
- During the three months ending March 31, 2006, gross profits (net sales minus cost of goods sold) paid for approximately 41.5% of the company's selling and administrative expenses, up substantially from 23.5% for the same period the previous fiscal year. For the nine months ending March 31, 2006, gross profits paid for approximately 30% of the company's selling and administrative expenses, up 100% from 15% for the same period the previous fiscal year.
- For the three months ending March 31, 2006, selling and general administrative expenses were $188,229 up 58% from $109,660 for the three months ending March 31, 2005. For the nine months ending March 31, 2006, selling and general administrative expenses were $490,638 up 63% from $312,787 from the nine months ending March 31, 2005.
- While the increase in expenses is substantially less than the increase in revenues, a significant portion of expenses reflect the write-off of what management now believes to be an noncollectable debt owed to the company from an invoice generated by former management. For the three months ending March 31, 2006 the company wrote off the final $23,571 against this bad debt and, in the nine months ending March 31, 2006 the company wrote off a total of $59,551. The invoice is now fully written off and no further write downs from this invoice will reflect in future financial results.
- For the nine months ending March 31, 2006 the company spent $36,041 in advertising and promotional costs over $15,953 for the nine months ending March 31, 2005, a 126% increase.
Pacific Sands CEO Michael Wynhoff commented, "These results are very exciting, and reaffirm that our strategy of responsible reinvestment for growth is a good one for the company and its investors. Our 'winning streak' of period-over-period growth remains unbroken since our management team took over the company in 2004. We are continuing to drive the company towards profitability."
Pacific Sands CFO Michael Michie further commented, "Our ability to consistently and repeatedly deliver these improved results clearly indicates that our EcoOne(TM) product families are gaining traction and momentum in the marketplace. These results are particularly gratifying in that they do not reflect any revenue from one of our newest initiatives, the Hawkeye Manufacturing agreement."
