WSI Industries Reports 19% Increase in Sales in Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Business Wire MINNEAPOLIS -- December 18, 2013 WSI Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:WSCI) today reported sales for its fiscal 2014 first quarter ending November 24, 2013 of $10,199,000, a 19% increase versus the prior year amount of $8,584,000. Net income for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $345,000 or $.12 per diluted share versus the prior year quarter of $431,000 or $.15 per diluted share. Benjamin Rashleger, president and chief executive officer, commented: “We are pleased to report on our fiscal 2014 first quarter results which include a 19% increase in sales over the prior year first quarter. While our net income of $.12 per diluted share is down versus the prior year first quarter, it is higher than each of the preceding three quarters.” Rashleger continued: “We continue to experience sales growth momentum from our powersports product lines as sales from that industry are up 56% over the prior year quarter as new product lines and models are introduced and increasing in volume. We expect to see continued year over year growth in the powersports business as fiscal 2014 progresses.” Rashleger went on to say: “As we have stated in prior quarters, our energy business remains soft. While a significant portion of our overall business is still derived from this industry, the level of sales is lower than the prior year. We are, however, beginning to see more confidence in the market, and are optimistic that we will see some recovery in this segment during our fiscal year.” Rashleger concluded: “We have had a strong start to our fiscal 2014. We continue to believe that fiscal 2014 will produce sales growth as well as improved bottom line net income. Exceeding $10 million in sales during a quarter is a significant milestone achievement for WSI. We are focused on our long-term goals of growing and diversifying the business and increasing the return to our shareholders. We have made large investments in both our facility and equipment in anticipation of our sales growth, and we have many other parallel initiatives underway in support of our efforts to capitalize further on these investments in the years to come. Finally, we are excited about the opportunity we believe we will have in the aerospace market due to our receipt of our AS9100 aerospace certification, and our focused marketing activities related to expanding our presence in this market.” The Company also announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $.04 per share. The dividend will be payable January 17, 2014 to holders of record on January 3, 2014.
