CompX International Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

CompX International Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. The company announced sales of $27.9 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $25.8 million in the same period of 2014. Operating income was $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $3.3 million in the same period of 2014. Net income was $2.4 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $2.1 million, or $0.17 per basic and diluted common share, in the same period of 2014. The net sales increase in 2015 was led by strong demand within Security Products for an existing government customer and to a lesser extent increased demand for fuel security products, as well as increased sales to the office equipment market. Marine Components also contributed to the increase in sales, primarily as a result of improved demand for products sold to the waterski/wakeboard boat market. Operating income increased as a result of the sales growth in both the Security Products and Marine Components segments, offset in part by increased administrative personnel costs in the Security Products Segment, and operating income as a percentage of sales was favorably impacted by the strong first quarter demand for marine products. Income before taxes was $3.7 million against $3.3 million a year ago.
