Default Fountain Powerboats Reports Fiscal 2008 Second Quarter and Six-Month Financial Result

Fountain Powerboats Increases Revenue 16.6 Percent for Second Quarter


WASHINGTON, NC--(MARKET WIRE)--Feb 14, 2008 -- Fountain Powerboat Industries, Inc. (AMEX:FPB - News), a leading manufacturer of high performance sport boats, fish boats and express cruisers, today announced the results of its fiscal 2008 second quarter and six-month period ended December 31, 2007.


"With the marine market continuing to decline, we are pleased to report that we have increased our revenue 16.6 percent for the second quarter, when compared to last year's second quarter," commented Reginald M. Fountain, Jr., Fountain Powerboats Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "In addition to increased revenue for the quarter, we improved our gross margins and curtailed expenses, which allowed us to decrease our loss for the quarter by approximately 48 percent.

"Historically," continued Fountain, "the second quarter is generally our weakest quarter, so we were very encouraged by our dealers' success at the fall and winter boat shows. We are looking forward to their continued success at the Miami International Boat Show, being held this month."

Good job Marginmn, I just checked my FPB stock and it's up $.01 today, I'm going to take the afternoon off and figure out what I can buy with all the new money. Might run right over to Smith Barney and load up on some more, it's at $1.49 right now, when it goes back to eight I'll make a fortune.

How's winter treating you Robert? Say "Hi" to Lori for us.
