Fountain Powerboats Reports Fiscal 2008 Sales of $68.2 Million

WASHINGTON, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/29/08 --

Fountain Powerboat Industries, Inc. (AMEX: FPB), a leading manufacturer

of high performance fish boats, express cruisers and sport boats, today

announced results for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2008.

Net Sales

Net sales for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2008 were $20,734,513, compared

to net sales of $19,907,661 for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2007.

Net sales for Fiscal 2008 were $68,202,620, compared to net sales of

$68,829,987 for Fiscal 2007.

"The decline in sales of the fiberglass recreational boat market has

affected the segments of the market in which Fountain's boats are sold for

the past two years," commented Fountain's Chief Financial Officer, Irving

L. Smith. "Maintaining approximately the same level of revenue in this

declining market was primarily the result of focused sales activities and

promotions guided by specific goals and objectives."

"We are maintaining market share in the sport boat segment, and

experienced improvement in the express cruiser segment in Fiscal 2008,"

said Fountain's Chairman, CEO and President, Reginald M. Fountain, Jr.

"The international market continues to grow, while the domestic market

declines, and our international sales increased by 28 percent in Fiscal

2008. We expect the Baja by Fountain product line to be a positive

contributor to our revenue in Fiscal 2009," added Fountain.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2008 was $3,380,523, with a

gross profit margin of approximately 16.3 percent, versus a gross profit

of $3,749,583, with a gross profit margin of approximately 18.8 percent,

for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2007.

Gross profit for Fiscal 2008 was $9,402,572, with a gross profit margin of

approximately 13.8 percent, versus a gross profit of $9,108,088, with a

gross profit margin of approximately 13.2 percent, for Fiscal 2007.

Net Profit/(Loss)

Net income for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2008 was $258,305, or net

earnings per share of $0.07 on a basic and diluted basis, versus net

income of $535,059, or net earnings per share of $0.11 on a basic basis

and diluted basis, for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2007.

Net loss for Fiscal 2008 was ($2,199,828), or a net loss per share of

($0.48) on a basic and diluted basis, versus net loss of ($5,046,286), or

net loss per share of ($1.05) on a basic and diluted basis, for Fiscal

The net loss for Fiscal 2007 was affected by the Deferred Tax Expense,

which was approximately $1.3 million for the year.

As of right now, you could buy @ 40 cents a share so the market capitalization is about 1.74 million. Of course if you start buying huge blocks you'll drive the price up. So figure about a million bucks to be 51% shareholder and 2-2.5 to own it all.

If those numbers are correct its a steal.The property the factory is on is worth that.But Reggie would never lose on a hostile takeover attempt

Thumbs up Rip him while you can

Don't worry, it won't be long and he will be private and all the speculation will be over and inquiry minds will want to know.

There's a method to his madness, there was a time he needed to go public and now is the time to go back private.

Stay Tuned.
