02/10 10:02A (DJ) PRESS RELEASE: Fountain Powerboat Industries, Inc. Reports
Second Quarter Results; Sales Growth Continues in Fiscal Year
Story 4109 (FPWR, I/ENT, I/MRE, I/REC, I/REQ, N/DJN, N/DJWR, N/CAC, N/CNW...)
WASHINGTON, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 10, 2004--Fountain Powerboat
Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:FPWR), The leading manufacturer of high performance
sport boats, fish boats and express cruisers, announces results for the second
quarter of fiscal 2004 ending December 31, 2003.
Net sales for the quarter were $13,437,796 up from $12,941,227 for the
second quarter of fiscal 2003. Net earnings were $254,718 for the quarter, or
5 cents per share on a basic and diluted basis, compared to net earnings of
$482,459, or 10 cents per share on a basic and diluted basis, for the same
quarter of fiscal 2003.
Net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2004 ended December 31, 2003
were $26,323,028 up from $25,016,213 for the first six months of fiscal 2003,
an increase of 5%. Net loss for the six months was $90,121, or 1 cent per
share on a basic and diluted basis, compared to net earnings of $651,704 for
the first six months of 2003, or 14 cents per share on a basic and diluted
basis.
Operating income for the quarter was $457,053 and for the first six months
of fiscal 2004 year was $567,805.
President and CEO Reginald Fountain says "By expanding and enhancing our
dealer organization and continuing to broaden our product lines we are
experiencing sales growth over our record growth year of fiscal 2003. The
decrease in earnings as compared to the same six months of fiscal 2003 is
primarily attributable to sales model mix, higher promotional and advertising
expenses in the first quarter, and a write-off of $210,344 of unamortized
closing costs of a loan with G.E Capital that was paid from proceeds of an $18
million Bank of America loan during the first quarter. Our earnings
performance improved in the second quarter resulting from an improving sales
model mix and our on-going cost reduction programs became effective."

I'll have to look at the financial release. The real questions are; what is his cash balance; does any debt come due this quarter; what are his payable & receivables, what do any footnotes say?
