MONTREAL, Aug. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Clemex Technologies Inc. (TSX Venture: CXG.A) announces its financial results for Fiscal Year ending April 30th, 2010. The Corporation ends this Fiscal Year with a Loss before taxes of $229,487 while a $9,599 loss before taxes had been posted in 2009. Sales dropped by 28.5% to $3,659,129 from $5,120,918 in 2009. The critical sales drops came from the United States and Europe with decreases of 33.5% and 76.8 % respectively. Gross Margin remained the same at 59.3%.
When asked to comment these results, the President and CEO, Clement Forget declared the following: "The collapse of the manufacturing sector in United States which began near the end of 2008 has continued to affect our results significantly during this past year. Further more, the economic difficulties and slow down in the European area has also affected the sales on the International side. And despite a slight regain in economic activity at the end of the fiscal year, we see that manufacturing industries have not yet fully recovered from the slowdown."
Mr. Forget continued: "Despite a significant drop in sales, tight control of expenses has allowed us to minimize our loss. On the other hand, our new research project of a medical device for Hematology applications developed in partnership with NRCC is on track and we anticipate sales for this new instrument in the third and fourth Quarter of this next fiscal year. We anticipate the future optimistically in view of the activity regain in the manufacturing sector and the introduction of new products for the medical sector."
