Consolidated sales for the quarter ended January 31, 2017, were $11.2 million, compared to $13.8 million in the prior year, a decrease of $2.6 million or 18.9%. The decrease in sales was largely due to lower volumes in the transportation and oil and gas sectors.

Gross profit for the quarter ended January 31, 2017, was $2.0 million, or 18.0% of sales, compared to a gross profit of $2.9 million, or 20.9% of sales in the prior year. The decrease in gross profit was related to the decrease in sales and the product mix during the period.

Selling and administrative expenses for the quarter ended January 31, 2017, were $0.9 million, or 8.5% of sales, compared to $1.2 million, or 8.4% of sales in the prior year. The decrease in SG&A is primarily due to a decrease in wage costs and professional fees.

"The demand in the automotive portion of our business has been strong, and we have seen evidence of demand improvements in our other markets as well. We continue to implement business development strategies and improve efficiencies, while monitoring the potential risks and opportunities arising from a dynamic export market."
