LANGLEY, BC, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Bevo Agro Inc. (TSXV:BVO) announces sales for the three months ending September 30, 2012 were $2,082,883. This compares to sales of $1,700,825 for the same quarter last year.
The first quarter is historically the lowest revenue producing period of the year as the company greenhouses are transitioning from flowers and bedding plants delivered in the fourth quarter to propagated vegetable plants for delivery in the second and third quarters.
The gross margin for the quarter was $320,692 compared to $253,353 the prior year with the increase a result of an increase in sales.
