TSXV Symbol: CYF
CALGARY, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Canyon Creek Food Company Ltd., ("Canyon Creek")
listed on the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. under the trading symbol "CYF"
announces fiscal 2008 annual results. Listed below are some of the highlights.
Canyon Creek sales increased 12.5% in fiscal 2008 to $5,772,758 compared
to the fiscal year ended May 31 2007 of $5,128,566. This increase in sales
primarily relates to further development with our retail business.
The gross profits increased from 10% to 14% during the fiscal year ended
May 31, 2008, compared to the fiscal year ended May 31, 2007. This increase is
attributed to lower cost of ingredients, efficiencies at plant level and the
addition of higher margin customers.
The net loss for the year ended May 31, 2008 increased by $207,912 to
$1,536,204 compared to the fiscal year ended May 31, 2007 of $1,328,292. The
increase in losses is attributable to the write off of our license agreement
and product development costs of $479,697. This decision is consistent with
GAAP requirements for valuing assets based on financial performance. Prior to
these write offs the net loss would have actually decreased by $271,785.
