Inventronics Announces 2008 Q2 Results

    CALGARY, Aug. 21 /CNW/ - Inventronics Limited (IVX:TSX Venture), a
designer and manufacturer of custom enclosures for the telecommunications,
electric transmission, cable and other industries in North America, today
announced its 2008 second quarter financial results.
    Inventronics reported sales of $5,468,000 for the second quarter of 2008,
compared to second quarter sales of $5,604,000 in 2007.
    The net earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 were $205,000 or 4.7
cents per share, compared to $186,000 or 4.2 cents per share for the same
quarter in 2007.
    As previously announced the Corporation's largest customer, representing
78% of sales in the first half of 2008, has notified the Corporation that it
is not going to extend the contract with the Corporation as primary supplier
past its expiry on October 15, 2008 and that the Corporation wil become its
second supplier operating without a contract. In addition to the loss of
revenue expected with this significant reduction in sales, reorganization of
the operations is necessary and downsizing costs such as severance will be
material. Management has not yet fully assessed the consequences of the loss
of the contract and the potential reductions in sales volume but expects
aggregate corporate sales volumes to be reduced by approximately 40% to 60% in
future periods.
