Inventronics Announces 2009 Q3 Results

CALGARY, Nov. 26 /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 2009 third quarter financial results.

Inventronics reported sales of $1,552,000 for the third quarter of 2009 compared to third quarter sales of $4,132,000 in 2008.

The net losses for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 were $170,000 or 3.9 cents per share, compared to a loss of $235,000 or 5.3 cents per share for the same quarter in 2008. Losses before reorganization costs were $149,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 compared to losses of $92,000 in 2008.

"Sales for this quarter were substantially lower than the first half of this year because nearly all of our large customers suspended or depleted their capital budgets for 2009," said Dan Stearne, President and CEO. "This low level of sales is expected to continue to the end of the year."
