CALGARY, Aug. 20 /CNW/ - Inventronics Limited (IVX:TSX Venture), a designer and manufacturer of custom enclosures for the telecommunications, electric transmission, cable television and other industries in North America, today announced its unaudited 2010 second quarter financial results.

For the three months ended June 30, 2010, Inventronics reported a net loss of $337,000, or 7.7 cents per share, on sales of $993,000 compared to net earnings of $248,000, or 5.6 cents per share, on sales of $3,543,000 for the second quarter of 2009.  Inventronics did not incur any reorganization expenses in 2010 while it charged $107,000 against income during the second quarter of 2009.
