WOODBRIDGE, ON, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Organic Resource Management Inc.
("ORMI"), a leader in the provision of vacuum truck services for the
collection, treatment and disposal of non-hazardous liquid waste, today
announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2008, ended
September 30, 2007.
Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 was $114,000, an increase
of $103,000 from $11,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2007. The Company's
core grease interceptor business continues to show strong growth, recording an
increase in revenue of 12% in the quarter over last year. However, total
revenue for the quarter of $3,723,000 was $123,000 or 3% lower than for the
same period last year as the Company replaces its large volume, low margin
industrial business with smaller volume, higher margin grease interceptor
During the quarter the Company was forced to transport a significantly
higher percentage of its residuals to out of province third-party recycling
sites. As a result, the gross margin was $1,198,000 for the quarter, a
decrease of 12% or $167,000 from $1,365,000 last year.
The net income in the most recent quarter reflects the elimination of
preferred dividends and amortization of intangible assets which occurred in
the fourth quarter of 2007.
