In fiscal 2010 Galvanic's business was impacted by the economic recession and the slowdown in activity. For the fiscal year ended April 30, 2010 the Company recorded a net loss of $206,000 or $0.01 per common share compared to net earnings of $1,049,000 or $0.07 per common share in the prior fiscal year. Despite ongoing cost improvements the decline in net earnings after tax was due to a decrease in gross margins resulting from the reduction in demand, reorganization costs necessary to facilitate and expand the distribution of the Monitek product line in Europe, and foreign currency exchange losses as compared with foreign currency exchange gains. The Company completed the year with a strong balance sheet reflecting working capital of $6,417,000 no debt and a cash position of $2,963,000. Because of its strong financial position the Company is well positioned to implement its product development strategy and pursue new opportunities.
