Schmitt Industries Inc reports Q2 EPS (15c) vs. (8c) last year
Reports Q2 revenue $1.03M vs. $1.15M last year. Excluding expenses not expected to be incurred in future periods, including unrecoverable inventory costs, non-GAAP loss per share was 3c. "The SBS sale has unlocked significant value for our shareholders while partnering the SBS business line and employees with a partner that is strategically positioned and resourced to maximize SBS's potential. We wish SBS/Accretech much success in the years ahead," commented Michael R. Zapata. Schmitt's CEO and Chairman. "As we look ahead to Schmitt 2.0, we will seek to make focused and prudent investments to better determine our businesses' potential. Although our improvements to Company operations are starting to reflect in the financials, the limited size of the two units and the high administrative burden create a hurdle the Company must overcome. We are exploring ways to streamline our operations to better focus our time and efforts on the analysis of the Company's markets and growth potential of Schmitt's businesses in order to maximize our earnings potential. Similar to the 8.9% share purchase we announced in December 2019, we will seek to deploy capital based on return on investment. At this time, we intend to selectively invest in high-return organic investments while retaining the majority of our capital for share repurchases and/or select acquisition opportunities."
