CTI Industries Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

LAKE BARRINGTON, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- CTI Industries Corporation (NASDAQ: CTIB), a manufacturer and marketer of flexible packaging and storage products, laminated films and novelty balloons, today announced its results of operations for the third quarter of 2012 and for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012.

Consolidated net sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $11,786,000 compared to consolidated net sales of $11,731,000 for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 0.5%. The Company had a net income of $6,000 for the third quarter of 2012 compared to net income of $18,000 for the third quarter of 2011.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, consolidated net sales were $37,410,000 compared to $36,393,000 for the same period in 2011, an increase of 2.8%. For this nine month period in 2012, net income was $317,000 or $0.10 per share (basic and diluted) compared to net income of $329,000, or $0.10 per share (basic and diluted) for the same period of 2011.

Key Factors and Trends

Sales of the Company's new branded line of vacuum sealing machines, pouches and rolls of film expanded significantly in the third quarter. By the end of the quarter, the Company had installed this line of products in approximately 2,700 retail outlets throughout the United States. Sales of this line in the third quarter were over $2 million compared to sales of open-top pouches and rolls in the third quarter of 2011 in the amount of $1.1 million. For the quarter total sales of pouch products increased 49.5% from $2,424,000 in the third quarter 2011 to $3,625,000 in the third quarter 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, sales of pouch products increased by 15.2% from $6,284,000 for the nine month period in 2011 to $7,237,000 in the nine month period this year.

With the installation of the vacuum sealer pouch line in 2,700 stores by the end of the third quarter, the Company anticipates a continued increase in the level of sales in this line during the fourth quarter and 2013 compared to prior periods.

Net sales of foil balloons decreased by 1.9% in the third quarter compared to the same period of 2011, from $4,173,000 to $4,092,000. For the nine month period, sales of foil balloons increased by 2.5% compared to the same period of 2011, from $16,150,000 to $16,557,000.

During the third quarter 2012, the dollar value of latex balloon sales decreased by 10.8% compared to the third quarter of 2011 from $2,961,000 in the third quarter of 2011 to $2,641,000 for the same period of 2012. This decrease is attributable to a decline in the value of the peso with respect to sales denominated in pesos and also to a small decline in Mexico sales by our subsidiary there. The dollar value of latex sales in the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was up 5.8% compared to the same period of 2011, from $7,782,000 to $8,232,000.

Net sales of film products decreased by 45.8% in the quarter, from $1,907,000 in the third quarter 2011 to $1,033,000 in the third quarter this year. For the nine month period net sales of film products were $3,876,000 compared to $5,258,000 for the same period last year, a decrease of 26.3%.

Gross margins increased from 19.3% in the third quarter of 2011 to 22.7% in the third quarter this year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, gross margins were 21.7% compared to 18.7% for the same period last year. The increase in gross margins both in the third quarter and the nine month period resulted from (i) sales of pouch products carrying a higher margin level and (ii) declines in the costs of some raw materials.

Operating expenses increased in both the third quarter 2012 and nine months ended September 30, 2012 over the same periods in the prior year. As a percentage of revenues, operating expenses increased from 15.8% of sales in the nine months ended September 30, 2011 to 18.7% of sales for the same period in 2012. This increase in operating expense related principally to expenses incurred in the establishment and marketing of the vacuum sealing machine product line and in sales management expenses relating to that line.
