Profire Energy Files Annual 10-K Report
Company Meets Revenue and Net Income Forecasts, Sees Significant U.S. Growth, and Prepares to Leverage Operational Investments in Fiscal 2014
LINDON, Utah, July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Profire Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:PFIE), a technology company which manufactures, installs and services burner management systems and other combustion technologies for the oil and gas industry, today announced that it has filed its annual 10-K report for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.
The Company reported record revenues for fiscal year 2013 totaling $16,887,267 (a 6% increase from $15,925,213 in fiscal 2012), and net income before income taxes of $2,163,560 (a 50% decrease from $4,351,222 in fiscal 2012). Total assets increased 22% to $12,385,873 in fiscal 2013 from $10,125,758 in fiscal 2012, and total liabilities increased 28% to $1,923,226 in fiscal 2013 from $1,494,182 in fiscal 2012.
The year-end figures were consistent with the forecasts released by the company earlier this year. $16.8 million in revenue was realized with $16.7 million in revenue estimated, while after-tax net income realized was $1.4 million with $1.4 million estimated.
The annual report comes at the end of a year that entailed a number of significant accomplishments for the company, according to Profire's chief financial officer Andrew Limpert:
"We made a number of key investments in ourselves during fiscal 2013, which began to yield returns. We expect those returns to continue in fiscal 2014," said Limpert. "We saw significant growth in U.S. revenues this year, growing 503% from FY2012 Q3 to FY2013 Q3. We also released a number of new products that have already been received well in the Canadian and U.S. markets, and filed multiple patent applications to protect our innovations."
Limpert also discussed the nature of the Company's investments:
"We made significant investments in personnel, quality control, and infrastructure to prepare for anticipated sales growth in fiscal 2014. While these investments foreseeably impacted net margins, they are expected to create long-term value for the Company. Even during fiscal 2013, while investing significant resources to prepare for growth, we realized record revenues as these investments were leveraged. We intend to continue executing strategically on our commitment to revenue growth."
Profire's chief executive officer, Brenton Hatch, described the year in light of the Company's long-term strategic plans:
"Throughout fiscal year 2013, our focus as a management team was preparing the Company to execute on our future corporate objectives. We've experienced significant growth in past years, and we determined that a number of key investments needed to be made if we were to increase our sales and distribution capacities, expand our shareholder base, and deliver the kind of long-term stakeholder value that we're committed to as a Company. We believe the investments we made in fiscal 2013 will pay off in fiscal 2014 as we focus on capitalizing on these investments."
Some of the Company's major announcements during the fiscal year included a distribution agreement with Fortune-500 company Cameron, a new flare-ignition system, a new patent-pending airplate product, a number of new research and development initiatives, a new Company website, multiple office-expansions, as well as multiple awards for financial management and corporate growth.
The Company continued to report no debt.
