Talon International, Inc. Reports Third Quarter and Nine Months Financial Results for 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Talon International, Inc. (OTCQB: TALN), a leading global supplier of zippers, apparel fasteners, trim and interlining products, reported financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights

  • Third Quarter 2012 sales increase 20% over same period in 2011.
  • Gross profit margin for the Third Quarter 2012 up 2.2 percentage points from 2011.

Financial Results

Total sales for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $11.3 million; rising 20% or $1.9 million more than the same period in 2011. Zipper product sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $5.7 million as compared to $5.0 million for the same quarter in 2011, and Trim product sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $5.5 million as compared to $4.4 million for the same quarter in 2011. Total sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $33.2 million; an increase of $1.8 million or 5.8% compared to the same period in 2011. Zipper product sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $17.1 million as compared to $17.8 million for the same period in 2011, and Trim product sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $16.1 million as compared to $13.6 million for the same period in 2011. "We are very pleased with the sales gains achieved this quarter and year to date," noted Lonnie Schnell, Talon's CEO. "The sales gains evidence the important strategic wins we continue to achieve as we target bringing new nominations of image-driven and performance active specialty brands to our roster of marquee customers, and as we further our expansion within the European marketplace," Lonnie Schnell continued.

Gross profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $3.7 million or 32.3% of sales as compared to $2.8 million, or 30.1% of sales for the same quarter in 2011, an increase of $0.8 million and 2.2 percentage points. Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $10.8 million, or 32.5% of sales, as compared to $9.8 million, or 31.2% of sales for the same period in 2011, an increase of $1.0 million or 1.3 percentage points. The gross profit increases for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011 were principally attributable to increased sales, an improved mix of higher-margin trim product sales, and a greater mix of sales to specialty retailers as opposed to mass merchandisers.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 and 2011 were $3.3 million and $3.0 million, respectively. Operating expenses for the first nine months of 2012 and 2011 were $9.9 million and $9.2 million, respectively. The increases in operating spending were associated with additions to our internal sales force and expanding our sales presense in Europe; non-operational professional and advisory fees; and higher legal costs associated with our efforts to secure patent and trademark rights worldwide. These spending increases were partially offset by lower overall net compensation costs. Sales and marketing expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $1.2 million as compared to $1.1 million for the same quarter in 2011. Sales and marketing expenses for the first nine months of 2012 were $3.5 million; an increase of $0.4 million over for the same period in 2011. General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 totaled $2.1 million compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2011. General and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $6.4 million, reflecting an increase of $0.3 million over the same period in 2011.

Provision for income taxes, net for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $182,000, as compared to benefit from income taxes, net of $57,000 for the same period in 2011. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 provision for income taxes was $176,000 as compared to $357,000 for the same period in 2011. The provision for income taxes, net for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 included the reversal of a potential tax liability of $196,000 established in 2007 for foreign tax positions that might have been subject to reversal upon a regulatory review. During the first quarter of 2012, the time limit for assessment of the tax liability expired and the liability was removed.

The net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $187,000 as compared to a net loss of $126,000 for the same quarter in 2011. The net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $652,000 as compared to a net income of $129,000 for the same period in 2011.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the real benefits to focus on, how to understand the requirements of a successful solution, the flow of ...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment.

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
