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.
