15:45 EDT Friday, March 23, 2012

FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio, March 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OurPet's Company (OTC BB: OPCO) (www.ourpets.com), a leading proprietary pet supply company, today reported record fourth quarter net revenue of $5,176,292 and a net loss of $152,656 for the three months ended December 31, 2011.

Dr. Steven Tsengas, Chairman and CEO said, "While we are disappointed with the net quarterly loss of $152,656, we are pleased that we achieved record net revenues in a very challenging economic environment.  We continued to make significant progress in completing our transition action plans for re-focusing our corporate growth strategy with emphasis on pet waste and odor control solutions, storage and feeding solutions and innovative pet interactive activity toys and accessories for maintaining and improving pet cognitive health. In addition we have completed implementation of our integrated ERP SX computerized system which should enable us to more effectively manage operations, reduce administrative costs, improve customer service and achieve greater return on assets, especially inventory.

Although we do not see a robust retail environment in the short run, we are confident in our ability to exceed industry trends through product innovation, aggressive marketing and steadily improving operational capabilities. We continue investing for the future, including the recent addition of Mr. John Silvestri as President and COO, who brings over 30 years of pet and consumer product executive and marketing experience to OurPet's."

2011 Fourth Quarter Results

Net revenue increased 10.4% to a record $5,176,292 for the 2011 fourth quarter compared to $4,690,500 for the same period a year ago. The 2011 fourth quarter net revenue particularly benefited from higher sales of Storage and Feeding products and Cosmic Catnip? products. 

Gross profit was $1,043,041 for the 2011 fourth quarter versus $1,244,738 for the same period in 2010. Gross profit margin declined to 20.2% for the 2011 fourth quarter from 26.5% for the fourth quarter last year. The $138,000 inventory reserve adjustment recorded in the 2011 fourth quarter accounted for approximately 2.7% of the margin decrease.

Loss from operations was $181,959 for the 2011 fourth quarter compared to income from operations of $455,329 for the same period last year. Most of the year-over-year decrease was the result of the $241,000 one time gain on the Cosmic Pet asset purchase recorded in the fourth quarter of 2010 along with the 2011 fourth quarter $138,000 inventory write down, a charge of approximately $53,000 for book to physical inventory differences and approximately $195,000 increased selling, general and administrative expenses recorded during the fourth quarter. 

The net loss was $152,656 for the three months ended December 31, 2011 compared to net income of $396,539 for the same quarter last year. The Company realized an income tax benefit for the 2011 fourth quarter of $70,726 compared to expense of $16,068 for the same period a year ago.  Net loss per share was $0.01 for the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to net income per share of $0.02 for the 2010 fourth quarter.

Gross profit decreased to $4,639,896 for the 2011 year from $4,799,482 for the same period in 2010. For the twelve months of 2011, gross profit margin was 23.6% compared to 28.1% a year ago.   It should be noted that 3% of the year-over-year gross margin decrease was from the approximately $588,000 in total inventory reserve adjustments recorded in the third and fourth quarters of 2011. 

Income from operations was $370,197 for the twelve months of 2011 compared to $1,222,250 a year ago.
