Edmond J. Pera, President and CEO of Armanino Foods stated, “We are very pleased with our record breaking results this quarter. In addition to breaking records for the third quarter, this is also the Company’s highest quarterly profit ever. Sales to existing US domestic customers were strong across all product lines. Our exceptional performance in the domestic market was partially offset by weaker sales in our Asian markets which were down for this quarter, as well as on a year to date basis.”

Pera continued, “We remain cautiously optimistic about our financial performance for the remainder of this year. Our current sales pipeline and our cash position are strong. We continue to remain guarded in our outlook for our Asian markets, principally Japan, due to our recent performance in those markets and the continued weak currency and stagnant economic conditions that are forecasted to persist in those markets.”

Pera concluded, “The plant expansion project has been completed on time and within our $3.5 million budget. We have successfully transitioned into our newly designed facility where we have been operating now for almost a month. In the next several months we will continue to refine our use of new equipment.”
