EXTON, Pa., April 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omega Flex (Nasdaq:OFLX) today reported its results of operations for the First Quarter, 2011:
Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, indicated the Company's 2011 1st Quarter Revenues were largely similar to the 1st Quarter of 2010, with a slight decrease of 1.7% or $193,000. Net Income was down 23.8% or $256,000 from the same period last year, mostly a factor of increased material costs.
The results for the three months indicate continued market penetration of the Company's products, evidenced by the Company's steady revenues against an approximate 13% drop in U.S. housing starts in comparison to last year. The Company continues to pursue diversified applications for its various flexible metal hose technologies, and expand its market through the use of its proprietary products.
