Goodfellow Reports Its Results for the First Quarter Ended November 30, 2009

DELSON, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2009) - Goodfellow Inc. (TSX:GDL) announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended November 30, 2009. Net income from operations stood at $2.0 million or $0.24 per share compared to $1.0 million or $0.12 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 were $109.2 million compared to $110.9 million for the same period a year ago. Finally, cash flow from operations (excluding non-cash working capital) for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 increased to $2.5 million from $1.2 million for the same period last year. Sales in Canada grew 3.7% due to strong industrial sales and some recovery in Ontario and signs of optimism in the economy. Sales in US and Export continued to decrease due to our reduced presence in Western US. General expenses, selling and administrative costs for the first quarter ended November 30, 2009 decreased from $18.4 million last year to $17.7 million. The decrease reflects our continued focus on controlling our operating costs.

"Business conditions were generally surprisingly good helped along in Canada by the Renovation Tax Credit" said Richard Goodfellow, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our order file remains strong and prospects for the spring continue to look positive."

Goodfellow Inc. is one of eastern Canada's largest independent re-manufacturers and distributors of lumber and hardwood flooring products. Goodfellow shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GDL.
