Goodfellow Reports its Results for the Second Quarter Ended February 28, 2014

DELSON, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 25, 2014) - Goodfellow Inc. (TSX:GDL) announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended February 28, 2014. The Company reported a net loss of $0.3 million or $0.04 per share compared to a net loss of $0.9 million or $0.11 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the second quarter were $95.4 million (same as last year). Sales in the US and export activities continued to be strong throughout the second quarter while sales in Canada declined impacted by the slower economy in Quebec and decreasing housing starts in Eastern Canada. Ontario and Western Canada sales posted a strong performance to mitigate this decline. On the operating side, costs remained under control in the face of challenging winter conditions. As a result, direct, selling, and administrative expenses remained level with last year at $18.7 million. The Company renewed its loan agreement increasing its loan facility to $90 million and finalized its acquisition of its Drummondville plant for a total consideration of $3.4 million.

For the six months ended February 28, 2014, the Company generated net earnings of $0.9 million or $0.10 per share compared to net loss of $0.2 million or ($0.02) per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the six months of fiscal 2014 were $205.7 million compared to $207.5 million for the same period a year ago.

"As usual the winter quarter poses a major challenge for the Company but the first half results are markedly better than last year. Combining this with the weaker Canadian dollar for US sourcing and Quebec's weak economy, the results were predictable." said Richard Goodfellow, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our US export business and our hardwood and softwood core lumber businesses remained however very solid accounting for the improvement in the results. We are well postured now to face the expected spring demand."

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.
