Janel World Trade Ltd. Reports Second Quarter Revenue of $22.7M an 18% Increase vs. Prior Year Second Quarter

Revenue Increases to $49M for the Six Months -- Up 35.5% -- When Compared to the Prior Year

JAMAICA, NY--(Marketwire - May 16, 2011) - Janel World Trade, Ltd. (OTCBB: JLWT), a full-service global provider of integrated transportation logistics and vertically integrated supply chain services in the food industry, announced today financial results for the three and six months ending March 31, 2011.

Second Quarter Results

For the three months ending March 31, 2011, Janel reported revenue of $22,701,632, an increase of $3,430,677 or up 17.8% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2010.

For the three months ending March 31, 2011, the Company reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $(144,021) or $(0.006) per fully diluted share, down from the prior year reported net income available to common shareholders of $102,334, or $0.006 per fully diluted share.

Fiscal Year to Date Six Month Results

For the six months ending March 31, 2011, Janel reported revenue of $49,135,626, an increase of $12,866,739 or up 35.5% compared to the six months ended March 31, 2010.

For the six months ending March 31, 2011, the Company reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $(139,201) or $(0.006) per fully diluted share, down from the prior year reported net income available to common shareholders of $48,547, or $0.003 per fully diluted share.

Review and Outlook

"Taking into account that our first and second quarters are historically the weakest due to seasonal factors, the results were disappointing for the quarter ended March 31, 2011," said James N. Jannello, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer. "We experienced slightly higher freight volumes from most of our customers when compared to the prior year, and the bulk of the increase in volume that we did see was from our larger customers but it was at a higher cost of sales than the prior year so the net impact of the revenue increase to us did not fall to our bottom line. Prior to this quarter's earnings we had four consecutive quarters reflecting record quarterly revenue and positive earnings. In addition, during the quarter we prepared for the launch of our new operating division which is focused on vertical integrated supply chain services primarily in the food industry and, as previously announced, the division has already signed a long term agreement with its first customer to handle all supply chain services. We expect this new division to substantially contribute to our overall gross profit margins."

Jannello continued, "Looking ahead, our expectation is for improvement in our financial results for 2011 and exceeding $100 million in annual revenue. Our new operating division focused on vertical supply chain services, our recent asset acquisition of Ferrara International Logistics and our core logistics business units performing in a recovering economy, along with our anticipation that our customers will continue to report improvement in their respective businesses and the addition of new customers, leads us to the expectation that we can finish fiscal year 2011 with another record revenue year and increased net income."

Jannello concluded, "We are excited about the significant profit potential in our new operating division catering to the food industry. By being involved from the production to the selling of food products, Janel will be realizing higher gross profit margins than just capturing the logistics portion of the distribution channel. We look forward to working closely with our first client, Paul Sorvino Foods, Inc."
