Pacific Sands, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2012 First Quarter Revenue Growth, Strong Pipeline of Orders Entering Fiscal Second Quarter

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTCQB: PFSD) (PINKSHEETS: PFSD) (, which manufactures environmentally friendly, non-toxic liquid and powder cleaning, laundry, and water treatment products, announced today it anticipates sales for the fiscal 2012 first quarter ended September 30, 2011 will be $350,311 (unaudited), which would represent an 11.3% increase compared with sales of $314,779 in fiscal first quarter 2011.

Management anticipates sales in October, 2011 will exceed $210,000 -- nearly 75% of total sales in fiscal second quarter 2011 -- and that fiscal second quarter sales could exceed $400,000, which would be 36% higher than the prior year's fiscal second quarter. The company recently announced revenue for the year ended June 30, 2011 was 39% higher than the previous year. Pacific Sands has set a goal of $2 million revenue in fiscal 2012, which would represent 28% growth compared with fiscal 2011.

"Fiscal 2011 was a watershed year of significant revenue growth, transitioning to profitable operation, and sharply reducing debt while strengthening working capital," said Michael Michie, president and CEO. "With a strong pipeline of orders across all product lines, efficient manufacturing and distribution capabilities, and invigorated marketing, we are enthusiastic about the coming year.

"Fiscal 2012 is off to a fast start. Our branded Natural Choices products and ecoone pool and spa treatment products continue to receive a very positive reception, and we have steadily expanded our private-label business. Consumers are embracing effective, non-toxic products in growing numbers. We anticipate our operational and expense improvements and double-digit revenue growth will drive profits and significantly enhance shareholder value."

Recent Highlights

  • The company is attending the International Pool, Spa, and Patio Exposition in Las Vegas in early November, and expects to pre-sell ecoone branded products next week, building on last season's strong growth in pool and spa water treatments.
  • Pacific Sands' recent sale of its Internet and retail sales segment will result in nearly $100,000 profit in fiscal second quarter 2012 and enable the company to completely focus on its rapidly growing manufacturing and distribution business.
  • The company hired veteran Peggy Stover as vice president, marketing and sales, to lead brand development and sales.
  • In fiscal 2011, Pacific Sands reduced total liabilities 63%, which has resulted in a significant reduction of interest expense.
