“We are very pleased with the company’s return to profitability in the second fiscal quarter,” stated Kelvyn H. Cullimore chairman and president of Dynatronics. “We generated $611,000 in savings in SG&A expenses compared to the prior year period due to our cost-cutting initiatives undertaken in March and July 2008. This, together with lower R&D expenses, resulted in significant improvements in our bottom-line results compared to the same quarter and six month periods last year.
“In an effort to maintain the momentum of profitability in the stiff headwind of a rapidly deteriorating national economy, we have retained the services of Vici Capital Partners to help us uncover a number of additional opportunities to further improve operational efficiencies, improve margins and reduce manufacturing and other costs in order to create a leaner, more profitable organization,” commented Cullimore. “We have targeted over $1 million in additional improvements through this initiative over the coming year.”
