CompX International Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

CompX International Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $24.2 million against $26.5 million a year ago. Operating income and income before taxes was $3.0 million against $3.4 million a year ago. Net income was $2.0 million against $2.2 million a year ago. Basic and diluted net income per share was $0.16 against $0.18 a year ago. Net sales increased in 2014 principally due to strong demand within Security Products including a new initiative for an existing government customer, increased market penetration in electronic locks and strong demand in transportation markets. Operating income increased as a result of the positive impact of the higher sales and related improvement in fixed manufacturing cost coverage with higher production volumes, partially offset by the impact of lower variable margins due to relative changes in customer and product mix as well as increased personnel costs and depreciation within Security Products. For the nine months, the company reported net sales of $69.7 million against $79.1 million a year ago. Operating income and income before taxes was $7.3 million against $10.6 million a year ago.
