Tulsa, OK, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GREYSTONE LOGISTICS, INC. (OTCQB:GLGI). Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reports results of operations for the nine months and three months ended February 28, 2022.

Greystone recorded net income available to common stockholders (net income less preferred dividends and income from non-controlling interests) for the nine months ended February 28, 2022, of $3,044,535, or $0.11 per share, compared to $2,366,837, or $0.08 per share, for the prior period. The three months ended February 28, 2022, resulted in net income available to common stockholders of $452,458, or $0.02 per share, compared to $633,456, or $0.02 per share, in the prior period. Net income was $3,496,217 and $603,244 for the nine months and three months ended February 28, 2022, respectively, compared to $2,814,728 and $782,497 in the prior periods, respectively. EBITDA for the nine months ended February 28, 2022, was $8,237,357 compared to $9,392,907 for the nine months ended February 28, 2021.

The gross profit margin was 9.7% on sales of $53,069,648 for the nine months ended February 28, 2022, compared to a gross profit margin of 18.1% on sales of $47,602,690 in the prior period. The paucity of profit margins for the current periods was principally due to the impact of inflationary factors on raw material pricing, machine downtime resulting from labor force shortages and inflationary labor costs.

“Greystone continues to perform well in a very difficult inflationary environment” stated CEO Warren Kruger. “Our current customer base is stable and demand is growing. To supplement production and future growth, Greystone is now manufacturing under contract at three other locations including Mexico. Two large tonnage injection machines are on order for additional capacity needs as well as plastic grinding and pelletizing lines to support the additional production. We were recently able to highlight two new products at the Modex show in Atlanta that the market has been demanding. Material costs for rods, grommets, and our recycled material continue to pressure margins and we anticipate the need to make additional adjustments.”

Greystone Logistics is a "Green" manufacturing company that reprocesses recycled plastic and designs, manufactures and sells high quality 100% recycled plastic pallets that provide logistical solutions for a wide range of industries such as the food and beverage, automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical and consumer products. The Company's technology, including a proprietary blend of recycled plastic resins used in the injection molding equipment and patented pallet designs, allows production of high-quality pallets more rapidly and at lower costs than many other processes. The recycled plastic for Greystone’s pallets helps control material costs while reducing environmental waste and provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin.
