Tulsa, OK, Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GREYSTONE LOGISTICS, INC. (OTCQB:GLGI). Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reports results of operations for the year ended May 31, 2023.

Greystone recorded earnings per share of common stock for the year ended May 31, 2023, of $0.21 compared to $0.14 for the prior year. Net income was $6,388,108 and $4,546,600 for the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. EBITDA for the year ended May 31, 2023, was $15,234,836 compared to $11,283,711 for the year ended May 31,2022.

Sales for the year ended May 31, 2023, were $60,758,962 compared to sales of $74,170,351 in the prior year. Gross profit margins were 15.4% and 10.5% for the years ended May 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The profit margin for the current year showed significant improvement, while the prior year was principally impacted by inflationary factors on raw material pricing, machine downtime resulting from labor force shortages and inflationary labor costs.

“I am very proud of our teams focus on margins in the face of a slight downturn in our top line sales in fiscal year 2023,” stated CEO Warren Kruger. “Pricing for our main commodity HDPE forced large price adjustments upward last year causing a slight decrease in demand. Greystone’s sales pipeline and opportunities are compounding due to changes in pricing made possible from reductions in the cost of raw materials. Going forward, we have three additional machines - two new large tonnage injection molding machines and a robotic extrusion line to manufacture hollow extrusion pallets that we acquired this year. We anticipate sales volume on the extrusion line later in our year as we make adjustments to the tooling. We will be rolling out new products this year for the grocery, can, nut, cement, tech and beverage industries. We are confident we will fill our machines by aggressively marketing our creatively designed products to existing and new customers.”
