Tefron Ltd., a leading producer of seamless intimate apparel and engineered-for-performance (EFPT) active wear, announced financial results for the first half and second quarter of 2011.

Commenting on the results, Amit Meridor, Tefron's CEO said: "Tefron's strong sales and operational improvements provide a clear indication that we are growing in accord with our turnaround plan. The increase in sales to $56.8 million from $50.7 million in the first half last year, represents an annualized sales rate of approximately $110 million for 2011. I am very pleased to report that the strong sales reflect both higher sales to existing customers, as well as an important broadening of the customer base."

Meridor continued, "These first half results do not yet reflect the full potential of the acquisition of the seamless assets of Nouvelle Inc. of Canada. Not only is the organic improvement in performance seen in the first half of 2011 expected to continue, but we expect a greater contribution to growth in the second half of the year from the Nouvelle acquisition, with an important increase in sales to the mass market in the USA, as well as in European markets. Looking further forward, Tefron has been focusing much of our development expenditure and investment in new technology toward the launch of new products in the sports market for 2012. We believe that these products will enable us to return to our global leadership position in seamless technology and the preliminary indications regarding the new products are very positive."

Arnon Tiberg, Tefron's Chairman confirmed that "Tefron is continuing to improve its major financial and operational parameters in line with the strategic objectives of the Turnaround plan introduced by management a year and a half ago. This half year financial report noticeably demonstrates the results of our efforts to increase the efficiency of our operational processes, which had been a major bottleneck in growth. The expansion of sales in the first half of the year is a result of both the enlistment of new large retail customers and higher sales to existing strategic customers. These two factors are a direct result of the steps taken to increase marketing and sales activity in targeted markets in Europe and North America, investment in new product development to regain our position of technological leadership, and our strenuous efforts to improve customer service, timeliness of delivery and quality control. Finally, I would add that we are pleased how management has begun to exploit the synergies and benefits of the merger with Nouvelle, although there are clearly more gains to exploit going forward. "
