Ennis, Inc. reported financial results for the quarter and year ended February 29, 2012.

Our consolidated net sales for the quarter were $121.5 million, or down 7.5% from $131.4 million for the same quarter last year. Our print sales for the quarter were $72.4 million as compared to $66.2 million for the same quarter last year, an increase of $6.2 million, or 9.4%.

Our apparel sales at $49.1 million for the quarter were down $16.1 million as compared to $65.2 million for the same quarter last year due to softness in the market and continued pricing pressures. Overall our gross profit margins ("margins") for the quarter were 21.8% as compared to 27.5% for the same quarter last year.

On a segment basis, our print margins increased from 26.9% to 28.3%, while our apparel margins, due to continued higher input costs, primarily cotton, decreased from 28.0% to 12.2%. Our net earnings for the quarter, which were impacted by lower apparel sales and margins, were $3.3 million or $.13 per diluted share, as compared to $9.8 million or $.38 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

For the year, our net sales decreased from $550.0 million for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2011 to $517.0 million for the fiscal year ended February 29, 2012, or a decrease of 6.0%. Our print sales for the year were at $278.0 million, compared to $272.7 million for last year, an increase of $5.3 million, or 1.9%.

Our apparel sales for the year were $239.0 million, as compared to $277.3 million, or a decrease of 13.8%. Overall our margins decreased from 28.1% to 25.2% for the year ended February 28, 2011 and February 29, 2012, respectively.

Our print margins increased slightly during the year from 28.3% to 28.4%, while our apparel margins decreased from 27.9% to 21.6%, again due to higher input costs and pricing pressures.

Our net earnings decreased from $44.6 million, or 8.1% of sales for the year ended February 28, 2011, to $31.4 million or 6.1% of sales for the period ended February 29, 2012. Our diluted earnings decreased from $1.72 per share to $1.21 per share for the year ended February 28, 2011 and February 29, 2012, respectively.

The Company, during the quarter, generated $8.7 million in EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) compared to $17.5 million for the comparable quarter last year. For the year ended February 29, 2012, the Company generated $64.0 million of EBITDA compared to $81.5 million for the comparable period last year.

Keith Walters, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented by saying, “Our print operations continued to deliver revenue and operational results as expected. We feel good about our two print acquisitions this past year, and expect these acquisitions to add at least $80 million in sales and $.25 in diluted earnings. Our apparel results, as we have discussed previously, were impacted by the higher raw material costs now flowing out of our finished goods into our cost of sales.
