Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

The Company reported Net Sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $10.7 million, an increase of 39.8% percent from the fourth quarter 2011 of $7.7 million. Gross Profit increased 53.9% to $4.1 million, or 38.1% of Net Sales, compared to $2.7 million, or 34.6% of Net Sales in the fourth quarter of 2011.

"As reported in our financial results, the fourth quarter was exceptional on virtually all fronts – sales, operating leverage and profitability," said Scott Jarus, Chairman and CEO of Ironclad.  "We experienced excellent growth within our international sales, industrial safety and co-branded private label channels, and the continuing growth in income from operations reflects the efficiencies and scalability of Ironclad's business model."

Net Income for 2012 increased to $3.1 million, or $0.04 per share, representing a 174% growth when compared to a Net Income of $1.1 million or $0.02 per share, in the prior year.   A 30% reduction in the Company's valuation allowance for deferred tax assets, primarily net operating loss carry-forwards, contributed $0.01 per share to the increase.

Mr. Jarus added, "2012 was an exceptionally successful year for Ironclad.  The strength of the Ironclad brand, representing quality, innovation, performance and value, has drawn customers to our products and enabled us to not only grow business with our existing customers, but to add entirely new distribution channels, such as those in the retail automotive sector."
