Management's Comments

Commenting on the financial results and recent developments, Lakeland Industries President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher J. Ryan said, "International operations continue to fuel our performance as we delivered impressive growth in all major operating metrics. On a consolidated basis, we reported higher sales, gross profit and margin, operating profit and margin, net income and margin, and earnings per share.

“We are very pleased with the progress being made in building a diversified international platform that has significant operating leverage for long term growth and profitability, but we are not pleased with domestic performance. Therefore, we are completely reorganizing the US sales force and have appointed Stephen M. Bachelder, Chairman of the Board, as a National Sales Manager for domestic sales. Mr. Bachelder has a deep background in sales and intends to resuscitate eroding US revenues in the coming year.

"Consistent with our business strategy of pursuing market expansion outside of the US, particularly in 'BRIC' nations -- Brazil, Russia, India and China -- and nearby territories, we reported gains in most of our major foreign operations. This strength along with favorable currency exchange rates continues to offset the weakness in our domestic operations, which presently appear to be nearing stabilization.

“Through effective implementation of foreign sales and marketing strategies, we increased international sales by over 13% in the first quarter as compared to the same period of the prior year, approximately three times the rate of GDP growth in the markets in which we operate. International sales represented 42.9% of total first quarter revenues.

"This performance is without the benefit of large bid orders in Brazil, which we are working toward securing, although our Brazilian operations grew approximately 40% year over year. As a result, our quarterly international revenues of $11.1 million represent the highest level in the Company's history.
