EXTON, Pa., Feb. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, announced that the Company's Net Sales for the full twelve months of 2016 were higher than last year, increasing to $94,051,000 from $93,278,000 for the periods ending December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  Net Sales for the final quarter ended December 31, 2016 decreased 1.8% compared the same period in 2015.

The Company's Net Income for 2016 was $14,377,000, versus $15,788,000 during the same period last year, decreasing 8.9%. For the quarter, Net Income was 12.9% lower than last year.

The Company increased its sales volume over the prior year, continuing a steady growth rate over the last several years. However, the company's net sales and net income were dampened by the effects of currency exchange rates stemming from its British subsidiaries. Net income was also affected by high legal-related costs associated with several matters that have since been resolved or dismissed by the court.
