Share:

OWINGS MILLS, Md., Aug. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Security Instruments, Inc. (AMEX:UUU) today announced results for its fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019.

The Company reported sales rose approximately 7.3% to $4,343,291 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, versus $4,045,996 for the comparable period of last year.   The Company reported a net loss of $608,954, or $0.26 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $438,833, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year.

"The primary reason for the higher loss was an increase in Joint Venture loss and higher interest expense in the amount of $148,482. Additionally, the Company's gross margins were lower compared to the comparable quarter due to the impact of tariffs," said Harvey Grossblatt, President and CEO.
