Delta, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 28, 2023) – Fab-Form Industries Ltd. (TSXV: FBF) (“Fab-Form”) releases year end results. Fab-Form achieved a record $6.1Mn in sales in 2022 with a net profit after taxes of $1.25Mn. Cash generated from operations in 2022 was $1.6Mn. Total liquid funds increased to $2.8Mn from 1.5Mn in 2021. Excess funds were placed in short term investments, which will generate additional interest income in 2023.
Supply chain challenges were normalized, and lead time on inbound shipments were shortened to two weeks. However, we anticipate this will get back to four weeks when summer breaks in 2023. There was no reduction in LTL (less than a container load) costs and other modes of local transportation as inflation remains high despite increased interest rates. Warehouse usage was further optimized during the year. Investment in assets increased by $177,746, which includes purchase of new ERP software license, investment in IP and product development costs. No major price revisions were noted in key suppliers, therefore selling prices were maintained at the same level for most products.
Fab-Form remains focused on improving existing products in terms of their usability and quality. Research and development activities related to the development of new products continue to make good progress. We believe the market for Fab-Form products is massive and Fab-Form will continue to exploit new markets around the world. Distribution channels will be developed in harmony with these sales.
Filing of Patent for the Leveler, ICF Monopour Bracket, Fastfoot Leveler was completed in December. Also, finalized the registration of FAST-FOOT trademark at the end of Q4, and FAB-FORM and FAST-TUBE trademarks registrations were finalized subsequent to the year end.
