NORWICH, Conn., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gunther International Ltd. (OTC Pink Sheets: SORT), a provider of intelligent mailing systems, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 (i.e., the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2005). Total sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 were $6.6 million, compared with total sales of $8.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2005. For the nine months ended December 31, 2005 total sales were $20.4 million, compared to total sales of $21.0 million for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2004. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 was $19,000, compared with a net income of $275,000, or $0.01 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2005. For the nine months ended December 31, 2005, net income was $38,000, compared to a net loss of $1,050,000, $(0.05) per share, for the comparable period last year. The Company's financial statements may be found on the Company's website (http://www.guntherintl.com/) and on the Pink Sheets' website (http://www.pinksheets.com/). Commenting on the results, Marc Perkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "Although sales were disappointing for the quarter, we are very pleased that cost-cutting initiatives allowed Gunther to be profitable at lower revenue levels." Mr. Perkins also noted that the financial strength of the Company is stronger than it may first appear. "While systems sales have declined from 2005 levels, maintenance and supply revenues have increased 13 percent and, despite the decline in total revenues, gross profit has remained at 28 percent. Net income through December 31, 2005 was $38,000 compared to a loss of $1.1 million last year primarily as a result of cost-cutting measures taken as of the beginning of the fiscal year and ongoing throughout the year." In addition, Mr. Perkins stated that the Company's new Champion mailing platform has been well received by the marketplace. He noted that, after the close of the quarter, the Company signed a contract for the largest order in its history. The order, totaling approximately $2,915,000, is from one of the nation's premier insurance companies and provides for the modernization of the customer's mailing operations with the Company's new Champion mailing platform. This order follows two additional orders for Champion systems totaling approximately $1,082,000, for a total of $3,997,000 in orders since December 31, 2005. These orders coupled with a Champion system ordered in December have resulted in a backlog as of February 16, 2006 of $4,164,000, the highest backlog Gunther has recorded since September 2000. According to Mr. Perkins, the Company has had a number of inquiries for additional Champion systems, many of which are expected to convert to contracts in the near future. Mr. Perkins said, "The Champion operating system is the first true revolution in the industry since Gunther first put bar codes on documents twenty years ago. The creation of a mailing system with a built-in database for both incoming information and for job reporting eliminates the need for many other peripheral products that tie the equipment to other parts of the mailstream. "Champion also increases throughput of the Gunther system significantly, more than 100 percent in some applications. We are very pleased at Champion's initial reception in the marketplace and look forward to our future."
