Bonal Net Income Plunges

ROYAL OAK (WWJ) -- Royal Oak-based Bonal International Inc. (OTC: BONL) last week announced net income of $111,148 or 7 cents a share for the second fiscal quarter ended Sept. 30, down from $201,196 or 12 cents a share in the same quarter of a year earlier.

Revenue for the quarrer was $581,325, down from $747,048 a year earlier.

"The looming government shutdown and the debt ceiling controversy took a toll on September sales and revenue," said A. George Hebel, chairman of Bonal International. "In the second quarter efforts were in line for high return but were affected by companies that backed off a bit due to the government uncertainty."

Six month revenue was $1.1 million, down 6 percent from $1.2 million in last fiscal year's first six months. Six month net income was $168,692 or 10 cents a share, down 29 percent from last year's $237,152 or 14 cents a share.

Continuing the first quarter trend new customer sales accounted for 62 percent of sales by unit volume.
