New Canaan, CT- Tesoro Enterprises, Inc. announced today the publishing of its First Quarter 2012 Financial statements. The report included, among other things, the following summary of Management’s Discussion and Analysis of the Results of Operations for the first quarter of 2012.
“Net Sales for the three months ended March 31, 2012, was $98,335 compared to $93,789 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, an increase of $4,546. The increase in Net Sales is primarily attributable to the Net Sales from the second store. Revenues consist of ordinary sales activity, and are consistent with recent history.
Gross profit, generated primarily by FFCT, for the period ended March 31, 2012 was $29,254 compared to $30,844 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, a decrease of $1,590. The decrease is primarily due to increases in material and labor costs. The increases in material and labor costs resulted in a reduction in Gross Margins to 30% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 33% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.
Operating expense for the period ended March 31, 2012 was $53,691 compared to $156,701 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, a decrease of $103,010. The decrease, in operating expenses, is due to the elimination of start-up costs of Store #2 and reduced corporate overhead; and, consists primarily of general and administrative expenses.
Net loss for the period ended March 31, 2012 was $(28,956) compared to $(129,044) for the period ended March 31, 2011, a decrease of $100,088. The primary contributor to the decrease in Net Loss was the decrease in operating expenses discussed above. Management expects improvement in net Income/ (Loss) as the weather improves, as Store #2 continues to gain market share in its new territory and the expansion of the company’s commercial flooring operations.”
Henry Boucher, Company CEO said that the growth in Net Sales for Q1 ’12 over Q1 ’11 represents a 5% growth rate. He also noted a significant reduction in operating expense and net loss. The balance sheet has been strengthened by the conversion of a majority of debentures to common stock.
