Cybex posts 15-percent increase in Q1 sales

Cybex International (Nasdaq: CYBI) said its net sales increased to $39.8 million in the first quarter of this year, a 15-percent increase over the $34.7 million it posted in the first quarter of 2007.

Net income rose slightly as the cost of sales also increased in the quarter. Net income was $1.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, last year. The cost of sales was up from $21.8 million in the first quarter of 2007 to $25.6 million in the latest quarter. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $11.5 million in 2008 up from 2007's $10.7 million.

"Current U.S. and world economic conditions likely will make our corporate goal of double-digit growth in sales and earnings more challenging in the short-term," John Aglialoro, Cybex chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
