Eco Building Products, Inc. Subsidiary, Wood Protection Technologies (WPT), Cites Continued Strong Sales in June
SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwired – Jul 13, 2017) – Eco Building Products, Inc., (OTC PINK: ECOB) announced today that its subsidiary, Wood Protection Technologies (WPT), reported higher sales in June and three consecutive month over month increases. The Company reported positive EBITDA for the month of May — just two months after signing its first national distribution agreement. Revenues from the agreement combined with sales to existing Affiliates to far exceed the Company’s forecast.
“Orders picked up much faster than we expected and fortunately we were able to ramp up our supply chain and shipments accordingly. While we still have some work to do in getting our longer term operations in order, we were able to demonstrate right out of the starting blocks that this is a very scalable business model,” said Tom Comery, WPT’s President and CEO.
We’ve been reporting that orders and shipments are well ahead of forecast and in fact, to post positive EBITDA just six months after forming the new Company was very gratifying. And the robust cost and pricing models we’ve put in place held our margins to expectation.”
The Company also reported that it expects revenues to taper off in July and August while its distribution network absorbs the inventory but then return with widespread replenishment orders. “Revenues will be a bit saw toothed with an upward overall trend over the next four quarters as we ramp up the new Company’s customer base.”
