Crawford United Corporation Announces First Quarter 2021 Results

  • Revenue of $24.0 million
  • EPS of $0.93
  • Completed the acquisitions of Komtek Forge and Global-Tek Manufacturing

CLEVELAND, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crawford United Corporation (OTC: CRAWA), a growth-oriented holding company serving diverse markets, today reported results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, sales were $24.0 million compared with $25.3 million in the same period last year.  In this quarter, the Company recorded operating income of $2.3 million compared with operating income of $3.1 million in the same period last year. Net income was $3.1 million, or $0.93 per fully diluted share, compared to $2.1 million, or $0.63 per fully diluted share in the same period last year.

The decreases in sales and operating income were due to the ongoing global pandemic, which continued to weaken customer demand in some of the industries served by the Company’s business segments. The increase in net income was primarily the result of forgiveness in the amount of $1.5 million by the U.S. Small Business Administration in accordance with the terms of the CARES Act.

Brian Powers, Chairman and CEO, stated “We are pleased with the ongoing recovery of our business from the pandemic and remain confident in our ability to achieve long-term strategic priorities. Our recent acquisitions of Komtek Forge and Global-Tek Manufacturing will positively impact our levels of sales and earnings for the remainder of 2021. Crawford United is continuing to explore opportunities for growing revenue and improving profitability, with an eye towards additional acquisitions.”
