Global-Tech Advanced Innovations Inc. (NASDAQ:GAI) today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015.

Net sales for fiscal 2015 were $78.0 million, up 24.4%, when compared to net sales of $62.7 million in fiscal 2014. Net loss for fiscal 2015 was $6.4 million, or $2.11 per share, when compared to a net loss of $10.6 million, or $3.47 per share, in fiscal 2014. Included in net loss for fiscal 2014 was $5.5 million from discontinued operations.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 were $16.2 million, compared to $17.7 million in the corresponding period in fiscal 2014. Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $1.7 million, or $0.68 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.2 million, or $1.06 per share, for the corresponding quarter in fiscal 2014.

John C.K. Sham, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We continue to focus our efforts on improving our productivity and efficiency in our electronic components business. Despite increased volume and better product mix when compared to fiscal 2014, improvements were insufficient to generate positive cash flow during fiscal 2015.”

Mr. Sham continued, “Our leasing program for those portions of our facility that previously housed our now discontinued home appliance and EMS operations is currently generating sufficient income to cover the costs of maintaining our factory complex in Dongguan, China.”

Mr. Sham concluded, “Advancements in our medical product business continued in fiscal year 2015, as we continue to penetrate target markets.”
