FARMERS BRANCH, Texas, Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Ironclad Performance Wear Corporation (OTCQB: ICPW), the recognized leader in high-performance task-specific work gloves, reported financial results for the second quarter and year to date ended June 30, 2015.

The Company reported increased Net Sales for the quarter of $5.2 million, a 7% increase from $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, on stronger sales from international, private label and retail accounts.

Gross Profit dollars increased 7% to $1.8 million, or 34.4% of Net Sales, compared to $1.7 million, or 34.4% of Net Sales, in the second quarter of 2014 due primarily to higher revenues. Gross margin for the year-to-date period is improved by 4.8% from the same period in the prior year.

Operating Expenses were consistent year-over-year at $1.9 million for the quarters. Q2 2015 operating expenses represented 37.2% of Net Sales as compared to 40.2% of Net Sales in the second quarter of 2014.

As a result of the above, Loss from Operations decreased by $132,220, to a loss of $149,728, from a loss of $281,948 in the second quarter of 2014.

Interest Expense increased $20,193 to $20,193 in the second quarter of 2015 from $-0- in the same period of 2014. This increase is due to increased borrowings under our bank line of credit agreement.

Net Loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $169,914, or $0.00 per share, as compared to a loss of $281,705, or $0.00 per share, in the same period last year. Profitability for the year-to-date period has improved by $504,190 from the same period in the prior year.

Ironclad’s Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Cordes, commented: “The results of the 2(nd) quarter mark an important turn for Ironclad. Despite difficult markets in oil, gas and mining, Ironclad recorded solid increases in revenue and earnings this quarter. These increases came from multiple segments and customers. The growth in the Company’s revenues, the results of our team’s planning and execution, are coming from new customers, new product placements, and simply better execution with our partners. We will continue to execute on this path the balance of 2015 and continue to believe in the 10% to 15% full year growth in sales as previously communicated through our guidance.”
