EXTON, Pa., May 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dean W. Rivest, CEO, announced that net sales of Omega Flex, Inc. (OFLX) (the ?Company? or ?Omega Flex?) for the first quarters of 2024 and 2023 were $25,216,000 and $29,987,000, respectively, decreasing 15.9%.? The decrease in net sales was mainly due to lower sales unit volumes as the overall market continued to be suppressed because of, among other factors, a decline in housing starts.

The Company?s net income for the first quarter of 2024 was $4,219,000 compared to $5,742,000 for the first quarter of 2023, decreasing $1,523,000 or 26.5%, mainly due to the decrease in net sales and related decrease in production. The decrease in net sales and production resulted in lower absorption of factory labor and overhead costs in the quarter.

Factors mitigating the lower net sales in the quarter included lower executive incentive and stock based compensation; lower provision for income taxes; lower product liability reserves and expenses; lower marketing commissions and freight; and higher interest income.? However, higher marketing salary-related and travel expenses partially offset these mitigating factors.?

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
