BOSTON, MA–(Marketwired – May 05, 2015) – Zoom Telephonics, Inc. (“Zoom”) (OTCQB: ZMTP), a leading manufacturer of cable modems and other communications products, today reported net sales of $3.06 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015 (“Q1 2015”), down slightly from $3.15 million for Q1 2014 due primarily to reduced sales of dial-up modems. Zoom reported net income of $5 thousand or $0.00 per share for Q1 2015, an improvement over Zoom’s net loss of $37 thousand or $0.00 per share for Q1 2014, due primarily to a small increase in gross profit and a small decrease in operating expenses.
Gross profit was $957 thousand or 31.3% of net sales in Q1 2015, versus $932 thousand or 29.6% of net sales in Q1 2014. The increases in gross profit and gross margin were primarily due to lower end-user rebate program costs for Q1 2015.
Operating expenses were $929 thousand or 30.4% of net sales in Q1 2015, versus $954 thousand or 30.3% of net sales in Q1 2014. Operating expenses in Q1 2015 were $25 thousand lower than in Q1 2014, as lower personnel expenses and reduced R&D expenses were partly offset by increased advertising expenses.
Zoom’s cash balance on March 31, 2015 was $65 thousand, down $73 thousand from December 31, 2014. Zoom’s available line of credit was $1.25 million on March 31, 2015, and Zoom’s outstanding debt under this line was $469 thousand. Zoom’s $371 thousand decrease in bank debt and $90 thousand increase in prepaid expenses decreased cash, while a $231 thousand decrease in net accounts receivable, $94 thousand decrease in net inventory, and $75 thousand increase in accounts payable increased cash. Zoom’s current ratio was 2.4 on March 31, 2015 and 2.1 on December 31, 2014.
“We are encouraged by our improved operating results,” said Frank Manning, Zoom’s President and CEO. “We’ve done a good job of reducing our expenses, and we will continue our push to grow revenues and profits. In 2015 we hope to significantly improve results primarily through new product introductions and sales growth for cable modems, cellular modems and routers, and Internet-connected wireless sensors. We will discuss our plans in more detail during our quarterly conference call.”
