SAN MARCOS, Calif., Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI") (Nasdaq: NAII), a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, today announced net income of $3.3 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, on net sales of $79.5 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015.
Fiscal 2015 net sales from contract manufacturing activities increased $2.3 million or 3.5% as compared to the prior fiscal year due primarily to higher sales volumes of existing products in existing markets and new product sales to new customers. CarnoSyn® beta-alanine royalty and licensing revenue increased 67.9% to $9.1 million during fiscal 2015 as compared to $5.4 million for fiscal 2014. The increase in CarnoSyn® beta-alanine revenue was primarily due to the increase in raw material sales as a result of taking over the direct sale and distribution of CarnoSyn® beta-alanine effective April 1, 2015. Net sales from our branded products declined 39.8% to $698,000 in fiscal 2015 as compared to fiscal 2014 due to the discontinuation of this product line effective December 31, 2014.
Net income for fiscal 2015 was $3.3 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $2.0 million for fiscal 2014, or $0.29 per diluted share.
Net sales for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2015 increased 6.6% to $22.6 million as compared to $21.2 million for the prior year period. The increase in net sales during the fourth quarter was primarily related to increased beta-alanine raw material sales. Net income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $1.0 million or $0.15 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1.1 million or $0.16 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.
As of June 30, 2015, NAI had cash and cash equivalents of $18.6 million and working capital of $34.5 million compared to $19.5 million and $31.3 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2014.
