NORWICH, Conn. - June 27, 2014 - PRLog -- June 27, 2014 - Gunther International Ltd. (OTC Pink Sheets:  SORT.PK), a leading designer and manufacturer of high-volume, intelligent software-driven mailing systems, and a leading provider of industrial printing products using thermal inkjet technology, today announced its financial results for the year ended March 31, 2014.

During the year, the Company recorded a onetime Deferred Tax Benefit of $3.9 million. The tax benefit is related to the reversal of a previously recorded deferred income tax valuation allowance that is no longer considered necessary.  The deferred tax benefit is principally related to net operating losses and tax credits which the Company expects will offset future tax payments.

For the year ended March 31, 2014, Net income was $4.1 million, or $0.21 per share, for the year, including the onetime deferred tax benefit of $3.9 million, compared to net income of $566 thousand, or $0.03 per share, reported last year.  For the year ended March 31, 2014, total sales were $26.5 million, compared to total sales of $28.0 million for the year ended March 31, 2013.  The $1.5 million decrease resulted from a decrease in sales of Systems of $1.9 million, partially offset by increases in Supplies of $360 thousand.

Marc Perkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, “Our results reflected a decline in system sales due to reduced spending on capital equipment such as our high-speed, intelligent mailing systems”.  At March 31, 2014, the Company had a systems order backlog of $552 thousand, compared to a systems order backlog of $51 thousand at March 31, 2013.  After the April, May and June activity our order backlog increased to $1.4 million at June 27, 2014.  The current backlog is higher than the backlog existing at the end of the fiscal year, and the Company has ongoing negotiations that management believes will result in additional orders.
