Scott's Liquid Gold Announces 3Q Results

November 4, 2004

Scotts Liquid Gold today announced a net loss of $359 thousand on net sales of $5.1 million for the three months ended Sept. 30. This compares to a net income of $231 thousand and net sales of $6 million in the year-earlier period.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2004, Scott's reported a net loss of $986 thousand compared to $931 thousand a year earlier. Net sales totaled about $15.6 million in the current year versus about $17.4 million in the year-earlier period.

"While we are disappointed to report an unprofitable nine months," said Mark E. Goldstein, chairman and chief executive officer of Scott's Liquid Gold, "the company did experience a small increase in sales of household chemical products, and the company has commenced the introduction of an additional wood care product during this period; however, sales have been minimal so far. During the first nine months of 2004 the company experienced a decrease in sales of its skin care products including the Montagne Jeunesse line of products; however, the company is expecting an increase in sales of Montagne Jeunesse products in the fourth quarter of 2004, compared to the third quarter of 2004, due to holiday sales. The loss for 2004 was primarily due to slower sales of skin care products, including Montagne Jeunesse products."
