Glacier Water widened its net loss in the period

Glacier Water Services has seen its net losses worsen in the first six months of the year.

In the period to 4 July, the US-based company made net losses of US$1.7m compared to losses of $1.4m in the prior year, the firm announced yesterday (10 August). Operating profits also dropped, to $2.6m from $2.8m in the comparable period of last year, while net sales edged up to $48.48m.

In the second quarter, net profits slid to $76,000 from $77,000, while operating profits increased to $2.2m versus $2.1m in the prior-year period. Sales in the quarter decreased 0.7% to $25.4m.

Brian McInerney, CEO of Glacier Water, said: “Revenues were impacted in the second quarter by the volume-per-store reduction from replacing some mature stores with new and ramping locations, coupled with below-average temperatures in many parts of the country.”
