Industrial Services of America, Inc. Management's Comments
With the release of our earnings for the first quarter of 2006, we are pleased to announce that we have now recorded twelve consecutive profitable quarters. This sustained profitability continues to place us in a stronger financial position, allowing for greater flexibility to adjust to changing economic market conditions. Our goal is to remain dedicated to the recycling, management services, and equipment industry while sustaining steady growth at an acceptable profit, adding to the net worth of the Company, and providing positive returns for our stockholders.
We are benefiting from the nonferrous and ferrous markets in the United States and abroad as our recycling segment continued to maintain its momentum this past quarter. The momentum has continued into the second quarter and we expect this momentum to continue throughout the year. The reduction in management fee revenues is due to the loss of a customer, referenced in 8-K dated September 16, 2005. Income before income taxes for the first quarter of 2006 of $694,211 and the net income for the first quarter of 2006 of $416,526 are primarily due to the recycling segment.
Our Computerized Waste Services Department and our Waste Equipment Sales and Service Department continue to work closely together to provide waste equipment and management services in a more efficient manner to our customers. Certain efficiencies which have resulted from this combined effort have helped us lower our operating expenses without sacrificing our capacity to take on new business.
We have entered into a settlement agreement on a litigation matter with Andrew M. Lassak in which we have agreed to grant Mr. Lassak an option to purchase 40,000 shares of common stock at $1.25 per share with registration rights.
