Galaxy Foods Company (AMEX:GXY), a leading producer of nutritional, health-promoting dairy and dairy related alternatives for the retail, foodservice and industrial markets, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2001 second quarter and six-month periods ended September 30, 2000.

For the three months ended September 30, 2000, net sales increased 16% to a record level of $12.2 million, versus $10.5 million in the comparable period of the prior year. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2001 was $712,230, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $784,720, or $0.08 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2000.

Galaxy achieved net sales growth of 12% to $23.5 million in the six-month period ended September 30, 2000, versus $20.9 million in the first half of fiscal 2000. Net income for the first half of fiscal 2001 was $1,401,554, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $1,400,404, or $0.15 per diluted share in the six months ended September 30, 1999.

Commenting on the results, Chief Financial Officer Keith Ewing, stated, "Fiscal 2001 second quarter results were in line with Company and Wall Street expectations. Strong sales growth in our flagship Veggie line and Soyco line more than offset a planned decline in our lower margin private label business. Profit margins were lower due to increased marketing expenses incurred to expand distribution, enhance brand recognition and secure product placement."

President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Angelo Morini, commented, "We are continuing to implement methods for building Galaxy and its profitability with the goal of enhancing shareholder value. Strategic marketing initiatives are intended to enhance consumer awareness of the Veggie and Soyco brands in the second half of this fiscal year, ramping up demand in conjunction with increased manufacturing capabilities derived from the installation of our new equipment. Additionally, we are streamlining corporate operations in an effort to remain a lean, efficient organization."
