Overhill Corporation (Amex: OVH) yesterday announced operating results for the Company’s third quarter ended June 30, 2001.

For its third quarter of fiscal 2001, the Company reported revenues of $53,500,000 as compared to $46,648,000 for the same period last year, an increase of 15%. Net income for the period amounted to $640,000 ($.04 per share) as compared to $1,025,000 ($.06 per share) for the same period last year.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2001, the Company’s revenues were $149,346,000, as compared to $134,578,000 for the same period last fiscal year, an increase of 11%. The revenue increase is due to continued sales improvement by the Company’s Overhill Farms subsidiary. Operating income decreased to $7,136,000 in 2001 from $8,693,000 in 2000, due primarily to first quarter start-up expenses related to the Chicago Brothers acquisition and energy cost increases experienced by Overhill Farms and by the effect on Texas Timberjack of a continued softness in the East Texas timber market.

Net income for the current nine month period decreased to $1,156,000 ($.06 per share) from $2,177,000 ($.12 per share) in 2000. The prior year’s nine month results included an extraordinary expense of $1,290,000 related to an early extinguishment of debt and a gain of $351,000 on the reacquisition of preferred stock.

In discussing the Company’s results, James Rudis, Overhill Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We continue to be pleased with the sales increases by Overhill Farms. Overhill’s sales have increased primarily in the foodservice and airline segments, which is particularly encouraging in light of a somewhat weakening economy. With respect to our Forestry Group, we are hopeful that Texas Timberjack, although facing a difficult market, will continue to improve on somewhat modest third quarter operating increases.”

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors will meet next week to review and vote on implementing a management proposal regarding a strategic alternative for the Company.
