Sometimes companies with the most unglamorous businesses can make great investments.
One that comes to mind in Micro Cap is Rockwell Medical (RMTI).
The Company sells hemodialysis products. Rockwell makes hemodialysis concentrates, dialysis kits, and other related products for treatment of end-stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure). Subsidiary Rockwell Transportation is their wholly owned subsidiary which delivers supplies to customers via a fleet of trucks.
RMTI sells and distributes its products directly to hemodialysis providers in the US, as well as through a sales team and independent distributors.
After tracking it for a year, the Company in my opinion looks like a turnaround story here.
First quarter results were released last month, and were impressive.
First Quarter 2005
- Record quarterly revenues of $5,619,508.
- Sales increased 30.4% over the first quarter of 2004.
- Sales revenue was up 17.6% sequentially over the fourth quarter of 2004.
- Liquid acid concentrate gallons increased by 70% over the first quarter of 2004.
- Net Income was $109,215
- Earnings per Share was $.01
- Substantial market share gain in the Southeast region.
- New manufacturing plant in Southeast region began operations in March.
- Secured a $6,500,000 purchase order for dialysis products.
Mr. Robert L. Chioini, Chairman, CEO, and President of Rockwell Medical Technologies, Inc. stated in the press release, "We are pleased with our first quarter sales results and we expect to continue to experience revenue growth in the second quarter. We developed a significant amount of new business during the last year. We also secured supply agreements with several providers located in the Southeastern U.S. To service Southeastern U.S. providers we established a manufacturing and distribution facility in the South in March. We also secured a $6,500,000 purchase order which should result in a substantial sales increase for the Company for calendar year 2005."
In my opinion, now is a good time to look into the company. After restructuring the business last year, they are now ripe for growth.
