Orange 21
Inc., the parent of Spy Optic, reported sales in the first quarter fell 36.2%
to $7.4 million from $11.6 million. The loss in the period of $804,000, or 8
cents a share, was slightly less than the deficit of $851,000, or 10 cents, a
year ago.

 

The net
loss in the latest quarter included $130,000 in non-cash share-based
compensation costs in accordance with FASB No. 123.

 

“As
stated last month, the current recession continues to have a significant impact
on our global sales,” commented Stone Douglass, the company’s chief executive officer.
“During the first three months of 2009 compared to the first three months of
2008, we have reduced total operating expenses by approximately $1.8 million.
In addition, we have been seeking new opportunities on a global basis.”

 

Jerry
Collazo, the company’s chief financial officer, added, “During this period we
have worked together with our vendors and customers and fully appreciate the
difficulty everyone is undergoing and we believe that these efforts will
enhance business relationships.”

 

Concluding,
Douglass added, “We continue to experience a soft economy and as such we are
operating cautiously and managing expenses appropriately, but we are very
excited about new opportunities that are unfolding for Orange 21 and its shareholders.”
