Forward Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: FORD) (“Forward” or the “Company”), a designer and distributor of custom carry and protective solutions, ON 9 December 2014 announced financial results for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2014. Forward generated an operating loss of ($0.1) million in fiscal 2014 compared to operating income of $0.7 million in fiscal 2013. Notwithstanding an increase in sales volumes and net sales revenue year on year of approximately 8% to $33.4 million in fiscal 2014, primarily related to increased demand for our diabetic product line, our cost of sales in the period eroded the gains from this revenue growth, rising by approximately 9% to $26.8 million in fiscal 2014. This resulted in a decline in our gross margin from 21% in fiscal 2013 to 20% in fiscal 2014. In addition, our sales and marketing expenses increased $0.6 million, or 28%, to $2.8 million in fiscal 2014 compared to $2.2 million in fiscal 2013, due primarily to higher personnel costs as a result of Forward management’s decision to expand and restructure our sales and sales support departments. Our general and administrative expenses also increased $0.3 million, or 10%, to $3.8 million in fiscal 2014 from $3.5 million in fiscal 2013 due primarily to increased professional fees related to our MA efforts and the legal support and representation surrounding the lawsuit filed by our former Chief Financial Officer, James McKenna, and our pursuit of counter-claims against Terence Bernard Wise in his ongoing proxy campaign.
