TX Holdings Reports Results for Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2017

ASHLAND, Ky., Dec. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TX Holdings, Inc. (TXHG), a supplier of mining and rail products to the U.S. coal mining industry, today announced financial results for its 2017 fiscal year.  During the 2017 fiscal year, the company reported annual revenue of $3,006,599, a 41.3% increase when compared to the same period the prior year. Net loss for fiscal year 2017 was $124,506, a loss decrease of $554,213, when compared to a net loss of $678,719 for the prior year.

Mr. Shrewsbury, the company’s CEO and Chairman, stated that:

“Our fiscal 2017 results were an appreciable improvement over the two prior year results. Having experienced previous periods of lower demand for our mine and rail products, primarily due to a decline in the U.S. coal mining industry, we are encouraged by our improved operational results driven by an increase in product demand during the last three quarters of the current fiscal year, when we experienced an 41.3% revenue increase over the prior year. The U.S. Energy Information Administration has forecast that U.S. electricity produced by coal which rose to 31% in 2017 from 30% the prior year will remain stable during 2018, and we believe this will cause demand for our products to remain at current period levels. We have an increased confidence in the future based on the fact that the number of regulations that have negatively impacted the coal industry have been either eliminated or significantly eased.”
