    Spectra earns $121,910 before taxes in Q3

    2020-10-15 07:55 MT - News Release

    Mr. Andrew Malion reports

    SPECTRA PRODUCTS INC. REPORTS 3RD QUARTER RESULTS

    Spectra Products Inc. has released its financial results for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2020. Revenues for the nine-month period ending September 30, 2020 were $1,185,159 compared to $1,655,103 for the same period in 2019. Revenues for the third quarter ending September 30, 2020 were $343,882 compared to $491,286 for the same period in 2019.

    In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, a net profit before income taxes of $373,285 was earned compared to a net profit before income taxes of $435,777 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019. In the third quarter ended September 30, 2020, a net profit before income taxes of $121,910 was earned compared to a net profit before income taxes of $136,828 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

    As a result of the COVID-19 virus, the slow-down in the various market segments reduced the Company's revenue levels in the third quarter of 2020, however the Company was still able to remain profitable. The Company has strong cash reserves and is well positioned to maintain operations, albeit at reduced levels of revenue and profitability, until market levels return to normal.

    Spectra Products Inc. is the Toronto-based North American designer, manufacturer and distributor of wheel end safety products to the transportation industry. These products include Brake SafeO, Brake InspectorO, Zafety Lug LockO, Hub AlertTM and the Anti-Seize Cotter PinTM as well as the Termin-8RO line of anti-corrosion and extreme pressure lubricants.

    Spectra changes name to Spectra Products Inc.

    2020-01-02 06:29 MT - News Release

    Mr. Andrew Malion reports

    SPECTRA INC. ANNOUNCES AMALGAMATION AND NAME CHANGE TO SPECTRA PRODUCTS INC.

    Spectra Products Inc. (formerly Spectra Inc.) completed a vertical short-form amalgamation with its wholly owned subsidiary Spectra Products Inc. under Section 184(1) of the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) on Jan. 1, 2020. The amalgamation was approved by the board of directors of each of the amalgamating companies. In accordance with the amalgamation, the company changed its name from Spectra Inc. to Spectra Products Inc. The company's stock trading symbol will remain as SSA on the TSX Venture Exchange and it is expected that the company's stock will commence trading under its new name next week following receipt of final approval from the TSX-V.

    No action will be required by existing shareholders or holders of certificates representing common shares with respect to the name change. The company's new Cusip number is 84757D100 and its new ISIN number is CA84757D1006.

    About Spectra Inc.

    Spectra is the Toronto-based North American designer, manufacturer and distributor of Brake Safe, the visual brake stroke indicating system; Brake Inspector, the company's electronic in-cab air brake diagnostic system; and the Termin-8R line of anti-corrosion and extreme pressure lubricants.

    © 2020 Canjex Publishing Ltd. All rights reserved.

    FYI: I spoke to the company regarding the reason for this amalgamation and it was done in order to use over $1 million in tax loss credits from the parent company towards the profitable cashflow of the subsidiary. So Spectra can add over $ 1 million in cash to the bank without having to pay tax on it. Given that the company has been profitable since 2014 and net income grows every year, this is a massive bonus for shareholder value.
