In recent years, the U.S. pet products and services market has experienced strong growth, with total sales accounting for approximately $73 billion in 2014, according to a report by Packaged Facts. In 2015, this strong performance is expected to continue, building on the recent rise in related ecommerce purchases, as well as an uptick in dog and cat ownership throughout the country. In order to capitalize on this market performance, OurPet’s has continued to expand its product line in recent months by introducing both the Catty Whack® and the Zoom Plume™ products at the Las Vegas SuperZoo convention for pet retailers earlier this year.

“We are very excited about our new line-up of products,” Steven Tsengas, chairman and chief executive officer of OurPet’s, stated in a news release. “Our goal is to create products that work in tandem with pets’ natural instincts to ensure their emotional, mental and physical health while always helping to increase the bond between pets and their parents.”

In the first quarter of 2015, OurPet’s successfully leveraged the strong performance of the pet products and services market to record financial results. The company’s net revenue for the period was just under $5.6 million, which was a 7.3 percent year-over-year increase. Additionally, OurPet’s achieved a 59 percent year-over-year increase in net income, recording more than $213,000 for the quarter.

“We achieved solid results for the first three months of 2015, which included… the second highest first quarter income in four years,” continued Tsengas.

OurPet’s, through its innovative and extensive line of popular pet products, is in a favorable strategic position to continue building upon its recent market growth. For prospective shareholders, this positioning makes the company an intriguing investment opportunity in the months to come. Look for OurPet’s to capitalize on steady market performance while providing an opportunity for the company to realize strong investor returns in the future.
