SALT LAKE CITY, Nov 12, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ZAGG Inc. (NASDAQ: ZAGG), a leading producer of mobile electronics accessories including the popular invisibleSHIELD(TM) and ZAGGaudio(TM) brands, announces successful results for the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2009, ended September 30, 2009. ZAGG highlighted a 42% increase in revenues when compared to third quarter 2008 and also reported positive fully diluted earnings per share of $0.04 for the second quarter 2009. For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, ZAGG had a 116% increase in revenues when compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2008 and also reported positive fully diluted earnings per share of $0.14 for the same period.
During the quarter, a decline in website sales as a percentage of revenue adversely affected gross margins. With the expected launch of ZAGGskins in Q4 2009, we expect gross margins to increase. On November 11, 2009 we pre-released ZAGGskins(TM) to our ZAGG Zealots email database to test front and back end capabilities. A full launch of ZAGGskins can be expected in the next couple of weeks. ZAGGskins will offer our unique invisibleSHIELD protection with full printed customization at a comparable pricing point to competing customizable sticker applications. We believe ZAGGskins will be widely used and quickly accepted as people look to customize and protect their consumer electronics. The expected success of ZAGGskins will propel high margin website sales. In addition, starting in Q4 2009, ZAGG expects raw material costs to materially decrease, thus further increasing gross margins.
"ZAGG's growth is consistent and reliable, this is our fifth consecutive record revenue producing quarter and we believe we will continue to grow for the foreseeable future," said Robert G. Pedersen II, President and CEO of ZAGG. "We look forward to discussing our future initiatives with our investors, including ZAGGskins, ZAGGsparq and ZAGGbox, and expanding opportunities with national retail, international, and wireless partners."
