OurPet’s Company (OPCO) develops and markets innovative products for improving the health, safety, comfort, and enjoyment of pets. The company sells over 1,000 products for dogs, cats, and domestic and wild birds. According to the most recent report from the American Pet Products Manufactures Association (APPA) approximately 82.5 million U.S. Households reported owning a pet with an estimated pet population of 83.3 million dogs, 95.6 million cats, and 20.6 million birds. US pet industry sales totaled $59.1 billion in 2012 and expected to grow to $75 billion by 2017. This under followed nano cap has a very tight share structure of only ~18.6m shares out FD.   TTM the company has earned $929,000 or 5c in EPS on a Fully Diluted basis compared to $193,000 or 1c in EPS FY 2012 doing just about the same amount of revenue of ~$21m. We feel that OurPet’s is operating as a well oil machine versus the past several years. The company is showing significant increases in sales in all of their primary sales channels. Their Pet Specialty sales channel along with the “mass retail” channel are gaining real traction. The company is launching several new innovative products this year supported by it’s strong IP portfolio of 100 patents and about 125 pending.
