Kevin R. Hoben, Chairman and CEO, announced that Net Income of Omega Flex, Inc. (the "Company" or "Omega Flex") was $5,742,000 for the first quarter of 2023 versus $5,451,000 during the same period last year, increasing $291,000 or 5.3%. In contrast to the first quarter of last year, Net Income for the first quarter of 2023 improved mainly due to stronger gross profit because of the lower cost of certain raw materials. Net Sales for the first quarter of 2023 were $29,987,000 compared to $31,293,000 during the first quarter of last year, decreasing $1,306,000 or 4.2%, mainly due to lower sales unit volumes as a result of the overall market being suppressed because of, among other factors, a decline in housing starts. Despite the challenging marketplace, management believes it has indications that it maintained or slightly improved its market share during the first quarter of 2023.
