Smallcaps Talks With Ironclad Representatives About Company Turnaround and Growth Opportunities
We’re happy to announce the publication of another insightful interview. This time, we sat down with two representatives of Ironclad Performance Wear (ICPW – $0.26), a leader in high-performance task-specific work gloves. We invited Mr. Jeff Cordes, the President and CEO and also Mr. Bill Aisenberg, the EVP & CFO, who both joined the Company in the first half of 2014.
The interview first touches upon the important achievements that have been realized at Ironclad since Mr. Cordes took over the helm.
A substantial portion of the interview is also devoted to the Company’s first quarter results that were announced a couple of weeks ago and that showed a significant improvement in operating margins.
Details are provided about the Company’s current international business and the opportunities for it, while Mr. Aisenberg comments on how the rise of the U.S. dollar is affecting Ironclad.
Also the recent agreements with both Vibram Corporation, which is known for its rubber outsoles for footwear, and Williamson-Dickie Europe, a global supplier of protective equipment for the oil and gas industry, receive plenty of attention. Mr. Cordes gives more details about the deals and explains their potential.
In addition, the interview digs deeper into the upcoming launch of the EXO line of gloves that aims at retail consumers. The CEO describes what we can expect from the brand new glove family.
Finally, both gentlemen share their outlook for the next 12 to 18 months.
This interview is a useful starting point for anyone considering Ironclad and also includes plenty of relevant information for existing shareholders.
