Bemax Inc (OTCMKTS:BMXC) is a penny play in the consumer staples sector. The company had been run into the ground as of last Fall. However, as we noted in our last update, the ship seemed to be turning around to some extent. That sentiment is somewhat reinforced by reports, such as the company’s recent announcement that it has received an $1.1 million purchase order for the supply of its private-label Disposable Baby Diaper from an existing client, a major distributor of the Disposable Diaper in the emerging South and East African markets.
According to their latest release, this new purchase order resulting from the long-term supplier agreement filed on November 16, 2015 is the first tranche of purchase order in 2017, with Bethel Imports paying for each consignment before shipment by Bemax. Apparently, Bemax expects to complete shipment of this order in Q4 2016, which set the company on track to meet its projected revenue for the current fiscal year. Since we last covered the name, the stock has moved 127% higher.
