Snack products maker Golden Enterprises, Inc. (GLDC: Quote), on Thursday reported a lower profit for its first quarter due to an increase in selling and other expenses, as well as higher income tax payment.
Looking ahead, the company said commodity costs remain a concern due to recent drought conditions affecting corn and refinery issues that have in the past contributed to higher fuels costs.

Net revenues for the first quarter rose to $34.68 million from $33.24 million for the same quarter last year.

Shares of Golden Enterprises are currently trading at $3.30, up 10 cents or 3.12%, on the Nasdaq.
