Koss Corp. Releases Q4 Results

 

Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Koss Corporation (NASDAQ SYMBOL: KOSS), the U.S. based high-fidelity headphone company, has reported its fourth quarter results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

 

Sales for the fourth quarter were $5,785,784, which is a 19.2% decrease from sales of $7,157,261 for the same three month period one year ago. The three month net income was $53,921, compared to net income of $270,406 for the fourth quarter last year. Diluted and basic income per common share for the quarter was $0.01 compared to $0.04 for the three month period one year ago.

 

"Most of the decline in net sales for the year occurred in our fourth quarter," Michael J. Koss, Chairman and CEO, said today. "The decline was principally related to a back-to-school promotion which shifted from June to July this year.  In addition, there were shipments to an OEM last year that did not occur in this year's fourth quarter as the contract ended.  Export distributors have shown continued strength but were weaker in this year's fourth quarter than they were last year."

 

Sales for the year ended June 30, 2019, decreased 7.1% to $21,842,097 from $23,522,631 in the year ended June 30, 2018. The net income for fiscal 2019 was $434,114 compared to a net loss of $3,411,220 last year. Diluted and basic income per common share was $0.06 for the year ended June 30, 2019 compared to a loss per common share of $0.46 last year.

 

"Good mix of sales and controlled spending resulted in net income for the twelve months ended June 30, 2019, compared to a loss last year," Koss explained. "In the year ended June 30, 2019, we improved gross margin through improved product mix and control of spending.  Operating expenses were $504,715 lower in fiscal 2019 than they were last year.  The margin improvement and decreased spending resulted in a $776,987 jump in pretax profit.  Last year saw the impact on the bottom line of tax adjustments to write-down deferred tax assets to the new federal statutory rate as well as increase the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. These adjustments drove an increase in tax expense for the twelve months ended June 30, 2018."
