Earlier in August, 2019, the Company secured final approval from the town of New Windsor, NY for the sale of its manufacturing facility.

Management Commentary


James A. Clark, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “Our fourth quarter reflects the initial impact of our restructuring which began last year. Sales and Adjusted EBITDA performance represents a stair-step improvement from the third quarter, although slightly below prior year. Our sales performance versus prior year was the best in five quarters; completing the New Windsor production transfer improves capacity utilization and generates an annual cost savings; and our new product pipeline is developing, with several key launches scheduled over the next several quarters. We generated strong free cash flow in the fourth quarter that resulted in further debt reduction, reflecting our ongoing commitment to disciplined balance sheet management. We finished the fiscal year with total debt below $40 million, and proceeds from the sale of the New Windsor facility will provide liquidity to further reduce our debt from current levels as well as invest in the business.
