MILWAUKEE, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Koss Corporation (KOSS) (the “Company”), the American high-fidelity headphone company, reported results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Sales for the third fiscal quarter were $4,634,552, an increase of 16.2% over sales of $3,987,452 for the same three-month period a year ago. Three-month net earnings were $403,204, compared to a net loss of $474,168 for the third quarter last year.

Sales for the nine months ended March 31, 2022 decreased 5% from $14,125,537 for the same period a year ago to $13,415,506 for the current year. Net income for nine months was $882,814 compared to net income of $161,651 for the same period of the previous year. Diluted earnings per common share were $0.09 for the nine months ended March 31, 2022, compared to earnings per common share of $0.02 for the same nine-month period a year ago.

“The year-over-year sales decline is the result of lower sales to some national distributors and the complete withdrawal of an unbranded model from a single major U.S. retailer. Direct-to-consumer sales ( DTC) continue to grow following a shift in business from brick-and-mortar retail stores to direct-to-consumer online sales,” said Michael J. Koss, President and Chief Executive Officer today. “While sales to European distributors exceeded the first three quarters of the previous year, the export gains were offset by a contraction in sales to distributors in Asia.

“The improvement in gross margin for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2022 can be attributed to last year’s exit from traditional mass retail stores, resulting in a more favorable product mix within of growing market classes,” continued Koss. “The inconsistent global response to the persistence of COVID-19 and the war in Eastern Europe has continued to disrupt the supply chain and exacerbate the negative impact that current administration policy has had on energy costs.” These political factors offset some of the company’s gross margin preference. While rising energy costs are expected to persist and inflate our material costs, the company continued to invest in its finished goods inventory and brought in a freight forwarding partner to ensure some improvement in freight rates. of the quarter.
