Management Discussion
  • The seasonal nature of CSS’ business has historically resulted in lower sales levels and operating losses in the first and fourth quarters and comparatively higher sales levels and operating profits in the second and third quarters of the Company’s fiscal year, thereby causing significant fluctuations in the quarterly results of operations of the Company.
  • Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2019 decreased to $112,932,000 from $133,231,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018. This decrease was driven by decreases in craft, gift and seasonal net sales of $1,072,000, $4,373,000 and $14,854,000, respectively. The decrease in craft sales was primarily due to lower replenishment orders of needle arts and kids' crafts. The decrease in gift sales was primarily due to lower replenishment orders of social stationery products, infant products, and packaging and wholesale products. The decrease in seasonal sales was primarily due to lower sales of Christmas ribbons, bows, cards, and gift card holders, and Valentine's Day products.
  • Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2019 decreased to $29,987,000 from $33,463,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in gross profit was primarily driven by the impact of lower sales volume and mix of sales of $8,435,000 which was partially offset by $941,000 of lower inventory step-up amortization, $824,000 of lower distribution costs, $689,000 of lower operational variances, and the absence of incremental costs of $2,544,000 related to operational inefficiencies associated with the Christmas 2018 ribbon and bow production in connection with the now complete trade remedy petition with the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
