Management Discussion
  • Consolidated sales in fiscal 2020 declined $41.4 million compared with the prior year primarily due to lower sales in our Upholstery segment, partially offset by the benefit of a full year of sales from our Joybird and Retail segment acquisitions which occurred in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. In the first three quarters of fiscal 2020, consolidated sales increased 3.5%, or $45.1 million, driven primarily by strong sales in our Upholstery and Retail segments. This trend reversed in the fourth quarter due to the impact of COVID-19. Fiscal 2020 fourth quarter sales were down $86.5 million when compared to the fourth quarter last year, resulting in a 2.4% decrease in full year fiscal 2020 consolidated sales compared with last year.
