Management Discussion
  • Mattress fabrics sales decreased 9.8% in fiscal 2020 compared to the prior year. These results for fiscal 2020 reflected the significant disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. We experienced a rapid drop in demand beginning in mid-March, as customers and retail mattress and home furnishings stores began closing or substantially limiting their operations. Due to government-mandated closure requirements near the end of March, we shut down our facilities in Canada and Haiti for several weeks. We also reduced our production schedules and furloughed workers at our U.S. facilities to align with the severely reduced demand, while aggressively cutting costs, delaying non-essential capital expenditures, and reducing inventory.
