Management Discussion
  • Net sales increased 10% to $1,092.7 million in fiscal 2020 from $991.3 million in fiscal 2019. The increase in net sales was primarily organic and driven by increased volumes, particularly in the second half of 2020.
  • Gross profit margin was 35.1% of net sales in fiscal 2020 compared to 34.3% of net sales in fiscal 2019. Gross margin expansion was driven by improved efficiencies, as well as lower provisions for excess and obsolete inventory as part of our ongoing efforts to streamline our end-to-end supply chain processes. Additionally, we benefitted from the absence of certain charges that impacted gross margin in the prior year, including increased customer return provisions and a charge related to a historical underpayment of customs duties. These benefits were partially offset by out-of-pocket costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $249.7 million, or 22.9% of net sales, in fiscal 2020 compared to $234.0 million, or 23.6% of net sales, in fiscal 2019. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expense as a percentage of net sales during the period was primarily due to improved leverage from the $101.4 million increase in net sales compared to the prior year, productivity improvements in our Portland distribution facility, as well as reduced travel expenses stemming from COVID-19 restrictions. These decreases were partially offset by higher incentive compensation and employee stock purchase plan expenses compared to the prior year.
