Management Discussion
  • Net Sales. Our net sales for fiscal 2021 were $540,782,000, which represents an increase of $4,951,000, or 0.9%, from fiscal 2020 of $535,831,000. Sales for fiscal 2021 included $12,779,000 in core revenue due to a realignment of inventory at two customer distribution centers with expected future sales benefits as product mix changes. This increase in sales was partially offset by the negative impact from a number of factors related to the global COVID-19 pandemic, including disruptions with worldwide supply chain and logistics services.
  • Sales mix for fiscal 2021 compared with fiscal 2020 for: (i) rotating electrical products represented 72.8% compared with 73.3%, (ii) wheel hubs products represented 15.6% compared with 14.9%; (iii) brake-related products represented 9.7% compared with 8.9%; and (iv) test solutions and diagnostic equipment and other products represented 1.9% compared with 2.9%.
  • Gross Profit. Our gross profit was $109,461,000, or 20.2% of net sales, for fiscal 2021 compared with $118,400,000, or 22.1% of net sales, for fiscal 2020.  Our gross profit was impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic, including disruptions with worldwide supply chain, logistics services, and related higher freight costs. Higher freight costs impacted gross profit by approximately $1,785,000, or 0.3%. Additionally, our gross profit was further impacted by $5,268,000, or 1.0%, due to COVID-19 related costs for wages and personal protective equipment.
