Koss Supplies Headsets for Telemedicine and "Work From Home" in Tough Q3


Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Koss Corporation (NASDAQ SYMBOL: KOSS), the U.S. based high-fidelity headphone company, has reported its third quarter results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.


Sales for the third quarter were $4,789,441, which is a 1.5% decrease from sales of $4,860,247 for the same three month period one year ago. The three month net loss was $97,373, compared to net income of $137,880 for the third quarter last year. Diluted and basic loss per common share for the quarter was $0.01 compared to diluted and basic income per common share of $0.02 for the three month period one year ago.


“We were proud to do our part to help doctors on the front lines and US workers and students telecommuting from home," Michael J. Koss, Chairman and CEO, said today. "Communications products have traditionally been a relatively small segment of our revenue but were significant in the latest quarter. We are doing everything we can to offer creative solutions to Americans working within “social distancing” guidelines that will likely continue in some form."  Koss went on to explain that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on its Export Customers in the quarter and that its manufacturing supply chain was still struggling to return to 100% of capacity.


Sales for the nine months ended March 31, 2020, decreased 10.5% from $16,056,313 in the same period last year to $14,362,862 in the current year. The nine month net loss was $623,835 compared to net income of $282,599 for the same period last year. Diluted and basic loss per common share was $0.08 for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 compared to income per common share of $0.04 for the same nine month period one year ago.


“The lack of travel restrictions by EU member countries seems to have exacerbated the pandemic in Europe and devastated daily life in several export markets,” Koss said. “Our hearts go out to our partners around the world that have been so terribly affected by the pandemic. We stand ready to help them in any way that we can.”


Koss Corporation markets a complete line of high-fidelity headphones, wireless Bluetooth® speakers, computer headsets, telecommunications headsets, active noise canceling headphones, wireless headphones, and compact disc recordings of American Symphony Orchestras on the Koss Classics® label.
