Koss Corp Q4 Sales Up 26%

Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Koss Corporation (NASDAQ SYMBOL: KOSS), the U.S. based high-fidelity headphone company, has reported its fourth quarter results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 .

"We are very pleased with the strong sales in the fourth quarter and the increase for the year. The Company is beginning to see the results from efforts to grow the export distributor business and export OEM business. Spotty performance across the US markets tempered the overall results," Michael J. Koss, Chairman and CEO, told employees here today. "Specialized domestic niche markets can be choppy and we experienced lower activity in several of them this year after some outstanding improvements in fiscal year 2015."

Sales for the fourth quarter were $7,238,684 , which is a 26.6% increase from sales of $5,718,865 for the same three month period one year ago. The three month net income was $233,487 , compared to net income of $354,808 for the fourth quarter last year. Diluted and basic income per common share for the quarter was $0.03 compared to $0.05 for the three month period one year ago.

"We have partnered with a new Pan-Asian distributor and our sales in the region are beginning to grow as the new distributor extends Koss products into its retail and distribution network. The new distributor was initially focused exclusively on China during the first six months of fiscal year 2016 and has now expanded its efforts throughout the region," Koss continued. Koss noted that the growth of export OEM business and new product introductions also helped to increase sales.

Sales overall for the twelve months ended June 30, 2016 increased by 7.3% to $26,001,346 compared with $24,230,056 for the same twelve month period a year ago. Twelve month net income was $1,389,000 compared to $482,613 for the same twelve months last year. Diluted and basic income per common share was $0.19 compared with $0.07 for the same twelve month period a year ago.
