Koss Corp. Releases Q4 Results

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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, 2020.

Sales for the fourth quarter were $3,948,967, which is a 31.7% decrease from sales of $5,785,784 for the same three month period one year ago. The three month net income was $158,239, compared to net income of $23,388 for the fourth quarter last year. Diluted and basic income per common share for the quarter was $0.02 compared to diluted and basic income per common share of $0.00 for the three month period one year ago.

“We experienced lower sales in the quarter as retail in the US and Europe struggled to rebound from the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic," Michael J. Koss, Chairman and CEO, said today. "Communications products have become a more significant segment of our revenue as people shifted to working and studying from home."  Koss went on to explain that the Company received a recovery of patent related legal fees in the quarter and experienced improved margins of 34.5% in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to 28.9% in the same quarter last year. 

Sales for the year ended June 30, 2020, decreased 16.2% from $21,842,097 in the same period last year to $18,311,830 in the current year. The net loss for the year ended June 30, 2020, was $465,597 compared to net income of $305,989 for the same period last year. Diluted and basic loss per common share was $0.06 for the year ended June 30, 2020 compared to income per common share of $0.04 for the same period one year ago.

“The decline in sales for the year was entirely in the export markets with Europe basically shutting down to fight the pandemic.  Sales to Asia decreased with completion of a contract during the prior fiscal year,” Koss said. “We were pleased to see sales in domestic markets hold up although there were clear shifts in channels as more sales moved online.”

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.
