Koss Corp. Releases Third Quarter Results

MILWAUKEE, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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, 2021.

Sales for the third quarter were $3,987,452, which is a 16.7% decrease from sales of $4,789,441 for the same three month period one year ago. The three month net loss was $474,168, compared to a net loss of $97,373 for the third quarter last year. Diluted and basic loss per common share for the quarter was $0.06 compared to a loss per common share of $0.01 for the same three month period one year ago.

Sales for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, decreased 1.7% to $14,125,537 compared to $14,362,862 in the same period last year. The nine month net income was $161,651 compared to a net loss of $623,835 for the same period last year. Diluted and basic income per common share was $0.02 for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 compared to a loss per common share of $0.08 for the same nine month period one year ago.

"Net sales in the first nine months had a different composition than last year. We saw a shift to US distributors, European distributors and domestic direct to consumer sales and a sharp decline in US mass retail," Michael J. Koss, Chairman and CEO, said today. "The business has shifted away from a concentration in mass market retailers to more consumer direct, specialty and distributor based channels. The net decline in the quarter's sales revenue can largely be attributed to the sporadic service disruptions of freight carriers."

"Gross margins are improving with the shift in sales," Koss explained. "Domestic mass mart retailers typically yield lower gross margins than the other channels. The net loss in the quarter included some unusual non-recurring items that increased administrative costs."

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.
