During the three-month period ended October 31, 2020, a gross profit of $10.8 million declined by $10.5 million or 49.3% compared to the prior-year quarter primarily due to the decline in sales. Since the Company is shifting toward a digital-first strategy, the gross profit margin was drastically impacted by delivery and distribution cost since the prior period was mainly devoted to retail sales distribution. Having increased e-commerce sales significantly, delivery and distribution expenses increased by 4.2 million, lowering the gross profit percentage. For the three months ended October 31, 2020, gross profit as a percentage of sales dropped to 41.3% from 54.1% the year prior.
