Michael J. Koss, Chairman, and CEO commented:
The composition of net sales in the first nine months differed from the previous year. KOSS noticed a change in distribution to US distributors, European distributors, and domestic direct to consumer sales, as well as a steep fall in US mass retail. KOSS’s focus has changed away from mass-market retailers and toward consumer direct, specialty and distributor-based platforms. The periodic service disruptions of freight carriers are mostly to blame for the quarter’s net reduction in sales revenue.
With the change in sales, gross margins are improving. Domestic mass merchants often have lower gross margins than other distribution channels. There were some odd non-recurring factors in the quarter’s net loss which raised the administrative costs.
