Flexsteel Reports Third Quarter Sales And Net Income Gains

The Company continues to experience increases in the cost of certain raw materials, such as steel, polyester fiber, fabric and leather, and finished products. We are implementing price increases to help mitigate the impact of the increased material and finished product costs, however, we will continue to experience downward pressure on gross margin until we realize the full benefits of these sell price increases and see an end to the cost increases.

We remain committed to our core strategies, which include a wide range of quality product offerings and price points to the residential and commercial markets, combined with a conservative approach to business. We will maintain our focus on a strong balance sheet through emphasis on cash flow and improving profitability. We believe these core strategies are in the best interest of our shareholders.
