Mr. Humphreys concluded, “While the marketplace is facing challenges ahead, we think Delta Apparel, Inc. is positioned for continued sales growth and earnings expansion. Having a strong portfolio of established brands that appeal to a large and growing consumer base, as well as fresh brands should enhance future growth through further diversification of products and distribution channels. Our manufacturing platform supports these programs by providing low-cost, quality products with short lead-times. Our commitment to continuous process improvement initiatives, along with expansion of our facilities, should allow us to further leverage fixed costs and expand profitability. In addition, the strength of our balance sheet gives us the flexibility to continue to make prudent strategic investments towards our growth in the future. We believe that Delta Apparel, Inc. is well positioned to create significant and sustained value for our shareholders.”
