Flexsteel Announces Level Earnings On Lower Sales

Stocks in this article: FLXS

Capital expenditures were $0.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Depreciation expense was $0.7 million for the fiscal quarters ended September 30, 2011 and 2010. The Company expects that capital expenditures will be approximately $14.0 million for the remainder of the 2012 fiscal year including the cost to construct, furnish and equip a corporate office building.

All earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis.

OutlookThe Company believes that top line growth will be modest through fiscal year 2012. Macroeconomic conditions, such as high unemployment, minimal job growth, a weak housing market and low levels of consumer confidence, continue to adversely impact our business. The commercial office industry is reporting improving order trends. While sales have benefited minimally from those improvements to date, we believe sales volume will increase during fiscal year 2012. We anticipate increased orders for hospitality products during the remainder of fiscal year 2012 resulting from pent up demand caused by delays in typical refurbishing cycles for hotel properties.

The Company remains committed to its 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.
