Nautilus, Inc. Reports Strong Results For The Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011

Stocks in this article: NLS

Net sales in the Retail segment for the 2011 fourth quarter totaled $26.5 million, a 10.8% increase compared to the same period last year. The increase reflects improvements in sales of bikes and elliptical products. Operating income for the Retail segment was $5.1 million, a decline of $0.7 million from the same quarter a year ago, primarily due to lower gross margins, offset in part by lower selling and marketing expenses. Retail gross margin was 25.0% in the fourth quarter of 2011, a decline of approximately 620 basis points from the same quarter a year ago, and is mostly due to an increase in new product launch support expenses and increased supply chain costs.

The following table presents comparative net sales by segment for the three months ended December 31, 2011 and 2010:
