CSS Industries, Inc. Reports Results Of Operations For The Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

CSS Industries, Inc. (NYSE:CSS) announced today its results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 11.9% to $61,067,000 from $54,569,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2012, primarily driven by higher sales of all occasion and Halloween products. Costs of goods sold, as a percentage of sales, decreased from 74.1% in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 to 71.8% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 reflecting lower commodity and other input costs. The majority of the first quarter increases in sales and gross profit were due to product shipping earlier than last year and which was expected to ship in the second quarter of this fiscal year. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased by 5.1% to $18,570,000 primarily due to reduced salaries and related costs. A portion of the lower year over year SG&A expenses relates to staff reductions that occurred during the last three quarters of fiscal 2012. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was ($1,333,000) compared to ($5,484,000) in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was ($867,000), or ($0.09) per diluted share, versus ($3,447,000), or ($0.35) per diluted share, in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, including discontinued operations, was ($904,000), or ($0.09) per diluted share, versus ($7,569,000), or ($0.78) per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company’s seasonal orientation has historically resulted in operating losses in the first and fourth quarters of the fiscal year and operating profits in the second and third quarters.
