Overview

“As expected, we improved our service position on the Stanley line which had been a factor hindering growth in this part of our business throughout the year. While retail activity in our segment of the industry was softer than we anticipated, we did see increased sales in our Stanley line,” commented Glenn Prillaman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The overall decline in sales for the quarter can be attributed to our Young America line, but this was expected due to the short-term disturbances related to consecutive initial production runs of new product in our factory and the difficulties one would expect at retail when exchanging all floor samples for that new product at a time when consumer traffic is slow. However, our Young America backlog grew significantly during the quarter and now stands at the highest level since we consolidated all products into our single factory in Robbinsville.”
