Johnson Outdoors Reports Growth In 2nd Quarter Sales And Earnings

O THER F INANCIAL I NFORMATION

At March 29, 2013, debt, net of cash was $20.2 million which was slightly below debt, net of cash of $21.8 million at the end of the prior year quarter.  Depreciation and amortization was $5.1 million year-to-date, compared to $5.7 million during the prior year-to-date period. Capital spending totaled $6.1 million during the first six-month period compared with $5.0 million in the previous 2012 year-to-date period.

"Pre-season demand and a delay in shipments due to a delayed season in some U.S. markets resulted in the increase in inventory. Access and analysis of proprietary point-of-sale data helps ensure we take the right steps at the right time throughout the year to keep inventory levels consistent with demand," said David W. Johnson, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "Our cash position is strong, providing us the ability to invest in targeted strategic growth opportunities as we continue to evaluate a range of capital deployment strategies."
