Second quarter highlights and outlook

Second quarter gross margin rose 180 basis points to 54.2 percent compared to last year’s second quarter. The company said, improved product and better management of inventory enabled it to generate higher quality revenues and that it also benefited from the continued shift toward more molded product.

For the third quarter, the company expects revenues to be between 230 and 240 million dollars and gross margin to be essentially flat to the third quarter of 2016 since gross margin in the third quarter of 2016 included a benefit of more than 200 basis points due to a favorable inventory adjustment.

The company continues to expect 2017 revenues to be down low single digits compared to 2016 gross margin to be approximately 50 percent.
