Koss Sales Decline on Weak European Demand

MILWAUKEE, WI -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Koss Corporation (NASDAQ: KOSS), the U.S. based high-fidelity headphone company, has announced results for its second quarter ending December 31, 2012.

Sales for the second quarter were $8,642,031 compared to $9,990,771 for the same period one year ago, a 13.5% decrease. Net income fell by 59.3% to $338,688, compared to $831,212 for the second quarter last year. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.05 compared with $0.11 in the same period one year ago.

Sales for the six months ended December 31, 2012 were $17,556,893 compared to $18,745,556 for the same period one year ago, a 6.3% decrease. Net income fell by 36.6% to $704,841, compared to $1,111,809 for the same period one year ago. Diluted earnings per share for the six months were $0.10 compared with $0.15 in the same period one year ago.

"European distributors have experienced declining demand from their customer base which translates into lower sales for Koss. Sales to U.S. domestic retailers held up with new customers helping to offset declines in revenue," Michael J. Koss, President and CEO, told employees here today. "The European economy continues to be soft. In addition, certain export orders were disrupted and not shipped at the end of December due to the threatened dockworker strike on the Eastern Seaboard."

Koss added that over the last several years, the Company invested in software development tied to its Striva product line. Those costs are now being amortized, which has increased costs and lowered earnings. The Company is expecting to launch several new products, based on this technology, in the next 6-12 months.

The Company will pay a dividend of $0.06 cents per share on April 15, 2013, to shareholders of record on March 29, 2013.

Koss Corporation markets a complete line of high-fidelity headphones, speaker-phones, computer headsets, telecommunications headsets, active noise canceling headphones, wireless headphones, and compact disc recordings of American Symphony Orchestras on the Koss Classics label.
