(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). Canada-based Gildan Activewear has reported a major slump in net earnings in the second quarter ended April 5th citing an 83 percent decline to $7.1 million from $42.1 million during the same quarter last year.
Gildan attributed the reduction in net earnings to “significantly lower unit sales volumes, as a result of weak end-use demand and the timing of wholesale distributor replenishment, and significantly lower gross margins, as a result of the consumption of higher-cost inventories produced in previous quarters and unfavorable product-mix.”
Net sales during the same quarter declined by 16.7 percent to $244.8 million from $293.8 million during the prior year’s quarter.
Activewear sales faced a 21.9 percent decline, including a 13.9 percent decrease in unit shipments.see more
