JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Margo Caribe, Inc. (OTC SYMBOL: MRGO) (Margo), a market leader in the home and garden segment, today announced fourth quarter and full year operating results of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Margo Outdoor Living, Inc. for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Net sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022, totaled $16.7 million, up 22 percent from the prior quarter and 14 percent lower than second quarter of last year. The Company reported second quarter unaudited results including pre-tax income of approximately $3.0 million and net income of $2.3 million or $.58 per share.
"The year-over-year decline in sales can be specifically attributed to a single customer participating in a short-term transactional program, excluding this customer, total sales were down less than 1 percent compared to prior year. We believe our sales growth to be consistent with industry segment growth levels given the impact of inflation on discretionary sales for our big-box customer base and a natural pull-back from pandemic fueled ecommerce sales," said Michael Spector, CEO.
Mr. Spector added, "our operating margins remain under pressure from increasing labor costs, continuation of high sea freight rates and elevated diesel fuel prices. Looking forward, we expect to see margin improvement as logistics costs return to more historical norms, receptive pricing flexibility and further product diversification. We are encouraged with progress made to further broaden our product offering and diversify our geographic supplier distribution network. We see specific opportunities in expanding our pottery segment programs using South American and European suppliers with improved margins, more reliable and lower cost supply logistics."
