“We delivered strong profitability, with earnings per share at the high end of our range due to our focus on operational efficiencies,” Ritch Wood, CEO, said in announcing the results. “Revenue came in slightly below expectation, primarily due to the challenging regulatory environment in Mainland China, where meeting restrictions continued throughout the quarter. Despite this, our sequential sales leader trends stabilized both in China and globally, and recent product introductions and business incentives drove year-over-year increases in customer acquisition. Our manufacturing segment also continued to perform well, with revenue growing 18 percent this quarter.”

ZAGG

ZAGG Inc., based in Salt Lake City, reported net income of $8.7 million, or 30 cents per share, for the third quarter ended Sept. 30. That compares with $14.6 million, or 51 cents per share, for the same quarter a year earlier.

The headcount reductions are expected to provide gross annualized savings of approximately $8 million, the company said.

Our outstanding top-line performance, combined with improved efficiencies in our manufacturing, supply chain, fulfillment and marketing, along with a shift in certain marketing and human resource investments until later in the year, fueled substantial gains in operating margin and profitability.

“The foundation for sustained growth is in place. I am confident that we have assembled the right team and implemented the right strategies to successfully capitalize on Purple’s breadth of proprietary technologies and processes. We move forward focused on building on our momentum by further investing in the business to bring enhanced comfort to consumers and generate increased value for our shareholders.”
