Knoll 1st qtr profit falls

Tuesday 30 April 2013

Furniture manufacturer Knoll's net income declined 16% in the first quarter as some expenses rose and prices declined. For the three months ended 31 March 2013 the company said Thursday that it earned $6.1 million, or 13 cents per share, down from $7.3 million, or 15 cents per share, a year earlier. This matched the expectations of analysts. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $53.3 million from $47.6 million. Revenue rose 2 percent to $200.6 million from $196.7 million, buoyed by higher sales for its studio division. Wall Street expected revenue of $198.2 million.
Gross margin fell to 31.7% from 32.1% mostly due to a drop in prices.
Sales for the office and coverings units slipped, while double-digit growth in the seating segment was offset by a drop in office systems sales.
Shares of Knoll Inc., which is based in East Greenville, Pa., rose 15 cents to $16.45 in morning trading on Thursday. Its shares have traded in a 52-week range of $11.96 to $18.69.
