Massive Furniture Orders in 2012 impacting Kimball Q3 results now

Wednesday 8 May 2013

Kimball International, Inc. has reported that its consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 increased 6% from the prior year third quarter as increased net sales in the Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) segment were partially offset by lower net sales in the Furniture segment. Similar to last quarter, growth in several market verticals within the Furniture segment was offset by a double-digit decline in both office furniture sales to the federal government and in hospitality furniture sales due to the comparable prior year period including sales from two unusually large projects.
"The comparison to the prior year third quarter was a difficult one in the furniture segment as we shipped two unusually large hospitality furniture projects last year,” explained CEO James Thyen. “Orders in this segment were soft during the quarter, particularly within certain areas of office furniture. Within the hospitality market, the high end of the market appears to be recovering while there is continued price sensitivity and discounting in the lower end of the market.”
