Quik’s revenues for the quarter rose 2.1% to $478 million compared to $468.3 million in the same quarter last year. The gross profit margin rose from 53.2% to 54.8%. Sales, general and administrative expenses were up slightly, but fell as a percentage of sales. Interest expense was down as a result of their balance sheet restructuring from $21 to $15 million.
So how, you might ask, did they go from a bottom line profit of $9.4 million last year in the quarter to a loss of $83.3 million in the quarter that ended April 30, 2011?
