Chief Executive Officer and President, John Sarvis, stated, “They completed the third quarter of their fiscal year with net sales of $442.4M, reflecting a 3.1 percent decrease over the previous quarter and a 2.5 percent increase over the same quarter in the previous year reflective of the typical holiday seasonality, which primarily influenced the U.S. and European markets as consumers closed production facilities. Current market conditions are being influenced by a slowdown in China’s economy with tariffs being the primary impact together with the slowdown in automotive sales and production in all regions. As a result, their sales for the quarter were negatively influenced but we anticipate recovery going forward as certain new emission requirement issues were resolved this quarter.
