Unifi, a fiber manufacturer, experienced a significant decline in its shares and sales in the fourth quarter. The company reported a loss of $15.3 million, or 85 cents per share, compared to earnings of $3.5 million, or 19 cents per share, during the same period last year. Sales for the quarter reached $151.1 million, a decrease from $217.6 million in the previous year.
Share Price and Performance
Unifi's shares dropped by 15% to $6.15 following the announcement of its quarterly results. The stock hit its lowest point in 52 weeks at $6.11 earlier in the session, reflecting a 52% decrease over the past year.
Factors Affecting Sales
The primary factor contributing to the decline in sales was weak demand, which was attributed to volatile ordering patterns from brands and retailers. Additionally, Unifi's Repreve Fiber products, which accounted for 29% of sales ($44.5 million), were impacted by lower sales volumes in Asia.
Outlook for the Future
Unifi expects first-quarter sales to be consistent with the results of the fourth quarter.
