Unifi Inc released operating results for its third quarter ended March 23, 2008.

Net income for the current quarter, including discontinued operations, was $12 thousand compared to a net loss of $13.3 million or $0.22 per share for the prior March quarter.

Net loss for the first nine months of the 2008 fiscal year was $16.9 million or $0.28 per share compared to a net loss of $41.6 million or $0.76 per share for the prior year period.

Income from continuing operations, before taxes of $1.5 million for the current quarter was positively impacted by a $2.2 million recovery of previously accrued restructuring charges.

Net sales for the current March quarter were $169.8 million compared to net sales of $178.2 million for the prior year March quarter. Net sales for the first nine months of the 2008 fiscal year were $523.7 million compared to net sales of $505.0 million for the prior year period.

"The Company's operating performance for the quarter was positive and on an improving trajectory despite a difficult operating environment in which overall U.S. polyester consumption contracted at twice the expected rate, due primarily to the economic slowdown in the automotive, furnishings, and apparel segments," said Ron Smith, Chief Financial Officer for Unifi.

"Although our domestic polyester business had to contend with weaker than expected demand and raw materials costs at five-year highs, we were positively impacted by the benefits of our focus on sourcing strategies, cost reduction efforts, and continued strength in our nylon and Brazilian businesses.
