For the period ended August 1, 2010, net sales were $55.9 million, a 23 percent increase compared with $45.5 million a year ago. The company reported net income of $3.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with net income of $1.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

Commenting on the results, Frank Saxon, president and chief executive officer of Culp, Inc., said, "Our stronger sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 reflect better consumer demand trends than a year ago, particularly in the first two months of the quarter, as well as success from our sales and marketing initiatives. Our improved profitability reflects the higher sales volumes, as well as the benefits of a leaner and more cost-efficient operating platform. Today, Culp has a strong competitive position in both mattress fabrics and upholstery fabrics, and, as always, our primary focus is on outstanding execution for our customers as a financially stable and trusted supplier. "

Mattress Fabrics Segment
Mattress fabric sales for the first quarter were $30.9 million, an 18 percent increase compared with $26.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

"Our mattress fabrics business delivered a solid performance, primarily driven by improved retail demand in the bedding industry in the first two months of the quarter, and by the closureof a key competitor in late calendar 2009," said Saxon.
