Culp, Inc. reported financial and operating results for the third quarter ended January 30, 2011.

For the three months ended January 30, 2011, net sales were $51.7 million, a 4.3 percent decline compared with $54.0 million a year ago. The company reported net income of $2.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with a net income of $3.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2010. On a pre-tax basis, the company reported income of $2.9 million compared with pre-tax income of $3.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2010.

Commenting on the results for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, Frank Saxon, chief executive officer of Culp, Inc., said, "Given the continued macroeconomic challenges in the U.S. and increased raw material costs we experienced, we are pleased with our results for the third quarter, even though they are down from last year's strong third quarter performance. For the year to date period, our sales and profitability are up over the prior year, and we continued to report solid returns on our capital. Further, our net cash position (cash minus debt) is the highest in the company's history, which is enabling us to pursue an aggressive growth strategy during these challenging times.

"We continue to identify new opportunities for growth by expanding our international sales and marketing initiatives primarily in our upholstery fabrics business. We are excited about establishing a European sales and distribution platform with our new operation in Poland and the planned operation in the U.K. We are encouraged by the initial reaction of customers as we enter these markets and begin to capitalize on the global appeal of many of our products in Europe. These initiatives present an opportunity for us to build a significant presence over time in the world's second largest market for furniture fabrics with investment mainly in working capital with minimal risk. We are also optimistic that our European platform may provide the opportunity to sell and distribute mattress fabrics in the future," added Saxon.
