Company’s net income for Q4 FY20 remained stagnant at $67.0 million (Q4 FY19: $67.7 million).
“Our year-long efforts to control inventory and expenses and preserve liquidity have resulted in encouraging fourth quarter results. We ended the year with $360 million in cash and inventory down 26 per cent,” Dillard's chief executive officer William Dillard, II said in a press release.
Cost of sales for the period was down to $1,082.1 million ($1,349.4 million). Selling, general and administrative expenses were $335.8 million ($458.6 million).
