For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, LCI reported net sales of US$525.8m, reflecting a -16% year-over-year decrease from the $629m in revenues earned during the second quarter of 2019. Cost of sales for the period also declined YOY, reported at $397m compared to $480m for the previous Q2. This allowed the company to generate a gross profit of $128.7m for the quarter, down 13.3% from the $148.6m in gross profit reported for the previous second quarter.

Operating profit for the second quarter of 2020 was reported as $20.7m, compared to $65.6m for the previous Q2 for a YOY decline of 68.4%. Net income for the quarter was reported as $13.1m, down 72.4% YOY from the $47.5m in Net Income reported for Q2 2019….
