“Given the continuing chaotic supply chain environment, we are very pleased with the second quarter performance of our businesses. We are reporting substantially improved earnings while dealing with record increases in container freight rates and higher product costs in many categories. Demand for our products remained robust, but we were not able to fully satisfy consumer needs due to inventory shortages from a lack of ocean container availability. Dorel Sports had a remarkable quarter, again achieving record sales and earnings. Demand for bikes shows no signs of slowing and Cannondale’s models remain extremely popular in all markets. There has been continued improvement at Dorel Juvenile with gains in all geographies as consumers responded well to new products. Europe’s progress was limited only by COVID-related issues. Dorel Home revenue was significantly reduced as container issues were compounded by COVID shutdowns at suppliers in Vietnam and Malaysia. The segment still promises to be a solid performer as these conditions ease,” commented Dorel President & CEO, Martin Schwartz.
