“Third quarter earnings improvements were led by on-going gains at Dorel Home Furnishings, higher gross margins at Dorel Juvenile, as well as a strong performance at Pacific Cycle and reduced bicycle industry discounting at Cycling Sports Group (CSG). In addition, the progress during the first nine months in all of our businesses has bolstered our financial position. Year-over-year nine month cash flows from operating activities improved by US$93.5 million, due primarily to enhanced management of our inventory levels. This has resulted in a significant strengthening in our financial position,” commented Martin Schwartz, Dorel President and CEO.
