PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CSS Industries, Inc. (NYSE:CSS) announced today its results of operations for the three months ended June30, 2015, which is the first quarter of its fiscal year ending March31, 2016. Sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 decreased 8.3% to $44,228,000 from $48,257,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, primarily due to lower shipments of all occasion stationery and ribbon products. Based on new program placements and the expected seasonal shipments attributable to our acquisition of the business and assets of Hollywood Ribbon Industries, Inc. as announced on February 19, 2015, we currently expect sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 to exceed sales in the second quarter of the prior year, which is expected to largely offset the lower first quarter sales. We also incurred expenses in the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 which are expected to benefit the remainder of the year. The loss before income taxes for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $(4,738,000) compared to $(2,058,000) in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. The net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $(3,068,000), or $(0.33) per diluted share, versus $(1,325,000), or $(0.14) per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
