The registrant has experienced business disruptions resulting from efforts to contain the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), including the vast mandated self-quarantines and closures of non-essential business throughout the United States and internationally. Nearly all stores have been directly and negatively impacted by public health measures taken in response to COVID-19, with nearly all locations experiencing reduced operations as a result of, among other things, modified business hours and store and mall closures. As a result, franchisees and licensees are not ordering products for their stores in line with historical amounts. This trend has negatively impacted, and is expected to continue to negatively impact, among other things, factory sales, retail sales and royalty and marketing fees.




Basic earnings per share decreased from $0.12 per share for the three months ended May 31, 2019 to a net loss of $(0.61) per share for the three months ended May 31, 2020. Revenues decreased 67.9% from $8.43 million for the three months ended May 31, 2019 to $2.70 million for the three months ended May 31, 2020. Operating income decreased from $946,000 for the three months ended May 31, 2019 to an operating loss of $(4.83) million for the three months ended May 31, 2020. Net income decreased from $712,000 for the three months ended May 31, 2019 to a net loss of $(3.67) million for the three months ended May 31, 2020. The decrease in revenue, operating income and net income was due primarily to the impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, including its impact on our operation and the operations of our franchised, licensed and Company-owned locations.
