Turning Point Brands reported net sales of $96.8 million in the third quarter that ended Sept. 30, up 16.1 percent from that in the comparable 2018 quarter.
Gross profit increased 18.2 percent to $42.8 million, but net income decreased $1.7 million to 6.3 million.
“Vaping headlines dramatically disrupted our third-party vaping distribution business starting in mid-August,” said Larry Wexler, president and CEO of
Turning Point Brands.
“While third-party vaping saw a step function down in the quarter, we produced strong quarterly performance in the smokeless and smoking segments. We
have proactively taken steps to address weakness in the third-party vaping distribution business.”
