NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

June 30, 2012

(Unaudited)

 

(1) SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

CSS Industries, Inc. (collectively with its subsidiaries, “CSS” or the “Company”) has prepared the consolidated financial statements included herein pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company has condensed or omitted certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the statements include all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) required for a fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.

On September 9, 2011, the Company and its Cleo Inc (“Cleo”) subsidiary sold the Christmas gift wrap portion of Cleo’s business and certain Cleo assets relating to such business, including certain equipment, contract rights, customer lists, intellectual property and other intangible assets to Impact Innovations, Inc. (“Impact”). Cleo’s remaining assets, including accounts receivable and inventory, were excluded from the sale. Various prior period amounts contained in these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include assets, liabilities and cash flows related to Cleo’s Christmas gift wrap business which are presented as current assets and liabilities of discontinued operations. The results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, as well as the accompanying notes, reflect the historical operations of Cleo’s Christmas gift wrap business as discontinued operations. The discussions in this quarterly report are presented on the basis of continuing operations, unless otherwise noted.

The Company’s fiscal year ends on March 31. References to a particular fiscal year refer to the fiscal year ending in March of that year. For example, “fiscal 2013” refers to the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.

Nature of Business

CSS is a consumer products company primarily engaged in the design, manufacture, procurement, distribution and sale of seasonal and all occasion social expression products, principally to mass market retailers. These all occasion and seasonal products include decorative ribbons and bows, boxed greeting cards, gift tags, gift wrap, gift bags, gift boxes, gift card holders, decorative tissue paper, decorations, classroom exchange Valentines, floral accessories, Halloween masks, costumes, make-up and novelties, Easter egg dyes and novelties, craft and educational products, stickers, memory books, stationery, journals, notecards, infant and wedding photo albums, scrapbooks, and other gift items that commemorate life’s celebrations. The seasonal nature of CSS’ business has historically resulted in lower sales levels and operating losses in the first and fourth quarters and comparatively higher sales levels and operating profits in the second and third quarters of the Company’s fiscal year, which ends March 31, thereby causing significant fluctuations in the quarterly results of operations of the Company.

Foreign Currency Translation and Transactions

Translation adjustments are charged or credited to a separate component of stockholders’ equity. Gains and losses on foreign currency transactions are not material and are included in other expense, net in the consolidated statements of operations.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Judgments and assessments of uncertainties are required in applying the Company’s accounting policies in many areas. Such estimates pertain to revenue, the valuation of inventory and accounts receivable, the assessment of the recoverability of goodwill and other intangible and long-lived assets, income tax accounting, the valuation of stock-based awards and resolution of litigation and other proceedings. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets including Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued updated authoritative guidance in September 2011 to amend previous guidance on the annual and interim testing of goodwill for impairment; the guidance became effective for the Company at the beginning of its 2013 fiscal year. The guidance provides entities with the option of first assessing qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If it is determined, on the basis of the qualitative factors, that the fair value of the reporting unit is more likely than not less than the carrying amount, the two step impairment test would still be required. The first step of the test compares the fair value of a reporting unit to its carrying amount, including goodwill, as of the date of the test. The Company uses a dual approach to determine the fair value of its reporting units including both a market approach and an income approach. We believe the use of multiple valuation techniques results in a more accurate indicator of the fair value of each reporting unit. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, the second step is performed. The second step compares the carrying amount of the goodwill to the implied fair value of the goodwill. If the implied fair value of the goodwill is less than the carrying amount of the goodwill, an impairment loss would be reported. Annual impairment tests are performed by the Company in the fourth quarter of each year. The adoption of this updated authoritative guidance had no impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements. See Note 6 for further information on goodwill and other intangible assets.

Other indefinite lived intangible assets consist primarily of tradenames which are also required to be tested annually. The fair value of the Company’s tradenames is calculated using a “relief from royalty payments” methodology. Long-lived assets (including property, plant and equipment), except for goodwill and indefinite lived intangible assets, are reviewed for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset group may not be recoverable. If such asset group is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset group exceeds the fair value of the asset group.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue from product sales when the goods are shipped, title and risk of loss have been transferred to the customer and collection is reasonably assured. Provisions for returns, allowances, rebates to customers and other adjustments are provided in the same period that the related sales are recorded.

Net Loss Per Common Share

Due to the Company’s net losses in the first quarter, potentially dilutive securities of 269,000 shares and 938,000 shares as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, consisting of outstanding stock options and non-vested restricted stock units, were excluded from the diluted loss per share calculation due to their antidilutive effect.

 

(2) DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND RESTRUCTURING CHARGES

On May 24, 2011, the Company approved a plan to close its Cleo manufacturing facility located in Memphis, Tennessee. The Company exited the Memphis facility in December 2011. In connection with this restructuring

plan which was completed by March 31, 2012, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $6,749,000 during fiscal 2012 primarily related to severance of 433 employees and facility closure costs. Additionally, there was a non-cash reduction of $177,000 related to severance that was less than originally estimated, which was included in restructuring expenses in fiscal 2012. During the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the Company made payments of $425,000 primarily for costs related to severance. Additionally during the first quarter of fiscal 2013, there was a reduction in the restructuring accrual of $29,000 for costs that were less than originally estimated. As of June 30, 2012, the remaining liability of $376,000 was classified in current liabilities of discontinued operations in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet and will be paid through fiscal 2013.

On September 9, 2011, the Company sold the Cleo Christmas gift wrap business and certain Cleo assets to Impact. Impact acquired the Christmas gift wrap portion of Cleo’s business and certain of Cleo’s assets relating to such business, including certain equipment, contract rights, customer lists, intellectual property and other intangible assets. Cleo’s remaining assets, including accounts receivable and inventory, were excluded from the sale. Cleo retained the right and obligation to fulfill all customer orders for Cleo Christmas gift wrap products for Christmas 2011. The purchase price was $7,500,000, of which $2,000,000 was paid to Cleo in cash at closing. The remainder of the purchase price was paid through the issuance by Impact of an unsecured subordinated promissory note, which provides for quarterly payments of interest at 7% and principal payments as follows: $500,000 on March 1, 2012; $2,500,000 on March 1, 2013; and all remaining principal and interest on March 1, 2014. All interest payments to date and the $500,000 principal payment due on March 1, 2012 were paid when due. As of June 30, 2012, $2,500,000 of this note receivable was recorded in other current assets and $2,500,000 of this note receivable was recorded in other long term assets in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.

The effective tax rates used to determine income tax expense of discontinued operations were based on the statutory tax rates in effect during the respective periods, adjusted for permanent differences related to the assets and liabilities not being transferred to Impact. The effective tax rates used in the calculations for each period were as follows:

(3) BUSINESS RESTRUCTURING

On March 27, 2012, the Company combined the operations of its Berwick Offray and Paper Magic subsidiaries in order to drive sales growth by providing stronger management oversight and by reallocating sales and marketing resources in a more strategic manner. Involuntary termination benefits offered to terminated employees were in accordance with the applicable terms of the Company’s applicable pre-existing severance plans. As part of the restructuring plan, the Company recorded a restructuring reserve of $706,000 related to employee severance charges in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. During the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the Company made payments of $185,000 for costs related to severance. Additionally during the first quarter of fiscal 2013, there was a reduction in the restructuring accrual of $50,000 for costs that were less than originally estimated. The remaining liability of $355,000 and $590,000 is classified in other accrued liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012. This amount will be paid in fiscal 2013.

(4) STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

2004 Equity Compensation Plan

Under the terms of the Company’s 2004 Equity Compensation Plan (“2004 Plan”), the Human Resources Committee (“Committee”) of the Board of Directors (“Board”) may grant incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options, restricted stock grants, stock appreciation rights, stock bonuses and other awards to officers and other employees. Grants under the 2004 Plan may be made through August 3, 2014. The term of each grant is at the discretion of the Committee, but in no event greater than ten years from the date of grant. The Committee has discretion to determine the date or dates on which granted options become exercisable. Service-based options outstanding as of June 30, 2012 become exercisable at the rate of 25% per year commencing one year after the date of grant. Market-based stock options outstanding as of such date will become exercisable only if certain market conditions and service requirements are satisfied, and the date(s) on which they become exercisable will depend on the period in which such market conditions and service requirements are met, if at all. Market-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) outstanding at June 30, 2012 will vest only if certain market conditions and service requirements have been met, and the date(s) on which they vest will depend on the period in which such market conditions and service requirements are met, if at all. Subject to limited exceptions, service-based RSUs outstanding as of June 30, 2012 vest at the rate of 50% of the shares underlying the grant on each of the third and fourth anniversaries of the grant date.

On May 24, 2011, our Board approved an amendment to the 2004 Plan to reduce the number of shares of the Company’s common stock authorized for issuance under the 2004 Plan by 500,000 shares. As a result of this reduction, the 2004 Plan now provides that 1,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock may be issued as grants under the 2004 Plan. Prior to this amendment, the 2004 Plan provided that 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock could be issued as grants under the 2004 Plan. At June 30, 2012, 759,657 shares were available for grant under the 2004 Plan.

The fair value of each market-based stock option and each market-based RSU granted under the above plans for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was estimated on the date of grant using Monte Carlo simulation. The fair value of each service-based RSU granted during the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was estimated on the day of grant based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock reduced by the present value of the expected dividend stream during the vesting period using the risk-free interest rate. There were no service-based RSUs granted during the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

The weighted average fair value of stock options granted during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $7.27 and $6.88, respectively. The weighted average fair value of restricted stock units granted during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $14.78 and $16.25.

2011 Stock Option Plan for Non-Employee Directors

Under the terms of the Company’s 2011 Stock Option Plan for Non-Employee Directors (“2011 Plan”), non-qualified stock options to purchase up to 150,000 shares of common stock are available for grant to non-employee directors at exercise prices of not less than fair market value of the underlying common stock on the date of grant. Under the 2011 Plan, options to purchase 4,000 shares of the Company’s common stock are granted automatically to each non-employee director on the last day that the Company’s common stock is traded in November of each year from 2011 to 2015. Each option will expire five years after the date the option is granted and options may be exercised at the rate of 25% per year commencing one year after the date of grant. At June 30, 2012, 130,000 shares were available for grant under the 2011 Plan.

As of June 30, 2012, there was $1,985,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock option awards granted under the Company’s equity incentive plans which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.7 years. As of June 30, 2012, there was $2,380,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested RSUs granted under the Company’s equity incentive plans which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.7 years.

Compensation cost related to stock options and RSUs recognized in operating results (included in selling, general and administrative expenses) was $410,000 and $463,000 in the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

(5) DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company enters into foreign currency forward contracts in order to reduce the impact of certain foreign currency fluctuations on sales denominated in a foreign currency. Derivatives are not used for trading or speculative activities. Firmly committed transactions and the related receivables may be hedged with forward exchange contracts. Gains and losses arising from foreign currency forward contracts are recorded in other expense (income), net as offsets of gains and losses resulting from the underlying hedged transactions. As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, the notional amount of open foreign currency forward contracts was $3,919,000 and $2,522,000, respectively. The related unrealized gain was $51,000 and $1,000 at June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. We believe we do not have significant counterparty credit risks as of June 30, 2012.

The following table shows the fair value of the foreign currency forward contracts designated as hedging instruments and included in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 (in thousands):

(6) GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLES

The Company performs an annual impairment test of the carrying amount of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets in the fourth quarter of its fiscal year. Additionally, the Company would perform its impairment testing at an interim date if events or circumstances indicate that goodwill or intangibles might be impaired. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, there have not been any such events.

Under a stock repurchase program authorized by the Company’s Board of Directors, the Company repurchased 101,706 shares of the Company’s common stock for $1,923,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2012. There were no repurchases of the Company’s common stock by the Company during the three months ended June 30, 2011. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had 123,084 shares remaining available for repurchase under the Board’s authorization.

 

(8) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

CSS and its subsidiaries are involved in ordinary, routine legal proceedings that are not considered by management to be material. In the opinion of Company counsel and management, the ultimate liabilities resulting from such legal proceedings will not materially affect the consolidated financial position of the Company or its results of operations or cash flows.

 

(9) FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

The Company uses certain derivative financial instruments as part of its risk management strategy to reduce foreign currency risk. The Company recorded all derivatives on the condensed consolidated balance sheet at fair value based on quotes obtained from financial institutions as of June 30, 2012.

The Company maintains a Nonqualified Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan for highly compensated employees and invests assets to mirror the obligations under this Plan. The invested funds are maintained at a third party financial institution in the name of CSS and are invested in publicly traded mutual funds. The Company maintains separate accounts for each participant to reflect deferred contribution amounts and the related gains or losses on such deferred amounts. The investments are included in other current assets and the related liability is recorded as deferred compensation and included in other long-term obligations in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The fair value of the investments is based on the market price of the mutual funds as of June 30, 2012.

The Company maintains two life insurance policies in connection with deferred compensation arrangements with two former executives. The cash surrender value of the policies is recorded in other long-term assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and is based on quotes obtained from the insurance company as of June 30, 2012.

To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques, into a three-level fair value hierarchy. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within different levels of the hierarchy, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

 

13


Table of Contents

The Company’s recurring assets and liabilities recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet are categorized based on the inputs to the valuation techniques as follows:

Level 1 – Financial assets and liabilities whose values are based on unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in an active market that the Company has the ability to access.

Level 2 – Financial assets and liabilities whose values are based on quoted prices in markets that are not active or model inputs that are observable either directly or indirectly for substantially the full term of the asset or liability. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in non-active markets and pricing models whose inputs are observable for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

Level 3 – Financial assets and liabilities whose values are based on prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.

The following table presents the Company’s fair value hierarchy for those financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis in its condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012 (in thousands):

Table of Contents

Cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses are reflected at carrying value in the condensed consolidated balance sheets as such amounts are a reasonable estimate of their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

The carrying value of the Company’s note receivable is a reasonable estimate of its fair value as the terms of the note reflect market conditions for similar entities.

Nonrecurring Fair Value Measurements

The Company’s nonfinancial assets which are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis include property, plant and equipment, goodwill, intangible assets and certain other assets. These assets are not measured at fair value on a recurring basis; however, they are subject to fair value adjustments in certain circumstances, such as when there is evidence that impairment may exist. In making the assessment of impairment, recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of the asset group to future net cash flows estimated by the Company to be generated by such assets. If such asset group is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset group exceeds the fair value of the asset group. Assets to be disposed of are recorded at the lower of their carrying value or estimated net realizable value. As of June 30, 2012, there were no indications or circumstances indicating that an impairment might exist.

 

(10) RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (“ASU 2011-05”) which requires an entity to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. This standard eliminates the option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of changes in equity. In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-12, “Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05” (“ASU 2011-12”). The amendments in ASU 2011-12 defer the requirement to present reclassification adjustments for each component of accumulated other comprehensive income in both net income and other comprehensive income on the face of the financial statements. The amendments in ASU 2011-12 are effective at the same time as ASU 2011-05 so that entities will not be required to comply with the presentation requirements in ASU 2011-05 that ASU 2011-12 is deferring. The amendments in ASU 2011-12 are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. As this standard impacts presentation only, the adoption of ASU 2011-05, as amended by ASU 2011-12, did not an impact the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, “Testing Goodwill for Impairment” (“ASU 2011-08”), which amends existing guidance by giving an entity the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If this is the case, a more detailed two-step goodwill impairment test will need to be performed which is used to identify potential goodwill impairments and to measure the amount of goodwill impairment losses to be recognized, if any. ASU 2011-08 is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of ASU 2011-08 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-11, “Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities” (“ASU 2011-11”). This update is intended to improve the comparability of statements of financial position prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and IFRS, requiring both gross and net presentation of offsetting assets and liabilities. The new requirements are effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. As this guidance only affects disclosures, the adoption of this standard will not have an impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

CSS INDUSTRIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL

CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

STRATEGIC OVERVIEW

Approximately 54% of the Company’s prior year sales were attributable to all occasion with the remainder attributable to seasonal (Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter and Halloween) products. The Company believes that its all occasion craft, gift card holder, stickers, stationery and memory product lines have higher inherent growth potential due to higher market growth rates. Further, the Company’s all occasion craft, gift card holder, stickers, stationery and floral product lines have higher inherent growth potential due to CSS’ relatively low current market share. The Company continues to pursue sales growth in these and other areas.

Seasonal products are sold primarily to mass market retailers, and the Company has relatively high market share in many of these categories. Most of these markets have shown little growth and in some cases have declined in recent years, and the Company continues to confront significant price pressure as its competitors source certain products from overseas and its customers increase direct sourcing from overseas factories. Increasing customer concentration has augmented their bargaining power, which has also contributed to price pressure.

The Company has taken several measures to respond to sales volume, cost and price pressures. The Company believes it continues to have strong core Christmas product offerings which has allowed it to compete effectively in this competitive market. In addition, the Company is aggressively pursuing new product initiatives related to seasonal, craft and all occasion products, including new licensed and non-licensed product offerings. CSS continually invests in product and packaging design and product knowledge to assure that it can continue to provide unique added value to its customers. In addition, CSS maintains a showroom in Hong Kong as well as a purchasing office to be able to provide alternatively sourced products at competitive prices. CSS continually evaluates the efficiency and productivity of its North American production and distribution facilities and of its back office operations to maintain its competitiveness. In the last nine fiscal years, the Company has closed six manufacturing plants and seven warehouses totaling 2,680,000 square feet. Additionally, in the last four fiscal years, the Company has combined the operations of its Berwick Offray and Paper Magic subsidiaries in order to drive sales growth by providing stronger management oversight and by reallocating sales and marketing resources in a more strategic manner; consolidated its human resources, accounts receivable, accounts payable and payroll functions into a combined back office operation; and completed the implementation of a phase of the Company’s enterprise resource planning systems standardization project.

Historically, significant revenue growth at CSS has come through acquisitions. Management anticipates that it will continue to consider acquisitions as a strategy to stimulate further growth.

On September 9, 2011, the Company and its Cleo Inc (“Cleo”) subsidiary sold the Christmas gift wrap portion of Cleo’s business and certain of Cleo’s assets relating to such business, including certain equipment, contract rights, customer lists, intellectual property and other intangible assets to Impact Innovations, Inc. (“Impact”). Cleo’s remaining assets, including accounts receivable and inventory, were excluded from the sale. Cleo retained the right and obligation to fulfill all customer orders for Cleo Christmas gift wrap products for Christmas 2011. The purchase price was $7,500,000, of which $2,000,000 was paid to Cleo in cash at closing. The remainder of the purchase price was paid through the issuance by Impact of an unsecured subordinated promissory note, which provides for quarterly payments of interest at 7% and principal payments as follows: $500,000 on March 1, 2012; $2,500,000 on March 1, 2013; and all remaining principal and interest on March 1, 2014. All interest payments to date and the $500,000 principal payment due on March 1, 2012 were paid when due. The results of operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 reflect the historical operations of Cleo Christmas gift wrap business as discontinued operations and the discussion herein is presented on the basis of continuing operations, unless otherwise stated.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

The significant accounting policies of the Company are described in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. Judgments and estimates of uncertainties are required in applying the Company’s accounting policies in many areas. Following are some of the areas requiring significant judgments and estimates: revenue; the assessment of the recoverability of goodwill and other intangible and long-lived assets; the valuation of inventory and accounts receivable; income tax accounting; the valuation of stock-based awards and resolution of litigation and other proceedings. There have been no material changes to the critical accounting policies affecting the application of those accounting policies as noted in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Seasonality

The seasonal nature of CSS’ business has historically resulted in lower sales levels and operating losses in the first and fourth quarters and comparatively higher sales levels and operating profits in the second and third quarters of the Company’s fiscal year, which ends March 31, thereby causing significant fluctuations in the quarterly results of operations of the Company.

Three Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2011

Sales for the three months ended June 30, 2012 increased 12% to $61,067,000 from $54,569,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to earlier shipments of all occasion and Halloween products compared to the same quarter in the prior year.

Cost of sales, as a percentage of sales, decreased to 72% in the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to 74% in the three months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to lower commodity costs and other input costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses of $18,570,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2012 decreased from $19,559,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to reduced payroll and related costs.

Interest income, net was $53,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to interest expense, net of $43,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2011. The change was due to interest income received on the note receivable from Impact during the three months ended June 30, 2012. This note receivable was not outstanding in the same period in the prior year.

The loss from continuing operations before income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,333,000 compared to $5,484,000 in 2011. The decrease in the loss from continuing operations before income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was primarily due to the impact of higher sales volume and lower payroll related expenses.

Income taxes, as a percentage of income before taxes, were 35% and 37% in the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

The loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $37,000 compared to $4,122,000 in 2011, as the primary operating activity of the discontinued operation ceased in December 2011.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At June 30, 2012, the Company had working capital of $160,691,000 and stockholders’ equity of $238,994,000. The increase in inventories and other current liabilities from March 31, 2012 was primarily a result of the normal seasonal inventory build necessary for the fiscal 2013 shipping season. The decrease in stockholders’ equity from March 31, 2012 was primarily attributable to the first quarter net loss, treasury stock repurchases and payments of cash dividends.

The Company relies primarily on cash generated from its operations and seasonal borrowings to meet its liquidity requirements. Historically, a significant portion of the Company’s revenues have been seasonal with approximately 70% of sales recognized in the second and third quarters. The sale of the Cleo Christmas gift wrap portion of Cleo’s business will decrease the Company’s seasonal borrowing needs. As payment for sales of Christmas related products is usually not received until just before or just after the holiday selling season in accordance with general industry practice, short-term borrowing needs increase in the second and third quarters, peaking prior to Christmas and dropping thereafter. Seasonal financing requirements are met under a revolving credit facility with two banks. Reflecting the seasonality of the Company’s business, the maximum credit available at any one time under the credit facility (“Commitment Level”) adjusts to $50,000,000 from February to June (“Low Commitment Period”), $100,000,000 from July to October (“Medium Commitment Period”) and $150,000,000 from November to January (“High Commitment Period”) in each respective year over the term of the facility. The Company has the option to increase the Commitment Level during part of any Low Commitment Period from $50,000,000 to an amount not less than $62,500,000 and not in excess of $125,000,000; provided, however, that the Commitment Level must remain at $50,000,000 for at least three consecutive months during each Low Commitment Period. The Company has the option to increase the Commitment Level during all or part of any Medium Commitment Period from $100,000,000 to an amount not in excess $125,000,000. Fifteen days prior written notice is required for the Company to exercise an option to increase the Commitment Level with respect to a particular Low Commitment Period or Medium Commitment Period. The Company may exercise an option to increase the Commitment Level no more than three times each calendar year. This facility is due to expire on March 17, 2016. This financing facility is available to fund the Company’s seasonal borrowing needs and to provide the Company with sources of capital for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions as permitted under the revolving credit facility. At June 30, 2012, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The Company is in compliance with all financial debt covenants as of June 30, 2012. Based on its current operating plan, the Company believes its sources of available capital are adequate to meet its future cash needs for at least the next 12 months.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company’s letter of credit commitments are as follows (in thousands):

The Company has a reimbursement obligation with respect to stand-by letters of credit that guarantee the funding of workers compensation claims. The Company has no financial guarantees with any third parties or related parties other than its subsidiaries.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company is committed to purchase approximately $586,000 of electric power from a vendor through December 31, 2012. The Company believes the minimum commodity purchases under this agreement are well within the Company’s annual commodity requirements. The Company is also committed to pay guaranteed minimum royalties attributable to sales of certain licensed products. Reference is made to contractual obligations included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. There have been no significant changes to contractual obligations.

In the ordinary course of business, the Company enters into arrangements with vendors to purchase merchandise in advance of expected delivery. These purchase orders do not contain any significant termination payments or other penalties if cancelled.

LABOR RELATIONS

With the exception of the bargaining unit at the ribbon manufacturing facility in Hagerstown, Maryland, which totaled approximately 96 employees as of June 30, 2012, CSS employees are not represented by labor unions. Because of the seasonal nature of certain of its businesses, the number of production employees fluctuates during the year. The collective bargaining agreement with the labor union representing the Hagerstown-based production and maintenance employees remains in effect until December 31, 2014.
