    • For FY 2015, SWHC lowers EPS guidance to $0.66-$0.70 from prior $0.89-$0.94 vs. $0.89 consensus, and reduces its revenue outlook to $504M-$508M from prior $530M-$540M vs. $531M consensus.
    • SWHC blames the 22% Y/Y decline in FQ2 revenues on lower consumer demand and competitors' excess inventory at distributor and retailer locations, which followed an earlier surge period when consumers purchased firearms in anticipation of possible restrictive regulations.
