Q3 non-GAAP EPS of $0.90 misses by $0.07, and revenue of $207.2M (-7.2% Y/Y) misses by $10.92M.

An estimated $5.3M of product was not shipped in the quarter due to Hurricane Ian. Sales included $2.9M in revenue from acquisitions, the company said in its earnings release.

Net income was down 27% on a yearly basis to $20.4M.
Adjusted EBITDA was down 14% to $48.0M.
Cash and cash equivalents at Oct. 1 were $36.8M, down $4.5M from Q2-end and up $8.3M from 2021-end.

"We are cautious given inflation, the decline in consumer spending. China restrictions. The war in Ukraine and FX high inflation may continue to slow the global economy and is also causing a pullback in consumer spending, which is directly impacting the health and wellness market," CFO Tricia Fulton said during the Q3 earnings call.
