Thank you, Julie Ann. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us on the call today. Before I begin my prepared remarks, I'd like to thank our Executive Chairman of the Board and my predecessor and friend, Todd Cleveland, for his leadership and mentorship over the years, both to me personally and to our management team and all of our 7,500-plus team members. I've been fortunate to witness and be a part of Todd's legacy during the past 13 years that he has been a member of the Patrick family, and I'm truly humbled and inspired by his strength and passion for our company, our customers, our communities, our team members and the industries we serve. I look forward to continuing to work with Todd and our Board of Directors, our management team and all of our talented and dedicated team members as we continue our journey together. 2019 marked a year of adaptation and execution for us as it was filled with headwinds, which included significant volatility in our primary markets, fluctuations in commodity prices, weather-related issues that impacted demand in both the RV and Marine markets as well as the ability to set homes in the manufactured housing market and interest rate volatility. In light of these headwinds, we are pleased with our fourth quarter and full year performance and ability to flexibly and nimbly manage our business.
Fourth quarter revenues of $550 million increased 3% versus the prior year despite double-digit wholesale shipment declines due to inventory recalibration in our leisure lifestyle markets. Additionally, we continue to grow organically and increased our content per unit in each market sector on a year-over-year basis. Our fourth quarter 2019 net income was approximately $20 million or $0.86 per diluted share. Full year revenues increased 3%
