Garry Ridge

Thank you, Wendy. Good day, and thanks for joining us for today's conference call. Jay, Steve, Wendy and I are once again dialing in from our respective homes. We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy in these challenging times. Today, we reported net sales of $111.6 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, up 5% compared to the fourth quarter of last year. Translation of our foreign subsidiary results from their functional currencies to the U.S. dollar did not have a meaningful impact on the sales in the fourth quarter. For the full fiscal year, net sales were $408.5 million, down 4% compared to fiscal year 2019. Translation of our foreign subsidiaries results from their functional currencies to the U.S. dollar had an unfavorable impact on sales in the full fiscal year.

On a constant currency basis, net sales would have only declined 2% for the full year. In a few moments, Steve will share with you the drivers of the revenue growth we experienced in the fourth quarter as well
