The latest-quarter result included non-cash impairment charges of $64.2 million principally due to the under-performance of the Interface business in our Performance Materials segment.

Net sales decreased by $16.7 million or 7.9% to $193.3 million, compared to $209.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 primarily from lower sales in the Performance Materials and the Technical Nonwovens business segments.

Organic sales declined 8.3% on further weakening of demand for fiber based gasket solutions in the Interface business, lower demand for industrial filtration products in China and Europe, and lower domestic automotive volumes attributable to the General Motors strike.
