Conference Call with Accompanying Slide Presentation Scheduled Today at 4:30 PM ET
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (Nasdaq: CTHR) (the “Company”), a globally recognized fine jewelry company that specializes in moissanite and lab grown diamonds, reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2023 (“Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2023”). 

Management Commentary 
“While the challenging macroeconomic backdrop and weakened consumer outlook created significant headwinds on the jewelry and gemstone industry, and on the Company’s Q4 and fiscal year 2023 revenues, the Company’s cash position remained strong at $15.6 million.  The downward pricing pressure on moissanite and lab grown diamond impacted margins and, as a result, the Company recently reevaluated its supply chain, gemstone cost, pricing methodology and go-to-market strategy,” said Don O’Connell, President and CEO of the Company.  
“We firmly believe that our proactive measures, combined with our unwavering determination, will enable us to overcome the obstacles that we and the industry have encountered and pave the way for a brighter future. We are confident that our long-term business strategy will create long-term value for our shareholders.  As we continue to look ahead, we remain optimistic and excited about the future prospects of the Company and our commitment to the Company’s strategic initiatives,” concluded O’Connell.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (Nasdaq: CTHR) (the “Company”), a globally recognized fine jewelry company that specializes in moissanite and lab grown diamonds, reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2023 (“Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2023”). 

Management Commentary 

“While the challenging macroeconomic backdrop and weakened consumer outlook created significant headwinds on the jewelry and gemstone industry, and on the Company’s Q4 and fiscal year 2023 revenues, the Company’s cash position remained strong at $15.6 million.  The downward pricing pressure on moissanite and lab grown diamond impacted margins and, as a result, the Company recently reevaluated its supply chain, gemstone cost, pricing methodology and go-to-market strategy,” said Don O’Connell, President and CEO of the Company.  

“We firmly believe that our proactive measures, combined with our unwavering determination, will enable us to overcome the obstacles that we and the industry have encountered and pave the way for a brighter future. We are confident that our long-term business strategy will create long-term value for our shareholders.  As we continue to look ahead, we remain optimistic and excited about the future prospects of the Company and our commitment to the Company’s strategic initiatives,” concluded O’Connell.
