Net income was $50.3 million or $0.20 per share in the December quarter, compared to $141.5 million or $0.54 per share in the corresponding period of 2021.

The bottom-line performance was negatively impacted by a 32% fall in net sales to $247.5 million. The decrease is mainly due to lower sales volume, reflecting the impact of the temporary suspension of our operations in Monterrey, Mexico, and the softness in graphite electrode demand.
