Solid Q3 results. For Q3, the company reported revenue of $379.4 million, in-line with our estimate of $379.4 million. While revenues were down nearly $40 million year over year, the seasonal adj. EBITDA loss of $5.7 million was modestly better year over year. Notably, Q3 gross profit margins increased 300 basis points. The improved gross profit margin was driven by lower freight and commodity costs.

Improving revenue trends. While revenue trends are not recovering as fast as we originally hoped, there is substantial sequential quarterlyimprovement in ecommerce revenue, which was down 12% in Q1, down 6.6% in Q2 and a more moderate decrease of 4.9% in Q3. We expect that revenues will further moderate in fiscal Q4.
