Mohawk Industries reports wider quarterly loss on $876 million one-time charge

(Reuters) - Mohawk Industries reported a wider third-quarter loss on Thursday, as the home floorings manufacturer took a one-time charge of $876 million after a review of its goodwill and intangible asset balances.

Demand for home remodeling in the U.S. has declined as higher borrowing costs and dwindling household savings squeeze consumer spending. Overall housing supply also remains constrained, with residential construction activity subdued this year.

"Our industry faces a greater impact from these pressures than other sectors given that most flooring purchases can be deferred," said Chairman and CEO Jeff Lorberbaum.

The tough macro-economic conditions, higher discount rates and a decline in its market cap this year prompted the company to conduct a review.

Mohawk Industries reported a net loss of $760 million, or $11.94 per share, in the quarter ended September 30 compared with a net loss of $534 million, or $8.40 per share, a year earlier.

The company reported adjusted earnings per share of $2.72, down from $3.34 a year earlier, but beat analysts' estimates of $2.65.

Revenue for the quarter fell 8% from a year earlier to $2.8 billion in constant currency. However, it beat analysts' expectations of $2.74 billion, as per LSEG data.

Shares of the company fell 5.37% in trading after the bell before shedding losses to gain about 1%.
