Quoting Management: Dorvin D. Lively, executive vice president, chief financial officer and chief administrative officer of RadioShack Corp., said, “Overall, the fourth quarter continued to be impacted by challenges similar to those of the first three quarters of the year. The most significant contributing factor to the decline in our performance was the postpaid wireless business which saw a decline in transaction volume across the year, combined with a lower margin rate. However, I am pleased with the progress we have made in improving other aspects of our business. The gross margin rate for all of our business, excluding mobility, was flat with 2011 with significant improvement in our consumer electronics business. We have improved and strengthened our high-margin signature platform, which generated sales growth in each quarter of 2012. Additionally, our no-contract phone and tablet businesses generated sales and gross profit improvement.”
