VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ:VOXX) reported on Wednesday a miss in both its second quarter revenue and a wider net loss because of weak consumer sales, causing shares to tumble in afterhours trade.

The company said quarterly revenue came in at $108.9 million, sharply below the year-ago level of $161.01 million and the consensus expectation of $114 million.

The net loss widened to $22.5 million from a net loss last year in the same period of $19.8 million. 

Shares of the company dropped 9.4% to $4.91, having already lost 5.9% during the sesion to end Wednesday at $5.42.

"We expect to be profitable in the second half of our fiscal year, with additional savings to materialize as we realign and strengthen our foundation," Lavelle said.
