Small appliance maker Applica Incorporated announced that it anticipates it will record a net loss in the first quarter of between U.S. $22 million and $23 million.

The company says the larger-than-estimated loss is primarily the result of a write-down of inventory related to lower-than-anticipated consumer demand, increased product warranty returns and related expenses, and additional losses in the Mexico manufacturing operations.

Applica will hold a conference call on April 28, 2005 at 11 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, to discuss its first-quarter results and trends in operations.
