Daktronics, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

Brookings, S.D., February 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics, Inc. (NASDAQ - DAKT) today reported fiscal 2020 third quarter net sales of $127.7 million, operating loss of $9.2 million, and net loss of $12.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to net sales of $115.1 million, operating loss of $7.5 million, and net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2019Fiscal 2020 third quarter orders were $135.0 million, compared to $135.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Product order backlog at the end of the fiscal 2020 third quarter was $187 million, compared to $168 million a year earlier and $182 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2020.(1)

For the nine months ended February 1, 2020, net sales were $482.8 million, operating income was $3.3 million, and net income was $1.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share. This compares to net sales of $441.9 million, operating income of $5.5 million, and net income of $9.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share for the same period in fiscal 2019.

Fiscal 2020 is a 53-week year; therefore, the nine months ended February 1, 2020 contains operating results for 40 weeks while the nine months ended January 26, 2019 contains operating results for 39 weeks. Sales, orders and other results of operations were impacted due to the additional week of operations.

Cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of fiscal 2020 was $6.2 million, compared with cash provided by operating activities of $32.2 million in the same period last year. Free cash flow, defined as cash provided by or used in operating activities less net investment in property and equipment, was a negative $7.2 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2020, as compared to a positive $18.4 million for the same period of fiscal 2019. Net investment in property and equipment was $13.4 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2020, as compared to $13.8 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2019. Cash, restricted cash, and marketable securities at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2020 were $42.1 million, which compares to $70.9 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2019 and $62.1 million at the end of fiscal 2019.

Orders for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 were relatively flat as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Orders increased in the High School Park and Recreation and Transportation business units, decreased in the Commercial and Live Events business units, and remained relatively flat in the International business unit. The volatility of order timing for large projects and global accounts varies according to the needs of the customer and is the primary cause of the change in order volume.

Net sales increased by 10.9 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Net sales increased in the Live Events and International business units, decreased in the Commercial and Transportation business units, and remained relatively flat in the High School Park and Recreation business unit. The higher level of backlog at the beginning of the quarter and customer delivery schedules translated to the increase in sales for the quarter.

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 19.2 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to 21.6 percent a year earlier. Operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 were $33.6 million, compared to $32.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Operating loss as a percent of sales for the quarter was 7.2 percent as compared to 6.5 percent during the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

The effective tax rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was negative 37.9 percent compared to an effective tax rate of 55.4 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The quarterly change in the effective tax rate was caused by discrete one-time impacts of $3.3 million recognized in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 and the change in the estimated effective tax rate for fiscal 2020. The estimated effective tax rate for fiscal 2020 of 51.6 percent is the result of the expected net taxes and credits being higher as a proportion of expected pre-tax earnings.

Sheila Anderson, chief financial officer and treasurer noted, "Our third quarter sales and profit levels are lighter than other quarters due to the seasonality of our sports business, construction cycles, and the reduced number of production days due to holidays in the quarter. Gross profit as a percent of sales decreased for the quarter primarily due to adverse impacts of a project with cost overruns, tariff related expenses, and change in project mix. We recognized more sales relating to multimillion-dollar projects which generally earn lower gross margins due to increased competitive bidding. Our overall warranty as a percentage of sales was 1.3% for the quarter as compared to 1.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Operating expenses increased in dollars primarily due to personnel related costs.

Year-to-date cash provided from operations differed as compared to last year primarily due to short-term and seasonal changes in cash outflows and inflows to deliver orders and due to lower net income. Cash can vary based on order timing and levels, varying contractual payment terms from customers, and payments for inventory to meet delivery and installation schedules. Cash and marketable securities have decreased on a year-to-date basis due to these differences and continued investment in capital improvements and dividend payments. We expect a total of $23 million in capital improvements for expansion of production and information system capabilities for the fiscal year."

Reece Kurtenbach, chairman, president and chief executive officer stated, "We successfully grew sales and held operating expenses as a percent of sales this quarter, though not sufficiently to cover fixed ongoing costs and strategic investments. We remain confident in our strategies to improve operations, which will lead to long-term profitable growth."

Outlook
Kurtenbach added, "Sales opportunities in the marketplace are growing, resulting in an increase in active project bids this year as compared to last year in all of our business units. We are optimistic in our ability to convert these bids into orders and grow our business in the coming year. In the near-term, orders and sales timing may be impacted by the coronavirus situation ("COVID-19") potentially causing customer order delays and supply chain disruptions.

The dynamic audio-visual communication systems market is expected to grow over the long-term for both traditional and narrow-pixel pitch (NPP) applications. We are seeing growth in our current markets, as well as access to new markets with increased capabilities of NPP displays. To capitalize on this opportunity, we continue to invest in new technologies and market development. Our teams are engaging in operational improvements to reduce the effort and fulfillment costs and are working on initiatives to enhance the quality of the experience for both customers and employees. These activities strengthen our abilities and support our optimism that we will continue to grow, profitably, over the coming years."
