Daktronics, Inc. Announces Fiscal Year and Fourth Quarter 2022 Results
Brookings, S.D., June 8, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics, Inc. (NASDAQ - DAKT) today reported fiscal year and fourth quarter 2022 results.
Fiscal 2022 financial highlights:
Fiscal net sales of $611.0 million as a result of record orders and eased pandemic related site restrictions
Operating income of $4.0 million realized through headwinds of inflation in materials, personnel and freight related expenses
Product order backlog of $472 million(1), driven by record order volume of $846.1 million(1) and softer conversion to sales due to supply chain challenges
Reflection on FY2022
Reece Kurtenbach, chairman, president and chief executive officer, stated, "Thank you to our Daktronics team for increasing our capacity, adjusting to the uncertain and volatile supply chain conditions, and serving our customers as our industry recovers from the pandemics implications. Last year at this time, lockdowns were ending and people began gathering, renewing our customers' confidence in their business outlook and allowing our order volume to rebound from pandemic year lows. Daktronics products and solutions are chosen for our industry-leading value as highlighted by our all-time order record of $846 million for the year. Part of this record was attributed to being selected as the dynamic video system provider for the LA Clippers' new arena Intuit Dome and the Real Madrid Soccer Club’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. Customers also placed orders sooner than historical patterns to secure our manufacturing capacity for their future deliveries.

While orders have recovered from the pandemic the supply chain has not, which is a key reason our product backlog grew to $472 million. Our production levels have frequently been disrupted by varying supply chain challenges. Semiconductor parts, including integrated circuits and other components needed for production, have had sporadic availability because of global demand growth, allocations, slowed transportation, or continued Covid restrictions in certain geographies. These factors injected a level of disruption in our organization over the past year. To combat these headwinds and support timely deliveries, we have increased our investment in inventories, adjusted delivery expectations, redesigned product lines for other available material, and increased investment in automated manufacturing machinery. We responded to inflationary pressures by increasing pricing in all areas starting in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. We continue to monitor our supply chains and our marketplaces and adapt our pricing methodologies accordingly.

Outlook for FY2023 and Beyond
Kurtenbach added, “We expect dynamic and volatile supply chain and labor conditions to persist at least through the calendar year. As the environment evolves, we plan to adjust and adapt our pricing and our production schedules to best serve our customers. Our focus remains on strategically investing in new technologies and solutions, resilient supply chains, production capacity, and growing and serving our existing and new customers and markets. These strategies position us for long-term growth and increasing value for our stakeholders."

Fourth Quarter and Year to Date Results
Orders for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 67.0 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Each business unit's order volume grew through fiscal 2022 reflecting the recovery from the impact of the global pandemic among our customers. In Live Events, Commercial and International, we booked multimillion-dollar orders also contributing to the increases. Customers also placed orders sooner than historical order patterns in order to secure our manufacturing capacity for their future deliveries.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 increased by 38.8 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Net sales for fiscal 2022 increased 26.7 percent as compared to fiscal 2021. Sales growth was driven by the order recovery.
(1) Orders and backlog are not measures defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), and our methodology for determining orders and backlog may vary from the methodology used by other companies in determining their orders and backlog amounts. For more information related to backlog, see Part I, Item 1. Business of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 1, 2021.


Material supply and labor shortages are creating an increase in lead times and extending the timing of converting some orders to sales in the near-term. This has contributed to a larger than typical backlog.

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 18.5 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to 23.6 percent a year earlier and 19.1 percent for fiscal 2022, as compared to 25.0 percent a year earlier. The decline in gross profit percentage in fiscal 2022 is primarily related to the ongoing supply chain disruptions and inflationary challenges in materials, freight and personnel related costs, the difference in sales mix between periods, increases in warranty reserves for inflation and other factors experienced during fiscal 2021. Factors impacting gross profit in fiscal 2021 included a positive $2.1 million or 0.4 percent gross profit impact from a litigation claim reversal, and adjustments to operations capacity and governmental support programs because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were $30.3 million compared to $26.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 or an increase of 14.5 percent and $112.7 million for fiscal 2022 as compared to $103.5 million for fiscal 2021 or an increase of 8.9 percent. The increases were primarily personnel related expenses.

Operating margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was breakeven, compared to 1.0 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and operating income as a percentage of sales was 0.7 percent for fiscal 2022 as compared to 3.5 percent for fiscal 2021.

The effective tax rate for fiscal 2022 was 46.6 percent. The effective income tax rate for fiscal 2022 was impacted due to tax benefits from permanent tax credits offset by valuation allowances as well as other various permanent tax adjustments and state taxes with additional expense for prior year provision to return adjustments. The effective tax rate for fiscal 2021 was 22.3 percent resulting from the tax benefit of permanent tax credits and previous year provision to return adjustments offset by valuation allowances as well as other various permanent tax adjustments and state taxes.

Cash, restricted cash and marketable securities at the end of fiscal 2022 were $22.0 million, which compares to $80.4 million at the end of fiscal 2021. The change in cash use was created by growing operating assets for the growth of order activity, specifically for inventory and accounts receivable, and because of increased investments of capital assets for capacity, loans to affiliates, and the share repurchase program. Free cash flow, defined as cash provided by or used in operating activities less net investment in property and equipment, was a negative $46.5 million for fiscal 2022, as compared to a positive free cash flow of $61.5 million for fiscal 2021. Net investment in property and equipment was $19.5 million for fiscal 2022, as compared to $4.7 million for fiscal 2021.
