Delta Apparel Reports Record First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results Exceeding Expectations

Registers 17% Sales Growth to a Record $110.7 million

Diluted EPS of $0.51


DULUTH, GA., February 8, 2022 -- Delta Apparel, Inc. (NYSE American: DLA), a leading provider of core activewear and lifestyle apparel products, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 first quarter ended January 1, 2022.


Robert W. Humphreys, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We delivered strong first quarter results that not only exceeded our expectations but reached a first quarter record for our company with sales surpassing $110 million. Our bottom line results were also impressive as we registered EPS growth of nearly 300%. The fast start to the new fiscal year reflected broad-based performance across both our Delta and Salt Life business segments. Our one-of-a-kind vertically integrated supply chain with same-day ship at the piece level combined with our leading on-demand digital print platform in DTG2Go drove significant growth in our Delta Group segment. Salt Life’s expanding direct-to-consumer business combined with record wholesale shipments to our retail partners sets the stage for another year of significant organic growth for Delta Apparel.”


Humphreys continued, “Today’s retail environment remains highly fluid and Delta Apparel’s proven track record of success anchored on our unique business model servicing diversified sales channels using our vertically-integrated, flexible manufacturing platform positions us particularly well for many years of profitable growth. Our manufacturing output continues to reach record levels and we remain on track to bring additional capacity online during the second half of 2022 to meet our customers’ demand. Momentum for our Salt Life business has never been stronger. After building this business for over a decade, we are very excited to accelerate our direct-to-consumer business with the planned opening of at least seven new Salt Life branded retail stores in 2022.”


“I remain incredibly proud of our entire organization for their unwavering dedication to servicing our customers each and every day. We are off to an excellent start in the new fiscal year and we continue to believe our solid financial position and strong cash flows will allow us to fund our growth initiatives while also providing liquidity for other actions to increase shareholder value,” concluded Humphreys.


For the first quarter ended January 1, 2022:



Net sales were $110.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, an increase of 17% compared to the prior year first quarter net sales of $94.7 million. Net sales in the Delta Group segment grew 16% to $101.9 million compared to $87.6 million in the first fiscal quarter of the prior year. Salt Life segment net sales grew 24% from the first quarter of the prior year to $8.8 million.





Gross margins were 20.8%, contracting 60 basis points from 21.4% in the prior year, in line with expectations and largely driven by the pressure of inflationary costs in our manufacturing operations.



Selling, general, and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were $17.5 million, or 15.8% of sales, compared to $16.0 million, or 16.9% of sales, in the prior year first quarter. The increase in SG&A expenses of $1.5 million compared to prior year first quarter was driven by higher variable selling costs. SG&A benefited from leveraging fixed costs against higher sales in the first quarter as compared to the first quarter in the prior fiscal year.



Operating income increased to $5.9 million, or 5.3% of sales, compared to the prior year first quarter profit of $3.1 million, or 3.3% of sales.



Net income was $3.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, an increase of 313% compared to $0.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share for the same period in the prior year driven from higher operating profits and a lower tax rate.



Net inventory as of December 2021 was $183.1 million, an increase of $21.4 million from September 2021 and $34.6 million from December 2020. The improved inventory levels reflect increased production during the past year as the Company reached record manufacturing levels.



Total net debt, including capital lease financing and cash on hand, was $139.6 million at December 2021, an increase of $17.9 million from September 2021. Cash on hand and availability under the Company’s U.S. revolving credit facility totaled $33.0 million at December 2021, a $12.4 million decrease from September 2021 principally driven by investments in the business to support working capital needs.



The Company spent approximately $1.8 million on capital expenditures during the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $6.9 million during the prior year first quarter.


Share repurchase program:


In the first quarter of fiscal 2022 under the previously announced share repurchase program, the Company repurchased 74,232 shares for $2.1 million, bringing the total amount repurchased to $54.6 million. At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company had $5.4 million of remaining repurchase capacity under its existing authorization.
