MILLER INDUSTRIES REPORTS 2020 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

 

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., May 6, 2020/PRNewswire/ -- Miller Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MLR) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

For the first quarter of 2020, net sales were $176.1 million, a decrease of 10.7%, compared to $197.2 million for the first quarter of 2019. Net income in the first quarter of 2020 was $5.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, a decrease of 37.3%, compared to net income of $8.7 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

 

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $18.5 million, or 10.5% of net sales, compared to $22.6 million, or 11.5% of net sales, for the first quarter of 2019. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $11.0 million, or 6.2% of net sales, compared to $10.2 million, or 5.2% of net sales, in the prior year period.

 

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share, payable June 15, 2020 to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 8, 2020, the thirty-eighth consecutive quarter that the Company has paid a dividend.

 

Jeffrey I. Badgley, Co-Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, “First and foremost, our thoughts are with all those affected by COVID-19 and the Miller Industries team would like to thank all essential workers for their continued dedication during these unprecedented times. During March, we implemented several safety measures and initiated a contingency plan to ensure the health and safety of our workforce, suppliers, and customers and adjusted our operations accordingly, which necessitated a temporary shutdown at our manufacturing facilities.  Our first quarter revenue declined by 10.7% year-over-year due to such production modifications and shutdown, as well as disruptions in our supply chain and delayed deliveries associated with the COVID-19 pandemic during the last few weeks of March. We have adjusted our business operations in order to resume production. Miller Industries has been classified as an essential business and will continue to provide best-in-class products to our customers in order to keep the economy moving forward during this challenging time.”

Mr. Badgley continued, “During the first quarter, our international business performance was strong on a sequential basis, driven by favorable contract delivery timing, while domestic performance was negatively impacted due to a slowdown in deliveries to our distribution partners as certain tradeshow events were cancelled and the nation initiated travel restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Further, our balance sheet and liquidity are strong and we are confident in our ability to navigate the business through this crisis. As we move into the second quarter, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and attempt to actively mitigate any future impacts on our business that are under our control.”
