Press Release



Uniroyal Global Engineered Products, Inc. Reports Net Sales of $26,077,549 and
Net Income Available to Common Shareholders of $214,466 or $0.01 per Diluted Share for the Quarter Ended July 2, 2017


SARASOTA, Fla. - (BUSINESS WIRE) – August 7, 2017 - Uniroyal Global Engineered Products, Inc. (OTCQB:UNIR or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended July 2, 2017.

“The second quarter proved to be difficult, with rapidly increasing volumes in our European plant being offset by declining volumes in our North America plant, as the US auto market has softened” stated Howard R. Curd, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “While we are certainly not pleased with our results this quarter, we are taking dramatic action to improve productivity and cut costs at all global operations. This will lead to better operating performance as we progress through the second half of this year,”

Net Sales

Three Months Ended July 2, 2017

Net Sales for the second fiscal quarter ended July 2, 2017 were $26,077,549 versus $27,333,869 for the previous year, a decline of 4.6%.  Excluding changes in currency, Net Sales would have declined only 1.4% for the quarter. Global automotive sales which accounted for over 67% of overall sales for the quarter, declined 5.4% versus the previous year. The decline was primarily attributable to lower US domestic automotive volume, where industry production levels have slowed versus the second quarter of the previous year.  European automotive business continued to record strong improvement versus the previous year.

Net Sales for the Industrial Sector (33% of total Net Sales) declined 2.9% for the second fiscal quarter versus the previous year. This decline was less than the decline of the first quarter as sales to major off-highway equipment manufacturers showed improvement versus recent quarterly trends. The decline was partially offset by increases in the decorative and contract furnishings markets.

Six Months Ended July 2, 2017

Net Sales for the six months ended July 2, 2017 were $51,835,978 versus $52,301,464 for the previous year, a decline of 0.9%.  Excluding changes in currency, Net Sales would have increased 3.0% for the period. Global automotive sales for the six months ended July 2, 2017 increased 2% versus the previous year. European automotive business for the six months ended July 2, 2017 showed record improvement versus the previous year. This improvement was partially offset by the decline attributable to the lower US domestic automotive volume.
 

 
Net Sales for the Industrial Sector decreased 6.4% for the six months end July 2, 2017 versus the previous year. The decline in this sector slowed as sales during the current quarter to major off-highway equipment manufacturers showed improvements. The decline was partially offset by increases in the decorative and contract furnishings markets.

Operating Income

Three Months Ended July 2, 2017

Operating Income for the second fiscal quarter was $1,644,302 versus $2,614,414 for the second quarter of the previous year, a decline of 37.1%. The principal reason for the decline was a contraction in Gross Profit Margins to 20.5% from 24.4% in the second quarter of the previous year. Negatively affecting margins in the second quarter of this fiscal year by approximately 2% were global raw material price increases, principally due to inflation in the U.K. caused by a weaker British Pound Sterling. In addition, general operating inefficiencies, due to the decline in production levels as a result of lower US automotive sales combined with start-up issues at the European operation caused by the ramp up for new automotive platforms contributed to the decline in Gross Profit Margins.

Total Operating Expenses for the second fiscal quarter declined by $352,459 or 8.7% as the Company continues to focus on cost reduction programs to reduce General and Administrative overhead. Also contributing to the reduction was the currency effect of $158,000.

Six Months Ended July 2, 2017

Operating Income for the six months was $3,380,182 versus $4,487,868 for the six months of the previous year, a decline of 24.7%. The principal reason for the decline was a contraction in Gross Profit Margins to 20.7% from 23.7% in the six months of the previous year. As highlighted above, margins for the six months were negatively affected by approximately 1.5% from global raw material price increases principally due to inflation in the U.K. caused by a weaker British Pound Sterling. In addition, general operating inefficiencies, due to the decline in production levels as a result of lower US automotive sales combined with start-up issues at the European operation caused by the ramp up for new automotive platforms, contributed to the decline in Gross Profit Margins.

Total Operating Expenses for the six months ended July 2, 2017 declined by $565,198 or 7.2%, due to the focus on cost reduction programs to reduce General and Administrative overhead and the currency effect of $346,000.

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Three Months Ended July 2, 2017

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders declined in the second fiscal quarter to $214,466 from $1,181,726 in the second quarter of the previous year, as a result of the lower Gross Profit Margins. The tax provision was $191,343 for the three months ended July 2, 2017 compared to $198,134 for the prior year. The overall effective tax rate was higher for the current year due to UK taxes.
