SARASOTA, Fla.—August 6, 2018—Uniroyal Global Engineered Products, Inc. (OTCQB: UNIR or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended July 1, 2018.

 

Financial Highlights-Second Quarter

 

 

*Net Sales in line with the prior year on increases in the Automotive Sector
*Gross Profit margins improve quarter-to-quarter on operational improvements, cost reduction and increased selling prices
*Operating expenses decline to 12.6% of Net Sales versus 14.2% in prior year quarter
*Net Income Available to Common Shareholders of $148,389 or $0.01 per share, in line with prior year

 

Overview

 

The financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2018 showed marked improvement from recent quarters in many key measurements. Gross Margins improved to 18.3% which was an improvement from the 17.5% and 14.8% recorded in the two previous quarters. Raw material cost increases continue to be a headwind, but operational efficiencies offset the negative impact. Operating expenses as a percentage of Net Sales declined to 12.6% versus the 14.1% of the previous quarter and 14.2% of last year as the Company continues cost cuts, particularly in the General and Administrative area.

 

As we mentioned last quarter, we are diversifying our product mix in the Automotive sector to qualify for platforms of major automotive OEM’s, targeting growing segments such as SUV’s and trucks. Further, we are diversifying our sales strategies to include different channels such as heavy truck, recreational vehicles and marine applications. We anticipate that we will return to sales growth and continued margin improvements in the second half of this year.

 

Net Sales

 

Net Sales for the second quarter were $26,023,233 versus $26,077,549 in the second quarter of 2017, resulting in a decline of 0.2% (a decline of 4.0% excluding the favorable currency effect). Geographically, US operations (45.3% of total Net Sales for the second quarter) recorded an increase of 2.8% and the UK operations (54.7% of total Net Sales for the second quarter) declined 2.6% versus the prior year second quarter.

 

The Automotive Sector (68.6% of total Net Sales) increased 1.4% versus the prior year as the US operations recorded sharp improvement (9.8%) over the prior year more than offsetting a 1.4% decline in the UK operations. Though it’s difficult to forecast quarterly sales in the Automotive Sector because of timing of platforms, OEM scheduling and demands, we are pleased with the performance of our US operations and believe the second quarter results will launch us into a stronger second half. The UK customer base in particular is positioned strongly in the European marketplace.

 

The Industrial Sector (31.4% of total Net Sales for the second quarter) declined 3.5% versus the prior year as UK sales from the non-automotive transportation market saw a decline compared to 2017 due to a quarterly timing issue. Sales of this sector were up 3.3% for the six months 2018 versus the six months of the prior year.

 

 
 

 

Operating Income

 

Operating Income for the second quarter was $1,474,897, which was a decline of 10.3% from the $1,644,302 recorded in the same quarter of the prior year. As a percentage of Net Sales, Operating Income was 5.7% versus 6.3% in the second quarter of the previous year. Though the metrics of this quarter were below that of the prior year, we are pleased with the improvement being made at our operations from the most recent quarters where we encountered sharp increases in raw material prices and operational start-up issues due to a major equipment installation in the UK. While raw material price increases are being accepted by customers, this is a continuous process. Further, we believe that the UK start-up issues are now behind us. These variables lead to a Gross Profit Margin of 18.3% which was an improvement from the 17.5% recorded in the first quarter of this year. A reduction in Operating Expenses has been a strategic focus of the Company as well. For the second quarter, Operating Expenses declined $403,000 versus the second quarter of last year to 12.6% of Net Sales versus 14.2% in the year ago quarter. We believe that the result of the targeted actions in place will lead to a continuous improvement in Operating Income in the second half of this year.

 

Net Income (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders

 

After Preferred stock dividends, Net Income Available to Common Shareholders was $148,389 or $0.01 per diluted common share as compared to $214,466 or $0.01 per diluted common share in the second quarter of the prior year. Weighted average shares outstanding were moderately below that of the previous year at 18,690,030.
