Virco Reports First Quarter Results

Net Sales Grew 59%
Market for School Furniture in Strong Recovery
Forward Indicator of Shipments + Backlog at Three-Year High
U.S. Factories, Vertical Model Deliver Superior On-Time Customer Service, Shorten Order-to-Cash Cycle

Torrance, California—June 11, 2021—Virco Mfg. Corporation released First Quarter results for the period ended April 30, 2021, in the following letter to Shareholders:

Reflecting a strong recovery in the market for school furniture, Virco reported a 59% increase in net sales for the first quarter ended April 30, 2021. For the months of February through April, net sales were $28,367,000 versus $17,817,000 in the same period last year. Gross profit increased 57% from $4,904,000 to $7,688,000, consistent with the revenue increase, as the Company responded effectively to higher raw material and freight costs. The operating loss for the seasonally light first quarter declined from $7,027,000 last year to $4,295,000 this year.

The Company’s preferred forward-looking indicator is “Shipments + Backlog,” which the Company defines as actual year-to-date net sales on a given date for the current fiscal year plus the un-shipped backlog that is expected to be recognized within that same fiscal year from customers that have already placed orders at confirmed prices and service terms. Recognizing that year-over-year comparisons to last year’s pandemic might not provide sufficient perspective, management looked back an additional year for comparison to more “normal” market conditions. The following chart shows three years of Shipments + Backlog at May 31 for the year indicated:

Shipments + Backlog at May 31,
$ 107,334,000
$ 84,050,000
$ 99,396,000

In addition to robust levels of business activity, the Company has also achieved iterative efficiencies in its vertical business model. These have been highlighted by current stresses in global supply chains. The speed and flexibility with which the Company can convert low-cost raw materials into higher-value customer-specified finished goods, combined with the precise demand visibility provided by direct relationships with public and private schools, has allowed the Company to reduce its dependence on debt-financed inventory compared to prior years while still providing superior on-time delivery. Borrowings under the Company’s seasonal revolving debt facility are approximately half of last year’s level despite the significant increase in business activity. Management believes these efficiencies will persist through the current delivery season and perhaps into future years.

Here are the numbers for the first quarter ended:

Reflecting on the First Quarter’s results, Virco Chairman and CEO Robert Virtue said: “We’ve been making furniture for America’s schools since our founding in 1950. The COVID pandemic—both its lockdown and the current recovery—are unprecedented in our experience. One of the things we learned from prior recessions, although each one had its own cause and characteristics, was that coming out of recession was often harder than hunkering down during the midst of it.

“The habits of hunkering down are hard to break. We’re seeing that now in the unreliable performance of global supply chains. Some of our own materials and components have also been impacted, but we are fortunate, because of our commitment to our own U.S. factories, that we can make most of what we need in our own plants by quickly switching processes and lines to supplement components currently in short supply.

“We are very busy, and our employees are earning double-pay for every hour of overtime. We expect to be busy through year-end as the continuing stream of school recovery money makes its way through the system. We thank our employees for their stoutness through a very challenging time, and our shareholders for their conviction in our market and our business model.”

Virco President Doug Virtue added:

“We often say we’re at our best when we’re challenged. This past year has proven that. To generate positive cash flows during the pandemic and then continue that improvement as the recovery gains speed is gratifying. We’re now seeing the financial benefits of many years’ refinement of our vertical business model. We’re also proud to be part of the nationwide effort to reopen schools and get students back in the classroom, where we think they receive the most balanced learning experience.”

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes a statement of the percentage change in shipments plus unshipped backlog through May 31, 2021 compared to the same period in the prior fiscal years. Shipments represent the dollar amount of net sales actually shipped during the period presented. Unshipped backlog represents the dollar amount of net sales that we expect to recognize in the future from sales orders that have been received from customers in the ordinary course of business. The Company considers shipments plus unshipped backlog a relevant and preferred supplemental measure for production and delivery planning. However, such measure has inherent limitations, is not required to be uniformly applied or audited and other companies may use methodologies to calculate similar measures that are not comparable. Readers should be aware of these limitations and should be cautious as to their use of such measure.
