SED International Releases Second Quarter Financial Results

SED International Releases Second Quarter Financial Results

Company Reports Net Sales of $156.3 million

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SED International Holdings, Inc.(NYSE MKT: SED), a multinational supply chain management provider and distributor of leading computer technology, computer products, consumer electronics, small appliances, housewares and personal care products, today announced financial results for the six months and fiscal 2013 second quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Net sales of $156.3 for fiscal 2013 second quarter, represented a 23.7% increase over net sales of $126.4 million reported in the fiscal 2013 first quarter. Net sales for the quarter were up 3.5% for the second quarter compared to $150.9 million in the second quarter last year. The increase was driven by strong sales in the consumer product categories which include tablets, notebooks, and television products.

Gross margin decreased to 5.1% during the quarter compared to 9% for the same period last year. Our current quarter margin was closer to historical levels. Last year's gross margin was unnaturally high due to increased margins on hard drives, driven by industry supply constraints.

Including restructuring costs, the company reported a net loss of $1.6 million for the second quarter, compared to net income of $3.8 million in the second quarter last year. Basic and diluted loss per share was $0.32 for the current quarter compared to earnings of $0.79 per basic share and $0.78 per diluted share for the second quarter last year. Other items include:

  • The company incurred restructuring costs of $0.8 million during the second quarter which were attributable to the organizational restructuring of the management team including severance payments, change in the organizational alignment of sales, product management, and marketing, and information technology outsourcing. These organizational changes were made to provide a leaner internal services organization and improved support for our sales and marketing organization. Benefits from these restructuring actions are expected in future periods.
  • Normalized adjusted net loss for the current quarter was $0.7 million, after deducting restructuring related costs and stock-based compensation expense, compared to a Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") net loss of $1.6 million.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, which also excludes restructuring related costs and stock-based compensation expense, was $3,000 for the current quarter and a loss of $1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012, compared to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $4.6 million for the same quarter last year and $3.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2011.
  • Inventory turns improved to 10.3 for the fiscal 2013 second quarter compared to 8.8 turns for the same period a year ago and from 8.1 turns for the fiscal 2013 first quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents were $12.5 million, net trade receivables were $64.6 million, net inventories were $61.6 million and working capital was $16.6 million at December 31, 2012. Cash increased at quarter end due to the receipt of approximately $7.3 million on the last day of the quarter. The cash receipts have since been applied against our borrowings.

Shareholders' equity at the end of the quarter was $20.9 million, or $4.16 per basic and diluted share.

"We made measurable progress during the quarter toward our goal of sustained profitability," said Bob O'Malley, president and chief executive officer of SED International. "Revenues returned to levels of a year ago. We have cut expenses while streamlining our U.S. organization, aligning it around opportunities in the retail and technology integration channels we have targeted. In the U.S. our vendor and customer relationships remain strong. Meanwhile our Latin America operations continue to lead SED in growth and profitability."

For the six months ended December 31, 2012, net sales were $282.7 million, with gross margin of $15 million or 5.3%, compared with net sales of $306.8 million, with gross margin of $21.2 million or 6.9% for the same period last year. Six month net income for fiscal year 2013 was a loss of $3.7 million, or $0.74 loss per basic and diluted share, versus income of $2.9 million, or earnings of $0.61 per basic share and $0.60 per diluted share, for the same period last year. Excluding restructuring costs of $1.2 million and stock-based compensation expense of $0.1 million, non-GAAP normalized adjusted net loss for the six months end December 31, 2012 was $2.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measure: "Normalized Adjusted Net Income (Loss)", "Adjusted EBITDA" (Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization), and "Normalized EPS" (Earnings Per Share). These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace any presentation included in our consolidated financial statements under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered an alternative to operating performance or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, we believe this measure is useful to investors. The Company's management believes that Normalized Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, and Normalized EPS represent a key operating metric for its business. These non-GAAP terms, as defined by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Normalized Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, and Normalized EPS are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. The Company believes that items excluded from Normalized Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, and Normalized EPS are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings, operating income and other consolidated earnings data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our profitability. A reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP Normalized Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, and Earnings per Share is included at the end of this press release.
