SUMR Brands ("SUMR Brands" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SUMR), a global leader in premium infant and juvenile products, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 27, 2020.

Recent Highlights

  • Net sales were $38.2 million in the second quarter versus $46.4 million in the prior-year period, reflecting the impact of COVID-19 on certain retail availability as well as supplier constraints in a few locations, which have since substantially improved
  • Reflecting the Company’s ongoing restructuring initiatives and cost-cutting activities, G&A declined to $6.7 million in the second quarter from $8.1 million in the first quarter and $8.5 million in last year’s comparable period
  • SUMR Brands reported net income of $1.3 million, or $0.61 per share, in the second quarter of 2020 compared with a net loss of $0.2 million, or $(0.11) per share, in the prior-year period
  • Adjusted EBITDA rose to $4.3 million from $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, and Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales was 11.4% in 2020 versus 5.3% last year
  • SUMR Brands generated $9.6 million in operating cash during the second quarter, compared to $2.4 million in the prior-year period, reflecting improved operating results and working capital management; debt was reduced by $9.3 million, to $35.2 million, in the quarter

“It is with great pleasure that I announce SUMR Brands posted earnings of $1.3 million this quarter, or $0.61 per share, reflecting the many steps taken this past year to reduce costs, streamline our operations, increase cash flow, and improve overall performance,” said Stuart Noyes, Interim CEO. “While COVID-19 negatively impacted revenue growth – primarily through supply chain constraints and certain lower brick & mortar traffic – we saw G&A costs fall over 20% year-over-year, generated $9.6 million in cash from operations, and reduced debt to the lowest levels in recent history.

“Our results this quarter – in the middle of a global pandemic – reflect not only our strategic focus on right-sizing the business but, in tandem, the ongoing demand for the innovative and essential products we bring to market. Given that our supply chain constraints are largely behind us, I believe the Company is well positioned for a strong finish to fiscal 2020 and am proud of all we’ve accomplished in transforming SUMR Brands into a lean, customer-centric, profitable organization.”

Second Quarter Results

Net sales for the three months ended June 27, 2020 were $38.2 million compared with $46.4 million for the three months ended June 29, 2019. The Company’s results reflect the strategic restructuring of its international operations and negative impact of COVID-19 on revenue, primarily via store closures and supply chain issues for certain products, the latter of which lowered shipments during the quarter; such manufacturing constraints have largely been corrected, resulting in a positive outlook for the third quarter.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 was $14.0 million versus $14.8 million in 2019, while gross margin rose to 36.7% in 2020 versus 32.0% last year. The gross margin percent increase reflected a favorable mix of higher margin product categories and additional tariff exclusions on certain products, partially offset by increased volume of lower margin direct import sales. The tariff exclusions resulted in a $1.8 million benefit to cost of goods sold in the fiscal 2020 second quarter, of which $1.7 million related to prior periods.

Selling expense was $3.7 million in the second quarter of 2020 versus $4.0 million in 2019, and selling expense as a percent of net sales was 9.8% in 2020 versus 8.7% last year. The increase year-over-year as a percent of sales was primarily due to higher cooperative advertising expenses, freight, and royalty costs.

General and administrative expenses (G&A) were $6.7 million in the second quarter of 2020 versus $8.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, declining to 17.6% of net sales from 18.4% last year. The year-over-year change reflects lower labor and other costs due to various streamlining actions taken by the Company over the past year. Interest expense was $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2020 versus $1.3 million in 2019.

The Company reported net income of $1.3 million, or $0.61 per share, in the second quarter of 2020 compared with a net loss of $0.2 million, or $(0.11) per share, in the prior-year period.  

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the Company’s credit agreements, for the second quarter of 2020 was $4.3 million versus $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2019, and Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales was 11.4% in the second quarter of 2020 versus 5.3% last year. Adjusted EBITDA in 2020 included $0.7 million in bank permitted add-back charges compared with $0.1 million during the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss, and adjusted loss per share are non-GAAP metrics. An explanation is included under the heading below "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information," and reconciliations to GAAP measures can be found in the tables at the end of this release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This release and the referenced webcast include presentations of non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per diluted share.  Adjusted EBITDA means earnings before interest and taxes plus depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other items added back as detailed in the reconciliation table included in this release. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per diluted share means net (loss) plus unamortized financing fees and other items added back, as well as the tax impact of these items, as detailed in the reconciliation table included in this release. Such information is supplemental to information presented in accordance with GAAP and is not intended to represent a presentation in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors to better understand, on a period-to-period comparable basis, financial amounts both including and excluding these identified items, as they indicate more clearly the Company’s operations and its ability to meet capital expenditure and working capital requirements. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to such GAAP measures as net income, cash flows provided by or used in operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity.  The Company provides reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures in its press releases of historical performance.  Because these measures are not determined in accordance with GAAP and are susceptible to varying calculations, these non-GAAP measures, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
