Uniroyal Global Engineered Products, Inc. Reports Financial Results For The First Quarter Ended April 3, 2022

(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq)

SARASOTA, Fla., May 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uniroyal Global Engineered Products, Inc. (OTCQB:UNIR) today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 ended April 3, 2022.

Financial Summary

  • Net Sales of $20,070,551 declined 8.3% from the first quarter of the prior year
  • Net Loss of $545,356 versus Net Income of $1,036,001 which included non-recurring income
  • Loss Per Common Share of $0.15 versus Earnings Per Common Share of $0.06 in the prior year


Delays in customer production levels due to supply shortages, primarily microchips to the Automotive manufacturers, the lingering effects of the Covid viruses, a ramped up inflationary environment, as well as unfavorable currency adjustments, all led to significant headwinds for the Company in the first quarter of this year. Our U.K. operations was negatively impacted in particular this quarter as 90% of its sales were to the Automotive Industry. Production delays in the Automotive Industry led to a decline of 16.8% in automotive sales for our U.K. operations versus the same quarter of the previous year. Our U.K. operations comprised 49.4% of our total sales this quarter.

Unlike the first quarter of 2022, in the first quarter of last year Pre-tax earnings benefited in aggregate by approximately $1.0 million due to the Paycheck Protection Program and a favorable currency adjustment.

To bolster liquidity until selling conditions to the Automotive Industry improve, beginning with the second quarter of this year, the Company's majority shareholder waived interest payments on certain leases and notes for a twelve-month period and executive officers of the Company agreed to a reduction in their salaries for the same time period. The total amount of cost savings will be approximately $731,000 for fiscal 2022 and $244,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2023.

Net Sales

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 were $20,070,551 versus $21,896,001 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, a decline of 8.3%.

Revenue by Sector

From a Sector perspective, Automotive sales which represented 59.4% of total Company sales, declined 15.0% for the quarter versus the same period last year. Automotive sales for our U.K. operations declined 16.8% while Automotive sales for our U.S. operations declined 9.1% versus the prior year as we continued to experience customer production disruptions primarily due to computer chip shortages. However, customer production disruptions were less prevalent in the first quarter of 2022 than in the fourth quarter of 2021, a positive trend we hope continues. Our U.K. operations represented approximately 75% of the total Automotive sales for this quarter.

Our Industrial Sector which represented 40.6% of total Company sales, increased 3.6% this year versus the prior year led by higher demand due to the reopening of industries such as hospitality, physical fitness and health services. This increase in demand was largely from our U.S. operations which represented 88.0% of the total Industrial Sector sales.

Revenue by Customer Location

Approximately 51.1% of total Company sales were to customers located in North America with the remaining 48.9% from international customers, primarily in Europe. In total, North American sales were up slightly (0.8%) for the quarter as increased sales in the Industrial Sector more than offset the declines in the Automotive Sector. International sales this quarter declined 16.3% versus the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Europe is the dominant region of our international sales, which are largely from customers supplying the Automotive industry.

Net (Loss)/Income

Net Loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 was $545,356 versus Net Income of $1,036,001 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Net Income for the first quarter of last year benefited in aggregate by approximately $1.0 million from funding through the Paycheck Protection Program and a favorable currency adjustment. These items did not reoccur in the first quarter of this year.

The Net Loss incurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 was due in part to the decline in total Company sales. Gross Profit Margins were 13.3% this quarter versus 14.8% in the first quarter of last year as certain price increases implemented during the first quarter of this year due to increased raw material costs were not yet fully realized during the quarter. It continues to be a struggle to get acceptance of price increases in a timely manner in certain industries. The frequency and magnitude of raw material cost increases experienced in the first quarter of this year seem to be less severe as we move into the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

We continue to monitor cost increases closely and intend to pass on these costs as much as possible while at the same time reducing internal costs and enhancing efficiencies.

Net (Loss) Income Allocable to Common Shareholders

Net Loss allocable to common shareholders in the first quarter of this year was $545,356, or $0.15 per common share, versus Net Income allocable to common shareholders of $219,587, or $0.06 per common share. The Net Income allocable to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2021 is after an accrual for the Preferred Stock Dividend of $816,414. The preferred dividend payments were deferred to provide additional liquidity. The deferred dividends were subsequently forgiven in the third quarter of 2021 under amended documents that govern the dividends. In addition, the preferred shareholders are no longer entitled to a quarterly dividend until such time as the Company declares a dividend payable. To preserve cash, quarterly preferred dividends were not declared during the first quarter of 2022.

Weighted average shares outstanding were 3,736,006 for both fiscal first quarters.
