Katy Industries, Inc. Reports Net Income In 2013 Second Quarter Results

PR Newswire

BRIDGETON, Mo., Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Katy Industries, Inc. (OTC BB: KATY) today reported net income in the second quarter of 2013 of $0.1 million versus a net loss of $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2012.  Income from continuing operations was $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to a loss of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. Operating income was $0.5 million, or 2.4% of net sales, in the second quarter of 2013, compared to a loss of $0.4 million, or 1.8% of net sales, for the same period in 2012.   

Financial highlights for the second quarter of 2013, as compared to the same period in the prior year, included:

  • Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $20.8 million, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 2.8%, compared to the same period in 2012.  The decrease was a result of volume shortfall in our Wilen business unit which was partially offset by a volume increase in our Continental business unit.
  • Gross margin was 16.5% in the second quarter of 2013, an increase from 16.2% in the second quarter of 2012.  Gross margin was impacted by an unfavorable adjustment in our LIFO reserve of $17,000 and $104,000 for 2013 and 2012, respectively, resulting from inventory fluctuations. Excluding the LIFO adjustments, gross margin decreased from 16.7% in the second quarter of 2012 to 16.6% in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased from $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2012 to $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. The decrease was primarily due to headcount reductions in the first half of 2013.

The Company reported a net loss for the six months ended June 28, 2013 of $0.7 million, or $0.09 per share, versus a net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.42 per share, for the six months ended June 29, 2012. Loss from continuing operations was $1.1 million for the six months ended June 28, 2013 compared to $1.8 million for the six months ended June 29, 2012. Operating loss was $0.8 million, or 1.9% of net sales, for the six months ended June 28, 2013, compared to $1.7 million, or 4.3% of net sales, for the six months ended June 29, 2012.

Financial highlights for the six months ended June 28, 2013, as compared to the six months ended June 28, 2012, included:

  • Net sales for the six months ended June 28, 2013 were $39.0 million, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 2.0%, compared to the same period in 2012. The decrease was a result of volume shortfall in our Wilen business unit which was partially offset by a volume increase in our Continental business unit.
  • Gross margin was 15.0% for the six months ended June 28, 2013, a decrease of 40 basis points from the same period a year ago. The decrease in gross margin was primarily a result of the sales mix. Gross margin was impacted by an unfavorable variance in our LIFO adjustment of $0.2 million for both 2013 and 2012 resulting from inventory fluctuations. Excluding the LIFO adjustments, gross margin decreased 50 basis points from the first half of 2012.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $6.3 million for the first half of 2013 as compared to $7.8 million for the first half of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to one-time settlements, headcount reductions and reduction of environmental costs for the six months ended June 28, 2013 as compared to the six months ended June 29, 2012.

Operations provided $0.6 million of free cash flow in the first half of 2013 compared to using $0.6 million during the same period a year ago.  This increase was primarily the result of cash provided by discontinued operations, which was partially offset by increases in accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable.  Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, is discussed further below.

Debt at June 28, 2013 was $10.4 million, versus $10.9 million at December 31, 2012.

"We are pleased to report net income in the second quarter due to improvement in our operations" stated David J. Feldman, Katy's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We expect to realize ongoing benefits as we continue to implement our strategic operational plans and the economy strengthens."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide transparency about measures of Katy's financial performance which management considers most relevant, the Company supplements the reporting of Katy's consolidated financial information under GAAP with a non-GAAP financial measure, Free Cash Flow. Free Cash Flow is defined by Katy as cash flow from operating activities less net capital expenditures. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to a comparable GAAP measure is provided in the "Statements of Cash Flows" accompanying this press release. This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, the other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Using only the non-GAAP financial measure to analyze the Company's performance would have material limitations because its calculation is based on the subjective determinations of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find material. Management compensates for these limitations by utilizing both the GAAP and non-GAAP measures reflected below to understand and analyze the results of its business. Katy believes this measure is nonetheless useful to management and investors in measuring cash generated that is available for repayment of debt obligations, investment in growth through acquisitions, new business development and stock repurchases.

This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements include all statements of the Company's plans, beliefs or expectations with respect to future events or developments and often may be identified by such words or phrases as "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "projects," "may," "should," "will," "continue," "is subject to," or similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and beliefs of Katy's management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company's management. Additionally, the forward-looking statements are based on Katy's current expectations and projections about future events and trends affecting the financial condition of its business. The forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may lead to results that differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement made by the Company or on its behalf. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, conditions in the general economy and in the markets served by the Company, including changes in the demand for its products; success of any restructuring or cost control efforts; an increase in interest rates; competitive factors, such as price pressures and the potential emergence of rival technologies; interruptions of suppliers' operations or other causes affecting availability of component materials or finished goods at reasonable prices; changes in product mix, costs and yields; labor issues at the Company's facilities or those of its suppliers; legal claims or other regulatory actions; and other risks identified from time to time in the Company's filings with the SEC, including its Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. Katy undertakes no obligation to revise or update such statements to reflect current events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Katy Industries, Inc. is a diversified corporation focused on the manufacture, import and distribution of commercial cleaning products and consumer home products.
