·10 min read

Industrias Unidas, S.A. de C.V. ("IUSA" or the "Company") has announced its unaudited results for the first six months ended June 30 of 2020. Figures are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with Mexican Financial Reporting Standards ("MFRS"), which are different in certain respects from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"). The results from any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full fiscal year. Unless stated otherwise, reference herein to "Pesos", "pesos", or "Ps." are to pesos, the legal currency of Mexico and references to "U.S. dollars", "dollars", "U.S. $" or "$" are to United States dollars, the legal currency of the United States of America. Except as otherwise indicated, all peso amounts are presented herein in pesos with purchasing power as of June 30, 2020 and in pesos with their historical value for other dates cited. The dollar translations provided in this document are calculated solely for the convenience of the reader using an exchange rate of Ps. 22.96 per U.S. dollar, the exchange rate published by Banco de Mexico, the country’s central bank, on June 30, 2020.

Six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to six months ended June 30, 2019.

The following table summarizes our results of operations for the first six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019:

1/ EBITDA for any period is defined as consolidated net income (loss) excluding i) depreciation and amortization, ii) total net comprehensive financing result (which is comprised of net interest expense, exchange gain or loss, monetary position gain or loss and other Financing costs), iii) other expenses net, iv) income tax and statutory employee profit sharing and v) equity in income (loss) of associated companies. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternate measure of net income or operating income, as determined on a consolidated basis using amounts derived from statements of operations prepared in accordance with MFRS, or as an indicator of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activity as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA is not a recognized term under MFRS or U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activity as a measure of liquidity.

Our consolidated net loss for the first six months ended June 30, 2020 was Ps.1,206.4 million (US$52.6 million), compared to a net loss of Ps. 157.3 million in the same period of 2019. This change is primarily due to an exchange loss driven by the Mexican peso depreciation and its accounting effect on the Comprehensive Financing Result.

Revenues

Our net revenues for the first six months of 2020 increased 1.2% to Ps.8,573.3 million (US$373.4 million) from Ps. 8,470.7 million in the same period of 2019. Despite our volume sales decline and a lower copper average price, our product mix allowed this result.

Normally, our costs and revenues follow copper prices very closely since the market practice is to pass on to the buyer changes in raw material price.

Our sales are primarily to customers engaged in the commercial, industrial and residential construction, and their related maintenance and renovation activities. We also sell to customers engaged in electrical power generation, transmission and distribution and to the sector of gas, water and air conduction in the Heating, Ventilation, Air conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR).

Our revenues consist mainly of sales of copper-based products (tubing, wire, cable and alloys) and electrical products.

By country of production, approximately 55.6% of our revenues in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 came from products manufactured in Mexico and the remaining 44.4% from products manufactured in the U.S.

In terms of sales by region during the first six months ended June 30, 2020 we derived approximately 50.6% of our revenues from sales to customers in the United States, 46.9% from customers in Mexico and 2.5% from the rest of the world ("ROW").

In terms of volume, consolidated sales of copper products during the first six months ended June 30, 2020 decreased by 6.3% as compared to the same period in 2019:

Cost of sales

Our cost of sales in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 decreased by 1.1% to Ps.7,630.4 million (US$332.4 million) from Ps. 7,714.5 million in the same period of 2019. As percentage of revenues, cost of sales was 89.0% and 91.1% respectively.

We do continue to reduce our cost base through several initiatives, including plant scheduling, raw material handling, and overall manufacturing overhead costs. According to our accounting policies, we make an inventory valuation at average purchase price. In the case of copper cathodes, an aftermath adjustment is required due to the quotation period agreed with the suppliers (M+1). This initiative allows us to hedge purchases for 30 days at no additional cost. The adjustment is recorded to the cost of sales in the month in which it occurs.

Gross Profit

Our gross profit in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 increased 24.7% to Ps.942.8 million (US$41.1 million) from Ps. 756.2 million in the same period of 2019. As percentage of sales, gross profit in 2020 was 11.0% vs 8.9% in 2019.

Selling and Administrative Expenses

Our selling and administrative expenses in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 increased 6.0% to Ps. 788.1 million from Ps. 743.3 in the same period of 2019.

Operating Income

Our operating income in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 increased eleven times, to Ps.154.7 million (U.S.$6.7 million) from our operating income of Ps. 12.9 in the same period of 2019; due to the combination of a larger gross profit and the lower selling and administrative expenses.

EBITDA

In the first six months ended June 30, 2020 our EBITDA increased 38.1% to Ps.334.3 million (or US$14.6 million), from Ps. 242.0 million in the same period of 2019. The corresponding depreciation and amortization figures are Ps.179.6 million for January to June 2020 and Ps. 229.1 million for the same period of 2019.

Our comprehensive financing result in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 was a cost of Ps.1,337.9 million, compared to a cost of Ps.195.4 million in the same period of 2019. This fivefold increase was due to the accounting effect of the exchange loss derived from the Mexican Peso depreciation in this period.

Taxes and Statutory Employee Profit Sharing

The provision for current and deferred income taxes and statutory employee profit sharing in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 was an expense of Ps.0.6 million compared to an expense of Ps.57.8 million in the same period of 2019.

Consolidated Net Loss

Our consolidated net loss for the first six months ended June 30, 2020 was Ps.1,206.4 million (US$52.6 million), compared to a net loss of Ps. 157.3 million in the same period of 2019. This was due to the accounting effect of the Comprehensive Financing Result.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity

As of June 30, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents for Ps.130.9 million (U.S. $5.5 million). Our policy is to invest available cash in short-term instruments issued by Mexican and U.S. banks as well as in securities issued by the governments of Mexico and the U.S.

Our cash flow from operations and operating margins are significantly influenced by world market prices for raw copper, as quoted by COMEX and the London Metal Exchange ("LME"). Copper prices are subject to significant market fluctuations; average copper prices decreased 10.6% in the first six months ended June 30, 2020 to $2.50 US dollar per pound from $2.80 US dollar per pound in the same period of 2019.

We obtain short-term financing from various sources, including Mexican and international banks. Short-term financing consists in part of lines of credit denominated in pesos and dollars. As of June 30, 2020, our outstanding short-term debt, including the current portion of long-term debt totaled Ps.171.7 million (U.S. $7.2 million), all of which was dollar denominated.
