FAIRFIELD, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2021 / Jerash Holdings (US), Inc. (NASDAQ:JRSH), which manufactures and exports custom, ready-made, sports and outerwear for leading global brands, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 first quarter, ended June 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights - Fiscal 2022 First Quarter Versus Fiscal 2021 First Quarter

  • Revenue of $29.9 million, an increase of 59.8 percent, reflecting higher shipments

  • Gross profit of $5.6 million, an increase of 84.5 percent, due to higher revenue and gross margin

  • Gross margin of 18.8 percent vs. 16.3 percent, reflecting improved product mix and higher sales volumes

  • Comprehensive income attributable to Jerash Holdings (US), Inc.'s common stockholders of $2.0 million, or $0.17 per share, vs. approximately $813,000, or $0.07 per share

Fiscal 2022 Guidance

  • Fiscal 2022 revenue expected to be in the range of $115 million to $120 million vs. $90.2 million for fiscal 2021

  • Revenue for fiscal 2022 expected to be at record levels

  • Fiscal 2022 second quarter revenue expected to exceed $40 million

Sam Choi, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "Our fiscal 2022 first quarter results demonstrated excellent progress, with strong performance in revenue and margin. Revenue and gross profit were at record levels for the first quarter, reflecting an increase in shipments to our largest customers as a result of strong demand amid the reopening of the U.S. economy, as well as an improved mix of products sold.

"We continue to advance our plans to increase capacity and secure additional space to meet our customers' needs," Choi said. "We anticipate our momentum to continue well into fiscal 2022. All of our existing factories in Jordan are fully booked through January 2022, with orders from existing top global brand-name customers alone. These customers already are placing orders that are expected to fully book the newest facility we acquired through January 2022 as well. As a result, we have increased our fiscal 2022 revenue outlook to reflect our robust momentum and expanded capacity."

Fiscal 2022 First Quarter Results

Fiscal 2022 first quarter revenue rose by 59.8 percent to $29.9 million from $18.7 million in the same period last year, primarily due to higher shipments to the company's largest customers as a result of stronger demand amid a reopening of the U.S. economy.

Gross profit increased to $5.6 million in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, from $3.1 million in the same period last year, primarily due to higher revenue and gross margin. Gross margin expanded 250 basis points to 18.8 percent in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, from 16.3 percent in the same period last year, reflecting an improved product mix and higher sales volumes.

Operating expenses totaled $3.3 million in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, versus $1.9 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to higher headcount to support the company's growth, an increase in shipping costs, and expenses related to COVID-19 measures and recruitment for new migrant workers.

Operating income totaled $2.3 million in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, versus $1.2 million in the same period last year. Net income advanced to $1.9 million in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, versus approximately $814,000 in the same period last year. Comprehensive income attributable to Jerash Holdings (US), Inc.'s common stockholders totaled $2.0 million, or $0.17 per share, in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, versus approximately $813,000, or $0.07 per share, in the same period last year.

Gilbert Lee, chief financial officer, said, "Results for our fiscal 2022 first quarter reflected the recovery in the U.S. economy from pandemic-related effects. Order momentum is continuing into fiscal 2022, as expected, and more reflective of typical customer patterns. Our order mix for pre-bookings in the September and December quarters is heavily weighted to global brand-name outerwear products, which carry higher average selling prices and favorable gross margins.

"Our updated outlook for fiscal 2022 reflects our expectation for continued strong customer demand and increased capacity for the year. However, it is important to note that potential risks from the Delta variant of COVID-19 could constrain our ability to add workers needed to run operations at full capacity."

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Dividends

Cash and restricted assets totaled $8.5 million, and net working capital was $51.4 million at June 30, 2021. Net cash used in operating activities was $11.5 million in the fiscal 2022 first quarter, compared with $7.6 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to changes in working capital.

On August 5, 2021, Jerash approved a regular quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share on its common stock, payable on August 24, 2021, to stockholders of record as of August 17, 2021.
