Lifetime Brands, Inc.

Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend

GARDEN CITY, N.Y., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lifetime Brands, Inc. (NasdaqGS: LCUT), a leading global designer, developer and marketer of a broad range of branded consumer products used in the home, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Rob Kay, Lifetime’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our performance in the second quarter, while remaining strong compared to pre-pandemic levels, was impacted by the macroeconomic challenges that companies across industries and retailers in particular continue to face. Inflation and supply chain disruptions, have created inventory buildup in the retail channel and weaker end market demand as these impacts created a slowdown in durable good purchases from consumers and all channels of retail this quarter. Despite this environment, we were pleased to record results that exceeded pre-pandemic levels, which is a testament to the progress the Company has made executing on our strategy. We believe we have positioned Lifetime to navigate these headwinds and we have taken a number of mitigating actions, including implementing pricing adjustments where possible and reducing our SG&A over the course of 2022. Our business model has proven resilient through all market cycles, and we are confident that we are on the right path.”

Mr. Kay continued, “In light of the current environment and our results in the second quarter, we are revising our outlook for the full year 2022. We now expect our net sales to be in the range of $800 million to $850 million and our Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $73 million and $79 million. Looking ahead, we will continue to be proactive and nimble in managing through this environment, and we are focused on maintaining a healthy balance sheet and strong cash flows to maximize our operating flexibility.”

Consolidated net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were $151.3 million, representing a decrease of $35.3 million, or 18.9%, as compared to net sales of $186.6 million for the corresponding period in 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including consolidated net sales in constant currency, adjusted (loss) income from operations, adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted diluted (loss) income per common share, adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted EBITDA. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of income, balance sheets, or statements of cash flows of a company; or, includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided because the Company's management uses these financial measures in evaluating the Company’s on-going financial results and trends, and management believes that exclusion of certain items allows for more accurate period-to-period comparison of the Company’s operating performance by investors and analysts. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as indicators of business performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, GAAP financial measures of performance. As required by SEC rules, the Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

(1) Bad debt reserve recorded in the six months ended 2020 to establish a provision against potential credit problems from certain retail customers who may have financial difficulty that has been caused or increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This reflects the Company's assessment of risk of not being able to collect such receivables from certain customers in the U.S. that are at risk of seeking or have already obtained bankruptcy protection and our international customer base which has a higher proportion of small and independent brick-and-mortar retailers. This charge was taken in response to the Company's assessment on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on these accounts
