CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Miller Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MLR) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

For the second quarter of 2022, net sales were $201.5 million, an increase of 11.2%, compared to $181.2 million for the second quarter of 2021. Net income in the second quarter of 2022 was $3.8 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to net income of $6.5 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the prior year period, for decreases of 42.3% and 42.1%, respectively.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 was $18.4 million, or 9.1% of net sales, compared to $20.6 million, or 11.4% of net sales, for the second quarter of 2021. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $12.7 million, or 6.3% of net sales, compared to $12.0 million, or 6.6% of net sales, in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net sales were $417.0 million, an increase of 18.8% compared to $351.1 million in the prior year period. The Company reported net income of $5.8 million, or $0.51 per diluted share for the first six months of 2022, compared to net income of $9.7 million, or $0.85 per diluted share for the first six months of 2021, for decreases of 39.9% and 40.0%, respectively.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share, payable September 12, 2022, to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 5, 2022, the forty-seventh consecutive quarter that the Company has paid a dividend.

"Supply chain issues persisted during the quarter, however, despite this, we were pleased with our ability to improve profitability as we navigate these challenging times," said William G. Miller, II, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.  "We continued to experience issues securing certain parts, which impacted the amount of finished goods we could deliver and our overall revenue growth.  That said, the price increases we enacted through the first and second quarters of 2022 have begun to take effect and, as a result, profitability improved sequentially in the quarter, despite a slightly unfavorable product mix that impacted our consolidated gross margin."

Mr. Miller, II continued, "We continue to be extremely encouraged with the demand for our products and how this contributes to the continued strength in our backlog, as our backlog grew substantially in the second half of 2021 and has remained very stable to date in 2022.  To meet this demand for our products, we are continuing our strategy of accumulating available inventory to service customers and quickly complete and deliver finished goods as soon as part sourcing allows, all while keeping disciplined capital allocation as a top priority.  In the meantime, we will continue to focus on improving operational efficiency, mitigating inflationary impacts, providing excellent service to our customers, and delivering value for all stakeholders."

"Although supply chain pressures are ever present in both our North American and foreign markets, we remain optimistic about our business' long-term fundamentals.  We have yet to see any significant slowdown in demand, despite the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.  While the consequences of the war between Russia and Ukraine, and its ultimate effect on our business, are difficult to predict, we are encouraged by initial demand signals and the fact that the conflict has had limited impact on our European operations thus far," concluded Mr. Miller, II.

The Company will host a conference call, which will be simultaneously broadcast live over the Internet. The call is scheduled for tomorrow, August 4, 2022, at 2:00 PM ET. Listeners can access the conference call live and archived over the Internet through the following link:
