GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., August 15, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the press release dated August 12, 2022, Scott’s Liquid Gold-Inc. did not provide additional information and reconciliations related to non-GAAP financial measures. Please replace the release with the following corrected version.

The updated release reads:

SCOTT’S LIQUID GOLD-INC. REPORTS SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • Second quarter 2022 net sales of $5.4 million vs. $7.8 million in 2021, including $6.5 million of same brand net sales* in 2021

  • Net loss of $4.3 million in Q2 2022 vs. $1.1 million in 2021

  • Adjusted loss from operations* of $0.6 million in Q2 2022 and Q2 2021

  • Generated operating cash flow of $0.5 million

Scott’s Liquid Gold-Inc. (OTC: SLGD) today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter Financial Results

In the second quarter of 2022, net sales decreased primarily due to the sale of the Dryel brand and the conclusion of our agreement to distribute Batiste products. BIZ sales declined due to continued supply chain disruptions related to our powder booster products. Sales of our Alpha Skin Care products destined for the China market decreased, and subsequent to quarter-end we terminated our relationship with our exclusive distributor in China and commenced a new go-to-market strategy in that region.

Our net loss of $4.3 million was primarily driven by the $3.6 million impairment of goodwill and intangible assets related to our Kids N Pets and Messy Pet product lines.

Despite the decreased sales levels compared to a year ago, our adjusted loss from operations* remained consistent between the second quarter of 2022 versus the same period in 2021 due to various improvements to our cost structure.

Management Commentary

"Despite a challenging operating environment, we remain committed to maximizing our value proposition for consumers across our entire portfolio of brands," said Tisha Pedrazzini, President of Scott’s. "We have reduced overhead and continue to optimize and simplify our production and logistics networks. While inflation and supply chain shortages in select products continue to be a headwind, we continue to pursue marketing strategies that drive conversion while reducing expenditures and providing our customers the value that they have come to count on from Scott’s."

*Indicates a non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to "Exhibit 1 – Non-GAAP Financial Measures" later in this release for definitions of non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the related GAAP measures.

Exhibit 1 – Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following provides definitions and other information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release which may not be the same as or comparable to similar measures presented by other companies:

  • Same brand net sales: Measure of net sales excluding impacts of acquisitions, divestitures, and changes in distributor relationships from year over year comparisons. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, these sales exclude $1.2 million of net sales associated with the Batiste brand we no longer distribute and are summarized under the line item of ‘Excluded net sales’ in the table below for each period presented. Management believes this measure provides investors with a supplemental understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales dollars on a consistent basis.

  • Adjusted loss from operations: Loss from operations excluding the impact of certain costs that are not expected to be incurred on an ongoing basis in future operating periods. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the costs excluded were impairment of goodwill and intangible assets of $3.6 million. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the costs excluded were restructuring costs associated with separation of employees of $0.8 million. These items are summarized under the line item ‘Excluded costs’ in the table below for each period presented. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company's operating efficiency over time.

We use these financial measures internally to evaluate segment and overall operating performance. While we believe that these financial measures are useful in evaluating our underlying business performance and trends, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
