VOXX International Corporation Reports Its Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter and Nine-Month Financial Results

Montag, 09.01.2017 22:15 von

PR Newswire

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), today announced financial results for its Fiscal 2017 third quarter and nine-months ended November 30, 2016. 

Net sales for the Fiscal 2017 third quarter were $198.9 million compared to $192.5 million reported in the comparable year-ago period, an increase of $6.4 million or 3.3%. 

  • Automotive segment sales were $90.3 million as compared to $92.6 million, a decline of $2.2 million or 2.4%.  This decline was primarily related to lower aftermarket and domestic OEM sales, offset by sales increases in the Company's international OEM business.
  • Premium Audio segment sales were $56.8 million as compared to $44.7 million, an increase of $12.0 million or 26.9%.  This increase was driven by higher sales of new product lines introduced throughout Fiscal 2017, including sound bars, multi-room streaming audio systems, headphones, as well as speakers within the Custom Installation channel, among others. 
  • Consumer Accessories segment sales were $51.4 million as compared to $54.8 million, a decline of $3.4 million or 6.2%.  The sales decline was primarily related to lower sales of select hook-up, power and remote products, offset by higher sales of wireless and Bluetooth speakers, Project Nursery baby monitors, and 360Fly™ Action Cameras, among others.

Pat Lavelle, President and CEO of VOXX International, commented, "We had a relatively strong fiscal third quarter, as our net sales, gross margins and expenses all improved year-over-year.  We reported a $3.7 million increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA improved by $2.4 million. Driving much of this improvement was our Premium Audio segment.  The investments we made throughout last year to enhance our line-up and expand into new categories are paying off, and with a few quarters of growth behind us, we believe this is a trend that should continue.  Lower Automotive segment sales were anticipated, due primarily to changes in the aftermarket and lower domestic OEM sales.  Internationally, our OEM business remains strong and we continue to win new OEM contracts. Similarly, our Consumer Accessories segment should be aided by new products introduced in the second and third quarters and many of the products we introduced last week at the Consumer Electronics Show.  We believe we're better positioned to show improved top- and bottom-line performance in the year ahead."

The gross margin for the Fiscal 2017 third quarter came in at 29.3% as compared to 29.0% for the same period last year, an increase of 30 basis points.  Automotive gross margins came in at 30.0% as compared to 29.2%, an increase of 80 basis points, which was driven primarily by higher international OEM sales offset by lower fulfillment product sales, such as satellite radio.  Premium Audio gross margins came in at 32.8% as compared to 33.9%, a decrease of 110 basis points.  The decline in gross margin was primarily related to a shift in product mix within the segment.  Consumer Accessories gross margins were 23.6% as compared to 24.1%, a decline of 50 basis points.  Gross margins were adversely impacted by a shift in product mix and favorably impacted by higher sales of wireless speakers, Project Nursery products, and higher sales internationally.

Operating expenses for the Fiscal 2017 third quarter were $50.9 million as compared to $52.3 million, a reduction of $1.4 million or 2.6%.  Selling, general and administrative expenses declined for the comparable periods by $2.3 million, and this improvement was partially offset by a $1.8 million increase in engineering and technical support.  The Company experienced decreases in salary, payroll and benefit expenses, as well as lower professional fees, occupancy costs and acquisition-related expenses.  Driving the increase in engineering and technical support were higher research and development expenses related to its iris-based authentication solutions, and increases to support technology innovation within the Automotive OEM business and Premium Audio operating segment.

The Company reported operating income of $7.3 million in its Fiscal 2017 third quarter as compared to operating income of $3.6 million in the comparable year-ago period.  The $3.7 million year-over-year improvement was driven by higher sales and gross margins, and lower total operating expenses. 

Net income attributable to VOXX for the Fiscal 2017 third quarter was $5.8 million or $0.24 per basic and diluted share, as compared to $7.8 million or $0.32 per basic and diluted share in the Fiscal 2016 third quarter.  Note, net income in the Fiscal 2016 third quarter was favorably impacted by a $4.7 million bargain purchase gain related to the Company's acquisition of EyeLock, among other factors. 

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") for the Fiscal 2017 third quarter was $15.3 million as compared to EBITDA of $16.8 million reported in the Fiscal 2016 third quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA was $15.5 million as compared to $13.1 million for the comparable Fiscal 2017 and 2016 third quarter periods.

Nine-Month Comparisons (for the nine-month periods ended November 30, 2016 and November 30, 2015)

Net sales for the Fiscal 2017 nine-month period were $513.7 million compared to $511.1 million reported in the comparable year-ago period, an increase of $2.6 million or 0.5%.

  • Automotive segment sales of $251.6 million declined by $15.2 million or 5.7%.  The Company experienced higher international OEM sales which were offset by lower domestic OEM sales and lower aftermarket product sales.  Additionally, the sale and subsequent licensing of all Jensen Mobile inventory in Fiscal 2016 resulted in approximately $6.4 million of the total decline.
  • Premium Audio segment sales of $123.8 million increased by $19.5 million or 18.7%, driven by strength in the Company's Klipsch and Jamo product lines.  Premium Audio sales were favorably impacted by new product introductions in new categories.
  • Consumer Accessories sales of $137.4 million decreased by $1.3 million or 0.9%.  The Company had higher sales of new products, including Project Nursery baby monitors and 360Fly Action Cameras, as well as higher sales internationally, offset by a decline in select Consumer Accessories product lines.  Additionally, international sales increased, primarily due to the roll out of an upgrade to the digital broadcasting platform in Europe.

The gross margin for the Fiscal 2017 nine-month period was 29.4% as compared to 29.1% for the same period last year, an increase of 30 basis points.  Automotive gross margins were 30.4% as compared to 30.0%; Premium Audio gross margins were 33.3% as compared to 33.0%; and Consumer Accessories gross margins were 23.5% as compared to 24.0%.

Operating expenses for the Fiscal 2017 nine-month period were $151.4 million as compared to operating expenses of $152.9 million in the comparable year-ago period, a reduction of $1.5 million or 1.0%.  Selling, general and administrative expenses declined by $4.3 million, while engineering and technical support expenses increased $9.8 million, both when comparing the Fiscal 2017 and Fiscal 2016 nine-month periods.  Additionally, during the Fiscal 2016 nine-month period, the Company recorded intangible asset impairment charges of $6.2 million and $0.8 million associated with acquisition costs. 

The Company reported an operating loss of $0.6 million as compared to an operating loss of $4.1 million in the Fiscal 2016 nine-month period, an improvement of $3.4 million.  As noted above, intangible asset impairment charges and acquisition related expenses were $7.0 million during the Fiscal 2016 nine-month period. 

The Company reported net income attributable to VOXX for the Fiscal 2017 nine-month period of $4.5 million or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, as compared to $2.7 million or $0.11 per basic and diluted share for the comparable Fiscal 2016 period.  Net income for the Fiscal 2016 nine-month period was favorably impacted by a $4.7 million bargain purchase gain related to the Company's acquisition of EyeLock, among other factors. 

EBITDA for the Fiscal 2017 nine-month period was $22.1 million as compared to EBITDA of $19.8 million reported in the comparable Fiscal 2016 period, an improvement of $2.4 million.  Adjusted EBITDA was $22.7 and $22.8 million for the comparable Fiscal 2017 and 2016 nine-month periods.

Lavelle continued, "Sales through the first nine-months are up modestly and we expect to show year-over-year improvements in our fiscal fourth quarter as well.  We continue to control costs, while investing strategically in R&D to drive innovation in future product lines.  We have a strong line-up for the coming fiscal year in both our Premium Audio and Consumer Accessories segments and will be entering new markets throughout the year, which over time, will expand our distribution even further.  Customer relationships remain strong and the economic environment has been more stable than in years past.  We look forward to finishing out the year and believe we're in a good position entering Fiscal 2018 to maximize shareholder value."

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Diluted Adjusted EBITDA per common share are not financial measures recognized by GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss), computed in accordance with GAAP, before interest expense and bank charges, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, impairment charges and certain acquisition related expenses and gains. Depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and impairment expenses are non-cash items.

Diluted Adjusted EBITDA per common share represent the Company's diluted earnings per common share based on Adjusted EBITDA.

We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Diluted Adjusted EBITDA per common share in this Form 10-Q because we consider them to be useful and appropriate supplemental measures of our performance. These measures help us to evaluate our performance without the effects of certain GAAP calculations that may not have a direct cash impact on our current operating performance. In addition, the exclusion of costs or gains relating to the Company's acquisitions, impairments and stock-based compensation, allows for a more meaningful comparison of our results from period-to-period. These non-GAAP measures, as we define them, are not necessarily comparable to similarly entitled measures of other companies and may not be an appropriate measure for performance relative to other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be assessed in isolation from or construed as a substitute for EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA and diluted adjusted earnings per common share are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company will be hosting its conference call on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. ET.  Interested parties can participate by visiting www.voxxintl.com, and clicking on the webcast in the Investor Relations section or via teleconference (toll-free number: 877-303-9079; international: 970-315-0461 / conference ID: 43538882).  For those unable to join, a replay will be available approximately four hours after the call has been completed and will last for one week (replay number: 855-859-2056; international replay: 404-537-3406 / conference ID: 43538882).
