Unifi Announces Second Quarter Results
GREENSBORO, N.C., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Unifi, Inc. (NYSE: UFI) today released preliminary operating results for its second fiscal quarter ended December 23, 2012. The Company reported net income of $2.4 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $7.6 million, or $0.38 per share, for the prior year fiscal quarter ended December 25, 2011. Net sales increased $5.0 million, or 3.0%, to $172 million for the December 2012 quarter, compared to net sales of $167 million for the December 2011 quarter.
Highlights for the December 2012 quarter over prior year quarter results include the following:
- Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) improved $4.8 million to $12.2 million;
- Gross profit improved $5.8 million as a result of volume growth in each of the Company’s operating segments;
- Conversion margins improved as a result of the increased volumes in the Company’s premier value-added portfolio; and
- Interest expense decreased $2.9 million as a result of the continuing execution of the Company’s deleveraging strategy.
The Company reported net income of $4.7 million, or $0.23 per share, for the six months ended December 23, 2012, compared to a net loss of $7.3 million, or $0.36 per share, for the prior year period. Net sales increased $6.8 million, or 2.0%, to $345 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2013 compared to net sales of $338 million for the prior year period. Results for the first six months of fiscal 2013 were negatively impacted by a $3.8 million reduction in earnings from the Company’s equity investment in Parkdale America, caused by margin pressures related to the softness in the cotton apparel market and differences in the recognition of earnings under the Farm Bill’s economic adjustment payments program.
“The results in the current quarter reflect the Company’s ability to drive financial improvement in our core business through disciplined process improvement across all of our operating segments and the success of our mix enrichment strategy domestically,” said Bill Jasper, Chairman and CEO of Unifi. “Higher capacity utilization rates and moderating raw materials pricing compared to the prior year quarter resulted in lower operating costs and improved conversion margins. Although we are encouraged that the U.S. economy continued to grow at a modest pace during the December 2012 quarter, we will continue to closely manage our operating rates and inventory in order to respond quickly to any changes in retail demand.”
Cash-on-hand as of December 23, 2012 was $15.2 million, an increase of $4.3 million compared to $10.9 million cash-on-hand as of June 24, 2012. Total debt at the end of the December 2012 quarter was $106.7 million. “We are pleased with the financial and operating results so far in the 2013 fiscal year,” said Ron Smith, Chief Financial Officer of Unifi. “Our continued focus on cash generation and deleveraging has allowed us to reduce outstanding debt as of December 23, 2012 by $14.9 million since June 24, 2012 and resulted in reduced interest expense, while providing us with flexibility to fund future strategic opportunities.”
Subsequent to the end of the fiscal quarter, the Company prepaid the $13.8 million remaining balance outstanding on its Term B loan using cash generated from domestic operations, distributions from Parkdale America and borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The Company’s weighted average interest rate now stands at 3.3%.
Roger Berrier, President and Chief Operating Officer of Unifi, added: “We continue to be on track to double our premier value-added business by 2014, which is an important part of our mix enrichment strategy. REPREVE(®) has been a flagship and success story for the Company, and we are taking a more active approach by marketing to consumers and educating them about the benefits of recycling and choosing products made with recycled content. Since REPREVE is in many winter sports products from companies such as Patagonia, The North Face and Polartec, we will be the recycling partner for X Games Aspen, which will air on ESPN from January 24, 2013 to January 27, 2013. We believe that this exposure will help accelerate the momentum that we have for REPREVE with our brand and retail partners.”

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
Included in this presentation are certain non-GAAP financial measures designed to complement the financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) because management believes such measures are useful to investors.
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates and Adjusted EBITDA
EBITDA represents net income or loss attributable to Unifi, Inc. before income tax expense, net interest expense, and depreciation and amortization expense (excluding interest portion of amortization). Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates represents EBITDA adjusted to exclude non-cash compensation expense net of distributions, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, loss on previously held equity interest, refund of Brazilian non-income related tax, operating expenses for Repreve Renewables and certain other adjustments. Other adjustments include gains or losses on sales or disposals of property, plant and equipment, currency and derivative gains or losses, restructuring and employee severance expenses, and certain other non-operating income or expense items. Adjusted EBITDA represents Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates adjusted to exclude equity in earnings and losses of unconsolidated affiliates. We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our operating performance. We also present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe such measure is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates and Adjusted EBITDA are alternative views of performance used by management and we believe that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by disclosing these performance measures. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA: (i) as a measurement of operating performance because it assists us in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of (a) items directly related to our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and (b) items that we would not expect to occur as a part of our normal operating business; (ii) for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget; (iii) as a valuation measure for evaluating our operating performance and our capacity to incur and service debt, fund capital expenditures and expand our business; and (iv) as one measure in determining the value of other acquisitions and dispositions. Adjusted EBITDA is also a key performance metric utilized in the determination of variable compensation.
We believe that the use of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates, and Adjusted EBITDA as operating performance measures provides investors and analysts with a measure of operating results unaffected by differences in capital structures, capital investment cycles, and ages of related assets, among otherwise comparable companies. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate supplemental measure of debt service capacity, because cash expenditures on interest are, by definition, available to pay interest, and tax expense is inversely correlated to interest expense because tax expense decreases as deductible interest expense increases; depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges. Equity in earnings and losses of unconsolidated affiliates is excluded because such earnings or losses do not reflect our operating performance. The other items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are excluded in order to better reflect the performance of our continuing operations.
In evaluating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses similar to the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates, and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.
Each of our Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:
- it does not reflect our cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
- it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
- it does not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
- although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and our Adjusted EBITDA (or our Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates) measure does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
- it is not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statements of cash flows;
- it does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not indicative of our ongoing operations;
- it does not reflect limitations on or costs related to transferring earnings from our subsidiaries to us; and
- other companies in our industry may calculate this measure differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Because of these limitations, neither of Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA Including Equity Affiliates should be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or as a measure of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations, including those under our outstanding debt obligations. You should compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental information.
