Universal Electronics Reports Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2019 Financial Results

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 20, 2020-- Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI), (NASDAQ: UEIC) reported financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019.

“In 2019, we posted the highest annual Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales and EPS in our 34-year history of $751.7 million and $3.55, respectively,” said Paul Arling, UEI’s chairman and CEO. “Over the past year, we invested in innovation to increase our competitive edge and drive long-term growth; we enriched our product mix to favor higher margin advanced solutions; and we implemented initiatives to improve productivity globally. Our efforts to increase profitability are coming to fruition, as we achieved our highest gross and operating margins in four years. Combined with strategic product development, we have better positioned UEI to flourish in the ever evolving and expanding arena of sensing and control technologies for the smart home in 2020 and beyond.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31: 2019 Compared to 2018

  • GAAP net sales were $174.7 million, compared to $170.3 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales were $174.8 million, compared to $168.3 million.
  • GAAP gross margins were 28.5%, compared to 22.0%; Adjusted Non-GAAP gross margins were 29.3%, compared to 28.7%.
  • GAAP operating income was $11.5 million, compared to $2.6 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP operating income was $17.3 million, compared to $16.4 million.
  • GAAP net income was $7.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $11.1 million or $0.80 per diluted share; Adjusted Non-GAAP net income was $12.8 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, compared to $11.7 million, or $0.84 per diluted share.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $45.3 million for the fourth quarter and $85.3 million for the year, both records for UEI.

Financial Results for the Twelve Months Ended December 31: 2019 Compared to 2018

  • GAAP net sales were $753.5 million, compared to $680.2 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales were $751.7 million, compared to $678.5 million.
  • GAAP net income was $3.6 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $11.9 million or $0.85 per diluted share; Adjusted Non-GAAP net income was $50.1 million, or $3.55 per diluted share, compared to $29.7 million, or $2.11 per diluted share.

Financial Outlook

For the first quarter of 2020, excluding any potential impact related to the COVID-19 virus, the company expects GAAP net sales to range between $170 million and $180 million, compared to $184.2 million in the first quarter of 2019. GAAP earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2020 are expected to range from $0.36 to $0.46, compared to GAAP loss per diluted share of $0.07 in the first quarter of 2019.

For the first quarter of 2020, excluding any potential impact related to the COVID-19 virus, the company expects Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales to range between $170 million and $180 million, compared to $182.7 million in the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are expected to range from $0.90 to $1.00 compared to Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.82 in the first quarter of 2019.

The COVID-19 virus may impact first quarter 2020 by shifting up to $10 million of net sales to second quarter 2020. As a result, EPS for the first quarter of 2020 may be lower by $0.12 to $0.15 per share. Management is working diligently to mitigate any negative impact; however, the final outcome remains uncertain at this time.

The first quarter 2020 Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share estimate excludes $0.54 per share related to, among other things, additional Section 301 U.S. tariffs on goods manufactured in China, excess manufacturing overhead and factory transition costs, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, changes in contingent consideration relating to acquisitions, foreign currency gains and losses, restructuring costs and the related tax impact of these adjustments. For a more detailed explanation of Non-GAAP measures, please see the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Metrics discussion and the Reconciliation of Adjusted Non-GAAP Financial Results, each located elsewhere in this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Metrics

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, UEI provides Adjusted Non-GAAP information as additional information for its operating results. References to Adjusted Non-GAAP information are to non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are not required by, in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. UEI’s management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of UEI, for budget planning purposes, and for making operational and financial decisions and believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, helps investors evaluate UEI’s core operating and financial performance and business trends consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. Additionally, management believes these measures facilitate comparisons with the core operating and financial results and business trends of competitors and other companies.

Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales is defined as net sales excluding the revenue impact of the additional Section 301 U.S. tariffs on products manufactured in China and imported into the U.S. and the impact of stock-based compensation for performance-based warrants. Adjusted Non-GAAP gross profit is defined as gross profit excluding the impact of the additional Section 301 U.S. tariffs on products manufactured in China and imported into the U.S. and costs of implementing countermeasures to mitigate this impact, excess manufacturing overhead and factory transition costs, impairment expenses related to the disposal of the company's Ohio call center, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation expense related to the increase in fixed assets from cost to fair market value resulting from acquisitions and amortization of intangibles acquired. Adjusted Non-GAAP operating expenses are defined as operating expenses excluding costs incurred related to implementing countermeasures to mitigate the impact of the additional Section 301 U.S. tariffs on products manufactured in China and imported into the U.S., stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles acquired, changes in contingent consideration related to acquisitions and employee related restructuring and other costs. Adjusted Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income excluding the aforementioned items, foreign currency gains and losses, the net gain recognized on the sale of the company's Guangzhou factory, the related tax effects of all adjustments as well as the effect of certain net deferred tax asset adjustments and income tax expense representing the impact of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Adjusted Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is calculated using Adjusted Non-GAAP net income. A reconciliation of these financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release.
