Universal Electronics Reports Record Results for the Second Quarter 2019

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 8, 2019-- Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI), (NASDAQ: UEIC), the worldwide leader in sensing and control technologies for the smart home, reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

Paul Arling, UEI’s chairman and CEO, stated, “Our record second quarter results and 19% year-over-year net sales growth reflect increases across the board, notably in subscription broadcasting, consumer electronics (CE), and home security. Our customers are beginning to more rapidly adopt advanced, 2-way, IP-connected home entertainment systems. Further, new and existing customers recognize UEI as the voice technology expert. As such, we are selected for sophisticated new device initiatives that require greater intellectual property and carry higher average selling prices. In addition to this transition in home entertainment, our home automation business continues to gain traction. In 2019, we are positioned to deliver the best year in our history.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended June 30: 2019 Compared to 2018

  • GAAP net sales were $193.9 million, compared to $162.5 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales were $193.4 million, compared to $162.4 million.
  • GAAP gross margins were 17.5%, compared to 16.5%; Adjusted Non-GAAP gross margins were 25.2%, compared to 22.1%.
  • GAAP operating loss was $3.9 million, compared to $9.9 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP operating income was $15.8 million, compared to $4.6 million.
  • GAAP net loss was $5.1 million, or $0.37 per share, compared to a net income of $22.7 million or $1.60 per share; Adjusted Non-GAAP net income was $11.7 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share.
  • At June 30, 2019, cash and cash equivalents were $49.6 million.

Bryan Hackworth, UEI’s CFO, stated, “We are very pleased with our strong second quarter results and expect this positive momentum to continue into the third quarter. The transition of the manufacturing of U.S.-bound product is nearly complete with most of the associated costs behind us. As planned, we are now optimizing efficiency at our Mexico facility. As a company, we remain focused on the development of products, technologies and new markets that will continue to drive growth.”

Financial Outlook

For the third quarter of 2019, the company expects GAAP net sales to range between $188 million and $198 million, compared to $182.7 million in the third quarter of 2018. GAAP earnings per diluted share for the third quarter of 2019 are expected to range from $0.31 to $0.41, compared to GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.07 in the third quarter of 2018.

For the third quarter of 2019, the company expects Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales to range between $188 million and $198 million, compared to $182.7 million in the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are expected to range from $0.85 to $0.95, compared to Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.80 in the third quarter of 2018. The third quarter 2019 Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share estimate excludes $0.54 per share related to, among other things, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, changes in contingent consideration relating to acquisitions, foreign currency gains and losses, excess manufacturing overhead and factory transition costs, additional Section 301 U.S. tariffs on goods manufactured in China, 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, they help 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, 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 and adjustments to certain deferred tax assets resulting from tax incentives at one of our China factories. 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.

Includes incremental revenues and costs directly attributable to the additional Section 301 U.S. tariffs implemented in 2018 on goods manufactured in China and imported into the U.S. as well as costs incurred for the movement of factory equipment and other costs of countermeasures undertaken by the company to modify its manufacturing operations and supply chain.

(2)

 

The three and six months ended June 30, 2019 include excess manufacturing overhead costs incurred as a result of expanding our manufacturing capacity in Mexico and transitioning certain of our manufacturing activities from China to Mexico. In addition, included are direct manufacturing inefficiencies incurred in Mexico as we were still in a start-up phase through the second quarter of 2019. The three and six months ended June 30, 2018 include excess manufacturing costs incurred resulting from factory underutilization associated with ceasing manufacturing activities while transitioning our Asia operations onto our new global ERP system, which went live in Asia in April 2018. Additionally, the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 include $4.8 million of asset write-downs associated with the closure and sale of our Guangzhou factory.

(3)

 

Consists of depreciation related to the mark-up from cost to fair value of fixed assets acquired in business combinations.

(4)

 

The six months ended June 30, 2019 includes net deferred tax asset adjustments resulting from a lower statutory tax rate due to tax incentives at one of our China factories.
