Unifi Announces Strong Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

04/28/21
Dynamic global business model and robust execution drives better than anticipated performance

GREENSBORO, N.C., April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Unifi, Inc. (NYSE: UFI), one of the world's leading innovators in recycled and synthetic yarns, today released operating results for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended March 28, 2021.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Overview

  • Net sales were $178.9 million, an increase of 4.6% year-over-year, and an increase of 9.9% sequentially from the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
  • Revenues from REPREVE® Fiber products represented 33% of consolidated net sales, compared to 29% for the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Gross profit was $25.6 million, a 66% increase year-over-year, while gross margin was 14.3%, an increase of 530 basis points year-over-year, primarily due to improvements in the Brazil and Asia Segments.
  • Net income was $4.8 million, or $0.25 of diluted earnings per share ("EPS"), up from net loss of $41.1 million, or $2.23 per share, year-over-year.  The prior year results included a $45.2 million impairment charge in connection with the Company's sale of its 34% interest in Parkdale America, LLC ("PAL").
  • Adjusted Net Income1 of $4.8 million and Adjusted EPS1 of $0.25, compared to $4.1 million and $0.22, respectively, for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, which excluded the impairment charge for PAL.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was up 70.1% to $15.9 million, compared to $9.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • On March 28, 2021, debt principal was $89.4 million while cash and cash equivalents were $75.6 million, resulting in Net Debt1 of $13.8 million, a reduction of 86.2% since March 29, 2020.

Eddie Ingle, Chief Executive Officer of Unifi, said, "Third quarter fiscal 2021 results reflected our team's ability to leverage effectively the strength of our global business model during the continued economic recovery. We have remained focused on positioning the business to take advantage of building economic momentum around the world as we return to a more normalized demand environment. Our Brazil segment outperformed expectations again, achieving exceptional profitability with a record 41.2% gross margin driven by strong pricing levels. Our Asia segment also benefited from an improving business climate and recaptured pre-pandemic momentum, allowing the segment to return to top-line growth. We remain confident that the momentum we have generated throughout the recovery will allow us to further improve our long-term profitability. We expect that continued strong results from each of our high-performing businesses, coupled with continued interest in our REPREVE-branded products, will fuel long-term growth."

1 Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt are non-GAAP financial measures. The schedules included in this press release reconcile each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Compared to Third Quarter Fiscal 2020

Net sales were $178.9 million, compared to $171.0 million, bolstered by an increase in sales volumes for the Asia Segment and higher selling prices for the Brazil Segment. REPREVE product sales drove underlying momentum and growth for the Asia Segment. Higher selling prices, in response to local cost and supply dynamics, drove sales growth for the Brazil Segment.

Gross profit increased to $25.6 million, compared to $15.4 million. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to exceptional profitability in Brazil resulting from a strong market position and higher pricing. Additionally, sales mix and cost improvements drove gross profit benefits for the Asia Segment.

Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 increased to $8.6 million, compared to $3.1 million, primarily due to the $10.2 million, or 66%, increase in gross profit. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 includes $4.1 million of higher incentive compensation expense, based on recognition of the maximum annual bonus for fiscal 2021, and a $2.6 million non-cash loss on asset disposals, primarily in preparation for installing new eAFK Evo texturing machinery in the Americas.

Net income was $4.8 million, or $0.25 per share compared to a net loss of $41.1 million, or $2.23 per share.  In connection with the April 2020 sale of the Company's 34% interest in PAL, an impairment charge of $45.2 million was recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.  Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, which exclude the impairment charge, were $4.1 million and $0.22, respectively.

Debt principal was $89.4 million on March 28, 2021, compared to $133.7 million on March 29, 2020. Cash and cash equivalents increased to $75.6 million on March 28, 2021, up from $33.4 million on March 29, 2020, resulting in Net Debt of $13.8 million versus $100.3 million, respectively. The favorable cash and liquidity positions on March 28, 2021 benefited from the $60.0 million of proceeds from the April 2020 sale of the Company's minority interest in PAL, as well as the Company's strong generation of operating cash flows during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Year-To-Date Fiscal 2021 Compared to Year-To-Date Fiscal 2020

Net sales were $483.1 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, compared to $520.5 million. Revenues from REPREVE® Fiber products represented 35% of consolidated net sales, compared to 31%. Gross margin was 13.7% for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, compared to 9.3%. Operating income was $24.6 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, compared to $12.1 million. Net income was $15.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, compared to a net loss of $37.0 million.

Outlook

The Company expects demand levels and trends across the business to remain strong and anticipates current inflationary pressures from raw material fluctuations to be mostly offset by selling price adjustments. The Company's outlook for the June 2021 quarter includes the following expectations:

  • Sales volumes to increase, with net sales improving sequentially from the March 2021 quarter by approximately 1.0% to 3.0%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA to range from approximately $12.0 million to $14.0 million. This range includes consideration for continued underlying business momentum in spite of pandemic uncertainty in addition to an expected reduction from the recent exceptional performance of the Brazil Segment, recent global raw material cost increases that will adversely impact gross profit due to the inherent lag in responsive selling price adjustments, partially offset by a lack of incentive compensation expense due to full recognition during the first nine months of fiscal 2021;
  • An effective tax rate between 45% and 55%; and
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $10.0 million to $12.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures 

Certain non-GAAP financial measures included herein are designed to complement the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures include Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net  Income, Adjusted EPS and Net Debt (together, the "non-GAAP financial measures").

  • EBITDA represents Net income (loss) before net interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense.
  • Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted to exclude equity in earnings of PAL and, from time to time, certain other adjustments necessary to understand and compare the underlying results of UNIFI.
  • Adjusted Net Income represents Net income (loss) calculated under GAAP adjusted to exclude certain amounts. Management believes the excluded amounts do not reflect the ongoing operations and performance of UNIFI and/or exclusion may be necessary to understand and compare the underlying results of UNIFI.
  • Adjusted EPS represents Adjusted Net Income divided by UNIFI's weighted average common shares outstanding.
  • Net Debt represents debt principal less cash and cash equivalents.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The calculations of the non-GAAP financial measures are subjective, based on management's belief as to which items should be included or excluded in order to provide the most reasonable and comparable view of the underlying operating performance of the business. We may, from time to time, modify the amounts used to determine our non-GAAP financial measures.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures better reflect Unifi's underlying operations and performance and that their use, 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.

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 business on a regular basis; (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 a key performance metric utilized in the determination of variable compensation. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate supplemental measure of debt service capacity, because it serves as a high-level proxy for cash generated from operations. Equity in earnings of PAL is excluded from Adjusted EBITDA because such results do not reflect our operating performance.

Management uses Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS (i) as measurements of net operating performance because they assist us in comparing such performance on a consistent basis, as they remove the impact of (a) items that we would not expect to occur as a part of our normal business on a regular basis and (b) components of the provision for income taxes that we would not expect to occur as a part of our underlying taxable operations; (ii) for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget; and (iii) as measures in determining the value of other acquisitions and dispositions.

Management uses Net Debt as a liquidity and leverage metric to determine how much debt would remain if all cash and cash equivalents were used to pay down debt principal.

In evaluating non-GAAP financial measures, investors should be aware that, in the future, we may incur expenses similar to the adjustments included herein. Our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as indicating that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Each of our non-GAAP financial measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and investors should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results or liquidity measures as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are (i) it is not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statements of cash flows; (ii) it does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not indicative of our ongoing operations; (iii) it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (iv) it does not reflect the cash requirements necessary to make payments on our debt; (v) it does not reflect our future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (vi) it does not reflect limitations on or costs related to transferring earnings from our subsidiaries to us; and (vii) other companies in our industry may calculate this measure differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should not 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. Investors should compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using these measures only as supplemental information.

Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements included herein contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of federal securities laws about the financial condition and results of operations of Unifi that are based on management's beliefs, assumptions and expectations about our future economic performance, considering the information currently available to management.  An example of such forward-looking statements include, among others, guidance pertaining to our financial outlook. The words "believe," "may," "could," "will," "should," "would," "anticipate," "plan," "estimate," "project," "expect," "intend," "seek," "strive" and words of similar import, or the negative of such words, identify or signal the presence of forward-looking statements.  These statements are not statements of historical fact, and they involve risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results, performance or financial condition to differ materially from the expectations of future results, performance or financial condition that we express or imply in any forward-looking statement.

Factors that could contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: the competitive nature of the textile industry and the impact of global competition; changes in the trade regulatory environment and governmental policies and legislation; the availability, sourcing and pricing of raw materials; general domestic and international economic and industry conditions in markets where Unifi competes, including economic and political factors over which Unifi has no control; changes in consumer spending, customer preferences, fashion trends and end uses for products; the financial condition of Unifi's customers; the loss of a significant customer or brand partner; natural disasters, industrial accidents, power or water shortages, extreme weather conditions and other disruptions at one of our facilities; the disruption of operations, global demand, or financial performance as a result of catastrophic or extraordinary events, including epidemics or pandemics such as the recent strain of coronavirus; the success of Unifi's strategic business initiatives; the volatility of financial and credit markets; the ability to service indebtedness and fund capital expenditures and strategic business initiatives; the availability of and access to credit on reasonable terms; changes in foreign currency exchange, interest and inflation rates; fluctuations in production costs; the ability to protect intellectual property; the strength and reputation of our brands; employee relations; the ability to attract, retain and motivate key employees; the impact of environmental, health and safety regulations; the impact of tax laws, the judicial or administrative interpretations of tax laws and/or changes in such laws or interpretations; the operating performance of joint ventures and other equity method investments; and the accurate financial reporting of information from equity method investees.

All such factors are difficult to predict, contain uncertainties that may materially affect actual results and may be beyond our control.  New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors or to assess the impact of each such factor on Unifi.  Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made, except as may be required by federal securities laws. The above and other risks and uncertainties are described in Unifi's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, and additional risks or uncertainties may be described from time to time in other reports filed by Unifi with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
