Exhibit 99.1


UNIFI®, Makers of REPREVE®, Provides Business Update and Schedules Third Quarter Fiscal 2023 Earnings Conference Call


Company expects double-digit sequential quarter improvement in revenue and profitability


GREENSBORO, N.C., April 24, 2023 – Unifi, Inc. (NYSE: UFI) (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “UNIFI”), makers of REPREVE and one of the world’s leading innovators in recycled and synthetic yarns, today announced preliminary results for its third fiscal quarter ended April 2, 2023 and scheduled its third quarter fiscal 2023 earnings conference call.


For the third quarter of fiscal 2023, UNIFI expects the following results, compared to the immediately preceding second quarter of fiscal 2023:


Net sales between $155 million and $157 million, a sequential quarter increase of 14% to 15%;
Gross profit between $9 million and $10 million, a sequential quarter improvement from a gross loss of $8 million;
Operating loss between $2 million and $3 million, a sequential quarter improvement of $17 million to $18 million; and
Adjusted EBITDA between $4 million and $5 million, a sequential quarter improvement of $17 million to $18 million.


Eddie Ingle, Chief Executive Officer of UNIFI, said, “We are very pleased with our sales and profitability results in the third fiscal quarter, which demonstrate significant sequential recovery in our financial metrics and underlying business momentum. While the demand environment remains subdued, our diligence around labor efficiency, working capital management, liquidity resources, and tactical execution has allowed us to capitalize on some of the initial normalization of apparel production that has occurred thus far in calendar 2023.”


Ingle concluded, “REPREVE consistently garners interest from premier brands and retailers, as customer programs and development activities resonate with industry leaders. We expect to continue experiencing improvements in volumes and operating performance as we move through calendar 2023 and customer ordering patterns further stabilize. Our liquidity position and our credit facility that was amended, expanded, and extended in October 2022 continue to provide significant maneuverability for the current operating environment and our mid-







and long-term strategic growth initiatives. We ended the third quarter of fiscal 2023 with approximately $50 million in cash, net debt of $86 million, and over $45 million of available borrowings under the credit facility.”


The preliminary, unaudited information contained herein remains subject to confirmation and finalization based on UNIFI’s quarter-end closing procedures, including the execution of internal controls over financial reporting and the subsequent occurrence or identification of events prior to the formal issuance of the quarterly financial statements.
