June net sales of $10.0 million support improving revenue outlook while $1.1 million quarterly SG&A reduction reflects the impact of the continuing operational improvements

July net sales of $10.8 million continue strong recovery trajectory for the third quarter

AUBURN HILLS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / August 13, 2020 / Unique Fabricating, Inc. ("Unique Fabricating" or the "Company") (NYSE American:UFAB), a leader in engineering and manufacturing multi-material foam, rubber, and plastic components utilized in noise, vibration, and harshness management and air/water sealing applications for the transportation, appliance, consumer, and medical markets, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Net sales of $14.8 million compared to $38.9 million in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Net loss of $4.3 million or $0.44 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $7.6 million or $0.78 per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Net debt(1) decreased $5.4 million to $45.8 million as of June 30, 2020, inclusive of $4.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, compared to $51.2 million as of June 30, 2019, inclusive of $1.1 million of cash and cash equivalents.
  • Restructuring charges of $0.3 million primarily related to sale and closure of the Evansville, Indiana owned facility compared to $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2019 primarily related to executive severance.
  • Interest expense decreased $0.7 million to $0.6 million compared to prior year of $1.3 million.

"The COVID-19 situation had a significant negative impact on our second quarter results with $24.1 million lower sales and the corresponding impact on operating profit," said Doug Cain, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During this quarter, we completed our targeted restructuring activities, reduced our fixed cost structure, increased our plant productivity and efficiencies, and completed our executive leadership team. In combination with all of the improvement activities, our new bank loan amendment provides sufficient liquidity and a strong foundation for the Company to focus its efforts fully on profitable growth going forward. We saw a meaningful increase in our net sales in June to $10.0 million with the corresponding positive impact on operating profit. Our July net sales of $10.8 million support our view to a much improved third quarter and second half of 2020 with continued sustainable positive operating profits and operating cash flows to reduce debt. Our comprehensive operational improvement and cost reduction activities are in place and we are prepared to efficiently manage the increasing volumes."

"Beginning in April, we were able to adapt some of our manufacturing capacity to new personal protective equipment products with sales of $1.4 million in the quarter," Cain continued. "Our team is supporting the medical and manufacturing communities with our new production of N95 face masks begun in late July which highlights our competencies to produce solutions utilizing our multi-material and multi-process capabilities. The latest North America auto production second half forecasts as well as the positive market trends for home building and home remodeling driving our appliance business support our view to a much stronger second half of 2020 for the Company."

Cain concluded "We believe the worst is behind us. The activities we began in the second half of last year and continued in 2020 positioned us to weather the storm successfully. Despite the significant challenges presented by COVID-19 over the last months, we remain committed to our ‘Boldly Back on Track' initiatives. We move into the second half of 2020 and beyond with our targeted restructuring activities behind us, a capable and committed organization, improving liquidity, and a lean cost competitive geographic footprint."

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Summary
Net sales for the quarter were $14.8 million, down 62% or $24.1 million from $38.9 million during the same period last year. The 2020 decrease was attributable to lost sales resulting from customer shutdowns in April and May 2020 with a ramp up beginning in June due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the $14.8 million net sales, $10.0 million were in June. The $10.8 million net sales in July reinforces our confidence in a rebound.

Gross profit for the quarter was $1.7 million, or 11.8% of total net sales, compared to $8.2 million, or 21.1% of net sales, for the corresponding period last year. The loss of contribution margin on the $24.1 million lower sales is the primary cause of the lower gross profit margin.

Restructuring expense for the second quarter of 2020 was $0.3 million and primarily related to the sale and closure of the Company's owned facility in Evansville, Indiana, compared to $0.7 million in restructuring expense incurred in the same period last year.

Net loss of $4.3 million or $0.44 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $7.6 million or $0.78 per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2019, which included a $6.8 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge. The decrease in net loss is the result of the 2019 impairment charge not recurring, a $1.1 million reduction in SG&A expenses, despite $0.3 million in severance charges, as a result of comprehensive cost reduction efforts, $0.5 million lower restructuring charges, and $0.7 million lower interest expense. These improvements were more than offset by the impact of the $24.1 million decrease in net sales year-over-year due to COVID-19.

Balance Sheet Summary
As of June 30, 2020, the Company had approximately $4.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to June 30, 2019 and December 29, 2019 when the Company had $1.1 million and $0.6 million, respectively, in cash and cash equivalents. Total debt outstanding as of June 30, 2020 was $50.5 million compared to $52.3 million as of June 30, 2019 and $47.5 million as of December 29, 2019. The increase in cash and cash equivalents and outstanding debt since December 29, 2019 is primarily attributable to the $6.0 million loan the Company received pursuant to the U.S. Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") under Title I of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. As of June 30, 2020 the Company had $2.5 million of proceeds from the PPP loan in cash and cash equivalents.

2020 Outlook
The latest North American third-party service automotive production forecasts for the second half of the year are at approximately 90% of initial 2020 volumes. If this automotive production forecast level for the second half of 2020 holds, we expect to generate improved operating cash flows, reflecting actions taken to date. Supporting this level of activity, our July sales were approximately $10.8 million. We note that projected results are subject to substantial uncertainty regarding the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy and our industry, as well as other factors referenced in "Forward Looking Statements." There can be no assurance that our results will not vary significantly from our current expectations.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We present Net Debt, a non-GAAP financial measure, in this press release to provide a supplemental measure of our financial position. We believe that Net Debt is a useful measure of the Company's credit position and progress toward reducing leverage. The calculation is limited in that the company may not always be able to use cash to repay debt on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

We present Adjusted EBITDA in this press release to provide a supplemental measure of our operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash stock awards, goodwill impairment, non-recurring integration expense, restructuring expenses, and one-time consulting and licensing ERP system implementation costs as we implement a new ERP system at all locations. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance and earnings on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) can provide alone. Our board and management also use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the primary methods for planning and forecasting overall expected performance and for evaluating on a quarterly and annual basis actual results against such expectations, and as a performance evaluation metric in determining achievement of certain compensation programs and plans for Company management. In addition, the financial covenants in our senior secured credit facility are based on Adjusted EBITDA, as presented in this press release, subject to dollar limitations on certain adjustments and certain other addbacks permitted by our senior secured credit facility.

These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and these measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for analysis of Unique Fabricating's results as reported under GAAP.
