EAGAN, MN / ACCESSWIRE / February 9, 2023 / Dynatronics Corporation (NASDAQ:DYNT) ("Dynatronics" or the "Company"), a manufacturer of athletic training, physical therapy, and rehabilitation products, today reported financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2023 ended December 31, 2022, and provided an update on the business.
"The year-over-year improvement in gross margin of 8.4% or nearly $1.0 million in gross profit was a solid improvement. We are pleased with our progression, but we have more work to do. New, targeted, and innovative, product releases are the third pillar of our gross margin improvement plan, and we plan to continue to improve our performance in this area," said John Krier, Chief Executive Officer of Dynatronics.
"Our inventory balance was reduced to $10.7 million with a reduction of approximately $1.4 million from the balance on June 30, 2022. Reducing inventory by this level, allowed us to strengthen our supplier relationships with a reduction in accounts payable of approximately $0.9 million in the second quarter. This is an important development as we work to optimize our inventory with selected reductions while preparing for future new product introductions and historical seasonality-related growth expected in our fiscal fourth quarter," concluded Krier.

Guidance for Fiscal Year ‘23
Dynatronics reaffirmed net sales guidance for fiscal year ‘23 of $45 million to $48 million. The midpoint of this range is a 5% improvement over the Company's $44.3 million net sales in fiscal year ‘22. The Company expects the distribution of net sales across the quarters in fiscal year ‘23 to align with historical trends, which are highest in the first quarter, lower in the second and third quarters, with a bounce back in the fourth quarter. The second quarter of fiscal year 2023 continued this historical seasonality trend.
Even as it expects fiscal year '23 to showcase continued improvement toward its 40% long-term goal, given the persistent inflationary pressure and macro-economic impacts the Company is deferring providing gross margin guidance.
Selling, general, and administrative expenses are anticipated to be 30% to 35% of net sales in fiscal year ‘23.
Dynatronics expects to continue its strategic approach to optimize inventory levels with selected reductions while preparing for future new product introductions and historical seasonality-related growth expected in our fiscal fourth quarter. This approach allowed the company to generate positive cash flow from operations of $0.3 million for the first six months of the fiscal year.
The Company's financial guidance for fiscal year '23 is subject to the risks identified in its safe harbor notification below. The Company continues to expect volatility due to the challenges related to the broader economic environment and the COVID-19 global pandemic, including higher raw material, delivery and shipment costs, supply chain disruptions, extended handling times and delays or disruption in procedure volume. Dynatronics also expects some ongoing volatility from the Company's business optimization.
The Company has delivered sales growth that outpaced market growth, and its baseline continued product net sales expectation for the seventh consecutive quarter. Dynatronics employs multiple levers to drive sales growth - by capturing market share, product innovations, and through acquisitions.
