Select Financial Highlights (unaudited) - Six Months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022

  • Net sales were $9.1 million in the first six months of 2023, compared with $10.2 million in the same period for 2022

    • Gross margins were 18% in the first half of each year, as lower revenues for the first half of 2023 were partially offset by improved efficiencies including automation in the manufacturing process

Business Highlights First Six-Months 2023

  • Sales of balloons rebounded slightly during the second quarter, offsetting some of the first quarter weakness in commercial films
  • Sales from commercial films improved during the second quarter
  • Orders for balloon-inspired gift items have been growing, a trend we expect to continue
  • The reduction in helium pricing is expected to generate increased balloon sales during remainder of 2023 vs. 2022
  • Continued investment in robotic technology to enhance operational efficiencies - second manufacturing line install expected to be completed imminently with a third line installation expected by end of Q1 2024
  • Ongoing prototype development of Yunhong Biotech's compostable material solutions

LAKE BARRINGTON, IL / ACCESSWIRE / August 2, 2023 / Yunhong CTI Ltd. (Nasdaq:CTIB) ("Yunhong CTI" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of custom film packaging products, novelty balloons, and candy and balloon gift solutions, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2023. Management will host a conference call to discuss these results and other matters on Thursday, August 3, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. Central Time / 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Management Commentary

"Upcoming holiday order indications have been robust, and balloon sales rebounded in the second quarter to beat the comparable quarter of 2022, but continued to be negatively impacted by elevated helium prices," said Frank Cesario, Chief Executive Officer, Yunhong CTI. "While our commercial films sales disappointed in the first quarter as this product category has historically experienced significant fluctuation, we benefited from much improved results in the second quarter which were slightly higher than the second quarter of 2022. Overall traction for balloon-inspired gift items has been growing, though notably Valentine's Day shipments for this year were completed in December 2022, while last year the shipments went into January 2022. This makes comparability a little more difficult, but overall order volumes have been growing and we seek to continue that trend."

Commenting further, Cesario stated, "Our corporate rebranding continues, as we continue down the development path of adding degradable and compostable solutions to our future offerings into the retail channel. Additionally, we asked our shareholders to approve changing our company name from Yunhong CTI Ltd. to Yunhong Green CTI Ltd, and have reserved the ticker symbol ‘YHGJ' to reflect this new identity."

Non-GAAP Results

To provide additional information regarding the Company's results, we have disclosed in this press release a Non-GAAP measure that combines EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization) as well as results excluding deconsolidation charges and certain non-recurring charges and benefits. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings (loss) before net interest, other expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization expense. The Company has included EBITDA as a supplemental financial measure in this press release because it is a key measure used by management and the board of directors to understand and evaluate the core operating performance of the Company, to prepare budgets and operating plans, and because management believes such measure provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results. However, the use of EBITDA as an analytic tool has its limitations and you should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP. A reconciliation to the closest GAAP statement of this non-GAAP measure is contained in the accompanying table. Similarly, management and the board of directors look at the results of the entity going forward, without the impact of deconsolidation costs related to the disposal of subsidiaries and related non-cash charges, which can be significant. Again, this pro forma result is not a replacement for the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP. It simply provides another viewpoint that may otherwise be obscured by a comprehensive presentation. A reconciliation between this pro forma result and our financial results as reported under GAAP is also presented.
