FAIRFIELD, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / February 10, 2022 / Jerash Holdings (US), Inc. ("Jerash") (NASDAQ:JRSH), which manufactures and exports custom, ready-made sportswear and outerwear for leading global brands, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 third quarter, ended December 31, 2021.

Financial Highlights - Fiscal 2022 Third Quarter Versus Fiscal 2021 Third Quarter

  • Record revenue of $36.8 million, an increase of 78.2 percent.
  • Gross profit of $6.9 million, an increase of 186.7 percent.
  • Gross margin of 18.8 percent, vs. 11.7 percent.
  • Net income of $1.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, vs. $94,000, or $0.01 per diluted share.

Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Revenue Guidance

  • Fiscal 2022 fourth quarter revenue is expected to be in the range of $29 million to $31 million, vs. $23.8 million in fiscal 2021 fourth quarter.

"Continued strong demand from our global brand customers, along with our expanded manufacturing capacity, resulted in a significantly greater number of shipments during the third quarter," said Sam Choi, Jerash's chairman and chief executive officer. "As a result, we reported record high third quarter revenue, along with sharply increased profitability that, in part, reflected increased orders from higher margin, branded products.

"Our strong performance is also attributable to a loyal, dedicated and highly skilled workforce, including approximately 500 new employees who joined Jerash from our recently acquired operation, MK Garments," said Choi. "It is gratifying that our progress is continuing and highly visible, with our existing factories in Jordan essentially booked through July 2022, and inquiries coming in from new customers that market quality global brands."

Early in the third quarter, Jerash announced it had completed the acquisition of MK Garments, which operates a 71,000 square-foot manufacturing facility. The company assumed production at the facility in August 2021 and retained its employees.

Gilbert Lee, chief financial officer of Jerash, added, "We will continue to explore opportunities to further expand our manufacturing capacity in a prudent and strategic manner, based on commitments for new business from our existing and established customer prospects. Our balance sheet and cash position remain strong, with an added $6.3 million in net proceeds from a public offering of common stock that was completed in October 2021."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results

Fiscal 2022 third quarter revenue rose 78.2 percent to a record $36.8 million, from $20.7 million in the same period last year, primarily due to higher shipments to the company's two largest customers resulting from stronger demand and expanded capacity.

Gross profit increased 186.7 percent to $6.9 million in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, from $2.4 million in the same period last year. Gross margin expanded 710 basis points to 18.8 percent in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, up from 11.7 percent in the same period last year, reflecting a higher proportion of export sales to global brand customers in the U.S. with higher profit margin.

Operating expenses totaled $4.6 million in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, versus $2.4 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to higher headcount following the completion of the acquisition of MK Garments in October 2021, an increase in stock-based compensation, and recruitment for new migrant workers.

Operating income rose to $2.3 million in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, up from $48,000 in the same period last year. Net income advanced to $1.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, growing from $94,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Comprehensive income attributable to Jerash's common stockholders increased to $1.7 million in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, from $111,000 in the same period last year.

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Dividends

Cash and restricted cash totaled $34.4 million, and net working capital was $57.7 million as of December 31, 2021. Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $4.4 million for the fiscal 2022 third quarter, compared with $2.0 million for the same period last year.

On February 4, 2022, Jerash approved a regular quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share on its common stock, payable on February 22, 2022, to stockholders of record as of February 15, 2022.
