Katy Industries, Inc. Reports 2013 First Quarter Results

BRIDGETON, Mo., May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Katy Industries, Inc. (OTC BB: KATY) today reported a net loss in the first quarter of 2013 of $0.8 million, or $0.10 per share, versus a net loss of $2.3 million, or $0.28 per share, in the first quarter of 2012.  Loss from continuing operations was $1.4 million in both the first quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2012.  Operating loss was $1.3 million, or 6.9% of net sales, in the first quarter of 2013, compared to $1.3 million, or 7.3% of net sales, for the same period in 2012. 

Financial highlights for the first quarter of 2013, as compared to the same period in the prior year, included:

  • Net sales in the first quarter of 2013 were $18.2 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 1.1%, compared to the same period in 2012.  The decrease was a result of two less shipping days during the first quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  There was a volume shortfall in our Wilen business unit which was offset by a volume increase in our Continental business unit. 
  • Gross margin was 13.3% in the first quarter of 2013, a decrease from 14.5% in the first quarter of 2012.  The decrease in gross margin was primarily a result of the sales mix for the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the first quarter of 2012.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $0.6 million lower in the first quarter of 2013 than in the first quarter of 2012.  The decrease was primarily due to one-time asset impairments for the three months ended March 30, 2012 and lower legal costs for the three months ended March 29, 2013.

Operations used $1.8 million of free cash flow in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $1.9 million during the same period a year ago.  Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, is discussed further below.

Debt at March 29, 2013 was $12.3 million, versus $10.9 million at December 31, 2012.

"During the first quarter of 2013 we successfully completed the closure of our last underperforming business," said David J. Feldman President & CEO of Katy Industries. "Going forward we will continue our commitment to our core business and remain focused on additional operational improvements that will move us towards profitability in the future."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To provide transparency about measures of Katy's financial performance which management considers most relevant, the Company supplements the reporting of Katy's consolidated financial information under GAAP with a non-GAAP financial measure, Free Cash Flow.  Free Cash Flow is defined by Katy as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to a comparable GAAP measure is provided in the "Statements of Cash Flows" accompanying this press release. This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, the other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Using only the non-GAAP financial measure to analyze the Company's performance would have material limitations because its calculation is based on the subjective determinations of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find material.  Management compensates for these limitations by utilizing both the GAAP and non-GAAP measures reflected below to understand and analyze the results of its business. Katy believes this measure is nonetheless useful to management and investors in measuring cash generated that is available for repayment of debt obligations, investment in growth through acquisitions, new business development and stock repurchases.
