McRae Industries, Inc. Reports Earnings For Fiscal 2013

MOUNT GILEAD, N.C., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- McRae Industries, Inc. (Pink Sheets:   MCRAA and MCRAB) reported consolidated net revenues for fiscal 2013 of $97,071,000 as compared to $75,684,000 for fiscal 2012.  Net earnings for fiscal 2013 totaled $7,498,000 as compared to $4,842,000 for fiscal 2012.  Net earnings per diluted Class A common share were $3.79 for fiscal 2013 as compared to $2.27 for fiscal 2012.  

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS OF OPERATIONS, FISCAL 2013 COMPARED TO FISCAL 2012

Consolidated net revenues for fiscal 2013 amounted to approximately $97.1 million as compared to $75.7 million for fiscal 2012.  This 28% increase in net revenues was primarily attributable to strong performance in both of our boot product segments. Our western/lifestyle products business grew from $52.5 million for fiscal 2012 to $62.8 million for fiscal 2013 as demand for both men and women's products continued to be heavy. Consolidated net revenues from our work boot product sales increased from $23.0 million for fiscal 2012 to $33.3 million for fiscal 2013 as nearly all of our product lines recorded higher sales than the previous year. This 45% improvement in net revenues was the result of two main factors. First, the rebound of the construction industry in the U.S. had a positive impact on the demand for our traditional work products. Secondly, and more significantly, at the end of fiscal 2012, we received two new military boot contracts which have a base year and four one-year options. In addition, we also received a two year contract with a third year option to manufacture military boots for the nation of Israel. In September 2013, we were the successful bidder on a U.S. Government contract to manufacture boots for the Marines. This contract also has a one year base period and four one-year options. Net revenues associated with our bar code business were insignificant for fiscal 2013 and are expected to be minimal in the future. For fiscal 2014, we are cautiously optimistic that the demand for our western/lifestyle products will remain strong and that the improved economy will have a positive impact on our non-military work boot business. We expect our military boot contracts to provide a solid base for improved net revenue performance for fiscal 2014.  

Consolidated gross profit for fiscal 2013 totaled $29.5 million as compared to $23.4 million for fiscal 2012. This 26% growth in gross profit resulted from increased net revenues associated with both of our boot segments. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues fell from 30.9% for fiscal 2012 to 30.4% for fiscal 2013. This decline in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was primarily the result of higher imported product costs, which was partially offset by improved margins associated with the military boot business. Imported product cost increases are expected to continue to apply pricing pressure which will potentially have an impact on our margins for fiscal 2014.

Consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased nearly 15%, up from $15.7 million for fiscal 2012 to $18.0 million for fiscal 2013. This increase in SG&A expenses was the result of higher support costs associated with the increase in net revenues. As a percentage of net revenues, SG&A expenses for fiscal 2013 totaled 18.5% as compared to 20.7% for fiscal 2012. Increased expenditures for sales related compensation, travel expenses, operating supplies, administrative compensation costs, health insurance coverage, bad debt charges, professional fees, and employee benefit costs were partially offset by reduced outlays for real estate rentals and advertising programs.

As a result of the above, consolidated operating profit for fiscal 2013 totaled approximately $11.5 million as compared to $7.7 million for fiscal 2012.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

At August 3, 2013, our financial condition and liquidity remained strong as cash and cash equivalents totaled $10.8 million as compared to $12.9 million at July 28, 2012.  Our working capital increased from $40.3 million at July 28, 2012 to $44.5 million at August 3, 2013.

We currently have two lines of credit with a bank totaling $6.75 million, all of which were fully available at August 3, 2013.  One credit line totaling $1.75 million (which is restricted to one hundred percent of the outstanding receivables due from the Government) expires in January 2014.  The $5.0 million line of credit, which also expires in January 2014, is secured by the inventory and accounts receivable of our Dan Post Boot Company subsidiary.  

We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents, cash generated from operations, and available credit lines will be sufficient to meet our capital requirements for fiscal 2014.

Net cash provided by operating activities for fiscal 2013 amounted to approximately $1.7 million. Net earnings, as adjusted for depreciation, contributed approximately $8.2 million of cash. The increase in accounts receivable used approximately $3.6 million of cash as a result of the timing of collection related to heavier than normal fourth quarter sales.  Inventory build–up for the fall selling season for our western/work boot unit and to support our new military boot contracts used approximately $3.5 million of cash. The timing of payment for accounts payable, accrued employee benefits, accrued payroll and income tax payments provided approximately $1.7 million of cash  

Net cash used in investing activities totaled approximately $1.5 million. The investment in held-to-maturity securities used approximately $1.0 million of cash. Capital expenditures primarily for manufacturing and warehouse equipment, expansion of the telephone system, and computer related expenditures used approximately $900,000 of cash. Land sales provided approximately $400,000 of cash.

Net cash used in financing activities totaled approximately $2.2 million. Dividend payments totaled approximately $2.1 million and company stock repurchases used approximately $161,000 of cash.
