Mar 15, 2016, 16:30 ET from McRae Industries, Inc.

MOUNT GILEAD, N.C., March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- McRae Industries, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MCRAA and MCRAB) reported consolidated net revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 of $28,801,000 as compared to $28,067,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2015.  Net earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 amounted to $1,399,000, or $0.68 per diluted Class A common share as compared to $1,457,000, or $0.71 per diluted Class A common share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2015.  

Consolidated net revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2016 totaled $60,531,000 as compared to $57,306,000 for the first six months of fiscal 2015. Net earnings for the first six months of fiscal 2016 amounted to $3,394,000, or $1.61 per diluted Class A common share, as compared to net earnings of $3,804,000, or $1.78 per diluted Class A common share, for the first six months of fiscal 2015.

SECOND QUARTER FISCAL 2016 COMPARED TO SECOND QUARTER FISCAL 2015

Consolidated net revenues totaled $28.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $28.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Sales related to our western/lifestyle boot products for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 totaled $16.3 million as compared to $18.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. This 11% decrease in net revenues is primarily a result of decreased sales in our children's boots and premium western boots. Revenues from our work boot products grew approximately 28%, from $9.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 to $12.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 as the production of military boots related to our multiple government contracts continues to increase.   

Consolidated gross profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 amounted to approximately $7.3 million as compared to $7.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was down from 25.8% for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 to 25.5% for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. This is primarily due to the fact that lower margin military boots make up a greater percentage of overall sales, which has driven the margin down over the same quarter last year.

Consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses totaled approximately $5.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $4.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. This increase in SG&A expenses resulted primarily from increased expenditures for professional services and heath insurance costs.

As a result of the above, the consolidated operating profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 amounted to $2.2 million as compared to $2.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015.

FIRST SIX MONTHS FISCAL 2016 COMPARED TO FIRST SIX MONTHS FISCAL 2015

Consolidated net revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2016 totaled $60.5 million as compared to $57.3 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015. Our western and lifestyle product sales totaled $34.7 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016 as compared to $37.8 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015, with the decrease coming from declines in our children's and premium western boot sales. Net revenues from our work boot business grew from $19.5 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015 to $25.7 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016. This increase in work boot products net revenues resulted primarily from higher military boot shipments associated with our U. S. Government contracts and commercial sales.

Consolidated gross profit totaled $16.0 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016 as compared to $16.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015. Gross profit attributable to our western and lifestyle products totaled $12.5 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016, down from $13.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015. This decrease in gross profit is directly correlated with the decrease in sales. Our work boot products gross profit grew from $2.9 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015 to $3.4 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016. This increase was driven by the higher military boot shipments mentioned above.

Consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses totaled approximately $10.6 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016 as compared to $10.0 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015. This increase in SG&A expenses resulted primarily from increased expenditures for professional services and heath insurance costs.

As a result of the above, the consolidated operating profit amounted to $5.4 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016 as compared to $6.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015.

Financial Condition and Liquidity

Our financial condition remained strong at January 30, 2016 as cash and cash equivalents totaled $12.4 million as compared to $15.4 million at August 1, 2015. Our working capital increased from $49.7 million at August 1, 2015 to $51.2 million at January 30, 2016.

We currently have two lines of credit with a bank totaling $6.75 million, all of which was fully available at January 30, 2016. 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 2017. Our $5.0 million line of credit, which also expires in January 2017, 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 the remainder of fiscal 2016.

For the first six months of fiscal 2016, operating activities used approximately $0.6 million of cash. Net earnings, as adjusted for depreciation, contributed approximately $3.8 million of cash. Accounts and notes receivable, as adjusted for valuation allowances, used approximately $0.3 million of cash as a result of timing of payments related to the western and work boot business. Increased inventory levels in both of our boot businesses used approximately $2.1 million of cash. Accounts payable, employee benefit distributions, accrued payroll and payroll taxes, and income tax payments used approximately $2.0 million of cash.

Net cash used by investing activities totaled approximately $1.7 million, primarily for a building addition and manufacturing equipment. 

Net cash used in financing activities totaled $0.7 million, which was mainly used for dividend payments.
