Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

DANIA BEACH, Fla., July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vapor Corp. (OTCQB:VPCO; "Vapor", the "Company" or "we"), a leading U.S. based electronic cigarette company whose brands include Krave®, Fifty-One®, VaporX®, Alternacig®, EZ Smoker®, Green Puffer®, Americig®, Fumare™, Hookah Stix™ and Smoke Star®, today announced its financial and operating results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Financial Highlights for the six months ended June 30, 2013

Net sales were approximately $12.5 million, a decrease of $0.5 million, or approximately 3.5%. The decrease in sales is primarily attributable to decreased sales to a distributor, net of increased sales to new and other existing distributors, wholesale customers and increased direct to consumer sales. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 we initiated sales to the distributor referenced above. Sales, net to that distributor for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 were approximately $1.1 million and $3.5 million, respectively, a decrease of approximately $2.3 million or 67.1%. At June 30, 2013 we had unfilled orders of approximately $1.5 million from wholesale and distributor customers, which will be fulfilled in the third quarter of 2013.

Cost of goods sold decreased 9.4% to approximately $7.4 million as compared to the six month period in the previous year, primarily resulting from lower sales volume as well as a change in product mix and lower average cost per unit through higher volume purchases from suppliers.

Gross margins increased to 40.8% from 36.9% in the same six month period in the prior year as a result of the above factors.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2013 decreased by approximately $151,000 or 4.6% to approximately $3.2 million from the same six month period in the prior year primarily due to a decrease in professional and consulting fees as a result of decreases in legal fees due to the settlements and the stay of litigation matters.

Advertising expense decreased 13.8% to approximately $1.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, we decreased our Internet advertising and print advertising campaigns, and increased our new television direct marketing campaign for our Alternacig® brand and continued various other advertising campaigns.

Operating income was $221,483 compared to operating losses of $534,588 for the same six-month period in the prior year.

Interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was $143,409 and $1,829 respectively. The increase was attributable to the senior convertible notes and the senior we issued during 2012 and the senior convertible note we issued in January 2013.

Income tax expense (benefit) for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was $9,180 and ($159,966), respectively.

Net income (loss) for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was $68,894 and ($376,451), respectively, as a result of the items discussed above.

 

Financial Highlights for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013

Net sales were approximately $6.2 million, a decrease of approximately $2.0 million, or approximately 24% from the same quarter in the preceding year. The decrease in sales is primarily attributable to decreased sales to the distributor referenced above, net of increased sales to new and other existing distributors, wholesale customers and increased direct to consumer sales. During the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 sales, net to a new distributor were $695,117 and $3,117,804, respectively, a decrease of $2,422,687 or 77.8%.

Cost of goods sold decreased approximately 33.1% to approximately $3.7 million as compared to the same quarter in the previous year, primarily resulting from decreased sales volume, product mix and lower average cost per unit through higher volume purchases from suppliers.

Gross margins increased to 39.8% from 31.7% in the same quarter in the prior year as a result of the above factors.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 decreased to approximately $1.6 million, or approximately 14.4% from the same quarter in the prior year primarily due to a decrease in professional and consulting fees as a result decreased legal expenses attributable to the settlements and the stay of litigation matters.

Advertising expense decreased approximately 15% to approximately $0.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same quarter in 2012.  During the quarter ended June 30, 2013, we decreased our Internet advertising and print advertising campaigns, and increased our new television direct marketing campaign for our Alternacig® brand and continued various other advertising campaigns.

Kevin Frija, Chief Executive Officer of Vapor Corp, commented, "During the second quarter of 2013 we continued expansion of our soft flex tip™ filters and Krave product Line. We introduced the rechargeable Krave King and demand for our products continued to grow. At the end of the second quarter we had unfilled order of approximately $1.5 million from wholesale and distributor customers."

Looking ahead, Mr. Frija stated, "Consumer demand for our products remains strong and interest in our diverse line of products is growing.  We remain committed to investing in the growth of the company and its brands as well as gaining greater brand awareness among the vaping community and investors. We believe quality, value and thoughtful innovation and improvements in product, such as our rechargeable Krave King with soft flex tip™ filters, set us apart from the competition. We have experienced strong consumer reaction to these features and we expect to attract new customers and see an increase in repeat orders."
