Dec 15, 2010, 16:30 ET from McRae Industries, Inc.

MOUNT GILEAD, N.C., Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- McRae Industries, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MRINA and MRINB) reported consolidated net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 of $19,740,000 as compared to $17,041,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2010. Net earnings for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 amounted to $1,281,000, or $.59 per diluted Class A common share as compared to net earnings of $1,037,000, or $.49 per diluted Class A common share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.  

FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2011 COMPARED TO FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2010

Consolidated net revenues totaled $19.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 as compared to $17.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The growth in net revenues resulted from increased sales in both of our boot product segments. Our western/lifestyle boot products grew from $11.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 to $12.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 as demand for these products remained strong. In addition, revenues related to our work boot products increased from $5.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 to $7.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2011. This improvement in net revenues was primarily attributable to increased military boot requirements for the U.S. Government and to a slight uptick in demand for our John Deere work boot products.

Consolidated gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 amounted to $6.2 million as compared to $5.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The growth in gross profit was primarily attributable to the increase in net revenues. In addition, lower per unit manufacturing costs related to increased military boot production levels had a positive impact on gross margin for the current reporting period.

Consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were approximately $4.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 as compared to $3.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 The increase in SG&A expenses resulted primarily from increased expenditures for sales salaries and commissions, travel expenses, sales and marketing costs, administrative salaries and  employee benefit related charges.

As a result of the above, the consolidated operating profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 amounted to $2.1 million as compared to $1.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

Financial Condition and Liquidity

Our financial condition remained strong at October 30, 2010 as cash and cash equivalents totaled $6.7 million as compared to $9.9 million at July 31, 2010. Our working capital amounted to $33.8 million at October 30, 2010 as compared to $33.9 million at July 31, 2010.

We currently have two lines of credit with a bank totaling $4.75 million, all of which was fully available at October 30, 2010. 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 2011. The $3.0 million line of credit, which expires in November 2011, 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 2011.

Net cash used by operating activities for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 amounted to $2.8 million. Net earnings, as adjusted for depreciation, contributed approximately $1.4 million of cash. Accounts and notes receivable used approximately $3.4 million of cash as strong first quarter sales, primarily attributable to the western and work boot business, outpaced customer payments. Planned increased inventory levels in our western/ work boot business coupled with higher military boot inventories used approximately $1.0 million of cash.  The reduction in accounts payable used $536,000 of cash primarily for the payment of inventory purchases. The timing of employee benefit payments provided approximately $319,000 of cash. The payment of accrued sales commissions used approximately $403,000 of cash. Income tax payments provided approximately $849,000 of cash.

Net cash used by investing activities totaled approximately $217,000. Capital expenditures used $48,000 of cash primarily for manufacturing, office and computer equipment. Land improvements used $171,000 of cash.

Net cash used in financing activities totaled $185,000, which was used for dividend payments.
