Skullcandy Announces First Quarter 2013 Financial Results PARK CITY, Utah, May 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skullcandy, Inc. (Nasdaq:SKUL) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. First Quarter Results *Net sales were $37.1 million *Net loss was ($0.25) per diluted share *Non-GAAP adjusted net loss was ($0.23) per diluted share "While our first quarter results were in line with expectations, there is still much work to be done in order to improve on our recent performance," stated Hoby Darling, President and CEO. "Skullcandy rapidly expanded its share of the headphone category the past few years driven in large part by a disruptive market position and strong brand equity within action sports. We now need to broaden our growth pillars in order to evolve as an audio leader and expand the category. Our go-forward plans will focus on developing more technology driven, consumer innovative products, creating deeper connections with consumers through authentic and clear brand messages, and winning at the point of sale. Through diligent focus on these key areas, combined with establishing a balanced distribution platform, we believe we can achieve our near-term operating goals while setting the Company up to deliver consistent sales and earnings growth over the long-term." Net sales in the first quarter of 2013 decreased 30.4% to $37.1 million from $53.3 million in the same quarter of the prior year.North America net sales decreased 37.9% to $28.7 million from $46.1 million in the same quarter of the prior year. The prior year's first quarter was aided by lower retail customer inventory coming out of the holiday season and a packaging change that led to higher sales, creating a challenging year over year quarterly comparison.Further, the Company chose to scale back its sales to the highly discounted off-price channel by approximately 67%. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in gaming net sales of 43.8%.International net sales increased 17.5% to $8.4 million from $7.1 million in the same quarter of the prior year.Included in the North America segment in Q1 2013 and Q1 2012 are net sales of $2.1 million and $3.4 million, respectively, that were sold from North America to customers with a "ship to" location outside of North America.Adjusting these sales into the international segment, international net sales are flat year over year. Gross profit in the first quarter of 2013 decreased 35.6% to $16.5 million from $25.6 million in the same quarter of the prior year.Gross profit as a percentage of net sales, or gross margin, was 44.5% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to 48.1% in the first quarter of 2012.The decrease in gross margin is primarily due to a write off of $0.8 million related to end of life products ("EOL").Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2012 balances to conform to the 2013 presentation so as to better reflect where these costs should reside in the statement of operations.For this reason, tooling depreciation and warranty related expenses are being included in cost of goods sold for all comparable periods. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses in the first quarter 2013 increased 9.0% to $26.3 million from $24.1 million in the same quarter of the prior year.As a percentage of net sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to 71.0% from 45.3% in the same quarter of the prior year. SG&A expenses in the first quarter 2013 include $1.2 million in certain severance related expenses.During the three months ended March 31, 2013, the Company recorded a loss of $2.0 million related to disposals of property and equipment for certain EOL products. Income (loss) from operations decreased to ($9.8 million) from $1.5 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Net loss attributable to Skullcandy, Inc. in the first quarter of 2013 was ($7.0 million), or ($0.25) per diluted share, based on 27.7 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.Net income attributable to Skullcandy, Inc. in the same quarter of the prior year was $1.1 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, based on 27.9 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.Excluding certain severance related expenses, non-GAAP adjusted net loss in the first quarter of 2013 was ($6.3 million), or ($0.23) per diluted share based on 27.7 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.For a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) to net income (loss), see the accompanying tables at the end of this release.

Forward-Looking Statements Certain statements in this press release and oral statements made from time to time by representatives of the Company are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In particular, statements regarding the Company's guidance, outlook, future financial and operating results and any other statements about the Company's future expectations, beliefs or prospects expressed by management are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations and beliefs, but they involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements.Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations are disclosed under the "Risk Factors" section of the 2012 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 13, 2013.Readers are urged not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update or alter any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise Non-GAAP Measures Non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per share, for the periods presented, represents diluted net income per share excluding the impact of severance expenses associated with the departure of the Company's former Chief Executive Officer and the settlement of litigation. Management does not believe these expenses correlate to the underlying performance of the business. As a result, the Company believes that non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per share provides important additional information for measuring its performance, provides consistency and comparability with the Company's past financial performance, facilitates period to period comparisons of the Company's operations, and facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. The Company's management team uses these metrics to evaluate the Company's business and believes they are a measure used frequently by securities analysts and investors. Non-GAAP adjusted net income and adjusted fully diluted earnings per share do not represent, and should not be used as a substitute for net income and diluted earnings per share, as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company's method of calculating non-GAAP adjusted net income and adjusted fully diluted earnings per share may differ from that of other companies. -Financial Tables Follow- SKULLCANDY, INC.
