McRae Industries, Inc. Reports Earnings for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2014 PR Newswire MOUNT GILEAD, N.C., Dec. 16, 2013 MOUNT GILEAD, N.C., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --McRae Industries, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MCRAA and MCRAB) reported consolidated net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 of $31,653,000 as compared to $24,864,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Net earnings for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to $3,045,000, or $1.33 per diluted Class A common share as compared to net earnings of $1,943,000, or $0.87 per diluted Class A common share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2014 COMPARED TO FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2013 Consolidated net revenues totaled $31.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to $24.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Sales related to our western/lifestyle boot products for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled $22.3 million as compared to $18.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. This 21% increase net revenues was primarily attributable to continued strong demand for our men and women's branded products. Revenues from our work boot products grew approximately 48%, from $6.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to $9.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 as the production of military boots related to our multiple contracts increased significantly. Revenues associated with our smaller businesses were minimal. We are cautiously optimistic that the improving economy, coupled with our multiple military boot contracts, will have a positive impact on net revenues for the second quarter. Consolidated gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to approximately $10.3 million as compared to $7.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. This increase in gross profit was attributable to both the increase in net revenues and a slight uptick in overall profit margins. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues inched up from 31.7% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to 32.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, primarily attributable to the positive impact that increased production levels associated with the military boot business have on lowering per unit product costs. Consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses totaled approximately $5.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to $4.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. This increase in SG&A expenses resulted primarily from increased expenditures for sales related compensation, travel expenses, professional service costs, product promotion costs, and employee benefit costs, which were partially offset by reduced health insurance charges. As a percentage of net revenues, SG&A expenses fell from 19.3 % for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to 17.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2014. As a result of the above, the consolidated operating profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to $4.8 million as compared to $3.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Financial Condition and Liquidity Our financial condition remained strong at November 2, 2013 as cash and cash equivalents totaled $10.7 million as compared to $10.8 million at August 3, 2013. Our working capital increased from $43.1 million at August 3, 2013 to $45.9 million at November 2, 2013. We currently have two lines of credit with a bank totaling $6.75 million, all of which was fully available at November 2, 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. Our $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 the remainder of fiscal 2014. Net cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to $321,000. Net earnings, as adjusted for depreciation, contributed approximately $3.2 million of cash. Accounts and notes receivable used approximately $3.9 million of cash as strong first quarter sales, primarily attributable to the western and work boot business, outpaced customer payments. Inventory levels in both of our boot businesses used approximately $634,000 of cash as product demand remained strong. The timing of payments for inventory purchases used approximately $349,000 of cash. The payment of accrued sales commissions used approximately $381,000 of cash. The timing of employee benefit and income tax payments provided approximately $2.2 million of cash. Net cash used by investing activities totaled approximately $188,000, primarily for manufacturing equipment, computer equipment and software upgrades. Net cash used in financing activities totaled $219,000, which was used for dividend payments.
