Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended October 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter and Full Fiscal Year 2015

Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended October 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $108,446,000 compared to $139,294,000 a year ago. The expected decrease was a result of lower consumer demand and competitors' excess inventory at distributor and retailer locations, which followed an earlier surge period when consumers purchased firearms in anticipation of possible additional restrictive regulations. Operating income was $10,835,000 compared to $28,774,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $5,091,000 or $0.09 per diluted share compared to $17,145,000 or $0.28 per diluted share a year ago. Net income was $5,050,000 or $0.09 per diluted share compared to $16,987,000 or $0.28 per diluted share a year ago. Income from operations was $5,050,000 compared to $16,987,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBITDAS was $18,746,000 compared to $36,628,000 a year ago. For the six months, the company reported net sales of $240,315,000 compared to $310,314,000 a year ago. Operating income was $36,605,000 compared to $76,788,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $19,708,000 or $0.36 per diluted share compared to $43,671,000 or $0.69 per diluted share a year ago. Net income was $19,606,000 or $0.35 per diluted share compared to $43,463,000 or $0.68 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $3,428,000 compared to $23,983,000 a year ago. Payments to acquire property and equipment were $21,200,000 compared to $26,075,000 a year ago. Payments to acquire patents and software were $84,000 compared to $81,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $19,606,000 compared to $43,463,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBITDAS was $52,446,000 compared to $91,809,000 a year ago. For the third quarter of fiscal 2015, excluding the impact of the BTI acquisition, the company expects net sales to be between $113.0 million and $118.0 million and GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of between $0.09 and $0.11. If the BTI transaction is finalized in mid-December 2014 as planned, earnings per diluted share for the fiscal third quarter would decrease by approximately $0.05 as the company would be required to fully amortize backlog in that short period and pay expenses related to the transaction. For full fiscal 2015, excluding the impact of the BTI acquisition, the company expects net sales to be between $504.0 million and $508.0 million and GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of between $0.66 and $0.70. If the BTI transaction is finalized in mid-December 2014 as planned, net sales for the full year would increase by between $13.0 million and $16.0 million and earnings per diluted share would decrease by approximately $0.05.
