Stanley Furniture Announces First Quarter 2012 Operating Results

Stocks in this article: STLY

Commenting on the results, Glenn Prillaman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are pleased with our continued progress operationally and our first quarter of positive year over year sales growth since 2006. The top-line growth and the further improvements to our cost structure support our strategic direction and confirm our team’s ability to execute in both of our operating models. We have made significant progress over the last five quarters and are closing in on profitability. Our efforts to promote both brands during the first quarter were met with success and we continue to focus our efforts on regaining the confidence of our retail and interior design partners who continue to tell us our products are becoming a better value in the marketplace. We protected the strength of our balance sheet early in our transition and as our recovery becomes more apparent, we continue investing in the areas of our business that we believe will create long-term shareholder value.”

Balance Sheet

Cash and restricted cash on hand at quarter-end was $11.8 million, down from $17.3 million at December 31, 2011. Capital investments associated with modernizing our domestic manufacturing facility in Robbinsville, NC and our information systems totaled $2.2 million during the first quarter. Working capital, excluding cash and restricted cash, increased to $31.5 million from $28.8 million at year-end 2011.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the company received $9.5 million in CDSOA proceeds and expects the remaining $30.5 million by April month end. “As we have said many times before, we do not need these funds to execute our strategy,” commented Micah Goldstein, Chief Operating and Financial Officer. “While it does secure the strength of our balance sheet, returning to profitability and generating cash from operations remain our primary objectives,” he concluded.

Outlook

In closing, Prillaman remarked, “Despite the fact that we do not see the consumer confidence we would like driving more sales for upscale wood residential furniture, we are energized about the initiatives we have underway to continue to improve how we service our customers and expand our brands’ reach in the marketplace. The recently announced consolidation of our corporate offices into a newly remodeled, multi-purpose facility in downtown High Point; our decision to attend our first Vegas Market in January 2013; and our continuing to enhance the value of our product offerings all position the company for growth without a substantial increase of administrative expenses. Although we don’t expect to be profitable in the second quarter we do expect to show continued financial improvements, remembering that the second quarter is traditionally a slower period for our top line,” concluded Prillaman.
