Schiff Nutrition International, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter And Year-End Results

Schiff Nutrition International, Inc., (NYSE: SHF), announced results for the three- and twelve-month periods ended May 31, 2012.

“We are pleased with our fourth quarter performance as it reflects strong execution against our growth strategy,” stated Tarang Amin, president and chief executive officer. “Net sales grew 30%, driven by a 59% increase in our branded business. Our gross profit margin grew 1,100 basis points to 49.5%, reflecting our progress building premium brands, leading innovation, expanding the channel and geographic footprint of the company, pursuing acquisitions, and driving world-class operations. Our probiotics and Airborne ® acquisitions added to the strong contribution of our core brands MegaRed ® and Move Free ®."

Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Results

For the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter ended May 31, 2012, net sales were $67.4 million, compared to $51.9 million for the same period in fiscal 2011. The 30% increase reflects growth in key brands, new product introductions and contribution from acquisitions. Branded sales of $59.9 million were partially offset by an expected decline in the private label business. The higher mix of branded sales resulted in gross profit margin of 49.5%, compared to 38.2% a year ago. Total operating expenses increased to $27.1 million from $14.9 million a year ago reflecting the anticipated increase in selling and marketing expenses and $3.4 million in acquisition related costs, $2.0 million of which was non-deductible for income tax purposes. Net income for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter was $2.0 million, compared to net income of $3.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2011. Earnings per diluted share were $0.07 for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter, compared to $0.10 for the same period in fiscal 2011. Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as income from operations before depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and completed acquisition related costs, was $12.4 million for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter, compared to $7.5 million for the same period in fiscal 2011.
