Supreme Industries Reports Significantly Improved 2012 Earnings

The Company reported full-year income from continuing operations of $11.8 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared with last year’s income from continuing operations of $1.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Net income for the full year improved to $11.8 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared with net income of $0.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share in 2011, which included the impact from discontinued operations.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 5.9% for the year ending Dec. 29, 2012, substantially lower than statutory rates due to the reversal of deferred tax asset reserves and the use of net operating loss carryforwards. Reported financial results in 2011 included an income tax benefit of $0.4 million recorded in the fourth quarter, resulting from expiring state statues related to uncertain tax positions. Beginning with the first quarter of 2013, the Company expects to recognize income taxes at more normalized rates.

Working capital was $38.6 million at Dec. 29, 2012, up from $35.4 million at Dec. 31, 2011. The working capital ratio was 2.7 to 1 versus 2.0 to 1 for the respective periods. During 2012, Supreme invested $7.1 million in facilities and equipment to enhance efficiencies and $6.1 million to exercise two related-party lease purchase options. On Dec. 19, 2012, the Company entered into a five-year revised cash flow credit agreement increasing its line of credit to $45 million with improved liquidity, availability and interest rate pricing. Total debt declined to $14.1 million at year end, compared with $15.9 million last year. Stockholders’ equity increased 22% to $67.2 million, or $4.41 per share, at Dec. 29, 2012, compared with $54.9 million, or $3.71 per share, at Dec. 31, 2011. Net cash provided by operating activities during 2012 totaled $12.4 million, compared with $14.5 million in 2011.

As disclosed in the second quarter of 2012, the Company self-identified an immaterial error related to revenue recognition. Accordingly, its consolidated financial statements reflect the correction of the immaterial error.
