Flexsteel Reports Strongest First Quarter In History

Stocks in this article: FLXS

Flexsteel Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLXS) today reported net sales of $104.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, an increase of 14% from the prior year quarter. Residential net sales increased approximately 16% to $84.0 million in the current quarter, primarily due to increased sales of upholstered and ready to assemble products. Commercial net sales increased approximately $1.4 million or 8% to $20.3 million.

Net income for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $3.8 million or $0.51 per share compared to $2.9 million or $0.40 per share for the prior year quarter.

Gross margin as a percent of net sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was 22.7% compared to 23.1% for the prior year quarter. The decrease of 0.4% is primarily due to changes in product mix and price discounting on certain traditional case goods to improve operating efficiency. The discounting may continue for the remainder of the fiscal year as we realign inventory to focus on growth opportunities.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses as a percent of net sales for the current quarter improved to 17.5% from 18.3% in the prior year quarter. The percentage decrease reflects fixed cost leverage on higher sales volume offset by increased legal costs of $0.4 million related to an Indiana civil lawsuit. In addition, the prior year quarter included approximately $0.5 million of executive transition costs.

Working capital (current assets less current liabilities) at September 30, 2013 was $117.2 million compared to $113.7 million at June 30, 2013. Changes in working capital from June 30, 2013 to September 30, 2013 include increases in inventory of $4.7 million, accounts receivable of $2.9 million and current liabilities of $3.9 million. The higher inventory levels support increased residential sales volume and expanded product offerings. The accounts receivable increase is primarily due to higher sales volume in the current quarter and the timing of collections.
