Skullcandy Announces Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Results

PARK CITY, Utah, March 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skullcandy, Inc. (Nasdaq:SKUL) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013.

Fourth quarter Results

  • Net sales were $72.2 million
  • Gross margin was 43.5%
  • Net income was $0.13 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $0.13 per diluted share

"2013 was a year of tremendous positive change geared toward executing our turnaround strategy. We now have a clear long-term vision for transforming Skullcandy and Astro Gaming into the most innovative brands in audio through obsessing about our consumers, disruptive technologies, and creative branding," said Hoby Darling, President and Chief Executive Officer of Skullcandy. "The year was capped off by a strong fourth quarter performance focused on reinforcing our brand ethos and positioned the business for long-term success. The great work the team has done establishing a new direction for the Company speaks volumes about our people and our culture and the foundation we are building. With our five key growth pillars established and a clear understanding of our consumer, where we will innovate and focus, and a segmented distribution strategy, it is now about executing. We are confident we can achieve our vision of being a global audio leader while delivering profitable growth, increased shareholder value and living by our core values."

Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 decreased 28.4% to $72.2 million from $101.0 million in the same quarter of the prior year. North America net sales decreased 30.3% to $57.6 million from $82.7 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Consistent with the strategy stated in previous quarters, these results were driven by the Company's actions to significantly cut sales to the off-price channel, aggressively enforce its MAP pricing online, and control inventory levels with its customers. International net sales decreased 19.9% to $14.7 million from $18.3 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Included in the North America segment in fourth quarter 2013 and fourth quarter 2012 are net sales of $0.7 million and $7.4 million, respectively, of products that were sold from the United States to customers with a "ship to" location outside of North America. Including these sales in the international segment, international net sales decreased 40.2%, and North America net sales decreased 24.4%, compared to the same quarter in the prior year.
