First Quarter 2014 Financial Summary

First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Total sales in the first quarter of 2014 increased 7% to $54.5 million compared to $51.0 million in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily attributed to the retail launch of Black Diamond spring apparel and strong growth from POC ski product.

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2014 increased 70 basis points to 38.4% compared to 37.7% in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to a favorable product and geographic mix and contribution from higher margin products by POC, PIEPS and Black Diamond apparel, partially offset by an 80 basis point impact from foreign exchange fluctuations.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the first quarter increased 8% to $22.6 million compared to $20.9 million in the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by further investment in Black Diamond apparel and POC.

Net loss in the first quarter of 2014 improved to $1.3 million, or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3.0 million, or $(0.10) per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.

Net loss in the first quarter of 2014 included $0.5 million of non-cash items and $0.3 million in transaction-related costs compared to $2.4 million of non-cash items, $0.2 million in restructuring costs, $0.1 million in transaction costs and $0.1 million in merger and integration costs in the year-ago quarter. Excluding these items, adjusted net loss before non-cash items in the first quarter of 2014 was $0.5 million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.3 million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013.
