FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tandy Leather Factory, Inc. (Nasdaq:TLF) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2013. Consolidated net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $1.6 million compared to consolidated net income of $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 6%. Fully diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.16, compared to $0.15 in the second quarter of last year. Total sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 were $19.0 million, up 12% from $16.9 million in the second quarter last year.  

Consolidated sales for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $38.2 million, up 9% from 2012's first half sales of $35.1 million. Consolidated net income for the first half of 2013 was up 3% to $3.2 million or $0.32 per fully-diluted share versus $3.1 million or $0.30 per fully-diluted share in the comparable period last year.       

Sales in the Retail Leathercraft segment, which consists of the Tandy Leather stores, increased $1.4 million in the second quarter, a 14% improvement over last year's second quarter. Seventy-eight stores comprised Tandy Leather's operations on June 30, 2013. For the first six months of 2013, Retail Leathercraft's sales increased $2.7 million, or 13%, over the first six months of 2012. Second quarter sales for the Wholesale Leathercraft segment, which consists of the Leather Factory stores and national account group, were up 7%, or $446,000, from the same quarter last year. For the first six months of 2013, Wholesale Leathercraft's sales were up $23,000, or 0.2%, compared to the same period in 2012. International Leathercraft, consisting of three stores located in the United Kingdom, Spain and Australia, reported a sales increase of 32%, or $244,000, compared to the second quarter of 2012. For the year, International Leathercraft's sales were up 30%, or $451,000, over the same period last year. 

Consolidated gross profit margin for the current quarter was 62.8%, down from 64.7% for the second quarter of 2012. For the first two quarters of this year, consolidated gross profit margin was 62.4%, decreasing from last year's gross profit margin of 63.6%. Consolidated operating expenses rose approximately 13% and 9% for the quarter and the year, respectively, or $1.1 million in the current quarter and $1.6 million for the first six months over the same periods a year ago. For the second quarter, the significant increases in expenses occurred in employee compensation and benefits, advertising and marketing, legal fees and loss on disposal of assets. For the year, expenses increases occurred in advertising and marketing, employee compensation, freight out, credit card fees, and property insurance. As a percentage of sales, consolidated operating margin fell for the quarter to 12.4% compared to 14.6% last year. On a year-to-date basis, consolidated operating margin decreased from 14.3% last year to 13% in the current year.

Jon Thompson, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, "Our second quarter results were respectable, reporting solid sales and earnings. We have spent more in advertising this year by combining several flyers into one but producing and mailing more often. Our flyers can have a big impact on our sales as they pull customers into our stores.  We can always cut back on what we spend in this area, but doing so will have a negative impact on our sales. With that said, we are closely analyzing this expense to ensure we are getting the greatest benefit for the dollars we are spending and will make adjustments as necessary. Gross profit margin as a percentage of sales pulled back slightly this quarter, but that is generally due to the mix of products sold. Despite the slight reduction in margins for the quarter and the year, they are still very strong."

Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, Shannon Greene, added, "We moved our flagship store into its new building this quarter which accounted for a few one-time expense increases. Further, legal and professional fees are higher this quarter due to new trademark filings and the board's adoption of a shareholder rights plan – both one-time expenses as well. Despite the increase in operating expenses this quarter, which we are monitoring closely, we believe we are well-positioned for a strong finish as we move through the remainder of the year."
