HAMILTON BEACH BRANDS HOLDING COMPANY ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER 2022 RESULTS


GLEN ALLEN, Va., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamilton Beach Brands Holding Company (NYSE: HBB), which operates through its wholly owned subsidiary Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc., today announced results for the second quarter of 2022.

Highlights

Second Quarter 2022 Compared to Second Quarter 2021
Total revenue decreased $7.1 million, or 4.6%, to $147.5 million compared to a record $154.7 million. Sales declined in most of the Company's consumer markets compared to the prior year, which included the favorable impact of U.S. government stimulus checks on consumer spending. Partially offsetting the decline was a revenue increase of $4.1 million, or 37.3%, in the Company's global commercial market, as the foodservice and hospitality industries continued to rebound strongly from pandemic-driven demand softness.

Revenue decreases in the Company's U.S., Latin American and Mexican consumer markets were partially offset by increased revenue in the Canadian consumer market. Also contributing to the decrease in total revenue compared to the prior year was a transition from a company-managed model to a licensing model for the Company's consumer business in Brazil and China, which was completed at the end of 2021.

Ecommerce sales increased 8.3% and accounted for 37.3% of total revenue compared to 32% in the second quarter of 2021.

Gross profit was $32.0 million compared to $28.4 million. Gross profit margin was 21.7% compared to 18.4%, primarily due to the impact of a full quarter of price increases that offset higher product and transportation costs. Additionally, there was a reduction in carrier storage charges compared to the second quarter of 2021.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $26.5 million compared to $27.4 million, primarily due to incremental expenses incurred during the relocation to the Company's new distribution center in the second quarter of 2021 that did not recur. Additionally, expenses decreased for outside services. Overall employee-related costs decreased due to lower accruals for incentive compensation as a result of a decline in the Company's stock price.

Operating profit was $5.4 million compared to $0.9 million.

The effective tax rate on income was (5.8)% compared to 79.1%. The current year amount reflected the favorable impact of reversing interest and penalties on unrecognized tax benefits that were included in the prior year. The reversal was due to a change in the Company's position on an unresolved tax matter related to the Company's Mexican subsidiaries.

Net income was $5.1 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share.

On February 22, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program for up to $25 million of the Company's Class A Common outstanding through December 31, 2023. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company repurchased 151,221 shares at prevailing market prices for an aggregate purchase price of $1.6 million.

Cash Flow and Debt   
For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net cash used for operating activities was $25.5 million compared to cash provided by operating activities of $8.4 million in the prior year, primarily due to net working capital, which was a use of cash of $36.1 million in 2022 compared to providing cash of $14.6 million in 2021. In 2022, trade receivables provided net cash of $19.8 million compared to $45.2 million in the prior year due to the timing of collections and decreased sales in 2022 compared to 2021. Net cash used for inventory and accounts payable combined was $55.9 million in 2022 compared to $30.6 million in 2021. 

Capital expenditures through the second quarter of 2022 decreased to $0.7 million compared to $7.6 million through the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to capital spending for the Company's new distribution center in the prior year that did not recur.

At June 30, 2022, net debt, or debt minus cash and cash equivalents, was $126.3 million compared to $98.1 million at June 30, 2021, and $95.7 million at December 31, 2021, due to higher net working capital.

Outlook
Industry-wide demand for small kitchen appliances in the U.S. has slowed somewhat compared to the Company's previously stated outlook, however, it remains significantly higher than pre-pandemic levels and only slightly softer than 2021. Consumers continue to prepare a significant number of meals and beverages at home as a result of new habits formed during the pandemic, continued remote or hybrid work-from-home practices, a heightened interest in healthy eating, and as a means to control expenses during inflationary times. The global commercial market is expected to continue to rebound strongly from pandemic-driven demand softness.

The Company continues to experience significantly higher transportation and product costs due to inflation and ongoing supply chain constraints. To mitigate rising costs, the Company has implemented additional pricing initiatives that are becoming effective in the third quarter of 2022 and expects to continue to adjust prices as necessary while also remaining competitive with customers and consumers. The Company may not be able to cover all future cost increases with additional pricing initiatives.

Inventory at the end of the second quarter of 2022 is primarily due to supply chain constraints that delayed delivery of some 2021 orders from China and to recently announced retailer inventory rebalancing programs. While the Company's products are not in an overstocked position, overstock levels in other categories are having a near-term impact on retailer reorders overall. The Company's inventory is of good quality. The Company expects to significantly reduce current levels by the end of the year through ongoing placements and purchase order management.

The Company's core business is solid, and it expects each of its strategic initiatives to provide growth in 2022 as it focuses on increasing sales in the premium, home health and wellness, and global commercial markets. Compared to the Company's previous outlook, sales expectations for the second half of 2022 have been adjusted slightly to reflect a somewhat more conservative outlook for consumer demand, while sales expectations for the Company's commercial products assume a continued strong rebound from pandemic-driven softness. The Company continues to expect that revenue for the second half of 2022 will increase modestly compared to the second half of 2021. For the full year 2022, Hamilton Beach Brands continues to expect modest revenue growth compared to record revenue in 2021. Full-year operating profit is expected to increase significantly compared to 2021, which includes a $10 million insurance recovery in the first quarter of 2022.

The Company's current outlook could change depending on how a number of factors in the macro environment ultimately unfold, including retailer inventory rebalancing programs, retailer acceptance of any needed price increases to offset rising product and transportation costs, inflationary pressures, rising interest rates, consumer sentiment, any worsening of supply chain constraints, Covid protocols in China, and the direct or indirect impact of the conflict in Ukraine.  

The Company's six strategic initiatives are focused on long-term growth and value creation. Following is a brief summary of each one.

Expand in Home Health and Wellness: This initiative was added in 2021. During the past year, the Company took many steps to introduce new products in the air purification, water filtration and home medical categories. New products in these categories are expected to generate revenue as they are launched throughout 2022 and into 2023 and gain momentum. To date, the Company has:

Gain Share in the Premium Market: New products and digital marketing are expected to drive growth of the Company's premium brand products. In 2022, the Company plans to launch Generation 2 of the Bartesian® premium cocktail machine, which will provide enhanced functionality, as well as introduce the Bartesian Duet, a smaller 2-bottle model, and a commercial model. The CHI® garment care brand continues to grow as consumers return to offices and engage in more evening and weekend activities following the pandemic receding.

Lead in the Global Commercial Market: The Company expects to generate additional growth in the global commercial market through product development, digital marketing and increasing customer relationships with regional and global chains.

Drive Core Growth: The Company plans to drive growth of its flagship Hamilton Beach® and Proctor Silex® brands through innovative new product development, including an emphasis on higher priced products,  and digital marketing.

Accelerate Digital Transformation: The Company plans to continue to invest in robust digital marketing for all of its brands and markets.

Leverage Partnerships and Acquisitions: The Company is actively engaged in the pursuit of additional trademark licensing agreements, strategic alliances and acquisitions that would drive growth in all of its markets.

Hamilton Beach Brands expects to benefit from a number of strengths and competitive advantages, even during periods of economic downturn. These include:
