Unique Fabricating, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

AUBURN HILLS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2021 / Unique Fabricating, Inc. (NYSE American:UFAB), a leader in engineering and manufacturing multi-material foam, rubber, and plastic components utilized in noise, vibration, and harshness management and air/water sealing applications for the transportation, appliance, medical, and consumer markets, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Net sales of $34.8 million compared to $34.7 million in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Net loss of $1.1 million or $0.11 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $2.3 million or $0.24 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Net debt(1) increased $(6.7) million to $52.0 million as of March 31, 2021, from $45.3 million as of March 31, 2020; the 2021 amount includes the $6.0 million PPP loan.
  • Interest expense decreased $1.0 million to $0.7 million compared to the prior year period of $1.7 million.

"We increased both gross profit and operating income from the year ago period on essentially flat revenues reflecting our continued focus on cost reduction, efficiency, and consolidation activities," said Doug Cain, President and Chief Executive Officer. "These improvements also helped us offset the impacts in our customer markets and our supply chains from the well-documented microchip and other raw material availability issues negatively affecting volumes and costs. We are also continuing to deal with the lingering impact of COVID-19, including a challenging labor market."

"Based on current third-party forecasts reflecting the increased negative impact from the microchip shortage, we believe our second quarter revenue will be lower than our first quarter revenue," added Mr. Cain. "Light duty vehicle inventory levels remain significantly below historical norms and retail sales, while strong, are constrained by inadequate new vehicle supply. We are optimistic that we are nearing the low-water mark in our top line projections and that we will see improvements in the second half of 2021 and into 2022. The size of the revenue increases in the second half of 2021 are dependent upon our customers' abilities to secure sufficient microchip supply and successfully manage supply chain disruptions that are likely to continue in the second half of 2021."

"We believe we enter the second quarter of 2021 poised to generate improved results when our markets strengthen and our volumes increase," added Mr. Cain. "The industry forecast underscores the pent-up demand in the second half of 2021 and all of 2022. We remain encouraged by the strength in the home building and home remodeling industries where we have been capturing market share and volumes continue to be robust even as supply has also been running behind demand."

First Quarter 2021 Financial Summary
Net sales for the quarter were $34.8 million, up $0.1 million from $34.7 million during the same period last year. Sequentially, net sales were $0.2 million lower than the $35.0 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2020. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $5.9 million, or 16.8% of net sales, compared to $5.6 million, or 16.1% of net sales, for the same period last year. Sequentially, gross profit improved compared to the $5.0 million, or 14.4% of net sales, in the fourth quarter of 2020, reflecting improved direct labor costs.

Net loss was $1.1 million or $0.11 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $2.3 million or $0.24 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2020. The narrowing of the net loss reflects the $0.9 million lower restructuring expenses related to the previously completed facility closures and $1.0 million lower interest expense as the first quarter of 2020 was impacted by a significant decline in LIBOR futures, which resulted in higher interest expense from our interest rate swap. The lower restructuring and interest rate expenses were partially offset by higher income tax expense in the first quarter of 2021 as a result of a valuation allowance in the U.S. and higher income in other tax jurisdictions compared to the first quarter of 2020. Sequentially, the net loss increased in the first quarter of 2021 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 primarily as a result of higher income tax expense, which was partially offset by higher gross profit and lower selling, general, and administrative expenses in the first quarter of 2021 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.

Balance Sheet Summary
As of March 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $2.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2020 when the Company had $1.1 million and $0.8 million, respectively, in cash and cash equivalents. Total debt outstanding as of March 31, 2021 was $54.7 million compared to $46.4 million as of March 31, 2020 and $50.4 million as of December 31, 2020. Included in total debt at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 is the $6.0 million Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan received in the second quarter of 2020. We applied for forgiveness in the fourth quarter of 2020 and we believe we will qualify for full forgiveness from the U.S. Small Business Administration sometime in 2021.

As previously disclosed, we entered into a Forbearance Agreement with our lenders under which, during a period commencing on April 9, 2021 and through and including June 15, 2021, the Company will be able to borrow on its revolving line of credit, subject to the terms and conditions for making a revolving credit advance, including availability, and the Lenders have agreed, subject to the terms of the Forbearance Agreement, to forbear from enforcing their rights or seeking to collect payment of the Company's debt or disposing of the collateral securing the debt. The Company intends to use the forbearance period to continue negotiations with the Lenders to enter into an amendment and waiver to cure the defaults. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to enter into an amendment or waiver with the Lenders or if it enters into an amendment, what the terms, restrictions, and covenants of the amendment will contain.

2021 Outlook and Beyond
As of the latest North American third-party service light vehicle production forecasts, first half production has been reduced again to approximately seven million units and the second half of 2021 is now showing a reduction to approximately eight million units, primarily due to the impact of the semiconductor shortages. For 2022, the belief is that the production volumes will increase with initial forecasts of 16.8 million units as this lost production is recovered and the strong consumer demand remains. If this light vehicle production forecast level for 2021 holds, management expects to generate operating profits and improved operating cash flows, reflecting cost-reduction and efficiency related actions taken to date. Management notes that projected results are subject to substantial uncertainty regarding the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy and our industry, as well as other factors referenced in "Forward Looking Statements." There can be no assurance that our or industry results will not vary significantly from current expectations.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We present Net Debt, a non-GAAP financial measure, in this press release to provide a supplemental measure of our financial position. We believe that Net Debt is a useful measure of the Company's credit position and progress toward reducing leverage. The calculation is limited in that the Company may not always be able to use cash to repay debt on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

We present Consolidated EBITDA (defined as "Consolidated EBITDA" in our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, as amended), a non-GAAP financial measure, in this press release to allow evaluation of our covenant compliance in accordance with our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in our Credit Agreement, is earnings before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization expenses, management fees, non-cash stock compensation expenses, restructuring expenses, goodwill impairment charges, and consulting and licensing costs from our ongoing enterprise resource planning ("ERP") system implementation. There may be additional adjustments allowed by the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement and there are dollar limitations on certain adjustments and add backs. Please refer to our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, as amended, for a complete understanding of all adjustments and add backs allowed to Consolidated EBITDA as well as our financial covenants. The Company is presenting Consolidated EBITDA to measure our covenant compliance, not as a supplemental performance measurement. Certain of the allowable adjustments and add backs to Consolidated EBITDA are recurring in nature and cash expenses, which we believe limits the usefulness of Consolidated EBITDA as a measurement of the Company's performance. As of December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2021, we were not in compliance with our financial covenants and, as a result, in default under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. We have entered into a Forbearance Agreement with our lenders under which, during a period commencing on April 9, 2021 and through and including June 15, 2021, the Company will be able to borrow on its Revolver, subject to the terms and conditions to making a revolving credit advance, including availability, and the Lenders have agreed, subject to the terms of the Forbearance Agreement, to forbear from enforcing their rights or seeking to collect payment of the Company's debt or disposing of the collateral securing the debt. The Company intends to use the forbearance period to continue negotiations with the Lenders to enter into an amendment and waiver to cure the defaults. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to enter into an amendment or waiver with the Lenders or if it enters into an amendment, what the terms, restrictions, and covenants of the amendment will contain. Without an amendment and waiver that cures the default, substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern remains.

These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and these measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for analysis of Unique Fabricating's results as reported under GAAP.
