N/A

 

Fourth quarter 2022 revenues of $73.8 million increased 4.6% due to increased revenues in the Steel Manufacturing Segment primarily as a result of the acquisition of The Kinetic Co., Inc. (“Kinetic”). The increase in revenues was partially offset by a decrease of approximately $2.7 million in the Corporate and Other Segment resulting from lower revenues at Salomon Whitney LLC (“SW Financial”).

 

Operating income decreased to $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2022 as compared to $9.1 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income is attributable to the impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets at SW Financial as well as inflationary cost increases.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2022, net loss was $0.6 million as compared with net income of $7.1 million in the prior year period. The decrease in net income is attributable to the impairment charge and lower profit margins as a result of inflationary cost increases. Diluted net loss per share for the fourth quarter was $0.20 per share as compared to diluted EPS of $2.23 in the prior year period.

 

Fourth quarter 2022 adjusted EBITDA of $7.2 million decreased approximately $4.3 million, or 37.5%, as compared to the prior year period. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA is primarily due to inflationary cost increases.

 

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had total cash availability of $31.0 million, consisting of cash on hand of $4.6 million and cash availability under its various lines of credit of $26.4 million.

² includes Kinetic in 2022 results

Retail

Retail Segment revenues decreased 3.0% to $86.2 million as compared to $88.8 million in the prior year. The decrease is primarily due to inflationary pressures, supply chain issues, and overall product sales mix. In addition, prior year sales were positively impacted by stimulus payments that customers received during fiscal year 2021. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by increased retail pricing and the opening of 7 new Vintage Stock stores in 2022. Further, ApplianceSmart shut down operations during the fiscal year 2022. The cost of revenues for the year ended September 30, 2022 was relatively flat as compared to the prior year. The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to inflationary factors and the opening of new stores in 2022. Operating income for the year ended September 30, 2022 was approximately $12.6 million, as compared to approximately $16.3 million during the prior year.

Flooring Manufacturing

Flooring Manufacturing Segment revenues increased 0.5% to $130.9 million as compared to $130.2 million in the prior year, primarily due to increased sales prices as well as the acquisition of Better Backers. These increases were partially offset by lower sales volume stemming from decreased consumer demand. Cost of revenues increased primarily due to increases in raw material costs as compared to the prior year. General and administrative expenses decreased primarily due to one-time expenses incurred during the year ended September 30, 2021, and a reduction of variable employee compensation costs recognized during the year ended September 30, 2022. Sales and marketing expenses increased by approximately $1.2 million primarily due to increased convention and trade show activity, as well as increased compensation associated with the Marquis sales force. Operating income for the year ended September 30, 2022 was approximately $14.2 million, as compared to operating income of approximately $20.2 million for the prior year.

Steel Manufacturing

Steel Manufacturing Segment revenues increased by approximately $11.3 million, or 23.0 percent, as compared to the prior year, due to increased sales pricing, as well as the acquisition of Kinetic in June 2022. Cost of revenues as a percentage of revenues decreased due to increased revenues as a result of price increases, the acquisition of Kinetic, and improved manufacturing efficiencies. General and administrative expenses increased primarily due to increased variable employee compensation costs and the acquisition of

Kinetic. Operating income for the year ended September 30, 2022 was approximately $8.9 million as compared to approximately $5.9 million in the prior year.

Corporate and Other

Revenues for the year ended September 30, 2022 increased by approximately $4.7 million primarily due to the addition of SW Financial as a variable interest entity in June 2021. Operating loss for the year ended September 30, 2022 was approximately $9.7 million and included the goodwill and other intangible assets impairment charge at SW Financial. Prior year operating loss was approximately $6.6 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

 

Adjusted EBITDA

We evaluate the performance of our operations based on financial measures such as revenues and “Adjusted EBITDA.” Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-cash or nonrecurring charges. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of the business, including the business’s ability to fund acquisitions and other capital expenditures, and to service its debt. Additionally, this measure is used by management to evaluate operating results and perform analytical comparisons and identify strategies to improve performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also a measure that is customarily used by financial analysts to evaluate a company’s financial performance, subject to certain adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent cash flows from operations, as defined by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), should not be construed as an alternative to net income or loss, and is indicative neither of our results of operations, nor of cash flows available to fund our cash needs. It is, however, a measurement that the Company believes is useful to investors in analyzing its operating performance. Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, net income, cash flow provided by operating activities, and other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. As companies often define non-GAAP financial measures differently, Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated by Live Ventures Incorporated should not be compared to any similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
