Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2023 Results

For the fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2023, the Company reported revenue of $54.2 million, a 6.4% increase over the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations, fourth quarter revenue was up 7.8%.

On a constant currency basis, revenue in the Asia/Pacific & Europe region decreased approximately 3.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2023.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $43.2 million, or 79.6% of revenue, compared to $41.6 million, or 81.7% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2022. The decline in gross profit margin as a percentage of revenue was primarily driven by elevated shipping expenses as well as shifts in geographic and product sales mix.

Commissions and incentives expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $23.5 million, or 43.3% of revenue, compared to $24.5 million, or 48.1% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2022. The decrease in commissions and incentives expense as a percentage of revenue was due primarily to the timing and magnitude of promotional and incentive programs.

Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $17.0 million, or 31.4% of revenue, compared to $15.6 million, or 30.6% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2022. Adjusted for nonrecurring expenses, which are detailed in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation tables included at the end of this press release, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 were $16.7 million, or 30.8% of revenue, compared to adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 of $16.6 million, or 32.6% of revenue.

Operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $2.6 million, compared to $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, adjusted non-GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $3.0 million compared to $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022.

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $2.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, net of tax, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was $2.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to adjusted non-GAAP net income of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA was $4.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 versus $1.7 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2022.

Fiscal 2023 Full Year Results

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, the Company reported net revenue of $213.4 million, an increase of 3.4% compared to $206.4 million for fiscal 2022. In fiscal 2023, revenue in the Americas increased 12.3% which was partially offset by revenue in Asia/Pacific & Europe which decreased 14.7%. Revenue for fiscal 2023 was negatively impacted by $7.4 million, or 3.6%, by foreign currency fluctuations.

Gross profit during fiscal 2023 was $170.0 million, or 79.7% of revenue, compared to $168.3 million, or 81.5% of revenue, for fiscal 2022. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of revenue is primarily due to increased raw material and manufacturing related costs, as well as elevated shipping and warehouse fulfillment expenses during the fiscal year.

Commissions and incentives expense for fiscal 2023 was $94.7 million, or 44.4% of revenue, compared to $97.3 million, or 47.1% of revenue, for fiscal 2022. The decrease in commissions and incentives expense as a percentage revenue was due primarily to lower promotion and incentive expenses.

SG&A expense for fiscal 2023 was $71.1 million, or 33.3% of revenue, compared to $63.4 million, or 30.7% of revenue, for fiscal 2022. Adjusted for nonrecurring expenses and recoveries, which are detailed in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation tables included at the end of this press release, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expense for fiscal 2023 was $70.3 million, or 32.9% of revenue, compared to adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expense for fiscal 2022 of $63.3 million, or 30.7% of revenue. The increase in non-GAAP SG&A expense as a percentage of revenue was primarily due to increased employee salaries and compensation, events and travel expenses and higher stock compensation.

Operating income for fiscal 2023 was $4.3 million, or 2.0% of revenue, compared to $7.6 million, or 3.7% of revenue, for fiscal 2022. Accounting for non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, adjusted non-GAAP operating income for fiscal 2023 was $5.1 million, or 2.4% of revenue, compared to $7.7 million, or 3.7% of revenue, for fiscal 2022.

Net income for fiscal 2023 was $2.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $3.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share for fiscal 2022. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, net of tax, adjusted non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2023 was $3.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share compared to $5.3 million, or $0.41 per diluted share in fiscal 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA was $11.7 million for fiscal 2023 compared to $12.8 million for fiscal 2022.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

The Company generated $6.8 million of cash from operations during fiscal 2023 compared to $8.0 million during fiscal 2022. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2023 were $21.6 million, compared to $20.2 million at June 30, 2022 and there was no debt outstanding.

Dividend Announcement

Today the Company announced the declaration of a special one-time cash dividend of $0.40 per share of common stock as well as the Company’s regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.035 per share of common stock. Both dividends will be paid on September 22, 2023 to all stockholders of record at the close of business on September 8, 2023.

Fiscal Year 2024 Guidance

The Company expects to generate revenue in the range of $216 million to $226 million in fiscal year 2023 and adjusted EBITDA of $16 million to $18 million, with adjusted earnings per share in the range of $0.52 to $0.62, which assumes a full year tax rate of approximately 28%. This guidance reflects the current trends in the business. The Company’s guidance for adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA and adjusted non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes any non-operating or non-recurring expenses that may materialize during fiscal 2023. The Company is not providing guidance for GAAP earnings per diluted share for fiscal 2023 due to the potential occurrence of one or more non-operating, one-time expenses, which the Company does not believe it can reliably predict.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, other income, net, and certain other adjustments. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We define Non-GAAP Net Income as GAAP net income less certain tax adjusted non-recurring one-time expenses incurred during the period and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share as Non-GAAP Net Income divided by weighted-average shares outstanding.

We are presenting Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share because management believes that they provide additional ways to view our operations when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliation to net income, which we believe provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share are presented solely as supplemental disclosure because: (i) we believe these measures are a useful tool for investors to assess the operating performance of the business without the effect of these items; (ii) we believe that investors will find this data useful in assessing shareholder value; and (iii) we use Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share internally as benchmarks to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share has limitations and you should not consider these measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the relevant GAAP measure of net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

The tables set forth below present reconciliations of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share, which are non-GAAP financial measures to Net Income and Earnings per Share, our most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
