Ironclad Performance Wear Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Third Quarter Revenue up 22% Sequentially to $5.55 Million, Maintaining Momentum for a Strong Second Half 2012

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironclad Performance Wear Corporation (ICPW.OB), the recognized leader in high-performance task-specific gloves, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Net sales for the third quarter totaled $5.55 million, increasing 22.0% from $4.55 million in the previous quarter and lower by 2.8% compared to $5.71 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The marginal decline from the year-ago quarter was primarily due to the company's decision not to participate in a "Big Box" retailer promotion this year that involved unacceptably low margins. Net sales was also affected by the timing of certain sales orders which were originally expected to ship in the third quarter, but were pushed into the current fourth quarter of this year.

Gross profit increased 3% to $2.22 million, or 40.0% of net sales, compared to $2.16 million, or 37.8% of net sales in the third quarter of 2011.

Operating expenses as a percent of net sales increased to 34.4%, or $1.91 million, compared to 27.4% of net sales, or $1.56 million, during the same period last year.  This increase was primarily caused by higher personnel costs; legal fees – primarily to defend against minority shareholder actions; outside third-party services for warehousing, logistics and quality control; and research & development certification testing expenses.

Income from operations was $314,133, compared to $592,313 during the same period in 2011. Net income was $256,044 in the third quarter 2012, compared to $543,918 during the same period last year.

"Third quarter performance was significantly impacted by our decision not to participate in a 'Big Box' retailer promotion and the timing of certain orders," said Scott Jarus, Chairman and CEO of Ironclad. "It's also important to note that Ironclad's focus on margin during the quarter is demonstrated by the nearly 3% increase in gross profit.  For the first nine months of 2012, our net sales were up 12.6% and gross profit was up by 12.4% versus the same year-ago period."

Guidance for 2012

"We have good visibility going into the fourth quarter, our historically strongest quarter.  The pipeline of orders expected or already received for delivery in the fourth quarter and our current production capacity, coupled with our year-to-date performance, gives us confidence that we will see solid year-over-year and sequential quarterly revenue growth that enables us to meet our established guidance range for the full year," said Mr. Jarus.

Management reiterates its previous financial guidance for the full-year of 2012.  Therefore, the company expects 2012 net sales to increase 15%-20% to $24.6 million to $25.7 million.  EBITDA +ASC718 (a non-GAAP term the company defines as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and ASC 718 non-cash stock option expense), is expected to be between $2.0 million to $2.4 million, representing an increase of 19%-42% from 2011. Earnings per share are expected to increase marginally.

This expectation is based solely upon the outlook for organic growth, and does not contemplate acquisition opportunities which, if identified and concluded, would be expected to be accretive to net sales and net income.

Mr. Jarus concluded: "Our financial results to-date demonstrate the company's ability to leverage the Ironclad brand and apply our expertise to produce innovative products for growth and profitability. Such innovation includes our new Mechanic glove designed specifically for auto mechanics and technicians, and our new TouchScreen performance work glove designed to keep hard working men and women protected and connected. Also during the third quarter, we introduced the newest member to the KONG glove family, the Cut Resistant KONG designed for the particular hazardous conditions found on an oil and gas platform.  Given the increasing strength of our business and product line, we are very optimistic about our performance in the fourth quarter and how it will set the stage for a successful 2013."
