MOUNT GILEAD, N.C., June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- McRae Industries, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MCRAA and MCRAB) reported consolidated net revenues from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 of $23,455,000 as compared to $22,585,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  Net earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to $1,223,000 or $0.61 per diluted Class A common share as compared to $1,333,000, or $0.62 per diluted Class A common share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. 

Consolidated net revenues from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 totaled $81,711,000 as compared to $73,531,000 for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. Net earnings for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 amounted to $5,768,000 or $2.67 per diluted Class A common share, as compared to $5,143,000, or $2.75 per diluted Class A common share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2014 COMPARED TO THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2013

Consolidated net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to $23.5 million as compared to $22.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Net revenues related to our western/lifestyle boot products totaled $13.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to $13.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. This slight reduction in net revenues was primarily attributable to delayed receipt of inventory and extreme weather issues early in the quarter. However, overall demand for these products remained steady. Net revenues from our work boot products grew from $9.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 to $10.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014. This increase in net revenues from our work boot business resulted primarily from continued strong military boot requirements for the U. S. Government and slightly higher demand for work boots as the economy continues to improve. 

Consolidated gross profit totaled approximately $6.3 million for both third quarters of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013 as higher product import costs and sales mix shifts had a dampening impact on gross profit margins, which fell from 27.9% for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 to 27.1% for the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Our work boot business gross profit margins increased slightly as higher military boot production levels had a positive impact by lowering per unit manufacturing costs.

Consolidated operating costs and expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled $4.3 million as compared to $4.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in operating costs and expenses was primarily attributable to higher expenditures or charges for sales related compensation, sales and marketing expenditures, administrative compensation and professional fees, which were partially offset by lower travel and employee benefit charges. 

As a result of the above, the consolidated operating earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $2.0 million as compared to approximately $2.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

FIRST NINE MONTHS FISCAL 2014 COMPARED TO FIRST NINE MONTHS FISCAL 2013

Consolidated net revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 amounted to $81.7 million as compared to $73.5 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. This 11% increase in net revenues resulted from strong performances in both of our product segments. Net revenues from our western/lifestyle products segment grew from $49.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 to $53.2 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 as market demand remained strong. The work boot segment net revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 totaled $28.2 million, up from $23.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 as military boot revenues for both our commercial and government business grew nearly 38%.

Consolidated gross profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 totaled $24.1 million as compared to $22.0 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. This 9.5% increase in consolidated gross profit resulted primarily from the combined revenue growth in our western/lifestyle boot and work boot segments. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues for both boot segments for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 totaled 29.4% as compared to 29.8% for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. This slight decline in overall gross margin percentage was primarily the result of product mix sales changes as the lower margin military boot sales contributions increased nearly 5% over last year.

Consolidated operating costs and expenses amounted to $14.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 as compared to $13.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. This increase in consolidated operating costs and expenses was primarily attributable to increased expenditures or charges for sales compensation related costs, marketing and advertising costs, professional fees, and employee benefit charges, which were partially offset by reduced outlays for group health insurance charges and travel costs.

As a result of the above, the consolidated operating profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 totaled approximately $9.4 million as compared to approximately $8.3 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. 

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

The Company's financial condition continues to be strong. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $16.6 million at May 3, 2014 as compared to $10.8 million at August 3, 2013. Our working capital totaled $48.1 million at May 3, 2014 as compared to $43.1 million at August 3, 2013.

We currently maintain two lines of credit with a bank totaling $6.75 million, all of which was available at May 3, 2014. Our credit line totaling $1.75 million (which is restricted to one hundred percent of the outstanding receivables due from the U. S. Government) and our $5.0 million line of credit (which is secured by our western/work boot business accounts receivable and inventory) expire in January 2015.

We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents, cash generated from operations, and available lines of credit will be sufficient to meet our capital requirements for the remainder of fiscal 2014.

Operating activities for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 provided approximately $7.0 million of cash. Net earnings as adjusted for depreciation, provided $6.3 million of cash. Our trade accounts receivable provided approximately $1.6 million of cash as collection outpaced sales. The reduction of inventory levels provided approximately $1.0 million of cash as third quarter sales remained strong. The timing of inventory and accrued payroll related payments used approximately $1.1 million of cash.  Income tax payments used approximately $800,000 of cash.

Investing activities used approximately $363,000 of cash. Capital expenditures, primarily for manufacturing equipment, office equipment and air handling equipment, used approximately $447,000 of cash. Proceeds from investment land sales provided approximately $87,000 of cash.

Financing activities used approximately $849,000 of cash for dividend payments.
