  • Second quarter product sales increased 5.9% to 14.2 million; Custom folding carton sales up 6.0% to $11.8 million
  • Achieved gross margin of 17.0% in the second quarter on improved leverage

BUFFALO, N.Y., July 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOD-PAC CORP. (Nasdaq:MPAC) (the "Company"), a high value-added, on-demand print services firm that designs and manufactures custom and stock folding cartons, today announced financial results for its second quarter of 2013 ended June 29, 2013.

Revenue increased $0.8 million, or 6.0%, to $14.3 million in the second quarter from $13.5 million in the prior-year period on solid folding carton sales. Net income for the second quarter of 2013 improved to $19 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, from a net loss of $120 thousand, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012, reflecting leverage on higher sales.

Product Line Sales Review

  • Sales of custom folding cartons increased $0.7 million, or 6.0%, to $11.8 million from $11.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to additional business from several existing customers.
  • Second quarter stock packaging sales were $1.7 million, an increase from $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Personalized print sales were consistent with the prior-year period at $0.7 million.

Improved Leverage Drives Margin Expansion

Gross profit for the 2013 second quarter was $2.4 million, or 17.0% of total revenue, compared with gross profit of $1.8 million, or 13.2% of total revenue, in the prior-year period. The margin expansion resulted from improved leverage on higher sales and continued cost control partially offset by higher repair and maintenance expenses.

Second quarter selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense increased to $2.3 million from $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2012, primarily due to expenses associated with the formal proposal the Company received on October 29, 2012 to be acquired. As a percentage of total revenue, SG&A was 16.4% and 14.1% in the second quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Earnings before interest, extraordinary income and loss, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and option expense (EBITDA), which is a non-GAAP measure, was $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 10.3%, or $79 thousand, from the second quarter of 2012. (See the Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA in the attached table.)

First Half 2013 Review

Total revenue for the first half of 2013 was $28.7 million, up 5.2%, or $1.4 million, from $27.3 million for the first six months of 2012. Sales of custom folding cartons were $23.0 million compared with $21.5 million in the prior-year period, an increase of $1.5 million or nearly seven percent. The increase was primarily due to market share gains by capturing new product lines from several existing customers. Stock packaging sales were up slightly at $4.3 million for the first six months of 2013, while personalized print sales declined 3.8% to $1.3 million.

Gross profit for the first six months of 2013 was $5.1 million, up 42.4% from $3.6 million in the prior-year period. First half 2013 gross profit margin expanded to 17.7% from 13.0% in the corresponding 2012 period on improved leverage and continued cost control, partially offset by higher repair and maintenance expenses.

SG&A expense was $4.3 million for the first half of 2013 compared with $3.8 million in the prior-year period, and reflects the incremental expense associated with the proposed transaction received in October 2012.

The Company incurred an asset impairment charge of $0.1 million during the first six months of 2013 related to the potential sale of a non-core building that is currently used as office rental space.

EBITDA for the first six months of 2013 improved to $2.3 million from $1.5 million in the prior-year period. (See the Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA in the attached table.) Net income increased to $0.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, during the first six months of 2013 from a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the same period of 2012.

Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents were $4.0 million at June 29, 2013, up from the 2012 year-end balance of $3.6 million. The exercise of stock options generated $0.2 million for the Company during the first half of 2013. Capital expenditures for the first six months of 2013 were $0.9 million compared with $3.4 million for the same period in 2012, and primarily included additional custom folding carton equipment. Capital expenditures in 2013 are expected to be between $1.8 million to $2.1 million.

There were no shares repurchased by the Company during the first six months of 2013. MOD-PAC has authorization to repurchase up to 200,000 shares. 

The Company has a $3.0 million secured line of credit of which $0.2 million was in use through a standby letter of credit and there was no balance drawn on the line at the end of the quarter.

EBITDA is defined as consolidated net income (loss) before interest expense, extraordinary income and loss, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and option expense.  EBITDA is not a measure determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, commonly known as GAAP. Nevertheless, MOD-PAC believes that providing non-GAAP information such as EBITDA is important for investors and other readers of MOD-PAC's financial statements, as it is used as an analytical indicator by MOD-PAC's management.  Because EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, EBITDA, as presented, may not be directly comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
