•  Six Month Net Revenues of $19.4 Million, up 13% from the Prior Year Period

•  Six Month GAAP Net Income of $2.0 million, Diluted EPS of $0.11 

•  Six Month Non-GAAP Diluted EPS of $0.13, Adjusted EBITDA $3.7 million

NEW YORK, Aug. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xcel Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: XELB) (“Xcel” or the “Company”), a media and consumer products company, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Robert W. D'Loren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xcel commented, “We are pleased with our second-quarter top-line revenue growth, the improvements we are making in our products and the benefits we are experiencing from our integrated technology platform. Our first half results are as expected, and we believe we will continue to experience revenue growth and improved operating results for the second half of 2019 despite recent challenges raised by the current tariff situation. In addition, our strong balance sheet provides Xcel with significant flexibility to navigate complex industry dynamics, while pursuing opportunities to expand our scale.” 

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net revenue increased to $9.1 million, a net increase of approximately $0.6 million, or 8% over the prior year quarter, primarily driven by sales from the apparel and jewelry wholesale and e-commerce operations. Gross profit decreased $0.9 million to $7.4 million from $8.3 million in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to lower net licensing revenue.

GAAP net income was approximately $1.9 million, or $0.10, per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $(0.1) million, or $(0.01) per share, for the prior year quarter. After adjusting for certain cash and non-cash items, non-GAAP net income for the current quarter and prior year quarter was approximately $1.0 million or $0.05 per diluted share, and approximately $1.7 million or $0.09 per diluted share, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $1.6 million, compared with approximately $2.2 million in the prior year quarter.     

See reconciliation tables below for non-GAAP metrics. These non-GAAP metrics may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies and should only be used in conjunction with our results reported according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Any financial measure other than those prepared in accordance with GAAP should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2019 remained strong, with stockholders' equity of approximately $103 million, cash and cash equivalents of approximately $6.3 million, and working capital, exclusive of current portion of operating lease liability, of approximately $9 million. In addition, during the current quarter, the Company recognized a $2.9 million gain on the reduction of contingent obligations related to the C Wonder asset acquisition and reduced contingent obligations on the balance sheet accordingly.

First Six Months of Fiscal 2019 Financial Results

Net revenue increased to $19.4 million, a net increase of approximately $2.1 million, or 13% over the prior year six month period, primarily driven by sales from the apparel and jewelry wholesale and e-commerce operations.  Gross profit decreased $1.0 million to $15.8 million from $16.8 million in the prior year six months, primarily attributable to lower net licensing revenue.

GAAP net income was approximately $2.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, or $0.11 per diluted share, an increase of $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share from the prior year six months, representing an increase of more than 400% in GAAP net income and EPS from the prior year period.  After adjusting for certain cash and non-cash items, non-GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was approximately $2.5 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared with $3.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share in the prior year six months.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was approximately $3.7 million, a decrease of $0.7 million from the prior year period. 

See reconciliation tables below for non-GAAP metrics. These non-GAAP metrics may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies and should only be used in conjunction with our results reported according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Any financial measure other than those prepared in accordance with GAAP should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS are non-GAAP unaudited terms. We define non-GAAP net income, exclusive of amortization of trademarks, stock-based compensation, non-cash interest and finance expense from discounted debt related to acquired assets, loss on extinguishment of debt, gain on the reduction of contingent obligations and deferred tax provision. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS measures do not include the tax effect of the aforementioned adjusting items, due to the nature of these items and the Company’s tax strategy.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP unaudited measure, which we define as net income before stock-based compensation, interest and finance expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, gain on the reduction of contingent obligations, income taxes, other state and local franchise taxes, and depreciation and amortization.

Management uses non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA as measures of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis and to identify business trends relating to our results of operations. Management believes non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA are also useful because they provide supplemental information to assist investors in evaluating our financial results. Non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, earnings per share, or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Given that non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA are financial measures not deemed to be in accordance with GAAP and are susceptible to varying calculations, our non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, including companies in our industry, because other companies may calculate non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA in a different manner than we calculate these measures. In evaluating non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may or may not incur expenses similar to some of the adjustments in this document. Our presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA does not imply that our future results will be unaffected by these expenses or any unusual or non-recurring items. When evaluating our performance, you should consider non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including our net income and other GAAP results, and not rely on any single financial measure.
