Universal Electronics Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter 2023

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) (NASDAQ: UEIC) reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

“For the first quarter of 2023, we performed well versus our expectations; however, we still have a lot of work to do,” said Paul Arling, UEI’s chairman and CEO. “Business conditions are difficult now, as our subscription broadcasting customers have suffered continued subscriber declines and our consumer electronics customers have experienced temporal declines due to economic weakness. We are continuing to gain share by winning projects in all our markets, and in particular in the higher growth connected home market. We are confident that our recent wins in this market will lead to long-term revenue growth.”

UEI’s CFO Bryan Hackworth added, “We are restructuring our manufacturing footprint to optimize capacity, lower our concentration risk in China, and establish a sustainable production facility in Vietnam, which is expected to commence operations in the second quarter 2023. By 2024, we expect our realignment to save $15 million annually. UEI remains the leader in wireless device control, and we are executing our plan to address the new market dynamics and to re-build UEI into a stronger company, better positioned for growth and profitability.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31: 2023 Compared to 2022

  • GAAP net sales were $108.4 million, compared to $132.4 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales were $108.4 million, compared to $132.4 million.
  • GAAP gross margins were 22.8%, compared to 27.4%; Adjusted Non-GAAP gross margins were 25.4%, compared to 28.9%.
  • GAAP operating loss was $59.5 million, including a $49.1 million non-cash charge for goodwill impairment, which resulted from a decline in the company’s market capitalization, compared to $0.6 million; Adjusted Non-GAAP operating loss was $3.6 million, compared to Adjusted Non-GAAP operating income of $7.8 million.
  • GAAP net loss was $61.4 million, including the aforementioned non-cash charge, or $4.81 per share, compared to $2.9 million or $0.23 per share; Adjusted Non-GAAP net loss was $3.5 million, or $0.28 per share, compared to Adjusted Non-GAAP net income $6.1 million, or $0.47 per diluted share.
  • At March 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents were $56.9 million.

Credit Agreement

In May, Universal Electronics extended the maturity of its credit facility for $125 million from November 1, 2023 to April 30, 2024.

Financial Outlook

For the second quarter of 2023, the company expects GAAP net sales to range between $105 million and $115 million, compared to $139.1 million in the second quarter of 2022. GAAP loss per share for the second quarter of 2023 is expected to range from $0.94 to $0.84, compared to GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.23 in the second quarter of 2022.

For the second quarter of 2023, the company expects Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales to range from $105 million and $115 million, compared to $139.1 million in the second quarter of 2022. Adjusted Non-GAAP loss per share is expected to range from $0.25 to $0.15, compared to Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.66 in the second quarter of 2022. The second quarter 2023 Adjusted Non-GAAP loss per share estimate excludes $0.69 per share related to, among other things, excess manufacturing overhead costs, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, litigation costs, foreign currency gains and losses and the related tax impact of these adjustments. For a more detailed explanation of Non-GAAP measures, please see the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Metrics discussion and the Reconciliation of Adjusted Non-GAAP Financial Results, each located elsewhere in this press release.

Conference Call Information

UEI’s management team will hold a conference call today, Thursday, May 4, 2023 at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT, to discuss its first quarter 2023 earnings results, review recent activity and answer questions. To attend the call please register here to receive a computer-generated dial-in number and a unique pin number. The conference call will also be broadcast live on the investor section of the UEI website where it will be available for replay for 90 days.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Metrics

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, UEI provides Adjusted Non-GAAP information as additional information for its operating results. References to Adjusted Non-GAAP information are to non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are not required by, in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. UEI’s management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of UEI for budget planning purposes and for making operational and financial decisions. Management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, help investors evaluate UEI’s core operating and financial performance and business trends consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. Additionally, management believes these measures facilitate comparisons with the core operating and financial results and business trends of competitors and other companies.

Adjusted Non-GAAP net sales is defined as net sales. Adjusted Non-GAAP gross profit is defined as gross profit excluding the impact of excess manufacturing overhead costs, factory transition costs, stock-based compensation expense, and depreciation expense related to the increase in fixed assets from cost to fair market value resulting from acquisitions. Adjusted Non-GAAP operating expenses are defined as operating expenses excluding stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles acquired, costs associated with certain litigation efforts and goodwill impairment. Adjusted Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income excluding the aforementioned items, foreign currency gains and losses and the related tax effects of all adjustments. Adjusted Non-GAAP earnings (loss) per diluted share is calculated using Adjusted Non-GAAP net income. A reconciliation of these financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release.

The three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 include excess manufacturing overhead costs due primarily to the expansion of our manufacturing facility in Mexico where products destined for the U.S. market are now manufactured. These products destined for the U.S. market were previously manufactured in China. In addition, the three months ended March 31, 2023 include normal start-up costs such as idle labor and training associated with our new factory in Vietnam. We plan to commence operations in Vietnam in the second quarter of 2023.

 (2)

Consists of depreciation related to the mark-up from cost to fair value of fixed assets acquired in business combinations.

 (3)

Consists of expenses related to our various litigation matters involving Roku, Inc. and certain other related entities including three Federal District Court cases, two International Trade Commission investigations and the defense of various inter partes reviews and appeals before the US Patent and Trademark Board as well as other non-recurring legal matters.

 (4)

During the three months ended March 31, 2023, we recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $49.1 million as a result of our market capitalization being significantly less than the carrying value of our equity.
