XPEL Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

- Company Announces 70% Organic Revenue Growth With 65% Growth in Pre-Tax Net Income -

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--XPEL Technologies Corp. (TSXV:DAP.U), a leading supplier of automotive paint and headlamp protection films, announced results for the quarter and first six months of fiscal year 2014 ended June 30, 2014.

“Our focus is on sustained, long-term earnings growth, and we are investing in our business accordingly. Our balance sheet provides us with the financial flexibility to make measured investments in strengthening our employee base, expanding and refining our sales and marketing strategy and enhancing our operating systems.”

Mr. Ryan Pape, President and Chief Executive Officer of XPEL, commented “We continue to see strong organic growth in revenues and improved earnings driven by brand awareness of the XPEL solution, a broader installer base both domestically and internationally, and customer satisfaction.”

For the Quarter Ended June 30, 2014:

Revenue: Revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $8.3 million, a 70% increase as compared to revenue of $4.9 million in the same prior year quarter.

Gross Margin: Gross profit as a percentage of revenue remained relatively unchanged at 30%.

Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue remained relatively unchanged at 18% of revenue.

Net Earnings: Net income for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $595,229, or $0.023 per basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, compared with net income of $384,273, or $0.015 per basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, for the corresponding prior year period.

For the Six Months Ended June 30, 2014:

Revenue: Revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 was $13.6 million, a 69% increase as compared to revenue of $8.1 million in the same prior year period.

Gross Margin: Gross profit as a percentage of revenue remained relatively unchanged at 31%.

Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue remained relatively unchanged at 19% of revenue.

Net Earnings: Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2014 was $1,054,514, or $0.041 per basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, compared with net income of $646,597, or $0.025 basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, for the corresponding prior year period.

Mr. Pape continued, “Our focus is on sustained, long-term earnings growth, and we are investing in our business accordingly. Our balance sheet provides us with the financial flexibility to make measured investments in strengthening our employee base, expanding and refining our sales and marketing strategy and enhancing our operating systems.”

Mr. Pape continued, “Sales were robust both domestically and internationally. Domestically, we rolled-out over the past year company-owned XPEL installation facilities in select markets and these facilities have been performing well. International sales account for 36% of our overall revenues, slightly higher than 31% a year ago. International sales is a significant opportunity for XPEL over the long term, particularly in regions where the environmental conditions are particularly harmful to automobiles. We have recently implemented a new ERP system which more effectively centralizes the management of our international operations and should further improve inventory management as we grow our business overseas.”

Mr. Pape concluded, “Our base of independent installers and dealerships continues to expand, rooted by XPEL’s keen focus on providing training and support for our partners. These quarterly results are a further reflection of XPEL’s growing brand in the marketplace. With single digit penetration of the overall market, there is significant opportunity for long-term growth.”
