Financial Results Summary
Operational Results Summary
Christopher D. Bering, Chairman & CEO, said, 'we are delighted with the organization's overall performance, both top and bottom line. These results come from years of strategic initiatives that have allowed us to take advantage of the shift in consumer spending patterns. The diversification of our customers, and the increase in our eCommerce presence, combined with our global manufacturing base with locations in China, Egypt, Italy, Vietnam, Taiwan, India and the USA, has allowed us to successfully overcome the supply issues from COVID-19. I am also very excited to announce the opening of our new West Coast distribution facility. This location complements our already diversified distribution capabilities in the Midwest and East Coast. This new facility allows us to get our products to market expeditiously which is critical to our continued success. I am enthusiastic about the Company's operational positioning, which has taken several restructurings over many years to complete. These moves have allowed the organization to stay agile and fluid, imperative in these ever-changing markets. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged all of us to think, live, and work in new ways. The Company is working with all employees to offer flexibility by supporting individual work styles while balancing operational needs, and more importantly, safety for them and their families.'
Mr. Bering concluded, 'the business momentum is strong, and the trends we are experiencing gives me the confidence in the vision and path forward. We remain focused on value-driving strategies, which should continue to create favorable results in the years to come.'
Andrew Bass, Chairman of the Capital Allocation Committee, added that 'the Company secured a meaningful increase in its Line of Credit in the third quarter. This increase will ensure that our balance sheet can keep up with the higher business activity that we started to see in 2020. Accordingly, this has led to sizable improvements in income generation, allowing the Company to continue to use its over $14 million Federal and $5 million State Net Operating Loss. The Company does not expect to pay any meaningful amounts of cash taxes for the foreseeable future, which significantly benefits our ability to generate free cash flow and maintain high returns on invested capital. In addition to running a growing and profitable business, we continue to explore ways to increase our per-share intrinsic value over market cycles.'
