October 27, 2015 | By Business Wire News


Stanley Furniture Company, Inc. (Nasdaq-NGS:STLY) today reports sales and operating results for the third quarter of 2015.

Third quarter 2015 financial results compared to prior year:

  • Net sales were $13.8 million compared to $13.9 million, down 1.2%.
  • Gross profit improved to 24.8% compared to 18.8%.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $2.8 million, or 20.5% of net sales, compared to $3.3 million, or 23.6% of net sales.
  • Operating income was $587,000, or 4.3% of net sales, compared to a loss of $670,000.
  • Net income from continuing operations was $391,000, or 2.8% of net sales, compared to a net loss of $1.4 million.
  • The company generated cash from operating activities of $589,000.

Year-to-date 2015 financial results compared to prior year:

  • Net sales were $43.6 million compared to $44.6 million, down 2.3%.
  • Operating income was $311,000 compared to a loss of $3.5 million.
  • Net income from continuing operations was $4.4 million, including the receipt of $4.9 million in CDSOA proceeds, compared to a loss of $5.4 million. CDSOA proceeds were used to pay down policy loans on life insurance policies used to fund the company’s legacy deferred compensation plan.
  • As of September 26, 2015, the company’s financial position reflected $6.2 million in cash and restricted cash and $20.7 million in net cash surrender value on life insurance policies.

“We are pleased to report consecutive quarters of operating profits and earnings for our shareholders,” said Glenn Prillaman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Normally, we would have shipped products from our adult line introduced earlier this year, but multiple initial production runs of our new Stone & Leigh brand at the same facility producing our adult line introductions caused some short-term disruption to shipments impacting third quarter sales.”

The company now enters its first full quarter producing this new line of nursery and youth furniture where backlog continues to grow. “We are now back on offense making decisions that we expect to produce growth and leverage the cost structure already producing profits,” continued Prillaman. “Our consumer catalog and website for our new brand will be introduced in the fourth quarter. This new brand promises to attract the elusive millennial consumer into our customers’ stores. We also had a positive reception from our customers to more competitively priced product introduced at this month’s High Point Market.”

In addition and earlier this month, the company announced its new licensing agreement with world-renowned fashion brand, Oscar de la Renta, scheduled for introduction in fall of 2016. Originally introduced in 2008, Stanley’s Coastal Living license continues to represent one of its best-selling product lines, and the company expects similar results from this new effort, given the popularity of the Oscar de la Renta brand around the world.

Stanley also announced today that the Board of Directors elected one of its current Directors, John “Ian” Lapey, as Chairman of the Board. Mr. Lapey replaces Mr. Michael P. Haley, who has served as Chairman since January 2011. Mr. Haley will remain a director on the Board. “I am honored to serve as Chair of Stanley’s Board and look forward to guiding the company to the growth and resulting shareholder value gains expected in today’s markets,” commented Lapey.
