August 31, 2015
By Business Wire News

SAN ANTONIO, Texas

XPEL Technologies Corp. (TSXV:DAP.U), a leading supplier of automotive paint and headlamp protection films, announced results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

Mr. Ryan Pape, President and Chief Executive Officer of XPEL, commented, “We have seen continued momentum in the second quarter with solid growth and the completion of the integration of Parasol Canada, which we acquired in the first quarter.”

For the Quarter Ended June 30, 2015:

Revenue: Revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $11.3 million, a 35% increase as compared to revenue of $8.3 million in the same prior year quarter and a 40% increase sequentially as compared to the first quarter.

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

Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue was 21%, up slightly as compared to 18% in the second quarter of 2014 and a sequential decline as compared to 25% in the first quarter of 2015.

Net Earnings: Net income for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $605,653 or $0.02 per basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, compared with net income of $595,229, or $0.02 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, 2015:

Revenue: Revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2015 was $19.4 million, a 42% increase as compared to revenue of $13.6 million in the same prior year period.

Gross Margin: Gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased slightly to 32% from 31% in the same prior year period.

Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue was 23%, up from 19% in the same prior year period.

Net Earnings: Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2015 was $1,277,861, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, compared with net income of $1,054,514, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share based on 25,784,950 shares outstanding, for the corresponding prior year period.

Mr. Pape continued, “In addition to good growth in the U.S., our direct presence in Canada and Europe generated strong revenue growth in both regions, despite pressure from the U.S. Dollar. Elsewhere, the impact of foreign currency on our distributors and the reorganization of our distribution in China reduced growth in the quarter. Across our international subsidiaries, net income would have increased over $300,000 if the relevant exchange rates were at their prior year rates.”

“The continued expansion of our U.S. sales and marketing programs combined with the distribution changes in Canada and China position us well to continue our differentiated, premium offering as the business grows and we introduce additional products and services.”
