The third quarter of fiscal year 2018 ended with a net income of $1.3 million or 9 cents per share, compared with a net income of $1.8 million or 13 cents per share in the same quarter of last year. Net income of both quarters included certain unrealized, non-cash expenses and one-time items that have significant impact on the net income per GAAP. With the exclusion of these items, the third quarter of fiscal 2018 had an adjusted net income of $0.1 million, compared with adjusted net income of $2.5 million in the same quarter of last year. The adjusted net income of $0.1 million in the quarter is inclusive of a $1.5 million incremental investment in sales, marketing and product development.

On a year-to-date basis, the nine month period had a net income of $1.8 million, compared to a net income of $1.9 million a year ago. The current year-to-date period included certain unrealized and non-cash expense and severance obligations, which were considered as unusual operating expenses. With the exclusion of these unusual items, the year-to-date third quarter had an adjusted net loss of $1.4 million compared to adjusted net income of $4.9 million in the prior period. The adjusted year-to-date net loss of $1.4 million is inclusive of $4 million incremental investment in sales, marketing and product development.

Adjusted net income or loss is a non-GAAP measure, which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

The following is a reconciliation of net income and loss calculated in accordance with GAAP to the non-GAAP measure:

Sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 were $2.7 million or 11.9% higher than the same quarter of the previous year. Excluding the impact foreign exchange, third quarter sales were 21% higher than the prior year quarter due to gains realized in both the furniture and walls segments.

Year-to-date sales declined by $1.9 million or -2.5% compared to the prior year.  YTD sales are 1% higher than the prior year if we normalize foreign exchange. The previous year benefitted from two large non-recurring projects totaling $5 million which implies the run rate sales have improved.

Gross profit as a percentage of sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 was 27.1%, a decline from 30.3% from the same quarter of the previous year. Unfavorable foreign exchange and lower product mix negatively impacted gross profit.

Year-to-date gross profit percentage was 28.0% compared to last year’s 30.9% due to the same factors as described in the quarter.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 were 28.0% of sales, compared to 29.4% in the same quarter of last year. The increase in SGA by $0.5 million compared to the prior year was mainly due to severance costs and investment in marketing, sales coverage and supply chain initiatives.

Year-to-date SG&A was 30.7% of sales, compared to 27.4% for the same period of last year. The dollar amount increased by $1.9 million due to severance costs and investments in marketing, sales coverage and supply chain initiatives.

At the previous fiscal year ended April 30, 2017, the Company recorded a valuation allowance of $6.4 million to derecognize the future income tax benefit of loss carryforwards as deferred tax assets. The off-balance sheet valuation allowance was utilized to reduce the Company’s income tax expense of the current period.

At the end of the quarter, the company was debt-free and had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $9.3 million and an unused credit facility.
