SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. Reports 2022 Second Quarter and Year-to-date Results

Jul 29th, 2022 12:30 EST

COLUMBUS, OH / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2022 / SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. ("SCI") (OTCQB:SCIA), today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. SCI is a global supplier and manufacturer of advanced materials for physical vapor deposition thin film applications who works closely with end users and OEMs to develop innovative, customized solutions.

Jeremy Young, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Record total revenue and gross profit for this year's second quarter and first six months contributed to record income applicable to common stock. Our financial results for the first half of 2022 benefited from increased volume, improved product mix and actions to mitigate the impact of significantly higher raw material costs. We entered the third quarter with solid order backlog and are cautiously optimistic our markets will remain relatively stable during the second half of this year despite continued economic uncertainties. The Company remains focused on factors we can directly influence which are contributing to manufacturing efficiencies and additional growth opportunities."

Total Revenue

Total revenue increased to a record $6,505,005 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $1,972,049 for the same period in 2021. For the first six months of 2022, total revenue was a record $11,831,437 compared to $4,994,359 a year ago. Higher pricing, primarily attributable to increased raw material costs, and favorable product mix particularly contributed to the revenue increases for both periods compared to last year.

Order backlog was approximately $5.3 million on June 30, 2022, compared to $3.0 million on March 31, 2022, and $6.3 million a year ago. Customer orders accelerated during the second quarter of 2022 with continued emphasis on intra-quarter shipments.

ERC Tax Credit

During each of the first three quarters of 2021, the Company recorded an Employee Retention Credit (ERC). The Company recognized $151,701 of this federal tax credit in the 2021 second quarter, which reduced cost of revenue by $87,287 and operating expenses by $64,414. For the first half of 2021, cost of revenue benefited from the $238,275 ERC and reported operating expenses were $168,933 lower due to the ERC.

Gross profit

Gross profit increased to $1,377,668 for the 2022 second quarter from $562,554 the prior year. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, gross profit increased to $2,371,769 from $1,365,590 a year ago. Excluding the ERC, gross profit was $475,267 and $1,127,315, respectively, for the second quarter and first half of 2021. Significantly higher revenue was the key factor which contributed to higher gross profit for both periods in 2022, partially offset by higher raw material costs and supply chain issues throughout the first half of this year.

Operating expenses

Operating expenses (general and administrative, research and development (R&D), and marketing and sales) were $623,626 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, versus $384,519 a year ago. For the first half of 2022, operating expenses were $1,166,033 compared to $762,012 the prior year. Excluding the ERC, operating expenses for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 were $448,933 and $930,945, respectively. The increases for both periods in 2022 compared to 2021 were attributable to additional staff, higher travel expenses directly related to in-person customer visits and trade shows, plus higher compensation, and professional expenses.

EBITDA*

The Company's 2022 second quarter EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization) was $853,823 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, versus $290,642 a year ago. For the first six months of 2022, EBITDA increased to $1,403,088 from $1,150,253 the prior year. Record total revenue and gross profit for the second quarter and first half of 2022 were the principal factors in both periods that contributed to the increases compared to a year ago.

Income Applicable to Common Stock

Income applicable to common stock increased to $664,873, representing $0.15 per share, from $115,510, or $0.03 per share, for the same period last year. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, income applicable to common stock was $1,049,274 compared to $762,057 in 2021. Higher revenue and gross profit were key factors contributing to the increases for both periods in 2022 versus a year ago.

Net Cash and Total Debt Outstanding

Cash on hand was a record $5,409,210 on June 30, 2022, versus $4,140,942 on December 31, 2021, and $3,497,202 on the same date last year. The 31% increase since 2021 year-end was primarily due to strong cash from operations of $1,490,066 for the first six months of 2022.

Total debt outstanding was $195,392 on June 30, 2022, versus $243,218 on December 31, 2021, and $316,212 on June 30, 2021. During the second quarter and first six months of 2022 the Company made principal payments of $24,041 and $47,824, respectively, for finance lease obligations.
