DOREL Reports Second Quarter 2011

DOREL Reports Second Quarter 201108:21 EDT Tuesday, August 09, 2011EXCHANGESTSX: DII.B, DII.ARecreational/Leisure segment maintains strong growthU.S. economy affects Juvenile saleMONTREAL, Aug. 9, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX: DII.B DII.A) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011. Total revenue for the period was US$619.0 million, up 1.9% from US$607.7 million for the same quarter last year. Net income was US$23.0 million or US$0.70 per diluted share compared with US$32.9 million or US$0.99 per diluted share for the corresponding quarter of 2010.Year-to-date revenue was US$1.23 billion, compared to US$1.20 billion last year. Net income was US$54.2 million or US$1.65 per diluted share compared to US$71.1 million or US$2.14 per diluted share for the first half of 2010. Upon transition to IFRS, previously issued earnings per diluted share of US$1.05 and US$2.18 for the second quarter and six months of fiscal 2010 respectively have been restated to US$0.99 and US$2.14."Dorel's Recreational / Leisure segment maintained its strong performance through the second quarter with a year-over-year revenue increase of 16% and an operating profit gain of 25%. With its strong focus on innovation, Cannondale has become a much desired brand and is selling very well. In addition, the marketing investments made in Schwinn have brought the desired results," commented Dorel President and CEO, Martin Schwartz."Costs in the first half of 2011 are higher than last year, and given the highly conservative spending of today's typical consumer, initiating price increases to our customers is a challenge, particularly within our Juvenile segment in the U.S. While the economic climate in Europe remains difficult, notably in southern Europe, Dorel Europe is protecting or increasing its juvenile products' market share. Home Furnishings was affected by the still weak U.S. economy which impacted POS levels, as well as by the weaker U.S. dollar which hurt our Canadian plants shipping into the U.S," commented Mr. Schwartz. Summary of Financial HighlightsSecond Quarters Ended June 30All figures in thousands of US $, except per share amounts  2011 2010 Change %Total revenue 619,010 607,695 1.9%Net income 22,993 32,925 -30.2% Per share - Basic 0.70 1.00 -30.0% Per share - Diluted 0.70 0.99 -29.3%Average number of shares outstanding -      diluted weighted average 32,828,089 33,316,586                Summary of Financial HighlightsSix Months Ended June 30All figures in thousands of US $, except per share amounts  2011 2010 Change %Total revenue 1,226,793 1,204,008 1.9%Net income 54,157 71,131 -23.9% Per share - Basic 1.66 2.16 -23.1% Per share - Diluted 1.65 2.14 -22.9%Average number of shares outstanding -      diluted weighted average 32,862,173 33,292,611                        Juvenile Segment                     Second Quarters Ended June30  2011 2010   $ % of rev. $ % of rev. Change %Total revenue 243,965   259,791   -6.1%Gross profit 61,736 25.3% 69,489 26.7% -11.2%Operating profit 14,855 6.1% 25,970 10.0% -42.8%                      Six Months Ended June 30  2011 2010   $ % of rev. $ % of rev. Change %Total revenue 513,585   545,584   -5.9%Gross profit 133,356 26.0% 152,588 28.0% -12.6%Operating profit 38,527 7.5% 59,101 10.8% -34.8%Second quarter revenue declined in the majority of the Juvenile segment's businesses, particularly when expressed in local currency. Revenues declined by 6.1% and after removing the impact of varying exchange rates, the overall organic revenue decline was approximately 12% for the quarter and 9% for the first half. The most significant reduction in revenue was at Dorel Juvenile Group USA (DJG) where the depressed retail environment due to the weak economy affected POS levels and sales and has driven a less favourable sales mix.In Europe, sales in Euros were down just over 4% due to a tough economic environment, however upon conversion to the U.S. dollar, recorded sales increased by 8.5%. The declines in Europe were most pronounced in Southern Europe. Notwithstanding these results, Dorel Europe is preserving its market share. For example, it is maintaining its leadership in the all-important car seat category and is preserving its high market share in strollers. A number of new products have been launched in recent months abroad and several more will be introduced at the Cologne, Germany juvenile show next month.Traditionally in weaker economies, commodity prices decline which allows for sustained profitability even in an environment of poor demand. However the first half of 2011 experienced both higher costs and weakened demand. This resulted in the majority of these costs being absorbed by the Company, particularly at DJG, as retailers were reluctant to increase pricing to consumers in the current retail environment. Europe was also negatively impacted by higher costs, though the impact was less significant.Recreational/Leisure Segment            Second Quarters Ended June30  2011 2010   $ % of rev. $ % of rev. Change %Total revenue 249,094   214,888   15.9%Gross profit 60,592 24.3% 51,519 24.0% 17.6%Operating profit 21,274 8.5% 17,009 7.9% 25.1%                      Six Months Ended June 30  2011 2010   $ % of rev. $ % of rev. Change %Total revenue 449,521   396,565   13.4%Gross profit 111,587 24.8% 97,642 24.6% 14.3%Operating profit 39,045 8.7% 32,080 8.1% 21.7%The second quarter's sales increase of 15.9% was driven by strong sales in the Cycling Sport's Group, the segment's independent bicycle dealer (IBD) division. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange variations on the segment's non-US based businesses, organic revenue increased approximately 12% for the quarter and 11% year-to-date. For the quarter, the IBD channel experienced sales gains in all of its divisions which are located in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia, with Europe posting a particularly strong sales increase of over 50%. There has also been strong revenue growth within the segment's international IBD distributors in Europe and Latin America.Consumers remain attracted to Dorel's premium bicycle brands. The demand for Cannondale is very strong and GT, Schwinn and Mongoose continue to make important gains in key North American and European IBD markets. Growth is coming both from existing dealers and from new distribution for all brands through a combination of additional dealers and cross-selling at existing dealers.The sales success of the segment's premium bicycles can be attributed to successful new product introductions and increased promotional spending which is improving brand awareness. Product development also remains a key focus. This is evident in the exciting innovations in the 2012 Cannondale line up, which is now ready to be shipped. The 2012 Schwinn and GT lines also feature significant changes with updated frame specifications and components.After a slow start due to a wet spring and retailers closely controlling inventories, second quarter Pacific Cycle sales to the mass merchant distribution channel improved slightly over last year. POS levels have increased since the weather finally broke in early June. Bolstered by an aggressive advertising and marketing campaign which has increased Schwinn's brand awareness, Pacific Cycle is increasing its market share in the adult category. Schwinn is outperforming the competition and has made gains over last year's second quarter.Home Furnishings Segment           Second Quarters Ended June 30  2011 2010   $ % of rev. $ % of rev. Change %Total revenue         125,951        133,016   -5.3%Gross profit           15,603 12.4%        20,069 15.1% -22.3%Operating profit             6,267 5.0%        11,269 8.5% -44.4%                      Six Months Ended June 30  2011 2010   $ % of rev. $ % of rev. Change %Total revenue         263,687        261,859   0.7%Gross profit           32,789 12.4%        39,893 15.2% -17.8%Operating profit           14,017 5.3%        21,972 8.4% -36.2%Home Furnishings revenues decreased 5.3% in the second quarter and were up 0.7% year-to-date. As in Juvenile, POS levels were affected by the fragile U.S. economy. The segment's products appeal primarily to opening price point consumers, who are being prudent in their spending choices. As well, revenue was affected by the decision by Cosco Home & Office to exit unprofitable product SKUs. An increase in other furniture lines at the segment's other divisions, mainly upholstered furniture and futons, partially offset this decrease.Cost increases on steel, textiles, container freight as well as other inputs affected margins.  Second quarter profitability was further compounded by the strength of the Canadian dollar which is increasing costs for two of the segments plants that are based in Canada and ship the majority of its product to the United States.OtherThe second quarter tax rate was 28.1% and 20.5% year-to-date. This compares to 25.4% and 23.4% for the second quarter and year-to-date respectively last year. Based on current expectations, the Company maintains that the annual tax rate will be in the range of 15% to 20%. However, variations in earnings across quarters mean that this rate may vary significantly from quarter to quarter.Versus the first quarter of 2011, second quarter inventory levels increased mainly due to an increase within the Home Furnishings segment as a strong third quarter shipping of futons is anticipated. Therefore inventories rose to US$504.0 million as of June 30, 2011. Versus year end, inventories have decreased by US$6.1 million. The impact of the weaker US dollar was to increase the June balance by US$11.0 million versus year end. As previously stated, the Company estimates the appropriate level of inventory to support the business to be in the US$450 to US$470 million range. This remains the expectation for the second half of this year. First half inventory reductions generated approximately US$17 million in cash flow.Quarterly dividendThe Board of Directors of Dorel declared its regular quarterly dividend of US$0.15 per share on the outstanding number of the Company's Class A Multiple Voting Shares, Class B Subordinate Voting Shares and Deferred Share Units. The dividend is payable on September 6, 2011 to shareholders of record as at the close of business on August 23, 2011.OutlookThere are several catalysts which are expected to maintain the positive momentum in the Company's Recreational/Leisure segment. Innovative 2012 Cannondale models are being met with enthusiastic response from independent bicycle dealers and on-going marketing investments are being made in both the Schwinn and Mongoose brands.  In Juvenile, there are no indications of an imminent rebound and as such the second half will remain challenging.  In Home Furnishings, the impact of the poor economy has been less pronounced than in Juvenile and the second half is expected to be slightly better than the prior year."Global economic uncertainty, underlined by the recent volatility in world stock markets and ongoing concerns in Europe, continue to drive fears of another possible recession.  This is depressing already weak consumer confidence and is further undermining the existing fragile retail environment. On the positive side, with the economy not recovering as many had anticipated, we are seeing some easing of commodity prices as well as some excess capacity at our overseas suppliers. Should this trend continue, this could alleviate some of the margin pressure experienced during the first half. Notwithstanding the difficult economy, Dorel is remaining aggressive in new product development and exciting new products will be introduced in the upcoming months," concluded Mr. Schwartz.Conference CallDorel Industries Inc. will hold a conference call to discuss these results today, August 9, 2011 at 1:00 P.M.
