Emerson Radio: Friday, August 14, 2015 EMERSON RADIO CORP. REPORTS FISCAL 2016 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

HACKENSACK, N.J. – August 14, 2015 – Emerson Radio Corp. (NYSE MKT: MSN) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Net product sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 were $18.3 million, as compared to $24.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015, a decrease of $6.5 million, or 26.4%. The lower year-over-year net product sales were principally driven by a $6.4 million, or 26.3%, decrease in net sales of houseware products, which was the result of lower year-over-year net sales of microwave ovens, driven mainly by product discontinuations by the Company’s key custome rs and the effects of the 2014/2015 Los Angeles/Long Beach port strike, partially offset by increases in net sales of compact refrigeration and wine products. Net sales of audio products for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 were down $0.2 million, or 28.8%, resulting from decreased net sales of the Company’s clock radio and portable audio product offerings, driven by competitive activity in the space. Due primarily to the aforementioned product discontinuations, the Company expects its net product sales for the second quarter and full year of fiscal 2016 to continue to decrease as compared to the second quarter and full year of fiscal 2015, respectively.

Licensing revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $1.2 million, as compared to $1.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, an increase of $0.1 million, or 11.3%, principally due to the execution during the second quarter of fiscal 2015 of a licensing agreement renewal with one of the Company’s non-strategic licensees.

As a result of the foregoing factors, net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 were $19.5 million, a decrease of $6.4 million, or 24.8%, as compared to first quarter fiscal 2015 net revenues of $25.9 million.

Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $0.1 million, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 85.7%, from operating income of $0.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 due to the lower year-over-year net product sales and higher year-over-year cost of sales as a percentage of sales, partly offset by a $0.1 million, or 4.4%, decrease in year-over year SG&A expenses.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $0.1 million as compared to $0.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 81.4%, due primarily to the year-over-year decrease in operating income. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 were $0.00, as compared to $0.02 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, a decrease of $0.02 per diluted share, or 100.0%.

Duncan Hon, Chief Executive Officer of Emerson Radio, commented “Our first quarter fiscal 2016 net income declined significantly as compared to the prior year due primarily to lower net product sales and lower margins on those product sales, driven by product discontinuations by the Company’s key customers and the effects of the 2014/2015 Los Angeles/Long Beach port strike. We also continue to experience intense competition, including downward pricing pressure, within all of our product categories. The Company continues to seek to implement pricing, product strategy initiatives and licensing opportunities to improve the Company’s results of operations, although there can be no assurance that such initiatives will be successfully implemented or have the desired effects on the Company’s results of operations and financial condition.”
