Diluted EPS Increased 75.0% to $0.35

Wholesales Sales Increased 7.3% to $39.8 Million

Retail Sales Increased 6.7% to $11.7 Million

NELSONVILLE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rocky Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: RCKY) today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Sales and Income

Second quarter net sales were $58.2 million compared to $58.5 million in the second quarter of 2017. The Company reported second quarter net income of $2.6 million, or $0.35 per diluted share compared to a net income of $1.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017.

Net sales were $119.6 million and $121.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Company reported net income of $5.9 million, or $0.79 per diluted share and a net income of $3.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Jason Brooks, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We had an excellent second quarter highlighted by high-single digit growth in wholesale sales combined with continued strength in our retail division. Our focus on introducing innovative new products into the marketplace, supporting our retail partners with great service and enhancing our use of digital advertising is driving increased direct sales of Georgia Boot, Durango, and Rocky’s current offerings at higher gross margins. At the same time, our internal manufacturing capabilities are providing us with a great opportunity to expand our commercial military operations both in the U.S. and overseas. We are also encouraged with the ongoing success of Lehigh, our differentiated direct business-to-business model, which continues to grow through key account wins and increased participation and retention with existing accounts. Looking ahead, I’m confident that we have the right strategies and people in place to build on our recent accomplishments and deliver improved profitability and greater shareholder value for years to come.”

Second Quarter Review

Net sales for the second quarter decreased 0.4% to $58.2 million compared to $58.5 million a year ago. Wholesale sales for the second quarter increased 7.3% to $39.8 million compared to $37.1 million for the same period in 2017. Retail sales for the second quarter increased 6.7% to $11.7 million compared to $11.0 million for the same period last year. Military segment sales for the second quarter were $6.7 million compared to $10.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Gross margin in the second quarter of 2018 increased to $19.5 million, or 33.6% of sales, compared to $18.2 million, or 31.1% of sales, for the same period last year. The 250 basis point increase was driven by higher wholesale and retail margins combined with a lower percentage of military sales, which carry lower gross margins than wholesale and retail sales.

Operating expenses were $16.2 million, or 27.8% of net sales, for the second quarter of 2018 compared to $15.9 million, or 27.2% of net sales, a year ago.

Income from operations for the second quarter of 2018 was $3.4 million, or 5.8% of net sales compared to $2.3 million for the same period a year ago, or 3.9% of net sales.
