Miller Industries Reports 2020 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Miller Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MLR) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, net sales were $178.3 million, a decrease of 12.2%, compared to $203.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net income in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $12.0 million, or $1.05 per share, an increase of 2.8%, compared to net income of $11.7 million, or $1.03 per share, in the prior year period.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $24.3 million, or 13.6% of net sales, compared to $26.9 million, or 13.3% of net sales, for the fourth quarter of 2019. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $9.4 million, or 5.3% of net sales, compared to $11.8 million, or 5.8% of net sales, in the prior year period.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, net sales were $651.3 million, a decrease of 20.4% compared to $818.2 million in the prior year period.  The Company reported net income of $29.8 million, or $2.62 per share for the year of 2020, a decrease of 23.7% compared to net income of $39.1 million, or $3.43 per share for the full year of 2019.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share, payable March 22, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 15, 2021, the forty-first consecutive quarter that the Company has paid a dividend.

Jeffrey I. Badgley, Co-Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, "During the fourth quarter of 2020, we experienced steady improvement and I am encouraged by the underlying strength of our business and the resilience of our customer demand despite the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic."

Mr. Badgley continued, "While we were encouraged to finish the year with such strong operating results, the start to the first quarter of 2021 has not been without its challenges. As we discussed in greater detail in our Form 10-K filing, in the first half of the first quarter of 2021, we experienced significant delays in deliveries to our distributors caused by changes we made to our legacy business processes during the implementation of our new enterprise software system. During the same period, we also experienced significant supply chain disruptions due primarily to continued impacts from COVID-19, and extreme weather conditions across parts of the U.S. and tightening availability of freight trucks caused delays in delivering products to our facilities as well as to our customers. These factors caused substantial downward pressures on our revenues, margins and earnings during the first half of the first quarter of 2021. The business process improvements critical to developing our new software system are now essentially operational, allowing our delivery schedule to return to meeting current customer demand. The supply chain issues have now been greatly reduced but could recur. Based on our strong backlog and the current status of our process improvements, we believe we have the opportunity to substantially improve our operating results in 2021 beyond the first quarter.

Overall, I am extremely proud of our employees' continued commitment to providing industry leading customer service and I am confident that we will continue to capitalize on all future growth opportunities despite the headwinds we experienced in the first quarter of 2021."
