GLEN ALLEN, Va., Nov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamilton Beach Brands Holding Company (NYSE: HBB), which operates through its wholly owned subsidiary Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc., today announced results for the third quarter of 2022.

Highlights

  • Revenue decreased 3.8% compared to Q3 2021, reflecting lower consumer sales overall partially offset by higher commercial sales
  • Operating profit was $9.4 million compared to $7.4 million in Q3 2021, reflecting gross profit margin expansion and lower SG&A expense
  • Demand for small kitchen appliances continues to be significantly higher than pre-pandemic levels and modestly softer than 2021
  • For the full year 2022, Hamilton Beach Brands expects revenue to decrease slightly and operating profit to increase significantly compared to 2021

 Third Quarter 2022 Compared to Third Quarter 2021

Total revenue decreased $5.9 million, or 3.8%, to $150.8 million compared to $156.7 million, primarily due to lower unit volume partially offset by price increases and a favorable product mix. Sales decreases in the Company's Latin American, Mexican and U.S. consumer markets were partially offset by increases in the global commercial and Canadian consumer markets. Revenue also decreased in Brazil and China as the Company has transitioned to a licensing model in those markets as of the end of 2021. In the Company's consumer markets, decreased sales in the third quarter reflected continued inventory rebalancing overall by many retailers, timing of holiday build orders, and slightly softer point of sale. 

In the Company's global commercial market, revenue increased $3.9 million, or 35.8%. This growth reflects a continued strong rebound in the food service and hospitality industries from pandemic-driven demand softness as well as the Company's new product introductions and line extensions.

The Company continued to make progress with its strategic initiatives in the third quarter of 2022. Ecommerce sales increased 7.8% and accounted for 34.5% of total revenue compared to 30.8% in the third quarter of 2021. Premium market sales increased 35.1%, and sales in the home health and wellness market grew 29.6%.

Gross profit was $34.8 million compared to $33.3 million. Gross profit margin expanded to 23.1% compared to 21.2%, due to the impact of pricing initiatives that offset higher product costs, favorable product mix, and lower expenses for outside warehousing and labor compared to the prior year.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $25.4 million compared to $25.8 million, primarily due to non-recurring expenses for last year's distribution center relocation. 

Operating profit was $9.4 million compared to $7.4 million

Net income was $5.9 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.7 million, or $0.41 per diluted share.

During the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company repurchased 109,828 shares of its Class A common stock at prevailing market prices for an aggregate purchase price of $1.4 million.

Cash Flow and Debt  

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, net cash used for operating activities was $40.2 million compared to a use of $4.1 million in the prior year, primarily due to net working capital, which was a use of cash of $62.1 million in 2022 compared to use of cash of $4.4 million in 2021. Trade receivables provided net cash of $21.4 million during 2022 compared to $26.5 million in 2021, due to the lower sales and improvement in days outstanding. Net cash used for inventory and accounts payable combined was $83.5 million in 2022 compared to $30.9 million in 2021.

Elevated inventory levels are primarily due to longer lead times in the supply chain, retailer inventory rebalancing programs, and normal variations in holiday build ordering patterns. While the Company's products are not in an overstocked position at retail, overstock levels in other categories are having an impact on retailer reorders overall. Strong placements for the holiday selling season and purchase order adjustments are expected to enable the Company to significantly reduce current inventory levels by the end of the year.

Capital expenditures through the third quarter of 2022 decreased to $1.6 million compared to $9.1 million through the third quarter of 2021, primarily due to capital spending for the Company's new distribution center in the prior year that did not recur.

At September 30, 2022, net debt, or debt minus cash and cash equivalents, was $144.5 million compared to $113.5 million at September 30, 2021, and $95.7 million at December 31, 2021, due to higher net working capital.

Outlook

Demand for small kitchen appliances in the U.S. remains significantly higher than pre-pandemic levels and modestly softer than 2021. Consumers continue to prepare a significant number of meals and beverages at home as a result of new habits formed during the pandemic, hybrid or continued remote work-from-home practices, a heightened interest in healthy eating, and as a means to control expenses during inflationary times. The global commercial market is expected to continue to rebound strongly from pandemic-driven demand softness.

The Company expects continued progress with its strategic initiatives in 2022 as it focuses on increasing sales in the premium, home health and wellness, and global commercial markets, and in the ecommerce channel. The Company has introduced a broad array of new products across all of its brands and has secured strong placements for the holiday selling season. For the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company expects that revenue will increase modestly compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. For the full year 2022, Hamilton Beach Brands expects revenue to decrease slightly compared to record revenue in 2021. Full-year operating profit is expected to increase significantly compared to 2021, including a $10 million insurance recovery in the first quarter of 2022. Final results will depend upon consumer pull-through and retailer reorders throughout the holiday selling season.

The Company's six strategic initiatives are focused on long-term growth and value creation. Following is a brief summary of each one.

Expand in Home Health and Wellness: This initiative was added in 2021. During the past year, the Company took many steps to introduce new products in the air purification, water filtration and home medical categories. New products in these categories are expected to generate revenue as they are launched in 2022 and into 2023 and gain momentum. To date, the Company has:

  • Introduced the first products in a new line of premium air purifiers under the Clorox® brand name as part of an exclusive multiyear trademark licensing agreement with The Clorox Company. The Company is pleased with consumer acceptance of these new products.
  • Launched the Smart Sharps Bin® from Hamilton Beach Health® powered by HealthBeacon® for at-home injection care management in the U.S. home medical market under an exclusive multiyear agreement with HealthBeacon plc. In the third quarter of 2022, the system became Medicare and Medicaid eligible, in addition to being FSA and HSA eligible, which is expected to drive increased adoption.
  • Entered into an exclusive multiyear trademark licensing agreement with Brita® and plans to launch a new line of countertop water appliances in early 2023.

Gain Share in the Premium Market: New products and digital marketing are expected to drive growth of the Company's premium brand products. In 2022, the Company launched Generation 2 of the Bartesian® premium cocktail machine, introduced the Bartesian Duet, a smaller 2-bottle model, and a commercial model. The CHI® garment care brand continues to grow as consumers return to offices and engage in more out-of-home activities.

Lead in the Global Commercial Market: The Company expects to generate additional growth in the global commercial market through product development, digital marketing and increasing customer relationships with regional and global chains.

Drive Core Growth: The Company plans to drive growth of its flagship Hamilton Beach® and Proctor Silex® brands through innovative new product development, including an emphasis on higher priced products, and digital marketing.

Accelerate Digital Transformation: The Company plans to continue to invest in robust digital marketing for all of its brands and markets.

Leverage Partnerships and Acquisitions: The Company is actively engaged in the pursuit of additional trademark licensing agreements, strategic alliances and acquisitions that would drive growth in all of its markets.

Hamilton Beach Brands expects to benefit from its strengths and competitive advantages, even during periods of economic downturn. These include:

  • Leader in the small kitchen appliance industry.
  • Leading market share. Hamilton Beach is the #1 small kitchen appliance brand in the USA, in brick-and-mortar and ecommerce channels, based on units sold.
  • Strong portfolio of preferred, well-known, trusted brands covers the broad range of value to luxury markets and more than 50 categories. The Company's diversified portfolio provides exposure to high-income consumers through its premium products. It also provides numerous offerings to value-tier consumers and includes the opportunity to capture potential trade-down during times of economic downturn. The Company also has exposure to the higher-priced, higher-margin global commercial food service and hotel room amenities markets.
  • Well-developed ecommerce capability. Online sales accounted for 35.1% of total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
  • History of proven innovation. The Company has launched new products across the highest demand categories in the second half of 2022. The Company's new product development supports its strategic initiatives for growth of its flagship brands, Hamilton Beach and Proctor Silex, as well as in the premium, home health and wellness, and global commercial markets.
  • Resilient during past economic downturns. The small kitchen appliance industry and the Company have been resilient during recessionary times, as consumers become more home centric and cook more, and many product categories are considered essential.
