2020-09-24 21:00 13127

SHISHI, China, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- KBS Fashion Group Limited ("KBS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: KBSF), a leading fully-integrated casual menswear company in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter and first half of fiscal year 2020 ended June 30, 2020.

Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues for the second quarter and first half of 2020 were $2.3 million and $4.4 million, respectively, compared to $4.5 million and $9.0 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2019.
  • Gross margin for the second quarter and first half of 2020 were 23% and 26%, respectively, compared to 39% and 37%, respectively, for the same periods in 2019.
  • GAAP net loss and diluted loss per share for the second quarter of 2020 were $1.1 million and $0.44, respectively, compared to net income and diluted earnings per share of $0.4 million and $0.15, respectively, for the same period in 2019.
  • GAAP net loss and diluted loss per share for the first half of 2020 were $3.1 million and $1.21, respectively, compared to net income and diluted earnings per share of $0.61 million and $0.25, respectively, for the same period in 2019.
  • Working capital was $21.72 million as of June 30, 2020. Cash and restricted cash totaled $16.4 million as of June 30, 2020.

Mr. Keyan Yan, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "The second quarter and first half of 2020 were challenging because our revenue was constrained by the weak demand in the fashion industry, as well as continued business difficulties related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the management team acted quickly. During the first quarter of 2020, we scaled back operations, as our employees worked remotely or at premises in shifts for limited periods of time in response to nationwide lockdowns and quarantines due to COVID-19. We resumed full operations since late March. Our quick response allowed us to minimize downside for the latter half of 2020 and get ahead of potentially necessary business-model changes, such as renting out unused facilities and partnering with manufacturers to sell disposable face masks."

Mr. Yan continued, "Our priority to ensure business continuity remains unchanged as we continue to navigate these challenging times. We are focused on enhancing product offerings to grow potential businesses through our vendors and overseas sales channels."

"Our ability to adapt to these changes allowed us to not only survive amidst an incredibly unprecedented economic landscape but to exceed our projected expectations for the first half of 2020. Importantly, we expect revenue growth recovery in the fourth quarter of this year as the pandemic situation in China has been gradually contained, while taking additional steps to control costs and hold expenses to a minimum." Mr. Yan concluded.

Cost of Sales and Gross Profit

In line with the decrease of our revenues, total cost of sales decreased by $0.98 million, 36.1%, to $1.73 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $2.71 million for the same period of last year.

Total gross profit decreased by $1.19 million, or 69.6%, to $0.52 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $1.71 million for the same period of last year. Gross profits for distribution network, corporate stores and OEM were $0.45 million, $0.06 million, and $0.02 million, respectively, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $0.82 million, $0.12 million, and $0.77 million, respectively, for the same period of last year.

Overall gross margin was 23.1% for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 38.6% for the same period of last year. On a segment basis, gross margins for distribution network, corporate stores and OEM were 24.8%, 51.9%, and 5.2%, respectively, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 34.1%, 99.4%, and 40.5%, respectively, for the same period of last year. The decrease in gross margin was due to the impact from COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown of factories, as well as the decreased customer orders, resulting in decreased profits across all segments. 

Operating Expenses and Operating Income (Loss)

Distribution and selling expenses increased by $1.17 million, or 435.78%, to $1.44 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $0.27 million for the same period of last year. The increase in distribution and selling expenses was mainly due to the increase in special Covid-19 related subsidies to our distributors and necessary advertising expenses. The apparel and fashion industry has faced enormous challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic. With store closures, overall consumer demand has plummeted, resulting in weak sales and tight cash flow for our distributors. In order to ease their burden and help their business sustain, we increased the special subsidies to the distributors who have good credits to support their operations during the difficult time.

Administrative expenses decreased by $0.10 million, or 11.4%, to $0.76 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $0.86 million for same period of last year. The slight decrease in administrative expenses was mainly due the adjustment of compensation to senior executives and board members.

Total loss from operations was $2.10 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to operating income of $0.62 million for the same period of last year. Operating loss margin was 91.8% for the second quarter of 2020, compared to operating income margin of 13.9% for the same period of last year.

Income (Loss) before Income Taxes

Loss before income taxes was $2.08 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to loss before tax of $0.60 million for the same period of last year.

Income tax benefit was $0.95 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to income tax expense of $0.23 million for the same period of last year.
