SPY Inc. Reports Financial Results for the First Half and Second Quarter 2014
SPY(R) Inc. Total Company First Half Net Sales Reported as $17.4 Million

CARLSBAD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- SPY Inc. (OTCBB: XSPY) today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

First half sales were $17.4 million in 2014, a decrease of 9% or $1.6 million less than in the first half of 2013. Sales included lower closeout sales of $0.8 million in 2014, compared to $1.4 million in 2013. The decrease in our net sales was primarily driven by an overall decline in the consumer market coupled with several key retailers currently holding lower levels of inventory and fewer closeout sales of our sunglass products. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 54% for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to 52% for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Second quarter sales were $8.2 million in 2014, a decrease of 18% or $1.8 million less than in the second quarter of 2013. The decrease in our net sales was primarily driven by an overall decline in the consumer market coupled with several key retailers currently holding lower levels of inventory and fewer closeout sales of our sunglass products. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 56% for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to 53% for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

"Although we encountered a challenging consumer environment in the first couple of months of the second quarter we were pleased with the top line improvements in June and especially with the increase in our gross margin rate to the highest level in the last four years," said Michael Marckx, president and CEO. "The margin expansion is a direct result of our strong product development team as well as a concerted effort across the organization to reduce operating costs. Achieving an operating profit along with our expanding portfolio of products, including our successful Happy Lens™ Collection, positions us well for the balance of 2014 as we focus on fulfilling strong pre-orders for snow goggles, driving overall sales, improving our product margins and managing our operating costs."

Income from operations decreased by $0.2 million to $0.2 million in the first half of 2014, compared to income from operations of $0.4 million in the first half of 2013. The $0.2 million decrease was partially due to the decrease in sales offset with a 167 basis point improvement in gross profit as a percent of sales. Additionally, total operating expenses in the first half of 2014 were lower by $0.4 million, compared to the first half of 2013. Cash flow generated by operating activities was $1.5 million in the first half of 2014.

Income from operations decreased by $0.2 million to $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to income from operations of approximately $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. The $0.2 million decrease was partially due to the decrease in sales offset with a 271 basis point improvement in gross profit as a percent of sales. Additionally, total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were lower by $0.5 million, compared to the second quarter of 2013.

The Company incurred a net loss of $1.5 million and $1.3 million during the first half of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

The Company incurred a net loss of $0.7 million and $0.6 million during the second quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

SPY Inc.:

We have a happy disrespect for the usual way of looking (at life) and the need to SEE HAPPY. It is this mindset that drives us to design, market, and distribute premium products for people who "live" to be outdoors, pushing the boundaries in action sports, motorsports, snow sports, cycling and multi-sports. We actively support the lifestyle subcultures that surround these pursuits, and as a result our products serve the broader fashion, music and entertainment markets of the youth culture. Our reason for being is to create the unusual and this is what helps us deliver distinctive products to people who are active, fun and a bit irreverent, like us. Our principal products -- sunglasses, goggles and prescription frames -- are marketed with fun and creativity under the SPY® brand.
