Cool Holdings Reports First Quarter Results

Cool Holdings Reports First Quarter Results

- Net Sales of $13.9 million

- Reduction of $14.5 million of Debt

PR Newswire

MIAMI, July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cool Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AWSM), (the "Company" or "Cool Holdings"), the parent company of Simply Mac, Inc., the largest Apple Premier Partner in the U.S. ("Simply Mac"), today announced results for its first fiscal quarter ended May 2, 2020.

Reinier Voigt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cool Holdings, stated, "Our first fiscal quarter was unprecedented in many ways, and included both highs and lows. We were most gratified in the month of March to complete the restructuring of our outstanding debt, which gave rise to a $13.6 million gain and cured the deficit balance in our stockholders' equity. Conversely, it was mid-March when the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to close 12 of our 42 stores, significantly reduce operating hours at the remaining stores and lay-off half our workforce. During this unprecedented time, our focus shifted to ensuring the safety and well-being of both our employees and customers." 

Mr. Voigt added, "Because our business is instrumental in supporting adults working remotely and students studying at home with Apple laptops and tablets, certified repair services and technical support, our stores were deemed 'essential' in most markets and we were pleased to fill that need, especially while Apple stores were closed. The pandemic significantly depressed our sales and gross profit during the quarter, as we weren't able to begin reopening stores and rehiring employees until early May. A further challenge came in the form of a constrained supply chain, which resulted in product shortages that we hope will be corrected in the near future."

Commenting further, Mr. Voigt noted, "As we look to the future, we are cautiously optimistic. The uncertainty of COVID-19 is still a lingering cloud, but our debt restructuring has left us with a much healthier balance sheet from which to grow our business. We have gained new customers in local markets during the time other stores were closed, and hope that our customer satisfaction scores are indicators that they may become loyal 'repeat' customers. Although difficult, these times provide us with a rare opportunity to open new stores selectively and relocate old stores with expiring leases at very affordable lease rates and tenant improvement allowances as landlords actively search for tenants. Having recently disposed of our Latin American operations, we are now directing all our energies and focus on operational efficiencies, expense control and working capital management. This focus has positioned us to take advantage of a recovering supply chain and customer traffic as the pandemic eases."

First Quarter Results

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 amounted to $13.9 million, which represented an increase of $11.4 million, or 451%, from $2.5 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2019. The significant increase in sales between the periods is the result of the acquisition of Simply Mac on September 25, 2019. Prior to the acquisition, continuing operations consisted of three OneClick retail stores in Florida and a Cooltech Distribution business, which the Company was in the process of winding down.

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 amounted to $4.5 million, an increase of $4.1 million, or 1,145%, from $361,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2019. The Company's gross profit margin for the current quarter was 32.2%, substantially higher than 14.3% in the prior year quarter. The increased gross profit compared to the prior quarter resulted from the addition of the Simply Mac stores, and the improvement in our gross margin percentage reflects the fact that, compared to our OneClick stores in the prior year, a higher proportion of Simply Mac store sales are derived from service, which generates higher gross margins compared to hardware sales.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 amounted to $7.1 million, an increase of $4.4 million, or 163%, from $2.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase in operating expenses relates primarily to the acquisition of Simply Mac, but also reflects increased legal, audit and consulting fees.

Within other income (expense), interest expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 amounted to $924,000, an increase of $196,000, or 27%, over $728,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase is attributable to a much higher debt level prior to the debt restructuring in the current period as compared to the prior year and the fact that the new debt had a much higher effective interest rate after factoring debt discounts arising from conversion features and warrants that were accreted to interest expense over the term of the debt. In the first quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company also recorded a $543,000 gain from the decrease in value of financial derivatives that arose in connection with the issuance of convertible debt and warrants, and recorded a $13.6 million gain on the extinguishment of $14.5 million (89%) in face value of debt previously outstanding at December 31, 2019.

Net income for the fiscal 2021 first quarter amounted to $10.3 million compared to a net loss of $3.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2019.

On the Company's balance sheet, the aggregate amount of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of May 2, 2020 amounted to $4.9 million, an increase of $3.0 million from the balance at December 31, 2019. From a working capital perspective, excluding the current portion of operating lease liabilities, the Company had $1.7 million in working capital as of May 2, 2020, a significant improvement from the $13.7 million working-capital deficit as of December 31, 2019.  The working capital improvement reflects the debt restructuring, which also resulted in an increase in stockholders' equity from a $10.0 million deficit as of December 31, 2019 to a positive $1.8 million as of May 2, 2020.
