LAKE BARRINGTON, IL . ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2022 / Yunhong CTI Ltd. (Nasdaq:CTIB) ('Yunhong CTI' or the 'Company'), a leading manufacturer of custom film products, foil and latex novelty balloons, and flexible packaging products, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. Management will host a conference call to discuss these results and other matters on Thursday, August 16, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Central Time / 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Management Commentary

'Our second-quarter performance closes out a solid first half of the fiscal year despite the surge in the market price for helium. Our financial results reflect the resiliency created by reconstructing our group and demonstrate our team's ability to execute operationally and financially ,' said Frank Cesario, Chief Executive Officer, Yunhong CTI. 'Our strongest business is foil balloons, and most are filled with helium rather than air. As with so many things this year, the cost of helium has increased substantially, which negatively impacted our customers. We felt this market dynamic during the May-June timeframe when customers replaced helium balloon orders with elevated orders for more air-filled balloons. This is not a direct replacement from our perspective, and our results show it. '

Commenting further on Q2 2022 financial results, Cesario stated, 'April started well, ahead of last year, but the helium issue caught up to our order book in May and June. Our current expectations indicate that the elevated price of helium will run its course during the third quarter and begin to normalize in the fourth quarter.'

'As we have discussed, optimizing our operations has led to improved profitability. One can see from the ‘Discontinued Operations' line of 2021 that we posted a loss last year of $0.8 million that has not been repeated this year, thanks to divestiture of our unprofitable subsidiary. As we turn our attention to investing for future growth, we are confident in the underlying fundamentals of our business are well positioned.'

Second Quarter 2022 Results

Yunhong CTI's net sales were $4.4 million and $10.2 million during the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022, compared with $5.7 million and $12.3 million during the same periods of 2021.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, net sales by product category were as follows:

Non-GAAP Results

To provide additional information regarding the Company's results, we have disclosed in this press release a Non-GAAP measure that combines EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization) as well as results excluding deconsolidation charges and certain non-recurring charges and benefits. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings (loss) before net interest, other expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization expense. The Company has included EBITDA as a supplemental financial measure in this press release because it is a key measure used by management and the board of directors to understand and evaluate the core operating performance of the Company, to prepare budgets and operating plans, and because management believes such measure provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results. However, use of EBITDA as an analytic tool has its limitations and you should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP. A reconciliation to the closest GAAP statement of this non-GAAP measure is contained in the accompanying table. Similarly, management and the board of directors look at the results of the entity going forward, without the impact of deconsolidation costs related to the disposal of subsidiaries and related non-cash charges, which can be significant. Again, this pro forma result is not a replacement for the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP. It simply provides another viewpoint that may otherwise be obscured by a comprehensive presentation. A reconciliation between this pro forma result and our financial results as reported under GAAP is also presented.
