Unifi Inc released preliminary operating results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 26, 2011.

Net sales for the June quarter increased $18 million, or 10 percent, to $195 million from $177 million in the June 2010 quarter. Net income for the June 2011 quarter rose to $13.5 million from $5.5 million, and earnings per share increased to $0.67 from $0.27, also compared to the June 2010 quarter. Earnings for the quarter include $12 million of pre-tax earnings from the Company's unconsolidated investment in Parkdale America, LLC, a $6.5 million improvement from the prior year quarter. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) for the June 2011 quarter were $14.1 million.

For the 2011 fiscal year, net income rose to $25.1 million or $1.25 per share, compared to $10.7 million or $0.53 per share for the 2010 fiscal year. Highlights for the 2011 fiscal year include:

* A $91 million, or 15 percent, increase in net sales to $708 million, as the Company increased prices to cover higher raw material costs, improved market share in key segments, increased sales of its premier value added products and grew volume in its operations in Central America and China.
* A $45 million reduction in the 11.5% senior secured notes due 2014, as the Company used excess operating cash and borrowing under its revolving credit facility to redeem a portion of the notes.
* Adjusted EBITDA of $60 million for the fiscal year, representing a $5 million increase over the prior fiscal year.

"Despite the effects of a sluggish economy and significant increases in raw material prices throughout the year, our focus on continuous improvement across all areas of the organization helped drive increases in net income and EBITDA for the year," said Bill Jasper, Chairman and CEO of Unifi. "We are pleased with progress made in operational efficiency and the growth of our premier value added products and are encouraged by the positive response from our customers to the opening of our Repreve Recycling Center. We are also pleased by the performance of Parkdale America and its effective management of the business despite highly volatile cotton prices during the year."

Cash-on-hand increased from $19.1 million at March 27, 2011 to $27.5 million at June 26, 2011. This $8.4 million increase is primarily a result of cash flow from operations and working capital improvements, as inventory turns improved and raw material costs started to decrease. As of June 26, 2011, $133.7 million of the 11.5% senior secured notes remain outstanding and borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facility were $34.6 million.

"We continue to focus on maintaining the strength of our balance sheet by focusing on cash flow from operations and working capital management programs," said Ron Smith, Chief Financial Officer of Unifi. "This persistent focus on cash generation allowed us to redeem $45 million of our 11.5% Senior Secured Notes during fiscal year 2011 and plan an additional redemption of $10 million, which we expect to be completed in the first quarter of fiscal 2012."
