Unifi, Inc. released preliminary operating results for the second quarter ended December 29, 2013 of its 2014 fiscal year. 

Net income for the current year quarter was $6.4 million, or $0.34 per basic share, compared to net income of $2.4 million, or $0.12 per basic share, for the prior year quarter, reflecting gains from improved margins, lower net interest expense and higher earnings from the Company's equity affiliates. These gains were partially offset by higher expenses for income taxes.

Highlights for the December 2013 quarter included:

- Adjusted EBITDA improved to $12.6 million for the current year quarter from $12.2 million for the prior year quarter;
- Domestic gross profit was higher due to improved margins and lower expenses for depreciation;
- Higher earnings from the Company's equity affiliates, primarily Parkdale America LLC, increased income before income taxes by $3.9 million versus the prior year quarter; and
- The Company used $12.9 million of excess cash flows from operations to repurchase 522,220 shares of its common stock under its previously announced stock repurchase program.

A net sales decrease of $11.5 million, or 6.7%, to $160.6 million for the second quarter of the current year compared to net sales of $172.1 million for the prior year quarter, was offset by improved operating margins and earnings from equity affiliates. 

The comparative decrease was primarily attributable to the timing of the holiday shutdown, which adversely affected domestic sales activity in the second quarter of the current year versus the third quarter of the prior year; in addition, declines in sales volumes for the Company's foreign subsidiaries, reductions in lower margin business and the currency translation effects of the weakened Brazilian Real also contributed to lower net sales.

"We are encouraged with the continued performance of our domestic business, focusing on products that are profitable, defensible and compliant within the Central American Free Trade Agreement, and we have experienced growth in our domestic operations from our premier value-added products," said Roger Berrier, President and Chief Operating Officer of Unifi. 

"Although operating conditions remain challenging in Brazil and China, we remain encouraged by the long-term sales opportunities that we anticipate from the development work that we are currently engaged in."

Cash-on-hand as of December 29, 2013 was $15.5 million, an increase of $6.8 million from June 30, 2013.  Net debt at the end of the December 2013 quarter was $87.3 million, compared to $89.0 million at June 30, 2013.  As of December 29, 2013, the weighted average interest rate for the Company's outstanding debt obligations was 3.1%.

Net income was $15.3 million, or $0.80 per basic share, for the six months ended December 29, 2013 compared to net income of $4.7 million, or $0.23 per share, for the prior year six-month period.  A net sales decrease of $15.7 million, or 4.5%, to $329.3 million for the current year six-month period compared to net sales of $345.0 million for the prior year six-month period, was offset by improved operating margins and earnings from equity affiliates.
