Historical Stock Chart
6 Months : From Jun 2019 to Dec 2019
XPEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: XPEL), a global provider of protective films and coatings, announced results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2019.
Second Quarter Highlights:
Revenues increased 4.5% to $30.1 million compared to second quarter 2018, the highest revenue quarter in the history of XPEL; Sequential revenue growth of 21.7% compared to first quarter of 2019
Gross margin improved to 35.3% compared to 29.7% in second quarter 2018
Earnings per share of $0.11 compared to $0.09 per share in second quarter 2018
Ryan Pape, President and Chief Executive Officer of XPEL, commented, “We continued to see strong revenue growth in the second quarter in most of our regions led by the US which posted 55.5% growth. As expected, this growth was partially offset by continued declines in China due to the timing of China sales acceleration in the first half of 2018, but we expect that impact to moderate in the third quarter. While overall revenue growth was moderate in the second quarter, we drove substantially improved gross margin through increased sales to our higher margin customers and due to our continued focus on gross margins. We are energized by the opportunities we’re seeing across the majority of our geographic markets, and believe we are well positioned for continued growth as we move through the balance of 2019.”

Expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $6.7 million or 22.1% of sales as compared to $5.1 million or 17.7% of sales in the prior year period.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure
EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus interest expense, net, plus income tax expense plus depreciation expense and amortization expense. EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. It is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to revenue or net income (loss), as applicable, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other businesses. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under GAAP.
EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of ongoing operations and other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
