Management Discussion
  • The Company’s fiscal year ends on the Saturday nearest to December 31.  Fiscal Years, 2019 and 2018 were each 52 weeks in length. References in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations to results for “2019” or “fiscal year 2019” mean the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019, and references to results for “2018” or “fiscal year 2018” mean the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018.
  • Sales for 2019 were $251.7 million compared to $234.3 million for 2018.  Net income for 2019 was $13.3 million, or $2.12 per diluted share, compared to $14.5 million, or $2.31 per diluted share, for 2018.  Sales for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $68.7 million compared to $56.6 million for the same period in 2018.  Net income for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $5.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share compared to $4.4 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, for the comparable 2018 period.  The fourth quarter 2019 operating results include three months of Big 3 Precision sales and earnings while the full fiscal year includes four months of sales and earnings.  Big 3 Precision was acquired on August 30, 2019.
  • The dollar amount of the backlog of orders received by the Company increased as of the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019. Such backlogs were $71,200,000 at December 28, 2019, as compared to $46,888,000 at December 29, 2018.  The primary reasons for the change from 2018 to 2019 were significant backlog increases as the result of the acquisition of Big 3 Precision, stronger sales and a delay of year-end orders at Eberhard Manufacturing, and the timing of orders received from customers.  The Company anticipates continued growth in sales and earnings in fiscal 2020 primarily as a result of the acquisition of Big 3 Precision, new mirror program for Class 8 trucks being awarded to our Velvac subsidiary, and new products launches at the Eberhard Manufacturing and Illinois Lock businesses. The Company believes that as new programs and products launch, these will offset the impact from a forecasted 25-30% decline in Class 8 truck production and continued softening in the recreational vehicle market in 2020.
