  • Net loss of $4.3 million in Q2 2022 vs. $1.1 million in 2021
  • Adjusted net loss from operations of $0.6 million in Q2 2022 and Q2 2021
    • Q2 2022 included impairment of goodwill and intangible assets of $3.6 million
    • Q2 2021 included restructuring costs of $0.8 million
  • Generated operating cash flow of $0.5 million

Scott's Liquid Gold-Inc. SLGD today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter Financial Results

In the second quarter of 2022, net sales decreased primarily due to the sale of the Dryel brand and the conclusion of our agreement to distribute Batiste products, which collectively represented $1.9 million in sales in the second quarter of 2022. BIZ sales declined due to continued supply chain disruptions related to our powder booster products. Sales of our Alpha Skin Care products destined for the China market decreased, and subsequent to quarter-end we terminated our relationship with our exclusive distributor in China and commenced a new go-to-market strategy in that region.

Our net loss of $4.3 million was primarily driven by the $3.6 million impairment of goodwill and intangible assets related to our Kids N Pets and Messy Pet product lines.

Despite the decreased sales levels compared to a year ago, our adjusted net loss remained consistent between the second quarter of 2022 versus the same period in 2021 due to various improvements to our cost structure.

Management Commentary

"Despite a challenging operating environment, we remain committed to maximizing our value proposition for consumers across our entire portfolio of brands," said Tisha Pedrazzini, President of Scott's. "We have reduced overhead and continue to optimize and simplify our production and logistics networks. While inflation and supply chain shortages in select products continue to be a headwind, we continue to pursue marketing strategies that drive conversion while reducing expenditures and providing our customers the value that they have come to count on from Scott's."

Forward-looking statements convey our expectations, intentions, or forecasts about future events, circumstances, or results. All forward-looking statements, by their nature, are subject to assumptions, risks, and uncertainties, which may change over time and many of which are beyond our control. You should not rely on any forward-looking statement as a prediction or guarantee about the future. Actual future objectives, strategies, plans, prospects, performance, conditions, or results may differ materially from those set forth in any forward-looking statement.
