Management Commentary

During our fiscal third quarter 2022 we experienced another period of significant growth with record revenue and gross profit,” said Lawrence Tan, CEO of iPower. “We continued to emphasize in-house product sales, which made up approximately 82% of revenue for the quarter, while driving additional sales velocity through our largest online channel partner. Our continued strong growth and in-house product mix speaks to our superior product research, design and merchandising expertise.

“We began multiple new strategic initiatives this past quarter, including the launch of our business in Europe as well as the launch of two new joint ventures targeting the eCommerce, logistics and social media markets. In addition, we closed our first ever M&A transaction by acquiring our largest global co-engineering partner, serving to expand our production capacity and deepen our R&D capabilities.”

iPower CFO Kevin Vassily added,

Although we experienced record high freight costs in the supply chain, we managed to maintain gross margin above 40% by leveraging our diversified supplier network.

We also expanded operating margins despite adding new warehouse capacity during the quarter that is still ramping up to support higher volumes. We expect to close out the year on a strong note as we deliver on our business and operational objectives in fiscal 2022.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Total revenue in the fiscal third quarter of 2022 increased 74% to $22.8 million compared to $13.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2021. The increase was driven by greater product sales to the Company’s largest channel partner as well as strong demand for iPower’s ventilation products, commercial fans and shelving products.

Gross profit in the fiscal third quarter of 2022 increased 59% to $9.2 million compared to $5.8 million for the same quarter in fiscal 2021. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin was 40.3% compared to 43.9% in the year-ago quarter. The decrease was driven by product mix as well as higher freight costs.

Total operating expenses in the fiscal third quarter were $7.8 million compared to $5.0 million for the same period in fiscal 2021. As a percentage of revenue, operating expense improved 360 basis points to 34.3% compared to 37.9% in the year-ago quarter. The increase in operating expenses were primarily driven by additional warehouse, selling and fulfillment costs.

Net income in the fiscal third quarter of 2022 increased to $1.2 million or $0.04 per share, compared to net loss of $(0.2) million or $(0.01) per share for the same period in fiscal 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents were $2.6 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $6.7 million at June 30, 2021. The decrease was attributed to the timing of accounts receivables and is not an indication of any other business or operating trend. Long term debt as of March 31, 2022 was $13.4 million compared to $0.5 million as of June 30, 2021. This increase was also a function of timing as the Company utilizes its revolving credit facility to manage working capital.
