The Singing Machine Company, Inc. ("Singing Machine") (NASDAQ: MICS) – the worldwide leader in consumer karaoke products, today announced its results of operations for the three-months ended March 31, 2024.

"We are pleased to report our first quarter results of operations," commented Gary Atkinson, CEO of the Singing Machine. "We have focused on three core areas of operations, which we believe will lead to overall improved profitability in the coming quarters:

1) Improved product sales mix. We are focused on selling more of our higher price-point, best-in-class karaoke products that support our music subscription model. This is expected to improve sell-through rates, reduce marketing expenses, and improve gross margins going forward.

2) Reduce fixed overhead. With the closure of our California warehouse lease and our shift to a fully outsourced 3PL model, we were able to reduce headcount, eliminate our occupancy costs in California, and switch to a more variable operating structure.

3) Strict Cost Control. We have aggressively worked to identify areas where we can reduce recurring operating expenses, particularly in the areas of IT infrastructure, headcount, and occupancy.

"With three aggressive financial initiatives, we are actively looking to optimize our immediate financial profile. We have sought to eliminate virtually all non-working capital liabilities. We have streamlined our operations. At this point, our Board of Directors is asking us to consider all strategic options and we are open to this path as a management team. We anticipate providing meaningful updates on this development in the near term," concluded Mr. Atkinson.

Results of operations for the first quarter are summarized as follows:

  • Revenues: Net sales of approximately $2.43 million for the three-months ended March 31, 2024. This represents a $1.0 million (29%) decrease from approximately $3.38 million in sales for the same period in 2023. Primary factors for the decline are as follows:
    • Holiday sell through results at our largest customer were lower in Q4 2023 than in the same period in 2022. As a result, restocking demand in Q1 2024 was negatively impacted.
    • The Company has also shifted its sales focus to dedicate more resources to its higher margin top-tier product lines. This is expected to lower overall unit sales but improve gross margins and operating margins over the next year.
  • Gross Profits: Gross profits were approximately $0.50 million for the first quarter of 2024, as compared to approximately $0.82 million for the same period in 2023. This represents a decrease of $0.3 million, or 39% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to March 31, 2023.
    • Gross margins were 20.7% for Q1 2024, as compared to 24.2% for Q1 2023.
    • Margins in Q1 2024 were negatively impacted by approximately $0.7 million in allowances for repairs under the Companies new outsourced logistics model. In prior years, repairs were handled in house at the Company’s in-house logistics hub in Ontario, CA. Since September of 2023, all repairs are now the responsibility of our contract manufacturers in China.
  • Operating Expenses: Total operating expenses were approximately $2.79 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to approximately $2.97 million for the same period in 2023.
    • Selling expenses were approximately $0.63 million in Q1 2024, as compared to approximately $0.81 million in Q1 2023.
    • General and administrative expenses were approximately $2.2 million for Q1 2024, which was flat compared to the same period in 2023.
    • General and administrative expenses are expected to decrease modestly going forward. The Company has taken steps to reduce payroll, reduce IT expenses, and reduce certain aspects of occupancy costs.
  • Net Income: The Company reported a net loss of approximately $2.37 million, which represents approximately a $0.62 million improvement year over year.
