VOXX International: Weak Q1 2023 Results With Limited Future Growth Prospects
VOXX reported weak Q1 2023 results with contracted gross margin. Chip shortage and supply chain disruption severely impacting the company's performance. I assign a sell rating for VOXX on the basis of overvaluation and limited growth potential. Investment Thesis VOXX International Corporation (VOXX) Is a leading electronics manufacturer and distributor, headquartered in headquartered in Orlando, Florida. In this thesis, I will primarily analyze the quarterly results of VOXX and its future growth prospects. I will also be analyzing the impact of chip shortage and supply disruption on company's performance. Company Overview VOXX Is a leading global manufacturer and distributor of Automotive Electronics, Consumer Electronics, and Biometrics products. The company has worldwide operations with more than 30 global brands under its control. The company has segregated its business into three main segments; Automotive Electronics, Consumer Electronics, and Biometrics. The Automotive Electronics segment designs, manufactures and distributes driver distraction products, automotive security, remote start systems, location-based services, turn signal switches, automotive lighting products, heated seats, and satellite radio products. The Consumer Electronics segment offers home theater systems, cinema speakers, flat panel speakers, wireless and Bluetooth speakers, karaoke products, personal sound amplifiers, and many more Consumer Electronic products. The Biometrics segment manufactures and markets iris identification and biometric security products. The Consumer Electronics segment contributes the maximum revenue at 69% of the total revenue, followed by Automotive Electronics at 30.5%. The company relies on suppliers and manufacturers based in Pacific Rim countries, including China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea, and Taiwan, for several products and components procurement. VOXX operates in a highly competitive space with competition from some of the giants like Sony, LG, Bosch, GE, Bose, and many others. Q1 2023 Results VOXX reported a severely underperforming quarter, missing market estimates on both EPS and revenue. The company missed the market's EPS estimates by an astonishing 212% and the revenue estimates by 4%. The company failed to impress on all the parameters, including the net profit margins. The company suffered from the supply chain and chip shortage issues more than the company had anticipated. I believe Q1 2023 result highlights the fault lines in the company's supply chain and inventory management. The company failed to impress me with Q1 2023 results. SEC:10Q VOXX VOXX reported net sales in the Automotive Electronics segment at $39.6 million, a fall of 7.2% compared to $42.7 million in the prior year's quarter. As per my analysis, the reason for this fall can primarily be attributed to the chip and component shortage resulting in delayed execution of orders. The Consumer Electronics segment's net sales fell 5.5% to $88.9 million, compared to $94.1 million in Q1 2022. I believe the fall was majorly due to lower-than-expected sales of premium home theater speaker systems. The company reported a total net sales of $128.7 million, a 6% fall compared to $137 million in Q1 2022. The company reported a gross margin of 25.8%, compared to 26.8% in the prior-year quarter. The increased tariffs, shipping costs, and the component procurement cost were the main reasons behind the contracted gross margins. VOXX reported a net loss of $6.5 million compared to a net income of $2.7 million in the prior year's quarter, a drastic 340% fall. The fall was primarily due to increased operating costs and, on the other hand, lower net sales. The diluted loss per share was reported at $0.27, a fall of $0.38 compared to EPS of $.11 in Q1 2022. Pat Lavelle, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, During the Fiscal 2023 first quarter, we continued to experience supply chain issues though the biggest impact was the lack of chips which directly impacted our automotive OEM and aftermarket business. Retailer buying also slowed in March given high inventory positions which impacted sales in our Consumer Electronics segment. While these challenges will persist, we are still poised for growth and expect to have a strong second half of the year based on new Automotive programs, increased production and sales of Onkyo products, along with expanding worldwide distribution, and a host of new products coming to market. I believe the company could face the supply chain issues in the coming quarters to the same extent that they have faced in Q1 2023. The chip shortage is the most significant cause of concern for the company, restricting its ability to execute orders on time. Given the macro-economic environment and the slowdown of chip production in the south Asian countries, the chances of recovery for the company appear to be slim. As per my analysis, the gross margins of the company might remain stressed even in the coming quarters. The earnings are expected to improve in H2, but the gross margins may remain stressed throughout fiscal 2023. Key Risk Factor
