Newburyport, Mass., August 2, 2022. UFP Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: UFPT), an innovative designer and custom manufacturer of components, subassemblies, products, and packaging primarily for the medical market, today reported net income of $8.9 million or $1.17 per diluted common share outstanding for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to net income of $4.7 million or $0.62 per diluted common share outstanding for the same quarter in 2021. Sales for the second quarter were $94.3 million compared to sales of $50.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. Net income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022 was $13.8 million or $1.81 per diluted common share outstanding compared to $8.9 million or $1.17 per diluted common share outstanding for the same period in 2021. Sales for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022 were $165.6 million compared to sales of $99.3 million for the same period in 2021.
“I am extremely pleased with our Q2 results,” said R. Jeffrey Bailly, Chairman & CEO. “Organic growth of 17.9% plus $34.6 million in revenue from our three recent acquisitions – Contech Medical, DAS Medical, and Advant Medical – combined to yield $94.3 million in revenue, or 86% quarter-over-quarter growth. Also, operating income grew 97% to $12.2 million, and EPS grew 89% to $1.17. A key driver of this success was the resolution of supply chain issues that had delayed raw materials critical to our robotic surgery customers. With new qualified equipment in place, we were ready when the raw materials became available and quickly ramped up production to meet the pent-up demand.”
“Two offsetting events also factored into our operating results,” Bailly said. “The first was a $6.2 million gain on the sale of real estate in Georgetown, Massachusetts, which we recently vacated. The second was a $6 million increase in the accrual of future earnouts for our recent acquisitions, a reflection of their strong current and forecasted results and a solid increase in customer commitments. Each of these companies has exceeded our expectations, and the integration process with all three is going very well.”
“In addition, on July 26th we sold our Molded Fiber business and related Iowa real estate to CKF for $32 million. The objective was to sharpen our strategic focus and free up talent and capital to grow our MedTech business,” Bailly said. “Our improved operating results, combined with the cash generated from these two recent sales, will increase availability under our line of credit and position us well to fund new internal and external growth opportunities.”
