NANJING, China, Aug. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever-Glory International Group, Inc. (the "Company" or "Ever-Glory") (NASDAQ: EVK), a retailer of branded fashion apparel and a leading global apparel supply chain solution provider, reported its financial results today for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Mr. Yihua Kang, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ever-Glory, said, "During the second quarter, we maintained our focus on developing the retail business through our multi-brand strategy and store network optimization initiative, while improving our wholesale business by upgrading customer portfolio and enhancing our account receivables."

"During the second quarter of 2020, our retail brands continue to attract new customers and retain existing customers by focusing on design, quality and value," Mr. Kang continued. "Following the remodeling or relocation of 9 stores during 2020, we operated a nationwide network of 935 stores as of June 30, 2020."

"Looking at our wholesale business, we maintained focus on upgrading customer portfolio to reduce credit risk and improve margin in light of weak micro-environment and enhancing our account receivables.

We believe the enduring strength of our wholesale business will support its long-term profitability." concluded Mr. Kang.

Mr. Jason Jiansong Wang, Chief Financial Officer of Ever-Glory, added, "The second quarter results, are coupled with our ability to increase operating leverage.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results 

Total sales for the second quarter of 2020 were $50.1 million, a decrease of 35.2% from $77.3 million in the second quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily driven by a 30.0% decrease in our retail business and a 40.8% decrease in wholesale business.

Sales for the Company's branded fashion apparel retail division decreased by 30.0% to $28.1 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $40.1 million for the second quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in the amounts of stores and same-store sales. The Company had 935 retail stores as of June 30, 2020, compared with 1,235 retail stores as of June 30, 2019.

Sales for the Company's wholesale division decreased by 40.8% to $22.0 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $37.3 million for the second quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in sales in Hong Kong, Germany, Europe-Other, Mainland China, United Kingdom and United States, partially offset by an increase in sales in Japan.

Total gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 decreased by 50.2% to $14.4 million, compared with $29.0 million for the second quarter of 2019. Total gross margin decreased to 28.8% from 37.5% for the second quarter of 2019.

Gross profit for the retail business decreased by 56.1% to $10.1 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $23.0 million for the second quarter of 2019. Gross margin was 36.2%, compared to 57.3% for the second quarter of 2019.

Gross profit for the wholesale business decreased by 27.5% to $4.4 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2019. Gross margin increased to 19.7% from 16.1% for the second quarter of 2019.

Selling expenses for the second quarter of 2020 decreased by 35.9% to $12.6 million, or 25.2% of total sales, compared with $19.7 million, or 25.5% of total sales for the second quarter of 2019. The decrease was attributable to the marketing expenses associated with the promotion of the retail brand.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2020 decreased by 18.6% to $6.0 million, or 11.9% of total sales, compared with $7.3 million, or 9.5% of total sales for the second quarter of 2019. The decrease was attributable to the decline in number of stores.

(Loss) Income from operations for the second quarter of 2020 decreased by 312.8% to ($4.2 million) compared with $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2019.
