UFP Technologies Announces Record Q1 2021 Results

NEWBURYPORT, Mass., May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 $4.2 million or $0.55 per diluted common share outstanding for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to net income of $3.9 million or $0.52 per diluted common share outstanding for the same quarter in 2020. Sales for the first quarter were $48.6 million compared to 2020 first quarter sales of $48.3 million.

"I am very pleased with our Q1 results for a number of reasons,” said R. Jeffrey Bailly, Chairman & CEO. “Our medical market showed notable progress versus the last two quarters of 2020. While medical sales are still below where they were before the Covid pandemic, they improved from a 19.4% decrease in Q4 2020 to an 11.5% decrease in Q1, as patients are again beginning to schedule the elective procedures that are key to our overall medical strategy. Another positive sign is that our Product Development business grew 51% vs. the prior year, which bodes well for future medical manufacturing revenue.”

“Overall, revenue for the quarter exceeded prior year results for the first time since the pandemic began,” Bailly said. “We saw especially strong growth in the Aerospace & Defense and Consumer markets, 68% and 62%, respectively, as we ramped up production on several important new programs.”

“Along with the revenue increase, our reduced cost structure generated improved bottom line results,” Bailly added. “This impact will be amplified as the pandemic diminishes and higher-gross-margin medical sales rebound. In addition, we continued to make progress on our strategic initiatives related to acquisitions, low-cost country manufacturing, and efficiency improvement, all of which leave us bullish about the future.”

Financial Highlights for Q1 2021

  • Overall sales grew 0.7% to $48.6 million.
  • Sales to the medical market declined 11.5%. Sales to the aerospace & defense and automotive markets increased 68.2% and 1.0%, respectively. All other sales (consumer, electronics, and industrial) increased 31.5%.
