Dorel Reports Year-End and Q4 Results

Montreal, Quebec - 3/4/2014

Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.A) today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 30, 2013. Revenue for the fourth quarter was US$633.5 million up 1.8% from US$622.6 million a year ago. Net income was US$11.0 million or US$0.34 per diluted share compared to net income of US$29.1 million or US$0.91 per diluted share in 2012. The Company had previously announced a restructuring of its Recreational/Leisure segment, with a total pre-tax charge of US$14 million to US$16 million. Included in this fourth quarter is US$13.5 million pre-tax, of which 65% is non-cash, related to this restructuring with the balance to be incurred in 2014. Excluding the impact of these restructuring charges, adjusted net income for the quarter was US$19.2 million or US$0.60 per diluted share.

Revenue for the full year was US$2.4 billion, down 2.2% from last year’s US$2.5 billion. Net income was US$57.7 million or US$1.79 per diluted share, compared to US$108.5 million or US$3.39 per diluted share a year ago. Excluding full year restructuring charges of US$15.4 million pre-tax in the Recreational/Leisure segment, adjusted net income for the year was US$67.1 million or US$2.09 per diluted share.

“2013’s performance was disappointing,” stated Dorel’s President and CEO, Martin Schwartz. “A number of the issues we faced were industry and economy related, while others were the result of less than perfect execution on our part. As announced last month, our Recreational/Leisure segment was negatively affected by top line weakness and a poorer product mix as mass merchant store traffic in general was reduced and the independent bike dealer (IBD) channel was reluctant to increase inventories going into the new year. Matters in our direct control are being addressed and there has been definite progress.”
