Superior Uniform Group Inc Reports Operating Results (10-K)

February 24, 2012 | About:

Superior Uniform Group Inc (NASDAQ:SGC) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-12-31.

Superior Unifrm has a market cap of $75 million; its shares were traded at around $12.61 with a P/E ratio of 17.4 and P/S ratio of 0.7. The dividend yield of Superior Unifrm stocks is 4.3%. Superior Unifrm had an annual average earning growth of 16.5% over the past 5 years.

Highlight of Business Operations:

As a percentage of net sales, cost of goods sold for our Remote Staffing Solutions Segment was 38.5% in 2011, and 32.8% in 2010. The percentage increase in 2011 as compared to 2010 is primarily attributed to start up costs associated with taking on new programs to support the substantial growth in this segment in 2011.

The effective income tax rate in 2011 was 26.0% and in 2010 was 33.8%. The 7.8% decrease in the effective tax rate is attributed primarily to the following: an increase in the benefit for untaxed foreign income (5.4%), a decrease in the state income tax rate (0.9%), a decrease in the accrual for uncertain tax positions (1.2%), and the impact of other items (1.4%), offset by an increase in the rate from the impact of permanent differences between book and tax basis earnings related to share-based compensation (1.1%). The increase in the benefit for untaxed foreign income is attributed to the amount of untaxed foreign income earned by the Company in 2011. During the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company did not recognize deferred income taxes on foreign income of $1,952,000 and $1,015,000, respectively, due to the fact that these amounts are considered to be reinvested indefinitely in the foreign subsidiaries. Based upon our current expectations, the benefit from untaxed foreign income in 2012 will be significantly lower unless we determine that our expected investment levels in our foreign subsidiaries will need to be accelerated to handle future growth in these markets. Therefore, we expect our effective tax rate will increase in 2012.
