SPY Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

CARLSBAD, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- SPY Inc. (OTCBB: XSPY) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Total net sales increased by $0.7 million, or 8%, to $9.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared with total net sales of $9.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Total net sales increased by $2.6 million, or 10%, to $27.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared with total net sales of $24.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Sales of our core SPY® brand products increased by $1.4 million, or 17%, to $9.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared with core SPY® brand sales of $8.4 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Other sales of approximately $0.1 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2012, consisted of licensed brand products which are no longer a focus of the Company, compared with licensed product sales of $0.8 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Sales of our core SPY® brand products increased by $3.9 million, or 17%, to $27.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared with core SPY® brand sales of $23.2 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Other sales were $0.4 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2012, consisting of licensed brand products which are no longer a focus of the Company, compared with licensed product sales of $1.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

"With strong SPY® brand sales growth of 17% for 3rd quarter of 2012 over 2011, building on the huge SPY® brand growth rate of 25% for the 3rd quarter of 2011 over 2010, we are happy to have achieved our 6th consecutive quarter of year over year growth of SPY® brand products. We feel this once again demonstrates the strength of our renewed brand positioning and exciting new product collection," said Michael Marckx, President and CEO. "We are especially pleased that we were able to grow our North American snow goggle and sunglass businesses because of such a poor snow season last year that we believe caused many of our retailers to have relatively high inventory levels going into this 2012 fall snow goggle buying season."

We incurred a net loss of $1.8 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2012, which was significantly lower than the net loss of $3.0 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The reduced loss during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was primarily due to increased gross margin. Total operating expenses were slightly lower during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to 2011; with lower general and administrative expenses due to the level of legal and consulting expenses in 2011 associated with the restructure of management in 2011, offset by increased sales and marketing expenses in 2012 related to our SPY® brand products. Additionally, operating expenses in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 included $0.7 million related to certain restructuring actions which included estimated expenses associated with reducing the number of employees and changing the direct portion of our European business to a distribution model. The restructuring activities together with reducing the level of anticipated spending for marketing programs are intended to lower our future breakeven point on an operating basis.

In August 2012, we increased our borrowing capacity by increasing the maximum principal amount available to us under one of our credit facilities with Costa Brava Partnership III, L.P. ("Costa Brava") by $3.0 million (from $7.0 million to $10.0 million), thereby increasing the aggregate maximum principal amount under all credit facilities from Costa Brava from $14.0 million to $17.0 million (excluding accrued interest which is added to outstanding principal). We also extended the due dates of both of our credit facilities with Costa Brava to be April 1, 2014. In September 2012, we borrowed $1.0 million under a convertible debt arrangement with Harlingwood (Alpha), LLC ("Harlingwood"). Costa Brava and Harlingwood are significant shareholders of the company's common stock.

The results of our operations, liquidity and capital resources during and as of the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, are more fully discussed in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

SPY Inc.:
We design, market and distribute premium products for hardcore participants in action sports, motorsports, snow sports, cycling and multi-sports markets, which embrace their attendant lifestyle subcultures, crossing over into more mainstream fashion, music and entertainment markets. We believe a principal strength is our ability to create distinctive products for active people within the youthful demographics of these subcultures. Our principal products -- sunglasses, goggles and prescription frames -- are marketed under the SPY® brand. During 2011 and 2010, we also designed, manufactured and sold eyewear under the O'Neill®, Melodies by MJB® and Margaritaville® brands and in 2011, we decided to cease any new purchase orders of additional inventory for these licensed eyewear brands and do not expect any significant sales from these brands in the future.
