UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL DATA
The following information is not a financial measure under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition, it should not be construed as an alternative to any other measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of our operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. We present this financial information because we believe that it is helpful to some investors as a measure of our operations. We caution investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare our results with our results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies.

Net sales $118.6 $115.2 
Gross profit $37.7 $35.8 
Gross profit margin 32 %31 %
Net income $3.2 $3.4 
Diluted earnings per share $0.11 $0.12 
Adjusted EBITDA $10.9 $12.1 
Net sales increased $3.4 million or 3% to $118.6 million, the highest second quarter sales result in ZAGG's history, compared to $115.2 million. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to (1) the increase in sales of our power management products, specifically related to wireless charging accessories, and (2) increased sales of screen protection products in key wireless and retail accounts, particularly in international markets. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in sales of power cases.
Gross profit increased  $1.9 million or 5% to $37.7 million (32% of net sales) compared to $35.8 million (31% of net sales). The increase in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to (1) the mix of screen protection products, our highest margin product category, which increased to approximately 54% of net sales compared to approximately 51% of net sales, and (2) improved margins on mophie-branded products.



Operating expenses increased $2.2 million or 7% to $32.5 million (27% of net sales) compared to $30.3 million (26% of net sales). The increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to (1) increases in headcount to support additional growth of the Company, and (2) increases in advertising and marketing spend.
Net income decreased $0.2 million to $3.2 million compared to $3.4 million. Diluted earnings per share was $0.11 (on 28.7 million shares) compared to $0.12 (on 28.2 million shares).
Adjusted EBITDA decreased $1.2 million or 10% to $10.9 million compared to $12.1 million.

Net sales increased $22.4 million or 11% to $230.6 million, the highest second quarter year-to-date sales result in ZAGG's history, compared to $208.2 million. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to (1) the increase in sales of our power management products, specifically related to wireless charging accessories, and (2) increases in screen protection products in key wireless and retail accounts, particularly in international markets. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in sales of power cases.
Gross profit increased $10.9 million or 17% to $75.3 million (33% of net sales) compared to $64.4 million (31% of net sales). The increase in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to (1) the mix of screen protection products, our highest margin product category, which increased to approximately 52% of net sales compared to approximately 49% of net sales, and (2) improved margins on mophie-branded products.
Operating expenses decreased $3.5 million or 5% to $62.1 million (27% of net sales) compared to $65.6 million (32% of net sales). The decrease in operating expenses was primarily attributable to (1) a $2.0 million charge in 2017 related to the impairment of a patent that did not recur in 2018, and (2) operating expense synergies realized related to the mophie integration. These decreases in operating expense were partially offset by (1) increases in headcount to support additional growth of the Company and (2) increases in advertising and marketing spend.
Net income increased $12.9 million to $10.2 million compared to a net loss of $2.7 million. Diluted earnings per share was $0.36 (on 28.7 million shares) compared to a diluted loss per share of $0.10 (on 28.0 million shares).
Adjusted EBITDA increased $9.7 million or 66% to $24.5 million compared to $14.8 million.
2018 Business Outlook
The Company updated its annual guidance for 2018 to reflect a lower projected annual effective tax rate:
Net sales of $550 million to $570 million
Gross profit margin as a percentage of net sales in the low to mid 30's range
Adjusted EBITDA of $77 million to $80 million
Diluted earnings per share of $1.30 to $1.50
Annual effective tax rate of approximately 25% compared to approximately 27% in the last annual business outlook

About Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release includes Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure. Readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, other income (expense), transaction expenses, mophie restructuring charges, mophie employee retention bonus, consulting fee to former CEO, and impairment of intangible asset) is not a financial measure under US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition, this financial information should not be construed as an alternative to any other measure of performance determined in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, is as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. As such, it should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that it is helpful to some investors as a measure of performance. We caution readers that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions. Accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare current results with results from other reporting periods and with the financial results of other companies. We have provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the supplemental financial information attached to this press release.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains (and oral communications made by us may contain) ““forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “target,” “future,” “seek,” “likely,” “strategy,” “may,” “should,” “will” and similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we make regarding our outlook for the Company and statements that estimate or project future results of operations or the performance of the Company.
Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the following:
a. the ability to design, produce, and distribute the creative product solutions required to retain existing customers and to attract new customers;
b. building and maintaining marketing and distribution functions sufficient to gain meaningful international market share for our products;
c. the ability to respond quickly with appropriate products after the adoption and introduction of new mobile devices by major manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, and Google;
d. changes or delays in announced launch schedules for (or recalls or withdrawals of) new mobile devices by major manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, and Google;
e. the ability to successfully integrate new operations or acquisitions;
f. the impact of inconsistent quality or reliability of new product offerings;
g. the impact of lower profit margins in certain new and existing product categories, including certain mophie products;
h. the impacts of changes in economic conditions, including on customer demand;
i. managing inventory in light of constantly shifting consumer demand;
j. the failure of information systems or technology solutions or the failure to secure information system data, failure to comply with privacy laws, security breaches, or the effect on the Company from cyber-attacks, terrorist incidents, or the threat of terrorist incidents;
k. adoption of or changes in accounting policies, principles, or estimates; and
l. changes in tax laws and regulations.



Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made. New factors emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors, nor can it assess the impact of any such factor on the business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Readers should also review the risks and uncertainties listed in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other reports we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including (but not limited to) Item 1A - “Risk Factors” in the Form 10-K and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and the risks described therein from time to time. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are intended to qualify for the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

2018 Year-to-Date Results Discussion
(All comparisons are 2018 consolidated versus 2017 consolidated, unless otherwise noted)
Net sales
394447111_trendedyear-toxdatenet.jpg
Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2018, were $230.6 million, compared to net sales of $208.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $22.4 million, or approximately 11%. The $22.4 million increase in net sales was primarily attributable to (1) the increase in sales of our power management products, specifically related to wireless charging accessories, and (2) increases in screen protection products in key wireless and retail accounts, particularly in international markets. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in sales of power cases.
Gross profit
Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2018, was $75.3 million, or approximately 33% of net sales, an increase of $10.9 million or 17%, compared to gross profit of $64.4 million, or approximately 31% of net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to (1) the mix of screen protection products, our highest margin product category, which increased to approximately 52% of net sales compared to approximately 49% of net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2017, and (2) improved margins on mophie-branded products.
Operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018, were $62.1 million, compared to operating expenses of $65.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, a decrease of $3.5 million, or approximately 5%. The $3.5 million decrease was primarily attributable to (1) a $2.0 million charge in 2017 related to the impairment of a patent that did not recur in 2018, and (2) operating expense synergies realized related to the mophie integration. These decreases in operating expense were partially offset by (1) increases in headcount to support additional growth of the Company and (2) increases in advertising and marketing spend.
Net income (loss) 
As a result of the factors noted above, we reported net income of $10.2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.36, for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to a net loss of $2.7 million, or diluted loss per share of $0.10, for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information
This Supplemental Financial Information - CFO Commentary (“CFO Commentary”) includes Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure. Readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, other income (expense), transaction expenses, mophie restructuring charges, mophie employee retention bonus, consulting fee to former CEO, and impairment of intangible asset) is not a financial measure under US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition, this financial information should not be construed as an alternative to any other measure of performance determined in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, is as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. As such, it should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that it is helpful to some investors as a measure of performance. We caution readers that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions. Accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare current results with results from other reporting periods and with the financial results of other companies. We have provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the supplemental financial information attached to the press release to which this CFO Commentary is also attached.
