Thanks, Hala and welcome, all people. Good afternoon. Thanks for becoming a member of us to debate our fourth-quarter outcomes. With me in the present day as common is Andy, who will report on the general SGC outcomes and standing of our operations, and Jake will report in the present day on BAMKO’s financials and the state of our present operations there.

Jake beforehand helped lead the third-quarter earnings name, in the event you keep in mind, when Andy was not capable of attend. As BAMKO turns into a bigger and bigger a part of our firm, we really feel that the addition of Jake to talk to BAMKO’s outcomes and reply questions is useful. As common, after we are accomplished, we’ll be open for questions. So let’s get began.

So let’s get began. I’m extraordinarily proud to have reported our outcomes this morning. Report ends in all segments and important will increase in prime and bottom-line outcomes is optimistic information for our shareholders. I’m particularly proud to have accomplished so in probably the most attempting years in our 100-year historical past to report on how we pivoted and delivered to get — introduced even larger shareholder worth than ever.

To remind you, 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of the founding of this firm. My nice grandmother Rose began this enterprise on the heels of the Spanish flu pandemic, coming into us into the world of medical attire in ’19/’20. She was a daring ladies. Effectively, solely after she began the corporate was she even given the appropriate to vote.

She was a trailblazer. I have been preceded by many daring leaders, my grandfather, David Benstock, who noticed the corporate by means of World Struggle 2 and the assist we gave to our armed troops throughout that point, and my father, who diversified the corporate significantly within the uniform sphere and took the corporate public in 1968. Our legacy of 100 years is phenomenal and to have ended our 100 years within the midst of a pandemic with the extent of success we’ve achieved offers us sure bragging rights. I largely do not wish to brag about our 4,600 associates who labored tougher and smarter with so little readability as to what was going to occur this previous 12 months.

They fought for our survival. And never solely did they succeed, however they exceeded past all of our expectations. Our work-from-home answer was deployed in mid-March throughout all nations that we function in. None of us knew at that time what the longer term would maintain nor with the contingency plans we’ve put in place to promote PPE and to intensify our deal with important clients would yield when it comes to our stage of success.

As nations shut down, we benefited significantly by our long-term technique of redundant manufacturing, transferring manufacturing around the globe like chess items to make sure continuity of provide. In step with our legacy, we additionally made report donations final 12 months, thousands and thousands of {dollars} in money donations and important merchandise to healthcare methods. Our donations helped dress over 100,000 caregivers. The total worth of our donations effectively exceeded $5 million.

Charity is in our DNA. It at all times has been going again to our formation in 1920. Our enterprise received began as an lively charity when my nice grandmother Rose helped three fellow immigrants get our enterprise began as Superior Surgical. We’re lucky to be positioned in the present day with larger power and with extra goal than ever earlier than.

Our revenues exceeded $0.5 billion in gross sales this 12 months. If you happen to look again to 2010, when our income was $105 million, we managed to extend market share throughout and following the recession and a subsequent cotton disaster. Right here we’re 10 years later, greater than 5 instances the income we had been capable of obtain in 2010. Our 2020 earnings elevated over 10 fold over that very same time period.

Probably the most superb half about 2020 was that not solely did we supply and promote over $131 million of PPE, however even with out PPE, each section of our enterprise hit new income information. 2020 was not with out its challenges. There was a large contraction within the promotional merchandise business and within the nonessential aspect of the uniform business, however we’ve deliberately positioned our firm to resist most any uncertainty for the longer term. We at all times wish to say to our traders that we’re considerably recession-proof and that we’re so effectively diversified throughout so many services and products.

However now we all know we’re pandemic-proof too. In saying that, the bragging stops, in fact. My coronary heart goes out to the thousands and thousands of households who’ve misplaced family members throughout this pandemic. My gratitude extends to all of the caregivers, first responders, lecturers and different important employees, together with our personal very owned warehouse and manufacturing associates past something I may presumably put into phrases.

This pandemic is not over, however our future is stable with or with out future disaster gross sales. Round this time final 12 months, we mentioned our profitable transformation to raise our innovation, automation, gross sales methods and management alignment for the following strategic part of our progress. We proceed on that very same path in 2021. We completed an incredible deal throughout 2020, however the unprecedented progress we noticed would require extra investments in human capital.

As we’ve leveraged our investments prior to now and our shared sources infrastructure to manage prices and ship record-setting outcomes, we are going to proceed to take action sooner or later. Our annual internet gross sales had been up by a formidable 40% to over $526 million, together with a outstanding 240% enhance in internet revenue to $41 million. This really excellent outcomes, additional highlighting our resilience and power. Whereas the pivot to PPE sourcing was key to our progress in internet gross sales and internet revenue, we must always emphasize once more that we achieved notable natural progress in internet gross sales in all three of our enterprise segments even with out the impression of gross sales from PPE.

Andy will, in fact, present extra colour to that. As we reported in third quarter, we’re nonetheless seeing continued demand for PPE in our healthcare and worker ID retail enterprise sectors, together with reusable protecting attire, akin to barrier coats and isolation robes in addition to scrub attire. Earlier within the 12 months, we bolstered our inventories in a lot of our legacy PPE in addition to scrub attire, which has supported a lot of our natural progress this 12 months, and we consider the vast majority of which might be sustainable for the long run. Our trend seal healthcare and CID scrub merchandise noticed sizable will increase in gross sales throughout our conventional buyer base.

At CID, specifically, we additionally discovered new channels with largely e-commerce retailers to maneuver the needle considerably with respect to income and working margins. We have spoken beforehand about our WonderWink INDY line for trend seal healthcare designed by CID. This new revolutionary trend assortment was primarily spoken for earlier than even arriving in our warehouses. One in every of our key laundry distributor clients put out a press launch on the finish of December saying the addition of the INDY-branded scrub line as a part of their managed uniform service providing.

We’re excited to proceed our long-standing partnership with them and others who’ve come ahead to assist the long-term success of the primary of its variety addition to our scrub providing in a few years. We count on more and more large acceptance for this distinctive trend scrub and anticipate that over a three-year interval, it’ll ramp as much as signify larger than excessive seven figures in annual gross sales. We proceed to work on our worldwide advertising and marketing technique by means of CID. As we mentioned final quarter, we’re presently promoting healthcare attire into European markets at modest ranges.

As a part of our long-term technique, we’ve contracted with a warehouse in Poland to start distributing our merchandise and to be nearer to our buyer base. It will permit us to construct our footprint additional throughout these markets. HPI, our worker ID enterprise, has a diversified buyer base, together with COVID important and nonessential companies. Income from the smaller nonessential sectors inside our HPI buyer base was down by nearly 30%.

This portion of our worker ID enterprise consists of the journey, eating and leisure industries. These gross sales declines had been largely offset by strong gross sales to important retailers together with pharmacies, grocery chains and massive field retailers. Whereas we’re seeing lighter exercise than common on the RFP aspect of HPI’s enterprise, we do count on the resumption of upper exercise later within the 12 months because the surroundings stabilizes to a brand new regular. As institutions enhance their capability and rent extra individuals, the necessity for uniforms and rebranding will definitely present a elevate going ahead.

The important aspect of our enterprise nonetheless stays sturdy and may assist mitigate most, if not all, the downturn that we’ve or will expertise on the nonessential aspect of our enterprise. Demand for PPE nonetheless continues. The problem is commonly not how a lot we will promote however how we will discover adequate and dependable provide. The availability chain has been extraordinarily tight on many merchandise.

We’re working with our groups throughout the globe day and night time to supply legit merchandise that meet the inflexible specs of this market. Whereas lots of our clients, together with what we name nonlegacy PPE product as a part of their regular Uniform shipments or as a part of their worker start-up kits, there may be nonetheless a considerable quantity of enterprise alternatives to be received throughout all of the sectors of PPE. In our promotional merchandise section, which Jake will report on additional, the BAMKO group turned a colossal disaster into an incredible alternative by appropriately anticipating early within the pandemic that PPE merchandise had been going to be in excessive demand and that clients would use these merchandise not solely to guard their staff and their clients, but in addition to assist maintain their model id. By way of our unmatched sourcing and inventive experience, the group exceeded expectations by delivering very worthwhile gross sales, eclipsing $200 million, fairly a milestone.

The Workplace Gurus returned to pre-pandemic double-digit progress with a 31% enhance within the fourth quarter and an 18% enhance for the 12 months. I am unable to say sufficient optimistic issues about our group’s well timed pivot to work-from-home answer that can allow us to proceed to assist all of our clients within the midst of an ever-changing authorities lockdown mandates. We onboarded a number of new shoppers through the pandemic, and grew our agent head rely by over 300 individuals to almost 1,700 brokers. We’re thought-about by lots of our clients who use different name facilities apart from ours to beat their pandemic proof answer.

We’re excited in regards to the alternative that make money working from home means to us when it comes to modest investments we might want to make within the enterprise and our means to scale its progress even additional. Headwinds on the availability chain aspect impacted our uniforms and promotional merchandise companies with logistic value surging as we labored to serve our clients’ elevated calls for. This has occurred throughout all, together with home trucking, abroad air shipments and ocean container shipments. We noticed pricing pressures, each from a logistics standpoint and from a material enhance value in addition to some weak point within the greenback.

Different logistic challenges embody the well-publicized backup of West Coast ports, the dearth of availability of transport containers and shortage of truckers to maneuver freight and this has precipitated extreme logistic challenges in addition to greater than doubling of our prices related to bringing product into our warehouses. On account of these many pressures, we applied a large value enhance that’s largely efficient this quarter. I’ll now flip the decision over to Jake to debate BAMKO’s outcomes after which come again to you on the shut.

Jake HimelsteinChief Working Officer and Chief Monetary Officer, Promotional Merchandise

Thanks, Michael and good afternoon, everybody. I am ecstatic with the outcomes our group at BAMKO has delivered throughout such a difficult 12 months.

Our backlog at year-end was $45.5 million, which consisted of $5.6 million in PPE and $39.9 million in nonPPE gross sales. Though whole backlog determine is barely decrease than prior quarters, the nonPPE backlog continues to extend, exhibiting a resurgence in promotional product spend. It is also the most important year-end backlog in BAMKO’s historical past.

2021 brings with it each challenges and alternatives concerning the promotional merchandise market. A major problem is the timing of a return to large-scale conferences and occasions, one thing we aren’t anticipating to happen till not less than the second half of the 12 months. Luckily, BAMKO’s enterprise is considerably much less event-based than the business as a complete. And BAMKO’s continued sturdy efficiency has it effectively positioned to satisfy renewed demand as these occasions return.

A diversified portfolio of shoppers and business sectors served by BAMKO consists of quite a few well-performing segments past the gig financial system sector. These embody different areas of power akin to house gifting, buyer retention applications, buyer acquisition, reacquisition applications, digital convention items and reward with buy objects for customers.

Our acquisition of Items By Design instantly positions BAMKO to develop into an business chief in company awards, incentives and recognition applications, which we view as an vital and quickly rising market section.

OK. CID has been promoting internationally even earlier than we bought them in 2018 on a really small scale, largely in South America. Slightly little bit of enterprise in Europe and somewhat little bit of enterprise in Australia. That has elevated as time has gone on, once more, little or no effort or little or no advertising and marketing on our half.

Although there’s demand in all of these markets for trend scrub merchandise. I feel scrub perhaps they weren’t at all times ubiquitous, however healthcare employees around the globe, that’s what they’re sporting in the present day, they usually need trend scrubs. Very acutely aware of that healthcare employees are in brief provide everywhere in the world. And customarily, healthcare employees make greater than their friends and may afford trend scrubs.

And even when hospital provide scrubs, oftentimes, nurses are taking them house relying on the nation to launder them. So it is actually a combination. It’s extremely completely different by nation. What we discover is there is a sure consistency throughout Europe.

And we have been promoting in some CID WonderWink product almost into each nation in Europe with a single retailer right here or a dealer there, generally with a center particular person in between us. However the factor that has prevented us from actually rising that dynamic is having product on the bottom in Europe. After getting product on the bottom in Europe, you’ll be able to ship throughout most borders very, very freely. There is not any duties between these borders.

When you may have merchandise sitting in Texas, and you have to ship it to Europe or you have to ship to South America, you are confronted with how do you value that, you have already paid obligation on america. In fact, you will get obligation drawbacks and get a few of that obligation again everytime you’re transport it to a different nation, they usually’re paying duties, logistics prices are very costly for smaller containers to ship to these nations. So we did resolve that we had been going to place the logical place can be a third-party location in Poland. It is central to the nations that we wish to promote.

It is develop into a gateway for distribution to different components. For us, it is — I might say it is past the experimental stage. It is — we’re making a robust dedication to Europe. We now have even final 12 months, had consultants working for us to assist us make sure that we’re making the appropriate strikes in Europe, and these are individuals who have helped different firms within the area, develop their profile in Europe.

And we simply assume that the WonderWink product is — the materials are nice, the styling is fabulous. It is nothing that makes it a uniquely American product. It is a common product that may be worn by all caregivers around the globe. And so we’re doing it as a result of the product’s good and and since we will and why ought to we go away that market to our opponents.

A few of our opponents have already entered Europe in an enormous means lengthy earlier than we did. And we count on to have the ability to take market share from them in addition to a number of the native individuals producing in these nations.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. Yeah, that is useful. Do you may have the — your opponents who’ve already moved into Europe, have they got that very same sort of differentiation when it comes to the style, match, consolation, and so on., that the CID merchandise carry? Or do you sort of really feel like you may have some differentiation or first-mover benefit from that perspective?

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

No. I feel we had — I feel they’ve the identical benefit that we’ve. I imply these are the identical individuals we compete with in america. A lot of them are nice firms, they do a superb job.

We’re continually attempting to outdo one another from a product standpoint. Apart from the INDY line, which is completely distinctive, apart from a number of the channels we would sell-through that they do not, our product definitely is not the identical. We do every little thing we will to see that our product is exclusive or else why would any person purchase it in a store or on-line. So I feel we’re — it is a stage enjoying subject.

I do not assume they’ve a terrific benefit over us besides getting there first. And fairly frankly, a few of these firms have been in enterprise 20 years and began in america first, too. We — CID has took a number of market share from them in america. We intend to do the identical factor in Europe.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. Nice. And you then referenced your new partnership or — sure. I assume it is the WonderWink partnership with SanMar Company.

It looks as if it is a channel you are enthusiastic about. So are you able to simply speak somewhat bit extra about that? And are there comparable sorts of alternatives within the pipeline that you simply see?

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

There are — we’re continually working to develop into as omnichannel as we will whereas persevering with to assist our retail base of consumers. And so SanMar was an enormous win for us. We have been engaged on that for a very long time in collaboration with them, ensuring we’ve the appropriate merchandise. So they might take huge stock positions to have the ability to service what is basically your complete United States and 21,000 plus opponents.

And people opponents, you perceive, are largely promotional product firms who would possibly promote into medical doctors’ practices and dental practices and so forth. That truly compete with BAMKO apparently. The strains are getting fairly blurred between all these firms when it comes to who’s the provider and who’s not. However SanMar might be the — is essentially the most extremely regarded buyer servicing that business with attire and have a really multi-inch thick catalog that primarily most likely 20 — most likely 100,000 salespeople in america walk-in to their clients with to point out them completely different attire.

And now there will be some pages allotted to wash attire in our attire. In order that they made the announcement to their gross sales power again in December. They did a press launch final month. We’re very enthusiastic about it.

It opens up a complete new world for us. We now have a multiyear commitments from them. We predict we’ll — it will flip into some — and fairly frankly, we consider it is additive to what we’re already doing. We consider ultimately, will probably be — it’ll assist all of the efforts that we’re placing into our advertising and marketing, and we’ll assist assist them as effectively.

However no, it is an thrilling channel for us. They usually’re good enterprise individuals, they usually made the appropriate selection, selecting us to be their accomplice.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. Unbelievable. I am simply attempting to place some items collectively right here. So it is fascinating to speak about SanMarch after which the worldwide growth for CID.

After which as you talked about, the WonderWink transferring into the laundry channel. I noticed the announcement that you simply referenced there, it is public data. UniFirst had that press launch out about their partnership with WonderWink. However frankly, I am excited by speaking about all this or extra about this as a result of I had somewhat little bit of pushback from traders put up your final name, considering that, that 12% natural progress goal you place on the market for Uniform appeared aggressive, but it surely feels like some of these alternatives or new channel companions, and so on., that you simply’re including are — actually are what — is what is going on to sort of construct as much as that means to develop 12%.

So any extra colour on that? Or the way you sort of construct as much as that focused progress price that you simply put on the market?

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

Certain. Effectively, we felt fairly assured in a number of these alternatives on the final earnings name and our progress projections, took that under consideration, though the bulletins hadn’t been made but. So sure, this has been taken under consideration in our final progress projections, each of these alternatives in addition to our bigger entrée into the remainder of the world, notably Europe, we’re very enthusiastic about it. I hope we will come to future earnings calls giving higher steerage.

However for that, we really feel very snug with the steerage we have given. And we are usually conservative in nature. Individuals know that about us. We would not put out a 12% progress quantity until we felt fairly assured about it.

I feel you’ll be able to see that we have normally exceeded expectations of the market over the previous few years. So we hope to proceed to do this.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

Nice. That is useful. You probably did point out briefly there are some lighter RFP exercise on the HPI aspect of the uniform enterprise. Are you able to simply make clear, was that for the nonessential buyer set or was that simply sort of throughout the board? And perhaps somewhat extra of what is going on on there? I do know you mentioned you anticipated it to select up.

However simply any extra colour on that.

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

Certain. The important aspect of the enterprise is so busy proper now, they don’t seem to be worrying. They’re simply shopping for uniforms, and we have seen some extension of some contracts. Very pleased to get these extensions reasonably than going to every kind of redesigns proper now.

And we’re not seeing the important aspect doing an incredible RFP exercise proper now. I feel they’re centered on completely different facets of the enterprise of attempting to service their clients and attempting to reconfirm themselves, whether or not it is — even on the nonessential aspect, I imply, what we see in fast service eating places, as an example, is that they’re all attempting to determine the best way to make their takeout extra environment friendly and the best way to make their whenever you pull as much as a window, drive-in extra environment friendly and the best way to scale their enterprise to allow them to make higher use of the massive area they’ve that no one is consuming inside. So it is sort of a humorous time. We’re simply not seeing the RFP exercise.

It is not on the market. I am not saying it is not on the market in any respect. It is simply on the market to a a lot lesser diploma. I feel a number of firms, particularly on the nonessential aspect, Kevin, are board remains to be anxious about survival, have been anxious about survival, grateful for what they received in PPP cash, however nonetheless attempting to determine what they’ll be when that is throughout.

And first of thoughts isn’t — entrance of thoughts isn’t uniforms. It is positive. We now have uniform applications with them. We’ll doubtless get extensions of contracts past the preliminary intervals that we’re in or the — some — in some instances, we’re within the 10th extension of some contracts.

However — and that is positive with us. I might reasonably have clients recommit for a couple of extra years that we’re already doing enterprise with, then chase clients who we cannot see any enterprise for the following 12 months and a half or two years within the regular cycle. So we do count on that as extra individuals get vaccinated, as extra persons are allowed to return again to companies, to eating places and other people begin purchasing once more, in malls and so forth, issues get somewhat bit again to regular, perhaps by no means what they had been, however extra again to regular, that we are going to see RFP exercise. We have seen, after we’ve come out of recession on this nation prior to now, an unimaginable elevate in advertising and marketing {dollars} spent, and that advantages BAMKO for certain.

They usually’ve seen the identical factor. And that has benefited us prior to now. We got here out of the recession in 2009, and I imply, you would see our numbers. I spoke to them truly in my script right here in the present day.

Lots of people are spending advertising and marketing {dollars}. And one of many issues they wished to do was rebrand. And so we count on after we come out of this, will probably be fairly strong, perhaps extra strong than ever. We have by no means — even a recession has by no means impacted a rustic the best way this pandemic has.

So we count on individuals to wish to give their staff a elevate, need their clients to view them otherwise to attempt to rebrand themselves. All of it matches collectively. However it’s considerably delayed. I am not anxious about it as a result of so long as the pandemic continues, even at a diminishing stage, we’ll proceed to promote the important companies what they want and a modicum of PPE as effectively.

So we — nothing’s modified with respect to our steerage that we gave with our Uniform enterprise for this 12 months and our general enterprise for this 12 months.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. Unbelievable. I assume, I wished to maneuver on to BAMKO and also you spoke in regards to the 11% progress in conventional promo merchandise in 2020 whereas the business is down 25% to 30%. You talked about BAMKO being much less event-based, however perhaps extra colour on what’s permitting you to outperform the business so considerably? Is it simply your — the general monetary power, your means to customise provide chain? I assume it’d most likely be somewhat little bit of every little thing, however simply perhaps converse to that extra when it comes to conventional promo merchandise and the general power there?

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

I will let Jake reply. Jake, you are on the decision, and Jake runs our gross sales and operations and CFO of BAMKO. He is the Jake of all trades. So go forward, Jake.

Jake HimelsteinChief Working Officer and Chief Monetary Officer, Promotional Merchandise

And good speaking to you once more, Kevin. So sure, I feel whenever you have a look at our business within the promotional merchandise section, there’s 21,000 firms, lots of that are actually small and wrestle by means of one thing like COVID. I discussed it earlier than, down 30% in 2020 over the prior 12 months. I imply the reality is we’re capable of capitalize on alternatives that our opponents cannot do.

We pivot faster, we’re diversified in our provide base. And a number of our opponents have been held up by PPP loans, some minor PPE gross sales. When these dry up, they might not be round, and we’re there to select up the items. And we have been very profitable.

I imply 80% of the PPE we bought was to noncustomers. And of that, we transformed 30% of them to promo clients. We proceed to work with these clients to seek out extra alternatives to penetrate and get their promotional product enterprise. So we’re seeing the power to do this.

And all of it stems from being agile, having boots on the bottom, forward-thinking and being forward of the remainder of the business. And we’re actually like the place we’re positioned going ahead right here for 2021 and past.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

Nice. Additionally, as regards to BAMKO, you spoke notably about worker gifting being a profit to progress within the fourth quarter, and also you made the Items By Design acquisition. So what is the pattern you are seeing there? What’s enticing about that exact area of interest that you simply noticed progress in and that you simply’re investing in by means of this current acquisition?

Jake HimelsteinChief Working Officer and Chief Monetary Officer, Promotional Merchandise

Yeah. We have at all times accomplished worker gifting all through our historical past of BAMKO. We have at all times accomplished at-home gifting or in-office gifting, acquisition applications for patrons. It simply wasn’t a core focus, and it was one thing we did when clients would ask, hey, make us an worker retention program that speaks to our worker base.

We do it however this makes us considerably stronger on the worker and buyer engagement aspect of the enterprise. Reward by Design works with an enormous buyer base of blue-chip firms that we did not have entry to earlier than and the power to promote into these clients and sort of know the converse and be capable to stroll the stroll and speak to speak about worker gifting and buyer engagement applications. And we do not count on this to go away rapidly, proper? None of us actually know what occurs with the work-at-home mannequin going ahead. However what we do know is {that a} substantial portion of staff are going to proceed to work from home put up pandemic.

And we wish to be there to capitalize on that. And we’ve shipped extra at-home or direct-to-home items most likely within the month of December than we did in all of 2019 mixed. It is phenomenal, the necessity and want for us to attach with staff. And as Michael mentioned, popping out of pandemic, popping out of a recession, they’ll wish to do this an increasing number of.

They received to maintain staff. They wish to hook up with them. They wish to preserve their individuals engaged.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

Sure. That is actually fascinating. OK. Nice.

OK. So that you talked about M&A exercise is strong. You talked about that the current shelf registration. So are you seeing bigger acquisition alternatives within the pipeline that may necessitate maybe elevating capital? Or is that this to be ready on all fronts? What is the dimension of the alternatives you are seeing within the pipeline? I assume I am placing lots in there, however I simply wish to get extra perspective on the strong nature of the M&A pipeline and the dimensions of candidates you are seeing?

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

There are a number of firms on the market. There’s a number of firms on the market in all markets. Through the pandemic, we have had an opportunity to take a look at many. And fairly frankly, a few of them had been in such bother that it actually wasn’t fascinating to us.

A few of them the one revenue they made or the one means they had been capable of preserve their enterprise even open to promote it was as a result of they acquired PPP cash. There’s all sizes on the market, Kevin. I might say starting from most likely — we do not look that low. We have a tendency to attract sort of a line within the sand at about $10 million.

Even that is somewhat bit small for us. Except it brings us one thing — from a standpoint of one thing it does that we do not presently do or has actually nice those who we will carry into our group to assist develop your complete enterprise, all the best way as much as $100 million. There aren’t that many $100 million promo firms. Fairly frankly, there aren’t that many $100 million uniform firms, however there are a couple of, and a few of them have gotten in bother.

A few of them are simply fed up. Simply — this pandemic has taken a toll on individuals. We’re fortunate. We have been energized, and we have moved ahead.

And the group has accomplished an unimaginable job. In all probability by no means labored tougher. It is by no means had extra enjoyable doing it. And through the time when it was — from a household standpoint, it is about devastating for everyone.

So it is — we predict we’re in a novel place with all of our methods in place now with most of our — effectively, all of our integration is finished, we’re increasing our warehouses, however our integrations are accomplished, to be an incredible platform in every of our companies, that features the decision middle enterprise. No, name middle enterprise is a reasonably small enterprise to start with. So perhaps their threshold is one thing beneath $10 million. However we’ve checked out companies, and we are going to proceed to take a look at companies that we really feel add worth or get us into an area that we’re not presently in.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. That is useful. That is extra of a numbers query right here. However on the final name, you had talked about that perhaps capex can be somewhat decrease than you thought in 2020, round $Eight million, and also you got here in near that $12 million mark.

So did you simply have some catch-up there or timing-wise, you are capable of speed up issues somewhat extra. I do know you are searching for a ramp-up subsequent 12 months, however perhaps simply speak somewhat bit extra about capex this 12 months and subsequent?

Andy DemottChief Working Officer

Yeah. Kevin, I imply, there have been a few issues that we ended up including in late within the 12 months. Michael talked about the third facility in Haiti. We’re preparing on that on what primarily is a pay as you go lease however does run by means of capital expenditures.

We additionally invested within the robotics in Dallas, which, primarily based on the very fast payback we get off of that, it was of the undertaking that we purchased to us and made sense so as to add in. And earlier within the 12 months, we actually did take a really cautious perspective on capex and slowed issues down somewhat bit, however that was all actually pre — our very profitable pivot to PPE, and we actually noticed it as a possibility to get a head begin on some issues that can have very good paybacks for us going ahead.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. Nice. And lastly, I simply wished to ask about, Michael, you had been speaking a bit about — on the finish there about simply bringing in new administration and expertise as you actually scale up right here and the enterprise is de facto ramping up. What is the surroundings like for locating good administration and expertise? I do know we’re nonetheless in a labor market recession, however are you seeing wholesome pipeline from that perspective as effectively as a result of I do know that is an vital facet of the enterprise that is perhaps not talked about as a lot.

So any ideas there can be useful.

Michael BenstockChief Government Officer

Yup. We’re already — we’re doubling, greater than doubling our recruiting division. Sure, I imply, the best factor is it is a recruiting wealthy surroundings in the present day as a result of a number of the paradigms of yesterday that any person needed to dwell close to the workplace as a result of they had been going to return within the workplace each single day are gone. We all know that we will proceed to make money working from home.

We all know that — we do need individuals in our workplaces, however they do not should be there day-after-day. And a few individuals do not should be there in any respect. The place groups have to collaborate like design and product improvement or advertising and marketing and design, they want a while collectively within the workplace, however they do not want all their time collectively within the workplace. That opens up a reasonably wealthy goal surroundings for us of people that, initially, our status on BAMKO and in our uniform enterprise may be very, very sturdy.

So if any person comes out of the promotional enterprise or comes out of the uniform enterprise, even out of the attire enterprise and even out of the availability aspect of the promotional enterprise with all of the completely different suppliers which might be — that offer to firms like BAMKO, distributors like BAMKO, these are nice candidates for us. If I am searching for any person in undertaking administration, they do not need to be in Seminole, Florida or Coppell, Texas. They are often wherever. They are often wherever within the U.S.

and fairly frankly, a number of them might be wherever on the earth. BAMKO has confirmed that mannequin through the years with their India and China workplace as we’ve it in El Salvador. What we wish is the most effective expertise we will discover wherever to work for us. And fairly frankly, a number of these individuals do not have the alternatives domestically wherever they might dwell can be very pleased to return work for us.

So we predict it is a target-rich surroundings. There’s lots of people are employed proper now. Nice individuals normally aren’t unemployed very lengthy. So we’ll need to exit and actively recruit nice individuals.

However they’re on the market. And we predict we have an terrible lot to promote after we’re pitching them on our firm.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK, thanks and congratulations on the nice ends in 2020 in such a troublesome surroundings and in addition congratulations in your 100 years in enterprise.

Andy DemottChief Working Officer

Yeah. Kevin, I do wish to make clear one factor, simply so all people understands. When Michael talked about our steerage and nothing having modified, within the third quarter, the steerage we had given was that we count on in 2021 to be about $450 million. Based mostly on what we had in PPE orders that we already knew of at that time, we actually had been giving the bottom enterprise.

As Michael talked about earlier, we’re persevering with to ebook pretty important PPE enterprise as we go ahead. And when he mentioned nothing had modified, I did wish to make clear the half about that with the acquisition of Items By Design, that was not one thing that we had contemplated into that $450 million quantity. So that may be additive to that quantity. However then going ahead, it will be throughout the natural progress comparable vary to what we have throughout the remainder of the promo enterprise.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. So the bottom remains to be $450 million and simply layering on Items By Design. How sizable is that roughly?

Andy DemottChief Working Officer

It is about $1.5 million run price per thirty days.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK. OK. And we’re nonetheless utilizing the $450 million as the ground plus the Items By Design.

Andy DemottChief Working Officer

Plus Items By Design plus extra PPE as we ebook it. I imply we did — we solely — we’re considering what we knew about at that time. And so we actually cannot gauge how lengthy the pandemic and the demand for that disaster PPE goes to final. So we wished to present a sensible foundation with out that, and that is all additive to it.

Kevin SteinkeBarrington Analysis — Analyst

OK, received it. All proper. Thanks.

Andy DemottChief Working Officer

OK. Thanks very a lot. All proper.
