hhgregg Announces Third Fiscal Quarter Operating Results

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- hhgregg, Inc. (NYSE: HGG) ("hhgregg" or the "Company") today announced operating results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Third Fiscal Quarter Summary

  • Net sales decreased 23.7% to $453 million compared to prior year third fiscal quarter.
  • Comparable store sales decreased 22.2% compared to the prior year third fiscal quarter.
    • Consumer electronics and distribution center consolidations were the primary drivers of the comparable store sales decrease.
  • Gross margin decreased to 22.0% compared to 26.1% in the prior year third fiscal quarter.
  • Net loss per diluted share was $2.10. Net loss per diluted share, as adjusted, was $1.70. In the prior year third fiscal quarter, net loss per diluted share was $0.97 and net loss per diluted share, as adjusted, was $0.15.

Robert Riesbeck, President and CEO, commented, "During the quarter, we were challenged by the competitive pressures in the market, specifically in consumer electronics as it is a larger mix of our business during the holidays. Additionally, the consolidation of two existing distribution centers into one new distribution center had a temporary negative impact on our sales for the quarter, in the range of $20 to $25 million. Although we are disappointed with our overall performance during the quarter, we are pleased with our investments made to shift our focus to appliances and furniture, through resetting store layouts, adding Fine Lines departments and promotions focused on our successful appliance business. Going forward, we will continue our focus on our appliance and home products categories and will continue to reposition our consumer electronics business to focus on the premium models."

Riesbeck continued, "We are correcting the issues at the new distribution center, the new assortment of home products will be fully rolled out during the fourth fiscal quarter, our consumer electronics assortment will be more premium in the future and our investments in Fine Lines departments continue to drive positive sales and profits. Through these initiatives and additional expected cost reductions, we are committed to improving our results. We are pleased with how we have managed our balance sheet to give us the liquidity position to drive these future results."

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE THIRD FISCAL QUARTER

Revenue Highlights

The Company's net sales performance for the quarter was driven primarily by a comparable store sales decline. Net sales mix and comparable store sales percentage changes by product category for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 were as follows:

The Company's comparable store sales drivers for the three months ended December 31, 2016 are summarized below:

             

Comparable Store
Sales

Average Selling Price Sales Unit Volume
Appliances (4.2)% Decrease Decrease
Consumer electronics (1) (38.6)% Decrease Decrease
Home products (2) (9.0)% Decrease Decrease
Total (22.2)%
 

(1) Primarily consists of televisions, audio, personal electronics, computers and tablets and accessories.
(2) Primarily consists of furniture and mattresses.

Gross Margin Highlights

The Company's gross profit margin, expressed as gross profit as a percentage of net sales, decreased for the three month period ended December 31, 2016 to 22.0% from 26.1% for the comparable prior year period.

  • The Company's decrease in gross profit margin for the period was due to lower gross margin rates in all categories, primarily in consumer electronics, partially offset by a favorable sales mix shift to product categories with higher gross profit margin rates.

Cost Structure Highlights

The Company continues to manage its cost structure to align with its expected sales levels and to keep the Company positioned for EBITDA improvement.

  • The decrease in advertising expense of $8.2 million in the third fiscal quarter as compared to the comparable prior year period was due to a reduction of gross advertising spend driven by continued efficiency in our advertising spend.
  • SG&A increased as a percentage of net sales to 25.6% from 19.6% for the three month comparable prior year period. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of net sales was primarily the results of the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline.
    • Wages and occupancy costs increased, as a percentage of net sales, 186 basis points and 142 basis points, respectively, in the third fiscal quarter as compared to the comparable prior year period.
      • Wages decreased $2.0 million in the third fiscal quarter compared to the prior year period primarily due to lower commissions paid as a result of decreased sales partially offset by increased wages due to the unexpected non-recurring costs relating to the distribution center consolidation.
      • Occupancy costs decreased $1.1 million in the third fiscal quarter as compared to the prior year period. This was primarily due to lower rents due to closing stores and common annual maintenance adjustments for leased properties.
    • Delivery services increased 138 basis points, or $2.5 million, in the third fiscal quarter compared to the prior year period primarily due to the increased number of deliveries in all categories due to free delivery promotions.

Asset Impairment

Due to declining sales and overall declines in profitability in the third fiscal quarter, the Company performed a detailed store impairment analysis as of December 31, 2016. As a result of this impairment analysis, property and equipment at 21 locations with a net book value of $7.2 million were reduced to estimated aggregate fair value of $0.8 million based on their projected cash flows, discounted at 15%. The Company continues to invest in its store layouts to better showcase its selections of appliances, consumer electronics and home products. For certain remodeled locations that were previously evaluated and fully impaired due to declining sales and profitability, the Company performed another evaluation of these locations as of December 31, 2016. Thirty-one stores with an aggregate net book value of $1.7 million were reduced to an estimated aggregate fair value of $0.2 million based on their projected cash flows, discounted at 15%. As a result of these analyses, the Company recorded a non-cash asset impairment charge of $7.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The fair values were determined using a probability based cash flow analysis based on management's estimates of future store-level sales, gross margins, and direct expenses and capital expenditures.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures described below provide meaningful information to assist shareholders in understanding its financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. Management believes adjusted net loss, adjusted net loss per diluted share, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are important indicators of its operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of or are unrelated to its core operating results and provide a baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses. Management makes adjustments for items such as non-cash asset impairments, consulting fees, severance costs, costs associated with its logistics optimization, store closure costs, as well as adjustments for other items that may arise during the period and have a meaningful impact on comparability.

The below information provides reconciliations from net loss, the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in U.S. ("GAAP"), to non-GAAP financial measures. The Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures, which are not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP, as information supplemental and in addition to the financial measures presented in the accompanying earnings release that are calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Such non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for, or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the GAAP financial measures presented in the earnings release. The non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying earnings release may differ from similar measures used by other companies.

EBITDA represents net loss before income tax expense, interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization. The Company has presented EBITDA because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance and believes it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in its industry. Management uses EBITDA as a measurement tool for evaluating its actual operating performance compared to budget and prior periods. EBITDA is not a measure of performance under US GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net loss prepared in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider these in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

Some of the limitations of EBITDA measures are:

  • EBITDA does not reflect the Company's cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • EBITDA does not reflect interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest payments on the Company's debt;
  • EBITDA does not reflect tax expense or the cash requirements necessary to pay for tax obligations; and
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the asset being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.

The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using EBITDA only as a supplement.
