Comparable store sales increased 3.2% versus Q1 fiscal 2020

Completed bankruptcy process with $14 million in cash released to the Company

DALLAS, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tuesday Morning Corporation (NASDAQ: TUEM), a leading off-price retailer of home goods and décor, today announced its results for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 ended September 30, 2021.

Fred Hand, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased with our first quarter performance as we exceeded both our Sales and financial plan and successfully completed the bankruptcy process in line with our expectations. Despite the ongoing global supply chain dislocation, we believe the quality and level of our inventories has us properly positioned as we enter the holiday season.”

Mr. Hand, continued, “We are in the very early stages of our transformation, and we are focused on improving our execution of the off-price model across all areas of the organization. While this work will take time, we believe we are making the right steps forward, and we continue to appreciate the great opportunity ahead for Tuesday Morning.”

Comparability to prior periods is difficult due to the Company’s reorganization under Chapter 11, Covid-19, and the elimination of promotional activity. For comparable store sales and inventory specifically, first quarter fiscal 2022 will be compared against first quarter fiscal 2020.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results

  • As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company operated 489 stores compared to 490 stores at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021, and 707 stores at the end of the first quarter fiscal 2020.

  • Comparable store sales increased 3.2% for the 489 stores that were open in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 and the first quarter of fiscal 2020, despite store inventory ending down 42% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

  • Net sales were $176.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Net sales were $161.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

  • Gross profit was $51.0 million and gross margin was 28.8% for the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Gross profit was $51.1 million and gross margin was 31.6% for the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

  • SG&A was $60.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was 34.1% for the first quarter of fiscal 2022. In the first quarter of fiscal 2021, SG&A was $62.1 million, and as a percentage of sales SG&A was 38.4% for the period.

  • Operating loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 was $11.7 million. Operating loss was $16.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

  • The Company reported a net loss of $14.6 million, or $0.17 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $18.6 million, or $0.41 per share.

  • EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was negative $9.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2022. EBITDA was $25.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was negative $5.7 million and negative $6.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 and 2021, respectively. A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided below.

  • The Company ended the first quarter of fiscal 2022 with $4.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $22.4 million outstanding under its line of credit with availability on the line of $39.7 million compared to $61.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and $0.1 million outstanding under its line of credit in the same period of fiscal 2021.

  • We officially completed the bankruptcy process and negotiated the final claims resulting in $14 million of cash returned to the Company.

  • Inventories at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2022 were $174.1 million compared to $108.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2021.

Outlook
Given the continued headwinds from the industry wide supply chain dislocation, the Company continues to expect to report an Adjusted EBITDA loss for fiscal 2022, slightly improved from fiscal 2021.

The Company continues to expect to maintain sufficient liquidity to cover its obligations and plans for the fiscal year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Unaudited

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define EBITDA as net income or net loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA reflects further adjustments to EBITDA to eliminate the impact of certain items, including certain non-cash items and other items that we believe are not representative of our core operating performance. These measures are not presentations made in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income or loss as a measure of operating performance. In addition, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not presented as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by such adjustments. We believe it is useful for investors to see these EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA measures that management uses to evaluate our operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are included to supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and because we use these measures to monitor and evaluate the performance of our business as a supplement to GAAP measures and we believe the presentation of these non-GAAP measures enhances investors’ ability to analyze trends in our business and evaluate our performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. The non-GAAP measures presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

(1) Adjustment includes charges related to share-based compensation programs, which vary from period to period depending on volume, timing and vesting of awards. We adjust for these charges to facilitate comparisons from period to period.

(2) For the three months ended September 30, 2021, adjustments included restructuring, impairment and abandonment charges related to software impairment charges and employee retention cost. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, adjustments include restructuring, impairment and abandonment charges primarily related to our permanent store and Phoenix, Arizona distribution center closing plans as well as severance and employee retention cost. Decisions regarding store closures and the Phoenix distribution center were made in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, prior to filing the Chapter 11 Cases; however, the closure of the Phoenix distribution center was not completed until the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

(3) For the three months ended September 30, 2021, adjustments included claims related cost as well as professional and legal fees related to our reorganization. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, adjustments included a gain resulting from store lease termination under our permanent closure plan offset by professional and lease fees related to our reorganization.

(4) For the three months ended September 30, 2021, adjustments included non-cash benefit recognized related to cash settled awards in our long-term incentive plan.
