    Havertys Reports Earnings for Second Quarter 2020, Third Quarter Cash Dividend and Resumption of Stock Repurchase Program

    ATLANTA, Aug. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HAVERTYS (NYSE: HVT and HVT.A) reported today its operating results for the 2020 second quarter ended June 30, 2020. Financial HighlightsQuarter ended June 30, 2020 Compared to Same Period of 2019 * EPS of $0.72 per share in 2020 compared to $0.29 in 2019. * Adjusted EPS of ($0.52) in 2020 excludes $1.24 for gain on sale-leaseback. * As previously reported, sales were $110.0 million for 2020 compared with $191.9 million for 2019.Clarence H. Smith, chairman, president and CEO, said, “The second quarter was like no other in our country’s or Havertys’ history, but optimism for our future and the opportunities for growth endure. We reopened our stores in May with team members ready to serve customers eager to refresh their homes. Our written business for the last two months of the quarter was up 13.9% and written comparable store business was up 17.5% compared to the same periods in 2019. Our customers want their homes to reflect their style and be a comfortable, happy place. Our wide merchandise selection, custom options, and free design service assists them in that endeavor.We are analyzing our personnel needs and are currently challenged to accelerate staffing and increase our delivery capacity. Many of our vendor partners are also facing workforce issues as they restart their operations and seek to meet product demand. Our inventory position in certain products could be stressed during the coming months as availability lags demand.Given the sustained pace of our business since reopening and our liquidity position, the board approved important shareholder actions related to dividends and the stock repurchase program. The per share dividend for the third quarter was increased 25%, restoring it to the first quarter’s amount, and the resumption of the stock repurchase program was approved. The board will continue to evaluate returning value to stockholders given the ongoing uncertainty caused by COVID-19.    The opening of our new store in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX market is on schedule for late August and as previously planned, we closed a store in that market in July. We have also set a new opening date in the first quarter of 2021 for entering the Myrtle Beach, SC market. Our expected capital expenditures for 2020 are $9.2 million as we invest in stores and technology.The commitment of our team members and strong balance sheet give us the flexibility to shift our focus and resources to meet changing circumstances, benefit from new opportunities, and capitalize on our competitive advantages.Financial SummaryQuarter ended June 30, 2020 Compared to Same Period of 2019 * Stores were closed March 19 and 103 stores reopened on May 1 and the remaining 17 by June 20. Deliveries were halted on March 21 and restarted on May 5 with less capacity. * Gross profit margins increased 20 basis points to 54.2% from 54.0%. * SG&A expenses reflect the closure of our stores in April and the measures taken as part of our business continuity plan. • Reduction in salaries and wages of $9.9 million associated with 3,033 furloughed team members for the month of April 2020. • Severance costs of $1.7 million for approximately 35% reduction in workforce effective April 30, 2020. • Reduction in advertising spend of $3.5 million in 2020. * As previously reported, completed a sale-leaseback transaction of three warehouse facilities in May. This transaction generated $69.5 million in net proceeds and a gain of $31.6 million. * Repayment of $43.8 million of borrowings under credit facility. No amounts outstanding at June 30, 2020. * Reinstatement of salaries, 401(k) benefits, and vendor terms. * We are not providing guidance on our gross margin and SG&A expense expectations  for the remainder of 2020 at this time given the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Dividends and Stock Repurchase ProgramThe company also reported today that, on August 7, 2020, its board of directors declared a cash dividend to be paid on the outstanding shares of the company's two classes of common stock at a rate of $0.20 per share on the common stock and $0.19 per share on the Class A common stock. This restores the rates to the amounts declared prior to the store closures. The dividend is payable on Wednesday, September 9, 2020, to stockholders of record at the close of business on Monday, August 24, 2020. Havertys has paid a cash dividend in each year since 1935.The board also approved resumption of the company’s stock repurchase program which was halted in March. The balance of the current authorization for repurchases is approximately $29.7 million. Shares may be repurchased, at the company’s discretion, from time-to-time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. HAVERTY FURNITURE COMPANIES, INC.

Management believes that Adjusted EPS is a meaningful measure to share with investors because it best allows comparison of the performance for the comparable period. In addition, Adjusted EPS affords investors a view of what management considers Havertys’ earnings performance and the ability to make a more informed assessment of such earnings performance.We have calculated Adjusted EPS for the three months ended June 30, 2020 by adjusting EPS for a sale-leaseback transaction. There were no such adjustments in the comparable period of 2019.  Q2 2020  Diluted earnings per share:      Reported EPS $0.72          Adjustments:       Gain from sale-leaseback transaction: pre-tax  1.66    Tax impact of gain(1)  (0.42)    Net adjustment  1.24           Adjusted EPS $(0.52) (1) Calculated based on nature of item and rates applied.Conference Call Information The company invites interested parties to listen to the live audiocast of the conference call on August 11, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. ET at its website, havertys.com under the investor relations section.
