Vera Bradley Announces Fiscal Third Quarter 2019 Results

/EIN News/ -- Third quarter net income totaled $4.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share

Third quarter net revenues totaled $97.7 million

Continued improvement in full-price selling and reduced clearance drove meaningful gross profit margin increase in the third quarter

Third quarter ended with a strong cash and investment position of $131.6 million, no debt, and year-over-year inventories down 3.8% to $96.3 million

Management narrows annual diluted EPS guidance range to $0.57 to $0.60

FORT WAYNE, Ind., Dec. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vera Bradley, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRA) (“Vera Bradley” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the fiscal third quarter and nine months ended November 3, 2018. 

Comments on Performance and Looking Ahead

Robert Wallstrom, Chief Executive Officer, noted, “During the quarter, we continued to successfully execute against our Vision 20/20 strategy, our comprehensive plan to strengthen our brand and financial health by substantially lowering clearance sales and reducing our expense structure.  We lowered our clearance selling by over 70%, and our full-price business once again grew by double digits over last year.  As a result, we are especially pleased with our year-over-year third quarter gross margin rate improvement. 

“Third quarter earnings were modestly below our expectations, primarily due to revenues at the low end of our guidance and a gross margin rate that was slightly below our guidance.  Higher-than-expected shipping costs offset some of our margin expansion, which brought our overall margin rate modestly under guidance.  SG&A expenses were in line with expectations.”

Wallstrom continued, “As we dramatically adjusted the level of clearance on verabradley.com and in our full-line stores, we expected that sales performance this year could be a bit inconsistent.  While softer than expected October sales affected third quarter performance, we were pleased to see strong performance over Black Friday weekend and on Cyber Monday, particularly as we focused more on full-price selling and less on clearance.  Customers responded to our simplified and more impactful promotional messaging and our focus on key items over the holiday weekend.”

Wallstrom added, “We have made excellent progress on Vision 20/20 over the last several quarters.  During the last nine months, we have reduced clearance activity on verabradley.com and in our full-line stores by over 70% and increased our full-price selling in these channels by approximately 20%.  Product innovation and newness are driving our brand appeal, and we have meaningfully reduced SG&A expenses through diligent expense management.  We have also increased our year-over-year cash and investment balances by over $20 million to $131.6 million.” 

“By executing Vision 20/20, our business and brand are becoming healthier, and our customers are responding.  We are creating a solid foundation and are excited about our growth prospects,” Wallstrom concluded. 

Summary of Financial Performance for the Third Quarter

Net revenues totaled $97.7 million for the current year third quarter ended November 3, 2018, compared to $114.1 million in the prior year third quarter ended October 28, 2017.  Revenues were at the low end of the Company’s guidance range of $98 million to $103 million. 

For the current year third quarter, the Company posted net income of $4.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. 

For the prior year third quarter, the Company posted net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share.  These results included $7.9 million of after-tax charges comprised of:

  • Store impairment charges of $3.7 million;
  • Severance charges of $1.8 million;
  • Strategic plan consulting fees of $1.5 million; and
  • Other charges of $0.9 million, including inventory adjustments related to discontinued product categories and a net lease termination charge.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding these charges, the Company’s net income totaled $8.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share.

Summary of Financial Performance for the Nine Months

Net revenues totaled $297.9 million for the current year nine months ended November 3, 2018, compared to $322.6 million in the prior year nine-month period ended October 28, 2017.

For the current year nine months, the Company posted net income of $12.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share. 

For the prior year nine months, the Company posted a net loss of ($1.5) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share.  These results included $11.2 million of after-tax charges comprised of:

  • Store impairment charges of $3.7 million;
  • Severance charges of $3.4 million;
  • Strategic plan consulting fees of $2.9 million; and
  • Other charges of $1.2 million, including inventory adjustments related to discontinued product categories and net lease termination charges.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding these charges, the Company’s net income totaled $9.7 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the nine months.  Current year diluted earnings per share increased 25.9% over last year’s non-GAAP diluted earnings per share.

Third Quarter Details

The non-GAAP prior year third quarter income statement numbers referenced below exclude the previously disclosed store impairment, severance, consulting, and other charges.

Current year third quarter Direct segment revenues totaled $73.5 million, an 11.7% decrease from $83.2 million in the prior year third quarter.  As previously disclosed, Direct segment revenues reflect the movement of approximately $6 million to the second quarter this year from the third quarter last year, related to the timing of promotional events (negatively affecting current year third quarter revenues).  Comparable sales (including e-commerce and the event shift) decreased 16.5% for the quarter (reflecting a 13.1% decrease in comparable store sales and a 24.8% decrease in e-commerce sales), which was partially offset by new store growth (the Company opened six factory outlet stores during the past 12 months).  Excluding the event shift, management estimates comparable sales would have declined by 9.5% for the quarter.  As expected, third quarter comparable sales (particularly those of verabradley.com) were negatively impacted by the previously mentioned reduction in clearance activity.  Full-price selling in the Company’s full-line stores and on verabradley.com increased by double digits the quarter. 

Indirect segment revenues totaled $24.2 million, a decrease of 21.7% from $30.9 million in the prior year third quarter, reflecting a reduction in orders from both specialty accounts and certain key accounts, as well as a smaller department store presence. 

Gross profit for the quarter totaled $57.2 million, or 58.5% of net revenues, compared to $63.8 million, or 55.9% of net revenues, in the prior year third quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, the prior year gross profit for the quarter was $64.8 million, or 56.8% of net revenues.  The year-over-year 170 basis point gross profit percentage improvement primarily related to reduced clearance activity and increased full-price selling on verabradley.com and in the Company’s full-line stores, channel mix changes, and a reduction in product cost.  The gross profit percentage was modestly below guidance of 59.0% to 59.2% primarily due to higher-than-expected inbound shipping costs.   

Selling, General, and Administrative (“SG&A”) expense totaled $51.9 million, or 53.1% of net revenues, in the current year third quarter, compared to $63.5 million, or 55.7% of net revenues, in the prior year third quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, SG&A expense totaled $52.0 million, or 45.5% of net revenues, in the prior year third quarter.  SG&A expenses were within the guidance range of $51 to $53 million. 

The Company’s operating income totaled $5.3 million, or 5.5% of net revenues, in the current year third quarter, compared to $0.5 million, or 0.4% of net revenues, in the prior year third quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, the Company’s operating income totaled $13.0 million, or 11.4% of net revenues, in the prior year third quarter.    

By segment, Direct operating income was $14.3 million, or 19.4% of net revenues, compared to $11.2 million, or 13.5% of net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, Direct operating income was $17.6 million, or 21.2% of net revenues, in the prior year.  Indirect operating income was $10.1 million, or 41.6% of net revenues, compared to $10.5 million, or 34.0% of net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, Indirect operating income was $12.2 million, or 39.6% of net revenues, in the prior year.

Details for the Nine Months

The prior year non-GAAP income statement numbers referenced below exclude the previously outlined store impairment, severance, consulting, and other charges. 

Direct segment revenues for the current year nine-month period totaled $230.0 million, a 4.7% decrease from $241.3 million in the prior year.  Comparable sales (including e-commerce) decreased 9.9% for the period (reflecting a 4.9% decline in comparable store sales and a 23.2% decrease in e-commerce sales), which was partially offset by new store growth (the Company opened six factory outlet stores during the past 12 months).  As expected, comparable sales (particularly on verabradley.com) were negatively impacted by the previously mentioned reduction in clearance activity.  Full-price selling in the Company’s full-line stores and on verabradley.com increased approximately 20% for the nine months.

Indirect segment revenues for the nine months decreased 16.5% to $67.9 million from $81.3 million in the prior year, reflecting a reduction in orders from both specialty accounts and certain key accounts. 

Gross profit for the nine months totaled $171.5 million, or 57.6% of net revenues, compared to $179.8 million, or 55.7% of net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, gross profit for the prior year nine months totaled $180.8 million, or 56.0% of net revenues.  The year-over-year 160 basis point gross profit improvement primarily related to reduced clearance activity and increased full-price selling on verabradley.com and in the Company’s full-line stores, freight and shipping savings, channel mix changes, and a reduction in product cost.

SG&A expense totaled $156.3 million, or 52.5% of net revenues, in the current year nine months, compared to $181.0 million, or 56.1% of net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, SG&A expense totaled $164.3 million, or 50.9% of net revenues, in the prior year. 

For the nine months, the Company’s operating income totaled $15.4 million, or 5.2% of net revenues, compared to an operating loss of ($0.6) million, or (0.2%) of net revenues, in the prior year nine-month period.  On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, the Company’s operating income was $17.1 million, or 5.3% of net revenues, in the prior year.    

By segment, Direct operating income was $43.9 million, or 19.1% of net revenues, compared to $35.4 million, or 14.7% of net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, Direct operating income was $42.1 million, or 17.4% of net revenues, in the prior year nine-month period.  Indirect operating income was $27.2 million, or 40.0% of net revenues, compared to $27.8 million, or 34.2% of net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, Indirect operating income was $29.5 million, or 36.3% of net revenues, in the prior year nine-month period.

Balance Sheet

Net capital spending for the third quarter and nine months totaled $0.7 million and $6.6 million, respectively. 

During the third quarter, the Company repurchased approximately $7.5 million of its common stock (approximately 532,000 shares at an average price of $14.15).  The Company had approximately $2.3 million remaining under its share repurchase authorization at quarter end.  In November 2018, the Company repurchased the $2.3 million remaining under the plan, and the board of directors authorized a new $50 million share repurchase authorization that expires in December 2020.  

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments as of November 3, 2018 totaled $131.6 million compared to $108.1 million at the end of last year’s third quarter.  The Company had no debt outstanding at quarter end.  Quarter-end inventory was $96.3 million compared to $100.1 million at the end of last year’s third quarter and within the Company’s guidance range of $90 million to $100 million.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook

All numbers referenced below are non-GAAP.  Prior year non-GAAP numbers exclude the previously disclosed severance charges, store impairment charges, strategic plan consulting fees, tax reform legislation charge, and other charges.  The current year non-GAAP estimates below exclude any potential similar charges.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company expects:

  • Net revenues of $114 to $119 million compared to prior year fourth quarter revenues of $132.0 million.  The decline is largely driven by reduced clearance.
  • A gross profit percentage of 56.0% to 56.5% compared to a non-GAAP adjusted gross profit percentage of 56.3% in the prior year fourth quarter.  Factors expected to improve the year-over-year rate, such as improved full-price selling, a higher percentage of made-for-factory (MFO) product sold within the factory channel, and operational savings, are expected to be at least partially offset by increased China tariffs and higher than expected inbound shipping costs. 
  • SG&A expense of $53.5 to $55.5 million compared to non-GAAP adjusted SG&A expense of $57.1 million in the prior year fourth quarter. 
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.22 to $0.25, based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 35.1 million and an effective tax rate of 25.0%.  On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted net income totaled $11.8 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, in the prior year fourth quarter. 
  • Inventory of $90 to $100 million at fiscal year end, compared to $87.8 million at last fiscal year end.     

For fiscal 2019, Company’s updated expectations are as follows: 

  • Net revenues of $412 to $417 million compared to $454.6 million in fiscal 2018. 
  • A gross profit percentage of 57.1% to 57.3% compared to the non-GAAP adjusted gross profit percentage of 56.1% in fiscal 2018.  The expected gross profit percentage improvement relates to reduced reliance on clearance and improved full-price selling, lower product costs, and operational improvements.
  • SG&A expense of $210 to $212 million compared to non-GAAP adjusted SG&A expense of $221.4 million in fiscal 2018, reflecting expense management and implementation of Vision 20/20 savings.
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.57 to $0.60, based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 35.5 million and an effective tax rate of 25.0%.  On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share totaled $0.60 last year.
  • Net capital spending of approximately $8 million compared to $11.8 million in the prior year. 

The aforementioned fourth quarter and fiscal year guidance includes an approximate 40 basis point impact on gross margin rate, equating to $0.01 per diluted share, from the incremental 10% tariff on specified goods produced in China that went into effect in September 2018.

The prior fiscal year contained an extra (53rd) week.  Management estimates that the additional week contributed approximately $4.1 million in net revenues and increased diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.01 for fiscal 2018.

Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

The Company's management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Further, the non-GAAP measures utilized by the Company may be unique to the Company, as they may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures presented in this earnings release, including prior year gross profit; selling, general, and administrative expenses; operating income; net income and diluted net income per share, along with the associated percentages of net revenues, are helpful to investors because they allow for a more direct comparison of the Company’s year-over-year performance and are consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures can be found in the Company’s supplemental schedules included in this earnings release.
