Build-A-Bear Workshop Earnings Preview


Build-A-Bear Workshop BBW releases its next round of earnings this Thursday, August 26. Get the latest predictions in Benzinga's essential guide to the company's Q2 earnings report.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Earnings and especially earnings per share (EPS) are useful measures of a company's profitability. Total earnings, which is also referred to as net income, equals total revenue minus total expenses. EPS equals to net income divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Earnings And Revenue

Build-A-Bear Workshop's per-share loss will be near $-0.2 on sales of $81.00 million, according to Wall Street analysts. In the same quarter last year, Build-A-Bear Workshop posted a loss of $0.82 per share on sales of $40.35 million.

Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important

Wall Street analysts who study this company will publish analyst estimates of revenue and EPS. The averages of all analyst EPS and revenue estimates are called the "consensus estimates"; these consensus estimates can have a significant effect on a company's performance during an earnings release. When a company posts earnings or revenue above or below a consensus estimate, it has posted an "earnings surprise", which can really move a stock depending on the difference between actual and estimated values.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Thursday, earnings would be up 75.61%. Revenue would be up 100.73% on a year-over-year basis. Build-A-Bear Workshop's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:

Quarter Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate -0.53 0.16 -0.04 -0.80
EPS Actual 0.60 0.47 0.11 -0.82
Revenue Estimate 42.95 M 90.49 M 72.93 M 31.79 M
Revenue Actual 91.69 M 93.66 M 74.67 M 40.35 M
