RadioShack Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Share:

Operating Numbers Reflect Progress in Retail Segment

Three-Day Thanksgiving Holiday Performance Strong on Key Measures

Significant Cost Containment Measures Underway to Right-Size Business

FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) reported its third quarter financial results today for the period ended November 1, 2014.  It also provided a roadmap for extensive cost reduction initiatives and highlighted the positive trends in its retail business as it continues to pursue its operational turnaround and recapitalization efforts.

Joseph C. Magnacca, chief executive officer, said, "Overall our sales for the quarter declined 16.1 percent year over year, including a comparable store sales decline of 13.4 percent. This primarily reflected challenges in the postpaid mobility business.  However, in our retail segment, the other half of our business, comparable store sales at U.S. company-operated stores were only down 2.0 percent compared to last year, and improved throughout the quarter as we focused on higher margin products, including private brand, and innovative new programs like Fix It Here.  Moreover, our core network of "Interactive Remodel" stores collectively performed 12 percentage points better than the total chain on a comparable basis, and in the retail segment performed almost 15 percentage points better on a comparable basis.  

"We have also begun a detailed set of cost reduction initiatives designed to enhance earnings by over $400 million annually, encompassing a range of operating cost reductions related to headquarters, field, stores, and store support to improve operational efficiency and right-size our business, as well as the benefit of targeted store closures. A slide detailing the impact of these initiatives is available on our investor relations web site under the event details page for today's conference call.

"In addition, over the three-day Thanksgiving holiday, comparable store sales in our U.S. corporate stores were up 35 percent for our retail segment, while mobility was down 27 percent.  It is notable that our core retail efforts are working, even as our mobility category is still experiencing challenges."

Mr. Magnacca concluded, "We are  focused on three overarching operational imperatives: 1) reducing costs to end our negative cash flow, 2) driving growth and profitability through our retail platform, and 3) returning to a healthy mobility business that, while much smaller in terms of revenues than in recent years, will be substantially more profitable than our recent results."

Note: All comparisons are versus the same period of the prior fiscal year unless otherwise noted.

13 WEEKS ENDED NOVEMBER 1, 2014, SUMMARY

  • Total net sales and operating revenues were $650.2 million, compared to $775.4 million last year. Comparable store sales were down 13.4% driven by traffic declines and soft performance particularly in the mobility business.
  • Consolidated gross profit was $214.2 million, or 32.9% of net sales, compared with $241.2 million last year, or 31.1% of net sales.  The decline in gross profit dollars was primarily driven by a 24.7% decrease in sales in the mobility platform.  Excluding inventory reserves related to store closures, our consolidated gross profit was $219.7 million, or 33.8% of net sales.
  • Consolidated selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $313.8 million, or 48.3% of net sales, compared with $352.8 million last year, or 45.5% of net sales.  This represents a 2.8 percentage point increase as a percentage of net sales and operating revenues for the 13 weeks ended November 1, 2014, which was driven by declining sales volumes period over period.
  • Operating loss was $114.1 million compared to operating loss of $128.6 million last year. On an adjusted basis, operating loss was $106.4 million excluding certain non-cash items of $2.6 million in impairments of fixed assets and $5.5 million in reserves in inventory, partially offset by $0.4 million in severance.
  • Loss from continuing operations was $161.1 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $135.9 million last year. On an adjusted basis, loss from continuing operations was $125.3 million, which included write-off of fees in connection the debt extinguishment of $28.1 million, which compares to an adjusted loss from continuing operations of $91.1 million last year, which included inventory assortment adjustments of $47.0 million.

39 WEEKS ENDED NOVEMBER 1, 2014, SUMMARY

  • Total net sales and operating revenues were $2,060.7 million, compared to $2,485.2 million last year. Comparable store sales were down 15.8% driven by traffic declines and soft performance particularly in the mobility business.
  • Consolidated gross profit was $720.5 million, or 35.0% of net sales, compared with $883.6 million last year, or 35.6% of net sales.  The decline in gross profit dollars was primarily driven by a 24.7% decrease in sales in the mobility platform.  Excluding inventory reserves related to store closures, our consolidated gross profit was $719.9 million, or 34.9% of net sales.
  • Consolidated selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $973.3 million, or 47.2% of net sales, compared with $1,020.9 million last year, or 41.1% of net sales.  This represents a 6.1 percentage point increase as a percentage of net sales and operating revenues for the 39 weeks ended November 1, 2014, which was driven by declining sales volumes period over period.  SG&A expenses for the nine months ended October 31, 2013, included a gain on the sale of a building of $2.4 million. Excluding the impact of severance costs, consolidation of certain facilities in China and a non-cash charge related to the elimination of a key executive life insurance program, our SG&A was $954.1 million dollars, or 46.3% of net sales.  These adjusted SG&A dollar decreases were primarily related to compensation and advertising as a result of our cost reduction efforts.
  • Operating loss was $314.5 million compared to operating loss of $190.0 million last year. On an adjusted basis, operating loss was $271.9 million excluding certain non-cash items of $8.2 million in severance and $24.0 million in impairments of fixed assets and goodwill partially offset by $0.6 million in inventory reserves.
  • Loss from continuing operations was $396.8 million, or $3.89 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $210.6 million last year. On an adjusted basis, loss from continuing operations was $326.1 million, which included write-off of fees in connection the debt extinguishment of $28.1 million, which compares to an adjusted loss from continuing operations of $180.5 million last year, which included inventory assortment adjustments of $47.0 million.

NON-GAAP DISCLOSURES

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating loss, adjusted loss from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA have each been adjusted to exclude certain items specifically identified in the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that providing comparisons for these measures, adjusted for the items shown in the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information to the reader in assessing our operating performance. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the business for comparable periods; however, they are not intended to replace the comparable GAAP measures.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are provided in the accompanying schedules.
