J.Jill, Inc. JILL today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 29, 2022.

Claire Spofford, President and Chief Executive Officer of J.Jill, Inc, stated, "Fiscal 2021 marked a year of significant recovery for J.Jill driven by the strengthening of our operating model focused on delivering gross margin improvement through disciplined inventory management and full price selling. We delivered significant Adjusted EBITDA expansion while navigating a dynamic macro environment, particularly in the second half of the year. I want to thank all of my teammates at J.Jill for their contributions to driving our strategic objectives."

Ms. Spofford continued, "As we move into fiscal 2022, we are pleased with our performance to date, and we enter the year building on the disciplines we have established, particularly with regard to inventory and expense management. Looking ahead, our focus will remain on driving profitable growth while introducing new customers to our relevant and compelling brand and products."

For the fourth quarter ended January 29, 2022:

  • Total net sales for the thirteen weeks ended January 29, 2022 were up 15.3% to $145.2 million compared to $125.9 million for the thirteen weeks ended January 30, 2021.
  • Total company comparable sales, which includes comparable store and direct to consumer sales, increased by 19.7%.
  • Direct to consumer net sales were down 8.8% over 2020 driven by lower markdown sales and represented 52.1% of total net sales.
  • Gross profit was $92.7 million compared to $71.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Gross margin was 63.9% compared to 56.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. The year over year gross margin increase was driven by strong full price selling and reduced promotions which more than offset approximately 300bps of freight expense due to supply chain disruption.
  • SG&A was $85.2 million compared to $85.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, SG&A included $1.2 million of transaction costs related to the debt-restructuring completed on September 30, 2020, and other one-time expenses compared with a one-time benefit of $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021.

  • Net Income was $3.6 million compared to a net loss of $26.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Net Income per Diluted Share was $0.25 compared to a net loss of $2.80 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 including the impact of non-recurring items. Excluding the impact of these items, Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share* in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was $0.15 compared to a loss of $1.30 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was $15.2 million compared to a loss of $3.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

The year over year gross margin increase was driven by strong full price selling and reduced promotions which more than offset approximately 125bps of freight expense due to supply chain disruption.
  • SG&A was $335.7 million compared to $343.4 million for the year ended January 30, 2021. For the year ended January 30, 2021, SG&A included $23.3 million of transaction costs related to the debt-restructuring completed on September 30, 2020, and other one-time expenses compared with $0.3 million of one-time expenses for the year ended January 29, 2022. Excluding these one-time items from both periods, SG&A as a percentage of total net sales was 57.3% compared to 75.0% for the year ended January 30, 2021.

The mark-to-market adjustment was caused by the impact of J.Jill's higher stock price on the valuation of the Company's option to either paydown $4.9 million of principal on May 31, 2021 or issue additional shares to the lenders and the related antidilution provision in the warrant agreement.
  • During year ended January 29, 2022, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $8.0 million compared to a benefit of $48.2 million in year ended January 30, 2021, and the effective tax rate was (39.8%) compared to 25.7% in year ended January 30, 2021.
  • Net Loss was $28.1 million which includes $59.8 million of charges related to the fair value adjustment of the warrants and the Priming Loan embedded derivative, compared to a loss of $139.4 million for the year ended January 30, 2021.
  • Net Loss per Diluted Share was $2.26 compared to a net loss of $15.22 for the year ended January 30, 2021 including the impact of non-recurring items.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we use the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation expense, impairments of goodwill, intangible assets and other long-lived assets, fair value adjustments of warrants and derivatives and other non-recurring expenses and one-time items. We present Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated basis because management uses it as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the primary methods for planning and forecasting overall expected performance of our business and for evaluating on a quarterly and annual basis actual results against such expectations. Further, we recognize Adjusted EBITDA as a commonly used measure in determining business value and as such, use it internally to report results.
  • Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, which represents operating income (loss) plus impairments of goodwill, intangible assets and other long-lived assets and other non-recurring expense and one-time items. We present Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations because management uses it as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts, and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period.
  • Adjusted Net Income (Loss), which represents net income (loss) plus impairments of goodwill, intangible assets and other long-lived assets, fair value adjustments of warrants and derivatives and other non-recurring expenses and one-time items. We present Adjusted Net Income (Loss) because management uses it as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period.
  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Share ("Adjusted Diluted EPS") represents Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted Diluted EPS is presented as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period.

While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS are useful in evaluating our business, they are non-GAAP financial measures that have limitations as analytical tools. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS should not be considered alternatives to, or substitutes for, net income (loss) or EPS, which are calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS differently or not at all, which reduces the usefulness of such non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. We recommend that you review the reconciliation and calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS to net income (loss) and EPS, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, under "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as well as Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Income (Loss) to Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations" and not rely solely on Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS or any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
