FORT WAYNE, Ind., Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vera Bradley, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRA) ("Vera Bradley" or the "Company") today announced its financial results for the fiscal second quarter and six months ended August 4, 2018. 

Comments on Performance and Looking Ahead

Robert Wallstrom, Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are very pleased that our second quarter results exceeded both expectations and last year's performance, primarily driven by a higher-than-expected gross margin rate related to reduced clearance, improved full-price selling, and freight and shipping efficiencies, as well as better-than-expected SG&A expense management. Revenues were in line with our guidance." 

Wallstrom continued, "At this time last year, we initiated Vision 20/20, our plan to strengthen our brand and financial health by drastically reducing clearance revenues and realigning our expense structure in order to create a solid foundation for future growth. We have made tremendous headway against our initiatives over the last year and especially in the last six months. So far this year, we have reduced clearance activity in our full-line stores and on verabradley.com by over 70% and increased full-price selling in these channels by over 20%. We are continuing to drive brand desirability through product innovation and targeted marketing while achieving meaningful expense reductions through diligent expense management. We also increased our year-over-year cash and investment balances by over $40 million to $144.8 million." 

"By executing Vision 20/20, our business and brand are becoming healthier, and cash flow is improving. We are laying the foundation for long-term operating performance improvement and growth of the business and continue to be excited about Vera Bradley's future," Wallstrom concluded. 

Summary of Financial Performance for the Second Quarter

Net revenues totaled $113.6 million for the current year second quarter ended August 4, 2018, compared to $112.4 million in the prior year second quarter ended July 29, 2017. Revenues were in line with the Company's guidance range of $111 million to $116 million. 

For the current year second quarter, the Company posted net income of $9.3 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. 

For the prior year second quarter, the Company posted net income of $2.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share. These results included $2.4 million of after-tax charges comprised of:

  • Strategic plan consulting fees of $1.5 million;
  • Severance charges of $0.7 million; and
  • Net lease termination charges of $0.2 million.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding these charges, the Company's prior year second quarter net income totaled $4.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share.

Summary of Financial Performance for the Six Months

Net revenues totaled $200.2 million for the current year six months ended August 4, 2018, compared to $208.6 million in the prior year six month period ended July 29, 2017.

For the current year six months, the Company posted net income of $7.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. 

For the prior year six months, the Company posted a net loss of ($1.9) million, or ($0.05) per diluted share. These results included $3.3 million of after-tax charges comprised of:

  • Severance charges of $1.6 million;
  • Strategic plan consulting fees of $1.5 million; and
  • Net lease termination charges of $0.2 million.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding these charges, the Company's net income totaled $1.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the prior year six months.

Second Quarter Details

The non-GAAP prior year second quarter income statement numbers referenced below exclude the previously disclosed consulting, severance, and lease termination charges.

Current year second quarter Direct segment revenues totaled $91.0 million, a 1.9% increase from $89.3 million in the prior year second 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. Comparable sales (including e-commerce and the event shift) decreased 4.9% for the quarter (reflecting a 1.7% increase in comparable store sales and a 23.1% decrease in e-commerce sales), which was more than offset by new store growth (the Company opened one full-line pop-up store and nine factory outlet stores during the past 12 months). As expected, second 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 over 30% in the quarter.

Indirect segment revenues totaled $22.6 million, a decrease of 2.0% from $23.1 million in the prior year second quarter. 

Gross profit for the quarter totaled $65.7 million, or 57.9% of net revenues, compared to $63.3 million, or 56.3% of net revenues, in the prior year second quarter. The year-over-year 160 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, freight and shipping savings, channel mix changes, and a reduction in product cost. The gross profit percentage was meaningfully better than guidance of approximately 56.2% primarily due to better-than-expected full-price selling.

Selling, General, and Administrative ("SG&A") expense totaled $53.8 million, or 47.3% of net revenues, in the current year second quarter, compared to $59.7 million, or 53.1% of net revenues, in the prior year second quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, SG&A expense totaled $55.9 million, or 49.7% of net revenues, in the prior year second quarter. SG&A expenses were lower than the guidance range of $55 to $57 million due to diligent expense management. 

The Company's operating income totaled $12.0 million, or 10.6% of net revenues, in the current year second quarter, compared to $3.7 million, or 3.3% of net revenues, in the prior year second quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, the Company's operating income totaled $7.5 million, or 6.7% of net revenues, in the prior year second quarter.

By segment, Direct operating income was $22.3 million, or 24.5% of net revenues, compared to $17.3 million, or 19.4% of net revenues, in the prior year. On a non-GAAP basis, Direct operating income was $17.6 million (which excluded $0.3 million of charges), or 19.8% of net revenues, in the prior year. Indirect operating income was $8.8 million, or 39.1% of net revenues, compared to $7.8 million, or 33.9% of net revenues, in the prior year. 

Details for the Six Months

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

Direct segment revenues for the current year six month period totaled $156.6 million, a 1.0% decrease from $158.2 million in the prior year. Direct segment revenues reflect the previously disclosed movement of approximately $6 million to the second quarter this year from the third quarter last year, related to the timing of promotional events. Comparable sales (including e-commerce and the event shift) decreased 6.4% for the period (reflecting a 0.5% decline in comparable store sales and a 22.2% decrease in e-commerce sales), which was partially offset by new store growth (the Company opened one full-line pop-up store and nine 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 by over 20% for the six months.

Indirect segment revenues for the six months decreased 13.3% to $43.7 million from $50.4 million in the prior year, reflecting a reduction in orders from both specialty accounts and certain key accounts. 

Gross profit for the six months totaled $114.4 million, or 57.1% of net revenues, compared to $116.0 million, or 55.6% of net revenues, in the prior year. The year-over-year 150 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 $104.5 million, or 52.2% of net revenues, in the current year six months, compared to $117.5 million, or 56.3% of net revenues, in the prior year. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, SG&A expense totaled $112.4 million, or 53.9% of net revenues, in the prior year. 

For the six months, the Company's operating income totaled $10.1 million, or 5.0% of net revenues, compared to an operating loss of ($1.1) million, or (0.5%) of net revenues, in the prior year six month period. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, the Company's operating income was $4.1 million, or 1.9% of net revenues, in the prior year.

By segment, Direct operating income was $29.6 million, or 18.9% of net revenues, compared to $24.1 million, or 15.3% of net revenues, in the prior year. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the previously outlined charges, Direct operating income was $24.5 million (which excluded $0.3 million of charges), or 15.5% of net revenues, in the prior year six month period. Indirect operating income was $17.1 million, or 39.2% of net revenues, compared to $17.3 million, or 34.3% of net revenues, in the prior year. 

Balance Sheet

Net capital spending for the second quarter and six months totaled $2.2 million and $5.9 million, respectively. 

During the second quarter, the Company repurchased approximately $3.6 million of its common stock (approximately 250,000 shares at an average price of $14.24). The Company has approximately $9.8 million remaining under its share repurchase authorization.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments as of August 4, 2018 totaled $144.8 million compared to $102.3 million at the end of last year's second quarter. The Company had no debt outstanding at quarter end. Quarter-end inventory was $86.3 million compared to $104.1 million at the end of last year's second quarter and at the low end of guidance of $85 million to $95 million.

Third 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 third quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company expects:

  • Net revenues of $98 to $103 million compared to prior year third quarter revenues of $114.1 million. This estimate reflects the movement of approximately $6 million in revenues from the third quarter last year to the second quarter this year, related to promotional event timing shifts.
  • A gross profit percentage of 59.0% to 59.2% compared to adjusted gross profit percentage of 56.8% (excluding charges) in the prior year third quarter. The expected gross profit margin improvement relates to improved full-price selling, a higher percentage of made-for-factory (MFO) product sold within the factory channel, and operational (freight and shipping) savings. 
  • SG&A expense of $51.0 to $53.0 million compared to adjusted SG&A expense (before charges) of $52.0 million in the prior year third quarter. 
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.14 to $0.16, based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 35.7 million and an effective tax rate of 25.0%. The previously mentioned event shifts will reduce income by approximately $0.07 per diluted share in the current year third quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding charges, adjusted net income totaled $8.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the prior year third quarter. 
  • Inventory of $90 to $100 million at the end of the third quarter, compared to $100.1 million at the end of last year's third quarter.

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

  • Net revenues of $410 to $420 million compared to $454.6 million in fiscal 2018. 
  • A gross profit percentage of 57.6% to 57.9% compared to the adjusted gross profit percentage (before charges) 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 $211 to $215 million compared to adjusted SG&A expense (before charges) of $221.4 million in fiscal 2018, reflecting expense management and implementation of Vision 20/20 savings.
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.55 to $0.62, based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 35.7 million and an effective tax rate of 25.0%. Excluding charges, adjusted diluted earnings per share totaled $0.60 last year.
  • Net capital spending of approximately $10 million compared to $11.8 million in the prior year. 

The aforementioned guidance does not include any impact from increased tariffs. Management estimates that an incremental 10% tariff on specified goods produced in China would negatively affect the Company's diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.02 and that an incremental 25% tariff would negatively affect diluted earnings per share by $0.04 to $0.05 for the second half of fiscal 2019. 

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 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.
