TANDY BRAND : Tandy Brands Reports Fiscal 2010 Third Quarter Earnings Results

05/12/2010 | 04:20pm US/Eastern

DALLAS, May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tandy Brands Accessories, Inc. (Nasdaq: TBAC) today reported its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2010.

Net sales for the quarter were $27.7 million, up 11 percent, compared to $25.1 million in the same period last year. Net sales of $7.7 million, related to the first quarter 2010 acquisition of certain assets of the Chambers Belt Company (Chambers), contributed to the third quarter net sales increase.

"Our company-wide focus on careful planning, opportunistic investments and strategic decision-making is driving tangible business results," said Rod McGeachy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tandy Brands. "We delivered significant improvements in net sales, selling, general and administrative expenses, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income. These improvements met our internal expectations, and we will continue to focus our efforts on making Tandy Brands a stronger and more profitable organization."

Selling, general and administrative expense declined $1.9 million to $11.2 million from $13.1 million reported in the year-ago quarter. The company also reported an adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) loss of $0.7 million for the 2010 third quarter, which included charges for certain acquisition-related items, compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $3.9 million in the year-ago period, an improvement of $3.2 million.

The company reported a net loss of $3.3 million, or ($0.48) per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, compared to a net loss of $12.3 million, or ($1.78) per diluted share, in the fiscal 2009 third quarter. The prior-year third quarter included an inventory write-down charge of $7.5 million and a restructuring charge of $0.8 million.

Third quarter 2010 results include a $1.2 million restructuring charge related to distribution and facilities consolidation charges announced in February 2010 and a $0.6 million charge resulting from increased earn-out payments on the Chambers acquisition due to net sales exceeding forecasts. Excluding these items, Tandy Brands reported an adjusted net loss of $1.6 million, or ($0.23) per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

Nine-Month Results

For the first nine months of fiscal 2010, Tandy Brands reported net sales of $113.2 million, a 10 percent increase over net sales of $102.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2009. Chambers contributed $24.1 million of net sales during the nine-month period, which offset a $13.5 million, or 13 percent decline, in organic sales.

"In the midst of the current economic recession, despite retailers carrying less inventory, we continue to be successful in executing our growth strategy, strengthening our financial position and mitigating organic sales declines," said McGeachy. "Our Product Lifecycle Management process allows us to implement tighter inventory management while moving to a more productive product mix across all segments.

"Additionally, the Chambers acquisition has exceeded our expectations. We have been able to leverage our core competencies in design, sourcing and distribution to drive significant sales growth while recognizing operational synergies. Overall, I am pleased with our third quarter and nine-month results, having achieved double-digit top-line growth and improved bottom-line results."

Selling, general and administrative expenses improved $1.5 million to $38.2 million for the 2010 nine-month period, compared to $39.7 million reported in the year-ago period. The reductions were driven by $1.2 million of lower bad debt expenses and $2.9 million of lower facilities, employment and distribution expenses, and offset by $2.6 million of higher selling and distribution costs from the Chambers acquisition. The company reported adjusted EBITDA of $4.1 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2010 compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.5 million for the 2009 nine-month period, an improvement of $5.6 million.

Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2010 was $4.6 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $12.6 million, or ($1.82) per diluted share, for the 2009 comparable period. The fiscal 2010 results include $3.9 million from property and equipment sales, acquisition related costs, and income tax carrybacks; a bargain purchase gain of $1.4 million associated with the Chambers acquisition; and $1.4 million of restructuring charges relating to the previously described facilities closure and distribution consolidation. Excluding these items, the company reported fiscal 2010 adjusted net income of $1.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, which represents a $4.0 million improvement over fiscal 2009.

The fiscal 2009 results included an inventory write-down of $7.5 million, a restructuring charge of $0.8 million and $1.2 million of bad debt expenses. Excluding these items, the company reported a fiscal 2009 adjusted net loss of $3.0 million, or ($0.44) per diluted share.

Financial Position

At the end of the third quarter, the company had $35.0 million in working capital, including $20.7 million of receivables, $29.1 million of inventories, and borrowings of $7 million. On May 10, 2010, the company's revolving line of credit was extended through October 31, 2012 and provides for more flexibility in its covenants.

"The improvements we have made in strengthening our operating performance have enabled us to negotiate improved terms of our $27.5 million credit facility. This additional flexibility will allow us to reinvest in our business and strengthen our working capital position," McGeachy said.

Outlook

"Despite the challenging operating environment, we believe our long-term growth will be favorably affected by our methodical restructuring efforts to drive top-line growth and bottom-line profitability through clean inventory and expense control, supply chain management, brand enhancements and product quality," said Mr. McGeachy. "We also continue to invest in our future by seeking opportunistic acquisitions in order to achieve our growth objectives.

"We reiterate our previously announced guidance of 8 to 12 percent net sales growth for fiscal 2010, with sharp improvements in profitability compared to fiscal 2009 results."

    Our adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measurement, is defined as net
    income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization,
    and certain acquisition related items.  Adjusted EBITDA is presented
    because we believe it provides useful information about our business
    activities and also is frequently used by securities analysts,
    investors, and other interested parties in evaluating a company's
    performance.  Not all companies utilize identical calculations;
    therefore, our presentation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable
    to other identically titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and
    adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools and you should
    not consider them in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of
    our results of operations as reported under U.S. generally accepted
    accounting principles ("GAAP").  The following table reconciles our
    GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA.
