MINNEAPOLIS, May 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tile Shop Holdings, Inc. (OTC Pink: TTSH) (the “Company”), a specialty retailer of natural stone and man-made tiles, setting and maintenance materials, and related accessories, today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

First Quarter Summary

Net Sales Increased 8.5%
Comparable Store Sales Increased 6.7%
Gross Margin of 68.9%
Net Income of $3.5 Million; Adjusted EBITDA of $11.4 Million
$25.5 Million Reduction of Debt

Management Commentary – Cabell Lolmaugh, CEO
“Improving retail execution, professional customer relationship development, and disciplined expense management enabled us to reduce our debt balance by over 40% during the first quarter,” stated Cabell Lolmaugh, CEO. “The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on our business and it is disappointing for our entire team after seeing encouraging results to start the year. Store closures and shelter in place orders have resulted in a 50% decrease in traffic and sales across our chain during the month of April. We are focused on the safety of our customers and employees and minimizing the long-term impact on our business.”

(1) As compared to the prior year period.
(2) The comparable store sales operating metric is the percentage change in sales of comparable stores period over period. A store is considered comparable on the first day of the 13th full month of operation. When a store is relocated, it is excluded from the comparable store sales calculation. Comparable store sales includes total charges to customers less any actual returns. The Company includes the change in allowance for anticipated sales returns applicable to comparable stores in the comparable store sales calculation. Comparable store sales data reported by other companies may be prepared on a different basis and therefore may not be useful for purposes of comparing the Company’s results to those of other businesses. Company management believes the comparable store sales operating metric provides useful information to both management and investors to evaluate the Company’s performance, the effectiveness of its strategy and its competitive position. 


FIRST QUARTER 2020

Net Sales
Net sales increased $7.4 million, or 8.5%, from $86.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 to $94.3 million in the first quarter of 2020. Comparable store sales increased $5.8 million, or 6.7%, for the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019 due to stronger conversion rates and higher average tickets which were partially offset by weaker store traffic. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company experienced a significant negative impact on conversion rates due to the implementation of a new ERP system. Traffic levels decreased sharply in March 2020 following the outbreak of COVID-19. Sales generated by stores not included in the comparable store base increased $1.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Gross Profit
Gross profit increased $3.1 million, or 5.0%, from $61.8 million in the first quarter of 2019 to $65.0 million in the first quarter of 2020. The gross margin rate was 68.9% for the first quarter of 2020 and 71.2% for the first quarter of 2019. The decrease in the gross margin rate during the first quarter of 2020 was primarily driven by an increase in the cost of products sold during the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $3.4 million, or 5.8%, from $58.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 to $62.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase in selling, general and administrative expense was primarily due to $2.2 million of asset impairment charges and a $1.1 million increase in legal expenses that was largely due to shareholder litigation.

Inventory
Inventory decreased $11.3 million from $97.6 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019 to $86.3 million at the end of the first quarter of 2020. 

Long-Term Debt
Long-term debt decreased $25.5 million from $63.0 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019 to $37.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2020.

(2) Represents the average lease liability and deferred rent account balances for the four quarters ended as of each of the balance sheet dates.


Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company calculates Adjusted EBITDA by taking net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, and adjusting for interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA margin is equal to Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. The Company calculates Pretax Return on Capital Employed by taking (loss) income from operations divided by capital employed. Capital employed equals total assets less accounts payable, income taxes payable, other accrued liabilities, deferred rent, lease liability and other long-term liabilities. Other companies may calculate both Adjusted EBITDA and Pretax Return on Capital Employed differently, limiting the usefulness of these measures for comparative purposes.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. Company management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare Company performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, for purposes of determining management incentive compensation, for budgeting and planning purposes, and for assessing the effectiveness of capital allocation over time. These measures are used in monthly financial reports prepared for management and the Board of Directors. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other specialty retailers, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Company management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitations of these non-GAAP financial measures are that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recognized in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the business.

IMPACT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant economic hardship across the United States and is having a material, adverse effect on the Company. Significant uncertainty exists concerning the magnitude, impact and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the majority of the Company’s stores are still open to the public, the Company has taken steps to close stores and limit its hours of operation when stores are able to remain open. Since the beginning of the second quarter, the Company’s traffic and sales have decreased by approximately 50% when compared to the same period in 2019. Factors deriving from the COVID-19 response that have and are expected to continue to negatively impact the Company in the future include: limitations on the ability of the Company’s suppliers to manufacture and ship the products sold by the Company; limitations on the Company’s employees’ ability to perform their work due to illness caused by the pandemic or local, state, or federal orders requiring the Company’s stores to close or employees to remain at home; limitation of carriers to deliver the Company’s product to customers; limitations on the ability of the Company’s customers to conduct their business and purchase the Company’s products and services; and limitations on the ability of the Company’s customers to pay in a timely manner. These events are expected to have a material, adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, cash flows and liquidity at least until the COVID-19 pandemic moderates. The effectiveness of economic stabilization efforts, including U.S. government payments to affected citizens and industries, is uncertain. A recession resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic would prolong and exacerbate the negative impact on us. 

The Company has taken immediate steps to curtail operating expenses that include reducing the size of its workforce and temporarily suspending incentive compensation programs. Additionally, the Company is conserving cash by limiting inventory purchases, cutting anticipated spending on capital projects, and pursuing rent deferrals with its landlords. Although each of the remedial measures was taken to protect the business and preserve liquidity, each may also have the potential to have a material adverse impact on the Company’s current business, financial condition and results of operations, and may create additional risks for the Company. While the Company anticipates that the foregoing measures are temporary, it cannot predict the specific duration for which these precautionary measures will stay in effect, and there may be a need to take additional measures as the information available continues to develop, including with respect to the Company’s employees, relationships with its third-party vendors, and its customers. It is also possible that the remedial measures taken will not be adequate to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the events described above, which could further adversely affect the Company’s business, results of operations, cash flow and liquidity.

The Company’s Credit Agreement with Bank of America, N.A, Fifth Third Bank, and Citizen’s Bank (the “Credit Agreement”) provides the Company with a senior credit facility consisting of a $100.0 million revolving line of credit through September 18, 2023. Borrowings outstanding consisted of $37.5 million on the revolving line of credit as of March 31, 2020. The Credit Agreement includes financial and other covenants, including covenants to maintain certain fixed charge ratios and consolidated total rent adjusted leverage ratios. The Company was in compliance with its covenants as of March 31, 2020. 

As described above, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of some of the Company’s stores, the Company’s financial performance has been negatively impacted and will continue to be negatively impacted until the pandemic eases. Prior to the outbreak of the pandemic, the Company believed that it would comply with the financial covenants under the Credit Agreement over the next twelve months; however, given current trends caused by the pandemic, it is unlikely that it will comply with certain covenants (such as the leverage ratio) in the second quarter of 2020 and possibly subsequent quarters. Under the terms of the Credit Agreement, the lenders could require repayment of the debt in advance of its maturity in the event of default. The Company is actively working with the lenders and evaluating a range of options. The Company expects to obtain an amendment or waiver from its lenders prior to a potential breach. Failure to obtain a waiver or amendment would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s liquidity, financial condition and results of operations.

WEBCAST AND CONFERENCE CALL

The Company will not hold an earnings conference call for its first quarter 2020 financial results.
