Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation
  • On a GAAP basis, total sales increased 11%

BURLINGTON, N.J., May 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Burlington Stores, Inc. (NYSE: BURL), a nationally recognized off-price retailer of high-quality, branded apparel, footwear, accessories, and merchandise for the home at everyday low prices, today announced its results for the first quarter ended April 29, 2023.

Michael O’Sullivan, CEO, stated, “Our first quarter comparable sales growth came in just below guidance. We had gotten off to a very strong start but then the trend fell off in March. We believe that this weakening in the trend was driven by two external and transitory factors – lower tax refunds and cooler weather leading up to Easter.”

Mr. O’Sullivan continued, “We have seen a nice pick-up in our trend since mid-April. We feel good about our underlying strategies and our focus on delivering value to the customer. We are encouraged by the recent trend but given the risks and uncertainties we think it is prudent to manage our business conservatively. We are ready to chase if this current trend is sustained.”

Looking to the full year, Mr. O’Sullivan said, “We are reiterating our full year sales and earnings guidance. We see plenty of uncertainty and we remain concerned about the economic health of the lower-income shopper, but we also see some potential tailwinds. The supply environment remains very strong and with our focus on value, we believe that we are well positioned to achieve this full year guidance.”

Mr. O’Sullivan concluded, “In addition to driving our near-term performance, we are continuing to make strong progress on our major Burlington 2.0 initiatives. We are particularly excited about some of the new processes and tools that we are rolling out to the merchant team this year. We believe that these will further enhance our ability to execute the off-price model and deliver tremendous value to the customer.”

Fiscal 2023 First Quarter Operating Results (for the 13-week period ended April 29, 2023, compared with the 13-week period ended April 30, 2022)

  • Total sales increased 11% compared to the first quarter of Fiscal 2022 to $2,133 million, while comparable store sales increased 4% compared to the first quarter of Fiscal 2022.

  • Gross margin rate as a percentage of net sales was 42.3% vs. 41.0% for the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, an increase of 130 basis points. Freight expense improved 150 basis points which was partially offset by a 20 basis point merchandise margin decline, primarily driven by higher markdowns.

  • Product sourcing costs, which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A), were $187 million vs. $157 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022. Product sourcing costs include the costs of processing goods through our supply chain and buying costs.

  • SG&A was 35.4% as a percentage of net sales vs. 35.3% in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, higher by 10 basis points. Adjusted SG&A was 26.5% as a percentage of net sales vs. 26.7% in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, an improvement of 20 basis points.

  • The effective tax rate was 24.4% vs. 8.7% in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022. The Adjusted Effective Tax Rate was 24.5% vs. 19.2% in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022.

  • Net income was $33 million, or $0.50 per share vs. $16 million, or $0.24 per share for the first quarter of Fiscal 2022. Adjusted Net Income was $55 million, or $0.84 per share, vs. $36 million, or $0.54 per share for the first quarter of Fiscal 2022.

  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding amounted to 65.3 million shares during the quarter compared with 66.6 million shares during the first quarter of Fiscal 2022.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $157 million vs. $125 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, an increase of 90 basis points as a percentage of sales. Adjusted EBIT was $87 million vs. $59 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, an increase of 100 basis points as a percentage of sales.

Inventory

  • Merchandise inventories were $1,231 million vs. $1,257 million at the end of the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, a 2% decrease, while comparable store inventories increased 10% compared to the first quarter of Fiscal 2022. Reserve inventory was 44% of total inventory at the end of the first quarter of Fiscal 2023 compared to 50% at the end of the first quarter of Fiscal 2022. Reserve inventory is largely composed of merchandise that is purchased opportunistically and that will be sent to stores in future months or next season.

Liquidity and Debt

  • The Company ended the first quarter of Fiscal 2023 with $1,372 million in liquidity, comprised of $532 million in unrestricted cash and $840 million in availability on its ABL facility.

  • During the first quarter of Fiscal 2023, the Company entered into privately negotiated transactions to repurchase approximately $110 million in principal amount of the Company’s outstanding 2.25% Convertible Notes. The total transaction value of approximately $133 million was settled in cash in the first quarter.

  • The Company ended the first quarter with $1,364 million in outstanding total debt, including $945 million on its Term Loan facility, $397 million in Convertible Notes, and no borrowings on its ABL facility.

Common Stock Repurchases

  • During the first quarter of Fiscal 2023, the Company repurchased 245,414 shares of its common stock under its share repurchase program for $51 million. As of the end of the first quarter of Fiscal 2023, the Company had $296 million remaining on its current share repurchase program authorization.

Outlook
For the full Fiscal Year 2023 (the 53-weeks ending February 3, 2023), the Company expects:

  • Total sales to increase in the range of 12% to 14% including approximately 2% from the 53rd week, on top of a 7% decrease in Fiscal 2022; this assumes comparable store sales will increase in the range of 3% to 5%, on top of the 13% decrease during Fiscal 2022;

  • Capital expenditures, net of landlord allowances, to be approximately $560 million;

  • To open 70-80 net new stores;

  • Depreciation and amortization, exclusive of favorable lease costs, to be approximately $320 million;

  • Adjusted EBIT margin to increase 80 to 120 basis points versus last year;

  • Net interest expense to be approximately $63 million;

  • An Adjusted Effective Tax Rate of approximately 26%; and

  • Adjusted EPS to be in the range of $5.50 to $6.00, utilizing a fully diluted share count of approximately 65 million, as compared to Fiscal 2022 diluted EPS of $3.49 and Adjusted EPS of $4.26. This includes an expected benefit from the 53rd week of approximately $0.05 per share.

For the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 (the 13 weeks ending July 29, 2023), the Company expects:

  • Total sales to increase in the range of 8% to 10%; this assumes comparable store sales will increase in the range of 2% to 4% versus the second quarter of Fiscal 2022;

  • Adjusted EBIT margin to increase 10 to 50 basis points versus the second quarter of Fiscal 2022;

  • An Adjusted Effective Tax Rate of approximately 25%; and

  • Adjusted EPS in the range of $0.35 to $0.45, as compared to $0.18 in diluted EPS and $0.35 in Adjusted EPS last year.

The Company has not presented a quantitative reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures set out above to their most comparable GAAP financial measures because it would require the Company to create estimated ranges on a GAAP basis, which would entail unreasonable effort. Adjustments required to reconcile forward-looking non-GAAP measures cannot be predicted with reasonable certainty but may include, among others, costs related to debt amendments, loss on extinguishment of debt, and impairment charges, as well as the tax effect of such items. Some or all of those adjustments could be significant.

Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The foregoing discussion of the Company’s operating results includes references to Adjusted SG&A, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share (or Adjusted EPS), Adjusted EBIT (or Operating Margin), and Adjusted Effective Tax Rate. The Company believes these supplemental measures are useful in evaluating the performance of our business and provide greater transparency into our results of operations. In particular, we believe that excluding certain items that may vary substantially in frequency and magnitude from what we consider to be our core operating results are useful supplemental measures that assist investors and management in evaluating our ability to generate earnings and leverage sales, and to more readily compare core operating results between past and future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are defined and reconciled to the most comparable GAAP measures later in this document.

From time to time when discussing its comparable store sales trends, the Company references its geometric stack, which is defined as a stacked comparable sales growth rate that accounts for the compounding of comparable store sales from Fiscal 2019 to Fiscal 2023.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)
(Amounts in thousands, except per share data)

The following tables calculate the Company’s Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted SG&A and Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, all of which are considered non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income, exclusive of the following items, if applicable: (i) net favorable lease costs; (ii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iii) impairment charges; (iv) amounts related to certain litigation matters; and (v) other unusual, non-recurring or extraordinary expenses, losses, charges or gains, all of which are tax effected to arrive at Adjusted Net Income.

Adjusted EPS is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding, as defined in the table below.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income, exclusive of the following items, if applicable: (i) interest expense; (ii) interest income; (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iv) income tax expense; (v) depreciation and amortization; (vi) net favorable lease costs; (vii) impairment charges; (viii) amounts related to certain litigation matters; and (xi) other unusual, non-recurring or extraordinary expenses, losses, charges or gains.

Adjusted EBIT (or Adjusted Operating Margin) is defined as net income, exclusive of the following items, if applicable: (i) interest expense; (ii) interest income; (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iv) income tax expense; (v) impairment charges; (vi) net favorable lease costs; (vii) amounts related to certain litigation matters; and (viii) other unusual, non-recurring or extraordinary expenses, losses, charges or gains.

Adjusted SG&A is defined as SG&A less product sourcing costs, favorable lease costs and amounts related to certain litigation matters.

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate is defined as the GAAP effective tax rate less the tax effect of the reconciling items to arrive at Adjusted Net Income (footnote (d) in the table below).

The Company presents Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted SG&A and Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, because it believes they are useful supplemental measures in evaluating the performance of the Company’s business and provide greater transparency into the results of operations. In particular, the Company believes that excluding certain items that may vary substantially in frequency and magnitude from what the Company considers to be its core operating results are useful supplemental measures that assist in evaluating the Company’s ability to generate earnings and leverage sales, and to more readily compare core operating results between past and future periods.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide investors helpful information with respect to the Company’s operations and financial condition. Other companies in the retail industry may calculate these non-GAAP measures differently such that the Company’s calculation may not be directly comparable.
