RadioShack Reports Financial Results for Period Ended May 3, 2014

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) today reported results for the period ended May 3, 2014.

Joseph C. Magnacca, chief executive officer, said, "Overall, our first quarter performance was challenged by an industry-wide decline in consumer electronics and a soft mobility market which impacted traffic trends throughout the quarter. In particular, our mobility business was weak due to lackluster consumer interest in the current handset assortment and increased promotional activities across the industry including the wireless carriers. This resulted in disappointing sales and gross margin performance."

"Even in this environment, we are making progress on our turnaround strategy. We are building the pipeline of new products that will bring differentiation and newness to our stores in the form of high-margin private brand and exclusive items, including those from new partnerships like Quirky and PCH." Mr. Magnacca continued. "Our concept stores continue to drive strong sales growth, and we have begun to execute our 100-store remodel program to scale the successful components of our concept stores across our network.  We have continued to drive our new 'Do It Together' brand campaign, which highlights one of our greatest strengths, our store associates and the knowledge and solutions they provide to our customers every day."

Mr. Magnacca concluded, "We are also successfully reducing our costs, with a particular focus on removing expenses that do not impact the customer experience, and have taken steps to lower our corporate headcount, leverage technology, and reduce discretionary expenses. Our entire team is focused on executing our vision, adapting to the environment, managing our balance sheet, and driving sustainable change."

Note: All comparisons are versus the same period of the prior fiscal year unless otherwise noted.

13 WEEKS ENDED MAY 3, 2014, SUMMARY

  • Total net sales and operating revenues were $736.7 million, compared to $848.4 million last year. Comparable store sales were down 14% driven by traffic declines and soft performance in the mobility business.
  • Consolidated gross profit was $268.7 million, or 36.5% of net sales, compared with $340.9 million last year, or 40.2% of net sales. The decline in gross profit and gross margin rate was primarily driven by aggressive price competition in our current postpaid and prepaid handset offerings.
  • Consolidated selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $335.9 million, or 45.6% of net sales, compared with $333.7 million last year, or 39.3% of net sales. This represents a 6.3 percentage point increase as a percentage of net sales and operating revenues for the 13 weeks ended May 3, 2014, which was driven by declining sales volumes period over period.  The three months ended April 30, 2013, included a gain on the sale of a building of $2.4 million.
  • Operating loss for the first quarter was $81.0 million compared to operating loss of $10.3 million last year. On an adjusted basis, operating loss was $82.0 million excluding certain non-cash and one-time reserves on inventory and impairments of fixed assets.
  • Loss from continuing operations was $98.3 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $23.3 million last year. On an adjusted basis, loss from continuing operations was $99.3 million, which compares to an adjusted loss from continuing operations of $26.5 million last year.
  • The Company closed 22 stores in fiscal 2015 and expects to close up to 200 stores which will be selected based on location, area demographics, lease life and financial performance.

CASH, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL SPENDING

The Company ended the quarter with total liquidity of $423.7 million at May 3, 2014, including $61.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $361.9 million of availability under the 2018 Credit Agreement. This availability is net of letters of credit totaling $67.8 million outstanding at May 3, 2014.  The Company's total debt was $614.5 million at May 3, 2014, which matures between 2018 and 2019. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company drew on the 2018 Credit Facility for general corporate purposes. As of June 9th, we had outstanding borrowings of $35.0 million under the 2018 Credit Facility.  We expect to further utilize the 2018 Credit Facility during the remainder of the year.

NEW FINANCIAL CALENDAR

As previously announced, the Company has aligned its fiscal year end to a traditional 52-week retail calendar, with the fiscal year ending on the Saturday closest to January 31st. This format is used by the majority of retailers today. We believe changing the Company's year end will benefit the investment community as it will allow for easier comparability between the Company and its peers. It will also allow the management team to more efficiently track and measure the Company's performance during the year.

As a result of this change, the Company we have a stub period between January 1, 2014, and February 1, 2014, that will be identified as Fiscal Year 2014 which will be reported separately in our Form 10-Q for the first quarter of Fiscal 2015. Fiscal Year 2015 will run from February 2, 2014, through January 31, 2015.

CONFERENCE CALL

RadioShack will host a live webcast of its investor conference call at 10 a.m. EDT today. The Internet broadcast may be accessed from the investor relations home page of the RadioShack corporate website at http://IR.RadioShackCorporation.com.

NON-GAAP DISCLOSURES

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating loss and adjusted loss from continuing operations have each been adjusted to exclude specifically identified certain items in the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that providing comparisons for these measures, adjusted for the items shown in the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information to the reader in assessing our operating performance. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the business for comparable periods; however, they are not intended to replace the comparable GAAP measures.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are provided in the accompanying schedules.
