BURLINGTON, N.J., Aug. 27, 2020 (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 second quarter ended August 1, 2020.

Michael O’Sullivan, CEO, stated, “The second quarter had some highs and some lows. The pace of our re-opening sales significantly exceeded our expectations, and we turned our aged spring merchandise very rapidly. This enabled us to go back into the market and take advantage of great merchandise availability. But we were not able to get these fresh receipts to our stores as quickly as we needed them; our in-store inventories declined and our sales trend fell off dramatically in the back half of June. As we have re-built our store inventory levels over the last several weeks, we have seen significant improvement in our sales trend.”

Mr. O’Sullivan continued, “We expect our trend to strengthen as we continue to replenish our store inventory levels but we see a lot of risk in Q3. In this uncertain environment, we plan to manage our business conservatively. We have plenty of liquidity and we will use this to support opportunistic buys of fall merchandise and of pack and hold inventory that we will flow to stores next year.” 

Fiscal 2020 Second Quarter Operating Results (for the 13 week period ended August 1, 2020 compared with the 13 week period ended August 3, 2019)

  • Total sales decreased 39% to $1,010 million. Sales in Re-opened Stores (defined below) decreased 14% from the date of their re-opening to the end of the second quarter.
  • Gross margin rate was 45.8% vs. last year’s rate of 41.4%. Low levels of clearance inventory in the second half of the quarter resulted in lower markdowns and the increase in gross margin for the quarter. Clearance markdowns during the second quarter were offset by the markdown reserve established in the first quarter. Product sourcing costs, which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A), were $72 million in the second quarter vs. $82 million in last year’s second quarter. Product sourcing costs include the costs of processing goods through our supply chain and buying costs.
  • SG&A decreased $40 million to $492 million for the second quarter of Fiscal 2020. Adjusted SG&A, as defined below, was $402 million vs. $441 million last year.
  • The effective tax rate was 57.4% vs. 11.6% in last year’s second quarter. The Adjusted Effective Tax Rate was 55.6% vs. last year’s second quarter Adjusted Effective Tax Rate of 12.8%.
  • Net income was a loss of $46.8 million, or ($0.71) per share vs. net income of $85 million, or $1.26 per share for the second quarter last year, and Adjusted Net Income represented a loss of $37 million, or ($0.56) per share vs. $91 million, or $1.36 per share last year. This decrease in Adjusted Net Income was due primarily to the significant decline in sales, which was driven by store closures and other disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Diluted shares outstanding amounted to 65.9 million at the end of the quarter compared with 67.3 million at the end of last year’s second quarter. The decrease was primarily the result of share repurchases under the Company’s share repurchase program, discussed in more detail below, as well as the Company’s stock-based compensation grants being anti-dilutive while in a net loss position. From the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2019 through the suspension of our share repurchase program announced on March 19, 2020, the Company repurchased approximately 0.8 million shares of its common stock under its share repurchase program.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $179 million from last year’s second quarter to ($9) million. Adjusted EBIT decreased $181 million below the prior year period to ($63) million. The decrease in Adjusted EBIT was driven by the same factors described above that drove the decline in Adjusted Net Income. 

First Six Months Fiscal 2020 Results

  • Total sales decreased 45% compared to the first six months of Fiscal 2019. Net (loss) income decreased 334% compared to the prior year period to $(381) million, or $(5.79) per share vs. $2.40 last year. Adjusted EBIT decreased by 340%, or $801 million compared to last year, to $(565) million. Adjusted Net (loss) Income of $(352) million was down 299% vs. last year, while Adjusted EPS was $(5.36) vs. $2.62 in the prior year period.

Inventory

  • Merchandise inventories were $608 million vs. $824 million last year, a 26% decrease. The decrease was driven by faster than expected clearance sell through during the first half of the quarter, delays in inventory replenishment, as well as conservative inventory plans due to uncertain consumer demand during the pandemic. Pack and hold inventory was 26% of total inventory at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 compared to 29% at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2019.

Liquidity

  • The Company ended the second quarter with $1,197 million in liquidity, including $1,077 million in unrestricted cash and $120 million in availability on its ABL facility. During the second quarter, the Company repaid $150 million on its $600 million ABL facility, with $250 million remaining outstanding at the end of the second quarter.

Share Repurchase Activity

  • The Company suspended its share repurchase program on March 19, 2020. As of the end of the second quarter, the Company’s share repurchase program, which remains suspended, had $348 million in remaining authorization. 

Sales in Re-Opened Stores

Due to the temporary closing of all its stores as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Company’s definition of comparable store sales is not meaningful this quarter. In order to provide a performance indicator for its stores as they reopen, the Company is temporarily reporting a new sales measure: Sales in Re-Opened Stores. Sales in Re-Opened Stores includes all stores that were opened prior to the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2019, and reports the sales increase or decrease of these stores for the days the stores were open in the current period against sales for the same days in the prior year.

Outlook

Given the uncertainty surrounding the pace of the recovery of consumer demand, the Company’s sales and earnings guidance for Fiscal 2020 (the 52-weeks ending January 30, 2021) remains suspended at this time. 

The following Fiscal 2020 guidance items have been re-issued or updated:

  • Capital expenditures, net of landlord allowances, are still expected to be approximately $260 million, which had been reduced at the end of the first quarter from the original outlook of $400 million;
  • The Company now expects to open 62 new stores, while relocating or closing 26 stores, for a total of 36 net new stores in Fiscal 2020. Two additional stores that were originally planned for Fiscal 2020 were shifted out to Fiscal 2021, bringing the total number of stores shifted out to next Fiscal year to 18 stores;
  • Depreciation & amortization, exclusive of favorable lease costs, is still expected to be approximately $230 million; and
  • Interest expense, net of non-cash interest of $24 million on convertible notes, is still expected to be approximately $80 million.

Publication of the Company’s 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility Report

The Company has released its second annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, which highlights the Company’s CSR efforts and focuses on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues of greatest importance to the Company’s stakeholders. Principally covering the Company’s Fiscal Year 2019, which ended on February 1, 2020, the report discloses the Company’s overall performance on a range of ESG issues and initiatives pertaining to Burlington’s associates, environmental impacts, supply chain, and governance and ethics, as well as the communities in which Burlington operates. The report was informed by several reporting frameworks, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) and the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as feedback from stakeholders to better understand which issues to prioritize and disclose. Burlington’s 2019 CSR report can be found at www.burlingtoninvestors.com/corporate-social-responsibility.

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 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 measure later in this document.

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

The following tables calculate the Company’s Adjusted Net (Loss) 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 (Loss) Income is defined as net (loss) income, exclusive of the following items if applicable: (i) net favorable lease costs; (ii) costs related to debt issuances and amendments; (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iv) impairment charges; (v) amounts related to certain litigation matters; (vi) non-cash interest expense on convertible notes; (vii) costs related to closing the e-commerce store; and (viii) other unusual, non-recurring or extraordinary expenses, losses, charges or gains, all of which are tax effected to arrive at Adjusted Net (Loss) Income.

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

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net (loss) 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) impairment charges; (vii) costs related to debt issuances and amendments; (viii) amounts related to certain litigation matters; (ix) costs related to closing the e-commerce store; and (x) other unusual, non-recurring or extraordinary expenses, losses, charges or gains.

Adjusted EBIT (or Adjusted Operating Margin) is defined as net (loss) 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) costs related to debt issuances and amendments; (viii) amounts related to certain litigation matters; (ix) costs related to closing the e-commerce store; and (x) 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, amounts related to certain litigation matters and costs related to closing the e-commerce store.

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 (g) in the table below).

The Company presents Adjusted Net (Loss) 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.
