PHILADELPHIA, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Destination Maternity Corporation (Nasdaq: DEST), the world's leading maternity apparel retailer, today announced operating results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, which ended March 31, 2013.  The Company's diluted earnings per share for its second quarter fiscal 2013 increased 16% compared to the prior year, and were at the top end of its January 31, 2013 earnings guidance range.  The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.1875 per share payable June 28, 2013, representing an increase of 7.1% compared to the Company's previous quarterly dividend amount.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

  • Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $5.9 million, an increase of 18% compared to net income of $5.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $0.44, an increase of 16% compared to $0.38 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  This second quarter fiscal 2013 diluted earnings per share performance was at the top end of the Company's prior guidance range of $0.38-$0.44 provided in its January 31, 2013 press release.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $13.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, a 6.6% increase compared to the $12.9 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined in the financial tables at the end of this press release.
  • Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased 2.1% to $134.9 million from $137.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  The decrease in sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to fiscal 2012 resulted primarily from decreased sales due to the closure of all of the Company's remaining leased departments within Babies"R"Us® stores during the month of October 2012, and decreased sales related to the Company's continued efforts to close underperforming stores, partially offset by an increase in comparable sales.  The net sales of $134.9 million for the second quarter were within the Company's guidance range of $134 to $138 million provided in January 2013.
  • Comparable sales (which include Internet sales) for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 1.6% compared to a comparable sales increase of 3.2% for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  The comparable sales increase of 1.6% during the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was within the Company's guidance range for a comparable sales increase of between 0.5% and 3.5%.  Adjusting for the calendar timing shift, as described later in this press release, the Company's adjusted comparable sales increased 2.4% for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and increased 0.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  The Company's Internet sales, which are included in the Company's comparable sales, increased 5% for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 on a reported basis (and increased 7% after adjusting for the calendar timing shift), on top of a 39% increase in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

First Six Months of Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

  • Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2013 was $9.7 million, a 34% increase compared to net income of $7.2 million for the first six months of fiscal 2012.  Diluted earnings per share for the first six months of fiscal 2013 was $0.73, a 33% increase compared to $0.55 for the first six months of fiscal 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $24.5 million for the first six months of fiscal 2013, a 15% increase compared to the $21.2 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of fiscal 2012. 
  • Net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2013 decreased 1.5% to $270.1 million from $274.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2012.  The decrease in sales for the first six months of fiscal 2013 compared to fiscal 2012 resulted primarily from decreased sales due to the closure of all of the Company's remaining leased departments within Babies"R"Us® stores during the month of October 2012, and decreased sales related to the Company's continued efforts to close underperforming stores, partially offset by an increase in comparable sales.
  • Comparable sales (which include Internet sales) for the first six months of fiscal 2013 increased 1.9% compared to a comparable sales decrease of 0.6% for the first six months of fiscal 2012.  Adjusting for the calendar timing shift, the Company's adjusted comparable sales increased 3.1% for the first six months of fiscal 2013 and decreased 1.6% for the first six months of fiscal 2012.  The Company's Internet sales increased 11% for the first six months of fiscal 2013, on top of a 35% increase for the first six months of fiscal 2012.

Financing and Related Activities

  • On April 3, 2013, the Company repaid the remaining $1.8 million principal amount of its debt that existed at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  Giving effect to this $1.8 million debt repayment, the Company currently has no debt outstanding.
  • The Company's Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.1875 per share, payable June 28, 2013 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 7, 2013.  The dividend reflects an  increase of 7.1%, to a $0.75 per share annual dividend rate from the previous $0.70 annual dividend rate (previous quarterly dividend amount of $0.175 per share).

Retail Locations

The tables below summarize store opening and closing activity for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2013 and 2012, as well as the Company's store, total retail location and total international franchised location count at the end of each fiscal period.  In connection with the Company's new broad-based partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and its subsidiary, Buy Buy Baby, Inc., the Company discontinued operation of its 124 remaining leased departments in Babies"R"Us stores in late October 2012 and began to open leased departments in select buybuy BABY® stores.  The decrease in leased department locations at the end of March 2013 compared to March 2012 predominantly reflects this change of partners in October 2012.  According to Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.'s latest public disclosure, as of April 10, 2013 there are 83 buybuy BABY stores.  As of March 31, 2013, the Company operates leased departments in 14 of these stores.  Over time, the Company expects to significantly increase the number of buybuy BABY stores in which it has a maternity apparel leased department.

Commentary

Ed Krell, Chief Executive Officer of Destination Maternity Corporation, noted, "We are pleased with our continued positive momentum in delivering increases in earnings and comparable sales during the second quarter, despite very unfavorable weather conditions for the month of March.  Our second quarter fiscal 2013 diluted earnings per share of $0.44 were 16% higher than last year's second quarter diluted earnings of $0.38 per share, and were at the top end of our prior earnings guidance range of $0.38 to $0.44 per share that we provided in our January 31, 2013 press release.  This represents our third consecutive quarter of achieving both a comparable sales increase and a significant increase in earnings over the prior year, showing the continued progress we have made with our sales initiatives, while maintaining strong operational and expense discipline.  Our progress in improving our comparable sales results can be seen by our adjusted comparable sales increases of 2.4% for the second quarter and 3.1% for the first six months of fiscal 2013, both adjusted for the calendar timing shift as described later in this press release.      

"Our total sales of $134.9 million for the second quarter were within our sales guidance range of $134 to $138 million provided in our January 31 press release, primarily due to our reported comparable sales increase of 1.6%, which was within our guidance range for a comparable sales increase of between 0.5% and 3.5% for the quarter.  We believe that our sales for the month of March and for the second quarter as a whole were negatively impacted by unseasonably cold weather in March 2013 throughout many regions of the United States, especially compared to the significantly warmer Spring-like weather of March 2012.  Nonetheless, we still were able to deliver sales within our guidance range which, combined with our continued tight management of expenses, enabled us to achieve earnings results at the top end of our guidance range."

Financing and Related Activities

"We continue to use our strong free cash flow to generate shareholder value.  In April 2013 we repaid the remaining $1.8 million principal amount of our debt.  This completes a dramatic decrease in our financial leverage through use of our operating cash flow, with our total debt decreasing from $118 million to $0 over the past six and a half years.  Given our strong balance sheet, with the complete repayment of our outstanding debt, and our strong projected cash flow, we believe the total return to our stockholders will be further enhanced by increasing our regular quarterly cash dividend.  As a result, our Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.1875 per share payable June 28, 2013, which represents a 7.1% increase from our previous quarterly dividend rate of $0.175 per share and an annual dividend rate of $0.75 per share compared to our previous annual rate of $0.70 per share."

Guidance for Fiscal 2013

"Looking forward, we are confident that we can continue to improve our sales performance and position our Company for future growth, by continuing to enhance our merchandise assortments, merchandise presentation, store environment and customer experience, and by continuing to focus on our strategic plan as summarized in our five key goals and strategic objectives discussed later under "Company Strategy."  

"Our financial guidance for the full year fiscal 2013 is as follows:

  • Net sales in the $535 to $542 million range, representing a projected sales change of between a decrease of 1.2% and an increase of 0.1% compared to fiscal 2012 net sales of $541.5 million.  This sales guidance range is based on a projected comparable sales increase of between 1.5% and 3.0%.  
  • Gross margin for fiscal 2013 is expected to increase between 50 and 80 basis points compared to fiscal 2012.
  • Total selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses are planned to be modestly lower to nearly flat compared to fiscal 2012 in dollar terms and nearly flat compared to fiscal 2012 as a percentage of net sales.  The projected SG&A expenses for the full year reflect increased marketing expenses, additions of talent to drive sales, and increased variable incentive compensation expense, as well as inflationary expense increases, partially offset by continued tight expense controls and additional cost reductions.
  • Operating income in the $35.7 to $38.6 million range, a projected increase of between 8% and 17% compared to fiscal 2012 operating income of $33.1 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share of between $1.61 and $1.74 per share for fiscal 2013, a projected increase of between 10% and 19% compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.46 per share for fiscal 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA in the $52.6 to $55.5 million range, a projected increase of between 5% and 11% compared to the fiscal 2012 Adjusted EBITDA of $49.9 million.
  • Open 15 to 18 new stores during the year, including 9 to 10 new multi-brand Destination Maternity stores, and close approximately 33 to 41 stores, with 12 to 14 of these planned store closings related to openings of new Destination Maternity stores.
  • Capital expenditures planned at between $16 and $20 million compared to fiscal 2012 capital expenditures of $9.3 million.  After deducting projected tenant construction allowance payments to us from store landlords, the Company expects net cash outlay for capital projects to be between $13.0 million and $16.5 million, compared to $6.1 million in fiscal 2012.  Our planned capital expenditures include significant investments for store enhancements, as well as continued investments in systems, distribution center efficiency projects, and new stores.
  • Inventory at fiscal 2013 year end planned to be approximately 3% to 6% lower than fiscal 2012 year end.
  • Given these assumptions, the Company plans to generate free cash flow (defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures) of between $25 and $33 million for the full year fiscal 2013, a slight increase compared to prior guidance of between $24 and $33 million, and a projected decrease from fiscal 2012 free cash flow of $33.4 million due to higher planned capital expenditures.  Based on the Company's new current quarterly dividend rate of $0.1875 per share, the dividend will use approximately $9.8 million of cash flow for fiscal 2013, and uses approximately $10.1 million on a pro forma annualized basis.

"Our financial guidance for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 is as follows:

  • Net sales in the $138 to $142 million range.
  • A projected comparable sales increase of 2% to 5% on a reported basis.
  • Diluted earnings per share of between $0.56 and $0.64 per share, a projected increase of between 8% and 23% compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.52 for the third quarter of fiscal 2012."

Company Strategy

Mr. Krell added, "As we plan and execute our business for both this year and beyond, we continue to be guided by our five key goals and strategic objectives:

1.  Be a profitable global leader in the maternity apparel business, treating all our partners and stakeholders with respect and fairness.

2.  Increase the profitability of our U.S. business, focusing on the following:

a.  Increase comparable sales, through continued improvement of merchandise assortments, merchandise presentation and customer experience, providing a more shoppable store environment for our customers, and through enhanced marketing and advertising. 

b.  Reduce our expenditures and continue to be more efficient in operating our business—streamline, simplify and focus.

c.  Continue to expand our multi-brand Destination Maternity store chain where ROI hurdles are met, with the goal of operating fewer but larger stores over time; and

d.  Continue to close underperforming stores.

3.  In addition to achieving increased comparable sales, we aim to grow our sales where we can do so profitably, including the following areas of focus:

a.  International expansion.

b.  Potential growth of our leased department and licensed relationships.

c.  Increased utilization of the Internet to drive sales, targeting both increased direct Internet sales and enhanced web marketing initiatives to drive store sales.

d.  Selective new store openings and relocations in the U.S. and Canada; and

e.  Continued focus on enhancing our overall customer relationship, including our marketing partnership programs.

4.  Focus on generating free cash flow to drive increased shareholder value.

5.  Maintain and intensify our primary focus on delivering great maternity apparel product and service in each of our brands and store formats, to serve the maternity apparel customer like no one else can."

Mr. Krell concluded, "While we recognize that over the past four to five years we have faced the dual challenges of a deep recession followed by a weak recovery, as well as a 9% decrease in annual births in the United States since 2007, we remain focused on driving improvement in our sales performance through initiatives to enhance our merchandise assortments, merchandise presentation, store environment and customer experience.  We are pleased with our improved sales trend over the past three quarters, and we are confident in our ability to continue to manage our business through this uncertain consumer environment, to continue to improve our sales performance, and to continue to make progress towards our key corporate goals." 

Days Adjustment Calendar Shift

Destination Maternity reports sales on a calendar quarter basis, rather than on a "4-5-4 retail fiscal calendar" where each fiscal week and fiscal quarter starts on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday.  Thus, for each calendar quarter, there is a "days adjustment calendar shift" which may help or hurt reported calendar quarter sales and comparable sales due to different days of the week typically contributing more sales than other days of the week.  In order to quantify and eliminate the effect on reported comparable sales results of the "days adjustment calendar shift", the Company also presents comparable sales on an adjusted basis.  For the second quarter of fiscal 2013, adjusted comparable sales were measured for the period Tuesday January 1, 2013 through Sunday March 31, 2013 compared to the period Tuesday January 3, 2012 through Sunday April 1, 2012.  The calendar shift unfavorably impacted the Company's reported comparable sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 by 0.8 percentage points, primarily as a result of having one less day in the quarter versus the second quarter of fiscal 2012, due to 2012 being a leap year.  Thus, adjusted comparable sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 2.4%, compared to the reported comparable sales increase of 1.6%.  For the first six months of fiscal 2013, adjusted comparable sales were measured for the period Monday October 1, 2012 through Sunday March 31, 2013 compared to the period Monday October 3, 2011 through Sunday April 1, 2012.  The calendar shift unfavorably impacted the Company's reported comparable sales for the first six months of fiscal 2013 by 1.2 percentage points, primarily as a result of: (1) having one less Saturday versus the first six months of fiscal 2012, and (2) having one less day versus the first six months of fiscal 2012 due to the leap year in 2012.  Thus, adjusted comparable sales for the first six months of fiscal 2013 increased 3.1%, compared to the reported comparable sales increase of 1.9%. For the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2012, the Company estimates the calendar shift favorably impacted its reported comparable sales by approximately 2.5 and 1.0 percentage points, respectively.
