RadioShack Reports Financial Results for First Quarter 2013 CEO Joseph C. Magnacca Says 100 Day Plan is On Track

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013, and Joseph C. Magnacca, chief executive officer, remarked on the initial priorities and initiatives underway.

Mr. Magnacca said, "In the few weeks that I have been with the company, I have distilled several key learnings that have led me to focus on an initial set of priorities to begin driving our turnaround:  building the right management team, reinvigorating the store experience, and jumpstarting our powerful brand.  While I inherited an experienced management team, there were a couple of important roles to fill. Last week, we announced the hiring of a new chief marketing officer and a new senior vice president of store concepts."

Mr. Magnacca continued, "I have also studied the existing retail format and store experience and believe there is a significant opportunity to refresh and improve how we present the brand, how we deliver on our brand promise, and how our customer experiences shopping with us. I know we have some gaps and improvements that need to take place.  We are rolling out a new brand image, and you will start seeing changes in our branding and advertising soon.  For our physical stores, work is underway and will begin with remodeling strategic New York City locations with a new look and feel over the next few weeks. This work will also touch our online and mobile channels over time so our customers receive a compelling, continuous and seamless experience however and whenever they shop with us. So, we're making good progress and the 100 day plan is on track.

"RadioShack has a uniquely strong franchise.  We have a powerful brand that has stood the test of time over nine decades and has a large, loyal customer following. We have strong relationships with leading vendors and a portfolio of trusted private brands that offer highly innovative technology products. We have a vast network of more than 4,300 company-operated stores and approximately 1,000 dealer outlets across the U.S. We have an established international presence in more than 25 countries, including 270 company-operated stores in Mexico. Most importantly, we have approximately 30,000 employees who are genuinely focused on delivering solutions for our customers."

Mr. Magnacca concluded, "I believe in this brand. I am confident that we can renew its relevancy and expand the loyal customer base that chooses to shop with us every day. We are building a compelling long-term strategic vision and plan that plays to our strengths and is centered around the customer. We believe there is an opportunity to drive sales growth over time in each of our platforms: mobility, signature and consumer electronics. The pace of our initiatives will vary, but each of the initiatives will contribute to bringing RadioShack back to the forefront of our customers' minds and to improving our financial performance and profitability." 

FIRST QUARTER SUMMARY

  • Total net sales and operating revenues were $849 million, compared to $913 million last year.  Comparable store sales were down 5.7%.  Our signature platform generated the fifth consecutive quarter of sales growth in our U.S. company-operated stores.
  • Gross profit was $337 million, compared with $370 million last year.  Gross profit performance was negatively impacted by a decline in postpaid units sold versus last year.
  • Gross margin rate excluding our postpaid wireless business improved.  Gross margin rate in total was 40% of net sales, a decline of 80 basis points versus last year, and was negatively impacted by an increase in the mix of higher-priced smartphones that have an overall lower margin rate.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $338 million, or 40% of net sales, compared with $345 million last year. The decrease of $7 million was driven primarily by one-time benefits this year.
  • Operating loss was $19 million, compared to operating income of $7 million last year.
  • Net loss was $43 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $8 million last year.  Net loss would have been $35 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, excluding the Target Mobile centers that contributed net loss of $8.5 million to the consolidated net loss.
  • RadioShack ceased operating the Target Mobile centers prior to March 31, 2013.  Results for this segment have been classified as discontinued operations in the financial statements.
  • The company continues to have a strong balance sheet and total liquidity of $820 million at the end of the quarter. The company repurchased $70.5 million in principal value of the 2013 Convertible Notes during the first quarter.

CASH, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL SPENDING

The company ended the first quarter with total liquidity of $820 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $435 million and $385 million of available credit under the $450 million asset-based revolving credit facility that expires in January 2016.

During the quarter, the company repurchased $70.5 million in principal value of the 2013 Convertible Notes due August 1, 2013, for a total purchase price of $69.5 million.

The company's total debt was $712 million at March 31, 2013.  The 2013 Convertible Notes, which had a par value of $375 million when issued, had a remaining aggregate principal amount of $216 million at March 31, 2013.  The balance of the company's debt comes due between 2016 and 2019.

Capital spending totaled $5 million in the first quarter compared to $11 million last year.

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