  • Total revenues from continuing operations increased $2.0 million to $234.2 million, compared with $232.2 million in the prior year period.
  • EBITDA, excluding stock-based compensation, improved $2.8 million to a loss of $4.0 million, compared with a loss of $6.8 million in the prior year period.

CARLE PLACE, N.Y.--()--1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLWS), the leading gourmet food and floral gift provider for all occasions, today reported total net revenues from continuing operations increased $2.0 million to $234.2 million for its fiscal 2016 third quarter ended March 27, 2016, compared with total revenues from continuing operations of $232.2 million in the prior year period. The revenue increase was driven by the Company’s Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets segment. In addition, the Company’s Consumer Floral and BloomNet business segments performed ahead of expectations given the impact of the Sunday day-placement of the Valentine’s Day holiday.

“We remain laser focused enhancing our customers’ experience by leveraging technology to help them act on their thoughtfulness and deliver smiles. We were thrilled, earlier this month, when we were featured in the keynote address at Facebook’s annual “f8”

Gross profit margin for the quarter increased 30 basis points to 41.3 percent, compared with 41.0 percent in the prior year period, while operating expenses improved 110 basis points to 46.9 percent of total net revenues compared with 48.0 percent in the prior year period. This reflected the Company’s focus on leveraging its business platform to achieve cost reductions, including increased benefits achieved through the effective integration of Harry & David.

EBITDA, excluding stock-based compensation, improved $2.8 million to a loss of $4.0 million, compared with a loss of $6.8 million in the prior year period. The EBITDA loss, excluding stock-based compensation, improved slightly compared with the prior year period’s Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $4.1 million. Net loss attributable to the Company improved $1.4 million to a loss of $9.1 million, or ($0.14) per share, compared with a loss of $10.5 million, or ($0.16) per share, in the prior year period. On an Adjusted* basis, the prior year period’s net loss was $8.5 million, or ($0.13) per share. The losses in the quarter reflect the seasonality of the Company’s Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets segment which records the majority of its sales and all of its profits in the Company’s fiscal second quarter which includes the calendar year-end holiday period. (*See tables attached to the end of this press release for reconciliation of all adjustments to applicable GAAP results).

Jim McCann, CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, said, “We are very pleased with the results of the quarter. Both our Consumer Floral and BloomNet segments achieved better than anticipated revenues and year-over-year increases in bottom-line contribution. In addition, our Gourmet Food and Gift Basket segment achieved solid revenue growth despite continued weak retail traffic impacting our Fannie May stores.

McCann also noted that several recent announcements illustrated the Company’s reputation as a leading innovator. “We remain laser focused enhancing our customers’ experience by leveraging technology to help them act on their thoughtfulness and deliver smiles. We were thrilled, earlier this month, when we were featured in the keynote address at Facebook’s annual “f8” developers’ conference as one of their first partners to deploy new “bot” technology to place gift orders from within the Facebook Messenger service. In addition, we announced today our partnership with Amazon where we will be one the first ecommerce companies to enable our customers to place orders via voice commands on Amazon’s Alexa platform. These relationships speak to the reach of our portfolio of great gifting brands and our willingness to embrace new innovations that help drive enhanced customer experience.”

During the fiscal third quarter, the Company attracted 821,000 new customers. Approximately 1.8 million customers placed orders during the quarter, of whom 55.3 percent were repeat customers. This reflects the Company’s successful efforts to engage with its customers with truly original product designs and relevant marketing programs designed to enhance customer experience and solve for all of their celebratory and gifting occasions.

The Company provides selected financial results for its Consumer Floral, BloomNet wire service and Gourmet Foods and Gift Baskets business segments in the tables attached to this release and as follows:

SEGMENT RESULTS FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS:

  • 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Consumer Floral: During the fiscal 2016 third quarter, revenues in this segment were $113.2 million, a decrease of 3.0 percent, compared with $116.7 million in the prior year period reflecting the impact of the Sunday placement of the Valentine holiday partially offset by the shift of the Easter holiday into the quarter. On a comparable basis, revenues for the quarter in this segment were essentially flat, year-over-year, when adjusted for the sale of two small, non-core businesses that provided $3.4 million in revenue in the prior year period. Gross margin increased 140 basis points to 40.6 percent, compared with 39.2 percent in the prior year period. Gross margin benefited from enhanced sourcing and logistics as well as strong customer satisfaction metrics. These factors, combined with a continued focus on efficient marketing programs, resulted in a contribution margin increase of $1.2 million, or 9.5 percent, to $13.7 million, compared with $12.6 million in the prior year period.

    BloomNet Wire Service: Revenues for the quarter were $22.5 million, a decrease of 1.9 percent compared with $23.0 million in the prior year period reflecting the impact of the Sunday placement of the Valentine holiday somewhat offset by the shift of Easter into the quarter. Gross margin for the quarter increased 20 basis points to 55.0 percent, compared with 54.8 percent in the prior year period. This, combined with enhanced operating cost leverage, resulted in an increase of 6.3 percent in segment contribution margin to $7.8 million, compared with $7.3 million in the prior year period.
  • Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets: Revenues for the fiscal third quarter increased 6.6 percent to $99.1 million, compared with $93.0 million in the prior year period. Compared with adjusted prior year revenues that include $3.4 million related to the impact of the Fannie May warehouse fire on Thanksgiving Day 2014, the year-over-year increase was 2.9 percent. Gross margin for the quarter declined 120 basis points to 38.4 percent, compared with 39.6 percent in the prior year period, primarily reflecting continued weak retail traffic in the Company’s Fannie May stores. Segment contribution margin was a loss of $6.8 million, compared with a loss of $5.4 million in the prior year period. On an adjusted basis, including the impact of the aforementioned Fannie May fire, the prior year period segment contribution loss was $4.5 million. The increased segment contribution loss reflects a lower gross margin and higher marketing expenses in the period that were only partially offset by revenue growth.

Company Guidance:

Based on its results through the first nine months of fiscal 2016, the Company is reiterating its guidance for revenue growth and updating its guidance for bottom-line results as follows:

  • Consolidated revenue growth for the year in a range of four-to-five percent, compared with revenues of $1.12 billion reported for fiscal 2015.
  • EBITDA growth in a range of 5-to-7 percent and EPS growth of approximately 30 percent, compared with pro forma fiscal 2015 Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $80.5 million and pro forma fiscal 2015 Adjusted EPS(1) of $0.33 per diluted share, respectively.
  • The Company expects to achieve synergy cost savings of $20 million over three years related to its integration of the Harry & David business.
  • The Company reiterated its guidance for Free Cash Flow for the year of approximately $35 million.

Definitions:

EBITDA: Net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization. Free Cash Flow: net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. Category contribution margin: earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, before the allocation of corporate overhead expenses. (1)Pro forma fiscal 2015 EBITDA and EPS adjusts for seasonal losses associated with the Harry & David business in its fiscal 2015 first quarter which were not captured in the Company’s fiscal 2015 results due to the close of the acquisition on September 30, 2014. The Company presents EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, Comparable EBITDA and Comparable EPS and Free Cash Flow because it considers such information meaningful supplemental measures of its performance and believes such information is frequently used by the investment community in the evaluation of similarly situated companies. The Company also uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as factors used to determine the total amount of incentive compensation available to be awarded to executive officers and other employees. The Company's credit agreement uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to measure compliance with covenants such as interest coverage and debt incurrence. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by the Company to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are: (a) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs; (b) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company's debts; and (c) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should only be used on a supplemental basis combined with GAAP results when evaluating the Company's performance.

(a)   Corporate expenses consist of the Company’s enterprise shared service cost centers, and include, among other items, Information Technology, Human Resources, Accounting and Finance, Legal, Executive and Customer Service Center functions, as well as Stock-Based Compensation. In order to leverage the Company’s infrastructure, these functions are operated under a centralized management platform, providing support services throughout the organization. The costs of these functions, other than those of the Customer Service Center, which are allocated directly to the above categories based upon usage, are included within corporate expenses as they are not directly allocable to a specific segment.
 
(b) In order to present comparable information, the financial information for the three and nine months ended March 27, 2016 is being presented on a pro-forma basis to give effect to the Harry & David acquisition as if it had been completed on June 30, 2014. This pro-forma information has been prepared by management for informational purposes only, and is not necessarily indicative of or intended to represent the results that would have been achieved had the acquisition been consummated as of this date. The operating results of Harry & David for the three months ended September 27, 2015 do not reflect any operating efficiencies and/or cost savings that the Company may have achieved with respect to the combined companies, but have been adjusted to give effect to non-recurring items that are directly attributable to the acquisition.
