NEW YORK--()--New York & Company, Inc. (NYSE:NWY), a specialty apparel chain with 466 retail stores, today announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 28, 2017.

“Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures”

Gregory Scott, New York & Company’s CEO stated: “In a rapidly changing retail environment, our fourth quarter results met the high-end of the updated outlook we issued in January and included a double-digit increase in eCommerce sales, strong results in our Eva Mendes Collection, and expansion in overall gross profit margin despite mall traffic declines that lowered sales. The year was highlighted by significant progress toward our four key initiatives that we believe position New York & Company to improve its traffic trend through growth in celebrity and sub-brands that are exclusive to us, the expansion of our loyalty program and the introduction of marketing events that resonate more closely with our consumer demographic. At the same time, our inventories were well controlled with a double-digit decline, as compared to last year, and we also continued to optimize our real estate footprint and drive expense and cost reductions as part of our continuing efforts under our Project Excellence program.

As we begin, 2017, we expect to accelerate our progress toward our goals with continued growth in celebrity and sub-brands that will include the introduction of a new celebrity partnership launching in early April. We will continue to drive growth in eCommerce by leveraging our omni-channel capabilities and expect to benefit from our expanding Private Label Credit Card Loyalty Program with increases in sales as well as significantly improved royalties under the terms of our new Private label Credit Card agreement. We are also extremely pleased to have taken over several competitor locations with flexible lease terms in some of the best malls in the country. These locations were obtained at attractive occupancy rates, requiring low capital investment and are expected to generate high returns as we will showcase a more expansive selection of our Eva Mendes Collection, which has seen a double-digit increase in sales since we began the collaboration in 2013.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Results (13-weeks ended January 28, 2017 compared to the 13-weeks ended January 30, 2016):

  • Net sales were $266.3 million, which included $5.4 million of royalty and related revenue from the new private label credit card agreement, as compared to $271.3 million in the prior year.
  • Comparable store sales decreased 0.4% as an increase in the Company’s eCommerce business, combined with royalty and related revenue from its new private label credit card agreement were more than offset by sales declines in store locations.
  • Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased 170 basis points to 27.4% versus the fiscal year 2015 fourth quarter gross profit percentage of 25.7%. This increase reflects $5.4 million in benefits from the new private label credit card agreement, product cost reductions and efficiencies from vendor negotiations related to the implementation of Project Excellence, as well as a 40 basis point improvement in the leverage of buying and occupancy costs, partially offset by increased season end product markdowns.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $82.3 million; however, this includes a $6.2 million legal reserve that the Company was required to establish relating to an ongoing trademark infringement case where the Company received an unfavorable judgment but is still in the process of vigorously defending. On a non-GAAP basis, selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding this reserve, were $76.1 million compared to non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses of $68.5 million in the prior year. This planned increase was primarily due to the following factors:
    • an increase of $2.6 million in marketing expense, $1.3 million of which was due to the shift in classification of private label credit card credits to revenue and $1.3 million of which was due to investments in digital marketing to drive sales;
    • the elimination of $1.1 million in insurance credits and $1.8 million in performance-based compensation accrual reversals, which benefited the prior year by reducing the prior year’s expenses; and
    • a $0.8 million increase in variable expenses associated with the growth in eCommerce sales.
  • GAAP operating loss was $9.2 million, which included a non-GAAP charge of $6.2 million. Excluding the $6.2 million non-operating charge, adjusted operating loss was $3.0 million, compared to the prior year’s non-GAAP operating income of $1.3 million, which excluded $0.6 million of non-operating charges.
  • GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 was $10.0 million, or a loss of $0.16 per diluted share, as compared to the prior year’s breakeven results. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company’s fourth quarter 2016 adjusted net loss was $3.8 million, or a loss of $0.06 per diluted share. This compares to prior year’s fourth quarter, non-GAAP adjusted net income of $0.7 million, or earnings of $0.01 per diluted share.

Please refer to the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 5 of this press release, which delineates the non-operating charges for the three months ended January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016. GAAP is defined as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States.

  • Total quarter-end inventory decreased 11.1%, as compared to the end of last year’s fourth quarter, reflecting lower levels of on-hand inventory and significantly lower levels of inventory in transit. Inventory per average store decreased 6.5% with on-hand inventory approximately flat and a decrease in inventory in transit.
  • Capital spending for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 was $5.0 million, as compared to $5.8 million in last year’s fourth quarter, primarily reflecting continued spend on the Company’s information technology infrastructure and remodeling/refreshing existing stores.
  • The Company closed 11 New York & Company stores and 6 Outlet stores during the fourth quarter, ending the fourth quarter with 466 stores, including 123 Outlet stores and 2.4 million selling square feet in operation.
  • The Company ended the quarter with $88.4 million of cash on-hand and no outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

Full Fiscal Year 2016 Results (52-weeks ended January 28, 2017 compared to the 52-weeks ended January 30, 2016):

  • Net sales were $929.1 million for fiscal year 2016, as compared to $950.1 million for fiscal year 2015. Comparable store sales decreased 0.7%, as compared to an increase of 3.1% in the prior fiscal year. GAAP operating loss was $15.4 million. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted operating loss was $9.7 million. This compares to a GAAP operating loss of $8.1 million and a non-GAAP, adjusted operating loss of $0.3 million for fiscal year 2015. Net loss was $17.3 million, or a loss of $0.27 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted net loss was $11.6 million, or a loss of $0.18 per diluted share. This compares to the prior fiscal year net loss of $10.1 million, or a loss of $0.16 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, prior fiscal year adjusted net loss was $2.3 million, or a loss of $0.04 per diluted share.

Please refer to the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in Exhibit 6 of this press release, which delineates the non-operating charges for the twelve months ended January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016. GAAP is defined as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States.

Share Repurchase Activity:

  • During the fourth quarter, the Company repurchased 53,925 shares of its common stock and has repurchased a total of 476,645 shares under its existing share repurchase program. As of the end of the fourth quarter, the Company had approximately $3.9 million of total availability remaining under the Company’s share repurchase program. Any future share repurchases are expected to be funded using the Company’s available cash.

Outlook:

Regarding expectations for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, the Company is providing the following guidance:

  • Net sales are expected to decline in the low single-digit percentage range, reflecting decreased store count, partially offset by approximately $5.8 million of royalty and other revenue from the new private label credit card agreement and growth in the eCommerce business.
  • Comparable store sales are expected to range from low single-digit negative to flat on a percentage basis. This range reflects a higher penetration of sales late in the quarter with the shift of the Easter selling period to later in the quarter.
  • Gross margin is expected to be up significantly reflecting benefits from the Company’s new private label credit card agreement, reductions in product costs and agent expenses resulting from Project Excellence, and reductions in occupancy costs due to the Company’s aggressive real estate negotiations, partially offset by increased shipping costs associated with the growing omni-channel business.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses on a GAAP basis, which have historically benefited from reductions due to the success of Project Excellence, are expected to increase by 250 basis points to 300 basis points versus the prior year’s first quarter. While the Company continues to reduce home office and field payroll costs, these reductions have been offset by the following factors:
    • The shift in benefits from the Company’s new private label credit card agreement to revenue, as compared to the prior year which reflected these benefits as a reduction of marketing expense;
    • Investments in marketing to drive incremental eCommerce sales;
    • Increases in selling expenses largely driven by increases in eCommerce variable costs; and
    • Performance-based compensation accruals, which were completely eliminated last year based upon operating results.
  • Operating results on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 are expected to improve from the prior year, reflecting a loss of $2 million to $5 million. These results reflect the anticipated impact of a highly promotional and challenging retail environment given soft brick-and-mortar traffic trends. Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) is expected to be positive during the quarter adding to the Company’s strong working capital position.

Additional Outlook:

  • Total inventory at the end of the first quarter is expected to be down in the low to mid-single-digit percentage as compared to the prior year first quarter.
  • The Company continues to be very aggressive in its rationalization of its real estate portfolio in an effort to reduce occupancy costs. These efforts also include maintaining a highly flexible real estate portfolio with approximately 50% of its leases expiring in less than 12 months and more than 60% in less than 2 years.
  • Capital expenditures for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 are projected to be approximately $5 million to $6 million, as compared to $1.9 million of capital expenditures in the first quarter of last year, reflecting continued investments in the Company’s information technology and omni-channel infrastructure, and real estate remodel/refresh activity. For the full year, capital expenditures are expected to be below $20 million.
  • Depreciation expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 is estimated to be approximately $6 million and the full year is expected to be approximately $24 million.
  • During the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, the Company expects to open 1 Outlet store, remodel/refresh 3 existing stores and close 6 New York & Company stores. In addition, the Company expects to open 5 new stores in competitor locations under short-term leases, which require little capital investment.
  • For fiscal year 2017, the Company expects to open 2 new Outlet stores, remodel/refresh 8 existing stores, open 6 to 10 stores in existing competitor retail space under flexible leases and close 36 stores, including 3 Outlet stores, ending the fiscal year with roughly 440 stores, including 122 Outlet stores, and approximately 2.2 million selling square feet.

Comparable Store Sales:

A store is included in the comparable store sales calculation after it has completed 13 full fiscal months of operations from the store's opening date or once it has been reopened after remodeling if the gross square footage did not change by more than 20%. Sales from the Company's eCommerce store and private label credit card royalties and related revenue are included in comparable store sales.
