CARLE PLACE, N.Y.--()--1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLWS), the world’s leading florist and gift shop, today reported revenues from continuing operations grew 29.3 percent to $232.2 million for its fiscal 2015 third quarter, ended March 29, 2015, compared with revenues from continuing operations of $179.6 million in the prior year period. The Company said the increase in revenues primarily reflected contributions from Harry & David which the Company acquired on September 30, 2014.

“Best Companies to Work for in New York State”

Gross profit margin for the third quarter was 41.0 percent, consistent with the prior year period. Operating expense ratio was 48.0 percent, up 540 basis points, compared with 42.6 percent in the prior year period, primarily reflecting increased operating expenses associated with Harry & David.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter, excluding stock-based compensation, was a loss of $4.1 million, compared with $3.3 million in the prior year period, reflecting the seasonal losses associated with Harry & David. Excluding Harry & David, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding stock-based compensation, increased 95.3 percent to $6.5 million, reflecting contributions from the Company’s Gourmet Foods and Gift Baskets segment and continued strong year-over-year performance in its Consumer Floral segment. Adjusted Net Loss* from continuing operations attributable to the Company was $8.5 million, or ($0.13) per share, compared with a net loss of $1.4 million, or ($0.02) per share in the prior year period. Excluding Harry & David, Adjusted Net Income* attributable to the Company and Adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $342,000 and $0.01 per diluted share, respectively.

Reported EBITDA loss, excluding stock-based compensation, was $6.8 million, compared with $3.3 million in the prior year period.

Jim McCann, CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, said, “During the fiscal third quarter, we saw solid performance across all of our business segments while facing a number of headwinds, most notably the significant seasonality of the Harry & David business, the Saturday placement of the Valentine holiday and the lingering impacts of the Thanksgiving Day fire on our Fannie May Fine Chocolates business. Regarding Harry & David, during the third quarter, while the business generated an anticipated loss, we were pleased to see year-over-year improvements in both top and bottom-line results. As we continue our integration of Harry & David, we plan to build on this by leveraging our business platform, our growing family of gift brands and the millions of customers we serve across all of our business channels.” McCann noted that, excluding Harry & David, the Company’s Gourmet Foods and Gift Baskets segment achieved strong top and bottom-line growth during the quarter.

McCann also noted that the Company’s was pleased with the performance of its consumer floral business. “Valentine’s Day is always challenging because of its varying day placement and unpredictable winter weather. With that said, we achieved year-over-year growth in our gross profit margin and bottom-line contribution as we were able to largely mitigate the modestly lower order volumes related to the Saturday placement. We believe these results reflect the strength of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM brand and the expansion of our leadership position in the floral gifting space.”

During the fiscal third quarter, the Company attracted 815,000 new customers. Approximately 1.9 million customers placed orders during the quarter, of whom 56.4 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 deepen its relationships as their trusted Florist and Gift Shop for all of their celebratory 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 2015 third quarter, revenues in this segment were $116.7 million, down 4.5 percent, compared with $122.3 million in the prior year period reflecting the Saturday placement of the Valentine holiday during the quarter. Gross margin increased 30 basis points to 39.2 percent, compared with 38.9 percent in the prior year period. Gross margin benefited from enhanced sourcing and logistics as well as strong customer service metrics. Combined with efficient marketing programs, these factors resulted in a contribution margin increase of 12.5 percent to $12.6 million, compared with $11.2 million in the prior year period.
  • BloomNet Wire Service: Revenues for the quarter were $23.0 million, up 1.7 percent compared with $22.6 million in the prior year period. Gross margin for the quarter increased 150 basis points to 54.8 percent, compared with 53.3 percent in the prior year period, reflecting revenue mix, which included growth in sales of higher-margin services, such as web-marketing and directory advertising programs as well as pricing initiatives. As a result of these factors, segment contribution margin increased to $7.3 million, compared with $7.1 million in the prior year period.
  • Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets: Revenues for the fiscal third quarter were $93.0 million, compared with $35.3 million in the prior year period. The significant increase primarily reflects the contributions from Harry & David. Excluding Harry & David, revenues grew at a double-digit pace, primarily reflecting benefits from the Easter holiday day placement early in the Company’s fourth quarter which resulted in some sales being captured at the end of its fiscal third quarter. Gross margin for the quarter increased 90 basis points to 39.6 percent, compared with 38.7 percent in the prior year period. Segment contribution margin was a loss of $5.4 million, compared with a loss of $3.2 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the seasonality of the Harry & David business. Excluding Harry & David’s contribution loss of $4.9 million, and adjusting for the impact of the Fannie May warehouse fire on Thanksgiving Day, 2014, segment contribution margin increased to $400,000.

Company Guidance:

The Company’s guidance for fiscal 2015 includes contributions from the addition of the Harry & David business, which it acquired on September 30, 2014.

  • Regarding total net revenues for fiscal 2015, the Company continues to anticipate generating revenues from continuing operations in excess of $1.1 billion.
  • In terms of bottom-line results, based on its results through the first nine months of fiscal 2015, the Company is raising its guidance for Adjusted EBITDA, excluding stock-based compensation, which it now anticipates will exceed $90 million for the full fiscal year, and for Adjusted EPS, which it now anticipates will exceed the high end of its previous guidance range of $0.45-to-$0.50 per diluted share.

The Company noted that its fiscal 2015 guidance for top and bottom-line results does not include Harry & David’s results for the fiscal first quarter of the year which is typically their lowest in terms of revenues and includes a substantial bottom-line loss.

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. The Company presents EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations 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.

(*) 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.
 
(**) Performance is measured based on segment contribution margin or segment Adjusted EBITDA, reflecting only the direct controllable revenue and operating expenses of the segments. As such, management’s measure of profitability for these segments does not include the effect of corporate overhead, described above, depreciation and amortization, other income (net), nor does it include one-time charges or gains. Management utilizes EBITDA, and adjusted financial information, as a performance measurement tool because it considers such information a meaningful supplemental measure of its performance and believes it is frequently used by the investment community in the evaluation of companies with comparable market capitalization. The Company also uses EBITDA and adjusted financial information as one of the factors used to determine the total amount of bonuses available to be awarded to executive officers and other employees. The Company’s credit agreement uses EBITDA and adjusted financial information to measure compliance with covenants such as interest coverage and debt incurrence. EBITDA and adjusted financial information is also used by the Company to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates. EBITDA and adjusted financial information have limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (a) EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs; (b) EBITDA does 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. Because of these limitations, EBITDA should only be used on a supplemental basis combined with GAAP results when evaluating the Company's performance.
