1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. Reports Results For Its Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter

  • Total revenues were $233.7 million compared with $234.2 million in the prior year period. Strong growth of 10.2 percent and 7.0 percent in the Company’s Consumer Floral and BloomNet segments, respectively, was offset by lower year-over-year revenues in its Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets segment due primarily to the shift of the Easter holiday into the Company’s fiscal fourth quarter.
  • EBITDA, excluding stock-based compensation expense, was a loss of $6.5 million, compared with a loss of $4.0 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the impact of the Easter holiday shift.
  • GAAP EPS loss for the quarter was $0.17, compared with a GAAP EPS loss of $0.14 per share in the prior year period, also primarily reflecting the impact of the Easter holiday shift.

CARLE PLACE, N.Y. - May 02, 2017 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLWS), the leading gourmet food and floral gift provider for all occasions, today reported results for its Fiscal 2017 third quarter ended April 2, 2017.

Chris McCann, CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc., said, “During the fiscal third quarter, we achieved strong performance in our Consumer Floral and BloomNet segments. Revenues for the 1-800-Flowers.com brand increased more than 10 percent and contribution margin increased more than 15 percent. BloomNet also achieved solid revenue growth, up 7 percent for the period, along with 6 percent growth in its bottom-line contribution. These results illustrate the leverage in our business model as well as our focus on efficient marketing and merchandising programs combined with truly original product offerings.”

McCann said that both the Consumer Floral and BloomNet segments benefited from the shift of the Valentine holiday to a Tuesday day placement this year. “In our floral businesses, we more than offset the impact of the Easter shift by continuing to drive strong growth in our everyday gifting business and maximizing the benefit of the weekday placement for the Valentine holiday. However, the later Easter date this year moved significant revenues out of the third quarter in our Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets segment. Combined with the timing of some Harry & David revenues, this impacted both top and bottom line results for the quarter.”

McCann noted that the impact of the Easter shift was anticipated and said the Company has already recaptured the revenues associated with the date shift in its current fiscal fourth quarter. “In addition to recapturing the Easter revenues, during the fourth quarter our Gourmet Foods and Gift Baskets segment will benefit from the timing of some Harry & David Fruit-Of-The-Month Club™ shipments. Combined with the continuing positive trends in Consumer Floral and BloomNet, we anticipate achieving solid top and bottom-line growth across all three of our business segments for the fiscal fourth quarter.”

Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

For the third quarter of 2017, revenues were essentially unchanged at $233.7 million, compared with total revenues of $234.2 million in the prior year period. This reflects lower year-over-year revenues in the Company’s Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets segment due primarily to the impact of the Easter holiday shifting into the Company’s fiscal fourth quarter this year. This impact was largely offset by strong revenue growth in the Company’s Consumer Floral and BloomNet segments which grew 10.2 percent and 7.0 percent, respectively, compared with the prior year period.

Gross profit margin for the quarter was 40.0 percent, a decrease of 130 basis points compared with 41.3 percent in the prior year period. This primarily reflects lower gross margin in the Company’s Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets segments, due largely to the shift of the Easter holiday. Operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, as a percent of total revenues improved 30 basis points to 43.4 percent, compared with 43.7 percent in the prior year period.

The combination of these factors resulted in an EBITDA loss (excluding stock-based compensation expense) of $6.5 million compared with an EBITDA loss of $4.0 million in the prior year period. Net loss was $11.1 million, or $0.17 per share, compared with a net loss of $9.1 million, or $0.14 per share, in the prior year period.

Regarding customer metrics for the quarter, the Company attracted 881,000 new customers. Approximately 1.9 million customers placed orders during the quarter, of which 53.4 percent were repeat customers. This reflects the Company’s effective marketing and merchandising programs, including initiatives in social and mobile communication channels and its Celebrations suite of services – Celebrations Passport, Celebrations Rewards and Celebrations Reminders – all designed to engage and deepen its relationships with its customers.

Segment Results From Continuing Operations:

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

  • Gourmet Foods and Gift Baskets: Revenues for the quarter declined 13.6 percent to $85.6 million, compared with $99.1 million in the prior year period. Gross margin declined 360 basis points to 34.8 percent, compared with 38.4 percent in the prior year period. Contribution margin loss was $10.8 million compared with $6.8 million in the prior year period. The revenue, gross margin and contribution margin declines primarily reflect the impact of the shift of the Easter holiday as well as the timing of some revenues in the Company’s Harry & David business.
  • Consumer Floral: Fiscal third quarter revenues in this segment increased 10.2 percent to $124.7 million, compared with $113.2 million in the prior year period. Gross margin was 40.6 percent, unchanged compared with the prior year period. Because of these factors, category contribution margin increased for the eleventh consecutive quarter, up 15.4 percent to $15.9 million, compared with $13.7 million in the prior year period.
  • BloomNet Wire Service: Revenues for the quarter increased 7.0 percent to $24.1 million, compared with $22.5 million in the prior year period. Gross profit margin was 53.6 percent, a decrease of 140 basis points compared with 55.0 percent in the prior year period, primarily reflecting product mix. Contribution margin increased 6.4 percent to $8.2 million compared with $7.7 million in the prior year period.

Company Guidance:

The Company is reiterating its guidance for fiscal 2017 as follows:

  • Consolidated revenue growth for the year in a range of 3-to-4 percent, compared with revenues of $1.17 billion reported for fiscal 2016.
  • EBITDA growth in a range of 8-to-10 percent compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $85.8 million reported for fiscal 2016.
  • EPS growth in a range of 5-to-10 percent compared with Adjusted EPS of $0.43 reported for fiscal 2016.
  • Free Cash Flow for the year of approximately $40 million compared with $24 million in fiscal 2016.

Note: On March 15, 2017, the Company announced the signing of a definitive agreement to sell its Fannie May Confections Brands business to Ferrero International for $115.0 million. Closing for this transaction is anticipated to be at the end of May. The Company’s current guidance for fiscal 2017 does not reflect the pending sale.
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, 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)   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.
