BURLINGTON, New Jersey , March 20, 2014 (press release) –
Comparable store sales increased 4.0% and 4.7%, for the fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively
For the 52 weeks ended February 1, 2014 compared with the 53 weeks ended February 2, 2013:
Total net sales rose 7.2%
Adjusted EBITDA increased 15.6%, or $51.7 million
Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 70 basis points
Adjusted EPS increased 14.5% to $0.95
Comparable store inventory decreased 9.2%

Burlington Stores, Inc. (BURL), a nationally recognized off-price retailer of high-quality, branded apparel at everyday low prices, today announced its results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 1, 2014.

Tom Kingsbury, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are extremely pleased with our results in the fourth quarter and for the full year, given our strong sales and bottom line performance. For the year, we achieved a comparable store sales increase of 4.7%, an increase in Adjusted EBITDA of 15.6%, Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion of 70 basis points, and a 17.9% increase in Adjusted Net Income. These results benefited from strong fourth quarter comps of 4.0% as we continued to improve the execution of our off-price model. We remain focused on delivering great value, brands and freshness to our customers every day as well as executing our growth initiatives to improve comparable store sales, expand our retail store base and enhance our operating margins in Fiscal 2014 and beyond.”

Note regarding Non-GAAP financial measures

The following discussion includes references to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Pro Forma Adjusted EPS. The Company believes these measures are useful in evaluating the operating performance of the business and for comparing its results to that of other retailers. These non-GAAP financial measures are defined and reconciled to the most comparable GAAP measure later in this document.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013 Operating Results (for the 13 week period ended February 1, 2014 compared with the 14 week period ended February 2, 2013)1:

  • Comparable store sales increased 4.0%. In Fiscal 2012, certain stores were directly impacted by Hurricane Sandy and were not included in our comparable store base. In 2013, including these stores, comparable store sales increased 4.3%.
  • Net sales increased 1.3% to $1,334.3 million. Prior year net sales included approximately $54 million associated with the 53rd week ended February 2, 2013.
  • Gross margin expanded by 30 basis points primarily due to improved merchandising margins. Costs to process goods through the Company’s supply chain and buying costs, which are included in selling and administrative expenses, rose by a similar rate, as expected.
  • Selling and administrative expenses, exclusive of advisory fees, as a percentage of net sales were 28.0% vs. 27.8% last year. The fourth quarter last year was positively impacted by the reversal of incentive compensation accruals while the fourth quarter this year includes incentive compensation expense associated with performance better than plan. The incentive compensation expense difference resulted in an 80 basis point increase in expense quarter over quarter, which was partially offset by improved leverage on store payroll of 40 basis points and occupancy and other store expenses of 30 basis points, as well as leverage on corporate expenses.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 2.2%, or $4.2 million, to $194.8 million from last year. Sales growth along with gross margin expansion more than offset the increase in the Company’s incentive compensation accruals noted above. The 14th week included in the fourth quarter last year resulted in incremental Adjusted EBITDA of $0.5 million.
  • Depreciation and amortization expense, exclusive of net favorable lease amortization, decreased $0.9 million to $35.1 million.
  • Interest Expense decreased $2.0 million from last year driven primarily by interest savings on the Company’s Term Loan as a result of the May 2013 Term Loan refinancing, partially offset by incremental interest associated with the Company’s Holdco Notes issued in February 2013.
  • Adjusted tax expense was $51.3 million vs. $42.8 million last year. The adjusted effective tax rate was 38.8% vs. 34.2% last year. The increase in the rate is the result of incremental tax credits recorded last year.
  • Adjusted Net Income was $81.0 million vs. $82.4 million last year, or $1.07 per pro forma diluted share vs. $1.15 last year. The pro forma number of fully diluted shares was 75.4 million vs. 71.9 million last year.

Fiscal 2013 Operating Results (for the 52 week period ended February 1, 2014 compared with the 53 week period ended February 2, 2013)1:

  • Comparable store sales increased 4.7%. Including the stores impacted by Hurricane Sandy, comparable store sales increased 4.9%.
  • Net sales increased 7.2% to $4,427.5 million. Prior year net sales included approximately $54 million associated with the 53rd week.
  • Gross margin rate expanded by 30 basis points primarily due to improved merchandising margins. Costs to process goods through the Company’s supply chain and investments in the merchandising team, which are included in selling and administrative expenses, also rose by 30 basis points.
  • Selling and administrative expenses, exclusive of advisory fees, as a percentage of net sales improved to 31.4% from 31.7% last year. The 30 basis point improvement was driven by leverage of store and marketing expenses, of 100 basis points and 20 basis points, respectively. This was partially offset by a 50 basis point increase in incentive compensation expense and a 30 basis point rise in supply chain, merchandising and product costs.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 15.6%, or $51.7 million, to $383.7 million, representing a 70 basis point improvement in rate for the year.
  • Depreciation and amortization expense, exclusive of net favorable lease amortization, was $138.9 million, an increase of $3.4 million over last year, primarily attributed to the opening of 21 net new stores during the year.
  • Interest Expense increased $13.8 million to $127.7 million vs. last year, primarily driven by increased interest expense associated with the Company’s $350 million Holdco Notes, partially offset by a reduction in the interest rate on its Term Loan as a result of the May 2013 refinancing.
  • Adjusted tax expense was $47.1 million vs. $23.1 million last year. The adjusted effective tax rate was 40.1% vs. 27.9% last year. The increase in the rate is a result of the recognition of tax credits and the reversal of certain tax positions last year. In addition, this year’s rate was negatively impacted by the write-off of deferred tax assets related to vested stock options exercised.
  • Adjusted Net Income was $70.2 million vs. $59.6 million last year, or $0.95 per pro forma diluted share vs. $0.83 last year. The pro forma number of diluted shares outstanding was 74.3 million vs. 72.1 million last year. The 53rd week last year reduced Adjusted Net Income by approximately $3 million, or $0.04 per pro forma diluted share.
       

____________________________

1     Fiscal 2013 included 52 weeks versus 53 weeks last year, with the additional week occurring in the fourth quarter last year. Comparable store sales for the fourth quarter and full year 2013 were calculated using the 13 and 52 week periods ended February 1, 2014 compared to the 13 and 52 week periods ended February 2, 2013, respectively.
       
2013 Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $133.0 million vs. $43.3 million at last year end.
  • Merchandise Inventories were $720.1 million vs. $680.2 million at last year end. Ending inventory included approximately $175 million related to advantageous pack and hold purchases vs. approximately $90 million last year. The Company expects these purchases to contribute to its sales and margin objectives in Fiscal 2014. Comparable store inventory decreased 9.2%.

Store Expansion

During Fiscal 2013, the Company opened 21 net new stores, ending the year with 521 stores.

Adjusted Net Income, Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income per Share and Adjusted EBITDA

The following tables calculate the Company’s Adjusted Net Income, Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before net interest expense and loss on extinguishment of debt, taxes, depreciation, amortization and impairment, stock option modification expense, advisory fees and costs related to debt amendments, termination of advisory agreement and other), all of which are considered Non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a Non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as consolidated net income for the period plus (i) net favorable lease amortization, (ii) costs related to debt amendments, termination of advisory agreement and other, (iii) loss on the extinguishment of debt, (iv) impairment charges, (v) advisory fees and (vi) stock option modification expense, all of which are tax effected to arrive at Adjusted Net Income.

Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the pro forma weighted average shares outstanding, as defined in the table below.

The Company presents Adjusted Net Income, Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income per Share and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes they are useful supplemental measures in evaluating the performance of the business and provide greater transparency into the results of operations. In particular, the Company believes that excluding certain items that may vary substantially in frequency and magnitude from operating income are useful supplemental measures that assist in evaluating the Company’s ability to generate earnings and leverage sales, and to more readily compare these metrics between past and future periods.

The Company believes that Adjusted Net Income, Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income per Share and Adjusted EBITDA provide investors helpful information with respect to the Company’s operations and financial condition. Other companies in the retail industry may calculate these non-GAAP measures differently such that the Company’s calculation may not be directly comparable. The adjustments to these metrics are not in accordance with regulations adopted by the SEC that apply to periodic reports presented under the Exchange Act. Accordingly, Adjusted Net Income, Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income per Share and Adjusted EBITDA may be presented differently in filings made with the SEC than as presented in this report or not presented at all.

The following table shows the Company’s reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income for the full year and three months ended February 1, 2014 compared with the full year and three months ended February 2, 2013:
