DAVIDsTEA Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Results

/EIN News/ -- MONTREAL, Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DAVIDsTEA Inc. (Nasdaq:DTEA) today announced financial results for the three and six months ended August 4, 2018.

For the three months ended August 4, 2018:

  • Sales decreased by 12.0% to C$40.2 million from C$45.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Comparable sales decreased by 14.8%. Comparable sales decreased as our product offering did not resonate with customers, we were less promotional as we moved to reduce our dependency on discounting, and we had less product available for our semi-annual sale, as we were in a better seasonal inventory position compared to the prior year quarter. We recently revised our merchandising strategy, which was not reflected in our second quarter assortment.
  • Gross profit decreased by 14.4% to C$17.3 million from C$20.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017, while gross profit as a percent of sales decreased slightly to 43.2% from 44.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Gross profit as a percent of sales was down from the prior year quarter as product margin increases, driven by less promotional activity and a shift in product sales mix, were offset by a deleveraging of fixed costs due to the negative comparable sales.
  • Selling, general and administration expenses (“SG&A”) increased to C$31.4 million from C$27.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. As a percent of sales, SG&A increased to 78.0% from 60.9%. Adjusted SG&A, a non-IFRS measure, which excludes any impact from executive separation costs, impairment of property and equipment, onerous contracts and costs related to strategic review and proxy contest (see Reconciliation of IFRS basis to Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses), decreased to C$24.6 million from C$25.9 million, due to lower stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization expenses. As a percent of sales, Adjusted SG&A increased to 61.2% from 56.7%, due to the deleveraging of fixed costs as a result of the negative comparable sales this quarter.
  • Results from operating activities were C$(14.0) million as compared to C$(7.6) million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Adjusted results from operating activities, a non-IFRS measure, which excludes any impact from executive separation costs, impairment of property and equipment, onerous contracts and costs related to strategic review and proxy contest (see Reconciliation of IFRS basis to Adjusted results from operating activities), decreased to C$(7.3) million from C$(5.7) million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was C$(5.6) million compared to C$(2.2) million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, excludes non-cash or other items in the current and prior year periods (see Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA table).
  • Cash of C$39.6 million.
  • Net loss was C$(10.0) million compared to net loss of C$(5.6) million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Adjusted net income (loss), a non-IFRS measure, which excludes any impact from executive separation costs, impairment of property and equipment, onerous contracts and costs related to strategic review and proxy contest (see Reconciliation of IFRS basis to Adjusted net income (loss) table), was C$(5.0) million compared to C$(4.2) million.
  • Fully diluted income (loss) per common share was C$(0.39) compared to C$(0.22) in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per common share, a non-IFRS measure, which is adjusted net income (loss) on an adjusted fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding basis (see Reconciliation of fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding table), was C$(0.19) per share compared to C$(0.16) per share.

For the six months ended August 4, 2018:

  • Sales decreased by 8.9% to C$86.0 million from C$94.4 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Comparable sales decreased by 10.8%.
  • Gross profit decreased by 9.9% to C$40.0 million from C$44.4 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2017, while gross profit as a percent of sales decreased slightly to 46.6% from 47.0% in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Gross profit as a percent of sales was in line with the prior year period as product margin increased, driven by less promotional activity and a shift in product sales mix, which was offset by a deleveraging of fixed costs due to the negative comparable sales.
  • Selling, general and administration expenses (“SG&A”) increased to C$55.7 million from C$52.0 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. As a percent of sales, SG&A increased to 64.9% from 55.1%. Adjusted SG&A, a non-IFRS measure, which excludes any impact from executive separation costs, impairment of property and equipment, onerous contracts and costs related to strategic review and proxy contest (see Reconciliation of IFRS basis to Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses), decreased to C$49.8 million from C$51.5 million, due to lower stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization expenses. As a percent of sales, Adjusted SG&A increased to 57.9% from 54.6%, due to the deleveraging of fixed costs as a result of the negative comparable sales this quarter.
  • Results from operating activities were C$(15.7) million as compared to C$(7.6) million in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Adjusted results from operating activities, a non-IFRS measure, which excludes any impact from executive separation costs, impairment of property and equipment, onerous contracts and costs related to strategic review and proxy contest (see Reconciliation of IFRS basis to Adjusted results from operating activities), decreased to C$(9.7) million from C$(7.1) million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was C$(6.0) million compared to C$(0.7) million in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, excludes non-cash or other items in the current and prior year periods (see Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA table).
  • Net loss was C$(11.2) million compared to net loss of C$(5.9) million in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Adjusted net income (loss), a non-IFRS measure, which excludes any impact from executive separation costs, impairment of property and equipment, onerous contracts and costs related to strategic review and proxy contest (see Reconciliation of IFRS basis to Adjusted net income (loss) table), was C$(6.7) million compared to C$(5.3) million.
  • Fully diluted income (loss) per common share was C$(0.43) compared to C$(0.23) in the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per common share, a non-IFRS measure, which is adjusted net income (loss) on an adjusted fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding basis (see Reconciliation of fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding table), was C$(0.26) per share compared to C$(0.21) per share.

“Our slate of Board members was elected in mid-June, halfway through the second quarter,” said Herschel Segal, Executive Chairman and Interim CEO of DAVIDsTEA. “Since that time we have begun collaborative work to reverse the tide of recent negative quarterly results. Following a thorough evaluation, we have determined that we need to get back to the basics of product innovation. In this regard, we are dedicated to offering a more convenient and innovative tea beverage offering in our stores and through a wider distribution network for tea sachets. Two positive actions have been taken with respect to capturing more of the tea sachet market. First, we are now working to buy tea sachets smarter and for less, so that we can price our products better for our customers and attract many new ones. Second, last month we launched an exciting new program with Loblaws, and are now in 450 stores across Canada. The product is merchandised at eye level and the consumer response to date has been very good. This is a great way to further promote our brand.

“We are a merchant operator first and foremost, and we must deliver the right product at the right price. Our focus needs to be on improving our purchasing and delivering the brand wherever the consumers want it – in our stores, online or through other retail channels and other potential growth areas such as the hospitality and travel markets. It must be an omnichannel approach. We have made adjustments at head office to change our operations and our culture. We are building a strong team – and we have put more senior leaders in buying, sales and product development. We are ready to find a CEO who will enthusiastically adapt to the DAVIDsTEA environment, lead with a realistic optimism, and bring vision that will be refined and further developed with the senior executive team and the Board.

“We have entered a new era at DAVIDsTEA. Our dynamic management team is focused on what needs to be done as we begin the road back to profitability. We are positive about our future. I am confident that our shareholders will see improved results within the next nine months,” concluded Mr. Segal.

Conference Call Information:
A conference call to discuss the second quarter fiscal 2018 financial results is scheduled for today, September 13, 2018, at 5:00 pm Eastern Time. The conference call will be webcast and may be accessed via the Company’s Investor Relations section of its website at www.davidstea.com. An online archive of the webcast will be available within two hours of the conclusion of the call and will remain available for one year.

Non-IFRS Information:

This press release includes non-IFRS measures including 1) Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, 2) Adjusted results from operating activities, 3) Adjusted EBITDA, 4) Adjusted net income (loss), and 5) Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share. Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share are not presentations made in accordance with IFRS, and the use of the terms Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. We believe that Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share provide investors with useful information with respect to our historical operations. We present Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share as supplemental performance measures because we believe they facilitate a comparative assessment of our operating performance relative to our performance based on our results under IFRS, while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period-to-period. Specifically, Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share allow for an assessment of our operating performance, including new store costs, without the effect of non-cash charges of the period or other one-time charges, such as depreciation, amortization, finance costs, deferred rent, non-cash compensation expense, costs related to onerous contracts or contracts where we expect the costs of the obligations to exceed the economic benefit, gain (loss) on derivative financial instruments, loss on disposal of property and equipment, impairment of property and equipment, and certain non-recurring expenses. These measures also function as benchmarks to evaluate our operating performance. Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share are not measurements of our financial performance under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, net cash provided by operating, investing or financing activities or any other financial statement data presented as indicators of financial performance or liquidity, each as presented in accordance with IFRS. We understand that although Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share are frequently used by securities analysts, lenders and others in their evaluation of companies, they have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted selling, general and administration expenses, Adjusted results from operating activities, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted fully diluted income (loss) per share should not be considered as discretionary cash available to us to reinvest in the growth of our business or as a measure of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations.

Forward-Looking Statements:

These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of words such as “anticipate,” “expect,” “plan,” “could,” “may,” “will,” “believe,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “goal,” “project,” and other words of similar meaning.

If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Company’s assumptions prove incorrect, the Company’s actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this release speaks only as of the date on which the Company makes it.
