LAS VEGAS, March 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tatyana Designs, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Pink:TATD), a growing designer, manufacturer and retailer of vintage inspired contemporary designs, today posted financial results for 2013.

For the year ended December 31, 2013:

  • Net sales increased 43% in 2013 to $14.7 million from $10.25 million in 2012. Sales in 2012 increased 42% over 2011.
  • Boutique sales increased 67% and comparable boutique sales increased 5% during 2013 compared to 2012.
  • E-commerce sales increased 9% to $1.1 million in 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for 2013 was $242,000 (see discussion below and accompanying table for non-GAAP measures) and the Company generated $524,000 in cash from operating activities.
  • The number of Company owned Boutiques increased from eleven at December 31, 2012 to seventeen at December 31, 2013.
  • Selling, general and administrative costs increased in 2013 due to the increase in the national scope of operations with seventeen boutiques located in twelve states.

The Company ended the year 2013 with $683,000 cash, working capital of $1.96 million and inventory and inventory deposits of $2.8 million. The Company financed its growth during 2013 primarily from internal operations. The Company restated 2012 results to reflect additional income as a result of capitalized freight and deferred and other tax timing differences with no change in cash flows from operations or cash for the year.

"We are very pleased with the organic financed growth achieved in 2013. We increased comparable boutique sales and increased e-commerce revenues during a year focused on building infrastructure to a national scale," said Jan Glaser, co-CEO and treasurer of Tatyana Designs, Inc. "We absorbed significant new boutique startup expenses including a $359,000 increase in non-cash deferred rent. While we reported a net loss in 2013 primarily as a result of our investment in growth, we generated positive cash from operations and we are optimistic about our prospects.

"During the last two months of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 we faced severe weather challenges resulting in sporadic daily boutique closings and reduced traffic that negatively impacted revenues, margins and operating costs," added Glaser. "We also recently announced a rebranding of our boutiques as 'Tatyana®', to reflect the inspiration of our founding fashion designer Tatyana Khomyakova whose designs have been capturing women from all walks of life since 2007. While it is too early to estimate the impact of the above challenges on 2014 results, we believe we have a national scale of boutique and e-commerce operations to leverage for 2014."
