First Quarter Results

Net sales increased 17.5% to $227.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $193.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in net sales was driven by a 1.7% increase in comparable store sales and increased store count compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The Company opened 5 stores in the first quarter and ended the quarter with 239 stores compared to 208 stores at the end of the first quarter in fiscal 2016.

Gross profit increased 17.6% to $92.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $79.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The gross margin remained consistent year over year at 40.8%.

Operating income increased 30.3% to $27.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $21.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. As a percent of net sales, operating income increased 120 basis points to 12.0% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Excluding $0.9 million of transaction related expenses incurred in the first quarter of last year, operating income increased 25.0% and 70 basis points as a percent of net sales.

Net income increased 61.4% to $19.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $11.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Adjusted net income(1), which excludes a loss on extinguishment of debt net of taxes and income tax benefits due to the accounting change for stock based compensation in the current year, and excludes transaction related expenses net of taxes in the prior year, increased 30.0% to $16.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $12.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 24.0% to $32.1 million, or 14.1% of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $25.9 million, or 13.4% of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense, non-cash purchase accounting items and transaction related expenses.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

The Company's cash balance as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $33.7 million compared to $37.1 million at the end of first quarter fiscal 2016. The Company had no borrowings under its $100.0 million revolving credit and $97.8 million of availability under the facility at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

Inventory at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 19.5% to $246.6 million compared to $206.4 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2016, due primarily to new store growth and timing of deal flow.

(2) Adjusted net income per diluted share is not a measure recognized under GAAP. For a definition of Adjusted net income per diluted share, please see the disclosures related to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP tables elsewhere in this release. The $0.04 per diluted share difference between the guidance ranges for Net income per diluted share and Adjusted net income per diluted share reflects the loss on extinguishment of debt and income tax benefits due to the change in accounting for stock based compensation incurred and reported for the thirteen weeks ended April 29, 2017. The Company cannot predict future transaction related estimates without unreasonable effort and therefore excludes any such estimates from its Outlook.

Supplemental Information – Consolidated Adjusted Operating Income
Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(In thousands except for per share amounts)
(Unaudited)

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). We have included the non-GAAP measures of Adjusted operating income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share in this press release as these are key measures used by our management and our board of directors to evaluate our operating performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies, make budgeting decisions, and evaluate compensation decisions. Management believes it is useful to investors and analysts to evaluate these non-GAAP measures on the same basis as management uses to evaluate the Company’s operating results. We believe that excluding items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, our core operating results, and that may vary in frequency or magnitude, from operating income, Net income and Net income per diluted share, enhances the comparability of our results and provides a better baseline for analyzing trends in our business.

The tables below reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted operating income to operating income, Adjusted net income to Net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share to Net income per diluted share, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net income, in each case the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share give effect, net of tax, to transaction related expenses, loss on extinguishment of debt, and income tax benefits due to the accounting change for stock based compensation, which may not occur with the same frequency or magnitude in future periods. Adjusted operating income also gives effect to transaction related expenses. We define EBITDA as net income before net interest expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization expenses and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA as further adjusted for non-cash stock based compensation expense, non-cash purchase accounting items, and transaction related expenses, which we do not consider representative of our ongoing operating performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative or substitute for, the Company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Certain of the items that may be excluded or included in non-GAAP financial measures may be significant items that could impact the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows and should therefore be considered in assessing the Company's actual financial condition and performance. The methods used by the Company to calculate its non-GAAP financial measures may differ significantly from methods used by other companies to compute similar measures. As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other companies.
