The Tile Shop Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

0.5% Comparable Store Sales Growth
69.7% Gross Margin
Net Income growth of 12.8%
Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.15, growth of 15.4%
Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.15, growth of 7.1%

MINNEAPOLIS, July 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tile Shop Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTS) (the “Company”), a specialty retailer of manufactured and natural stone tiles, setting and maintenance materials, and related accessories, today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Net sales grew 6.2% to $89.5 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared with $84.3 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016. The $5.2 million increase in net sales was due to a comparable store sales increase of 0.5%, or $0.5 million, and incremental net sales of $4.7 million from stores not included in the comparable store base. The Company noted that comparable store sales growth was mid-single digit over the two month period of May and June, but this was mostly offset by a decline in April. Comparable store sales growth for the second quarter of 2016 was 8.2%.

“Despite the topline shortfall, we were pleased to deliver solid growth in earnings per share in the quarter, generate significant free cash flow to reduce debt to the lowest level in five years and continue to successfully open new stores, with seven stores opened year to date and an additional seven to eight scheduled to open in the second half of the year,” said Chris Homeister, CEO.

Gross margin for the second quarter of each of 2017 and 2016 was 69.7%.

Selling, general and administrative costs for the second quarter of 2017 were $50.7 million compared with $47.0 million for the second quarter of 2016. The $3.7 million increase was primarily driven by the costs associated with opening and operating new stores.

The Company opened four new retail stores in the second quarter of 2017, consisting of its seventh Dallas area location in Fort Worth, TX, its fourth location in the Denver, CO market, its second location in the Nashville, TN market and its fourth location in the Atlanta, GA market located in Buckhead. As of June 30, 2017 the Company operates 130 stores in 31 states and the District of Columbia.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $7.9 million compared with $7.1 million for the second quarter of 2016. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2017 were $0.15 compared with $0.14 for the second quarter of 2016, representing 7.1% growth.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company calculates Adjusted EBITDA by taking net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, and adjusting for interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation and special charges related to litigation, including shareholder and other litigation. Adjusted EBITDA margin is equal to Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. Non-GAAP net income excludes special charges related to litigation costs, including shareholder and other litigation, and is net of tax.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. Company management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare Company performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, for purposes of determining management incentive compensation, and for budgeting and planning purposes. These measures are used in monthly financial reports prepared for management and the Board of Directors. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other specialty retailers, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Company management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitations of these non-GAAP financial measures are that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recognized in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the business.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This press release includes “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements may be identified by the use of words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “estimate”, “plan”, “outlook”, and “project” and other similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters.

Forward looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward looking statements, including but not limited to unforeseen events that may affect the retail market or the performance of the Company’s stores. The Company does not intend, and undertakes no duty, to update this information to reflect future events or circumstances.
