Reports sales increase of 35% to $117.1 million;

Reports GAAP diluted EPS of $0.07; adjusted EPS of $0.11

Raises full year 2013 guidance

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Five Below, Inc. (Nasdaq:FIVE) today announced financial results for the thirteen weeks ended August 3, 2013.

For the thirteen weeks ended August 3, 2013:

  • Net sales increased by 34.9% to $117.1 million from $86.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012; comparable store sales increased by 6.6%.
  • Operating income was $7.2 million as compared to $4.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Adjusted operating income, which excludes the impact of the founders' transaction in both periods and the fees incurred related to the Company's secondary public offering in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 (see GAAP/Non-GAAP reconciliation table), increased to $9.7 million as compared to $6.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • The Company opened 18 new stores and ended the quarter with 276 stores in 19 states. This represents an increase in stores of 22% from the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • Net interest expense was $0.4 million as compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in net interest expense resulted from the decrease in the outstanding balance of the Company's term loan since the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company entered into a $100.0 million term loan during the second quarter of fiscal 2012, of which $65.3 million was repaid during the second quarter of fiscal 2012 subsequent to the completion of the Company's initial public offering ("IPO") on July 24, 2012. During the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company repaid an additional $15.0 million of principal on the term loan.
  • Loss on debt extinguishment was $0.3 million as compared to $1.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. During the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, the loss on debt extinguishment related to the write-off of deferred financing costs in connection with the $15.0 million and $65.3 million partial repayments of the Company's term loan, respectively.
  • The effective tax rate was 37.7% compared to 40.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • Net income was $4.1 million compared to $1.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Adjusted net income, which excludes the impact of the founders' transaction in both periods and the fees incurred related to the Company's secondary public offering in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 (see GAAP/Non-GAAP reconciliation table), was $6.1 million compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, diluted income per common share was $0.07 compared to a loss of $3.41 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Adjusted diluted income per common share, which is adjusted net income on an adjusted diluted weighted average common shares outstanding basis (see GAAP/Non-GAAP reconciliation table), was $0.11, compared to $0.04 in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Thomas Vellios, Co-Founder, President and CEO, stated: "We are extremely pleased with our top and bottom line performance in the second quarter which once again illustrates the strong fundamentals of our business. We saw solid performance across most of our categories reflecting the broad appeal of the Five Below concept, merchandise and value proposition."

Mr. Vellios added, "Through the end of the second quarter, we have opened 32 of our 60 planned 2013 net new stores, which are off to a great start as our concept resonates with customers across new and existing markets. We are excited about our entry into the state of Texas with four stores opened in Austin during the last weekend of the second quarter, and look forward to the largest grand-opening in our history, with eleven stores slated to open in Dallas on September 12th. We believe the performance of both our new and existing stores, as well as strong execution by the entire Five Below team, have us well-positioned to deliver on our goals for the year."

For the twenty-six weeks ended August 3, 2013:

  • Net sales increased by 34.1% to $212.7 million from $158.6 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2012; comparable store sales increased by 5.4%.
  • Operating income was $10.4 million as compared to $2.8 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2012. Adjusted operating income, which excludes the impact of the founders' transaction in both periods and the fees incurred related to the Company's secondary public offering in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 (see GAAP/Non-GAAP reconciliation table), increased to $14.4 million as compared to $10.5 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2012.
  • The Company opened 32 net new stores, compared to 34 new stores opened in the comparable period in fiscal 2012.

Excluding $0.9 million, or $0.02 per adjusted diluted share in tax-effected expenses related to the founders' transaction, adjusted net income is expected to be approximately $1.5 million to $2.1 million, or $0.03 to $0.04 per diluted share based on estimated adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 54.5 million.

For fiscal 2013, net sales are expected to be in the range of $531 million to $536 million based on opening 60 net new stores for the full year and assuming a 5% increase in comparable store sales.

Non-GAAP Information

This press release includes non-GAAP adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding and adjusted diluted income per common share, each a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in tables accompanying this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company's business and facilitate a meaningful evaluation of its quarterly and fiscal year 2013 diluted income per common share and actual results on a comparable basis with its quarterly and fiscal year 2012 results. In evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures, investors should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses or be involved in transactions that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company's presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company's industry may calculate these items differently than it does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This news release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which reflect management's current views and estimates regarding the Company's industry, business strategy, goals and expectations concerning its market position, future operations, margins, profitability, capital expenditures, liquidity and capital resources and other financial and operating information. Investors can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "future" and similar terms and phrases. The Company cannot assure investors that future developments affecting the Company will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to risks relating to the Company's strategy and expansion plans, the availability of suitable new store locations, risks that consumer spending may decline and that U.S. and global macroeconomic conditions may worsen, risks related to the Company's continued retention of its senior management and other key personnel, risks relating to changes in consumer preferences and economic conditions, risks relating to the Company's distribution centers, quality or safety concerns about the Company's merchandise, events that may affect the Company's vendors, increased competition from other retailers, risks relating to trade restrictions, risks associated with leasing substantial amounts of space, and other factors that are set forth in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including risk factors contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2013 and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal year ending February 1, 2014 filed with the SEC and available at www.sec.gov. 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 news release speaks only as of the date on which the Company makes it. Factors or events that could cause the Company's actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by any applicable securities laws.
