Indianapolis-based appliance and electronics retailer, hhgregg, Inc. (“hhgregg” or the “Company”) today reported a net loss of $5.7 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the three month period ended June 30, 2012, compared with a net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period. The increase in the Company’s net loss for the three month period was the result of a comparable store sales decrease of 5.1%, an increase in net advertising expense as a percentage of net sales, an increase in SG&A expense as a percentage of net sales and a slight decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net sales, partially offset by the net addition of 30 stores in the past 12 months.
