Hhgregg Announces Second Fiscal Quarter Operating Results

Dennis May, President and CEO commented, “While the video category remained challenging across the industry in our second fiscal quarter, we were pleased with the early progress of strategic initiatives designed to enhance store productivity. While we improved our video sales mix to focus on larger screen televisions which improved our gross margin rate, we were disappointed by the amount of overall market share of televisions we lost. Over the next few quarters we will continue to refine our strategy to find the right mix between gross margin rate and market share. We continue to see positive results in our appliance business and are continuing to test new merchandise and tailor our assortment around products that leverage our consultative sales force, delivery and installation network and private-label credit offering. In our fiscal third quarter, we expect to fully rollout furniture and exercise equipment to all of our stores, along with continuing to rollout to a selective number of stores an expanded offering of tablet and hand held consumer products.”

Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2012 decreased 5.0% to $587.6 million from $618.6 million in the comparable prior year period. The decrease in net sales for the three month period was the result of a comparable store sales decrease of 8.8% along with the lapping of strong grand opening sales performance from stores that opened in the prior fiscal year, partially offset by the net addition of 19 stores during the past 12 months. Net sales for the six months ended September 30, 2012 increased 2.6% to $1.08 billion from $1.05 billion in the comparable prior year period. The increase in net sales for the six month period was attributable to the net addition of 19 stores during the past 12 months partially offset by a comparable store sales decrease of 7.2%.
