Kirkland's Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2012 Outlook


Store Growth:

For the 14-week period ending February 2, 2013 (“the fourth quarter”), the Company expects to open 17 new stores and close approximately 2 stores. For fiscal 2012, this represents 42 new store openings and 28 closings, a unit increase of approximately 4.5% and a square footage increase of approximately 10%.


The Company expects total sales for the fourth quarter to range between $160 million and $163 million, inclusive of the additional week in the retail calendar this year. This implies a comparable store sales decrease of 2% to 5% using a 13-week to 13-week comparison. Total sales for fiscal 2012 are expected to be in the range of $445.5 million to $448.5 million, implying a comparable store sales decrease of 3% to 4% on a 52-week to 52-week comparative basis.


The Company expects earnings per share for the fourth quarter to be in the range of $0.71 to $0.76, which would equate to earnings per share for fiscal 2012 of $0.67 to $0.72. The Company expects its effective tax rate for fiscal 2012 to range between 38% and 38.5%.

Cash Flow:

Capital expenditures in fiscal 2012 are estimated to range between $30 million and $32 million. Based on the above assumptions, the Company expects to have approximately $61 million to $64 million in cash and cash equivalents at year-end fiscal 2012.
