- Third quarter net sales were $155.2 million compared to $158.7 million in the prior year period. Comparable store sales (1) for the quarter were essentially flat, decreasing 0.1%.
- Net loss in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $53.6 million compared to net loss of $10.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Net loss in the 2012 quarterly period includes $65.1 million of non-cash charges comprised of $60.3 million for impairment of trade names and $4.8 million for impairment of store assets, as well as $1.1 million of charges related to litigation and financial advisory fees related to the Company’s financing efforts.
- Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $1.7 million compared to $9.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Gross margin in the third quarter was impacted largely by increased promotional activity versus a year ago to help drive sales and clear inventory. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarterly period also includes approximately $0.9 million of incremental costs associated with the effect of having transitioned to a publicly traded company independent from Sears Holdings Corporation and approximately $0.7 million of rent associated with sale-leaseback properties owned by the Company in the prior year period and for which the Company did not pay rent (see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for a discussion of this non-GAAP measure and reconciliation to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and further information on its uses and limitations).
- As of October 27, 2012, total long-term debt was $173.7 million, all of which was classified as current. Total long-term debt plus capital leases was $228.4 million compared to $320.0 million at October 29, 2011. During the period, Orchard successfully refinanced its Senior Secured Credit Facility, providing the Company with increased borrowing capacity at a lower cost. At the close of the third quarter, the Company had approximately $66.5 million of available cash and credit.
