Tandy Brands Reports Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Earnings Results And Provides Update On Current Events

The non-binding term sheet contains customary pre-close requirements with respect to diligence investigations and any new credit facility is expected to contain customary post-close covenants. Borrowings under the proposed credit facility are expected to bear interest in the LIBOR plus 8.5% to LIBOR plus 11.3% range (or 9.3% to 12.0%) over a 24 month period.

"We expected the new facility would be more expensive than our previous facility. However, it is important to us to balance the capital cost with potential dilution to our shareholders," said McGeachy. "The current term sheet contains no dilutive features and we believe this new facility will provide us the liquidity we need to execute our recently announced restructuring initiatives."


"Through the execution of our recently announced restructuring plans, we are reducing our cost structure by $6 million to $7 million, reducing the risk associated with our gifts business and focusing on our most profitable core brands and customers," commented McGeachy. "We believe the execution of these initiatives will allow us to strengthen our competitive position and significantly improve profitability in fiscal 2014."

Tandy Brands Accessories, Inc. And Subsidiaries Unaudited Non-GAAP Disclosures (in thousands except per share amounts)

Our adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measurement, is defined as net (loss) income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, investments in new licenses and other one-time items. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it provides useful information about our business activities and also is frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in evaluating a Company's performance. Not all companies utilize identical calculations; therefore, our presentation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other identically titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of our results of operations as reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The following table reconciles our GAAP net (loss) income to the adjusted EBITDA disclosures.
