Stein Mart, Inc. Reports 2012 Results, Completion Of Restatement And Plans For 2013

Stocks in this article: SMRT


We have made certain reclassifications in the Consolidated Statements of Income related to breakage income on unused gift and merchandise return cards and credit card income related to our co-branded and private label credit card agreement which were presented in Other income, net and have been reclassified to SG&A.  There were no reclassifications made to the Consolidated Balance Sheets, Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income or Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.


The following is a description of the areas in which the errors were identified and for which we made correcting adjustments to our Consolidated Financial Statements. The associated income tax expense or benefit and related deferred tax asset or liability for each error has also been corrected.

(1) Inventory markdowns - We identified and corrected errors related to the incorrect treatment of certain inventory markdowns as promotional (temporary). Based on analysis of various factors, these inventory markdowns should have been accounted for as permanent markdowns. Under the retail inventory method of accounting used by us, promotional markdowns do not impact the value of unsold inventory and thus do not impact cost of sales until the merchandise is sold. Conversely, permanent markdowns reduce the value of unsold inventory and impact cost of sales at the time the markdowns are taken.

(2) Leasehold improvement costs - We identified and corrected errors to report fixed assets related to leasehold improvements at their gross amount with lessor reimbursements for the related construction recorded as deferred rent credits. Landlord (lessor) reimbursements to us (lessee) for store interior construction had been incorrectly accounted for as reductions in the fixed assets related to leasehold improvements. This practice was based on the prior belief that our leasehold improvements increased the fair value of the lessor's property. Management now believes that there was no significant increase in the fair value of the lessor's leased assets and therefore these leasehold improvements should have been recorded, depreciated over and subject to impairment exclusive of lessor reimbursements in the respective periods. Cost of merchandise sold decreased by $3.0 million and SG&A expenses increased by $1.1 million for 2011 as a result of this adjustment.
