The Tile Shop Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Tile Shop Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTS) (the “Company”), a specialty retailer of manufactured and natural stone tiles, setting and maintenance materials, and related accessories, today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Net sales increased 25.5% to $58.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared with $46.3 million for the second quarter last year. The $11.8 million increase in sales was driven by an increase in comparable store sales of 14.3% or $6.6 million, and incremental net sales of $5.2 million from stores not included in the comparable stores base. For the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA grew 16.6% to $15.8 million, compared to $13.6 million in the same period of the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales was 27.2%.

Robert Rucker, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Strong performance at both the Company’s new stores and at its legacy stores contributed to another strong quarter. The 14.3% increase in same store sales, represents both meaningful sequential, as well as year-over year growth.”

“The Tile Shop is proving that its model has a strong affinity with the consumer across all of our markets, as demonstrated by our increasing market share”, Mr. Rucker continued. The combination of our broad product assortment, room-sized displays, knowledgeable sales associates and competitive pricing, provide a very satisfying in-store experience for our customers. Because of the success of our retail model, our investments in additional infrastructure to support our growth, and the recent opening of our new distribution center in southern Oklahoma, we are in position to increase our expected new store openings in 2013 from 17 to 20. While this may result in some short term margin pressures, it is an important investment that will provide for increased long-term growth and build additional value for all our stakeholders.”

During the second quarter, the Company opened four new stores, which are located in Warwick RI, Glen Burnie, MD, Greenville, SC, and Plano, TX. In July, the Company opened new stores in Dallas, TX and Timonium, MD, bringing the total number of stores that the Company operates to 77 stores in 25 states.
