Total revenues from continuing operations for the Company’s fiscal 2010 fourth quarter were $165.4 million, down 4.1 percent compared with $172.5 million in the prior year period.

Including discontinued operations, net loss for the year, was $4.2 million, or ($0.07) per share, compared with a net loss, including discontinued operations, of $98.4 million, or ($1.55) per share, in the prior year. For the quarter, net loss was $5.0 million, or ($0.08) per share, compared with a net loss of $22.2 million, or ($0.35) per share, in the prior year period.

Jim McCann, CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, said, “Throughout fiscal 2010, consumer discretionary spending continued to be impacted by the uncertainty in the macro economy. As a result, total revenues and profitability were below our expectations for the fiscal fourth quarter and the full year, particularly in our core Consumer Floral business category.”

McCann noted that results in the Company’s Consumer Floral business were also impacted by lower gross profit margins, reflecting promotions and the elimination of high-margin commission revenue associated with a third-party marketing program that the Company discontinued at the end of the fiscal second quarter. Despite these conditions, during the fiscal year, the Company achieved:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $28.6 million,
  • Positive adjusted EPS,
  • Free Cash Flow of approximately $25 million for the year, and
  • A reduction of more than $32 million in total outstanding debt.

These results reflect solid performance in the BloomNet wire service business and strong bottom-line results in the Company’s Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets category. Free cash flow benefited significantly from the Company’s focused management of the discontinued Home and Children’s Gifts business, which was sold in January, as well as reductions in capital spending and working capital.

“As we manage our business in what continues to be a challenging economic landscape, we remain focused on the three principals that we believe will enable us to achieve long-term, profitable growth. These are:
  • Know and Take Care of Our Customer – evidenced by the recent number one ranking in customer satisfaction and service that we received from the STELLA Service independent rating agency.
  • Maintain and Enhance our Financial Strength and Flexibility – where we completed the sale of our non-strategic Home and Children’s Gifts business using the proceeds to further pay down our term debt, strengthening our balance sheet and revising our bank credit facility to provide additional flexibility, and
  • Continue to Innovate and Invest for the Future
    • in new technology opportunities such as mobile e-commerce where we were awarded the Retail Info Systems 2010 Mobile App of the Year in the Best Shopping category for 1-800-FLOWERS.COM mobile site,
    • in the successful launch of our new 1-800-Baskets.com brand in November, and
    • the development of our Fannie May retail store franchising program which is being launched in the current fiscal 2011 first quarter.

“During fiscal 2011, we plan to further invest in these initiatives in combination with additional efforts underway to broaden our product offerings and expand the business channels in which we operate. We believe the steps we are taking now will provide additional leverage to drive improved top and bottom line performance as the economy improves and thereby enable us to emerge from the current challenging economy with an even stronger position as the world’s leading florist and gift shop,” said McCann.

Category Results:

The Company provides selected financial results for its Floral and Gifts business categories in the tables attached to this release and as follows. (Note: Comparative results have been adjusted to reflect the shift of the Company’s gift basket business from the Consumer Floral category to the Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets category and certain other prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform with current year presentation.)
  • Consumer Floral: For fiscal 2010, revenues were $366.5 million compared with $394.8 million in the prior year. Revenues for the fiscal fourth quarter were $117.3 million compared with $124.1 million in the prior year period. Gross profit margin for fiscal 2010 was 35.3 percent, down 170 basis points compared with 37 percent in fiscal 2009. For the fourth quarter, gross profit margin was 33.8 percent, down 320 basis points compared with 37 percent in the prior year period. The decline in gross profit margin, particularly in the fourth quarter, was primarily related to one-time charge of $1.9 million for the early termination of the Company’s marketing agreement with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and the loss of high-margin revenues, compared with the prior year period, associated with a third-party marketing program that was ended in December 2009. Category contribution margin for the fiscal year was $22.1 million compared with $38.8 million in the prior year. For the fiscal fourth quarter, category contribution margin was $7.5 million, compared with $13.3 million in the prior year period. The Company defines category contribution margin as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, before the allocation of corporate overhead expenses and goodwill and intangible impairment.
  • BloomNet Wire Service: For fiscal 2010, revenues were $61.9 million, compared with $63.5 million in the prior year. Revenues for the fiscal fourth quarter were $15.6 million, compared with $16.1 million in the prior year period. Gross profit margin for fiscal 2010 was 56.4 percent compared with 55.7 percent in the prior year. For the fiscal fourth quarter, gross profit margin was 57 percent compared with 55.2 percent in the prior year period. Category contribution margin for fiscal 2010 was $19.1 million, compared with $18.8 million in the prior year period. For the fiscal fourth quarter, category contribution margin was $5.0 million, compared with $4.2 million in the prior year period. This improvement reflected product and service revenue mix and pricing initiatives.
  • Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets: For fiscal 2010, revenues were $239.9 million, compared with $258.7 million in the prior year. Revenues for the fiscal fourth quarter were $32.4 million, compared with $32.8 million in the prior year period. Gross profit margin for fiscal 2010 increased 340 basis points to 42.1 percent, compared with 38.7 percent the prior year period. For the fiscal fourth quarter, gross profit margin increased 790 basis points to 43.7 percent, compared with 35.8 percent in the prior year period. The increases in gross profit margin for both the fiscal fourth quarter and full year were primarily related to product mix, with increased ecommerce sales and lower wholesale revenues as a percent of total revenues as well as significant improvements in manufacturing productivity across all brands. Category contribution margin for fiscal 2010 was $27.3 million compared with $24.6 million in the prior year period. For the fiscal fourth quarter, category contribution margin was $0.4 million, compared with a loss of $2.7 million in the prior year period.

Customer Metrics

In terms of its key customer metrics from continuing operations, the Company said 4.9 million e-commerce customers placed orders during fiscal 2010, of which approximately 52.0 percent were repeat customers. During fiscal 2010, the Company attracted more than 2.3 million new customers. For the fiscal fourth quarter, approximately 1.7 million e-commerce customers placed orders with repeat customers representing 61 percent of the total. During the quarter, the Company attracted more than 650,000 new e-commerce customers.
  • Discontinued Operations Results: Total revenues for the Company’s Home and Children’s Gifts segment in fiscal 2010 (through the sale of the division in January 2010) were $87.9 million, compared with $143.7 million for the full year in fiscal 2009. Gross profit margin for the year was 46.6 percent compared with 46.9 percent in the prior year. Contribution margin for the year was $4.6 million compared with a loss of $2.6 million in the prior year.

Company Guidance:

Reflecting the continued uncertainty in the consumer economy, the Company is modifying how it provides forward guidance compared with past practices. This includes the elimination of specific guidance for revenues, EPS, EBITDA and free cash flow. In terms of its outlook for fiscal 2011, the Company does not anticipate significant improvements in consumer demand for discretionary purchases and therefore expects continued challenges to top line growth. During fiscal 2011, the Company plans to:
  • Continue its programs to enhance operating efficiencies by leveraging its business platform;
  • Improve its gross profit margins through a number of initiatives, including reduced promotional activity and enhanced manufacturing operations, and
  • Continue to invest and innovate for the future, including expanding its fast growing social and mobile commerce initiatives, growing its new 1-800-BASKETS.COM business and rolling out a new franchising program for the Fannie May brand.

For fiscal 2011, the Company expects to maintain capital expenditures at approximately $15 million.

Definitions:

EBITDA: Net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company presents EBITDA and adjusted financial information (Adjusted Net (Loss) Income from continuing operations, Adjusted EPS from continuing operations, Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, and Adjusted EPS – collectively “adjusted financial information”) because it considers such information a meaningful supplemental measure of its performance and believes it is frequently used by the investment community in the evaluation of similarly situated companies. The Company also uses EBITDA and adjusted financial information as one of the factors used to determine the total amount of bonuses available to be awarded to executive officers and other employees. The Company’s credit agreement uses EBITDA and adjusted financial information to measure compliance with covenants such as interest coverage and debt incurrence. EBITDA and adjusted financial information is also used by the Company to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates. EBITDA and adjusted financial information have limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations of EBITDA are: (a) EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs; (b) EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company's debts; and (c) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. EBITDA and adjusted financial information should only be used on a supplemental basis combined with GAAP results when evaluating the Company's performance.

Corporate expenses consist of the Company’s enterprise shared service cost centers, and include, among other items, Information Technology, Human Resources,
Accounting and Finance, Legal, Executive and Customer Service Center functions, as well as Share-Based Compensation. In order to leverage the Company’s
infrastructure, these functions are operated under a centralized management platform, providing support services throughout the organization. The costs of these functions,
other than those of the Customer Service Center, which are allocated directly to the above categories based upon usage, are included within corporate expenses as they are
not directly allocable to a specific category.
