The Tile Shop Reports Third 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Net sales grew 28.3% to $56.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $44.3 million for the third quarter of 2012. The $12.5 million increase in sales was driven by an increase in comparable store sales of 14.8% or $6.6 million, and incremental net sales of $5.9 million from stores not included in the comparable stores base. For the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA grew 13.0% to $12.7 million, compared to $11.2 million in the same period of the prior year.

Robert Rucker, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our 14.8% increase in same store sales in the quarter, following a 14.3% increase in the second quarter, provides further evidence that our customers continue to embrace our retail concept in markets throughout the country. Our broad assortment of products, room-sized displays, knowledgeable sales associates and market based pricing are proving to be a winning combination in satisfying the consumers’ need for a better home improvement shopping experience. Given these results, we are continuing to execute on our aggressive growth strategy with the opening of five new stores this quarter, bringing the total number of new stores opened in 2013 to 12. While this pace of growth also brings with it a necessary level of investment, which, as expected, has modestly impacted our current operating margins, these short-term investments will result in stronger cash flow in the coming years as these stores mature.”

During the third quarter, the Company opened three stores in new markets (Dallas, Texas; Greenwood Village, Colorado; Littleton, Colorado) and two stores in existing markets (Timonium Maryland; Skokie Illinois).

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 net sales improved 25.9% to $171.8 million, compared with $136.5 million for the comparable period last year. Comparable-store sales growth for the nine months was 13.1%.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 increased 16.0%, to $44.9 million, compared to $38.7 million in the same period of the prior year.

Income from operations was $7.6 million and as a percentage of sales was 13.4% in the third quarter 2013, compared to $5.6 million and 12.6%, respectively, in the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Income from operations for the first nine months of 2013 was $30.1 million, compared to $26.9 million in the same period of 2012. The Company generated $13.0 million of operating cash flow during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

The following is a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA. See also the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section below.

Pro-Forma Non-GAAP Information

The Company presents pro–forma non-GAAP net income to provide useful information to investors regarding the Company’s normal operating performance. Pro-forma non-GAAP net income adds back the non-cash expense related to the change in warrant liability, non-recurring and unusual expenses and transaction costs, and includes a pro-forma adjustment for income tax expense as if the Company had been a "C" corporation at the beginning of each period (at an assumed combined effective tax rate of 40%).

On a pro-forma non-GAAP basis, net income for the quarter would have been $4.2 million, compared to $3.1 million in the comparable prior year period. Pro-forma non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 would have been $0.08, based on 51.9 million weighted average diluted shares. Pro-forma non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 would have been $0.06 per share. See the “Pro-forma Non-GAAP Net Income” table and the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section below for a reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP earnings.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by taking net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, and adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash change in warrant liability, non-recurring items including equity related transaction costs, deferred compensation expense, and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA margin is equal to Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. Pro-forma non-GAAP net income is determined by adding back the non-cash change in warrant liability, and non-recurring warrant related transaction costs to income before taxes calculated in accordance with GAAP and subtracting from this an estimate for income taxes as if the Company had been a “C” Corporation for all periods.

We believe that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare our performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, for purposes of determining management incentive compensation, and for budgeting and planning purposes. These measures are used in monthly financial reports prepared for management and our board of directors. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other specialty retailers, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Our management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitations of these non-GAAP financial measures are that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our consolidated financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
