Nordstrom Second Quarter 2014 Earnings In Line With Expectations

Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) today reported earnings per diluted share of $0.95 for the second quarter ended August 2, 2014, compared with earnings per diluted share of $0.93 for the second quarter ended August 3, 2013. Total Company net sales of $3.3 billion for the second quarter increased 6.2 percent compared with net sales of $3.1 billion during the same period in fiscal 2013. Total Company comparable sales for the second quarter increased 3.3 percent.

On July 31, 2014, Nordstrom announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire Trunk Club, a personalized clothing service for men. Founded in 2009, Trunk Club delivers a stylist service that combines the convenience of online with a high-touch, personalized shopping experience. Trunk Club is a high-growth company and expects to achieve operational profitability and more than double its annual sales to over $100 million. The Company believes this acquisition represents a natural extension of its core business, aligns with its strategic priorities around a relevant customer experience and accelerates entry into this fast-growing market.

The Company will acquire Trunk Club for $350 million in Nordstrom stock, a portion of which is retention-based and subject to future vesting. In addition, the transaction includes a long-term management incentive plan of up to $100 million subject to Trunk Club's performance. The transaction is expected to be dilutive to earnings per diluted share for the next several years primarily due to share issuance, performance incentives and amortization of intangibles. The Company estimates the acquisition, including Trunk Club’s projected operating performance, will reduce earnings per diluted share in fiscal 2014 by 3 to 5 percent.

Trunk Club will operate as an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary and will be managed by its current leadership. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter, subject to closing conditions including customary regulatory and shareholder approvals.

SECOND QUARTER SUMMARY

  • Second quarter net earnings of $183 million were comparable to the same period last year. Earnings before interest and taxes were $331 million, or 10.1 percent of net sales, compared with $335 million, or 10.8 percent of net sales, for the same quarter last year. This quarter’s net earnings included planned additional fulfillment and technology investments to improve service and experience across channels and approximately $5 million in incremental infrastructure and pre-opening costs related to the upcoming entry into Canada.
  • Nordstrom comparable sales, which consist of the full-line and Direct businesses, increased 2.7 percent. Top-performing merchandise categories included Cosmetics, Accessories and Men's Apparel. Nordstrom comparable sales during the Anniversary Sale, which is the Company’s largest sale event of the year, increased 3.6 percent.
  • Full-line comparable sales for the second quarter decreased 1.2 percent. The Southeast and Southwest regions were the top-performing geographic areas.
  • Direct net sales increased 22 percent in the second quarter, primarily driven by expanded merchandise selection.
  • Nordstrom Rack net sales increased $114 million, or 18 percent, compared with the same period in fiscal 2013, reflecting incremental volume from existing stores and the impact of 25 store openings since the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Nordstrom Rack comparable sales increased 4.0 percent.
  • The Nordstrom Rewards loyalty program continues to contribute to overall results, with members shopping more frequently and spending more on average than non-members. The Company opened nearly 370,000 new accounts in the second quarter, an increase of 18 percent compared with the same period last year. With 4.1 million active members, sales from members in the second quarter increased 11 percent in the second quarter and represented 44 percent of sales, from 42 percent for the same period last year.
  • Gross profit, as a percentage of net sales, of 35.4 percent decreased 7 basis points compared with the same period in fiscal 2013 primarily due to planned occupancy costs associated with Nordstrom Rack’s accelerated store expansion.
  • Ending inventory per square foot increased 19.2 percent compared with the same period in fiscal 2013, which outpaced the sales per square foot increase of 2.7 percent. The difference primarily reflected planned investments to fuel off-price growth, including increased levels of pack and hold inventory at Nordstrom Rack. The inventory increase also included planned investments in the full-price business to drive online growth and in well-performing merchandise categories.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of net sales, of 28.3 percent increased 66 basis points compared with the same period in fiscal 2013, primarily related to ongoing investments in fulfillment and technology and the planned entry into Canada. In addition, the second quarter of fiscal 2013 included a reduction in variable expenses related to company performance.
  • During the quarter, the Company repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock for $119 million. A total of $359 million remains under existing share repurchase board authorization. The actual number and timing of future share repurchases, if any, will be subject to market and economic conditions and applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules.
  • Return on invested capital (ROIC) for the 12 months ended August 2, 2014 was 13.2 percent, which decreased from 14.4 percent for the same period last year. This decrease reflected increased capital expenditures related to store expansion and online growth. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the closest GAAP measure is included below.

EXPANSION UPDATE

Nordstrom plans to open three full-line stores (The Woodlands, Texas; Calgary, Canada and Jacksonville, Florida) later this year. To date in fiscal 2014, the Company opened 11 Nordstrom Rack stores and plans to open 16 additional stores during the remainder of the year. In the second quarter of 2014, the Company opened a Nordstrom Rack store in Manhasset, New York.

RETURN ON INVESTED CAPITAL (NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE)
(unaudited; dollar and share amounts in millions)

 

We believe ROIC is a useful financial measure for investors in evaluating the efficiency and effectiveness of our use of capital and believe ROIC is an important component of shareholders' return over the long term. In addition, we incorporate ROIC in our executive incentive compensation measures. For the 12 fiscal months ended August 2, 2014, our ROIC decreased to 13.2% compared with 14.4% for the 12 fiscal months ended August 3, 2013. This decrease reflected increased capital expenditures related to store expansion and online growth.
 

ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, return on assets, net earnings, total assets or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our method of determining non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies' methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to ROIC is return on assets. The following is a reconciliation of the components of ROIC and return on assets:
 
12 Fiscal Months Ended
August 2, 2014   August 3, 2013
Net earnings $ 727 $ 760
Add: income tax expense 453 469
Add: interest expense 156   158  
Earnings before interest and income tax expense 1,336 1,387
 
Add: rent expense 133 116
Less: estimated depreciation on capitalized operating leases1 (71 ) (62 )
Net operating profit 1,398 1,441
 
Estimated income tax expense2 (536 ) (550 )
Net operating profit after tax $ 862   $ 891  
 
Average total assets3 $ 8,618 $ 8,216
Less: average non-interest-bearing current liabilities4 (2,577 ) (2,355 )
Less: average deferred property incentives3 (495 ) (488 )
Add: average estimated asset base of capitalized operating leases5 1,005   831  
Average invested capital $ 6,551   $ 6,204  
 
Return on assets 8.4 % 9.2 %
ROIC 13.2 % 14.4 %
 

1Capitalized operating leases is our best estimate of the asset base we would record for our leases that are classified as operating if they had met the criteria for a capital lease, or we had purchased the property. Asset base is calculated as described in footnote 5 below.

2Based upon our effective tax rate multiplied by the net operating profit for the 12 fiscal months ended August 2, 2014 and August 3, 2013.

3Based upon the trailing 12-month average.

4Based upon the trailing 12-month average for accounts payable, accrued salaries, wages and related benefits, and other current liabilities.

5Based upon the trailing 12-month average of the monthly asset base. The asset base for each month is calculated as the trailing 12-months of rent expense multiplied by eight. The multiple of eight times rent expense is a commonly used method of estimating the asset base we would record for our capitalized operating leases described in footnote 1.

ADJUSTED DEBT TO EBITDAR (NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE)
(unaudited; amounts in millions)

 

Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR is one of our key financial metrics, and we believe that our debt levels are best analyzed using this measure. Our goal is to manage debt levels to maintain an investment-grade credit rating and operate with an efficient capital structure. In evaluating our debt levels, this measure provides a reflection of our credit worthiness that could impact our credit rating and borrowing costs. We also have a debt covenant that requires an adjusted debt to EBITDAR leverage ratio of less than four times. As of August 2, 2014 our Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR was 2.1 compared with 2.0 as of August 3, 2013.
     

Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, debt to net earnings, net earnings, debt or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our method of determining non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies' methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR is debt to net earnings. The following is a reconciliation of the components of Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR and debt to net earnings:
 
2014(1 )   2013(1 )  
Debt $ 3,118 $ 3,122
Add: estimated capitalized operating lease liability2 1,060 926
Less: fair value hedge adjustment included in long-term debt (42

)

 
(54

)

 
Adjusted Debt $ 4,136     $ 3,994    
 
Net earnings $ 727 $ 760
Add: income tax expense 453 469
Add: interest expense, net 155     156    
Earnings before interest and income taxes 1,335 1,385
 
Add: depreciation and amortization expenses 478 442
Add: rent expense 133 116
Add: non-cash acquisition-related charges 5     9    
EBITDAR $ 1,951     $ 1,952    
 
Debt to Net Earnings 4.3 4.1
Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR 2.1 2.0
 

1The components of Adjusted Debt are as of August 2, 2014 and August 3, 2013, while the components of EBITDAR are for the 12 months ended August 2, 2014 and August 3, 2013.

2Based upon the estimated lease liability as of the end of the period, calculated as the trailing 12-months of rent expense multiplied by eight. The multiple of eight times rent expense is a commonly used method of estimating the debt we would record for our leases that are classified as operating if they had met the criteria for a capital lease, or we had purchased the property.

FREE CASH FLOW (NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE)
(unaudited; amounts in millions)
 

Free Cash Flow is one of our key liquidity measures, and when used in conjunction with GAAP measures, provides investors with a meaningful analysis of our ability to generate cash from our business. For the six months ended August 2, 2014, we had negative Free Cash Flow of $(194) compared with $(11) for the six months ended August 3, 2013.
 

Free Cash Flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, operating cash flows or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our method of determining non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies' methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Free Cash Flow is net cash provided by operating activities. The following is a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to Free Cash Flow:
 
Six Months Ended
August 2, 2014   August 3, 2013
Net cash provided by operating activities $ 369 $ 547
Less: capital expenditures (376 ) (427 )
Less: cash dividends paid (125 ) (117 )
Less: change in credit card receivables originated at third parties (77 ) (70 )
Add: change in cash book overdrafts 15   56  
Free Cash Flow $ (194 ) $ (11 )
 
Net cash used in investing activities $ (462 ) $ (504 )
Net cash used in financing activities $ (329 ) $ (200 )
