Rhea-AI Summary
Lovesac Company (LOVE) reports a 5.0% growth in net sales for the fourth quarter and a 7.5% growth for fiscal year 2024, reaching over $700 million in revenues. The company plans to enhance its core products and invest in innovation to drive profitable growth in fiscal 2025.
Positive
  • Strong net sales growth of 5.0% for the fourth quarter and 7.5% for fiscal year 2024.
  • Gross profit increased by 11.9% in the fourth quarter and 16.7% for the fiscal year.
  • Operating income improved to $40.4 million in the fourth quarter.
  • Net income rose to $31.0 million in the fourth quarter.
  • Significant increase in showroom net sales and internet sales.
  • Advertising and marketing expenses increased by 14.2% in the fourth quarter.
  • Cash and cash equivalents balance improved to $87.0 million as of February 4, 2024.
  • Company provides guidance for fiscal 2025 with net sales expected in the range of $700 million to $770 million.
Negative
  • None.

The Lovesac Company's announcement of its fiscal 2024 financial results highlights a net sales increase of 7.5%, surpassing $700 million in revenues. This is particularly notable given the reported category decline in the home furnishing sector. The company's strategy of investing in an omni-channel approach and product innovation appears to be a key driver for its growth. The mention of a '53rd week' suggests a potential one-off benefit to the financial results, which investors should consider when comparing year-over-year performance.

One area of concern is the decrease in net income despite the increase in sales, which may reflect rising costs or investments that could impact profit margins. The increase in SG&A expenses and advertising costs as a percentage of net sales indicates higher operational spending, which could be a strategic move to capture more market share but also raises questions about cost management and its impact on profitability.

The reported increase in gross margin, attributed to decreased inbound transportation costs, is a positive indicator of cost efficiency improvements. However, the uptick in outbound transportation and warehousing costs, along with increased promotional discounting, could erode some of these gains. Investors should consider the sustainability of the gross margin improvements in the context of the broader industry trends and potential inflationary pressures.

The cash and cash equivalents balance shows a significant increase, which may provide the company with a cushion for future investments or economic downturns. However, the planned decrease in inventory levels might suggest a cautious approach to demand forecasting or an effort to improve inventory turnover. The amended credit agreement with Wells Fargo also indicates proactive financial management, potentially improving financial flexibility.

The expansion in showroom count and the growth in internet sales reflect a successful omni-channel retail strategy, which is important for modern retailers. The decrease in omni-channel comparable net sales, however, could be a red flag indicating a potential saturation or competitive challenges in existing markets. The company's focus on product innovation and the launch of new products could be a response to this and a way to maintain customer interest and market relevance.

For the fiscal year 2025, the guidance provided includes a range for net sales, adjusted EBITDA and net income, which offers investors a view of the company's expectations in the absence of the '53rd week' benefit. The projected net loss in the first quarter of fiscal 2025 suggests a seasonal impact or upfront investments that may affect short-term profitability but could be part of a longer-term growth strategy.

Fourth Quarter Net Sales Growth of 5.0%
Fiscal Year Net Sales Growth of 7.5%

STAMFORD, Conn., April 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lovesac Company (Nasdaq: LOVE) (“Lovesac” or the “Company”), the home furnishing brand best known for its Sactionals, The World's Most Adaptable Couch, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2024, which ended February 4, 2024.

Note: Lovesac's fourth quarter and fiscal 2024 results contain an additional, non-comparable week, or the "53rd week”, when compared to the fourth quarter and full year results for the respective 52- and 13-week periods ended January 29, 2023 (“fiscal 2023”), and full year guidance for the 52-week fiscal year ending February 2, 2025 (“fiscal 2025”). Unless stated otherwise, financial metrics discussed in this release, such as net sales, operating income, net income and net income per share, are calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and therefore include the 53rd week for the applicable fiscal 2024 periods.

Shawn Nelson, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Lovesac delivered market leading fiscal fourth quarter and full year 2024 sales performances. We surpassed $700 million in revenues for the fiscal year, representing a net sales increase of $49.1 million, or 7.5%, despite another year of significant category decline for the home furnishing sector. Interest in – and passion for – the Lovesac brand, from new and existing customers alike, continues to grow. We will fortify our momentum by doubling-down on what we do best: strengthening our unique omni-channel infinity flywheel, reinforcing our designed for life platform, investing in genuine innovation, and making the strategic investments necessary to profitably scale our brand and business for years to come.”

Mr. Nelson continued, “Lovesac enters fiscal 2025 in a position of strength with a truly massive opportunity ahead. We’re primed to over-participate in an eventual category rebound through continued market share gains driven by our core platform. In addition, this fiscal year, we plan to enhance our core Sactional and Sac platforms with an impressive pace of complementary product innovation launches, positioning us well to build-on our track record of delivering profitable growth.”

Internet net sales increased 2.2%, and our “Other” channel which principally includes pop-up-shops and shop-in-shops decreased 24.6%.

Gross margin increased 360 basis points to 59.7% of net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2024 from 56.1% of net sales in the prior year period primarily driven by a decrease of 550 basis points in inbound transportation costs, partially offset by an increase of 100 basis points in outbound transportation and warehousing costs and a decrease of 90 basis points in product margin driven by higher promotional discounting.
  • SG&A expense as a percent of net sales increased by 170 basis points due to net investments in payroll, infrastructure, selling related expenses, restatement related costs, and other professional fees, partially offset by a reduction in equity incentive compensation.
  • Advertising and marketing expense increased 14.2% due to continued investments in marketing spend to support our net sales growth. As a percent of net sales, advertising and marketing increased by 100 basis points.
  • Operating income was $40.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2024 compared to $36.5 million in the prior year period. Operating margin was 16.0% of net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2024 compared to 15.4% of net sales in the prior year period.

  • Gross profit increased $57.3 million, or 16.7%, to $401.0 million in fiscal 2024 from $343.7 million in the prior year period. Gross margin increased 450 basis points to 57.3% of net sales in fiscal 2024 from 52.8% of net sales in the prior year period primarily driven by a decrease of 670 basis points in inbound transportation costs, partially offset by an increase of 120 basis points in outbound transportation and warehousing costs and a decrease of 100 basis points in product margin driven by higher promotional discounting.
  • SG&A expense as a percent of net sales increased by 450 basis points due to investments in payroll, selling related expenses, infrastructure, restatement related costs, and other professional fees, partially offset by a reduction in equity incentive compensation. Selling related expenses includes customer financing fees which increased $5.8 million, or 19.5%, to $35.5 million in fiscal 2024 from $29.7 million in the prior year period.

During fiscal 2024, the Company recorded an income tax expense of $8.0 million, compared to $10.4 million for the prior year period. The change in provision is primarily driven by lower net income before taxes, partially offset by a decrease in the effective tax rate.

All other terms of the credit agreement remain unchanged.
  • Total merchandise inventory was $98.4 million as of February 4, 2024 as compared to $119.6 million as of January 29, 2023 principally related to a planned stock inventory decrease of $11.0 million coupled with a decrease in freight capitalization of $12.1 million related to the decrease in inbound freight expense.

Non-GAAP Information:

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as a non-GAAP financial measure by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) that is a supplemental measure of financial performance not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include management fees, equity-based compensation expense, write-offs of property and equipment, deferred rent, financing expenses and certain other charges and gains that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance. We have reconciled this non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure within the schedules attached hereto. Statements regarding our expectations as to fiscal 2024 Adjusted EBITDA do not include certain charges and costs. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include equity-based compensation expense and certain other charges and gains that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance. We are not able to provide a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures without unreasonable effort because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of these future charges and costs. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing of certain events that have not yet occurred and are out of the Company’s control.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of our business, facilitate a more meaningful comparison of our actual results on a period-over-period basis and provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We have provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of our ongoing operations alongside GAAP measures such as gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss). Other companies in our industry may calculate these items differently than we do. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as net income (loss) or net income (loss) per share as a measure of financial performance, cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.
