Sears Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results06:00 EDT Thursday, August 16, 2012HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears Holdings Corporation ("Holdings," "we," "us," "our" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SHLD) today reported its second quarter 2012 results. In summary, we reported:Adjusted EBITDA increased $95 million for the quarter to $153 million in 2012 versus $58 million in 2011. Domestic EBITDA increased $114 million ($144 million in 2012 versus $30 million in 2011). Sears Canada's EBITDA declined $19 million ($9 million in 2012 versus $28 million in 2011); For the quarter, margin rate increased 100 basis points and selling and administrative expenses declined; Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Holdings' shareholders for the second quarter of $132 million ($1.25 loss per diluted share) and $152 million ($1.42 loss per diluted share), in 2012 and 2011, respectively. The second quarter included an effective tax benefit rate of 39.3% in 2011 versus a benefit rate of 15.8% in 2012; Adjusted loss per diluted share from continuing operations for the second quarter of $0.86 in 2012 and $1.18 in 2011; Sears Domestic's comparable store sales declined 2.9% in the second quarter of 2012, Kmart's comparable store sales declined 4.7%, and Sears Canada's comparable store sales declined 7.1%; Continued discipline of our inventory with domestic inventory declining $512 million from the prior year balance; Liquidity of $3.1 billion with cash balances of $738 million and nearly $2.4 billion of capacity on domestic and Canadian revolving credit facilities, as well as Sears Hometown and Outlet Store transaction on track to raise $446.5 million of gross proceeds; and Partial spin-off of our interest in Sears Canada expected to close in the second half of 2012 with distribution to our shareholders.Lou D'Ambrosio, Sears Holdings' Chief Executive Officer and President, said, "We continue to make progress against the priorities we outlined in our fourth quarter earnings release and call. In particular, we have improved our profit position, as we reduced expenses and expanded margin rate through more effective promotional design. We have also successfully lowered inventory, reduced debt from year end, and enhanced our liquidity. In addition, the Sears Hometown transaction remains on track to close in the third quarter. While we drive operational discipline, we are also investing in our customer experience, particularly through our ShopYourWay membership program and Integrated Retail. Our focus is on providing clear benefits to our members and customers, and delivering an excellent and seamless experience across the store, online, mobile and in the home."Second Quarter Revenues and Comparable Store SalesRevenues decreased $671 million to $9.5 billion for the quarter ended July 28, 2012. The decline in revenue was primarily due to lower domestic comparable store sales for the quarter and the effect of having fewer Kmart and Sears Full-line stores in operation. Sears Canada's comparable store sales also decreased and included a decline of $55 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Domestic comparable store sales declined 3.7%, comprised of declines of 2.9% at Sears Domestic and 4.7% at Kmart, and were driven by four primary factors. The largest impact was in consumer electronics, which continues to be negatively impacted by price compression. Lawn and garden also declined due to drought conditions experienced throughout the country. Part of the decline was due to lower clearance sales activity primarily in the apparel categories due to improved inventory positions in seasonal merchandise. Lastly, pharmacy sales declined due to a conversion of brand name drugs to equivalent generic drugs. The aforementioned items accounted for over half of the decline at Kmart and adjusted for these items, Sears Domestic comparable store sales were up over the prior year. Sears Canada's comparable store sales decreased 7.1% for the quarter primarily due to sales decreases in women's apparel, tools and lawn and garden, home decor and men's apparel partially offset by improved performance in home appliances and mattresses.Operating LossOperating loss was $103 million and $191 million for the quarters ended July 28, 2012 and July 30, 2011, respectively. The improvement in operating loss of $88 million was due to the reduction in selling and administrative expenses and an improvement in gross margin rate, which was partially offset by a decline in gross margin dollars driven by lower overall sales. For the quarter, our gross margin decreased $70 million to $2.5 billion in 2012. The decrease was primarily driven by declines at Sears Canada. Sears Canada's gross margin decreased due to the decline in overall sales, as well as margin rate and included a decrease of $16 million related to the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. Gross margin at Kmart declined despite an increase in margin rate. Sears Domestic's gross margin improved as margin rate increases more than offset the decline in overall sales. Gross margin for 2011 included charges of $22 million related to store closures. Sears Canada's gross margin rate declined 180 basis points for the second quarter as a result of rate declines in electronics, jewelry, accessories and luggage, fitness and recreation. Kmart and Sears Domestic's gross margin rates improved 60 basis points and 210 basis points, respectively, during the second quarter mainly due to lower clearance activity in the apparel business. Kmart and Sears also benefited from improved margins in the toys and home appliance categories, respectively.Domestic selling and administrative expenses decreased $123 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011 predominately due to decreases in payroll and advertising expenses, which were partially offset by higher pension expense. Selling and administrative expenses included expenses related to domestic pension plans, store closings and severance of $59 million and $36 million for 2012 and 2011, respectively. Selling and administrative expenses at Sears Canada for the quarter decreased $41 million compared to the prior year quarter, and included a decrease of $15 million related to the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. On a Canadian dollar basis, selling and administrative expenses decreased by $26 million, primarily driven by decreases in advertising and payroll expenses. Operating loss for both the second quarter of 2012 and 2011 included expenses related to domestic pension plans, store closings and severance which aggregated to $66 million. Operating loss for the second quarter of 2011 also included a gain on the sales of assets of $21 million. See the attached schedule, "Adjusted Earnings per Share," for a reconciliation from GAAP to as adjusted amounts, including adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations.Our effective tax benefit rate was 15.8% and 39.3% for the second quarter of 2012 and 2011, respectively. The current year tax rate was impacted by the establishment of a valuation allowance in 2011 against certain deferred income tax assets and the utilization of part of our net operating loss deferred tax asset in 2012.Financial Position Rob Schriesheim, Sears Holdings' Chief Financial Officer, said, "We continued to improve our EBITDA performance and strengthen our liquidity position during the quarter. For the first half, our domestic adjusted EBITDA has increased $250 million over the prior year. We have outperformed our previously announced cost reduction targets by reducing domestic expenses by over $300 million, some of which flow through cost of goods sold. To date we have enhanced our liquidity by $1.2 billion and have progressed with our plans to unlock value in our portfolio of assets. We continue to make progress towards completing the Sears Hometown and Outlet Store transaction, which we expect will raise $446.5 million in gross proceeds, and the partial spin-off of our interest in Sears Canada to our shareholders. We expect to close the Sears Hometown and Outlet Store transaction in the third quarter of 2012 and complete the Sears Canada partial spin-off in the second half of 2012. In the first half of 2012, we focused on operational productivity and achieved improved margin rates and reduced expenses and intend to maintain this focus on financial discipline for the remainder of the year."We had cash balances of $738 million at July 28, 2012 ($406 million domestic and $332 million at Sears Canada) as compared to $754 million at January 28, 2012. The decrease in cash during the first half of 2012 was primarily due to uses of cash for repayments of long-term debt of $231 million, contributions to our pension and post-retirement benefit plans of $164 million, capital expenditures of $161 million and other working capital needs, partially offset by cash generated from the sales of properties. On July 9, 2012, Sears Holdings Corporation disclosed that its minimum contribution to its domestic pension plan for fiscal 2013 is now estimated to be between $380 million and $430 million, down from $740 million, due to changes in federal legislation signed into law on July 6, 2012, which allows pension plan sponsors to use higher interest rate assumptions in valuing plan liabilities and determining funding obligations. This estimate and the actual timing and amount of required plan contributions are dependent upon many factors, including returns on invested assets, the level of certain market interest rates, the discount rate used to determine pension obligations, the regulations to be adopted that implement the legislation, and other regulatory actions. In addition, we may elect, in our discretion, to contribute more to our pension plan than the minimum amounts required under applicable law.Merchandise inventories at July 28, 2012 were $8.7 billion, as compared to $9.3 billion at July 30, 2011. Domestic inventory decreased $512 million to $7.9 billion at July 28, 2012 driven by both improved productivity and store closures. Sears Domestic inventory decreased in all categories, with the most notable decreases in the electronics and footwear categories. Kmart inventory decreased in virtually all categories with the most notable decreases in consumer electronics and pharmacy and drug. Sears Canada's inventory levels decreased $97 million to $775 million at July 28, 2012, primarily as a result of the continued improvement in inventory productivity achieved through both a reduction in inventory purchases and the disposition of excess inventory.Total debt (consisting of short-term borrowings, long-term debt and capital lease obligations) was $3.3 billion at July 28, 2012, compared to $3.5 billion at January 28, 2012. Availability under our credit facilities was $2.1 billion ($1.6 billion domestic and $0.5 billion at Sears Canada).Adjusted EBITDAIn addition to our net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, for purposes of evaluating operating performance, we use an Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") measurement.Adjusted EBITDA is computed as net income (loss) attributable to Sears Holdings Corporation appearing on the statements of operations excluding income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest, income from discontinued operations, net of tax, income tax (expense) benefit, interest expense, interest and investment income, other income (loss), depreciation and amortization and gain on sales of assets. In addition, it is adjusted to exclude certain significant items as set forth below. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the operating performance of our businesses, as well as executive compensation metrics, for comparable periods. Adjusted EBITDA should not be used by investors or other third parties as the sole basis for formulating investment decisions as it excludes a number of important cash and non-cash recurring items.While Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measurement, management believes that it is an important indicator of operating performance because:EBITDA excludes the effects of financing and investing activities by eliminating the effects of interest and depreciation costs; Management considers gains/(losses) on the sale of assets to result from investing decisions rather than ongoing operations; and Other significant items, while periodically affecting our results, may vary significantly from period to period and have a disproportionate effect in a given period, which affects the comparability of results.
