KIRKLAND'S HOME REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2022 RESULTS


NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Kirkland's, Inc. (Nasdaq: KIRK) ("Kirkland's Home" or the "Company"), a specialty retailer of home décor and furnishings, announced financial results for the 13-week and 26-week periods ended July 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Summary

Management Commentary
"Our second quarter efforts were focused on re-engaging with our customers both in-store and online to drive sales in a challenging consumer spending environment," said Steve "Woody" Woodward, president and CEO of Kirkland's Home. "Throughout the quarter we intentionally elevated promotions to work through inventory levels, resulting in compressed margins but an improved sales trend from the first quarter across our omni-channel platform. Specifically, we experienced notable sales momentum in our furniture category, which gives us confidence that we remain on the right track to drive growth in this segment of the market. In addition, our in-home delivery program has been showing steady adoption as we work to streamline processes and improve efficiency.

"Looking forward, early indicators are showing demand for our harvest collection, and we are pleased to report that we experienced improvements in sales and gross profit margin in the first few weeks of August. With the majority of our harvest inventory already in place and our holiday inventory on schedule, we believe we are in a healthy position to fulfill the expected seasonal demand in the back half of the year.

"For the remainder of fiscal 2022, we are focused on improving our liquidity position and appropriately managing our inventory. As the broader consumer environment remains volatile, we also plan to continue actively adjusting our promotional strategy to drive sales and work through our inventory. We feel confident in our ability to maintain a lean operational cost structure and drive cash flow during the upcoming harvest and holiday seasons as we work to begin paying down our borrowings. Overall, we are committed to our long-term transformation strategy and unlocking the full potential of Kirkland's Home."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Net sales in the second quarter of 2022 were $102.1 million, compared to $114.8 million in the prior year quarter. Comparable same-store sales decreased 8.6%, including a 9.1% decline in e-commerce sales. The decrease was primarily driven by a decline in traffic and conversion, partially offset by an increase in average ticket. 

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 was $18.5 million, or 18.1% of net sales, compared to $39.7 million, or 34.6% of net sales, in the prior year quarter. The decline was primarily a result of increased promotional activity to move through inventory, higher distribution costs and increased shrink, as well as the impact of lower sales on certain fixed cost components.

Operating loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $21.8 million compared to operating income of $0.2 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily a result of the aforementioned decline in gross profit and a larger percentage of fixed operating costs relative to the lower sales base.

EBITDA in the second quarter of 2022 was a loss of $17.5 million compared to income of $5.4 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2022 was a loss of $16.4 million compared to income of $5.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $25.7 million, or a loss of $2.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.6 million, or earnings of $0.04 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $16.7 million, or  a loss of $1.31 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $0.1 million, or a loss of $0.01 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter.

At July 30, 2022, the Company had a cash balance of $10.3 million and total liquidity of $30.3 million, with $55.0 million of outstanding debt under its $75 million senior secured revolving credit facility. The Company did not repurchase any shares of stock during the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this earnings release and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating (loss) income, adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted diluted (loss) earnings per share. These measures are not in accordance with, and are not intended as alternatives to, GAAP financial measures. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believes that they provide useful information to analysts and investors, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating the Company's operational performance.

The Company defines EBITDA as net income or loss before interest, provision for income tax, and depreciation and amortization, adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA with non-GAAP adjustments and adjusted operating (loss) income as operating (loss) income with non-GAAP adjustments. The Company defines adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted diluted (loss) earnings per share by adjusting the applicable GAAP financial measures for non-GAAP adjustments.

Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standard meanings prescribed by GAAP. Use of these terms may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. Each non-GAAP financial measure has its limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The following table shows a reconciliation of operating (loss) income to EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating (loss) income for the 13-week and 26-week periods ended July 30, 2022 and July 31, 2021 and a reconciliation of net (loss) income and diluted (loss) earnings per share to adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted diluted (loss) earnings per share for the 13-week and 26-week periods ended July 30, 2022 and July 31, 2021:
