RadioShack Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter 2013

Concept Store Initiative to be Rolled Out More Broadly in Coming Months

FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, including total net sales and operating revenues of $805 million and net loss of $112 million. The Company also announced that it has received commitments for $835 million of a new five-year debt financing. The Company continues to address significant legacy issues as it engineers a comprehensive operational turnaround driven by the Company's five pillars: reposition the brand, revamp the product assortment, reinvigorate the store experience, operational efficiency and financial flexibility.

Joseph C. Magnacca, chief executive officer, said, "We are moving forward quickly and as planned with our turnaround efforts. As we have said, we expect our work to take several quarters and during that time our results will vary quarter to quarter as we make strategic changes to improve our long-term financial performance. This quarter reflects our strategic decision to accelerate the improvements to the product assortment in our stores by removing duplicate and unproductive inventory. The lower inventory valuations for these products and projected disposal costs resulted in an expected increase to our cost of products sold this quarter."

Mr. Magnacca continued: "We have an aggressive plan to reinvigorate our store experience this fall in nearly all of our stores. This plan builds upon the sales improvement we've seen in three concept stores and two brand statement stores. By the end of the year, we will have over 100 concept and brand statement stores open. In addition, we are currently contemporizing our stores by significantly re-merchandising inventory in a more logical manner and improving presentation. Our entire store base of nearly 4,300 stores will see improvements from these changes which are being implemented in the early part of the fourth quarter."

"We are pleased with the recently obtained commitments for new financing. We are on track to achieve the Company's previously stated objective to supplement liquidity and enhance financial flexibility for the continued execution of our operational turnaround."

Note: All comparisons are versus the same period of the prior fiscal year unless otherwise noted.

"We strongly believe our new retail and consumer-centric strategy has us heading in the right direction. We've made significant progress in the third quarter and will continue to focus on execution during the all-important holiday selling season," Mr. Magnacca concluded.

THIRD QUARTER SUMMARY

  • Total net sales and operating revenues were $805 million, compared to $898 million last year. The decline was driven by an 8.4% decrease in comparable store sales due to reduced sales for each of the Company's product platforms. The Company continued to see increased sales of prepaid mobile phones in the mobility platform and in certain signature categories including portable speakers, Apple Lightning compatible cables and adaptors during the period.
  • Gross profit was $243 million, compared with $341 million last year. Gross margin was 30.1% of net sales, compared to 38.0% last year. Gross profit and gross margin performance were negatively impacted by approximately $47 million as a result of the Company's decision to accelerate the merchandise assortment changes by removing duplicate and unproductive products. Additionally, gross profit was negatively impacted by lower sales and decreased gross profit in the postpaid wireless business.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $343 million, or 42.6% of net sales, compared with $354 million last year. The decrease was driven by fewer stores in operation and lower severance costs versus last year.
  • Operating loss was $118 million, compared to a $34 million loss last year.
  • Net loss was $112 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $47 million last year.
  • The Company continues to have a strong balance sheet and total liquidity of $613 million as of September 30, 2013.

CASH, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL SPENDING

The Company ended the third quarter with total liquidity of $613 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $316.4 million and $296.2 million of available credit under the asset-based revolving credit facility that expires in January 2016.

The Company's total debt was $499 million at September 30, 2013. On August 1, 2013, the Company repaid the $214 million remaining aggregate principal balance of the 2013 Convertible Notes at maturity. The balance of the Company's debt matures between 2016 and 2019.

Capital spending totaled $14.9 million in the third quarter compared to $16.8 million last year.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company obtained financing commitments from a consortium of lenders led by GE Capital, Corporate Finance; CIT Corporate Finance; RBS Citizens, N.A.; and Salus Capital Partners. These commitments total $835 million including a new $585 million senior secured ABL credit facility and a new $250 million secured term loan. The new debt facilities will be used to refinance the Company's existing $450 million ABL credit facility, $75 million of term loans and $100 million second lien term loan. The Company expects the new financings will provide approximately $175 million of incremental liquidity. The Company expects the new debt facilities will be closed in the fourth quarter. The new financings are subject to customary closing conditions.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
