Harry & David Holdings, Inc. Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Thirteen Weeks and Thirty-Nine Weeks Ended March 29, 2014

Harry & David Holdings, Inc. announced consolidated earnings results for the thirteen weeks and thirty-nine weeks ended March 29, 2014. For the thirteen weeks the company reported net sales decreased 4.9% to $51.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from the prior year period. This was primarily due to the shift of Easter from the third quarter last year to the fourth quarter this year. Stores segment sales were also impacted by prior store closures. When adjusted for the Easter holiday shift Net loss increased $8.5 million during the 13 weeks ended March 29, 2014 compared to the prior year period. This was primarily due to a one-time tax benefit in fiscal 2013 that related to the company's emergence from bankruptcy in September 2011. Operating loss was $19,074,000 against $16,810,000 a year ago. Loss before income taxes was $19,240,000 against $17,442,000 a year ago. Net loss was $12,821,000 against $4,333,000 a year ago. LBITDA was $16,760,000 against $14,296,000 a year ago. Adjusted LBITDA was $14,954,000 against $12,784,000 a year ago. For the thirty-nine weeks the company reported net sales increased 0.4% to $343.1 million from the prior year period. This was due to increased order and buyer counts driven by improved web traffic and conversion, offset by lower Stores segment sales resulting from prior store closures and lower average transaction value. Net income decreased $9.0 million during the 39 weeks ended March 29, 2014 compared to the prior year period. This was primarily due to a one-time tax benefit in fiscal 2013 that related to the company's emergence from bankruptcy in September 2011. Operating profit was $26,617,000 against $26,569,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $24,293,000 against $24,180,000 a year ago. Net income was $16,870,000 against $25,876,000 a year ago.
