LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second, Third and Fourth Quarters of Fiscal 2015 and for the Full Year Ending March 31, 2015

LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $47.0 million, down 43% compared to $83.0 million last year, and were not materially impacted by changes in currency exchange rates. U.S. segment net sales were down 47%, and international segment net sales were down 34%. Net loss per basic and diluted share was $0.23 compared to a net loss per basic and diluted share of $0.05 a year ago. Loss from operations was $25.7 million, compared to a loss from operations of $4.1 million last year. Net loss was $16.4 million, compared to a net loss of $3.3 million last year. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $16.2 million, compared to a gain of $3.4 million last year. Loss before income taxes was $26.02 million compared to $4.41 million reported a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $21.08 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $2.03 million reported a year ago. Purchases of property and equipment and other intangible assets was $7.58 million compared to $6.64 million reported a year ago. Capitalization of product costs was $4.21 million compared to $3.57 million reported a year ago. Normalized net loss was $16.26 million or $0.23 per Class A and B diluted share compared to $2.76 million or $0.04 per Class A and B diluted share reported a year ago. For the second fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2014, the company expects net sales to be in the range of $125 million to $130 million and net income per diluted share to be in the range of a loss per share of $0.03 to an income per share of $0.01. The company expects financial results to decline year-over-year in the September quarter due to remaining elevated retail inventory levels, continued challenging POS trends and the comparative timing of new product launches. In addition, sales projections have declined with the deferral of consumer electronics tablet until 2015 to allow to focus on the launch of its major new platform introduction - LeapTV. The company expects solid net sales growth in both the December and March quarters, led largely by sales of new releases including LeapTV, LeapBand, LeapPad3, LeapPad Ultra XDi and related content. The company lowered its outlook for the year given its June quarter performance, POS trends, and a very back-end loaded year with LeapTV shipping at the end of September. The company is now providing full fiscal year guidance for the 12-month period ending March 31, 2015 to align with its new fiscal year end that it announced in May. The company expects full fiscal year net sales to decline moderately year-over-year due to the elevated beginning retail inventory levels, a challenging market environment and POS trends as well as the timing of new product shipments. Partially offsetting these challenges will be the introduction of new products that expects to perform very well in the market place in fiscal 2015 and beyond. The company expects net income per share to decline year-over-year due to the net sales decline and long-term investments in the business to drive future growth. For the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, the company expects net sales to be in the range of $480 million to $505 million compared to $528 million for the 12-month period ended March 31, 2014. Net income per basic and diluted share expects to be in the range of a loss per share of $0.04 to an income per share of $0.10. For the 12-month period ended March 31, 2014, net income per diluted share (GAAP) was $1.07 and normalized net income per diluted share2 (non-GAAP) was $0.18. Capital expenditures to be in the range of $30 million to $40 million as it makes long-term, strategic investments in business, particularly in its information technology systems. Capital expenditures include purchases of property and equipment and capitalization of product costs.
