FORT WAYNE, Ind., June 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vera Bradley, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRA) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended May 1, 2021.

In this release, Vera Bradley, Inc. or “the Company” refers to the entire enterprise and includes both the Vera Bradley and Pura Vida brands.  Vera Bradley on a stand-alone basis refers to the Vera Bradley brand.

First Quarter Comments

“We outperformed our revenue and earnings expectations in the first quarter,” noted Rob Wallstrom, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.  “Consumer confidence, traffic, and spending grew as vaccines became more widely available;  government stimulus funds were distributed; and customers began returning to work, social events, and travel.  We expanded our consolidated gross margin rate and prudently managed our expenses.” 

“As a reminder, our enterprise’s forward-looking strategy is to be a purpose-driven, multi-lifestyle brand, high-growth company,” Wallstrom continued.  “Our strong cash position, debt-free balance sheet, and ability to generate free cash flow will allow us to continue to invest in both our Vera Bradley and Pura Vida brands and seek out appropriate acquisitions of other comfortable, affordable, purpose-driven, digitally-native brands, similar to our successful Pura Vida acquisition, over time.  We will also continue to expand our reach by adding adjacent product categories and geographies.”

Summary of Financial Performance for the First Quarter

Consolidated net revenues totaled $109.1 million for the current year first quarter, an increase of 57.5% over $69.3 million in the prior year first quarter.  Prior year revenues were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the current year first quarter, Vera Bradley, Inc.’s consolidated net loss totaled ($2.1) million, or ($0.06) per diluted share.  These results included $0.4 million of net after tax charges related to intangible asset amortization.  On a non-GAAP basis, Vera Bradley, Inc.’s consolidated first quarter net loss totaled ($1.7) million, or ($0.05) per diluted share. 

For the prior year first quarter, the Company posted a net loss of ($15.3) million, or ($0.66) per diluted share.  These results included $5.1 million of net after tax charges, comprised of $2.2 million of impairment charges, $1.1 million of intangible asset amortization, $0.8 million of expenses related to the re-platforming of Vera Bradley’s information technology systems (“Project Novus”), $0.8 million of charges related to the cancellation of certain purchase orders as a result of COVID-19, a $0.1 million adjustment to the Pura Vida earn-out liability, and $0.1 million in certain department store exit costs resulting from COVID-19.  In addition, the Company recorded an Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 480 measurement adjustment to increase the redeemable noncontrolling interest to its redemption value, which exceeded its fair value by $6.8 million. This excess portion of the adjustment increased the Vera Bradley, Inc. loss utilized in the numerator of the earnings per share calculation by $6.8 million, which resulted in a $0.20 negative impact to diluted earnings per share for the prior year first quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, Vera Bradley, Inc.’s consolidated prior year first quarter net loss totaled ($10.2) million, or ($0.31) per diluted share. 

Non-GAAP Numbers

The current year non-GAAP first quarter income statement numbers referenced below exclude the previously outlined intangible asset amortization.  The prior year non-GAAP first quarter income statement numbers referenced below exclude the previously outlined impairment charges, intangible asset amortization, Project Novus expenses, charges related to the cancellation of certain purchase orders resulting from COVID-19, an adjustment to the Pura Vida earn-out liability, and certain department store exit costs resulting from COVID-19. 

First Quarter Details

Current year first quarter Vera Bradley Direct segment revenues totaled $66.7 million, an 81.2% increase over $36.8 million in the prior year first quarter.  Since the Company’s stores were temporarily closed for approximately half of the prior year first quarter, a comparable store sales calculation related to the prior year is not pertinent.  The Company permanently closed 10 full-line stores and opened seven factory outlet stores in the last twelve months. 

Vera Bradley Indirect segment revenues totaled $15.3 million, a 35.9% increase over $11.2 million in the prior year first quarter.  Prior year revenues reflected a reduction in orders primarily related to COVID-19  and in the number of specialty and department store accounts.

Pura Vida segment revenues totaled $27.1 million, a 27.7% increase over $21.2 million in the prior year first quarter.  The prior year revenue numbers reflected a decline in sales to wholesale accounts, which were negatively affected by COVID-19.

First quarter consolidated gross profit totaled $59.2 million, or 54.2% of net revenues, compared to $34.2 million, or 49.3% of net revenues, in the prior year first quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, prior year first quarter gross profit totaled $35.5 million, or 51.2% of net revenues.  The year-over-year improvement was driven by a shift in channel mix and more full-price selling.

Consolidated SG&A expense totaled $60.9 million, or 55.8% of net revenues, for the quarter, compared to $59.8 million, or 86.3% of net revenues, for the prior year first quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, consolidated SG&A expense totaled $60.1 million, or 55.1% of net revenues, for the current quarter, compared to $51.6 million, or 74.5% of net revenues, for the prior year first quarter.  Prior year SG&A expenses and leverage were materially affected by COVID-19.

The Company’s first quarter consolidated operating loss totaled ($2.0) million, or (1.8%) of net revenues, compared to an operating loss of ($25.6) million, or (36.9%) of net revenues, in the prior year first quarter.  On a non-GAAP basis, the consolidated operating loss totaled ($1.2) million, or (1.1%) of net revenues, compared to ($16.1) million, or (23.2%) of net revenues, in the prior year. 

By segment:

  • Vera Bradley Direct’s first quarter operating income was $10.9 million, or 16.3% of Direct net revenues, compared to an operating loss of ($11.0) million, or (29.8%) of Direct net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, the prior year Direct operating loss totaled ($5.1) million, or (13.8%) of Direct net revenues.
  • Vera Bradley Indirect’s first quarter operating income was $4.5 million, or 29.2% of Indirect net revenues, compared to $2.8 million, or 24.5% of Indirect net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, the prior year Indirect operating income totaled $3.1 million, or 28.0% of Indirect net revenues.
  • Pura Vida’s first quarter operating income was $2.5 million, or 9.3% of Pura Vida net revenues, compared to an operating loss of ($0.8) million, or (3.8%) of Pura Vida net revenues, in the prior year.  On a non-GAAP basis, Pura Vida’s current year first quarter operating income was $3.3 million, or 12.1% of Pura Vida net revenues, compared to $1.6 million, or 7.7% of Pura Vida net revenues, for the prior year.

Balance Sheet

Net capital spending for the first quarter totaled $0.5 million.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments as of May 1, 2021 totaled $52.7 million compared to $85.1 million at the end of last year’s first quarter.  The prior year first quarter balance included $60.0 million drawn on the Company’s $75.0 million ABL credit facility at quarter end.  This has since been repaid, leaving no borrowings on the facility at quarter end.

Total quarter-end inventory was $150.3 million, compared to $132.9 million at the end of the first quarter last year.  Quarter-end inventory was higher than the prior year primarily due to additional Pura Vida inventory related to category expansions and product intensifications.  Management expects year-over-year inventory should be down by approximately 5% by the end of Fiscal 2022.

There were no common stock repurchases during the first quarter of Fiscal 2022.  At the end of the first quarter, the Company had approximately $32.9 million remaining under its $50.0 million share repurchase authorization which expires on December 11, 2021.

Looking Ahead

Wallstrom commented, “As a reminder, for Fiscal 2022, the Company’s four key growth drivers are:

  1. Driving our digital-first strategy, by evolving the digital distribution of our products and further refining and utilizing digital experiences to serve our customers. This will be supported by continuously refining our technology, developing business process and technology platforms to improve agility, data-based decision making, customer centricity, and speed-to-market.
  2. Enhancing our product innovation pipeline, collaborations, and category extensions to attract new customers and increase share of wallet with existing customers.
  3. Building our community, through marketing and by creating an impactful, positive brand movement that not only changes lives but deepens our customers’ brand loyalty.
  4. Evolving our distribution channels, by focusing on future growth opportunities and addressing the drastically changing retail environment and the consumer marketplace.”

Wallstrom concluded, “We have a long-term vision for the future of our Company and a clear path to achieve this vision.  Our team is focused, our balance sheet is solid, our brands are strong, and we are positioned for growth.  We are excited about the possibilities for Vera Bradley, Inc.” 

Forward Outlook

The retail environment continues to be uncertain, and future financial performance is difficult to predict.  However, management is providing its estimates for the full year of Fiscal 2022 (outlined below) based on current expectations.  Based on the Company’s first quarter performance, management is raising its revenue and diluted earnings per share estimates for the fiscal year from its guidance previously provided on March 9, 2021.

All forward-looking guidance numbers referenced below are non-GAAP.  The prior year gross profit, SG&A, and earnings per diluted share numbers exclude the previously disclosed net charges related to intangible asset amortization, store impairment charges, Project Novus expenses, cancellation of certain purchase orders related to the pandemic, adjustment to the Pura Vida earn-out liability, and certain department store exit costs related to the pandemic.  Current year guidance excludes any similar charges. 

For Fiscal 2022, the Company’s updated expectations are as follows: 

  • Consolidated net revenues of $555 to $575 million.  Net revenues totaled $468.3 million in Fiscal 2021.  Year-over-year Pura Vida revenues are expected to grow between 20% and 30%, and Vera Bradley revenues are expected to grow between 15% and 20%.
  • Free cash flow of between $50 and $55 million compared to $15.0 million in the prior year.
  • A consolidated gross profit percentage of 56.0% to 57.0% compared to 57.0% in Fiscal 2021.  The potential rate decline relates to an abatement in mask penetration in Fiscal 2022 coupled with incremental costs for inbound and outbound freight expense.
  • Consolidated SG&A expense of $265 to $275 million compared to $233.0 million in Fiscal 2021. The expected SG&A increase is primarily related to Vera Bradley stores being opened for the full year (stores were temporarily closed for between several weeks and several months in Fiscal 2021 due to the pandemic), non-comparable compensation and Cares Act savings in Fiscal 2021, and general variable increases associated with higher sales expectations.
  • Consolidated operating income of $46 to $53 million compared to $34.0 million in Fiscal 2021.
  • Consolidated diluted EPS of $0.85 to $1.00 based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 34.6 million and an effective tax rate of approximately 24.0%.  Diluted EPS totaled $0.63 last year. 
  • Net capital spending of approximately $8 to $10 million compared to $5.7 million in the prior year, reflecting investments associated with new factory locations and technology and logistics enhancements. 

Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

The Company's management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Further, the non-GAAP measures utilized by the Company may be unique to the Company, as they may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures presented in this earnings release, including free cash flow; gross profit; selling, general, and administrative expenses; operating loss; net loss; net loss attributable and available to Vera Bradley, Inc.; and diluted net loss per share available to Vera Bradley, Inc. common shareholders, along with the associated percentages of net revenues, are helpful to investors because they allow for a more direct comparison of the Company’s year-over-year performance and are consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures can be found in the Company’s supplemental schedules included in this earnings release.
