Select Comfort Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2013 Results
  • Generates Fourth-quarter Net Sales of $231 Million, a 5% Year-over-year increase
  • Reports Fourth-quarter EPS of $0.12 and Full-year EPS of $1.08 on a GAAP basis
  • Provides 2014 outlook

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2014-- Select Comfort Corporation (NASDAQ:SCSS) today reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2013 results for the period ended Dec. 28, 2013.

Fourth-quarter Financial Summary

  • Net sales increased 5% to $231 million, compared to $221 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Company-controlled comparable sales were flat year-over-year.
  • Operating income was $9.7 million, compared with $19.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.12, compared with $0.22 in the prior year.
  • During the quarter, the company opened 28 new stores and closed 11.

Full-year 2013 Financial Summary

  • Net sales increased 3% to $960 million, up from $935 million in 2012.
  • Company-controlled comparable sales declined 4% year-over-year.
  • Earnings per diluted share on a GAAP basis were $1.08, compared to $1.37 per diluted share in 2012. Adjusted earnings per diluted share (excluding CEO transition benefit/costs) were $1.07 compared with $1.43 for the prior year.
  • The company opened 71 new stores and closed 41 in 2013, ending the year at 440 stores, a 7% increase versus year-end 2012.

"While we made important progress on strengthening our strategic differentiators and delivered five percent year-over-year sales growth, our financial performance in the fourth quarter did not meet our expectations," said Shelly Ibach, president and CEO, Select Comfort. "As we look to 2014, we are cautiously optimistic about the combined impact of what we believe are fundamental product innovations and the most-tested, new advertising campaign in our history."

Cash from operating activities was $88 million for full-year 2013 compared to $101 million in 2012. Capital expenditures for full-year 2013 increased to $77 million as compared to $52 million in 2012, driven by increased investment in stores and information systems. During the fourth quarter, the company returned $10 million to shareholders through the repurchase of 0.5 million shares of its common stock, bringing full-year share repurchases to $40 million, or 1.8 million shares. As of the end of the quarter, cash, cash equivalents and marketable-debt securities totaled $145 million, and the company had no borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

Financial Outlook
The company expects full-year 2014 earnings per diluted share to approximate full-year 2013 adjusted earnings per diluted share of $1.07. This outlook assumes mid- to high-single-digit total revenue growth and the addition of 20 to 30 net new stores during the year.

The company currently anticipates that 2014 capital expenditures will be $70-$80 million, including investments in new, relocated and remodeled stores, as well as information technology.

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA)
(in thousands)

We define earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") as net income plus: income tax expense, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and asset impairments. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful indicator of our financial performance and our ability to generate cash from operating activities. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled definitions used by other companies. The table below reconciles Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, to the comparable GAAP financial measure:

(1) In February 2012, we announced that William R. McLaughlin, then President and CEO, would retire from the Company effective June 1, 2012. In recognition of Mr. McLaughlin's contributions, the Compensation Committee approved the modification of Mr. McLaughlin's currently unvested stock awards, including performance-based stock awards. As a result of these modifications, we recorded incremental non-cash compensation of $5.6 million in fiscal year 2012. The performance-based stock awards are subject to applicable adjustments through 2014 based on actual performance versus performance targets. During the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013, we recorded a non-cash compensation benefit of $0.5 million resulting from performance-based stock award adjustments.

(2) Reflects effective income tax rate, before discrete adjustments, of 34.2% for 2013 and 34.7% for 2012.
