(1) Comprised of net sales of stores in operation for at least 14 full months, including remodeled and relocated stores, as well as net sales for the Company’s website.
(2) Fiscal 2014 amounts are adjusted to exclude expense from the write down of inventory for the planned exit from the contract-based mobile phone business, the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix and impairment charges. Fiscal 2013 amounts are adjusted to exclude expense from impairment charges. See the attached reconciliation of non-GAAP measures.

hhgregg, Inc. (“hhgregg” or “the Company”) today reported a net loss of $7.2 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2014, or a net loss per diluted share of $0.25, compared with net income of $9.9 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period. The three month period ended March 31, 2014 results include approximately $4.0 million ($2.4 million after-tax) of charges related to the write down of inventory for the planned exit from the contract-based mobile phone business and the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix. Net loss, as adjusted for these items, for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was $4.8 million, or $0.17 per diluted share. The decrease in adjusted net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was primarily the result of a comparable store sales decrease of 9.9%, a decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net sales, and an increase in net advertising expense and SG&A as a percentage of net sales.

Net income was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2014 compared with net income of $25.4 million, or $0.74 per diluted share for the comparable prior year period. The results for the twelve months ended March 31, 2014 include approximately $4.3 million ($2.6 million after-tax) of charges related to the write down of inventory for the planned exit from the contract-based mobile phone business, the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix and the previously announced impairment of one store. The results for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2013 include approximately a $0.5 million ($0.3 million after-tax) charge related to the impairment for one store. Net income, as adjusted for these items, for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2014 was $2.8 million or $0.09 per diluted share compared to $25.7 million, or $0.74 per diluted share for the comparable prior year period. The decrease in adjusted net income for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the prior year period was largely due to a comparable store sales decrease of 7.3% and a decrease in the gross margin rate.

Dennis May, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “As we discussed in our pre-release, we faced a number of headwinds during the quarter, which led to disappointing financial results. In addition to continued volatility in the consumer electronics business, extreme weather in January, February and the beginning of March negatively impacted traffic and operating performance in the majority of our stores, particularly those located in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions, where the weather was the most severe. Despite these challenges, the Company was able to report a comparable sales increase in its appliance category, which marked its 11th consecutive quarter of comparable store sales increases in the appliance category.

"Despite the challenges of last year, we are excited about the current fiscal year and our opportunity to transform our business through a number of strategic initiatives. During the fiscal year, we will focus on redefining our sales mix; enhancing and differentiating our customer experience; expanding our e-commerce capabilities; and launching new customer facing technologies. We believe our responsibility is to inspire and delight our customers with a truly differentiated purchase experience to help bring their homes to life. In doing so, we will improve our financial and operating results, and will solidify our brand relevance within the marketplace.”

Net sales for the three and 12 month periods ended March 31, 2014 decreased 9.9% and 5.5%, respectively, to $538.3 million and $2.3 billion, respectively, as compared to the same periods in the prior year. The decreases in net sales for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to the reduced customer traffic as a reaction to extreme weather during the quarter. The decrease in net sales for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 was attributable to a comparable store sales decrease of 7.3%.

Net sales mix and comparable store sales percentage changes by product category for the three and 12 month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 were as follows:

Three Months Ended March 31, 2014 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2013

The increase in comparable store sales within the appliance category for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was due to an increase in average selling prices, offset partially by a decline in demand due to the weather. The decrease in comparable store sales for the consumer electronics category for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was due primarily to double digit declines in units sold within the video category, largely resulting from our strategy of offering fewer entry level models and a greater mix of larger screen televisions. The decrease in comparable store sales within the computing and wireless category for the three month period was driven by decreased demand for computers and mobile phones and a decrease in the average selling prices for computers, tablets and mobile phones, partially offset by double digit increased demand for tablets. The decrease in comparable store sales within the home products category was driven by decrease in the demand of mattresses along with the transition within the furniture category. This was also the first full quarter lapping the new furniture and fitness products rolled out in the third fiscal quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Gross profit margin, expressed as gross profit as a percentage of net sales, decreased approximately 154 basis points for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 to 28.3% from 29.9% for the comparable prior year period. The three month period ended March 31, 2014 includes an approximately $1.7 million charge related to the expected write down of inventory for the planned exit from the contract-based mobile phone business. Excluding this charge the gross profit margin, as adjusted, for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was 28.7%. The decrease in gross profit margin for the period was a result of decreases in gross profit margin rates across the majority of our categories, partially offset by a favorable product sales mix shift.

SG&A, as a percentage of net sales, increased 192 basis points for the three month period ended March 31, 2014, compared with the prior year period. Excluding the $1.9 million charge for the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix, SG&A, as a percentage of net sales, for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was 22.3%. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of net sales was a result of a 69 basis point increase in occupancy costs due to the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline, a 36 basis point increase due to the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix, a 22 basis point increase of in-home delivery expense as a percentage of net sales due to a higher sales mix of deliverable product, and various other increases in SG&A expenses primarily due to the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline, which included weather related expenses.

Net advertising expense, as a percentage of net sales, increased 114 basis points during the three month period ended March 31, 2014 compared to the prior year period. The increase as a percentage of net sales was driven largely by the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline coupled with the increased spend over the prior year period.

Depreciation and amortization expense, as a percentage of net sales, increased 27 basis points for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 compared to the prior year period. The increase as a percentage of net sales was primarily due to the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline.

The Company’s effective income tax rate for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 increased to 39.3% compared to 39.0% in the comparable prior year period. The slight increase in the adjusted effective income tax rate is primarily the result of an increase in federal income tax credits recognized compared to the prior year period, which increased the effective income tax rate for the quarter, since results were a pretax loss.

Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2014 Compared to Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2013

The increase in comparable store sales within the appliance category for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the 12 month period ended March 31, 2013 was due to an increase in both unit demand and average selling prices. The decrease in comparable store sales for the consumer electronics category for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 was due primarily to double digit declines in units sold within the video category, largely resulting from our strategy of offering fewer entry level models and a greater mix of larger screen televisions. The decrease in comparable store sales within the computing and wireless category for the 12 month period was driven by decreased demand for computers and mobile phones and a decrease in the average selling prices for computers and tablets, partially offset by double digit increased demand for tablets. The increase in comparable store sales within the home products category was a result of sales of furniture and fitness equipment.

Gross profit margin, expressed as gross profit as a percentage of net sales, decreased approximately 58 basis points for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 to 28.4% from 29.0% for the comparable prior year period. The 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 includes an approximately $1.7 million charge related to the expected write down of inventory for the planned exit from the contract-based mobile phone business. Excluding this charge the gross profit margin, as adjusted for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 was 28.5%. The decrease in gross profit margin for the period was a result of decreases in gross profit margin rates across the majority of our categories, partially offset by a favorable product sales mix shift.

SG&A expense, as a percentage of net sales, increased 58 basis points for the 12 months ended March 31, 2014, compared to the prior year period. Excluding the $1.9 million charge for the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix, SG&A, as a percentage of net sales, for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2014 was 21.0%. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of net sales was a result of a 36 basis points increase in occupancy costs as a percentage of net sales due to the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline, a 37 basis points increase in-home delivery expense as a percentage of net sales due to a higher sales mix of deliverable product, and the write-off of store fixtures associated with the Company's changing product mix. This increase was partially offset by an 18 basis points decrease in bank transaction fees as a result of the increased use of the private-label credit card which carries a lower fee than other credit transactions, as well as decreases in other SG&A expenses as a result of cost control measures.

Net advertising expense, as a percentage of net sales, increased 24 basis points during the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014, compared to the prior year period. The increase as a percentage of net sales was driven largely by the deleveraging effect of the net sales decline.

Depreciation and amortization expense, as a percentage of net sales, increased 22 basis points for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 compared to the prior year period. The increase as a percentage of net sales was primarily due to the deleveraging effect of our net sales decline.

The Company’s effective income tax rate for the 12 month period ended March 31, 2014 decreased to (2.7)% from 38.8% in the comparable prior year period. The decrease in the adjusted effective income tax rate is primarily the result of a proportionate increase in federal income tax credits and the decrease in pretax income when compared to the prior year period.

Stock Repurchase Plan

During the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company repurchased 1.0 million shares of its common stock for $9.3 million at an average price of $9.01 per share. During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, the Company repurchased 3.5 million shares for $49.1 million at an average price of $14.09 per share. During the past three fiscal years, the Company has repurchased 12.7 million shares at an average price of $11.45 per share.

Additionally, effective on May 20, 2014, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new $40 million stock repurchase program. Under the program, purchases may be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. The repurchase program will expire on May 20, 2015, unless extended or shortened by the Company's Board of Directors.

Guidance

Given our multiple strategic initiatives, which are currently underway, as well as continued volatility within the consumer electronics industry, we are not providing guidance for fiscal 2015. To help investors better understand the current trends and outlook for the business, we are expecting annual comparable store sales to be between negative low single digits to flat, with the first half of the fiscal year below this expectation and the second half of the fiscal year above this expectation. In addition, we expect fiscal 2015 net income per diluted share to be higher than fiscal 2014 net income per diluted share, as adjusted. Additionally, we expect to open between 2 and 4 new stores during fiscal 2015. Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $20 million to $23 million for fiscal 2015. We will continue to update these expectations throughout the fiscal year as our strategic initiatives help to transform our business.

Andrew Giesler, Senior Vice President of Finance and Interim Chief Financial Officer of the Company, commented, “With the strength of our balance sheet and our strong liquidity position, we are well-positioned to execute on our 2015 strategic initiatives. In addition to not having any debt at the end of fiscal 2014, we spent the year investing in our infrastructure and repurchased nearly $50 million of additional shares. Our focus this year will be on maximizing the sales and profitability of existing markets as we transform our business model, with only a minimal number of new stores planned for the year. We continue to remain focused on driving sales and profit growth and maximizing long-term shareholder returns.”
