| Source: La-Z-Boy Incorporated

MONROE, Mich., Nov. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — La-Z-Boy Incorporated (NYSE: LZB), a global leader in residential furniture, today reported record-setting second-quarter results for the period ending October 29, 2022.

Fiscal 2023 second-quarter highlights versus prior year:

  • Consolidated sales increased 6% to $611 million, a second-quarter record
  • GAAP operating profit increased by 14%

    – Non-GAAP operating profit increased by 19%

    – GAAP operating margin increased 70 basis points to 10.1%

    – Non-GAAP operating margin increased 100 basis points to 10.0%
  • GAAP EPS increased by 20%

    – Non-GAAP EPS increased by 24%
  • Retail segment sales increased 31% to $252 million, an all-time quarterly record

    – Operating profit also all-time quarterly record

Melinda D. Whittington, President and Chief Executive Officer of La-Z-Boy Incorporated, said, “We delivered record second-quarter sales and operating performance in a challenging environment led by our company-owned Retail business. Strong supply chain execution in the period allowed us to reduce our backlog and improve service to customers and consumers as we continue to shorten lead times and move closer to delivering on our brand promise — quality custom furniture with speed to market. On the strength of that value proposition, our business remains larger than pre-pandemic levels as consumers continue to place a value on the comfort of their homes and entrust La-Z-Boy to deliver it.”

Whittington added, “As we face near-term macroeconomic and geopolitical headwinds that have slowed the pace of written sales, we are operating from a position of brand and financial strength. We remain focused on the long term, controlling what we can, and positioning the company to move through this period with ongoing operational excellence. We are pivoting quickly to respond to market dynamics, including proactively aligning our cost structure with demand, and making prudent investments to drive long-term profitable growth through Century Vision. As we tackle what lies ahead, we are confident we will navigate the environment well, build for the future, and emerge stronger while increasing market share throughout these challenging times.”

FY23 Q2 Results vs. FY22 Q2:

Consolidated Results:

  • Consolidated sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2023 increased 6% to $611 million, with the realization of pricing and surcharge actions and the positive effects of a favorable product and channel mix offsetting lower delivered unit volume
  • Consolidated GAAP operating margin was 10.1% versus 9.4%
  • Consolidated non-GAAP(1) operating margin was 10.0% versus 9.0%

     – Improved operating margin was driven primarily by a focus on manufacturing and delivering our consumer sold backlog for our company-owned Retail stores and the benefit of pricing and surcharge actions, partially offset by higher input costs and marketing investments
  • GAAP diluted EPS increased 20% to $1.07 from $0.89; non-GAAP(1) diluted EPS increased 24% to $1.05 from $0.85

Retail Segment:

  • Sales:

     – Delivered sales increased 31% to an all-time quarterly record of $252 million; delivered same-store sales increased 25%, as we improved service to consumers and moved closer to pre-pandemic lead times in the period

     – Total written sales for the company-owned La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries® stores (the company’s Retail segment) decreased 5%, reflecting softer demand across the industry driven by economic uncertainty and weaker consumer sentiment
    • Written same-store sales for the company-owned La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries® stores decreased 10%
    • Written same-store sales were 12% higher than pre-pandemic levels (FY20 Q2)
  • Operating Performance:

     – Non-GAAP(1) operating margin and operating profit increased to all-time records of 16.5%, and $42 million, respectively, versus 12.5%, and $24 million in last year’s second quarter, primarily driven by fixed-cost leverage on higher delivered sales volume

Wholesale Segment:

  • Sales:

     – Increased 2% to a second-quarter record of $446 million driven by the realization of pricing and surcharge actions coupled with favorable channel and product mix; these factors were partially offset by lower volume, primarily the result of some dealers delaying receipt of finished goods due to warehouse constraints
  • Operating Margin:

     – Non-GAAP(1) operating margin was 8.6%, 50 basis points below prior year; pricing and surcharge actions were more than offset by increased raw material costs, plant inefficiencies due to lower volume, and increased marketing spend to pre-pandemic levels

Corporate & Other:

  • Joybird delivered sales decreased 5% to $38 million, and written sales declined 27% versus the year-ago second quarter, reflecting both slowing e-commerce trends and the effects of changes in campaign execution with a key marketing partner which have since been reversed
  • Joybird posted a loss for the period, primarily reflecting lower volume, an unfavorable shift in product mix, and a lower return on advertising spend

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow as of FY23 Q2

  • Ended the quarter with $208 million in cash(2) and $19 million in short-term investments to enhance returns on cash, and no external debt
  • Year to date, generated $31 million in cash from operating activities versus $15 million in the prior-year six-month period
  • Year to date, spent $40 million on capital expenditures, primarily related to La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries® store projects, new stores, and upgrades at our manufacturing and distribution facilities
  • Year to date, returned $19 million to shareholders, including $14 million in dividends and $5 million in share repurchases; the company has approximately 7.3 million shares available for repurchase under its authorized share repurchase program

Dividend

On November 30, 2022, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.1815 per share on the common stock of the company, an increase of 10% over the prior quarter. The dividend will be paid on December 20, 2022, to shareholders of record on December 12, 2022.

Outlook

Bob Lucian, Chief Financial Officer of La-Z-Boy Incorporated, said, “As we successfully reduce our backlog to enable pre-pandemic consumer lead times, we expect the second half of our fiscal year to be impacted by continued external headwinds on consumer demand. As a result, we estimate delivered sales for the fiscal 2023 third quarter to be in a range of about $525 million to $535 million, and consolidated non-GAAP operating margin to be in a range of about 7.0% to 7.5%.”

_____

(1)Non-GAAP amounts for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 exclude:

  • a purchase accounting benefit related to acquisitions completed in prior periods totaling $0.4 million pre-tax, or $0.01 per diluted share, primarily due to the write-off of the Joybird contingent consideration liability based on forecasted future performance, with $0.4 million included in operating income and less than $0.1 million included in interest expense.

The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on certain assumptions and currently available information and are subject to various risks and uncertainties, many of which are unforeseeable and beyond our control.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), this press release also includes Non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures when assessing our ongoing performance. This press release contains references to Non-GAAP operating income, Non-GAAP operating margin, and Non-GAAP net income attributable to La-Z-Boy Incorporated per diluted share (and components thereof, including Non-GAAP income before income taxes, Non-GAAP net income attributable to La-Z-Boy Incorporated), which may exclude, as applicable, business realignment charges and purchase accounting charges. The business realignment charges include severance costs, asset impairment costs, and costs to relocate equipment and inventory related to organizational changes we undertook as a result of our response to COVID, including a reduction in the company’s work force, temporary closure of certain manufacturing facilities and subsequent gains resulting from the sale of related assets. The purchase accounting charges may include the amortization of intangible assets, incremental expense upon the sale of inventory acquired at fair value, amortization of employee retention agreements, fair value adjustments of future cash payments recorded as interest expense, and adjustments to the fair value of contingent consideration. These Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for La-Z-Boy Incorporated’s results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Reconciliations of such Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the accompanying tables.

In addition, this press release references the Non-GAAP financial measure of “Non-GAAP operating margin” for a future period. Non-GAAP operating margin may exclude items such as pre-tax purchase accounting charges and pre-tax business realignment charges. These and other not presently determinable items could have a material impact on the determination of operating margin on a GAAP basis and due to the probable variability and limited visibility of excluded items, therefore, we have not provided a reconciliation of Non-GAAP operating margin for future periods in this press release.

Management believes that presenting certain Non-GAAP financial measures will help investors understand the long-term profitability trends of our business and compare our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers. Management excludes purchase accounting charges because the amount and timing of such charges are significantly impacted by the timing, size, number and nature of the acquisitions consummated and the success with which we operate the businesses acquired. While the company has a history of acquisition activity, it does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, and the impact of purchase accounting charges is unique to each acquisition and can vary significantly from acquisition to acquisition. Similarly, business realignment charges are dependent on the timing, size, number and nature of the operations being moved or closed, and the charges may not be incurred on a predictable cycle. Management believes that exclusion of these items facilitates more consistent comparisons of the company’s operating results over time. Where applicable, the accompanying “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” tables present the excluded items net of tax calculated using the effective tax rate from operations for the period in which the adjustment is presented, except for the non-tax deductible goodwill impairment charge and the adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration which reflects the associated GAAP tax impact in the period presented.
