Conn’s, Inc. Reports Record Net Income

Conn’s, Inc. (NASDAQ:CONN), a specialty retailer of furniture, mattresses, home appliances, consumer electronics and provider of consumer credit, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2014.

First-quarter fiscal 2015 significant items include (on a year-over-year basis unless noted):

  • Consolidated revenues increased 33.6% to $335.4 million;
  • Same store sales grew 15.6%, on top of a 16.5% increase in same store sales reported a year ago;
  • Furniture and mattress sales increased 64.7% and accounted for approximately one-third of total product revenue in first-quarter fiscal 2015;
  • Entered Denver market with opening of two Conn’s HomePlus® stores;
  • Retail gross margin improved 110 basis points to 41.4%;
  • Adjusted retail segment operating income rose 44.8% to $39.5 million;
  • Credit segment operating income declined $0.4 million to $11.3 million;
  • The percentage of the customer portfolio balance 60+ days delinquent improved sequentially to 8.0% as of April 30;
  • Credit segment provision for bad debts on an annualized basis was 8.2% of the average outstanding portfolio balance;
  • Adjusted diluted earnings grew 31.1%, to $0.80 per share, from $0.61 per share; and
  • Full-year fiscal 2015 guidance of $3.40 to $3.70 adjusted earnings per diluted share was reaffirmed.

“First quarter results met our expectations with solid performance in both the retail and credit operations,” stated Theodore M. Wright, Conn’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Same store sales rose 16% over the prior year with same store sales growth of 3% in the electronics category. This growth continued into May with same store sales increasing 13%. With the expansion of our product offerings and new store openings, furniture and mattress was our leading product category in the quarter. This favorable shift in product mix contributed to retail gross margin of 41.4% for the period.

“We opened two Conn’s HomePlus stores in Colorado in late April, two stores in Tennessee in May and plan to open seven more stores by the end of July. For the full fiscal year, we continue to execute our plan to open 17 to 20 stores and expand our geographic footprint. All of our new stores are performing at or above our expectations. We incurred substantial costs related to these stores and the related distribution network during the quarter, which we expect to become better levered over the balance of the year.

“Execution in our collections operation improved during the quarter and delinquency declined as anticipated. We expect to see further execution improvement in the coming quarters.”

Retail Segment First-Quarter Results (on a year-over-year basis unless otherwise noted)

Total retail revenues increased $68.3 million, or 32.6% to $278.1 million for the quarter ended April 30, 2014. The revenue growth reflects the impact of the net addition of nine stores over the past 12 months as well as a 15.6% increase in same store sales. The company’s decision to discontinue sales of lower-margin lawn equipment in January reduced the reported year-over-year sales increase. Sales of lawn equipment were $4.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. After excluding lawn equipment, same store sales were up approximately 19%. With new store openings and the remodeling and relocation of existing stores, almost three-quarters of the stores were operating in the Conn’s HomePlus® format at May 31, 2014.

The following table presents net sales by category and changes in net sales for the current and prior-year quarter:

Three Months Ended April 30, Same store
2014   % of Total   2013   % of Total Change % Change   % change

Total net sales $ 277,629 100.0 % $ 209,448 100.0 % $ 68,181   32.6







The following provides a summary of items influencing Conn’s major product category performance during the quarter, compared to the prior-year period:

  • Furniture unit sales expanded 52% and the average selling price was up 15%;
  • Mattress unit volume grew 19% and the average selling price increased 14%;
  • Home appliance unit volume increased 21%. Laundry sales were up 35%, refrigeration sales rose 32% and cooking sales grew 23%;
  • Television sales rose 11% in total and declined 2% on a same store basis. Home theater and portable audio sales each grew 42%; and
  • Computer sales increased 60% and tablet sales declined 15%.

Retail gross margin increased 110 basis points to 41.4% for the quarter ended April 30, 2014. Certain of the company’s vendors provide higher promotional assistance in the first quarter of each fiscal year, which benefited retail gross margin by approximately 130 basis points in the current quarter and 150 basis points in the prior-year period. The year-over-year increase in retail gross margin is attributable to the significant growth in higher-margin furniture and mattress sales. Furniture and mattress sales contributed 31.8% of the total product sales and 42.4% of the total product gross profit in the current period. For the first quarter of fiscal 2015, home appliance accounted for 27.3% of total product gross profit, consumer electronics generated 21.6% of total product gross profit and home office contributed 5.6% of total product gross profit.

In connection with the planned opening of nine stores in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the company incurred approximately $3.8 million in unlevered operating expenses. Approximately 55% of these costs are included in selling, general and administrative expenses, with the balance in cost of goods sold. This compares with approximately $0.6 million of similar expenses in the prior-year period.

Credit Segment First-Quarter Results (on a year-over-year basis unless otherwise noted)

Credit revenues increased 38.9%, to $57.4 million. The revenue growth was attributable to the increase in the average receivable portfolio balance outstanding. The customer portfolio balance equaled $1.1 billion at April 30, 2014, rising 42.7%, or $330.4 million from a year ago. The portfolio interest and fee income yield was 17.6% for the first quarter, down 40 basis points from the prior year, primarily as a result of increased provision for uncollectible interest and lower fee income. The portfolio yield was also influenced by an increase in short-term, no-interest customer receivables.

Provision for bad debts increased $8.4 million to $22.2 million for the first quarter. The annualized provision rate increased 90 basis points, to 8.2%, due to a 32.7% increase in loan originations and higher delinquency rates, as compared to the prior year. The percentage of the customer portfolio balance greater than 60-days delinquent was 8.0% as of April 30 and 7.8% as of May 31, which compares to 8.8% as of January 31, 2014.

Additional information on the credit portfolio and its performance may be found in the table included within this press release and in Conn’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended April 30, 2014, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

First-Quarter Net Income Results

For the quarter ended April 30, 2014, Conn’s reported net income of $0.77 per diluted share, which includes a pretax charge of $1.8 million associated with facility closures and lease terminations, compared to the prior-year quarter when the company reported net income of $0.61 per diluted share.

Capital and Liquidity

As of April 30, 2014, the company had $516.8 million of borrowings outstanding under its asset-based loan facility. The company had $183.8 million of immediately available borrowing capacity, with an additional $178.0 million that could become available upon increases in eligible inventory and customer receivable balances under the borrowing base.

Outlook and Guidance

Conn’s reaffirmed its fiscal year 2015 earnings guidance of $3.40 to $3.70 per diluted share on an adjusted basis. The company expects to generate diluted earnings per share of between $3.37 and $3.67 for the 12 months ended January 31, 2015, which includes charges of approximately $0.03 per diluted share associated with facility closures and lease terminations during the first quarter of fiscal 2015. The following assumptions were considered in developing the full-year guidance:

  • Same stores sales up 5% to 10%;
  • New store openings of 17 to 20;
  • Ten store closures;
  • Discontinued sales of lawn equipment;
  • Retail gross margin between 39.0% and 40.0%;
  • An increase in the credit portfolio balance;
  • Credit portfolio interest and fee yield of approximately 18.0%;
  • Credit segment provision for bad debts of between 8.0% to 10.0% of the average portfolio balance outstanding based on the same store sales and new store opening expectations presented above;
  • Selling, general and administrative expense of between 28.0% and 29.0% of total revenues; and
  • Diluted shares outstanding of approximately 37.4 million.

Basis for presentation of non-GAAP disclosures:

To supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company also provides the following information: adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share; adjusted retail segment operating income and adjusted operating margin; and full-year fiscal 2015 earnings guidance on an adjusted basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures but should be considered in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, and are intended to provide additional insight into the Company’s operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company’s business. The Company’s management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to financial statement readers because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics the Company uses in its financial and operational decision making and (2) they are used by some of its institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the Company’s operating results.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology.
