Farooq Kathwari, Ethan Allen’s Chairman, President and CEO commented, “While we have continued to have strong earnings and cash generation, we believe we have a major opportunity to further increase our profitability by increasing our sales and leveraging our more efficient vertically integrated structure. We continue to strengthen our talent, marketing, retail network, products, manufacturing, logistics and technology, while also maintaining our focus on good governance and social responsibility.” 

Mr. Kathwari continued, “During October, we launched a major initiative — the Ethan Allen Member Program. Those who enroll receive special members-only pricing, complimentary interior design service, free shipping and white glove in-home delivery, and in our U.S. design centers, access to special financing options. The membership program will benefit our clients, enable our team of about 1,500 North American interior designers and our vertically integrated operations to operate more efficiently with the opportunity to improve our operating margins. About 75% of our products are made in our North American workshops. The membership program was launched in October with a strong advertising campaign utilizing direct mail, television and digital mediums. We plan to continue with enhanced marketing as we move through our fiscal 2020 year under our new ‘We Make the American Home’ campaign designed to further amplify our design heritage and quintessential American brand identity.”

Mr. Kathwari further commented, “Today we also start our annual convention with interior designers and retail management from all over the world. They will get a first look at our upcoming introductions for spring 2020 including an upholstery brand aimed at younger customers and a modern take on farmhouse styles.”

“While our wholesale orders from China declined 38% mainly due to the imposition of tariffs by China, total wholesale orders excluding our China business increased 1%. Including the impact of decreased China orders, our total wholesale orders decreased 1.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared with the same quarter last fiscal year. As expected, our contract business, driven by the GSA contract, had another strong quarter. We believe our new format of reporting wholesale orders booked through all channels provides a more holistic view of our business than our previous reporting approach focusing on the change in only the Company’s retail division written orders,” Mr. Kathwari concluded.

FISCAL 2020 FIRST QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS

Consolidated

Net sales were $173.9 million compared with $187.8 million for the same prior year period, a decrease of 7.4%. Net sales during the just completed first quarter were negatively impacted by a $4.7 million decrease in consolidated international net sales from our combined retail and wholesale segments, which was primarily related to lower sales to China and in Canada due to the economic uncertainty surrounding international trade disputes and a challenging global economy. Net sales to China were 49.4% lower in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared with the same quarter last fiscal year.

Gross profit was $93.8 million compared with $101.5 million for the prior year period due to a decline in profit within the Company’s wholesale segment partially offset by slight growth within the retail segment. Wholesale gross profit in fiscal 2020 was negatively impacted by lower sales volume, partially offset by a change in product mix. Consolidated gross margin for the quarter was 53.9% compared with 54.0% for the prior year period. Retail sales, as a percentage of total consolidated net sales, was 78.9% compared with 77.3% in the prior year first quarter, which favorably impacted consolidated gross margin. Adjusted gross margin, which excludes restructuring activities from the previously announced plans to further optimize the Company’s manufacturing and logistics operations, was 56.3%. Restructuring charges totaling $4.1 million, which included the write off of inventory, unfavorable manufacturing variances and incremental freight and relocation costs, negatively impacted the Company’s fiscal 2020 gross margin by 240 basis points.

Operating expenses were $75.2 million or 43.2% of net sales compared with $89.7 million or 47.7% of net sales in the same prior year period. The decrease was primarily due to a gain of $11.5 million from the sale of the Passaic property during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The gain on the sale was reported in the wholesale segment within restructuring charges. In addition to the gain on the sale, operating expenses were lower in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 due to lower retail depreciation expense and lower wholesale distribution costs from a lower volume of shipments.

Operating income was $18.6 million or 10.7% of net sales compared with operating income of $11.8 million or 6.3% of net sales in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income was $12.2 million or 3.5% higher than last year due to lower depreciation expense and a decrease in wholesale distribution costs partially offset by lower net sales.

Income tax expense was $4.6 million in the current year first quarter compared with $2.9 million a year ago. The effective rate in the current first quarter was 24.4% compared with 24.9% last year.

Diluted EPS was $0.53 per diluted share compared with $0.33 per diluted share in the prior year comparable period. The gain on the sale of the Passaic property partially offset with other fiscal 2020 restructuring activities and corporate actions increased diluted EPS by $0.18. Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.35 in the current year first quarter represents 6.1% of growth over the prior year first quarter and was driven by improved gross margin and cost containment efforts.

Wholesale Segment

Net sales of $101.3 million compared with $118.1 million in the prior year quarter, a decrease of 14.2%. The lower net sales were primarily due to a decline in sales to China and the Company’s North American retail network. Partially offsetting these declines was growth in contract sales, which grew $4.5 million year over year.

Wholesale orders booked, which represents orders booked through all of the Company’s channels, was down 1.5% compared with the same quarter last fiscal year. Wholesale orders from China declined 37.6% from a year ago mainly due to the imposition of tariffs by China and the economic uncertainty surrounding the international trade disputes. Excluding orders from China, total wholesale orders increased 0.7%, which was driven by continued growth in the Company’s contract business, including the GSA contract.

Operating income increased 18.3% to $16.9 million compared with $14.3 million for the prior year period due to the gain on the sale of the Passaic property partially offset by restructuring actions. Adjusted wholesale operating income decreased 27.7% largely due to lower sales volume.

Retail Segment

Net sales were $137.3 million compared with $145.2 million in the prior year comparable period, a decrease of 5.5%. There was a 5.3% decrease in net sales in the U.S., while net sales from the Canadian design centers decreased 10.8% due to softer order trends as consumers have been cautious with discretionary spending. There were 145 Company operated design centers at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2020, two less than the 147 in the prior year period.

Operating income was $1.6 million, or 1.1% of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared with a loss of $1.6 million for the prior year period. Growth in operating income was driven by an improvement in gross margin in the current quarter partially offset by lower sales. The main factor contributing to the overall margin increase stems from improved retail price and promotion optimization.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Total cash and cash equivalents of $45.9 million increased $25.1 million from June 30, 2019. Cash provided by operations totaled $23.4 million and $11.6 million in proceeds from the sale of the Company’s Passaic, New Jersey property were partially offset by the payment of $5.1 million in cash dividends and capital expenditures of $3.4 million.

Inventories of $151.4 million decreased $11.0 million from the balance of $162.4 million at June 30, 2019. During the first quarter of fiscal 2020 the Company recorded a non-cash charge of $3.1 million related to the write-down and disposal of certain slow moving and discontinued inventory items. The non-cash inventory write-down was recorded in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income within the wholesale segment in the line item Cost of Sales.

Capital expenditures were $3.4 million, an increase of $0.6 million compared to the $2.8 million spent a year ago. In fiscal 2020, approximately 66% of the Company’s capital expenditures related to retail design center improvements with the remaining 34% for new machinery and computer equipment.

Cash Dividends paid totaled $5.1 million, consistent with the year ago first quarter.

OPTIMIZATION OF MANUFACTURING AND LOGISTICS

During the first quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company continued with its previously announced optimization project as it converted the Old Fort, North Carolina facility into a distribution center and expanded its existing Maiden, North Carolina manufacturing campus while finalizing severance and other exit costs associated with its case goods operations. In connection with the foregoing first quarter fiscal 2020 initiatives, the Company recorded pre-tax restructuring and other exit charges totaling $1.7 million, consisting of $1.1 million in manufacturing variances associated with the closing of the Passaic property and the repurposing of the Old Fort case goods manufacturing operations, $0.4 million in employee severance and other payroll and benefit costs, and $0.2 million of other exit costs. The manufacturing overhead variances of $1.1 million were recorded within Cost of Sales with the remaining $0.6 million recorded within the line item Restructuring and impairment charges (gains) in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

As part of the optimization plans, the Company completed the sale of its Passaic property in September 2019 to an independent third party. As a result of the sale, the Company’s wholesale segment recognized a pre-tax gain of $11.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, which was recorded within the line item Restructuring and impairment charges (gains) in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

DIVIDEND INCREASE

On July 25, 2019, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.21 per share, which was payable to shareholders of record as of October 10, 2019, and was paid on Friday, October 25, 2019. The $0.21 per share dividend, a 10.5% increase, reflects the continued strengthening of the Company’s balance sheet.

LEASES

In February 2016, the FASB issued accounting standards update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), an update related to accounting for leases. The main difference between ASU 2016-02 and previous U.S. GAAP is the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees on the balance sheet for those leases classified as operating leases under previous U.S. GAAP. As a result, the Company recognized a liability representing its lease payments and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term on the balance sheet.

The Company adopted ASU 2016-02 as of July 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective method and have not restated comparative periods. Upon adoption the Company recognized operating lease assets of $129.7 million and operating lease liabilities of $149.7 million on its consolidated balance sheet. In addition, $20.0 million of deferred rent and various lease incentives, which were reflected as other long-term liabilities as of June 30, 2019, were reclassified as a component of the right-of-use assets upon adoption. The Company also recognized a cumulative adjustment as of July 1, 2019, which decreased opening retained earnings by $1.6 million due to the impairment of certain right-of-use assets. The adoption of the new standard did not have a material impact on the consolidated statements of operations or cash flows for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release is intended to supplement, rather than to supersede, the Company's consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). In this press release the Company has included financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures including adjusted gross profit and margin, adjusted operating income and margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted EPS (collectively “non-GAAP financial measures”). The Company computes these non-GAAP financial measures by adjusting the comparable GAAP measure to remove the impact of certain charges and gains and the related tax effect of these adjustments. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measure reported in accordance with GAAP is provided at the end of this press release.

Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP Results to Adjusted Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., or U.S. GAAP, the Company uses non-GAAP financial measures including adjusted gross profit and margin, adjusted operating income, adjusted retail operating income and margin, adjusted wholesale operating income and margin, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. The reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP are shown in tables below.

These non-GAAP measures are derived from the consolidated financial statements but are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures provide a meaningful comparison of its results to others in its industry and prior year results. Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, its financial performance measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Moreover, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all the items associated with the operations of the business as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Other companies may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures differently than the Company does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

Despite the limitations of these non-GAAP financial measures, the Company believes these adjusted financial measures and the information they provide are useful in viewing its performance using the same tools that management uses to assess progress in achieving its goals. Adjusted measures may also facilitate comparisons to our historical performance.

The following tables below show a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
