In the second quarter of 2013, Groupe Bikini Village inc.'s sales declined compared to the second quarter of 2012. Market conditions remained difficult during the quarter, despite a favourable shift in the timing of the quarter caused by the 53rd week in the Corporation's fiscal 2012.

2013 second quarter and first six-month period results

Net sales for the second quarter and the first six-month period of fiscal 2013 were $11.4 million and $19.9 million, respectively, compared to $13.6 million and $23.3 million in the corresponding periods the previous year.

Sales decreased 14.7% in the first half of 2013. Due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012, the comparable sales results (which compares sales from the same number of stores year-over-year) for the second quarter and the first half of fiscal 2013 are compared to 13- and 26-week periods ending August 4, 2012 as opposed to July 28, 2012.

Comparable sales, which compare the sales from the same number of stores year-over-year, decreased by 18.8% for the quarter and 13.4% for the six-month period, due to difficult market conditions for a swimwear retailer - in particular, unfavourable weather conditions and aggressive competition.

The Corporation reports an operating margin (EBITDA(1)) for the second quarter of $256,000 and an operating loss (EBITDA(1)) of $489,000 for the first six-month period of 2013, compared to operating margins (EBITDA(1)) of $1.5 million for the second quarter and $1.7 million for the first half of the previous year.

The decrease in the operating margin is due to lower sales volume caused by unfavourable weather conditions, and a decrease in gross margins owing to increased promotional activities.

For the quarter ended August 3, 2013, the Corporation's net loss was $133,000 (($0.07) per share, basic and diluted), as compared to net earnings of $748,000 ($0.39 per share, basic and diluted) for the same quarter in the previous year. For the six-month period ended on that date, net loss totalled $992,000 (($0.52) per share, basic and diluted), as compared to net earnings of $448,000 ($0.23 per share, basic and diluted) in the same period in 2012.
