Jun '14
Burlington Stores, Inc., a nationally recognized off-price retailer of high-quality, branded apparel at everyday low prices, announced its results for the first quarter ended May 3, 2014.
 
Highlights: 
-Comparable store sales increased 2.7%
-Net sales rose 5.9%
-Adjusted EBITDA increased 16.1%, or $12.8 million
-Adjusted EPS increased to $0.25 from $0.08 last year
-Comparable store inventory decreased 11.3%
 
First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Operating Results (for the 13 week period ended May 3, 2014 compared with the 13 week period ended May 4, 2013):
Comparable store sales increased 2.7% primarily due to improved execution of the off-price model.
 
Net sales increased 5.9%, or $63.3 million to $1,128.3 million. This increase includes the 2.7% increase in comparable store sales, as well as an increase of $40.3 million from new and non-comparable stores.
 
Gross margin expanded by 80 basis points to 38.1% from 37.3% last year, primarily due to improved execution. This more than offset an approximate 30 basis point increase in product sourcing costs that are included in selling and administrative expenses.
 
Selling and administrative expenses (“SG&A”), exclusive of advisory fees, as a percentage of net sales were 30.8% vs. 30.7% last year. As noted above, the Company experienced increased product sourcing expenses included in SG&A to process goods through its supply chain, as well as buying costs. This was offset by positive leverage from other expenses, primarily store payroll. The quarter also benefited from 15 to 20 basis points in expenses that will shift to the second quarter.
 
Adjusted EBITDA increased 16.1%, or $12.8 million, to $92.3 million. Sales growth along with gross margin expansion more than offset the increase in the Company’s increased selling and administrative expenses and led to a 70 basis point expansion in Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales.
 
Depreciation and amortization expense, exclusive of net favorable lease amortization, decreased $0.5 million to $34.6 million.
 
Interest Expense decreased $7.8 million to $26.6 million from last year, driven by interest savings related to the principal payments over the last twelve months on the Company’s Holdco Notes and Term Loan. In addition, the Company realized savings as a result of the 2013 Term Loan refinancing.
 
Adjusted tax expense was $12.5 million compared to $4.0 million last year. The adjusted effective tax rate was 40.2% vs. 39.6% last year. The increase in the tax rate is the result of certain tax credits recorded in last year’s first quarter.
 
Adjusted Net Income was $18.6 million vs. $6.1 million last year, or $0.25 per pro forma diluted share vs. $0.08 last year. Pro forma diluted shares outstanding were 75.5 million vs. 72.4 million last year.
