Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. reported operating results for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Net sales in the quarter increased 4.4% over the prior year to $191.3 million. The Company’s Retail division net sales increased 6.1% to $151.8 million including comparable design center growth of 4.9%. Retail division written orders recorded during the second quarter increased 1.2% over the 10.3% growth the prior year second quarter. Comparable design center written orders increased 0.1% over the 6.7% growth the prior year.

Excluding special items in both periods, net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $11.4 million or $0.39 per diluted share compared with $8.6 million or $0.30 per diluted share in the prior year period. US GAAP net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $9.8 million or $0.34 per diluted share compared with the prior year of $8.1 million or $0.28 per diluted share. A reconciliation of this GAAP to non-GAAP measure is provided in the attached table.

Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO commented, “We are pleased with our results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Despite the challenging economic / political environment and the impact of Hurricane Sandy, our adjusted earnings per share increased 30%. Hurricane Sandy negatively impacted our written orders, delivered sales, and our manufacturing margins during the quarter. Twenty eight of our Retail division design centers and eight independent retailer locations were affected. No adjustment to earnings per share was made to reflect the impact of Hurricane Sandy which we estimate may have been approximately $0.02 to $0.03 per diluted share.”

Mr. Kathwari continued, “During the quarter we expanded our international operations by entering the European and Montreal markets. We opened design centers in Brussels, Belgium and in Montreal, Canada and invested in start up costs which negatively impacted earnings by $0.02 per diluted share. We also wrote down the carrying value of two vacant manufacturing plants which resulted in a charge of $0.03 per diluted share. We expect to exit both these vacant properties during our third fiscal quarter. These start up costs and write down charges are treated as special items in the adjusted results for the quarter.

"We will discuss our many initiatives during the earnings call on Wednesday January 23rd. We have the opportunity to continue to grow our sales and earnings," Mr. Kathwari concluded.
