“The consumer responded positively to our product innovations and exclusive retail experience as evidenced by market-share gains along with favorable operational and customer-focused metrics,” said Shelly Ibach, president and CEO, Select Comfort. “However, our execution was muted by a progressively more challenged macro-economic environment, resulting in performance below expectations.”
Ibach continued, “Given the ongoing economic uncertainty, we are actively managing costs across the company, while continuing to support priorities important to long-term growth and profitability.”
Cash flows from operating activities were $90 million for the first nine months of 2013, compared with $98 million in the prior year. Capital expenditures for the first nine months of 2013 increased to $57.8 million as compared to $36.8 million in 2012, driven by increased investment in stores, technology and product innovation.
During the third quarter, the company repurchased 0.4 million shares of its common stock for a total cost of $10 million. As of the end of the quarter, cash, cash equivalents and marketable-debt securities totaled $164 million, and the company had no borrowings under its revolving credit facility.
The company is updating its outlook for full-year 2013 GAAP earnings per diluted share from between $1.30 and $1.45 to between $1.14 and $1.22. This updated guidance includes fourth-quarter earnings per diluted share of $0.18 to $0.26, compared to $0.22 in the fourth quarter of 2012. The midpoint of the fourth-quarter outlook assumes low double-digit growth in total net sales and a net increase in store count from 410 at year-end 2012 to between 435 and 445 by year-end 2013.
