Bassett Q1'FY14 net sales decline

Apr '14
Bassett Furniture Industries, Inc. announced its results of operations for its fiscal quarter ended March 1, 2014.
 
Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Highlights
Consolidated sales were $75.6 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $79.8 million for the first quarter of 2013. Normalizing for the extra week in the first quarter of 2013, consolidated sales increased 2.0% in 2014 as compared to 2013.
 
Four new Bassett Home Furnishings (BHF) stores were opened (Ft. Worth, TX, Annapolis, MD, Westport, CT and Burlington, MA).
 
Operating income for the quarter was $1.1 million or 1.4% of sales, a decrease of $1.3 million from the prior year quarter. The current year quarter included an additional $0.9 million in new store related costs as compared to the prior year quarter.
 
Normalizing for the extra week in 2013, wholesale sales increased 2.0% compared to the prior year quarter.
 
Normalized Company-owned store delivered sales increased 1.6% compared to the prior year quarter, including a 0.6% increase from the 52 comparable stores.
 
On a consolidated basis, the Company reported net sales for the first quarter of 2014 of $75.6 million as compared to $79.8 million for the first quarter of 2013. Because of the Company's fiscal calendar, the prior year quarter consisted of 14 weeks compared to 13 weeks for the current year quarter. 
 
On an average weekly basis, consolidated net sales increased 2.0%. Operating income decreased to $1.1 million from $2.4 million driven primarily by higher new store related costs (both pre- and post-opening), as the Company opened four new stores during the quarter. 
 
Also contributing to the decrease were lower margins in the wholesale operation and reduced leverage of fixed costs due to one less week of sales in the current quarter. 
 
Other income (loss), net improved from a loss of $0.7 million in 2013 to income of $0.3 million in 2014 due primarily to the recognition of $0.7 million of death benefits from life insurance policies covering a former executive and a $0.1 million gain resulting from the recovery of a portion of the Company's investment in a hedge fund which was fully impaired in 2012. 
 
The Company recorded net income of $0.8 million or $0.08 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $1.0 million or $0.09 per share for 2013.
