RadioShack Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter 2013

Concept Store Initiative to be Rolled Out More Broadly in Coming Months

FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, including total net sales and operating revenues of $805 million and net loss of $112 million. The Company also announced that it has received commitments for $835 million of a new five-year debt financing. The Company continues to address significant legacy issues as it engineers a comprehensive operational turnaround driven by the Company's five pillars: reposition the brand, revamp the product assortment, reinvigorate the store experience, operational efficiency and financial flexibility.

Joseph C. Magnacca, chief executive officer, said, "We are moving forward quickly and as planned with our turnaround efforts. As we have said, we expect our work to take several quarters and during that time our results will vary quarter to quarter as we make strategic changes to improve our long-term financial performance. This quarter reflects our strategic decision to accelerate the improvements to the product assortment in our stores by removing duplicate and unproductive inventory. The lower inventory valuations for these products and projected disposal costs resulted in an expected increase to our cost of products sold this quarter."

Mr. Magnacca continued: "We have an aggressive plan to reinvigorate our store experience this fall in nearly all of our stores. This plan builds upon the sales improvement we've seen in three concept stores and two brand statement stores. By the end of the year, we will have over 100 concept and brand statement stores open. In addition, we are currently contemporizing our stores by significantly re-merchandising inventory in a more logical manner and improving presentation. Our entire store base of nearly 4,300 stores will see improvements from these changes which are being implemented in the early part of the fourth quarter."

"We are pleased with the recently obtained commitments for new financing. We are on track to achieve the Company's previously stated objective to supplement liquidity and enhance financial flexibility for the continued execution of our operational turnaround."

Note: All comparisons are versus the same period of the prior fiscal year unless otherwise noted.

"We strongly believe our new retail and consumer-centric strategy has us heading in the right direction. We've made significant progress in the third quarter and will continue to focus on execution during the all-important holiday selling season," Mr. Magnacca concluded.

THIRD QUARTER SUMMARY

  • Total net sales and operating revenues were $805 million, compared to $898 million last year. The decline was driven by an 8.4% decrease in comparable store sales due to reduced sales for each of the Company's product platforms. The Company continued to see increased sales of prepaid mobile phones in the mobility platform and in certain signature categories including portable speakers, Apple Lightning compatible cables and adaptors during the period.
  • Gross profit was $243 million, compared with $341 million last year. Gross margin was 30.1% of net sales, compared to 38.0% last year. Gross profit and gross margin performance were negatively impacted by approximately $47 million as a result of the Company's decision to accelerate the merchandise assortment changes by removing duplicate and unproductive products. Additionally, gross profit was negatively impacted by lower sales and decreased gross profit in the postpaid wireless business.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $343 million, or 42.6% of net sales, compared with $354 million last year. The decrease was driven by fewer stores in operation and lower severance costs versus last year.
  • Operating loss was $118 million, compared to a $34 million loss last year.
  • Net loss was $112 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $47 million last year.
  • The Company continues to have a strong balance sheet and total liquidity of $613 million as of September 30, 2013.

CASH, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL SPENDING

The Company ended the third quarter with total liquidity of $613 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $316.4 million and $296.2 million of available credit under the asset-based revolving credit facility that expires in January 2016.

The Company's total debt was $499 million at September 30, 2013. On August 1, 2013, the Company repaid the $214 million remaining aggregate principal balance of the 2013 Convertible Notes at maturity. The balance of the Company's debt matures between 2016 and 2019.

Capital spending totaled $14.9 million in the third quarter compared to $16.8 million last year.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company obtained financing commitments from a consortium of lenders led by GE Capital, Corporate Finance; CIT Corporate Finance; RBS Citizens, N.A.; and Salus Capital Partners. These commitments total $835 million including a new $585 million senior secured ABL credit facility and a new $250 million secured term loan. The new debt facilities will be used to refinance the Company's existing $450 million ABL credit facility, $75 million of term loans and $100 million second lien term loan. The Company expects the new financings will provide approximately $175 million of incremental liquidity. The Company expects the new debt facilities will be closed in the fourth quarter. The new financings are subject to customary closing conditions.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
