Management Commentary

'In the third quarter, we made progress re-engaging with our customers and reported results in-line with our internal expectations,' said Steve 'Woody' Woodward, president and CEO of Kirkland's Home. 'We experienced an encouraging rebound in sales through August and our Labor Day promotional event, but we believe persistent macro-economic pressures hampered our customers during the Harvest selling season, resulting in softer sales for the back half of the quarter. Although the consumer environment was volatile, we continued to execute initiatives within our control to improve our liquidity position and enhance our overall margin profile.

'Sales trends have improved thus far in the fourth quarter as customers have responded favorably to our holiday merchandise offering. We expect the environment to remain promotional for the balance of the quarter as we rationalize our inventories for 2023. We've made good initial progress reducing inventories, and we have already made a substantial reduction in our borrowings. Additionally, supply chain disruptions have eased, and inbound freight rates have declined. While we won't see a significant benefit from these factors until we've worked through our current inventory, we expect it to show in our merchandise margin in fiscal 2023 and beyond.

'Overall, we believe fiscal 2023 will be a year of stabilization for our organization. We are well on track to hit our targets of meaningfully paying down our credit line and reducing our inventories, which should provide us a healthier balance sheet as we move into next year. While the broader consumer environment is difficult to predict, we are focused on stabilizing our store comps, increasing e-commerce sales and maintaining strict cost control measures to improve the overall profitability of our platform. This will allow us to further invest in future sales growth initiatives. We believe there is immense value to still be unlocked from Kirkland's Home, and we look forward to delivering long-term value for our shareholders.'

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Net sales in the third quarter of 2022 were $131.0 million, compared to $143.6 million in the prior year quarter. Comparable same-store sales decreased 7.0%, including an 8.6% decline in e-commerce sales. The decrease was primarily driven by a decline in traffic and conversion, partially offset by an increase in average ticket.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2022 was $32.7 million, or 25.0% of net sales, compared to $49.8 million, or 34.7% of net sales in the prior year quarter. The decline was primarily a result of increased promotional activity to drive sales and reduce inventory along with higher freight costs, as well as the deleverage of fixed cost components on the lower sales base.

Operating loss in the third quarter of 2022 was $6.7 million compared to operating income of $9.0 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily a result of the aforementioned decline in gross profit and the deleverage of fixed operating costs.

EBITDA in the third quarter of 2022 was a loss of $2.6 million compared to income of $14.1 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2022 was a loss of $1.7 million compared to income of $14.8 million in the prior year quarter.

Net loss in the third quarter of 2022 was $7.3 million, or a loss of $0.58 per diluted share, compared to net income of $7.2 million, or earnings of $0.51 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net loss in the third quarter of 2022 was $4.8 million, or a loss of $0.38 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net income of $7.3 million, or income of $0.51 per diluted share in the prior year quarter.

At October 29, 2022, the Company had a cash balance of $11.2 million and total liquidity of $26.2 million, with $60.0 million of outstanding debt under its $75 million senior secured revolving credit facility. The Company repaid $30 million of its outstanding borrowings during November 2022.
