Body Central Corp. Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

August 14, 2014

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Body Central Corp. (OTC - Pink: BODY) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2014.

Background

Pursuant to a June 27, 2014 securities purchase agreement, an $18.0 million investment was injected into the Company in connection with the issuance of secured subordinated convertible notes and new series of preferred stock. The financing provided us with much-needed operating liquidity and management is now pursuing a program of expense cuts. The Company's board of directors has been reconstituted through the addition of new appointees with expertise in sectors including retail operations, supply chain, e-commerce, finance, investment management and public accounting. Additionally, a new CFO with expertise in inventory management has joined our team. We are focused on building long-term value per share. In the near-term, we are putting our efforts towards driving free cash flow as soon as possible and creating business processes that sustain and maximize this free cash flow. Long-term, we intend to expand our efforts toward investing any excess capital to maximize stockholder value.

Highlights for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2014:

• Net revenues for the second quarter of 2014 decreased 24.8% to $56.5 million, compared to $75.1 million for the second quarter of 2013.• Store sales decreased 22.2% to $52.0 million primarily due to a comparable-store sales decrease of 22.6%.• Direct sales decreased by 46.3% to $4.4 million from $8.3 million in the same quarter last year.• The loss from operations was $21.6 million, as compared to a loss from operations of $15.2 million for the second quarter in 2013. Included in the loss from operations for the second quarter of 2014 were non-cash charges of $1.9 million to long-lived fixed assets and a $3.7 million impairment charge of our trade name. For the second quarter of 2013 we had a non-cash charge of $10.4 million against the Company's goodwill. Excluding these non-cash charges in either period, our loss from operations was $16.0 million for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2014, and the loss from operations was $4.8 million for the thirteen weeks ended June 29, 2013.• The net loss was $21.0 million, or $(1.28) per diluted share based on 16.4 million weighted average shares outstanding. Included in the net loss for the second quarter of 2014 are the $5.6 million in non-cash charges as noted above for charges to long-lived assets and our trade name. Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 was $12.8 million, or $(0.78) per diluted share based on 16.3 million weighted average shares outstanding. The second quarter of 2013 net loss included a $10.4 million non-cash charge to goodwill as noted above. Excluding these non-cash charges in either period, the net loss for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2014 would have been $16.2 million, or $(0.99) per diluted share based on 16.4 million weighted average shares outstanding, and the net loss for the thirteen weeks ended June 29, 2013 would have been $2.4 million, or $(0.15) per diluted share based on 16.3 million weighted average shares outstanding.• The Company closed 7 stores during the second quarter and operated 275 stores as of June 28, 2014.

Balance Sheet highlights as of June 28, 2014:

• Cash and cash equivalents were $4.4 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014 compared to $31.5 million at the end of the second quarter in the prior year. The Company had $7.7 million outstanding on its revolving credit facility as of June 28, 2014.• Average per store inventory at cost decreased 32.6% and average per store inventory units decreased 18.0% from one year ago.

As of August 13, 2014, the Company had $14.2 million in cash, $12.0 million outstanding drawn against eligible account receivables and inventory of its revolving credit facility borrowing base collateral, and $0.9 million available against its borrowing base collateral.
