Best Buy Earnings: Net Income Down 90%
[ Business]

Best Buy just released its earnings report for the second quarter, a day after announcing its new CEO. Of course, this transition is happening as Founder Richard Schulze has been trying to buy back the company. Last week, he sent a letter to the Board of Directors, affirming his offer, which was initially estimated at $8 billion (though shares have been on a downward trend). On Sunday, Best Buy announced that Schulze had declined an opportunity from the company to conduct due diligence.

Anyhow, Hubert Joly is the CEO now, coming in as the company reports a 90% profit drop thanks to less-than-stellar sales, and restructuring expenses.

“Hubert was an outstanding candidate for this position and I am confident he will be a great fit for Best Buy,” said Hatim Tyabji, chairman of the Best Buy Board. “Hubert’s range and depth of experience in transforming companies is exactly what the company needs at the moment, as is his energetic, imaginative and experienced leadership in executing strategies.”

Here’s the earnings release in its entirety:

  • U.S. big box square footage reduced by 4 percent year-over-year; Domestic revenue per square foot up 1 percent year-over-year

  • Domestic segment online revenue growth of 14 percent

MINNEAPOLIS, August 21, 2012 — Best Buy Co., Inc. (NYSE: BBY) today announced GAAP net earnings from continuing operations were $12 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the three months ended August 4, 2012 compared to net earnings from continuing operations of $150 million, or $0.39 per diluted share for the prior-year period. Excluding previously announced restructuring charges, adjusted (non-GAAP) net earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $68 million, or $0.20 per diluted share.

On August 20, 2012, the company’s Board of Directors appointed Hubert Joly, a leading global CEO with expertise in turnaround and growth across the media, technology and service sectors, as Best Buy’s President and Chief Executive Officer and a member of its Board of Directors. He is expected to begin his new role in early September.

Revenue

Three Months ended Aug. 4, 2012 Prior-Year Period
($millions) Revenue Change YOY Comp. Store Sales Comp. Store Sales
Domestic $7,803 (2.2%) (1.6%) (4.1%)
International 2,744 (4.7%) (8.2%) (2.8%)
Total $10,547 (2.8%) (3.2%) (3.8%)

The Domestic segment comparable store sales decline of 1.6 percent was driven by declines in gaming within the Entertainment revenue category, digital imaging and televisions within the Consumer Electronics revenue category and notebooks within the Computing and Mobile Phones revenue category. These declines were partially offset by comparable store sales growth in tablets and mobile phones within the Computing & Mobile Phones revenue category, the Appliances revenue category, and eReaders within the Consumer Electronics revenue category. The Domestic segment online channel revenue grew 14 percent compared to the prior-year period.

The International segment comparable store sales decline of 8.2 percent was driven by the lower growth in consumer spending in China and the continued impact from the expiration of government sponsored programs, which negatively impacted sales in Five Star. Market softness in notebooks, digital imaging and home theater in Canada also contributed to the International comparable store sales decline.

Gross Profit

Three Months ended Aug. 4, 2012
($millions) Gross Profit Change YOY % of Revenue
Domestic $1,896 (6%) 24.3%
International 668 (9%) 24.3%
Total $2,564 (7%) 24.3%

Domestic segment gross profit decreased 6 percent, reflecting a rate decline of 110 basis points compared to the prior-year period. The Domestic segment rate decline was primarily due to three factors. In mobile phones, connection growth and a mix into higher price point smart phones resulted in strong comp sales and gross profit dollar growth, although at a lower overall rate. Second, industry softness in computing resulted in increased promotional activity in the quarter to stimulate consumer demand ahead of the second half of fiscal 2013, which will include the Windows 8 launch. Finally, there was less favorable product mix within the television category.

International segment gross profit declined 9 percent, reflecting a rate decline of 130 basis points compared to the prior-year period. This rate decline was driven by Best Buy Europe and due primarily to increased mix of lower margin wholesale sales and promotional activity within a price competitive environment for mobile phones.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (“SG&A”)

Three Months ended Aug. 4, 2012
($millions) SG&A Change YOY % of Revenue
Domestic $1,722 (4%) 22.1%
International 718 0% 26.2%
Total $2,440 (2%) 23.1%

Total SG&A spending declined 2 percent compared to the prior-year period as the company executed on previously announced actions to reduce costs through changes in its corporate and field operating models, adjusting labor to match demand and from store closures. As a reminder, year-over-year SG&A comparisons for both Domestic and International segments were impacted by the absence of the Best Buy Mobile profit share payment in fiscal 2013 as a result of the purchase of Carphone Warehouse Group plc’s (“CPW”) share of the Best Buy Mobile profit share agreement in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. These intercompany profit share payments previously increased Domestic segment SG&A expense while lowering International segment SG&A and had no impact on the company’s consolidated operating income.

Operating Income

Three Months ended Aug. 4, 2012
($millions) Operating Income Change YOY % of Revenue
Domestic $83 (65%) 1.1%
International (50) n/a (1.8%)
Total $33 (87%) 0.3%
Adjusted operating income – Domestic $174 (27%) 2.2%
Adjusted operating income – International (50) n/a (1.8%)
Adjusted operating income2 $124 (52%) 1.2%

Operating income of $33 million included $91 million of restructuring charges primarily related to store closure costs. Excluding these charges, adjusted operating income for the quarter declined 52 percent to $124 million.

Please see the table titled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” attached to this release for more detail.

Share Repurchases and Dividends 
The company repurchased $122 million, or 6.3 million shares, of its common stock at an average price of $19.28 per share during the fiscal second quarter. The company has suspended its share repurchases for fiscal 2013 as it goes through the transition to a new CEO. On July 3, 2012, the company paid a quarterly dividend of $0.16 per common share outstanding, or $54 million in the aggregate.

Fiscal 2013 Financial Guidance 
Based on the normal seasonality of the business, the majority of the company’s annual earnings occur in the second half of the year. Due to lowered expectations for industry wide sales and the uncertainty associated with several key product launches expected in the second half of fiscal 2013, the company has reduced its annual earnings expectations. In addition, the company has just announced a new CEO who will start in early September. Given these factors, the company does not intend to further provide or update earnings guidance for fiscal 2013. The company will continue to provide forward looking commentary on business trends. The company continues to expect to achieve its domestic market share goals for the fiscal year and expects to generate free cash flow5 in the range of $1.25 billion to $1.5 billion for fiscal 2013.

Conference Call
Best Buy is scheduled to conduct an earnings conference call at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (8:00 a.m. Central Time) on August 21, 2012. A webcast of the call is expected to be available on its Web site at http://www.investors.bestbuy.com/ both live and after the call. A telephone replay is also available starting at approximately 12:30 pm Eastern Time (11:30 a.m. Central Time) on August 21 through August 28. The dial-in number for the replay is 800-406-7325 (domestic) or 303-590-3030 (international), and the access code is 4559359.

(1)Best Buy’s comparable store sales is comprised of revenue at stores, call centers, and websites operating for at least 14 full months as well as revenue related to other comparable sales channels. Relocated stores, as well as remodeled, expanded, and downsized stores closed more than 14 days, are excluded from the comparable store sales calculation until at least 14 full months after reopening. Acquired stores are included in the comparable store sales calculation beginning with the first full quarter following the first anniversary of the date of the acquisition. The portion of the calculation of the comparable store sales percentage change attributable to the International segment excludes the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The method of calculating comparable store sales varies across the retail industry. As a result, Best Buy’s method of calculating comparable store sales may not be the same as other retailers’ methods.

(2) The company defines adjusted operating income for the periods presented as its reported operating income for those periods calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”) adjusted to exclude the effects of restructuring charges. In addition, the company defines adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share for the periods presented as its reported net earnings and diluted earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP adjusted to exclude the effects of restructuring charges.

These non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with an understanding of the company’s operating income, net earnings, and diluted earnings per share adjusted to exclude the effect of the items described above. These non-GAAP financial measures assist investors in making a ready comparison of the company’s operating income, net earnings, and diluted earnings per share for its fiscal quarter ended August 4, 2012, against the company’s results for the respective prior-year periods and against third party estimates of the company’s diluted earnings per share for those periods that may not have included the effect of such items. Additionally, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as an internal measure to analyze trends, allocate resources, and analyze underlying operating performance. Please see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” attached to this release for more detail.

(3) Total U.S. big box retail square feet is equal to the total retail square footage of our U.S. Best Buy big box stores at fiscal quarter end. Revenue per square foot is equal to the sum of Domestic segment trailing twelve months revenue divided by the average quarterly retail square footage for all U.S. stores, over the same period. Adjusted operating income per square foot is equal to the sum of Domestic segment trailing twelve months adjusted operating income divided by the average quarterly retail square footage for all U.S. stores, over the same period.

(4) The company defines adjusted return on invested capital (“ROIC”) as adjusted net operating profit after taxes divided by average invested capital for the periods presented (including both continuing and discontinued operations). Adjusted net operating profit after taxes is defined as our operating income for the periods presented calculated in accordance with GAAP adjusted to exclude the effects of: (i) operating lease interest; (ii) investment income; (iii) net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests; (iv) income taxes; (v) all restructuring charges in costs of goods sold and operating expenses, goodwill and tradename impairments, and costs related to the purchase of CPW’s share of the Best Buy Mobile profit share agreement (“Best Buy Europe transaction costs”); and (vi) the noncontrolling interest impact of the restructuring charges, Best Buy Europe transaction costs and the purchase of CPW’s share of the Best Buy Mobile profit share agreement. Average invested capital is defined as the average of our total assets for the trailing four quarters in relation to the periods presented adjusted to: (i) exclude excess cash and cash equivalent and short-term investments; (ii) include capitalized operating lease obligations calculated using a multiple of eight times rental expenses; (iii) exclude our total liabilities, less our outstanding debt; and (iv) exclude equity of noncontrolling interests

This non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with a supplemental measure to evaluate how effectively the company is investing its capital and deploying its assets. Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to assist in allocating resources, and trends in the measure may fluctuate over time as management balances long-term initiatives with possible short-term impacts. Our ROIC calculation utilizes total operations in order to provide a measure that includes the results of and capital invested in all operations, including those businesses that are no longer continuing operations. Please see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” attached to this release for more detail.

(5) Best Buy defines free cash flow as total cash (used in) provided by operating activities less additions to property and equipment. This non-GAAP financial measure assists investors in making a ready comparison of the company’s expected free cash flow for the year ended February 2, 2013, against the company’s results for the respective prior-year periods and against management’s previously provided expectations.

(1) Best Buy’s comparable store sales is comprised of revenue at stores, call centers, and Web sites operating for at least 14 full months as well as  revenue related to other comparable sales channels. Relocated stores, as well as remodeled, expanded and downsized stores closed more than 14 days, are excluded from the comparable store sales calculation until at least 14 full months after reopening. Acquired stores are included in the comparable store sales calculation beginning with the first full quarter following the first anniversary of the date of the acquisition. The portion of the calculation of the comparable store sales percentage change attributable to the International segment excludes the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The method of calculating comparable store sales varies across the retail industry. As a result, Best Buy’s method of calculating comparable store sales may not be the same as other retailers’ methods.
(2) Excludes the impact of previously announced restructuring charges. Please see table titled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” at the back of this release.

(1) The calculations of Return on Invested Capital and Return on Assets use total operations, which includes both continuing and discontinued operations.
(2) Income statement accounts represent the activity for the 12 months ended as of each of the balance sheet dates. Balance sheet accounts represent the average account balances for the 4 quarters ended as of each of the balance sheet dates.
(3) Operating lease interest represents the add-back to operating income driven by our capitalized lease obligations and represents fifty percent of our annual rental expense which is the multiple used for the retail sector by one of the nationally recognized credit rating agencies that rates our creditworthiness, and we consider it to be an appropriate multiple for our lease portfolio.
(4) Income taxes are calculated using a blended statutory rate at the enterprise level based on statutory rates from the countries we do business in.
(5) Includes all restructuring charges in costs of goods sold and operating expenses, goodwill and tradename impairments, and the Best Buy Europe transaction costs.
(6) Cash and cash equivalents and short term investments are capped at the greater of 1% of revenue or actual amounts on hand.  The cash and cash equivalents and short term investments in excess of the cap are subtracted from our calculation of average invested capital to show their exclusion from total assets.
(7) The multiple of eight times annual rental expense in the calculation of our capitalized operating lease obligations is the multiple used for the retail sector by one of the nationally recognized credit rating agencies that rates our creditworthiness, and we consider it to be an appropriate multiple for our lease portfolio.
(8) Debt includes short-term debt, current portion of long-term debt and long-term debt and is added back to our calculation of average invested capital to show its exclusion from total liabilities.
(9) Net earnings including noncontrolling interests for the twelve months ended August 4, 2012 include the $1.3 billion purchase of CPW’s share of the Best Buy Mobile profit share agreement, a $1.2 billion non-cash impairment charge to reflect the write-off of Best Buy Europe goodwill and $499 million in restructuring charges.
