Smart & Final Stores, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

 

COMMERCE, Calif. (May 3, 2017) – Smart & Final Stores, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE:SFS), the value-oriented food and everyday staples retailer, today reported financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended March 26, 2017.

 

First Quarter Highlights:

 

·                  Net sales increase of 6.4% to $967.0 million

 

·                  Comparable store sales decrease of 2.5%, including impacts of deflation, cannibalization and adverse weather

 

·                  Net loss of $4.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share

 

·                  Adjusted net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share

 

·                  Adjusted EBITDA of $24.4 million

 

“The operating environment in the first quarter remained challenging, with lingering effects of deflation and cannibalization weighing on our sales performance and results of operations,” said David Hirz, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our ability to deliver first quarter net sales growth of 6% year-over-year, despite market conditions and severe weather in our market areas, highlights the effectiveness of our differentiated model, as a one-stop shop for our household and business customers, and our unique product assortment of private label, club sizes and high quality perishables.   In the second half of 2017, we expect deflationary and cannibalization pressures to alleviate, and with severe weather behind us, anticipate positive comparable store sales growth and improved financial comparisons.”

 

Mr. Hirz added, “As we look beyond the current environment, we remain excited about the opportunity to grow and strengthen our two well-positioned store banners. During the first quarter, we opened two new Smart & Final Extra! stores and one new Cash & Carry store, and we are on track to open a total of 19 new stores in 2017.  Our pipeline of 2017 new stores provides us the opportunity to strengthen our presence in existing market areas, as well as introduce our brands to household and business customers in new communities.”

 

In order to aid understanding of the Company’s business performance, it has presented results in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and has also presented adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per share, adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures that are explained and reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in the tables included in this release. Where applicable, the numbers below are first presented on a GAAP basis and then on an adjusted basis.

 

Fiscal First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

 

Net sales were $967.0 million in the 12-week quarter ended March 26, 2017, representing a 6.4% increase as compared to $908.5 million for the same period of 2016. Net sales growth was driven by the net sales contribution of new stores, partially offset by a 2.5% decrease in comparable store sales. The decrease in comparable store sales was attributable to a 0.4% decrease in comparable transaction count, including the effect of cannibalization from new stores, and a 2.1% decrease in comparable average transaction size, including the impact of deflation in key product categories in both store banners.
