STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lovesac Company (Nasdaq:LOVE) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020, which ended on August 4, 2019.
Shawn Nelson, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We reported a strong second quarter with revenue growth of close to 45%, as the entire team is executing our strategies to expand the Lovesac brand and deliver on our near and longer term goals. We are further strengthening our multi-channel model with the addition of productive new showrooms, the expansion of our pop up shop business at Costco and the announcement of a brand new shop in shop pilot with Macy’s that is expected to launch late in the third quarter, as well as increasingly effective advertising and marketing strategies.”
Mr. Nelson continued, “Given our first half performance and our plans for the remainder of the year, we are reiterating our full year outlook for 40% to 45% revenue growth and positive Adjusted EBITDA. Importantly, this outlook includes the net impact from announced Lists 1 through 4 tariffs to date that our teams continue to successfully mitigate through various means, with only minor price increases. We have reduced our manufacturing in China from 75% of our total manufacturing at the beginning of the year to 44% as of this month. We believe this puts us on a path to being completely out of China, if necessary, well before the end of next year. I would like to thank all of our teams as well as our vendor partners for their hard work and collaboration that have enabled this outcome.”

Based in Stamford, Connecticut, The Lovesac Company is a direct-to-consumer specialty furniture brand with approximately 80 retail showrooms supporting its ecommerce delivery model. Lovesac’s name comes from its original Durafoam filled beanbags called Sacs. The Company derives a majority of its current sales from its proprietary platform called Sactionals, a washable, changeable, reconfigurable, and FedEx-shippable solution for large upholstered seating. Founder and CEO, Shawn Nelson’s, “Designed for Life” philosophy emphasizes sustainable products that are built to last a lifetime and designed to evolve with the customer’s needs, providing long-term utility and ultimately reducing the amount of furniture discarded into landfills.
This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”): adjusted net loss, adjusted diluted loss per share and Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted net loss excludes the effect of one-time costs related to the Company’s IPO in June 2018 and fees associated with fundraising and reorganizing activities. Adjusted diluted loss per share is defined as adjusted net loss divided by a pro forma share count which assumes the IPO took place before the relevant time period. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, sponsor fees, deferred rent, equity-based compensation, write-off of property and equipment, one-time IPO-related expenses, and fees associated with fundraising and reorganizing activities. The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures under “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures” in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company’s business and facilitate a more meaningful comparison of its diluted income per share and actual results on a period-over-period basis. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate these items differently than the Company does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.
