- The Company opened 19 new stores and closed 3 stores during the first half of fiscal 2012.
Allen Weinstein, Body Central's President and CEO, stated: "Our second quarter sales and earnings were in line with our revised guidance. We believe that the shortfall in our retail business was due not only to our own missteps but also to the challenging retail environment. During the second quarter, we have reduced spring and summer inventory levels, began to flow fall merchandise into our stores, continued our test and reorder process and better-aligned inventory levels with sales expectations. Our direct business has had solid gains and we continue to make progress on executing several company-wide merchandising and operating initiatives. However, based on July sales trends and limited visibility for the remainder of the quarter, we have lowered our guidance for the second half of 2012."
Balance Sheet highlights as of June 30, 2012:
Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $42.0 million at the end of the second quarter compared to $29.2 million in the second quarter of the prior year.
The Company continues to have no long-term debt.
Inventories at the end of the second quarter were $18.1 million in both the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and 2011. On an average store basis, inventory values were down 7.8% from second quarter fiscal 2011 levels.
Reported results are preliminary and remain subject to adjustment until the filing of our Form 10-Q with the SEC.
For the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company now expects comparable sales to decrease 12 to 14 percent, net revenues in the range of $68 million to $70 million and diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.02 to $0.04, based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 16.4 million.
For the full fiscal year, the Company now expects comparable sales to decrease 8 to 10 percent, net revenues will be in the range of $314 million to $317 million and diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.80 to $0.83, based on diluted weighted-average shares outstanding of 16.4 million.
