We delivered 39% growth in total revenues driven by a 47% increase in direct revenues, and 29% comp store sales growth on top of 29% in the year ago quarter. We believe that the significant growth in our direct and total business provides the initial data points demonstrating that the most recent evolution of our Source Book strategy was a highly profitable decision. The strong top-line growth coupled with advertising savings and operating leverage drove a 390 basis point increase in adjusted operating margins and 389% growth in adjusted net income during the quarter while we continued to invest in our infrastructure and new businesses to support our future growth.”

Mr. Friedman continued, “Based on our strong performance during the third quarter and continued confidence in the fourth quarter, we are increasing our fiscal year 2013 guidance.”

Our five Full Line Design Galleries continue to exceed our expectations.

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, pro forma EPS and adjusted diluted EPS (collectively, “non-GAAP financial measures”). We compute these measures by adjusting the applicable GAAP measures to remove the impact of certain recurring and non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in this press release may be different from the methods used by other companies.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures tables in this press release. These accompanying tables include details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. With respect to the Company’s adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS guidance for the fourth fiscal quarter and the full year of fiscal 2013, the Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP without unreasonable effort as our estimated results are preliminary and may change as we complete the quarter close process and management’s review of our financial statements.

[a] Store data represents retail stores plus outlet stores. Net revenues for outlet stores for the three months ended November 2, 2013 and October 27, 2012 were $22.4 million and $13.9 million, respectively. Net revenues for outlet stores for the nine months ended November 2, 2013 and October 27, 2012 were $57.5 million and $38.2 million, respectively.

[b] Retail data has been calculated based upon retail stores, which includes our Baby & Child stores and excludes outlet stores.

[c] Comparable store sales have been calculated based upon retail stores that were open at least fourteen full months as of the end of the reporting period and did not change square footage by more than 20% between periods. If a store is closed for seven days during a month, that month will be excluded from comparable store sales. Comparable store net revenues exclude revenues from outlet stores.

[d] Retail sales per leased selling square foot is calculated by dividing total net revenues for all retail stores, comparable and non-comparable, by the average leased selling square footage for the period.

[e] Leased selling square footage is retail space at our stores used to sell our products. Leased selling square footage excludes backrooms at retail stores used for storage, office space or similar matters. Leased selling square footage excludes exterior sales space located outside a store, such as courtyards, gardens and rooftops. Leased selling square footage includes approximately 4,500 square feet related to one owned store location.

[f] The catalogs and catalog pages circulated from period to period do not take into account different page sizes per catalog distributed. Page sizes and page counts vary for different catalog mailings and we sometimes mail different versions of a catalog at the same time. Accordingly, period to period comparisons of catalogs circulated and catalog pages circulated do not take these variations into account.

[g] Direct revenues include sales through our catalogs and websites.

[a] The adjustments for selling, general, and administrative expenses include management and pre-initial public offering board fees, certain non-cash and other one-time compensation, follow-on offering fees, lease termination costs and special committee investigation and remediation costs. See table titled “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted Net Income” for additional details.

[b] Assumes a normalized tax rate of 40% for all periods presented. See table titled “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted Net Income” for additional details.

[c] Adjusted net income is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted net income as consolidated net income (loss) less non-recurring and other items. Adjusted net income is included in this press release because management believes that adjusted net income provides meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitates a meaningful evaluation of actual results on a comparable basis with historical results. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.

[d] EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define EBITDA as consolidated net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, interest expense and provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA reflects further adjustments to EBITDA to eliminate the impact of certain items including non-cash or other items that we do not consider representative of our ongoing financial performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are included in this press release because they are key metrics used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance, and Adjusted EBITDA is used in connection with determining incentive compensation under our Management Incentive Program (“MIP”). Additionally, EBITDA is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information facilitating operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, alongside other GAAP measures such as gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), to measure profitability, as a key profitability target in our annual and other budgets, and to compare our performance against that of peer companies. Please see the table titled “Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA” for further information.

[e] On an adjusted basis for the three months ended October 27, 2012, basic and diluted shares outstanding include (1) the impact of the Reorganization, as well as (2) the 4,782,609 shares of common stock that the Company issued and sold on November 7, 2012 in its initial public offering, as if such events had been completed as of the beginning of the period and the common stock resulting therefrom was outstanding for the period.

[b] Assumes a normalized tax rate of 40% for all periods presented. See table titled “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted Net Income” for additional details.

[c] Adjusted net income is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted net income as consolidated net income (loss) less non-recurring and other items. Adjusted net income is included in this press release because management believes that adjusted net income provides meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitates a meaningful evaluation of actual results on a comparable basis with historical results. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.

[d] EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define EBITDA as consolidated net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, interest expense and provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA reflects further adjustments to EBITDA to eliminate the impact of certain items including non-cash or other items that we do not consider representative of our ongoing financial performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are included in this press release because they are key metrics used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance, and Adjusted EBITDA is used in connection with determining incentive compensation under our MIP. Additionally, EBITDA is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information facilitating operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, alongside other GAAP measures such as gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), to measure profitability, as a key profitability target in our annual and other budgets, and to compare our performance against that of peer companies. Please see the table titled “Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA” for further information.

[a] EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define EBITDA as consolidated net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, interest expense and provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA reflects further adjustments to EBITDA to eliminate the impact of certain items including non-cash or other items that we do not consider representative of our ongoing financial performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are included in this press release because they are key metrics used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance, and Adjusted EBITDA is used in connection with determining incentive compensation under our MIP.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information facilitating operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, alongside other GAAP measures such as gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), to measure profitability, as a key profitability target in our annual and other budgets, and to compare our performance against that of peer companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not GAAP measures of our financial performance or liquidity and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), as a measure of financial performance, cash flows from operating activities, as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP and they should not be construed as an implication that our future results will be unaffected by non-recurring and other items. Our measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions for other companies due to different methods of calculation.

[b] Represents fees paid in accordance with our management services agreement with Home Holdings, as well as fees and expense reimbursements paid to our Board of Directors prior to the initial public offering. All management fees were paid in full at the time of the initial public offering. Board fees and expenses subsequent to the initial public offering are not included in the above adjustments and are included in both the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA amounts.

[c] The nine months ended November 2, 2013 include non-cash compensation charges related to the performance-based vesting of certain shares granted to Mr. Friedman, as well as the one-time, fully vested option granted to Mr. Friedman upon his reappointment as Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer in July 2013. The three and nine months ended October 27, 2012 includes stock-based compensation expense incurred prior to the initial public offering. All other equity related awards granted to employees subsequent to the initial public offering are not included in the above adjustments and are included in both the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA amounts.

[d] Represents legal and other professional fees incurred in connection with our follow-on offerings in May 2013 and July 2013.

[e] Includes lease termination costs for retail stores that were closed prior to their respective lease termination dates. The amounts in the three and nine months ended October 27, 2012 relate to changes in estimates regarding liabilities for future lease payments for closed stores.
