GameStop Reports Second Quarter Results And Strong Progress Toward Strategic Objectives

Global E-commerce Sales Increase 800%
SG&A Improves by $133.7 million
Generates Cash Flow From Operations of $192.8 million And Free Cash Flow of $181.9 million

GRAPEVINE, Texas, Sept. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME), today reported results for the second quarter ended August 1, 2020 that reflected strong positive cash flow, a strengthened balance sheet and progress toward its strategic objectives despite the negative impact from temporary store closures related to COVID-19 and operating in the last few months of the current generation console cycle. 

George Sherman, GameStop’s chief executive officer, said, “The second quarter saw strong progress toward our strategic initiatives, fueling an 800% increase in global E-commerce sales, a $133.7 million reduction in SG&A and a significant improvement in our balance sheet with $735.1 million in cash at quarter-end and a 50% reduction in inventory, as compared to the second quarter last year.  These achievements combined drove $181.9 million in free cash flow for the quarter. I am extremely proud of our team, and their dedication to our mission, our strategy and safely serving our customers despite operating in an unprecedented environment.”

“We believe the actions we are taking to optimize the core operations of our business by increasing efficiencies and creating a frictionless digital ecosystem to serve our customers, wherever and whenever they choose to shop, are enabling us to navigate the COVID-19 environment while positioning us well for the launch of the next generation of consoles.” 

Mr. Sherman continued, “While the ongoing pandemic continues to create a somewhat uncertain environment in the short term, we are very pleased by the consumer response at GameStop to the few recent video game product introductions and we believe we are ready, with expanded service and payment options, to handle the expected surge in demand and participate in a very significant way in the console launches later this year.”

Second Quarter Sales Results:

  • Net sales were $942.0 million, down 26.7% from the fiscal 2019 second quarter reflecting:
    • The impact of operating during the last few months of the seven-year-long current generation console cycle and the subsequent limited availability of hardware and accessories;
    • A 13% reduction in total store operating days due to temporary store closures driven by the global COVID-19 pandemic; and
    • A 10% reduction in the store base, as part of the Company’s de-densification strategy, partially offset by almost  40% of closed store sales recaptured through the transfer to neighboring locations and online, leading to improved cash flow.
  • Comparable store sales declined 12.7%, adjusting for fewer store operating days due to store closures as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Global E-commerce sales rose 800% and are included in comparable store sales.

Progress Toward Strategy:
Optimized the core business by improving efficiency and effectiveness across the organization:

  • Delivered a $133.7 million reduction in SG&A in the second quarter and a $200.9 million reduction in the first six months of fiscal 2020 from the comparable periods of fiscal 2019 through continued expense reduction initiatives;
  • Transformed physical store presence through the ongoing de-densification of the GameStop store base, thereby reducing costs while transferring approximately 40% of closed store sales to neighboring locations and online;
  • Improved on strong liquidity position, generating $192.8 million in Cash Flow From Operations and $181.9 million in Free Cash Flow, as defined by cash generated from operations less purchase of property and equipment;
  • Strengthened the balance sheet with:
    • $735.1 million of cash at quarter end and reduced borrowings under its asset based revolving credit facility by $100 million to $35 million; and
    • A 50% reduction in inventory and 30.4% reduction in accounts payable as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • Completed exchange offer and consent solicitation for $216.4 million of unsecured notes, reducing the amount due to mature in March 2021 to approximately $198 million.  The newly issued notes provide additional financial flexibility by replacing and extending the maturity of the existing notes to 2023;
  • Completed sale leaseback transactions for three office buildings, adding $43.2 million in liquidity.  Subsequent to the end of the second fiscal quarter, the Company executed two additional sale leaseback transactions related to office buildings, adding another approximately $43.7 million in liquidity; and
  • Finalized the wind down of operations in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Built a frictionless digital ecosystem to reach GameStop customers:

  • Delivered an 800% increase in global E-commerce sales during the quarter to represent over 20% of total net sales;
  • Improved fulfillment capabilities leading to the recapture of approximately 73% of sales through stores open for limited curbside pickup during the quarter, despite being closed to customer traffic due to COVID-19 for 13% of the store operating days in the period; and
  • Improved fulfillment capabilities drove a 90% fulfillment rate within 24 hours of customers placing an order. 

Additional Second Quarter Highlights:
(See reconciliation table of GAAP results to non-GAAP adjusted results in Schedule II of this press release.)

  • Gross margin declined 420 bps from the prior year second quarter, driven by the increased mix of hardware sales, which carry a lower gross margin.
  • SG&A was $348.2 million, down $133.7 million or 27.7% compared to $481.9 million in the prior year second quarter, and includes approximately $2.7 million in incremental costs associated with safety materials and equipment to ensure the safety of customers and associates.
  • Adjusted SG&A was $336.9 million, a reduction of $108.0 million, or 24.3% from the prior year second quarter.
  • Operating loss of ($85.6) million compared to operating loss of ($446.7) million in the prior year second quarter.
  • Adjusted operating loss of ($84.7) million compared to adjusted operating loss of ($45.8) million in the prior year second quarter.
  • Net loss of ($111.3) million, or ($1.71) per diluted share, including approximately $2.7 million in incremental costs associated with safety materials and equipment to ensure the safety of our customers and associates, compared to net loss of ($415.3) million, or loss per share of ($4.15) per diluted share in the prior year second quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of ($62.4) million compared to ($19.9) million in the prior year second quarter.
  • Adjusted net loss from continuing operations of ($91.2) million or ($1.40) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net loss from continuing operations of ($32.0) million, or ($0.32) per diluted share in the prior year second quarter.

Capital Allocation and Liquidity Update
As of August 1, 2020, the Company had $735.1 million in total cash and reduced its outstanding borrowings under the asset based revolving credit facility to $35 million

As of August 1, 2020, the Company had $256.3 million of short-term debt and $215.9 million of long-term debt on the balance sheet. As previously announced on July 2, 2020, the Company completed the exchange offer and consent solicitation for $216.4 million of unsecured notes, reducing the amount due to mature in March 2021 to approximately $198 million.  The newly issued notes provide additional financial flexibility by replacing and extending the maturity of the existing notes to 2023. 

Store Operations Update
During the second quarter, the Company continued the phased reopening of its stores across all operating countries where restrictions related to the global pandemic were lifted, and according to the mandates provided by federal, state and local officials, including the implementation of strict sanitization processes and social distancing measures. As a result, at the end of August 2020, the Company had substantially all of its worldwide locations open to limited customer access or curbside delivery. 

2020 Outlook (52 weeks ending January 30, 2021)
The Company continues to focus on efforts that position it to manage through this unprecedented time, such as maintaining its balance sheet strength, prioritizing the allocation of resources to areas of the business that produce strong cash flow, reducing expenses across the business, developing and expanding its digital strategy, and intensifying inventory discipline. Due to the uncertainty around the duration and evolving impact of COVID-19, the Company is continuing to suspend guidance.

Non-GAAP Measures and Other Metrics
As a supplement to our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), GameStop may use certain non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted SG&A, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow.  We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in evaluating our core operating performance. Adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses (“Adjusted SG&A”), adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted earnings (loss) per share exclude the effect of items such as transformation costs, asset impairments, store closure costs, severance, non-operating tax charges, as well as divestiture costs. Results reported as constant currency exclude the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates by converting our local currency financial results using the prior period exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to our current period reported results. Our definition and calculation of non-GAAP financial measures may differ from that of other companies.  Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative or substitute for, the Company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Certain of the items that may be excluded or included in non-GAAP financial measures may be significant items that could impact the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows and should therefore be considered in assessing the Company’s actual and future financial condition and performance.

The diluted weighted-average shares outstanding used to calculated adjusted earnings per share may differ from GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding. Under GAAP, basic and diluted weighted-average shares outstanding are the same in periods where there is a net loss. The reconciliations below are from continuing operations only.

Non-GAAP results

The following table reconciles the Company's cash flows provided by operating activities as presented in its unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and prepared in accordance with GAAP to its free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow. Free cash flow is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes, however, that free cash flow, which measures our ability to generate additional cash from our business operations, is an important financial measure for use by investors in evaluating the company’s financial performance.

Non-GAAP Measures and Other Metrics
Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental financial measure of the Company’s performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We believe that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before income taxes, plus interest expense, net and depreciation and amortization, excluding stock-based compensation, transformation costs, business divestitures, asset impairments, severance and other non-cash charges. Net income (loss) is the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Furthermore, non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool because they exclude some but not all items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Some of these limitations include:

  • certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

We compensate for the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA as an analytical tool by reviewing the comparable GAAP financial measure, understanding the differences between the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures and incorporating these data points into our decision-making process. Adjusted EBITDA is provided in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the Company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA may be defined and determined differently by other companies in our industry, our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.
