PACIFIC SUNWEAR OF CALIFORNIA, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

1. NATURE OF BUSINESS

Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. (together with its wholly-owned subsidiaries, the “Company” or “PacSun”) is a leading specialty retailer rooted in the action sports, fashion and music influences of the California lifestyle. The Company sells a combination of branded and proprietary casual apparel, accessories and footwear designed to appeal to teens and young adults. It operates a nationwide, primarily mall-based chain of retail stores under the names “Pacific Sunwear” and “PacSun.” In addition, the Company operates an e-commerce website at www.pacsun.com which sells PacSun merchandise online, provides content and community for its target customers and provides information about the Company. The Company, a California corporation, was incorporated in August 1982. As of October 27, 2012, the Company leased and operated 722 stores in each of the 50 states and Puerto Rico.

2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are unaudited and have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted.

These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 28, 2012 (“fiscal 2011”) filed with the SEC. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (Pacific Sunwear Stores Corp., a California corporation (“PacSun Stores”) and Miraloma Borrower Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Miraloma”)). All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments consisting only of normal recurring entries necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The preparation of Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as well as the reported revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. The results of operations for the Company’s fiscal quarter ended October 27, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending February 2, 2013 (“fiscal 2012”).

The results of continuing operations for all periods presented in these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements exclude the financial impact of discontinued operations. See Note 12, “Discontinued Operations” for further discussion related to discontinued operations presentation.

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Information regarding significant accounting policies is contained in Note 1, “Nature of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies,” of the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2011. Presented below in the following notes is supplemental information that should be read in conjunction with “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” included in that Report.

Income Taxes

The Company calculates its interim income tax provision in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 270, “Interim Reporting” (“ASC 270”) and ASC Topic 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”). At the end of each interim period, the Company estimates the annual effective tax rate and applies that rate to its ordinary quarterly earnings. The tax expense or benefit related to significant, unusual, or extraordinary items is recognized in the interim period in which those items occur. In addition, the effect of changes in enacted tax laws, rates or tax status is recognized in the interim period in which the change occurs. The computation of the annual estimated effective tax rate at each interim period requires certain estimates and significant judgment including the expected operating income for the year, permanent and temporary differences as a result of differences between amounts measured and recognized in accordance with tax laws and financial accounting standards, and the likelihood of recovering deferred tax assets generated in the current fiscal year. The accounting estimates used to compute the provision for income taxes may change as new events occur, additional information is obtained or the tax environment changes.

4. IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

The Company assesses long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets (or asset group) may not be recoverable. Based on management’s review of the historical operating performance, including sales trends, gross margin rates, current cash flows from operations and the projected outlook for each of the Company’s stores, the Company determined that certain stores would not be able to generate sufficient cash flows over the remaining term of the related leases to recover the Company’s investment in the respective stores. As a result, the Company recorded the following non-cash impairment charges related to its retail stores within the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Operations, to write-down the carrying value of its long-lived store assets to their estimated fair values.

The long-lived assets disclosed above that were written down to their respective fair values consisted primarily of leasehold improvements, furniture, fixtures and equipment. The Company recognized impairment charges of $0.5 million and $7.0 million, respectively, during the quarters ended October 27, 2012 and October 29, 2011 and $3.2 million and $12.8 million, respectively, during the first three quarters ended October 27, 2012 and October 29, 2011. The decrease in the number of stores tested for impairment year-over-year was primarily related to the Company’s recent closure of certain underperforming stores. Based on historical operating performance and the projected outlook for these stores, the Company believes that the remaining asset value of approximately $6 million, as of October 27, 2012, is recoverable. Additionally, the Company wrote off approximately $0.9 million of excess store fixtures in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012.

6. DEBT

Credit Facility

On December 7, 2011, the Company entered into a new five-year, $100 million revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A (the “New Credit Facility”), which replaced the Company’s previous revolving credit facility with JPMorgan Chase (the “Former Credit Facility”). Borrowings under the New Credit Facility bear interest at a floating rate which, at the Company’s option, may be determined by reference to a LIBOR Rate or a Base Rate (as defined in the New Credit Facility, 4.0% as of October 27, 2012). Extensions of credit under the New Credit Facility are limited to a borrowing base consisting of specified percentages of eligible categories of assets. The New Credit Facility is available for direct borrowings and allows for the issuance of letters of credit, and up to $12.5 million is available for swing-line loans. The New Credit Facility is secured by liens and security interests with (a) a first priority security interest in the current and certain related assets of the Company including cash, cash equivalents, deposit accounts, securities accounts, credit card receivables and inventory, and (b) a second priority security interest in all assets and properties of the Company that are not secured by a first lien and security interest. The New Credit Facility also contains covenants that, subject to specified exceptions, restrict the Company’s ability to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, incur liens, liquidate or dissolve, sell, transfer, lease or dispose of assets, or make loans, investments or guarantees. The New Credit Facility is scheduled to mature on December 7, 2016. Based on current forecasts, the Company believes that cash flows from operating activities, working capital, borrowing availability under the New Credit Facility, and cash on hand resulting from the closing of the Term Loan and the two mortgage transactions discussed below will be sufficient to meet its operating and capital expenditure needs for the next twelve months. However, if the Company were to experience same-store sales declines similar to those that occurred in fiscal 2010 and 2009, it may be required to access most, if not all, of the New Credit Facility and would potentially require other sources of financing to fund its operations, which sources might not be available. At October 27, 2012, the Company had no direct borrowings and $26 million in letters of credit outstanding under the New Credit Facility. The remaining availability under the New Credit Facility at October 27, 2012 was $48 million. The Company is not subject to any financial covenant restrictions under the New Credit Facility.

Term Loan

On December 7, 2011, the Company obtained the Term Loan funded by an affiliate of Golden Gate Capital. The Term Loan bears interest at a rate of 5.5% per annum to be paid in cash, due and payable quarterly in arrears, and 7.5% per annum, due and payable in kind (“PIK”) annually in arrears, with such PIK interest then due and payable being added to the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan at the end of each fiscal year, and with adjustments to the cash and PIK portion of the interest rate in accordance with the Term Loan agreement, following principal prepayments. Annual cash interest for fiscal 2012 is expected to be approximately $3 million. The Term Loan is guaranteed by each of the Company’s subsidiaries and will be guaranteed by any future domestic subsidiaries of the Company. The Term Loan is secured by liens and security interests with (a) a first priority security interest in all long-term assets of the Company and PacSun Stores and all other assets not subject to a first lien and security interest pursuant to the New Credit Facility, (b) a first priority pledge of the equity interests of Miraloma and (c) a second priority security interest in all assets of the Company and PacSun Stores subject to a first lien and security interest pursuant to the New Credit Facility. The Term Loan also contains covenants substantially identical to those in the New Credit Facility. The principal balance and any unpaid interest related to the Term Loan is due on December 7, 2016. The Company is not subject to any financial covenant restrictions under the Term Loan.

Mortgage Debt

On August 20, 2010, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Miraloma and PacSun Stores, executed two promissory notes pursuant to which borrowings in an aggregate amount of $29.8 million from American National Insurance Company (“Anico”) were incurred. The note executed by Miraloma (the “Miraloma Note”) is in the amount of $16.8 million and bears interest at the rate of 6.50% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments under the Miraloma Note commenced on October 1, 2010, and are $113,435. The principal and interest payments are based on a 25-year amortization schedule. The remaining principal balance of the Miraloma Note, and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon (estimated to be $14.4 million), will be due in full on September 1, 2017. The Miraloma Note is secured by a deed of trust on the building and land comprising the Company’s principal executive offices in Anaheim, California and is non-recourse to the Company. The Miraloma Note does not contain any financial covenants. In connection with this transaction, the Company transferred the building and related land securing the Miraloma Note to Miraloma and entered into a lease for the building and land with Miraloma. Miraloma paid a prepayment fee to Anico equal to 1% of the principal amount of the Miraloma Note on the closing date of the transaction. As a result, Miraloma may prepay the Miraloma Note, in whole, but not in part, at any time without penalty upon 30 days prior written notice to Anico.

Table of Contents

The note executed by PacSun Stores (the “PacSun Stores Note”) is in the amount of $13.0 million and bears interest at the rate of 6.50% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments under the PacSun Stores Note commenced on October 1, 2010, and are $87,777. The principal and interest payments are based on a 25-year amortization schedule. The remaining principal balance of the PacSun Stores Note, and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon (estimated to be $11.2 million), will be due in full on September 1, 2017. The PacSun Stores Note is secured by a mortgage on the Company’s leasehold interest in the building and land comprising the Company’s distribution center in Olathe, Kansas, and is unconditionally guaranteed by the Company. The PacSun Stores Note does not contain any financial covenants. PacSun Stores paid a prepayment fee to Anico equal to 1% of the principal amount of the PacSun Stores Note on the closing date of the transaction. As a result, PacSun Stores may prepay the PacSun Stores Note, in whole, but not in part, at any time without penalty upon 30 days prior written notice to Anico.

The Company recorded interest expense of $3.2 million and $1.2 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $10.0 million and $2.3 million during the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively.

7. INCOME TAXES

The provisions codified within ASC 740 require companies to assess whether valuation allowances should be established against their deferred tax assets based on consideration of all available evidence using a “more likely than not” standard. In accordance with ASC 740, a full valuation allowance was established during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 and continues to be maintained on all federal and the majority of state deferred tax assets. Remaining net state deferred tax assets of approximately $5 million were not reserved as the Company concluded it is more likely than not that these net deferred tax assets would be utilized before expiration. The Company has discontinued recognizing federal and certain state income tax benefits until it is determined that it is more likely than not that the Company will generate sufficient taxable income to realize the deferred income tax assets.

The Company continues to monitor whether an ownership change has occurred under Internal Revenue Code Section 382 (“Section 382”). Based on available information at the reporting date, the Company believes it has not experienced an ownership change through the quarter ended October 27, 2012. The determination of whether or not an ownership change under Section 382 has occurred requires the Company to evaluate certain acquisitions and dispositions of ownership interests over a rolling three-year period. As a result, future acquisitions and dispositions could result in an ownership change of the Company under Section 382. If an ownership change were to occur, the Company’s ability to utilize federal net operating loss carryforwards could be significantly limited.

8. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Common Stock

In connection with certain lease modifications during fiscal 2011, the Company issued 900,000 shares of its common stock to one of its landlords. The fair value on the date of issuance was approximately $1.6 million, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis as a component of occupancy costs over the respective rent reduction period.

Preferred Stock

In conjunction with the Term Loan, the Company issued the Series B Preferred to an affiliate of Golden Gate Capital which, based on the initial conversion ratio, gives that affiliate the right to purchase up to 13.5 million shares of the Company’s common stock. The Series B Preferred shares have an exercise price initially equal to $1.75 per share of the Company’s underlying common stock. The initial holder of the Series B Preferred is entitled to customary registration rights with respect to the underlying common stock. See Note 9, “Fair Value Measurements – Recurring Fair Value Measurements” for further discussion on the accounting treatment of the Series B Preferred.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company maintains two stock-based incentive plans: (1) the 2005 Performance Incentive Plan (the “Performance Plan”) and (2) the amended and restated Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”). The types of awards that may be granted under the Performance Plan include stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, and other forms of awards granted or denominated in the Company’s common stock or units of the Company’s common stock. Persons eligible to receive awards under the Performance Plan include officers or employees of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, directors of the Company and certain consultants and advisors to the Company or any of its subsidiaries. The vesting of awards under the Performance Plan is determined at the date of grant. Each award expires on a date determined at the date of grant; however, the maximum term of options and stock appreciation rights under the Performance Plan is ten years after the grant date of the award. As of October 27, 2012, the maximum number of shares of the Company’s common stock that was available for award grants under the Performance Plan was 2.3 million shares. Any shares subject to awards under prior stock plans that are canceled, forfeited or otherwise terminate without having vested or been exercised, as applicable, will become available for other award grants under the Performance Plan. The Performance Plan will terminate on March 22, 2015, unless terminated earlier by the Company’s Board of Directors.

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation expense in accordance with ASC Topic 718, “Stock Compensation” (“ASC 718”). The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to estimate the grant date fair value of its stock options. Forfeitures are estimated at the date of grant based on historical rates and reduce the compensation expense to be recognized during the vesting period. The expected term of options granted is derived primarily from historical data on employee exercises adjusted for expected changes to option terms, if any. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the date of grant. Expected volatility is based primarily on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock. The Company records stock-based compensation expense using the straight-line method over the vesting period, which is generally three to four years. The Company’s stock-based awards generally begin vesting one year after the grant date and, for stock options, expire in seven to ten years or three months after termination of employment with the Company. The Company’s stock-based compensation expense resulted from awards of stock options, restricted stock, and stock appreciation rights, as well as from shares issued under the ESPP.

Stock Options

The fair value of the Company’s stock-based compensation activity was determined using the following weighted- average assumptions:

 

     For the Three Quarters Ended
     October 27, 2012   October 29, 2011

Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”)

The Company’s ESPP provides a method for Company employees to voluntarily purchase Company common stock at a 10% discount from fair market value as of the beginning or the end of each six-month purchasing period, whichever is lower. The ESPP covers substantially all employees who have three months of service with the Company, excluding senior executives.

 

11


Table of Contents

The ESPP is intended to constitute an “employee stock purchase plan” within the meaning of Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

During the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, the Company issued 114,897 and 95,798 shares at an average price of $1.58 and $2.35, respectively, under the ESPP.

9. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Company measures its financial assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis and measures its nonfinancial assets and liabilities at fair value as required or permitted.

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received pursuant to the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. In order to determine the fair value of certain assets and liabilities, the Company applies the three-level hierarchy of valuation techniques based upon whether the inputs reflect assumptions other market participants would use based upon market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs) or reflect the Company’s assumptions of market participant valuation (unobservable inputs) and requires the use of observable inputs if such data is available without undue cost and effort. The hierarchy is as follows:

 

   

Level 1 — quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.

 

   

Level 2 — inputs other than Level 1 inputs, which are observable either directly or indirectly.

 

   

Level 3 — unobservable inputs.

Level 3 assumptions are, by their nature, inherently uncertain and the effect of changes in estimates may result in a significantly lower or higher fair value measurement.

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

Derivative Liability

The Series B Preferred shares are required to be measured at fair value each reporting period. The fair value of the Series B Preferred shares was estimated using an option pricing model that requires Level 3 inputs, which are highly subjective and determined using the following significant assumptions:

Money Market Funds

As of October 27, 2012, and January 28, 2012, the Company had approximately $10.0 million and $19.8 million held in money market funds, respectively. The fair value of money market funds is determined based on Level 1 inputs which consist of quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets. Money market funds are included in cash and cash equivalents in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.

Non-Recurring Fair Value Measurements

On a non-recurring basis, using a discounted cash flow model, the Company measures certain of its long-lived assets at fair value based on Level 3 inputs including, but not limited to, moderate comparable store sales and margin growth, projected operating costs based primarily on historical trends, and an estimated weighted-average cost of capital rate. During the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011 the Company recorded $4.1 million and $12.8 million of impairment charges, respectively, in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Operations.

10. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Litigation

Charles Pfeiffer, individually and on behalf of other aggrieved employees vs. Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. and Pacific Sunwear Stores Corp., Superior Court of California, County of Riverside, Case No. 1100527. On January 13, 2011, the plaintiff in this matter filed a lawsuit against the Company under California’s private attorney general act alleging violations of California’s wage and hour, overtime, meal break and rest break rules and regulations, among other things. The complaint seeks an unspecified amount of damages and penalties. The Company has filed an answer denying all allegations regarding the plaintiff’s claims and asserting various defenses. The Company is currently in the discovery phase of this case. As the ultimate outcome of this matter is uncertain no amounts have been accrued by the Company as of the date of this report. Depending on the actual outcome of this case, provisions could be recorded in the future which may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s operating results.

Tamara Beeney, individually and on behalf of other members of the general public similarly situated vs. Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. and Pacific Sunwear Stores Corporation, Superior Court of California, County of Orange, Case No. 30-2011-00459346-CU-OE-CXC. On March 18, 2011, the plaintiff in this matter filed a putative class action lawsuit against the Company alleging violations of California’s wage and hour, overtime, meal break and rest break rules and regulations, among other things. The complaint seeks class certification, the appointment of the plaintiff as class representative, and an unspecified amount of damages and penalties. The Company has filed an answer denying all allegations regarding the plaintiff’s claims and asserting various defenses. The Company is currently in the discovery phase of this case. As the ultimate outcome of this matter is uncertain, no amounts have been accrued by the Company as of the date of this report. Depending on the actual outcome of this case, provisions could be recorded in the future which may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s operating results.

The Company is also involved from time to time in other litigation incidental to its business. The Company believes that the outcome of current litigation will not likely have a material adverse effect on its results of operations or financial condition and, from time to time, the Company may make provisions for probable litigation losses. Depending on the actual outcome of pending litigation, charges in excess of any provisions could be recorded in the future, which may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s operating results.

Indemnities, Commitments and Guarantees

During the normal course of business, the Company agreed to certain indemnities, commitments and guarantees under which it may be required to make payments in relation to certain transactions. These indemnities, commitments and guarantees include those given to various lessors in connection with facility leases for certain claims arising from such facility or lease and indemnities to directors and officers of the Company to the maximum extent permitted under the laws of the State of California. The duration of these indemnities, commitments and guarantees varies, and in certain cases, is indefinite. The majority of these indemnities, commitments and guarantees do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential future payments the Company could be obligated to make. The Company has not recorded any liability for these indemnities, commitments and guarantees in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets other than as disclosed below.

Letters of Credit

The Company has issued guarantees in the form of commercial letters of credit, of which there were approximately $26 million outstanding at October 27, 2012, as security for merchandise shipments from overseas. All in-transit merchandise covered by letters of credit is accrued for in accounts payable.

11. SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company operates exclusively in the retail apparel industry. The Company designs, produces and distributes clothing and related products catering to teens and young adults through its primarily mall-based PacSun retail stores. The Company has identified three operating segments: PacSun stores, PacSun Outlet stores and pacsun.com. The three operating segments have been aggregated into one reportable segment based on the similar nature of products sold, production, merchandising and distribution processes involved, target customers, and economic characteristics among the three operating segments.

12. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

In accordance with ASC Topic 205, “Presentation of Financial Statements- Discontinued Operations” (“ASC 205”), the Company has presented the results of operations of its closed stores as discontinued operations for all periods presented. The Company closed 6 and 1 underperforming stores in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, and during the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, the Company closed 14 and 32 underperforming stores, respectively. If the cash flow of the closed store was determined not to be significant to ongoing operations, and the cash inflows of nearby stores were not expected to increase significantly, the results of operations of the closed store are included in discontinued operations. The following table details the operating results included in discontinued operations for the periods presented:

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

The following management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations (“MD&A”) should be read in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included elsewhere in this Report.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Report contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and we intend that such forward-looking statements be subject to the safe harbors created thereby. In Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 28, 2012 (our “Annual Report”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 to our Annual Report, filed April 10, 2012 (our Annual Report, as amended, our “2011 Annual Report”), we provide cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements contained herein. Any statements that express, or involve discussions as to, expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions, future events or performance (often, but not always, identifiable by the use of words or phrases such as “will result,” “expects to,” “will continue,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “intends,” “estimated,” “projects” and “outlook”) are not historical facts and may be forward-looking and, accordingly, such statements involve estimates, assumptions and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements in this Report include, but are not limited to, the following categories of expectations about:

 

   

the sufficiency of operating cash flows, working capital and available credit to meet our operating and capital expenditure requirements;

 

   

our capital expenditure plans for fiscal 2012; and

 

   

potential recording of non-cash impairment charges for underperforming stores in future quarters.

All forward-looking statements included in this Report are based on information available to us as of the date hereof, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. See Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our 2011 Annual Report, which are hereby incorporated by reference in this Report for a discussion of these risks and uncertainties. We assume no obligation to update or revise any such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur after such statements are made.

Executive Overview

We consider the following items to be key indicators in evaluating our performance:

Comparable (or “same-store”) sales

Stores are deemed comparable stores on the first day of the fiscal month following the one-year anniversary of their opening or expansion/relocation. We consider same-store sales to be an important indicator of the Company’s current performance. Same-store sales results are important in achieving operating leverage of certain expenses such as store payroll, store occupancy, depreciation, general and administrative expenses and other costs that are somewhat fixed. Positive same-store sales results usually generate greater operating leverage of expenses while negative same-store sales results generally have a negative impact on operating leverage. Same-store sales results also have a direct impact on our net sales, cash and working capital.

Net merchandise margin

We analyze the components of net merchandise margins, specifically initial markups, discounts and markdowns as a percentage of net sales. Any inability to obtain acceptable levels of initial markups or any significant increase in our use of discounts or markdowns could have an adverse impact on our gross margin results and results of operations.

Operating margin

We view operating margin as a key indicator of our success. The key drivers of operating margins are comparable store net sales, net merchandise margins, and our ability to control operating expenses. For a discussion of the changes in the components comprising operating margins, see “Results of Operations” in this section.

Store sales trends

We evaluate store sales trends in assessing the operational performance of our stores. Important store sales trends include average net sales per store, average net sales per square foot and number of transactions.

Cash flow and liquidity (working capital)

We evaluate cash flow from operations, liquidity and working capital to determine our short-term operational financing needs. Based on current forecasts, we believe that cash flows from operating activities, working capital, borrowing availability under the New Credit Facility, and cash on hand resulting from the closing of the Term Loan will be sufficient to meet our operating and capital expenditure needs for the next twelve months. However, if we were to experience same-store sales declines similar to those which occurred in fiscal 2010 and 2009, we may have to access most, if not all, of the New Credit Facility and potentially require other sources of financing to fund our operations, which sources might not be available. For a discussion of the changes in our operating cash flows and working capital, see “Liquidity and Capital Resources” in this section.

Critical Accounting Policies

There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates from the information provided in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” included in our 2011 Annual Report.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2012, comparable store net sales of Men’s was flat and Women’s increased 2%, respectively. For Men’s, increased sales of tops and non-apparel were offset by decreases in sales of bottoms, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The increase in Women’s was primarily driven by higher sales of bottoms and non-apparel, partially offset by decreases in sales of tops, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Apparel represented 87% of total Women’s sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 versus 86% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, while Men’s apparel represented 86% of total Men’s sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 versus 87% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Total non-apparel sales represented a combined 14% of total sales for the third quarter of both fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011. In addition, same-store sales transactions decreased from 4.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 to 4.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Gross Margin

Gross margin, after buying, distribution and occupancy costs, was $60.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 versus $55.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. As a percentage of net sales, gross margin was 26.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to 24.4% for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The components of this 2.2% increase in gross margin as a percentage of net sales were as follows:

Attributable to

  1.8      

Increase in merchandise margin to 49.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from 47.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, primarily due to an increase in initial markups and a decrease in promotions, partially offset by a one-time store closure charge of 80 basis points for markdown allowances.

  0.1      

Leveraging of occupancy costs as a result of the 1% same-store sales increase for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 discussed above and a reduction in rent expense related to negotiations with our landlords.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) was $62.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $68.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. These expenses decreased to 27.2% as a percentage of net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from 30.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The components of this 3.0% decrease in SG&A as a percentage of net sales were as follows:

Attributable to

  0.7     

Increase in payroll and payroll-related expenses as a percentage of net sales. Payroll expense increased $2 million to $39 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from $37 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 due primarily to an increase in employee benefits.

  (0.8  

Decrease in depreciation expense to $8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from $9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 due primarily to recent store closures.

  (1.8  

Decrease in non-cash asset impairment charges and store closure related charges to $1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from $5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

  (1.1  

Decrease in all other SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales. Other SG&A expenses decreased $2 million to $15 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from $17 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, primarily due to the timing of advertising expenses and a decrease in consulting fees.

We assess long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets (or asset group) may not be recoverable. Based on management’s review of the historical operating performance, including sales trends, gross margin rates, current cash flows from operations and the projected outlook for each of our stores, we determined that certain stores would not be able to generate sufficient cash flows over the remaining term of the related leases to recover our investment in the respective stores. As a result, we recorded non-cash impairment charges from continuing operations of approximately $1 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and approximately $4 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2011 to write-down the carrying value of certain long-lived store assets to their estimated fair values. During the third quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, we tested 101 and 221 stores, respectively, for impairment and recorded impairment charges related to 17 and 64 of these stores, respectively. The decrease in the number of stores tested for impairment year-over-year was primarily related to our recent closure of certain underperforming stores. In addition, based on historical operating performance and the projected outlook for these stores, we believe that the remaining asset value of approximately $6 million as of October 27, 2012, is recoverable.

Gain on Derivative Liability

We recorded a fair market adjustment of approximately $6 million related to the derivative liability in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. See Note 9 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements “Fair Value Measurements – Recurring Fair Value Measurements-Derivative Liability” for further discussion on the derivative liability.

Other Expense, Net

Other expense, net, was approximately $3 million and $1 million for the third quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. The increase in other expense, net, from fiscal 2011 to fiscal 2012 is primarily related to interest expense associated with the Term Loan described in Note 6 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Income Taxes

We recognized income tax expense of $0.1 million and an income tax benefit of $0.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. For fiscal 2012, we expect to continue to maintain a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets resulting in minimal income tax expense for the year. Information regarding the realizability of our deferred tax assets and our assessment of a need for a valuation allowance is contained in Note 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Income (loss) from Continuing Operations

Our income from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was approximately $1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, versus a loss from continuing operations of approximately $14 million, or $(0.21) per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 included a gain on the derivative liability of approximately $6 million as discussed in Note 9 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

The first three quarters (39 weeks) ended October 27, 2012 as compared to the first three quarters (39 weeks) ended October 29, 2011

Net Sales

Net sales increased to $612.6 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 from $599.6 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. The components of this $13.0 million increase in net sales are as follows:

For the first three quarters of fiscal 2012, comparable store net sales of Men’s and Women’s increased 3% and 2%, respectively. The increase in Men’s was attributable to increases in sales of bottoms and non-apparel, compared to the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. The increase in Women’s was driven by increases in sales of bottoms and non-apparel, partially offset by decreases in sales of tops, compared to the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. Apparel represented 85% of total Men’s sales for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 versus 86% in the first three quarters of fiscal 2011, while Women’s apparel was flat at 86% of total Women’s sales for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011. Total non-apparel sales represented a combined 15% of total sales for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 14% of total sales for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. Same-store sales transactions decreased from 13.3 million in the first three quarters of fiscal 2011 to 12.9 million in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012.

Gross Margin

Gross margin, after buying, distribution and occupancy costs, was $159.6 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 versus $135.9 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. As a percentage of net sales, gross margin was 26.1% for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 compared to 22.7% for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011.

As a result, we recorded non-cash impairment charges from continuing operations of approximately $3 million and $10 million during the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, to write-down the carrying value of certain long-lived store assets to their estimated fair values. Additionally, the Company wrote off approximately $0.9 million of excess store fixtures in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012.

Loss on Derivative Liability

We recorded a fair market adjustment of approximately $4 million related to the derivative liability in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012. See Note 9 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements “Fair Value Measurements – Recurring Fair Value Measurements-Derivative Liability” for further discussion on the derivative liability.

Other Expense, Net

Other expense, net, was approximately $10 million and $2 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. The increase in other expense, net, from fiscal 2011 to fiscal 2012 was primarily related to interest expense associated with the Term Loan described in Note 6 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Income Taxes

We recognized income tax expense of $0.6 million and $0.5 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. For fiscal 2012, we expect to continue to maintain a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets resulting in minimal income tax expense for the year. Information regarding the realizability of our deferred tax assets and our assessment of a need for a valuation allowance is contained in Note 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Loss from Continuing Operations

Our loss from continuing operations for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 was approximately $32 million, or $(0.48) per diluted share, versus a loss from continuing operations of approximately $60 million, or $(0.91) per diluted share, for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We have historically financed our operations primarily from internally generated cash flow and with short-term and long-term borrowings. Our primary cash requirements have been for the financing of inventories and construction of newly opened, remodeled, expanded or relocated stores. Based on current forecasts, we believe that cash flows from operating activities, working capital, borrowing availability under the New Credit Facility, and cash on hand resulting from the closing of the Term Loan will be sufficient to meet our operating and capital expenditure needs for the next twelve months. However, if we were to experience same-store sales declines similar to those which occurred in fiscal 2010 and 2009, we may be required to access most, if not all, of the New Credit Facility and potentially require other sources of financing to fund our operations, which sources might not be available.

Operating Cash Flows

Net cash used in operating activities in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 was $21.6 million, compared to $45.3 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. This decrease of $23.7 million was due primarily to higher sales and improved gross margins in the current fiscal year. Our primary use of cash in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011 was to purchase merchandise inventories, and was partially offset by increases in accounts payable. Such increases resulted from the seasonal variation between the ramp up for the holiday season and the annual low point for inventories at the end of our fiscal year. Non-cash adjustments to reconcile our net loss to net cash used in operating activities was approximately $30 million in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and $48 million in fiscal 2011, respectively, and were primarily related to depreciation expense and asset impairment charges in both periods.

Working Capital

Working capital at October 27, 2012, was $50 million compared to $62 million at January 28, 2012, a decrease of $12 million. The changes in working capital were as follows:

Investing Cash Flows

Net cash used in investing activities in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 was $3.1 million compared to $9.9 million used in investing activities for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011, a decrease in cash outflow of $6.8 million. Investing cash outflows in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011 were comprised primarily of capital expenditures for refreshing existing stores and information technology investments at the store level and associated with our new online platform. We expect total capital expenditures for fiscal 2012 to be approximately $15 million which is consistent with fiscal 2011. Investing cash inflows of $9 million in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 were primarily related to the receipt of restricted cash that was used as collateral to fund letters of credit outstanding under the Former Credit Facility.

Financing Cash Flows

Net cash used in financing activities in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 was $1.8 million compared to $0.3 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. The primary source of financing cash outflows in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 was principal payments under the New Credit Facility of $1.3 million. The primary driver of financing cash outflows in fiscal 2011 was payments for mortgage borrowing costs.

Operating lease obligations consist primarily of future minimum lease commitments related to store operating leases. The contractual obligations table above does not include common area maintenance (“CAM”) charges, insurance, or tax obligations, which are also required contractual obligations under our store operating leases. In many of our leases, CAM charges are not fixed and can fluctuate significantly from year to year for any particular store. Total store rental expenses, including CAM, for the first three quarters of fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011 were approximately $105 million and $119 million, respectively. Total CAM expenses may continue to fluctuate significantly from year-to-year as long-term leases come up for renewal at current market rates in excess of original lease terms and as we continue to close stores. Additional information regarding operating leases can be found below under the caption “Operating Leases.”

Obligations under our Executive Deferred Compensation Plan are equal to approximately $2 million as of October 27, 2012 and have been excluded from the contractual obligations table above as we are unable to reasonably determine the amount or the timing of the future payments.

Operating Leases

We lease our retail stores and certain equipment under operating lease agreements expiring at various dates through January 2023. Many of our retail store leases require us to pay CAM charges, insurance and property taxes. In addition, many of our retail store leases require us to pay percentage rent ranging from 2% to 20% when sales volumes exceed certain minimum sales levels. The initial terms of such leases are typically 8 to 10 years, some of which contain renewal options exercisable at our discretion. Most leases also contain rent escalation clauses that come into effect at various times throughout the lease term. Rent expense is recorded under the straight-line method over the life of the lease. Other rent escalation clauses can take effect based on changes in primary mall tenants throughout the term of a given lease. Many leases also contain cancellation or kick-out clauses in our favor that relieve us of any future obligation under a lease if specified criteria are met. These cancellation provisions typically apply if annual store sales levels do not exceed $1 million or mall occupancy targets are not achieved within the first 36 months of the lease. Generally, we are not required to make payments to our landlords in order to exercise our cancellation rights under these provisions. We are planning to close approximately 75 stores in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. The New Credit Facility and Term Loan do not preclude the transfer or disposal of assets related to the closure of such stores. None of our retail store leases contain purchase options.

Indemnifications

In the ordinary course of business, we may provide indemnifications of varying scope and terms to customers, vendors, lessors, business partners and other parties with respect to certain matters, including, but not limited to, losses arising out of our breach of such agreements, services to be provided by us, or intellectual property infringement claims made by third parties. In addition, we have entered into indemnification agreements with our directors and certain of our officers that will

require us to, among other things, indemnify them against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers. We maintain director and officer insurance, which may cover certain liabilities arising from our obligation to indemnify our directors and officers in certain circumstances.

It is not possible to determine our maximum potential liability under these indemnification agreements due to the limited history of prior indemnification claims and the unique facts and circumstances involved in each particular agreement. Such indemnification agreements may not be subject to maximum loss clauses. Historically, we have not incurred material costs as a result of obligations under these agreements.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any transactions with unconsolidated entities whereby we have financial guarantees, subordinated retained interests, derivative instruments, or other contingent arrangements that expose us to material continuing risks, contingent liabilities, or any other obligation under a variable interest in an unconsolidated entity that provides financing, liquidity, market risk, or credit risk support to us.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Information regarding recent accounting pronouncements is contained in Note 3 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and is incorporated herein by reference.

Inflation

We do not believe that inflation has had a material effect on our results of operations in the recent past, including the first three quarters of fiscal 2012.

Seasonality and Quarterly Results

Our business is seasonal by nature. Our first quarter historically accounts for the smallest percentage of annual net sales with each successive quarter contributing a greater percentage than the last. In recent years, approximately 45% of our net sales have occurred in the first half of the fiscal year and 55% have occurred in the second half. The six to seven week selling periods for each of the back-to-school and holiday seasons together account for approximately 35% to 40% of our annual net sales and a higher percentage of our operating results on a combined basis. Our quarterly results of operations may also fluctuate significantly as a result of a variety of factors, including changes in consumer buying patterns, fashion trends, the timing and level of markdowns, the timing of store closings, expansions and relocations, competitive factors and general economic conditions.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

We are exposed to interest rate risk in connection with the New Credit Facility. Generally, direct borrowings under the New Credit Facility bear interest at a floating rate which, at the Company’s option, may be determined by reference to a LIBOR rate, plus 1.50% (1.71% at October 27, 2012). See Note 6 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

A sensitivity analysis was performed with respect to the New Credit Facility to determine the impact of unfavorable changes in interest rates on our cash flows. The sensitivity analysis determined that the estimated potential cash flow impact would be less than $10,000 in additional interest expense (for each $1 million borrowed) if interest rates were to increase by 10% over a three-month period. Actual interest charges incurred may differ from those estimated because of changes or differences in market rates, differences in amounts borrowed, timing and other factors.

We are exposed to market risks related to fluctuations in the market price of our common stock. The derivative liability associated with the Series B Preferred is recorded at fair value using an options pricing model which is dependent on the market price of our common stock. Changes in the value of the derivative are included as a component of earnings in current operations. A sensitivity analysis was performed with respect to the Series B Preferred to determine the impact of fluctuations in the market price of our common stock. The sensitivity analysis determined that the impact of a market price fluctuation of 10% would change the fair value of the derivative liability by approximately $2 million. See Note 9 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of our derivative liability and valuation thereof.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined under Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Exchange Act. These disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Our disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at a reasonable assurance level as of October 27, 2012.

No change in our internal control over financial reporting occurred during the most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
