   Thursday, March 03, 2016 6:45:00 AM ET

--Fiscal Year 2015 Net Sales exceeds $5 Billion, a Comparable Stores Sales increase of 2.1%, on Top of Last Year’s 4.9% Increase

--Comparable Store Inventory decreased 6% and Turnover improved 10%

--The Company expects Fiscal 2016 Comparable Stores Sales to increase 2.5% - 3.5% and Adjusted Net Income per Share in the range of $2.62 to $2.72

Burlington Stores, Inc. (BURL ), a nationally recognized off-price retailer of high-quality, branded apparel at everyday low prices, today announced its results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 30, 2016.

Tom Kingsbury, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are pleased with our 26% increase in Adjusted Net Income per Share, which was driven by our 5.9% total sales growth, expansion in AEBITDA margin, and share repurchase activity. In addition, we ended the year with reductions in both comparable store and aged inventories and began Fiscal 2016 with strong product offerings and significant open-to-buy to capitalize on the many opportunities we see in the market place."

Fiscal 2015 Fourth Quarter Operating Results (for the 13 week period ended January 30, 2016 compared with the 13 week period ended January 31, 2015):

-- Comparable store sales increased 0.1%, which follows a comparable store sales increase of 6.7% in the Fiscal 2014 fourth quarter. Comparable store sales excluding cold weather categories increased 4.0% vs. last year.

-- Net sales increased 3.7%, or $55.4 million, to $1,540.8 million. This increase includes the 0.1% increase in comparable store sales, as well as an increase of $58.3 million from new and non-comparable stores.

-- Gross margin declined by 120 basis points to 41.0% during the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2015, driven by increased shrink and markdown expense. During the quarter, product sourcing costs, which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A), were roughly flat to last year as a percentage of net sales.

-- SG&A, less product sourcing costs and adjustments consistent with our definition of Adjusted Net Income, as a percentage of net sales was 23.3%, which represented an approximate 100 basis points of improvement compared with the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2014. This improvement was primarily driven by a reduction in incentive compensation and worker’s compensation and general liability insurance, partially offset by an increase in stock based compensation.

-- Other revenue/Other income decreased $6.7 million from last year to $9.6 million, driven by a reduction in income from third party fragrance sales within our stores as the Company transitions to an owned category. In addition, the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2014 included a favorable $3.2 million one-time legal settlement.

-- Adjusted EBITDA declined 0.2%, or $0.5 million, to $224.7 million. Gross margin contraction and a reduction of Other revenue/Other income, partially offset by sales growth and the improvement in SG&A as a percentage of net sales contributed to a 60 basis point decrease in Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

-- Depreciation and amortization expense, exclusive of net favorable lease amortization, increased $2.0 million to $38.9 million.

-- Interest expense improved $0.2 million to $14.8 million from last year, driven by interest savings realized as a result of our term loan debt repayments since January 31, 2015, offset by increased borrowings on our ABL.

-- Adjusted tax expense was $61.6 million compared to $64.3 million last year. The adjusted effective tax rate was 36.0% vs. 37.1% last year. The decrease in the effective tax rate was the result of an increase in federal hiring credits and a decrease in state tax rate.

-- Adjusted Net Income increased 0.3% to $109.3 million, or $1.49 per share vs. $1.43 per share last year. Fully diluted shares outstanding were 73.4 million at the end of the quarter compared with 76.3 million outstanding last year.

Fiscal 2015 Operating Results (for the 52 week period ended January 30, 2016 compared with the 52 week period ended January 31, 2015):

-- Comparable store sales increased 2.1% following a 4.9% increase in Fiscal 2014.

-- Net sales increased 5.9%, or $284.4 million, to $5,098.9 million. This increase includes the 2.1% increase in comparable store sales, as well as an increase of $198.2 million from new and non-comparable stores.

-- Gross margin expanded by 30 basis points to 40.0% from 39.7%. This improvement was due to a reduction in markdown rate, which offset an approximate 30 basis point increase in product sourcing costs that are included in SG&A.

-- SG&A, less product sourcing costs and adjustments consistent with our definition of Adjusted Net Income, as a percentage of net sales was 26.7% vs. 27.2% last year. The 50 basis point improvement was driven by a reduction of incentive compensation, store payroll and advertising, partially offset by an increase in stock based compensation.

-- Other Revenue/Other Income decreased $9.1 million from last year to $36.8 million, driven by a reduction in income from third party fragrance sales within our stores as the Company transitions to an owned category. In addition, Fiscal 2014 included a favorable $3.2 million one-time legal settlement.

-- Adjusted EBITDA improved 8.0%, or $36.0 million, to $484.0 million. The 20 basis point expansion in Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales was driven by sales growth coupled with a decrease in SG&A as a percentage of sales, partially offset by a decline in Other revenue/Other income.

-- Depreciation and amortization expense, exclusive of net favorable lease amortization, increased $6.3 million to $148.0 million.

-- Interest Expense improved $24.7 million to $59.0 million from last year, driven by interest savings realized as a result of the 2014 term loan refinancing and debt repayments since January 31, 2015.

-- Adjusted tax expense was $102.5 million compared with $84.2 million last year. The adjusted effective tax rate was 37.0% vs. 37.8% last year. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily driven by a decrease in state tax rate.

-- Adjusted Net Income increased 26% to $174.6 million vs. $138.6 million last year, or $2.31 per share vs. $1.83 per share last year. Fully diluted shares outstanding were 75.4 million vs. 75.9 million shares last year.

Inventory:

-- Merchandise Inventories were $783.5 million vs. $788.7 million last year, primarily driven by a comparable store inventory decrease of 6%. This decrease was partially offset by new store inventory at our 25 net new stores. Pack and hold inventory represented 25% of inventory at quarter end versus 27% last year.

Share Repurchase Activity

-- During the fourth quarter, the Company invested $77.4 million of cash to repurchase 1.6 million shares of its common stock, bringing the total investment in share repurchases to $200.4 million for 3.9 million shares repurchased during Fiscal 2015. At year end, the Company had $199.6 million remaining on its share repurchase authorization.

Adjusted Net Income per Share, Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before (i)
net interest expense, (ii) loss on extinguishment of debt, (iii)
costs related to debt amendments, secondary offerings and other,
(iv) stock option modification expense, (v) advisory fees, (vi)
depreciation and amortization (vii) impairment charges, (viii)
amounts charged during the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2015 and Fiscal
2014 for certain ongoing litigation matters, (ix) taxes and (x)
other unusual, non-recurring or extraordinary expenses, losses or
charges) and Adjusted Tax Expense (income tax expense less the tax
effect of the reconciling items to get to Adjusted Net Income
(footnote (h) in the table below)), all of which are considered
Non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a Non-GAAP financial measure
is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial
position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that
are not normally excluded or included in the most directly
comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
                                                                                                 
Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income for the period plus (i)
net favorable lease amortization, (ii) costs related to debt
amendments, secondary offerings and other, (iii) stock option
modification expense, (iv) loss on the extinguishment of debt, (v)
impairment charges, (vi) advisory fees, (vii) amounts charged during
the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2015 and Fiscal 2014 for certain
ongoing litigation matters and (viii) other unusual, non-recurring
or extraordinary expenses, losses or charges, all of which are tax
effected to arrive at Adjusted Net Income.
                                                                                                 
Adjusted Net Income per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income
divided by the weighted average shares outstanding, as defined in
the table below.
                                                                                                 
The Company presents Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per
Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Tax Expense because it believes
they are useful supplemental measures in evaluating the performance
of the Company’s business and provide greater transparency into the
results of operations. In particular, the Company believes that
excluding certain items that may vary substantially in frequency and
magnitude from operating income are useful supplemental measures
that assist in evaluating the Company’s ability to generate earnings
and leverage sales, and to more readily compare these metrics
between past and future periods.
                                                                                                 
The Company believes that Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income
per Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Tax Expense provide
investors helpful information with respect to the Company’s
operations and financial condition. Other companies in the retail
industry may calculate these non-GAAP measures differently such that
the Company’s calculation may not be directly comparable. The
adjustments to these metrics are not in accordance with regulations
adopted by the SEC that apply to periodic reports presented under
the Exchange Act. Accordingly, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net
Income per Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Tax Expense may be
presented differently in filings made with the SEC than as presented
in this report or not presented at all.
