Golfsmith International said net revenues for the third quarter ended Oct. 2, 2010 increased 3% to $93.3 million as compared to $90.6 million for the prior year quarter. The net revenue increase was driven by sales from new store openings and a 5.8% increase in net revenues from its direct-to-consumer channel, partially offset by a 1.7% decrease in comparable store sales.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Operating loss totaled $1.1 million compared to operating income of $1.4 million for the same period last year. Third quarter 2010 operating loss included $1.6 million in charges related to store closings and lease termination costs. Third quarter 2009 operating income included a $0.4 million charge related to litigation settlement costs.
  • Net loss totaled $1.1 million, or 7 cents per share, as compared to net income of $1.1 million or 7 cents per diluted share for the same period last year. Excluding the store closing charges, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 would have been $500,000 or 3 cents per diluted share. Excluding the litigation settlement charge, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 would have been $1.5 million or 9 cents per diluted share.
  • As of Oct. 2, 2010, the company had $42.6 million of outstanding borrowings under its credit facility and borrowing availability of $18.4 million. This compares to $33.7 million of outstanding borrowings under its credit facility, and $22.5 million of borrowing availability at Oct. 3, 2009.
  • Average store inventory remained flat at Oct. 2, 2010 as compared to Oct. 3, 2009.

Martin Hanaka, chairman and chief executive officer of Golfsmith, commented, “Despite lower than expected comparable store sales performance, we continue to see solid evidence from industry data sources of market share gains as we execute on our strategic plan. Our initiatives have led to a sequential increase in conversion rates, improvement in our direct-to consumer business, and a stronger overall store base due to recent store closures.

As we continue to operate in an inconsistent retail environment, we will remain diligent in maintaining disciplined inventory management and expense controls, while at the same time making strategic investments to drive sales. Looking ahead, I am confident that we are well positioned for future growth when the macro-economic environment improves.”
