GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) (“GameStop” or the “Company”) today released financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 28, 2023. The Company’s condensed and consolidated financial statements, including GAAP and non-GAAP results, are below. The Company’s Form 10-K and supplemental information can be found at https://investor.gamestop.com/.

FOURTH QUARTER OVERVIEW

  • Net sales were $2.226 billion, compared to $2.254 billion in the prior year's fourth quarter.
  • Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $453.4 million, or 20.4% of sales, compared to $538.9 million, or 23.9% of sales, in the prior year's fourth quarter.
  • Net income was $48.2 million, compared to a net loss of $147.5 million for the prior year’s fourth quarter.
  • Inventory was $682.9 million at the close of the period, compared to $915.0 million at the close of the prior year's fourth quarter, reflecting the Company’s ongoing focus on maintaining a healthy inventory position.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $1.391 billion at the close of the quarter.
  • Long-term debt remains limited to a low-interest, unsecured term loan associated with the French government’s response to COVID-19.

FULL YEAR OVERVIEW

  • Generated net sales of $5.927 billion for the fiscal year, compared to $6.011 billion for fiscal year 2021.
  • Increased full-year sales in the collectibles category, which is an area in which the Company continues prioritizing long-term growth.
  • Completed the majority of implementations and upgrades related to the Company’s infrastructure, systems, shipping capabilities, and online and mobile platforms.
  • Initiated cost cutting initiatives and headcount reductions over the course of the year to increase operational efficiency.
  • Established an equity incentive program for store leaders and tenured associates to increase their compensation and strengthen alignment of interests with fellow stockholders.
  • Set a go-forward strategic direction focused on efficiency, profitability and pragmatic growth.

CONFERENCE CALL INFORMATION

The Company will host an investor conference call today, March 21, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. ET to review its financial results. The phone number for the investor conference call is 1-877-407-6169 and the confirmation code is 13736983. This call, along with supplemental information, can also be accessed at https://investor.gamestop.com/. A recording of the conference call will be made available on the Company’s investor relations website for two months.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER METRICS

As a supplement to the Company’s 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 expenses, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in evaluating the Company’s core operating performance. Adjusted SG&A, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and Adjusted EBITDA exclude the effect of items such as transformation costs, asset impairments, store closure costs, severance, as well as divestiture costs. Results reported as constant currency exclude the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates by converting the Company’s local currency financial results using the prior period exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to the Company’s current period reported results. The Company’s 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 following tables reconcile the Company's SG&A, operating earnings, net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share as presented in its consolidated statements of operations and prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") to its adjusted SG&A, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted earnings (loss) per share. The diluted weighted-average shares outstanding used to calculate 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 tax adjustments below for the 13 and 52 weeks ended January 28, 2023, respectively, include provisions for the tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments. The reconciliations below are from continuing operations only.

(1) Current year includes the impact of cash severance costs partially offset by stock-based compensation forfeitures related to workforce optimization efforts in connection with our transformation initiatives. Prior year includes cash severance and stock-based compensation costs for key personnel that separated from the Company and expenses for consultants and advisors related to the transformation initiatives.

 

(2) Prior year includes transaction costs associated with our at-the-market ("ATM") offering. Adjusted net loss in the prior year also includes the impact of the make-whole premium and accelerated amortization associated with the voluntary redemption of the 2023 Senior Notes recognized in interest (income) expense and other, net in our Consolidated Statements of Operations.

 

(3) Prior year amount related to cash severance costs and stock-based compensation have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

Non-GAAP Measures and Other Metrics

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted SG&A expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings (loss) per share are supplemental financial measures of the Company’s performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures 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, net interest (income) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, 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, adjusted SG&A expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings (loss) per share as analytical tools 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, adjusted SG&A expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings (loss) per share 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, adjusted SG&A expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings (loss) per share 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.
