Financial report summary

  • The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted, and may continue to disrupt, our business, which could adversely affect our financial performance
  • Our growth strategy depends in part on our ability to open new stores and is subject to many unpredictable factors.
  • Failure to manage our growth effectively could harm our business and operating results.
  • Increased transportation costs could harm our results of operations.
  • Damage, destruction or disruption of our distribution centers could significantly impact our operations and impede our ability to distribute certain of our products.
  • Our representative office in China may present increased legal and operational risks.
  • Failure to effectively manage our third-party installers may present increased legal and operational risks.
  • Unfavorable allegations, government investigations and legal actions surrounding our products or us could harm our reputation and impair our ability to grow or sustain our business.
  • We are involved in a number of legal proceedings and, while we cannot predict the outcomes of these proceedings and other contingencies with certainty, some of the outcomes of these proceedings could adversely affect our business and financial condition.
  • Our overall compliance program, including the Lacey Compliance Plan, is complex and costly to maintain. A failure to manage these programs could adversely affect our ability to conduct business, result in significant fines and other penalties, damage our brand and reputation, and, consequently, negatively impact our financial position and results of operations.
  • Our insurance coverage and self-insurance reserves may not cover existing or future claims.
  • Federal, provincial, state or local laws and regulations, including tariffs, or our failure to comply with such laws and regulations, and our obligations under certain settlement agreements related to our products could increase our expenses, restrict our ability to conduct our business and expose us to legal risks.
  • Our ability and cost to obtain cost-effective products, especially from China and other international suppliers, and the operations of many of our international suppliers are subject to risks that may be beyond our control and that could harm our operations and profitability.
  • Failure to identify and develop relationships with a sufficient number of qualified suppliers could affect our ability to obtain products that meet our high quality standards.
  • The failure of our suppliers to comply with applicable laws, use ethical practices, and meet our quality standards could result in our suspending purchasing from them, negatively impacting net sales, and could expose us to reputational and legal risks.
  • Product liability claims could adversely affect our reputation, which could adversely affect our net sales and profitability.
  • Our ability to offer hardwood flooring, particularly products made of more exotic species of hardwood, depends on the continued availability of sufficient suitable hardwood at reasonable cost.
  • Ineffectiveness of our advertising strategy or negative perceptions of our brand could result in reduced customer traffic, thereby impacting net sales and profitability.
  • Competition could cause price declines, decrease demand for our products and decrease our market share.
  • Cyclicality in the home flooring industry, coupled with our lack of diversity in our lines of business, could cause volatility and risk to our business.
  • The inability to access our Revolving Credit Facility or other sources of capital, could cause our financial position, liquidity, and results of operations to suffer.
  • If our management information systems, including our digital platform or our call center, experience disruptions, it could disrupt our business and reduce our net sales.
  • We may incur costs and losses resulting from security risks we face in connection with our electronic processing, transmission and storage of confidential customer information.
  • Alternative e-commerce and online shopping offerings may erode our customer base and adversely affect our business.
  • Our common stock price may be volatile and all or part of any investment in our common stock may be lost.
  • Our anti-takeover defense provisions may cause our common stock to trade at market prices lower than it might absent such provisions.
Management Discussion
  • We believe the selected sales data, the percentage relationship between Net Sales and major categories in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and the percentage change in the dollar amounts of each of the items presented below are important in evaluating the performance of our business operations.
  • 1      Average sale is defined as the average invoiced sales order, measured quarterly, excluding returns as well as transactions under $100 (which are generally sample orders or add-on/accessories to existing orders).
  • 2      Average retail price per unit (square feet for flooring and other units of measures for moldings and accessories) sold is calculated on a total company basis and excludes non-merchandise revenue.
