Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Net revenues in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased by $5,929,000, or 0.5%, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019, with comparable brand revenue growth of 2.6%. This slight decline was primarily driven by the temporary closure of all 616 of our retail stores throughout the back half of the quarter due toCOVID-19,
  • For the first quarter of fiscal 2020, we delivered positive comparable brand revenue growth in almost all of our brands.

In the Pottery Barn brand, despite a decline in comparable brand revenues for the quarter, we began the quarter with positive trends in all product divisions and ouron-line
  • Across the company, we implemented planned reductions in selling, general and administrative expenses, inventory and capital expenditures and we will continue to prioritize investments in strategic priorities. In order to further bolster our financial flexibility, we also increased our liquidity position. As of May 3, 2020, we now have over $860,000,000 in cash as a result of our performance and our decision to draw down on our existing revolving line of credit. Additionally, subsequent to quarter end, we also were able to obtain additional liquidity through the extension of our $300,000,000 term loan and an additional $200,000,000 in an unsecured364-day
