you. your Instructions] of the Lyon Camilo And proceed first questions. with our Thank Please BTIG. question line comes from [Operator with

Camilo Lyon

momentum. wanted ask to morning firstly Good provided. the Gap] you a on to you. just the [Audio that great and Thank congratulations guidance start Donna, I year, just

achieve range about mid-thirties digit you sales talked growth. EBITDA mid-single you if So

from XXX ensuing down from little a expansion. freight, what suggest coming already put that please. expense just you see margin it profile over you XXX is incremental it then had points that else experiencing Is that margin up back would decelerate basis just And gross talked not a been year? pressure substantially where you pipe basis you of Is something about about half the margin the margin you've that gross of into contemplating? there would the promotions? we're points, the amount pressures freight articulate of Can yet aside I've the that You follow-up quarter

Donna Dellomo

morning. good Yes,

of similar compounding. just out there people keep think I a we're so to that freight other yes, the lot So headwinds

position difficult, container originally had our as side rates specifically making we inventory where is inbound So it's and port it although freight congestion, more it availability, to get projected need it's the and it's more ahead a us, inbound on a costing to inventory just really more get in. lot for other the good people us in that and of of bring some

not So to it's that, at related that's it's – discounting all. principally

or will the more but on do It We that, discounting in dollars even can have sure related in think with QX it's tell in that do still doing freight. strong to those it a to -- very range. is you're EBITDA I we're I reduction that going the QX. still We're when meaningful takeaway but QX make XXX% impact be the inbound positive discounting. pull to headwinds real you modeling, will more that mid-single will most adjusted in the headwinds, have we we generate your to levers planning to than digit in

line way teams the to through the So hard mitigate all to really really, top working are from SG&A.

Jack Krause

Yes, thank you This is for Jack. that.

way sell and to us Just from are will And stickiness growing, to quarters expected to quarter get to we discounts. saw lot the continue on which decreased a those. we strength brand as last at and I add the of you in think the is really couple believe company systemically leveraging what seeing well and we're enable that, the to the of

order inventory really costs been saying potential we'll has in team the mitigate second half. the and great in at freight be later in bringing to However, the

to So, margin what been of those the half. really scaling related starting just of growth the seeing half we're the is and half about strengthening of is, second headwinds a of in the impact get some talking in have and business brand. people first the the lack of really first and headwinds to But these

I think situation and transitory is we other freight trends all So, long one there's the definitely a two terms in would there, is of different agree going one term headwinds.

Donna Dellomo

were bring our also too, quarter, call, down inventory you impacted reserves. will thing Camilo, fourth vendor third in quarter discounting. gross able recall one margin, our earnings and fourth that from throw if to I things had substantial that We even we other some

not our started rebate. is, necessarily we've what in with done working it to to So, give vendors us we've

first to pricing. impactful getting the actually So on those of less the one we're rebates time impact are be and quarter going it in

us So, in that pricing year helping time. the throughout the versus is one reduction

that there's that we work with one us -- know have get we you gives So, that still vendor we that rebate.

the be as years, won't inventory just it rebate seeing as we not product discounting in it again we impactful. prior in the on in number was benefits we're any, The So, and it from reserves. call anticipate also the do reduction

So that's well. something else as

Camilo Lyon

And great question it, my correctly, to really it have reflective of I is, more just you from sounded If second you're more perspective? consumers you Got what color. remarks heard then innovation seeing the from prepared you. consumer the of coming like some products, demanding

of function true? of you. the question next of Are brand? how that is step update timing coincide change that? is, Thank a that now that now the innovation requests has And from the what’s the So and with And been sort pull does they’ve, you launch? getting on the this consumers awareness the that the expected

Jack Krause

Brian Nagel

parts my QX is suggests strength and clearly your different the different So as first economy question, differences are any the differently, performing places, sales, country, continued stores perform your regard activity? and showrooms with the then guidance in reopening sales paces, to regional strong but -- just are different in you now reopenings different seeing QX, of

Shawn Nelson

I seeing anything getting note what we’re normal to whole a Not particular have pandemic called say relationship the now strength we're seeing we’re that note. guess how is, of would during as performing particular the it’s our a, back in nothing showrooms new period think business, were. open now. in markets across And I to right to I been the

Brian Nagel

question marketing the Well the I it. comments at talked TikTok in prepared of I your have, Jack, and you the overall you look some about efficiency mean crosscurrents the think do marketing efforts, what new now, think, their Got we I is marketing second at how should clearly pandemic going about Lovesac this of but and probably with efficiency that how some were point? overall doing forward? I mean, there existing is you

Jack Krause

it’s showrooms the a and think again, Yes, of trade they’re looking at we continue to certainly for at way. we’re is And well the area, way CLV that includes a as interconnected, look it as CAC separate us to at, them which eCom. ratio so really, in But ultimate I looking to businesses. hard

seeing we’re classic us going at conversion a unlike what rates as sales think the order capital direct-to-consumer either What of We we’re efficiency at if foot been. and classical pre-shopping high including ever to costs them, those incremental driven touchpoint, I capital what as and showrooms at I include high brick-and-mortar a being traditional or square be in touchpoint very as measures, company look seeing we But it and think efficient. our in to that’s and do at online. is it it’s because would continue allow you as ever the the, So costs by per lot they’ve they’re to is look do. are been,

more that to that, more from trade they’ve the been, as but we’re we looked a forward, the which business valuation lot getting being as create to a as customer. ever trade commentary away these Really order think of the level. company So about I to alluded thinking of at Shawn if to go brands is efficient the assets areas of of total CTC strong getting more historical that’s local about businesses at in you the ways, is has and closer the much area just, that to are deployment and closer
