J.Jill, Inc. (NYSE:JILL) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended August 1, 2020.

James S. Scully, Interim Chief Executive Officer of J.Jill, Inc. stated, “During the second quarter we continued to navigate through the challenges presented from the COVID-19 pandemic. With the majority of our stores temporarily closed through the first half of the quarter, our teams focused on driving sales through our direct to consumer channel. We also continued to tightly manage expenses as well as our working capital needs. I am pleased with our disciplined approach to inventory management and believe we are taking the right actions to further strengthen our financial position. I am proud of all of our teams for their hard work and dedication to J.Jill, and we look forward to driving further progress as we move through the balance of the year and beyond.”

For the second quarter ended August 1, 2020:

Outlook

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the pace at which there are new developments, locally and globally, has created a great deal of uncertainty. Consequently, the Company is not providing financial guidance at this time but continues to expect to end the year with approximately 275 stores, with the majority of additional closings completed early in the third quarter. The Company continues to expect total capital spend in fiscal 2020 to be approximately $5.0 million.

Recent Developments

Following the end of the Company’s fiscal first quarter, on June 15, 2020, the Company announced that it had fallen out of compliance with certain covenants set forth in its ABL and term loan credit facilities. Beginning on June 15, 2020, the Company entered into two Forbearance Agreements (the "Forbearance Agreements") with the lenders under its ABL and term loan credit facilities with respect to the aforementioned noncompliance. Subsequently, the Forbearance Agreements were extended with the latest extension through September 26, 2020.

On September 1, 2020, the Company announced it entered into a Transaction Support Agreement (“TSA”) with lenders holding greater than 70.0% of the Company’s term loans (“Consenting Lenders”) on the principal terms of a financial restructuring (“Transaction”) that would result in a waiver of any past non-compliance with the terms of the Company’s credit facilities and provide the company with additional liquidity.

Mark Webb, Chief Financial Officer of J.Jill, Inc. commented, “We are very pleased that we have reached an agreement with more than 70.0% of our lenders and a majority of our shareholders that we expect will strengthen our financial position and better enable us to move forward in driving long-term growth for J.Jill.”

If the Transaction is consented to by the requisite term loan lenders, the Transaction will be consummated on an out-of-court basis. The out-of-court Transaction would extend the maturity of certain participating debt by 2 years, through May 2024, enabling the Company to strengthen its balance sheet and better position itself for long-term growth. The Company is working actively with the Consenting Lenders to obtain the necessary consents. In the event that the Transaction does not receive the required consents, the parties to the TSA have agreed to a prepackaged plan of reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Code (the “In-Court Transaction”) the key terms of which have been negotiated, including additional financing during the Chapter 11 process. While the Company hopes to receive the required consents to execute the out-of-court Transaction, the Company anticipates that the In-Court Transaction would be a swift process in which all vendor claims would be unimpaired and paid in full, and from which the Company would emerge with a strong and healthy balance sheet.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation expense, write-off of property and equipment, and other non-recurring expenses and one-time items. We present Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated basis because management uses it as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the primary methods for planning and forecasting overall expected performance of our business and for evaluating on a quarterly and annual basis actual results against such expectations. Further, we recognize Adjusted EBITDA as a commonly used measure in determining business value and as such, use it internally to report results.
  • Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, which represents operating income (loss) plus other non-recurring expense and one-time items. We present Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations because management uses it as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts, and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period.
  • Adjusted Net Income (Loss), which represents net income (loss) plus other non-recurring expenses and one-time items. We present Adjusted Net Income (Loss) because management uses it as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period.
  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Share (“Adjusted Diluted EPS”) represents Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted Diluted EPS is presented as a supplemental measure in assessing our operating performance, and we believe that it is helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as a measure of our comparative operating performance from period to period.

While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS are useful in evaluating our business, they are non-GAAP financial measures that have limitations as analytical tools. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS should not be considered alternatives to, or substitutes for, net income (loss) or EPS, which are calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS differently or not at all, which reduces the usefulness of such non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. We recommend that you review the reconciliation and calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS to net income (loss) and EPS, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, under “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as well as Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Income (Loss) to Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations” and not rely solely on Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income (Loss) from Operations, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS or any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
