IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tilly’s, Inc. (NYSE: TLYS, the “Company”) today announced net sales results for the nine-week period ended December 31, 2022 (the “2022 holiday period”) in advance of its attendance and participation in the ICR Conference 2023 on January 9-10, 2023.
“We believe this year’s inflationary environment negatively impacted our customers’ spending and our results during the 2022 holiday period, particularly when compared to 2021’s post-pandemic record-setting holiday period,” commented Ed Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite a tougher holiday season this year, we anticipate ending fiscal 2022 with a healthy, debt-free balance sheet and well-managed inventory.”
The scope and nature of the impacts of current market conditions on the Company’s business continue to evolve. As a result, there can be no guarantee that the Company’s financial results through the remainder of the fourth quarter will remain consistent with those of the 2022 holiday period. In addition, the foregoing information does not reflect the full financial results for the 2022 holiday period. The Company’s actual financial results for the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and full fiscal year ending January 28, 2023, are subject to completion of the period, the finalization of its normal quarter-end and year-end accounting procedures, and the audit of its fiscal 2022 financial statements. The Company currently expects to report its actual results for the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and full fiscal year on or about March 9, 2023.
Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Outlook Update
Based on the Company’s net sales results for the 2022 holiday period and recent historical trends for the fiscal month of January, the Company now expects its fiscal 2022 fourth quarter net sales to be in the range of approximately $178 million to $180 million and its loss per share to be in the range of $(0.01) to $(0.04). The Company expects to end fiscal 2022 with 249 total stores, total cash and marketable securities of approximately $110 million, and with reduced inventory per square foot compared to the end of fiscal 2021.
