Operational Results Summary
Chairman and CEO, Christopher D. Bering, said "we continue to be proud of the Company's results in this challenging operating environment. Fortunately, I have been managing the vicissitudes of consumer-based markets for over 20 years and in my time, I have seen it all. This time is no different. Though the market remains healthy and the consumer's appetite for our product assortment is strong, upward cost pressure has begun to creep into the market through increased product and shipping costs which impacted this quarter's profitability. We have already taken swift action to remain strong and nimble including managing operating expenses, raising product prices where we can, and making sure we have plenty of inventory on hand as we prepare for the fast-approaching holiday season."
Mr. Bering continued, "when we restructured the business in the 2017 to 2019 period to accelerate our growth plans, we deliberately created a flexible operating structure so we could successfully manage through all kinds of market environments. We remain committed to adhering to this philosophy paired with aggressive new product rollout plans. To that end, the Spring 2021 product rollout is the biggest in the Company's history and we have a very large pipeline of new products to be rolled out over the next twelve months. Over market cycles, we continue to believe we will grow our market share in the very large and fragmented online domestic home décor market."
Andrew Bass, Chairman of the Capital Allocation Committee said that "we reported Q2 2021 growth over Q2 2019 growth to show how we analyze the business over multi-year periods. In Q2 2020 we began to see the direct impact that COVID-19 had in accelerating the consumers push to shopping online which will continue to create difficult year over year comparisons through the balance of the year as the world reopens. Regardless, as we take a longer-term view of the business, we remain optimistic in our business model and our ability to increase per-share intrinsic value."
