Exhibit 99.1

JOANN ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR FISCAL 2023 RESULTS

 

Topline sales gained momentum post-Black Friday, improving sequentially through the fourth quarter including positive total comparable sales in January 2023
Fiscal 2023 year-end inventories down 11% compared to last year with a clearance position less than 5%
Cost headwinds are becoming tailwinds through on-going progress of Focus, Simplify and Grow initiative
New credit facility agreement strengthens balance sheet for fiscal year 2024
 

HUDSON, OH (March 23, 2023) — JOANN Inc. (NASDAQ: JOAN) (“JOANN”), the nation’s category leader in fabric and sewing with one of the largest assortments of arts and crafts products, today reported results for its fourth quarter and full year ended January 28, 2023.

JOANN’s President and Chief Executive Officer Wade Miquelon commented, “In fiscal year 2023, we navigated a challenging environment spanning macroeconomic uncertainty, unprecedented inflation, continued supply chain disruption, as well as lapping pandemic fueled growth that positively impacted fiscal year 2022. We gained topline sales momentum at the end of the fourth quarter, delivering positive monthly comparable sales in January 2023. We also ended the year in an extremely clean inventory position with total inventory down 11% to last year and a clearance position of less than 5%.”

Miquelon concluded, “As we look to fiscal year 2024, our focus is on cash generation while continuing to deliver a great customer experience. We have already initiated multiple actions to support the enhancement of our free cash flow and liquidity position including our Focus, Simplify and Grow cost reduction initiative which we expect will reduce annual costs by approximately $200 million. Based on these efforts, combined with the positive momentum we saw in the fourth quarter, strong engagement with our core enthusiasts in the early Spring selling season, and our continued investments in strategic initiatives, we believe that JOANN is well-positioned for fiscal year 2024.”

Scott Sekella, JOANN’s Chief Financial Officer added, “While many of the cost headwinds we faced in fiscal year 2023 are becoming tailwinds, we believe it is prudent to continue to take proactive steps to strengthen our balance sheet. With this in mind, our new credit facility is another tool to improve our balance sheet as we focus on cash generation throughout fiscal year 2024."

 

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

 

Net sales declined by 5.8% compared to the same period last year to $692.8 million with total comparable sales decreasing 5.9%. E-Commerce sales declined at a more moderate rate of 4.6% compared to last year and accounted for 14% of revenue in the fourth quarter, a 20 basis point increase in the penetration rate over last year.
Gross profit of $303.7 million on a GAAP basis decreased by 6.4% compared to the fourth quarter of last year. After adjusting for $16.7 million of excess import freight costs, adjusted gross profit of $320.4 million declined 10.9% compared to the same quarter last year.

Recent Developments:

This new credit facility is an incremental facility to the existing $500 million asset based revolving credit loan facility and bears interest at the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) plus 975 basis points, with one 100 basis point step-down.
