11:28 EDTAMZN, BKSBarnes & Noble soars after agreeing to split retail, Nook businesses
Shares of bookseller Barnes & Noble (BKS) surged after the company reported better than anticipated fourth quarter revenue and announced that its board authorized management to separate its Retail and Nook Media divisions. WHAT'S NEW: The book retailer announced that its board authorized company management to take steps to separate the Barnes & Noble Retail and NOOK Media businesses into two separate public companies and it expects to complete the separation by the end of Q1 of next calendar year. In terms of the separation of the divisions, the company said, "We have determined that these businesses will have the best chance of optimizing shareholder value if they are capitalized and operated separately. We fully expect that our Retail and NOOK Media businesses will continue to have long-term, successful business relationships with each other after separation.” Barnes & Noble experienced a loss per share of (72c) in Q4, which was a steeper loss than analyst's expectations for (49c) per share. The company's Q4 revenue of $1.32B beat analyst's consensus forecast of $1.19B. The bookseller reported that its retail same-store-sales in the quarter were down 4.1%. Excluding the effect of February's harsh winter weather, Q4 "Core" SSS decreased 0.5%, which was in-line with previously reported Q3 results, B&N noted. NOOK device and accessories sales were $25M for Q4 and $260M for FY14, declining 30.1% and 44.8%, respectively, due to lower selling volume and lower average selling prices. Barnes & Noble sees FY15 College same-store-sales, Retail comparable bookstore sales and "Core" comparable bookstore sales to be down in the low-single digits. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's earnings conference call, Barnes & Noble said it does not plan to open any retail bookstores in FY15 and it does not intend to further discuss details of the separation of its Retail and Nook Media divisions at this time. Still, the company says that it is "encouraged" by core business trends. Barnes & Noble is expecting FY15 capital expenditures of $140M. The company noted that it has "clearly seen an uptick" in sales of Hachette books due to the Amazon (AMZN) fight. PRICE ACTION: During late-morning trading, shares of Barnes & Noble were up $1.24 or 6%, to $21.80.
