HD Supply, Inc. today reported net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 of $2.0 billion, an increase of $342 million, or 20.7 percent, as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Operating income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was a loss of $89 million, impacted by a $152 million non-cash, goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charge recorded as a result of the amendment to the Crown Bolt strategic purchase agreement with The Home Depot. On a 52-week basis, operating income excluding the impairment charge for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 increased by $33 million to $49 million, as compared to $16 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011

During the fourth quarter, the company amended  the Crown Bolt strategic purchase agreement with The Home Depot. The amendment extended the agreement of Crown Bolt as the exclusive supplier of products purchased by The Home Depot from Crown Bolt for five years through January 31, 2020, and eliminated the minimum purchase requirement beginning in fiscal 2013.

On a 52-week basis, operating income excluding the impairment charge for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 increased by $33 million to $49 million, as compared to $16 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011

Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter grew in the company’s four largest business units: Facilities Maintenance, Waterworks, Power Solutions, and White Cap.

HD Supply reported net sales for fiscal 2012 of $8.0 billion, an increase of $1.0 billion, or 14.3 percent, as compared to fiscal 2011. On a 52-week basis, net sales for fiscal 2012 increased $859 million, or 12.2 percent, as compared to fiscal 2011

 HD Supply’s fiscal year is a 52- or 53-week period ending on the Sunday nearest to January 31. Fiscal 2012, ending on February 3, 2013, included 53 weeks and fiscal 2011, ending on January 29, 2012, included 52 weeks. Excluding the impact of the 53rd week in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, net sales increased $194 million, or 11.7 percent, as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011

 “In fiscal 2012 we had two strategic objectives, which were to continue to grow our business and strengthen our capital position,” stated Joe DeAngelo, CEO of HD Supply. “With growth across all of our industry leading business units and the successful refinancing of our debt, we achieved these two important milestones. Our relentless focus on our customers, deep and expanding product mix and the tremendous efforts of our associates were the critical drivers for our success.”
