BED BATH & BEYOND INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)

1) Basis of Presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared without audit. In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals and elimination of intercompany balances and transactions) necessary to present fairly the financial position of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company") as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013 and the results of its operations and comprehensive income for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012, respectively, and its cash flows for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012, respectively.

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with the requirements for Form 10-Q and consequently do not include all the disclosures normally required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Reference should be made to Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.'s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 2, 2013 for additional disclosures, including a summary of the Company's significant accounting policies, and to subsequently filed Forms 8-K.

Certain reclassifications have been made to the fiscal 2012 consolidated statement of cash flows to conform to the fiscal 2013 consolidated statement of cash flows presentation.

The Company accounts for its operations as two operating segments: North American Retail and Institutional Sales. The Institutional Sales operating segment, which is comprised of Linen Holdings, does not meet the quantitative thresholds under GAAP and therefore is not a reportable segment.

2) Fair Value Measurements

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., “the exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In determining fair value, the Company uses various valuation approaches, including quoted market prices and discounted cash flows. The hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from independent sources. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect a company’s judgment concerning the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available under the circumstances. The fair value hierarchy is broken down into three levels based on the reliability of inputs as follows:
 
 • Level 1 – Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments that the Company is able to access. Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these products does not entail a significant degree of judgment.
 
 • Level 2 – Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for instruments that are similar, or quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar instruments, and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets.
 
 • Level 3 – Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.

As of August 31, 2013, the Company’s financial assets utilizing Level 1 inputs include long term investment securities traded on active securities exchanges. The Company did not have any financial assets utilizing Level 2 inputs. Financial assets utilizing Level 3 inputs included long term investments in auction rate securities consisting of preferred shares of closed end municipal bond funds (See “Investment Securities,” Note 4). 

To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. Accordingly, the Company’s degree of judgment exercised in determining fair value is greatest for instruments categorized in Level 3. In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, an asset or liability must be classified in its entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the measurement of fair value. 
 
 
-7-

 
Valuation techniques used by the Company must be consistent with at least one of the three possible approaches: the market approach, income approach and/or cost approach. The Company’s Level 1 valuations are based on the market approach and consist primarily of quoted prices for identical items on active securities exchanges. The Company’s Level 3 valuations of auction rate securities, which had temporary valuation adjustments of approximately $3.5 million and $2.0 million as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, respectively, are based on the income approach, specifically, discounted cash flow analyses which utilize significant inputs based on the Company’s estimates and assumptions. As of August 31, 2013, the inputs used in the Company’s discounted cash flow analysis included current coupon rates ranging from 0.10% to 0.15%, an estimated redemption period of 5 years and a discount rate of 1.54%. The discount rate was based on market rates for risk-free tax-exempt securities, as adjusted for a risk premium to reflect the lack of liquidity of these investments. Assuming a higher discount rate, a longer estimated redemption period and lower coupon rates would result in a lower fair market value. Conversely, assuming a lower discount rate, a shorter estimated redemption period and higher coupon rates would result in a higher fair market value.

The following tables present the valuation of the Company’s financial assets as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, measured at fair value on a recurring basis by input level:

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, investment securities, accounts payable and certain other liabilities. The Company’s investment securities consist primarily of U.S. Treasury securities, which are stated at amortized cost, and auction rate securities, which are stated at their approximate fair value. The book value of all financial instruments is representative of their fair values.

3) Cash and Cash Equivalents

Included in cash and cash equivalents are credit and debit card receivables from banks, which typically settle within five business days, of $95.5 million and $87.8 million as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, respectively.

4) Investment Securities

Short term
    455.6       449.9  
Total investment securities
  $ 537.1     $ 527.2  

Auction Rate Securities

As of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities represented approximately $51.0 million par value of auction rate securities, less temporary valuation adjustments of approximately $3.5 million and $2.0 million, respectively. Since these valuation adjustments are deemed to be temporary, they are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of a related tax benefit, and did not affect the Company’s net earnings. These securities at par are invested in preferred shares of closed end municipal bond funds, which are required, pursuant to the Investment Company Act of 1940, to maintain minimum asset coverage ratios of 200%. All of these available-for-sale investments carried triple-A credit ratings from one or more of the major credit rating agencies as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, and none of them are mortgage-backed debt obligations. As of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, the Company’s available-for-sale investments have been in a continuous unrealized loss position for 12 months or more, however, the Company believes that the unrealized losses are temporary and reflect the investments’ current lack of liquidity. Due to their lack of liquidity, the Company classified approximately $47.5 million and $49.0 million of these investments as long term investment securities at August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, respectively.

U.S. Treasury Securities

As of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, the Company’s short term held-to-maturity securities included approximately $455.6 million and approximately $449.9 million, respectively, of U.S. Treasury Bills with remaining maturities of less than one year. These securities are stated at their amortized cost which approximates fair value, which is based on quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments (i.e., Level 1 valuation).
 
-9-

 
Long Term Trading Investment Securities
 
The Company’s long term trading investment securities, which are provided as investment options to the participants of the nonqualified deferred compensation plan, are stated at fair market value. The values of these trading investment securities included in the table above are approximately $34.0 million and $28.3 million as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, respectively.

5) Property and Equipment

As of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, included in property and equipment, net is accumulated depreciation and amortization of approximately $1.9 billion and $1.8 billion, respectively.

6) Stock-Based Compensation

The Company measures all employee stock-based compensation awards using a fair value method and records such expense, net of estimated forfeitures, in its consolidated financial statements. Currently, the Company’s stock-based compensation relates to restricted stock awards and stock options. The Company’s restricted stock awards are considered nonvested share awards.

Stock-based compensation expense for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 was approximately $13.6 million ($8.8 million after tax or $0.04 per diluted share) and approximately $28.4 million ($18.1 million after tax or $0.08 per diluted share), respectively. Stock-based compensation expense for the three and six months ended August 25, 2012 was approximately $11.0 million ($6.7 million after tax or $0.03 per diluted share) and approximately $23.8 million ($15.1 million after tax or $0.07 per diluted share), respectively. In addition, the amount of stock-based compensation cost capitalized for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012 was approximately $0.8 million and $0.7 million, respectively.

Incentive Compensation Plans

The Company currently grants awards under the Bed Bath & Beyond 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2012 Plan”), which amended and restated the Bed Bath & Beyond 2004 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2004 Plan”). The 2012 Plan includes an aggregate of 43.2 million common shares authorized for issuance. Outstanding awards that were covered by the 2004 Plan continue to be in effect under the 2012 Plan.

The 2012 Plan is a flexible compensation plan that enables the Company to offer incentive compensation through stock options (whether nonqualified stock options or incentive stock options), restricted stock awards, stock appreciation rights, performance awards and other stock based awards, including cash awards. Under the 2012 Plan, grants are determined by the Compensation Committee for those awards granted to executive officers and by an appropriate committee for all other awards granted. Awards of stock options and restricted stock generally vest in five equal annual installments beginning one to three years from the date of grant.

The Company generally issues new shares for stock option exercises and restricted stock awards. As of August 31, 2013, unrecognized compensation expense related to the unvested portion of the Company’s stock options and restricted stock awards was $30.9 million and $154.2 million, respectively, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 3.2 years and 3.9 years, respectively.

Stock Options

Stock option grants are issued at fair market value on the date of grant and generally become exercisable in either three or five equal annual installments beginning one year from the date of grant for options issued since May 10, 2010, and beginning one to three years from the date of grant for options issued prior to May 10, 2010, in each case, subject, in general to the recipient remaining in the Company’s employ or service on specified vesting dates. Option grants expire eight years after the date of grant for stock options issued since May 10, 2004, and expire ten years after the date of grant for stock options issued prior to May 10, 2004. All option grants are nonqualified.

(3) Expected volatility is based on the average of historical and implied volatility. The historical volatility is determined by observing actual prices of the Company’s stock over a period commensurate with the expected life of the awards. The implied volatility represents the implied volatility of the Company’s call options, which are actively traded on multiple exchanges, had remaining maturities in excess of twelve months, had market prices close to the exercise prices of the employee stock options and were measured on the stock option grant date.
(4) Based on the U.S. Treasury constant maturity interest rate whose term is consistent with the expected life of the stock options.

Changes in the Company’s stock options for the six months ended August 31, 2013 were as follows:

The weighted average fair value for the stock options granted during the first six months of fiscal 2013 and 2012 was $22.28 and $22.95, respectively. The weighted average remaining contractual term and the aggregate intrinsic value for options outstanding as of August 31, 2013 was 4.0 years and $128.4 million, respectively. The weighted average remaining contractual term and the aggregate intrinsic value for options exercisable as of August 31, 2013 was 2.7 years and $98.6 million, respectively. The total intrinsic value for stock options exercised during the first six months of fiscal 2013 and 2012 was $27.5 million and $24.3 million, respectively.

Net cash proceeds from the exercise of stock options for the first six months of fiscal 2013 were $36.2 million and the net associated income tax benefit was $15.6 million.

Restricted Stock

Restricted stock awards are issued and measured at fair market value on the date of grant and generally become vested in five equal annual installments beginning one to three years from the date of grant, subject, in general, to the recipient remaining in the Company’s employ or service on specified vesting dates. Vesting of restricted stock awarded to certain of the Company’s executives is dependent on the Company’s achievement of a performance-based test for the fiscal year of grant and, assuming achievement of the performance-based test, time vesting, subject, in general, to the executive remaining in the Company’s employ on specified vesting dates. The Company recognizes compensation expense related to these awards based on the assumption that the performance-based test will be achieved. Vesting of restricted stock awarded to the Company’s other employees is based solely on time vesting.

7) Shareholders’ Equity

Between December 2004 and December 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized, through several share repurchase programs, the repurchase of $7.450 billion of its shares of common stock. The Company has authorization to make repurchases from time to time in the open market or through other parameters approved by the Board of Directors pursuant to existing rules and regulations. The Company also purchases shares of its common stock to cover employee related taxes withheld on vested restricted stock awards. In the first six months of fiscal 2013, the Company repurchased approximately 8.5 million shares of its common stock for a total cost of approximately $581.3 million, bringing the aggregate total of common stock repurchased to approximately 119.7 million shares for a total cost of approximately $5.6 billion since the initial authorization in December 2004. The Company has approximately $1.8 billion remaining of authorized share repurchases as of August 31, 2013.

8) Earnings Per Share

The Company presents earnings per share on a basic and diluted basis. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings by the weighted average number of shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings by the weighted average number of shares outstanding, including the dilutive effect of stock-based awards as calculated under the treasury stock method.

Stock-based awards for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 of approximately 1.1 million and 1.3 million, respectively, and for the three and six months ended August 25, 2012 of approximately 1.4 million and 1.2 million, respectively, were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share as the effect would be anti-dilutive.

9) Lines of Credit

At August 31, 2013, the Company maintained two uncommitted lines of credit of $100 million each, with expiration dates of February 28, 2014 and September 2, 2014, respectively. These uncommitted lines of credit are currently and are expected to be used for letters of credit in the ordinary course of business. During the first six months of fiscal 2013, the Company did not have any direct borrowings under the uncommitted lines of credit. Although no assurances can be provided, the Company intends to renew both uncommitted lines of credit before the respective expiration dates.

10) Supplemental Cash Flow Information

The Company paid income taxes of $312.4 million and $312.2 million in the first six months of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively. In addition, the Company had interest payments of approximately $4.6 million and $1.2 million in the first six months of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The Company recorded an accrual for capital expenditures of $21.7 million and $26.1 million as of August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012, respectively.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Overview

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) operates a chain of 1,484 retail stores, as of August 31, 2013, under the names Bed Bath & Beyond (“BBB”), a combination of the names Christmas Tree Shops or andThat! (collectively, “CTS”), Harmon or Harmon Face Values (collectively, “Harmon”), buybuy BABY and World Market, Cost Plus World Market or Cost Plus (collectively, “World Market”). The Company includes Linen Holdings, a provider of a variety of textile products, amenities and other goods to institutional customers in the hospitality, cruise line, food service, healthcare and other industries. (See Note 11 “Acquisitions” in the notes to the unaudited consolidated financial statements for information regarding the acquisitions of World Market and Linen Holdings). Additionally, the Company is a partner in a joint venture which operates three retail stores in Mexico under the name Bed Bath & Beyond.

The Company accounts for its operations as two operating segments: North American Retail and Institutional Sales. The Institutional Sales operating segment, which is comprised of Linen Holdings, does not meet the quantitative thresholds under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and therefore is not a reportable segment.

The Company sells a wide assortment of domestics merchandise and home furnishings. Domestics merchandise includes categories such as bed linens and related items, bath items and kitchen textiles. Home furnishings include categories such as kitchen and tabletop items, fine tabletop, basic housewares, general home furnishings, consumables and certain juvenile products. The Company’s objective is to be a customer’s first choice for products and services in the categories offered, in the markets in which the Company operates.

The Company’s strategy is to achieve this objective through excellent customer service, an extensive breadth, depth and differentiated assortment and introduction of new merchandising offerings, supported by the continuous development and improvement of its infrastructure.

Operating in the highly competitive retail industry, the Company, along with other retail companies, is influenced by a number of factors including, but not limited to, general economic conditions including the housing market, relatively high unemployment and historically high commodity prices; the overall macroeconomic environment and related changes in the retailing environment; consumer preferences and spending habits; unusual weather patterns and natural disasters; competition from existing and potential competitors; evolving technology; and the ability to find suitable locations at acceptable occupancy costs and other terms to support the Company’s expansion program. The Company cannot predict whether, when or the manner in which these factors could affect the Company’s operating results.

For fiscal 2013, the results of operations include Linen Holdings and World Market from the beginning of the fiscal year. For fiscal 2012, the results of operations include Linen Holdings since the date of acquisition on June 1, 2012 and World Market since the date of acquisition on June 29, 2012.

The following represents an overview of the Company’s financial performance for the periods indicated:

●  
For the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company’s net sales were $2.824 billion and $5.436 billion, respectively, an increase of approximately 8.9% and 13.0%, respectively, as compared with the three and six months ended August 25, 2012.

●  
Comparable store sales for the fiscal second quarter of 2013 increased by approximately 3.7% as compared with an increase of approximately 3.5% for the corresponding period last year. For the six months ended August 31, 2013, comparable store sales increased by approximately 3.5% as compared with an increase of approximately 3.3% for the six months ended August 25, 2012.

A store is considered a comparable store when it has been open for twelve full months following its grand opening period (typically four to six weeks). Stores relocated or expanded are excluded from comparable store sales if the change in square footage would cause meaningful disparity in sales over the prior period. In the case of a store to be closed, such store’s sales are not considered comparable once the store closing process has commenced. Linen Holdings is excluded from the comparable store sales calculations and will continue to be excluded on an ongoing basis as long as it does not meet the above definition of comparable store sales. World Market is excluded from the comparable store sales calculations through the end of the fiscal first half of 2013, and will be included beginning with the fiscal third quarter of 2013.

●  
Gross profit for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was $1.113 billion, or 39.4% of net sales, compared with $1.033 billion, or 39.8% of net sales, for the three months ended August 25, 2012. Gross profit for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was $2.146 billion, or 39.5% of net sales, compared with $1.920 billion, or 39.9% of net sales, for the six months ended August 25, 2012.

●  
Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the three months ended August 31, 2013 were $723.7 million, or 25.6% of net sales, compared with $667.5 million, or 25.7% of net sales, for the three months ended August 25, 2012. SG&A for the six months ended August 31, 2013 were $1.434 billion, or 26.4% of net sales, compared with $1.241 billion, or 25.8% of net sales, for the six months ended August 25, 2012.

●  
The effective tax rate for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was 35.8% compared with 38.6% for the three months ended August 25, 2012. The effective tax rate for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was 36.5% compared with 36.4% for the six months ended August 25, 2012. The tax rate included discrete items of an approximate $9.7 million net benefit and $0.7 million net benefit, respectively, for the three months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012 and an approximate $12.3 million net benefit and $15.3 million net benefit, respectively, for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012.
 
●  
For the three months ended August 31, 2013, net earnings per diluted share were $1.16 ($249.3 million), an increase of approximately 18.4%, as compared with net earnings per diluted share of $0.98 ($224.3 million) for the three months ended August 25, 2012. For the six months ended August 31, 2013, net earnings per diluted share were $2.09 ($451.8 million), an increase of approximately 11.8%, as compared with net earnings per diluted share of $1.87 ($431.2 million) for the six months ended August 25, 2012. The increases in net earnings per diluted share for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 are the result of the items described above, as well as the impact of the Company’s repurchases of its common stock.
 
During the six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company continued the integration of the two fiscal 2012 acquisitions as well as advancing initiatives including: enhancing the omni-channel experience for its customers by replacing both back end and customer facing systems; increasing the investment in people and systems to upgrade the Company’s data and analytics capabilities; the building, equipping and staffing of a new information technology data center to enhance the Company’s disaster recovery capabilities and support its overall information technology systems; and retrofitting energy saving equipment in the Company’s stores.

Capital expenditures for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012 were $130.3 million and $158.1 million, respectively. The Company remains committed to making the required investments in its infrastructure to help position the Company for continued growth and success. The Company continues to review and prioritize its capital needs while continuing to make investments, principally for new stores, existing store improvements, information technology enhancements, including omni-channel capabilities, and other projects whose impact is considered important to its future.

During the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company repurchased approximately 3.5 million and 8.5 million shares, respectively, of its common stock at a total cost of approximately $256.8 million and $581.3 million, respectively. During the three and six months ended August 25, 2012, the Company repurchased approximately 3.1 million and 7.8 million shares, respectively, of its common stock at a total cost of approximately $199.3 million and $505.6 million, respectively. Since the end of the fiscal second quarter of 2011, the Company has returned approximately 93% of its cash flows from operations to its shareholders through share repurchase programs.

The Company plans to continue to expand its operations and invest in its infrastructure to reach its long term objectives. For all of fiscal 2013, the Company expects that the total number of new store openings across all concepts will be in the mid-thirties. During the fiscal second quarter of 2013, the Company opened a total of six new stores.

Net sales for the three months ended August 31, 2013 were $2.824 billion, an increase of $230.7 million or approximately 8.9% over net sales of $2.593 billion for the corresponding quarter last year. For the three months ended August 31, 2013, approximately 43% of the increase in net sales was attributable to the inclusion of World Market, approximately 39% of the increase was attributable to an increase in sales of comparable stores based upon the financial reporting calendar (not the comparable store sales calendar) and the remaining 18% of the increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the Company’s new store sales.

For the three months ended August 31, 2013, comparable store sales for 1,173 stores represented $2.503 billion of net sales and for the three months ended August 25, 2012, comparable store sales for 1,136 stores represented $2.375 billion of net sales. The number of stores includes only those which constituted a comparable store for the entire respective fiscal period. The increase in comparable store sales, which excludes World Market and Linen Holdings, for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was approximately 3.7%, as compared with an increase of approximately 3.5% for the comparable period last year. The increase in comparable store sales for the fiscal second quarter of 2013 was due to increases in both the number of transactions and the average transaction amount.

Sales of domestics merchandise and home furnishings for the Company accounted for approximately 40% and 60% of net sales, respectively, for the three months ended August 31, 2013 and approximately 42% and 58% of net sales, respectively, for the three months ended August 25, 2012.

For the six months ended August 31, 2013, net sales were $5.436 billion, an increase of $624.5 million or approximately 13.0% over net sales of $4.811 billion for the corresponding six months last year. For the six months ended August 31, 2013, approximately 59% of the increase in net sales was attributable to the inclusion of World Market and Linen Holdings, approximately 29% of the increase was attributable to an increase in sales of comparable stores based upon the financial reporting calendar (not the comparable store sales calendar) and the remaining 12% of the increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the Company’s new store sales.

For the six months ended August 31, 2013, comparable store sales for 1,167 stores represented $4.792 billion of net sales and for the six months ended August 25, 2012, comparable store sales for 1,127 stores represented $4.523 billion of net sales. The number of stores includes only those which constituted a comparable store for the entire respective fiscal period. The increase in comparable store sales, which excludes World Market and Linen Holdings, for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was approximately 3.5%, as compared with an increase of approximately 3.3% for the comparable period last year. The increase in comparable store sales for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was due to increases in both the number of transactions and the average transaction amount.

Sales of domestics merchandise and home furnishings for the Company accounted for approximately 38% and 62% of net sales, respectively, for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and approximately 41% and 59% of net sales, respectively, for the six months ended August 25, 2012.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was $1.113 billion, or 39.4% of net sales, compared with $1.033 billion, or 39.8% of net sales, for the three months ended August 25, 2012. Gross profit for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was $2.146 billion, or 39.5% of net sales, compared with $1.920 billion, or 39.9% of net sales, for the six months ended August 25, 2012. These decreases in the gross profit margin as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 were primarily attributed to an increase in coupons, due to increases in both the redemptions and the average coupon amount, and a shift in the mix of merchandise sold to lower margin categories.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

SG&A for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was $723.7 million, or 25.6% of net sales, compared with $667.5 million, or 25.7% of net sales, for the three months ended August 25, 2012. The decrease in SG&A as a percentage of net sales for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was primarily due to relative decreases in professional fees incurred as a result of the prior year acquisitions, and store expenses, partially offset by an increase in advertising expenses.   As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was higher due to the inclusion of the financial results of the acquisition for the period prior to its one year anniversary in the fiscal second quarter of 2013.

SG&A for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was $1.434 billion, or 26.4% of net sales, compared with $1.241 billion, or 25.8% of net sales, for the six months ended August 25, 2012. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of net sales for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was primarily due to relative increases in payroll and payroll-related items (including salaries and workers’ compensation insurance) and advertising expenses.  As a percentage of net sales, these expense items were higher due to the inclusion of the financial results of the acquisitions for the period prior to each of their one year anniversary in the first half of fiscal 2013.

Operating Profit

Operating profit for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was $389.8 million, or 13.8% of net sales, compared with $365.1 million, or 14.1% of net sales, during the comparable period last year. For the six months ended August 31, 2013, operating profit was $712.9 million, or 13.1% of net sales, compared with $678.5 million, or 14.1% of net sales, during the comparable period last year. The change in operating profit as a percentage of net sales was the result of the changes in gross profit margin and SG&A as a percentage of net sales described above.

Interest (Expense) Income, net

Interest expense for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 was $1.7 million and $1.9 million, respectively, compared with interest income of $0.3 million and interest expense of $0.8 million for the three and six months ended August 25, 2012. Interest expense for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 includes approximately $2.2 million and $4.4 million, respectively, of net interest expense resulting substantially from the inclusion of sale/leaseback obligations relating to the Company’s distribution facilities.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was 35.8% compared with 38.6% for the three months ended August 25, 2012. The tax rate for the three months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012 included net benefits of approximately $9.7 million, primarily due to the recognition of favorable discrete state tax items and $0.7 million, respectively.

The effective tax rate for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was 36.5% compared with 36.4% for the six months ended August 25, 2012. The tax rate for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and August 25, 2012 included net benefits of approximately $12.3 million and $15.3 million, respectively, primarily due to the recognition of favorable discrete state tax items.

The Company expects continued volatility in the effective tax rate from quarter to quarter because the Company is required each quarter to determine whether new information changes the assessment of both the probability that a tax position will effectively be sustained and the appropriateness of the amount of recognized benefit.

Net Earnings

As a result of the factors described above, net earnings for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 were $249.3 million and $451.8 million, respectively, compared with $224.3 million and $431.2 million for the corresponding periods in fiscal 2012.

Expansion Program

The Company is engaged in an ongoing expansion program involving the opening of new stores in both new and existing markets, the expansion or relocation of existing stores and the continuous review of strategic acquisitions.

As a result of this program, the Company operated 1,009 BBB stores, 266 World Market stores, 86 buybuy BABY stores, 74 CTS stores and 49 Harmon stores at the end of the fiscal second quarter of 2013, compared with 1,000 BBB stores, 258 World Market stores, 71 buybuy BABY stores, 73 CTS stores and 47 Harmon stores at the end of the corresponding quarter last year. At August 31, 2013, Company-wide total store square footage, including the 266 World Market stores and net of openings and closings for all concepts, was approximately 42.3 million square feet. Additionally, the Company is a partner in a joint venture which operates three retail stores in Mexico under the name Bed Bath & Beyond.

The Company plans to continue to expand its operations and invest in its infrastructure to reach its long term objectives. During the fiscal second quarter of 2013, the Company opened a total of six new stores. For all of fiscal 2013, the Company expects that the total number of new store openings across all concepts will be in the mid-thirties. The continued growth of the Company is dependent, in part, upon the Company’s ability to execute its expansion program successfully.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company has been able to finance its operations, including its expansion program, entirely through internally generated funds. For fiscal 2013, the Company believes that it can continue to finance its operations, including its expansion program, share repurchase program and planned capital expenditures entirely through existing and internally generated funds. The Company periodically reviews its alternatives with respect to optimizing its capital structure. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2013, principally for new stores, existing store improvements, information technology enhancements, including omni-channel capabilities, and other projects are planned to be approximately $350 million, subject to the timing and composition of the projects. Some of the initiatives included in capital expenditures for fiscal 2013 are: enhancing the omni-channel experience for its customers through replacing both back end and customer facing systems, upgrading the Company’s mobile sites and applications, enhancing network communications in the stores and developing future point of sale improvements; building, equipping and staffing a new information technology data center to enhance disaster recovery capabilities and to support the Company’s ongoing technology initiatives; and retrofitting energy saving equipment in the Company’s stores.

Fiscal 2013 compared to Fiscal 2012

Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was $495.6 million, compared with $472.1 million in the corresponding period in fiscal 2012. Year over year, the Company experienced an increase in net earnings, as adjusted for non-cash expenses (primarily depreciation), which was partially offset by an increase in cash used by the net components of working capital (primarily other current assets and accrued expenses and other current liabilities, partially offset by merchandise inventories).

Retail inventory at cost per square foot was $60.36 as of August 31, 2013, compared to $58.20 as of August 25, 2012.

Net cash used in investing activities for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was $135.8 million, compared with $232.7 million in the corresponding period of fiscal 2012. For the six months ended August 31, 2013, net cash used in investing activities was due to $130.3 million of capital expenditures and $5.5 million of purchases of investment securities, net of redemptions. For the six months ended August 25, 2012, net cash used in investing activities was due to payments of $643.3 million related to the World Market and Linen Holdings acquisitions, $158.1 million of capital expenditures and $40.0 million for the acquisition of trademarks, partially offset by redemptions of $608.6 million of investment securities, net of purchases.
 
-18-

 
Net cash used in financing activities for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was $541.4 million, compared with $498.1 million in the corresponding period of fiscal 2012. The increase in net cash used was primarily due to an increase in common stock repurchases of $75.7 million, partially offset by a $25.5 million payment in the prior year for a credit facility assumed in acquisition and a $7.1 million increase in cash proceeds from the exercise of stock options.

Auction Rate Securities

As of August 31, 2013, the Company held approximately $47.5 million of net investments in auction rate securities. Beginning in 2008, the auction process for the Company’s auction rate securities failed and continues to fail. These failed auctions result in a lack of liquidity in the securities but do not affect the underlying collateral of the securities. All of these investments carry triple-A credit ratings from one or more of the major credit rating agencies. As of August 31, 2013, these securities had a temporary valuation adjustment of approximately $3.5 million to reflect their current lack of liquidity. Since this valuation adjustment is deemed to be temporary, it was recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of a related tax benefit, and did not affect the Company’s net earnings for the six months ended August 31, 2013. The Company will continue to monitor the market for these securities and will expense any permanent changes to the value of the remaining securities, if any, as they occur.

The Company does not anticipate that any continuing lack of liquidity in its auction rate securities will affect its ability to finance its operations, including its expansion program, share repurchase program, and planned capital expenditures. The Company continues to monitor efforts by the financial markets to find alternative means for restoring the liquidity of these investments. These investments will remain primarily classified as non-current assets until the Company has better visibility as to when their liquidity will be restored. The classification and valuation of these securities will continue to be reviewed quarterly.

Seasonality

The Company’s sales exhibit seasonality with sales levels generally higher in the calendar months of August, November and December, and generally lower in February.

The implied volatility represents the implied volatility of the Company's call options, which are actively traded on multiple exchanges, had remaining maturities in excess of twelve months, had market prices close to the exercise prices of the employee stock options and were measured on the stock option grant date. Based on the U.S. Treasury constant maturity interest rate whose term is consistent with the expected life of the stock options. 383336000 564971000 455579000 449933000 2591247000 2466214000 434299000 386367000 3864461000 3867485000 81552000 77325000 1477336000 1466667000 486279000 483518000 398345000 384957000 6307973000 6279952000 1033709000 913365000 389689000 393094000 264281000 251481000 18616000 77270000 1706295000 1635210000 493199000 484868000 81767000 80144000 2281261000 2200222000 0 0 3345000 3327000 1621480000 1540451000 8025406000 7573612000 5614601000 5033340000 -8918000 -4320000 4026712000 4079730000 6307973000 6279952000 0.01 0.01 1000000 1000000 0 0 0 0 0.01 0.01 900000000 900000000 334474000 332696000 214745000 221489000 119729000 111207000 2823672000 2593015000 5435812000 4811307000 1710188000 1560346000 3289357000 2891439000 1113484000 1032669000 2146455000 1919868000 723718000 667532000 1433588000 1241333000 389766000 365137000 712867000 678535000 -1675000 269000 -1900000 -787000 388091000 365406000 710967000 677748000 138787000 141076000 259173000 246582000 249304000 224330000 451794000 431166000 1.18 0.99 2.11 1.89 1.16 0.98 2.09 1.87 212134000 226313000 213792000 227699000 214697000 229308000 216516000 230995000 -666000 21000 -888000 419000 -196000 -425000 -363000 -448000 -2440000 4002000 -4073000 979000 -2910000 4448000 -4598000 1846000 246394000 228778000 447196000 433012000 105160000 90486000 28439000 23805000 -12036000 -12716000 -13722000 -16862000 666000 517000 125033000 163100000 5696000 2305000 46977000 11478000 3624000 10718000 135589000 143582000 -1886000 13074000 12800000 18865000 -57031000 -65128000 4412000 8537000 495595000 472123000 652342000 281130000 646875000 881249000 8525000 130322000 158064000 643269000 40000000 -135789000 -232689000 36230000 29174000 3590000 3776000 25511000 581261000 505574000 -541441000 -498135000 -181635000 -258701000 1003166000 744465000 BED BATH & BEYOND INC 10-Q --03-01 214745499 false 0000886158 Yes No Large Accelerated Filer Yes 2013 Q2 2013-08-31 <div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="FONT-STYLE: italic; DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-WEIGHT: bold">1) Basis of Presentation</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared without audit.

In determining fair value, the Company uses various valuation approaches, including quoted market prices and discounted cash flows. The hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from independent sources. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect a company&#8217;s judgment concerning the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available under the circumstances. The fair value hierarchy is broken down into three levels based on the reliability of inputs as follows:</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt"> <font id="TAB2" style="LETTER-SPACING: 9pt; COLOR: black">&#160;</font><font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">&#8226; Level 1 &#8211; Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments that the Company is able to access. Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these products does not entail a significant degree of judgment.</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt"> <font id="TAB2-1" style="LETTER-SPACING: 9pt; COLOR: black">&#160;</font><font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">&#8226; Level 2 &#8211; Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for instruments that are similar, or quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar instruments, and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets.</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt"> <font id="TAB2-3" style="LETTER-SPACING: 9pt; COLOR: black">&#160;</font><font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">&#8226; Level 3 &#8211; Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">As of August 31, 2013, the Company&#8217;s financial assets utilizing Level 1 inputs include long term investment securities traded on active securities exchanges. The Company did not have any financial assets utilizing Level 2 inputs. Financial assets utilizing Level 3 inputs included long term investments in auction rate securities consisting of preferred shares of closed end municipal bond funds (See &#8220;Investment Securities,&#8221; Note 4).&#160;</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. Accordingly, the Company&#8217;s degree of judgment exercised in determining fair value is greatest for instruments categorized in Level 3. In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, an asset or liability must be classified in its entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the measurement of fair value.&#160;</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Valuation techniques used by the Company must be consistent with at least one of the three possible approaches: the market approach, income approach and/or cost approach. The Company&#8217;s Level 1 valuations are based on the market approach and consist primarily of quoted prices for identical items on active securities exchanges. The Company&#8217;s Level 3 valuations of auction rate securities, which had temporary valuation adjustments of approximately $3.5 million and $2.0 million as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, respectively, are based on the income approach, specifically, discounted cash flow analyses which utilize significant inputs based on the Company&#8217;s estimates and assumptions. As of August 31, 2013, the inputs used in the Company&#8217;s discounted cash flow analysis included current coupon rates ranging from 0.10% to 0.15%, an estimated redemption period of 5 years and a discount rate of 1.54%. The discount rate was based on market rates for risk-free tax-exempt securities, as adjusted for a risk premium to reflect the lack of liquidity of these investments. Assuming a higher discount rate, a longer estimated redemption period and lower coupon rates would result in a lower fair market value. Conversely, assuming a lower discount rate, a shorter estimated redemption period and higher coupon rates would result in a higher fair market value.</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block;

Since these valuation adjustments are deemed to be temporary, they are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of a related tax benefit, and did not affect the Company&#8217;s net earnings. These securities at par are invested in preferred shares of closed end municipal bond funds, which are required, pursuant to the Investment Company Act of 1940, to maintain minimum asset coverage ratios of 200%. All of these available-for-sale investments carried triple-A credit ratings from one or more of the major credit rating agencies as of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, and none of them are mortgage-backed debt obligations. As of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, the Company&#8217;s available-for-sale investments have been in a continuous unrealized loss position for 12 months or more, however, the Company believes that the unrealized losses are temporary and reflect the investments&#8217; current lack of liquidity. Due to their lack of liquidity, the Company classified approximately $47.5 million and $49.0 million of these investments as long term investment securities at August 31, 2013 and March&#160;2, 2013, respectively.</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="FONT-STYLE: italic; DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">U.S. Treasury Securities</font> </div><br/><div style="TEXT-INDENT: 0pt; DISPLAY: block; MARGIN-LEFT: 0pt; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0pt" align="justify"> <font style="DISPLAY: inline; FONT-FAMILY: Times New Roman; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">As of August 31, 2013 and March 2, 2013, the Company&#8217;s short term held-to-maturity securities included approximately $455.6 million and approximately $449.9 million, respectively, of U.S. Treasury Bills with remaining maturities of less than one year.

Vesting of restricted stock awarded to certain of the Company&#8217;s executives is dependent on the Company&#8217;s achievement of a performance-based test for the fiscal year of grant and, assuming achievement of the performance-based test, time vesting, subject, in general, to the executive remaining in the Company&#8217;s employ on specified vesting dates.
