Sally Beauty (NYSE:SBH) Jumps on Q1 Beat

Story Highlights

Sally Beauty delivered a resilient performance for the first quarter and reaffirmed its financial outlook.

Sally Beauty (NYSE:SBH) shares jumped nearly 7% today after the beauty products provider delivered a better-than-expected set of numbers for the first quarter. Despite a year-over-year decline of 2.7%, revenue of $931 million outpaced expectations by $1.51 million. Similarly, EPS of $0.39 exceeded estimates by $0.02.

During the quarter, consolidated comparable sales decreased by 0.8% due to lower traffic and inflationary challenges. Further, an unfavorable sales mix shift and fixed cost absorption impacted the company’s adjusted gross margin by 60 basis points.

Looking ahead to Fiscal Year 2024, Sally Beauty expects flat net sales and comparable sales growth as gains from the company’s strategic initiatives are seen being offset by pressure on consumer spending. Furthermore, operating cash flow for the year is anticipated to be at least $260 million.
