1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLWS), today reported results for its fiscal 2022 third quarter ended March 27, 2022.

Chris McCann, CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc., said, “Our results for the fiscal third quarter were below our expectations. A solid Valentine’s Day holiday for our 1-800-Flowers brand was offset by overall slower consumer demand for everyday gifting occasions throughout the period. These results reflected a continuation, and in some areas an escalation, of the macro-economic cost headwinds that we discussed back in January at the start of the quarter, combined with slower consumer demand reflecting growing consumer concerns with rapidly rising inflation and geopolitical unrest.

“While total revenues for the quarter were essentially flat with the prior year period, they were up more than 68 percent compared with our fiscal 2020 third quarter. Over the past three years we have essentially doubled our revenues to more than $2 billion and we anticipate driving further growth in the current fiscal fourth quarter and for the full year by leveraging our large customer file, the strong growth we continue to see in our Celebrations Passport loyalty program – which has grown more than 40 percent since the beginning of the current fiscal year – as well as initiatives in new innovative products and partnerships,” he said.

In terms of bottom-line results, McCann said that while the Company anticipates facing continued cost headwinds in the near term, “Our strong balance sheet enables us to invest in our operating platform, including investments to automate warehouse and distribution facilities, optimize our outbound shipping operations and build and bring in inventory early. Over the longer term, we anticipate these initiatives will enable us to improve our gross margins and drive enhanced bottom-line performance.”

McCann added, “Looking ahead, the current macroeconomy is highly unpredictable, with rising inflation and other factors impacting both costs and consumer demand. However, it is important to note that we have faced challenging macro market conditions in the past and, because of the strength of our unique business platform, combined with our talented and experienced team across the enterprise, we have emerged a bigger, better, and stronger company, and we are confident that we will continue to grow our company and build shareholder value over the long term.”
