(1)Comprised of net sales at stores in operation for at least 14 full months, including remodeled and relocated stores, as well as net sales for the Company's e-commerce site.

(2)Adjusted to exclude the loss on the early extinguishment of debt primarily from the debt refinancing completed in conjunction with the initial public offering in July 2007. See the attached reconciliation of non-GAAP measures.

hhgregg, Inc. ("hhgregg" or "the Company") today reported net income of $13.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009, or diluted net income per share of $0.42, compared with net income of $10.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period. Net income for the twelve months ended March 31, 2009 was $36.5 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $21.4 million, or $0.67 per diluted share for the twelve months ended March 31, 2008. Excluding the impact of the loss from the early extinguishment of debt, net income for the twelve months ended March 31, 2008 was $34.6 million, or $1.07 per diluted share. The improvement in year-to-date earnings, excluding the loss on the early extinguishment of debt, reflects a 20 basis point improvement in gross profit margins, and a 34 basis point improvement in interest expense due to debt reduction compared to the prior year period. These gains were partially offset by a comparable stores sales decline of 8.3% coupled with the start-up investments in distribution and management infrastructure to support the new store growth in Florida.

Dennis May, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, commented, "We are pleased with our fourth quarter performance and our ability to adjust our business execution around what proved to be both a challenging and opportunistic quarter. While the weak economic environment continued to weigh on consumer demand and spending levels, the closure of a major consumer electronics chain also led to some unique buying opportunities and market share increases for the Company. By tightly managing expenses, inventory and working capital, we were able to deliver strong earnings growth that was driven by across-the-board improvements in sales, margins and expense leverage. In addition, our initiatives to drive cash flow allowed us to internally fund our fiscal 2009 store growth of 19% and take advantage of several advantageous buying opportunities in the marketplace. As we look ahead, we continue to plan the business around a difficult environment. While we believe our strong balance sheet, compelling market position, unique operating model and unwavering commitment to customers positions us well to continue to gain market share and drive shareholder value, the volatility in the business continues to limit our visibility and forces us to maintain a cautious outlook."

Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2009 increased 12.5% compared to the comparable prior year period to $364.9 million. Net sales for the twelve months ended March 31, 2009 increased 11.1% over the prior year to $1.4 billion. The increase in sales for the fourth quarter and the twelve months ended March 31, 2009 was primarily attributable to the net addition of 19 stores during the past 12 months, partially offset by a 6.5% and an 8.3% decrease in comparable store sales, respectively.

Net sales mix and comparable store sales percentage changes by product category for the three and twelve months ended respectively March 31, 2009 and 2008 were as follows:

(1)Primarily consists of audio, personal electronics, mattresses, computer notebooks and furniture and accessories.

hhgregg's 6.5% and 8.3% comparable store sales decreases for the three and twelve months ended March 31, 2009, respectively, primarily reflect continued weakness in the appliance category. The double digit comparable stores sales decline for the appliance category for both the quarter and year ended March 31, 2009, were due to decreased sales in our entry-level and lower mid-price point products. For the quarter, the increase in comparable store sales for the video category was due to continued strong demand in both LCD and Plasma products, offset by a decrease in average selling price of the video products. For the twelve month period, the impact of falling average selling prices more then offset the increase in units within the video category. For the quarter, the comparable store sales increase in the other category was due to double digit comparable store sales increase in the computer category offset by double digit comparable store sales decreases in the mattress category. For the twelve month period, the decrease in the other category was due to double digit decreases in mattresses and personal electronics offset by an increase in computer comparable store sales.

Gross profit margin, expressed as gross profit as a percentage of sales, increased 21 basis points for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 and increased 20 basis points for the twelve months ended March 31, 2009, compared with the respective prior year periods. The appliance gross profit margins exceeded the Company average as a percentage of sales during the quarter and the year-to-date period, but the appliance category accounted for approximately six and four percentage points less of the consolidated net sales for the three months and twelve month periods, respectively, relative to the comparable prior year periods, thereby negatively impacting the consolidated gross profit margin rate. Buying opportunities in the video category, attributable in large part to supply imbalances, had a positive impact on the consolidated gross profit margin rate during the fourth quarter as well as a modest positive impact for the year compared with the respective prior year periods. Small shifts in sales mix within the other product category had a modest negative impact on the consolidated gross profit margins during the fourth quarter and a modest positive impact on fiscal 2009 when compared with the respective prior year periods.

SG&A, as a percentage of net sales, decreased 61 basis points for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and increased 27 basis points for the twelve months ended March 31, 2009, compared with the respective prior year periods. Through various cost savings initiatives, as well as the overall variable structure of the Company's payroll, we leveraged SG&A as a percentage of sales despite the current quarter's comparable sales decline. However, while these items resulted in a decrease in overall SG&A as a percentage of sales during the current quarter, the impact of the Florida growth investments in the first half of the year, totaling approximately 40 basis points, more than offset the improvements noted above for the twelve month period.

Net advertising expense, as a percentage of sales, decreased 53 basis points during the fourth quarter and increased 20 basis points during the twelve months ended March 31, 2009 when compared with the respective comparable prior year periods. These results were achieved despite our comparable store sales decline during both periods as well as the significant advertising spend associated with the launch of new markets in Florida particularly during the first half of the fiscal year. During the fourth fiscal quarter, we continued to see favorable advertising rates.

Other expense, as a percentage of sales, decreased 29 basis points and 208 basis points for the three and twelve months ended March 31, 2009, respectively. Net interest expense decreased 22 basis points and 33 basis points for the three and twelve month periods, respectively, due to significantly lower debt levels in fiscal 2009 as compared to the prior year comparative period. The remainder of the decrease for the twelve months ended March 31, 2009 relates to the loss on early extinguishment of debt recorded in the prior year.

Income tax expense, as a percentage of sales, increased 85 and 72 basis points during the fourth quarter and twelve months ended March 31, 2009 respectively when compared with the respective comparable prior year periods. These increases were primarily the result of an increase in income before income taxes as compared to the comparable prior year periods. The increases in our effective tax rates for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended March 31, 2009 from 39.9% and 40.2%, respectively, in fiscal 2008 to 43.7% and 41.7%, respectively, in fiscal 2009 were primarily the result of a reduction in our deferred tax assets due to state income tax rates and apportionment adjustments.

Fiscal Year 2010 Guidance

Continued economic uncertainty, volatile customer traffic patterns and challenging industry trends have made it difficult to project consumer demand. As such, the Company has prudently planned for soft consumer demand for fiscal year 2010, while continuing to focus on controllable forms of cash flow generation such as inventory control, working capital management and various cost savings initiatives to maximize operating efficiencies.

Based on projected net sales growth of 3% to 7% for the fiscal year, the Company would expect net income per diluted share to range between $0.85 to $1.00. This would imply an expectation of a comparable store sales decline of 7% to 12% for fiscal 2010. However, due to difficult year-over-year comparisons during the first half of the fiscal year, the higher seasonal mix of appliance sales, a timing shift of the Easter holiday and the lapping of the 2008 stimulus checks, this guidance includes expectations that comparable stores sales for the first fiscal quarter will likely be below this range. The Company expects comparable store sales and earnings pressure to lessen as the year progresses.

Assumed in the Company's estimates for fiscal 2010 is the opening of 16 to 18 new stores, with the majority of the new stores scheduled to be opened prior to the holiday selling season. Capital expenditures, net of sale and leaseback proceeds, are expected to range between $30 million and $35 million for the fiscal year. The Company is beginning to see an increase in the availability of quality locations at lower lease rates in new and existing markets. This presents a significant opportunity for the Company to accelerate its store openings next year. The Company plans to prudently evaluate these opportunities.

Jerry Throgmartin, Chairman and CEO commented, "While the recent environment is volatile and difficult to forecast, we see tremendous opportunities in the real estate and labor markets and will diligently investigate these growth opportunities. With our strong balance sheet, compelling market position and operating model that flexes with its variable cost structure, we are in an advantageous position to potentially accelerate our growth and market share gains at what could prove to be a very opportunistic time. We will, however, continue to focus on execution and providing the consumer with a superior purchase experience."
