FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and are subject to the safe harbor created thereby under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical or current fact included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “plan,” “intend,” “believe,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “can have,” “likely” and other words and terms of similar meaning (including their negative counterparts or other various or comparable terminology). For example, all statements we make relating to our estimated and projected costs, expenditures, cash flows, growth rates and financial results, our plans and objectives for future operations, growth or initiatives, strategies or the expected outcome or impact of pending or threatened litigation are forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those that we expected, including:
the adverse impact of rulemaking changes implemented by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on our income streams, profitability and results of operations;
changes in consumer spending and general economic conditions;
the negative impact on interest expense as a result of rising interest rates;
inflationary pressures with respect to labor and raw materials and global supply chain constraints that could increase our expenses;
our ability to identify and respond to new and changing product trends, customer preferences and other related factors;
our dependence on a strong brand image;
increased competition from other brands and retailers;
our reliance on third parties to drive traffic to our website;
the success of the shopping centers in which our stores are located;
our ability to adapt to consumer shopping preferences and develop and maintain a relevant and reliable omni-channel experience for our customers;
our dependence upon independent third parties for the manufacture of all of our merchandise;
availability constraints and price volatility in the raw materials used to manufacture our products;
interruptions of the flow of our merchandise from international manufacturers causing disruptions in our supply chain;
our sourcing a significant amount of our products from China;
shortages of inventory, delayed shipments to our e-Commerce customers and harm to our reputation due to difficulties or shut-down of our distribution facility;
our reliance upon independent third-party transportation providers for substantially all of our product shipments;
our growth strategy;
our failure to attract and retain employees that reflect our brand image, embody our culture and possess the appropriate skill set;
damage to our reputation arising from our use of social media, email and text messages;
our reliance on third-parties for the provision of certain services, including real estate management;
our dependence upon key members of our executive management team;
our reliance on information systems;
system security risk issues that could disrupt our internal operations or information technology services;
unauthorized disclosure of sensitive or confidential information, whether through a breach of our computer system, third-party computer systems we rely on, or otherwise;
3


our failure to comply with federal and state laws and regulations and industry standards relating to privacy, data protection, advertising and consumer protection;
payment-related risks that could increase our operating costs or subject us to potential liability;
claims made against us resulting in litigation;
changes in laws and regulations applicable to our business;
regulatory actions or recalls arising from issues with product safety;
our inability to protect our trademarks or other intellectual property rights;
our substantial indebtedness and lease obligations;
restrictions imposed by our indebtedness on our current and future operations;
changes in tax laws or regulations or in our operations that may impact our effective tax rate;
the possibility that we may recognize impairments of long-lived assets;
our failure to maintain adequate internal control over financial reporting; and
the threat of war, terrorism or other catastrophes that could negatively impact our business.
The outcome of the events described in any of our forward-looking statements are also subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors described in the sections entitled "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on April 2, 2024 and in our other filings with the SEC and public communications. You should evaluate all forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q in the context of these risks and uncertainties.
We caution you that the important factors referenced above may not include all of the factors that are important to you. In addition, we cannot assure you that we will realize the results or developments we expect or anticipate or, even if substantially realized, that they will result in the outcomes or affect us or our operations in the way we expect. The forward-looking statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are made only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise except to the extent required by law. Our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures or investments.
Investors and others should note that we may announce material information to our investors using our investor relations website (https://investors.torrid.com), SEC filings, press releases, public conference calls and webcasts. We use these channels, as well as social media, to communicate with our investors and the public about our company, our business and other issues. It is possible that the information that we post on social media could be deemed to be material information. We therefore encourage investors to visit these websites from time to time.

Fiscal Year
Our fiscal year ends on the Saturday nearest to January 31 and each fiscal year is generally comprised of four 13-week quarters (although in years with 53 weeks, the fourth quarter is comprised of 14 weeks). Fiscal year 2024 is a 52-week year and fiscal year 2023 was a 53-week year. Fiscal years are identified according to the calendar year in which they begin. For example, references to “fiscal year 2024” or similar references refer to the fiscal year ending February 1, 2025. References to the first quarter of fiscal years 2024 and 2023 and to the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, respectively, refer to the 13-week periods then ended.
Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial information. Accordingly, the interim financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented have been included. Operating results for the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future interim periods, the fiscal year ending February 1, 2025, or for any future fiscal year.
The condensed consolidated balance sheet information at February 3, 2024 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date, but does not include all of the disclosures required by GAAP. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related footnotes should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 3, 2024. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include Torrid and those of our wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Description of Business
We are a direct-to-consumer brand of apparel, intimates and accessories in North America aimed at fashionable women who are curvy and wear sizes 10 to 30. We generate revenues primarily through our e-Commerce platform www.torrid.com and our stores in the United States of America, Puerto Rico and Canada.
Segment Reporting
We have determined that we have one reportable segment, which includes the operation of our e-Commerce platform and stores. The single segment was identified based on how the Chief Operating Decision Maker, who we have determined to be our Chief Executive Officer, manages and evaluates performance and allocates resources. Net sales related to our operations in Canada and Puerto Rico during the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023 were not material, and therefore are not reported separately from domestic net sales.

Store Pre-Opening Costs
Costs incurred in connection with the opening of new stores, store remodels or relocations are expensed as incurred in selling, general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. We incurred $0.4 million and $0.3 million of pre-opening costs during the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, respectively.
Note 2. Accounting Standards
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards during the Three-Month Period Ended May 4, 2024
We did not adopt any new accounting standards during the three-month period ended May 4, 2024.
Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures (“ASU 2023-07”). ASU 2023-07 will affect reportable segment disclosure requirements, primarily by requiring enhanced disclosures about significant segment expenses on an interim and annual basis. ASU 2023-07 will be effective for us on February 1, 2025, with the option to early adopt at any time prior to the effective date and will require adoption on a retrospective basis. We are currently evaluating the impact of the standard on our financial statements and disclosures.
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures (“ASU 2023-09”). The ASU includes amendments requiring enhanced income tax disclosures, primarily related to standardization and disaggregation of rate reconciliation categories and income taxes paid by jurisdiction. ASU 2023-09 will be effective for us on February 1, 2025, with the option to early adopt at any time prior to the effective date and will require adoption on either a prospective or retrospective basis. We are currently evaluating the impact of the standard on our financial statements and disclosures.
Note 3. Inventory
Our inventory is comprised solely of finished goods and is valued at the lower of moving average cost or net realizable value. We make certain assumptions regarding net realizable value in order to assess whether our inventory is recorded properly at the lower of cost or net realizable value. These assumptions are based on historical average selling price experience, current selling price information and estimated future selling price information. Physical inventory counts are conducted at least once during the year to determine actual inventory on hand and shrinkage. We accrue our estimated inventory shrinkage in our stores for the period between the last physical count and current balance sheet date.

Note 6. Implementation Costs Incurred in Cloud Computing Arrangements that are Service Contracts
Our cloud computing arrangements that are service contracts primarily consist of arrangements with third party vendors for our internal use of their software applications that they host. We defer implementation costs incurred in relation to such arrangements, including costs for software application coding, configuration, integration and customization, while associated process reengineering, training, maintenance and data conversion costs are expensed. Subsequent implementation costs are deferred only to the extent that they constitute major enhancements. The short-term portion of deferred implementation costs are included in prepaid expenses and other current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets, while the long-term portion of deferred implementation costs are included in deposits and other noncurrent assets. Amortized implementation costs incurred in cloud computing arrangements that are service contracts are recognized in selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.

Note 9. Revenue Recognition
We recognize revenue when our performance obligations under the terms of a contract or an implied arrangement with a customer are satisfied, which is when the merchandise is transferred to the customer and the customer obtains control of it. The amount of revenue we recognize reflects the total consideration we expect to receive for the merchandise, which is the transaction price.
Our revenue, disaggregated by product category, consists of the following (in thousands):
Three Months Ended
May 4, 2024April 29, 2023
Apparel$252,630 $258,913 
Non-apparel20,286 26,848 
Other6,855 8,093 
Total net sales$279,771 $293,854 
Amounts within Apparel include revenues earned from the sale of tops, bottoms, dresses, intimates, sleep wear, swim wear and outerwear. Amounts within Non-apparel include revenues earned from the sale of accessories, footwear and beauty. Amounts within Other primarily represent PLCC Funds received.
We have an agreement with a third party, which is amended from time to time, to provide customers with private label credit cards (“Credit Card Agreement”). Each private label credit card (“PLCC”) bears the logo of the Torrid brand and can only be used at our store locations and on www.torrid.com. A third-party financing company is the sole owner of the accounts issued under the PLCC program and absorbs the losses associated with non-payment by the PLCC holders and a portion of any fraudulent usage of the accounts. Pursuant to the Credit Card Agreement, we receive royalties, profit-sharing and marketing and promotional funds from the third-party financing company based on usage of the PLCCs. These PLCC Funds are recorded as a component of net sales in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
We recognize a contract liability when we receive consideration from a customer before our performance obligations under the terms of a contract or an implied arrangement with the customer are satisfied. During the three-month period ended May 4, 2024, we recognized revenue of approximately $7.5 million and $3.0 million related to our accrued loyalty program and gift cards, respectively, that existed at the beginning of fiscal year 2024. During the three-month period ended April 29, 2023, we recognized revenue of approximately $6.8 million and $3.2 million related to our accrued loyalty program and gift cards, respectively, that existed at the beginning of fiscal year 2023.
Note 10. Loyalty Program
We operate our loyalty program, Torrid Rewards, in all our stores and on www.torrid.com. Under this program, customers accumulate points based on purchase activity and qualifying non-purchase activity. Upon reaching a certain point level, customers can earn awards that may only be redeemed for merchandise. Unredeemed points typically expire after 13 months without additional purchase and qualifying non-purchase activity and unredeemed awards typically expire 45 days after issuance. We use historical redemption rates to estimate the value of future award redemptions and we recognize the estimated value of these future awards as a reduction of revenue in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income in the period the points are earned by the customer. As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 and as of the end of fiscal year 2023, we had $11.9 million and $12.5 million, respectively, in deferred revenue related to our loyalty program included in accrued and other current liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, we recorded $0.6 million and $0.7 million, respectively, as a benefit to net sales. Actual results may differ from our estimates, resulting in changes to net sales.

In March 2020 and January 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848)—Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (“ASU 2020-04”) and 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope (“ASU 2021-01”), respectively. ASU 2020-04 and ASU 2021-01 include practical expedients which provide entities the option to account for qualifying amendments as if the modification was not substantial in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 470, Debt. We elected this option, accordingly, the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
The Term Loan Credit Agreement provides for term loans in an initial aggregate amount of $350.0 million, which is recorded net of an original issue discount (“OID”) of $3.5 million and has a maturity date of June 14, 2028. In connection with the Term Loan Credit Agreement, we paid financing costs of approximately $6.0 million.
The elected interest rate on May 4, 2024 was approximately 11%.
As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, we were compliant with our debt covenants under the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement.
As of May 4, 2024, the fair value of the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement was approximately $268.0 million. As of the end of fiscal year 2023, the fair value of the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement was approximately $259.4 million. The fair value of the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement is determined using current applicable rates for similar instruments as of the balance sheet date, a Level 2 measurement (as defined in “Note 18—Fair Value Measurements”).
15


As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, total borrowings, net of OID and financing costs, of $300.7 million remain outstanding under the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement. During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, we recognized $8.7 million and $8.6 million, respectively, of interest expense related to the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement. During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, we recognized $0.3 million and $0.3 million, respectively, of OID and financing costs related to the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement. The OID and financing costs are amortized over the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement’s seven-year term and are reflected as a direct deduction of the face amount of the term loan in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. We recognize interest payments, together with amortization of the OID and financing costs, in interest expense in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
Senior Secured Asset-Based Revolving Credit Facility
In May 2015, we entered into a credit agreement for a senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility with Bank of America, N.A., which was subsequently amended in October 2017, June 2019, September 2019 and June 2021 (“ABL Facility”). Under the ABL Facility, as amended, the aggregate commitments available are $150.0 million (subject to a borrowing base), and we have the right to request additional commitments up to $50 million plus the aggregate principal amount of any permanent principal reductions we may take (subject to customary conditions precedent). The principal amount of the outstanding loans are due and payable on June 14, 2026. On April 21, 2023, we entered into a fourth amendment to the ABL Facility (the “4th Amendment”). The 4th Amendment replaced the LIBOR interest rate benchmark with the SOFR benchmark. All other material terms of the ABL Facility, as amended, remained substantially the same after giving effect to the 4th Amendment. We elected to apply the practical expedients included in ASU 2020-04 and 2021-01, accordingly, the 4th Amendment did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, the applicable interest rate for borrowings under the ABL Facility, as amended, was approximately 9% per annum.
As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, we were compliant with our debt covenants under the ABL Facility, as amended.
As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, the maximum restricted payment utilizing the ABL Facility, as amended, that our subsidiaries could make from its net assets was $108.4 million.
We consider the carrying amounts of the ABL Facility, as amended, to approximate fair value because of the variable interest rate of this facility, a Level 2 measurement (as defined in “Note 18—Fair Value Measurements”).
Availability under the ABL Facility, as amended, as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 was $116.1 million, which reflects no borrowings. Availability under the ABL Facility, as amended, at the end of fiscal year 2023 was $102.7 million, which reflects borrowings of $7.3 million. Standby letters of credit issued and outstanding were $11.4 million as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 and $11.4 million as of the end of fiscal year 2023. We amortize financing costs associated with the ABL Facility, as amended, over the five-year term of the ABL Facility, as amended, and reflect them in prepaid expenses and other current assets and deposits and other noncurrent assets in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, amortization of financing costs for the ABL Facility, as amended, was not material. During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, interest payments were $0.3 million and $0.5 million, respectively. We recognize amortization of financing costs and interest payments for the revolving credit facility in interest expense in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
Note 13. Income Taxes
Effective Tax Rate
During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, the provision for income taxes were $4.5 million and $4.7 million, respectively. The effective tax rates for the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023 were 26.9% and 28.6%, respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the three-month period ended May 4, 2024 as compared to the three-month period ended April 29, 2023 was primarily due to a decrease in the amount of non-deductible compensation for covered employees relative to income before provision for income taxes for the three-month period ended May 4, 2024.

Uncertain Tax Positions
The amount of income taxes we pay is subject to ongoing audits by taxing authorities. Our estimate of the potential outcome of any uncertain tax issue is subject to our assessment of the relevant risks, facts and circumstances existing at the time. We believe that we have adequately provided for reasonably foreseeable outcomes related to these matters. However, our future results may include favorable or unfavorable adjustments to our estimated tax liabilities in the period the assessments are made or resolved, which may impact our effective tax rate. As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, the total liability for income tax associated with unrecognized tax benefits, including interest and penalties, was $2.5 million ($2.1 million, net of federal benefit). As of the end of fiscal year 2023, the total liability for income tax associated with unrecognized tax benefits, including interest and penalties, was $2.5 million ($2.1 million, net of federal benefit). Our effective tax rate will be affected by any portion of this liability we may recognize.
We believe that it is reasonably possible that $0.4 million ($0.3 million net of federal benefit) of our liability for unrecognized tax benefits, of which the associated interest and penalties are not material, may be recognized in the next 12 months due to the expiration of statutes of limitations.

As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested stock options was $5.0 million, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 3.0 years.
RCUs
Restricted cash units (“RCUs”) are awarded to certain employees, non-employee directors and consultants and
represent the right to receive a cash payment at the end of a vesting period, subject to the employee’s continued employment or service as a director or consultant. In general, RCUs vest in equal installments each year over 4 years. RCUs are cash-settled with the value of each vested RCU equal to the lower of the closing price per share of our common stock on the vesting date or a specified per share price cap. We determined that RCUs are in-substance liabilities accounted for as liability instruments in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation, due to this cash settlement feature. RCUs are remeasured based on the closing price per share of our common stock at the end of each reporting period. As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, the liability associated with unvested RCUs was $0.3 million, which is included in accrued and other current liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.
Note 15. Commitments and Contingencies
Litigation
In November 2022, a class action complaint was filed against us in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (“the Court”), captioned Sandra Waswick v. Torrid Holdings Inc., et al. An amended complaint was filed in May 2023. The amended complaint alleges that certain statements in our registration statement on Form S-1 related to our IPO and in subsequent SEC filings and earnings calls were allegedly false and misleading. On December 1, 2023, the Court granted defendants’ motion to dismiss with leave to amend. Plaintiffs filed a further amended complaint on December 22, 2023, and defendants again moved to dismiss on January 26, 2024. Two shareholder derivative complaints were filed in September and October 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against us (as a nominal defendant) and certain officers and directors, captioned Allegra Morgado v. Lisa Harper, et al. and Nicole Long v. Lisa Harper, et al. The derivative complaints similarly allege that certain statements were allegedly false and misleading and that the individual defendants breached their fiduciary duties. The derivative cases have been consolidated and stayed, pending further developments in the securities class
18


action. We believe that these allegations are without merit and intend to vigorously defend ourselves against these claims. We are currently unable to determine the probability of the outcome of this matter or the range of reasonably possible loss, if any.
From time to time, we are involved in other matters of litigation that arise in the ordinary course of business. Though significant litigation or awards against us could seriously harm our business and financial results, we do not at this time expect these other matters of litigation to have a material adverse effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Indemnities, Commitments and Guarantees
During the ordinary course of business, we have made certain other indemnities, commitments and guarantees under which we may be required to make payments in relation to certain transactions. These indemnities include those given to various lessors in connection with facility leases for certain claims arising from such facility or lease and indemnities to our Board of Directors ("Board") and officers to the maximum extent permitted. Commitments include those given to various merchandise vendors and suppliers. From time to time, we have issued guarantees in the form of standby letters of credit as security for workers’ compensation claims (our letters of credit are discussed in more detail in “Note 12—Debt Financing Arrangements”). The durations of these indemnities, commitments and guarantees vary. Some of these indemnities, commitments and guarantees do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential future payments we could be obligated to make. We have not recorded any liability for these indemnities, commitments and guarantees in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements as no demands have been made upon us to provide indemnification under such agreements and there are no claims that we are aware of that could have a material effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Note 16. Share Repurchases
On December 6, 2021, our Board authorized a share repurchase program under which we may purchase up to $100.0 million of our outstanding common stock. Repurchases may be made from time to time, depending upon a variety of factors, including share price, corporate and regulatory requirements, and other market and business conditions, as determined by us. We may purchase shares of our common stock in the open market at current market prices at the time of purchase, in privately negotiated transactions, or by other means. The authorization does not, however, obligate us to acquire any particular amount of shares, and the share repurchase program may be suspended or terminated at any time at our discretion. As of May 4, 2024, we had approximately $44.9 million remaining under the share repurchase program. For the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, we did not repurchase any shares.
We have elected to retire shares repurchased to date. Shares retired become part of the pool of authorized but unissued shares. We have elected to record the purchase price of the retired shares in excess of par value, including transaction costs, directly as an increase in accumulated deficit.
Note 17. Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share is applicable only in periods of net income and is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period, inclusive of potentially dilutive common share equivalents outstanding for the period. During the three-month period ended May 4, 2024, there were approximately 1.0 million potentially dilutive common share equivalents outstanding that were included in the computation of diluted earnings per share. During the three-month period ended May 4, 2024, there were approximately 0.3 million restricted stock awards and RSUs, including PSUs, and approximately 2.2 million stock options outstanding, which were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share as those awards would have been anti-dilutive or were PSUs with performance conditions that had not yet been achieved. During the three-month period ended April 29, 2023, there were approximately 0.2 million potentially dilutive common share equivalents outstanding that were included in the computation of diluted earnings per share. During the three-month period ended April 29, 2023, there were approximately 1.0 million restricted stock awards and RSUs, including PSUs, and approximately 2.0 million stock options outstanding, which were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share as those awards would have been anti-dilutive or were PSUs with performance conditions that had not yet been achieved.

Note 18. Fair Value Measurements
We carry certain of our assets and liabilities at fair value in accordance with GAAP. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date.
Valuation techniques used to measure fair value require us to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:
Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable inputs, other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs other than quoted prices that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities, including interest rates and yield curves, and market corroborated inputs.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. These are valued based on our estimates and assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.
Financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 consisted of the following (in thousands):

The fair value of our money market funds is based on quoted prices in active markets. The deferred compensation plan liability represents the amount that would be earned by participants if the funds were invested in securities traded in active
20


markets. The fair value of the deferred compensation plan liability is determined based on quoted prices of similar assets that are traded in observable markets, or represents the cash withheld by participants prior to any investment activity.
Note 19. Deferred Compensation Plan
On August 1, 2015, we established the Torrid Management Deferred Compensation Plan (“Deferred Compensation Plan”) for the purpose of providing highly compensated employees a program to meet their financial planning needs. The Deferred Compensation Plan provides participants with the opportunity to defer up to 80% of their base salary and up to 100% of their annual earned bonus, all of which, together with the associated investment returns, are 100% vested from the outset. The Deferred Compensation Plan is designed to be exempt from most provisions of the Employee Retirement Security Act of 1974, as amended. All deferrals and associated earnings are our general unsecured obligations. We may at our discretion contribute certain amounts to eligible employees’ accounts. To the extent participants were ineligible to receive contributions from participation in our 401(k) Plan (as defined in “Note 20—Employee Benefit Plan”), we contributed 50% of the first 4% of participants’ eligible contributions into their Deferred Compensation Plan accounts. As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 and as of the end of fiscal year 2023, we did not have any assets of the Deferred Compensation Plan and the associated liabilities were $5.5 million and $5.6 million, respectively, included in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, $0.2 million of the $5.5 million Deferred Compensation Plan liabilities were included in accrued and other current liabilities in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of the end of fiscal year 2023, $0.1 million of the $5.6 million Deferred Compensation Plan liabilities were included in accrued and other current liabilities in our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Note 20. Employee Benefit Plan
On August 1, 2015, we adopted the Torrid 401(k) Plan (“401(k) Plan”). All employees who have been employed by us for at least 200 hours and are at least 21 years of age are eligible to participate. Employees may contribute up to 80% of their eligible compensation to the 401(k) Plan, subject to a statutorily prescribed annual limit. We may at our discretion contribute certain amounts to eligible employees’ accounts. We may contribute 50% of the first 4% of participants’ eligible contributions into their 401(k) Plan accounts. During the three-month periods ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, we contributed $0.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, to eligible employees’ Torrid 401(k) Plan accounts.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion summarizes the significant factors affecting the consolidated operating results, financial condition, liquidity and cash flows of our Company as of and for the periods presented below. The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that are based on the beliefs of our management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, our management. Actual results could differ materially from those discussed in or implied by forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those described below and in the sections entitled "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 2, 2024 and in our other filings with the SEC and public communications.
Overview
Torrid is a direct-to-consumer brand of apparel, intimates and accessories in North America aimed at fashionable women who are curvy and wear sizes 10 to 30. Torrid is focused on fit and offers high quality products across a broad assortment that includes tops, bottoms, denim, dresses, intimates, activewear, footwear and accessories. Our proprietary product offering delivers a superior fit for the curvy woman that makes her love the way she looks and feels. Our style is unapologetically youthful and sexy. We believe our customer values the appeal and versatility of our curated product assortment that helps her look her best for any occasion, including weekend, casual, work and dressy, all at accessible price points. Through our product and brand experience we connect with customers in a way that other brands, many of which treat plus-size customers as an after-thought, have not.
Key Financial and Operating Metrics
We use the following metrics to assess the progress of our business, inform how we allocate our time and capital, and assess the near-term and longer-term performance of our business.

(A)Comparable sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 compares sales for the 13-week period ended May 4, 2024 with sales for the 13-week period ended May 6, 2023. Comparable sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 compares sales for the 13-week period ended April 29, 2023 with sales for the 13-week period ended April 30, 2022.
(B)Please refer to “Results of Operations” for a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA.
Comparable Sales. We define comparable sales for any given period as the sales of our e-Commerce operations and stores that we have included in our comparable sales base during that period. We include a store in our comparable sales base after it has been open for 15 full fiscal months. If a store is closed during a fiscal year, it is only included in the computation of comparable sales for the full fiscal months in which it was open. Comparable sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 compares sales for the 13-week period ended May 4, 2024 with sales for the 13-week period ended May 6, 2023. Comparable sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 compares sales for the 13-week period ended April 29, 2023 with sales for the 13-week period ended April 30, 2022. Partial fiscal months are excluded from the computation of comparable sales. We apply current year foreign currency exchange rates to both current year and prior year comparable sales to remove the impact of foreign currency fluctuation and achieve a consistent basis for comparison. Comparable sales allow us to evaluate how our unified commerce business is performing exclusive of the effects of non-comparable sales and new store openings.
Number of Stores. Store count reflects all stores open at the end of a reporting period. In connection with opening new stores, we incur pre-opening costs, which primarily consist of payroll, travel, training, marketing, initial opening supplies, costs of transporting initial inventory and fixtures to store locations, and occupancy costs incurred from the time of possession of a store site to the opening of that store. These pre-opening costs are included in our selling, general and administrative expenses and are expensed as incurred.
22


Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of our operating performance that is neither required by, nor presented in accordance with GAAP and our calculation thereof may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA represents GAAP net income (loss) plus interest expense less interest income, net of other expense (income), plus provision for less (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), and share-based compensation, noncash deductions and charges and other expenses. We believe Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by isolating the effects of certain items that vary from period to period without any correlation to ongoing operating performance. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the primary methods for planning and forecasting the overall expected performance of our business and for evaluating on a quarterly and annual basis actual results against such expectations. Further, we recognize Adjusted EBITDA as a commonly used measure in determining business value and, as such, use it internally to report and analyze our results and as a benchmark to determine certain non-equity incentive payments made to executives.
Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool. This measure is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to or substitute for net income (loss), income (loss) from operations or any other performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Among other limitations, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect:
 
interest expense;
interest income, net of other expense (income);
provision for income taxes;
depreciation and amortization;
share-based compensation;
noncash deductions and charges; and
other expenses.
Factors Affecting Our Performance
We believe that our performance and future success depend on a number of factors that present significant opportunities for us but also pose risks and challenges, including those discussed below and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q in the section titled “Risk Factors.”
Customer Acquisition and Retention. Our success is impacted not only by efficient and profitable customer acquisition, but also by our ability to retain customers and encourage repeat purchases. It is important to maintain reasonable costs for these marketing efforts relative to the net sales and profit we expect to derive from customers. Failure to effectively attract customers on a cost-efficient basis would adversely impact our profitability and operating results. New requirements for consumer disclosures regarding privacy practices, and new application tracking transparency framework that requires opt-in consent for certain types of tracking were implemented by third party providers in 2021, which has increased the difficulty and cost of acquiring and retaining customers. These changes may adversely affect our results of operations.
Customer Migration from Single to Omni-channel. We have a history of converting customers from single-channel customers to omni-channel customers, defined as active customers who shopped both online and in-store within the last twelve months. Customers that shop across multiple channels purchase from us more frequently and spent approximately 3.5 times more per year than our single-channel customer during fiscal year 2023.
Overall Economic Trends. Our results of operations during any given period are often impacted by the overall economic conditions in the markets in which we operate. Consumer purchases of clothing generally remain constant or may increase during stable economic periods and decline during recessionary periods, inflationary periods and other periods when disposable income is adversely affected. Recent historic high rates of inflation have led to a softening of consumer demand. We have encountered inflation on our wages, transportation and product costs, and a material increase in these costs without any meaningful offsetting price increases may reduce our future profits.
Demographic Changes. The growth of our business is impacted, in part, by the size of the plus-size population. Slower or negative growth in this demographic, specific to certain geographic markets, income levels or overall, could adversely affect our results of operations.
23


Growth in Brand Awareness. We intend to continue investing in our brand, with a specific focus on growing brand awareness, customer engagement, and conversion through targeted investments in performance and brand marketing. We have made significant historical investments to strengthen the Torrid brand through our marketing efforts, brand partnerships, events and expansion of our social media presence. If we fail to cost-effectively promote our brand or convert impressions into new customers, our net sales growth and profitability may be adversely affected.
Inventory Management. Our strategy is built around a base of core products that provide our customer with year-round style. At the same time, we introduce new lines of merchandise approximately 16 times per year, thus providing a consistent flow of fresh merchandise to keep our customer engaged, encourage repeat business and attract new customers. We employ a data-driven approach to design and product development, proactively and quickly incorporating sales and operational performance information alongside customer feedback from thousands of product reviews. We engage in ongoing dialogue with customers through social media and customer surveys. Shifts in inventory levels may result in fluctuations in the amount of regular price sales, markdowns, and merchandise mix, as well as gross margin.
Investments. We have invested significantly to strengthen our business, including augmenting leadership across our organization and enhancing our infrastructure and technology in order to realize growth. We anticipate that our operating expenses will grow as we continue to increase our spending on advertising and marketing and hire additional personnel primarily in marketing, product design and development, merchandising, technology, operations, customer service and general and administrative functions. We will also continue to selectively expand our store footprint and make investments to improve the customer experience both in-store and online. We believe that such investments will increase the number and loyalty of our customers and, as a result, yield positive financial performance in the long term.
Seasonality. While seasonality frequently impacts businesses in the retail sector, our business is generally not seasonal. Accordingly, our net sales do not fluctuate as significantly as those of other brands and retailers from quarter to quarter and any modest seasonal effect does not significantly change the underlying trends in our business. Additionally, we do not generate an outsized share of our net sales or Adjusted EBITDA during the holiday season. Typically, our Adjusted EBITDA generation is strongest in the first half of the year as we benefit from more favorable merchandise margins, lower advertising and lower shipping expenses relative to the second half of the year. The lack of net sales seasonality provides structural cost advantages relative to peers, including reduced staffing cyclicality and seasonal distribution capacity needs.
Impact of Infectious Disease Outbreaks. Infectious disease outbreaks may cause general business disruption worldwide which could directly or indirectly impact our business, results of operations, cash flows, and financial condition. This could have a negative impact on our business including, but not limited to, closure requirements with respect to some or all of our physical locations, changes in consumer behavior, difficulties attracting and retaining employees and supply chain disruptions.
Components of Our Results of Operations
Net Sales. Net sales reflects our revenues from the sale of our merchandise, shipping and handling revenue received from e-Commerce sales, PLCC Funds and gift card breakage income, less returns, discounts and loyalty points/awards. Revenue from our stores is recognized at the time of sale and revenue from our e-Commerce channel is recognized upon shipment of the merchandise to the home of the customer; except in cases where the merchandise is shipped to a store and revenue is recognized when the customer retrieves the merchandise from the store. Net sales are impacted by the size of our active customer base, product assortment and availability, marketing and promotional activities and the spending habits of our customers. Net sales are also impacted by the migration of single-channel customers (i.e., customers shopping only in-store or online) to omni-channel customers (i.e., customers shopping both in-store and online), who on average spend significantly more than single-channel customers in a given year.
Gross Profit. Gross profit is equal to our net sales less cost of goods sold. Our cost of goods sold includes merchandise costs, freight, inventory shrinkage, payroll expenses associated with the merchandising department, distribution center expenses and store occupancy expenses, including rent, common area maintenance charges, real estate taxes and depreciation. Merchandising payroll costs and store occupancy costs included within cost of goods sold are largely fixed and do not necessarily increase as volume increases. We review our inventory levels on an ongoing basis in order to identify slow-moving merchandise and generally use markdowns to clear that merchandise. The timing and level of markdowns are driven primarily by customer acceptance of our merchandise. The primary drivers of our merchandise costs include the raw materials, labor in the countries where we source our merchandise, customs duties, and logistics costs.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses include all operating costs not included in cost of goods sold or marketing expenses.
24


Marketing Expenses. We continue to make investments in marketing in an effort to grow and retain our active customer base and increase our brand awareness. Marketing expenses consist primarily of (i) targeted online performance marketing costs, such as retargeting, paid search/product listing advertising, and social media advertisements, (ii) store and brand marketing, public relations and photographic production designed to acquire, retain and remain connected to customers and (iii) payroll and benefits expenses associated with our marketing team.
Interest Expense. Interest expense consists primarily of interest expense and other fees associated with our ABL Facility, as amended, and our Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement.
Provision for Income Taxes. Our provision for income taxes consists of an estimate of federal and state income taxes based on enacted federal and state tax rates, as adjusted for allowable credits, deductions and uncertain tax positions.

Net Sales
Net sales decreased $14.1 million, or 4.8%, to $279.8 million for the three months ended May 4, 2024, from $293.9 million for the three months ended April 29, 2023. This decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in sales transactions and a decrease in PLCC Funds, partially offset by improved pricing strategies. The total number of stores we operate increased by 20 stores, or 3.1%, to 658 stores as of May 4, 2024, from 638 stores as of April 29, 2023.
Gross Profit
Gross profit for the three months ended May 4, 2024 increased $4.8 million, or 4.3%, to $115.4 million, from $110.6 million for the three months ended April 29, 2023. This increase was primarily due to improved merchandise margin and decreased merchandising payroll costs and distribution center expenses. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased 3.6% to 41.3% for the three months ended May 4, 2024 from 37.7% for the three months ended April 29, 2023. This increase was primarily driven by improved merchandise margin due to reduced product costs.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended May 4, 2024 increased $5.2 million, or 7.4%, to $76.5 million, from $71.2 million for the three months ended April 29, 2023. The increase was primarily due to a $4.3 million increase in performance bonuses and a $3.2 million increase in headquarters general and administrative expenses, partially offset by a $2.3 million decrease in store and e-Commerce payroll costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales increased 3.0% to 27.3% for the three months ended May 4, 2024 from 24.3% for the three months ended April 29, 2023. This increase was primarily driven by increased performance bonuses and headquarters general and administrative expenses.
Marketing Expenses
Marketing expenses for the three months ended May 4, 2024 decreased $0.6 million, or 4.5%, to $12.8 million, from $13.4 million for the three months ended April 29, 2023. The decrease was primarily due to decreases in
performance marketing, such as retargeting, email/SMS marketing, store marketing and marketing team payroll, partially offset by increases in social media and model search spend. Marketing expenses as a percentage of net sales increased 0.1% to 4.6% during the three months ended May 4, 2024 from 4.5% during the three months ended April 29, 2023. This increase was due to deleverage of our marketing expenses as a result of lower net sales.

26


Interest Expense
Interest expense was $9.4 million for the three months ended May 4, 2024, compared to $9.5 million for the three months ended April 29, 2023. The decrease was primarily due to a lower Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement balance due to principal payments and reduced borrowings under the ABL Facility, as amended.
Provision for Income Taxes
The provision for income taxes were $4.5 million and $4.7 million for the three months ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, respectively. Our effective tax rate was 26.9% for the three months ended May 4, 2024 and 28.6% for the three months ended April 29, 2023. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the three months ended May 4, 2024 as compared to the three months ended April 29, 2023 was primarily due to a decrease in the amount of non-deductible compensation for covered employees relative to income before provision for income taxes for the three months ended May 4, 2024.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
General
Our business relies on cash flows from operations as our primary source of liquidity. We do, however, have access to additional liquidity, if needed, through borrowings under our ABL Facility, as amended. Availability under the ABL Facility, as amended, as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2024, was $116.1 million, which reflects no borrowings. Our primary cash needs are for merchandise inventories, payroll, rent for our stores, headquarters and distribution center, capital expenditures associated with opening new stores and updating existing stores, logistics and information technology. We also need cash to fund our interest and principal payments on the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement, and make discretionary repurchases of our common stock. The most significant components of our working capital are cash and cash equivalents, merchandise inventories, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accounts payable, accrued and other current liabilities and operating lease liabilities. We believe that cash generated from operations and the availability of borrowings under our ABL Facility, as amended, or other financing arrangements will be sufficient to meet working capital requirements and anticipated capital expenditures for at least the next 12 months. There can be no assurance, however, that our business will generate sufficient cash flows from operations or that future borrowings will be available under our ABL Facility, as amended, or otherwise to enable us to service our indebtedness, or to make capital expenditures in the future. Our future operating performance and our ability to service or extend our indebtedness will be subject to future economic conditions and to financial, business and other factors, many of which are beyond our control.
July 2023 Reduction in Workforce
In July 2023, we implemented a strategic reduction of approximately 5% of our workforce employed in our headquarters in City of Industry, California. Costs to implement the workforce reduction were comprised primarily of severance payments and continuing health care coverage over the severance period. In July 2023, we recognized $1.5 million of expense related to the workforce reduction in selling, general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. None of our employees are represented by a labor union or are party to a collective bargaining agreement.
Cash Flow Analysis
A summary of operating, investing and financing activities are shown in the following table (in thousands):
Three Months Ended
May 4, 2024April 29, 2023

Net cash used in investing activities(7,008)(5,660)
Net cash used in financing activities(11,859)(800)
Net Cash Provided By Operating Activities

27


Net cash provided by operating activities during the three months ended May 4, 2024 was $27.6 million compared to $11.2 million during the three months ended April 29, 2023. The increase in cash provided by operating activities during the three months ended May 4, 2024 was primarily as a result of increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses and other current liabilities, partially offset by an increase in inventory purchases and a decrease in operating lease liabilities.
Net Cash Used In Investing Activities
Typical investing activities consist primarily of capital expenditures for growth (new store openings, relocations and major remodels), store maintenance (minor store remodels and investments in store fixtures), and infrastructure to support the business related primarily to information technology, our headquarters facility and our West Jefferson, Ohio distribution center.
Net cash flows used in investing activities during the three months ended May 4, 2024 was $7.0 million, compared to $5.7 million during the three months ended April 29, 2023. The increase in cash used in investing activities was primarily as a result of an increase in capital expenditures related to our West Jefferson, Ohio distribution center and increased capital expenditures related to the opening of new stores and store relocations during the three months ended May 4, 2024, compared to the three months ended April 29, 2023.
Net Cash Used In Financing Activities
Financing activities consist primarily of (i) borrowings and repayments related to our ABL Facility, as amended, (ii) borrowings and repayments related to the Amended Term Loan Credit Agreement and (iii) repurchases and retirement of our common stock.
Net cash used in financing activities during the three months ended May 4, 2024 was $11.9 million compared to $0.8 million during the three months ended April 29, 2023.

Item 1. Legal Proceedings
From time to time, we are subject to certain legal proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of business. We are not presently party to any legal proceedings the resolution of which we believe would have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results or cash flows. We establish reserves for specific legal matters when we determine that the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome is probable and the loss is reasonably estimable.
Item 1A. Risk Factors
There have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 3, 2024.

We may purchase shares of our common stock in the open market at current market prices at the time of purchase, in privately negotiated transactions, or by other means.
