    MONTREAL, Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Look Vision Group Inc. ("New Look Vision" or the "Company") (TSX: BCI), a leader in the Canadian retail optical industry with stores across Canada and stores in Florida, reported financial results today for the 13 and 26 week periods ended June 27, 2020 (“Q2 2020”) and provided updates on actions in response to COVID-19, store re-openings, and new financing arrangements. This press release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s management discussion and analysis (the “MD&A") and interim consolidated financial statements for the second quarter of 2020, which are available on the Company’s website at www.newlookvision.ca/investors and have been posted on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.Q2 2020 Financial and Operational HighlightsQ2 2020 highlights, which were significantly impacted by COVID-19, are as follows: * Revenues decreased by 64.9% to $27.4 million, resulting principally from COVID-19 temporary store closures, as well as scheduled store closures offset by revenue from newly acquired stores. * Adjusted EBITDA attributed to shareholders(a) was $1.2 million, a decrease of $14.1 million or 92.3% from last year and decreased 91.8% on a per diluted share basis to $0.08. * Net loss attributed to shareholders was $12.4 million, a decrease of 281.5% from last year. * Adjusted net (loss)/earnings attributed to shareholders(a) decreased by 231.7% to ($9.7) million or ($0.62) on a per diluted share basis. * Cash flows related to operating activities reached $5.5 million, a decrease of $4.7 million or 46.3% from last year and decreased 47.0% on a per diluted share basis to $0.35. * During the quarter, the Company successfully secured $73.9 million of additional bank and subordinated debt financing. * The Board of Directors suspended the regular quarterly dividend and the corresponding dividend reinvestment plan until further notice, effective March 19, 2020 in order to improve liquidity during the COVID-19 period.Year-to-date Financial and Operating ResultsIt should be noted that the Company has adopted IFRS 16 Leases effective Q1 2020. The Company has applied a modified retrospective approach; the operating results of previous fiscal periods have not been restated. Occupancy costs previously recorded as operating expenses are now recorded through depreciation of right-of-use assets and interest expenses on lease liabilities. * Year-to-date revenues and adjusted EBITDA attributed to shareholders(a) were $95.5 million and $16.6 million respectively, which represent decreases of 36.2% and 38.9% respectively from last year. * The increase in the number of stores in the last twelve months reflects the acquisition of 19 stores net of five planned closures and the sale of one clinic. * Net (loss)/earnings attributed to shareholders were ($12.7) million or ($0.81) per diluted share, compared to $8.9 million last year or $0.57 per diluted share. * Adjusted net (loss)/earnings attributed to shareholders(a) decreased to ($8.3) million, a decrease of $19.6 million, as compared to last year. Adjusted net (loss)/earnings attributed to shareholders(a) reached ($0.53) per diluted share, down 173.6% from $0.72 in 2019. * Cash flows related to operating activities reached $19.0 million, a decrease of 16.7% as compared to last year and decreased 17.1% on a per diluted share basis to $1.21.Actions in response to COVID-19New Look Vision has and continues to respond swiftly to the crisis along three principles: participation, protection and responsibility. 1. Participation in stemming the pandemic spread by closing a large number of locations early on (stores, offices, factories and distribution centers). 2. Protection for our employees with a supplemental pay program for those placed on temporary leave. Protection of our financial autonomy with immediate cash burn optimization (expense freeze, CAPEX postponement, dividend suspension, executive pay reduction) and expansion of our available funding from both our lenders. As a result, the Company is confident that it has the necessary financial resource to sustain the ongoing impact of the pandemic. 3. Responsibility, as eye care professionals, to keep open a minimum number of stores to serve those in urgent need of eye care and eyewear. The Company launched the Guardian Angel program on March 25th giving hospital personnel the opportunity to replace broken eyewear quickly. Our central lens processing facility retooled to produce safety eyewear for use in health care facilities.Throughout the shutdown, teams working on strategic initiatives, both internal and external, have carried on.New Look Vision continues to diligently control its cost structure while actively monitoring market conditions.Network Re-OpeningGradual store reopening started on May 4th in line with local and professional regulations. Ahead of reopening stores, the Company issued stringent health and safety procedures, undertook extensive training in the form of in-store rehearsals and is providing each location with prescribed personal protection equipment. By the end of the second quarter, the Company's entire store network had re-opened.New Financing ArrangementsIn Q2 2020, the Company successfully secured an additional $73.9 million in bank and subordinated debt financing to strengthen its balance sheet and boost liquidity for both working capital and acquisition and development purposes. As at June 27, 2020, as a result, it had $47.1 million of cash on hand and undrawn credit and subordinated debt facilities of $52.7 million.President & CEO's comments Antoine Amiel, the President and CEO of New Look Vision, stated that: "The second quarter started after most of the Company’s retail stores stopped operating mid-March. Gradual reopening started mid-May and was completed by June 21st when the last local retail operation restrictions were lifted. In March, the Company implemented a high impact cash conservation plan which yielded minimum cash burn throughout the 90+ day physical retail shutdown. This, in addition to revenues generated online, is reflected in the strong cash position at quarter’s end, given the circumstances. Retail operations re-started in each market as soon as local regulatory restrictions allowed and under all-encompassing safety first internal protocols. Trade has been brisk since the re-start. Strengthened by its resilience, financial and organizational strengths throughout the COVID-19 disruption, the Company has resumed its profitable growth journey, organic and external. I am, more than ever, in awe of the New Look Vision Group people’s fortitude through the ordeal and dedication to eyecare and eyewear since the re-start. They deserve the highest praise and deepest gratitude."Status of Dividend The Board of Directors suspended the regular quarterly dividend and the corresponding dividend reinvestment plan until further notice, effective March 19, 2020.The decision to declare a dividend is made quarterly when the financial statements for a quarter or a financial year are made available to the Board of Directors. Although there is no guarantee that a dividend will be declared in the future, New Look Vision and its predecessor, Benvest New Look Income Fund, have regularly paid a dividend or distribution since 2005 through 2019.As at July 31, 2020, New Look Vision had 15,660,199 Class A common shares issued and outstanding.Attachments * Table A - Highlights * Table B - Impact of IFRS 16 * Table C - Consolidated Statement of Earnings * Table D - Reconciliation of Net (Loss)/Earnings to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Attributed to Shareholders * Table E - Reconciliation of Net (Loss)/Earnings Attributed to Shareholders to Adjusted Net Earnings Attributed to Shareholders * Table F - Reconciliation of Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Cash Flows Related to Operating Activities 1.

Comparable stores are stores which have been operating for at least 12 months. Due to the exceptional circumstances in the quarter whereby the majority of the Company’s stores were closed for most of the period, management deems the period to be non-comparable and is therefore not reporting a comparable store sales metric. Revenues are recognized at time of delivery of goods to customers, however management measures the comparable store performance on the basis of sales orders, whether delivered or not. 2. Adjusted EBITDA attributed to shareholders, adjusted net (loss)/earnings attributed to shareholders, free cash flow and comparable store sales orders are not recognized measures under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other entities. Refer to Table D and Table E  for the reconciliations of these measures to net (loss)/earnings, and to Table F for the reconciliation of cash flows. 3. Free cash flow is defined as cash flows related to operating activities, less acquisitions of property, plant and equipment. 4. Net debt is defined as total debt less cash. Adjusted EBITDA attributed to shareholders represents the amount over the last four rolling quarters. 5. The amounts of dividends shown in the table above refer to amounts declared in the periods. 6. The increase in the number of stores in the last twelve months reflects the acquisition of 19 stores net of five planned closures and the sale of one clinic. TABLE BNEW LOOK VISION GROUP INC.
