KBRA Credit Profile Releases Research: Will Tuesday Morning Make It to the Weekend?
KBRA Credit Profile (KCP), a division of KBRA Analytics, releases research on CMBS exposure to discount retailer Tuesday Morning amid operational struggles. The company has struggled to find its footing after emerging from a pandemic-driven Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2021, and it recently engaged Piper Sandler to explore restructuring options. Tuesday Morning executives believe the company's $35 million in liquidity as of its fiscal Q3 2022 (ended April 2) will sustain operations for another 12 months. However, total debt rose from $25.4 million last year to $83.6 million through fiscal Q3 2022, and guidance on Q4 2022 comparable store sales was lowered in May.
KCP identified 71 properties collateralizing the same number of loans-$1.07 billion by allocated loan amount (ALA)-across 72 CMBS transactions with exposure to a Tuesday Morning location. Should the company opt to restructure a second time, leases on underperforming stores could be rejected through Chapter 11 proceedings. The company permanently closed 200 stores in 2020-21and partnered with predictive analytics firm Intalytics in July 2022 to optimize its brick-and-mortar footprint.
