Bed Bath & Beyond has been gaining from continued strength in its digital channel, driven by enhanced omnichannel capabilities, including buy online and pick up in store, and same-day delivery services. In doing so, it has entered the next phase of its supply-chain modernization via a partnership with Ryder and has expanded its same-day delivery service through a partnership with Roadie. Earlier, it partnered with DoorDash to expand its same-day delivery services across the United States and Canada.
The company has been on track to enable cross-banner browsing across the Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy BABY, and Harmon brands. It also launched its digital marketplace in partnership with Kroger to strengthen its position in the home and baby categories. The company has been progressing well with the transformation plan, including store fleet optimization efforts and store remodeling programs. Bed Bath & Beyond has been on track with the rollout of Owned Brands as part of its three-year transformation plan. Per the plan, it has introduced eight Owned Brands, including Nestwell, Haven, Simply Essential, Wild Sage, Our Table, Squared Away, Studio 3B and H for Happy. Gains from these efforts are expected to have provided some cushion to the company's performance in the to-be-reported quarter. However, BBBY has been reeling under the global supply-chain concerns, adverse impacts of the omicron variant, and geopolitical turbulence, which dampened consumer confidence. The lack of available inventory is expected to have been concerning. Also, supply-chain headwinds, elevated freight and shipping costs, and higher-than-anticipated inflation are likely to have dented margins. On its last reported quarter’s earnings call, management expected adjusted EBITDA to be negative for the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Zacks Model
