FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 22, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --RadioShack Corporation (NYSE:
RSH) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013,
including total net sales and operating revenues of $805 million and net loss
of $112 million. The Company also announced that it has received commitments
for $835 million of a new five-year debt financing. The Company continues to
address significant legacy issues as it engineers a comprehensive operational
turnaround driven by the Company's five pillars: reposition the brand, revamp
the product assortment, reinvigorate the store experience, operational
efficiency and financial flexibility.


Joseph C. Magnacca, chief executive officer, said, "We are moving forward
quickly and as planned with our turnaround efforts. As we have said, we expect
our work to take several quarters and during that time our results will vary
quarter to quarter as we make strategic changes to improve our long-term
financial performance. This quarter reflects our strategic decision to
accelerate the improvements to the product assortment in our stores by
removing duplicate and unproductive inventory. The lower inventory valuations
for these products and projected disposal costs resulted in an expected
increase to our cost of products sold this quarter."

Mr. Magnacca continued: "We have an aggressive plan to reinvigorate our store
experience this fall in nearly all of our stores. This plan builds upon the
sales improvement we've seen in three concept stores and two brand statement
stores. By the end of the year, we will have over 100 concept and brand
statement stores open. In addition, we are currently contemporizing our stores
by significantly re-merchandising inventory in a more logical manner and
improving presentation. Our entire store base of nearly 4,300 stores will see
improvements from these changes which are being implemented in the early part
of the fourth quarter."

"We are pleased with the recently obtained commitments for new financing. We
are on track to achieve the Company's previously stated objective to
supplement liquidity and enhance financial flexibility for the continued
execution of our operational turnaround."

Note: All comparisons are versus the same period of the prior fiscal year
unless otherwise noted.

"We strongly believe our new retail and consumer-centric strategy has us
heading in the right direction. We've made significant progress in the third
quarter and will continue to focus on execution during the all-important
holiday selling season," Mr. Magnacca concluded.


  oTotal net sales and operating revenues were $805 million, compared to $898
    million last year. The decline was driven by an 8.4% decrease in
    comparable store sales due to reduced sales for each of the Company's
    product platforms. The Company continued to see increased sales of prepaid
    mobile phones in the mobility platform and in certain signature categories
    including portable speakers, Apple Lightning compatible cables and
    adaptors during the period.
  oGross profit was $243 million, compared with $341 million last year. Gross
    margin was 30.1% of net sales, compared to 38.0% last year. Gross profit
    and gross margin performance were negatively impacted by approximately $47
    million as a result of the Company's decision to accelerate the
    merchandise assortment changes by removing duplicate and unproductive
    products. Additionally, gross profit was negatively impacted by lower
    sales and decreased gross profit in the postpaid wireless business.
  oSelling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $343 million, or
    42.6% of net sales, compared with $354 million last year. The decrease was
    driven by fewer stores in operation and lower severance costs versus last
  oOperating loss was $118 million, compared to a $34 million loss last year.
  oNet loss was $112 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, compared to net
    loss of $47 million last year.
  oThe Company continues to have a strong balance sheet and total liquidity
    of $613 million as of September 30, 2013.


The Company ended the third quarter with total liquidity of $613 million,
including cash and cash equivalents of $316.4 million and $296.2 million of
available credit under the asset-based revolving credit facility that expires
in January 2016.

The Company's total debt was $499 million at September 30, 2013. On August 1,
2013, the Company repaid the $214 million remaining aggregate principal
balance of the 2013 Convertible Notes at maturity. The balance of the
Company's debt matures between 2016 and 2019.

Capital spending totaled $14.9 million in the third quarter compared to $16.8
million last year.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company obtained financing
commitments from a consortium of lenders led by GE Capital, Corporate Finance;
CIT Corporate Finance; RBS Citizens, N.A.; and Salus Capital Partners. These
commitments total $835 million including a new $585 million senior secured ABL
credit facility and a new $250 million secured term loan. The new debt
facilities will be used to refinance the Company's existing $450 million ABL
credit facility, $75 million of term loans and $100 million second lien term
loan. The Company expects the new financings will provide approximately $175
million of incremental liquidity. The Company expects the new debt facilities
will be closed in the fourth quarter. The new financings are subject to
customary closing conditions.
