Solo Brands : Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results Strong Sales Growth Year-Over-Year - Form 8-K

Aug 11, 2022

08/11/2022 | 07:05am EDT Message : Strong Sales Growth Year-Over-Year GRAPEVINE, Texas: Solo Brands, Inc. (NYSE: DTC) ("Solo Brands" or "the Company"), a portfolio of rapidly growing direct-to-consumer lifestyle brands, today announced its financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022. Second Quarter 2022 Highlights Compared to Second Quarter 2021(1) •Net sales of $136.0 million, up $47.3 million or 53.3% •Net loss of $19.9 million, down $39.6 million •Loss per Class A common stock - basic and diluted of $(0.19) for the second quarter of 2022 •Adjusted net income(2) of $17.3 million, down $10.1 million, or 36.8% •Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $23.7 million, down $7.4 million, or 23.8% •Adjusted EPS(2) of $0.40 for the second quarter of 2022 "We delivered solid top-line results with sales trends strengthening as we moved through the quarter. Importantly, our strong sales growth was achieved with healthy gross margin rates despite worldwide supply chain headwinds. Our direct to consumer (DTC) approach is highly-differentiated, allowing us to continue delivering profit while simultaneously investing in innovation and systems, which we believe will position us to deliver consistent, long-term growth for our shareholders," said John Merris, CEO of Solo Brands. "We are excited about our opportunity to drive organic growth led by a direct connection to our customers and a strong pipeline of innovative products." Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2022(1) Net sales increased 53.3% to $136.0 million, compared to $88.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was driven by activity from acquired businesses and improved demand in both the wholesale and direct-to-consumer sales channels. •Direct-to-consumer revenues increased 63.2% to $116.1 million compared to $71.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. •Wholesale revenues increased 13.1% to $19.9 million compared to $17.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. Gross profit increased 45.2% to $86.7 million, compared to $59.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted gross profit(2) increased 46.2% to $88.4 million compared to $60.4 million in the same period of the prior year, reflecting the impact of purchase accounting adjustments related to acquired businesses. Gross margin decreased 3.5% to 63.7%. Adjusted gross margin(2) decreased to 65.0% compared to 68.1% in the same period in 2021 due to increased freight rates and higher logistics costs. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased to $69.2 million, compared to $29.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. $17.3 million of the increase was due to activity from acquired businesses. The remaining increases in SG&A was primarily driven by the following: an $8.2 million increases in employee costs as a result of equity-based compensation and increased headcount, a $6.3 million increases in advertising and marketing spend, a $4.1 million increases in distribution and logistics costs, a $1.4 million increase in professional services, and a $1.1 million increase in rent. Depreciation and amortization expenses increased to $6.0 million compared to $4.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in depreciation and amortization expenses was driven by a $1.0 million increase in amortization primarily related to increases in definite-lived intangible assets as a result of acquisition activity and a $0.7 million increase in depreciation primarily related to a new global headquarters facility. Impairment Charges of $30.6 million were recorded in the second quarter of 2022, of which $27.9 million related to goodwill for the Company's ISLE reporting unit and $2.7 million related to the ISLE trademark intangible. No impairment charges were recorded during the second quarter of 2021. Loss per Class A common stock basic and diluted per share was $0.19. A comparison to the same period last year is not meaningful or comparable due to the reorganization transactions which occurred in 2021. Refer to the footnote in the unaudited consolidated statements of operations for more information. Adjusted EPS(2) for the second quarter of 2022 was $0.40. Weighted average basic and diluted shares were 63,416,047. Operating Results For the Six Months Ended June 30, 2022(1) Net sales increased 38.3% to $218.2 million, compared to $157.8 million in the prior year period primarily driven by activity from acquired businesses. •Direct-to-consumer revenues increased 32.2% to $176.3 million compared to $133.4 million in the prior year period. •Wholesale revenues increased 71.7% to $41.9 million compared to $24.4 million in the prior year period. Gross profit increased 27.7% to $135.5 million, compared to $106.2 million in the prior year and adjusted gross profit(2), reflecting the impact of purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisitions, increased 33.3% to $143.3 million compared to $107.6 million in the prior year period. Gross margin decreased 5.2% to 62.1%. Adjusted gross margin(2) decreased to 65.7% compared to 68.2% in the prior year period, in line with expectations due to increased freight rates and higher logistics costs. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 137.2% to $114.8 million, compared to $48.4 million in the prior year period. $27.5 million of the increase was due to activity from acquired businesses. The remaining increases in SG&A was primarily driven by the following: a $15.6 million increase in employee costs as a result of equity-based compensation and increased headcount, a $10.2 million increase in advertising and marketing spend, a $4.1 million increase in distribution and logistics costs, a $2.5 million increase in professional services primarily as a result of the audit of the 2021 Form 10-K, a $2.1 million increase in rent as a result of a new global headquarters facility, and a $1.7 million increase in insurance as a result of becoming a public company. 1 Depreciation and amortization expenses increased to $12.0 million compared to $7.9 million in the prior year period. The increase in depreciation and amortization expenses was driven by a $2.7 million increase in amortization primarily related to increases in definite-lived intangible assets as a result of acquisition activity and a $1.3 million increase in depreciation primarily related to a new global headquarters facility. Impairment Charges of $30.6 million were recorded in 2022, of which $27.9 million related to goodwill for the Company's ISLE reporting unit and $2.7 million related to the ISLE trademark intangible. No impairment charges were recorded during the prior year. Loss per Class A common stock basic and diluted per share was $0.22. A comparison to the same period last year is not meaningful or comparable due to the Reorganization Transactions which occurred in 2021. Refer to the footnote on the unaudited consolidated statements of operations for more information. Adjusted EPS(2) for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $0.59. Weighted average diluted shares were 63,408,451. Balance Sheet Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the second quarter totaled $26.7 million, compared to $25.1 million at December 31, 2021. Outstanding borrowings were $57.5 million under the Revolving Credit Facility, and $98.1 million under the Term Loan Agreement as of June 30, 2022. The borrowing capacity on the Revolving Credit Facility was $350 million as of June 30, 2022, leaving $292.5 million of availability. Inventory at the end of the second quarter was $128.2 million, compared to $102.3 million at December 31, 2021. Increases in inventory were driven by a proactive approach for demand planning in light of ongoing inflation and supply chain concerns and preparation for new product launches. Full Year 2022 Guidance We are updating our outlook for the full year 2022 to reflect current visibility into the global macroeconomic environment and consumer trends as follows: Total revenue is expected to grow in the mid-20% range. Adjusted gross margin* is planned to be above 60% of total revenue. Adjusted EBITDA margin* is forecasted to be in the mid-teens as a percentage of total revenue. The Company's full year 2022 guidance is based on a number of assumptions that are subject to change and many of which are outside the Company's control. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company's expectations may change. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve these results. * The Company has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of forecasted adjusted gross margin or adjusted EBITDA margin to forecasted GAAP gross margin or net income (loss) as a percent of net sales, respectively, within this press release because the Company is unable, without making unreasonable efforts, to calculate certain reconciling items with confidence. With respect to GAAP gross margin, these items include, but are not limited to, fair market value write-ups of inventory accounted for under ASC 805 related to future potential transactions, which could materially affect the computation of forward-looking GAAP gross margin, and are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, some of which are outside of the Company's control. With respect to GAAP net income (loss), these items include, but are not limited to, equity-based compensation with respect to future grants and forfeitures, which could materially affect the computation of forward-looking GAAP net income, and are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, some of which are outside of the Company's control. (1) The operating results in the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022 include the activity of Oru, ISLE, and Chubbies post-acquisition. The operating results of ISLE and Chubbies were not included in our financial results in the six month period ended June 30, 2021. (2) This release includes references to non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" later in this release for the definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures presented and a reconciliation of these measures to their closest comparable GAAP measures.

All statements contained in this press release that do not relate to matters of historical fact should be considered forward-looking statements, including without limitation statements regarding our anticipated GAAP and non-GAAP guidance for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "plans," "anticipates," "could," "intends," "targets," "projects," "contemplates," "believes," "estimates," "forecasts," "guidance," "predicts," "potential" or "continue" or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. These statements are neither promises nor guarantees, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following: our ability to manage our future growth effectively; our ability to expand into additional markets; our ability to maintain and strengthen our brand to generate and maintain ongoing demand for our products; our ability to cost-effectively attract new customers and retain our existing customers; our failure to maintain product quality and product performance at an acceptable cost; the impact of product liability and warranty claims and product recalls; the highly competitive market in which we operate; business interruptions resulting from geopolitical actions, natural disasters, or impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; risks associated with our international operations; and problems with, or loss of, our suppliers or an inability to obtain raw materials; and the ability of our stockholders to influence corporate matters. These and other important factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, or other filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements made in this press release. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date the statements are made and are based on information available to Solo Brands at the time those statements are made and/or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. Availability of Information on Solo Brands' Website and Social Media Profiles Investors and others should note that Solo Brands routinely announces material information to investors and the marketplace using SEC filings, press releases, public conference calls, webcasts and the Solo Brands investors website at https://investors.solobrands.com . We also intend to use the social media profiles listed below as a means of disclosing information about us to our customers, investors and the public. While not all of the information that the Company posts to the Solo Brands investors website or to social media profiles is of a material nature, some information could be deemed to be material. Accordingly, the Company encourages investors, the media, and others interested in Solo Brands to review the information that it shares at the "Investors" link located at the top of the page on https://solobrands.com and to regularly follow our social media profiles. Users may automatically receive email alerts and other information about Solo Brands when enrolling an email address by visiting "Investor Email Alerts" in the "Resources" section of Solo Brands investor website at https://investors.solobrands.com . Social Media Profiles: Non-GAAP Financial Measures We report our financial results in accordance with GAAP; however, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of our financial information with useful supplemental information that enables a better comparison of our performance across periods. We use adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin, and adjusted EPS non-GAAP financial measures, because we believe they are useful indicators of our operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as measures of our operating performance and believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful to our investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in industries similar to ours. Our management also uses these non-GAAP measures for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections. None of these non-GAAP measures is a measurement of financial performance under GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a measure of our liquidity or operating performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and are not indicative of net income (loss) from continuing operations as determined under U.S. GAAP. In addition, the exclusion of certain gains or losses in the calculation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual or infrequent as they may recur in the future, nor should it be construed that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations that should be considered before using these measures to evaluate our liquidity or financial performance. Some of these limitations are as follows: These non-GAAP measures exclude certain tax payments that may require a reduction in cash available to us; do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures (including capitalized software developmental costs) or contractual commitments; do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; do not reflect the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt; exclude certain purchase accounting adjustments related to acquisitions; and exclude equity-based compensation expense, which has recently been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense for our business and an important part of our compensation strategy. In addition, other companies may define and calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures differently than us, thereby limiting the usefulness of these non-GAAP financial measures as a comparative tool. Because of these and other limitations, you should consider our non-GAAP measures only as supplemental to other GAAP-based financial performance measures. Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Profit Margin We calculate adjusted gross profit as gross profit excluding the fair value write-up of inventory as a result of the change in control transaction in 2020 and the Oru, ISLE, and Chubbies acquisitions. We calculate adjusted gross profit margin as adjusted gross profit divided by net sales. Adjusted Net Income We calculate adjusted net income as net income (loss) excluding impairment charges, inventory fair value write-up, amortization of intangible assets, incentive unit and equity-based compensation expense, acquisition related costs, business optimization expenses, one-time transaction costs, business expansion expenses, management transition costs, and the tax impact of these adjusting items. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin We calculate adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expenses, adjusted to exclude impairment charges, inventory fair value write-up, incentive unit and equity-based compensation expense, acquisition related costs, business optimization expenses, one-time transaction costs, management transition costs, and business expansion expenses. We calculate adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. Adjusted EPS We calculate adjusted EPS as adjusted net income, as defined above, divided by weighted average diluted shares as calculated under U.S. GAAP. 7 % * The Company analyzed the calculation of earnings per unit for the periods prior to the 2021 reorganization transactions and determined that it resulted in values that would not be meaningful to the users of these consolidated financial statements. Therefore, earnings per unit information has not been presented for the periods ended June 30, 2021. (1) Represents trademark and goodwill impairments recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2022. (2) Represents employee compensation expense associated with equity-based awards. This includes expense associated with the incentive unit awards as well as awards issued on and subsequent to the IPO including options and restricted stock units. (3) Represents the fair market value write-up of inventory accounted for under ASC 805 related to the acquisitions and the 2020 change in control transaction. (4) Represents costs primarily related to recruiting senior level management including a new CFO. (5) Represents expenses that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations, primarily warehouse and employee transition costs associated with the acquisitions. (6) Represents transaction costs primarily related to professional service fees incurred in connection with the IPO and professional service fees incurred for valuations performed in connection with the impairment charges. (7) Represents various start-up and transition costs, including warehouse optimization charges associated with new global headquarters infrastructure with new and expanded distribution facilities in Texas, Pennsylvania, and the Netherlands. (8) Represents costs for expansion into new international and domestic markets. (9) Represents the tax impact of adjustments calculated at the federal statutory rate of 21% less the portion of the tax impact of the adjustments attributable to noncontrolling interests. We calculated the tax impact of the adjusting items in the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022, as we were a limited liability company. We were not subject to corporate income taxes in the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2021. (10) Adjusted Earnings Per Share ("Adjusted EPS") is calculated independently for each component and may not sum to Adjusted EPS due to rounding. 9
