“In fiscal 2022, we delivered net sales of $3.8 billion, gross margins above 50% and adjusted EBITDA of more than $500 million amidst a highly dynamic and challenging macro environment,” said Denise Paulonis, president and chief executive officer. “Our teams executed well, navigating inflationary pressures and supply chain headwinds, while remaining focused on serving our customers.”

“As we turn to fiscal 2023, the teams will continue to leverage the omni-channel capabilities and modern retail infrastructure we have built. Additionally, we will be executing against three strategic initiatives that will serve as the foundation for us to inspire a more colorful, confident and welcoming world. We will enhance our customer centricity, including an expanded services ecosystem to support our professional stylists and increased education and expertise to inspire and support all customers; grow our Sally portfolio of high margin owned brands and amplify innovation; and increase the efficiency of our operations. Moreover, we will also advance our ESG and our diversity, inclusion and belonging commitments. These strategic initiatives are designed to build upon our core strengths in hair color and care, and drive long-term financial performance and shareholder value.”

Distribution Center Consolidation and Store Optimization Plan

Over the last several quarters, the Company has been piloting store closures in various markets with the goal of maximizing the value of its large store portfolio and providing a seamless omni-channel experience to its customers. Based on positive sales recapture rates and improved profitability within those markets, the Company is accelerating its store optimization plan, including the closure of approximately 350 stores with the majority closing in December 2022. Most of the store closings will be Sally Beauty locations in the U.S. In addition, the Company will also be optimizing its supply chain by closing two small distribution centers in Oregon and Pennsylvania and transferring the volumes to larger distribution centers, effective in December 2022. As part of this optimization plan, the Company incurred a $45.5 million charge in the fourth quarter of 2022, which includes a $19.4 million non-cash inventory write-down. The expense savings from this optimization plan is expected to be approximately $50 million with an expected benefit of approximately $10 million to adjusted operating earnings for fiscal year 2023.

Long-Term Strategic Initiatives and Outlook

Beginning in fiscal 2023, the Company will be leveraging the modern retail infrastructure it has built in recent years, and focusing on three key strategic initiatives to drive growth and profitability:

  • Enhance our customer centricity, including an expanded services ecosystem that supports professional stylists, and increased education and expertise to inspire and support all customers;
  • Grow high margin owned brands at Sally Beauty and amplify innovation; and
  • Increase the efficiency of operations and optimize our capabilities.

The Company believes these initiatives will support a long-term growth algorithm of low- to mid-single-digit net sales growth, gross margins above 50% and low double-digit operating margins.

Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Operating Results

Fourth quarter consolidated net sales were $962.5 million, a decrease of 2.8% compared to the prior year. Comparable sales were flat to the prior year, and were unfavorably impacted by inflationary pressures that continued to impact consumer behavior and supply chain challenges at Beauty Systems Group. The Company was operating 117 fewer stores at the end of the quarter compared to the prior year. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of 170 basis points on consolidated net sales for the quarter. At constant currency, global e-commerce sales increased 30% compared to the prior year to $90 million or 9.3% of consolidated net sales for the quarter.

Consolidated gross profit for the fourth quarter was $463.5 million compared to $501.0 million in the prior year, a decrease of 7.5%. Consolidated GAAP gross margin was 48.2%, a decrease of 240 basis points compared to 50.6% in the prior year, driven primarily by a non-cash inventory write-down of $19.4 million as a result of the Company’s distribution center consolidation and store optimization plan. Excluding the inventory write-down, Adjusted Gross Margin was 50.1%, a decrease of 60 basis points compared to 50.7% in the prior year, as higher product margin from pricing leverage at Sally Beauty was more than offset by a sales mix shift between Sally Beauty and Beauty Systems Group and higher distribution and freight costs in both segments.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses totaled $397.9 million, up $11.3 million compared to the prior year, driven primarily by increased labor costs, partially offset by lower bonus expense. As a percentage of sales, SG&A expenses were 41.3% compared to 39.0% in the prior year.

GAAP operating earnings and operating margin in the fourth quarter were $39.2 million and 4.1%, compared to $111.2 million and 11.2%, in the prior year. Adjusted Operating Earnings and Operating Margin, excluding the Company’s restructuring efforts and COVID-19 related net expenses, were $83.9 million and 8.7%, compared to $115.8 million and 11.7%, in the prior year.

GAAP net earnings in the fourth quarter were $21.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net earnings of $68.1 million, or $0.59 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted Net Earnings, excluding the Company’s restructuring efforts and COVID-19 related net expenses, were $54.4 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to Adjusted Net Earnings of $73.1 million, or $0.64 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter was $112.4 million, a decrease of 21.6% compared to the prior year, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 11.7%, a decrease of 280 basis points compared to the prior year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $71 million and an outstanding balance of $69 million under its asset-based revolving line of credit. At the end of the quarter, inventory was $936.4 million, up 7.5% versus a year ago. Fourth quarter cash flow from operations was $107.3 million. Capital expenditures in the quarter totaled $32.0 million.

The Company ended the quarter with a net debt leverage ratio of 2.2x.

Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Sally Beauty Supply

  • Segment net sales were $554.0 million in the quarter, a decrease of 5.4% compared to the prior year. The segment had an unfavorable impact of 270 basis points from foreign currency translation on reported sales and operated 110 fewer stores at the end of the quarter compared to the prior year. At constant currency, segment e-commerce sales increased 20% to $33 million or 6.0% of segment net sales for the quarter.
  • Segment comparable sales decreased 1.1% in the fourth quarter. The Sally Beauty businesses in the U.S. and Canada represented 80% of segment net sales for the quarter and had a comparable sales decrease of 2.0%, primarily reflecting inflationary pressures that impacted consumer behavior.
  • At the end of the quarter, net store count was 3,439.
  • GAAP gross margin decreased by 90 basis points to 56.6% compared to the prior year. The decrease was primarily driven by the inventory write-down related to the Company’s store optimization plan. Excluding the inventory write-down, Adjusted Gross Margin increased 60 basis points to 58.3% compared to the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by pricing leverage, partially offset by higher distribution and freight costs.
  • GAAP operating earnings were $80.5 million compared to $105.7 million in the prior year, representing a decrease of 23.8%. GAAP operating margin decreased to 14.5% compared to 18.1% in the prior year.

Beauty Systems Group

  • Segment net sales were $408.5 million in the quarter, an increase of 0.9% compared to the prior year. The segment had an unfavorable impact of 30 basis points on reported sales from foreign currency translation and operated 7 fewer stores at the end of the quarter compared to the prior year. At constant currency, segment e-commerce sales increased 37% to $57 million or 13.9% of segment net sales for the quarter.
  • Segment comparable sales increased 1.5% in the fourth quarter, notwithstanding continued inflationary pressures that impacted salon customers and supply chain challenges.
  • At the end of the quarter, net store count was 1,355.
  • GAAP gross margin decreased 400 basis points to 36.7% in the quarter compared to the prior year, driven primarily by the inventory write-down related to the Company’s distribution center consolidation and store optimization plan, lower product margin from a sales mix shift between stores and full service, and higher distribution and freight costs. Excluding the inventory write-down, Adjusted Gross Margin decreased 180 basis points to 38.9% compared to the prior year.
  • GAAP operating earnings were $32.8 million in the quarter, a decrease of 38.6% compared to $53.4 million in the prior year. GAAP operating margin in the quarter was 8.0% compared to 13.2% in the prior year.
  • At the end of the quarter, there were 718 distributor sales consultants compared to 719 in the prior year.

Fiscal Year 2023 Guidance

We remain encouraged by the rebuilt foundation of the business and are excited about the potential of our new strategic initiatives. As we leverage these strengths, we also expect that the external environment will remain challenging in the nearer term, most notably the inflationary pressure that is negatively impacting consumer purchasing behavior and also driving increased labor costs.

Factoring in the current macro environment and the impact from the Company’s distribution center consolidation and store optimization plan, the Company is providing the following guidance for the full fiscal year 2023:

  • Comparable sales, notwithstanding a notable change in consumer behavior, are expected to increase by low single digits compared to the prior year, driven by growth in key categories, sales transfer from store closures, our expanded Regis distribution and new strategic initiatives;
  • Net sales are expected to decline by low-single digits compared to the prior year. This reflects approximately 150 to 200 basis points of net unfavorable impact due to store closures and expected sales recapture rates from our optimization efforts, and approximately 150 basis points of anticipated impact from foreign exchange headwinds;
  • Gross Margin is expected to remain above 50%; and
  • Adjusted Operating Margin is expected to be in the range of 8.5% and 9.5%, inclusive of investment in our store labor as we lean in to elevating the expertise of our associates to drive our growth in the coming years.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release and the schedules hereto include the following financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures: (1) Adjusted Gross Margin; (2) Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses; (3) Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA Margin; (4) Adjusted Operating Earnings and Operating Margin; (5) Adjusted Net Earnings; (6) Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Share; and (7) Operating Free Cash Flow. We have provided definitions below for these non-GAAP financial measures and have provided tables in the schedules hereto to reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted Gross Margin – We define the measure Adjusted Gross Margin as GAAP gross margin excluding the write-down of COVID-19 related personal protective equipment inventory and the write-down of inventory related to the Company’s distribution center consolidation and store optimization plan for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses – We define the measure Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses as GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses excluding COVID-19 net expenses and other adjustments for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA Margin – We define the measure Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net earnings before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, income taxes, share-based compensation, costs related to the Company’s restructuring plans, COVID-19 related net expenses and other adjustments for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted Operating Earnings and Operating Margin – Adjusted operating earnings are GAAP operating earnings that exclude costs related to the Company’s restructuring plans, net expenses related to COVID-19 and other adjustments for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Operating Margin is Adjusted Operating Earnings as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted Net Earnings – Adjusted net earnings is GAAP net earnings that exclude tax-effected costs related to the Company’s restructuring plans, tax-effected net expenses related to COVID-19, tax-effected expenses related to the loss on debt extinguishment, and tax-effected other adjustments for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Share – Adjusted diluted net earnings per share is GAAP diluted earnings per share that exclude tax-effected costs related to the Company’s restructuring plans, tax-effected net expenses related to COVID-19, tax-effected expenses related to the loss on debt extinguishment and tax-effected other adjustments for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Operating Free Cash Flow – We define the measure Operating Free Cash Flow as GAAP net cash provided by operating activities less payments for capital expenditures (net). We believe Operating Free Cash Flow is an important liquidity measure that provides useful information to investors about the amount of cash generated from operations after taking into account payments for capital expenditures (net).

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide valuable information regarding our earnings and business trends by excluding specific items that we believe are not indicative of the ongoing operating results of our businesses; providing a useful way for investors to make a comparison of our performance over time and against other companies in our industry.

We have provided these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to our GAAP financial measures and believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with additional meaningful financial information regarding our operating performance and cash flows. Our management and Board of Directors also use these non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to evaluate our businesses and the performance of management, including the determination of performance-based compensation, to make operating and strategic decisions, and to allocate financial resources. We believe that these non-GAAP measures also provide meaningful information for investors and securities analysts to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
