“We are pleased to begin the new fiscal year with solid financial results, highlighted by comparable sales growth of 6.1%, strong gross margin of 51.0% and significantly improved profitability,” said Denise Paulonis, president and chief executive officer. “Our first quarter performance reflects strong demand for our core categories of color and care among both the DIY enthusiast and professional stylist and also demonstrated our ability to navigate and effectively manage the dynamic macro supply chain environment.

“We are proud of our teams for their strong operational execution and ongoing commitment to prioritize our Sally and BSG customers. We remain focused on our roadmap for fiscal 2022, which includes leveraging our digital platform, driving loyalty and personalization, delivering product innovation and advancing our supply chain.

Fiscal 2022 First Quarter Operating Results

First quarter consolidated net sales were $980.3 million, an increase of 4.7% compared to the prior year, with a comparable sales increase of 6.1%. The Company was operating 136 fewer stores at the end of the quarter compared to the prior year. Foreign currency translation had no impact on consolidated net sales for the quarter. Global e-commerce sales were $81 million or 8.3% of net sales for the quarter.

Consolidated gross profit for the first quarter was $500.1 million compared to $470.7 million in the prior year, an increase of 6.2%. Consolidated gross margin was 51.0%, an increase of 70 basis points compared to 50.3% in the prior year, primarily reflecting higher product margins at both Sally Beauty and Beauty Systems Group, partially offset by higher distribution and freight costs.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses totaled $386.3 million for the quarter, up $20.1 million compared to the prior year, driven primarily by increased labor costs, increased expenses from international markets related to re-opening and planned marketing investments. As a percentage of sales, SG&A expenses were 39.4% compared to 39.1% in the prior year.

GAAP operating earnings and operating margin in the first quarter were $112.8 million and 11.5%, compared to $104.3 million and 11.1%, in the prior year. Adjusted Operating Earnings and Operating Margin, excluding the Company’s previously announced restructuring efforts, COVID-19 related net expenses and other adjustments in both quarters, were $116.6 million and 11.9%, compared to $104.5 million and 11.2%, in the prior year.

GAAP net earnings in the first quarter were $68.8 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net earnings of $57.2 million, or $0.50 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted Net Earnings were $71.8 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to Adjusted Net Earnings of $57.4 million, or $0.50 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter was $145.0 million, an increase of 8.4% compared to the prior year, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 14.8%, an increase of 50 basis points compared to the prior year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of December 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $298 million and no borrowings outstanding under its asset-based revolving line of credit. At the end of the quarter, inventory was approximately $1 billion, up 12% versus a year ago, as inventory levels increased as part of the Company’s risk mitigation strategy to protect against potential, continued supply chain disruptions. First quarter cash flow from operations was a use of cash of $5.7 million, driven by the expected carryover of working capital requirements from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and the planned increase in inventory during the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as part of the risk mitigation strategy. Capital expenditures in the quarter totaled $26.4 million.

In the first quarter, the Company used excess cash to repurchase 3.7 million shares at an aggregate cost of $75.0 million. Additionally, the Company ended the quarter with a net debt leverage ratio of 1.87x.

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 Selling, General and Administrative Expenses; (2) Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA Margin; (3) Adjusted Operating Earnings and Operating Margin; (4) Adjusted Net Earnings; (5) Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Share; and (6) 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 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 previously announced 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 previously announced 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 previously announced restructuring plans, tax-effected net expenses related to COVID-19 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 previously announced restructuring plans, tax-effected net expenses related to COVID-19 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.
