Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

MIDVALE, Utah, Sept. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPWH) ("Sportsman's" or the "Company") today announced financial results for the thirteen weeks ended August 2, 2014.

For the thirteen weeks ended August 2, 2014:

  • Net sales increased by 2.3% to $159.5 million from $155.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Same store sales decreased by 6.1%, primarily as a result of the decline in demand for firearms and ammunition.
  • Income from operations decreased to $12.3 million from $16.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • The Company opened four new stores in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and ended the quarter with 54 stores in 18 states, a unit increase of 17.4% from the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Interest expense increased to $4.1 million from $3.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Net income was $5.1 million compared to $7.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.12 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.23 in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Adjusted diluted earnings per share (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures") were $0.12 compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.18 in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $16.0 million compared to $17.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

John Schaefer, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are pleased with our second quarter results which came in better than our expectations, driven by strong results from our categories outside of hunting and solid new store performance."

Mr. Schaefer added: "Industry dynamics suggest potential stabilization of the hunting category as we enter the fall hunting season. We continue to see significant opportunities to capture additional share of the outdoor sporting goods market given the fragmented nature of the industry and our unique positioning and value proposition. We remain excited about the many opportunities that we have to grow the company and continue to expand the Sportsman's Warehouse brand."

For the twenty-six weeks ended August 2, 2014:

  • Net sales decreased by 0.2% to $291.9 million from $292.4 million in the first half of fiscal 2013. Same store sales decreased by 11.6%, primarily as a result of the decline in demand for firearms and ammunition.
  • Income from operations decreased to $12.1 million from $26.7 million in the first half of fiscal 2013. Adjusted income from operations, which excludes expenses related to bonuses paid as a result of the successful completion of our initial public offering ("IPO") in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures"), was $14.3 million as compared to $26.7 million in the first half of fiscal 2013.
  • The Company opened seven new stores in the first half of fiscal 2014.
  • Interest expense increased to $9.4 million from $6.6 million in the first half of fiscal 2013.
  • Net income was $1.7 million compared to $12.1 million in the first half of fiscal 2013. Adjusted net income, which excludes expenses related to the IPO bonuses in the first quarter of 2014, net of taxes (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures"), was $3.0 million compared to adjusted net income of $12.1 million for the first half of fiscal 2013.
  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.04 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.36 in the first half of fiscal 2013. Adjusted diluted earnings per share (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures") were $0.07 compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.29 in the first half of fiscal 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $22.8 million compared to $32.3 million in the first half of fiscal 2013.

Balance sheet highlights as of August 2, 2014:

Net proceeds of $3.0 million from the underwriter's partial exercise of the over-allotment option related to the Company's IPO in April 2014 have been included in the Company's financial statements for the quarter ended August 2, 2014, as this exercise took place during the Company's fiscal second quarter.

Third Quarter and Fiscal 2014 Outlook:

For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, net sales are expected to be in the range of $183.0 million to $188.0 million based on the opening of one new store on August 16, 2014 and a decrease in same store sales from the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 in the range of 4.0% to 6.0%. Net income is expected to be in the range of $7.8 million to $8.6 million, with diluted earnings per share of $0.19 to $0.20 on a weighted average of approximately 42.0 million estimated common shares outstanding.

For fiscal 2014, net sales are expected to be in the range of $665.0 million to $675.0 million based on opening eight new stores for the full year and a decrease in same store sales from fiscal year 2013 in the range of 6.0% to 8.0%. Net income is expected to be in the range of $18.2 million to $20.3 million, with diluted earnings per share of $0.43 to $0.48 (which includes the impact of $1.4 million in expenses related to IPO bonuses, net of taxes) on approximately 42.0 million estimated weighted average common shares outstanding. Excluding $1.4 million, or $0.04 per adjusted diluted share, in expenses related to the IPO bonuses, adjusted net income for fiscal 2014 is expected to be in the range of $19.6 million to $21.7 million, or $0.47 to $0.52 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 42.0 million.

Non-GAAP Information

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"): adjusted (loss) income from operations, adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA. The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures under "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures" in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company's business and facilitate a more meaningful comparison of its diluted income per share and actual results on a period-over-period basis. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company's industry may calculate these items differently than it does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements in this release include our expectations for growth, long-term goals, the potential stabilization of the hunting category and outlook for the third quarter and full fiscal year 2014. Investors can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as "continue," "expect," "may," "opportunity" "plan," "future" "ahead" and similar terms and phrases. The Company cannot assure investors that future developments affecting the Company will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to risks relating to the Company's retail-based business model, general economic conditions and consumer spending, the Company's concentration of stores in the Western United States, competition in the outdoor activities and sporting goods market, changes in consumer demands, the company's expansion into new markets and planned growth, current and future government regulations, risks related to the Company's continued retention of its key management, the Company's distribution center, quality or safety concerns about the Company's merchandise, events that may affect the Company's vendors, trade restrictions, and other factors that are set forth in the Company's filings with the SEC, including under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended May 3, 2014 filed with the SEC on June 11, 2014 and our other public filings made with the SEC and available at www.sec.gov. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Company's assumptions prove incorrect, the Company's actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this release speaks only as of the date on which the Company makes it. Factors or events that could cause the Company's actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by any applicable securities laws.
