Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

MIDVALE, Utah, May 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. ("Sportsman's" or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:SPWH) today announced financial results for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2016.

For the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2016:

  • Net sales increased by 9.0% to $151.6 million from $139.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Same store sales decreased by 2.2% over the same period.
  • Income from operations increased to $2.4 million from $1.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Adjusted income from operations, which excludes expenses related to the Company’s secondary offering in April 2016 (see “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures”), increased to $2.5 million as compared to $1.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.
  • The Company opened three new stores in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and ended the quarter with 67 stores in 20 states, a unit increase of 17.5% from the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
  • Interest expense increased to $3.6 million from $3.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.
  • Net income was $0.3 million compared to a net loss of ($1.4) million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Adjusted net loss, which excludes secondary offering expenses as well as prior-year tax credits (see “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures”), was ($0.1) million compared to adjusted net loss of ($1.4) million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.01 compared to diluted loss per share of ($0.03) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Adjusted diluted loss per share (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures"), was ($0.00) compared to adjusted diluted loss per share of ($0.03) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $7.4 million compared to $5.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

John Schaefer, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are pleased with our first quarter revenue performance which, when adjusting for a revision in revenue presentation, was within our guidance. Our adjusted earnings per share also came in within our guidance range, continuing our consistent track record of meeting or exceeding our outlook. Once again, our company’s operating discipline and local market focus enabled us to quickly adapt to changing market conditions, including both the continued strength in firearms as well as the continued weather headwinds which impacted performance in our apparel areas, demonstrating the strength of our business model and our execution on an everyday basis.”

Mr. Schaefer continued, “While we have changed our presentation as it relates to hunting and fishing license sales from a gross revenue basis to a net revenue basis, this revision has had no impact on our gross margin dollars and net income. We are adjusting our annual sales guidance to conform to this revision in revenue presentation.”

Balance sheet highlights as of April 30, 2016:

  • Total debt: $198.6 million compared to $180.3 million at the end of fiscal year 2015. The $198.6 million of total debt as of April 30, 2016 consists of $63.3 million outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility and $135.3 million outstanding under the term loan, net of unamortized discount and debt issuance costs.
  • Total liquidity (cash plus $49.6 million of availability on revolving credit facility): $52.0 million

Second Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook:

The Company has historically presented the sales of state fish and game licenses, duck stamps, and state government-mandated firearm background checks in net sales and cost of goods sold under the gross method. The Company’s management determined that the proper presentation for these transactions is under the net method, thereby recognizing only the commission received in net sales for acting as the agent under the principal versus agent model. This revision does not have any impact upon gross profit, net income or earnings per share. As a result of the revision, the Company has updated its sales outlook to conform to the net presentation.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, net sales are expected to be in the range of $178.0 million to $183.0 million based on same store sales change in the range of (1.0%) to 1.0% compared to the corresponding period of fiscal year 2015. Net income is expected to be in the range of $6.5 million to $7.2 million, with diluted earnings per share of $0.15 to $0.17 on approximately 42.6 million estimated weighted average common shares outstanding.

For fiscal 2016, net sales are expected to be in the range of $770.0 million to $790.0 million based on opening eleven new stores for the full year and same store sales change in the range of 0.0% to 2.0% compared to fiscal year 2015. The Company reaffirms its previously provided annual guidance of adjusted net income in the range of $27.5 million to $31.1 million, with adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.65 to $0.73 (see “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures”), on approximately 42.5 million estimated weighted average common shares outstanding.

Conference Call Information:

A conference call to discuss first quarter 2016 financial results is scheduled for today, May 24, 2016, at 4:30 PM Eastern Time. The conference call will be webcast and may be accessed via the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at www.sportsmanswarehouse.com.

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 income from operations, adjusted net loss, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) 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, but are not limited to, our outlook for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2016. 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-K for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2016 which we filed with the SEC on March 24, 2016 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.
