Share:
  • Net Sales increased 7 percent to $1,781 million ($1,844 million including Interior Solutions)
  • Operating Income improved 14 percent to $178 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 14 percent to $215 million

ATLANTA, June 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDS), one of the largest industrial distributors in North America, today reported Net sales of $1.8 billion for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 ended May 1, 2016, an increase of $121 million, or 7.3 percent, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2015.  The company believes its sales performance represents growth of approximately 400 basis points in excess of its market growth estimate.

"I am extremely pleased with the team's performance in the first-quarter of 2016. We delivered 7 percent net sales growth, 14 percent Adjusted EBITDA growth and 104 percent Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share growth despite a challenging uncontrollable environment," stated Joe DeAngelo, Chairman and CEO of HD Supply. "We focused on what we could control and delivered solid profitable growth, operating leverage and free cash flow."

Gross profit increased $50 million, or 8.9 percent, to $609 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $559 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Gross profit was 34.2 percent of Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, up approximately 50 basis points from 33.7 percent of Net sales for first quarter of fiscal of 2015.

Operating income increased $22 million, or 14.1 percent, to $178 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $156 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Operating income as a percentage of Net sales was 10.0 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, up approximately 60 basis points from 9.4 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Net income decreased $256 million to a Net loss of $14 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $242 million Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. The decrease in Net income (loss) was due to a $115 million loss incurred as a result of the extinguishment of outstanding debt in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and a $189 million tax benefit in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 as a result of IRS and state audit settlements.  Net loss per diluted share was $0.07 for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, as compared to a Net income per diluted share of $1.21 for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $26 million, or 13.8 percent, to $215 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $189 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Net sales was 12.1 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, up approximately 70 basis points from 11.4 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Adjusted net income increased $52 million to $103 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 as compared to $51 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.  Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.51 for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, as compared to $0.25 for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. 

As of May 1, 2016, HD Supply's combined liquidity of approximately $1,268 million was comprised of $203 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1,065 million of additional available borrowings under HD Supply, Inc.'s senior asset-backed lending facility, based on qualifying inventory and receivables.

First-Quarter Monthly Sales Performance

Net sales for February, March and April of fiscal 2016 were $502 million, $550 million and $729 million, respectively.  There were 20 selling days in February, 20 selling days in March and 25 selling days in April.  Average year-over-year daily sales growth for February, March and April of fiscal 2016 was 9.2 percent, 7.9 percent and 5.6 percent, respectively.

Sale of Interior Solutions

In April 2016, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Interior Solutions business unit, formerly known as Creative Touch Interiors.  The transaction closed on May 31, 2016.  In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 205-20, "Discontinued Operations," the results of Interior Solutions are classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Refinancing Activities

On April 11, 2016, HD Supply, Inc. issued $1,000 million aggregate principal amount of 5.75% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2024. On April 27, 2016, HD Supply Inc. used the proceeds from the 5.75% Senior Unsecured Notes issuance, together, with available cash, to redeem all of its outstanding $1,000 million aggregate principal amount of 11.5% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2020. As a result, we incurred a $115 million loss on extinguishment of the debt, which includes a $106 million make-whole premium and a $9 million write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs. The transactions reduce future interest expense by approximately $58 million annually.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the ratio of Net debt1 to Adjusted EBITDA was 4.5 times.

Preliminary May Sales Results

Preliminary Net sales in May were $609 million, which represents year-over-year average daily sales growth of 4 percent.  May performance was negatively impacted by approximately 100 basis points associated with weather.  Preliminary May year-over-year average daily sales growth by business was Facilities Maintenance 0.4 percent, Waterworks 4.6 percent, and Construction & Industrial 6.6 percent.  There were 20 selling days in May 2016 and 19 selling days in May 2015. 

Second-Quarter 2016 Outlook

Despite the slow start to the second quarter, the company affirms its expectations of 300 basis points in excess of market and 1.5x to 2.0x operating leverage for fiscal year 2016.  Adjusted for Interior Solutions reflected as discontinued operations, the company anticipates Net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 to be in the range of $2,000 million to $2,050 million, Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $270 million to $280 million, and Adjusted net income per diluted share in the range of $0.85 to $0.90. The second quarter fiscal 2016 Adjusted net income per diluted share range assumes a fully diluted weighted average share count of 202 million.

The company will provide further specifics on its end market, the second quarter 2016 outlook, and the fiscal year 2016 outlook during the first quarter fiscal 2016 earnings conference call and in the earnings call presentation materials.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income are not recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to Net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance. We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income because each is a primary measure used by management to evaluate operating performance. In addition, we present Adjusted net income (loss) to measure our overall profitability as we believe it is an important measure of our performance. We believe the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income enhances investors' overall understanding of the financial performance of our business.

Adjusted EBITDA is based on "Consolidated EBITDA," a measure which is defined in our senior credit facilities and used in calculating financial ratios in several material debt covenants. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Net income (loss) less Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, plus (i) Interest expense and Interest income, net, (ii) Provision (benefit) for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization and further adjusted to exclude non-cash items and certain other adjustments to Consolidated Net Income permitted in calculating Consolidated EBITDA under our senior credit facilities.

Adjusted net income is defined as Net income (loss) less Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, further adjusted for certain non-cash, non-recurring or unusual items, net of tax.

We compensate for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results alone. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analyzing our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our income tax expenses or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; and although depreciation and amortization charges are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.

No reconciliation of the forecasted range for Adjusted EBITDA to Net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share to Net income per diluted share for the first quarter or second quarter of fiscal 2016 is included in this press release because we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the GAAP measure without unreasonable efforts. In addition, the company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

Results Revised for Discontinued Operations

In April 2016, HD Supply entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Interior Solutions business, a provider of turnkey supply and installation services for multiple interior finish options. The transaction was completed on May 31, 2016. In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 205-20, "Discontinued Operations," the results of the Interior Solutions business are reflected as a discontinued operation beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The presentation of discontinued operations includes revenue and expenses of the discontinued operations, net of tax, as one line item on the Consolidated Statements of Operations for all periods presented.

The following tables present HD Supply's quarterly results of operations for fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2014, revised to reflect the Interior Solutions operations as discontinued operations. These financial statements also include the previous revisions reflecting Power Solutions and Hardware Solutions as discontinued operations, as noted in our Fiscal 2015 Form 10-K (amounts in millions, except share and per share amounts, unaudited):
