Share Repurchase Program Authorization

On June 3, 2017, the Board of Directors of HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (the "company") authorized the company to enter into a share repurchase program for the repurchase of up to an aggregate amount of $500 million of the company's common stock in accordance with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act").  

The company will conduct repurchases under the program in the open market and through broker negotiated purchases in compliance with Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act, and subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements, and other relevant factors. The share repurchases will be funded from the company's available cash balances. This share repurchase program does not obligate the company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be terminated at any time at the company's discretion. The company had 202,659,525 shares of common stock outstanding as of June 2, 2017.

Capital Structure Activities

On April 5, 2017, HD Supply, Inc. amended its existing ABL Credit Agreement, which, among other things, reduced the applicable margin for borrowings by 25 basis points, reduced commitment fees, and extended the maturity date of the Senior ABL Facility until April 5, 2022. As a result, the company incurred a $1 million loss on extinguishment of debt for write-offs of unamortized deferred financing costs.

On April 18, 2017, the company used cash flow from operations to repay $100 million aggregate principal of HD Supply, Inc.'s Term B-1 Loans. As a result, the company incurred a $2 million loss on extinguishment of debt, which includes write-offs of unamortized original issue discount and unamortized deferred financing costs for $1 million each.

Second-Quarter 2017 Outlook

The second quarter 2017 outlook excludes Waterworks. For the second quarter 2017, Net sales are anticipated to be in the range of $1,325 million and $1,365 million, Adjusted EBITDA[2] in the range of $200 million and $210 million and Adjusted net income per diluted share2 in the range of $0.60 and $0.65.  Adjusted net income per diluted share range assumes a fully diluted weighted average share count of approximately 203 million.  The company will provide further specifics on its outlook during the first-quarter fiscal 2017 earnings conference call and in the earnings call presentation materials. 

Fiscal 2017 First-Quarter Conference Call

As previously announced, HD Supply will hold a conference call on Tuesday June 6th, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) to discuss its first-quarter fiscal 2017 results and the Waterworks transaction overview.  The conference call and presentation materials can be accessed via webcast by logging on from the Investor Relations section of the company's Web site at hdsupply.com.

A number of important factors could cause actual events to differ materially from those contained in or implied by the forward-looking statements, including risks related to whether and when we are able to satisfy the conditions to the completion of the sale of the Waterworks business, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals, our ability to complete  the sale of the Waterworks business generally, and  those "Risk factors" in our annual report on Form 10-K, for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2017, filed on March 14, 2017, our quarterly report on Form 10-Q, for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2017, filed on June 6, 2017 and those described from time to time in our, and HD Supply, Inc.'s, other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which can be found at the SEC's website www.sec.gov.

_____________________

1 Net Debt: Total of Long Term debt and Current installments of long-term debt ($3,730), less cash and cash equivalents ($70). LTM denotes last twelve months.

2 No reconciliation of the forecasted range for Adjusted EBITDA to Net income or Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted net income per diluted share to Net income per diluted share or Income from Continuing Operations per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 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.

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 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 loss on extinguishment of debt, 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 loss on extinguishment of debt, 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 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.

Adjusted EBITDA

The following table presents a reconciliation of Net income (loss) and Income (loss) from Continuing Operations, the most directly comparable financial measures under GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented (amounts in millions):

Results Revised for Discontinued Operations

On June 4, 2017, HD Supply entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Waterworks business, a provider of water and wastewater transmission products in the non-residential and residential markets. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of fiscal 2017. In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 205-20, "Discontinued Operations," the results of the Waterworks business will be reflected as a discontinued operation beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. 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 the first quarter of fiscal 2017, fiscal 2016, and fiscal 2015, revised to reflect the Waterworks operations as discontinued operations.
