Share:

ATLANTA, Sept. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:HDS), one of the largest industrial distributors in North America, today reported Net sales of $1.4 billion for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 ended July 30, 2017, an increase of $69 million, or 5.4 percent, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2016. 

"In our second quarter of 2017, we stepped up our execution to improve performance. We met our revised Net Sales and Adjusted EBITDA targets for the second quarter and recommitted to our full year guidance. Following the sale of our Waterworks business, we have achieved our targeted capital structure of 2.0x to 3.0x financial leverage and are committed to delivering profitable growth in excess of market," stated Joe DeAngelo, Chairman, President & CEO of HD Supply. 

Gross profit increased $26 million, or 5.1 percent, to $539 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to $513 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Gross profit was 39.9 percent of Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, down approximately 10 basis points from 40.0 percent of Net sales for second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Operating income increased $9 million, or 5.3 percent, to $180 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to $171 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Operating income as a percentage of Net sales was 13.3 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, flat as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Net income increased $344 million to $442 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to $98 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in Net income was primarily due to a $323 million tax benefit within Discontinued Operations to record a deferred tax asset recognizing the outside basis difference in the Waterworks business. Net income per diluted share increased $1.73 to $2.22 for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, as compared to $0.49 for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $5 million, or 2.5 percent, to $208 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to $203 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Net sales was 15.4 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, decreasing approximately 40 basis points from 15.8 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Adjusted net income increased $23 million, or 22.1 percent, to $127 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to $104 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.64 for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, as compared to $0.51 for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. 

As of July 30, 2017, HD Supply's combined liquidity of approximately $590 million was comprised of $67 million in cash and cash equivalents and $523 million of additional available borrowings under HD Supply, Inc.'s ("HDS") senior asset-backed lending facility, based on qualifying inventory and receivables.

There were 20 selling days in both August 2017 and August 2016. 

Subsequent Completion of the Sale of Waterworks

On August 1, 2017, the Company completed the sale of its Waterworks business for gross cash proceeds of $2,500 million, subject to a post-closing working capital adjustment. The Company expects to pay approximately $40 million of transaction costs and recognize a pre-tax gain of approximately $925 million. In connection with the pending sale, the Company recorded a $323 million net deferred tax asset and corresponding tax benefit in discontinued operations during the second quarter of fiscal 2017 in order to recognize the outside basis difference in the Waterworks investment. The Company expects to recognize tax expense of approximately $520 million in discontinued operations in third quarter fiscal 2017 related to the sale of the Waterworks business. This includes an expense of $323 million related to utilizing the deferred tax asset associated with the outside basis difference in the Waterworks subsidiary recorded as an income tax benefit in the second quarter in discontinued operations. The Company estimates that it will utilize approximately $280 million of tax-effected federal and state net operating loss carryforwards as a result of the sale of the Waterworks business.

Subsequent Capital Structure Activities

Repayment of the Senior ABL Facility

On August 1, 2017, HDS repaid all of the outstanding U.S. borrowings on its Senior ABL Facility. Canadian borrowings of $62 million on the Senior ABL Facility remain outstanding.

Amendment of the April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes

On August 25, 2017, HDS entered into an amendment of its 5.75% Senior Unsecured Notes (the "April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes"). The Second Supplemental Indenture amends and supplements the Indenture, dated as of April 11, 2016, as amended and supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of April 11, 2016 (together, the "Indenture"). Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes consented to the Proposed Amendments (as defined below).

The Proposed Amendments (a) amend the definition of "Permitted Payments" contained in the Indenture to permit an additional category of Permitted Payments permitting Restricted Payments (as defined in the Indenture) at any time in an aggregate amount not to exceed (x) $500,000,000 and (y) thereafter, upon full use of such capacity set forth in clause (x), an additional amount, if any, such that, after giving pro forma effect to such Restricted Payment, the Company's Consolidated Leverage Ratio does not exceed 3.00 to 1.00; (b) increase the interest rate for the April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes to 7.00% per annum commencing April 15, 2019, to the extent the April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes remain outstanding after April 15, 2019; (c) amend the definition of "Net Available Cash" contained in the Indenture to provide that proceeds from the sale of the Waterworks business unit consummated on August 1, 2017 (other than proceeds to be applied to redeem the Company's December 2014 First Priority Notes due 2021 as defined below) shall be excluded and accordingly, the Company will not be required to apply the remaining net proceeds in accordance with the provision of the "Sale of Assets" covenant of the Indenture and (d) amend the definition of "Consolidated EBITDA" contained in the Indenture to provide that while the Company may continue to include in the calculation thereof projected cost savings, it may only do so with respect to those realized as a result of actions taken or to be taken in connection with a purchase of assets from, or a sale of assets to, a third party (excluding the Waterworks Sale).

As a result of entering into the Second Supplemental Indenture, the Company paid approximately $15 million in consent fees to holders of the outstanding April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes, which will be capitalized as deferred financing costs and amortized over the expected life of the April 2016 Senior Unsecured Notes.

Amendment of the Term Loan Facility

On August 31, 2017, HDS entered into a Fifth Amendment (the "Fifth Amendment") to the credit agreement governing its existing Term Loan Facility. Pursuant to the Fifth Amendment, HDS amended its existing Term Loan Facility to, among other things, (i) refinance all the outstanding Term B-1 Loans with a new tranche of term loans (the "Term B-3 Loans") in an aggregate principal amount of $535 million, (ii) refinance all the outstanding Term B-2 Loans with a new tranche of term loans (the "Term B-4 Loans") in an aggregate principal amount of $546 million and (iii) amend the definition of "Permitted Payments" contained in the credit agreement to permit an additional category of Permitted Payments permitting Restricted Payments at any time in an aggregate amount not to exceed (x) $500,000,000 and (y) thereafter, upon full use of such capacity set forth in clause (x), an additional amount, if any, such that, after giving pro forma effect to such Restricted Payment, the Company's consolidated leverage ratio does not exceed 3.00 to 1.00.

The Term B-3 Loans bear interest at the applicable margin for borrowings of 2.25% for LIBOR borrowings and 1.25% for base rate borrowings (a reduction of 50 basis points as compared to the Term B-1 Loans). The Term B-4 Loans bear interest at the applicable margin for borrowings of 2.50% for LIBOR borrowings and 1.50% for base rate borrowings (a reduction of 25 basis points as compared to the Term B-2 Loans). The Term B-3 Loans and Term B-4 Loans amortize in equal quarterly installments in aggregate annual amounts equal to 1.00% of the original principal amount beginning December 2017 and will mature on August 13, 2021 and October 17, 2023, respectively.

The Fifth Amendment also provides for a prepayment premium equal to 1.00% of the aggregate principal amount of the applicable Term Loans being prepaid if, on or prior to March 2, 2018, the Company enters into certain repricing transactions.

In connection with the Fifth Amendment, the Company paid approximately $1 million in consent fees and expects to record a modification and extinguishment charge of approximately $3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017.

Redemption of the December 2014 First Priority Notes

On September 1, 2017, HDS used a portion of the net proceeds from the completion of the sale of the Waterworks business, to redeem all of the outstanding $1,250 million aggregate principal of its 5.25% Senior Secured First Priority Notes due 2021 (the "December 2014 First Priority Notes"), for an aggregated redemption price of approximately $1,325 million, including payments of $62 million make-whole premium calculated in accordance with the terms of the indenture as supplemented, governing such notes and pay $14 million of accrued but unpaid interest to the redemption date. The indenture, as supplemented, governing such notes was discharged and the liens securing the December 2014 First Priority notes were released in accordance with the terms of the indenture. As a result of the redemption, the Company expects to report a $73 million loss on extinguishment of debt in the third quarter of fiscal 2017, which includes the $62 million make-whole premium and the write-off of $11 million of unamortized deferred financing costs.

Share Repurchase Programs

As of August 8, 2017, the company completed the repurchase of all $500 million of common stock under the share repurchase program authorized in June 2017, purchasing approximately 15.9 million shares at an average price of $31.37 per share.

On August 27, 2017, the company's Board of Directors authorized it to enter into a new share repurchase program for the repurchase of up to an aggregate $500 million of its common stock in accordance with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Third-Quarter 2017 Outlook

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, Net sales are anticipated to be in the range of $1,320 million and $1,360 million, Adjusted EBITDA1 in the range of $200 million and $212 million and Adjusted net income per diluted share1 in the range of $0.73 and $0.79. Adjusted net income per diluted share range assumes a fully diluted weighted average share count of approximately 187 million. The company will provide further specifics on its outlook during the second-quarter fiscal 2017 earnings conference call and in the earnings call presentation materials. 

Guidance for the full year 2017 is reconfirmed. Net sales are anticipated to be in the range of $5.0 billion and $5.1 billion, Adjusted EBITDA1 in the range of $700 million and $730 million and Adjusted net income per diluted share1 in the range of $2.13 and $2.29. Adjusted net income per diluted share range assumes a fully diluted weighted average share count of approximately 194 million. 

Fiscal 2017 Second-Quarter Conference Call

1 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 third quarter of fiscal 2017 and the full year 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 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 less Income from discontinued operations, net of tax, plus (i) Interest expense and Interest income, net, (ii) Provision 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 less Income 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

Adjusted Net Income

The following table presents a reconciliation of Net income and Income from continuing operations, the most directly comparable financial measures under U.S. GAAP, to Adjusted net income for the periods presented (amounts in millions):

 
  Three Months Ended   Six Months Ended
  July 30, 2017   July 31, 2016   July 30, 2017   July 31, 2016
Net income $ 442   $ 98   $ 527   $ 84
Less income from discontinued operations, net of tax 361   37   388   64
Income from continuing operations 81   61   139   20
Plus: Provision for income taxes 50   41   69   15
Less: Cash income taxes (7)   (5)   (10)   (6)
Plus: Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets (other than software) 3   3   6   6
Plus: Loss on extinguishment of debt (1)     3   115
Plus: Restructuring charges (2)   4     11
Adjusted Net Income $ 127   $ 104   $ 207   $ 161
               
Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding 198,954   201,978   201,010   201,615
Adjusted net income per share – diluted $ 0.64   $ 0.51   $ 1.03   $ 0.80
               

(1) Represents the loss on extinguishment of debt including the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs, original issue discount, and other assets or liabilities associated with such debt.

(2) Represents the costs incurred for strategic alignment of our workforce. These costs include severance, relocation costs and other related costs.

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 third 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.
