HD Supply Holdings, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2018 Full-Year and Fourth-Quarter Results

ATLANTA, March 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDS), one of the largest industrial distributors in North America, today reported Net sales of $6.0 billion in fiscal 2018 ended February 3, 2019, an increase of $926 million, or 18.1 percent, as compared to fiscal 2017.  Fiscal 2018 consisted of 53 weeks, as compared to 52 weeks in fiscal 2017.  Organic sales growth, net of the change in selling days, was 9.2 percent in fiscal 2018, as compared to fiscal 2017.

"I couldn’t be more proud of the team’s performance in 2018.  We delivered strong organic growth throughout the year, seamlessly integrated the A.H. Harris business and repurchased 15.5 million shares of common stock," stated Joe DeAngelo, Chairman and CEO of HD Supply. "I’d like to thank our associates for the exceptional service they provide to our customers every day."

Gross profit increased $342 million, or 16.8 percent, to $2,375 million in fiscal 2018, as compared to $2,033 million in fiscal 2017.  Gross profit was 39.3 percent of Net sales in fiscal 2018, a decrease of approximately 40 basis points from 39.7 percent in fiscal 2017.

Net income decreased $576 million to $394 million in fiscal 2018, as compared to $970 million in fiscal 2017. The decrease in Net income was impacted by a fiscal 2017 $732 million gain, net of $197 million of tax, on the sale of our Waterworks business unit, partially offset by a $72 million non-cash charge as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Net income per diluted share was $2.17 in fiscal 2018, as compared to $5.01 in fiscal 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $140 million, or 19.2 percent, to $871 million in fiscal 2018, as compared to $731 million in fiscal 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA was 14.4 percent of Net sales in fiscal 2018, an increase of approximately 10 basis points from 14.3 percent in fiscal 2017.  The 53rd week in fiscal 2018 added approximately $13 million of Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted net income increased $172 million, or 38.5 percent, to $619 million in fiscal 2018, as compared to $447 million in fiscal 2017.  Adjusted net income per diluted share increased $1.09, or 47.2 percent, to $3.40 in fiscal 2018, as compared to $2.31 in fiscal 2017.  The 53rd week in fiscal 2018 added approximately $0.07 of Adjusted net income per diluted share.

Fourth-Quarter Monthly Sales Performance

On an organic basis, average year-over-year daily sales growth for November, December, and January was 6.8 percent, 9.5 percent, and 4.3 percent, respectively.  As expected, holiday timing unfavorably affected January sales, as Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve fell on Mondays during January of fiscal 2018 as compared to Sundays during January of fiscal 2017.

Preliminary February Sales Results

Preliminary Net sales in February of fiscal 2019 were approximately $423 million, which represents year-over-year average daily sales growth of approximately 8.1 percent (2.2 percent on an organic basis).  Preliminary February year-over-year average daily sales growth by business segment was approximately 6.0 percent for Facilities Maintenance and approximately 10.5 percent (a decline of 2.4 percent on an organic basis) for Construction & Industrial.  There were 20 selling days in both February of fiscal 2019 and February of fiscal 2018.  February of fiscal 2019 sales were unfavorably impacted by inclement winter weather and unusually wet weather, particularly in our Construction & Industrial business on the West Coast.

Fiscal Year 2019 and First-Quarter 2019 Outlook

In fiscal year 2019, the company estimates end market growth of approximately 2-3 percent.

For first quarter 2019, the company anticipates Net sales to be in the range of $1,465 million to $1,515 million, Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $192 million to $207 million, and Adjusted net income per diluted share in the range of $0.75 to $0.84.  The first quarter 2019 Adjusted net income per diluted share range assumes a fully diluted weighted average share count of 171 million.  At the mid-point of the ranges, our first quarter 2019 Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA translate into approximately 7 percent growth and 5 percent growth, respectively, versus prior year.

For full-year fiscal 2019, Net sales are anticipated to be in the range of $6,300 million and $6,450 million, Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $900 million and $950 million, and Adjusted net income per diluted share in the range of $3.52 and $3.81.  The full-year fiscal 2019 Adjusted net income per diluted share range assumes a fully diluted weighted average share count of approximately 171 million. At the mid-point of the ranges, and net of the change in selling days, our full-year fiscal 2019 Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA translate into approximately 7 percent growth and 8 percent growth, respectively, versus prior year.

The company will provide further specifics on its end markets, the first quarter 2019 outlook and the full-year fiscal 2019 outlook during the fourth-quarter 2018 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 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 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 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.

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 first-quarter 2019 and full-year fiscal 2019 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.
