Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/206904436/composite FND +0.99% (“We,” “Our,” the “Company,” or “Floor & Decor”) announces its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, which ended March 26, 2020.
Tom Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We remain committed to supporting our customers and associates as we continue to navigate the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Floor & Decor continues to make the best decisions we can with two goals in mind: maintaining a safe shopping environment for our associates and customers and serving the customers who rely on our products to complete their projects and support their businesses. We are pleased that our first quarter fiscal 2020 adjusted earnings met our expectations, considering we were dealing with the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced us to limit our store operations, and in some cases close stores. Prior to shifting to our curbside pickup model, our quarter-to-date comparable store sales were up approximately 6.1% from last year. Our curbside pickup model closely aligns with CDC safety protocols, including social distancing.”
Mr. Taylor continued, “It has been inspiring to see how our store and store support associates have rallied together to face the unique challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which speaks to the strong culture of our organization. Their tireless and creative efforts have enabled us to continue to serve our customers safely, including our professional customers who operate small businesses. We are leveraging the strength of our e-commerce platform and call center during these challenging times. We have also quickly taken substantial measures to lower expenses during this period with an emphasis on not impacting our customer-facing operations. We are fortunate to have a strong business model, leadership team, balance sheet, and access to liquidity. We have been operating our curbside model successfully since late March, and in certain markets have begun to reopen our stores to our professional customers and the public in accordance with current guidelines from health authorities. We will continue to adhere to guidelines and recommendations from health authorities. We look forward to returning to full store operations as soon as local conditions permit.”

The COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on Floor & Decor’s Business Outlook: There is significant uncertainty about the duration and extent of the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on us, our customers, suppliers, and other business partners. We are monitoring the situation closely with regards to our associates, customers, business partners and supply chain. Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty it has caused, it is impossible to predict with precision the pandemic’s cumulative impact on our future financial results, however depending on the duration and extent of the pandemic, our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows in 2020 are likely to be negatively impacted. As such, we are withdrawing our fiscal 2020 sales and earnings outlook, which were provided on February 20, 2020.

Comparable Store Sales
Comparable store sales refer to period-over-period comparisons of our net sales among the comparable store base and is based on when the customer obtains control of the product, which is typically at the time of sale. A store is included in the comparable store sales calculation on the first day of the thirteenth full fiscal month following a store’s opening, which is when we believe comparability has been achieved. Since our e-commerce sales are fulfilled by individual stores, they are included in comparable store sales only to the extent the fulfilling store meets the above mentioned store criteria. Changes in our comparable store sales between two periods are based on net sales for stores that were in operation during both of the two periods. Any change in square footage of an existing comparable store, including remodels and relocations, does not eliminate that store from inclusion in the calculation of comparable store sales. Stores that are closed temporarily and relocated within their primary trade areas are included in comparable store sales. Additionally, any stores that were closed during the current or prior fiscal year are excluded from the definition of comparable stores.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (which are shown in the reconciliations below) are presented as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). We define Adjusted net income as net income adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance and the tax effect related to those items. We define Adjusted diluted EPS as Adjusted net income divided by weighted average shares outstanding. We define EBITDA as net income before interest, loss on early extinguishment of debt, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, loss on early extinguishment of debt, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance. Reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are set forth in the tables below.
Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are key metrics used by management and our board of directors to assess our financial performance and enterprise value. We believe that Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful measures, as they eliminate certain items that are not indicative of our core operating performance and facilitate a comparison of our core operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a basis to determine covenant compliance with respect to our credit facilities, to supplement GAAP measures of performance to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, and to compare our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by analysts, investors and other interested parties as performance measures to evaluate companies in our industry.
Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures of our financial performance and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or diluted EPS as a measure of financial performance, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP and they should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Additionally, Adjusted net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of liquidity or free cash flow for management's discretionary use. In addition, these non-GAAP measures exclude certain non-recurring and other charges. Each of these non-GAAP measures has its limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. In evaluating Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we will incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the items eliminated in the adjustments made to determine Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, such as stock compensation expense, loss on asset impairments and disposals, and other adjustments. Our presentation of Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that our future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Definitions and calculations of Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differ among companies in the retail industry, and therefore Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA disclosed by us may not be comparable to the metrics disclosed by other companies.
