HARRISBURG, Pa., March 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ollie's Bargain Outlet Holdings, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/208674659/composite OLLI -0.27% today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year fiscal 2019.

Fourth Quarter Summary:

  • Total net sales increased 7.2% to $422.4 million.

  • Comparable store sales decreased 4.9% from a 5.4% increase in the prior year.

  • The Company ended the year with a total of 345 stores in 25 states, a 13.9% year-over-year increase in store count.

  • Operating income increased 4.3% to $64.6 million. Adjusted operating income [(1)] increased 3.6% to $64.1 million.

  • Net income increased 0.8% to $50.3 million and net income per diluted share increased 1.3% to $0.77.

  • Adjusted net income [(1)] increased 3.6% to $48.7 million and adjusted net income per diluted share [(1)] increased 4.2% to $0.74.

  • Adjusted EBITDA [(1)] increased 2.4% to $69.3 million.

John Swygert, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "In response to the coronavirus outbreak, our first priority is to ensure the safety of our team members and our customers. Currently, our stores remain open and our teams are working hard to serve our customers. As consumer buying behavior has shifted towards essential products, we are leveraging the agility of our buying team to hone in on these categories and to offer great deals. With the uncertainty in the environment, we have seen increased sales pressure in recent days, and, as such, we will not be providing fiscal 2020 guidance at this time. We are in a strong financial position, with no debt, and will continue to respond to ongoing changes in the environment by maintaining cost controls and managing our cash. We remain confident in the long-term fundamentals of our business model and, once we emerge from this crisis, we expect to once again deliver on our long-term growth algorithm."

Mr. Swygert continued, "The fourth quarter proved to be a more challenging sales period than we had anticipated. Our significant investment in toys impacted the performance of other important merchandise categories. Had we been more balanced in our merchandise assortment, and had a longer holiday season, we believe we would have delivered sales more in line with our expectations. However, we successfully managed our gross margin and controlled our expenses in the period despite the softer than expected sales."

"New stores are the primary driver of our growth, and I'm pleased to report that we are increasing the number of stores we believe we can support on a national scale to 1,050, as indicated by an updated third-party feasibility study," added Mr. Swygert.

Fiscal Year Summary:

  • Total net sales increased 13.4% to $1.408 billion.

  • Comparable store sales decreased 2.1% from a 4.2% increase in the prior year.

  • Operating income increased 6.0% to $171.9 million. Adjusted operating income [(1)] increased 5.4% to $170.8 million.

  • Net income increased 4.5% to $141.1 million and net income per diluted share increased 4.4% to $2.14.

  • Adjusted net income [(1)] increased 7.1% to $129.1 million and adjusted net income per diluted share [(1)] increased 7.1% to $1.96.

  • Adjusted EBITDA [(1)] increased 6.7% to $196.0 million.

Fourth Quarter Results

Net sales totaled $422.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, an increase of 7.2% compared with net sales of $393.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The increase in net sales was largely driven by strong new store performance from the 42 stores opened in fiscal 2019, including 14 former Toys R Us locations. Comparable store sales decreased 4.9%, following a 5.4% increase in the same period last year. The comparable store sales decrease was partially due to the Company's significant investment in its toy category, which adversely impacted the performance of other merchandise categories. Sales were also impacted by a less favorable holiday shopping calendar, with six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Gross profit increased 5.6% to $165.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with $156.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Gross margin decreased 60 basis points to 39.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 from 39.8% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The decrease in gross margin is due to higher supply chain costs as a percentage of net sales, partially offset by an increased merchandise margin.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $94.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with $89.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The increase was primarily driven by higher selling expenses associated with 42 new stores, partially offset by lower incentive compensation and reduced stock compensation expense. Included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 is $0.5 million of income related to a gain from an insurance settlement. Excluding this gain, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $95.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and, as a percentage of net sales, were consistent with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 at 22.6%.

Pre-opening expenses decreased to $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 due to the comparative timing and number of new store openings. As a percentage of net sales, pre-opening expenses decreased 20 basis points to 0.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 from 0.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

Operating income increased 4.3% to $64.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 from $61.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Excluding the gain from the insurance settlement, adjusted operating income [(1) ] increased 3.6% to $64.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, adjusted operating income [(1) ] decreased 50 basis points to 15.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 from 15.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to the decrease in gross margin and deleveraging of depreciation and amortization expenses, partially offset by the reduction of pre-opening expenses as a percentage of net sales.

Net income increased to $50.3 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with net income of $49.9 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Diluted earnings per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018 included a benefit of $0.02 and $0.04, respectively, due to excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation. Adjusted net income [(1)] , which excludes these benefits, the after-tax gain from the insurance settlement in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and the after-tax loss on extinguishment of debt in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, increased 3.6% to $48.7 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 from $47.0 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA [(1) ] increased 2.4% to $69.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 from $67.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the gain from the insurance settlement, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and non-cash purchase accounting items.

Fiscal 2019 Results

Net sales totaled $1.408 billion in fiscal 2019, an increase of 13.4% compared with net sales of $1.241 billion in fiscal 2018. The increase in net sales was driven by a 13.9% year-over-year increase in store count. Comparable store sales decreased 2.1%, following a 4.2% increase in the same period last year.

Gross profit increased 11.6% to $555.6 million in fiscal 2019 from $497.7 million in fiscal 2018. Gross margin decreased 60 basis points to 39.5% in fiscal 2019 from 40.1% in fiscal 2018. The decrease in gross margin was due to higher supply chain costs as a percentage of net sales. Merchandise margin was consistent with the prior year.

Operating income increased 6.0% to $171.9 million in fiscal 2019 compared with $162.1 million in fiscal 2018. Included in operating income in fiscal 2019 is $1.0 million of income related to a gain from an insurance settlement. Excluding this gain, adjusted operating income [(1) ] increased 5.4% to $170.8 million in fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, adjusted operating income [(1) ] decreased 100 basis points to 12.1% in fiscal 2019 from 13.1% in fiscal 2018 primarily due to the decrease in gross margin and deleveraging of both selling, general and administrative expenses and depreciation and amortization expenses.

Net income increased to $141.1 million, or $2.14 per diluted share, in fiscal 2019 from $135.0 million, or $2.05 per diluted share, in fiscal 2018. Diluted earnings per share in fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018 included a benefit of $0.17 and $0.22, respectively, due to excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation. Adjusted net income [(1)] , which excludes these benefits, the after-tax gain on the insurance settlement in fiscal 2019 and the after-tax loss on extinguishment of debt in fiscal 2018, increased 7.1% to $129.1 million, or $1.96 per diluted share, in fiscal 2019 from $120.5 million, or $1.83 per diluted share, in fiscal 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA [ (1)] increased 6.7% to $196.0 million in fiscal 2019 compared with $183.7 million in fiscal 2018.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

The Company's cash balance as of the end of fiscal 2019 was $90.0 million compared with $51.9 million as of the end of 2018. The Company had no borrowings outstanding under its $100 million revolving credit facility and $90.8 million of availability under the facility as of the end of fiscal 2019. The Company ended the period with total borrowings, consisting solely of finance lease obligations, of $0.8 million compared with total borrowings of $0.7 million as of the end of fiscal 2018.

Inventories as of the end of fiscal 2019 increased 13.1% to $335.2 million compared with $296.4 million as of the end of fiscal 2018, primarily due to new store growth and timing of deal flow.

Capital expenditures in fiscal 2019, primarily for investments in the continued build-out of the Company's third distribution center and new stores, totaled $77.0 million. Capital expenditures in fiscal 2018 were $74.2 million, reflecting the Company's approximate $42 million purchase of 12 former Toys R Us store sites, new stores and initial investments in the aforementioned distribution center. In fiscal 2019, these former Toys R Us store sites were sold in a sale-leaseback transaction in which the Company received approximately $42 million in proceeds.

Ollie's Bargain Outlet Holdings, Inc. Supplemental Information Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Dollars in thousands) (Unaudited)

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. We have included the non-GAAP measures of adjusted operating income, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share in this press release as these are key measures used by our management and our board of directors to evaluate our operating performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies, make budgeting decisions, and evaluate compensation decisions. Management believes it is useful to investors and analysts to evaluate these non-GAAP measures on the same basis as management uses to evaluate the Company's operating results. We believe that excluding items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, our core operating results, and that may vary in frequency or magnitude from net income and net income per diluted share, enhances the comparability of our results and provides a better baseline for analyzing trends in our business.

The tables below reconcile the most directly comparable GAAP measure to non-GAAP financial measures: operating income to adjusted operating income, net income to adjusted net income, net income per diluted share to adjusted net income per diluted share, and net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted operating income excludes a gain associated with an insurance settlement. Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share exclude excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation, the after-tax gain associated with the insurance settlement and the after-tax loss on extinguishment of debt, all of which may not occur with the same frequency or magnitude in future periods. We define EBITDA as net income before net interest expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization expenses and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA as further adjusted for the non-cash items of stock-based compensation expense and certain purchase accounting items as well as the aforementioned gain from an insurance settlement.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative to or substitute for, the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Certain of the items that may be excluded or included in non-GAAP financial measures may be significant items that could impact the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows and should therefore be considered in assessing the Company's actual financial condition and performance. The methods used by the Company to calculate its non-GAAP financial measures may differ significantly from methods used by other companies to compute similar measures. As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other companies.
