Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/206904436/composite FND +1.78% (“We,” “Our,” the “Company,” or “Floor & Decor”) announces its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended April 1, 2021.
Tom Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We could not be more pleased with our first quarter earnings results, which are supported by the favorable macro-economic environment and Floor & Decor's strong execution. Our first quarter comparable store sales increased 31.1% and reflected robust sales momentum across all our merchandise categories and geographic regions. The broad-based strength in our merchandise categories is an acceleration of the strong trends from the second half of 2020 and further validates our position as the one-stop solution for all of our homeowners' and Pros' hard-surface flooring needs. We are continuing to successfully deliver on our differentiated strategy of offering the broadest in-stock and trend-forward assortment in every category.”
Mr. Taylor continued, “We successfully opened a first quarter record seven new warehouse stores, more than double the three new warehouse stores we opened in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. For the full year, we still expect to open 27 new warehouse stores, an increase of 20.3% from 2020. We are pleased with the sales performance among all our store vintages with many stores experiencing record weekly sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Our strong fiscal 2021 first quarter sales and profit results serve to reinforce our belief in the strength of the new store classes of 2020 and 2021.”

The COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on Floor & Decor's Business; Fiscal 2021 Outlook Reaffirmed
The COVID-19 pandemic had a material negative impact on our financial results during the first half of fiscal 2020. While our financial results during the second half of fiscal 2020 and the first quarter of fiscal 2021 have been strong, the full impact that the pandemic could have on our business remains highly uncertain.
We continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our associates, customers, business partners, and supply chain. However, given the evolving nature of the pandemic and uncertainty regarding its potential severity and duration, the full financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and financial results will depend on future developments, including the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the success of vaccination programs, the spread of COVID-19 within the markets in which we operate, the impact to countries from which we source inventory, fixed assets, and other supplies, the effect of the pandemic on consumer confidence and spending, and actions taken by government entities in response to the pandemic, all of which are highly uncertain. Due to the continued uncertainty regarding the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated complexity of forecasting, we are reaffirming select annual guidance for new store openings and certain other financial measures that we believe we can reasonably forecast.
Reaffirmed Outlook for the Fiscal Year Ending December 30, 2021:
Depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $116 million to $118 million
Interest expense, net of approximately $5 million
Tax rate of approximately 24%
Diluted weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 107 million shares
Open 27 new warehouse-format stores and two small design studios
Capital expenditures in the range of approximately $440 million to $460 million

About Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc.
Floor & Decor is a multi-channel specialty retailer operating 140 warehouse-format stores and two design studios across 32 states at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company offers a broad assortment of in-stock hard-surface flooring, including tile, wood, laminate, vinyl, and natural stone along with decorative and installation accessories, at everyday low prices. The Company was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
Comparable Store Sales
Comparable store sales refer to period-over-period comparisons of our net sales among the comparable store base and are 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. 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 the square footage of an existing comparable store, including for remodels and relocations within the same primary trade area of the existing store being relocated, does not eliminate that store from inclusion in the calculation of comparable store sales. Stores that are closed for a full fiscal month or longer are excluded from the comparable store sales calculation for each full fiscal month that they are closed. Since our e-commerce, regional account manager, and design studio 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.
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 (gain) on early extinguishment of debt, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, loss (gain) 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.
