“I am extremely proud of how our team successfully navigated the challenging external environment and delivered solid results in 2020,” said Chief Executive Officer Rex Tibbens. “Our home services remain as important as ever in the current stay-more-at-home environment, and we believe the structural changes around home ownership and consumer expectations will provide a significant demand tailwind for years to come. In 2021, we are focused on advancing initiatives to drive double-digit revenue growth, automating processes, expanding our customer retention initiatives and delivering on the vision for our emerging businesses.”

“In 2020, our profit margins were pressured by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as increased investments to improve efficiency and expand our customer base,” said Chief Financial Officer Brian Turcotte. “We are continuing to take actions to mitigate the impact of higher service requests in the current environment and deliver a superior customer experience over time. While our 2021 outlook reflects accelerated revenue growth, it also includes an elevated rate of service requests continuing through the first half of the year, investments to drive customer demand, and higher inflation.”

Fourth-quarter 2020 revenue increased eight percent over the prior year period. Renewal revenue increased eight percent due to improved price realization and growth in the number of renewed home service plans, driven, in part, by customer retention initiatives. First-year real estate revenue increased one percent, reflecting improved price realization, partly offset by a decline in the number of first-year real estate home service plans. First-year real estate revenue was impacted by a 19 percent decline in existing U.S. home sales during the second quarter as a result of COVID-19, which impacted revenue growth for the remainder of the year. First-year direct-to-consumer revenue increased 13 percent, reflecting growth in the number of home service plans, mostly driven by increased investments in marketing, and improved price realization.

Fourth-quarter 2020 net income was $2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.02.

Fourth-quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $32 million was $16 million lower than the prior year period, as $17 million of higher revenue conversion(3) was more than offset by:

  • $18 million of higher contract claims costs in fourth-quarter 2020 versus prior year, excluding the impact of claims costs related to the change in revenue;
  • $6 million of increased sales and marketing costs, primarily investments to drive growth in home service plans and emerging businesses; and
  • $8 million of higher customer service costs, mostly related to managing a higher number of service requests and investments in customer retention improvement initiatives.

The $18 million increase in contract claims costs was primarily driven by higher costs and number of service requests in the appliance trade, as well as normal inflation across other trades. The increased costs in the appliance trade were driven, in part, by industry-wide appliance and appliance parts availability challenges. These parts availability challenges also resulted in an elevated level of replacements, which increased cost in the appliance trade. The higher number of appliance service requests was mostly the result of customers spending more time at home in response to COVID-19. Contract claims costs also reflect a favorable weather impact of approximately $1 million and process improvement benefits.

Full-year 2020 revenue increased eight percent over the prior year period.

First-year real estate revenue was flat, reflecting a decline in the number of first-year real estate home service plans, offset by improved price realization. First-year real estate revenue was impacted by a 19 percent decline in existing U.S. home sales during the second quarter as a result of COVID-19, which impacted revenue growth for the remainder of the year.

Full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $270 million was $32 million lower than the prior year period, as $88 million of higher revenue conversion(3) was more than offset by:

  • $49 million of higher contract claims costs in full-year 2020 versus prior year, excluding the impact of claims costs related to the change in revenue;
  • $42 million of increased sales and marketing costs, primarily investments to drive growth in the direct-to-consumer channel; and
  • $19 million of higher customer service costs, mostly related to managing a higher number of service requests and investments in customer retention improvement initiatives.

The $49 million increase in contract claims costs was primarily driven by a higher number of service requests and costs in the appliance trade due to COVID-19, as well as normal inflation across other trades. This includes approximately $36 million of costs directly related to the higher number of appliance service requests. The increased costs in the appliance trade were driven, in part, by industry-wide appliance and appliance parts availability challenges. These parts availability challenges also resulted in an elevated level of replacements, which increased cost in the appliance trade. The higher number of appliance service requests was mostly a result of customers spending more time at home in response to COVID-19. Contract claims costs also reflect a favorable weather impact of approximately $7 million and process improvement benefits.

Net cash provided from operating activities was $207 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $200 million for the prior year period, as favorable changes in working capital more than offset lower net income.

Net cash used for investing activities was $31 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $61 million for the prior year period. The decrease was primarily driven by the acquisition of Streem at the end of 2019, partly offset by an $11 million increase in capital expenditures in 2020.

Net cash used for financing activities was $7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the same as the prior year period, and was related to required debt payments.

Free Cash Flow(1) was $175 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $178 million for the prior year period. The decrease was due to higher capital expenditures, partly offset by an increase in cash from operating activities.

Cash increased $47 million to $597 million from September 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020, and included restricted net assets of $180 million and Unrestricted Cash of $418 million.

Available liquidity was $668 million at December 31, 2020, consisting of the $418 million of Unrestricted Cash and an undrawn revolving credit facility of $250 million.

In February 2021, the company repaid $100 million of the outstanding principal amount on the Term Loan Facility.

First-Quarter 2021 Outlook

  • Revenue of $325 million to $330 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $30 million to $35 million, which reflects a continuation of higher service request demand and additional investments in automation.

Full-Year 2021 Outlook

  • Revenue of $1.63 billion to $1.65 billion, or approximately 11 percent to 12 percent higher than the prior year.
  • Gross profit margin of approximately 48 percent, reflecting a continuation of higher appliance service requests into the first half of 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $280 million to $300 million.
  • Capital expenditures of $35 million to $45 million, primarily consisting of technology investments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Frontdoor’s results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), Frontdoor has disclosed the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, and Unrestricted Cash.

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as net income before: provision for income taxes; interest expense; depreciation and amortization expense; non-cash stock-based compensation expense; restructuring charges; Spin-off charges; secondary offering costs; and other non-operating expenses. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful for investors, analysts and other interested parties as it facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures, taxation, the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment, restructuring initiatives, Spin-off charges and equity-based, long-term incentive plans.

We define “Free Cash Flow” as net cash provided from operating activities less property additions. Free Cash Flow is not a measurement of our financial performance or liquidity under U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net cash provided from operating activities or any other performance or liquidity measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Free Cash Flow is useful as a supplemental measure of our liquidity. Management uses Free Cash Flow to facilitate company-to-company cash flow comparisons, which may vary from company to company for reasons unrelated to operating performance.

We define “Adjusted Net Income” as net income before: amortization expense; restructuring charges; Spin-off charges; secondary offering costs; other non-operating expenses; and the tax impact of the aforementioned adjustments. We believe Adjusted Net Income is useful for investors, analysts and other interested parties as it facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by excluding potential differences caused by items listed in this definition.

We define “Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share” as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding.

We define “Unrestricted Cash” as cash not subject to third-party restrictions. For additional information related to our third-party restrictions, see “Liquidity and Capital Resources — Liquidity” under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

See the schedules attached hereto for additional information and reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for its and investors’ evaluation of Frontdoor’s business performance and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of the performance of Frontdoor’s business. While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating our business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly entitled measures reported by other companies.

(1)

 

See “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” accompanying this release for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, each a non-GAAP measure, to the nearest GAAP measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” included in this release for descriptions of calculations of these measures.

 

(2)

 

A reconciliation of the forward-looking first-quarter and full-year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA outlook to net income cannot be provided without unreasonable effort because of the inherent difficulty of accurately forecasting the occurrence and financial impact of the various adjusting items necessary for such reconciliation that have not yet occurred, are out of our control, or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, the company is unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a material impact on its future GAAP financial results.

 

(3)

 

Revenue conversion is calculated using the estimated gross margin impact of new home service plan revenue along with the impact of price changes.
