October 29, 2020 4:05 PM

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: FND) (“We,” “Our,” the “Company,” or “Floor & Decor”) announces its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, which ended September 24, 2020.

Tom Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very pleased with our fiscal 2020 third quarter earnings results, which reflected broad-based accelerating sales momentum throughout the quarter and strong earnings flow through. Our fiscal 2020 third quarter comparable store sales increased 18.4%. We are very pleased with our third quarter comparable store sales growth exit rate and the start to our fiscal 2020 fourth quarter. Our year-to-date comparable store sales through the third quarter of fiscal 2020 were flat with last year, a remarkable accomplishment considering COVID’s considerable impact to the operation of our stores in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Our third quarter net sales increased to $684.8 million, an increase of 31.4% from the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Our third quarter adjusted EBITDA* improved meaningfully to a record $106.7 million, an increase of 86.8% from the third quarter of fiscal 2019. These strong third quarter earnings are the direct result of our associates’ responding tirelessly to the surging demand and the cross-functional collaboration among all our teams. We are encouraged that housing market conditions improved in the third quarter from low interest rates, the secular demand for housing and from homeowners’ undertaking projects to repurpose and personalize their homes to work, learn, exercise and play. These factors, among others, leave us optimistic about the remainder of fiscal 2020.”

Mr. Taylor continued, “We opened three new warehouse stores and one design center in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and remain pleased with the performance of our new stores. We are on track to open a total of 13 new warehouse stores and one design center in fiscal 2020 and intend to grow our new warehouse stores by approximately 20% annually in fiscal 2021 and for the next several years.”

Please see “Comparable Store Sales” below for information on how the Company calculates its comparable store sales growth.

The COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on Floor & Decor’s Business Outlook: The COVID-19 pandemic had a material negative impact on our financial results during the first two quarters of fiscal 2020. While our financial results improved during the third quarter of fiscal 2020 relative to the first half of the year, the full impact that the pandemic could have on our business remains highly uncertain. We continue to monitor the situation closely with regards to 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 pandemic on our business cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

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 permanently 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 (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.

Please see “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures used in this release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements in this release are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee future events, results, performance or achievements. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements in this release or the associated webcast/conference call, including, without limitation, those factors described in “Forward-Looking Statements,” Item 1, “Business” and Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of Part I and Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and Item 9A, “Controls and Procedures” of Part II of the Company’s Annual Report for fiscal 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 20, 2020 (the “Annual Report”) and elsewhere in the Annual Report, those factors described in Item 2, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 24, 2020 (the “10-Q”) and elsewhere in the 10-Q, and those described in the Company’s other filings with the SEC.

Because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. The forward-looking statements contained in this release or the associated webcast/conference call speak only as of the date hereof. New risks and uncertainties arise over time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict those events or how they may affect the Company. If a change to the events and circumstances reflected in the Company’s forward-looking statements occurs, the Company’s business, financial condition and operating results may vary materially from those expressed in the Company’s forward-looking statements. Except as required by applicable law, the Company does not plan to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements contained herein or in the associated webcast/conference call, whether as a result of any new information, future events or otherwise.
