EAGLE, Idaho, Feb. 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetIQ, Inc. (“PetIQ” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PETQ), a leading pet medication, product and wellness company, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

Cord Christensen, PetIQ’s Founder and CEO commented, “2023 was a record year for PetIQ. I am very proud of our team's execution to grow our business, enabling us to significantly exceed the top and bottom line guidance that we provided at the beginning of the year. These results also fueled cash generation above our expectations, and we improved the Company's net leverage to a record low.”

Christensen continued, “We made significant strategic investments in marketing during the year to support the growth and development of PetIQ's portfolio of pet health and wellness brands as evidenced by our higher rate of consumption and market share gains. We will use the cost savings from our Services segment optimization to reinvest in our future growth, funding approximately half of the planned incremental marketing initiatives in 2024. Our mission to help pet parents have access to affordable and convenient pet health and wellness continues to gain momentum and we're excited about our opportunities to fuel growth and enhance shareholder value for many years to come.”

Full Year 2023 Highlights Compared to Prior Year

Fourth Quarter 2023 Highlights Compared to Prior Year Period

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Net sales were $219.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of 19.5% compared to net sales of $184.1 million in the prior year period, driven by an increase in sales from both the Products and Services segments.

Products segment net sales of $191.3 million increased 21.6% for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to the prior year period, reflecting broad-based growth in the Company's product categories from strong consumer demand across sales channels as well as from the acquisition Rocco & Roxie LLC ("Rocco & Roxie") completed in January 2023. The Company experienced growth during the fourth quarter of 2023 from flea and tick, prescription medication, health and wellness as well as dental and treat product offerings. Net sales for PetIQ’s manufactured products outperformed the Company's growth expectations for the fourth quarter of 2023 as compared to the prior year period with an increase of 36% including the acquisition of Rocco & Roxie, or an increase of 19%, on an organic basis.

Services segment revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 increased 6.9% to $28.6 million from the fourth quarter last year driven by operational improvements, despite the loss of revenue from the 149 wellness centers closed in the third and fourth quarters of 2023 associated with the previously disclosed Services segment optimization. The Company ended 2023 with 133 wellness centers in operation.

Fourth quarter 2023 gross profit was $44.0 million, an increase of 12.0%, compared to $39.3 million in the prior year period. Gross margin decreased 130 basis points to 20.0% from 21.3% in the prior year period primarily as a result of the 104 and 45 wellness center closures in the fourth quarter and third quarter of 2023, respectively. Adjusted gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $45.6 million and adjusted gross margin was 20.7%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) was $42.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to $37.7 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was 19.4% for the fourth quarter of 2023, a decrease of 110 basis points compared to the prior year period. Adjusted SG&A was $40.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to $34.7 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net sales adjusted SG&A was 18.5%, an improvement of 40 basis points compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of continued leverage of costs and increased business expense efficiencies relative to the growth in net sales, partially offset by incremental and planned marketing expense of approximately $3 million to support PetIQ's manufactured brands.

Restructuring and related charges attributable to the Services segment optimization were $3.5 million, plus an additional $1.6 million included in cost of services equating to a total restructuring of $5.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023. See the "Calculation of Total Restructuring Expenses" financial table that accompanies this release for the components of expenses included in restructuring and cost of services. In the fourth quarter of 2023 the Company recorded non-cash asset charges of $7.7 million for its foreign subsidiary, Mark & Chappell, in connection with the related valuation and expected sale of the business.

Net loss was $17.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to a net loss of $6.8 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net loss for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $3.4 million and adjusted loss per share was $0.12, compared to adjusted net loss of $3.0 million, and adjusted loss per share of $0.10 in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA of $12.0 million, includes approximately $3 million of aforementioned incremental and planned marketing expense, compared to $12.9 million in the prior year period.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

The Company ended the quarter with total cash and cash equivalents of $116.4 million. For the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company generated its highest annual cash from operations and free cash flow in the Company's history of $61.9 million and $52.7 million, respectively. The Company’s total debt was $445.2 million as of December 31, 2023. The Company had total liquidity, which it defines as cash on hand plus debt availability, of $241.4 million as of December 31, 2023. The Company's net leverage as measured under the Company's credit agreement was a record low 2.9x as of December 31, 2023 a reduction from 3.7x in 2022. Please refer to the financial tables within this press release for a calculation of the Company’s net leverage under the credit agreement and free cash flow.

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted SG&A as a percent of net sales, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful additional information to investors about current trends in the Company's operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of operations. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assess operating performance and for business planning purposes. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a definition of these measures and the financial tables that accompany this release for a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Outlook

For the full year 2024 and first quarter of 2024 the Company is providing its outlook inclusive of its Services segment optimization, the expected sale of its foreign subsidiary, Mark & Chappell and a return to more normal flea and tick seasonality as compared to the record seasonal patterns experienced in 2023. Additionally, for the year ending December 31, 2024, the Company expects the 2024 net sales contribution to be weighted to the first half of 2024, with approximately 56% of the Company's projected annual net sales recorded in this period. The Company's annual adjusted EBITDA is also expected to be weighted to the first half of 2024. The Company's annual seasonality can vary based on the timing of shipments, promotional activity, product launches and a number of other factors.

For the full year 2024 the Company expects:

For the first quarter of 2024 the Company expects:

The Company does not provide guidance for net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA, and similarly cannot provide a reconciliation between its forecasted adjusted EBITDA and net income without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of reliable estimates for certain components of net income and the respective reconciliations. These forecasted items are not within the Company’s control, may vary greatly between periods and could significantly impact future financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2024 and full year ending December 31, 2024.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risks and uncertainties, such as statements about our plans, objectives, expectations, assumptions or future events. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expect,” “believe,” “intend,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve estimates, assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from any future results, performances, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to, general economic or market conditions, including inflation and interest rates; overall consumer spending in the industry; our ability to successfully grow our business through acquisitions and our ability to integrate acquisitions; our dependency on a limited number of customers; our ability to implement our growth strategy effectively; our ability to continue to grow our Services segment; disruptions in our manufacturing, shipping, transportation and distribution chains; competition from veterinarians and others in our industry; reputational damage to our brands; the effectiveness of our marketing and trade promotion programs; recalls or withdrawals of our products or product liability claims; our ability to introduce new products and improve existing products; our ability to protect our intellectual property; costs associated with governmental regulation; our ability to keep and retain key employees; our ability to sustain profitability; cyber security risks, including breaches that result in business interruption and data loss; our substantial indebtedness and ability to raise additional capital as needed; and the risks set forth under the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 and other reports filed time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which the statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Consequently, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, PetIQ uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted SG&A as a percentage of total net sales, adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted (loss) earnings per share, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow.

Adjusted gross profit consists of gross profit adjusted for restructuring and purchase accounting adjustment to inventory. Adjusted gross margin is adjusted gross margin stated as a percentage of total net sales.

Adjusted SG&A consists of SG&A adjusted for acquisition costs, stock-based compensation expense, integration and business transformation costs, and litigation expenses. Adjusted SG&A is adjusted SG&A as a percentage of total net sales.

Adjusted net (loss) income consists of net income adjusted for tax expense, impairment and other asset charges, acquisition costs, integration and business transformation costs, litigation expenses, restructuring costs and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted net income is utilized by management to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share is defined as non-GAAP adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.

EBITDA represents net income before interest, income taxes, impairment and other asset charges, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus adjustments for transactions that management does not believe are representative of our core ongoing business including acquisition costs, restructuring, stock-based compensation expense, litigation expenses, and integration and business transformation costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin is adjusted EBITDA stated as a percentage of total net sales.

Adjusted EBITDA is utilized by management as a factor in evaluating the Company's performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies. The Company presents EBITDA because it is a necessary component for computing adjusted EBITDA.

Free cash flow consists of cash provided by operations less capital expenditures.

We believe that the use of these non-GAAP measures provides additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends. In addition, you should be aware when evaluating these non-GAAP measures that in the future we may incur expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. Our presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by these or other unusual or non-recurring items. Our computation of non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies do not calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. Our management does not, and you should not, consider the non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements. See a reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure, in the financial tables that accompany this release.
