Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 4, 2022--

Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: FND) (“We,” “Our,” the “Company,” or “Floor & Decor”) announces its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, which ended June 30, 2022.

Tom Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to deliver better-than-expected fiscal 2022 second quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.76 per share. These earnings results are particularly gratifying to us when we consider the previous year's record sales and profits, the extraordinary inflationary impact of higher global supply chain costs on our results, rising mortgage rates, and ten consecutive months of declining year-over-year existing home sales. We are proud of all of our teams and how they continue to execute our growth strategies and successfully manage our profitability. I thank our associates and vendor partners for their hard work and dedication as we navigate near-term macroeconomic challenges.”

Mr. Taylor continued, “We opened nine new warehouse-format stores in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, including six warehouse stores in new markets. We plan to open eight warehouse-format stores in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. We intend to open 32 new warehouse-format stores in fiscal 2022 and are pleased with the quarterly cadence of warehouse-format store openings.”

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.

A conference call to discuss the second quarter fiscal 2022 financial results is scheduled for today, August 4, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. A live audio webcast of the conference call, together with related materials, will be available online at .

A recorded replay of the conference call will be available within two hours of the conclusion of the call and can be accessed both online at ir.flooranddecor.com and by dialing 877-660-6853 (international callers please dial 201-612-7415). The pin number to access the telephone replay is 13731646. The replay will be available until August 11, 2022.

Floor & Decor is a multi-channel specialty retailer and commercial flooring distributor operating 174 warehouse-format stores and five design studios across 34 states at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2022. The Company offers a broad assortment of in-stock hard-surface flooring, including tile, wood, laminate, vinyl, and natural stone along with decorative accessories and wall tile, installation materials, and adjacent categories at everyday low prices. The Company was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

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. Sales through our Spartan Surfaces, LLC ("Spartan") subsidiary do not involve our stores and are therefore excluded from the comparable store sales calculation.

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 may 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, distribution center relocation expenses, fair value adjustments related to contingent earn-out liabilities, 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.
