Regis Reports $11.0 Million Increase in Fourth Quarter 2016 Operating Income

MINNEAPOLIS - August 23, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Regis Corporation (NYSE:RGS), a leader in the haircare industry, whose primary business is owning, operating and franchising hair salons, today reported results for its fiscal fourth quarter ended June 30, 2016 versus the prior year as noted below.

As a result of the Company's valuation allowance against most of its deferred tax assets, associated reported and as adjusted, after-tax results are not comparable to prior periods.

Fiscal 2016 Highlights:

  • Same-store sales increased 0.2%.
  • Franchise revenue increased 6.5%.
  • Repurchased 7.6 million shares of common stock for $101 million.
  • Generated $55 million of operating cash flow.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Results:

  • Sales of $447.7 million, a decline of ($15.2) million. Same-store sales decreased (1.4%).
    • Same-store service sales decreased (1.6%) and same-store product sales decreased (0.8%).
  • GAAP operating income of $10.6 million compared to ($0.4) million in the prior year quarter.
  • GAAP net income of $5.6 million or $0.12 per diluted share.
    • Includes ($0.06) per diluted share unfavorable impact due to the deferred tax valuation allowance on income tax expense.
  • EBITDA, as adjusted, of $27.4 million compared to $24.4 million in the prior year quarter.
    • Decrease of ($2.5) million from same-store sales declines.
    • Increase of $5.5 million mainly from lower incentives, cost savings, timing of certain costs throughout the year, reduced salon counts, lapping certain costs in the prior year quarter, and higher franchise royalties and fees, partly offset by minimum wage and inflation, increased health insurance costs, lapping of one-time inventory improvements, and planned strategic investments.
  • Diluted EPS, as adjusted, was $0.12 compared to $0.01 in the prior year quarter.
    • Excluding the impact of the deferred tax valuation allowance, Diluted EPS, as adjusted, improved $0.24 per share compared to the prior year quarter.
    • Primary drivers of this improvement were lower depreciation, income tax credits, lower non-cash equity in losses of Empire Education Group, and the EBITDA impacts listed above.
  • The prior year quarter GAAP net loss includes net discrete expense of $3.1 million. See non-GAAP reconciliations.

Dan Hanrahan, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am proud of the work our organization has put forth to deliver our first positive full year sales comp since fiscal 2007. This could not have been achieved without improved execution in the organization around our key strategies focused on Leadership Development, Technical Education and Asset Protection. I am also pleased by the fact we expanded our EBITDA, as adjusted, by $3.8 and $3.0 million for the full year and the fourth quarter, respectively. This reflects our continued efforts to contain our cost structure while we are fixing our business. During the year, we aggressively grew our franchising business, strengthened our balance sheet, and returned $101 million to shareholders in the form of share repurchases. That said, I end the year with mixed emotions. We still need to reverse guest traffic declines that have persisted for many years and fourth quarter same-store sales declined by 1.4%. This demonstrates the opportunity we have to continue to improve our execution capabilities and a key reason why I have said over the past three years our improvement would not be linear.”

Mr. Hanrahan concluded, “As I look toward fiscal 2017, I recognize the path to sustainable growth is in the quality of our field leadership and execution capabilities. Transforming a culture comprised of 45,000 stylists, 1,000 field leaders and 7,000 salons requires strong execution, an ongoing commitment and time. I am confident our strategies will make Regis the place where stylists can have successful and satisfying careers that, in turn, will deliver sustainable growth in guest traffic and profitability.”

Fourth Quarter Results:

Revenues. Revenue in the quarter of $447.7 million declined $15.2 million, or 3.3%, compared to the prior year quarter. Same-store sales decreased 1.4% compared to the prior year quarter. Management estimates the shift of Easter from April of last year to March of this year negatively impacted same-store sales by approximately 40 basis points during the fourth quarter of the current year. The remaining 190 basis point, or $9.2 million, decline in revenue, compared to the prior year quarter, was primarily due to the closing of unprofitable salons and foreign currency, partly offset by one more calendar day in the quarter and growth from royalties and fees.

Service revenues were $348.9 million, a $13.4 million, or 3.7% decrease, compared to the prior year quarter. Same-store service sales decreased 1.6%, driven by a decline in guest traffic of 5.1%, partly offset by an increase in average ticket of 3.5%. The remaining 210 basis point, or $7.9 million, decline in service revenues, compared to the prior year quarter, was primarily due to the closing of unprofitable salons and foreign currency, partly offset by one more calendar day in the quarter.

Product revenues were $86.7 million, a decrease of $1.9 million, or 2.2%, compared to the prior year quarter. Product same-store sales for the quarter decreased 0.8%, driven by a decrease in traffic of 0.9%, partly offset by a 0.1% increase in average ticket. The other 140 basis point, or $1.3 million, decline in product revenues, compared to the prior year quarter, was primarily due to the closing of unprofitable salons and foreign currency, partly offset by one more calendar day in the quarter.

Royalties and fees were $12.1 million, an increase of $0.2 million, or 1.4% compared to the prior year quarter. Franchisees posted positive same-store sales during the quarter. The timing of new franchised-salon openings impacted results in the quarter. The Company added a net 42, or 1.7%, and a net 172, or 7.4%, new franchised locations during the quarter and year, respectively.

Cost of Service and Product. Cost of service and product, as a percent of service and product revenues, increased 90 basis points to 59.6% compared to the prior year quarter.

Cost of service as a percent of service revenues for the quarter increased 60 basis points versus the prior year quarter, to 62.1%. The primary drivers were state minimum wage increases and higher health insurance costs, partly offset by the timing of Easter Sunday pay and lower salon incentives.

In the fourth quarter, the Company issued a press release stating new U.S. Department of Labor overtime rules, effective December 1, 2016, could increase its costs from $0 to $5 million per year. After considering alternatives to mitigate these cost increases, the Company now believes the annualized impact will be on the lower end of this range.

Cost of product as a percent of product revenues was 49.5%. The increase of 250 basis points when compared to the prior year quarter was mainly the result of lapping one-time inventory improvements.

Site Operating Expenses. Site operating expenses of $44.8 million decreased $3.6 million compared to the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of discrete items in the prior year period, site operating expenses decreased $1.3 million. This was primarily driven by a net reduction of 233 salons, the timing of marketing expenses, cost savings, and foreign currency, partly offset by lapping favorable self-insurance costs and certain tax refunds.

General and Administrative. General and administrative expenses of $43.5 million decreased $6.6 million compared to the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of discrete items in the current and prior periods, general and administrative expenses decreased $6.4 million compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease was mainly due to lower incentive costs, lapping certain costs in the prior year quarter, timing of expenses throughout the year, cost savings and foreign currency, partly offset by planned strategic investments.

Rent. Rent expense of $73.6 million decreased $4.6 million compared to the prior year quarter. This decrease was primarily the result of a net reduction of 233 salons, lapping certain lease renewal costs in the prior year quarter, receipt of a one-time landlord credit, and foreign exchange, partly offset by rent inflation.

Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization was $15.6 million compared to $22.0 million in the prior year quarter, a decrease of $6.5 million. This decrease was primarily due to a net reduction of 233 salons and lower non-cash salon fixed asset impairments.

Income Taxes. During the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company recognized income tax expense of $4.1 million and tax benefit of $2.2 million, at effective tax rates of 42.6% and 92.6%, respectively.

The recorded tax expense and effective tax rates for the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were different than what would normally be expected due to the impact of the deferred tax valuation allowance. The majority of the tax expense relates to a non-cash tax expense for tax benefits on certain indefinite-lived assets the Company cannot recognize for reporting purposes. Income tax expense for the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2016 includes non-cash expense of $4.5 and $7.9 million, respectively, related to this matter. This non-cash impact will continue as long as the Company has a valuation allowance against most of its deferred tax assets and is expected to approximate $7.8 million of expense for the year ending June 30, 2017.

Equity in Affiliates. Income from equity method investments and affiliated companies was flat compared to a loss of $1.8 million in the prior year quarter. The prior year loss of $1.8 million represented the Company's portion of EEG's loss.

EBITDA, as Adjusted. EBITDA, as adjusted, which excludes the impact of equity in earnings of affiliated companies and discrete items in both periods, was $27.4 million, an improvement of $3.0 million compared to the prior year quarter.

Capital Allocation. During the fourth quarter, the Company repurchased 0.3 million shares for $4.0 million at an average price of $13.65 per share, excluding transaction costs. For the full year, the Company repurchased 7.6 million shares for $101.0 million at an average price of $13.19 per share, excluding transaction costs. At June 30, 2016, approximately $60 million remained outstanding under the Company's existing share repurchase authorization.

(1) Same-store sales are calculated on a daily basis as the total change in sales for company-owned locations that were open on a specific day of the week during the current period and the corresponding prior period. Quarterly and fiscal year same-store sales are the sum of the same-store sales computed on a daily basis. Locations relocated within a one-mile radius are included in same-store sales as they are considered to have been open in the prior period. International same-store sales are calculated in local currencies to remove foreign currency fluctuations from the calculation.

Non-GAAP Reconciliations

We believe our presentation of non-GAAP operating income, net income (loss), net income (loss) per diluted share, and other non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful insight into our ongoing operating performance and an alternative perspective of our results of operations. Presentation of the non-GAAP measures allows investors to review our core ongoing operating performance from the same perspective as management and the Board of Directors. These non-GAAP financial measures provide investors an enhanced understanding of our operations, facilitate investors’ analyses and comparisons of our current and past results of operations and provide insight into the prospects of our future performance. We also believe the non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they provide supplemental information research analysts frequently use to analyze financial performance.

The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may differ from methods used by other companies. These non-GAAP results should not be regarded as a substitute for corresponding U.S. GAAP measures but instead should be utilized as a supplemental measure of operating performance in evaluating our business. Non-GAAP measures do have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. As such, these non-GAAP measures should be viewed in conjunction with both our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and the reconciliation of the selected U.S. GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures, which are located in the Investor Information section of the corporate website at www.regiscorp.com.

Non-GAAP reconciling items for the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015:

The following information is provided to give qualitative and quantitative information related to items impacting comparability. Items impacting comparability are not defined terms within U.S. GAAP. Therefore, our non-GAAP financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We determine which items to consider as “items impacting comparability” based on how management views our business, makes financial, operating and planning decisions and evaluates the Company’s ongoing performance. The following items have been excluded from our non-GAAP results:

  • Self-insurance reserve adjustments*
  • Expense associated with legal cases
  • Gain on life insurance proceeds
  • Expenses associated with financing arrangements
  • Professional fees
  • Deferred compensation adjustments
  • Establishment of deferred tax valuation allowances
  • Other than temporary impairment associated with our investment in Empire Education Group (EEG) and our portion of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance established by EEG
  • Discontinued operations

* In the three month period ended June 30, 2016, the Company did not adjust results for self-insurance reserves.

Notes:

(1) For the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded $4.1 and $9.0 million, respectively, of income tax expense. The presence of a valuation allowance, including the non-cash tax expense on certain indefinite-lived assets, affects comparability of income tax expense, as adjusted and will cause our effective tax rate to fluctuate from quarter to quarter. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company evaluated GAAP diluted EPS with and without the presence of the valuation allowance and calculated an impact of $0.06 per share. Diluted EPS, as adjusted, without the presence of the valuation allowance, was $0.18 and ($0.05) for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, representing an improvement of $0.24 per diluted share, including $0.01 related to the impact of share count changes. As a result of the valuation allowance, non-GAAP adjustments are not tax effected.

 

(2) The self-insurance reserve adjustment of ($0.010) for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was not included in the Company's calculation of non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share.

 

(3) Total is a recalculation; line items calculated individually may not sum to total due to rounding.

 

(4) Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share reflects the weighted average shares associated with non-GAAP net income (loss), which may include the dilutive effect of common stock and convertible share equivalents.

 

REGIS CORPORATION
Reconciliation of reported U.S. GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure
(Dollars in thousands)
(Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA
EBITDA represents U.S. GAAP net income (loss) for the respective period excluding interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA, as EBITDA excluding equity in loss of affiliated companies, and identified items impacting comparability for each respective period. For the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the items impacting comparability consisted of the items identified in the non-GAAP reconciling items for the respective periods. The impact of the income tax provision adjustments associated with the above items and accelerated depreciation related to the corporate office consolidation are already included in the U.S. GAAP reported net income (loss) to EBITDA reconciliation, therefore there is no adjustment needed for the reconciliation from EBITDA to adjusted EBITDA. The impacts of the Company's portion of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance established by EEG, the impairment on the Company's investment in EEG and the recovery of previously impaired investments in an affiliate, are already included by excluding the impact of the Company’s equity in loss of affiliated companies, net of taxes, as reported.
