  • Diluted EPS $0.82; Non-GAAP Diluted EPS $1.08, Up 33%

ATLANTA, April 25, 2019 // PRNewswire // - Aaron's, Inc. (NYSE: AAN), a leading omnichannel provider of lease-purchase solutions, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

"We are pleased to report a strong start to the year, achieving over $1 billion in quarterly revenues for the first time and 33% growth in non-GAAP earnings per share," said John Robinson, Chief Executive Officer. "Progressive continues to perform at a high level and is executing well with its new and existing retail partners. At the same time, it continues to make meaningful investments ahead of expected strong revenue growth and pipeline conversion. The Aaron's Business reported results in-line with our expectations and achieved positive same store revenues. We are encouraged by the success the Aaron's Business is experiencing in its business transformation initiatives," concluded Mr. Robinson.

Consolidated Results

For the first quarter of 2019, consolidated revenues were $1.012 billion compared with $954.8 million for the first quarter of 2018. Calculated on a basis consistent with the 2019 adoption of ASC 842 related to lease accounting, revenues increased $103.8 million, or 11.4%, compared to the prior year period. Additionally, the Aaron's Business same store revenues were positive 0.7% which was a continuation of the improving trend in same store revenues experienced throughout 2018. The increase in consolidated revenues was primarily due to the 19.0% increase in revenues at Progressive, calculated on a basis consistent with the 2019 adoption of ASC 842, and the contributions of 152 franchised locations acquired by the Aaron's Business in 2018.

Net earnings for the first quarter of 2019 were $56.1 million compared to $52.2 million in the prior year period. Net earnings in the first quarter were burdened with approximately $13.3 million in pretax charges related to the closure of 84 underperforming company-owned stores. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company was $115.2 million for the first quarter of 2019, compared with $94.1 million for the same period in 2018, an increase of $21.1 million, or 22.4%, due primarily to the strong growth in our Progressive segment. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted EBITDA was 11.4% in the first quarter of 2019, an increase of 100 basis points from the first quarter of 2018 on a consistent accounting basis, resulting from higher consolidated gross margin. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" and the related non-GAAP reconciliation accompanying this press release.

Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2019 were $0.82 compared with $0.73 in the year ago period. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share assuming dilution were $1.08 in the first quarter of 2019 compared with $0.81 for the same quarter in 2018, an increase of $0.27 or 33.3%.

The Company generated $164.7 million in cash from operations during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and ended the first quarter with $124.2 million in cash, compared with a cash balance of $15.3 million at the end of 2018.

Progressive Leasing Segment Results

Progressive Leasing's revenues in the first quarter of 2019 were $523.4 million compared to reported revenues of $486.5 million in the first quarter of 2018. Calculated on a basis consistent with the 2019 adoption of ASC 842, revenues increased $83.4 million or 19.0%. Invoice volume increased 14.2% in the quarter, driven by a 17.9% increase in invoice volume per active door, partially offset by a 3.1% decrease in active doors to approximately 19,800. The decrease in active door count was primarily due a reduction in mattress and mobile doors, which was partially offset by additions in other verticals. Progressive Leasing had 863,000 customers at March 31, 2019, a 19.2% increase from March 31, 2018.

Earnings before income taxes for the first quarter of 2019 were $55.4 million. EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 was $65.3 million compared with $46.2 million for the same period of 2018, an increase of 41.2%. As a percentage of revenues, EBITDA was 12.5% for the first quarter of 2019, an increase of 200 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2018, when calculated on a basis consistent with the 2019 adoption of ASC 842. This increase was due primarily to somewhat lower 90-day early buyout activity, and the improved leverage of SG&A on higher revenues.

The provision for lease merchandise write-offs was 7.0% of revenues in the first quarter of 2019, compared with 6.8% in the same period of 2018, on a basis consistent with the 2019 adoption of ASC 842.

The Aaron's Business Segment Results

For the first quarter of 2019, total revenues for the Aaron's Business increased 4.6% to $480.1 million from $458.8 million in the first quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to the contributions from 152 franchised locations acquired throughout 2018. Same store revenues were up 0.7% in the first quarter of 2019, continuing the trend of improvement experienced throughout 2018. Customer count on a same store basis was down 3.9% during the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. Company-operated Aaron's stores had 992,000 customers at March 31, 2019, a 4.1% increase from March 31, 2018.

Lease revenue and fees for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased 9.7% compared with the same period in 2018. Non-retail sales, which primarily consist of merchandise sales to the Company's franchisees, decreased 30.5% for the first quarter of 2019 compared with the same period of the prior year. The decline is attributed primarily to the franchise acquisitions completed in 2018.

Earnings before income taxes for the first quarter of 2019 were $17.6 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $51.4 million compared with $48.0 million for the same period in 2018, an increase of $3.4 million or 7.0%. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted EBITDA improved 20 basis points to 10.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared with 10.5% for the same period last year.

Write-offs for damaged, lost or unsaleable merchandise were 4.8% of revenues in the first quarter of 2019, compared with 3.8% for the same period last year.

At March 31, 2019, the Aaron's Business had 1,230 Company-operated stores and 369 franchised stores. During the first quarter of 2019, the Company acquired four franchised stores and closed 85 Company-operated stores. Additionally, during the quarter, three franchised stores closed and one franchised store was sold to a third party.

Significant Components of Revenue

Consolidated lease revenues and fees for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased 14.6% over the same period of the prior year, calculated on a basis consistent with the 2019 adoption of ASC 842 related to accounting for leases. Franchise royalties and fees decreased 28.4% in the first quarter of 2019 compared with the same period a year ago, primarily as a result of the lower number of franchised stores. Franchise revenues totaled $120.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of 32.1% from the same period for the prior year. Same store revenues for franchised stores were up 1.3% and same store customer counts were down 0.8% for the first quarter of 2019 compared with the same quarter in 2018. Franchised stores had 259,000 customers at the end of the first quarter of 2019. Revenues and customers of franchisees are not revenues and customers of the Aaron's Business or the Company.

1 See the "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" section accompanying this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

Non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of our performance that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States("GAAP").  Non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2019 each exclude $5.4 million in Progressive Leasing-related intangible amortization expense, $4.0 million in amortization expense resulting from franchisee acquisitions, $0.1 million in acquisition transaction and transition costs related to franchisee acquisitions and $13.3 million in restructuring charges. Non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2018 exclude $5.4 million in Progressive Leasing-related intangible amortization expense, $1.2 million in amortization expense resulting from franchisee acquisitions, $0.9 million in restructuring charges and $0.2 million in tax effects related to a Tax Act adjustment.

The EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA figures presented in this press release are calculated as the Company's earnings before interest expense, depreciation on property, plant and equipment, amortization of intangible assets and income taxes.  Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the other adjustments described in the calculation of non-GAAP net earnings above.

Management believes that non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide relevant and useful information, and are widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our industry as well as by our management in assessing both consolidated and business unit performance.

Non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings provides management and investors with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain items that generally arose from larger, one-time transactions that are not reflective of the ordinary earnings activity of our operations.  This measure may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA also provides management and investors with an understanding of one aspect of earnings before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes.  These measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance and liquidity because the measures:

  • Are widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such measure, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods, book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired, among other factors.
  • Are a financial measurement that is used by rating agencies, lenders and other parties to evaluate our creditworthiness.
  • Are used by our management for various purposes, including as a measure of performance of our operating entities and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.

This press release also discloses non-GAAP revenues for periods prior to January 1, 2019 as if the lessor accounting impacts of ASC 842 were in effect during the three months ended March 31, 2018. "Total Revenues, net of Progressive Bad Debt Expense" and the related percentages for the comparable prior year period are a supplemental measure of our performance that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP in place during 2018. These non-GAAP measures assume that Progressive bad debt expense is recorded as a reduction to lease revenues and fees instead of within operating expenses in 2018. Please see Note 1 to the condensed consolidated financial statements and the "Results of Operations" section of our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 for a more comprehensive disclosure of bad debt expense and the impact of the adoption of ASC 842 related to accounting for leases for the prospective periods beginning with the first quarter of 2019.

Management believes these non-GAAP measures for 2018 provide relevant and useful information for users of our financial statements, as it provides comparability with the financial results we are reporting beginning in 2019 when ASC 842 became effective and we began reporting Progressive bad debt expense as a reduction to lease revenues and fees. We believe these non-GAAP measures provide management and investors the ability to better understand the results from the primary operations of our business in 2019 compared with 2018 by classifying Progressive bad debt expense consistently between the periods.

Finally, this press release presents pre-tax, pre-provision loss for DAMI, which is also a supplemental measure not calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Management believes this measure is useful because it gives management and investors an additional, supplemental metric to assess DAMI's underlying operational performance for the period.  Due to the growth of our originated credit card loan portfolio after our October 2015 acquisition of DAMI, we believe pre-provision, pre-tax loss helps investors to assess DAMI's operating performance until such time as the credit card portfolio reaches levels which management believes will be normal and recurring.  Management uses this measure as one of its bases for strategic planning and forecasting for DAMI.  Our use of pre-provision, pre-tax loss may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies and analysts calculate these measures in the same manner.

Non-GAAP financial measures, however, should not be used as a substitute for, or considered superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as the Company's GAAP basis net earnings and diluted earnings per share and the GAAP earnings before income taxes of the Company's segments, which are also presented in the press release.  Further, we caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Total revenues net of Progressive bad debt expense and the related percentages for the comparable prior year period, and pre-tax, pre-provision loss may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies and analysts calculate these measures in the same manner.
