DENTON, Texas--()--Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SBH) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the fiscal 2015 second quarter. The Company will hold a conference call today at 10:00 a.m. (Central) to discuss these results and its business.

“We made solid progress on our initiatives and we are pleased with our financial results for Q2,” stated Chris Brickman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Consolidated same store sales grew 2.8% and gross margin expanded by 20 basis points, resulting in 11% year-over-year growth in EPS. Despite this progress, we aspire to much more, and we clearly have more work left in order to achieve our long term objectives.

“During the second quarter, our store refresh initiative continued to realize positive returns and we are on track to complete the next phase of remodels by June 1st. The Nail studio is now fully installed in all our Sally U.S. stores and we are investing to market this winning category assortment during the spring nail season. We reset the multicultural category in all stores to better reflect modern consumer needs. The Sally team finished the work required to get our dynamic CRM program fully operational by April and we are very excited about the early results and future potential of this initiative. At the same time, our BSG team completed new brand integrations into our stores and we began the work required to extend CRM and improved e-commerce capabilities to our professional business by year-end. Finally, we have developed a strong list of merchandising and marketing innovations we plan to deploy in both businesses during the coming quarters – and I have full confidence in the team to build on the initial momentum so that we can achieve our objectives for this year and beyond.”

FISCAL 2015 SECOND QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Net Sales: For the fiscal 2015 second quarter, consolidated net sales were $937.8 million, an increase of 2.0% from the fiscal 2014 second quarter. The fiscal 2015 second quarter sales increase is attributed to same store sales growth and the addition of new stores. The unfavorable impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates in the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $21.5 million, or 2.3% of sales. Consolidated same store sales growth in the fiscal 2015 second quarter was 2.8%.

Gross Profit: Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $467.5 million, an increase of 2.4% over gross profit of $456.4 million for the fiscal 2014 second quarter. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 49.8%, a 20 basis point improvement from the fiscal 2014 second quarter.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses: For the fiscal 2015 second quarter, GAAP consolidated selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, including unallocated corporate expenses and share-based compensation, were $317.5 million, or 33.9% of sales, a 10 basis point improvement from the fiscal 2014 second quarter metric of 34.0% of sales and total SG&A expenses of $312.8 million. Excluding a $1.5 million, pre-tax, contingent liability related to the data security incident, adjusted SG&A expenses in the fiscal 2015 third quarter, were $315.9 million or 33.7% of sales.

Fiscal 2015 second quarter GAAP SG&A expenses increased 1.5% or $4.6 million, primarily due to expenses associated with the opening of new stores, higher expenses related to on-going upgrades to our information technology systems, higher employee compensation-related expenses in connection with our ongoing management transition plans and a contingent liability related to the data security incident.

Note: SG&A expenses include unallocated corporate expenses, as detailed in the Company’s segment information on schedule B.

Financial Position, Capital Expenditures and Working Capital: Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2015, were $246.0 million. The Company’s asset-based loan (ABL) revolving credit facility ended the fiscal 2015 second quarter with no outstanding borrowings. The Company’s debt, excluding capital leases, totaled $1.8 billion as of March 31, 2015.

For fiscal 2015 year-to-date, the Company’s capital expenditures totaled $39.3 million. Capital expenditures for the fiscal year 2015 are projected to be in the previously stated range of $95 million to $100 million, excluding acquisitions.

Inventory as of March 31, 2015 was $838.1 million, an increase of $18.4 million or growth of 2.2% from March 31, 2014 inventory. This increase is primarily due to sales growth from existing stores and additional inventory from new store openings.

Business Segment Results:

Sally Beauty Supply

Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Results for Sally Beauty Supply

  • Sales of $572.1 million, up 0.4% from $569.6 million in the fiscal 2014 second quarter. Sales growth was from net new store openings and same store sales growth. The unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange on sales was $17.9 million, or 3.1%.
  • Same store sales growth of 1.4% versus growth of 0.5% in the fiscal 2014 second quarter.
  • Gross margin of 55.3%, a 50 basis point increase from 54.8% in the fiscal 2014 second quarter.

  • Net store count increased by 154 over the fiscal 2014 second quarter for total store count of 3,631.

Sales growth in the fiscal 2015 second quarter was driven by new store openings and same store sales; this growth was partially offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange. Gross profit margin improvement of 50 basis points primarily resulted from improvement in the international business and favorable product mix shift in the U.S. business. Segment operating earnings and margin were favorably impacted by gross margin improvement which was partially offset by higher SG&A expenses associated with new store openings and higher depreciation.

Beauty Systems Group

Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Results for Beauty Systems Group

Sales growth for the Beauty Systems Group was primarily driven by growth in same store sales, improvement in the sales consultant business and new store openings; this growth was partially offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange. Growth in segment operating earnings and margin expansion was primarily due to SG&A leverage improvement and gross margin expansion.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release and the schedules hereto include the following financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., or GAAP, and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures: (1) Adjusted EBITDA; (2) Adjusted net earnings, earnings per share and diluted earnings per share and (3) Adjusted SG&A expenses. We have provided definitions below for these non-GAAP financial measures and have provided tables in the schedules hereto to reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted EBITDA – We define the measure Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net earnings before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, income taxes, share-based compensation and costs related to the Company’s previously disclosed data security incident.

Adjusted Net Earnings, Earnings Per Share, Diluted Earnings Per Share and SG&A Expenses – Adjusted net earnings, earnings per share, diluted earnings per share and SG&A expenses are GAAP net earnings, earnings per share, diluted earnings per share and SG&A expenses that exclude costs related to the Company’s previously disclosed data security incident for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

We have provided these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to our GAAP financial measures and believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with additional meaningful financial information regarding our operating performance. Our management and Board of Directors also use these non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures in the evaluation of our businesses and believe that these non-GAAP measures provide a meaningful measure to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Our same store sales are calculated in constant U.S. dollars and include internet-based sales and the effect of store expansions, if applicable, but do not generally include the sales of stores relocated until 14 months after the relocation. The sales of stores acquired are excluded from our same store sales calculation until 14 months after the acquisition.
