CHARLOTTE, N.C.--()--Driven Brands Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: DRVN) (“Driven Brands” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the first quarter ending March 30, 2024.

For the first quarter, Driven Brands delivered revenue of $572 million, up 2% versus the prior year. System-wide sales were $1.6 billion, up 7% versus the prior year primarily driven by 0.7% same store sales growth and 144 net new units.

Net Income was $4.3 million or $0.03 per diluted share versus $29.7 million or $0.17 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted Net Income1 was $38.1 million or $0.23 per diluted share versus $39.1 million or $0.23 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA1 was $131.0 million up 6% versus the prior year. Cash provided by operating activities increased $23.5 million or 64% to $60.3 million compared to $36.8 million in the prior year.

We are pleased with our strong performance in the first quarter of 2024. The Maintenance segment once again delivered exceptional results, largely driven by Take 5 Oil Change, which saw same store sales growth of 7%. We increased total company revenue, managed expenses and achieved our 13th consecutive quarter of same store sales growth,” said Jonathan Fitzpatrick, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Looking ahead to the remainder of 2024, we are confident in our full-year outlook and committed to prudently deploying capital and paying down debt,” Fitzpatrick concluded.

Mr. Ferrera’s resignation will be effective after the filing of the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2024. Driven Brands has initiated a comprehensive search with the assistance of a leading executive recruitment firm to identify Mr. Ferrera’s successor.

Effective upon Mr. Ferrera’s departure, Joel Arnao, Senior Vice President of FP&A, Treasury and Investor Relations, has been appointed as interim Chief Financial Officer, and Michael Beland, Senior Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer, has been designated as principal financial officer. Mr. Ferrera will be available to support transitional needs following his departure.

Mr. Fitzpatrick added, “We appreciate Gary’s contributions to Driven Brands, which have been additive to our collective efforts to position the business for long-term value creation. The Driven Brands board and management team extend our sincere thanks to Gary and wish him well in his next chapter. Driven Brands is fortunate to have a strong bench of talent, and we appreciate that Joel and Michael have agreed to take on additional responsibilities while we undertake our CFO search. Joel and Michael are prominent members of our financial team and have a deep understanding of our business, strategy and operations. I am confident this will be a seamless transition for our stakeholders.”

Mr. Ferrera’s resignation does not reflect any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices, or any issues regarding the Company’s accounting policies or practices.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The following information provides definitions and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this earnings release to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company has provided this non-GAAP financial information, which is not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP, as information supplemental and in addition to the financial measures presented in this earnings release that are calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Such non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the GAAP financial measures presented in this earnings release. The non-GAAP financial measures in this earnings release may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Outlook

Driven Brands includes Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) and Adjusted Earnings per Share (“Adjusted EPS”) in the Company’s Fiscal Year 2024 Outlook. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures and have not been reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measures because it is not possible to do so without unreasonable efforts due to the uncertainty and potential variability of reconciling items, which are dependent on future events and often outside of management’s control and which could be significant. Because such items cannot be reasonably predicted with the level of precision required, we are unable to provide an outlook for the comparable GAAP measures. Forward-looking estimates of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are made in a manner consistent with the relevant definitions and assumptions noted herein and in our filings with the SEC.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS are considered non-GAAP financial measures under the SEC’s rules because they exclude certain amounts included in the net income attributable to Driven Brands common stockholders and diluted earnings per share attributable to Driven Brands common stockholders calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS are meaningful measures to share with investors because they facilitate comparison of the current period performance with that of the comparable prior period. In addition, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS afford investors a view of what management considers to be Driven Brands’ core earnings performance as well as the ability to make a more informed assessment of such earnings performance with that of the prior period.

The tables below reflect the calculation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share for the three months ended March 30, 2024, compared to the three months ended April 1, 2023.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share is calculated under the two-class method. Under the two-class method, adjusted earnings per share is calculated using adjusted net income attributable to common shares, which is derived by reducing adjusted net income by the amount attributable to participating securities. Adjusted Net Income attributable to participating securities used in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculation was less than $1 million for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) rules because it excludes certain amounts included in net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a meaningful measure to share with investors because it facilitates comparison of the current period performance with that of the comparable prior period. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA affords investors a view of what management considers to be Driven Brand’s core operating performance as well as the ability to make a more informed assessment of such operating performance as compared with that of the prior period.

Please see the company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2023, filed with the SEC on February 28, 2024, for additional information on Adjusted EBITDA. The tables below reflect the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 30, 2024, compared to the three months ended April 1, 2023.

(c)

Includes non-cash amortization expenses relating to cloud computing arrangements.

Represents foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net that primarily related to the remeasurement of our intercompany loans as well as gains and losses on cross currency swaps and forward contracts.

(f)

Relates to (gains) losses, net on sale leasebacks, impairment of certain fixed assets and operating lease right-of-use assets related to closed and underperforming locations, assets held for sale, and lease exit costs and other costs associated with stores that were closed prior to the respective lease termination dates.

(g)

Consists of amortization related to acquired intangible assets as reflected within depreciation and amortization in the unaudited consolidated statement of operations.

(h)

Represents valuation allowances on income tax carryforwards in certain domestic jurisdictions that are not more likely than not to be realized.

(i)

Represents the tax impact of adjustments associated with the reconciling items between net income and Adjusted Net Income, excluding the provision for uncertain tax positions.
