Branded Consumer Performance Continues to Drive Record First Quarter Operating Results

Raises Full Year Guidance

Provides Update on Potential Change in Tax Classification

WESTPORT, Conn., April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compass Diversified (NYSE: CODI) (“CODI” or the “Company”), an owner of leading middle market businesses, announced today its consolidated operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Reported net sales of $461.6 million for the first quarter 2021;

  • Reported net income of $22.0 million for the first quarter 2021;

  • Reported non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $88.0 million for the first quarter 2021;

  • Reported Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $36.4 million for the first quarter 2021, and non-GAAP Cash Flow Available for Distribution and Reinvestment (“CAD’) of $46.2 million for the first quarter 2021;

  • Completed a refinancing of its credit facilities concurrent with the issuance of $1.0 billion of 5.250% senior unsecured notes due 2029;

  • Paid a first quarter 2021 cash distribution of $0.36 per share on CODI's common shares in April 2021; and

  • Declared quarterly cash distributions of $0.453125 per share on the Company's 7.250% Series A Preferred Shares, $0.4921875 per share on the Company's 7.875% Series B Preferred Shares, and $0.4921875 per share on the Company's 7.875% Series C Preferred Shares (the “Preferred Distributions”). The Preferred Distributions are payable on April 30, 2021.

“CODI’s outstanding performance in the first quarter, highlighted by record CAD and strong cash flow growth, was driven by impressive results from our branded consumer businesses, as we increased revenue and earnings across all of our consumer subsidiaries,” said Elias Sabo, CEO of Compass Diversified. “Last year’s acquisitions of two rapidly growing businesses, Marucci and BOA, underscore our success capitalizing on periods of market dislocations and have served to offset typical first quarter seasonality in our portfolio. We have once again increased our annual guidance and continue to take steps to further position our leading and diversified group of consumer and industrial businesses for long-term success.”

Mr. Sabo continued, “With our permanent capital structure, we will remain both disciplined and opportunistic in our capital deployment as we partner with, invest in and grow leading middle market businesses capable of performing through economic cycles. In addition, as part of our ongoing efforts to lower our cost of capital and unlock shareholder value, we are continuing to explore a potential tax reclassification where we may elect to be taxed as a corporation, rather than a partnership. We believe this important change would simplify our structure and enable a broader set of both institutional and retail shareholders to invest in CODI.”

Operating Results

Net sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $461.6 million, as compared to $333.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $22.0 million, as compared to $4.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below) for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $88.0 million, as compared to $46.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter 2021, as compared to prior year periods, was primarily a result of our 2020 acquisitions of BOA and Marucci, as well as strong performance by our branded consumer companies.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, CODI reported Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $36.4 million, as compared to Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $34.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

CODI reported CAD (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below) of $46.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, as compared to $17.7 million for the prior year's comparable quarter. CODI's CAD is calculated after taking into account all interest expenses, cash taxes paid, preferred distributions and maintenance capital expenditures, and includes the operating results of each of our businesses for the periods during which CODI owned them. However, CAD excludes the gains from monetizing interests in CODI's subsidiaries, which have totaled over $1.0 billion since going public in 2006.

CODI's weighted average number of shares outstanding for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was 64.9 million, and for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was 59.9 million.

As of March 31, 2021, CODI had approximately $63.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, $5 million outstanding on its revolver and $1.0 billion outstanding in 5.250% Senior Notes due 2029.

As of March 31, 2021, CODI had proceeds deposited with a trustee of $647.7 million and $600.0 million of current portion of long-term debt. These balances relate to the redemption of the 8.000% Senior Notes due 2026 which occurred on April 1, 2021.

The Company has no significant debt maturities until 2029 and had net borrowing availability of $593.7 million on March 31, 2021 under its revolving credit facility.

First Quarter 2021 Distributions

On April 1, 2021, CODI's Board of Directors (the “Board”) declared a first quarter distribution of $0.36 per share on the Company's common shares. The cash distribution was paid on April 22, 2021 to all holders of record of common shares as of April 15, 2021. Since its IPO in 2006, CODI has paid a cumulative distribution of $20.7552 per common share.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.453125 per share on the Company’s 7.250% Series A Preferred Shares (the “Series A Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series A Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, January 30, 2021, up to, but excluding, April 30, 2021. The distribution for such period will be paid on April 30, 2021 to all holders of record of Series A Preferred Shares as of April 15, 2021.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.4921875 per share on the Company’s 7.875% Series B Preferred Shares (the “Series B Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series B Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, January 30, 2021, up to, but excluding, April 30, 2021. The distribution for such period will be paid on April 30, 2021 to all holders of record of Series B Preferred Shares as of April 15, 2021.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.4921875 per share on the Company’s 7.875% Series C Preferred Shares (the “Series C Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series C Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, January 30, 2021, up to, but excluding, April 30, 2021. The distribution for such period will be paid on April 30, 2021 to all holders of record of Series C Preferred Shares as of April 15, 2021.

Guidance Update

As a result of the strong financial performance in the first quarter, as well as the Company’s expectations for the remainder of 2021, the Company expects its current subsidiaries to produce consolidated Adjusted EBITDA (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below) for the full calendar year of 2021 of between $325 million and $345 million. This estimate is based on the summation of our expectations for our current subsidiaries in 2021, absent additional acquisitions or divestitures, and excludes corporate expenses such as interest expense, management fees and corporate overhead. In addition, our Payout Ratio (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below), defined as our prior year's annual distribution to common shareholders divided by our 2021 estimate for CAD, is anticipated to be between 60% and 70%.

Tax Structure Update

The Company continues to analyze a potential change in its tax classification, including potentially “checking-the-box” to elect to be taxed as a C-Corporation instead of a partnership. If undertaken in 2021, this election would likely result in taxable capital gain income that would be passed through to shareholders which would create current tax liability for the 2021 tax year that shareholders would see on a final IRS Schedule K-1 sent out in 2022. This taxable capital gain would also provide shareholders the benefit of increasing their basis in the Company’s stock, effectively reducing their future taxable gain by a similar amount, when they sell the Company’s shares. In light of this additional current tax burden to shareholders, the Company would expect to pay a special distribution of approximately $0.88 per share should CODI effectuate this tax election in 2021. This special distribution, along with the Company’s other regular quarterly distributions, CODI expects, would more than offset shareholder 2021 current tax liability absent any significant capital gain tax if the Company divests a subsidiary. This taxable capital gain to shareholders should provide a substantial tax benefit to the Company under C-Corporation taxation as CODI expects it would allow us to step up the basis in our interests in our subsidiaries, by this same amount, which would reduce future capital gain tax at the C-Corporation when the Company potentially opportunistically divests our subsidiaries in the future.

While CODI’s Board of Directors sets our distribution amount quarterly and will continue to do so after this potential tax classification change, the Company expects to adjust our distribution policy if CODI undertakes this tax classification change. In the event the Company elects to be treated as C-Corporation for tax purposes, CODI will no longer pass through income to shareholders and, instead, CODI would pay tax to the IRS. As a result of CODI’s assumption of tax liability, CODI currently estimates that the Company would recommend that our Board of Directors reduce the Company’s annual distribution from $1.44 per share per year to approximately $1.00 per share per year. Management expects that its recommendation to CODI’s Board of Directors would be that CODI’s payment remain at $0.36 per share for any declared quarterly distributions to be paid in each of July and October, and thereafter to be reduced to approximately $0.25 per share for any declared distributions to be paid commencing in January of 2022. After the potential tax classification change, CODI believes any quarterly payments will generally be treated as qualified dividends, for each shareholder that has met the requisite holding period requirements, to the extent CODI has earnings and profits.

The Company is continuing to analyze certain elements of this potential transaction, which is subject to a number of contingencies and is subject to change. In addition to final approval by CODI’s Board of Directors, the Company will need special shareholder approval to effectuate this tax classification change. If CODI finally decides to move forward with this change, the Company expects to hold the special meeting and, assuming CODI receives all necessary approvals, could check-the-box to be taxed as a C-Corporation sometime late in the third quarter of 2021.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure used by the Company to assess its performance. We have reconciled Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss) on the attached schedules. We consider Net Income (Loss) to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and reflects important financial measures as it excludes the effects of items which reflect the impact of long-term investment decisions, rather than the performance of near-term operations. When compared to Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA is limited in that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capital assets used in generating revenues of our businesses or the non-cash charges associated with impairments, as well as certain cash charges. This presentation also allows investors to view the performance of our businesses in a manner similar to the methods used by us and the management of our businesses, provides additional insight into our operating results and provides a measure for evaluating targeted businesses for acquisition. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is also useful in measuring our ability to service debt and other payment obligations.

CAD is a non-GAAP measure used by the Company to assess its performance, as well as its ability to sustain quarterly distributions. We have reconciled CAD to Net Income (Loss) and Cash Flow from Operating Activities on the attached schedules. We consider Net Income (Loss) and Cash Flow from Operating Activities to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to CAD.

CAD is calculated after taking into account all interest expense, cash taxes paid and maintenance capital expenditures, and includes the operating results of each of our businesses for the periods during which CODI owned them. We believe that CAD provides investors additional information to enable them to evaluate our performance and ability to make anticipated quarterly distributions.

Payout Ratio is a non-GAAP measure defined as our prior year's annual distribution to common shareholders divided by our CAD. We believe the Payout Ratio provides investors additional information to enable them to evaluate our performance and our ability to sustain quarterly distributions.

In reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K, we have not reconciled 2021 Adjusted EBITDA or 2021 Payout Ratio (which requires an estimate of 2021 CAD) to their comparable GAAP measure because we do not provide guidance on Net Income (Loss), Cash Flow Provided by Operating Activities or the applicable reconciling items as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, these items. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

None of Adjusted EBITDA, CAD nor Payout Ratio is meant to be a substitute for GAAP measures and may be different from or otherwise inconsistent with non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
