PetIQ, Inc. Reports Record First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

First Quarter 2019 Net Sales Increased 29% Year-Over-Year to $148.4 Million
Reiterates Full Year 2019 Outlook
Enters Into Definitive Agreement to Acquire Perrigo Animal Health

EAGLE, Idaho, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetIQ, Inc. (“PetIQ” or the “Company”) (PETQ), a leading pet medication and wellness company, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

First Quarter 2019 Highlights Compared to Prior Year Period

  • Record first quarter net sales of $148.4 million, an increase of 29%
  • Net income of $2.3 million compared to a net loss of $4.0 million
  • Adjusted net income $6.0 million compared to $1.4 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $10.9 million compared to $5.6 million, an increase of 94%
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $54.4 million with total liquidity of $107.3 million
  • Enters Into Definitive Agreement to Acquire Perrigo Animal Health

Cord Christensen, PetIQ’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, “The strength of our diversified animal health products and services business fueled our first quarter financial results, outperforming the broader pet health and wellness category.  We generated record quarterly net sales growth with increases across all sales channels as a result of our complementary veterinarian product and service offerings. The demand for PetIQ’s affordable and accessible pet products and veterinarian services is strong and we remain committed to expanding our position to fuel our future growth and value for our shareholders.”

Mr. Christensen continued, “At PetIQ our mission is to make pets’ lives better through improved access to affordable pet health care and we are excited to have reached a definitive agreement to acquire Perrigo Animal Health. We believe this strategic and accretive acquisition will further the execution of our Follow the Pets long-term strategy by expanding the depth and breadth of veterinarian products offering as we build upon our existing business momentum to grow sales and importantly, grow the animal health and wellness category for many years to come.”

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net sales increased 29% to $148.4 million for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $115.1 million for the same period in the prior year. Product segment net sales were $126.1 million and Services segment revenues were $22.4 million in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in consolidated net sales reflects growth in existing retail partners, driven by the increase in the number of pet parents moving their pet health care needs to PetIQ’s products and services, the expansion of item counts and programs at existing customers, as well as growth within the Services segment and ownership of VIP for the full period. Pro forma sales as if VIP had been owned for the full period of 2018 would have grown 26%.

Gross profit was $24.7 million, an increase of 56%, compared to $15.9 million in the same period last year. Gross margin for the quarter was 16.7%. Adjusted gross profit was $26.2 million and adjusted gross margin was 17.6% for the first quarter 2019.  The GAAP gross margin to adjusted gross margin difference of 90 basis points is a result of the exclusion of non-same-store Services segment revenue contribution and related costs of sales.

Net income was $2.3 million and adjusted net income was $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted net income primarily excludes stock-based compensation expense, tax expense, fair value adjustment to contingent note, acquisition expenses, and operating losses associated with the 25 non-comparable newly opened veterinary wellness centers, one new host partner, and seven regional offices that have been open less than six trailing quarters.

First quarter adjusted EBITDA increased 95% to $10.9 million, representing an adjusted EBITDA margin of 7.3%, compared to $5.6 million, representing a 4.9% margin, for the same period in the prior year.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was a result of higher net sales resulting in increased adjusted gross profit and increased leverage of general and administrative expenses.

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted net income, and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures.  The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with additional insight into and measurement of its entry into the veterinary services business following the acquisition of VIP in January 2018.  In the Services segment, the Company is providing a “same-store sales” adjustment to reflect revenue and costs for veterinary clinics and regions open for at least six trailing quarters.  The Company believes this will provide useful information to investors as these veterinary clinics and wellness centers mature and move into the comparable store base.  See “Non-GAAP Measures” for a definition of these measures and the financial tables that accompany this release for a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Segment Results

Products: For the first quarter of 2019, the Product segment net sales increased 29% to $126.1 million and operating income increased 45% to $13.0 million.  This compares to Product segment sales and operating income of $97.9 million and $8.9 million, respectively, for the first quarter of 2018.  Product segment net sales were driven by ongoing strength of the Company’s prescription drug programs within retail partner pharmacies both in-store and online, as well as greater SKU penetration within existing accounts.

Services: For the first quarter of 2019, the Services segment net revenues and operating income were $22.4 million and $3.0 million, respectively.  This compares to Service segment net revenues and operating income of $17.2 million and a loss of $0.4 million, respectively, for the first quarter of 2018. Services segment growth was achieved from increases in all substantive metrics including pets per clinic, revenue per pet and revenue per clinic.

In-line with the PetIQ’s new veterinarian wellness centers opening plan for 2019 it did not have any new openings during the first quarter of 2019 and remains on track to open 80 new wellness centers in 2019.  There were a total of 34 veterinarian wellness centers as of March 31, 2019.  In preparation for its veterinarian wellness center expansion, the Company opened two new regional offices during the quarter for a total of 36 at the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Cash and Debt

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $54.4 million, plus availability on its revolving credit facility of $52.9 million, equating to $107.3 million, which the Company defines as total liquidity. The Company’s long-term debt balance, which is largely comprised of its revolving credit facility and term loan, was $115.3 million as of March 31, 2019.  From a working capital perspective, accounts receivable increased $20.5 million compared to December 31, 2018, in line with the Company’s strong sales growth. Inventory increased $20.4 million compared to the prior year as a result of inventory needed to support the growth in the Company’s business.

Enters Into Definitive Agreement to Acquire Perrigo Animal Health

The Company also announced today in a separate press release that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Perrigo Animal Health, a division of Perrigo Company plc (PRGO); (PRGO.TA), including products sold under brands such as PetArmor®, Sentry®, and Sergeant’s®. Perrigo Animal Health provides vet quality solutions to consumers at retail with a commitment to making high quality, affordable pet care products for animals and their owners. The $185 million cash transaction has been unanimously approved by PetIQ’s Board of Directors. The purchase price reflects an adjusted EBITDA multiple of 9.0x, based on estimated fiscal year 2020, including potential run-rate cost synergies. PetIQ plans to finance the transaction with $25 million of existing cash on hand, $145 million of new term loan financing committed by Ares Capital Management, with the remaining balance to be financed through PetIQ’s existing revolving credit facility with East West Bank. Pro forma for the transaction, net debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio is expected to be approximately 4.5x1. PetIQ is committed to reducing the leverage at closing using a combination of organic growth and free cash flow. PetIQ expects to realize cash tax savings related to the depreciation and amortization of assets acquired, of approximately $18 million on a present value basis. PetIQ expects that this acquisition will be accretive to earnings in the first twelve months following closing, and thereafter. This transaction is expected to close during the third quarter of 2019, subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of U.S. anti-trust approval.

1 Pro forma net leverage defined as PetIQ’s net debt as of March 31, 2019 as adjusted for the proposed transaction, covered by expected 2019 Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA.

Outlook

PetIQ is reiterating its full year 2019 financial outlook for its existing product and services business on a stand-alone basis and will provide a 2019 annual and long-term outlook including the contribution from Perrigo Animal Health post-closing of the transaction. 

On a standalone basis or the full year 2019 the Company continues to expect the following:

  • Consolidated net sales of at least $600 million, an increase greater than 14% from growth of 98% in 2018
  • Adjusted EBITDA* of at least $51 million, an increase greater than 23% from growth of 86% in 2018
  • The opening of at least 80 veterinarian wellness clinics

For full year 2020 based on the combination of PetIQ and Perrigo Animal Health the Company is introducing the following outlook:

  • Consolidated net sales of approximately $780 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA* of approximately $78 million

The Company is reiterating its long-term 2023 growth objectives on a stand-alone basis, including:

  • Net sales of approximately $1.0 billion
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of greater than 15% *
  • Wellness center locations of 1,000

*The Company does not provide guidance for the most directly comparable GAAP measure, net income, and similarly cannot provide a reconciliation between its forecasted adjusted EBITDA and net income metrics without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of reliable estimates for certain items. These items are not within the Company’s control and may vary greatly between periods and could significantly impact future financial results.

Conference Call and Webcast

The Company will host a conference call and webcast where members of the executive management team will discuss these results with additional comments and details today, May 8, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, such as statements about our plans, objectives, expectations, assumptions or future events. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "anticipate," "estimate," "plan," "project," "continuing," "ongoing," "expect," "believe," "intend," "may," "will," "should," "could" and similar expressions.  Forward-looking statements involve estimates, assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from any future results, performances, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to, our ability to successfully grow our business through acquisitions; our dependency on a limited number of customers; our ability to implement our growth strategy effectively; disruptions in our manufacturing and distribution chains; competition from veterinarians and others in our industry; reputational damage to our brands; economic trends and spending on pets; the effectiveness of our marketing and trade promotion programs; recalls or withdrawals of our products or product liability claims; our ability to manage our manufacturing and supply chain effectively; disruptions in our manufacturing and distribution chains; our ability to introduce new products and improve existing products; our failure to protect our intellectual property; costs associated with governmental regulation; our ability to keep and retain key employees; our ability to sustain profitability; and the risks set forth under the “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and other reports filed time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results.  The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which the statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Consequently, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, PetIQ uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin.

Adjusted net income consists of GAAP Net income (loss) adjusted for tax expense, acquisition expenses, purchase accounting adjustments, integration costs and costs of discontinued clinics, new clinic launch expense, and stock based compensation expense.  Adjusted Net Income is utilized by management: (i) to compare operations of the Company prior to our initial public offering and (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies. 

Adjusted gross profit consists of GAAP gross profit adjusted for purchase accounting adjustments, gross profit (loss) on veterinarian clinics and wellness centers that are not part of same store sales, and new clinic launch expense.  Adjusted gross profit is utilized by management to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus acquisition costs, stock based compensation expense, purchase accounting, inventory adjustment, fair value adjustment to contingent consideration, new clinic launch expenses, integration and costs of discontinued clinics, and operations of non-same-store operations as defined below. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Adjusted EBITDA stated as a percentage of Net sales.  Adjusted EBITDA is utilized by management: (i) as a factor in evaluating management's performance when determining incentive compensation and (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.  The Company presents EBITDA because it is a necessary component for computing Adjusted EBITDA.

We believe that the use of Adjusted Net income, Adjusted gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin provide additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends. In addition, you should be aware when evaluating Adjusted Net Income, adjusted gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, that in the future we may incur expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. Our presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by these or other unusual or non-recurring items. Our computation of Adjusted Net Income, adjusted gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies do not calculate Adjusted Net Income, adjusted gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in the same manner.  Our management does not, and you should not, consider Adjusted Net Income, adjusted gross profit or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of Adjusted Net Income, adjusted gross profit and Adjusted EBITDA is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements.  See a reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measure, in the financial tables that accompany this release.

The Company considers its same-store portfolio to consist of only those retail service regional offices, mobile community clinics provided within host partners, and wellness centers that have been operating for at least six trailing quarters.

Definitions

  1. Mobile community clinic
    • A mobile community clinic is defined as an event, or a visit to a retail host partner location, by the Company’s veterinary staff utilizing the Company’s mobile service vehicles.  Clinic locations and schedules vary by location and seasonally. Due to the non-standardization of the Company’s mobile community clinics, these clinics are grouped as part of geographic regions.  New regions and host partners are excluded from the same store sale calculation until they have six full consecutive quarters of operations.
  2. Veterinarian Wellness center
    • A veterinarian wellness center is a physical fixed service location within the existing footprint of one of our retail partners.  These veterinarian wellness centers operate under a variety of brands based on the needs of our partner locations, including the recently launched VetIQ clinics at Walmart.
  3. Regional offices
    • Regional offices support the operations of the Company’s services segment which include its mobile veterinarian community clinics and wellness centers.  These offices are staffed with field management and other operational staff.
