DELRAY BEACH, Fla., July 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetMed Express, Inc. (NASDAQ: PETS), Your Trusted Pet Health ExpertTM, today announced its financial results for its first quarter ended June 30, 2022. Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, were $70.2 million, compared to $79.3 million for first quarter in the prior year, a decrease of 11.5%. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $2.8 million, or $0.14 diluted earnings per share, compared to net income of $4.4 million, or $0.22 diluted earnings per share, for the prior year quarter ended June 30, 2021. Adjusted EBITDA (1) was $6.3 million, or $0.31 diluted earnings per share, for the current year quarter, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $7.1 million, or $0.35 diluted earnings per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a decrease to adjusted EBITDA of 10%.

“While disappointed with the quarterly sales results, I remain encouraged by some of the underlying trends we are seeing,” said Matt Hulett, CEO and President, “We knew early in the quarter that the colder temperatures, particularly in April, would have a material impact to sales due to the delay in our seasonally sensitive flea and tick business.  Absent that, we would have seen a stabilization of our business on a year-over-year basis especially in our loyal returning base.  The business strengthened throughout the quarter, including a recovery in our business later in the quarter with improving new and returning customers.”

Mr. Hulett added, “We are excited about our partnership with Vetster and pleased with how we quickly executed and launched the integration with this key strategic initiative in pet telemedicine.  We see this as an important milestone on our roadmap to transform PetMeds from a prescription eCommerce company into a broader pet health brand. We continue to invest in our infrastructure, which includes processes, systems, and people. We have just enabled a new data warehouse that gives us deep insights into our first party data, and we recently announced the newest member of my team, Christine Chambers, Chief Financial Officer who will be joining us on August 3rd.”

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share on the Company’s common stock. The dividend will be payable on August 19, 2022, to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 12, 2022. The Company intends to continue to pay regular quarterly dividends; however, the declaration and payment of future dividends is discretionary and will be subject to a determination by the Board of Directors each quarter.

This afternoon at 4:30 P.M. Eastern Time, the Company will host a conference call to review the quarter’s financial results. To access the call, which is open to the public, please dial (877) 407-0789 (toll free) or (201) 689-8562.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, we have disclosed here and elsewhere in this earnings release adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share, non-GAAP financial measures that we calculate as net income excluding; share-based compensation expense; depreciation and amortization; income tax provision; and interest income (expense). We have provided reconciliations below of adjusted EBITDA to net income and adjusted EBITDA per share to diluted earnings per share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We have included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share in this earnings release because they are key measures used by our management and board of directors to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparability across reporting periods by removing the effect of non-cash expenses. Accordingly, we believe that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.

We believe it is useful to exclude non-cash charges, such as, share-based compensation expense and depreciation and amortization from our adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share because the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations. We believe it is useful to exclude income tax provision; interest income (expense) which are not components of our core business operations. We also believe it is useful to exclude other expenses like the investment banking fee related to the Vetster partnership, which was executed in the June quarter. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share has limitations as financial measures, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future and adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share does not reflect capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditures;

  • Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share does not reflect share-based compensation. Share-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a material recurring expense in our business and an important part of our compensation strategy;

  • Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share does not reflect interest income (expense), net; or changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital;

  • Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share does not reflect certain expenses like the investment banking fee related to the Vetster partnership, which was executed in the June quarter; and

  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net income, net margin, and our other GAAP results. The following table presents a reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share for each of the periods indicated:
