CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
RH (RH) today announced it has repaid the balance of its $350 million in 0.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 at maturity. The Company used existing cash balances and borrowings under its revolving credit facility to complete the repayment on June 17, 2019 as expected.
CEO Gary Friedman commented, “Looking back, had we not been opportunistic in responding to favorable market conditions through our convertible notes financings in 2014 and 2015, we would not have been in a position to repurchase $1 billion of our stock when it was undervalued during 2017, which has proven to be an excellent allocation of capital for the long-term benefit of our shareholders. We are regularly evaluating various low interest rate financing alternatives and expect to follow the same opportunistic capital allocation approach in the future regarding both sources and uses of capital.”
As previously reported, the Company continues to expect (i) to repay its $300 million of 0.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020 at maturity in July, 2020 with internally generated cash as well as borrowing under its existing credit facilities, and (ii) to end its fiscal 2019 year with net debt to trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA of approximately 2.0x.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses various non-GAAP financial measures including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (collectively, “non-GAAP financial measures”). We compute these measures by adjusting the applicable GAAP measures to remove the impact of certain recurring and non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in this press release may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures, including similarly titled measures, used by other companies.
For more information on the Company’s reports of financial results that include these and other non-GAAP financial measures, please see the Company’s previously reported financial results which include a Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures tables regarding previously reported non-GAAP financial measures included EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Such accompanying tables include details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.
