Savers Value Village, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Sales increased 3.8%, or 5.0% in constant currency1

Comparable store sales increased 3.7%

Sales yield2 increased 5.6% to $1.50

Board of Directors authorizes $50 million share repurchase program

BELLEVUE, Wash., November 09, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Savers Value Village, Inc. (NYSE: SVV), (the "Company") today announced financial results for the thirteen weeks ended September 30, 2023 (the "third quarter").

Highlights for the Third Quarter, Compared to the thirteen weeks ended October 1, 2022

  • Net sales increased 3.8% to $392.7 million. Constant currency net sales1 increased 5.0% to $397.4 million.

  • Comparable store sales increased 3.7%, with the United States and Canada up 3.3% and 4.3%, respectively.

  • Sales yield2 increased 5.6% to $1.50 per pound.

  • The Company opened three new stores during the third quarter, ending the third quarter with 321 stores and increasing its store count by 3.9%.

  • Net loss and net loss per diluted share were $15.6 million and $0.10, respectively.

  • Adjusted net income1 and Adjusted net income per diluted share1 were $26.5 million and $0.16, respectively.

  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA")1 increased 6.3% to $91.0 million, and Adjusted EBITDA margin1 increased 60 basis points to 23.2%. Changes in foreign currency rates negatively impacted Adjusted EBITDA1 by $1.5 million during the third quarter.

  • Total active members enrolled in our U.S. and Canadian loyalty programs increased 10% to 5.2 million at the end of the third quarter.

1 Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, as well as amounts presented on a constant currency basis, are not measures recognized under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). For additional information on our use of non-GAAP financial measures, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures", "Constant Currency" and the accompanying financial tables which reconcile GAAP financial measures to these non-GAAP measures below.

2 Sales yield is presented on a currency neutral and comparable store sales growth basis. We define sales yield as retail sales generated per pound of processed volume.

Mark Walsh, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We had a strong third quarter and are pleased with our performance and execution of our business strategy. Constant currency net sales increased 5%, comparable store sales grew 3.7% on increased transactions, and despite a $1.5 million negative impact from foreign currency, we grew Adjusted EBITDA by more than 6% to $91 million. Donations and supply of goods remained very strong in the quarter, and for the first time in Savers’ 70-year history, we reached over 5 million members in our loyalty program, an increase of 10% over last year. On the demand side, we experienced strong and consistent demand for hard goods throughout much of the quarter and saw moderating demand for soft goods with abnormally high temperatures throughout many parts of North America in September. We adjusted our soft goods processing volumes to better align expenses with demand levels, maintain strong profitability levels, and deliver against our Adjusted EBITDA targets."

Mr. Walsh continued, "Over the past several years, we have made significant structural changes that allow us to maximize Adjusted EBITDA by focusing on higher quality goods and productivity measures that align our inventory, processing volumes and labor expenses with demand trends. This flexibility and adaptability of our unique model enables us to drive profitable growth at scale."

Share Repurchase Authorization

Savers Value Village announced today the authorization of a share repurchase program of up to $50 million of the Company’s common stock. Under the program, Savers may purchase shares from time to time in compliance with applicable securities laws, that may include Securities Act Rule 10b-18. The timing and amount of any shares purchased will be based upon a variety of factors, including the share price of the common stock, general market conditions, alternative uses for capital, Savers’ financial performance, and other considerations. The share repurchase program does not obligate Savers to purchase any minimum number of shares, and the program may be suspended, modified, or discontinued at any time without prior notice. Any repurchases will be funded by available cash and cash equivalents.

Fiscal 2023 Outlook

The Company is updating certain components of its annual guidance for the fifty-two weeks ended December 30, 2023 ("fiscal 2023") from its quarterly earnings release on August 10, 2023 as follows:

  • The opening of approximately 12 new stores (unchanged);

  • Total net sales of approximately $1.49 billion (from $1.51 billion);

  • Comparable store sales growth of 0% to 1.0% for the fourth quarter (no previous guidance), resulting in a fiscal 2023 increase of approximately 4.0% (from 5.0%);

  • Net income of approximately $24 million (from $23 million);

  • Adjusted net income of approximately $99 million1 (from $98 million);

  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $320 million2 (unchanged);

  • Capital expenditures in the range of $100 to $105 million (unchanged); and

  • GAAP-based diluted weighted average common shares outstanding of approximately 157 million (from 160 million).

Since providing our prior outlook, our estimated average exchange rate for the fourth quarter has decreased to $0.725 from $0.75 for the Canadian dollar, negatively impacting the Company’s fourth quarter sales and adjusted EBITDA estimates by approximately $6 million and $1 million, respectively.

1 Adjusted net income is not a measure recognized under U.S. GAAP. For additional information on our use of non-GAAP financial measures, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the accompanying financial tables which reconcile GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP measures below.

2 We have not reconciled guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP financial measure because we cannot determine the probable significance of the various reconciling items, as certain items are outside of our control and cannot be reasonably predicted due to the fact that these items could vary significantly period to period. Accordingly, reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable effort.

Initial Public Offering

On July 3, 2023, the Company completed its initial public offering ("IPO") for the sale of 18.8 million shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $18.00 per share. On July 3, 2023 and July 5, 2023, respectively, the Company used the net proceeds from its IPO together with cash on its balance sheet to redeem $55.0 million aggregate principal amount of Notes and to repay $252.4 million aggregate principal amount of outstanding borrowings under the Term Loan Facility. In addition to paying accrued interest on these borrowings, the Company also paid a premium of 3%, or $1.7 million, on the partial redemption of the Notes. These transactions resulted in a loss on extinguishment of debt of $10.6 million. At the end of the third quarter, the Company’s net leverage was 2.2x which we define as total debt less unrestricted cash, divided by Adjusted EBITDA for the trailing twelve months.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements can be identified by words such as "could," "may," "might," "will," "likely," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "seeks," "believes," "estimates," "expects," "continues," "projects" and similar references to future periods, or by the inclusion of forecasts or projections, the outlook for the Company’s future business, prospects, financial performance, including the amount and timing of any repurchases of common stock under its share repurchase program, its fiscal 2023 outlook or financial guidance, and industry outlook. Forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current expectations and assumptions regarding its business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, by their nature, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. As a result, the Company’s actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include regional, national or global political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory conditions, including, but not limited to, legislation, national trade policy, and the following: the Company’s failure to adequately procure and manage its inventory or anticipate consumer demand; changes in consumer confidence and spending; risks associated with its status as a "brick and mortar" only retailer; risks associated with intense competition; its failure to open new profitable stores, or successfully enter new markets on a timely basis or at all; the risks associated with doing business with international manufacturers and suppliers including, but not limited to, transportation and shipping challenges, and potential increases in tariffs on imported goods; outbreak of viruses or widespread illness, including the continued impact of COVID-19 and continuing or renewed regulatory responses thereto; risks associated with heightened geopolitical instability due to the Russia/Ukraine conflict; its inability to operate its stores due to civil unrest and related protests or disturbances; its failure to properly hire and to retain key personnel and other qualified personnel; its inability to obtain favorable lease terms for its properties; the failure to timely acquire, develop and open, the loss of, or disruption or interruption in the operations of, its centralized distribution centers; fluctuations in comparable store sales and results of operations, including on a quarterly basis; risks associated with its lack of operations in the growing online retail marketplace; risks associated with litigation, the expense of defense, and the potential for adverse outcomes; its inability to successfully develop or implement its marketing, advertising and promotional efforts; the seasonal nature of its business; risks associated with the timely and effective deployment, protection, and defense of computer networks and other electronic systems, including e-mail; changes in government regulations, procedures and requirements; risks associated with natural disasters, whether or not caused by climate change; and its ability to service indebtedness and to comply with its financial covenants together with each of the other factors set forth under the heading "Risk Factors" in its filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. The Company is not under any obligation (and specifically disclaims any such obligation) to update or alter these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company has included these non-GAAP measures in this press release as these are key measures used by its management and its board of directors to evaluate its operating performance and the effectiveness of its business strategies, make budgeting decisions, and evaluate compensation decisions. Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin have limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. There are limitations to using non-GAAP financial measures, including those amounts presented in accordance with the Company’s definitions of Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, as they may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by its competitors, because not all companies and analysts calculate Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in the same manner. Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin alongside other financial performance measures, including, as applicable, net income and the Company’s other GAAP results. The Company presents Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin because we consider these meaningful measures to share with investors because they best allow comparison of the performance of one period with that of another period. In addition, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin afford investors a view of what management considers its operating performance to be and the ability to make a more informed assessment of such operating performance as compared with that of the prior period.

Adjusted net income is defined as net (loss) income excluding the impact of loss on extinguishment of debt, non-recurring stock-based compensation expense, transaction costs, dividend-related bonus, certain other expenses, and the tax effect on the above adjustments. The Company defines Adjusted net income per diluted share as Adjusted net income divided by diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income before interest expense, net, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude loss on extinguishment of debt, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash occupancy-related costs, lease intangible asset expense, pre-opening expenses, store closing expenses, executive transition costs, transaction costs, dividend-related bonus, and certain other adjustments. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales.

Constant Currency

The Company reports certain operating results on a constant-currency basis in order to facilitate period-to-period comparisons of its results without regard to the impact of fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates. The term foreign currency exchange rates refer to the exchange rates used to translate the Company's operating results for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. Dollar into U.S. Dollars. Because the Company is a global company, foreign currency exchange rates used for translation may have a significant effect on its reported results. In general, the Company's financial results are affected positively by a weaker U.S. Dollar and are affected negatively by a stronger U.S. Dollar. References to operating results on a constant-currency basis mean operating results without the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

The Company believes disclosure of constant-currency results is helpful to investors because it facilitates period-to-period comparisons of its results by increasing the transparency of its underlying performance by excluding the impact of fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates. However, constant-currency results are non-GAAP financial measures and are not meant to be considered as an alternative or substitute for comparable measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Constant-currency results have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP, are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Constant-currency results have limitations in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. During the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 30, 2023, as compared to the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 1, 2022, the U.S. dollar was stronger relative to the Canadian and Australian dollars which resulted in an unfavorable foreign currency impact on our operating results. To present constant currency information, our current operating results in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are converted into U.S. dollars using the average exchange rates from the comparative prior period rather than the actual average exchange rates in effect.
