Sustained Market Demand, Combined with Agile Response to Global Supply Chain Pressures, Drives Continued, Strong Operating Results, Highlighted by 15% Increase in Net Sales

Company Raises Earnings Outlook for Fiscal 2021

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Snap One Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SNPO) (“Snap One,” the “Company,” “we” or “our”), a provider of smart living products, services, and software to professional integrators, reported financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended September 24, 2021.

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Opened three new domestic local branches in attractive geographic markets, including Hollywood, FL, Austin, TX, and Nashville, TN. The Company currently operates a nationwide footprint of 30 locations as of quarter end; Snap One plans to continue expanding its omnichannel distribution presence domestically and internationally going forward.

  • Upgraded new Control 4 OS 3.2.3 software to increase connectivity and search speed for integrator efficiency as well as to provide end consumers with more control and personalization of their systems. This latest upgrade brings new Composer Pro features designed to make installations faster and more efficient and adds fundamental platform enhancements for commercial deployments, including native support for multi-display rooms and video walls.

  • Updated OvrC remote management platform to bring improved notification accuracy, more actionable information, and better, faster user interface navigation.

  • Continued product innovation including the release of the Company’s new Control4 Contemporary Lighting lineup with elevated lighting control and aesthetics, providing end consumers with a modern, sophisticated and more energy efficient solution.

  • Expanded third-party product portfolio including the addition of popular audio brands Denon and Marantz from Sound United. These new brands complement other recent additions such as KEF, Klipsch, Parasound, and Yamaha. Through its proprietary and third-party brands, Snap One has built and curated a leading lineup of audio solutions to meet the needs of its integrators and end consumers.

  • Hired new Chief People Officer Kathleen Creech to lead people initiatives. Ms. Creech most recently served as Chief Human Resources Officer for Manhattan & Associates (NASDAQ: MANH), a leading supply chain software company.

  • Announced three new board member appointments of Adalio Sanchez, President of S Group Advisory LLC; Amy Steel Vanden-Eykel, Senior Vice President of Merchandising & Marketing for Staples, Inc.; and Dr. Annmarie Neal, Partner and Chief Talent Officer at Hellman & Friedman to its Board of Directors, effective June, July, and January 2021, respectively. Supporting the Company’s expanded responsibilities and mission following its recent public listing in July, these new board members serve on various committees and provide strategic oversight to the business.

Management Commentary
“Over the last few months, our business has continued to show great resiliency, as we’ve weathered industry and global macroeconomic headwinds while making considerable progress on our organizational goals,” said Snap One CEO John Heyman. “During the fiscal third quarter, we continued to execute against our long-term growth strategy in several key areas: we expanded our omni-channel distribution presence through the opening of three additional local branches, released a major upgrade to our Control4 OS 3 software, updated our OvrC remote management platform, launched several new product offerings, and on a year-over-year basis increased our domestic transacting integrator count and spend per integrator in the residential, security and commercial markets.”

“Our team’s commitment to operational efficiency, along with strategic inventory management, positioned us to serve integrator demand and exceed our expectations for the quarter. We delivered a record performance of $260.7 million in net sales, representing 15% year-over-year growth. While we expect these supply chain challenges to persist, the powerful secular demand trends for smart living solutions give us confidence in our ability to successfully execute through the remainder of the year and beyond.”

Fiscal Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Results compare 2021 fiscal third quarter end (September 24, 2021) to 2020 fiscal third quarter end (September 25, 2020) unless otherwise indicated.

  • Net sales increased 15% to $260.7 million from $226.3 million in the comparable year-ago period. The growth during the quarter was driven by strong overall demand across geographies, markets, and product categories, with year-over-year increases in transacting integrators and spend per integrator. Growth was also driven by the benefit of the first full quarter of ownership of Access Networks and the cumulative ramp of eight new local branches opened since the end of the third quarter 2020, including three new local branches opened in the most recent quarter, bringing total local branch count to 30. Additionally, the Company benefitted from a price increase enacted across its proprietary product portfolio in August 2021. While supply chain challenges represented a headwind in the quarter, the Company was able to avoid significant disruption through navigation of these issues.

  • Cost of sales, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, increased 14% to $151.3 million (58.0% of net sales) from $133.1 million (58.8% of net sales) in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in cost of sales, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, was primarily attributable to higher sales volumes.

  • Contribution margin, a non-GAAP measurement of operating performance reconciled below, increased 18% to $109.5 million (42.0% of net sales) in the fiscal third quarter from $93.1 million (41.2% of net sales) in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in contribution margin as a percentage of net sales was primarily due to favorable indexing towards higher-margin proprietary products, while the net benefit from the Company’s price increase across its proprietary product portfolio in August partially offset the increased supplier and inbound logistics costs in the period.

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 57% to $105.0 million (40.3% of net sales) from $67.0 million (29.6% of net sales) in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily due to the recognition of $14.4 million in equity-based compensation expenses and $10.6 million in compensation costs paid to certain pre-IPO owners for their interests in lieu of their participation in the tax receivable agreement entered into in connection with the IPO. The remaining increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was due to increases in variable operating expenses (including outbound shipping, credit card processing fees and warranty) driven by higher sales volumes, increased costs associated with becoming and operating as a public company, ongoing investments to support strategic growth initiatives, and a return to normalized spending levels when compared to cost reduction actions taken to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 in 2020.

  • Net loss increased $22.9 million to $21.5 million (-8.3% of net sales) compared to net income of $1.4 million (0.6% of net sales) in the comparable year-ago period. The change from net income to net loss was due to increases in SG&A expenses.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measurement of operating performance reconciled below, increased 2% to $32.1 million (12.3% of net sales) compared to $31.4 million (13.9% of net sales) in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to net sales and contribution margin growth offset by increases in SG&A expenses.

  • Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement of operating performance reconciled below, increased 13% to $16.7 million (6.4% of net sales) from $14.8 million (6.5% of net sales) in the comparable year-ago period. The increase in adjusted net income was primarily due to net sales and contribution margin growth offset by increases in SG&A expenses.

  • Net cash used in operating activities totaled $11.2 million in the nine months ended September 24, 2021, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $42.6 million in the comparable year-ago period. The change from cash provided by operating activities to cash used in operating activities was primarily attributable to a net increase in cash used for operating assets and liabilities, including an increase in inventory and prepaid vendor deposits to protect against supply chain uncertainty.

  • Free cash flow, a non-GAAP measurement of operating performance reconciled below, totaled ($18.1) million in the nine months ended September 24, 2021, compared to $35.5 million in the comparable year-ago period. The decrease in free cash flow was primarily attributable to an increase in net cash used in operating activities.

  • At the end of the fiscal third quarter, cash and cash equivalents were $60.6 million, compared to $77.5 million on December 25, 2020.

Fiscal 2021 Financial Outlook
Snap One remains confident in the continued demand for its products by integrator customers against the backdrop of ongoing global supply chain challenges and has considered this uncertainty when developing its estimates. The Company is updating its fiscal year ending December 31, 2021 net sales guidance to a range between $990 million and $1 billion, which would represent an increase of 21.6% to 22.8% compared to the prior fiscal year on an as reported basis.

The Company has raised its adjusted EBITDA expectations to range between $106 million and $110 million, which would represent an increase of 12.2% to 16.5% compared to the prior fiscal year on an as reported basis.

Snap One intends to use its website as a means of disclosing material, non-public information and for complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Such disclosures will be included in the Investor Relations section of the Snap One website at investors.snapone.com. Accordingly, investors should monitor such portion of the website, in addition to following the Company’s press releases, Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings and public conference calls and webcasts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including contribution margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and free cash flow. A non-GAAP financial measure is generally defined as a numerical measure of a company’s financial or operating performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We use the following non-GAAP measures to help us monitor the performance of our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business and assist us in making strategic decisions:

Contribution margin is defined as net sales less cost of sales, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, divided by net sales.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss, plus interest expense, net, income tax benefit, depreciation, and amortization, further adjusted to exclude equity-based compensation, acquisition- and integration-related costs and certain other non-recurring, non-core, infrequent or unusual charges as described below.

Adjusted net income is defined as net loss plus amortization further adjusted to exclude equity-based compensation, acquisition- and integration-related costs and certain non-recurring, non-core, infrequent or unusual charges, including the estimated tax impacts of these adjustments.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures (which consist of purchases of property and equipment as well as purchases of information technology, software development and leasehold improvements).

Contribution margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow are key measures used by management to understand and evaluate our financial performance, trends and generate future operating plans, make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital, and analyze investments in initiatives that are focused on cultivating new markets for our products and services. We believe contribution margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow are useful measurements for analysts, investors, and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our markets as they help identify underlying trends that could otherwise be masked by certain expenses that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing performance.

Contribution margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow have limitations as analytical tools. These measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, contribution margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled metrics of other companies due to differences among the methods of calculation.

We have not reconciled the forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance included above to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because this cannot be done without unreasonable effort due to the variability and low visibility with respect to certain costs, the most significant of which are incentive compensation (including stock-based compensation), transaction-related expenses, and certain fair value measurements, which are potential adjustments to future earnings. We expect the variability of these items to have a potentially unpredictable, and a potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

(a)

Represents non-recurring expense related to payments to certain pre-IPO owners in lieu of their participation in the TRA. Management does not believe such costs are indicative of our ongoing operations as they are one-time awards specific to the establishment of the TRA.

(b)

Represents expenses related to professional fees in connection with preparation for our IPO.

(c)

Represents noncash gains and losses recorded from fair value adjustments related to contingent value right liabilities. Contingent value right (“CVR”) liabilities represent potential obligations to the prior sellers in conjunction with the acquisition of the Company by investment funds managed by Hellman & Friedman in August 2017 and are based on estimates of expected cash payments to the prior sellers based on specified targets for the return on the original capital investment.

(d)

Represents expenses incurred related to deferred payments to employees associated with our Control4 acquisition and other historical acquisitions. The deferred payments are cash retention awards for key personnel from the acquired companies and are expected to be paid to employees through 2023. Management does not believe such costs are indicative of our ongoing operations as they are one-time awards specific to acquisitions and are incremental to our typical compensation costs incurred and we do not expect such costs to be reflective of future increases in base compensation expense.

(e)

Represents an adjustment related to the fair value of deferred revenue related to the Control4 acquisition.

(f)

Represents costs directly associated with acquisitions and acquisition-related integration activities. For the three months and nine months ended September 25, 2020, the costs relate primarily to third-party consultant and information technology integration costs directly related to the Company’s acquisition of Control4 in August 2019. These costs also include certain restructuring costs (e.g., severance) and other third-party transaction advisory fees associated with the acquisitions.

(g)

Represents non-recurring expenses related to consulting, restructuring, and other expenses which management believes are not representative of our operating performance.

(h)

Represents the tax impacts with respect to each adjustment noted above after taking into account the impact of permanent differences using the statutory tax rate related to the applicable federal and foreign jurisdictions and the blended state tax rate.
