Amends credit agreement to provide for $350 million of maximum borrowing capacity

WEST JORDAN, Utah, May 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. ("Sportsman's Warehouse" or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SPWH) today announced financial results for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2022.

“Our first quarter results were highlighted by strong performances in our hunting and shooting sports, apparel, and footwear categories,” said Jon Barker, Sportsman’s Warehouse Chief Executive Officer. “The in-stock levels for ammunition continue to improve, driving traffic both on-line and in our stores. We added three new stores to our fleet during the quarter, and just last week celebrated the grand opening of our new spike camp store in Riverton, Wyoming. This now brings the total number of stores in our fleet to 126 across the U.S.”

Mr. Barker continued, “We continue to closely monitor the impact of the current macro-economic environment on consumer behavior. Our broad assortment across multiple categories of product provides us with the ability to serve the changing needs of the consumer. With our position as the value-price leader in our industry, and with our growing omni-channel presence, we remain confident in our ability to serve the customer who is seeking the brands and equipment needed to enjoy the outdoors.”

For the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2022:

  • Net sales were $309.5 million, a decrease of 5.3%, compared to $327.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. The net sales decrease was primarily due to lower sales demand across all product categories as we anniversaried the increased demand during the first fiscal quarter of 2021 driven by the COVID-19 economic stimulus package (the American Rescue Plan) and social unrest. This increase was partially offset by the addition of 13 new stores since May 1, 2021, which contributed $20.0 million in revenue to the current quarter.

  • Same store sales decreased 11.6% during the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. This was primarily driven by a decrease in demand across all product categories due to the tough year-over-year comparison as described above.

  • Gross profit was $99.1 million or 32.0% of net sales, compared to $104.0 million or 31.8% of net sales in the comparable prior year period. The 20-basis point improvement as a percentage of net sales can be attributed to favorable product sales mix and higher product margins, partially offset by higher overall transportation costs.

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased to $96.1 million, an increase of 6.3%, compared to $90.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. This increase was the result of a return to pre-pandemic levels of marketing and travel activities, the timing of new store openings, and higher depreciation, payroll and rent expense.

  • Net income was $2.0 million, compared to net income of $10.5 million in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted net income was $2.2 million compared to adjusted net income of $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2021 (see “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures”).

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $12.9 million, compared to $23.5 million in the comparable prior year period (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.05 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.23 in the comparable prior year period. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.05 compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.28 for the comparable prior year period (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

Balance sheet highlights as of April 30, 2022:

  • The Company ended the first quarter with net debt of $40.8 million, comprised of $98.5 million of borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility and $57.7 million of cash on hand.

  • Total liquidity was $168.2 million as of the end of the first quarter, comprised of $110.5 million of availability on the revolving credit facility, which does not give effect to the amended credit agreement entered into after the end of the first quarter, and $57.7 million of cash on hand.

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement:

On May 27, 2022, the Company and subsidiaries of the Company, each as borrowers or guarantors, amended and restated the Credit Agreement governing the revolving credit facility with a consortium of banks led by Wells Fargo (the “Amended Credit Agreement”). The Amended Credit Agreement, among other things, increased the maximum borrowing capacity under the revolving credit facility from $250.0 million to $350.0 million, subject to a borrowing base calculation, extended the maturity date from May 23, 2023 to May 27, 2027 and replaced LIBOR with Term SOFR as the benchmark interest rate and made certain conforming changes related thereto.

“The increased capacity of our revolving credit facility is reflective of the growth and health of our business and gives us additional flexibility to execute on our growth initiatives,” said Jeff White, Chief Financial Officer of Sportsman’s Warehouse. “We appreciate the continued support from our lending partners as we further expand our business and grow our store footprint.”

Further information can be found in disclosure documents filed with the SEC and available at www.sportsmans.com.

Second Quarter 2022 Outlook:

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, net sales are expected to be in the range of $330 million to $350 million, anticipating that same store sales will be down 16% to 10% year-over-year. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter are expected to be in the range of $0.22 to $0.30.

Conference Call Information:

A conference call to discuss first quarter 2022 financial results is scheduled for May 31, 2022, at 5:00PM Eastern Time. The conference call will be webcast and may be accessed via the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at www.sportsmans.com.

Non-GAAP Information:

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”): adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA. We define adjusted net income as net income plus expenses incurred relating to costs incurred for the recruitment and hiring of key members of management, expenses incurred relating to the terminated merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC and recognized tax benefits, as applicable. We define adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, expenses incurred relating to the terminated merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, pre-opening expenses and costs incurred for the recruitment and hiring of key members of management.  The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures under “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures” in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company’s business and facilitate a more meaningful comparison of its diluted earnings per share and actual results on a period-over-period basis. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate these items differently than the Company does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements in this release include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our ability to have sufficient inventory of products in demand by our customers and our guidance for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022. Investors can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as "continue", "expect", "may", “opportunity”, "plan", "future", “ahead” and similar terms and phrases. The Company cannot assure investors that future developments affecting the Company will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to many factors including, but not limited to:  current and future government regulations relating to the sale of firearms and ammunition, which may impact the supply and demand for the Company’s products and ability to conduct its business; the Company’s retail-based business model; general economic, market and other conditions and changes in consumer spending; the Company’s concentration of stores in the Western United States; competition in the outdoor activities and specialty retail market; changes in consumer demands; the Company’s expansion into new markets and planned growth; the impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s operations; and other factors that are set forth in the Company's filings with the SEC, including under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2022 which was filed with the SEC on March 30, 2022, and the Company’s other public filings made with the SEC and available at www.sec.gov. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Company’s assumptions prove incorrect, the Company’s actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this release speaks only as of the date on which the Company makes it. Factors or events that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by any applicable securities laws.
