WEST JORDAN, Utah, Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. ("Sportsman's Warehouse" or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SPWH) today announced financial results for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2021.

“The business continued to perform well during the second quarter,” said Jon Barker, Sportsman’s Warehouse CEO. “While second quarter same store sales decreased 9.9% compared to the same period last year, I believe this was a favorable result considering the many factors that drove our elevated second quarter 2020 sales. For the first half of fiscal year 2021, same store sales increased 3.4% compared to the same period last year.”

Mr. Barker continued, “We believe customers are responding favorably to our brand, product assortment, and customer service. I am grateful to the entire Sportsman’s Warehouse team who continue to provide outstanding gear and exceptional service to inspire outdoor memories.”

Pending Merger with Great Outdoors Group, LLC

As previously announced on December 21, 2020, Great Outdoors Group, LLC has agreed to acquire Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. for $18.00 per share in an all cash transaction. The transaction was approved by the board of directors of Sportsman’s Warehouse and subsequently approved by the stockholders of Sportsman’s Warehouse at the special stockholders meeting held on March 23, 2021. Completion of the merger is subject to the satisfaction of several conditions, including the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period (and any extensions thereof) relating to the merger under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act. Assuming receipt of required clearance pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and timely satisfaction of other conditions to closing, we currently expect the closing of the merger to occur in the second half of calendar year 2021.

Due to the pending acquisition by Great Outdoors Group, LLC, Sportsman’s Warehouse management will not be hosting an earnings conference call and will not be providing forward looking guidance.

For the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2021:

  • Net sales were $361.8 million, a decrease of $19.2 million, or 5.0%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. The net sales decrease was primarily due to lower demand across our hunting and shooting, fishing and camping categories compared to significantly elevated sales in the prior year period.

  • Same store sales decreased 9.9% during the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020.

  • Gross profit was $120.1 million, or 33.2% of net sales, compared to $129.1 million, or 33.9% of net sales in the comparable prior year period, a year-over-year decrease of $9.0 million in gross profit and a 70-basis point decrease in gross profit margin.

  • Net income was $17.7 million compared to net income of $32.5 million in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted net income was $19.5 million compared to adjusted net income of $33.6 million in the second quarter of 2020 (see “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures”).

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $35.2 million compared to $53.6 million in the comparable prior year period (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.40 compared to a diluted earnings per share of $0.73 in the comparable prior year period. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.44 compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.76 for the comparable prior year period (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

For the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2021:

  • Net sales were $688.8 million, an increase of $60.9 million, or 9.7%, compared to the first half of fiscal year 2020. The net sales increase was primarily due to increased demand across all categories, as well as strong growth in our ecommerce platform compared to the prior year period.

  • Same store sales increased 3.4% during the first half of 2021 compared to the first half of 2020.

  • Gross profit was $224.1 million, or 32.5% of net sales, compared to $203.9 million, or 32.5% of net sales in the comparable prior year period, a year-over-year decrease of $20.2 million in gross profit.

  • Net income was $28.2 million compared to net income of $31.3 million in the first half of 2020. Adjusted net income was $32.0 million compared to adjusted net income of $34.0 million in the first half of 2020 (see “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures”).

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $58.7 million compared to $61.8 million in the comparable prior year period (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.63 compared to a diluted earnings per share of $0.71 in the comparable prior year period. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.72 compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.77 for the comparable prior year period (see "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures").

Balance sheet highlights as of July 31, 2021:

  • Total net debt was $17.6 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, comprised of $2.6 million of cash on hand and $20.2 million of borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

  • Total liquidity was $188.6 million as of the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2021 with $186.0 million of availability on the revolving credit facility and $2.6 million of cash on hand.

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. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income, plus expenses incurred relating to bonuses and increased wages paid to front-line and non-executive back office associates due to COVID-19, expenses incurred relating to the acquisition of Field and Stream store locations and the pending merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, and the costs and impairments recorded relating to the closure of one store during the first quarter of 2020, less recognized tax benefits, as applicable. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, bonuses and increased wages paid to front-line and non-executive back office associates due to COVID-19, expenses incurred relating to the acquisition of Field and Stream store locations and the pending merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, pre-opening expenses, and the costs and impairments recorded relating to the closure of one store during the first quarter of 2020. 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 close on the planned merger with Great Outdoors Group, LLC. 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: the potential impact of, and any potential developments related to, the pending merger with Great Outdoors Group, including the risk that the conditions to the consummation of the merger are not satisfied or waived, litigation challenging the merger, the impact on our stock price, business, financial condition and results of operations if the merger is not consummated, and the potential negative impact to our business and employee relationships due to the merger; current and future government regulations, in particular regulations relating to the sale of firearms and ammunition, which may impact the supply and demand for the Company’s products and the Company’s ability to conduct its business; the impacts of COVID-19 and measures intended to reduce its spread on the Company’s operations; the Company’s retail-based business model, which is impacted by general economic, market and financial uncertainties that may cause a decline in consumer spending; the Company’s concentration of stores in the Western United States, which makes the Company susceptible to adverse conditions in this region and could affect the Company’s sales and cause its operating results to suffer; the highly fragmented and competitive industry in which the Company operates and the potential for increased competition; changes in consumer demands, including regional preferences, which the Company may not be able to identify and respond to in a timely manner; the Company’s entrance into new markets or operations in existing markets, which may not be successful; 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 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2021 which was filed with the SEC on April 2, 2021, 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.
