Comparable Sales decreased (26.7%)

BOLINGBROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ulta Beauty, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULTA) today announced financial results for the thirteen-week period (“Second Quarter”) and twenty-six-week period (“First Six Months”) ended August 1, 2020 compared to the same periods ended August 3, 2019. During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company recorded store impairment and closure related costs that reduced reported net income by $33.5 million or $0.59 per diluted share. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the respective GAAP measures is included in this release.

“We have navigated the disruption and uncertainty of COVID-19 with our associates and guests at the heart of every decision. After closing our stores in the first quarter, we reopened our fleet in the second quarter with Shop Safe Standards and new operating procedures in place to protect the health and safety of all. I remain thankful and proud of our teams for their response and leadership throughout this challenging time and for their grace, agility and commitment to serving our guests,” said Mary Dillon, chief executive officer. “While the pandemic continues to impact our business, we are encouraged by improving trends. Comparable sales trends improved significantly throughout the quarter, from decreasing 37% in early May, as we began reopening stores, to decreasing 10% in July, when most of our stores were re-opened. Notably, sales trends have continued to improve, with comparable sales down in the mid-single digit range for the first three weeks of August.”

“We believe the near-term operating environment will continue to be dynamic and challenging, but I remain optimistic and excited about the long-term opportunity for Ulta Beauty. We know beauty enthusiasts remain passionate and engaged with the category, and we have great talent, a strong culture, a differentiated operating model, and the right strategy to drive growth,” continued Dillon. “As we transition into the new normal, I am confident the Ulta Beauty team will continue to innovate, move with agility and efficiency, and grow as the largest and most admired beauty retailer in the U.S.”

COVID-19 Response and Impact

On March 19, 2020, Ulta Beauty temporarily closed all of its stores in response to the spread of COVID-19. On April 19, 2020, the Company introduced curbside pickup in select stores, and on May 11, 2020, the Company started a phased store reopening process. By the end of June, more than 90% of stores were open for retail, and by July 20, 2020, the full fleet of Ulta Beauty stores were operational. As of August 1, 2020, salon services were available in approximately 88% of stores, and brow services were offered in approximately 85% of stores. Reflecting operational limitations related to COVID-19 and the partial resumption of services, the Company has reactivated approximately 17,000 furloughed associates.

The Company continues to take actions to manage the business in response to COVID-19, including:

  • Reopening stores with limited capacity to accommodate social distancing, and reduced operating hours;
  • Implementing Shop Safe Standards in all of its stores, including required facial coverings for all guests and associates in stores;
  • Beginning a thoughtful, phased approach to the reopening of its corporate offices, with a commitment to protecting health and safety and to providing associates needed flexibility, all while maintaining a culture of high performance;
  • Resuming new store openings in August 2020 after a temporary pause;
  • Accelerating the opening of its Jacksonville fast fulfillment facility, increasing order processing capacity in existing distribution centers, and expanding ship-from-store capabilities to an additional 100 stores, all to increase shipping capacity in support of continued strong e-commerce sales;
  • Incurring incremental costs related to COVID-19 of approximately $135 million during the first six months of fiscal 2020;
  • Recorded $48.2 million reduction of selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) in the second quarter as a result of the employee retention credits made available under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act); and
  • Reducing spending across store payroll, variable store expense, marketing, and corporate overhead expenses.

For the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2020

  • Net sales decreased 26.3% to $1.2 billion compared to $1.7 billion in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 due to the impact of COVID-19.
  • Comparable sales (sales for stores open at least 14 months, including stores temporarily closed due to COVID-19, and e-commerce sales) decreased 26.7% compared to an increase of 6.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. In the second quarter, transactions declined 36.2% and average ticket increased 14.9%.
  • Gross profit decreased to $329.0 million compared to $605.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit decreased to 26.8% compared to 36.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily due to deleverage of fixed costs due to lower sales, channel mix shifts, deleverage of salon expenses due to lower sales, and an increase in inventory reserves. These pressures were partially offset by lower promotional activity.
  • SG&A expenses decreased to $271.6 million compared to $392.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses decreased to 22.1% compared to 23.6% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 primarily due to leverage related to lower store payroll and benefits, including the employee retention credits made available under the CARES Act, and lower marketing expense, partially offset by increased expenses related to strategic growth investments made in 2019 and deleverage of store expenses due to lower sales resulting from the impact of COVID-19.
  • Impairment, store closure and other costs of $40.8 million includes $20.9 million due to the impairment of tangible long-lived assets and operating lease assets associated with certain retail stores and $19.9 million related to the permanent closure of 19 stores.
  • Pre-opening expenses decreased to $3.9 million compared to $5.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. New store activity was temporarily paused due to COVID-19. As a result, real estate activity in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 included no new stores, compared to 20 new stores, eight remodels, and four relocations in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • Operating income decreased to $12.8 million, or 1.1% of net sales, compared to $208.0 million, or 12.5% of net sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Adjusted operating income was $54.9 million, or 4.5% of net sales.
  • Tax rate decreased to 20.6% compared to 23.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The lower effective tax rate is primarily due to a decrease in operating income.
  • Net income was $8.1 million compared to $161.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Adjusted net income was $41.5 million compared to adjusted net income of $159.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

  • Comparable sales decreased 31.1% compared to an increase of 6.6% in the first six months of fiscal 2019. During the first six months of fiscal 2020, transactions declined 37.4% and average ticket increased 10.1%.
  • Gross profit decreased to $632.6 million compared to $1.3 billion in the first six months of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit decreased to 26.3% compared to 36.7% in the first six months of fiscal 2019, primarily due to deleverage of fixed costs due to lower sales, channel mix shifts, deleverage of salon expenses due to lower sales, and an increase in inventory reserves. These pressures were partially offset by lower promotional activity.
  • SG&A expenses decreased to $652.5 million compared to $796.0 million in the first six months of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A increased to 27.2% compared to 23.3% in the first six months of fiscal 2019, primarily due to deleverage in store expenses due to lower sales resulting from the impact of COVID-19 and increased expenses related to strategic growth investments made in 2019, partially offset by leverage related to the store payroll and benefits, including the employee retention credits made available under the CARES Act.
  • Impairment, store closure and other costs of $60.3 million includes $40.4 million due to the impairment of tangible long-lived assets and operating lease assets associated with certain retail stores and $19.9 million related the permanent closure of 19 stores.

  • Tax rate increased to 23.9% compared to 21.3% in fiscal 2019. The higher effective tax rate is primarily due to a reduction of tax-deductible stock option expense in the first six months of fiscal 2020.
  • Net loss was $70.5 million compared to net income of $353.5 million in the first six months of fiscal 2019. Adjusted net loss was $23.5 million compared to adjusted net income of $340.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2019.
  • Diluted loss per share was $1.25, compared to diluted earnings per share of $6.02 in the first six months of fiscal 2019. Adjusted diluted loss per share was $0.42, compared to adjusted dilutive earnings per share of $5.81 in the first six months of fiscal 2019.

Balance Sheet

The Company ended the second quarter of fiscal 2020 with $1.2 billion in cash and cash equivalents. During the first quarter of fiscal 2020, as a precautionary measure during the economic uncertainty due to COVID-19 and to enhance financial flexibility, the Company drew down $800 million under its $1.0 billion credit facility.

Merchandise inventories, net at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2020 totaled $1.4 billion compared to $1.3 billion at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase in total inventory was primarily driven by 51 net new stores opened since August 3, 2019. Average inventory per store decreased slightly compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

Store Expansion

New store activity was temporarily paused during the quarter due to COVID-19. The Company ended the second quarter of fiscal 2020 with 1,264 stores and square footage of 13,294,607, representing a 4.2% increase in square footage compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019. In addition, during the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company announced that it would permanently close 19 stores. These previously announced store closures will occur during the third quarter of fiscal 2020.

Fiscal 2020 Outlook

“We are encouraged by the recent improvement in sales trends, but we believe it will take time to fully return to pre-COVID levels. Given continued disruption from the pandemic, new operational protocols, and near-term employment and economic uncertainty, we expect sales will continue to be challenged for the rest of the year,” continued Dillon. “Longer-term, we are confident that Beauty will recover and thrive, given continued strong engagement and emotional connection with the category.”

The Company withdrew its guidance for fiscal 2020 on March 17, 2020 and is not providing an earnings outlook at this time. However, the Company is providing the following updated assumptions for fiscal 2020:

  • The Company expects to incur between $35 million and $40 million in PPE and COVID-19 related costs in the second half of fiscal 2020;
  • The Company expects to open approximately 30 new stores and execute approximately five relocation projects. Although plans for fiscal 2021 have not been finalized, the Company expects to open at least 30 new stores in fiscal 2021. The Company will continue to evaluate these plans based on demand and location economics, including committed costs incurred; and
  • The Company anticipates capital expenditures will be between $180 million and $200 million, compared to the previous expectation of between $200 million and $210 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, the Company provides information regarding adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, which are not recognized terms under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and do not purport to be alternatives to operating income (loss), net income (loss), and diluted earnings (loss) per share as a measure of operating performance. A reconciliation of adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share is provided in this release. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional information on comparisons between periods by excluding certain items that affect overall comparability and provides investors with enhanced visibility into its results with respect to the impact of certain costs. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
