Ulta Beauty Announces Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

03/11/21

Net Sales of $2.2 billion compared to $2.3 billion in the year-ago quarter

Comparable Sales decreased (4.8)%

Net income of $171.5 million or $3.03 per diluted share

Adjusted net income of $193.4 million or $3.41 adjusted per diluted share

BOLINGBROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ulta Beauty, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULTA) today announced financial results for the thirteen-week period (“Fourth Quarter”) and fifty-two-week period (“Fiscal Year”) ended January 30, 2021 compared to the same periods ended February 1, 2020. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company recorded long-lived asset impairment and restructuring related costs, primarily related to the suspension of the Company’s Canadian expansion and employee severance costs, which reduced reported operating income by $30.4 million and net income by $23.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the respective GAAP measures is included in this release.

“The Ulta Beauty team delivered better-than-expected results for the fourth quarter. Strong, enterprise-wide execution of our plans, combined with improving trends in consumer demand, resulted in solid results across multiple metrics, including sales, transactions and profitability,” said Mary Dillon, chief executive officer. “I want to express my sincere appreciation to all Ulta Beauty associates for their continued flexibility, collaboration and unwavering commitment to our guests and each other.”

“Fiscal 2020 was a difficult year, and I am proud of how our teams navigated the unprecedented challenges with agility and purpose,” continued Dillon. “We begin fiscal 2021 with a strong foundation in place and good operational momentum. We are strategically investing in our business to drive further market share gains, and, as separately announced today, we are beginning to execute a thoughtful succession plan that ensures we continue to benefit from strong, experienced leadership for the next chapter of growth. I remain excited about the long-term opportunity for Ulta Beauty, and I am confident we will continue to shape and lead the beauty industry for many years to come.”

COVID-19 Response and Impact

The Company’s financial results continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 19, 2020, Ulta Beauty temporarily closed all stores in response to the spread of COVID-19. On April 19, 2020, the Company introduced curbside pickup, and on May 11, 2020, the Company started a phased store reopening process. By July 20, 2020, the full fleet of Ulta Beauty stores was operational and by January 30, 2021, salon and brow services had resumed in all stores. During fiscal 2020, the Company incurred incremental operating costs related to COVID-19 of approximately $188 million and recorded a $52.4 million reduction of selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses as a result of the employee retention credits made available under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

For the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2020

  • Net sales decreased 4.6% to $2.2 billion compared to $2.3 billion in the fourth 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 4.8% compared to an increase of 4.0% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, transactions declined 12.2%, and average ticket increased 8.3%.
  • Gross profit decreased 4.4% to $771.0 million compared to $806.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased to 35.1% compared to 35.0% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily due to improvement in merchandise margins driven by lower promotional activity and enhanced merchandising strategies, partially offset by channel mix shifts and deleverage in fixed costs due to lower sales.
  • SG&A expenses decreased to $514.1 million compared to $515.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses increased to 23.4% compared to 22.4% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily due higher marketing expenses, higher corporate overhead expenses, personal protective equipment (PPE) and COVID-related expenses, and the deleverage of variable store expenses due to lower sales, partially offset by leverage related to the store payroll and benefits.
  • Impairment, restructuring and other costs of $30.4 million includes $13.2 million related to the suspension of the planned expansion to Canada, $10.0 million due to employee severance costs, $5.6 million lease termination costs related to the permanent closure of 19 stores, and $1.5 million due to the impairment of tangible long-lived assets and operating lease assets associated with certain retail stores.
  • Pre-opening expenses decreased to $2.2 million compared to $3.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 due to current quarter real estate activity and stores expected to open in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Real estate activity in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 included two new stores and two relocations compared to 13 new stores and two relocations in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • Operating income decreased to $224.3 million, or 10.2% of net sales, compared to $287.8 million, or 12.5% of net sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Adjusted operating income was $254.7 million, or 11.6% of net sales.
  • Tax rate increased to 23.4% compared to 22.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. The higher effective tax rate is primarily due to less investment tax credits received.
  • Net income was $171.5 million compared to $222.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Adjusted net income was $193.4 million compared to $219.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • Diluted earnings per share was $3.03 compared to $3.89 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $3.41 compared to $3.83 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.

For the Full Year of Fiscal 2020

  • Net sales decreased 16.8% to $6.2 billion compared to $7.4 billion in fiscal 2019 due to the impact of COVID-19.
  • Comparable sales decreased 17.9% compared to an increase of 5.0% in fiscal 2019. During fiscal 2020, transactions declined 24.5%, and average ticket increased 8.8%.
  • Gross profit decreased to $1.9 billion compared to $2.7 billion in fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit decreased to 31.7% compared to 36.2% in the fiscal 2019, primarily due to channel mix shifts and the deleverage of fixed costs and salon services due to the impact of lower sales. These pressures were partially offset by lower promotional activity.
  • SG&A expenses decreased to $1.6 billion compared to $1.8 billion in fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses increased to 25.7% compared to 23.8% in fiscal 2019, primarily due to higher corporate overhead expenses, PPE and COVID-related expenses, and the deleverage of store payroll and benefits, marketing and variable store expenses due to the impact of lower sales. These increases were partially offset by leverage related to the employee retention credits made available under the CARES Act.
  • Impairment, restructuring and other costs of $114.3 million includes $41.9 million due to the impairment of tangible long-lived assets and operating lease assets associated with certain retail stores, $29.1 million related to the suspension of the planned expansion to Canada, $27.5 million related to the permanent closure of 19 stores, and $15.8 million due to employee severance costs.
  • Pre-opening expenses decreased to $15.0 million compared to $19.3 million in fiscal 2019 due to current year real estate activity and stores expected to open in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Real estate activity in fiscal 2020 included 30 new stores and five relocations compared to 86 new stores, 12 remodels, and eight relocations in fiscal 2019.
  • Operating income decreased to $236.8 million, or 3.9% of net sales, compared to $901.1 million, or 12.1% of net sales, in fiscal 2019. Adjusted operating income was $352.5 million, or 5.7% of net sales.
  • Tax rate increased to 23.9% compared to 22.1% in fiscal 2019. The higher effective tax rate is primarily due to less investment tax credits received and tax expense from the income tax accounting for share-based compensation compared to a benefit in fiscal 2019.
  • Net income was $175.8 million compared to $705.9 million in fiscal 2019. Adjusted net income was $264.0 million compared to $688.3 million in fiscal 2019.
  • Diluted earnings per share was $3.11 compared to $12.15 in fiscal 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $4.66 compared to $11.85 in fiscal 2019.

Balance Sheet

The Company ended fiscal 2020 with $1.0 billion in cash and cash equivalents.

Merchandise inventories, net at the end of fiscal 2020 totaled $1.2 billion compared to $1.3 billion at the end of fiscal 2019. The decrease in total inventory was primarily driven by reduced store inventory due to a decline in traffic trends. Average inventory per store decreased 10.4% compared to fiscal 2019.

Share Repurchase Program

During the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased 147,824 shares of its common stock at a cost of $41.9 million. During fiscal 2020, the Company repurchased 474,794 shares of its common stock at a cost of $114.9 million. As of January 30, 2021, $1.5 billion remained available under the $1.6 billion share repurchase program announced in March 2020.

Store Update

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company opened two stores located in East Rutherford, NJ and Eden Prairie, MN. The Company ended fiscal 2020 with 1,264 stores and square footage of 13,291,838.

Fiscal 2021 Outlook

“We are encouraged by the momentum we are seeing in store traffic trends,” continued Dillon. “Although our visibility as to when demand will fully recover is limited, we are confident our business will continue to strengthen in fiscal 2021, as COVID-19 vaccines become more accessible.”

For fiscal 2021, the Company plans to:

  • open approximately 40 net new stores and execute approximately 21 remodel or relocation projects;
  • achieve net revenues of between $7.2 billion and $7.3 billion;
  • achieve comparable sales growth of approximately 15% to 17%;
  • expand operating margin to approximately 9% of sales, driven by gross margin expansion;
  • deliver diluted earnings per share in the range of $8.85 to $9.30, including the impact of approximately $850 million in share repurchases and assuming an effective tax rate of 24.8%;
  • incur capital expenditures between $200 million and $250 million; and
  • incur depreciation and amortization expense between $270 million and $280 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, the Company provides information regarding adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings 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, net income, and diluted earnings per share as measures of operating performance. A reconciliation of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings per share is provided in this release. The Company believes 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.
