PALATINE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 15, 2021--

Weber Inc. (“Weber” or “the Company”) (NYSE: WEBR) today announced its financial results for the fiscal third quarter.

Weber reports its financial performance in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and as adjusted on a non-GAAP basis. Please see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” and “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information” below for additional information and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, Weber set a fifth straight year-over-year quarterly sales record as net sales increased 19%, to $669 million, from $561 million in the prior year quarter. Net Income was $18 million or 2.7% of net sales and Adjusted EBITDA was $134 million or 20.1% of net sales despite distribution, inbound freight, and commodity cost inflation headwinds.

“During the third quarter, we continued to experience record levels of demand for Weber® grills and accessories across every product fuel type in our portfolio and every region globally,” said Chris Scherzinger, Chief Executive Officer of Weber. “We see ongoing resilience in the outdoor cooking category and continued market share growth for Weber. Our growth priorities around new product innovation, direct-to-consumer, and channel and geography expansion have generated strong growth throughout 2021, with fiscal year-to-date sales up 41%, outpacing the category. This strong performance shows the power of the Weber brand and our unique global reach, as consumers continue to enjoy barbecuing at home all around the world.

“Importantly, we converted our strong revenue growth into Adjusted EBITDA growth, in the face of industry-wide cost and logistics headwinds, thanks to our best-in-class supply chain management and our unique multi-continent manufacturing footprint, particularly with our US manufacturing operations here in Chicago,” added Mr. Scherzinger. “These unique strengths combined with the dedication and passion of our global team generated reliable earnings growth for our shareholders this quarter, while also allowing us to fund future growth initiatives in new product development, new technology and digital marketing platforms, and continued strategic geographic expansion.”

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2021

  • Net sales increased 19%, to $669 million, from $561 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Net sales increased 8% in the Americas, to $339 million, from $315 million in the prior year quarter; EMEA increased 35%, to $307 million, from $228 million in the prior year quarter; and APAC increased 25%, to $23 million from $18 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Net income decreased 78%, to $18 million, or 2.7% of net sales, compared to $79 million, or 14.2% of net sales in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income decreased 6%, to $85 million, or 12.7% of net sales, compared to $91 million, or 16.2% of net sales in the prior year quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 10%, to $134 million, or 20.1% of net sales, compared to $122 million, or 21.7% of net sales in the prior year quarter.
  • Continued strategic investments to accelerate growth via increased new product innovation, expanded digital marketing reach, accelerated geographic expansion, and amplified direct-to-consumer initiatives.
  • As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $146 million and $294 million of available borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Total debt at the end of the quarter was $1,244 million.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $289 million for the quarter compared to $333 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2020, with the decrease driven primarily by normalized inventory levels in 2021 versus low levels in 2020 during the pandemic.

FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2021

  • Fiscal year to date net sales increased 41%, to $1,632 million, from $1,157 million versus the same period last year.
  • Net sales increased 37% in the Americas, to $892 million, from $650 million in the prior year nine months period; EMEA increased 42%, to $618 million, from $435 million last year; and APAC increased 69%, to $123 million from $73 million last year.
  • Net income decreased 11%, to $92 million, or 5.6% of net sales, compared to $103 million, or 8.9% of net sales in the prior year nine months. Adjusted net income increased 62%, to $196 million, or 12.0% of net sales, compared to $121 million, or 10.5% of net sales in the prior year nine months.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 62%, to $321 million, or 19.7% of net sales, compared to $199 million, or 17.2% of net sales in the prior year nine months.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $74 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to $121 million in the prior year, with the variance driven primarily by normalized inventory levels in 2021.

FULL FISCAL YEAR 2021 GUIDANCE

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021,

  • Net sales are expected to be between $1,960 million and $1,970 million, up 28%-29% versus the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be $305 million to $310 million, up 35%-37% versus the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020.

Weber provides net sales guidance on a GAAP basis and Adjusted EBITDA on a non-GAAP basis and does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to GAAP net income (loss), due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. Because other deductions (such as restructuring, gain or loss on extinguishment of debt and litigation and other matters) used to calculate projected net income (loss) can vary dramatically based on actual events, the Company is not able to forecast on a GAAP basis with reasonable certainty that all deductions and additions needed in order to provide a GAAP calculation of projected net income (loss) at this time. The amount of these deductions may be material and, therefore, could result in projected net income (loss) being materially more or less than projected Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP). These statements represent forward-looking information and may represent a financial outlook, and actual results may vary.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release contains Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income, which are financial measures not presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before interest expense, net income taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for non-cash stock compensation / LTIP and profits interest expense, business transformation costs, operational transformation costs, impairment costs, debt refinancing and IPO costs, COVID-19 operational costs, loss from early extinguishment of debt, and gain on disposal of assets held for sale. Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income adjusted for non-cash stock compensation / LTIP and profits interest expense, business transformation costs, operational transformation costs, impairment costs, debt refinancing and IPO costs, COVID-19 costs, loss from early extinguishment of debt, and gain on disposal of assets held for sale, net of the tax impact of such adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are used by management in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources, and internal planning and forecasting and for business strategy purposes.

In addition, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are widely used by investors as indicators of a company’s performance. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing our financial results. The use of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, the comparable GAAP measures. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are not determined in accordance with GAAP, they are susceptible to differing calculations, and not all comparable or peer companies may calculate their non-GAAP measures in the same manner. Please refer to the reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP below.

Adjusted income from operations includes foreign currency gain (loss) in order to align adjusted income from operations with Adjusted EBITDA, with the exception of depreciation and amortization and loss (gain) from investments in unconsolidated affiliates.

(2)

Our financial results reflect an increase in other long-term liabilities related to an increase in the value of our LTIP and profits interest units as well as a change in accounting methodology from the intrinsic value method to the fair value method during the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2021. These changes resulted in selling, general and administrative expense of approximately $62 million and $94 million for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2021, respectively.

(3)

“Business transformation costs” are defined as costs incurred to implement the leadership team’s plans to transition the organization to the future operating structure. These costs include major business transformation initiatives that require severance or other costs to transition to a new operating model.

(4)

“Operational transformation costs” are defined as restructuring and transformation initiatives related to major supply chain, operational moves and startups that are designed to enable future productivity. These costs also include significant systems integration costs, as well was plant shutdown and closure costs that will drive future efficiencies.

(5)

“Debt refinancing and IPO costs” are defined as certain non-capitalizable costs from the refinancing of the Company’s term loan and costs related to the initial public offering.

(6)

During the nine months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company incurred a number of significant costs related to the global COVID-19 pandemic. These non-recurring costs included plant shutdown costs, the impact of enhanced employee safety and social distancing protocols as well as overtime and expedited freight costs to fulfill significant unexpected demand increases driven by stay-at-home orders in many of our key markets. These costs have normalized in Fiscal Year 2021.
