ATLANTA, March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:HDS), one of the largest industrial distributors in North America, today reported Net sales of $8.5 billion, for the full-year fiscal 2013 ended February 2, 2014, an increase of $732 million or 9.4 percent, as compared to fiscal 2012 when adjusting fiscal 2012 to eliminate the impact of the 53rd week and the Crown Bolt contract amendment. Organic sales growth was 8.1 percent in fiscal 2013 versus fiscal 2012 As Adjusted. The company believes its organic sales performance represents growth of approximately 600 basis points in excess of its estimate of annual market growth.

"I am very pleased with our 2013 performance," stated Joe DeAngelo, CEO of HD Supply. "We delivered 9 percent sales growth and 21 percent Adjusted EBITDA growth, as adjusted for unusual items, despite a challenging and uncertain market environment. Our focused growth strategies and investments coupled with our differentiated customer-centric business model continue to deliver profitable growth in excess of our estimate of market growth."

There are several unusual items that impact the comparability of the results of fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012.

Fiscal 2012 includes:

  • 53rd week of operations, which represents $147 million in Net sales, $41 million in Gross profit, $14 million in Operating income, and $14 million in Adjusted EBITDA
  • Crown Bolt and Home Depot amended agreement, which represents $41 million in Net sales, Gross profit, Operating income and Adjusted EBITDA
  • Crown Bolt goodwill and other intangible asset impairment, which represents $152 million Operating loss

Fiscal 2013 includes:

  • Restructuring charges, which represent $3 million in Cost of sales, $9 million in Operating expenses, for a total $12 million Operating loss

Full-Year Results

The following are results for the full-year of fiscal 2013 compared to the full-year of fiscal 2012, including adjusted results where it aids in comparability. A reconciliation of adjusted results to GAAP is provided in the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section of the release.

Net sales for fiscal 2013 of $8.5 billion, increased $732 million or 9.4 percent, as compared to fiscal 2012 As Adjusted. Organic sales growth was 8.1 percent in fiscal 2013 as compared to fiscal 2012 As Adjusted. The Net sales increase was primarily due to growth initiatives at each of our businesses and, to a lesser extent, increases in market volume and recent acquisitions, partially offset by unfavorable weather conditions, particularly the severe winter weather experienced during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 and the unusually cooler weather in the summer months, impacting HVAC-related sales.

Gross profit increased $258 million, or 11.6 percent, to $2,475 million for fiscal 2013 As Adjusted. Gross profit increased to 29.2 percent of Net sales in fiscal 2013 As Adjusted, up 60 basis points from 28.6 percent in fiscal 2012 As Adjusted.

Operating income increased $229 million, or 84.5 percent, during fiscal 2013 As Adjusted, as compared to fiscal 2012 As Adjusted. Operating income as a percentage of Net sales increased approximately 240 basis points during fiscal 2013 As Adjusted as compared to fiscal 2012 As Adjusted. The improvement was driven by the reduction in depreciation and amortization expense and improvements in gross margins.

Adjusted EBITDA of $764 million increased $134 million, or 21.3 percent, in fiscal 2013 as compared to fiscal 2012 As Adjusted. The improvement reflects the company's focus on margin expansion and operational excellence while at the same time investing for future growth.

Net loss for fiscal 2013 was $218 million, which included an $87 million loss on extinguishment and modification of debt and a $12 million restructuring charge. Net loss for fiscal 2012 was $1,179 million, which included a $709 million loss on extinguishment of debt and a $152 million impairment charge.

Adjusted net income for fiscal 2013 was $99 million, an improvement of $228 million as compared to an Adjusted net loss of $129 million in fiscal 2012. The increase in Adjusted net income is attributable to sales growth, improving gross margins, and a reduction in interest expense. Adjusted net income per diluted share in fiscal 2013 was $0.58 per share, as compared to an Adjusted net loss per diluted share of $0.99 in fiscal 2012.

As of February 2, 2014, HD Supply's combined liquidity of approximately $994 million was comprised of $115 million in cash and cash equivalents and $879 million of additional available borrowings under HD Supply, Inc.'s senior asset-backed lending facility, based on qualifying inventory and receivables.

"HD Supply's fiscal 2013 fourth-quarter represents the fifteenth consecutive quarter of year-over-year average daily sales growth despite the impact of severe winter weather and continued sluggishness in our end markets," added DeAngelo. "Our seasoned teams are focused on executing our controllable growth initiatives that deliver growth despite the uncontrollable environment. We took proactive actions to align our costs to market uncertainties as well as streamlined areas of the business to increase our focus on value enhancing activities."

Restructuring and Discontinued Operations

As a result of the structural cost analysis and footprint optimization undertaken in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, the company has taken a $12 million charge in the fourth-quarter of fiscal 2013 and expects to take an additional $3 million to $5 million charge in fiscal 2014. This charge reflects the costs related to the reduction of approximately 150 associates, the consolidation and relocation of operational locations, and liquidation of inventory. The $12 million charge consists of $3 million in inventory liquidation cost which is reflected in Cost of Sales, while the remaining $9 million charge is reflected within the Restructuring line of the Income Statement. All of which is added back to Adjusted EBITDA.

Additionally, the company has decided to dispose of its Litemor business, a specialty lighting distributor included within the HD Supply Canada business. Litemor's fiscal 2013 operating results reflect $82 million of Net sales and a loss of $4 million in Adjusted EBITDA. As a result of the intent to dispose of the business, Litemor is being reflected as a discontinued operation for all periods presented. The company expects to incur a charge within discontinued operations of between $10 million and $25 million during fiscal 2014 for the disposition of the Litemor business. The remaining HD Supply Canada business, Brafasco, an industrial MRO distributor specializing in fasteners, power tools and safety products throughout Canada, will be integrated with HD Supply White Cap.

Preliminary February Sales

Preliminary Net sales in February were $609 million, which represents 4 percent average daily sales growth versus prior year. Preliminary February year-over-year average daily sales growth by business is: Facilities Maintenance 10 percent, Waterworks 2 percent, Power Solutions (4) percent and White Cap 9 percent.

"The February results were impacted by adverse winter weather experienced through much of the country," added DeAngelo. "We are staying focused on controllable execution and building momentum for our spring selling season."

2014 Outlook Framework

The company has developed a flexible framework to provide a perspective of its current outlook for 2014 sales and earnings performance. The company intends to share the specific elements of this framework on its fiscal 2013 fourth-quarter and full-year conference call, which will include an outlook for each end market, as well as the growth rate targets in excess of estimated end market growth by business unit. In addition, the company will provide an operating leverage framework for each business unit.

Litemor Discontinued Operations Impact on Guidance

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, the company decided to dispose of Litemor and, therefore, reflected the results of Litemor as a discontinued operation. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the presentation of discontinued operations includes revenues and expenses of the discontinued operations, net of tax, as one line item on the Income Statement. All Income Statements presented have been revised to reflect this presentation. 

The guidance we previously provided for our 2013 performance included the results of our Litemor business. The following table presents our fiscal 2013 results adjusted to include the results of Litemor (amounts in millions, except per share data).

Adjusted Net income per diluted share $ 0.58 $ (0.02) $ 0.56 $0.52 -- $0.58

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss)

We present Adjusted EBITDA because it is a primary measure used by management to evaluate operating performance. We believe the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA enhances investors' overall understanding of the financial performance of our business. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to Net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance. In addition, we present Adjusted net income (loss) to measure our overall profitability as we believe it is an important measure of our performance.  Adjusted net income (loss) is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to Net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as Net income (loss) less Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, further adjusted for certain non-cash, non-recurring or unusual items, net of tax. We compensate for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results alone. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is based on "Consolidated EBITDA," a measure which is defined in our senior credit facilities and used in calculating financial ratios in several material debt covenants. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Net income (loss) less Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, plus (i) Interest expense and Interest income, net, (ii) Provision (benefit) for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization and further adjusted to exclude non-cash items and certain other adjustments to Consolidated Net Income permitted in calculating Consolidated EBITDA under our senior credit facilities.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analyzing our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our income tax expenses or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; and
  • Although depreciation and amortization charges are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.
