  • Adjusted net income increased 74% to $32 million;
  • Adjusted EPS increased 77% to $0.64, based on a weighted-average share count of 49.4 million shares.

Full Year Results Ended December 31, 2017

Net sales increased 18%, or $40.3 million from fiscal 2016, to $269.9 million, driven by sales growth across leading retailers and our direct to consumer channels. Gross margin expanded to 61% from 58% in fiscal 2016, primarily as a result of margin accretive innovation, coupled with improvements in customer terms, freight costs and foreign exchange rate movements, partially offset by customer mix and an increase in the Company's inventory reserve.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) were $131.4 million, or 49% of net sales, compared to $109.2 million, or 48% of net sales for fiscal 2016. SG&A includes $15.8 million of costs and expenses that are non-cash or that management does not believe are reflective of the Company’s ongoing operations. Adjusted SG&A, excluding these costs and expenses, was $115.6 million, or 43% of net sales, compared to $94.3 million, or 41% of net sales, in fiscal 2016.

The Company generated a tax benefit of $11.0 million, primarily driven by a non-cash tax benefit of $11.6 million related to the revaluation of deferred tax liabilities as a result of U.S. tax reform and a $7.2 million benefit generated by stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock. This compares to a provision for income taxes of $4.5 million, including a $1.7 million benefit generated by stock option exercises, in fiscal 2016.

On a GAAP basis, net income was $33.5 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, based on a weighted-average share count of 49.4 million shares. This compares to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $497.5 million, or $39.47 per diluted share, based on a weighted-average share count of 12.6 million shares in fiscal 2016. The net loss attributable to common stockholders for fiscal 2016 included a non-cash preferred stock accretion charge of $436.3 million, which does not impact net income. Also deducted from the net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2016 was a $66.5 million dividend paid to preferred stockholders.

Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA excluding the items identified in the reconciliation table below) increased 15% to $61.6 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $53.8 million in fiscal 2016.

Adjusted net income (net income excluding the items identified in the reconciliation table below) increased 74% to $31.7 million, compared to adjusted net income of $18.2 million in fiscal 2016. On a per share basis, adjusted net income increased 77% to $0.64 per diluted share, based on a weighted-average share count of 49.4 million shares, compared to $0.36 per diluted share, based on a pro forma share count of 50.2 million shares in fiscal 2016. Adjusted net income in fiscal 2017 includes an excess tax benefit from stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock of approximately $0.15 per share, as compared to approximately $0.03 per share in fiscal 2016.

Three Months Results Ended December 31, 2017

Net sales increased 7%, or $5.2 million from the fourth quarter of 2016, to $81.6 million. Gross margin was slightly lower than the fourth quarter of 2016, with benefits from margin accretive innovation, improvements in customer terms, freight and foreign exchange offset by an increase in the Company's inventory reserve.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) were $32.6 million, or 40% of net sales, compared to $30.3 million, or 40% of net sales in the fourth quarter of 2016. SG&A includes $4.3 million of costs and expenses that are non-cash or that management does not believe are reflective of the Company’s ongoing operations. Adjusted SG&A, excluding these costs and expenses, was $28.3 million, or 35% of net sales, compared to $28.3 million, or 37% of net sales, in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The Company generated a tax benefit of $9.0 million, primarily driven by a non-cash tax benefit of $11.6 million related to the revaluation of deferred tax liabilities as a result of U.S. tax reform and a $2.2 million benefit generated by stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock. This compares to a provision for income taxes of $4.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

On a GAAP basis, net income was $21.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, based on a weighted-average share count of 49.2 million shares. This compares to net income of $6.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, based on a weighted-average share count of 49.5 million shares in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA excluding the items identified in the reconciliation table below) increased 2% to $22.7 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $22.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Adjusted net income (net income excluding the items identified in the reconciliation table below) increased 34% to $12.6 million, compared to $9.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. On a per share basis, adjusted net income increased 36% to $0.26 per diluted share, based on a weighted-average share count of 49.2 million shares, from $0.19 per diluted share, based on a pro forma share count of 50.2 million shares in the fourth quarter of 2016. Adjusted net income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 includes an excess tax benefit from stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock of approximately $0.05 per share.

Balance Sheet

At December 31, 2017, the Company had $10.1 million in cash, as compared to $15.3 million as of December 31, 2016. Inventory at December 31, 2017 totaled $62.7 million, compared to $69.4 million on December 31, 2016. At December 31, 2017, long-term debt totaled $147.7 million, as compared to $156.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

Company Outlook

In January, the Company outlined an expectation for a net sales and Adjusted EBITDA CAGR of 10-15% from 2016 to 2019. Consistent with this CAGR and the Company’s results in 2017, its outlook for 2018 is for net sales and Adjusted EBITDA growth of 6-8%. The outlook assumes minimal new space or doors at national retailers other than the previously announced expansion at Ulta Beauty.

“We see meaningful future whitespace ahead, despite continued category headwinds assumed in 2018,” stated Tarang Amin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe we have developed a unique set of capabilities over the last several years that can be leveraged to drive further value in the core e.l.f. business and prospective new brands.”

The Company is providing the following full year guidance for 2018:

             
Fiscal
2018 Outlook Fiscal
 

    (Approx.)    

    2017 Actual     

   

    % Change       

Net Sales $   286-291 million $   270 million 6-8%
Adjusted EBITDA $ 65-66.5 million $ 62 million 6-8%
Adjusted Net Income $ 30-31 million $ 32 million (a) (1)-(4)%
Adjusted Diluted EPS $ 0.59-0.61 $ 0.64 (a) (5)-(8)%
Fully Diluted Shares Outstanding 51.4 million 49.4 million 4%
 
(a) The Company's 2018 Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS guidance excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets. The Company expects to exclude these items from its Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS metrics beginning with the first quarter of fiscal 2018. Fiscal 2017 Adjusted Net Income includes $4.4 million in amortization of acquired intangible assets (net of the related tax effect).
 

The Company expects its effective tax rate for fiscal 2018 to be approximately 30%, before the impact of any discrete items. The Company’s outlook for 2018 assumes no tax benefits from stock option exercises or vesting of restricted stock. The Company’s fiscal 2017 results include tax benefits from these items totaling $7.2 million, or $0.15 per share.

Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes references to Adjusted SG&A, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted Pro Forma Diluted EPS. The Company presents these measures because its management uses these as supplemental measures in assessing its operating performance, and believes they are helpful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company’s performance. The measures referenced above are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and they should not be considered as alternatives to measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these alternative measures should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. These alternative measures have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider such measures either in isolation or as substitutes for analyzing the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. The Company’s definitions and calculations of these alternative measures are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation. Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization) excludes costs related to “restructuring” of operations, initial public offering costs, stock-based compensation, management fees paid to our sponsor, retail store pre-opening costs, customer expansion costs, other non-cash and non-recurring costs and (gains)/losses on foreign currency contracts. Adjusted Net Income excludes costs related to “restructuring” of operations, initial public offering costs, stock-based compensation, management fees paid to our sponsor, retail store pre-opening costs, customer expansion costs, other non-cash and non-recurring costs, (gains)/losses on foreign currency contracts, debt extinguishment costs and the tax impact of the foregoing adjustments. Adjusted Pro Forma Diluted EPS equals Adjusted Net Income divided by fully-diluted pro forma share count, which reflects the number of shares issued with the initial public offering in September 2016 as if they had been outstanding as of January 1, 2016. With respect to the Company’s expectations under “Company Outlook” above, the Company is not able to provide a quantitative reconciliation of the Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS guidance non-GAAP measures to the corresponding Net Income and Diluted EPS GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts. The Company cannot provide meaningful estimates of the non-recurring charges and credits excluded from these non-GAAP measures due to the forward-looking nature of these estimates and their inherent variability and uncertainty. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.

The net loss per share in fiscal 2016 was primarily driven by the requirement for the Company to accrete its preferred stock to maximum redemption value, prior to its conversion as part of the initial public offering. These accretion charges were deducted from net income for purposes of calculating GAAP earnings per share, and created a loss attributable to common stockholders in that period.
