Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Record net sales of $196.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, increased 19.7%, compared to $164.2 million for the same period in the prior year. Fourth quarter net sales were driven by growth in both the Product and Services segments. The Product segment benefited from a robust and stronger than normal end to the flea and tick season with broad-based growth across all categories and continued strength in manufactured products. The Services segment benefited from the reopening of wellness centers and mobile clinics as compared to the prior year period, despite the continued labor-related headwinds experienced in the fourth quarter of 2021. Product segment sales were $170.9 million and Services segment revenues were $25.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Fourth quarter 2021 gross profit was $36.9 million, an increase of 29.1% compared to $28.6 million in the prior year period. Gross margin increased 140 basis points to 18.8% from 17.4% in the prior year period. Adjusted gross profit was $40.2 million compared to $32.3 million in the prior year period, which reflects favorable product mix including the growth in sales of the Company’s manufactured product portfolio with items such as Capstar® and reflects the benefit of wellness center optimization. Adjusted gross margin increased 130 basis points to 21.3% for the fourth quarter 2021 compared to 20.0% in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) was $41.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to $32.6 million in the prior year period. Adjusted SG&A was $34.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to $27.1 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net sales adjusted SG&A was 18.1% an increase of 130 basis points compared to the prior year period. The increase in SG&A on a GAAP and adjusted basis was primarily due to increased expenses to support the Company’s growth, including increased selling and advertising costs to support the Services segment wellness center clinic openings and to support growth of PetIQ owned brands in the Products segment.

Net loss was $14.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to a net loss of $10.1 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net loss was $0.3 million an improvement of $0.7 million compared to an adjusted net loss of $1.0 million in the prior year period.

Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA was $15.3 million, an increase of 17.6%, compared to $13.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased slightly to 7.8% compared to 7.9% in the prior year period which reflects the timing of expenses as full year adjusted EBITDA margin of 10.0% increased 140 basis points compared to 2020.

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted net loss, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with additional insight into the way management views reportable segment operations. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a definition of these measures and the financial tables that accompany this release for a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Segment Results

Product:

For the fourth quarter of 2021, Product segment net sales increased 17.8% to $170.9 million from $145.1 million in the prior year period. For comparative purposes, Product segment net sales increased 17.4%, excluding $0.5 million in sales related to loss of distribution rights for certain animal health manufacturing products, as previously communicated the last few quarters. A reconciliation table of reported net sales to pro forma net sales and adjusted EBITDA for each quarter of 2021 and the full year 2021 is included in this release. The fourth quarter increase in net sales was driven by broad-based growth across all product categories led by the flea and tick and health and wellness categories.

Product segment adjusted EBITDA increased 15.7% to $28.7 million from adjusted EBITDA of $24.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Product segment adjusted EBITDA margin in the fourth quarter of 2021 decreased 30 basis points to 16.8% compared to the prior year period.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, Product segment net sales increased 13.7% to $825.4 million compared to $725.7 million for the prior year period. For comparative purposes, Product segment net sales increased 8.8%, excluding $36.1 million in sales related to loss of distribution rights for certain animal health manufacturing products, as previously communicated the last few quarters. Product adjusted EBITDA increased 27.4% to $149.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, representing an adjusted EBITDA margin of 18.1%, an increase of 190 basis points.

Services:

For the fourth quarter of 2021, Services segment net revenues were $25.7 million, an increase of 34.1% compared to $19.2 million in the same period last year. The increase in Services segment net revenues was driven by the re-opening of wellness centers and mobile clinics as compared to the prior year period, despite the continued labor-related headwinds the Company experienced in the fourth quarter of 2021. Services segment adjusted EBITDA was $2.8 million compared to $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, Services segment net revenues were $107.1 million compared to $54.3 million for the prior year period, an increase of 97.1%. Services segment adjusted EBITDA increased $8.4 million to $11.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $3.4 million for the prior year period.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $79.4 million. The Company’s long-term debt, which is comprised of its term loan and convertible debt, was $448.5 million as of December 31, 2021. The Company had total liquidity, which it defines as cash on hand plus availability, of $204.4 million as of December 31, 2021.

Outlook

The Company is reintroducing annual and quarterly guidance.

For the full year 2022 the Company expects:

  • Net sales of approximately $985 million representing an increase of 5.6% compared to 2021. For comparative purposes, the Company expects net sales to increase approximately 10.0% excluding $36.1 million of sales related to loss of distribution rights for certain animal health manufacturing products, previously communicated the last few quarters.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $100 million representing an increase of 7.6% compared to 2021. For comparative purposes, the Company expects adjusted EBITDA to increase approximately 10.0%, excluding $1.8 million in adjusted EBITDA related to loss of distribution rights for certain animal health manufacturing products, previously communicated the last few quarters.

The Company’s annual adjusted EBITDA outlook assumes adjusted SG&A to increase approximately 100 basis points to 17.3% in 2022 compared to 16.3% in 2021 as a result of an incremental $15 million, or 150 basis points of expense, to support its launch into direct-to-consumer channels, two significant new manufactured brand introductions, and continued marketing investments to help accelerate growth of its manufactured brand product portfolio. The Company expects two-thirds of the aforementioned incremental $15 million of SG&A expense to be incurred in the first half of 2022 with a majority recognized in the second quarter of 2022 and zero incremental expense in the fourth quarter of 2022. The annual outlook also assumes nominal improvement in adjusted EBITDA contribution from the Services segment given the continued volatility in the segment’s results as a result of the ongoing impact to the veterinarian labor market from the global pandemic. The Company expects 2022 net sales seasonality to be very similar to the net sales cadence in 2021 for the first two quarters of the year. In the second half of 2021, the Company benefited from a strong late flea and tick season and as a result it expects most of the net sales growth in the second half of 2022 will be weighted to the third quarter with the fourth quarter net sales up nominally.

For the first quarter of 2022 the Company expects:

  • Net sales of approximately $270 million representing an increase of 6.0% compared to the first quarter of 2021. For comparative purposes, the Company expects net sales to increase approximately 15.3%, excluding $20.2 million of sales related to loss of distribution rights for certain animal health manufacturing products, previously communicated the last few quarters.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $28 million representing an increase of 4.1% compared to the first quarter of 2021. For comparative purposes, the Company expects adjusted EBITDA to increase 8.3%, excluding $1.0 million in adjusted EBITDA related to loss of distribution rights for certain animal health manufacturing products, as previously communicated the last few quarters. The Company’s first quarter of 2022 adjusted EBITDA outlook assumes adjusted SG&A as a percent of net sales to be relatively consistent with the first quarter of 2021 at 14.7%, despite an incremental $3 million, or 110 basis points of expense, to support two of its significant new manufactured brand introductions and continued marketing investments to help accelerate growth of its manufactured brand product portfolio.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risks and uncertainties, such as statements about our plans, objectives, expectations, assumptions or future events. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expect,” “believe,” “intend,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve estimates, assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from any future results, performances, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to, the impact of COVID-19 on our business and the global economy; our ability to successfully grow our business through acquisitions; our dependency on a limited number of customers; our ability to implement our growth strategy effectively; competition from veterinarians and others in our industry; reputational damage to our brands; economic trends and spending on pets; the effectiveness of our marketing and trade promotion programs; recalls or withdrawals of our products or product liability claims; our ability to manage our manufacturing and supply chain effectively; disruptions in our manufacturing and distribution chains; our ability to introduce new products and improve existing products; our ability to protect our intellectual property; costs associated with governmental regulation; our ability to keep and retain key employees; our ability to sustain profitability; and the risks set forth under the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and other reports filed time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which the statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Consequently, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, PetIQ uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin.

Adjusted net (loss) income consists of net (loss) income adjusted for tax expense, acquisition expenses, integration costs and costs of discontinued clinics, non-same-store revenue, non-same-store costs, litigation costs, loss on debt extinguishment, stock-based compensation expense, CFO transition and COVID-19 related costs. Adjusted net income (loss) is utilized by management to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

Adjusted gross profit consists of gross profit adjusted for gross (profit) loss on veterinarian clinics and wellness centers that are not part of same store sales and COVID related costs. Adjusted gross profit is utilized by management to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

Adjusted SG&A consists of SG&A adjusted for acquisition expenses, stock-based compensation expense, non-same store adjustment, integration costs, COVID-19 related costs, loss on debt extinguishment and related costs, litigation expense and CFO transition costs.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus adjustments for transactions that management does not believe are representative of our core ongoing business. Adjusted EBITDA margin is adjusted EBITDA stated as a percentage of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA is utilized by management: (i) as a factor in evaluating management's performance when determining incentive compensation, (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and (iii) allow for improved comparability over prior periods due to significant growth in the Company’s new wellness centers. The Company presents EBITDA because it is a necessary component for computing adjusted EBITDA.

We believe that the use of adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted general and administrative expenses (Adjusted SG&A), adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin provide additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends. In addition, you should be aware when evaluating adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, that in the future we may incur expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. Our presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by these or other unusual or non-recurring items. Our computation of adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies do not calculate adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in the same manner. Our management does not, and you should not, consider adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA margin, or adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA margin, and adjusted EBITDA is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements. See a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measure, in the financial tables that accompany this release.
