EAGLE, Idaho, Nov. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetIQ, Inc. (“PetIQ” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PETQ), a leading pet medication and wellness company, today reported financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Cord Christensen, PetIQ’s Chairman & CEO commented, “We are very pleased with our record third quarter results. The Product segment returned to a more normal sales cadence, and we increased market share on our core manufactured items for the third consecutive quarter this year, helping to fuel the Company’s profitability. Our net sales growth was led by the e-commerce sales channel with an increase of 51% year-over-year and strong contribution from the Company’s manufactured brands, driven by the flea and tick category and our health and wellness portfolio.”

Christensen continued, “The Services segment also had a solid quarter with double digit growth in pets per clinic and dollars per pet, despite not operating a significant percentage of our clinics due to labor headwinds. Going forward, we continue to expect the strength of our diversified business model to fuel our growth as we deliver smarter options for pet parents to help enrich their pet’s lives through convenient and affordable access to veterinarian products and services.”

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Record net sales of $210.5 million for the third quarter of 2021, increased 29.9%, compared to $162.1 million for the same period in the prior year.

Third quarter net sales were driven by growth in both the Products and Services segments. The Products segment benefited from a robust flea and tick season with broad-based growth across all categories. The Services segment benefited from the reopening of its wellness centers and mobile clinics as compared to the prior year period, despite experiencing labor-related headwinds in the third quarter of 2021. Product segment sales were $181.6 million and Services segment revenues were $29.0 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Third quarter 2021 gross profit was $42.1 million, an increase of 30.4% compared to $32.3 million in the prior year period. Gross margin increased 10 basis points to 20.0% from 19.9% in the prior year period. Adjusted gross profit was $45.9 million compared to $35.6 million in the prior year period, which reflects the growth in sales of manufactured items such as Capstar®. Adjusted gross margin increased 20 basis points to 22.6% for the third quarter 2021 compared to 22.4% in the prior year period.

Net loss, adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021 includes a $2.0 million R&D milestone payment accrual for a future over-the-counter pet medication launch within the Company’s general and administrative expenses.

Net loss was $8.3 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to a net loss of $71.5 million in the prior year period. The improvement in net loss was driven by a favorable shift in sales mix to the Company’s manufactured products and the reopening of wellness centers and community clinics as compared to the prior year period, partially offset by the aforementioned R&D milestone payment accrual and an accrual for legal settlements of $2.3 million.  The third quarter of 2020 net loss was primarily due a $53.2 million tax expense driven by a non-cash tax valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax assets. Adjusted net income was $2.4 million an improvement compared to an adjusted net loss of $1.3 million in the prior year period.

Third quarter adjusted EBITDA was $16.4 million, an increase of 36.3%, compared to $12.0 million in the prior year period.  The Adjusted EBITDA increase was driven by the gross profit contributed from the Products segment and a return to positive contribution for the Services segment, partially offset by the aforementioned R&D milestone payment accrual. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 40 basis points to 7.8% compared to 7.4% in the prior year period.

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted G&A, adjusted net income, 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, including the increase of manufacturing operations as a result of the Perrigo Animal Health Acquisition and the Capstar® Acquisition in the Products segment and the growth of the Company’s wellness centers, host partners, and regions within the Services segment. See “Non-GAAP 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 third quarter of 2021, Product segment net sales increased 21.0% to $181.6 million. For comparative purposes, net sales increased 33%, excluding sales from a major animal health manufacturer that is no longer included in the base.  The third 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 with an increase of 16% and 24%, respectively as compared to the prior year period. The e-commerce sales channel was increased 51% as compared to the third quarter last year, led by the Company’s manufactured brands that increased 76% when compared to the same period last year.

Product adjusted EBITDA increased 28.0% to $33.7 million, representing an adjusted EBITDA margin increase of 100 basis points to 18.5% compared to the prior year period. Product segment net sales and adjusted EBITDA benefited from an increased sales mix of manufactured products, and overall better year-over-year growth as compared to the prior year, partially offset by higher prescription drug product sales. This compares to Product segment sales and adjusted EBITDA of $150.1 million and $26.3 million, respectively, for the third quarter of 2020.

For the first nine months of 2021 Product segment net sales of $654.4 million compared to $580.7 million for the prior year period, an increase of 12.7%. Product adjusted EBITDA increased 30.5% to $120.7 million, representing an adjusted EBITDA margin of 18.4%, an increase of 250 basis points.

Services:

For the third quarter of 2021, Services segment net revenues were $29.0 million, an increase of $17.0 million, compared to $12.0 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 experiencing labor-related headwinds in the third quarter of 2021. Services segment adjusted EBITDA was $3.8 million compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2020.

For the first nine months of 2021 Services Segment net revenues were $81.4 million compared to $35.2 million for the prior year period, an increase of $46.3 million. Services segment adjusted EBITDA increased $6.1 million to $8.9 million for the first nine months of 2021 compared to $2.8 million for the prior year period.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $63.2 million. The Company’s long-term debt balance, which is largely comprised of its revolving credit facility, term loan and convertible debt, was $438.4 million as of September 30, 2021. The Company entered into new $425 million credit facilities, replacing existing facilities in April 2021. The credit facilities provide more favorable terms including a 125-basis point decrease in the Company’s annual interest rate on its term loan and greater financial flexibility to support future growth, representing total liquidity of $188.2 million as of September 30, 2021.

Working capital increased to $197.7 million as of September 30, 2021, and increase of $56.2 million from December 31, 2020, primarily as a result of normal working capital increases in accounts receivable and inventory given the seasonality of the business and the timing of new product launches.

Outlook

The Company expects to open approximately 100 new wellness centers in 2021 compared to its previously stated plan to open 130 to 170. The Company plans to begin construction on new wellness centers once all required in-center labor is hired given the current labor market. While the Company’s outlook remains suspended due to the uncertainty from potential COVID-19 and Delta-variant related impacts to its business, it continues to have record year-over-year net sales and adjusted EBITDA results.  The Company is optimistic the Services segment will continue to generate significant improvements to its operations in the fourth quarter of 2021. As the impacts to the Company’s Services segment lessen and become more predictable, it will then be in a better position to provide formal guidance.

For the Products segment, the Company maintains its strong visibility to another year of solid sales growth and Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion. The Company continues to expect full year 2021 incremental EBITDA contribution from Capstar® of greater than $20 million. Long-term, the Company remains confident in achieving its strategic and financial objectives.

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; disruptions in our manufacturing and distribution chains; 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 failure 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” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 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 G&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, new clinic launch expense, 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 (loss) net income is utilized by management: to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

Adjusted gross profit consists of gross profit adjusted for gross 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 G&A consists of G&A adjusted for acquisition expense, stock compensation expense, non-same store G&A, integrations expense, clinic launch expense, COVID 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 G&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 G&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 G&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 G&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 G&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 G&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.

(2) Loss on debt extinguishment and related costs are related to our entering into two new credit facilities, including the write off of deferred financing costs and related out of pocket costs.
