As of February 3, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Accounting Standards Update 2018-10 and Accounting Standards Update 2018-11 (together, “ASC 842”), which pertain to accounting for leases. The Company’s previous and current guidance conforms to the new policy. Under the Company’s adoption method, the Company’s financial results for prior comparative periods are presented with adjustments to reflect the impact of ASC 842. We have provided reconciliation tables that update historical results to reflect these changes in lease accounting standards.

Please see the tables below for a reconciliation of all GAAP to non-GAAP measures referenced in this press release.

To Our People, Partners, and Shareholders,

First quarter fiscal 2019 was an exceptional start to the year for Team RH. We generated record GAAP revenues of $598 million, an increase of 7.4%, record GAAP operating margin of 11.5%, record adjusted operating margin of 11.8%, record GAAP earnings per share of $1.43, and record adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.85, a 53% increase versus $1.21 a year ago.

As a result of our strong first quarter results, we are raising our fiscal 2019 adjusted net revenue, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin and adjusted earnings guidance for the year as follows:

      Prior Guidance       Updated Guidance
Adjusted net revenue $ 2,585.0     -   $ 2,635.0 $ 2,642.8   -     $ 2,662.8
Adjusted operating income $ 309.4 - $ 331.6 $ 332.5 - $ 350.5
Adjusted operating margin 12.0% - 12.6% 12.6% - 13.2%
Adjusted net income $ 204.0 - $ 220.0 $ 206.2 - $ 218.2
Adjusted diluted EPS $ 8.05 - $ 8.69 $ 8.76 - $ 9.27

The above guidance reflects approximately $20 million of incremental interest expense due to the Company’s first quarter debt financings representing a $0.58 reduction to our fiscal 2019 adjusted diluted EPS guidance. This is offset by our repurchase of 2.17 million shares in the first quarter, which has a weighted average reduction of 1.79 million to our full year diluted share count and a $0.59 benefit to our fiscal 2019 adjusted diluted EPS guidance. As a reminder, the guidance reflects a normalized 26.0% tax rate.

Our focus on elevating the brand and architecting an integrated operating platform continues to result in our profit model leapfrogging past the home furnishings industry and RH becoming one of the few retailers that is growing revenues, expanding margins, increasing operating earnings, and driving significantly higher returns on invested capital.

First quarter revenues accelerated in late March, increasing 7.4% for the quarter compared to the prior year quarter. Net of the approximately 2 point negative drag from eliminating fringe promotions, adjusted net revenues increased 9.4% in the first quarter fiscal 2019. We remain cautiously optimistic that business momentum will continue despite negative macro trends and increased tariffs, supported by the recent introduction of RH Beach House, the continued elevation and expansion of our product offering, investments in RH Interior Design, plus the launch of RH Ski House and new galleries opening this fall.

Our largest and most important new Gallery, RH New York, continues to build momentum and is trending comfortably in excess of $100 million in annualized revenue. Two of our projects scheduled to open late in the fourth quarter, RH San Francisco, The Gallery at The Historic Bethlehem Steel Building, and RH Charlotte, The Gallery at Phillips Place, are experiencing slight delays and will now open in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. We have productive legacy galleries in each of those markets, and due to the late planned openings, we don’t anticipate a material impact to this year’s revenues. We continue to be on track to achieve planned asset sales of $50 - $60 million in Fiscal 2019. We are negotiating a letter of intent for the sale of RH Yountville and expect to begin receiving offers for RH Edina in the fall when the Gallery opens.

Looking forward, we expect to accelerate our real estate transformation to a rate of 5 to 7 new galleries in Fiscal 2020 and a minimum of 7 new galleries in Fiscal 2021.

As a reminder, embedded in our 2019 guidance is approximately 3 point revenue reduction as a result of editing unprofitable and non-strategic businesses, namely the elimination of the remaining holiday business (1 point), the elimination of fringe promotions (1 point), and the transition of our rug business from a single source importer to a direct sourcing model (1 point). As planned, the drag was approximately 2 points in the first quarter and we expect the negative impact to be about 4 points in the second quarter, 2 points in the third quarter and 4 points in the fourth quarter.

Regarding China tariffs, we have renegotiated product costs and selectively raised prices to mitigate the impact of the increase from 10 to 25 percent. We are also moving certain production and new product development out of China, plus exploring new partnerships and expanding our own manufacturing facilities in the United States. Long term, we do not believe the current trade climate will impair our ability to achieve our stated financial goals and the expected impact from the increased tariffs is embedded in our guidance for the year.

We believe our Company remains undervalued, and we continued to execute our share repurchase program in the first quarter, acquiring 2.2 million shares at an average price of $115.36. Inclusive of our share repurchases in 2017 and 2018, we have repurchased 24.4 million shares, or approximately 60% of the total shares outstanding at an average price of $61.40. We believe the repurchase of our shares will prove to be an outstanding allocation of capital for the benefit of our long term shareholders.

In the first quarter we completed multiple debt financings totaling $380 million and amended our credit facility, which in aggregate added $420 million of new liquidity, supporting both further purchases under our share repurchase and the planned repayment of $350 million of convertible notes due June 15, 2019 and $300 million of convertible notes due July 15, 2020. We will continue to be opportunistic as it relates to the capital markets and the repurchase of our shares. Our net debt is currently 2.8x TTM Adjusted EBITDA and we project that we will end the year with net debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDA of approximately 2.0x.

Looking forward, we continue to see a clear path to $4 to $5 billion in North America revenues, and an international opportunity that could lead to RH becoming a $7 to $10 billion dollar global brand.

Our long term targets remain:

Net revenue growth of 8% to 12%
Adjusted operating margins in the mid to high teens
Adjusted net income growth of 15% to 20% annually
Return on invested capital (ROIC) in excess of 50%

We believe the following initiatives will lead to another step change in our financial performance and return on invested capital over the next several years.

  1. Revenue growth driven by our real estate transformation, the elevation and expansion of our product offering, and investments in RH Interior Design will continue to leverage SG&A and Occupancy costs;
  2. The cycling of several capital intensive real estate projects and the shift to predominantly capital light projects, will decrease occupancy costs and increase operating earnings and ROIC;
  3. Increased inventory turns and decreased working capital requirements as a result of our new supply chain strategy will continue to drive lower costs and higher returns on invested capital. To put this point into perspective, if our inventory had grown at the same rate of revenues since Q1 2016, we would have approximately $470 million of additional inventory than we do today and significantly higher operating costs; and
  4. Higher revenues, lower returns and reduced operating costs as a result of our new Home Delivery strategy. We have already identified cost savings of $15 to $20 million that will be captured over fiscal 2019 and 2020.

In total, the above initiatives should translate into an additional 400 to 600 basis points of operating margin and ROIC in excess of 50%.

We do understand that the strategies we are pursuing – opening the largest specialty retail experiences in our industry while most are shrinking the size of the retail footprint or closing stores; moving from a promotional to a membership model, while others are increasing promotions, positioning their brands around price versus product; continuing to mail inspiring Source Books, while many are eliminating catalogs; and refusing to follow the herd in self-promotion on social media, instead allowing our brand to be defined by the taste, design, and quality of the products and experiences we are creating – are all in direct conflict with conventional wisdom and the plans being pursued by many in our industry.

We believe when you step back and consider: one, we are building a brand with no peer; two, we are creating a customer experience that cannot be replicated online; and three, we have total control of our brand from concept to customer, you realize what we are building is extremely rare in today’s retail landscape and, we would argue, will also prove to be equally valuable.

We would like to thank all of our people and partners whose passion and persistence bring our vision and values to life each and every day, as we pursue our quest to become one of the most admired brands in the world.

Carpe Diem,

Gary

Note: We define return on invested capital (ROIC) as adjusted operating income after-tax for the most recent twelve-month period, divided by the average of beginning and ending debt and equity less cash and equivalents as well as short and long-term investments for the most recent twelve-month period. ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our method of determining ROIC may differ from other companies’ methods and therefore may not be comparable.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted net revenue, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income or adjusted net earnings, adjusted net income margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share, normalized adjusted net income, normalized adjusted diluted net income per share, ROIC or return on invested capital, free cash flow, adjusted operating margin, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (collectively, “non-GAAP financial measures”). We compute these measures by adjusting the applicable GAAP measures to remove the impact of certain recurring and non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in this press release may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures, including similarly titled measures, used by other companies.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures tables in this press release. These accompanying tables include details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.

[a] Represents an adjustment to net revenues, increase in cost of goods sold and inventory charges associated with product recalls, as well as accrual adjustments and vendor claims.
[b] Represents the acceleration of depreciation expense of $3.0 million due to a change in the estimated useful lives of certain assets, as well as a $0.5 million charge related to the termination of a service agreement associated with such assets.
[c] Represents the non-cash amortization of the inventory fair value adjustment recorded in connection with our acquisition of Waterworks.
[d] Represents the reversal of an estimated loss on disposal of asset due to negotiations of the sales price being finalized.
[e] Represents costs incurred in connection with a legal settlement.
[f] Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability and equity components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, in accounting for GAAP purposes for the $350 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June 2014 (the “2019 Notes”), for the $300 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June and July 2015 (the “2020 Notes”) and for the $335 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June 2018 (the “2023 Notes”), we separated the 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes into liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components and we are amortizing as debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the equity components as interest expense on the 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes over their expected lives. The equity components represent the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes and the fair value of the liability components of the 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes, respectively. Amounts are presented net of interest capitalized for capital projects of $0.7 million and $0.6 million during the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively.
[g] Assumes a normalized tax rate of 26% for the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018.
[h] Adjusted net income is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted net income as net income, adjusted for the impact of certain non-recurring and other items that we do not consider representative of our underlying operating performance. Adjusted net income is included in this press release because management believes that adjusted net income provides meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitates a meaningful evaluation of operating results on a comparable basis with historical results. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.

[a] For GAAP purposes, we incur dilution above the lower strike prices of our 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes of $116.09, $118.13 and $193.65, respectively. However, we exclude from our adjusted diluted shares outstanding calculation the dilutive impact of the convertible notes between $116.09 and $171.98 for our 2019 Notes, between $118.13 and $189.00 for our 2020 Notes, and between $193.65 and $309.84 for our 2023 Notes, based on the bond hedge contracts in place that will deliver shares to offset dilution in these ranges. At stock prices in excess of $171.98, $189.00 and $309.84, we will incur dilution related to the 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes, respectively, and our obligation to deliver additional shares in excess of the dilution protection provided by the bond hedges. Pro forma diluted net income per share for the three months ended May 4, 2019 is calculated based on GAAP net income and pro forma diluted weighted-average shares of 24,449,403, which excludes dilution related to the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes of 484,584 shares.

SECOND QUARTER AND FISCAL 2019 OUTLOOK
(In millions, except per share data)

The Company is providing the following outlook for the second quarter and full year fiscal 2019:

       
Second Quarter Fiscal Year
2019 2019
Adjusted net revenues $681.0 - $688.0 $2,642.8 - $2,662.8
% growth vs. prior year 6% - 7% 5% - 6%
 
Adjusted gross margin 41.1% - 41.4% 40.5% - 40.8%
(% of net revenues)
 
Adjusted SG&A

28.6% - 28.5%

27.9% - 27.6%
(as % of net revenues)
 
Adjusted operating income

$85.0 - $89.0

$332.5 - $350.5

% growth vs. prior year

13% - 18%

16% - 22%
 
Adjusted operating margin

12.5% - 12.9%

12.6% - 13.2%
(% of net revenues)
 
Adjusted net income

$52.0 - $55.0

$206.2 - $218.2

 
Adjusted diluted EPS

$2.33 - $2.47

$8.76 - $9.27

% growth vs. prior year

24% - 31%

20% - 27%

 
Capital expenditures—net of landlord contributions –– $165 - $185
 
Asset sales –– $50 - $60
 
Free cash flow –– $250 - $275
 

Note: The Company’s adjusted net income does not include certain charges and costs. The adjustments to net revenues, gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses, operating income, operating margin and net income in future periods are generally expected to be similar to the kinds of charges and costs excluded from such non-GAAP financial measures in prior periods, such as unusual non-cash and other compensation expense; legal claim related expenses; recall accruals; reorganization costs including severance costs and related taxes; and non-cash amortization of debt discount, among others. The exclusion of these charges and costs in future periods could have a significant impact on the Company’s adjusted net revenues, adjusted gross margin, adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin and adjusted net income. The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of the Company’s non-GAAP financial guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures without unreasonable effort because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of these future charges and costs.

ESTIMATED DILUTED SHARES OUTSTANDING
(In millions)

                       
Average Stock Price
$ 100.00 $ 120.00 $ 140.00 $ 160.00 $ 180.00 $ 200.00
Q2 2019 adjusted diluted shares outstanding [a] 21.96 22.60 23.04 23.39 23.85 24.54
Fiscal 2019 adjusted diluted shares outstanding [a] 22.37 22.99 23.44 23.79 24.25 24.93
 

Note: The table above is intended to demonstrate the impact of increasing stock prices on our adjusted diluted shares outstanding due to 1) additional in-the-money options and 2) the higher cost of acquired shares under the treasury stock method.

For GAAP purposes, we will incur dilution above the lower strike prices of our 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes of $116.09, $118.13 and $193.65, respectively. However, no additional shares will be included in our adjusted diluted shares outstanding calculation between $116.09 and $171.98 for our 2019 Notes, between $118.13 and $189.00 for our 2020 Notes, and between $193.65 and $309.84 for our 2023 Notes, based on the bond hedge contracts in place that will deliver shares to offset dilution in these ranges. At stock prices in excess of $171.98, $189.00 and $309.84, we will incur dilution related to the 2019 Notes, 2020 Notes and 2023 Notes, respectively, and would have an obligation to deliver additional shares in excess of the dilution protection provided by the bond hedges.

The calculation also includes assumptions around the timing and number of options exercises. Actual diluted shares outstanding may differ if actual exercises differ from estimates. The stock option awards outstanding for RH’s Chairman and CEO are included in all of the adjusted diluted shares outstanding scenarios above based on the exercise prices of $46.50, $75.43 and $50.00 for the November 2012, July 2013 and May 2017 grants, respectively.

   
[a] Includes 0.134 million and 0.562 million incremental shares at $180.00 and $200.00 average share price, respectively, due to dilution from the convertible notes.
