Planet Fitness, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2022 Results

System-wide same store sales increased 15.9%

Ends first quarter with total membership of more than 16.2 million

HAMPTON, N.H., May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Planet Fitness, Inc. (NYSE: PLNT) reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

"Over the past two-plus years of operating during the pandemic, we've learned to be nimble and resilient while staying true to our mission of providing a high-quality, affordable fitness experience in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment. During the first quarter we completed the acquisition of Sunshine Fitness, one of our best-performing franchisees as well as a successful refinancing of a portion of our debt. We are bullish on the future and believe that the acquisition strengthens our powerful business model by enhancing our corporate store team and diversifying the geographic profile of our corporate-owned stores, and the refinancing further supports our business model, by locking in low rates on a significant portion our debt," said Chris Rondeau, Chief Executive Officer. "We are looking forward to the upcoming launch of the High School Summer Pass that offers teens a chance to workout for free at our gyms over the summer – an extremely important initiative given the alarming teen mental health crisis in the U.S. Additionally, we are excited about our entry into new markets such as New Zealand and the opening of our first stores in Mexico under the new development agreement we signed last year."

Operating Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2022

For the first quarter 2022, total revenue increased $74.8 million or 66.9% to $186.7 million from $111.9 million in the prior year period, which included system-wide same store sales growth of 15.9%.  By segment:

  • Franchise segment revenue increased $16.0 million or 25.0% to $80.1 million from $64.1 million in the prior year period. The increase in franchise segment revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was primarily due to a $9.9 million increase in franchise royalty revenue, a $2.4 million increase in National Advertising Fund ("NAF") revenue, a $2.0 million increase in franchise and other fees, and a $1.5 million increase in placement revenue. Of the $9.9 million increase in royalty revenue, $5.7 million was primarily attributable to a same store sales increase of 15.8% in franchisee-owned stores, $4.5 million was attributable to new stores opened since January 1, 2021 and stores that were not open for all of the prior year period due to COVID related temporary closures, and $1.2 million was from higher royalties on annual fees. Partially offsetting the royalty revenue increases was a decrease of approximately $1.6 million as a result of 114 franchisee-owned stores becoming corporate-owned stores as a result of the acquisition of Sunshine Fitness Growth Holdings, LLC in the first quarter of 2022 (the "Sunshine Acquisition");
  • Corporate-owned stores segment revenue increased $38.3 million or 101.1% to $76.2 million from $37.9 million in the prior year period. Of the increase, $28.7 million was attributable to the acquisition of 114 stores in the Sunshine Acquisition, $5.0 million was from new stores opened since January 1, 2021 and stores that were not open for all of the prior year period due to COVID related temporary closures, and $4.6 million was from the corporate-owned store same store sales increase of 17.0%; and
  • Equipment segment revenue increased $20.5 million or 206.2% to $30.4 million from $9.9 million in the prior year period, driven by higher equipment sales to new and existing franchisee-owned stores in the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. In the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company had equipment sales to 33 new franchisee-owned stores compared to 18 in the prior year period.

For the first quarter of 2022, net income attributable to Planet Fitness, Inc. was $16.5 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $5.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Net income was $18.4 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $6.2 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net income increased $20.0 million to $29.0 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, from $9.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted net income has been adjusted to reflect a normalized federal income tax rate of 26.2% and 26.6% for the current and prior year period, respectively, and excludes certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in the evaluation of ongoing operational performance (see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures").

Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in the evaluation of ongoing operational performance (see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"), increased $33.6 million to $77.3 million from $43.7 million in the prior year period.

Segment EBITDA represents our Total Segment EBITDA broken down by the Company's reportable segments. Total Segment EBITDA is equal to EBITDA, which is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures").

  • Franchise segment EBITDA increased $18.9 million to $60.1 million. The increase in franchise segment EBITDA for the first quarter of 2022 was primarily due to the revenue increases described above. Additionally, franchise selling general and administrative expense was $2.9 million lower than the prior year period as a result of lower franchise selling general and administrative spend to support our franchisees compared to the prior year. Partially offsetting these EBITDA increases, NAF expense was $1.8 million higher in the three months ended March 31, 2022 than in the prior year period;
  • Corporate-owned stores segment EBITDA increased $12.7 million to $23.4 million. The increase was primarily attributable to higher corporate-owned store four-wall EBITDA, partially offset by higher corporate-owned store selling general and administrative expense, both as a result of the Sunshine Acquisition; and
  • Equipment segment EBITDA increased by $6.8 million to $8.7 million driven by higher equipment sales to new and existing franchisee-owned stores in the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, as described above.

2022 Outlook

For the year ending December 31, 2022, the Company is reiterating the following expectations as compared to the Company's 2021 results, which includes the impact from the Sunshine Acquisition and assumes there is no significant worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic that seriously impacts performance, including prolonged store closures or other mandated operational restrictions:

  • New equipment placements of approximately 170 in franchisee-owned locations
  • System-wide same store sales in the low double-digit percentage range

The following are 2022 growth expectations over the Company's 2021 results:

  • Revenue to increase in the mid-50 percent range
  • Adjusted EBITDA to increase in the high-50 percent range
  • Adjusted Net Income to increase in the low-90 percent range
  • Adjusted earnings per share to increase in the mid-80 percent range, based on Adjusted diluted shares outstanding of approximately 91.1 million, inclusive of the issuance of equity as part of the Sunshine Acquisition

The Company continues to expect 2022 net interest expense to be approximately $89 million as a result of its recent debt refinancing and upsizing.

Presentation of Financial Measures

Planet Fitness, Inc. (the "Company") was formed in March 2015 for the purpose of facilitating the initial public offering (the "IPO") and related recapitalization transactions that occurred in August 2015, and in order to carry on the business of Pla-Fit Holdings, LLC ("Pla-Fit Holdings") and its subsidiaries. As the sole managing member of Pla-Fit Holdings, the Company operates and controls all of the business and affairs of Pla-Fit Holdings, and through Pla-Fit Holdings, conducts its business. As a result, the Company consolidates Pla-Fit Holdings' financial results and reports a non-controlling interest related to the portion of Pla-Fit Holdings not owned by the Company.

The financial information presented in this press release includes non-GAAP financial measures such as EBITDA, Segment EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, to provide measures that we believe are useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental measures of the Company's performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with GAAP. These financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for GAAP financial measures such as net  income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. In addition, in the future, the Company may incur expenses or charges such as those added back to calculate Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by similar amounts or other unusual or nonrecurring items. See the tables at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Total Segment EBITDA, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Same store sales refers to year-over-year sales comparisons for the same store sales base of both corporate-owned and franchisee-owned stores, which is calculated for a given period by including only sales from stores that had sales in the comparable months of both years. We define the same store sales base to include those stores that have been open and for which monthly membership dues have been billed for longer than 12 months. We measure same store sales based solely upon monthly dues billed to members of our corporate-owned and franchisee-owned stores.

The non-GAAP financial measures used in our full-year outlook will differ from net income and net income per share, diluted, determined in accordance with GAAP in ways similar to those described in the reconciliations at the end of this press release. We do not provide guidance for net income or net income per share, diluted, determined in accordance with GAAP or a reconciliation of guidance for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because we are not able to predict with reasonable certainty the amount or nature of all items that will be included in our net income and net income per share, diluted, for the year ending December 31, 2022. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the Company's guidance for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, to the most directly comparable GAAP measure cannot be made available without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on many factors and could have a material impact on our net income and net income per share, diluted, for the year ending December 31, 2022.

Investor Conference Call

The Company will hold a conference call at 8:00 AM (ET) on May 10, 2022 to discuss the news announced in this press release. A live webcast of the conference call will be accessible at www.planetfitness.com via the "Investor Relations" link. The webcast will be archived on the website for one year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)
(Amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Total Segment EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted (collectively, the "non-GAAP financial measures"). The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, are useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release are supplemental measures of the Company's performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with GAAP. These financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for GAAP financial measures such as net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. In addition, in the future, the Company may incur expenses or charges such as those added back to calculate Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

EBITDA, Segment EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We refer to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as we use these measures to evaluate our operating performance and we believe these measures provide useful information to investors in evaluating our performance. We have also disclosed Segment EBITDA as an important financial metric utilized by the Company to evaluate performance and allocate resources to segments in accordance with ASC 280, Segment Reporting. We define EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Segment EBITDA sums to Total Segment EBITDA which is equal to the Non-GAAP financial metric EBITDA. We believe that EBITDA, which eliminates the impact of certain expenses that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance, provides useful information to investors to assess the performance of our segments as well as the business as a whole. Our board of directors also uses EBITDA as a key metric to assess the performance of management. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for the impact of certain additional non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing performance of the Company's core operations. These items include certain purchase accounting adjustments, stock offering-related costs, and certain other charges and gains. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance in addition to EBITDA because it eliminates the impact of other items that we believe reduce the comparability of our underlying core business performance from period to period and is therefore useful to our investors in comparing the core performance of our business from period to period.

(1)

Includes a $1,583 loss on extinguishment of debt in the three months ended March 31, 2022.

(2)

Represents the impact of revenue-related purchase accounting adjustments associated with the acquisition of Pla-Fit Holdings on November 8, 2012 by TSG (the "2012 Acquisition"). At the time of the 2012 Acquisition, the Company maintained a deferred revenue account, which consisted of deferred area development agreement fees, deferred franchise fees, and deferred enrollment fees that the Company billed and collected upfront but recognizes for U.S. GAAP purposes at a later date. In connection with the 2012 Acquisition, it was determined that the carrying amount of deferred revenue was greater than the fair value assessed in accordance with ASC 805—Business Combinations, which resulted in a write-down of the carrying value of the deferred revenue balance upon application of acquisition push-down accounting under ASC 805. These amounts represent the additional revenue that would have been recognized in these periods if the write-down to deferred revenue had not occurred in connection with the application of acquisition pushdown accounting.

(3)

Represents the impact of rent-related purchase accounting adjustments. In accordance with guidance in ASC 805 – Business Combinations, in connection with the 2012 Acquisition, the Company's deferred rent liability was required to be written off as of the acquisition date and rent was recorded on a straight-line basis from the acquisition date through the end of the lease term. This resulted in higher overall recorded rent expense each period than would have otherwise been recorded had the deferred rent liability not been written off as a result of the acquisition push down accounting applied in accordance with ASC 805. Adjustments of $45 and $49 in the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, reflect the difference between the higher rent expense recorded in accordance with U.S. GAAP since the acquisition and the rent expense that would have been recorded had the 2012 Acquisition not occurred. Adjustments of $64 and $68 in the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, are due to the amortization of favorable and unfavorable leases. All of the rent related purchase accounting adjustments are adjustments to rent expense which is included in store operations on our consolidated statements of operations.

(4)

Represents the impact of a non-cash loss recorded in accordance with ASC 805 – Business Combinations related to our acquisition of franchisee-owned stores. The loss recorded under U.S. GAAP represents the difference between the fair value and the contractual terms of the reacquired franchise rights and is included in other (gains) losses, net on our consolidated statement of operations.

(5)

Represents a gain on settlement of deferred revenue from existing contracts with acquired franchisee-stores recorded in accordance with ASC 805 – Business Combinations, and is included in other (gains) losses, net on our consolidated statement of operations.

(6)

Represents transactions fees and expenses incurred in connection with our acquisition of franchisee-owned stores.

(7)

Represents a gain on the adjustment of the allowance for credit losses on the Company's held-to-maturity investments.

(8)

Represents dividend income on held-to-maturity investments.

(9)

Represents costs associated with new corporate-owned stores incurred prior to the store opening, including payroll-related costs, rent and occupancy expenses, marketing and other store operating supply expenses.

(10)

Represents an insurance recovery of previously recognized expenses related to the settlement of legal claims.

(11)

Represents gains related to the adjustment of our tax benefit arrangements primarily due to changes in our effective tax rate.

(12)

Represents certain other charges and gains that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share


Our presentation of Adjusted net income assumes that all net income is attributable to Planet Fitness, Inc., which assumes the full exchange of all outstanding Holdings Units for shares of Class A common stock of Planet Fitness, Inc., adjusted for certain non-recurring items that we do not believe directly reflect our core operations. Adjusted net income per share, diluted, is calculated by dividing Adjusted net income by the total shares of Class A common stock outstanding plus any dilutive options and restricted stock units as calculated in accordance with GAAP and assuming the full exchange of all outstanding Holdings Units and corresponding Class B common stock as of the beginning of each period presented. Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, are supplemental measures of operating performance that do not represent, and should not be considered, alternatives to net income and earnings per share, as calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, diluted, supplement GAAP measures and enable us to more effectively evaluate our performance period-over-period. A reconciliation of Adjusted net income to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the computation of Adjusted net income per share, diluted, are set forth below.
