CAMP HILL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) today reported operating results for its second fiscal quarter ended September 1, 2018.

For the second quarter, the company reported net loss from continuing operations of $352.3 million, or $0.33 per share, Adjusted net loss from continuing operations of $7.9 million, or $0.01 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $148.6 million, or 2.7 percent of revenues.

“During the quarter, we have been hard at work accelerating our standalone strategy to capitalize on key opportunities to grow our business,” said Rite Aid Chairman and CEO John Standley. ”These efforts helped us drive significant improvement in front-end and pharmacy comparable stores sales and exceed our plans for script count growth. With our trusted brand of health and wellness, highly popular customer loyalty program, innovative Wellness format and expanding offering of health and wellness services, we have a strong foundation for growth.”

“While we have important work ahead of us, we also have full confidence in our strategy, our team and our company to succeed in building significant momentum for the future as we continue to work to meet the evolving needs of our customers and create value for our shareholders,” Standley added.

Second Quarter Summary

Revenues from continuing operations for the quarter were $5.4 billion compared to revenues from continuing operations of $5.3 billion in the prior year’s second quarter. Retail Pharmacy Segment revenues were $3.9 billion and increased 0.2 percent compared to the prior year period due to an increase in same store sales, partially offset by a reduction in store count. Revenues in the Pharmacy Services Segment were $1.6 billion, an increase of 4.6 percent compared to the prior year period, which was due to an increase in Medicare Part D membership.

Same store sales from Retail Pharmacy continuing operations for the quarter increased 1.0 percent compared to the prior year, consisting of a 1.6 percent increase in pharmacy sales and 0.1 percent decrease in front-end sales. Pharmacy sales included an approximate 107 basis point negative impact from new generic introductions. The number of prescriptions filled in same stores, adjusted to 30-day equivalents, increased 1.1 percent compared to the prior year period. Prescription sales from continuing operations accounted for 66.4 percent of total drugstore sales.

Net loss from continuing operations was $352.3 million or $0.33 per share compared to last year’s second quarter net income from continuing operations of $188.4 million or $0.18 per share. The company’s net loss in the quarter ended September 1, 2018 was due primarily to a charge of $282.6 million, net of tax, for the impairment of intangible assets, including goodwill, related to our Pharmacy Services Segment. The company’s net income in the quarter ended September 2, 2017 was positively impacted by the receipt of the $325.0 million merger termination fee from Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (Nasdaq: WBA) for the termination of the merger agreement. Also impacting results was an increase in lease termination and impairment charges, merger and acquisition related costs and a litigation settlement, offset by an increase in Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $148.6 million or 2.7 percent of revenues for the second quarter compared to Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $136.9 million or 2.6 percent of revenues for the same period last year, an increase of $11.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter included $23.2 million of fees under the Transition Services Agreement (The “TSA”) with WBA. Prior year Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations does not include $24.0 million of fees that would have been earned if all of the stores that were sold to WBA were supported under the TSA for that period. Fiscal 2018 second quarter Pro-forma Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations would have been $160.9 million after adjusting for these fees. Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations declined $12.3 million compared to the prior year Pro-forma Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the same period. The retail pharmacy segment Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations decreased $8.0 million compared to the prior year Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations due to a decline in pharmacy gross profit, which was driven by a decline in reimbursement rates which we were unable to fully offset with generic drug purchasing efficiencies and script growth. The pharmacy services segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased $4.3 million due to margin compression in the company’s commercial business and other operating investments to support current year and future growth.

In the second quarter, the company remodeled 33 stores, bringing the total number of wellness stores chainwide to 1,726. During the second quarter, the company closed 8 stores and opened 1 store, resulting in a total store count of 2,526 at the end of the second quarter.

Outlook for Fiscal 2019

Rite Aid is confirming its fiscal 2019 outlook for revenues, same store sales, Adjusted EBITDA and capital expenditures. Rite Aid expects revenues to be between $21.7 billion and $22.1 billion in fiscal 2019 with same store sales expected to range from an increase of 0.0 percent to 1.0 percent over fiscal 2018. Adjusted EBITDA (which is reconciled to net loss in the attached table) is expected to be between $540.0 million and $590.0 million. Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $250 million.

Net loss is now expected to be between $440 million and $485 million, which is higher than previously announced due primarily to the impairment charges incurred this quarter. Additionally, during the second quarter of fiscal 2019, we modified our definition of adjusted net (loss) income to reflect the add back of all amortization rather than the amortization of EnvisionRx intangible assets only. After giving effect to the change in our definition, adjusted net (loss) income per share is now expected to be between a loss of $0.03 and income of $0.01.

Governance and Board Changes

As announced in a separate press release today, Rite Aid is making changes to its Board composition and governance structure, including the nomination of three new independent directors and the separation of the positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The changes follow the Board’s ongoing engagement with Rite Aid’s stockholders and strengthen and enhance the Board’s governance oversight consistent with the company’s commitment to align its interests with those of its stockholders.

As part of the changes, Robert E. Knowling, Jr., Louis P. Miramontes and Arun Nayar will stand for election at the 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, replacing current Rite Aid Directors David Jessick, Myrtle Potter and Frank Savage, who will not stand for re-election. In addition, current director Bruce G. Bodaken will hold the position of Chairman, effective at the Annual Meeting.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this release that are not historical, are forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding Rite Aid’s outlook for fiscal 2019; the expected timing and the ability to complete the subsequent closings of the sale of the remaining Rite Aid distribution centers and related assets to WBA; Rite Aid’s competitive position and ability to implement new strategies following completion of such transaction with WBA and following the termination of the proposed merger with Albertsons Companies, Inc. (“ACI”); and any assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” and “will” and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, assumptions and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, our high level of indebtedness and our ability to make interest and principal payments on our debt and satisfy the other covenants contained in our debt agreements; general economic, industry, market, competitive, regulatory and political conditions; our ability to improve the operating performance of our stores in accordance with our long term strategy; the impact of private and public third-party payers continued reduction in prescription drug reimbursements and efforts to encourage mail order; our ability to manage expenses and our investments in working capital; outcomes of legal and regulatory matters; changes in legislation or regulations, including healthcare reform; our ability to achieve the benefits of our efforts to reduce the costs of our generic and other drugs; risks related to the pending sale of the remaining Rite Aid distribution centers and related assets to WBA, including the possibility that the transactions may not close, or the business of Rite Aid may suffer as a result of uncertainty surrounding the pending transactions; risks resulting from the termination of the proposed merger with ACI, including the risk that the termination could have an adverse effect on Rite Aid’s ability to retain customers and retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with suppliers and customers and on our operating results and businesses generally; the risk of litigation related to the termination of the merger agreement with ACI or the proposed merger; and potential changes to our strategy following the termination of the proposed merger with ACI, which may include delaying or reducing capital or other expenditures, selling assets or other operations, attempting to restructure or refinance our debt, or seeking additional capital, and other business effects. These and other risks, assumptions and uncertainties are more fully described in Item 1A (Risk Factors) of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in other documents that we file or furnish with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which you are encouraged to read. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward- looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. Rite Aid expressly disclaims any current intention to update publicly any forward-looking statement after the distribution of this release, whether as a result of new information, future events, changes in assumptions or otherwise.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rite Aid separately reports financial results on the basis of Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Pro-Forma Adjusted EBITDA which are non-GAAP financial measures. See the attached tables for a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Pro-Forma Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), and net income (loss) per diluted share, which are the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share exclude amortization expense, merger and acquisition-related costs,non-recurring litigation settlement, loss on debt retirements, LIFO adjustments, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and the WBA merger termination fee. The current calculations of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share reflect a modification made in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to add back all amortization expenses rather than the amortization of EnvisionRx intangible assets only. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) excluding the impact of income taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, LIFO adjustments, charges or credits for facility closing and impairment, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, inventory write-downs related to store closings, loss on debt retirements, the WBA merger termination fee, and other items (including stock-based compensation expense, merger and acquisition-related costs, non-recurring litigation settlement, severance and costs related to facility closures and gain or loss on sale of assets). The current calculation of Adjusted EBITDA reflects a modification made in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to eliminate the add back of revenue deferrals related to our customer loyalty program and to present amounts previously included within other as separate reconciling items. We further note that the add back of LIFO (credit) charge when calculating Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share removes the entire impact of LIFO (credits) charges, and effectively reflects Rite Aid’s results as if the company was on a FIFO inventory basis.

Rite Aid believes that Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is beneficial to investors to reflect what Rite Aid’s financial results would have been had it received all of the fees that it would have earned pursuant to the TSA with WBA for the relevant period. Rite Aid defines Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted EBITDA plus the fees that would have been earned under the TSA with WBA for the relevant period, and in order to improve comparability.
