Rent-A-Center, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

Rent-A-Center posts positive consolidated same store sales of 5.7 percent and strong earnings and cash flow from operations

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rent-A-Center, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ/NGS: RCII) today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

"Rent-A-Center faced a number of headwinds when I returned to the Company back in January. In order to improve performance, we executed a plan that included enhancing our value proposition, optimizing our cost structure, and improving cash flow," stated Mitch Fadel, Chief Executive Officer of Rent-A-Center.

Mr. Fadel continued, "During the third quarter, consolidated same store sales increased by 5.7 percent, marking the seventh consecutive quarter of same store sales improvement. The cost savings initiatives, implemented earlier this year, are expected to exceed our announced $100 million annual run-rate savings target, and have been a key contributor towards achieving significant EBITDA improvement year over year. Cash flow from operations is over $180 million year to date, and debt was reduced by $41.1 million during the quarter further strengthening our leverage position."

Acquisition Update

On June 17, 2018, Rent-A-Center entered into a merger agreement (the "Vintage Merger Agreement") with Vintage Rodeo Parent, LLC ("Vintage"), an affiliate of Vintage Capital Management, LLC ("Vintage Capital"), pursuant to which Vintage will, when the proposed merger is completed, acquire all of the outstanding shares of Rent-A-Center common stock for $15.00 per share in cash (collectively, the "Vintage Merger"). The Vintage Merger was approved by the Company's stockholders on September 18, 2018. As previously announced, the parties received a Second Request from the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") in connection with the Vintage Merger. Rent-A-Center and Vintage Capital continue to cooperate fully with the FTC. The parties intend to complete the Vintage Merger as soon as practicable following receipt of regulatory clearance from the FTC and the satisfaction or waiver of other customary closing conditions. The Company currently expects the Vintage Merger, which is not subject to a financing condition, to close during the first quarter of 2019. Upon completion of the Vintage Merger, Rent-A-Center will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Vintage and Rent-A-Center's shares of common stock will be delisted from NASDAQ and deregistered.

Consolidated Overview

Explanations of performance are excluding special items and compared to the third quarter of last year unless otherwise noted.

On a consolidated basis, total revenues were $645.0 million representing an increase of 0.2 percent primarily driven by a consolidated same store sales increase of 5.7 percent partially offset by closures of certain Core U.S. stores. Net earnings and diluted earnings per share, on a GAAP basis, were $12.9 million and $0.24 compared to net loss and diluted loss per share of $12.6 million and $0.24 in the third quarter of last year.

Special items of $6.7 million include charges primarily driven by cost savings initiatives, Core U.S. store closures, and the Vintage Merger transaction.

Excluding special items, the Company’s diluted earnings per share was $0.32 and the Company generated $49.3 million adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter compared to a loss per diluted share of $0.15 and adjusted EBITDA of $17.1 million in the third quarter of last year.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company generated $183.9 million of cash from operations and reduced its outstanding debt balance by $139.3 million, ending the third quarter with $111.0 million of cash and cash equivalents. The Company's term loan was repaid in full as of July 25, 2018.

Segment Operating Performance

CORE U.S. third quarter revenues of $451.3 million increased 1.9 percent due to a same store sales increase of 5.2 percent offset by the rationalization of the Core U.S. store base. Gross profit as a percent of total revenue versus prior year decreased 40 basis points. Labor and other store expenses decreased by $4.9 million and $9.8 million, respectively, driven by lower store count. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding special items of approximately $2.0 million, was $51.5 million and as a percent of total revenue increased 400 basis points versus prior year.

ACCEPTANCE NOW third quarter revenues of $173.4 million decreased 5.9 percent primarily due to closures of the Company's Conn’s and HHGregg locations partially offset by a same store sales increase of 6.7 percent. Gross profit as a percent of total revenue versus prior year decreased 290 basis points primarily due to the intercompany book value adjustment on returned Acceptance NOW products and the value proposition enhancements. Labor and other store expenses decreased by $6.5 million and $13.0 million, respectively, driven by the closure of collection centers and lower skip/stolen losses which decreased by 250 basis points. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding special items of approximately $0.4 million, was $27.1 million and as a percent of total revenue increased 680 basis points versus the prior year.

MEXICO third quarter revenues increased 11.3 percent on a constant currency basis. Gross profit as a percent of total revenue versus prior year increased 30 basis points driven by higher rental sales gross margin. Other store expense improved 370 basis points versus prior year driven by lower skip/stolen losses. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.1 million and as a percent of total revenue increased 560 basis points versus prior year.

FRANCHISING third quarter revenues of $7.4 million increased primarily due to a current year accounting standard change for franchise advertising fees and an increase in merchandise sales driven by higher store count. Adjusted EBITDA was $0.6 million.

CORPORATE third quarter operating expenses decreased $2.1 million compared to the prior year primarily due to the realization of cost savings offset partially by higher incentive compensation.

Note: Same store sale methodology - Same store sales generally represents revenue earned in stores that were operated by us for 13 months or more and are reported on a constant currency basis. The Company excludes from the same store sales base any store that receives a certain level of customer accounts from closed stores or acquisitions. The receiving store will be eligible for inclusion in the same store sales base in the 24th full month following account transfer.

(1) Given the severity of the 2017 hurricanes, the Company instituted a change to the same store sales store selection starting in the month of September 2017, excluding geographically impacted regions for 18 months.

2018 Selected Guidance

The Company is not providing guidance due to the pending Vintage Merger.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation

To supplement the Company's financial results presented on a GAAP basis, Rent-A-Center uses the non-GAAP measures ("special items”) indicated in Table 2 below, which primarily excludes financial impacts in the third quarter of 2018 related to incremental legal and advisory fees associated with the Vintage Merger transaction, store closures, costs savings initiatives, and hurricane damage. Gains or charges related to store closures will generally recur with the occurrence of these events in the future. The presentation of these financial measures is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Rent-A-Center management believes that excluding special items from the GAAP financial results provides investors a clearer perspective of the Company's ongoing operating performance and a more relevant comparison to prior period results. This press release also refers to the non-GAAP measure adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), adjusted for the preceding special items.

Reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in Table 3, below. The Company believes that presentation of adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as, among other things, this information impacts certain financial covenants under the Company's senior credit facilities and the indentures governing its 6.625% senior unsecured notes due November 2020 and its 4.75% senior unsecured notes due May 2021. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the Company, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for or superior to the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similar measures presented by other companies.

Reconciliation of net earnings (loss) to net earnings (loss) excluding special items:

(1) Other charges for the three months ended September 30, 2018 primarily includes financial impacts, net of tax, related to incremental legal and advisory fees associated with the Vintage Merger, store closures, cost savings initiatives, including reductions in overhead and supply chain, and hurricane damage. Other charges for the three months ended September 30, 2017 primarily includes closure of Acceptance Now locations, reductions at the field support center, hurricane damage, and incremental legal and advisory fees, offset by a litigation settlement. Charges related to store closures are primarily comprised of losses on rental merchandise, lease obligation costs, employee severance, asset disposals, and miscellaneous costs incurred as a result of the closures.
