Boot Barn Holdings, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results

Boot Barn Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: BOOT) today announced its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 26, 2020.

For the quarter ended December 26, 2020:

  • Net sales increased 6.5% to $302.3 million.
  • Same store sales increased 4.6%, comprised of an increase in retail store same store sales of 1.9% and an increase in e-commerce sales of 16.3%.
  • Net income was $29.6 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared to net income of $24.8 million, or $0.85 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Net income per diluted share in the current-year period includes an approximately $0.01 per share benefit due to income tax accounting for share-based compensation compared to a $0.04 per share benefit in the prior-year period. Excluding the tax benefit in both periods, net income per diluted share in the current-year period was $0.99, compared to $0.81 in the prior-year period.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $76.3 million.

Jim Conroy, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our strong third quarter results against a difficult economic backdrop demonstrate the power of our business model. The work we’ve done over the last several years successfully executing our key strategic initiatives has provided the foundation to navigate the ongoing headwinds from COVID-19 and deliver mid-single digit same store sales growth and a 150-basis point improvement in operating margin. We are encouraged that same store sales have accelerated in the fourth quarter with continued strength in margin. While the near term is likely to remain volatile, we believe our merchandising strategies, omni-channel capabilities and organizational expertise, combined with the adjustments we’ve made to our operating model during the pandemic, have us well positioned to build on our recent accomplishments and head into fiscal 2022 with good momentum.”

Operating Results for the Third Quarter Ended December 26, 2020

  • Net sales increased 6.5% to $302.3 million from $284.0 million in the prior-year period. Consolidated same store sales increased 4.6% with retail store same store sales up 1.9% and e-commerce same store sales up 16.3%. The increase in net sales was the result of an increase of 4.6% in same store sales and the sales contribution from new and acquired stores over the past twelve months.
  • Gross profit was $106.8 million, or 35.3% of net sales, compared to $97.0 million, or 34.2% of net sales, in the prior-year period. Gross profit increased primarily due to increased sales. The increase in gross profit rate of 120 basis points was driven by a 150-basis point increase in merchandise margin, partially offset by 30 basis points of deleverage in buying and occupancy costs. Merchandise margin increased 150 basis points primarily as a result of better full-price selling and reduced promotions.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $65.2 million, or 21.6% of net sales, compared to $62.1 million, or 21.9% of net sales, in the prior-year period. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily a result of additional costs to support higher sales and expenses for both new and acquired stores. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased by 30 basis points primarily as a result of expense leverage on higher sales.
  • Income from operations increased 19.0% to $41.6 million, or 13.8% of net sales, compared to $35.0 million, or 12.3% of net sales, in the prior-year period. This increase represents approximately 150 basis points of improvement in operating profit margin.
  • Net income was $29.6 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared to net income of $24.8 million, or $0.85 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Net income per diluted share in the current-year period includes an approximately $0.01 per share benefit due to income tax accounting for share-based compensation compared to a $0.04 per share benefit in the prior-year period. Excluding the tax benefit in both periods, net income per diluted share in the current-year period was $0.99, compared to $0.81 in the prior-year period.

Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended December 26, 2020

  • Net sales decreased 3.4% to $634.6 million from $656.9 million in the prior-year period. Consolidated same store sales decreased 3.2% with retail store same store sales down 8.9% and e-commerce same store sales up 24.9%. The decrease in retail store sales was primarily due to decreased traffic in our stores that resulted from customers staying at home in response to the COVID-19 crisis and temporary store closures.
  • Gross profit was $202.5 million, or 31.9% of net sales, compared to $218.5 million, or 33.3% of net sales, in the prior-year period. Gross profit decreased primarily due to decreased sales resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. The decrease in gross profit rate was driven by 140 basis points of deleverage in buying and occupancy costs primarily as a result of lower sales.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $149.0 million, or 23.5% of net sales, compared to $154.6 million, or 23.5% of net sales, in the prior-year period. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily a result of reduced marketing expenses and lower payroll.
  • Income from operations decreased 16.4% to $53.5 million, or 8.4% of net sales, compared to $64.0 million, or 9.7% of net sales, in the prior-year period. The decline in income from operations is primarily a result of the negative impact on sales and gross margin from decreased traffic in our stores that resulted from customers staying at home in response to the COVID-19 crisis and temporary store closures.
  • Net income was $34.8 million, or $1.19 per diluted share, compared to net income of $42.2 million, or $1.45 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Net income per diluted share in the current-year period includes an approximately $0.01 per share benefit due to income tax accounting for share-based compensation compared to a $0.07 per share benefit in the prior-year period. Excluding the tax benefit in both periods, net income per diluted share in the current-year period was $1.18, compared to $1.38 in the prior-year period.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this press release are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements refer to our current expectations and projections relating to, by way of example and without limitation, our financial condition, liquidity, profitability, results of operations, margins, plans, objectives, strategies, future performance, business and industry. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as "anticipate", "estimate", "expect", "project", "plan“, "intend", "believe", “may”, “might”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “can have”, “likely”, “outlook” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events, but not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These forward-looking statements are based on assumptions that the Company’s management has made in light of their industry experience and on their perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors they believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you consider this press release, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results. They involve risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Company’s control) and assumptions. These risks, uncertainties and assumptions include, but are not limited to, the following: the effect of COVID-19 on our business operations, growth strategies, store traffic, employee availability, financial condition, liquidity and cash flow; decreases in consumer spending due to declines in consumer confidence, local economic conditions or changes in consumer preferences; the Company’s ability to effectively execute on its growth strategy; and the Company’s failure to maintain and enhance its strong brand image, to compete effectively, to maintain good relationships with its key suppliers, and to improve and expand its exclusive product offerings. The Company discusses the foregoing risks and other risks in greater detail under the heading “Risk factors” in the periodic reports filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although the Company believes that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect the Company’s actual financial results and cause them to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Because of these factors, the Company cautions that you should not place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for the Company to predict those events or how they may affect the Company. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by law, the Company does not intend to update or revise the forward-looking statements in this press release after the date of this press release.
