Lumber Liquidators (“LL Flooring” or “Company”) (NYSE: LL), a leading specialty retailer of hard-surface flooring in North America, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

“Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our associates, we delivered strong second quarter financial results as measured on both a one- and two-year basis,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Charles Tyson. “We delivered comparable sales growth of 31.3% and operating margin expansion of 290 basis points versus the second quarter of 2020. We also delivered comparable sales growth of 10.0% on a two-year stack basis and grew our operating margin by 600 basis points versus the second quarter of 2019. Our strong sales and profitability results were driven by increasing traction on our transformation initiatives as well as continued strong demand for home improvement projects and consumers’ growing comfort allowing contractors into their homes as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“As we look ahead, we are encouraged by the increasing traction we are gaining on our transformation that will position us well for sustainable long-term growth,” Tyson continued. “In the near term, we are cautious about the potential impact of continued supply chain disruptions as well as related higher transportation and materials costs. To minimize the impact of these headwinds, we are keenly focused on rebuilding inventory to drive sales, executing our pricing and promotion strategies to optimize gross margin, and maintaining disciplined expense management as we continue to invest in our growth strategies.”

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Net sales of $301.4 million increased 30.9% compared to the same period last year and 4.4% compared to the second quarter of 2019, driven primarily by strong pro customer and services sales.
  • Total comparable store sales increased 31.3% versus the same period last year, and increased 10.0% on a two-year stack basis (which does not reflect the impact of store closures and openings between periods).
  • Gross margin of 37.4% decreased 90 basis points as a percent of sales compared to the same period last year and increased 190 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019; Adjusted gross margin1 of 37.4% decreased 90 basis points as a percent of sales compared to the same period last year, primarily reflecting higher tariffs, materials and inbound transportation costs that were partially offset by pricing, promotion and sourcing strategies; and increased 220 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019, primarily reflecting the Company’s pricing, promotion and sourcing strategies that more than mitigated higher tariffs.
  • SG&A as a percent of sales of 31.9% leveraged 380 basis points compared to the second quarter of last year and 410 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019; Adjusted SG&A1 as a percent of sales of 31.8% leveraged 370 basis points compared to the second quarter of last year on higher net sales, and leveraged 220 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019 on more efficient marketing spend and disciplined expense management.
  • Operating margin of 5.5% increased 290 basis points compared to the second quarter of last year and 600 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019; Adjusted operating margin1 of 5.6% increased 280 basis points compared to the second quarter of last year, and 440 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019.
  • Diluted EPS of $0.41 increased $0.32 compared to the second quarter of last year and increased $0.51 compared to the second quarter of 2019; Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share1 of $0.41 increased $0.31 compared to the second quarter of last year and increased $0.38 compared to the second quarter of 2019.
  • During the second quarter, the Company repaid all $101.0 million of outstanding debt.
  • During the second quarter, the Company opened four new stores, bringing total stores to 416 as of June 30, 2021.

Cash Flow & Liquidity

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had liquidity of $241.0 million, consisting of excess availability under its Credit Agreement of $128.6 million, and cash and cash equivalents of $112.4 million. This represents an increase in liquidity of $55.0 million from June 30, 2020.

During the first six months of 2021, the Company generated $53.3 million of cash flows from operating activities, primarily due to positive changes in working capital, reflecting continued inventory supply constraints, as well as $22.6 million of net income.

2021 Outlook

For the foreseeable future, there remains uncertainty in the macro environment related to consumer spending as well as global supply chain disruptions, and the potential impact of the COVID-19 Delta variant. As a result, while we are pleased with the traction we are gaining on our transformation initiatives, we are not providing financial guidance at this time. However, we believe it is prudent to plan for slowing comparable sales on a two-year stack basis for the second half of 2021 compared to the 10% two-year stack comparable sales we delivered in the second quarter.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release includes statements of the Company’s expectations, intentions, plans and beliefs that constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meanings of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which may be identified by words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “thinks,” “estimates,” “seeks,” “predicts,” “could,” “projects,” “potential” and other similar terms and phrases, are based on the beliefs of the Company’s management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company’s management as of the date of such statements. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the Company’s control.

The Company specifically disclaims any obligation to update these statements, which speak only as of the dates on which such statements are made, except as may be required under the federal securities laws. For a discussion of the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements, see the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, and the Company’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Such filings are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov and the Company’s Investor Relations website at https://investors.llflooring.com/.

Non-GAAP and Other Information

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: (i) Adjusted Gross Profit; (ii) Adjusted Gross Margin; (iii) Adjusted SG&A; (iv) Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of net sales; (v) Adjusted Operating Income; (vi) Adjusted Operating Margin; (vii) Adjusted Other (Income) Expense; (viii) Adjusted Earnings; and (ix) Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share. These non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. These supplemental measures may vary from, and may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures are presented because management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance and, in certain cases, to determine incentive compensation. Therefore, the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors. The presented non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that management does not believe reflect the Company’s core operating performance, which include regulatory and legal settlements and associated legal and operating costs, changes in antidumping and countervailing duties, as such items are outside the control of the Company or are due to their inherent unusual, non-operating, unpredictable, non-recurring or non-cash nature.
