Item2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On September 24, 2020, Rite Aid Corporation (the “Company”) reported its financial position and results of operations as of and for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended August 29, 2020. The press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures, “Adjusted EBITDA,” “Adjusted Net Income (Loss)” and “Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share.” The Company uses these non-GAAP measures in assessing its performance in addition to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share to net income (loss) and net income (loss) per diluted share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, are included in the press release, which is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.

 

The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA serves as an appropriate measure in evaluating the performance of its business and helps its investors better compare the Company’s operating performance with its competitors. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA 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, gains or losses on debt retirements and modifications, the Walgreens Boot Alliance, Inc. (“WBA”) merger termination fee, and other items (including stock-based compensation expense, merger and acquisition-related costs, a non-recurring litigation settlement, severance, restructuring-related costs and costs related to facility closures and gain or loss on sale of assets). The Company references this non-GAAP financial measure frequently in its decision-making because it provides supplemental information that facilitates internal comparisons to historical periods and external comparisons to competitors. In addition, incentive compensation is based in part on Adjusted EBITDA and the Company bases certain of its forward-looking estimates and budgets on Adjusted EBITDA.

 

The Company defines Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as net income (loss) excluding amortization expense, merger and acquisition-related costs, a non-recurring litigation settlement, gains or losses on debt retirements and modifications, LIFO adjustments, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, restructuring-related costs and the WBA merger termination fee. The Company calculates Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share using the Company’s above-referenced definition of Adjusted Net Income (Loss). The Company believes Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share serve as appropriate measures to be used in evaluating the performance of its business and help its investors better compare the Company’s operating performance over multiple periods.

 

In addition, 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.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share should not be considered in isolation from, and are not intended to represent alternative measures of, operating results or of cash flows from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements reported by other companies or similar terms in the Company’s debt facilities.

  

  

 

 

In addition, a copy of the Company’s Earnings Release Supplement for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 is being furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Form 8-K.

 

The information (including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2) being furnished pursuant to this “Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition” shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, or the Exchange Act regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
