“Our fiscal year ended with better-than-expected performance, reflecting excellent, enterprise-wide execution against our fourth quarter plans as well as stronger consumer demand and the strength of Ulta Beauty’s differentiated model,” said Dave Kimbell, chief executive officer. “I want to express my sincere appreciation to all Ulta Beauty associates who continue to provide exceptional care and service to our guests and to each other, while successfully navigating pandemic-related challenges and delivering strong results for all our stakeholders.”

For the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2021

  • Net sales increased 24.1% to $2.7 billion compared to $2.2 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 due to the favorable impact from stronger consumer confidence and fewer COVID-19 restrictions compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Comparable sales (sales for stores open at least 14 months, including stores temporarily closed due to COVID-19, and e-commerce sales) increased 21.4% compared to a decrease of 4.8% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, driven by a 10.4% increase in transactions and a 9.9% increase in average ticket. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, comparable sales increased 15.4%.
  • Gross profit increased to $1.0 billion compared to $771.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased to 37.6% compared to 35.1% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to leverage of fixed costs, favorable channel mix shifts, and improvement in merchandise margins.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased to $650.0 million compared to $514.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses increased to 23.8% compared to 23.4% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to higher incentive compensation and store payroll and benefits, partially offset by leverage in marketing expenses due to higher sales.
  • There were no impairment, restructuring and other costs in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to $30.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Pre-opening expenses decreased to $1.7 million compared to $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Operating income increased to $375.6 million, or 13.8% of net sales, compared to $224.3 million, or 10.2% of net sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was $254.7 million, or 11.6% of net sales.
  • The company’s tax rate decreased to 22.9% compared to 23.4% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. The lower effective tax rate is primarily due to a benefit from the income tax accounting for share-based compensation and state tax credits, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Net income increased to $289.4 million compared to $171.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was $193.4 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased to $5.41, including a $0.05 benefit due to income tax accounting for stock-based compensation, compared to $3.03, including a $0.02 benefit due to income tax accounting for stock-based compensation in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was $3.41.

For the Full Year of Fiscal 2021

  • Net sales increased 40.3% to $8.6 billion compared to $6.2 billion in fiscal 2020, primarily due to the favorable impact from improving consumer confidence, government stimulus payments, and the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, as compared to fiscal 2020.
  • Comparable sales increased 37.9% compared to a decrease of 17.9% in fiscal 2020, driven by a 30.0% increase in transactions and a 6.0% increase in average ticket. Compared to fiscal 2019, comparable sales increased 12.6%.
  • Gross profit increased to $3.4 billion compared to $1.9 billion in fiscal 2020. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased to 39.0% compared to 31.7% in fiscal 2020, primarily due to leverage of fixed costs, improvement in merchandise margins, favorable channel mix shifts, and leverage of salon expenses.
  • SG&A expenses increased to $2.1 billion compared to $1.6 billion in fiscal 2020. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses decreased to 23.9% compared to 25.7% in fiscal 2020, due to leverage of corporate overhead, store payroll and benefits, and store expenses due to higher sales, partially offset by less employee retention credits received under the CARES Act and higher incentive compensation.
  • There were no impairment, restructuring and other costs recognized in fiscal 2021, compared to $114.3 million in fiscal 2020.
  • Pre-opening expenses decreased to $9.5 million compared to $15.0 million in fiscal 2020.
  • Operating income increased to $1.3 billion, or 15.0% of net sales, compared to $236.8 million, or 3.9% of net sales, in fiscal 2020. Adjusted operating income for fiscal 2020 was $352.5 million, or 5.7% of net sales.
  • The company’s tax rate was 23.9%, flat as compared to fiscal 2020.
  • Net income increased to $985.8 million compared to $175.8 million in fiscal 2020. Adjusted net income for fiscal 2020 was $264.0 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased to $17.98 including a $0.13 benefit due to income tax accounting for stock-based compensation, compared to $3.11, including a $0.02 benefit due to income tax accounting for stock-based compensation in fiscal 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for fiscal 2020 was $4.66.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents at the end of fiscal 2021 were $431.6 million.

Merchandise inventories, net at the end of fiscal 2021 totaled $1.50 billion compared to $1.17 billion at the end of fiscal 2020. The $331.0 million increase in inventory was primarily due to the addition of 44 net new stores opened since January 30, 2021, inventory to support new brand launches, and the acceleration of inventory receipts to support expected demand and mitigate anticipated global supply chain disruptions.

Share Repurchase Program

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company repurchased 1.9 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $759.8 million. During fiscal 2021, the Company repurchased 4.2 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $1.5 billion. As of January 29, 2022, the amount remaining available under the $1.6 billion share repurchase program announced in March 2020 was nominal.

Since 2014, Ulta Beauty has purchased 14.0 million shares of its common stock for $3.9 billion, while continuing to make strategic growth investments.

On March 7, 2022, the Company’s board of directors approved a new share repurchase authorization of $2.0 billion, which replaces the prior authorization implemented in March 2020. Under the new program, as under the previous program, the Company may repurchase outstanding shares of the Company's common stock from time to time through accelerated share repurchases, privately negotiated transactions, or open market transactions, including under plans complying with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The new program has no expiration date but may be terminated by the Board at any time.

Store Update

Real estate activity in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 included six new stores located in Carrolton, GA; Hesperia, CA; Olive Branch, MS; Rocky Mount, NC; Rome, GA; and Tacoma, WA. In addition, the Company relocated three stores and remodeled one store. During fiscal 2021, the Company opened 48 new stores, relocated seven stores, remodeled nine stores, and closed four stores.

At the end of fiscal 2021, the Company operated 1,308 stores totaling 13.8 million square feet.

Fiscal 2022 Outlook

“The Beauty category is healthy and growing, and we are confident the recovery that began in 2021 will continue, as consumers maintain their self-care routines, become more resilient to COVID surges, and engage in more leisure and social activities. Our outlook for fiscal 2022 reflects our expectations for Beauty growth as well as the challenge of lapping exceptional performance in fiscal 2021, ongoing wage and supply chain cost pressures, and investments in new capabilities to support future growth,” continued Kimbell. “Despite the expected challenges, I am more excited than ever about the opportunity for Ulta Beauty to grow and continue to lead the Beauty category. We are emerging from the pandemic as a stronger, healthier business, we operate in an attractive and growing category, and we have an exceptional team in place to execute our ambitious plans and deliver for our guests, associates and shareholders.”
