 Camping World Holdings, Inc. Reports Updated Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017 Results
   Tuesday, March 13, 2018 4:10:00 PM ET

LINCOLNSHIRE, IL--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Camping World Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CWH) (“Camping World,” “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) today updated its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.

On February 27, 2018, the Company initially reported earnings for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2017. In early March 2018, after the Company had released earnings for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, the Company determined that a portion of the outside basis deferred tax asset related to its acquisition of the direct interests in CWGS Enterprises, LLC through newly issued LLC units is not expected to be realized in the foreseeable future, and, as a result, the Company should have established a valuation allowance on a portion of the outside basis deferred tax asset.



Accordingly, the Company restated its consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2016 to reflect a valuation allowance against the portion of the deferred tax asset related to the outside basis difference of $102.7 million. Following the establishment of the valuation allowance as of December 31, 2016, the Company recognizes subsequent changes to the valuation allowance through the provision for income taxes or equity, as applicable. The effect of the correction of the foregoing error decreased Deferred Tax Assets, Net and Additional Paid-in Capital on the Company’s balance sheet.

The result of the restatement improved fourth quarter net income (loss) by $47.0 million through a corresponding $47.0 million reduction in income tax expense. Accordingly, the fourth quarter 2017 net loss of $52.5 million was reduced to a net loss of $5.5 million; improving diluted earnings per share to ($0.52) from ($1.87).

This non-cash adjustment had no impact on revenue, income from operations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share. The updated earnings release and restatement details are below.

  • Total revenue increased 32.9% to $889.0 million;
  • Gross profit increased 37.1% to $266.6 million and gross margin increased 92 basis points to 30.0%;
  • Income from operations increased 37.9% to $44.3 million and operating margin increased 18 basis points to 5.0%;
  • Net loss was $5.5 million and included a $99.8 million tax receivable liability adjustment to other income and $118.4 million of income taxes related to changes stemming from the U.S. tax reform enacted in December 2017. Net loss margin was 0.6% and diluted earnings per share(2) was ($0.52);
  • Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income(1) increased 112.8% to $22.0 million and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share(1) increased 100.0% to $0.25; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 76.0% to $65.3 million and Adjusted EBITDA Margin(1) increased 180 basis points to 7.3%.

  • Total revenue increased 21.8% to $4.3 billion;
  • Gross profit increased 25.1% to $1.2 billion and gross margin increased 77 basis points to 29.1%;
  • Income from operations increased 29.4% to $361.4 million, and operating margin increased 50 basis points to 8.4%,
  • Net income was $233.0 million and included a $99.7 million tax receivable liability adjustment to other income, and $118.4 million of income taxes related to changes stemming from the U.S. tax reform enacted in December 2017. Net income margin was 5.4% and diluted earnings per share(2) was $1.07;
  • Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income(1) increased 51.0% to $198.7 million and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share(1) increased 45.9% to $2.29; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 38.2% to $399.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA Margin(1) increased 111 basis points to 9.3%.

(1) Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income, Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP measures. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, see the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section later in this press release.
(2) Diluted earnings per share of Class A common stock is applicable only for periods after the Company’s initial public offering. For a discussion of earnings per share see the “Earnings Per Share” section later in this press release.

This press release presents historical results, for the periods presented, of the Company and its subsidiaries, that are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), unless noted as a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) and related reorganization transactions (“Reorganization Transactions”) that occurred on October 6, 2016 resulted in the Company as the sole managing member of CWGS Enterprises, LLC (“CWGS, LLC”), with sole voting power in and control of the management of CWGS, LLC. Despite its position as sole managing member of CWGS, LLC, the Company has a minority economic interest in CWGS, LLC. As of December 31, 2017, the Company owned 41.5% of CWGS, LLC. Accordingly, the Company consolidates the financial results of CWGS, LLC and reports a non-controlling interest in its consolidated financial statements. As the Reorganization Transactions are considered transactions among entities under common control, the financial statements for the periods prior to the IPO and related Reorganization Transactions have been adjusted to combine the previously separate entities for presentation purposes. Unless otherwise indicated, all financial comparisons in this press release compare our financial results from the 2017 fourth quarter and full year to our financial results from the 2016 fourth quarter and full year, respectively.

Units and Average Selling Prices

The total number of recreational vehicle units sold increased 36.1% to 18,117 units from 13,316 units and the average selling price of a unit sold decreased 4.6% to $33,031 from the fourth quarter of 2016. New vehicle units sold increased 50.4% to 12,013 units and the average selling price of a new vehicle decreased 8.4% to $38,163. Used vehicle units sold increased 14.5% to 6,104 units and the average selling price of a used vehicle decreased 4.9% to $22,930.

Revenue

Total revenue increased 32.9% to $889.0 million from $668.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Consumer Services and Plans revenue increased 4.5% to $51.1 million and Retail revenue increased 35.1% to $837.9 million. In the Retail segment, new vehicle revenue increased 37.8% to $458.5 million, used vehicle revenue increased 9.0% to $140.0 million, parts, services and other revenue increased 48.4% to $174.7 million and finance and insurance revenue increased 57.3% to $64.8 million. Included in the parts, services and other revenue was $38.2 million in sales from the Outdoor and Active Sports Retail businesses acquired in 2017, including Gander Outdoors, Overton’s, TheHouse.com , Uncle Dan’s and W82. Finance and insurance, net revenue as a percentage of total new and used vehicle revenue increased to 10.8% from 8.9% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Same store sales for the base of 115 retail locations that were open both at the end of the corresponding period and at the beginning of the preceding fiscal year increased 11.9% to $655.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. The increase in same store sales was primarily driven by a 18.5% increase in new vehicle same store sales, a 34.0% increase in finance and insurance same store sales, and a 3.0% increase in parts, services and other same store sales, partially offset by a 5.0% decrease in used vehicle same store sales.

The Company operated a total of 140 Camping World retail locations, two Overton’s locations, two TheHouse.com locations, two Gander Outdoors locations, two W82 locations, and five Uncle Dan’s locations as of December 31, 2017, compared to 122 Camping World retail locations at December 31, 2016.

Gross Profit

Total gross profit increased 37.1% to $266.6 million, or 30.0% of total revenue, from $194.5 million, or 29.1% of total revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2016. On a segment basis, Consumer Services and Plans gross profit increased 8.2% to $31.1 million, or 60.8% of segment revenue, from $28.7 million, or 58.7% of segment revenue, and Retail gross profit increased 42.1% to $235.5 million, or 28.1% of segment revenue, from $165.8 million, or 26.7% of segment revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2016. A 211 basis point improvement in Consumer Services and Plans gross margin was primarily driven by increased file size of our membership clubs combined with reduced club marketing expense, and increased contracts in force in our roadside assistance programs combined with reduced program costs. A 137 basis point increase in Retail gross margin was primarily driven by an increase in the finance and insurance, net revenue as a percentage of total new and used vehicle revenue to 10.8% of vehicle sales from 8.9% of vehicle sales in the fourth quarter of 2016, and the 50.4% increase in new units sold.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses increased 36.9% to $222.3 million from $162.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased 37.5% to $213.1 million from $154.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily driven by the additional expenses associated with the incremental 26 greenfield and acquired retail locations opened during 2016 and 2017, two Overton’s locations, two TheHouse.com locations, two Gander Outdoors locations and two W82 locations operated during the fourth quarter of 2017 versus the prior year period, $17.7 million of pre-opening and payroll costs associated with the Gander Mountain acquisition, and $0.1 million of transaction expenses associated with the acquisition into new or complimentary markets. As a percentage of total gross profit, SG&A expenses increased 25 basis points to 79.9% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. Depreciation and amortization expense increased 33.2% to $8.7 million primarily due to the addition of acquired and greenfield locations, and acquired businesses.

Floor Plan Interest & Other Interest Expenses

Floor plan interest expense increased to $8.4 million from $4.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily attributable to higher inventory from new dealership locations and locations expecting higher unit sales, as well as a 84 basis point increase in the average floor plan borrowing rate. Other interest expense increased to $12.0 million from $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in average debt outstanding partially offset by an 86 basis point decrease in the average interest rate.

Net Loss, Net loss margin, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income(1), Diluted Earnings Per Share, and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings Per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share(1)

Net loss was $5.5 million, reflecting a $99.8 million tax receivable liability adjustment to other income and $118.4 million of income tax expense related to changes stemming from the U.S. tax reform enacted in December 2017, among other items. Net loss margin was (0.6%), and diluted earnings per share was ($0.52).

Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income(1) increased 112.8% to $22.0 million from $10.3 million and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share(1) increased 100.0% to $0.25 from $0.12 in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin(1)

Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 76.0% to $65.3 million and Adjusted EBITDA Margin(1) increased 180 basis points to 7.3% from 5.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

The Company's working capital and cash and cash equivalents balance at December 31, 2017 were $478.7 million and $224.2 million, respectively, compared to $257.7 million and $114.2 million, respectively, at December 31, 2016. At the end of the fourth quarter 2017, the Company had $3.2 million of letters of credit outstanding under its $35 million revolving credit facility, $916.9 million of term loan principal outstanding under its senior secured credit facilities and $974.0 million of floor plan notes payable outstanding under its floor plan financing facility. Inventory at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 56.9% to $1,415.9 million compared to $902.7 million at December 31, 2016. Inventory related to the Outdoor and Active Sports Retail businesses, including Gander Outdoors, Overton’s, TheHouse.com , Uncle Dan’s and W82, was approximately $80.4 million at December 31, 2017. On an estimated number of days of inventory basis, days of inventory on hand increased by 16.1% which was driven by our strategic decision to raise inventory levels to increase market share in certain markets.

Following the purchase of newly-issued common units from CWGS, LLC in connection with the IPO and the May 2017 public offering, the Company’s deferred tax balances have reflected the differences in the book and tax basis of its investment in CWGS, LLC (i.e., outside basis) (the “Outside Basis Deferred Tax Asset”). In early March 2018, after the Company had released earnings for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company determined that a portion of the Outside Basis Deferred Tax Asset related to its acquisition of the direct interest in CWGS, LLC through newly issued LLC units is not expected to be realized unless the Company were to dispose of its investment in CWGS, LLC, which the Company has no current plan to do. Accordingly, the Company has determined that it should have established a valuation allowance of $102.7 million against this portion of its Outside Basis Deferred Tax Asset that was recorded through equity as of December 31, 2016. Following the establishment of the valuation allowance as of December 31, 2016, the Company recognizes subsequent changes to the valuation allowance through the provision for income taxes or equity, as applicable.

As a result of the above, the following table reflects changes to the Company’s Statements of Income for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017 from the previously reported unaudited financial results:

Earnings Per Share

On October 6, 2016, the limited liability company agreement of CWGS, LLC was amended and restated to, among other things, (i) provide for a new single class of common membership interests, the common units of CWGS, LLC, and (ii) exchange all of the then-existing membership interests in CWGS, LLC for common units of CWGS, LLC (collectively, the “Recapitalization”). This Recapitalization changed the relative membership rights of the owners of membership interests in CWGS, LLC such that retroactive application of the Recapitalization to periods prior to the IPO for the purposes of calculating earnings per share would not be appropriate.

Prior to the IPO, the CWGS, LLC membership structure included membership units, preferred units, and profits units. The Company analyzed the calculation of earnings per unit for periods prior to the IPO using the two-class method and determined that it resulted in a value that would not be meaningful to the users of the consolidated financial statements. Therefore, earnings per share information has not been presented for periods prior to the IPO on October 6, 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share (collectively the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"). We believe that these Non-GAAP Financial Measures, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to the key metrics we use in our financial and operational decision-making. These non-GAAP measures are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the Company’s industry. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by any items adjusted for in these non-GAAP measures. In evaluating these non-GAAP measures, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of those adjusted in this presentation. The Non-GAAP Financial Measures that we use are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define “EBITDA” as net income before other interest expense (excluding floor plan interest expense), provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA further adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include, among other things, loss and expense on debt restructure, loss (gain) on sale of assets, monitoring fees, equity-based compensation, Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment, acquisition related transaction expenses and pre-opening costs, and other unusual or one-time items. We define “Adjusted EBITDA Margin” as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by our competitors, because not all companies and analysts calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the same manner. We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Management believes that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by including these Non-GAAP Financial Measures as a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations.

The following tables reconcile EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which are net income, net income and net income margin, respectively:

Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings Per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share

We define “Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income” as net income attributable to CWH adjusted for the reallocation of income attributable to non-controlling interests from the assumed exchange of all outstanding common units in CWGS, LLC (or the common unit equivalent of membership interests in CWGS, LLC for periods prior to the IPO) for newly-issued shares of Class A common stock of CWH and further adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include, among other things, reallocation of net income attributable to non-controlling interests, loss and expense on debt restructure, loss (gain) on sale of assets, monitoring fees, equity-based compensation, Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment, acquisition related transaction expenses and pre-opening costs, other unusual or one-time items, and the income tax expense effect of (i) these adjustments and (ii) the pass-through entity taxable income as if the parent company was a subchapter C corporation in periods prior to the IPO. We define “Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings Per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share” as Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income divided by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding, assuming (i) the full exchange of all outstanding common units in CWGS, LLC (or the common unit equivalent of membership interests in CWGS, LLC for periods prior to the IPO) for newly-issued shares of Class A common stock of CWH, (ii) the Class A common stock issued in connection with the IPO was outstanding as of January 1 of each year presented, and (iii) the dilutive effect of stock options and restricted stock units, if any. We present Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings Per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and we believe that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by including these Non-GAAP financial measures as a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations.

Uses and Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management and our board of directors use the Non-GAAP financial measures:

  • as a measurement of operating performance because they assist us in comparing the operating performance of our business on a consistent basis, as they remove the impact of items not directly resulting from our core operations;
  • for planning purposes, including the preparation of our internal annual operating budget and financial projections;
  • to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of our operational strategies; and
  • to evaluate our capacity to fund capital expenditures and expand our business.

By providing these Non-GAAP financial measures, together with reconciliations, we believe we are enhancing investors’ understanding of our business and our results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well we are executing our strategic initiatives. In addition, our existing senior secured credit facilities use EBITDA to measure our compliance with covenants such as consolidated leverage ratio. The Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to, or a substitute for net income or other financial statement data presented in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this press release as indicators of financial performance. Some of the limitations are:

  • such measures do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • such measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • some of such measures do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • some of such measures do not reflect our tax expense or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in our industry may calculate such measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Due to these limitations, the Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using these Non-GAAP financial measures only supplementally. As noted in the tables above, certain of the Non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments for reallocation of net income attributable to non-controlling interests, loss and expense on debt restructure, loss (gain) on sale of assets, monitoring fees, equity-based compensation, Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment, acquisition related transaction expenses and pre-opening costs, other unusual or one-time items, and the income tax expense effect described above, as applicable. It is reasonable to expect that certain of these items will occur in future periods. However, we believe these adjustments are appropriate because the amounts recognized can vary significantly from period to period, do not directly relate to the ongoing operations of our business and complicate comparisons of our internal operating results and operating results of other companies over time. In addition, these certain Non-GAAP financial measures adjust for other items that we do not expect to regularly record in periods after the IPO, including monitoring fees. Each of the normal recurring adjustments and other adjustments described in this paragraph and in the reconciliation tables above help management with a measure of our core operating performance over time by removing items that are not related to day to day operations.
