Gary Friedman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, provided the following commentary:

“2015 was another year of record performance for RH. We reported record net revenues of $2.1 billion, up 13% on top of a 20% increase a year ago, and up nearly $1 billion from our initial public offering in 2012. Our adjusted operating income grew 18% to $205 million, on top of a 43% increase last year. Adjusted operating margins reached a record 9.7%, among the highest in our industry, and up from 5.8% at the time of our IPO just three years ago.

While our fourth quarter demand sales/written orders were up a strong 21%, on top of up 26% last year, our delivered net revenues increased only 11% in the quarter, on top of up 24% last year, representing a shortfall to our plan. There are three key factors that had a negative effect on our fourth quarter results. First, while the initial response to RH Modern has been outstanding, we are experiencing shipping delays as certain vendors are struggling to ramp up production of this new product line. We expect these vendors to be substantially caught up by the end of the first half. Second, we continue to see underperformance in markets affected by energy, oil, or currency fluctuations – specifically, Texas, Miami, and Canada – representing a drag of 4 points to total Company revenues in the second half, which has weakened to a 5 point drag quarter to date in Q1. Third, our attempts to drive incremental revenue through increased promotional activity in the fourth quarter were less successful than in prior periods, signaling a further pullback by the high-end consumer.

While there is certainly a fair amount of bad news in the quarter, we believe the good news greatly outweighs the bad when you put it into the context of our long-term growth strategy. Despite the headwinds, our two key value driving strategies - the expansion of our product offer and the transformation of our real estate - are working exceptionally well. The strong response to RH Modern, both in retail and direct, indicates this can quickly become a billion dollar plus brand. All of our new next generation Design Galleries are exceeding plan - with the one-year anniversary of Atlanta, plus the openings of Chicago, Denver, and Tampa, we continue to demonstrate that our strategy to transform our 7,500 square foot legacy stores into 45,000 to 60,000 square foot next generation Design Galleries will drive meaningful growth over the next 7 to 10 years.

We are clearly operating in different market conditions than a year ago, and believe it requires us to adjust our strategies to optimize performance in the short term, while positioning the Company for long-term value creation. Our key priorities for fiscal 2016 are centered on the optimization of our core business by improving in-stocks for RH Modern and our core newness launching this Fall, elevating our end-to-end customer experience, optimizing our inventory and working capital, being opportunistic with real estate to achieve improved deal terms, and changing the promotional cadence via the launch of the RH Grey Card. We believe what should change in this environment, is the pace at which we deploy our investments, with a focus on optimizing returns and cash flow generation in fiscal 2016.

At RH, our most significant transformative moves have occurred during periods of uncertainty and believe we will exit this year with a better brand and business than when we entered. Brands and businesses, like people, become great, not because they do not have failures or fears, but because they continue on despite them. We remain confident in our long term goal of reaching $4 billion to $5 billion in North American revenues, mid-teens operating margins, significant free cash flow and industry-leading return on invested capital.”

Outlook

The Company’s results for fiscal 2016 will be impacted by certain investments related to its initiative to elevate the customer experience, largely related to customer accommodations due to RH Modern production delays, which are expected to be an approximate $15 million reduction in net revenues and $0.22 reduction in adjusted diluted EPS in fiscal 2016.

The Company is providing the following outlook for the first quarter fiscal 2016 (including an approximate $8 million - $10 million net revenue and $0.12 to $0.15 adjusted diluted EPS reduction per the above mentioned factors):

  • Net revenues in the range of $452 million to $456 million
  • Adjusted net income in the range of $1.6 million to $2.5 million
  • Adjusted diluted EPS in the range of $0.04 to $0.06
  • Income tax rate of approximately 39%
  • Diluted shares outstanding of approximately 41 million

The Company is providing the following outlook for fiscal year 2016 (including an approximate $15 million net revenue and $0.22 adjusted diluted EPS reduction per the above mentioned factors):

  • Net revenues growth in the low to mid-single digit range
  • Adjusted diluted EPS is expected to be roughly flat to slightly down versus the prior year
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $175 million to $200 million
  • Free cash flow positive

Note: The Company’s adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS guidance does not include certain charges and costs, such as for unusual items. The adjustments to net income and diluted EPS in future periods are generally expected to be similar to the kinds of charges and costs excluded from adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS in prior quarters.

**Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted EPS (collectively, “non-GAAP financial measures”). We compute these measures by adjusting the applicable GAAP measures to remove the impact of certain recurring and non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments. 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. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that they 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 key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in this press release may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures, including similarly titled measures, used by other companies.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures tables in this press release. These accompanying tables include details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. With respect to the Company’s non-GAAP guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and the fiscal year ending January 28, 2017, the Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP because it does not provide specific guidance for the various non-recurring and recurring reconciling items. For previous periods, such non-recurring and recurring reconciling items included non-cash and other one-time compensation expense, one-time income tax expense, and legal claim related expenses, among others. Certain items that impact these measures have not yet occurred, are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and as a result, reconciliation of the non-GAAP guidance measures to GAAP is not available without unreasonable effort.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release and the accompanying video presentation contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws including statements related to our future financial guidance, including for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and the fiscal year ended January 28, 2017, including revenues, net income, EPS and capital expenditures, and our expectations concerning the financial impact in fiscal 2016 of the investments related to customer accommodations, and higher cancellation rates due to RH Modern production delays, and our overall initiative to elevate the customer experience; the Company’s ability to turn orders into revenues in the first half of fiscal 2016; statements regarding future product demand; statements regarding future sourcebook mailings; statements regarding the expected benefits to the Company of the RH Grey Card; statements regarding the Company’s ability to effectively work with its vendors and such vendors’ ability to increase production; statements regarding the Company’s expectations for RH Modern and RH Teen as brands, including that RH Modern can become a billion dollar plus brand; statements regarding future inventory levels; statements regarding future store openings; and statements regarding the Company’s confidence in the long-term opportunity to reach $4 to $5 billion in North American sales and mid-teens operating margins, significant free cash flow and industry-leading return on invested capital; the Company’s confidence in its strategies of expanding product assortment and transformation of its real estate, and any statements or assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

These statements may include words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “plan,” “intend,” “believe,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “likely” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future events. We cannot assure you that future developments affecting us will be those that we have anticipated. Important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations include, among others, our ability to retain key personnel; successful implementation of our growth strategy; strikes and work stoppages affecting port workers and other industries involved in the transportation of our products; general economic conditions and the impact on consumer confidence and spending; changes in customer demand for our products; factors affecting our outstanding convertible senior notes; our ability to anticipate consumer preferences and buying trends, and maintaining our brand promise to customers; changes in consumer spending based on weather and other conditions beyond our control; risks related to the number of new business initiatives we are undertaking; our ability to obtain our products in a timely fashion or in the quantities required; our ability to employ reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect personal information that we collect; our ability to support our growth with appropriate information technology systems; risks related to “conflict minerals” compliance and its impact on sourcing, if any, as well as those risks and uncertainties disclosed under the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Restoration Hardware Holdings’ most recent Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and similar disclosures in subsequent reports filed with the SEC, which are available on our investor relations website at ir.restorationhardware.com and on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.

[a]     Adjustments for the three months ended January 30, 2016 represent the estimated cumulative impact of coupons redeemed in connection with a legal claim alleging that the Company violated California’s Song-Beverly Credit Card Act of 1971 by requesting and recording ZIP codes from customers paying with credit cards. Adjustment for the three months ended January 31, 2015 includes a reversal of estimated expenses associated with the legal claim mentioned above based on a revision of estimated class member response.
[b] Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability and equity components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, in accounting for GAAP purposes for the $350 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June 2014 (the “2019 Notes”) and for the $300 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June and July 2015 (the “2020 Notes”), we separated the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes into liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components and we are amortizing as debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the equity components as interest expense on the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes over their respective terms. The equity components represent the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes and the fair value of the liability components of the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes, respectively. Amounts are presented net of interest capitalized for capital projects of $0.8 million and $0.2 million during the three months ended January 30, 2016 and January 31, 2015, respectively.
[c] The adjustment for the three months ended January 30, 2016 represents the tax effect of the adjusted items based on our effective tax rate of 40.1%. The three months ended January 31, 2015 includes an adjustment to calculate income tax expense at a pro forma 40% effective tax rate.
[d] Adjusted net income is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted net income as net income, adjusted for the impact of certain non-recurring and other items that we do not consider representative of our ongoing operating performance. Adjusted net income is included in this press release because management believes that adjusted net income provides meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitates a meaningful evaluation of operating results on a comparable basis with historical results. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.

[a]     Adjustments represent charges incurred or the estimated cumulative impact of coupons redeemed in connection with a legal claim alleging that the Company violated California’s Song-Beverly Credit Card Act of 1971 by requesting and recording ZIP codes from customers paying with credit cards.
[b] Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability and equity components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, in accounting for GAAP purposes for the 2019 Notes and for the 2020 Notes, we separated the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes into liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components and we are amortizing as debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the equity components as interest expense on the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes over their respective terms. The equity components represent the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes and the fair value of the liability components of the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes, respectively. Amounts are presented net of interest capitalized for capital projects of $2.3 million and $1.1 million during the twelve months ended January 30, 2016 and January 31, 2015, respectively.
[c] The adjustment for the twelve months ended January 30, 2016 represents the tax effect of the adjusted items based on our effective tax rate of 39.2%. The twelve months ended January 31, 2015 includes an adjustment to calculate income tax expense at a pro forma 40% effective tax rate.
[d] Adjusted net income is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted net income as net income, adjusted for the impact of certain non-recurring and other items that we do not consider representative of our ongoing operating performance. Adjusted net income is included in this press release because management believes that adjusted net income provides meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitates a meaningful evaluation of operating results on a comparable basis with historical results. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.
