Fiscal Year Highlights

  • Net revenues increased 20% on top of a 30% increase last year
  • Comparable brand revenues increased 20% on top of a 31% increase last year
  • Adjusted operating margin increased 150 basis points to 9.3%; GAAP operating margin of 8.9% compared to 3.5% for the same period last year

Gary Friedman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “RH continues to outperform the home furnishings industry by a wide margin. Fiscal 2014 marks RH’s fifth consecutive year of net revenue growth in excess of 20% - averaging approximately 25% net revenue growth during that period. After four years of at least 25% comparable brand revenue growth, RH achieved 20% comparable brand revenue growth in fiscal 2014, a milestone unseen amongst our home furnishings peers. Fiscal 2014 adjusted operating margins increased to 9.3% from 7.8%, and adjusted net income increased 41% - reflecting quality earnings growth that was primarily driven by a 110 basis point expansion in gross margin and further demonstrating the power of our multi-channel business model.”

Mr. Friedman added, “We are very pleased with the initial trends and performance of our first next generation Design Gallery, RH Atlanta - the Gallery at the Estate in Buckhead. RH Atlanta is the first Gallery that showcases all of our current concepts, RH Interiors, RH Small Spaces, RH Baby & Child, and RH Outdoor. Early indications are strong and we expect Atlanta's performance to accelerate further as we continue to add future new businesses, such as RH Kitchen, and two new yet to be disclosed concepts that we will announce later this year.”

Mr. Friedman continued, "While we have been negatively impacted by the West Coast port disruption in the first quarter of this year, we believe at this point, most of the revenue and earnings not recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 should shift forward and have a positive effect on the second quarter."

Mr. Friedman concluded, “Fiscal 2015 is a bridge year for RH - with revenue growth targeted in the mid-teens, and then reaccelerating to our long term goal of 20% as our real estate transformation steps up in fiscal 2016. While we are guiding 2015 revenues below our long term target, we are guiding adjusted net income growth to be in the range of 28% to 34% - above our long term target of mid to high twenties annually. We expect operating margins of 10.3% to 10.6% this year due to continued gross margin expansion and enhanced productivity from our Source Books. Reaching both the $2 billion of net revenues and 10% operating margin milestones this early in our transformation gives us great confidence in achieving our long term goal of $4 billion to $5 billion in North American sales, mid-teens operating margins, and significant free cash flow. I would like to thank all of our people and partners from around the world for their passion and commitment to our cause, as we continue on our path of building one of the most innovative and admired brands in the world."

*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 2015 and the fiscal year ending January 30, 2016, 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 (benefit), 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.

[c] Comparable brand revenue growth includes retail comparable store sales, including Baby & Child Galleries, and direct net revenues. Comparable brand revenue growth excludes retail non-comparable store sales, closed store sales and outlet store net revenues. Comparable store sales have been calculated based upon retail stores, excluding outlet stores, that were open at least fourteen full months as of the end of the reporting period and did not change square footage by more than 20% between periods. If a store is closed for seven days during a month, that month will be excluded from comparable store sales.
[d] Retail data has been calculated based upon retail stores, which includes our Baby & Child Galleries and excludes outlet stores.
[e] Retail sales per leased selling square foot is calculated by dividing total net revenues for all retail stores, comparable and non-comparable, by the average leased selling square footage for the period.
[f] Leased selling square footage is retail space at our stores used to sell our products. Leased selling square footage excludes backrooms at retail stores used for storage, office space or similar matters, as well as exterior sales space located outside a store, such as courtyards, gardens and rooftops. Leased selling square footage includes approximately 4,500 square feet related to one owned store location.
[g] Average square footage (leased or leased selling, as applicable) is calculated for each quarter by taking the total applicable square footage at the beginning of the quarter plus the total applicable square footage at the end of the quarter and dividing by two. Average square footage for periods of three and twelve months is calculated by averaging the average square footage for the quarters within such periods.

We define adjusted net income as consolidated 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.

[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 issuance of the $350 million principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June 2014 (the “Notes”), we separated the 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 component as interest expense on the Notes over the term of the Notes. The equity component represents the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the Notes and the fair value of the liability component of the Notes. Amounts are presented net of interest capitalized for capital projects of $0.2 million and $1.1 million during the three and twelve months ended January 31, 2015.
