The Duckhorn Portfolio Announces Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Jun 2nd, 2022 16:15 EST

ST. HELENA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Duckhorn Portfolio, Inc. (NYSE: NAPA) (the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the three months ended April 30, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Net sales were $91.6 million, an increase of $1.2 million, or 1.3%, versus the prior year period.
  • Gross profit was $44.0 million, a decrease of $3.0 million, or 6.3%, versus the prior year period. Including an adjustment for a $3.9 million seltzer inventory reserve, adjusted gross profit was $48.1 million, an increase of $0.8 million, or 1.8%, versus the prior year period.
  • Net income was $15.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, versus $9.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the prior year period; adjusted net income was $19.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, versus $17.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted net income increased $2.0 million, or 11.5%, when compared against the prior year period, and adjusted earnings per share would have been $0.15 per diluted share in the prior year period if similarly burdened by public company costs and using the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 diluted share count.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $32.9 million, similar to the prior year period of $32.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA increased $0.9 million, or 2.9%, and margin increased approximately 60 bps versus the prior year period when comparing adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter against the prior year period similarly burdened by public company costs.
  • Cash was $8.7 million as of April 30, 2022, with a leverage ratio of 1.9x net debt (net of deferred financing costs) to trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA.

“As we celebrate a full year of being a public company, we are proud to have established ourselves as the only pure-play luxury wine player of scale and are pleased with our strong, consistent financial performance” commented Alex Ryan, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “The power of our portfolio and our ability to capitalize on the growing demand for luxury wine was evident in the quarter as we continue to achieve positive top line results against robust year-over-year comparisons and gain share in a dynamic market. Duckhorn Vineyards and Decoy continue to standout, as they both significantly outperformed the high-growth luxury wine segment and we believe we have runway for years of growth ahead.

Ryan continued, “Given the momentum we have sustained year-to-date, we are raising our Fiscal 2022 net sales, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS guidance. Our consumers and distributors recognize us for our quality and consistency, and we are positioned to deliver on our financial targets for the fiscal year. We remain confident in our ability to continue to execute our strategy and provide valuable returns for our stakeholders for years to come.”

Note: Sum of individual amounts may not recalculate due to rounding.

Net sales were $91.6 million, an increase of $1.2 million, or 1.3%, versus $90.4 million in the prior year period. The increase in net sales was a result of positive 1.9% price/mix contribution related to favorable brand and channel mix contribution, which was partially offset by negative 0.6% volume growth. Evaluating our sales results on a three-year basis, which we believe is indicative of the underlying performance of the business without pandemic-related noise, net sales and volumes reflect compound annual growth rates (CAGR) of 13.3% and 19.9%, respectively.

Gross profit was $44.0 million, a decrease of $3.0 million, or 6.3%, versus the prior year period, related entirely to the $3.9 million seltzer inventory reserve and partially offset by favorable mix. Gross profit margin was 48.0%, down 390 basis points versus the prior year period as positive mix was fully offset by the seltzer inventory reserve. Adjusted gross profit was $48.1 million, an increase of $0.8 million, or 1.8%, versus the prior year period, and adjusted gross profit margin was 52.5%, up 26 basis points versus the prior year period.

Total selling, general and administrative expenses were $23.1 million, a decrease of $8.1 million, or 25.9%, versus $31.1 million in the prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributed to IPO related expenses that existed in the prior year period, including equity-based compensation and transaction expenses, partially offset by marginally higher workforce-related expenses, among other items. Selling expenses also increased approximately $1.6 million primarily to support sales activities and the continued resurgence of business travel versus the prior year period.

Net income was $15.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, versus $9.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted net income was $19.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, versus $17.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the prior year period. The increase in adjusted net income was due to higher net sales, favorable brand and channel mix, lower interest expense and lower income tax expense, partially offset by increases in direct selling expenses, which were generally in line with net sales growth during the period. For comparison, adjusted net income for the third quarter of Fiscal 2021 would have been $17.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, if that earlier period reflected similar public company costs and diluted share count consistent with the third quarter of Fiscal 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA was $32.9 million, similar to the prior year period, as greater net sales and gross profit were offset by increased SG&A less equity-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA increased $0.9 million, or 2.9%, and margin increased approximately 60 bps versus the prior year when comparing adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter against the prior year period similarly burdened by public company costs.

Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance
The Company is raising and narrowing its previously provided Fiscal 2022 guidance. For the year, we now expect to deliver adjusted EPS between $0.59 and $0.62 per diluted share versus Fiscal 2021 adjusted EPS of $0.58 per diluted share. Note that the provided annual range is negatively impacted by an increase in weighted average share count of approximately nine million shares or 8% on a year-over-year basis, a function of timing related to the Company’s third quarter Fiscal 2021 initial public offering. Fiscal 2022 also includes a full year of public company costs, while Fiscal 2021 results include only a partial year of public company costs.

Accordingly, the Company views it as useful to consider these factors in evaluating our operating performance year-over-year. On a like-for-like basis, the guidance range provided for Fiscal 2022 adjusted EPS of $0.59 to $0.62 per diluted share is comparable to what would be an adjusted EPS of $0.52 per diluted share in Fiscal 2021 if that year had been burdened by a full year of public company costs and assuming a diluted share count consistent with our guidance for Fiscal 2022.

The Company’s upwardly revised and narrowed guidance ranges for Fiscal year 2022 are as follows:

THE DUCKHORN PORTFOLIO, INC.
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS, collectively referred to as “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” are commonly used in the Company’s industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net income or earnings per share as indicators of operating performance (as determined in accordance with GAAP). These Non-GAAP Financial Measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company has included these Non-GAAP Financial Measures because it believes the measures provide management and investors with additional information to evaluate business performance in comparison to budgets, forecasts and prior year financial results.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures are adjusted to exclude certain items that affect comparability. The adjustments are itemized in the tables below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reason the Company considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating adjustments, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments set forth below. The presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or recurring items.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company calculates as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash equity-based compensation expense, purchase accounting adjustments, casualty losses or gains, impairment losses (including certain inventory charges), changes in the fair value of derivatives and certain other items which are not related to our core operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure the Company uses in evaluating its operational results. The Company believes adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure to provide investors an understanding of how management regularly monitors the Company’s core operating performance, as well as how management makes operational and strategic decisions in allocating resources. The Company believes adjusted EBITDA also provides management and investors consistency and comparability with the Company’s past financial performance and facilitates period to period comparisons of operations, as it eliminates the effects of certain variations unrelated to its overall performance.

Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations include:

  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs;
  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company’s debt;
  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to the Company; and
  • other companies, including companies in the Company’s industry, may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, you should consider adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and the Company’s other GAAP results. In evaluating adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company’s presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by the types of items excluded from the calculation of adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Gross Profit
Adjusted gross profit is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company calculates as gross profit excluding the impact of purchase accounting adjustments (including depreciation and amortization related to purchase accounting), bulk wine losses, and certain inventory charges. We believe adjusted gross profit is a useful measure to us and our investors to assist in evaluating our operating performance because it provides consistency and direct comparability with our past financial performance between fiscal periods, as the metric eliminates the effects of non-cash or other expenses unrelated to our core operating performance that would result in fluctuations in a given metric for reasons unrelated to overall continuing operating performance. Adjusted gross profit should not be considered a substitute for gross profit or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income
Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company calculates as net income excluding the impact of non-cash equity-based compensation expense, purchase accounting adjustments, casualty losses or gains, impairment losses (including certain inventory charges), changes in the fair value of derivatives and certain other items unrelated to core operating performance, as well as the estimated income tax impacts of all such adjustments included in this non-GAAP performance measure. We believe adjusted net income assists us and our investors in evaluating our performance period-over-period. In calculating adjusted net income, we also calculate the following non-GAAP financial measures which adjust each GAAP-based financial measure for the relevant portion of each adjustment to reach adjusted net income:

  • Adjusted net sales – calculated as net sales excluding the impact of purchase accounting and bulk wine losses;
  • Adjusted SG&A – calculated as selling, general, and administrative expenses excluding the impacts of purchase accounting, transaction expenses, equity-based compensation, and COVID-19 costs;
  • Adjusted income tax – calculated as the tax effect of all adjustments to reach adjusted net income based on the applicable blended statutory tax rate for the period.

Adjusted net income should not be considered a substitute for net income or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EPS
Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company calculates as adjusted net income divided by diluted share count for the applicable period. We believe adjusted EPS is useful to us and our investors because it improves comparability of results of operations from period to period. Adjusted EPS should not be considered a substitute for net income per share or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.
