CEO Comments

John Reed, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, commented,

“We are very pleased with our first quarter 2022 performance. Net revenue and comparable growth were driven by the investments we are making to ensure faster and more efficient delivery of product to our clients and our improving supply chain. By delivering product to our clients more quickly than anticipated, we also outperformed our first quarter expectations for revenue and earnings. Demand trends were positive throughout the quarter and remain solid going into the second quarter.

“Outstanding execution by our team and our vendor partners continues to drive Arhaus’ momentum and is reflected in our increased outlook for full year 2022.”

First Quarter 2022 Results

Net revenue increased 43.8% to $246 million, compared to $171 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was driven primarily by increased delivery of orders in the backlog as our supply chain continues to improve. In addition, there was strong demand in both Showroom and eCommerce channels.  

Comparable growth(1) in the quarter was 40.3%, compared to 37.6% in the first quarter of 2021.

Income from operations increased to $23 million, compared to $11 million in the first quarter of 2021, primarily driven by higher net revenue. This was partially offset by higher product costs, transportation costs and variable rent expense related to the increased net revenue, as well as higher SG&A expenses to support the growth of the business and public company related costs. Higher SG&A expenses were partially offset by the non-recurrence of derivative expense related to our prior term loan agreement, that was recorded in the first quarter of 2021.

Net and comprehensive income was $16 million compared to $9 million in the first quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily driven by higher net revenue, partially offset by the above factors and a higher post-IPO tax rate. Adjusted net income was $17 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $19 million in the first quarter of 2021.  

Adjusted EBITDA increased 22.4% to $31 million compared to $25 million in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net revenue decreased 220 basis points to 12.7% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 14.9% in the first quarter of 2021.

The Company ended the quarter with 78 total showrooms across 28 states.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights, as of March 31, 2022

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $149 million, and the Company had no long-term debt at March 31, 2022. Net merchandise inventory increased 18.3% to $247 million, compared to $208 million as of December 31, 2021.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, net cash provided by operating activities was $35 million, compared to $73 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by increased inventory, changes in client deposits and certain non-cash items, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $10 million, which includes landlord contributions of approximately $2 million and company-funded capital expenditures(2) of approximately $8 million. For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $7 million, which included landlord contributions of approximately $3 million and company-funded capital expenditures of approximately $4 million. The increase in company-funded capital expenditures was primarily driven by growth-related investments, including new distribution capacity and costs related to new Showroom openings and information technology.

Outlook

________________________

(1) Comparable growth is a key performance indicator and is defined as the year-over-year percentage change of the dollar value of orders delivered (based on purchase price), net of the dollar value of returns (based on amount credited to client), from our comparable Showrooms and eCommerce, including through our direct-mail catalog.(2) Company-funded capital expenditures is defined as total net cash used in investing activities less landlord contributions.(3) We have not reconciled guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP financial measure because we do not provide guidance for the various reconciling items. These items include, but are not limited to, future share-based compensation expense, income taxes, interest expense, and transaction costs. We are unable to provide guidance for these reconciling items because we cannot determine their probable significance, as certain items are outside of our control and cannot be reasonably predicted due to the fact that these items could vary significantly from period to period. Accordingly, reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable effort.(4) U.S. GAAP net income.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue and adjusted net income, which present operating results on an adjusted basis.

We use non-GAAP measures to help assess the performance of our business, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. In addition to our results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to our investors as they present an informative supplemental view of our results from period to period by removing the effect of non-recurring items. However, our inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items or that the items for which we have made adjustments are unusual or infrequent or will not recur. These non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentations of these measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and can differ significantly from company to company. These measures should only be read together with the corresponding GAAP measures. Please refer to the reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP below.

(1) We repaid our term loan in full on December 28, 2020. The derivative expense relates to the change in the fair value of the exit fee at the end of each reporting period. The Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the IPO to pay the derivative liability on November 8, 2021.
(2) Other expenses (income) represent costs and investments not indicative of ongoing business performance, such as third-party consulting costs, one-time project start-up costs, severance, signing bonuses, recruiting and project-based strategic initiatives.
(3) The Company applied its normalized tax rate of 26.8% to the adjustment for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
(4) Prior to the Reorganization and IPO, the Company was a limited liability company under the Internal Revenue Code with a partnership tax election and did not pay federal or most state corporate income taxes on its taxable income. Accordingly, the adjustments for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not tax affected.
