CEO Comments

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

“We are pleased with our continued strong financial performance in the second quarter. Net revenue, comparable growth, demand comparable growth(2), and profitability were above expectations, and our team executed with excellence, leveraging our supply chain investments and further shrinking delivery times. Strong demand trends throughout the quarter reflect our beautiful new product assortments that are resonating with our clients, including our new Outdoor collections, our inspirational showrooms and our new website experience.

“During the quarter we opened two new showrooms in Colorado Springs, Colorado and in White Plains, New York. Our new showrooms continue to perform incredibly well and are driving increased brand awareness as we continue to execute our growth strategy, moving from 80 showrooms today to what we believe will be 165 total traditional showrooms over time. Our target is to add five to seven new traditional showrooms per year for the foreseeable future. We are also excited to announce we have been so pleased with our Design Studio performance to date that we are planning to open two to three additional Design Studios in the next several months.

“I am incredibly proud of our team and all they continue to accomplish. Given our strong first half of the year performance, we are again increasing our full year outlook for 2022.”

Second Quarter 2022 Results

Net revenue increased 66.4% to $306 million, compared to $184 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was driven by strong demand in both Showroom and eCommerce channels, as well as continued improvements across our supply chain.  

Comparable growth(1) in the quarter was 65.2%, compared to 71.4% in the second quarter of 2021.

Income from operations increased to $50 million, compared to $9 million in the second 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 new 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 second quarter of 2021.

Net and comprehensive income was $37 million compared to $7 million in the second 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 $39 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $28 million in the second quarter of 2021.  

Adjusted EBITDA increased 76.4% to $60 million compared to $34 million in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net revenue increased 110 basis points to 19.7% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 18.6% in the second quarter of 2021.

The Company ended the quarter with 80 total showrooms across 28 states.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights, as of June 30, 2022

Cash and cash equivalents were $145 million, and the Company had no long-term debt at June 30, 2022. Net merchandise inventory increased 30.8% to $272 million, compared to $208 million as of December 31, 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net cash provided by operating activities was $41 million, compared to $110 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease was the result of several factors, including higher inventory levels, lower change in client deposits from improved delivery of orders in backlog, lower demand comparable growth in the first half of 2022 versus the first half of 2021, and certain non-cash items, particularly the non-recurrence of the derivative expense related to the change in fair value of our prior term loan agreement which reduced net income in the first six months of 2021 without a corresponding adverse impact to our cash generation, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $20 million which includes landlord contributions of approximately $7 million and company-funded capital expenditures(3) of approximately $13 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $14 million, which included landlord contributions of approximately $8 million and company-funded capital expenditures of approximately $5 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.

(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) Demand comparable growth is a key performance indicator and is defined as the year-over-year percentage change of demand from our comparable Showrooms and eCommerce, including through our direct-mail catalog.(3) Company-funded capital expenditures is defined as total net cash used in investing activities less landlord contributions.(4) U.S. GAAP net income. (5) 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.

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. For the six and three months ended June 30, 2022, these other expenses consisted largely of $3.1 million and $2.5 million of costs related to the opening and set-up of our Dallas distribution center, respectively.

(3) The Company applied its normalized tax rate of 25.8% and 25.3% to the adjustment for the six and three months ended June 30, 2022, respectively.

(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 six and three months ended June 30, 2021 are not tax affected.
