  • Diluted EPS $0.70; Non-GAAP Diluted EPS $0.80, up 33%

PLANO, Texas - (BUSINESS WIRE) - August 05, 2020 - Rent-A-Center, Inc. (the "Company" or "Rent-A-Center") (NASDAQ/NGS: RCII) today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Second quarter performance significantly exceeded expectations," said Mitch Fadel, Chief Executive Officer. ”We called on every part of the organization to meet the immediate challenges brought by the pandemic, and our agility, speed, and execution paid off. We are on track to deliver revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, and Non-GAAP Diluted EPS for 2020 within the original guidance ranges we outlined at the beginning of the year prior to the pandemic, and are increasing our previous free cash flow guidance."

“The results underscore the critical role we serve for customers, and the strides we're making to improve their experience should benefit Rent-A-Center for years to come," continued Mr. Fadel.

"The Rent-A-Center Business achieved its strongest Adjusted EBITDA margin in several years, driven by operating expense control, share gains from a pullback in traditional lending and further adoption of e-commerce and digital payments," said Mr. Fadel. "Same-store sales were positive in each month of the quarter, with furniture and appliance sales back to pre-pandemic trends."

"Preferred Lease generated 25% growth in invoice volume despite extensive store closures in the second quarter, with a strong acceleration in May and June," continued Mr. Fadel. "The mix of high-quality customers should continue to drive revenue and portfolio performance, and we're excited about investments we've made to drive national account growth and introduce more verticals to our best-in-class model."

Mr. Fadel concluded, "We believe the changes to the way our customers live and work are here to stay. Our focus will remain on strategically managing our business to increase value for customers and retail partners. We'll continue to use and enhance technology to deepen our engagement and believe our resilient model and focus on innovation position us well for what's ahead. None of this would be possible without the strong dedication and extraordinary efforts of all of our employees who have done a remarkable job during these difficult times. They have our unbridled thanks."

Consolidated Results

On a consolidated basis, total revenues increased in the second quarter of 2020 to $683.7 million, or by 4.2 percent compared to the same period in 2019, driven by the implementation of the Preferred Lease virtual solution following the acquisition of Merchants Preferred in August 2019 and an increase in same store sales revenue of 7.8 percent in the Rent-A-Center Business segment, partially offset by the refranchising of approximately 60 Rent-A-Center locations during the preceding 15 months. Excluding effects on revenues resulting from the refranchising efforts, consolidated revenues increased 5.1 percent in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019.

On a GAAP basis, the Company generated $53.6 million in operating profit in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $129.8 million in the second quarter of 2019. Operating profit in the second quarter of 2019 included approximately $80 million of net proceeds from the settlement in respect of our termination of the merger agreement with Vintage Rodeo Parent, LLC and Vintage Rodeo Acquisition, Inc.

Net earnings and diluted earnings per share, on a GAAP basis, were $38.5 million and $0.70 respectively in the second quarter of 2020 compared to net earnings and diluted earnings per share of $94.5 million and $1.70 respectively in the second quarter of 2019.

The Company's Non-GAAP second quarter 2020 diluted earnings per share were $0.80 compared to $0.60 in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 32.8 percent. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter was $75.9 million, which was burdened by $5.6 million in COVID-related skip/stolen losses, including additional reserves for estimated future losses, compared to $67.4 million in the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter was 11.1 percent, an increase of 80 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company generated $254.7 million of cash from operations. The Company ended the second quarter of 2020 with $206.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and $198.5 million of outstanding indebtedness. The Company's debt was reduced by $163.5 million from the end of the first quarter 2020, which included the repayment of $118.0 million of indebtedness drawn against the Company's revolving credit facility in March 2020 as a precautionary measure in response to the spread of COVID-19. The Company's net debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio ended the second quarter at 0.0 times compared to 0.8 times as of the end of the second quarter 2019. The Company ended the second quarter of 2020 with $418 million of liquidity which includes $211 million of remaining availability on its revolving credit facility.

Recent Dividend

As previously announced, the Rent-A-Center Board of Directors declared on June 26, 2020 a cash dividend of $0.29 per share for the third quarter of 2020, which was paid on July 28, 2020 to stockholders of record at the close of business on July 10, 2020.

Rent-A-Center Business Segment

Second quarter 2020 revenues of $459.2 million increased 1.8 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2019, driven by an increase in same store sales revenue of 7.8 percent partially offset by refranchising approximately 60 locations during the preceding 15 months. Excluding effects on revenues resulting from the refranchising efforts, revenues increased 4.0 percent in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019. The 7.8 percent same store sales increase, benefited from government stimulus related to the pandemic, higher early payouts, stronger demand, better collections, and higher digital payment penetration. As a percent of revenue, skip/stolen losses were 3.7 percent, 20 basis points lower than in the first quarter of 2020 and 50 basis points higher than in the second quarter of 2019. The skip/stolen losses did not require a reserve adjustment for potential future adverse collection trends as a result of the pandemic. Segment operating profit was $85.1 million in the second quarter, and as a percent of segment revenue increased 420 basis points versus the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $91.8 million, and as a percent of segment revenue increased 380 basis points versus the prior year driven primarily by lower operating expenses. At June 30, 2020, the Rent-A-Center Business segment had 1,954 company-operated locations.

Preferred Lease Segment

Second quarter 2020 revenues increased 8.4 percent to $191.2 million as compared to the second quarter of 2019 and were driven primarily by the implementation of the Preferred Lease virtual solution following the acquisition of Merchants Preferred in August 2019. Despite the temporary COVID-related closures of many retail locations, Preferred Lease invoice volume increased 25.4 percent to $136.5 million as compared to the second quarter of 2019 through both organic growth in staffed locations and the addition of the Preferred Lease virtual solution following the acquisition of Merchants Preferred in August 2019. In the second quarter, $5.6 million in incremental skip/stolen losses, including additional reserves for estimated future adverse collection trends, was recorded as a result of COVID-19. As a percent of revenue, skip/stolen losses were 18.4 percent, or 15.4 percent excluding the impact of the estimated incremental COVID-related losses and reserves. Segment operating profit was $6.2 million in the second quarter, and as a percent of segment revenue decreased 960 basis points versus the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.9 million, and as a percent of segment revenue represented a decrease of 950 basis points versus the prior year.

Franchising Segment

Second quarter 2020 revenues of $22.7 million increased 52.5 percent compared to the second quarter of 2019 due to higher store count, with approximately 60 locations having been refranchised during the preceding 15 months, and higher inventory purchases by our franchisees. Segment operating profit was $3.0 million in the second quarter, and as a percent of segment revenue increased 120 basis points versus the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.0 million, and as a percent of segment revenue represented an increase of 120 basis points versus the prior year. At June 30, 2020, there were 370 franchise-operated locations.

Mexico Segment

Second quarter 2020 revenues of $10.6 million reflect a decrease of 4.6 percent on a constant currency basis compared to the second quarter of 2019. Segment operating profit was $1.1 million in the second quarter, and as a percent of segment revenue decreased 100 basis points versus the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.2 million, and as a percent of segment revenue represented a decrease of 80 basis points versus the prior year. At June 30, 2020, the Mexico business had 121 company-operated locations.

Corporate Segment

Second quarter 2020 expenses decreased by $5.8 million and, as a percent of consolidated revenue, decreased 110 basis points versus the same period of the prior year, driven by operating expense management, furloughs, lower incentive compensation and other expense reductions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This communication contains certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), including (1) Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (net earnings, as adjusted for special items (as defined below), net of taxes, divided by the number of shares of our common stock on a fully diluted basis), (2) Adjusted EBITDA (net earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted for special items) on a consolidated and segment basis and (3) Free Cash Flow (net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures). “Special items” refers to certain gains and charges we view as extraordinary or non-recurring in nature and which we believe do not reflect our core business activities. For the periods presented herein, these special items are described in the quantitative reconciliation tables included below in this communication. Because of the inherent uncertainty related to the special items, management does not believe it is able to provide a meaningful forecast of the comparable GAAP measures or reconciliation to any forecasted GAAP measure.

These non-GAAP measures are additional tools intended to assist our management in comparing our performance on a more consistent basis for purposes of business decision-making by removing the impact of certain items management believes do not directly reflect our core operations. These measures are intended to assist management in evaluating operating performance and liquidity, comparing performance and liquidity across periods, planning and forecasting future business operations, helping determine levels of operating and capital investments and identifying and assessing additional trends potentially impacting our company that may not be shown solely by comparisons of GAAP measures. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are also used as part our incentive compensation program for our executive officers and others.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures also provide supplemental information that is useful to investors, analysts and other external users of our consolidated financial statements in understanding our financial results and evaluating our performance and liquidity from period to period. However, non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations and are not substitutes for or superior to, and they should be read together with, our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare such measures to the non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies, even if they have the same or similar names.
