Outlook for Fiscal Year 2020

"Our accelerated transformation plan is on track and is progressing very well.  We delivered another consecutive quarter of gross margin improvement, demonstrated significant working capital improvement, generated strong free cash flow and repaid $55 million of our outstanding debt balance.  Our focus on maintaining a strong cash and working capital position, alongside our focus on higher quality revenue and rigorous expense controls will continue to position Vista Outdoor to capitalize on organic growth opportunities going forward," said Mick Lopez, Vista Outdoor Chief Financial Officer.

Vista Outdoor's outlook for full year Fiscal 2020 has been updated to reflect the following:

  • Sales in a range of $1.75 billion to $1.80 billion, compared to the previous expectation of $1.75 billion to $1.85 billion.
  • Interest expense reported of approximately $40 million and adjusted of approximately $35 million, compared to the previous adjusted interest expense expectation of $37 million.
  • GAAP Earnings per share in a range of $(0.20) to $(0.15), as compared to the previous range of $(0.23) and $(0.08), and adjusted earnings per share of $0.15 to $0.20, compared to the previous expectation of adjusted earnings per share in the range of $0.10 to $0.25.
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $35 million, compared to the previous expectation of $40 million.
  • Free cash flow in a range of $40 million to $50 million, compared to the previous expectation of $30 million to $40 million.

The adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating expenses, adjusted operating profit (earnings before interest, tax and other) (operating profit), adjusted other income/(expense), adjusted interest expense, adjusted tax rate, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share (adjusted EPS) presented below are non-GAAP financial measures. Vista Outdoor defines these measures as gross profit, operating expenses, operating income, other income / (expense), interest expense, income tax rate, net income, and EPS basic and diluted excluding, where applicable, the impact of costs incurred for contingent consideration, transaction costs, restructuring and asset impairment costs, debt issuance costs, goodwill and intangibles impairment, impairment of held-for-sale assets, tax valuation allowance, and transformation costs. Vista Outdoor management is presenting these measures so a reader may compare gross profit, operating profit, tax rate, and EPS excluding these items, as the measures provide investors with an important perspective on the operating results of the company. Vista Outdoor management uses this measurement internally to assess business performance, and Vista Outdoor's definition may differ from those used by other companies.

*NOTE: Adjustments to "as reported" results are items that are excluded to arrive at the "as adjusted" results for the quarters ended December 29, 2019 and December 30, 2018. EPS amounts may not foot due to rounding.

For the quarter ended December 29, 2019:

During the quarter ended December 29, 2019 we incurred restructuring and asset impairment costs related to impairment on rent receivables and operational realignments costs which were incurred to generate longer-term benefits. We do not consider these items indicative of earnings from ongoing business activities. The tax effect of these costs was calculated based on a blended statutory rate of approximately 24 percent.

During the quarter ended December 29, 2019, in connection with the repayment of the Junior Term Loan, unamortized debt issuance costs were written off and repayment premium fees were paid. Given the infrequent and unique nature of these costs, the company believes these costs are not indicative of ongoing operations of the company. The tax effect of the transaction costs was calculated based on a blended statutory rate of approximately 24 percent.

During the quarter ended December 29, 2019, we recorded a tax valuation allowance of $(3.3) million.  Due to previous impairments, the Company continues to be in a three-year cumulative loss position resulting in a tax valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets. Given the infrequent and unique nature of this tax valuation allowance, we do not believe the $(3.3) million tax expense related to the tax valuation allowance of the deferred tax assets is indicative of operations of the company.

For the quarter ended December 30, 2018:

During the quarter ended December 30, 2018, we recorded a portion of the approximately $10 million of compensation for the Camp Chef earn-out, which will be paid over the next year, subject to continued Camp Chef leadership employment and the achievement of certain incremental profitability growth milestones. Given this balance is related to the purchase price of the company and is not normal compensation of the employees and will not be a continuing cost, we do not believe these costs are indicative of operations of the company. The tax effect of the contingent consideration cost was calculated based on a blended statutory rate of approximately 24 percent.

During the quarter ended December 30, 2018, we incurred transaction costs associated with possible and completed transactions, including advisory, legal, and accounting service fees. Given the nature of transaction costs, and differences in these amounts from one transaction to another, the company feels these costs are not indicative of operations of the company. The tax effect of the transaction costs that are deductible for tax was calculated based on a blended statutory rate of approximately 24 percent.

During the quarter ended December 30, 2018, we wrote off debt issuance costs in connection with the refinancing our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated April 1, 2016. Given the infrequent and unique nature of the debt issuance write-off costs, the company believes these costs are not indicative of operations of the company. The tax effect of the transaction costs was calculated based on a blended statutory rate of approximately 24 percent.

During the quarter ended December 30, 2018, we recognized a $433 million total impairment of goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. The trading price of our common stock declined significantly in the quarter ended December 30, 2018, increasing the difference between the market value of Vista Outdoor equity and the book value of the assets recorded on our balance sheet and implying that investors' may believe that the fair value of our reporting units is lower than their book value. In addition, as a result of a weaker than expected 2018 holiday shopping season and increasing uncertainty from the impact of retail bankruptcies, tariffs and other factors affecting the market for our products, we reduced our sales projections for fiscal year 2020 and beyond for a number of our reporting units for purposes of our long-range financial plan, which is updated annually beginning in our third quarter. As a result of these factors, we determined that a triggering event had occurred during the quarter with respect to our Hunting and Shooting Accessories, Outdoor Recreation, and Action Sports reporting units, which required that we assess the fair value of these reporting units using the income-based and market-based approaches described above. Given the unusual and infrequent nature of this impairment we do not believe these costs are indicative of operations of the company. The tax effect of the goodwill and intangibles impairment charge was determined based on the fact that the goodwill impairment charge of $328 million, a portion of which was non-deductible and the remainder was deductible at a rate of approximately 24 percent for tax purposes, and the remaining intangible asset impairment of $105 million was deductible at a rate of approximately 24 percent. The current quarter impairment caused the Company to be in a three-year cumulative loss position, which resulted in a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets to be recorded. Given the unusual and infrequent nature of this valuation allowance, we do not believe the $29 million tax expense related to the valuation allowance of the deferred tax assets is indicative of operations of the company.

During the quarter ended December 30, 2018, Vista Outdoor recognized a loss of $84 million related to the impairment of the firearms held-for-sale assets. Given the infrequent and unique nature of the firearms business divestiture, the company believes these costs are not indicative of ongoing operations. There is no tax effect of this loss because it is not deductible for tax purposes.

During the quarter ended December 30, 2018, Vista Outdoor also incurred business transformation costs related to the sublease of the former corporate headquarters, operational realignments, and the implementation of a new ERP system. Given the infrequent and unique nature of these business transformation costs, the company believes these costs are not indicative of ongoing operations. The tax effect of these costs was calculated based on a blended statutory rate of approximately 24 percent.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is defined as cash (used for) provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and excluding the following costs which have been adjusted for applicable tax amounts: contingent consideration costs, transaction costs, debt issuances costs, restructuring and asset impairment costs, business transformation costs and loss on divestiture (Eyewear Brands). Vista Outdoor management believes free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on the cash available for debt repayment and acquisitions after making the capital investments required to support ongoing business operations. Vista Outdoor management uses free cash flow internally to assess both business performance and overall liquidity.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share - Guidance Reconciliation Table

The projected adjusted earnings per share (EPS), excluding the impact of costs incurred to date for contingent consideration costs, current transaction costs, restructuring and asset impairment costs, debt issuance costs, loss on divestiture, impairment of held-for-sale assets, and tax valuation allowance is a non-GAAP financial measure that Vista Outdoor defines as EPS excluding the impact of these items. Vista Outdoor management is presenting this measure so a reader may compare EPS, excluding these items, as this measure provides investors with an important perspective on the operating results of the company. Vista Outdoor management uses this measurement internally to assess business performance, and Vista Outdoor's definition may differ from those used by other companies.
