Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS) today reported its unaudited operating results for the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and for the twelve-months ended March 31, 2022.

Management Comments

“We continue to successfully execute on our multi-year plan of transforming Nautilus into a leading digitally enabled at-home fitness company. Fiscal year and fourth quarter performance was strong. Our strategic decision to pull forward key technology and marketing investments is paying off, as we have increased JRNY® members to over 325,000 at year-end, exceeding our initial expectations by 30%. Our diversified omnichannel strength and cardio offerings enabled us to meet fourth quarter demand, with revenue up 41% compared to the same period in 2020,” said Jim Barr, Nautilus, Inc. Chief Executive Officer.

“Year one of our North Star strategy is complete and our transformation is well on track. The foundation has been set, including harnessing a culture of innovation, establishing key third-party partnerships, and evolving our manufacturing and distribution capabilities to meet consumer demand. These advancements will allow us to successfully navigate the current operating environment. We are committed to balancing continued growth investments with an efficient cost structure to drive both our transformation and put us on a path to deliver positive adjusted EBITDA1 during the second-half of fiscal 2023.”

Company Results

Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to Three-Months Ended March 31, 2021

  • Net sales were $119.7 million, compared to $206.1 million, a decline of 41.9% versus last year. As a reminder, the comparable quarter last year was the highest quarterly sales in the company’s history. Net sales are up 41%, or a 19% CAGR, when compared to the same period ended in 2020, excluding Octane. Lower demand of our cardio products was partially offset by strong sales of SelectTech® weights and benches compared to the same period in 2021.
  • Gross profit was $21.0 million, compared to $79.1 million last year. Gross profit margins were 17.5% compared to 38.4% last year. The 20.9 ppt decrease in gross margins was primarily due to: increased product costs, logistics and discounting (-16 ppts) and increased investments in JRNY® (-5 ppts).
  • Operating expenses were $42.9 million, an increase of $3.5 million, or 8.9%, compared to last year, primarily due to a $5.1 million increase in JRNY® investments and $2.5 million more in advertising. Total advertising expenses were $14.0 million versus $11.5 million last year.
  • Operating loss was $21.9 million or a negative 18.3% operating margin, compared to operating income of $39.7 million last year, primarily due to lower gross profit and higher operating expenses.
  • Loss from continuing operations was $18.2 million, or $(0.58) per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $30.6 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, last year.
  • Net loss was $18.2 million, or $(0.58) per diluted share, compared to net income of $30.4 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, last year.
  • The effective tax rate was 20.5% this year compared to 19.9% last year, primarily due to the impact of the higher non-deductible GAAP book expenses related to the VAY AG acquisition.
  • The following statements exclude the impact of VAY AG acquisition and other related costs1 for the three-months ended March 31, 2022.
    • Adjusted operating expenses were $42.1 million, or 35.2% of sales, compared to $39.4 million, or 19.1% of sales, last year. The increase was driven by JRNY® investments and advertising.
    • Adjusted operating loss was $21.1 million compared to last year’s income of $39.7 million, driven by lower gross profit and higher adjusted operating expenses.
    • Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations was $16.9 million compared to earnings of $42.9 million last year.

Excluding sales related to the Octane brand, net sales were down 9% compared to last year and up 112%, or a 46% CAGR, when compared to twelve-months ended March 31, 2020. The sales decrease compared to the same period in 2021 was driven primarily by lower cardio sales offset by robust sales of our popular SelectTech® weights and benches.
  • Gross profit was $148.5 million compared to $272.3 million last year. Gross profit margins were 25.2% compared to 41.0% last year. The 15.8 ppts decrease in gross margins was primarily due to: increased product costs, logistics and discounting (-14 ppts) and increased investments in JRNY® (-2 ppts).
  • Operating expenses were $173.8 million, an increase of $19.6 million, or 12.7%, compared to $154.2 million last year, primarily due to $25.9 million more in advertising, increased JRNY® investments of $14.6 million, a legal settlement of $4.7 million and acquisition expenses of $2.4 million, partially offset by last year’s $20.7 million Octane loss on disposal group2. Total advertising expenses were $58.3 million compared to $32.4 million last year.
  • Operating loss was $25.3 million compared to income of $118.1 million last year. The decrease was primarily due to lower gross profit and higher operating expenses, partially offset by the Octane loss on disposal group2.

Balance Sheet and Other Key Highlights as ofMarch 31, 2022:

  • Cash and Liquidity:
    • Total liquidity, defined as cash, investments, and available borrowing under the Company’s line of credit, was $80.0 million, compared to $167.6 million as of March 31, 2021.
    • Cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash were $14.2 million, compared to cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and available-for-sale securities of $113.2 million as of March 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the strategic decision to increase on-hand inventory for the fitness season and the acquisition of VAY AG.
    • Debt and other borrowings were $29.4 million compared to $13.3 million as of March 31, 2021.
    • $65.8 million was available for borrowing under the Wells Fargo Asset Based Lending Revolving Facility (“Facility”) compared to $54.4 million as of March 31, 2021.
  • Inventory was $111.2 million, down from $128.1 million as of December 31, 2021, but up compared to $68.1 million as of March 31, 2021. The increase in inventory versus March 31, 2021, is driven by the strategic decision to increase on-hand inventory levels given disruption in global logistics. About 14% of inventory as of March 31, 2022, was in-transit.
  • Trade receivables were $61.5 million, compared to $88.7 million as of March 31, 2021. The decrease in trade receivables was due to the timing of customer payments.
  • Trade payables were $53.2 million, compared to $98.9 million as of March 31, 2021. The decrease in trade payables was primarily due to the timing of payments for inventory.
  • Capital expenditures totaled $12.5 million for the twelve-month period ended March 31, 2022.

Forward Looking Guidance

  • For Fiscal 2023, Nautilus expects to return to a more typical pre-pandemic seasonality with the 2nd half of the year contributing more of the full year’s revenue. As a result, the Company expects the first fiscal quarter ending in June to represent the low point for the year, followed by the second fiscal quarter ending in September being the second lowest. The third quarter ending in December is expected to be the strongest with the fourth quarter expected to be slightly lower than the third quarter.
  • Additionally, to gauge growth and progress against more “normalized” results, the Company will be measuring Fiscal Year 2023 sales growth versus the same pre-pandemic period in Fiscal Year 2020.

Fiscal Q1 2023

  • The Company expects Q1 FY2023 sales to be between $45 million and $55 million. At the mid-point, compared to the same period in Fiscal Year 2020, this guidance represents a decline of 13% or 4% growth excluding Octane. Q1 revenue guidance reflects weaker retail demand as our partners work through their elevated inventory levels.
  • The Company expects Q1 FY2023 Adjusted EBITDA loss of between $(22) million and $(27) million.

Second Half and Full Year 2023

  • The Company expects Full Year Revenue of between $380 million and $460 million. At the mid-point, compared to the same period in Fiscal Year 2020, this guidance represents 32% growth or 10% CAGR or 52% growth or 16% CAGR excluding Octane.
  • Given the impact of elevated inventory levels at the Company’s retail partners, the Company expects the 2nd half of the year to represent between 65% and 70% of full year sales, slightly higher than pre-pandemic 2nd half seasonality of approximately 60%.
  • Gross margins for the second half of the year are expected to be in the range of 27% to 30%. Improvements versus last year are driven by lower in-bound freight and demurrage fees, and the reduction in logistics facilities footprint. The Company is closing one of its distribution centers when the lease expires in the fall of 2022 and will not be renewing the leases of some storage locations.
  • Given higher anticipated sales levels in the 2nd half of the year, improved gross margins, and plans to flex sales and marketing expenses in-line with sales, the Company expects to deliver positive adjusted EBITDA for the 2nd half of Fiscal 2023.
  • As a result, the Company expects Full Year Adjusted EBITDA loss of between $(25) million and $(35) million.
  • The Company expects JRNY® members to exceed 500,000 at March 31, 2022.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP Presentation

In addition to disclosing its financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, Nautilus has presented in this release certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude the impact of certain items (as further described below) and provide supplemental information regarding operating performance. Nautilus presents non-GAAP financial measures as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP, and the non-GAAP financial measures should not be regarded as a substitute for GAAP. By disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures, management intends to provide investors with a supplemental comparison of operating results and trends for the periods presented. Management believes these measures are also useful to investors as such measures allow investors to evaluate performance using the same metrics that management uses to evaluate past performance and prospects for future performance. Nautilus strongly encourages you to review all its financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure.

Adjusted Results

In addition to disclosing the comparable GAAP results, Nautilus has presented its operating expenses and operating (loss) income on an adjusted basis. Adjusted operating expenses and Adjusted operating (loss) income excludes the non-cash charges related to the disposal group held-for-sale of Octane Fitness®, legal settlements and acquisition and other related costs. We believe that the adjustment of these charges and any associated tax benefit, which are inconsistent in amount and frequency, supplements the GAAP information with a measure that can be used to assess the sustainability of our operating performance. We may periodically incur charges or receive payments in connection with litigation settlements. We exclude these charges and legal settlements from non-GAAP when associated with a significant settlement because we do not believe they are reflective of ongoing business and operating results. We exclude certain expense items resulting from acquisitions, such as legal, accounting and advisory fees, deferred compensation and retention expense. Nautilus has also presented EBITDA from continuing operations on an adjusted basis, excluding the aforementioned items for similar reasons.

Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations

Nautilus has also presented EBITDA from continuing operations on an adjusted basis, to exclude the non-cash charge related to loss on disposal group, stock-based compensation expense, legal settlements, other expenses, net, and acquisition and other related costs. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies as the calculations of stock-based compensation vary from period to period and company to company due to different valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions, and the variety of award types. We exclude other expenses, net that are the result of factors and can vary significantly from one period to the next, we believe that exclusion of such other expenses are useful to management and investors in evaluating the performance of our ongoing operations on a period-to-period basis. We believe that the adjustment of this charge, which is inconsistent in amount and frequency, supplements the EBITDA information with a measure that can be used to assess the sustainability of our operating performance.

We do not reconcile non-GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis as it is impractical to do so without unreasonable effort.

(1) Loss on disposal group
In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 360, Property, Plant and Equipment, for a long-lived assets or disposal group classified as held-for-sale, a loss is recognized for the carrying amount that exceeds the fair market value of the long-lived assets less the cost to sell. The assets and liabilities of a disposal group classified as held-for-sale should be presented separately in the asset and liability sections, respectively, of the balance sheet. The disposal group was structured as a sale of the subsidiary shares and we elected to classify the deferred taxes associated with the individual assets and liabilities as part of the disposal group held-for-sale.
