Mark Tritton, Bed Bath & Beyond's President and CEO said, "We have started the year in a position of strength and are clearly on track to accomplish our goals. 2021 marks the first year of our three-year transformation following the groundwork we laid in 2020 – a year of historic and necessary change for this organization against the backdrop of unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19.  For the first quarter, we delivered our fourth consecutive quarter of comparable sales growth with gross margin expansion exceeding our expectations.  These results demonstrate continued momentum with our strategies as we progress towards the goals we outlined at year-end and at our Investor Day."

Tritton added, "During the quarter, we successfully launched our margin-accretive, customer-inspired Owned Brands and accelerated growth with our Digital First, Omni-Always focus. We are re-establishing our authority in home, recapturing market share and unlocking our full potential. We continue to execute quarter after quarter, and we are pleased to be raising our full year guidance outlook today.

We have made meaningful progress against our transformational pillars during this early stage of our multi-year plan. We have confidently achieved each milestone along our transformation thus far and I would like to thank our team of incredible associates for their work in defining and driving these results. We are a stronger, more agile company than ever before and well on our way to building long-term growth and unlocking greater shareholder value."

Q1 Highlights

  • Core1 Sales growth of +73%; Comparable3 Sales growth of +86% versus Q1 2020
  • Comparable Sales growth for Total Enterprise +3% compared to Q1 2019
  • Gross Margin of 32.4% and Adjusted2 Gross Margin of 34.9%, primarily driven by Owned Brand launches and channel mix shift due to normalized digital penetration versus the COVID-19 period last year
  • Q1 Adjusted2 EBITDA of $86 million inclusive of incremental marketing investments during the quarter
  • Establishes guidance outlook for 2021 second quarter
  • Raises full fiscal year 2021 guidance outlook on Sales and Adjusted2 EBITDA; Re-establishes Adjusted EPS guidance

Fiscal 2021 First Quarter Results (March-April-May)

  • Net sales were $1.95 billion, reflecting Core1 banner sales growth of 73% compared to the prior year period. Net sales growth versus last year was primarily driven by an increase in Bed Bath & Beyond banner sales.
    • Net sales included planned reductions of 24% from non-core banner divestitures.
  • Comparable3 sales increased 86% compared to the prior year period, which excludes the impact of the Company's fleet optimization activity. Compared to 2019 fiscal first quarter, total enterprise comparable sales increased 3%, driven by digital sales growth of 84%.
    • Comparable3 sales included an estimated 13% impact from fleet optimization activity when compared to the fiscal 2020 first quarter.
  • Bed Bath & Beyond banner sales increased 96% compared to the prior year period as the Company had a significant number of stores closed during the 2020 fiscal first quarter at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
    • Bed Bath & Beyond banner sales were driven by growth in its key destination categories, which includes Bedding, Bath, Kitchen Food Prep, Indoor Decor and Home Organization. In total, these categories delivered strong sales growth of more than 100% compared to the 2020 fiscal first quarter and growth of 7% on a comparable sales basis versus the 2019 fiscal first quarter. These categories represented approximately two-thirds of total Bed Bath & Beyond banner sales in the first quarter.
  • The buybuy BABY banner continued to deliver positive sales growth with net sales increasing more than 20% compared to the 2020 fiscal first quarter, and an increase of low-single digits on a comparable sales basis versus the 2019 fiscal first quarter. Comparable sales were driven by more than 50% growth in digital.
  • Gross margin was 32.4% for the quarter. Excluding special items from both periods, adjusted2 gross margin increased 820 basis points to 34.9%, primarily driven by a favorable product mix from Owned Brand launches as well as a more normalized mix of digital sales coupled with a strong recovery in store sales growth.
  • SG&A expense, on both a GAAP and adjusted basis, decreased significantly compared to the prior year period, primarily due to cost reductions including divestitures of non-core assets and lower rent and occupancy expenses on more efficient stores. This was partially offset by incremental marketing investments to support the Company's "Home, Happier" campaign as well as the initial launches of the Company's Owned Brands.
  • Adjusted2 EBITDA for the period improved to $86 million compared to last year, primarily due to higher sales and adjusted2 gross margin expansion, which were partially offset by incremental marketing investments to support the Company's "Home, Happier" campaign as well as the initial launches of the Company's Owned Brands.
  • Net loss per diluted share of $0.48 includes approximately $56 million from special items. Excluding special items, adjusted2 net earnings per diluted share was $0.05. Special items reflect charges such as non-cash impairments related to certain store-level assets and tradenames, loss on sale of businesses, loss on the extinguishment of debt, and charges recorded in connection with the Company's restructuring and transformation initiatives. Restructuring and transformation initiatives includes accelerated markdowns and inventory reserves related to the planned assortment transition to Owned Brands and costs associated with store closures related to the Company's fleet optimization, and the income tax impact of these items.
  • As expected, operating cash flow usage of $28 million was in-line with historical first quarter seasonality and working capital needs. Accordingly, free cash flow5 was an investment of $102 million as a result of $74 million of planned capital expenditures in connection with store remodels, supply chain and IT systems.
  • Inventory reduced by approximately $110 million compared to the end of fiscal 2020, was primarily related to seasonal selling and product transitions in preparation for the introduction of the Company's Owned Brands, as well as store closures related to the Company's fleet optimization activity.
  • $130 million in capital return to shareholders through share repurchases.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments balance were approximately $1.2 billion.
  • Total Liquidity4 was approximately $1.9 billion, including the Company's asset based revolving credit facility.

Guidance Outlook

As a reminder, Net Sales throughout fiscal 2021 include the Company's Core1 businesses and reflects planned reductions related to the Company's store fleet optimization activity.

Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter Outlook

The Company expects fiscal 2021 second quarter Net Sales of between $2.04 billion to $2.08 billion, which only reflects sales from the Company's Core1 businesses.  Net Sales also includes planned sales reductions from the Company's store fleet optimization program of approximately 9% to 10%. On a Comparable Sales basis, the Company expects to achieve growth in the low-single digit range compared to the prior year period.

The Company expects to achieve Adjusted2 Gross Margin in the range of 35% to 36%.  This represents a sequential improvement versus the 2021 fiscal first quarter primarily driven by continued assortment curation and a higher penetration of the Company's Owned Brands.  Additionally, this guidance reflects the on-going, year-over-year impact of higher, industry-wide freight costs.

The Company expects Adjusted2 EBITDA between  $150 million to $160 million and Adjusted2 EPS in the range of $0.48 to $0.55 for the fiscal 2021 second quarter.

Fiscal Year 2021 Outlook

Based on strong performance in the fiscal first quarter and current expectations for the fiscal second quarter, the Company is raising its fiscal year 2021 guidance outlook. 

The Company now expects higher fiscal year 2021 Net Sales of $8.2 billion to $8.4 billion from $8.0 billion to $8.2 billion. The Company is raising comparable sales expectations for the second through fourth quarters of fiscal 2021 to the Low-Single Digit growth range versus its previously communicated guidance outlook for Flat comparable sales growth.  This compares to the Company's robust sales performance during the second through fourth quarters of fiscal 2020.

The Company is also increasing its Adjusted2 EBITDA guidance to a range of $520 million to $540 million from $500 million to $525 million and re-introduces a full fiscal year 2021 Adjusted2 EPS range of $1.40 to $1.55.

The Company is reaffirming its previously issued guidance for Adjusted2 Gross Margin of approximately 35% and Adjusted2 SG&A of approximately 31%.

Additional details on the Company's fiscal 2021 outlook and visibility on the second quarter will be provided during its conference call as well as in its investor presentation available on the investor relations section of the Company's website at http://bedbathandbeyond.gcs-web.com/investor-relations.

Fiscal 2021 First Quarter Conference Call and Investor Presentation

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.'s fiscal 2021 first quarter conference call with analysts and investors will be held today at 8:15am EDT and may be accessed by dialing 1-888-424-8151, or if international, 1-847-585-4422, using conference ID number 7912336#. A live audio webcast of the conference call, along with the earnings press release, investor presentation and supplemental financial disclosures, will also be available on the investor relations section of the Company's website at http://bedbathandbeyond.gcs-web.com/investor-relations. The webcast will be available for replay after the call for a period of at least one year.

(1) 

The Company's four Core banners include Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy BABY, Harmon Face Values and Decorist.

(2) 

Adjusted items refer to comparable sales as well as financial measures that are derived from measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, which have been adjusted to exclude certain items. Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted SG&A, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Adjusted Diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures.  For more information about non-GAAP financial measures, see "Non-GAAP Information" below.

(3) 

The Company notes that first quarter growth rates in fiscal 2021 are not fully comparable due to last year's extended store closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Therefore, Comparable Sales Growth for the three months ended May 29, 2021 has been calculated by adjusting Core Sales for the estimated negative impact on 2021 sales of the store closures in fiscal 2020 as part of the Company's fleet optimization program.  The Company estimates that the stores closed in 2020 as part of this fleet optimization program would have contributed approximately 13% to Core Sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.  The Company believes this calculation of comparable sales is a more meaningful reference for the current quarter.  

(4) 

Total Liquidity includes cash & investments and availability under the Company's asset-based revolving credit facility.

(5) 

Free Cash Flow is defined as operating cash flow less capital expenditures.

(6) 

Leverage ratio calculated using Moody's gross debt/EBITDA ratios.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following table reconciles non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release or that may be presented on the Company's first quarter conference call with analysts and investors. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide management, analysts, investors and other users of the Company's financial information with meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of the Company's business. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to, but in addition to other financial measures prepared by the Company in accordance with GAAP, including the year-to-year results. The Company's method of determining these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from other companies' methods and, therefore, may not be comparable to those used by other companies and the Company does not recommend the sole use of this non-GAAP measure to assess its financial and earnings performance. For reasons noted above, the Company is presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures for its fiscal 2021 first quarter. In order for investors to be able to more easily compare the Company's performance across periods, the Company has included comparable reconciliations for the 2020 period in the reconciliation tables below. The Company is not providing a reconciliation of its guidance with respect to Adjusted EBITDA because the Company is unable to provide this reconciliation without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting the occurrence, the financial impact, and the periods in which the adjustments may be recognized. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.
