Compass Diversified Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Jul 29, 2021

Generates Second Consecutive Quarter of Record Operating Results

Raises Full Year Guidance Based on Strong Ongoing Branded Consumer Performance

Provides Update on Potential Change in Tax Classification Aimed at Unlocking Shareholder Value

WESTPORT, Conn., July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compass Diversified (NYSE: CODI) (“CODI” or the “Company”), an owner of leading middle market businesses, announced today its consolidated operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Reported net sales of $487.4 million;
  • Reported net loss of $11.3 million;
  • Reported non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $94.2 million;
  • Reported Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $73.0 million and non-GAAP Cash Flow Available for Distribution and Reinvestment (“CAD”) of $46.6 million;
  • Paid a second quarter 2021 cash distribution of $0.36 per share on CODI's common shares in July 2021;
  • Declared quarterly cash distributions of $0.453125 per share on the Company's 7.250% Series A Preferred Shares, $0.4921875 per share on the Company's 7.875% Series B Preferred Shares, and $0.4921875 per share on the Company's 7.875% Series C Preferred Shares (the “Preferred Distributions”). The Preferred Distributions are payable on July 30, 2021; and
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter, entered into a definitive agreement to sell Liberty Safe for $147.5 million.  

“We are pleased to have delivered our second consecutive quarter of record operating results and have once again raised our 2021 annual guidance,” said Elias Sabo, CEO of Compass Diversified. “Our performance is a testament to the ongoing strength in our branded consumer businesses, the incredible execution of our subsidiary management teams and our team’s success identifying, acquiring and investing in a diverse portfolio of high-quality companies. The anticipated sale of our Liberty Safe subsidiary underscores the benefits of our differentiated model for unlocking significant value for shareholders.”

Mr. Sabo continued, “Our permanent capital structure enables us to remain both disciplined and opportunistic in evaluating opportunities within and outside of our portfolio of leading middle market businesses. This flexible approach has benefited CODI over the last few years in particular, and we believe will continue to differentiate us in the second half of 2021 and beyond.”

Mr. Sabo concluded, “During the quarter we also continued the process to potentially allow CODI to be taxed as a corporation, rather than a partnership. If approved by our shareholders during our special meeting on August 3rd, we believe this change would present a significant opportunity to expand CODI’s shareholder base, further lower our cost of capital and provide greater long-term value for shareholders.”

Operating Results

Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $487.4 million, as compared to $333.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $11.3 million, as compared to loss of $7.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. CODI recorded a loss on debt extinguishment during the quarter of $33.3 million in connection with the debt refinancing transaction completed on April 1, 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below) for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $94.2 million, as compared to $49.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to the prior year period, was primarily a result of CODI’s 2020 acquisitions of BOA and Marucci, as well as strong performance by the Company’s branded consumer companies.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, CODI reported Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $73.0 million, as compared to Cash Provided by Operating Activities of $54.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

CODI reported CAD (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below) of $46.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, as compared to $13.5 million for the prior year's comparable quarter. CODI's CAD is calculated after taking into account all interest expenses, cash taxes paid, preferred distributions and maintenance capital expenditures, and includes the operating results of each of our businesses for the periods during which CODI owned them. However, CAD excludes the gains from monetizing interests in CODI's subsidiaries, which have totaled over $1.0 billion since going public in 2006.

CODI's weighted average number of shares outstanding for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was 64.9 million, and for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was 62.8 million.

As of June 30, 2021, CODI had approximately $110.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, no outstanding borrowings on its revolver and $1.0 billion outstanding in 5.250% Senior Notes due 2029.

The Company has no significant debt maturities until 2029 and had net borrowing availability of approximately $600 million on June 30, 2021 under its revolving credit facility.

Second Quarter 2021 Distributions

On July 2, 2021, CODI's Board of Directors (the “Board”) declared a second quarter distribution of $0.36 per share on the Company's common shares. The cash distribution was paid on July 22, 2021 to all holders of record of common shares as of July 15, 2021. Since its IPO in 2006, CODI has paid a cumulative distribution of $21.1152 per common share.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.453125 per share on the Company’s 7.250% Series A Preferred Shares (the “Series A Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series A Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, April 30, 2021, up to, but excluding, July 30, 2021. The distribution for such period will be paid on July 30, 2021 to all holders of record of Series A Preferred Shares as of July 15, 2021.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.4921875 per share on the Company’s 7.875% Series B Preferred Shares (the “Series B Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series B Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, April 30, 2021, up to, but excluding, July 30, 2021. The distribution for such period will be paid on July 30, 2021 to all holders of record of Series B Preferred Shares as of July 15, 2021.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.4921875 per share on the Company’s 7.875% Series C Preferred Shares (the “Series C Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series C Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, April 30, 2021, up to, but excluding, July 30, 2021. The distribution for such period will be paid on July 30, 2021 to all holders of record of Series C Preferred Shares as of July 15, 2021.

Guidance Update

As a result of the strong financial performance in the first six months of the year, as well as the Company’s expectations for the remainder of 2021, the Company expects its current subsidiaries to produce consolidated Adjusted EBITDA (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below) for the full calendar year of 2021 of between $350 million and $370 million. This estimate is based on the summation of CODI’s expectations for its current subsidiaries in 2021, absent additional acquisitions or divestitures, and excludes corporate expenses such as interest expense, management fees and corporate overhead.   Excluding Liberty Safe, in anticipation of its sale, CODI expects to produce consolidated subsidiary Adjusted EBITDA for the full calendar year of 2021 of between $325 million and $345 million.   In addition, CODI’s Payout Ratio (see “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below), defined as its prior year's annual distribution to common shareholders divided by the Company’s 2021 estimate for CAD, is anticipated to be between 65% and 55%.

Tax Structure Update

As previously disclosed, Compass Diversified Holdings (the “Trust”) is pursuing a potential change in its tax classification. On June 23, 2021, the Trust and Compass Group Diversified Holdings LLC (the “Company”) issued a definitive proxy statement requesting shareholder approval to amend their governing documents to allow the Trust to “check-the-box” to elect to be treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The shareholder meeting will be held on August 3, 2021. If the amendments are approved, we anticipate that the Company, acting through the Board of Directors, will cause the Trust to elect to be treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes effective late in the third quarter of 2021 or early in the fourth quarter of 2021. We will provide an update on the results of the shareholder meeting as soon as reasonably practical following the conclusion of the meeting. Please refer to the definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 23, 2021 for additional information related to the potential tax re-classification.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure used by the Company to assess its performance. We have reconciled Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss) on the attached schedules. We consider Net Income (Loss) to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and reflects important financial measures as it excludes the effects of items which reflect the impact of long-term investment decisions, rather than the performance of near-term operations. When compared to Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA is limited in that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capital assets used in generating revenues of our businesses or the non-cash charges associated with impairments, as well as certain cash charges. This presentation also allows investors to view the performance of our businesses in a manner similar to the methods used by us and the management of our businesses, provides additional insight into our operating results and provides a measure for evaluating targeted businesses for acquisition. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is also useful in measuring our ability to service debt and other payment obligations.

CAD is a non-GAAP measure used by the Company to assess its performance, as well as its ability to sustain quarterly distributions. We have reconciled CAD to Net Income (Loss) and Cash Flow from Operating Activities on the attached schedules. We consider Net Income (Loss) and Cash Flow from Operating Activities to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to CAD.

CAD is calculated after taking into account all interest expense, cash taxes paid and maintenance capital expenditures, and includes the operating results of each of our businesses for the periods during which CODI owned them. We believe that CAD provides investors additional information to enable them to evaluate our performance and ability to make anticipated quarterly distributions.

Payout Ratio is a non-GAAP measure defined as our prior year's annual distribution to common shareholders divided by our CAD. We believe the Payout Ratio provides investors additional information to enable them to evaluate our performance and our ability to sustain quarterly distributions.

In reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K, we have not reconciled 2021 Adjusted EBITDA or 2021 Payout Ratio (which requires an estimate of 2021 CAD) to their comparable GAAP measure because we do not provide guidance on Net Income (Loss), Cash Flow Provided by Operating Activities or the applicable reconciling items as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, these items. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

None of Adjusted EBITDA, CAD nor Payout Ratio is meant to be a substitute for GAAP measures and may be different from or otherwise inconsistent with non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
