LEXINGTON, Ky., Nov. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Valvoline Inc. (NYSE: VVV), a trusted leader in preventive automotive maintenance delivering quick and convenient service, today reported financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2022. All comparisons in this press release are made to the same prior-year period unless otherwise noted. Refer to the Reporting Changes and Basis of Presentation sections below for additional information on continuing and discontinued operations presentation. Prior periods have been recast on a consistent basis.

"We see significant strength in our preventive maintenance service model with system-wide store sales growing 20% to nearly $2.4 billion in fiscal 2022," said Sam Mitchell, CEO. "These results were driven by a nearly 14% increase in system-wide same-store sales – highlighting our 16th straight year of growth – and an increase of 8% in our system-wide store count to more than 1,700 units.

"The sale of the Global Products business remains on track with the close expected in early calendar year 2023. As a pure-play automotive retail service provider, Valvoline's strategy is to continue growing our preventive maintenance business through ongoing improvements in service performance and investments in network expansion, while continuing to develop capabilities for an evolving car parc.

"The additional benefits of the separation are clear: we expect to optimize our capital structure using the net proceeds from the transaction and enhance our capital allocation. To that end, our board has approved a $1.6 billion share repurchase authorization. Combined with our growth strategy, we are excited about the future and the compelling opportunities to drive long-term shareholder value."

The financial metrics presented above reflect Retail Services historical segment results; refer to Basis of Presentation for further details on results on a continuing operations basis. Refer to Key Business Measures, Use of Non-GAAP Measures, and Tables 4, 5 and 9, Retail Services operating, store  and historical segment information, for a description of the metrics presented above.

Fiscal 2022 sales for the former Retail Services segment increased 22% to $1.5 billion, as expected, driven by system-wide SSS growth of 13.7% and system-wide unit growth of 8%. Increased transactions – demonstrating continued share gains – and expansion of average ticket – highlighting pricing power and ongoing premium mix shift – both contributed significantly and nearly equally to strong SSS performance. Unit additions of 121 stores included an increase of 71 company-operated stores and 50 franchised locations. Adjusted EBITDA grew 11% to $421.6 million on a historical segment basis, as pricing actions began to offset significant inflationary pressure on product and labor costs. Incremental pricing taken in Q4 expanded margins on a per-transaction basis and is expected to normalize margin percentage by the end of fiscal Q1 2023.

Reporting Changes

As previously announced on August 1, 2022, Valvoline signed a definitive agreement to sell its Global Products business. The announcement resulted in the former Global Products segment being classified as discontinued operations, with the Retail Services segment becoming the Company's continuing operations. The impact of these changes was primarily the following:

  • Indirect expense realignment — assignment of all indirect expenses, including previously unallocated corporate costs, to the appropriate business;
  • Supply agreement markup — reflection of the agreed upon markup in the product supply arrangement with discontinued operations; and
  • Agency accounting treatment — recognition of product sales to franchisees and independent operators is reflected using agency accounting.

Previous periods have been recast on a consistent basis of presentation. Results of continuing operations are comparable to those previously discussed on a pro forma basis at the time of the announcement.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

  • Total debt and net debt of approximately $1.7 billion
  • Full-year consolidated cash flow from operations of $284.2 million and free cash flow of $125.3 million
  • Returned $231.8 million in cash to shareholders via share repurchases and dividends, including $61.2 million in the fourth quarter

Outlook

"We're entering fiscal 2023 with strong momentum," said Mitchell. "We expect to continue driving same-store sales growth by winning new customers and expanding average ticket. We expect to continue expanding our network of conveniently located stores, including a renewed focus on franchise development over time. With the combination of same-store sales and unit increases, we anticipate 14% to 18% top line growth in fiscal 2023. Adjusted EBITDA is forecast to grow 17% to 24% to $370 million to $390 million as margin leverage improves."

Mitchell continued, "Our business is resilient, highlighting the non-discretionary nature of preventive maintenance and positioning us well for future growth. Our key business drivers of miles driven and an expanding car parc exhibit low cyclicality. Our performance in previous recessionary environments gives us confidence in achieving our fiscal 2023 guidance and long-range targets. We continue making strategic investments to expand further into fleets and to broaden our service offerings as vehicle powertrains evolve."

Valvoline's outlook for adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and the adjusted effective tax rate are non-GAAP financial measures that are expected to be impacted by items affecting comparability. Valvoline is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measures estimated for fiscal 2023 without unreasonable efforts, as the Company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact these GAAP measures in fiscal 2023 but would not impact non-GAAP adjusted results.

$1.6 Billion Share Repurchase Authorization

The company also announced today that its board of directors approved a new share repurchase authorization of $1.6 billion. The board of directors approved the share repurchase authorization to effectuate a significant return of capital to shareholders of a substantial portion of the expected net proceeds from the sale of the Global Products business. The Company generally expects to repurchase shares of its common stock up to the full amount of the authorization within 18 months of the closing of the Global Products sale. However, the timing and amount of any repurchases of common stock will be solely at the discretion of the Company and is subject to general business and market conditions, including closing the Global Products sale, as well as other factors, including legal and regulatory restrictions. The new share repurchase authorization is in addition to Valvoline's $300 million share repurchase authorization announced in May 2021, of which $85.5 million remained as of Nov. 11, 2022.

Conference Call Webcast

Valvoline will host a live audio webcast of its fiscal fourth quarter 2022 conference call at 8 a.m. ET on Tuesday, November 15, 2022. The webcast and supporting materials will be accessible through Valvoline's website at http://investors.valvoline.com. Following the live event, an archived version of the webcast and supporting materials will be available.

Basis of Presentation

In all periods presented herein, the assets and liabilities associated with the Global Products disposal group have been classified as held for sale within the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and its operations have been classified as discontinued operations within the Statements of Consolidated Income and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Unless otherwise noted, balances and activity disclosed herein relate solely to the Company's continuing operations.

As a result of classifying the former Global Products reportable segment as a discontinued operation, the Company has determined that it now operates a single reportable segment as resources are allocated and performance assessed on a consolidated basis for the continuing operations.

Key Business Measures

Valvoline tracks its operating performance and manages its business using certain key measures, including system-wide, company-operated and franchised store counts and SSS; and system-wide store sales. Management believes these measures are useful to evaluating and understanding Valvoline's operating performance and should be considered as supplements to, not substitutes for, Valvoline's sales and operating income, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Net revenues are influenced by the number of service center stores and the business performance of those stores. Stores are considered open upon acquisition or opening for business. Temporary store closings remain in the respective store counts with only permanent store closures reflected in the activity and end of period store counts. SSS is defined as net revenues by U.S. stores (company-operated, franchised and the combination of these for system-wide SSS), with new stores, including franchised conversions, excluded from the metric until the completion of their first full fiscal year in operation as this period is generally required for new store sales levels to begin to normalize.

Net revenues are limited to sales at company-operated stores, in addition to royalties and other fees from independent franchised and Express Care stores. Although Valvoline does not recognize store-level sales from franchised stores as net revenues in its Statements of Consolidated Income, management believes system-wide and franchised SSS comparisons, store counts, and total system-wide store sales are useful to assess market position relative to competitors and overall store and operating performance.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, certain items herein are presented on an adjusted basis. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, the financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP information used by management may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because of differing methods used in calculating such measures.

The following non-GAAP measures are included herein: EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and earnings per share, free cash flow, and discretionary free cash flows. Refer to the tables herein for management's definition of each non-GAAP measure and reconciliation to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure.

Management believes the use of non-GAAP measures provides a useful supplemental presentation of Valvoline's operating performance and allows for transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating the business and measuring performance. Management believes EBITDA measures provide a meaningful supplemental presentation of Valvoline's operating performance between periods on a comparable basis due to the depreciable assets associated with the nature of the Company's operations, as well as income tax and interest costs related to Valvoline's tax and capital structures, respectively.

Adjusted profitability measures enable comparison of financial trends and results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of certain unusual, infrequent or non-operational activity not directly attributable to the underlying business, which management believes impacts the comparability of operational results between periods ("key items"). Key items are often related to legacy matters or market-driven events considered by management to not be reflective of the ongoing operating performance. Key items may consist of adjustments related to: legacy businesses, including the separation from Valvoline's former parent company and associated impacts of related activity and indemnities; the separation of Valvoline's businesses; significant acquisitions or divestitures; restructuring-related matters; tax reform legislation; debt extinguishment and modification costs; and other matters that are non-operational or unusual in nature, including the following: 

  • Net pension and other postretirement plan expense/income - includes several elements impacted by changes in plan assets and obligations that are primarily driven by changes in the debt and equity markets, as well as those that are predominantly legacy in nature and related to prior service to the Company from employees (e.g., retirees, former employees and current employees with frozen benefits). These elements include (i) interest cost, (ii) expected return on plan assets, (iii) actuarial gains and losses, and (iv) amortization of prior service costs and credits. Significant factors that can contribute to changes in these elements include changes in discount rates used to remeasure pension and other postretirement obligations on an annual basis or upon a qualifying remeasurement, differences between actual and expected returns on plan assets, and other changes in actuarial assumptions, such as the life expectancy of plan participants. Accordingly, management considers that these elements may be more reflective of changes in current conditions in global financial markets (in particular, interest rates), outside the operational performance of the business, and are also primarily legacy amounts that are not directly related to the underlying business and do not have an immediate, corresponding impact on the compensation and benefits provided to eligible employees for current service. Adjusted profitability measures include the costs of benefits provided to employees for current service, including pension and other postretirement service costs.
  • Changes in the last-in, first out (LIFO) inventory reserve - charges or credits recognized in Cost of sales to value certain lubricant inventories at the lower of cost or market using the LIFO method. During inflationary or deflationary pricing environments, the application of LIFO can result in variability of the cost of sales recognized each period as the most recent costs are matched against current sales, while preceding costs are retained in inventories. LIFO adjustments are determined based on published prices, which are difficult to predict and largely dependent on future events. The application of LIFO can impact comparability and enhance the lag period effects between changes in inventory costs and related pricing adjustments.

Management uses free cash flow and discretionary free cash flow as additional non-GAAP metrics of cash flow generation. By including capital expenditures and certain other adjustments, as applicable, management is able to provide an indication of the ongoing cash being generated that is ultimately available for both debt and equity holders as well as other investment opportunities. Free cash flow includes the impact of capital expenditures, providing a supplemental view of cash generation. Discretionary free cash flow includes maintenance capital expenditures, which are routine uses of cash that are necessary to maintain the Company's operations and provides a supplemental view of cash flow generation to maintain operations before discretionary investments in growth. Free cash flow and discretionary free cash flow have certain limitations, including that they do not reflect adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows, such as mandatory debt repayments.
