Strong Revenue Growth with Both Retail and eCommerce up 69% Compared to Third Quarter 2020

BOSTON HEIGHTS, Ohio, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arhaus, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARHS; “Arhaus” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing lifestyle brand and omni-channel retailer of premium home furnishings, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

John Reed, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, commented,

“We are extremely pleased with our third quarter results and underlying trends in our business. During the third quarter, we generated record quarterly revenue and continued to see very strong demand for our products. In the quarter, net revenue increased 68.7%, comparable growth was 61.3%, net and comprehensive income was up 1736.9%, adjusted EBITDA increased 215.3%, and we ended the quarter with 77 total showrooms across 28 states.

“At a time when consumers are investing in their homes and looking for more functional living spaces, our globally curated assortment of hand-crafted products made by leading artisan vendors around the world is clearly resonating with consumers. We have an incredible team of people dedicated to building the Arhaus brand, and we are making investments across the organization to scale our business and capitalize on the strong demand trends. We believe we are in a position to significantly increase our showroom footprint and drive profitable long-term growth.”

Third Quarter 2021 Results

Net revenue increased 68.7% to $203 million, compared to $121 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was driven primarily by increased demand in both Showroom and eCommerce channels as well as the delivery of orders in the backlog as our supply chain begins to catch up with client demand.

Comparable growth(1) in the quarter was 61.3%, compared to a decrease of 3.7% in the third quarter of 2020.

Income from operations increased 281.9% to $16 million, compared to $4 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily driven by the increase in net revenue and associated leverage of fixed costs, partially offset by higher product and transportation costs related to the increased net revenue, higher SG&A expenses to support the growth of the business, higher commissions in our Showrooms related to strong demand, and one-time initial public offering ("IPO") expenses.

Net and comprehensive income of $14 million was a 1736.9% increase compared to $1 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was driven primarily by the above factors as well as decreased interest expense. Net and comprehensive income as a percent of net revenue increased 600 basis points to 7% in the third quarter of 2021, compared to 1% in the third quarter of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 215.3% to $31 million, compared to $10 million in the third quarter of 2020, driven by the factors above. Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net revenue increased 700 basis points to 15% in the third quarter of 2021, compared to 8% in the third quarter of 2020.

Importantly, we continued to invest in our growth in the third quarter by opening a new traditional Showroom in Salem, New Hampshire and a new Design Studio in Burlingame, California. We also relocated our McLean, Virginia showroom to Tyson’s Galleria, deploying our new format. We ended the quarter with 77 total showrooms across 28 states. We also began a 230,000 square foot expansion of our distribution and corporate office facility in Ohio and plan to open another distribution facility in the western U.S. in 2022.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights, as of September 30, 2021

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $149 million, and the Company had no long-term debt. Net merchandise inventory increased 57.9% to $171 million, compared to $108 million as of December 31, 2020.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities was $143 million, compared to $115 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was primarily driven by client deposits resulting from strong demand, partially offset by higher working capital driven by increased inventory to satisfy the higher demand.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $30 million, which includes landlord contributions of approximately $11 million and company-funded capital expenditures(2) of approximately $18 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $11 million, which includes landlord contributions of approximately $10 million and company-funded capital expenditures of approximately $1 million.

Recent Events

Since the end of the third quarter, we completed our IPO. Our shares began trading under the symbol ARHS on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on November 4, 2021. IPO proceeds were used to pay the $64 million exit fee associated with the term loan that was paid off in December 2020, and the balance will provide additional working capital for general corporate purposes.

We also entered into a new $50 million revolving credit facility with Bank of America on November 8, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include adjusted EBITDA which presents operating results on an adjusted basis.

We use non-GAAP measures to help assess the performance of our business, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. In addition to our results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to our investors as they present an informative supplemental view of our results from period to period by removing the effect of non-recurring items. However, our inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items or that the items for which we have made adjustments are unusual or infrequent or will not recur. These non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentations of these measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and can differ significantly from company to company. These measures should only be read together with the corresponding GAAP measures. Please refer to the information included in this release for how we define these non-GAAP measures and for reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.
