Select Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Items

The Company's working capital and cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2019 were $470.8 million and $130.2 million, respectively. Total inventories decreased 11.5% to $1.38 billion as compared to December 31, 2018, driven by a 14.1% decrease in new RV inventory and 17.6% decrease in products, parts, accessories and miscellaneous inventory, partially offset by a 31.2% increase in used RV inventory. At September 30, 2019, the Company had $1.15 billion of term loans outstanding under the Senior Secured Credit Facility, $20.0 million outstanding under the Real Estate Facility, $693.9 million of floor plan notes payable under the Floor Plan Facility and $46.3 million of revolving lines of credit borrowings.

On October 8, 2019, FR entered into a Second Amendment to the Seventh Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”). The Amendment reduces the total commitment under the Floor Plan Facility to $1.380 billion and extends the maturity date of the Floor Plan Facility from December 12, 2020 to March 15, 2023, among other immaterial changes.

Restructuring and Long-lived Asset Impairment

Restructuring

On September 3, 2019, the Board of Directors of CWH approved a plan to strategically shift its business away from locations where the Company does not have the ability or where it is not feasible to sell and/or service RVs (the “2019 Strategic Shift”). As of September 3, 2019, the Company operated 37 locations that do not sell and/or service RVs but sell an assortment of outdoor lifestyle products (the “Outdoor Lifestyle Locations”), and an additional five Outdoor Lifestyle Locations that were previously closed or had not opened as of that date. In addition, the Company operated seven specialty retail locations operated by TheHouse.com, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

Of the Outdoor Lifestyle Locations operating at September 3, 2019, the Company closed three locations during September 2019 and currently expects to either sell, divest, repurpose, relocate or close 28 of the remaining Outdoor Lifestyle Locations, at which sales and/or service of RVs cannot be performed, and two of the seven specialty retail locations operated by TheHouse.com. The Company was able to, or is in the process of, acquiring and/or obtaining the developmental consents, approvals and permits necessary for the sale and/or service of RVs at six of the Outdoor Lifestyle Locations. As part of the 2019 Strategic Shift, the Company has evaluated the impact on the Company’s supporting infrastructure and operations, which included rationalizing inventory levels and composition, closing one of its distribution centers, and realigning other resources. The Company expects the majority of the store closures and/or divestitures related to the 2019 Strategic Shift to be completed by January 31, 2020. The Company will have a reduction of headcount and labor costs for those locations that are sold, divested or closed and the Company expects to incur material charges associated with the activities contemplated under the 2019 Strategic Shift. In connection with the 2019 Strategic Shift, the Company expects to incur costs relating to one-time employee termination benefits of $1.0 million, contract termination costs of between $10.0 million and $15.0 million, incremental inventory reserve charges of $27.3 million, and other associated costs of between $4.0 million and $6.0 million. The following table details the costs incurred associated with the 2019 Strategic Shift (in thousands):

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, costs of approximately $170,000 were included in costs applicable to revenue - products, services and other, and $66,000 were included in selling, general, and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Long-lived Asset Impairment

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, the Company had indicators of impairment of the long-lived assets for certain of its locations, primarily those locations discussed above related to the 2019 Strategic Shift. After performing the long-lived asset impairment test for these locations, the Company determined that 38 locations had long-lived assets that were impaired. Of these 38 locations with long-lived assets that were impaired, two locations were unrelated to the 2019 Strategic Shift, 26 locations were Outdoor Lifestyle Locations that were operating at September 30, 2019, seven locations were Outdoor Lifestyle Locations that were not open as of September 30, 2019, and three locations were specialty retail locations operated by TheHouse.com. The calculated long-lived asset impairment charge was allocated to each of the categories of long-lived assets at each location pro rata based on the long-lived assets’ carrying values, except that individual assets cannot be impaired below their individual fair values when that fair value can be determined without undue cost and effort. For most of these locations, the operating lease right-of-use assets and furniture and fixtures were written down to their individual fair values and the remaining impairment charge was allocated to the remaining long-lived assets up to the fair value estimated on these assets based on liquidation value estimates.

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recorded long-lived asset impairment charges relating to leasehold improvements, furniture and equipment, and operating lease right-of-use assets of $16.9 million, $23.7 million, and $9.4 million, respectively. Of the $50.0 million long-lived asset impairment charge during the three months ended September 30, 2019, $48.3 million related to the 2019 Strategic Shift discussed above.

Revisions for Correction of Immaterial Errors

In connection with the preparation of the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company identified errors in its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 that related primarily to i) the cancellation reserve for certain of its finance and insurance offerings within the former Dealership segment in other current liabilities and other long-term liabilities, ii) the calculation of the Tax Receivable Agreement liability that arose from transactions in 2017, iii) the classification in the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows of non-cash capital expenditures included in accounts payable and non-cash leasehold improvements paid by lessor in other, net, and iv) the adoption of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) No. 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”) on January 1, 2018. The Company corrected the errors in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018. The Company believes the correction of the errors is immaterial to the previously issued Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Basic, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Diluted, Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Basic, and Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Diluted (collectively the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"). We believe that these Non-GAAP Financial Measures, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to the key metrics we use in our financial and operational decision making. These Non-GAAP Financial Measures are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the Company’s industry. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by any items adjusted for in these Non-GAAP Financial Measures. In evaluating these Non-GAAP Financial Measures, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of those adjusted in this presentation. The Non-GAAP Financial Measures that we use are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define “EBITDA” as net income before other interest expense, net (excluding floor plan interest expense), provision for income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA further adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include, among other things, loss and expense on debt restructure, long-lived asset impairment, loss on disposal of assets, equity-based compensation, Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment, Gander Outdoors pre-opening costs, restructuring costs related to the 2019 Strategic Shift, and other unusual or one-time items. We define “Adjusted EBITDA Margin” as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by our competitors, because not all companies and analysts calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the same manner. We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Management believes that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by including these Non-GAAP Financial Measures as a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations.

The following table reconciles EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which are net (loss) income and net (loss) income margin, respectively:

(c)

Represents an adjustment to eliminate the losses and gains on disposal and sales of various assets and other expense, net.

 

(d)

Represents non-cash equity-based compensation expense relating to employees and directors of the Company.

 

(e)

Represents an adjustment to eliminate the loss on remeasurement of the Tax Receivable Agreement primarily due to changes in our effective income tax rate and the transfer of certain assets from GSS to CWI.

 

(f)

Represents pre-opening store costs associated with the Gander Outdoors store openings in 2018, which is comprised of 1) Gander Outdoors-specific corporate and retail overhead, 2) distribution center expenses, and 3) store-level startup expenses. Based on the nature of the acquisition through a bankruptcy auction and the large quantity of retail locations opened in 2018 in a very compressed timeframe, the Company does not deem the pre-opening store costs for the initial rollout of Gander Outdoors locations to be normal, recurring charges. The Company does not intend to adjust for pre-opening store costs other than for the initial rollout of Gander Outdoors.

 

(g)

Represents restructuring costs relating to our 2019 Strategic Shift. These restructuring costs include one-time employee termination benefits, contract termination costs, incremental inventory reserve charges, and other associated costs.

Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. and Adjusted Earnings Per Share

We define “Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Basic” as net income attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include, among other things, loss and expense on debt restructure, long-lived asset impairment, loss on disposal of assets, equity-based compensation, Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment, Gander Outdoors pre-opening costs, restructuring costs related to the 2019 Strategic Shift, other unusual or one-time items, the income tax expense effect of these adjustments, and the effect of net income attributable to non-controlling interests from these adjustments.

We define “Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Diluted” as Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Basic adjusted for the reallocation of net income attributable to non-controlling interests from stock options and restricted stock units, if dilutive, or the assumed exchange, if dilutive, of all outstanding common units in CWGS, LLC for shares of newly-issued Class A common stock of Camping World Holdings, Inc.

We define “Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Basic” as Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. - Basic divided by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding. We define “Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Diluted” as Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Diluted divided by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding, assuming (i) the exchange of all outstanding common units in CWGS, LLC for newly-issued shares of Class A common stock of Camping World Holdings, Inc., if dilutive, and (ii) the dilutive effect of stock options and restricted stock units, if any. We present Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Basic, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Diluted, Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Basic, and Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Diluted because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and we believe that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by including these Non GAAP financial measures as a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations.

The following table reconciles Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Basic, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc. – Diluted, Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Basic, and Adjusted Earnings Per Share – Diluted to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income attributable to Camping World Holdings, Inc., in the case of the Adjusted Net Income non-GAAP financial measures, and weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding – basic, in the case of the Adjusted Earnings Per Share non-GAAP financial measures:

(a)

Represents the loss and expense incurred on debt restructure and financing expense incurred from the Third Amendment to the Credit Agreement in 2018.

 

(b)

Represents the current and deferred income tax expense effect of the above adjustments, many of which are related to entities with full valuation allowances for which no tax benefit can be currently recognized. This assumption uses an effective tax rate of 25.3% for the adjustments for 2019 and 2018, which represents the estimated tax rate that would apply had the above adjustments been included in the determination of our non-GAAP metric.

 

(c)

Represents long-lived asset impairment charges related to the RV and Outdoor Retail segment, which primarily relate to locations affected by the 2019 Strategic Shift.

 

(d)

Represents an adjustment to eliminate the losses and gains on disposals and sales of various assets and other expense, net.

 

(e)

Represents non-cash equity-based compensation expense relating to employees and directors of the Company.

 

(f)

Represents an adjustment to eliminate the loss on remeasurement of the Tax Receivable Agreement primarily due to changes in our effective income tax rate and the transfer of certain assets from GSS to CWI.

 

(g)

Represents pre-opening store costs associated with the Gander Outdoors store openings, which is comprised of 1) Gander Outdoors-specific corporate and retail overhead, 2) distribution center expenses, and 3) store-level startup expenses. The Company incurred significant costs related to the initial rollout of Gander Outdoors locations, which was substantially complete by December 31, 2018. Based on the nature of the acquisition through a bankruptcy auction and the large quantity of retail locations opened and to be opened in a very compressed timeframe, the Company does not deem the pre-opening store costs for the initial rollout of Gander Outdoors locations to be normal, recurring charges. The Company does not intend to adjust for pre-opening store costs other than for the initial rollout of Gander Outdoors.

 

(h)

Represents restructuring costs relating to our 2019 Strategic Shift. These restructuring costs include one-time employee termination benefits, contract termination costs, incremental inventory reserve charges, and other associated costs.

 

(i)

Represents the adjustment to net income attributable to non-controlling interests resulting from the above adjustments that impact the net income of CWGS, LLC. This adjustment uses the non-controlling interest’s weighted average ownership of CWGS, LLC of 58.0% and 58.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and 58.1% and 58.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

(j)

Represents the reallocation of net income attributable to non-controlling interests from the impact of the assumed change in ownership of CWGS, LLC from stock options, restricted stock units, and/or common units of CWGS, LLC.

 

(k)

Represents the income tax expense effect of the above adjustment for reallocation of net income attributable to non-controlling interests. This assumption uses an effective tax rate of 25.3% for the adjustments for 2019 and 2018.

 

(l)

Represents the impact to the denominator for stock options, restricted stock units, and/or common units of CWGS, LLC.

 

(m)

The below amounts have not been considered in our adjusted earnings per share – diluted amounts as the effect of these items are anti-dilutive.

 

(n)

Represents adjustments to reflect the income tax benefit of losses of consolidated C-corporations that under the Company’s current equity structure cannot be used against the income of other consolidated subsidiaries of CWGS, LLC. Subsequent to the exchange of all common units in CWGS, LLC, the Company believes certain actions could be taken such that the C-corporations’ losses could offset income of other consolidated subsidiaries. The adjustment reflects the income tax benefit assuming effective tax rate of 25.3% during 2019 and 2018, for the losses experienced by the consolidated C-corporations for which valuation allowances have been recorded. No assumed release of valuation allowance established for previous periods are included in these amounts.

Prior to our Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2018, we had calculated adjusted earnings per share on a fully exchanged basis regardless of whether the common units in CWGS, LLC were dilutive. That calculation will no longer be presented, however, we have provided anti-dilutive amounts in the table above, when applicable.

Uses and Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management and our board of directors use the Non-GAAP financial measures:

  • as a measurement of operating performance because they assist us in comparing the operating performance of our business on a consistent basis, as they remove the impact of items not directly resulting from our core operations;
  • for planning purposes, including the preparation of our internal annual operating budget and financial projections;
  • to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of our operational strategies; and
  • to evaluate our capacity to fund capital expenditures and expand our business.

By providing these Non-GAAP financial measures, together with reconciliations, we believe we are enhancing investors’ understanding of our business and our results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well we are executing our strategic initiatives. In addition, our Senior Secured Credit Facilities use EBITDA to measure our compliance with covenants such as consolidated leverage ratio. The Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to, or a substitute for net income or other financial statement data presented in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this press release as indicators of financial performance. Some of the limitations are:

  • such measures do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • such measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • some of such measures do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • some of such measures do not reflect our tax expense or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in our industry may calculate such measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Due to these limitations, the Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using these Non-GAAP Financial Measures only supplementally. As noted in the tables above, certain of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures include adjustments for loss and expense on debt restructure, long-lived asset impairment, loss on disposal of assets, equity-based compensation, Tax Receivable Agreement liability, Gander Outdoors pre-opening costs, restructuring costs related to the 2019 Strategic Shift, other unusual or one-time items, and the income tax expense effect described above, as applicable. It is reasonable to expect that certain of these items will occur in future periods. However, we believe these adjustments are appropriate because the amounts recognized can vary significantly from period to period, do not directly relate to the ongoing operations of our business and complicate comparisons of our internal operating results and operating results of other companies over time. Each of the normal recurring adjustments and other adjustments described in this paragraph and in the reconciliation tables above help management with a measure of our core operating performance over time by removing items that are not related to day-to-day operations
