LONG BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Beauty Health Company (“BeautyHealth” or the “Company”; NASDAQ:SKIN), a global category-creator in beauty health leading the charge with HydraFacialTM, its flagship brand, today confirmed its fiscal year 2021 outlook prior to attending the ICR conference.
Brent Saunders, BeautyHealth’s Executive Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our growth was resilient despite the emergence of a new COVID variant. As a result of our momentum in the fourth quarter, we expect to report net sales for the year around the high end of our guidance provided in November. Further, we affirm our adjusted EBITDA outlook as we continue to invest in our key strategic initiatives and build a platform and community to fuel future growth. We are well positioned to capitalize on the multiple exciting opportunities available to us in the beauty health category.”
For the 2021 fiscal year, the Company expects to report:
- Net sales around the high end of prior guidance of $245 million to $255 million.
- Adjusted EBITDA in line with prior guidance of approximately $30 million.
BeautyHealth’s achievement of the anticipated results is subject to risks and uncertainties, including those disclosed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The outlook is based upon current estimates and is subject to completion of fiscal and operating closing procedures. In addition, given the uncertainty in the environment in which BeautyHealth is operating, the Company remains cautious of the potential risk for further market closures or other restrictive measures from new COVID-19 variants and the uneven global rollout and adoption of vaccines, as well as inflationary headwinds related to higher raw material, shipping and labor costs.
Liyuan Woo, Chief Financial Officer, will participate virtually in a fireside chat at the 2022 ICR Conference on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at 9:30 am Eastern Time. The presentation will be webcast live over the internet and can be accessed at https://investors.beautyhealth.com/. An archived replay of the webcast will be available following the fireside chat.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to results determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), management utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures such as adjusted EBITDA for purposes of evaluating ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures, when reviewed collectively with our GAAP financial information, provide useful supplemental information to investors in assessing our operating performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP financial information or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP, and may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in its industry, as these other companies may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items.
Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure that management uses to assess our operating performance. Because adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis, we use this measure for business planning purposes.
We also believe this information will be useful for investors to facilitate comparisons of our operating performance and better identify trends in our business. We expect adjusted EBITDA to increase over the long-term, as we continue to scale our business and achieve greater leverage in our operating expenses.
We calculate adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude: change in fair value of public and private placement warrants, change in fair value of earn-out shares liability, other (income), net; interest expense; provision for income taxes; depreciation and amortization expense; stock-based compensation expense; foreign currency gain/loss; management fees incurred from our historical private equity owners; one-time or non-recurring items such as transaction costs (including transactions costs with respect to the business combination in May 2021); and restructuring costs (including those associated with COVID-19).
