Latham Group, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2022 Financial Results
Introduces Full Fiscal Year 2023 Outlook; Provides Guidance for First Quarter Fiscal 2023
LATHAM, N.Y. – March 7, 2023 – Latham Group, Inc. (“Latham” or "the Company") (Nasdaq: SWIM), the largest designer, manufacturer, and marketer of in-ground residential swimming pools in North America, Australia, and New Zealand, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2022 ended December 31, 2022.
Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2022 Highlights:
|·||Net sales of $107.9 million, down 22.3% year-over-year|
|·||Net loss of $19.0 million versus net loss of $6.0 million in the prior year period, representing a 17.6% net loss margin|
|·||Adjusted EBITDA of $4.4 million versus $27.3 million in the prior year period, representing a 4.1% Adjusted EBITDA margin|
Full Year Fiscal 2022 Highlights:
|·||Net sales of $695.7 million, up 10.4% year-over-year|
|·||Net loss of $5.7 million versus net loss of $62.3 million in the prior year, representing a 0.8% net loss margin|
|·||Adjusted EBITDA of $143.3 million, up 2.5% year-over-year, representing a 20.6% Adjusted EBITDA margin|
“We delivered fourth quarter results in line with our expectations, completing our 13th consecutive year of net sales and adjusted EBITDA growth,” said Scott Rajeski, President and Chief Executive Officer of Latham. “In 2022, Latham achieved year-over-year net sales growth across all three of our product lines, including volume growth in fiberglass, while the industry saw U.S. in-ground pool installations decline versus 2021. Our fiscal 2022 performance was enabled by our progress in driving the material conversion from concrete to fiberglass swimming pools, strengthening our supply chain, and driving operational efficiency.”
Mr. Rajeski continued, “Looking ahead, we are confident in our ability to navigate what we anticipate will be a challenging macroenvironment in 2023. We have taken necessary cost reduction actions and continue to execute on our lean and value engineering initiatives. We are partnering closely with our wholesale distribution partners as they normalize their packaged pool inventory levels. Latham continues to be a leader of innovation in the pool industry, highlighted by our digital marketing advancements, the launch of Measure by Latham, expansion of our premium fiberglass model product offering, and the planned opening of our new state-of-the-art fiberglass manufacturing facility in Kingston, Ontario later this year. We continue to see interest in pool ownership as indicated by our website traffic, leads, and dealer feedback. We believe our growth initiatives position us well to capitalize on this demand over time.”
Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results
Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were $107.9 million, down $31.0 million or 22.3%, from the prior year’s fourth quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to volume declines due to the return to historical seasonality, continued destocking of packaged pool inventory in the wholesale distribution channel, and the impact of macroeconomic uncertainty on consumer spending and demand. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $19.3 million, down $23.1 million or 54.4%, from the prior year’s fourth quarter. Gross margin was 17.9%, compared to 30.5% for the prior year period. Gross profit and gross margin were driven by reduced sales, negative fixed cost leverage, and the impact of inflation. Negative fixed cost leverage was driven by volume declines as the result of a return to historical seasonality and continued destocking of packaged pool inventory in the wholesale distribution channel.
Selling, general, and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 decreased to $33.1 million from $47.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, driven primarily by a $12.8 million decrease in stock-based compensation expense to $9.5 million. SG&A as a percentage of net sales decreased to 30.6% from 34.0%. Excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense, SG&A decreased by $1.3 million from the prior year period.
Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $19.0 million, or ($0.17) per share, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or ($0.05) per share, for the prior year’s fourth quarter. Net loss margin was 17.6%, compared to a net loss margin of 4.3% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $4.4 million, down $22.9 million or 84.0%, from the prior year’s fourth quarter primarily driven by reduced sales, negative fixed cost leverage, and the impact of inflation. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 4.1% from 19.7% for the prior year period.
Full Year Fiscal 2022 Results
Net sales for the full year ended December 31, 2022 increased to $695.7 million, up $65.2 million or 10.4%, from the prior year, reflecting net sales growth across all three product lines – in-ground swimming pools, liners, and covers. The net sales increase was primarily attributable to pricing actions to address inflation, partially offset by a decline in packaged pools volume due to continued destocking of inventory in the wholesale distribution channel.
Gross profit for the full year ended December 31, 2022 increased to $216.5 million, up $12.3 million or 6.0%, from the prior year. Gross margin was 31.1%, compared to 32.4% for the prior year, driven by the impact of inflation and negative fixed cost leverage. Negative fixed cost leverage was driven by volume declines, primarily in packaged pools due to continued destocking of inventory in the wholesale distribution channel.
SG&A expenses for the full year ended December 31, 2022 decreased to $146.8 million from $217.8 million in the prior year, driven primarily by a $73.2 million decrease in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. SG&A as a percentage of net sales decreased to 21.1% from 34.5% for the prior year. Excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense, SG&A increased $2.3 million from the prior year.
Net loss for the full year ended December 31, 2022 was $5.7 million, or ($0.05) per share, compared to a net loss of $62.3 million, or ($0.56) per share, in the prior year, driven primarily by a decrease in non-cash stock compensation expense of $78.1 million. Net loss margin for the full year ended December 31, 2022 was 0.8%, compared to a net loss margin of 9.9% for the prior year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the full year ended December 31, 2022 was $143.3 million, up $3.5 million or 2.5%, driven by higher sales levels. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the full year ended December 31, 2022 was 20.6%, compared to 22.2% for the prior year, driven by inflation and negative fixed cost leverage due to volume declines, primarily in packaged pools.
Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Liquidity
As of December 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $32.6 million, $75.0 million undrawn on its revolving credit facility and total debt of $312.9 million.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $32.3 million for the full year ended December 31, 2022 versus $33.7 million in the prior year.
Capital expenditures totaled $10.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $5.7 million in the prior year period. Capital expenditures totaled $39.7 million in the full year ended December 31, 2022 compared to $25.0 million in the prior year period. The increase in capital spending was primarily related to the Company’s fiberglass capacity expansion initiatives, most notably the Kingston manufacturing facility project.
Fiscal 2023 Outlook
Latham is introducing guidance for the full year fiscal 2023 as detailed below. The Company’s financial outlook reflects:
|·||The impact of macroeconomic uncertainty on consumer spending and demand, resulting in anticipated declines in the industry for U.S. new in-ground pool installations;|
|·||Normalization of packaged pool channel inventory in the wholesale distribution channel from elevated levels, which is expected to remain a headwind through at least the first half of 2023;|
|·||Continued progress executing our strategy to drive material conversion from concrete to fiberglass swimming pools;|
|·||Benefits from previously announced cost reduction actions and continuous improvement initiatives; and|
|·||Disciplined capital investments with a focus on the completion of projects for the Kingston, Ontario and Seminole, Oklahoma fiberglass manufacturing facilities.|
|Net Sales||$565 million||$615 million|
|Adjusted EBITDA1||$90 million||$110 million|
|Capital Expenditures||$35 million||$40 million|
The Company is also providing an outlook for first quarter 2023 net sales and adjusted EBTIDA given the return to historical seasonality, the impact of macroeconomic uncertainty on consumers spending and demand, and continued destocking of packaged pool inventory in the wholesale distribution channel from elevated levels. For the first quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company expects to deliver net sales in the range of $120 million to $130 million and adjusted EBITDA1 in the range of $6 million to $10 million as we return to historical seasonality.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We track our non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and manage our underlying financial performance. This news release includes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, which are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of certain costs, losses, and gains that are required to be included in our profit and loss measures under GAAP. Although we believe these measures are useful to investors and analysts for the same reasons it is useful to management, as discussed below, these measures are neither a substitute for, nor superior to, U.S. GAAP financial measures or disclosures. Other companies may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. We have reconciled our historic Adjusted EBITDA to the applicable most comparable GAAP measure, net income (loss), throughout this news release.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are key metrics used by management and our board of directors to assess our financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry, when considered alongside other GAAP measures. We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to supplement GAAP measures of performance to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, to utilize as a significant performance metric in our annual management incentive bonus plan compensation, and to compare our performance against that of other companies using similar measures. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin solely as supplemental disclosures because we believe they allow for a more complete analysis of results of operations and assist investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance, such as (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest expense, (iii) income tax (benefit) expense, (iv) loss (gain) on sale and disposal of property and equipment, (v) restructuring charges, (vi) stock-based compensation expense, (vii) unrealized (gains) losses on foreign currency transactions, (viii) strategic initiative costs, (ix) acquisition and integration related costs, (x) loss on extinguishment of debt, (xi) underwriting fees related to offering of common stock, (xii) the Odessa fire and other such unusual events, (xiii) IPO costs and (xiv) other.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) as a measure of financial performance or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this news release.
There can be no assurance that we will not modify the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin following this offering, and any such modification may be material. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin should not be construed to imply that our future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin at all or may calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin differently and accordingly, are not necessarily comparable to similarly entitled measures of other companies, which reduces the usefulness of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as tools for comparison.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin have their limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin:
|●||do not reflect every expenditure, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;|
|●||do not reflect changes in our working capital needs;|
|●||do not reflect the interest expense, or the amounts necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our outstanding debt;|
|●||do not reflect income tax (benefit) expense, and because the payment of taxes is part of our operations, tax expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to operate;|
|●||do not reflect non-cash stock-based compensation, which will remain a key element of our overall compensation package; and|
|●||do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations.|
Although depreciation and amortization are eliminated in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin do not reflect any costs of such replacements.
