Raises Full Year 2021 Guidance

LONG BEACH, Calif., November 09, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Beauty Health Company (“BeautyHealth” or the “Company”; NASDAQ:SKIN), a global category-creator in beauty health leading the charge with its flagship brand HydraFacialTM, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Brent Saunders, BeautyHealth’s Executive Chairman, stated: “We are very pleased with our results this quarter, as well as the strength of our year-to-date performance. Our sales and adjusted EBITDA continued to exceed our expectations and delivered new record results, while we continued to lead through macro challenges and select market closures related to the Delta variant surge. Our strength demonstrates the diversification of our business across channels and geographies, as well as the favorable secular tailwinds that remain strong and we believe are here to stay. We are executing across all key strategic initiatives we laid out for you last December, further enhanced by the acceleration in the consumer shift to health and wellness.”

“As a result of our strong performance to-date combined with our expectations for the fourth quarter, we are raising our top-line guidance for the full year to a range of $245 million to $255 million and adjusted EBITDA to $30 million, barring any deterioration related to COVID-19 trends. Our upward revisions are based on our momentum, and we will continue to invest ahead of our growth to capitalize on the significant opportunity ahead in the category we created,” concluded Mr. Saunders.

Third Quarter 2021 Summary

  • Net sales of $68.1 million increased 97% compared to $34.6 million in Q3 2020 and 72% compared to $39.6 million in Q3 2019, driven by continued strength in the U.S. and EMEA, as well as significant growth in APAC despite the negative impact from the Delta variant.

    • Delivery Systems net sales increased to $36.2 million, compared to $15.9 million in Q3 2020 and $19.0 million in Q3 2019.

    • Consumables net sales increased to $32.0 million, compared to $18.6 million in Q3 2020 and $20.6 million in Q3 2019.

  • Net sales in the Americas region increased to $45.0 million in Q3 2021 compared to $21.2 million in Q3 2020 and $29.8 million in Q3 2019 due to strong trends in the U.S. and Mexico, as markets reopened and consumer demand accelerated. Net sales in the APAC region increased to $10.5 million in Q3 2021 compared to $5.3 million in Q3 2020 and $3.3 million in Q3 2019, due to continued strength in China and Australia despite the partial closure during the quarter due to the Delta variant. Net sales in the EMEA region increased to $12.6 million in Q3 2021 compared to $8.1 million in Q3 2020 and $6.5 million in Q3 2019, due to strength in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and the Middle East.

  • Gross margin increased to 67.6% compared to 60.6% in Q3 2020, and Q3 adjusted gross margin increased to 71.5% compared to 68.3% in Q3 2020. The improvement in gross profit was due to fixed cost leverage from higher than expected sales, improved average selling prices for Delivery Systems, as well as cost savings initiatives, partially offset by higher supply chain and logistics costs. The margin decreased from Q2 2021 by 3.4% due to supply chain challenges and increases in logistics costs, as well as temporary margin drain from transitioning higher carrying inventory value related to the distributor acquisitions. We expect the continued headwinds from global supply chain challenges and inflationary pressures to weigh on margins into 2022. We currently anticipate the higher shipping costs to continue into next year, partially offset by an accretion in margins related to the acquired distributor inventory and pricing initiatives.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $49.7 million in Q3 2021 compared to $17.6 million in Q3 2020, primarily driven by increased sales commissions, personnel-related expenses and marketing spend. We have incurred $1.7 million of public company costs including directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, SOX compliance and additional audit and tax related services in the third quarter.

  • Operating loss was $5.5 million compared to an operating income of $2.8 million in Q3 2020. The operating loss includes non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $5.1 million.

  • Net loss was $215.1 million compared to a net loss of $2.2 million in Q3 2020. Net loss includes the non-cash changes in fair value of both the warrant and earn-out shares liabilities, which totaled $209.9 million. The earn-out shares liability was initially measured as of the date of the consummation of the Business Combination in May 2021 and was settled in 7.5 million shares of Class A Common Stock on July 15, 2021. In Q3 2021, adjusted net income was $2.5 million compared to an adjusted net income of $0.9 million in Q3 2020.

  • Adjusted EBITDA is an important profitability measure that we use to manage our business internally. In Q3 2021, adjusted EBITDA was $5.8 million compared to $7.6 million in Q3 2020. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA is the result of increased sales commissions, personnel-related expenses, marketing spend and public company costs, partially offset by higher sales.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents were $718.6 million as of September 30, 2021 compared to $11.8 million as of September 30, 2020. On September 14, 2021 BeautyHealth issued $750 million of 1.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026.

Net cash flow used in operating activities of $31.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to net cash flow used in operating activities of $12.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The net cash flow used included transaction costs of $32.3 million, related to the Business Combination and convertible notes issuance. Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 totaled $7.1 million.

Warrants

On October 4, 2021, BeautyHealth delivered a Notice of Redemption for all of its outstanding public warrants to purchase shares of BeautyHealth’s Class A common stock. On November 8, 2021, BeautyHealth announced 16,123,235 public warrants were exercised for total cash proceeds of $185.4 million. Following the redemptions, we have approximately 8.4 million private placement warrants and approximately 150 million shares of Class A common stock outstanding.

Outlook

BeautyHealth is raising its outlook to reflect the acceleration of performance in BeautyHealth’s third quarter, momentum in health and wellness, as well as confidence in its business as it executes against its growth plan. The increase assumes no material deterioration in general market conditions or other factors related to COVID-19 trends.

For fiscal 2021, BeautyHealth expects:

  • Net sales of $245 million to $255 million, compared to the prior guidance of $230 million to $240 million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $30 million, compared to the prior guidance of approximately $25 million.

  • Up to $15 million of capital expenditures, which remains unchanged compared to the prior guidance.

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 does not take into account the impact of any unanticipated developments in the business or changes in the operating environment, nor does it take into account any unannounced acquisitions, dispositions or financings during 2021. 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 strains and the uneven global rollout and adoption of vaccines, as well as inflationary headwinds related to higher raw material, shipping and labor costs. BeautyHealth’s outlook assumes a largely reopened global market, which would be negatively impacted if closures or other restrictive measures persist or are reimplemented.

Conference Call

BeautyHealth will host a conference call on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, at 4:30 p.m. ET to review its third quarter financial results. The call may be accessed via live audio webcast through the Investor Relations section of our website at https://investors.beautyhealth.com/ or by dialing (877) 407-9208 (international callers please dial 1 (201) 493-6784), using conference ID 13723615, approximately 10 minutes prior to the start of the call. A replay of the conference call will be available within approximately three hours after the conclusion of the call and can be accessed online at https://investors.beautyhealth.com/.

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 net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted gross profit, and adjusted gross margin for purposes of evaluating ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when reviewed collectively with our GAAP financial information, provide useful supplemental information to investors in assessing our operating performance. These 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 Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are key performance measures that management uses to assess our operating performance. Because adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin facilitate internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis, we use these measures 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 margin to increase over the long-term, as we continue to scale our business and achieve greater leverage in our operating expenses.

We calculate adjusted net income 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; amortization expense; stock-based compensation expense; 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); restructuring costs (including those associated with COVID-19) and the aggregate adjustment for income taxes for the tax effect of the adjustments described above.

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); and restructuring costs (including those associated with COVID-19).

(3) For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 such costs primarily represent one-time retention awards related to the distributor acquisitions. For the three and nine months endedSeptember 30, 2020, such costs primarily represent COVID-19 related restructuring cost of $0.2 million and $2.3 million, respectively, including write-off of expired Consumables, discontinued product lines, human capital and cash management consultants and, to a lesser extent, costs associated with a former warehouse and assembly facility during the transition period.

Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Margin

We use adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin to measure our profitability and ability to scale and leverage the costs of our Delivery Systems and Consumables net sales. The continued growth of our Delivery Systems is expected to allow us to improve our adjusted gross margin, as additional Delivery System units sold will increase our recurring Consumables net sales, which has higher margins.

We believe adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin are useful measures to the Company and our investors to assist in evaluating our operating performance because they provide consistency and direct comparability with our past financial performance and between fiscal periods, as the metrics eliminate the effects of amortization and depreciation, which are non-cash expenses that may fluctuate for reasons unrelated to overall continuing operating performance. Adjusted gross margin has been and will continue to be impacted by a variety of factors, including the product mix, geographic mix, direct vs. indirect mix, the average selling price on Delivery Systems, and new product launches. We expect our adjusted gross margin to fluctuate over time depending on the factors described above.
