CAMP HILL, Pa., June 24, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) today reported operating results for its first fiscal quarter ended May 29, 2021.

For the first quarter, the company reported net loss from continuing operations of $13.1 million, or $0.24 loss per share, Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $20.9 million, or $0.38 income per share, and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $138.9 million, or 2.3 percent of revenues.

"We are pleased with our first quarter results, as we delivered adjusted EBITDA at the top end of our guidance range and continued our extraordinary efforts to vaccinate Americans against COVID-19," said Heyward Donigan, president and chief executive officer, Rite Aid. "As a result of the tireless efforts and dedication of our teams, I am proud to announce that we delivered nearly 4.7 million COVID-19 vaccines in the first quarter. We have now provided over 6 million COVID-19 vaccines since we began administering shots late last fiscal year."

"Our results improved sequentially through the first quarter, and we have momentum in several areas of our business as the country began taking meaningful steps towards a post-pandemic world. With a healthier economy and the reopening of the communities we serve, combined with the execution of our RxEvolution strategy, we are well positioned to deliver on our strategic priorities. I am very proud of our over 50,000 associates and the progress we’re making in our journey to revitalize our brand and elevate the crucial role that pharmacy plays in the health of our customers."

Revenues from continuing operations for the quarter were $6.16 billion compared to revenues from continuing operations of $6.03 billion in the prior year’s quarter. The 2.2 percent increase in revenues was driven by growth at the Retail Pharmacy Segment, partially offset by a decline at the Pharmacy Services Segment.

Net loss from continuing operations was $13.1 million, or $0.24 per share, compared to last year’s first quarter net loss from continuing operations of $72.7 million, or $1.36 per share. The improvement in net loss is due primarily to improved operating results in the Retail Pharmacy Segment, higher intangible asset impairment charges in the prior year first quarter, and lower restructuring-related costs as a result of last year’s merchandise optimization program. These benefits were partially offset by litigation settlements in the current quarter, a lower LIFO credit, and an increase in income tax expense.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $138.9 million or 2.3% of revenues, compared to last year’s first quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $107.4 million or 1.8% of revenues. The improvement in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by an increase in gross profit resulting from an increase in prescription volume in our Retail Pharmacy Segment.

Retail Pharmacy Segment revenues from continuing operations increased 5.5 percent over the prior year quarter, driven by an increase in same store sales and the inclusion of Bartell’s results this quarter. Same store sales from continuing operations for the first quarter increased 1.4 percent over the prior year period, consisting of an 8.2 percent increase in pharmacy sales and a 12.0 percent decrease in front-end sales. Front-end same store sales, excluding cigarettes and tobacco products, decreased 11.5 percent, driven by decreases in general cleaning products, sanitizers, wipes, paper products, liquor, and over-the-counter products resulting from the pandemic driven surge in the prior year quarter. The number of prescriptions filled in same stores, adjusted to 30-day equivalents, increased 11.2 percent over the prior year period. In addition to the benefit from COVID-19 vaccinations, other acute prescriptions increased 3 percent and maintenance prescriptions increased 2 percent on a same store basis. Prescription sales from continuing operations accounted for 68.9 percent of total drugstore sales. Total store count at the end of the first quarter was 2,506.

Retail Pharmacy Segment Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $94.9 million, or 2.2 percent of revenues, for the first quarter compared to last year’s first quarter Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $63.0 million, or 1.5 percent of revenues. The improvement in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by an increase in gross profit resulting from higher pharmacy same store sales, partially offset by pharmacy reimbursement rate pressures that were not fully offset by generic drug cost reductions and a decline in front end gross profit as we cycled the impact of the prior year’s COVID-19 buying surge.

Pharmacy Services Segment revenues were $1.9 billion for the quarter, a decrease of 5.3 percent compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily the result of a decrease in lives stemming from the loss of a large customer account and a decrease in Medicare Part D membership.

Pharmacy Services Segment Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $44.0 million, or 2.3 percent of revenues, for the first quarter and was flat to last year’s first quarter Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $44.4 million, or 2.2 percent of revenues. Improvements in the company’s discount card business and good network management were offset by the decline in revenues and an increase in the medical loss ratio tied to the company’s Medicare Part D business.

Outlook for Fiscal 2022

The company’s outlook for fiscal 2022 is based on the following key assumptions:

  • No assumed benefit for additional COVID-19 boosters or for vaccinations of children under 12.

  • Acute scripts and front end OTC sales will be below historical levels as we do not expect a full recovery in cough, cold and flu results.

  • The markets in which our retail stores operate will not be subject to lockdowns caused by COVID-19.

  • Continued reimbursement rate pressure in our retail pharmacy business.

  • A decrease in Elixir revenues due to the loss of a large customer account and the planned reduction in Medicare Part D lives.

  • Improved Elixir EBITDA margin due to continued strong network and rebate management, offset by pressure from an increase in medical loss ratio tied to the company’s Medicare Part D business.

  • Increased investment at Elixir in personnel and technology spend to drive future sales and to develop a more efficient operating platform.

  • Increased investments in retail wages in to drive improved customer satisfaction and revenue.

Total revenues are expected to be between $25.1 billion and $25.5 billion in fiscal 2022. Pharmacy Services Segment revenue is expected to be between $7.9 billion and $8.0 billion (net of any intercompany revenues to the Retail Pharmacy Segment).

Net loss is expected to be between $175 million and $138 million.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $440 million and $480 million.

Adjusted net loss per share is expected to be between $0.79 and $0.24.

Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $300 million.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this release that are not historical, are forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding Rite Aid's outlook and guidance for fiscal 2022; the continued impact of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on Rite Aid’s business; and any assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Words such as "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "predict," "project," "should," and "will" and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, assumptions and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: risks related to the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic, such as the scope and duration of the outbreak, government actions and restrictive measures implemented in response, and other impacts to the business, or on our ability to execute business continuity plans, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; the impact of COVID-19 on our workforce, operations, stores, expenses, and supply chain, and the operations or behaviors of our customers, suppliers and business partners; our ability to successfully implement our RxEvolution and other strategies; the impact of our high level of indebtedness, the ability to refinance such indebtedness on acceptable terms and our ability to satisfy our obligations and the other covenants contained in our debt agreements; outcome of pending or new litigation including related to Opioids, "usual and customary" pricing or other matters; our ability to monetize the CMS receivable created in our Part D business; general competitive, economic, industry, market, political (including healthcare reform) and regulatory conditions (including changes to laws or regulations relating to labor or wages), civil unrest (including any resulting store closures, damage, or loss of inventory), as well as other factors that impact the markets in which we operate; the impact of private and public third-party payers continued reduction in prescription drug reimbursements and efforts to encourage mail order; our ability to manage expenses and our investments in working capital; our ability to achieve the benefits of our efforts to reduce the costs of our generic and other drugs; our ability to achieve cost savings and other benefits of our organizational restructuring within our anticipated timeframe, if at all; the outcome of our continuing efforts to monitor and comply with applicable laws, regulations, policies and procedures; and our ability to partner and have relationships with health plans and health systems.

These and other risks, assumptions and uncertainties are more fully described in Item 1A (Risk Factors) of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in other documents that we file or furnish with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which you are encouraged to read. To the extent that COVID-19 adversely affects our business and financial results, it may also have the effect of heightening many of such risk factors.

Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, you are cautioned not to rely on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made.

The degree to which COVID-19 may adversely affect Rite Aid’s results and operations, including its ability to achieve its outlook for fiscal 2022 guidance, will depend on numerous evolving factors and future developments, which are highly uncertain, including, but not limited to, the duration and spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, its severity, the actions to contain the virus or treat its impact, including the reinstitution of more stringent regulations (including mandatory stay at home orders), and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume. As a result, the impact on Rite Aid’s financial and operating results cannot be reasonably estimated with specificity at this time, but the impact could be material. Rite Aid expressly disclaims any current intention, and assumes no duty, to update publicly any forward-looking statement after the distribution of this release, whether as a result of new information, future events, changes in assumptions or otherwise.

All references to "Company" and "Rite Aid" as used throughout this release refer to Rite Aid Corporation and its affiliates.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rite Aid separately reports financial results on the basis of Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Gross Profit and Adjusted EBITDA SG&A, which are non-GAAP financial measures. See the attached tables for a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), and net income (loss) per diluted share, which are the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share exclude amortization expense, merger and acquisition-related costs, non-recurring litigation settlements, gains or losses on debt modifications and retirements, LIFO adjustments, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, and restructuring-related costs. Rite Aid believes Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share serve as appropriate measures to be used in evaluating the performance of its business and help its investors better compare its operating performance over multiple periods.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) excluding the impact of income taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, LIFO adjustments, charges or credits for facility closing and impairment, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, inventory write-downs related to store closings, gains or losses on debt modifications and retirements, and other items (including stock-based compensation expense, merger and acquisition-related costs, non-recurring litigation settlements, severance, restructuring-related costs, costs related to facility closures, and gain or loss on sale of assets). The add back of LIFO (credit) charge when calculating Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share removes the entire impact of LIFO (credits) charges, and effectively reflects Rite Aid's results as if the company was on a FIFO inventory basis. Rite Aid believes Adjusted EBITDA serves as an appropriate measure in evaluating the performance of its business and helps its investors better compare its operating performance with its competitors.

Adjusted EBITDA Gross Profit includes LIFO adjustments, depreciation and amortization (COGS portion only) and other items. See the attached tables for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA Gross Profit to Revenue, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA SG&A excludes depreciation and amortization (SG&A portion only), stock-based compensation expense, merger and acquisition-related costs, litigation settlements and other items. See the attached tables for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA SG&A to Revenue, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA Gross Profit and Adjusted EBITDA SG&A serve as appropriate measures in evaluating the performance of its business and helps its investors better compare its operating performance with its competitors.
