Third-Quarter 2021 Summary

  • Revenue increased 7 percent to $471 million as continued growth in the renewal and direct-to-consumer channels offset an unprecedented challenging real estate channel environment; includes greater contribution from ProConnect and Streem as they continue to expand off a small base
  • Quarterly gross profit margin of 54 percent; increase of approximately 500 basis points over the prior year period due to a lower number of service requests and process improvement benefits
  • Quarterly net income of $76 million; 56 percent increase over the prior year period
  • Record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA of $122 million; 34 percent increase over the prior year period
  • Customer retention of 74 percent; declined from 75 percent in the second quarter of 2021
  • Launched three-year, $400 million share repurchase program; repurchased $25 million in September

Updated Full-Year 2021 Outlook

  • Revenue range updated to $1.59 billion to $1.60 billion
  • Gross margin updated to approximately 50 percent
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) range updated to $310 million to $315 million

“Our vision of redefining home services and becoming a leader in residential repair and maintenance solutions remains as strong as ever,” said Chief Executive Officer Rex Tibbens. “While key initiatives drove improved profitability this quarter, we remain committed to delivering stronger revenue growth in the future. We recognize where we are on our customer service journey and are further increasing our efforts to fundamentally change the customer experience. Our long-term strategy remains solid, and we are developing a strong foundation that will benefit all of our stakeholders in the future.”

“I am extremely pleased with the strength of our third quarter earnings,” said Chief Financial Officer Brian Turcotte. “We delivered an 18 percent increase in gross profit due to a lower than anticipated number of service requests and process improvement benefits. We continue to generate strong cash flow and repurchased $25 million of stock in the third quarter. Our full-year 2021 outlook primarily reflects a continuation of both the historically challenging market conditions in our real estate channel and favorable cost trends in the fourth quarter.”

Third-quarter 2021 revenue increased seven percent compared to the prior year period. Renewal revenue increased eight percent due to improved price realization and growth in the number of renewed home service plans. First-year real estate revenue decreased five percent due to a decline in the number of home service plans as a result of the tight existing home sales market, which was partly offset by improved price realization. First-year direct-to-consumer revenue increased seven percent, primarily due to improved price realization. The increase in other revenue was driven primarily by ProConnect and Streem growth.

Third-quarter 2021 net income was $76 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.89. Net income increased $28 million from the prior year period, primarily driven by the improvement in gross profit.

Third-quarter 2021 Adjusted EBITDA of $122 million was $31 million higher than the prior year period as a result of the following factors:

  • $24 million benefit from higher revenue conversion(3);
  • $16 million benefit from lower contract claims costs(4) in third-quarter 2021 versus the prior year period, excluding the impact of claims costs related to the change in revenue;
  • $7 million unfavorable impact from increased sales and marketing costs, primarily in the direct-to-consumer channel; and
  • $3 million unfavorable impact from higher general and administrative costs, including increased personnel expense and investments in technology.

The $16 million benefit in contract claims costs was a result of a lower number of service requests across all trades and process improvement benefits. This was partly offset by unfavorable cost trends across all trades due to industry-wide parts and equipment availability challenges as well as higher inflation. Parts availability challenges resulted in higher replacement rates, primarily in the appliance trade, as a result of the tight global supply chain and contributed to the increased cost trends. Cooler temperatures than the prior year period resulted in a favorable impact on HVAC claims costs of approximately $4 million.

Net cash provided from operating activities was $142 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and was comprised of $207 million in earnings adjusted for non-cash charges, offset in part, by $65 million of cash used for working capital. Cash used for working capital was driven by normal seasonality and the impacts on deferred revenue relating to a decline in the number of first-year real estate home service plans and a higher proportion of monthly-pay customers.

Net cash used for investing activities was $23 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, and was comprised of capital expenditures related to investments in technology.

Net cash used for financing activities was $407 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and reflects the debt reduction and refinancing activities in the first half of the year and share repurchases in the third quarter.

Free Cash Flow was $119 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Cash at September 30, 2021 was $309 million and included restricted net assets of $178 million and Unrestricted Cash of $131 million.

Available liquidity was $379 million at September 30, 2021, consisting of Unrestricted Cash and $248 million of available borrowing capacity under the revolving credit facility.

Fourth-Quarter 2021 Outlook

  • Revenue range of $330 million to $340 million, compared to $323 million in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) range of $40 million to $45 million, compared to $32 million in the prior year period.

Updated Full-Year 2021 Outlook

  • Revenue range updated to $1.59 billion to $1.60 billion.
  • Gross margin updated to approximately 50 percent.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) range updated to $310 million to $315 million.
  • Capital expenditures range of $30 million to $35 million.
  • Continue to target annual effective tax rate of approximately 25 percent.

These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which may be beyond our control. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic; changes in the source and intensity of competition in our market; weakening general economic conditions; the success of our business strategies; our ability to attract, retain and maintain positive relations with third-party contractors and vendors; weather conditions and seasonality; our dependence on labor availability, third-party vendors, including business process outsourcers, and third-party component suppliers; special risks applicable to operations outside the United States by us or our business process outsource providers; lawsuits, enforcement actions and other claims by third parties or governmental authorities; increases in tariffs or changes to import/export regulations; cybersecurity breaches, disruptions or failures in our technology systems and our failure to protect the security of personal information about our customers; increases in parts, appliance and home system prices, and other operating costs; our ability to protect our intellectual property and other material proprietary rights; and the effects of our substantial indebtedness.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Frontdoor’s results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), Frontdoor has disclosed the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, and Unrestricted Cash.

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as net income before: provision for income taxes; interest expense; depreciation and amortization expense; non-cash stock-based compensation expense; restructuring charges; loss on extinguishment of debt; and other non-operating expenses. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful for investors, analysts and other interested parties as it facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures, taxation, the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment, restructuring initiatives and equity-based, long-term incentive plans.

We define “Free Cash Flow” as net cash provided from operating activities less property additions. Free Cash Flow is not a measurement of our financial performance or liquidity under U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net cash provided from operating activities or any other performance or liquidity measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Free Cash Flow is useful as a supplemental measure of our liquidity. Management uses Free Cash Flow to facilitate company-to-company cash flow comparisons, which may vary from company-to-company for reasons unrelated to operating performance.

We define “Adjusted Net Income” as net income before: amortization expense; restructuring charges; loss on extinguishment of debt; other non-operating expenses; and the tax impact of the aforementioned adjustments. We believe Adjusted Net Income is useful for investors, analysts and other interested parties as it facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by excluding potential differences caused by items listed in this definition.

We define “Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share” as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding.

We define “Unrestricted Cash” as cash not subject to third-party restrictions. For additional information related to our third-party restrictions, see “Liquidity and Capital Resources — Liquidity” under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

See the schedules attached hereto for additional information and reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for its and investors’ evaluation of Frontdoor’s business performance and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of the performance of Frontdoor’s business. While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating our business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly entitled measures reported by other companies.

(1)

 

See “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” accompanying this release for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, each a non-GAAP measure, to the nearest GAAP measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” included in this release for descriptions of calculations of these measures. Amounts presented in the reconciliations and other tables presented herein may not sum due to rounding.

(2)

 

A reconciliation of the forward-looking fourth-quarter and full-year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA outlook to net income cannot be provided without unreasonable effort because of the inherent difficulty of accurately forecasting the occurrence and financial impact of the various adjusting items necessary for such reconciliation that have not yet occurred, are out of our control, or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, the company is unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a material impact on its future GAAP financial results.

(3)

 

Revenue conversion includes the impact of the change in the number of home service plans as well as the impact of year-over-year price changes. The impact of the change in the number of home service plans considers the associated revenue on those plans less an estimate of contract claims costs based on margin experience in the prior year period.

(4)

 

Contracts claims costs includes the impact of changes in service request incidence, inflation and other drivers associated with the number of home service plans in the prior year period. The impact on contract claims costs resulting from year-over-year changes in the number of home service plans is included in revenue conversion above.
