(“TPB” or “the Company”) (NYSE: TPB), a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of branded consumer products including alternative smoking accessories and consumables with active ingredients, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter 2020

(Comparisons vs. same period a year-ago)

  • Net sales increased 31.2% to $105.3 million
  • Gross profit increased 321.8% to $51.8 million partly the result of certain restructuring expenses incurred in the prior year period

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 80.9% to $25.8 million (see Schedule A for a reconciliation to net income)
  • Diluted EPS of $0.65 and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $0.84 as compared to $(0.62) and $0.41 in the year-ago period, respectively (see Schedule B for a reconciliation to Diluted EPS)

Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2020

(Comparisons vs. same period a year-ago)

  • Net sales increased 11.9% to $405.1 million
  • Gross profit increased 38.7% to $189.6 million partly the result of certain restructuring expenses in the prior year period
  • Net income increased $19.3 million to $33.0 million which includes PMTA related expenses from 4Q19 through 3Q20
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 34.0% to $90.2 million (see Schedule A for a reconciliation to net income)
  • Diluted EPS of $1.67 and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $2.81 as compared to $0.69 and $1.86 in the year-ago period, respectively (see Schedule B for a reconciliation to Diluted EPS)

“Despite challenges related to COVID-19, our company remained focused on executing our plan throughout 2020 and finished the year strong with tremendous top-line growth in the fourth quarter. The year was especially transformational for our Zig-Zag brand as targeted initiatives led to 22% growth for the full year as we re-positioned it to be our fastest growing segment. Our Stoker’s segment delivered a second consecutive year of double-digit growth driven by incremental share gains in both product lines. Going forward, we expect Zig-Zag and Stoker’s to continue to be the backbone of our organic sales growth,” said Larry Wexler, President and CEO. “NewGen managed to deliver a solid performance despite market disruption around the PMTA application process while creating long-term upside potential through its filed applications. We also had an active year of capital deployment with the acquisition of assets from Durfort, as well as investments in the cannabinoid sector, in dosist™ and Wild Hempettes. Most recently, we successfully priced $250 million of senior secured notes, the latest step in the evolution of our capital structure, which gives us increased flexibility to scale the business through additional acquisitions and investments. Capitalizing on our strong momentum and increased liquidity, we expect another strong year in 2021.”

Segment Renaming

To better align with Turning Point Brands’ positioning as a branded consumer products company and to highlight the strength of its core brands, the Company has renamed its core business segments from Smoking Products to Zig-Zag Products and Smokeless Products to Stoker’s Products. Historical financial results are not impacted by the segment name change.

Zig-Zag Products Segment (39% of total net sales in the quarter)

For the fourth quarter, Zig-Zag Products segment net sales increased 46.7% to $40.5 million. Growth was driven by double-digit advances in US rolling papers and MYO cigar wraps. MYO cigar wraps benefitted from re-stocking of channel inventory that was depleted by a COVID-related shutdown with our third-party manufacturer in the second quarter. Cigars and discontinued MYO pipe declined $0.6 million. In the quarter, total Zig-Zag Products segment volume increased 40.9% while price/mix increased 5.8%.

For the quarter, Zig-Zag Products segment gross profit increased 61.9% to $25.2 million. Segment gross margin expanded 580 basis points to 62.1% driven by increased margin in MYO cigar wraps sales as a result of the Durfort transaction in June.

For the full year, Zig-Zag Products segment net sales increased 22.1% to $132.8 million. Growth was driven by double-digit advances in US rolling papers and MYO cigar wraps. This more than offset a $2.1 million decline in our Canadian papers business which was impacted by the timing of deliveries that pushed sales into 2021 and a $1.8 million decline in our Other Zig-Zag products business. For the year, total Zig-Zag Products segment volume increased 19.7% while price/mix increased 2.4%.

For the full year, Zig-Zag Products segment gross profit increased 31.7% to $78.2 million. Segment gross margin expanded 430 basis points to 58.9% driven by increased margin in MYO cigar wraps sales as a result of the Durfort transaction in June.

“It was another strong quarter for Zig-Zag driven by robust market demand and the benefits of our growth initiatives. In MYO cigar wraps, we were able to fulfill back-orders stemming from COVID-related disruptions in the first half of 2020. More importantly, we are now better positioned to fulfill growing demand through more direct manufacturing controls with our third-party supplier as a result of the Durfort transaction. Our US papers business saw its strongest share gains in recent years driven by our product and channel growth initiatives including robust contributions from paper cones. In addition, our e-commerce business ramped through the year and accounted for a double-digit percentage of our US papers sales in the second half of the year,” said Graham Purdy, Chief Operating Officer. “We also made an additional investment into ReCreation Marketing, our distribution partner in Canada, during the quarter and will now be consolidating its results as a result of our 50% ownership stake. Overall, the outlook continues to get brighter for the Zig-Zag Products segment as our internal growth initiatives are leveraging strong secular growth trends from increasing consumer acceptance of cannabis and state legalization efforts.”

Stoker’s Products Segment (27% of total net sales in the quarter)

For the fourth quarter, Stoker’s Products segment net sales increased 15.2% to $28.8 million on double-digit growth of MST and low-single-digit growth of loose leaf chewing tobacco. MST represented 59% of Stoker’s Products revenues in the quarter, up from 54% a year earlier. In the quarter, total Stoker’s Products segment volume increased 7.5% and price/mix advanced 7.7%.

For the quarter, Stoker’s Products segment gross profit increased 18.5% to $14.9 million. Segment gross margin expanded 150 basis points to 51.7%.

For the full year, Stoker’s Products segment net sales increased 16.0% to $115.9 million on double-digit growth of MST and mid-single-digit growth of loose leaf chewing tobacco. For the full year, total Stoker’s Products segment volume increased 12.0% and price/mix advanced 4.0%.

For the full year, Stoker’s Products segment gross profit increased 17.6% to $61.5 million. Segment gross margin expanded 70 basis points to 53.0%.

“MST continues to drive our performance in the Stoker’s segment. The outlook remains favorable with its ideal positioning as a leading value brand driving further same store sales gains and distribution expansion. With only a mid-single-digit percentage share of the volume in the category, Stoker’s MST has a long growth runway ahead of it,” said Purdy.

NewGen Products Segment (34% of total net sales in the quarter)

For the fourth quarter, NewGen Products segment net sales increased 30.3% to $36.0 million driven by double-digit growth in both the vape distribution and Nu-X businesses. The previous year period was negatively impacted by a market-driven disruption in our vape business.

For the quarter, NewGen Products gross profit increased $27.6 million to $11.8. Segment gross margin was 32.7%. The previous year period was impacted by $23.2 million of related write-offs and reserves primarily associated with the vape business disruption.

For the full year, NewGen Products segment net sales increased 2.0% to $156.4 million as positive contribution from the vape distribution business and double-digit growth in Nu-X was partly offset by a decline in RipTide.

For the full year, NewGen Products gross profit roughly doubled to $50.0 million. Segment gross margin was 31.9%. The previous year period was impacted by the previously mentioned write-offs and reserves.

“NewGen finished the year with strong year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter as we compared against a challenging quarter in the previous year. More encouragingly, we also saw a recovery in the gross margins from our vape distribution business sequentially through the quarter as we moved further away from the PMTA deadline in September. Going forward, we continue to expect short-term volatility in the vape distribution business but are well-positioned with longer-term upside potential from the PMTA process,” said Purdy. “Within the segment, Solace and our other proprietary brands continue to make strides and should see strong growth in 2021.”

Recent Events

Senior Secured Notes Offering

On February 3, 2021, TPB priced a private offering (the “Offering”) of $250 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.625% senior secured notes due 2026 (the “Notes”). The Notes are to be sold at an issue price of 100.0% of the principal amount, will bear interest at a rate of 5.625% and will mature on February 15, 2026. The sale of the Notes to the initial purchasers is expected to settle on February 11, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to result in approximately $245 million in net proceeds to the company after deducting the initial purchasers’ discount and estimated offering expenses payable by the company. TPB intends to use the proceeds from the Offering (i) to repay all obligations under and terminate its existing term loan and revolving credit facility, (i) to pay related fees, costs, and expenses and (iii) for general corporate purposes. The closing of the Offering is subject to customary conditions. In connection with the Offering, TPB intends to enter into a new $25 million senior secured revolving credit facility.

Performance Measures in the Fourth Quarter

Fourth quarter consolidated selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $30.1 million compared to $30.4 million in 2019.

The fourth quarter had notable non-recurring impacts:

  • $1.2 million of transaction expenses principally related to M&A activity as compared to $0.2 million in the year-ago period
  • $0.5 million of corporate restructuring expenses as compared to $1.7 million in the year-ago period

Total gross debt as of December 31, 2020, was $320.0 million. The corresponding net debt (total gross debt less cash) at December 31, 2020 was $278.2 million. The Company ended the quarter with total liquidity of $88.2 million comprising $41.8 million of cash and $46.4 million of revolving credit facility capacity.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 59,710 shares at an average price of $42.31. For the year, the Company repurchased 398,670 shares at an average price of $25.56.

2021 Outlook

The Company expects 2021 results to be impacted by several external variables including the extent of ongoing impacts from COVID-19 and the rate of vaccination distribution along with uncertainties about the magnitude of government measures to support the consumer. The Company has considered the impacts of such factors in framing its outlook for the year.

Absent any further acquisitions, TPB projects the following for 2021:

  • Net Sales of $412 to $432 million which assumes:

    • Double-digit sales growth for Zig-Zag Products
    • High-single-digit sales growth for Stoker’s Products
    • Mid-single-digit sales declines for NewGen Products, which includes double-digit declines for vape distribution offset by growth in Nu-X
    • Vape distribution outlook assumes comparisons against COVID-related benefits in 2020, a $3 million headwind from the sale of our Vapor Shark retail stores, and continued disruption in the vape market as the FDA begins enforcement actions
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $99 to $105 million

Other projections for 2021 include:

  • Stock compensation and non-cash incentive expense of $7 million
  • Cash interest expense of $19 million and GAAP interest expense of $22 million which no longer includes debt discount amortization related to the 2024 convertible notes and reflects the recently priced senior secured notes
  • Effective income tax rate of 23% to 24%
  • Capital expenditures of $5 to $6 million

For the first quarter of 2021, TPB projects:

  • Net Sales of $97 to $102 million

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP, we use non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted diluted EPS, and Adjusted Operating Income. We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted diluted EPS, and Adjusted Operating Income are used by management to compare our performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and planning purposes and are presented to our board of directors. We believe that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted diluted EPS and Adjusted Operating Income are appropriate measures of operating performance because they eliminate the impact of expenses that do not relate to business performance.

We define “EBITDA” as net income before interest expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as net income before interest expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization, other non-cash items and other items that we do not consider ordinary course in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. We define “Adjusted diluted EPS” as diluted earnings per share excluding items that we do not consider ordinary course in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. We define “Adjusted Operating Income” as operating income excluding depreciation, amortization, LIFO, other non-cash items and other items that we do not consider ordinary course in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance.

Non-U.S. GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Adjusted diluted EPS and Adjusted Operating Income exclude significant expenses that are required by U.S. GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements and is subject to inherent limitations. In addition, other companies in our industry may calculate this non-U.S. GAAP measure differently than we do or may not calculate it at all, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

In accordance with SEC rules, we have provided, in the supplemental information attached, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the next directly comparable GAAP measures.
