Fourth-Quarter 2022 Summary

  • Revenue of $339 million was in line with the prior year period
  • Gross profit margin of 43% was better than expected as inflation moderated
  • Net income of $8 million and Adjusted EBITDA (1) of $33 million

Full-Year 2022 Summary

  • Revenue increased 4% to $1.66 billion and was comprised of a 6% increase from price and changes in customer product mix, partly offset by a 2% decline from lower volume
  • Gross profit margin declined 620 basis points to 43%, primarily driven by higher inflation
  • Net income of $71 million includes impairment and restructuring charges of $34 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA (1) of $214 million

Full-Year 2023 Outlook

  • Revenue range of $1.70 billion to $1.74 billion
  • Gross profit margin range of 43% to 45%
  • Adjusted EBITDA (2) range of $220 million to $240 million

“While 2022 was one of the most challenging macroeconomic environments this company has ever experienced, I believe that we have a bright financial outlook,” said Chief Executive Officer Bill Cobb. “We are developing multiple growth engines that will better position us to take advantage of the substantial market opportunity in the home services category. I am very excited about the upcoming launch of our new Frontdoor brand and expanding our growth opportunities to new sets of consumers. I encourage all of our stakeholders to find out more at our investor day tomorrow.”

“Our fourth quarter financial results were better than expected as inflation moderated,” said Chief Financial Officer Jessica Ross. “However, our full-year 2022 financial results were significantly impacted by rapidly rising inflation and a continued decline in our Real Estate channel sales, driven by the tight market conditions. Our full year 2023 outlook reflects ongoing sales pressure in our go-to-market home service plan channels as well as increased SG&A attributed to the launch of our Frontdoor brand. Our 2023 outlook also reflects higher gross margins resulting from the aggressive pricing and improvement initiatives we took last year, combined with the expectation that inflation will continue to improve.”

Fourth-quarter 2022 revenue of $339 million was in line with prior year period results. Renewals revenue increased 8% due to improved price realization. Real estate revenue decreased 32%, reflecting a continued decline in the number of home service plans resulting from the historically challenging home seller’s market. Direct-to-consumer revenue decreased 1% due to a decline in the number of home service plans that was mostly offset by higher pricing. The decline in other revenue was primarily driven by lower Streem revenue.

Fourth-quarter 2022 net income was $8 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.10.

Fourth-quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $33 million increased 17% versus the prior year period as a result of the following factors:

  • $4 million benefit from higher revenue conversion(3); and
  • $1 million of higher contract claims costs(4), excluding the impact of claims costs related to the change in revenue. Fourth quarter contract claims costs includes $25 million of favorable development related to prior periods, comprised of approximately $18 million related to the third quarter of 2022 and approximately $6 million related to the second quarter of 2022.

Full-year 2022 revenue increased 4% over the prior year to $1.66 billion. Renewals revenue increased 9% versus the prior year due to improved price realization and a higher number of home service plans. Real estate revenue decreased 27% versus the prior year due to a decline in the number of home service plans as a result of the challenging home seller’s market. Direct-to-consumer revenue increased 9% due to improved price realization and a mix shift to higher priced products, partially offset by a decline in volume. The increase in other revenue was primarily driven by growth in on-demand home services.

Full-year 2022 net income was $71 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.87.

Full-year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $214 million was $86 million lower than the prior year as a result of the following factors:

  • $62 million benefit from higher revenue conversion(3);
  • $137 million of higher contract claims costs(4), excluding the impact of claims costs related to the change in revenue. The increase was driven by inflationary cost pressures, including rising contractor-related expenses and higher parts and equipment costs.

Net cash provided from operating activities was $142 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2022 and was comprised of $151 million in earnings adjusted for non-cash charges, partially offset by $5 million in payments for restructuring charges and $5 million of cash used for working capital.

Net cash used for financing activities was $77 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2022 and was primarily comprised of $59 million of share repurchases.

Free Cash Flow was $102 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2022.

Cash as of December 31, 2022 was $292 million and was comprised of $145 million of restricted net assets and $147 million of Unrestricted Cash.

First-Quarter 2023 Outlook

  • Revenue of $355 million to $365 million, reflecting double-digit growth in the renewals channel, partially offset by an approximately 30% decline in the first-year real estate channel and a low single-digit decline in the first year direct to consumer channel.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $27 million to $37 million, reflecting benefit of prior pricing actions and mid-single digit inflation.

Full-Year 2023 Outlook

  • Revenue of $1.70 billion to $1.74 billion, or approximately 4% higher than the prior year. Some of the key revenue assumptions include:
    • Approximately 10% revenue growth in the renewals channel.
    • Low double digit revenue decline in the direct-to-consumer channel.
    • Nearly 20% revenue decline in the real estate channel.
    • Number of home service plans is expected to decline in the mid to upper single digit rate.
  • Gross profit margin of 43% to 45%, which reflects prior pricing actions flowing through and a moderation of inflation.
  • SG&A of $560 million to $585 million, which includes costs associated with marketing, technology and staffing related to the launch of the new Frontdoor brand.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $220 million to $240 million.
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $35 to 45 million, primarily consisting of technology investments.
  • Annual effective tax rate of approximately 26%.

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 depreciation and amortization expense; goodwill and intangibles impairment; restructuring charges; provision for income taxes; non-cash stock-based compensation expense; interest expense; 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 2022 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 first-quarter and full-year 2023 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.
