First-Quarter 2024 Summary

  • Revenue increased 3% to $378 million and was comprised of an 11% increase from price that was partly offset by an 8% decline from lower volume
  • Gross profit margin expanded 510 basis points to 51% as a result of higher realized price, a transition to higher service fees and continued process improvement initiatives that was partly offset by inflationary cost pressures
  • Net income and Diluted earnings per share increased to $34 million and $0.43, respectively
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 33% to $71 million
  • Net cash provided from operating activities of $84 million

Full-Year 2024 Outlook

  • Maintaining revenue range of $1.81 billion to $1.84 billion
  • Increasing gross profit margin range to approximately 50.0%
  • Increasing Adjusted EBITDA(2) range to $360 million to $370 million

“Frontdoor continues to operate extremely well and is off to a strong start in 2024," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Cobb. “While earnings continue to exceed expectations, our top priority is to find new and innovative ways to increase demand for our services. The American Home Shield brand relaunch is a significant component of this strategy, and I am very pleased with the initial reaction to our new celebrity spokesperson, Rachel Dratch, as 'Warrantina'. We are truly bringing a refreshed and high energy look to our brand and are optimistic it will improve the growth trajectory for home warranties for years to come."

“I am extremely pleased with our first-quarter financial performance,” said Chief Financial Officer Jessica Ross. “We substantially beat our first-quarter Adjusted EBITDA outlook as we continue to deliver and execute on our margin expansion initiatives. As a result, we are increasing our full-year 2024 gross profit margin and Adjusted EBITDA targets while continuing to make investments to drive growth."

First-quarter 2024 revenue increased 3% to $378 million, which was comprised of an 11% increase from price that was partially offset by an 8% decline from lower volume.

  • Renewal revenue increased 7% due to improved price realization that was partially offset by lower volume;
  • Real estate revenue decreased 17% due to lower sales as a result of the challenging real estate market that was partially offset by improved price realization;
  • Direct-to-consumer revenue decreased 19% primarily due to lower sales, which we believe was driven by a decline in overall category demand for home warranties; and
  • Other revenue increased $6 million due to higher on-demand home services, primarily new HVAC sales.

First-quarter 2024 net income was $34 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.43.

First-quarter 2024 Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $71 million increased 33% versus the prior year period, and includes:

  • $14 million from higher revenue conversion(3), as price increases were partly offset by lower volume;
  • $10 million of lower contract claims costs(4), excluding the impact of claims costs related to the change in revenue. The decrease in contract claims costs reflects:
    • A transition to higher service fees that drove a lower number of service requests per customer as well as improved net cost per service request;
    • Continued process improvement initiatives, specifically better cost management across our contractor network; partially offset by
    • Ongoing inflationary cost pressures from our contractor network, replacement parts and equipment; and
    • Favorable claims cost development of $1 million, compared to a $6 million favorable cost development in the first quarter of 2023
  • $7 million of higher sales and marketing costs, primarily investments to drive direct-to-consumer sales; and
  • $3 million of higher G&A costs primarily due to increased personnel costs.

Net cash provided from operating activities was $84 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and was comprised of $51 million in earnings adjusted for non-cash charges and $34 million in cash provided from working capital, partially offset by $1 million in payments for restructuring charges.

Net cash used for investing activities was $10 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and was primarily comprised of capital expenditures related to technology projects.

Net cash used for financing activities was $21 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and was primarily comprised of $13 million (including taxes and fees) to repurchase 0.4 million shares and $4 million of scheduled debt payments.

Free Cash Flow(1) was $73 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Cash as of March 31, 2024 was $378 million and was comprised of $165 million of restricted net assets and $213 million of Unrestricted Cash.

Capital Allocation Update

  • Consistent with our stated capital allocation strategy, the company repurchased $33 million of shares in March and April. The company expects to continue to use excess cash to repurchase shares under our current 3-year, $400 million authorization, absent any acquisitions.

Second-Quarter 2024 Outlook

  • Revenue of $530 million to $540 million, a 2% increase over the prior-year period.

Updated Full-Year 2024 Outlook

  • Revenue to grow approximately 2% to 3% to $1.81 billion to $1.84 billion. Key assumptions include:
    • A mid-single digit increase in renewals channel revenue;
    • Approximately 10% decline in direct-to-consumer channel revenue;
    • A 15% to 20% decline in real estate channel revenue;
    • Approximately 30% increase in other revenue, which is primarily driven by the new HVAC program;
    • The number of home warranties is expected to decline 1% to 3%.
  • Increasing gross profit margin to approximately 50%.
  • SG&A of $580 million to $595 million.

Risk Factors in our 2023 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC, as such factors may be updated from time to time in Frontdoor’s periodic filings with the SEC. Except as required by law, Frontdoor does not undertake any obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements to reflect new information or events or circumstances that occur after the date of this news release or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events or otherwise.

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 2023 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.

All other trademarks used herein are the property of their respective owners.

(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 second-quarter and full-year 2024 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 warranties as well as the impact of year-over-year price changes. The impact of the change in the number of home warranties considers the associated revenue on those plans less an estimate of contract claims costs based on margin experience in the prior year period.

(4)  

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