Fourth-quarter 2019 revenue increased seven percent over the prior year period. Renewal revenue increased 10 percent, primarily driven by growth in the number of home service plans and improved price realization. First-year real estate revenue was relatively flat with the prior year as improved price realization was offset by a decline in new unit sales. First-year direct-to-consumer revenue increased five percent, primarily due to growth in new sales that was mostly driven by increased investments in marketing.

Fourth-quarter 2019 net income was $19 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.22, versus $17 million in fourth-quarter 2018, or diluted earnings per share of $0.20. Fourth-quarter 2019 net income included a $16 million favorable impact from higher revenue conversion(3) that was mostly offset by a $15 million increase in selling and administrative expenses.

Fourth-quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA of $48 million was three percent higher than the prior year period, primarily due to $16 million of higher revenue conversion(3), partially offset by:

  • $1 million of higher contract claims costs, consisting of:
    • $3 million in process improvements and cost reduction initiatives,
    • $3 million net favorable impact of adjustments related to contract claims cost development, and
    • $2 million in lower claims incidence driven by seasonally mild weather, more than offset by
    • $9 million in higher inflation and tariff costs;
  • $6 million of increased sales, marketing and customer service costs, primarily investments in the direct-to-consumer channel; and
  • $7 million of increased general and administrative costs, primarily higher personnel costs.

These benefits were partially offset by a $54 million increase in selling and administrative expenses, and a $39 million increase in interest expense related to the debt offering completed in August 2018 in conjunction with the Spin-off.

Full-year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA of $303 million was 27 percent higher than the prior year period, primarily due to the following items:

  • $74 million of higher revenue conversion(3), including the net contribution from new customers and higher pricing;
  • $37 million of lower contract claims costs, consisting of:
    • $30 million from process improvements and cost reduction initiatives,
    • $22 million favorable impact from seasonally mild weather on claims incidence, and
    • $10 million net favorable impact of adjustments related to contract claims cost development, partially offset by
    • $25 million in higher inflation and tariff costs;
  • $19 million of increased sales, marketing and customer service costs, primarily in the direct-to-consumer channel;
  • $4 million in higher spin-off dis-synergies, primarily related to the separation of technology systems; and
  • $25 million of increased general and administrative costs, including higher personnel costs of $10 million, insurance-related costs of $7 million, incentive compensation expense of $5 million, and a $3 million increase in other general and administrative costs, primarily consisting of professional fees.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, net cash provided from operating activities was $200 million, an increase of $11 million from the twelve months ended December 31, 2018. Working capital was an $11 million source of cash for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 compared to a $32 million source of cash for the prior year period.

Net cash used for investing activities was $61 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 compared to $10 million for the prior year period. The change in investing activities was primarily due to the acquisition of Streem in the fourth quarter of 2019, as well as a reduction in cash flows from marketable securities transactions.

Net cash used for financing activities was $7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 and was primarily related to debt payments. This compares to $165 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, which was primarily related to net cash transfers to our former parent that occurred prior to the Spin-off.

Free Cash Flow(1) was $178 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 compared to $163 million for the prior year period. The increase of $16 million includes higher Adjusted EBITDA and lower payments for Spin-off charges, partially offset by higher cash payments for interest and taxes.

Cash and marketable securities totaled $434 million as of December 31, 2019, a $129 million increase from December 31, 2018.

Total restricted net assets decreased to $168 million at December 31, 2019 from $202 million at September 30, 2019.

Full-Year 2020 Outlook

  • Revenue is anticipated to range from $1.47 billion to $1.49 billion;
  • Gross profit margin is anticipated to range from 49 to 50 percent;
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) is anticipated to range from $300 million to $320 million;
  • Capital expenditures are anticipated to range from $30 million to $40 million; and
  • Annual Effective Tax Rate is anticipated to be approximately 25 percent.

Additionally, first-quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA(2) is anticipated to range from $40 million to $45 million.

References in this news release to “ServiceMaster” refer to ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. References to the “Spin-off” refer to the spin-off by ServiceMaster of the ownership and operations of its businesses operated under the American Home Shield, HSA, OneGuard and Landmark brand names into Frontdoor, which was completed on October 1, 2018 and resulted in Frontdoor operating as an independent, publicly traded company trading on Nasdaq under the symbol “FTDR”.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, in particular, projected future performance and any statements about Frontdoor’s plans, strategies and prospects. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terms such as “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” “could,” “should,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “project,” “will,” “shall,” “would,” “aim,” or other comparable terms. 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: weather conditions and seasonality; weakening general economic conditions; lawsuits, enforcement actions and other claims by third parties or governmental authorities; the effects of our substantial indebtedness; the success of our business strategies; and failure to achieve some or all of the expected benefits of the Spin-off. We caution you that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or outcomes and that actual performance and outcomes, including, without limitation, our actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of new markets or market segments in which we operate, may differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this news release. For a discussion of other important factors that could cause Frontdoor’s results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the forward-looking statements included in this document, you should refer to the risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in Frontdoor’s periodic reports filed with the SEC as well as the disclosure contained in Item 1A. Risk Factors in our 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Except as required by law, Frontdoor does not undertake any obligation to update or revise these 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. Readers are advised to review Frontdoor’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available from the SEC’s EDGAR database at sec.gov, and via Frontdoor’s website at frontdoorhome.com.

Spin-off Impact to Financials

The accompanying consolidated and combined financial statements for periods prior to the Spin-off include all revenues, costs, assets and liabilities directly attributable to us. ServiceMaster’s debt and corresponding interest expense were not allocated to us for periods prior to the Spin-off since we were not the legal obligor of the debt. The accompanying consolidated and combined financial statements include expense allocations for certain corporate functions historically provided by ServiceMaster. These allocations may not be indicative of the level of expense which would have been incurred had the company operated as a separate entity prior to the Spin-off, nor are these costs necessarily indicative of costs we may incur in the future.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as net income before: provision for income taxes; interest expense; interest income from affiliate; depreciation and amortization expense; non-cash stock-based compensation expense; restructuring charges; Spin-off charges; secondary offering costs; affiliate royalty expense; (gain) loss on insured home service plan claims; 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, Spin-off charges, arrangements with affiliates and equity-based, long-term incentive plans.

We define “Adjusted EBITDA Margin” as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. We believe Adjusted EBITDA Margin 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, Spin-off charges, arrangements with affiliates 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 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 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; Spin-off charges; secondary offering costs; affiliate royalty expense; interest income from affiliate; (gain) loss on insured home service plan claims; 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.

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 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 Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Free Cash Flow, 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.

 (2)

A reconciliation of the forward-looking first-quarter and full-year 2020 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 is calculated using the estimated gross margin impact of new home service plan revenue along with the impact of price changes.
