Turtle Beach Reports Strong First Quarter 2020 Results And Raises Full-Year Outlook

SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR), a leading gaming audio and accessory brand, reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

First Quarter Summary vs. Year-Ago Quarter:

  • Net revenue was $35.0 million ($35.1 million in constant currency) versus $44.8 million;
  • Net loss of $3.6 million, or $(0.25) per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(2.7) million compared to $4.3 million.

Management Commentary

“During the first quarter, as consumers around the world stayed home to help contain COVID-19,  we saw strong demand for our products including record-setting retail sales and significant market share gains in March, which drove results that exceeded our expectations across all key financial metrics,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “Our headsets are also well-suited for learning and working remotely via video or audio conferencing, which we believe further increased demand. While we expect the increased demand for headsets may subside once stay-at-home measures are relaxed, we believe our sales for the year will exceed our prior forecast.

“According to NPD, U.S. retail sales of console headsets in the month of March for both the industry and for Turtle Beach were the highest ever, including in March of 2018, which was the start of the battle royale surge. The 39% increase in market sales for March partially offset the expected declines in January and February, resulting in total console gaming headset sales in the first quarter declining only 4% year-over-year. In addition to the industry’s March surge in U.S. console headset sales, we gained over 500 basis points in revenue share in March, resulting in 57% growth in the U.S. retail sales of our headsets compared to March of 2019.

“We believe these results continue to be a testament to our strong brand, excellent products and our execution at retail. This is especially true in times like these, where retail, supply chain and operational execution can make a big difference both to us and to our retail partners.

“While it is not clear at this point how long this increased demand will continue, we now expect full year revenues, adjusted EBITDA and net income per diluted share to exceed our earlier forecasts. We recognize that these are unprecedented times and that consumer demand and retail supply logistics could fluctuate depending on the course of the pandemic and the response by governments and consumers.” 

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $35.0 million compared to $44.8 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease was the result of the expected decline from the record levels of demand in the prior year quarter due to the battle royale-driven increase in users throughout the prior year  and a strong slate of triple-A game releases in holiday 2018. In addition, the overall market for console gaming accessories this quarter was expected to be lower due to the announcements of new Xbox and PlayStation consoles coming later this year. These impacts were partially offset by the increased sales in March due to state and local stay-at-home orders. On a constant currency basis, revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $35.1 million.

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2020 was 30.8% compared to 33.0% in the first quarter of 2019. This expected decrease was primarily due to the continued impact of tariffs and a decline in volume-based fixed cost leverage, partially offset by a more favorable business mix.

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2020 were $15.8 million compared to $13.0 million in the 2019 period, with the increase due primarily to the inclusion of costs associated with the acquisition of ROCCAT, which was completed in May of 2019. 

Net loss in the first quarter of 2020 was $3.6 million compared to net income of $3.1 million in the year-ago quarter. The decline was primarily driven by the expected decline in revenue and the expected increase in operating expenses.

Net loss per share in the first quarter of 2020 was $0.25 on 14.5 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income per share of $0.09 on 16.3 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted net loss (as defined below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in the first quarter of 2020 was $3.4 million, or $(0.23) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $2.2 million, or $0.13 per share, in the corresponding period in 2019. 

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in the first quarter of 2020 was $(2.7) million compared to $4.3 million in the year-ago quarter.

Balance Sheet Highlights

At March 31, 2020, the Company had $8.7 million of cash and cash equivalents with $0.3 million of outstanding debt under its revolving line of credit. This compares to $10.2 million of cash and cash equivalents with no outstanding debt under its revolving credit facility at March 31, 2019. 

Revised 2020 Outlook       

For the second quarter of 2020, the Company expects revenue to range between $42 million and $47 million. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $(2.0) million and breakeven. Net loss per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.27) and $(0.17), and adjusted loss per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.24) and $(0.14), both reflecting the aforementioned revenue and EBITDA forecasts. Per share figures for the second quarter of 2020 assume approximately 14.5 million diluted shares outstanding.

For the full year 2020, the Company now expects revenue to range between $224 million and $234 million (versus the prior range of $214 million to $224 million). The annual revenue forecast reflects an anticipated decline in the overall console headset market ahead of the new console launches partially offset by increased demand resulting from stay-at-home orders. Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to range between $9 million and $14 million (versus the prior range of $5 million and $10 million), reflecting the higher expected revenues for the year and the continuation of planned marketing and new product-related investments of approximately $9 million to expand the Company’s position in the PC accessories market. Net income (loss) per diluted share is now expected to range between $(0.22) and $0.03, compared to prior guidance of a range of $(0.46) to $(0.13). Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.16) and $0.09, compared to prior guidance of a range of $(0.45) to $(0.12), both reflecting the aforementioned revenue and EBITDA forecasts. Per share figures for the full year 2020 assume approximately 15 million diluted shares outstanding.

With respect to the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook for the second quarter and full year 2020, a reconciliation to its net income (loss) outlook for the same periods has not been provided because of the variability, complexity, and lack of visibility with respect to certain reconciling items between adjusted EBITDA and net income (loss), including other income (expense), provision for income taxes and stock-based compensation. These items cannot be reasonably and accurately predicted without the investment of undue time, cost and other resources and, accordingly, a reconciliation of the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook to its net income (loss) outlook for such periods is not provided. These reconciling items could be material to the Company’s actual results for such periods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to its reported results, the Company has included in this earnings release certain financial results, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and constant currency revenue, that the Securities and Exchange Commission defines as “non-GAAP financial measures.” Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s reported results, can provide useful supplemental information for investors analyzing period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s results. “Adjusted Net Income” is defined as net income excluding (i) integration and transaction costs related to the acquisition of the business and assets related to the ROCCAT brand, (ii) the effect of the mark-to-market requirement of the financial instrument obligation, (iii) any change in fair value of contingent consideration and (iv) the release of valuation allowances on deferred tax assets. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined by the Company as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation (non-cash), and certain non-recurring items that we believe are not representative of core operations (e.g., the integration and transaction costs related to the acquisition of the business and assets related to the ROCCAT brand, the mark-to-market adjustment for the financial instrument obligation and the change in fair value of contingent consideration). “Constant currency revenue” is defined by the Company as revenue excluding the impacts of fluctuations in exchange rates from prior periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented because management uses non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance, to perform financial planning, and to determine incentive compensation. Therefore, the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors. The presented non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that management does not believe reflect the Company’s core operating performance because such items are inherently unusual, non-operating, unpredictable, non-recurring, or non-cash. See a reconciliation of GAAP results to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA included below for each of the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

Turtle Beach Reports Strong First Quarter 2020 Results And Raises Full-Year Outlook

SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR), a leading gaming audio and accessory brand, reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

First Quarter Summary vs. Year-Ago Quarter:

  • Net revenue was $35.0 million ($35.1 million in constant currency) versus $44.8 million;
  • Net loss of $3.6 million, or $(0.25) per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(2.7) million compared to $4.3 million.

Management Commentary

“During the first quarter, as consumers around the world stayed home to help contain COVID-19,  we saw strong demand for our products including record-setting retail sales and significant market share gains in March, which drove results that exceeded our expectations across all key financial metrics,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “Our headsets are also well-suited for learning and working remotely via video or audio conferencing, which we believe further increased demand. While we expect the increased demand for headsets may subside once stay-at-home measures are relaxed, we believe our sales for the year will exceed our prior forecast.

“According to NPD, U.S. retail sales of console headsets in the month of March for both the industry and for Turtle Beach were the highest ever, including in March of 2018, which was the start of the battle royale surge. The 39% increase in market sales for March partially offset the expected declines in January and February, resulting in total console gaming headset sales in the first quarter declining only 4% year-over-year. In addition to the industry’s March surge in U.S. console headset sales, we gained over 500 basis points in revenue share in March, resulting in 57% growth in the U.S. retail sales of our headsets compared to March of 2019.

“We believe these results continue to be a testament to our strong brand, excellent products and our execution at retail. This is especially true in times like these, where retail, supply chain and operational execution can make a big difference both to us and to our retail partners.

“While it is not clear at this point how long this increased demand will continue, we now expect full year revenues, adjusted EBITDA and net income per diluted share to exceed our earlier forecasts. We recognize that these are unprecedented times and that consumer demand and retail supply logistics could fluctuate depending on the course of the pandemic and the response by governments and consumers.” 

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $35.0 million compared to $44.8 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease was the result of the expected decline from the record levels of demand in the prior year quarter due to the battle royale-driven increase in users throughout the prior year  and a strong slate of triple-A game releases in holiday 2018. In addition, the overall market for console gaming accessories this quarter was expected to be lower due to the announcements of new Xbox and PlayStation consoles coming later this year. These impacts were partially offset by the increased sales in March due to state and local stay-at-home orders. On a constant currency basis, revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $35.1 million.

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2020 was 30.8% compared to 33.0% in the first quarter of 2019. This expected decrease was primarily due to the continued impact of tariffs and a decline in volume-based fixed cost leverage, partially offset by a more favorable business mix.

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2020 were $15.8 million compared to $13.0 million in the 2019 period, with the increase due primarily to the inclusion of costs associated with the acquisition of ROCCAT, which was completed in May of 2019. 

Net loss in the first quarter of 2020 was $3.6 million compared to net income of $3.1 million in the year-ago quarter. The decline was primarily driven by the expected decline in revenue and the expected increase in operating expenses.

Net loss per share in the first quarter of 2020 was $0.25 on 14.5 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income per share of $0.09 on 16.3 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted net loss (as defined below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in the first quarter of 2020 was $3.4 million, or $(0.23) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $2.2 million, or $0.13 per share, in the corresponding period in 2019. 

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in the first quarter of 2020 was $(2.7) million compared to $4.3 million in the year-ago quarter.

Balance Sheet Highlights

At March 31, 2020, the Company had $8.7 million of cash and cash equivalents with $0.3 million of outstanding debt under its revolving line of credit. This compares to $10.2 million of cash and cash equivalents with no outstanding debt under its revolving credit facility at March 31, 2019. 

Revised 2020 Outlook       

For the second quarter of 2020, the Company expects revenue to range between $42 million and $47 million. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $(2.0) million and breakeven. Net loss per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.27) and $(0.17), and adjusted loss per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.24) and $(0.14), both reflecting the aforementioned revenue and EBITDA forecasts. Per share figures for the second quarter of 2020 assume approximately 14.5 million diluted shares outstanding.

For the full year 2020, the Company now expects revenue to range between $224 million and $234 million (versus the prior range of $214 million to $224 million). The annual revenue forecast reflects an anticipated decline in the overall console headset market ahead of the new console launches partially offset by increased demand resulting from stay-at-home orders. Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to range between $9 million and $14 million (versus the prior range of $5 million and $10 million), reflecting the higher expected revenues for the year and the continuation of planned marketing and new product-related investments of approximately $9 million to expand the Company’s position in the PC accessories market. Net income (loss) per diluted share is now expected to range between $(0.22) and $0.03, compared to prior guidance of a range of $(0.46) to $(0.13). Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.16) and $0.09, compared to prior guidance of a range of $(0.45) to $(0.12), both reflecting the aforementioned revenue and EBITDA forecasts. Per share figures for the full year 2020 assume approximately 15 million diluted shares outstanding.

With respect to the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook for the second quarter and full year 2020, a reconciliation to its net income (loss) outlook for the same periods has not been provided because of the variability, complexity, and lack of visibility with respect to certain reconciling items between adjusted EBITDA and net income (loss), including other income (expense), provision for income taxes and stock-based compensation. These items cannot be reasonably and accurately predicted without the investment of undue time, cost and other resources and, accordingly, a reconciliation of the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook to its net income (loss) outlook for such periods is not provided. These reconciling items could be material to the Company’s actual results for such periods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to its reported results, the Company has included in this earnings release certain financial results, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and constant currency revenue, that the Securities and Exchange Commission defines as “non-GAAP financial measures.” Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s reported results, can provide useful supplemental information for investors analyzing period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s results. “Adjusted Net Income” is defined as net income excluding (i) integration and transaction costs related to the acquisition of the business and assets related to the ROCCAT brand, (ii) the effect of the mark-to-market requirement of the financial instrument obligation, (iii) any change in fair value of contingent consideration and (iv) the release of valuation allowances on deferred tax assets. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined by the Company as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation (non-cash), and certain non-recurring items that we believe are not representative of core operations (e.g., the integration and transaction costs related to the acquisition of the business and assets related to the ROCCAT brand, the mark-to-market adjustment for the financial instrument obligation and the change in fair value of contingent consideration). “Constant currency revenue” is defined by the Company as revenue excluding the impacts of fluctuations in exchange rates from prior periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented because management uses non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance, to perform financial planning, and to determine incentive compensation. Therefore, the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors. The presented non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that management does not believe reflect the Company’s core operating performance because such items are inherently unusual, non-operating, unpredictable, non-recurring, or non-cash. See a reconciliation of GAAP results to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA included below for each of the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

Press Releases

Turtle Beach Reports Strong First Quarter 2020 Results And Raises Full-Year Outlook

SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR), a leading gaming audio and accessory brand, reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

First Quarter Summary vs. Year-Ago Quarter:

  • Net revenue was $35.0 million ($35.1 million in constant currency) versus $44.8 million;
  • Net loss of $3.6 million, or $(0.25) per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(2.7) million compared to $4.3 million.

Management Commentary

“During the first quarter, as consumers around the world stayed home to help contain COVID-19,  we saw strong demand for our products including record-setting retail sales and significant market share gains in March, which drove results that exceeded our expectations across all key financial metrics,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “Our headsets are also well-suited for learning and working remotely via video or audio conferencing, which we believe further increased demand. While we expect the increased demand for headsets may subside once stay-at-home measures are relaxed, we believe our sales for the year will exceed our prior forecast.

“According to NPD, U.S. retail sales of console headsets in the month of March for both the industry and for Turtle Beach were the highest ever, including in March of 2018, which was the start of the battle royale surge. The 39% increase in market sales for March partially offset the expected declines in January and February, resulting in total console gaming headset sales in the first quarter declining only 4% year-over-year. In addition to the industry’s March surge in U.S. console headset sales, we gained over 500 basis points in revenue share in March, resulting in 57% growth in the U.S. retail sales of our headsets compared to March of 2019.

“We believe these results continue to be a testament to our strong brand, excellent products and our execution at retail. This is especially true in times like these, where retail, supply chain and operational execution can make a big difference both to us and to our retail partners.

“While it is not clear at this point how long this increased demand will continue, we now expect full year revenues, adjusted EBITDA and net income per diluted share to exceed our earlier forecasts. We recognize that these are unprecedented times and that consumer demand and retail supply logistics could fluctuate depending on the course of the pandemic and the response by governments and consumers.” 

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $35.0 million compared to $44.8 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease was the result of the expected decline from the record levels of demand in the prior year quarter due to the battle royale-driven increase in users throughout the prior year  and a strong slate of triple-A game releases in holiday 2018. In addition, the overall market for console gaming accessories this quarter was expected to be lower due to the announcements of new Xbox and PlayStation consoles coming later this year. These impacts were partially offset by the increased sales in March due to state and local stay-at-home orders. On a constant currency basis, revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $35.1 million.

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2020 was 30.8% compared to 33.0% in the first quarter of 2019. This expected decrease was primarily due to the continued impact of tariffs and a decline in volume-based fixed cost leverage, partially offset by a more favorable business mix.

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2020 were $15.8 million compared to $13.0 million in the 2019 period, with the increase due primarily to the inclusion of costs associated with the acquisition of ROCCAT, which was completed in May of 2019. 

Net loss in the first quarter of 2020 was $3.6 million compared to net income of $3.1 million in the year-ago quarter. The decline was primarily driven by the expected decline in revenue and the expected increase in operating expenses.

Net loss per share in the first quarter of 2020 was $0.25 on 14.5 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income per share of $0.09 on 16.3 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted net loss (as defined below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in the first quarter of 2020 was $3.4 million, or $(0.23) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $2.2 million, or $0.13 per share, in the corresponding period in 2019. 

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in the first quarter of 2020 was $(2.7) million compared to $4.3 million in the year-ago quarter.

Balance Sheet Highlights

At March 31, 2020, the Company had $8.7 million of cash and cash equivalents with $0.3 million of outstanding debt under its revolving line of credit. This compares to $10.2 million of cash and cash equivalents with no outstanding debt under its revolving credit facility at March 31, 2019. 

Revised 2020 Outlook       

For the second quarter of 2020, the Company expects revenue to range between $42 million and $47 million. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $(2.0) million and breakeven. Net loss per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.27) and $(0.17), and adjusted loss per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.24) and $(0.14), both reflecting the aforementioned revenue and EBITDA forecasts. Per share figures for the second quarter of 2020 assume approximately 14.5 million diluted shares outstanding.

For the full year 2020, the Company now expects revenue to range between $224 million and $234 million (versus the prior range of $214 million to $224 million). The annual revenue forecast reflects an anticipated decline in the overall console headset market ahead of the new console launches partially offset by increased demand resulting from stay-at-home orders. Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to range between $9 million and $14 million (versus the prior range of $5 million and $10 million), reflecting the higher expected revenues for the year and the continuation of planned marketing and new product-related investments of approximately $9 million to expand the Company’s position in the PC accessories market. Net income (loss) per diluted share is now expected to range between $(0.22) and $0.03, compared to prior guidance of a range of $(0.46) to $(0.13). Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share is expected to range between $(0.16) and $0.09, compared to prior guidance of a range of $(0.45) to $(0.12), both reflecting the aforementioned revenue and EBITDA forecasts. Per share figures for the full year 2020 assume approximately 15 million diluted shares outstanding.

With respect to the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook for the second quarter and full year 2020, a reconciliation to its net income (loss) outlook for the same periods has not been provided because of the variability, complexity, and lack of visibility with respect to certain reconciling items between adjusted EBITDA and net income (loss), including other income (expense), provision for income taxes and stock-based compensation. These items cannot be reasonably and accurately predicted without the investment of undue time, cost and other resources and, accordingly, a reconciliation of the Company’s adjusted EBITDA outlook to its net income (loss) outlook for such periods is not provided. These reconciling items could be material to the Company’s actual results for such periods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to its reported results, the Company has included in this earnings release certain financial results, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and constant currency revenue, that the Securities and Exchange Commission defines as “non-GAAP financial measures.” Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s reported results, can provide useful supplemental information for investors analyzing period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s results. “Adjusted Net Income” is defined as net income excluding (i) integration and transaction costs related to the acquisition of the business and assets related to the ROCCAT brand, (ii) the effect of the mark-to-market requirement of the financial instrument obligation, (iii) any change in fair value of contingent consideration and (iv) the release of valuation allowances on deferred tax assets. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined by the Company as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation (non-cash), and certain non-recurring items that we believe are not representative of core operations (e.g., the integration and transaction costs related to the acquisition of the business and assets related to the ROCCAT brand, the mark-to-market adjustment for the financial instrument obligation and the change in fair value of contingent consideration). “Constant currency revenue” is defined by the Company as revenue excluding the impacts of fluctuations in exchange rates from prior periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented because management uses non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance, to perform financial planning, and to determine incentive compensation. Therefore, the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors. The presented non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that management does not believe reflect the Company’s core operating performance because such items are inherently unusual, non-operating, unpredictable, non-recurring, or non-cash.
