  • Posted Adjusted Net Loss of $5.8 million, or $0.31 per share on a share count of 22.1 million shares, compared to an Adjusted Net Loss of $7.0 million in the prior-year period.3
  • Reported Adjusted EBITDA4 of $6.8 million, compared to $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Q3 2021 Operating Highlights

  • Opened 68 new studios, increasing total studio count to 1,907 at the end of the third quarter of 2021.
  • Sold 248 franchise licenses, compared to 50 in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Reported fifth consecutive quarter of sequential North American system-wide sales improvement, representing consistent system recovery since the second quarter of 2020.
  • Nearly 90% North American run-rate average unit volume (AUV)5 recovery compared to January 31, 2020.

“Xponential achieved strong results for the third quarter 2021, including net revenues of $40.9 million, an increase of 60% year-over-year and up 14% sequentially,” said Anthony Geisler, Chief Executive Officer of Xponential Fitness, Inc. “We are thrilled with the continued momentum of our business, with third quarter actively paying members and visitation rates increasing by approximately 60% and 70%, respectively, year-over-year. Brick-and-mortar gyms are back, and boutique fitness customers are excited to return to in-person fitness across our growing franchised studio base.”

“Our strong financial performance, combined with our operational excellence, have paved the way for continued momentum in the fourth quarter. We were thrilled to welcome our 10th brand, BFT, in early October. BFT has transformed our global growth trajectory, adding over 130 new international locations, and bringing a new modality, functional training, to our family of brands. In addition, we recently announced a strategic partnership with LA Fitness, providing our franchisees with even greater opportunities to expand within their protected geographic territories by opening studios within over 500 LA Fitness and City Sports Club locations. I’d like to thank the entire Xponential Fitness team and all of our franchisees for their hard work and dedication to our business,” Mr. Geisler concluded.

Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2021

Please note that all information discussed herein does not include contributions from acquisitions or partnerships made subsequent to the third quarter, including the Company’s newest brand BFT, which was acquired in October 2021, and its partnership with Fitness International, for which studio build out will not begin until Q1 2022.

For the third quarter 2021, total revenue increased $15.3 million, or 60%, to $40.9 million, up from $25.6 million in the prior-year period. This increase in revenue included a corresponding North American same store sales increase of 65% year-over-year.

Net loss totaled $8.9 million, or a loss of $0.38 per share, compared to a loss of $1.9 million in the prior-year period. The increase in net loss year-over-year was the result of $4.1 million of higher overall profitability, offset by a $3.1 million increase in non-cash equity-based compensation expense and an $8.0 million increase in non-cash contingent consideration related to Xponential’s acquisitions.

Adjusted Net Loss for the third quarter 2021, which excludes the $2.9 million non-cash contingent consideration and $0.2 million related to tax receivable agreement (TRA) remeasurement, was $5.8 million, or $0.31 per share on a share count of 22.1 million shares.

Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for equity-based compensation, acquisition & transaction expenses, management fees, integration and related expenses, litigation expenses, and TRA remeasurement, increased to $6.8 million, up from $1.5 million in the prior-year period.

Xponential believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures such as Adjusted Net Income or Loss and Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Net Income or Loss per share, when considered along with other performance measures, better reflect the underlying operating results of the Company and provide an enhanced overall understanding of current and future financial performance.For a reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP measures discussed in this release, please see the tables at the end of this press release.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $25.5 million of cash and cash equivalents and $94.0 million in total debt. Net cash provided by operating activities was $3.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

2021 Outlook

Based on current business conditions, the BFT acquisition, and future expectations as of the date of this release, the Company is increasing its outlook for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. Please note that such outlook is subject to risks and uncertainties, including the risk of further restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as government mandated studio closures, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business and financial performance. Full year 2021 guidance is as follows:

  • New studio openings in the range of 230 to 250; this compares to previous guidance of 215 to 235 studio openings;
  • North America system-wide sales in the range of $690.0 million to $700.0 million, or an increase of 57% at the midpoint as compared to full year 2020;
  • Revenue in the range of $147.0 million to $148.5 million, or an increase of 39% at the midpoint as compared to full year 2020; this compares to previous guidance of $135.5 million to $137.0 million; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $25.0 million to $26.0 million, or an increase of 160% at the midpoint as compared to full year 2020; this compares to previous guidance of $22.0 million to $23.0 million.

Additional key assumptions for full year 2021 include:

  • Tax rate of approximately 5%;
  • Share count of 22.1 million shares of Class A common stock. Please note that this share count does not include potential shares vested by Rumble through the contingent consideration entered into on March 24, 2021. For more information on the Rumble non-cash charge, please see the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC; and
  • $3.25 million in quarterly dividends paid related to the $200 million Preferred Convertible note.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance. We use certain non-GAAP financial information, such as EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income or Loss, and Adjusted Net Income or Loss per share, which adjust for acquisition-related expenses, certain non-cash charges, and other unusual non-operating or non-recurring items that we believe are not representative of our core business or future operating performance, to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively with comparable GAAP financial measures, is helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance, and provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations or outlook. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measure as tools for comparison. We seek to compensate such limitations by providing a detailed reconciliation for the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures stated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Other unknown or unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.

Note: The above Adjusted Net Loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss attributable to holders of Class A common stock by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding during the period. Shares of Class B common stock do not participate in the earnings or losses of Xponential Fitness, Inc. As a result, the shares of Class B common stock are not considered participating securities and are not included in the weighted average shares outstanding for purposes of computing pro forma loss per share. As previously noted, total share count does not include potential future shares vested upon achieving certain earn-out thresholds. Net income, however, continues to take into account the non-cash contingent liability due to Rumble.

1System-wide sales represent gross sales by all studios. System-wide sales includes sales by franchisees that are not revenue realized by us in accordance with GAAP. While we do not record sales by franchisees as revenue, and such sales are not included in our consolidated financial statements, this operating metric relates to our revenue because we receive approximately 7% and 2% of the sales by franchisees as royalty revenue and marketing fund revenue, respectively. We believe that this operating measure aids in understanding how we derive our royalty revenue and marketing fund revenue and is important in evaluating our performance. System-wide sales growth is driven by new studio openings and increases in same store sales. Management reviews system-wide sales monthly, which enables us to assess changes in our franchise revenue, overall studio performance, the health of our brands and the strength of our market position relative to competitors.

2 Same store sales refer to period-over-period sales comparisons for the base of studios. We define the same store sales base to include studios in North America that have been open for at least 13 calendar months as of the measurement date. Any transfer of ownership of a studio does not affect this metric. We measure same store sales based solely upon monthly sales as reported by franchisees. This measure highlights the performance of existing studios, while excluding the impact of new studio openings. Management reviews same store sales to assess the health of the franchised studios.

3No comparison of Adjusted Net Loss per share to Q3 2020 is provided as such comparison is not meaningful given the Company’s pre-IPO capital structure.

4We define adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA (net income/loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include equity-based compensation, acquisition and transaction expenses (income) (including change in contingent consideration), management fees and expenses (that were discontinued after July 2021), integration and related expenses, litigation expenses (consisting of legal and related fees for specific proceedings that arise outside of the ordinary course of our business) and TRA remeasurement that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance and affect comparability. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We believe that adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance. We believe that adjusted EBITDA, viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, our reported GAAP results, provides useful information to investors regarding our performance and overall results of operations because it eliminates the impact of other items that we believe reduce the comparability of our underlying core business performance from period to period and is therefore useful to our investors in comparing the core performance of our business from period to period.

5AUV is calculated by dividing sales during the applicable period for all studios being measured by the number of studios being measured. Quarterly run-rate AUV is calculated as the quarterly AUV multiplied by four, for studios that are at least 6 months old at the beginning of the respective quarter. Monthly run-rate AUV is calculated as the monthly AUV multiplied by twelve, for studios that are at least 6 months old at the beginning of the respective month. AUV growth is primarily driven by changes in same store sales and is also influenced by new studio openings. Management reviews AUV to assess studio economics.
