Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenue increase was driven by Topgolf same venue sales, which were in line with third quarter 2019 pre-pandemic levels, and higher-than-expected strength across both the Golf Equipment and Apparel, Gear and Other segments, as demand remained high for golf and outdoor activities.
  • Non-GAAP income from operations increased $15 million year-over-year, led by the addition of $24 million in operating income from the Topgolf business and a $9 million increase in operating income from the Apparel, Gear and Other business, but partially offset by lower golf equipment operating income as spending levels returned to normal levels versus the lower levels seen in 2020.
  • Non-GAAP other income/(expense), net decreased $(19) million to $(22) million, primarily due to a $16 million increase in interest expense related to the addition of Topgolf as well as lower hedge gains versus the prior year period.
  • Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was $0.14 in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $0.61 per share in the third quarter of 2020. Fully diluted shares were 194 million shares of common stock in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 97 million shares compared to 97 million shares in the third quarter of 2020. The increased share count is primarily related to the issuance of additional shares in connection with the Topgolf merger.
  • The Adjusted EBITDA increase of $51 million was driven by a $59 million contribution from the Topgolf business, and was partially offset by increased operating expenditures and the legacy business spending levels returned to normal levels.
  • Subsequent to quarter-end, on November 1, 2021, Callaway announced a $30 million minority investment in Five Iron Golf, an emerging, privately-owned, urban indoor golf and entertainment company offering simulator rentals, golf lessons, custom club fittings, social events and a curated food and beverage menu.

Third Quarter 2021 Segment Highlights

  • Topgolf
    • Contributed $334 million of revenue and $24 million of segment operating income in the third quarter of 2021, driven primarily by strong domestic venue walk-in traffic, better-than-expected event bookings, and new incremental venue openings
    • Same venue sales surpassed expectations in the quarter, increasing to approximately 100% of the 2019 level and generating strong flow-through to Adjusted EBITDA
    • Opened eight new domestic locations in the first nine months of 2021, including two locations opened during the third quarter of 2021; one additional planned location expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2021
  • Golf equipment
    • Revenue increased 8.4% year-over-year and 37.6% compared to third quarter 2019 pre-pandemic levels, driven by the continued strong demand for golf products and participation in the game and improved supply chain performance
    • Golf club sales increased 9.5% year-over-year and 36.5% compared to third quarter 2019 pre-pandemic levels, amid significant growth in sales volume across all major product categories resulting from continued unprecedented momentum in the golf business and the success of the new EPIC woods and APEX irons, which outweighed supply chain disruptions
    • Golf ball sales increased 4.1% during the quarter and 41.8% compared to third quarter 2019 pre-pandemic levels, as demand and market share increased
    • Golf Equipment segment operating income decreased 19.3% due to higher freight costs and a return to more normal levels of spend
  • Apparel, Gear and Other
    • Revenue increased 11.9% year-over-year, driven by a 19.6% increase in apparel sales across TravisMathew, Jack Wolfskin and Callaway brands, despite global supply chain headwinds
    • Operating income for the Apparel, Gear and Other segment increased $9 million year-over-year to $35 million in the third quarter of 2021

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

The full year 2021 projections set forth below are based on the Company’s best estimates at this time. They include the estimated impact of certain factors, including (1) ongoing impact of COVID-19 on the supply chain, (2) changes in foreign currency effects, which are estimated to have a positive full year impact of $33 million on net sales, and (3) increased freight costs. In addition, due to the timing of the Topgolf acquisition on March 8, 2021, Callaway’s reported full year financial results will only include approximately ten months of Topgolf results in 2021 and therefore will not include January and February results which were in the aggregate $142.9 million in revenue and $2.3 million in Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA: Full year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA estimate assumes the Topgolf segment will deliver approximately $158 million in Adjusted EBITDA for the ten months beginning March 8, 2021, amid strong revenue flow-through.

Non-GAAP Information

The GAAP results contained in this press release and the financial statement schedules attached to this press release have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).  To supplement the GAAP results, the Company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as follows:

Constant Currency Basis. The Company provided certain information regarding the Company’s financial results or projected financial results on a “constant currency basis.” This information estimates the impact of changes in foreign currency rates on the translation of the Company’s current or projected future period financial results as compared to the applicable comparable period.  This impact is derived by taking the current or projected local currency results and translating them into U.S. dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates for the applicable comparable period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the Company’s results or business.

Non-Recurring and Non-cash Adjustments. The Company provided information excluding certain non-cash amortization of intangibles and other assets related to the Company’s acquisitions, non-recurring transaction and transition costs related to acquisitions, severance costs related to the Company’s cost-reduction initiatives, and other non-recurring costs, including costs related to the merger and integration with Topgolf, transition to the Company’s new North American Distribution Center, implementation of new IT systems, the cumulative $39 million non-cash valuation allowance recorded against certain of the Company’s deferred tax assets as a result of the Topgolf merger, the $253 million non-cash gain as the result of the Company’s prior equity position in Topgolf, the $174 million non-cash impairment charge related to the Jack Wolfskin goodwill and trade name, as well as non-cash amortization of the debt discount related to the Company’s convertible notes.

Adjusted EBITDA.  The Company provides information about its results excluding interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, non-cash stock compensation expense, non-cash lease amortization expense, and the non-recurring and non-cash items referenced above. 

In addition, the Company has included in the schedules attached to this release a reconciliation of certain non-GAAP information to the most directly comparable GAAP information.  The non-GAAP information presented in this release and related schedules should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measure derived in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP information may also be inconsistent with the manner in which similar measures are derived or used by other companies.  Management uses such non-GAAP information for financial and operational decision-making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-over-period comparisons and in forecasting the Company’s business going forward. Management believes that the presentation of such non-GAAP information, when considered in conjunction with the most directly comparable GAAP information, provides additional useful comparative information for investors in their assessment of the underlying performance of the Company’s business with regard to these items. The Company has provided reconciling information in the attached schedules.

Definitions

Same venue sales. Callaway defines same venue sales for its Topgolf business as sales for the comparable venue base, which is defined as the number of Company-operated venues with at least 24 full fiscal months of operations.

These statements are based upon current information and expectations. Accurately estimating the forward-looking statements is based upon various risks and unknowns, including disruptions to business operations from additional regulatory restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (such as travel restrictions, government-mandated shut-down orders or quarantines) or voluntary “social distancing” that affects employees, customers and suppliers; costs, expenses or difficulties related to the merger with Topgolf, including the integration of the Topgolf business; failure to realize the expected benefits and synergies of the Topgolf merger in the expected timeframes or at all; production delays, closures of manufacturing facilities, retail locations, warehouses and supply and distribution chains; staffing shortages as a result of remote working requirements or otherwise; uncertainty regarding global economic conditions, particularly the uncertainty related to the duration and ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and related decreases in customer demand/spending and ongoing increases in operating and freight costs; global supply chain constraints and challenges; the Company’s level of indebtedness; continued availability of credit facilities and liquidity and ability to comply with applicable debt covenants; effectiveness of capital allocation and cost/expense reduction efforts; continued brand momentum and product success; growth in the direct-to-consumer and e-commerce channels; ability to realize the benefits of the continued investments in the Company’s business; consumer acceptance of and demand for the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ products and services; cost of living and inflationary  pressures; any changes in U.S. trade, tax or other policies, including restrictions on imports or an increase in import tariffs; future consumer discretionary purchasing activity, which can be significantly adversely affected by unfavorable economic or market conditions; future retailer purchasing activity, which can be significantly negatively affected by adverse industry conditions and overall retail inventory levels; and future changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the degree of effectiveness of the Company’s hedging programs. Actual results may differ materially from those estimated or anticipated as a result of these risks and unknowns or other risks and uncertainties, including the effect of terrorist activity, armed conflict, natural disasters or pandemic diseases, including expanded outbreak of COVID-19 and its variants, on the economy generally, on the level of demand for the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ products and services or on the Company’s ability to manage its operations, supply chain and delivery logistics in such an environment; delays, difficulties or increased costs in the supply of components or commodities needed to manufacture the Company’s products or in manufacturing the Company’s products; and a decrease in participation levels in golf generally, during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
