RH Raises FY 2019 Earnings Guidance as a Result of Closing $350 Million Convertible Notes Offering
RH (NYSE: RH) announced today the closing of the sale of $350 million aggregate principal amount of its 0.00% convertible notes due 2024, including the full exercise of the $50 million over-allotment option.
As previously announced, RH will apply proceeds from the offering to retire the Company’s $200 million of outstanding second lien debt as well as reduce outstanding borrowings under its credit facilities. Based upon the final terms of the convertible notes offering and the reduction in outstanding balances of debt bearing higher interest rates than the 0% convertible notes, the Company is raising its FY 2019 adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance by $0.25 to a range of $10.78 to $11.01, and expects an approximate $0.75 per share benefit to adjusted diluted earnings per share in fiscal 2020.

These “forward looking” statements include statements relating to, among other things, the proposed offering of the notes, the expected use of the net proceeds from these transactions, the Company’s expectations regarding a reduction in interest expense, the Company’s expectations regarding an increase in adjusted diluted earnings per share, and any statements or assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause results to differ materially from the statements set forth in this press release. The forward-looking statements in this press release speak only as of the date of this press release and are subject to uncertainty and changes.

RH expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to such forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations with regard thereto or any changes in the events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of the Company’s estimate regarding the increase in adjusted diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2019 or fiscal year 2020 to the corresponding GAAP measure without unreasonable effort because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of certain charges and gains removed from the corresponding GAAP measure in computing adjusted diluted earnings per share.
