What happened in FY21 for Temple and Webster
The Temple and Webster share price is in focus on Monday after reporting its full-year results for the 12 months ended 30 June. It turned out to be a record year for the online retailer in terms of revenue, profit, and customers.
According to the release, Temple and Webster racked in total revenue of $326.3 million in FY21 — reflecting an increase of 85% on the prior year. This substantial increase in sales revenue was assisted by a surge in online shopping following imposed government lockdowns.
The company made no secrets that COVID-19 has brought forward adoption for its offering. However, it was noted that these growth trends remained in place while there were little to no restrictions on trading.
Furthermore, Temple and Webster ended the financial year in a strong cash position after performing a $40 million capital raise and delivering a record profit. As such, the company holds a cash balance of $97.5 million. This opens up optionality for inorganic growth opportunities if/when they present themselves. Although, an EBITDA margin of 2% to 4% in the short term was highlighted as its re-investment strategy continues.
What did management say?
Commenting on the result, Temple and Webster Chief Executive Officer Mark Coulter said:
FY21 was another great year for Company, with full-year revenue up 85% to $326.3m and EBITDA up 141% to $20.5m. While we don’t take for granted how fortunate we are to be able to trade through lockdowns, we believe COVID has accelerated the shift from offline to online that was already in progress. We remain focused on giving our customers a great experience, and hopefully having them enjoy their homes, even just a little bit more, during these tough times.
Additionally, with respect to the company’s performance so far in FY22, Mr Coulter said:
While the start of FY22 has been difficult for many Australians, we remain focused on strengthening our customer proposition, built around having the biggest and best range of furniture and homewares, combined with inspirational content and a great customer service experience.
What’s next for Temple and Webster?
The new financial year has been a strong one so far. Specifically, year-over-year revenue growth for between 1st July and 27th August 2021 compared to the year prior is 49%. At the same time, management highlighted the company continues to experience strong tailwinds.
The board expects the business to benefit from ongoing online shopping adoption, an acceleration in trends from COVID-19, an increase in discretionary income, and strong housing market growth. Unfortunately, no further details pertaining to forward guidance were supplied.
Meanwhile, Temple and Webster intend to continue its reinvestment strategy to grow market leadership. This is in line with the company’s goal of becoming the largest retailer of furniture and homewares in its market.
