Quotes:

  • Eric Affeldt, chief executive officer:  “We are pleased to deliver our twelfth consecutive quarter of revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth. As we celebrate ClubCorp's 60th anniversary this year, the Company remains firmly committed to executing its three-pronged growth strategy focused on organic growth, reinvention and acquisitions. We are particularly excited about the pacing of acquisitions, as we have already added four new clubs to our golf and country club segment this year as compared to three clubs added in fiscal 2016. Additionally, we completed a lease agreement to construct a new concept business / social club named "The Collective" that will open next year in Seattle. In each case, these clubs are expected to drive additional return on investment and further expand the value of our local, regional and national networks.”

  • Mark Burnett, president and chief operating officer:  “We continue to see increased member activity and usage at our recently reinvented and acquired clubs. In the first twelve weeks of fiscal 2017, we achieved another quarter of adjusted EBITDA growth, benefiting greatly from improved performance at these clubs. Likewise, our O.N.E. offering continues to appeal to our members with approximately 54% of our memberships enrolled in O.N.E.. We are excited by the positive momentum in our golf and country club business and are gearing up for what we expect will be a busy golf season this spring and into the summer.”

  • Curt McClellan, chief financial officer: “We delivered solid results in our first quarter of 2017. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA growth of 4.2% during the quarter was in line with our expectations following last year's impressive growth of 8.2%. Consolidated revenues grew 3.0% for the quarter and overall adjusted EBITDA margins improved 30 bps to 19.8% while same store margins improved 20 bps to 27.3%. Our reinvention projects and acquisitions are performing as expected, significantly increasing member usage. Our leverage is 4.27x currently and we remain committed to de-levering the Company to below 4x by mid-2018."

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA (“Adjusted EBITDA”) is a key financial measure used by our management to (1) internally measure our operating performance, (2) evaluate segment performance and allocate resources and support certain valuation analyses and (3) assess our ability to service our debt, incur additional debt, make acquisitions, pay dividends and make capital expenditures. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and lenders as a performance measure because it adjusts our operating results to be reflective of our core, ongoing, operating performance. As such, Adjusted EBITDA provides relevant information about trends for the periods presented and adjusts for the impact of certain items on a consistent basis from period to period. We believe this measure allows investors and lenders to evaluate performance using the same metrics that management uses to evaluate performance and plan annual budgets. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful as a liquidity measure because it demonstrates our ability to service our debt, incur additional debt, make acquisitions, pay dividends and make capital expenditures.

EBITDA is defined as net income before interest expense, income taxes, interest and investment income, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA plus or minus impairments, gain or loss on disposition and acquisition of assets, losses from divested clubs, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash and other adjustments, equity-based compensation expense and a deferred revenue adjustment. The deferred revenue  adjustment to revenues and Adjusted EBITDA within each segment represents estimated deferred revenue using current membership life estimates related to initiation payments that would have been recognized in the applicable period but for the application of purchase accounting. Adjusted EBITDA is based on the definition of Consolidated EBITDA as defined in the credit agreement governing our senior secured credit facilities and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The credit agreement governing our senior secured credit facilities and the indenture governing our senior notes contain certain covenants which are based upon specified financial ratios in reference to Adjusted EBITDA, after giving effect to the pro forma impact of acquisitions. Adjusted EBITDA as reported is identical to the computation of Consolidated EBITDA as defined in the credit agreement governing our senior secured credit facilities, except that for purposes of certain covenants in the credit agreement, a pro forma adjustment is made to Consolidated EBITDA in order to give effect to current period acquisitions as though they had been consummated on the first day of the four quarter period presented. The pro forma impact gives effect to all acquisitions in the four quarters ended March 21, 2017 as though they had been consummated on the first day of second quarter of fiscal year 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA is not determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation, more meaningful than or as a substitute for a measure of performance or liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP and is not indicative of net income or loss or operating cash flows as determined under GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations that should be considered before used as measures to evaluate the Company's financial performance or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to varying methods of calculation.

The financial statement tables that accompany this press release include a reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the applicable and most comparable GAAP financial measures.  The Company has not reconciled Adjusted EBITDA guidance included in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because this cannot be done without unreasonable effort due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to impairments and disposition of assets, income taxes and centralization and transformation costs which are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. We expect the variability of these charges to have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.
