LEXINGTON, Ky., August 4, 2021 – Valvoline Inc. (NYSE: VVV), a leading provider of automotive services and premium branded lubricants, today reported financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021. All comparisons in this press release are made to the same prior-year period; however, comparisons to 2019 have also been included to normalize for the impacts of COVID-19.

“The strength of our team, brand and business model drove exceptional results this quarter, with operating income growing 28% and adjusted EBITDA growing 35% versus Q3 2019," said Sam Mitchell, CEO. “Our strategic transformation to a service-driven business continues to accelerate our growth, margins and earnings. In addition, secular growth of key industry drivers, such as vehicles in operation, miles driven and age of vehicles, continue to drive global demand for Valvoline’s products and preventive maintenance services.”

The Retail Services segment delivered much of the year-over-year growth this quarter with over 40% system-wide SSS growth and 10% system-wide unit growth while profitability more than doubled. Retail Services is forecasted to deliver 6 to 8% normalized SSS growth and 5 to 7% unit growth annually across the system over the Company's long-range plan through 2024.

Mitchell continued, “System-wide same-store sales increased 27% versus Q3 2019. We continue to gain share and expand average ticket, including ongoing growth in non-oil change revenue, highlighting the broad array of preventive maintenance services performed at our nearly 1,600 stores.”

1


The Global Products segment delivered year-over-year sales growth of 46%, exceeding volume growth of 37%, demonstrating the pricing power of the business. Sales and volume grew 15% and 9%, respectively, versus Q3 2019. Operating income and adjusted EBITDA grew 16% and 17% year-over-year, respectively, and grew 6% and 3% versus 2019. Slower growth in profitability reflects the near-term impacts of rising raw material costs that the Company expects to recover over time.

“We expect our Global Products segment to deliver $200 million of discretionary free cash flow this fiscal year, highlighting the resilience of the business,” said Mitchell. “Global Products is a strong cash generator for Valvoline with a strategic focus on driving market share growth globally by leveraging our 150-year-old brand and technology.”

Business Realignment and Reporting Changes

As announced on May 18, 2021, Valvoline realigned its global operations and related reporting, beginning in the fiscal third quarter of 2021. Refer to the Basis of Presentation section below for further information.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
Total debt of approximately $1.7 billion and net debt of approximately $1.5 billion
Year-to-date cash flow from operations of $296 million; discretionary free cash flow of $275 million; and free cash flow of $190 million

Outlook

“Our transformation is accelerating," Mitchell added. "Our cash generation is funding our continued shift to services, which we believe leads to sustainable shareholder value creation. We have invested nearly $330 million in acquisitions and capex so far this fiscal year to drive store growth, which we expect will generate strong returns. We are tightening the guidance that we announced at our recent business update call for adjusted EBITDA to $620 million to $640 million."

"Additionally, we expect to continue returning excess cash to shareholders via dividends and share repurchases using our recently announced $300 million share repurchase authorization.”

Information regarding the Company's outlook for fiscal 2021 is provided in the table below:

1 Same-store sales growth adjusted for estimated COVID-19 impacts in March - May 2020 period; based on average two-year same-store sales growth between fiscal 2020 and 2021 outlook.

Valvoline’s outlook for adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS and the adjusted effective tax rate are non-GAAP financial measures that are expected to be adjusted for items impacting comparability. Valvoline is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP net income and EPS estimated for fiscal 2021 without unreasonable efforts, as the Company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP net income and EPS in fiscal 2021 but would not impact non-GAAP adjusted results.

Conference Call Webcast
Valvoline will host a live audio webcast of its fiscal third quarter 2021 conference call at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, August 5, 2021. The webcast and supporting materials will be accessible through Valvoline’s website at http://investors.valvoline.com.

Basis of Presentation
Valvoline realigned its global operations and related reporting during the third quarter of fiscal 2021 to manage its business through two operating segments, Retail Services and Global Products. Prior period amounts presented herein have been recast to conform to the current presentation consistent with the realignment of Valvoline’s global operations. These changes have no impact on the Company’s historical consolidated GAAP balance sheets, statements of income or cash flows.

In addition, the Company adopted the current expected credit losses accounting standard, effective at the beginning of fiscal 2021 using the required modified retrospective approach. Under this approach, financial information related to periods prior to adoption were not adjusted and are presented as originally reported under the previous accounting guidance. The effects of adopting the new current expected credit losses standard were recognized as an adjustment that increased opening retained deficit by approximately $2 million. The Company expects the ongoing impacts will not be material to the consolidated financial statements.

Key Business Measures
Valvoline tracks its operating performance and manages its business using certain key measures, including system-wide, company-operated and franchised store counts and SSS; system-wide store sales; and lubricant volumes sold. Management believes these measures are useful to evaluating and understanding Valvoline’s operating performance and should be considered as supplements to, not substitutes for, Valvoline's sales and operating income, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Sales in the Retail Services reportable segment are influenced by the number of service center stores and the business performance of those stores. Stores are considered open upon acquisition or opening for business. Temporary store closings remain in the respective store counts with only permanent store closures reflected in the activity and end of period store counts. SSS is defined as sales by U.S. Retail Services stores (company-operated, franchised and the combination of these for system-wide SSS), with new stores, including franchised conversions, excluded from the metric until the completion of their first full fiscal year in operation as this period is generally required for new store sales levels to begin to normalize.

Retail Services sales are limited to sales at company-operated stores, sales of lubricants and other products to independent franchisees and Express Care operators and royalties and other fees from franchised stores. Although Valvoline does not recognize store-level sales from franchised stores as sales in its Statements of Consolidated Income, management believes system-wide and franchised SSS comparisons, store counts, and total system-wide store sales are useful to assess market position relative to competitors and overall store and segment operating performance.

Management believes lubricant volumes sold in gallons by its consolidated subsidiaries is a useful measure in evaluating and understanding the operating performance of the Global Products segment. Volumes sold in other units of measure, including liters, are converted to gallons utilizing standard conversions.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, certain items within this press release are presented on an adjusted basis. These non-GAAP measures, presented on both a consolidated and operating segment basis, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, the financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP information used by management may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because of differing methods used in calculating such measures.

This press release includes the following non-GAAP measures: segment adjusted operating income, consolidated EBITDA, consolidated and segment adjusted EBITDA, consolidated adjusted net income and earnings per share, consolidated free cash flow, and consolidated and segment discretionary free cash flow. Refer to Tables 4-5 and 7-9 for management's definition of each non-GAAP measure and reconciliation to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure.

Management believes the use of non-GAAP measures on a consolidated and operating segment basis provides a useful supplemental presentation of Valvoline's operating performance and allows for transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating the business and measuring performance. Management believes EBITDA measures provide a meaningful supplemental presentation of Valvoline’s operating performance between periods on a comparable basis due to the depreciable assets associated with the nature of the Company’s operations and interest costs related to Valvoline’s capital structure.

Adjusted profitability measures enable comparison of financial trends and results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of certain unusual, infrequent or non-operational activity not directly attributable to the underlying business, which management believes impacts the comparability of operational results between periods ("key items"). Key items are often related to legacy matters or market-driven events considered by management to not be reflective of the ongoing operating performance. Key items may consist of adjustments related to: legacy businesses, including the separation from Valvoline's former parent company and associated impacts of related indemnities; significant acquisitions or divestitures; restructuring-related matters; tax reform legislation; debt extinguishment and modification costs; and other matters that are non-operational or unusual in nature, including the following:

Net pension and other postretirement plan expense/income - includes several elements impacted by changes in plan assets and obligations that are primarily driven by changes in the debt and equity markets, as well as those that are predominantly legacy in nature and related to prior service to the Company from employees (e.g., retirees, former employees and current employees with frozen benefits). These elements include (i) interest cost, (ii) expected return on plan assets, (iii) actuarial gains/losses, and (iv) amortization of prior service cost/credit. Significant factors that can contribute to changes in these elements include changes in discount rates used to remeasure pension and other postretirement obligations on an annual basis or upon a qualifying remeasurement, differences between actual and expected returns on plan assets, and other changes in actuarial assumptions, such as the life expectancy of plan participants. Accordingly,

management considers that these elements may be more reflective of changes in current conditions in global financial markets (in particular, interest rates), outside the operational performance of the business, and are also primarily legacy amounts that are not directly related to the underlying business and do not have an immediate, corresponding impact on the compensation and benefits provided to eligible employees for current service. Adjusted profitability measures include the costs of benefits provided to employees for current service, including pension and other postretirement service costs.

Changes in the last-in, first out (LIFO) inventory reserve - charges or credits recognized in Cost of sales to value certain lubricant inventories at the lower of cost or market using the LIFO method. During inflationary or deflationary pricing environments, the application of LIFO can result in variability of the cost of sales recognized each period as the most recent costs are matched against current sales, while preceding costs are retained in inventories. LIFO adjustments are determined based on published prices, which are difficult to predict and largely dependent on future events. The application of LIFO can impact comparability and enhance the lag period effects between changes in inventory costs and related pricing adjustments.

Management uses free cash flow and discretionary free cash flow as additional non-GAAP metrics of cash flow generation. By including capital expenditures and certain other adjustments, as applicable, management is able to provide an indication of the ongoing cash being generated that is ultimately available for both debt and equity holders as well as other investment opportunities. Free cash flow includes the impact of capital expenditures, providing a supplemental view of cash generation. Discretionary free cash flow includes maintenance capital expenditures, which are routine uses of cash that are necessary to maintain the Company's operations and provides a supplemental view of cash flow generation to maintain operations before discretionary investments in growth. Free cash flow and discretionary free cash flow have certain limitations, including that they do not reflect adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows, such as mandatory debt repayments. The amount of mandatory versus discretionary expenditures can vary significantly between periods.
