Gary Friedman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Exiting fiscal 2016, we are now through the most uncertain stages of our transformation. We made several strategic investments and changes to our business last year, which temporarily depressed financial results in the short term, that we believe will strengthen our brand and position the business for accelerated growth in fiscal 2017 and beyond. These temporal issues included the costs related to the launch of RH Modern, the timing of recognizing membership revenues related to the transition from a promotional to a membership model, efforts to rationalize our SKU count, and the decision to push our 2016 RH Interiors Source Book mailing from spring to fall."

"2016 was a year of transformation and transition at RH. We transformed our business from a promotional to a membership model that we believe will enhance our brand, streamline our operations, and vastly improve the customer experience. We also began the redesign of our supply chain network, transitioning inventory into fewer facilities, which enabled us to forgo building a planned distribution center scheduled to open in 2017. 2016 was also the first full year of many new business initiatives such as RH Modern, RH Teen, RH Hospitality, the redesign of our RH Interiors Source Book, the roll out of Design Ateliers in our retail Galleries, and the addition of Waterworks to our platform. All of these new initiatives are expected to contribute to growth in 2017 and beyond."

"While 2016 was a year of transformation and transition, 2017 will be a year of execution, architecture, and cash flow at RH. Our focus will be on executing our new business model, architecting a new back-end operating platform, and maximizing cash flow. While our investment strategy will always maintain a long-term view, we believe we can improve working capital and returns by having a more disciplined approach to capital allocation. Accordingly, we plan to reduce our new Gallery opening cadence to a range of 3 to 5 per year, which is expected to drive high-quality sustainable growth, while lowering capital requirements and execution risk over the course of our real estate transformation. We remain confident in reaching our long term goal of $4 to $5 billion in North American revenues, mid-teens operating margins, significant free cash flow, and industry-leading returns on invested capital."

First Quarter and Fiscal 2017 Outlook

Mr. Friedman continued, "We expect first quarter fiscal 2017 net revenues to increase 16% to 20%, of which approximately 5 points of growth is due to the acquisition of Waterworks and 5 points is related to higher outlet and warehouse sales stemming from accelerated inventory optimization efforts during the quarter. Excluding these factors, we are expecting growth in the range of 6% to 10%, as we anniversary the launch of the RH Members Program, and benefit from the mailing of our Fall 2016 RH Interiors Source Book and the recent mailing of RH Outdoor. While our higher outlet revenues and inventory optimization efforts are having a positive impact on revenues in the first quarter, they will have a negative impact on margins and earnings as we expect adjusted net income in the range of $0.8 to $2.4 million."

"While we expect revenue growth to accelerate, operating margins to expand, and to generate significant free cash flow in fiscal 2017, we are taking a cautiously optimistic approach to our outlook given the uncertain macro environment in addition to the many initiatives and investments we are undertaking. As a result, we expect total net revenues to increase 8% to 12%, inclusive of 2-points of growth due to the 53rd week, and anticipate adjusted net income to increase 26% to 55% in fiscal 2017. We plan to generate meaningful free cash flow driven by increased earnings, reduced capital spending, and lower inventories," concluded Mr. Friedman.

RH's fiscal 2017 will include 53 weeks compared to the prior fiscal year which included 52 weeks. The Company is providing the following outlook for the first quarter and fiscal 2017:

Note: The Company's adjusted diluted earnings per share outlook excludes the potential benefit of any additional stock repurchases beyond those already completed through March 24, 2017. The Company's adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance does not include certain charges and costs. The adjustments to net income and diluted earnings per share in future periods are generally expected to be similar to the kinds of charges and costs excluded from adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share in prior periods, such as unusual non-cash and other compensation expense; one-time income tax expense or benefits; legal claim related expenses; reorganization costs including severance costs and related taxes; non-cash amortization of debt discount; and charges and costs in connection with the acquisition of Waterworks, among others. The exclusion of these charges and costs in future periods will have a significant impact on the Company's adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings. The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures without unreasonable effort because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of these future charges and costs.

**Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted net revenues, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings per share (collectively, "non-GAAP financial measures"). We compute these measures by adjusting the applicable GAAP measures to remove the impact of certain recurring and non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in this press release may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures, including similarly titled measures, used by other companies.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures tables in this press release. These accompanying tables include details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.

[a]   Represents the reduction of net revenues and costs associated with product recalls.
[b]   Represents the impairments associated with RH Contemporary Art and RH Kitchen. RH Contemporary Art has been integrated into the broader RH platform and no longer operates as a separate division. This resulted in cost of goods sold of $1.1 million which represents impairment of inventory and selling, general and administrative expenses of $10.6 million which represents lease related charges, property and equipment disposals, and donations. The impairment related to RH Kitchen is a result of the alignment with the Waterworks Kitchen product line strategy. This resulted in cost of goods sold of $1.1 million which represents impairment of inventory.
[c]   Represents the non-cash amortization of the inventory fair value adjustment recorded in connection with our acquisition of Waterworks.
[d]   Represents the estimated cumulative impact of coupons redeemed in connection with a legal claim alleging that the Company violated California's Song-Beverly Credit Card Act of 1971 by requesting and recording ZIP codes from customers paying with credit cards.
[e]   Represents the impairment recorded upon reclassification of aircraft as held for sale.
[f]   Represents costs associated with a reorganization, which include severance costs and related taxes, partially offset by a reversal of stock-based compensation expense related to unvested equity awards.
[g]   Represents a non-cash compensation charge related to one-time, fully vested option grants made in connection with our acquisition of Waterworks.
[h]   Represents costs incurred in connection with our acquisition of Waterworks including professional fees.
[i]   Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability and equity components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer's non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, in accounting for GAAP purposes for the $350 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June 2014 (the "2019 Notes") and for the $300 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes that were issued in June and July 2015 (the "2020 Notes"), we separated the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes into liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components and we are amortizing as debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the equity components as interest expense on the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes over their expected lives. The equity components represent the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes and the fair value of the liability components of the 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes, respectively. Amounts are presented net of interest capitalized for capital projects of $0.5 million and $0.8 million during the three months ended January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016, respectively. Amounts are presented net of interest capitalized for capital projects of $2.4 million and $2.3 million during the twelve months ended January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016, respectively.
[j]   The three and twelve months ended January 28, 2017 assumes a normalized tax rate of 39%. The adjustments for the three and twelve months ended January 30, 2016 represent the tax effect of the adjusted items based on our effective tax rates of 40.1% and 39.2%, respectively.
[k]  

Adjusted net income is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We define adjusted net income as net income, adjusted for the impact of certain non-recurring and other items that we do not consider representative of our underlying operating performance. Adjusted net income is included in this press release because management believes that adjusted net income provides meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitates a meaningful evaluation of actual results on a comparable basis with historical results. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.
