"We completed a strong year with record revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS," said John Robinson, Chief Executive Officer. "Our financial performance for 2015 was in line with our original guidance for the year with consolidated revenues increasing 18%, Adjusted EBITDA growth of 23% and non-GAAP earnings per share up 27%. We believe our organization is well positioned to post strong revenue and earnings growth in 2016, and we're encouraged by trends we experienced in the fourth quarter."

"Progressive's revenue grew 32% in the fourth quarter, driven in part by an 8% increase in active doors as we execute on converting an exciting pipeline. Gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded in the quarter and the year. Merchandise write-offs declined significantly and bad debt expense returned to a normalized rate in the quarter, as we had projected."

"E-commerce continues to exceed our expectations and fourth quarter sequential customer growth in the core business was at its strongest pace since 2012," continued Mr. Robinson. "We'll seek to build on these gains in 2016 as we focus on driving profitable growth, onboarding new retailers at Progressive and improving our omni-channel platform."

Financial Summary

For the fourth quarter of 2015, revenues increased 10% to $821.2 million compared with $748.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. Net earnings were $21.7 million versus $22.1 million in the prior year period. Diluted earnings per share were $.30 in both periods.

On a non-GAAP basis, net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $29.8 million compared with $28.7 million for the same period in 2014, and earnings per share assuming dilution were $.41 compared to $.39 in 2014. In 2015, non-GAAP net earnings and diluted earnings per share exclude the effects of amortization expense resulting from the 2014 acquisition of Progressive, the transaction costs related to the October 2015Dent-A-Med, Inc. (DAMI) acquisition and a loss due to a lease termination on a Company aircraft. In 2014, in addition to Progressive amortization, non-GAAP results exclude the effects of a Progressive deferred revenue adjustment. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" and the related non-GAAP reconciliation accompanying this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Company, which excludes the aforementioned special charges and adjustments, was $67.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as the Company's earnings before interest, depreciation on property, plant and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, income taxes and special charges and adjustments.

During the twelve months of 2015, revenues increased 18.0% to $3.180 billion compared with $2.695 billion for the twelve months of 2014. Net earnings were $135.7 million versus $78.2 million last year. Diluted earnings per share were $1.86 compared with $1.08 per share a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Company increased to $323.8 million for the twelve months of 2015. On a non-GAAP basis, net earnings for the twelve months of 2015 were $157.0 million compared with $123.2 million for the same period in 2014, and earnings per share assuming dilution were $2.15 compared with $1.69 a year ago, a 27% increase over the prior year.

Aaron's, Inc., which includes Progressive and DAMI, had 1,629,000 customers at the end of December 2015 versus 1,513,000 at the end of last year, a 7.7% increase. The Company generated $166.8 million in cash from operations during the twelve months of 2015 and capital expenditures totaled $60.6 million. Cash on hand at the end of 2015 was $14.9 million compared with $3.5 million at the end of 2014. Debt was $610.5 million at December 31, 2015 and $606.1 million at December 31, 2014. The Company's net debt to total capitalization ratio at the end of 2015 was 30% compared to 33% at the end of 2014.

Core Results

Revenues of the Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership division increased .6% in the fourth quarter of 2015 to $525.5 million compared with $522.6 million in revenues in the fourth quarter of 2014. Sales and lease ownership revenues for the twelve months of 2015 decreased 2.2% to $2.061 billion compared with $2.107 billion for the same period a year ago.

HomeSmart division revenues were $15.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, a 1.9% increase from $15.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. HomeSmart revenues for the twelve months of 2015 were $63.2 million versus $64.4 million for the same period a year ago, a 1.9% decrease.

Adjusted EBITDA for the core business for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 was $42.9 million and $215.8 million, respectively. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted EBITDA was 7.9% for the three months and 10.1% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 compared to 8.3% and 9.8% for the same periods a year ago. Margin improvement during 2015 was driven by the Company's price increases, inventory reduction, and cost initiatives. Write offs for damaged, lost or unsaleable merchandise were 4.7% of revenues in the quarter compared to 4.2% in the same period last year.

Same store revenues (revenues earned in Company-operated stores open for the entirety of both quarters) decreased 3.4% during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared with the fourth quarter of 2014, and customer counts on a same store basis were down 1.2%. Company-operated Aaron's stores had 1,075,000 customers and franchised stores had 581,000 customers at the end of the fourth quarter of 2015, a .4% decline in total customers from the end of the fourth quarter a year ago (customers of franchisees are not customers of Aaron's, Inc.).

Progressive Results

Progressive's revenues in the fourth quarter of 2015 increased 31.6% to $276.1 million. Revenues for the twelve months of 2015 were $1.050 billion. Invoice volume per active door grew 4.5% in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the fourth quarter of last year. Progressive had 513,000 customers at December 31, 2015, an 18% increase from the fourth quarter a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter and twelve months of 2015 was $25.5 million and $109.0 million, respectively. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted EBITDA was 9.2% for the fourth quarter compared with 8.5% for the fourth quarter of 2014. Progressive's Adjusted EBITDA was 10.4% for the twelve months of 2015. Write offs for damaged, lost or unsaleable merchandise were 7.1% of revenues in the fourth quarter compared to 8.8% in the same period of 2014.

Progressive's results of operations were included in the Company's consolidated financial statements beginning on its acquisition date of April 14, 2014.

DAMI was acquired by Progressive on October 15, 2015. DAMI's financial results in the fourth quarter were not significant and include normal and customary acquisition accounting adjustments.

Components of Revenue

Consolidated lease revenues and fees for the fourth quarter and twelve months of 2015 increased 8.4% and 20.8%, respectively, over the comparable prior year periods. Franchise royalties and fees decreased 2.0% in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 3.6% for the twelve months of 2015 compared with the same periods in 2014. The decrease in the Company's franchise royalties and fees are primarily the result of a decrease in revenues of the Company's franchisees. Franchisees had revenues of $238.7 million during the fourth quarter of 2015 and $972.5 million for the twelve months of 2015, decreases of 1.0% and 2.3%, respectively, from the comparable 2014 periods. Same store revenues and customer counts for franchised stores were up 2.4% and 1.8%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared with the same quarter last year (revenues and customers of franchisees are not revenues and customers of Aaron's, Inc.). Non-retail sales, which are primarily sales of merchandise to Aaron's Sales and Lease Ownership franchisees, increased 17.0% for the fourth quarter of 2015 and 7.4% for the twelve months of 2015 compared with the same periods last year.

Store Count

During the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company opened one Company-operated Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership store and one franchised store. The Company acquired five franchised stores. One Company-operated and 22 franchised Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership stores were consolidated or closed during the quarter. Four franchised Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership stores were sold to a third party.

At December 31, 2015, the Company had 1,223 Company-operated Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership stores, 732 franchised Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership stores, 82 Company-operated HomeSmart stores, and two franchised HomeSmart stores. The total number of stores open at December 31, 2015 was 2,039.

2016 Outlook

The Company is providing the following guidance for the 2016 year.

Diluted earnings per share is presented both on a GAAP basis and on a non-GAAP basis excluding Progressive-related intangible amortization and any future one-time or unusual items.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

This press release presents the Company's net earnings and diluted earnings per share in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and in a format that is not in accordance with GAAP due to the exclusion of $6.6 million in Progressive-related intangible amortization expense in the fourth quarter of 2015, $2.7 million and $3.7 million of DAMI related transaction costs in the fourth quarter and the twelve months of 2015, respectively, $3.5 million related to the lease termination of a Company aircraft in the fourth quarter and the twelve months of 2015, and $26.4 million in Progressive-related intangible amortization expense for the twelve months of 2015, as well as the exclusion of certain 2014 charges as presented and described in previous releases and as shown in this press release for comparative purposes.

Management regards the amortization expense relating to the Company's acquisition of Progressive, the DAMI transactions costs and the aircraft lease termination as special charges not arising out of the ordinary course of business. Management believes that presentation of net earnings and diluted earnings per share excluding these adjustments is useful because it gives investors supplemental information to evaluate and compare the Company's underlying operating performance from period to period.

Non-GAAP financial measures, however, should not be used as a substitute for, or considered superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as the Company's GAAP basis net earnings and diluted earnings per share and the GAAP operating income of the Company's segments, which are also presented in the press release. Please refer to our Current Report on Form 8-K furnishing this earnings release to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on the date hereof for further information on our use of non-GAAP financial measures.
