Overstock Announces First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Eighth consecutive quarter of profitability

Repurchased shares and ended quarter with strong cash position

SALT LAKE CITY, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights, from continuing operations

Total net revenue of $536 million, a decrease of 19% year over year
Gross profit of $125 million or 23.4% of total net revenue
Income from continuing operations of $10 million
Diluted earnings per share of $0.21
Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $21 million, which represents 4% of net revenue
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $493 million at the end of the first quarter
 

“We delivered our eighth consecutive quarter of profitability in line with our stated adjusted EBITDA margin targets, even in a difficult macro environment. While the 19% revenue decline was more than we expected, I am pleased that, based on third party data, we held our market share consistent with Q4 levels.” said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. “We anticipated the first quarter would be difficult considering the significant acceleration in sales last year driven by both operational improvements and pandemic-related factors. What we could not have anticipated was the magnitude of the impact of inflation coupled with an adverse geopolitical environment, which ultimately impacted consumer sentiment,” continued Johnson. “Looking ahead, we believe our unique business model positions us favorably to navigate through various macro scenarios and continue to take market share. Our business is asset-light and our smart value brand pillar delivers value that motivates our customers to buy from us even when their wallets are stretched. I look forward to providing a full update on our first quarter 2022 performance during our earnings call.”

First Quarter 2022 Operational Highlights*

Active customers of 7.4 million, a decrease of 26% year over year
Last Twelve Months (LTM) net revenue per active customer of $356, an increase of 26% year over year
Orders delivered of 2.4 million, a decrease of 33% year over year
Average order value of $221, an increase of 21% year over year
Orders per active customer, measured as LTM orders divided by active customers, of 1.67, an increase of approximately 1% year over year
Orders placed on a mobile device were 50% of gross merchandise sales
 

*Certain terms, such as active customers, LTM net revenue per active customer, orders delivered, average order value, and orders per active customer are defined under "Supplemental Operational Data" below.

Share Repurchases

On August 17, 2021, we announced that our Board of Directors had approved a stock repurchase program (the “Repurchase Program”), pursuant to which we may, from time to time, purchase shares of our outstanding common stock for an aggregate repurchase price not to exceed $100.0 million at any time through December 31, 2023. On March 9, 2022, we announced that our Board of Directors has expanded the Repurchase Program to permit us, from time to time, to purchase outstanding shares of our Digital Voting Series A-1 Preferred Stock and/or our Voting Series B Preferred Stock in addition to outstanding shares of our common stock.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we repurchased $24.9 million of our common stock and $256,000 of our Series A-1 preferred stock under the Repurchase Program at an average price of $48.18 and $45.24 per share, respectively. As of March 31, 2022, we had approximately $74.8 million remaining under the current Repurchase Program authorization.

Financial Reporting Presentation in Accordance with the Pelion Transaction

Medici Ventures' blockchain businesses, including tZERO, met the criteria to be reported as held for sale and discontinued operations as of March 31, 2021, due to their anticipated deconsolidation. As a result of closing the Pelion transaction during the second quarter of 2021, these businesses' operating results for the periods prior to deconsolidation have been reflected in our consolidated statements of income as discontinued operations. As a result of closing this transaction, Overstock has reorganized its remaining businesses into a single reportable operating segment, Retail. Corporate-related overhead costs are included in Retail continuing operations.

Supplemental Operational Data

We measure our business using operational metrics, in addition to the financial metrics shown above and the non-GAAP financial measures explained below. We believe these metrics provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, including indicators of our growth, customer purchasing patterns, and the mix of products purchased by our customers.

Active customers represents the total number of unique customers who have made at least one purchase during the prior twelve-month period. This metric captures both the inflow of new customers and the outflow of existing customers who have not made a purchase during the prior twelve-month period.

LTM net revenue per active customer represents total net revenue in a twelve-month period divided by the total number of active customers for the same twelve-month period.

Orders delivered represents the total number of orders delivered in any given period, including orders that may eventually be returned. As we ship a large volume of packages through multiple carriers, actual delivery dates may not always be available, and in those circumstances we estimate delivery dates based on historical data.

Average order value is defined as total net revenue in any given period divided by the total number of orders delivered in that period.

Orders per active customer is defined as orders delivered in a twelve-month period divided by active customers for the same twelve-month period.

The following table provides key operating metrics for the Retail business:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations

We are providing certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release and related earnings conference call, including adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow. We use these non-GAAP measures internally in analyzing our financial results and we believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance in the same manner as our management and board of directors. We have provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in this earnings release. These non-GAAP financial measures should be used in addition to and in conjunction with the results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share for continuing operations is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net income from continuing operations less the income recognized from our equity method securities, net of related tax. We believe that this adjustment to our net income before calculating per share amounts for the current period presented provides a useful comparison between our operating results from period to period.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as income from continuing operations before depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest and other income (expense), provision (benefit) for income taxes, and special items. We believe the exclusion of certain benefits and expenses in calculating adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis. Exclusion of items in the non-GAAP presentation should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as net cash provided by or used in continuing operating activities reduced by expenditures for property and equipment. We believe free cash flow is a useful measure to evaluate the cash impact of the continuing operations of the business including purchases of property and equipment which are a necessary component of our ongoing operations.
