Overstock Announces Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Labor Day event largest single sales day of 2022

Ended the quarter with a strong balance sheet with over $400 million in cash

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK) today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights, from continuing operations

  • Total net revenue of $460 million, a decrease of 33% year over year
  • Gross profit of $107 million, or 23.3% of total net revenue
  • Loss from continuing operations of $37 million
  • Operating income of $6 million
  • Diluted net loss per share of $0.81; Adjusted diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP) of $0.13
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $15 million, which represents 3.2% of net revenue
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $428 million at the end of the third quarter

"Despite a challenging retail environment, our business continues to be profitable for the tenth consecutive quarter, and we ended the quarter with a strong balance sheet and cash position," said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. "Our sales trends improved in late-Q3, including a successful Labor Day event that culminated into our biggest sales day of the year thus far. We improved gross margin by leveraging our differentiated asset-light business model, supported our vendor partners to move through ample inventory, and continued to provide smart value to our customers in a highly promotional time. We accomplished this while navigating shifting consumer spending preferences, high inflation and macro headwinds that put pressure on our industry."

"We launched our new national brand campaign in early October centered around our vision of 'Making Dream Homes Come True'," continued Johnson. "This campaign supports our efforts to increase the association of Overstock's high brand-name awareness with 'home' and positions us well to grow market share into the future. We are managing through near-term challenges while focusing on efforts that I expect will help drive long-term growth. I am pleased with the team’s ability to balance both. I look forward to providing a full update on our third quarter 2022 performance during our earnings call."

  • Active customers of 5.8 million, a decrease of 33% year over year
  • Last Twelve Months (LTM) net revenue per active customer of $369, an increase of 14% year over year

Financial Reporting Presentation in Accordance with the Pelion Transaction

Upon closing the Pelion transaction during the second quarter of 2021, we deconsolidated the Medici Ventures' blockchain businesses, including tZERO. The operating results for these businesses for the periods prior to deconsolidation have been reflected in our consolidated statements of income as discontinued operations. Overstock reorganized its remaining businesses, including corporate-related overhead costs, into a single reportable operating segment.

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 and provide key performance indicators to track our progress. These indicators include changes in customer order patterns and the mix of products purchased by our customers.

Active customers represent 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 our key operating metrics:

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 is calculated as net income (loss) from continuing operations less the income or losses recognized from our equity method securities, net of related tax. We believe that this adjustment to our net income (loss) 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 (loss) 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.
