Overstock Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Midvale, Utah, UNITED STATES

Navigated ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical volatility to deliver another profitable quarter

Continued share repurchases and ended the quarter with a strong cash position

SALT LAKE CITY, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights, from continuing operations

Total net revenue of $528 million, a decrease of 34% year over year
Gross profit of $121 million or 22.9% of total net revenue
Income from continuing operations of $7 million
Diluted earnings per share of $0.12
Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $21 million, which represents 3.9% of net revenue
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $443 million at the end of the second quarter

"Our disciplined execution and differentiated asset-light operating model allowed us to remain profitable for the ninth consecutive quarter, even with weak consumer sentiment, ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical volatility, higher inflation, and significant competitive pressures including competitors liquidating their excess owned inventory," said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. "While the retail environment was challenging throughout the second quarter and sales results were below my expectations, we continued to deliver smart value to our customers, make progress on our strategic initiatives, and provide our partners with an efficient and effective channel to increase their unit sales. Our continued profitability and strong balance sheet support that our business model is a winning one, able to withstand jolts in the market."

"Over a year ago, we strategically embarked on the path to become a 100% e-commerce furniture and home furnishings retailer. We accomplished this goal at the end of the second quarter, on our targeted timeframe. Overstock remains well positioned to serve the evolving home furnishings needs of our customers and capture market share in a large and growing addressable market. In these unprecedented times, we have chosen to stay the course, focusing on our strategic initiatives and operating our business under the same financial discipline as we have over the last two years," continued Johnson. "I look forward to providing a full update on our second quarter 2022 performance during our earnings call."

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 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 June 30, 2022, we repurchased $34.9 million of our common stock and $50,000 of our Series A-1 preferred stock under the Repurchase Program at an average price of $30.69 and $31.30 per share, respectively. As of June 30, 2022, we had approximately $39.9 million remaining under the current Repurchase Program authorization.

Preferred Share Conversion

On May 12, 2022, our shareholders voted to approve the amendment of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Designation for both classes of our preferred stock to provide that each share of our Series A-1 and Series B preferred stock would be automatically converted into 0.90 of a share of our common stock (the "Conversion"). On June 10, 2022, in connection with the completion of the Conversion, we issued 4,097,697 shares of our common stock in exchange for the outstanding Series A-1 and Series B preferred stock on that date. As the fair value of our common stock issued exceeded the fair value of the Series A-1 and Series B preferred stock exchanged on Conversion date, we recognized a non-cash dividend of $1.7 million due to the excess fair value per share compared to the conversion ratio. Following the Conversion, we eliminated the Series A-1 and Series B preferred stock class by filing Certificates of Elimination with the Delaware Secretary of State.

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 growth. 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.

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 and the non-cash preferred stock conversion dividend. 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.
