Groupon, Inc. (GRPN ) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.



"In the first quarter, we continued to make solid progress in our mission to be the daily habit in local commerce," said CEO Rich Williams. "Our focus on growing customers in our marketplace, significantly improving the customer experience and continuing to streamline and simplify our business helped drive a 42 percent year-over-year increase in Adjusted EBITDA and gross profit of $309 million for the quarter."

As of March 31, 2017, Groupon has completed the dispositions of our operations in 11 countries. Accordingly, the results of our operations in those 11 countries are presented as discontinued operations, appearing net of tax in a single line in the company’s consolidated statements of operations. Prior period results have been updated to reflect that discontinued operations presentation.

First Quarter 2017 Summary

North America

-- North America gross profit in the first quarter 2017 increased 2% to $220.9 million from $215.9 million in the first quarter 2016. In Local, gross billings increased 9% and revenue increased 4%, resulting in 3% growth in gross profit as increased transaction volume was partially offset by higher promotional activity. In Goods, gross billings and revenue declined 11% and 12%, respectively, while gross profit increased 1%. Gross billings reflect the total dollar value of customer purchases of goods and services.

-- We are increasingly focusing the business on initiatives that are intended to maximize gross profit. These changes, including an increasing shift toward offerings in our higher margin Local category from our Goods category, had an unfavorable impact on North America revenue in the first quarter 2017 despite increased overall billings. North America revenue decreased 5% driven by a 12% decline in Goods direct revenue transactions, which are presented on a gross basis.

-- North America active customers reached 31.6 million as of March 31, 2017, adding 500 thousand during the first quarter 2017. Active customers represent unique user accounts that have made a purchase through one of our online marketplaces during the trailing twelve months.

International

-- International gross profit declined 15% (12% FX-neutral) in the first quarter 2017 to $88.5 million as we experienced some execution challenges and short-term disruption from our country exits. Gross profit declined across all categories on an FX-neutral basis, including a 4% decline in Local, 9% decline in Travel, and 31% decline in Goods. We made progress across several supply, marketing, and product initiatives toward the end of Q1 and into Q2, and believe our current initiatives will enable us to stabilize gross profit internationally in the coming quarters.

-- International active customers were roughly flat sequentially at 16.7 million as of March 31, 2017.

Consolidated

-- Gross billings were $1.36 billion in the first quarter 2017, down 1% (flat FX-neutral) from $1.37 billion in the first quarter 2016.

-- Revenue was $673.6 million in the first quarter 2017, down 4% (3% FX-neutral) from $698.4 million in the first quarter 2016.

-- Gross profit was $309.5 million in the first quarter 2017, down 3% (2% FX-neutral) from $320.1 million in the first quarter 2016.

-- SG&A declined 12% year-over-year in the first quarter 2017 as we continue to drive operational efficiency through automation and our more streamlined organization, which we expect not only to improve our customer experience but also create greater operating leverage over time. We ended the first quarter 2017 with headcount of 7,120 and took actions in April 2017 to further rationalize our cost structure, reducing headcount by approximately 4%.

-- Marketing was $86.3 million, down 1% year-over-year. We launched our offline campaign "Save Up to $100 a Week on What You Do Every Day" toward the end of February 2017.

-- Net loss from continuing operations was $20.9 million in the first quarter 2017, compared with $43.5 million in the first quarter 2016. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $24.4 million, or $0.04 per share. Non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders was $5.2 million, or $0.01 per share.

-- Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $44.8 million in the first quarter 2017, compared with $31.5 million in the first quarter 2016.

-- Global units sold declined 3% year-over-year to 45.7 million. Units in North America were flat driven by high single digit growth in Local and declines in Goods, while International declined 9%. Units are defined as purchases made through our online marketplaces, before refunds and cancellations.

-- Operating cash flow was $67.5 million for the trailing twelve month period as of the first quarter 2017. Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $5.0 million for the trailing twelve month period as of the first quarter 2017.

-- Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2017 were $691.0 million, and we had no outstanding borrowings under our $250.0 million revolving credit facility.

Definitions and reconciliations of all non-GAAP financial measures are included below in the section titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and in the accompanying tables.

Share Repurchase

During the first quarter 2017, Groupon repurchased 7,336,681 shares of its common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $26.0 million. Groupon repurchased 31,744,424 shares for an aggregate purchase price of $125.0 million for the trailing twelve month period as of the first quarter 2017. Up to $169.0 million of common stock was available for repurchase under Groupon’s share repurchase program as of March 31, 2017. The timing and amount of any share repurchases are determined based on market conditions, limitations under our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, share price and other factors, and the program may be discontinued or suspended at any time.

Outlook

Groupon is reiterating its outlook for 2017, which reflects current foreign exchange rates, as well as expected marketing investments and cost benefits associated with our streamlining initiatives. The basis for our full year 2017 guidance is continuing operations.

-- For the full year 2017, Groupon expects gross profit to be in the range of $1.30 billion to $1.35 billion.

-- Groupon expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $200 million to $240 million in 2017.

Conference Call

A conference call will be webcast live today at 9:00 a.m. CDT / 10:00 a.m. EDT and will be available on Groupon’s investor relations website at http://investor.groupon.com . This call will contain forward-looking statements and other material information regarding the Company’s financial and operating results.

Groupon encourages investors to use its investor relations website as a way of easily finding information about the company. Groupon promptly makes available on this website, free of charge, the reports that the company files or furnishes with the SEC, corporate governance information (including Groupon’s Global Code of Conduct), and select press releases and social media postings. Groupon uses its investor relations site (investor.groupon.com) and its blog (https://www.groupon.com/blog) as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we have provided the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow and foreign currency exchange rate neutral operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures, which are presented on a continuing operations basis, are intended to aid investors in better understanding our current financial performance and prospects for the future as seen through the eyes of management. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons with our historical results and with the results of peer companies who present similar measures (although other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently than we define them, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures). However, these non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be a substitute for those reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For reconciliations of these measures to the most applicable financial measures under U.S. GAAP, see "Non-GAAP Reconciliation Schedules" and "Supplemental Financial Information and Business Metrics" included in the tables accompanying this release.

We exclude the following items from one or more of our non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation. We exclude stock-based compensation because it is primarily non-cash in nature and we believe that non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance and liquidity.

Acquisition-related expense (benefit), net. Acquisition-related expense (benefit), net is comprised of the change in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements and external transaction costs related to business combinations, primarily consisting of legal and advisory fees. The composition of our contingent consideration arrangements and the impact of those arrangements on our operating results vary over time based on a number of factors, including the terms of our business combinations and the timing of those transactions. We exclude acquisition-related expense (benefit), net because we believe that non-GAAP financial measures excluding this item provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance and facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results.

Depreciation and amortization. We exclude depreciation and amortization expenses because they are non-cash in nature and we believe that non-GAAP financial measures excluding these items provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance and liquidity.

Interest and Other Non-Operating Items. Interest and other non-operating items include: gains and losses related to minority investments, foreign currency gains and losses, interest income and interest expense, including non-cash interest expense from our convertible senior notes. We exclude interest and other non-operating items from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding these items provides meaningful supplemental information about our core operating performance and facilitates comparisons to our historical operating results.

Special Charges and Credits. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, special charges and credits included charges related to our restructuring plan. We exclude special charges and credits from Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that excluding those items provides meaningful supplemental information about our core operating performance and facilitates comparisons with our historical results.

Income Tax Effect of Items Excluded from Non-GAAP Financial Measures. We determine the income tax effect of items excluded from our measures of non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share by performing a tax provision calculation using pre-tax income (loss) amounts that have been adjusted to exclude those items in the respective jurisdictions to which they relate. The difference between the income tax expense (benefit) determined on that basis and our reported income tax expense (benefit) represents the income tax effect of the excluded items.

Descriptions of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and the accompanying tables are as follows:

Foreign exchange rate neutral operating results show our current period operating results as if foreign currency exchange rates had remained the same as those in effect in the prior-year period. We present foreign exchange rate neutral information to facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding income taxes, interest and other non-operating items, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related expense (benefit), net, and other special charges and credits. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by our management and Board of Directors to evaluate operating performance, generate future operating plans, and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating performance in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share are non-GAAP performance measures that adjust our net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and earnings (loss) per share to exclude the impact of:

-- stock-based compensation,

-- amortization of acquired intangible assets,

-- acquisition-related expense (benefit), net,

-- special charges and credits, including restructuring charges,

-- non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes,

-- non-operating foreign currency gains and losses related to intercompany balances and reclassifications of cumulative translation adjustments to earnings as a result of business dispositions or country exits,

-- non-operating gains and losses from minority investments that we have elected to record at fair value with changes in fair value reported in earnings,

-- income (loss) from discontinued operations, and

-- the income tax effect of those items.

We believe that excluding the above items from our measures of non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share provides useful supplemental information for evaluating our operating performance and facilitates comparisons to our historical results by eliminating items that are non-cash in nature, relate to discrete events, or are otherwise not indicative of the core operating performance of our ongoing business.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that comprises net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations less purchases of property and equipment and capitalized software from continuing operations. We use free cash flow to conduct and evaluate our business because, although it is similar to cash flow from operations, we believe that it typically represents a more useful measure of cash flows because purchases of fixed assets, software developed for internal-use, and website development costs are necessary components of our ongoing operations. Free cash flow is not intended to represent the total increase or decrease in Groupon’s cash balance for the applicable period.
