eBay Inc. Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

  • Gross Merchandise Volume of $20.9 billion
  • Revenue of $2.2 billion
  • GAAP and Non-GAAP EPS per diluted share of $0.94 and $0.49, respectively, on a continuing operations basis
  • Repurchased $350 million of common stock

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY), a global commerce leader, delivered gross merchandise volume (GMV) for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 of $20.9 billion, increasing 2% on an as-reported basis and 5% on a foreign exchange (FX) neutral basis. Revenue for the quarter was $2.2 billion, up 4% on an as-reported basis and 7% on an FX-Neutral basis.

During the quarter, eBay delivered GAAP net income from continuing operations of $1.0 billion, or $0.94 per diluted share, driven by a non-cash $695 million income tax benefit related to the continued realignment of its legal structure, primarily impacting its foreign Classifieds platforms. Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations was $538 million, or $0.49 per diluted share. During the quarter, the company generated $582 million of operating cash flow and $447 million of free cash flow from continuing operations. The company also repurchased $350 million of its common stock in the quarter.

"The first quarter was a strong start to the year with accelerating growth in active buyers, revenue and our core U.S. business," said Devin Wenig, President and CEO of eBay Inc. "We are on the right path as we continue to evolve our shopping platform for consumers, leverage our technology advantages and market a sharpened eBay brand globally."

Underlying total eBay Inc. performance, the Marketplace platforms delivered $20.0 billion of GMV and $1.8 billion of revenue. Marketplace GMV was up 2% on an as-reported basis and 5% on an FX-Neutral basis, driven by growth of active buyers, continued expansion of new user experiences and brand advertising, which led to revenue growth of 2% on an as-reported basis and 5% on an FX-Neutral basis. StubHub drove GMV of $916 million, up 6%, and revenue of $210 million, up 18% on an as-reported basis and 19% on an FX-Neutral basis, aided by strength in international markets with the integration of the Ticketbis acquisition. Classifieds had another quarter of strong growth delivering revenue of $199 million, up 7% on an as-reported basis and 10% on an FX-Neutral basis with strength across its German platforms.

In the first quarter, eBay added two million active buyers across its platforms, for a total of 169 million global active buyers.  Marketplace launched several new consumer experiences built on the foundation of its structured data efforts, coupled with continued investment in brand advertising, including the launch of a billboard and radio campaign across the United States. The company also began the roll out of a new, personalized homepage and announced new services that will be available later this year, including a Guaranteed Delivery program on millions of eligible items that arrive in three days or less, and an authentication program to boost consumer confidence when purchasing high-end merchandise. During Q1, StubHub became the official ticket resale marketplace for the Los Angeles Angels and Toronto Blue Jays, offering pricing guidance for sellers and panoramic 360-degree virtual view-from-seats for buyers. Classifieds continued to enhance user experiences across its platforms, including launching a personalized homepage feed on Marktplaats.nl, as well as expanding its inventory integration with the eBay Marketplace platform across multiple regions.

eBay recently announced a strategic agreement with Flipkart. In exchange for an equity stake, eBay will make a $500 million cash investment in and sell its eBay.in business to Flipkart. The companies will also exclusively pursue cross-border trade opportunities together.

eBay Inc.
Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

To supplement the company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, and free cash flow. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a continuing operations basis.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables included in this press release.

These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the company's current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, or net purchases of property and equipment, as the case may be, that may not be indicative of its core operating results and business outlook. In addition, because the company has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company's financial reporting.

For its internal budgeting process, and as discussed further below, the company's management uses financial measures that do not include stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock-based compensation, amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses from the disposal/acquisition of a business, certain effects of the planned separation of our eBay and PayPal business, certain gains and losses on investments, restructuring-related charges and the income taxes associated with the foregoing. In addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, the company's management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures in reviewing the financial results of the company.

The company excludes the following items from non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP effective tax rate:

Stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases. The company excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that management does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. The related employer payroll taxes are dependent on the company's stock price and the timing and size of exercises by employees of their stock options and the vesting of their restricted stock, over which management has limited to no control, and as such management does not believe it correlates to the company's operation of the business.

Amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses and transaction expenses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and certain gains or losses on investments. The company incurs amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets and goodwill in connection with acquisitions and may incur significant gains or losses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and therefore excludes these amounts from its non-GAAP measures. The company also excludes certain gains and losses on investments. The company excludes the non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure and related foreign exchange effects. The company excludes these items because management does not believe they correlate to the ongoing operating results of the company's business.

Restructuring. These charges consist of expenses for employee severance and other exit and disposal costs. The company excludes significant restructuring charges primarily because management does not believe they are reflective of ongoing operating results.

Other certain significant gains, losses, or charges that are not indicative of the company's core operating results. These are significant gains, losses, or charges during a period that are the result of isolated events or transactions which have not occurred frequently in the past and are not expected to occur regularly or be repeated in the future. The company excludes these amounts from its results primarily because management does not believe they are indicative of its current or ongoing operating results.

Separation. These are significant expenses that are related to the separation of our eBay and PayPal businesses into separate publicly traded companies. These consist primarily of third-party consulting fees, legal fees, employee retention payments, tax indemnifications and other expenses related to the separation.

Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. This amount is used to present stock-based compensation and the other amounts described above on an after-tax basis consistent with the presentation of non-GAAP net income.

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, the company also uses free cash flow. Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less purchases of property and equipment. The company considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property, buildings, and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in the company's business, make strategic acquisitions, and repurchase stock. A limitation of the utility of free cash flow as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the company's cash balance for the period.
