Third Quarter Results
Consolidated revenues were $148.6 million for the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of 7.9% compared to $161.3 million for the third quarter of 2017, due to decreases in revenues in the U.S. Consumer, Florist, and International segments. Foreign currency exchange rates had a $0.1 million unfavorable impact on consolidated revenues during the third quarter of 2018.

Net loss was $31.2 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $99.3 million for the third quarter of 2017. Net loss includes pre-tax non-cash impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets of $0.4 million and $105.7 million, for the third quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Company also incurred third quarter 2018 restructuring costs of $18.1 million related to the corporate restructuring and cost savings plan announced in July 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $1.0 million, or a loss of 0.6% of consolidated revenues, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $1.9 million, or 1.2% of consolidated revenues, for the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to the tables in this press release for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial measures.

Nine-Month Results
Consolidated revenues were $766.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, a decrease of 4.9% compared to $805.9 million for the first nine months of 2017, due to decreases in revenues in the U.S. Consumer and Florist segments, partially offset by an increase in revenues in the International segment. Foreign currency exchange rates had a $7.8 million favorable impact on consolidated revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Net loss was $155.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to a net loss of $80.6 million for the first nine months of 2017. Net loss includes pre-tax non-cash impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets of $139.6 million and $105.7 million, for the 2018 and 2017 periods, respectively, as well as the aforementioned restructuring and exit costs in the 2018 period.

Adjusted EBITDA was $20.9 million, or 2.7% of consolidated revenues, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $64.2 million, or 8.0% of consolidated revenues, for the first nine months of 2017.

Segment Results

U.S. Consumer Segment: U.S. Consumer segment revenues for the third quarter of 2018 decreased 7.2% to $91.2 million, compared to $98.3 million for the third quarter of 2017. This decline was primarily due to a 3.4% decrease in consumer orders and a $2.08, or 3.6% decrease, in average order value to $55.43, compared to the third quarter of 2017. Revenues decreased 16.5% and 7.4% for the FTD.com and ProFlowers businesses, respectively, for the third quarter of 2018 compared to the prior-year quarter. Partially offsetting these decreases were increases of 18.0% and 0.3% for the Personal Creations and Gourmet Foods businesses, respectively, for the third quarter of 2018 compared to the prior-year quarter. The U.S. Consumer segment operating loss was $8.2 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to an operating loss of $3.1 million for the prior-year quarter.

U.S. Consumer segment revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 decreased 6.7% to $547.6 million, compared to $586.7 million for the prior-year nine months. This decline was primarily due to a 4.6% decrease in consumer orders and a $1.21, or 2.2% decrease, in average order value to $55.01, compared to the first nine months of 2017. Revenues decreased 11.5%, 10.0%, and 4.1% in the FTD.com, ProFlowers, and Gourmet Foods businesses, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the first nine months of 2017. Partially offsetting these decreases was an increase in revenues for Personal Creations of 21.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The U.S. Consumer segment operating loss was $10.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to operating income of $37.1 million for the first nine months of 2017. The decline in segment profitability was primarily due to lower revenue, increased marketing and shipping costs, and increased inventory write-offs from lower than anticipated Valentine’s Day orders during the first quarter of 2018.

Florist Segment: Florist segment revenues for the third quarter of 2018 decreased 10.0% to $31.2 million, compared to $34.7 million for the third quarter of 2017. This decrease was primarily due to lower services revenues, as a result of a reduction in clearinghouse order volume and a decline in online services, as well as lower products revenues. The decrease in products revenues was primarily related to a planned reduction in container offerings and related pricing, partially offset by an increase in fresh flower sales. Average revenues per member decreased 2.5% to $3,180 for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $3,263 for the prior-year quarter. Florist segment operating income was $8.8 million, or 28.3% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $9.6 million, or 27.6% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2017.

Florist segment revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 decreased 7.9% to $115.3 million, compared to $125.3 million for the first nine months of 2017. This decrease was primarily due to lower services revenues, as a result of a reduction in clearinghouse order volume and a decline in online services, as well as lower products revenues. The decrease in products revenues was primarily related to a planned reduction in container offerings and related pricing, partially offset by an increase in fresh flower sales. Average revenues per member decreased 1.2% to $11,257 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $11,397 for the first nine months of 2017. Florist segment operating income was $32.0 million, or 27.7% of segment revenues, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $35.8 million, or 28.5% of segment revenues, for the first nine months of 2017.

International Segment: International segment revenues for the third quarter of 2018 decreased 8.1% to $28.9 million, compared to $31.5 million for the third quarter of 2017. On a constant currency basis, International segment revenues decreased 7.7%. Consumer orders in the International segment increased 1.1%, offset by a 5.4% decrease in average order value as reported and 4.9% on a constant currency basis. International segment operating income was $2.0 million, or 6.8% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $3.4 million, or 10.8% of segment revenues, for the prior-year quarter. On a constant currency basis, International segment operating income decreased $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to the prior-year quarter.

International segment revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 increased 8.0% to $115.0 million, compared to $106.4 million for the first nine months of 2017.

International segment operating income was $11.7 million, or 10.2% of segment revenues, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $12.0 million, or 11.3% of segment revenues, for the first nine months of 2017. On a constant currency basis, International segment operating income decreased $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the first nine months of 2017.

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow, and Financing Initiatives
Net cash used for operating activities was $56.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $18.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Free Cash Flow for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was negative $78.6 million, compared to negative Free Cash Flow of $19.5 million in the first nine months of 2017.

2018 Business Outlook
FTD is reiterating its outlook for the full year ending December 31, 2018. The annual outlook reflects the Company’s year-to-date results, as well as the Company’s expectations for the rest of the year, including savings from the corporate restructuring and cost savings plan. The Company expects the following for full-year 2018:

  • Consolidated revenues of $1.02 billion to $1.03 billion;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $37 million to $41 million; and
  • Capital expenditures of $35 million to $38 million.

Initial Full-Year 2019 Business Outlook
FTD is providing an initial outlook for the full year ending December 31, 2019. The annual outlook reflects the Company’s current expectations for $32 million to $37 million in savings from its corporate restructuring and cost savings plan. The Company expects the following for full-year 2019:

  • Consolidated revenues of $1.03 billion to $1.06 billion;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $58 million to $68 million; and
  • Capital expenditures of $35 million to $40 million.

In connection with the full-year 2018 and 2019 outlooks provided above, please note that the seasonality of the Company’s business impacts the quarterly pattern of its profitability and cash flows from operations.

The Company is not providing 2018 or 2019 guidance for net income/(loss), the GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA, and similarly cannot provide a reconciliation between its forecasted Adjusted EBITDA and net income/(loss) metrics without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of reliable estimates for certain items including transaction-related costs, impairments of goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets, and discrete tax items. These items may vary significantly between periods and could materially impact future financial results.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of certain components of financial performance. The Company’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA, as set forth below, may be modified from time to time.

Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows for a period-to-period comparison of the Company’s operating performance by removing the impact of the Company’s capital structure (interest expense on outstanding debt), asset base (depreciation, amortization, and impairment charges), tax consequences, stock-based compensation, and certain other items that are not considered reflective of the Company’s core operations. The Company further emphasizes the importance of Adjusted EBITDA as an operating performance measure by utilizing the Adjusted EBITDA measure as a basis for determining certain incentive compensation targets for certain members of the Company’s management. The Adjusted EBITDA measure also is used as a performance measure under the Company’s senior secured credit facility and includes adjustments such as the items defined above and other further adjustments, which are defined in the senior secured credit facility.

Management believes that presenting this non-GAAP financial measure provides additional information to facilitate comparison of the Company’s historical operating results and trends in its underlying operating results and provides additional transparency on how the Company evaluates its businesses.

In addition to the use of this non-GAAP measure by management for the purposes outlined above, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is a measure widely used by securities analysts, investors, and others to evaluate the financial performance of the Company and its competitors.

Adjusted EBITDA is not determined in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. A limitation associated with the use of Adjusted EBITDA is that it does not reflect depreciation and amortization expense for various long-lived assets, impairment charges, interest expense, income taxes, and other items that have been and will be incurred. Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company’s results. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect capital expenditures and other investing activities. An additional limitation associated with Adjusted EBITDA is that the measure does not include stock-based compensation expenses related to the Company’s workforce. A further limitation associated with the use of this non-GAAP financial measure is that it does not reflect expenses or gains that are not considered reflective of the Company’s core operations. Management compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, interest and income tax expenses, capital expenditures, stock-based compensation, and other items within its financial press releases and SEC filings, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.

A further limitation associated with the use of this measure is that the term “Adjusted EBITDA” does not have a standardized meaning. Therefore, other companies may use the same or a similarly named measure but exclude different items or use different computations, which may not provide investors a comparable view of the Company’s performance in relation to other companies. Management compensates for this limitation by presenting the most comparable GAAP measure: net income/(loss), directly ahead of Adjusted EBITDA; within this and other financial press releases and by providing reconciliations that show and describe the adjustments made. In addition, many of the adjustments to the Company’s GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring in nature and will be reflected in the Company’s financial results for the foreseeable future.

Definitions

(1) Segment operating income/(loss). The Company’s chief operating decision maker uses segment operating income/(loss) to evaluate the performance of the business segments and to make decisions about allocating resources among segments. Segment operating income/(loss) is operating income/(loss) excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment of goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets, litigation and dispute settlement charges and gains, transaction-related costs, restructuring and other exit costs, and corporate reorganization costs. In addition, stock-based and incentive compensation and general corporate expenses are not allocated to the segments. Segment operating income/(loss) is prior to intersegment eliminations and excludes other income/(expense), net. Please refer to the tables in this press release for a reconciliation of segment operating income/(loss) to net income/(loss).

(2) Consumer orders. The Company monitors the number of consumer orders for floral, gift, and related products during a given period. Consumer orders are individual units delivered during the period that were originated through our consumer websites, associated mobile sites and applications, and various telephone numbers. The number of consumer orders is not adjusted for non-delivered orders that are refunded on or after the scheduled delivery date. Orders originating with a florist or other retail location for delivery to consumers are not included as part of this number.

(3) Average order value. The Company monitors the average value for consumer orders delivered in a given period, which is referred to as the average order value. Average order value represents the average amount received for consumer orders delivered during a period. The average order value of consumer orders within the U.S. Consumer and International segments is tracked in their local currency, the U.S. Dollar for the U.S. Consumer segment and the British Pound for the International segment. The local currency amounts received for the International segment are then translated into U.S. dollars at the average currency exchange rate for the period. Average order value includes merchandise revenues and shipping or service fees paid by the consumer, less discounts and refunds (net of refund-related fees charged to floral network members).

(4) Average revenues per member. The Company monitors average revenues per member for floral network members in the Florist segment. Average revenues per member represents the average revenues earned from a member of the Company’s floral network during a period. Revenues include services revenues and products revenues, but exclude revenues from sales to non-members. Floral network members include retail florists and other non-florist retail locations that offer floral and gifting solutions. Average revenues per member is calculated by dividing Florist segment revenues for the period, excluding sales to non-members, by the average number of floral network members for the period.

(5) Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income/(loss) before net interest expense; provision for/(benefit from) income taxes; depreciation; amortization; impairment of goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets;  stock-based compensation; transaction-related costs; litigation and dispute settlement charges and gains; gains on sale of business; restructuring and other exit costs; and corporate reorganization costs.

Litigation and dispute settlement charges and gains include estimated losses for which the Company has established a reserve, as well as actual settlements, judgments, fines, penalties, assessments or other resolutions against, or in favor of, the Company related to litigation, arbitration, investigations, disputes, or similar matters. Insurance recoveries received by the Company related to such matters are also included in these adjustments.

Transaction-related costs are certain expense items resulting from actual or potential transactions such as business combinations, mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, spin-offs, financing transactions, and other strategic transactions, including, without limitation, (i) transaction-related bonuses and (ii) expenses for advisors and representatives such as investment bankers, consultants, attorneys, and accounting firms. Transaction-related costs may also include, without limitation, transition and integration costs such as retention bonuses and acquisition-related milestone payments to acquired employees, in addition to consulting, compensation, and other incremental costs associated with integration projects.

Corporate reorganization costs are costs, other than restructuring and other exit costs, associated with our corporate restructuring and cost savings plan such as financial consulting fees, retention bonuses for key employees, travel expenses related to transition of responsibilities between locations, and other similar costs.

(6) Free Cash Flow. The Company defines Free Cash Flow as net cash provided by or used for operating activities less capital expenditures, plus cash paid for transaction-related costs, cash paid or received for litigation and dispute settlement charges or gains, cash paid for restructuring and other exit costs, and cash paid for corporate reorganization costs.
