eBay Reports Q2 Revenue Beat, GMV Growth of 3%

eBay Inc. (EBAY) just released its second-quarter 2017 financial results, posting adjusted earnings of $0.34 per share and revenues of $2.33 billion. Currently, EBAY is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) and is down 1.69% to $36.55 per share in trading shortly after its earnings report was released.


Missed earnings estimates. The company posted earnings of 34 cents per share (excluding 32 cents from non-recurring items), missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.36. Investors should note that Zacks adjusts for stock options expenses in its consensus estimates. eBay reported non-GAAP earnings of 45 cents per share, which were in-line with Street estimates.

Beat revenue estimates. The company saw revenue figures of $2.328 billion, just edging out our consensus estimate $2.311 billion.

Total revenues were up nearly 4.4% year-over-year. Gross merchandise volume reached $20.457 billion, up about 3% from the prior-year quarter. Net revenues from eBay’s marketplace were up about 5%, while net revenues from StubHub grew 1%.

eBay expects net revenue between $2.35 billion and $2.39 billion in the third quarter, which would represent organic, FX-neutral growth of 6% -8%. The company also said it expects non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.46 - $0.48 and GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.30 - $0.32.

“In Q2, eBay delivered strong top and bottom line financial results, led by Marketplace acceleration," said CEO Devin Wenig. "During the past two years, we have made significant progress to modernize eBay and drive growth by improving the customer experience, creating a product catalog that covers more than half of our inventory, and sharpening the eBay brand.  We are on track and focused on creating an even stronger eBay for years to come."
