Ebay Inc. Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

Gross Merchandise Volume of $20.5 billion

Revenue of $2.1 billion

Non-GAAP and GAAP EPS per diluted share of $0.47 and $0.41, respectively, on a continuing operations basis

Repurchased $1.0 billion of common stock

- eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY), a global commerce leader, today reported that gross merchandise volume (GMV) for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $20.5 billion, increasing 5% on a foreign exchange (FX) neutral basis and 1% on an as-reported basis, reflecting the continued impact of a strong U.S. dollar. Revenue for the quarter was $ 2.1 billion, up 6% on an FX-Neutral basis and 4% on an as-reported basis, driving non-GAAP net income from continuing operations

of $550 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, and GAAP net income from continuing operations

of $482 million, or $0.41 per diluted share. During the quarter, the company generated

$641 million

of operating cash flow and

$483 million

of free cash flow from continuing operations while also repurchasing $1.0 billion of its common stock.

“Q1 represents another quarter of solid results, as we continue to position eBay for long-term success,” said Devin Wenig, President and CEO of eBay Inc. “We are executing our plan and making progress on our strategic priorities to ensure our buyers have the best choice of products and a simple, personalized shopping experience, while sellers benefit from our powerful selling platform.”

Underlying total eBay Inc. performance, the Marketplace platforms delivered $19.6 billion of GMV and $1.8 billion in revenue for the first quarter. Marketplace revenue was up 3% on an FX-Neutral basis and flat year over year on an as-reported basis, driven by stable GMV growth and strong performance in Marketing Services & Other. StubHub had another quarter of strong performance, driving GMV of $869 million and revenue of $177 million, up 34%, aided by strength in sports and concerts in addition to a number of product innovations. The Classifieds platforms delivered another quarter of accelerating growth with revenue of $186 million, up 17% on an FX-Neutral basis and up 15% on an as-reported basis, primarily driven by strong performance in Germany and the United Kingdom.

In Q1, eBay continued to increase the amount of inventory on its platforms, with over 900 million live listings available at any time. eBay also leveraged its structured data initiative to launch improved user experiences on its Marketplace platform, such as the ability to search by product ID and a newly redesigned browse experience that enables shoppers to find great deals and top-selling products in an easy-to-navigate way. During the quarter, StubHub introduced several new product innovations, including a ticket recommendation engine, as well as the ability for fans to use virtual reality to enable an immersive view from available seats. Finally, Classifieds launched several user enhancements, including in-app chat on mobile, allowing buyers and sellers to message each other and facilitate an easier, faster buying experience.

Some of the factors that could affect the company's operating results are set forth under the caption “Forward-Looking Statements” above in this press release. More information about factors that could affect the company's operating results is included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in its most recent annual report on Form 10-K and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, copies of which may be obtained by visiting eBay's investor relations website at

Three Months Ending

June 30, 2016

Diluted EPS from continuing operations

(a) Estimated non-GAAP amounts above for the three months ending June 30, 2016, reflect adjustments that exclude the estimated amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $10 - $15 million and estimated stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes on stock-based compensation expense of approximately $100 - $110 million as well as the related tax impact.

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, 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 is 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, 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 impact of the accretion of a note receivable associated with the disposal of certain businesses. 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.
