EBay Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Results

Global commerce platform and payments leader eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) today reported that revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, increased 13% to $4.5 billion, compared to the same period of 2012. The company reported fourth quarter net income on a GAAP basis of $850 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income of $1.1 billion, or $0.81 per diluted share. Fourth quarter non-GAAP and GAAP earnings per share increased 16% and 14%, respectively, driven primarily by strong top-line growth. For the full year 2013, revenue grew 14%, non-GAAP earnings per share grew 15%, and GAAP earnings per share grew 9%.

Total company Enabled Commerce Volume (ECV) increased 22% in the fourth quarter, accelerating one point, to $61 billion in commerce volume for merchant partners and brands. For the full year, ECV increased 21%, accelerating two points to $212 billion. Both Marketplaces and PayPal achieved record mobile results in 2013, each exceeding $20 billion in mobile volume. Mobile users represented 40% of eBay Inc.’s 36 million new users and accounts in 2013, contributing $35 billion in ECV, up 88%.

“We feel good about our performance and strong finish in the fourth quarter, with the holiday shopping season clearly showing how online, mobile and other omni-channel commerce capabilities are changing how consumers shop and pay,” said eBay Inc. CEO and President John Donahoe. “Mobile exceeded expectations for the year. Our total mobile commerce volume grew 88 percent, with eBay reaching $22 billion and PayPal hitting $27 billion in 2013. And mobile added more than 14 million customers. PayPal and eBay together create an incredibly strong global commerce ecosystem for consumers and merchants, and we continue to see tremendous growth opportunities ahead.”

PayPal delivered a strong fourth quarter performance with accelerating momentum in its merchant services business. Revenue increased 19% in both the quarter and the full year, resulting in $6.6 billion in 2013. PayPal gained 5.2 million active registered accounts in the quarter and ended the year with 143 million, a 16% increase. PayPal's net total payment volume (TPV) grew 25% in the quarter with 3 billion transactions generating $180 billion in net TPV for the full year. On-eBay payment volume grew 14% in both the quarter and for the full year, producing $54 billion in net TPV for the year. Merchant Services net TPV increased 31% in the quarter and 29% for the full year, resulting in $125 billion in net TPV for the year. Mobile was a key catalyst, with payments volume off eBay growing 128% for the year. Total mobile payment volume for the year was $27 billion. The fourth quarter also saw the close of the Braintree acquisition.
