DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTD Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq:FTD) ("FTD" or the "Company"), a premier floral and gifting company, today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

John C. Walden, FTD's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am pleased with the substantial progress our company achieved during the third quarter. FTD's financial performance in the period was generally in line with our expectations, as we dealt effectively with regional disruption from hurricanes and continued to address the challenges of long-term underinvestment in customers and infrastructure. During the quarter, we also hired new leaders into key marketing and consumer business roles, and they are already making positive impacts on improving marketing effectiveness, merchandising and customer experiences. Importantly, our comprehensive strategic review of the business, which began in May soon after I joined the Company, is now complete and I expect our multi-year strategic plan to be finalized by year-end. I am optimistic about FTD's opportunities to restore its growth and industry leadership, and the management team and I look forward to sharing our plans in more detail at the commencement of 2018."

Third Quarter Results

Consolidated revenues were $161.3 million for the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of 6.7% compared to $172.9 million for the third quarter of 2016, primarily due to a decrease in Consumer segment revenues. Foreign currency exchange rates did not have a significant impact on consolidated revenues during the third quarter of 2017.

Net loss was $76.3 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to net loss of $10.3 million for the third quarter of 2016. The net loss in the current quarter included a non-cash charge of $82.7 million, or $67.5 million net of taxes, for the impairment of goodwill, intangibles, and other long-lived assets. Excluding these charges, net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $8.8 million. Other factors affecting third quarter results include lower amortization of intangible assets, which reduced the net loss, lower revenues and the associated gross profit and increases in general and administrative and sales and marketing expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.9 million, or 1.2% of consolidated revenues, for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $14.4 million, or 8.3% of consolidated revenues, for the third quarter of 2016. 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 $805.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, a decrease of 4.2% compared to $841.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates negatively impacted consolidated revenues by $10.7 million for the first nine months of 2017. The remaining change was primarily due to a decrease in Consumer segment revenues.

Net loss was $57.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to net income of $3.3 million for the first nine months of 2016.  

Adjusted EBITDA was $64.2 million, or 8.0% of consolidated revenues, for the first nine months of 2017, compared to $90.1 million, or 10.7% of consolidated revenues, for the prior-year period.

Segment Results

Provide Commerce Segment: Provide Commerce segment revenues for the third quarter of 2017 decreased 4.3% to $54.6 million, compared to $57.1 million for the third quarter of 2016, primarily as a result of a 3.0% decrease in consumer orders and a 1.0% decrease in average order value. Average order value decreased $0.48 to $49.30 due to a shift in product mix and was partially offset by lower discounts on products. Within the Provide Commerce segment, third quarter 2017 revenues for the Personal Creations and Gourmet Foods businesses increased 7.2% and 1.8%, respectively. ProFlowers revenues decreased 10.7% compared to the prior-year quarter. Provide Commerce segment operating loss was $6.3 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared to an operating loss of $1.8 million in the prior-year quarter.

Provide Commerce segment revenues of $390.2 million for the first nine months of 2017 were relatively flat compared to the first nine months of 2016. Average order value of $50.98 increased 3.0%, or $1.50, partially offset by a 3.0% decrease in consumer orders. Within the Provide Commerce segment, year-to-date 2017 revenues for the Gourmet Foods business increased 8.3% and revenues for the Personal Creations business increased slightly, while revenues for ProFlowers decreased 4.1% compared to the prior-year period. Provide Commerce segment operating income was $21.7 million, or 5.6% of segment revenues, for the first nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $27.4 million, or 7.0% of segment revenues, for the prior-year period.

Consumer Segment: Consumer segment revenues for the third quarter of 2017 decreased 14.9% to $43.6 million, compared to $51.3 million for the third quarter of 2016. This decline was primarily due to a 14.0% decrease in consumer orders and a $1.01, or 1.4%, decrease in average order value to $73.51. Consumer segment operating income was $3.2 million, or 7.4% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $5.0 million, or 9.8% of segment revenues, for the prior-year quarter.

Consumer segment revenues for the first nine months of 2017 decreased 11.0% to $196.5 million, compared to $220.7 million for the first nine months of 2016. This decline was primarily due to a 10.4% decrease in consumer orders and a $0.48, or 0.7%, decrease in average order value to $71.51. Consumer segment operating income was $15.5 million, or 7.9% of segment revenues, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $22.3 million, or 10.1% of segment revenues, for the prior-year period.

Florist Segment: Florist segment revenues for the third quarter of 2017 decreased 5.3% to $34.7 million, compared to $36.6 million for the third quarter of 2016, primarily due to lower product revenues resulting from a change in the timing of holiday container shipments to the fourth quarter of 2017 from the third quarter of 2016 and a decrease in technology system sales. Florist segment operating income was $9.6 million, or 27.6% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $11.4 million, or 31.0% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2016. Average revenues per member increased 0.9% to $3,263 for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $3,233 for the prior-year quarter.

Florist segment revenues for the first nine months of 2017 decreased 1.3% to $125.3 million, compared to $127.0 million for the first nine months of 2016. Product revenues were lower due to a change in the timing of holiday container shipments to the fourth quarter of 2017 from the third quarter of 2016 and a decrease in technology system sales, partially offset by an increase in fresh flower sales. Services revenues declined due to lower order-related revenues. Florist segment operating income was $35.8 million, or 28.5% of segment revenues, for the first nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $36.7 million, or 28.9% of segment revenues, for the prior-year period. Average revenues per member increased 4.8% for the first nine months of 2017 compared to the prior-year period.

International Segment: International segment revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $31.5 million, compared to $31.4 million for the third quarter of 2016. On a constant currency basis, International segment revenues increased 0.6%, or $0.2 million, due to a 2.4% increase in average order value, partially offset by a slight decrease in consumer orders. International segment operating income was $3.4 million, or 10.8% of segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $3.8 million, or 12.3% of segment revenues, for the prior-year quarter. On a constant currency basis, International segment operating income decreased $0.5 million, or 11.8%, for the third quarter of 2017 compared to the prior-year quarter.

International segment revenues for the first nine months of 2017 decreased 8.9% to $106.4 million, compared to $116.8 million for the first nine months of 2016. On a constant currency basis, International segment revenues increased 0.2%, or $0.2 million. International segment operating income was $12.0 million, or 11.3% of segment revenues, for the first nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $15.2 million, or 13.0% of segment revenues, for the prior-year period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Net cash used for operating activities was $18.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to net cash used for operating activities of $3.6 million for the prior-year period. Free Cash Flow was a use of $19.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to a use of $12.0 million for the prior-year period. Use of cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 primarily reflects an increase in third-quarter working capital that is associated with seasonal factors and the decline in net income, excluding non-cash charges. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to the tables in this press release for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial measures.

Cash and cash equivalents were $27.8 million as of September 30, 2017 compared to $81.0 million at December 31, 2016. Total debt was $252.3 million as of September 30, 2017 compared to $276.3 million at December 31, 2016. The reduction in debt for the 2017 period primarily reflects reduced cash holdings offset by higher use of cash for operating activities as compared to the prior-year period.

Business Outlook

The Company is reiterating its outlook for full year 2017 as follows:
  • Consolidated revenues likely toward the lower end of the previous range of down 3% to 4% on a reported basis compared to 2016, or down 2% to 3% on a constant currency basis
  • Net income, excluding impairment charges, of approximately $8 million to $12 million
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin of 7.25% to 7.75% of consolidated revenues
  • Capital expenditures of up to $22 million, which was the low end of the range previously anticipated

In connection with the outlook provided above, please note that the seasonality of the Company's business impacts the quarterly pattern of its profitability and cash flows from operations.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company uses the following non-GAAP measures: Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow as measures of certain components of financial performance. The Company's definitions of Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, 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, other non-operating items, and stock-based compensation. 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 Free Cash Flow provides a relevant measure of the Company's financial performance and ability to generate cash in order to repay debt obligations, repurchase shares, and fund acquisitions or other business initiatives.

Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures 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 these non-GAAP measures by management for the purposes outlined above, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are measures widely used by securities analysts, investors and others to evaluate the financial performance of the Company and its competitors.

Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are 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, and Free Cash Flow does not reflect certain other expenditures, and these measures should not be considered by themselves as measures of the Company's operating performance or cash generation capacity. 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 these measures is that the terms "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Free Cash Flow" do not have standardized meanings. 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 measures: net income/(loss), directly ahead of Adjusted EBITDA; and Cash Provided by/Used for Operations, directly ahead of Free Cash Flow, 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.

The Company also presents certain results for the International segment on a constant currency basis. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if foreign currency exchange rates had remained consistent period-over-period. The Company's International segment operates principally in the U.K. Management monitors sales performance on a non-GAAP basis that eliminates the positive or negative effects that result from translating international sales into U.S. dollars. Management calculates constant currency by applying the foreign currency exchange rate for the prior period to the local currency results for the current period.

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, litigation and dispute settlement charges and gains, transaction-related costs, restructuring and other exit costs, and impairment of goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets. 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 Provide Commerce, Consumer, and International segments is tracked in their local currency, the U.S. Dollar for both the Provide Commerce and Consumer segments and the British Pound ("GBP") 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, stock-based compensation, transaction-related costs, litigation and dispute settlement charges and gains, restructuring and other exit costs, and impairment of goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets.

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.

(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, and cash paid for restructuring and other exit costs.
