CEO Comments

John Reed, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, commented,

“We delivered another quarter of strong growth in revenue and earnings driven by outstanding execution by our team in implementing our growth strategies and managing our profitability, an improving supply chain and continued demand growth. As our industry faces a dynamic environment with inflationary pressure and macroeconomic challenges, our results in the quarter reflect the strength of our business.

“We are reaffirming our full year net revenue and comparable growth outlook for 2022 and raising our full year net income and adjusted EBITDA outlook. As we look to the future, we remain confident in our strategy and are focused on delivering long-term growth.”

Third Quarter 2022 Results

Net revenue increased 57.4% to $320 million, compared to $203 million in the third quarter of 2021. The increase was driven by strong demand in both Showroom and eCommerce channels, as well as continued improvements across our supply chain. Comparable growth(1) was 54.3% and demand comparable growth(2) was 15.8% in the third quarter of 2022.

Income from operations increased to $47 million, compared to $16 million in the third quarter of 2021, primarily driven by higher net revenue. The benefit from higher net revenue was partially offset by variable expense related to the increased net revenue, including higher product, transportation and variable rent expense, as well as higher credit card fees related to increased interest rates and demand. Also offsetting the benefit from increased net revenue was a $21 million increase in SG&A expenses to support the growth of the business, including additional warehouse expense as we expanded from one to three distribution centers year over year, and new public company related costs.

Net and comprehensive income was $37 million compared to $14 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily driven by higher net revenue, partially offset by the above factors and a higher post-IPO tax rate. Adjusted net income was $38 million in the third quarter of 2022 compared to $20 million in the third quarter of 2021.  

Adjusted EBITDA increased 86.6% to $57 million compared to $30 million in the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net revenue increased 280 basis points to 17.7% in the third quarter of 2022, compared to 14.9% in the third quarter of 2021.

The Company ended the quarter with 80 total showrooms across 28 states.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights, as of September 30, 2022

Cash and cash equivalents were $146 million, and the Company had no long-term debt at September 30, 2022. Net merchandise inventory increased 40.4% to $293 million, compared to $208 million as of December 31, 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, net cash provided by operating activities was $58 million, compared to $141 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $37 million which includes landlord contributions of approximately $11 million and company-funded capital expenditures(3) of approximately $26 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net cash used in investing activities was approximately $30 million, which included landlord contributions of approximately $11 million and company-funded capital expenditures of approximately $18 million. The increase in company-funded capital expenditures was primarily driven by growth-related investments, including new distribution capacity and costs related to new Showroom openings and information technology.

(1) Comparable growth is a key performance indicator and is defined as the year-over-year percentage change of the dollar value of orders delivered (based on purchase price), net of the dollar value of returns (based on amount credited to client), from our comparable Showrooms and eCommerce, including through our direct-mail catalog.
(2) Demand comparable growth is a key performance indicator and is defined as the year-over-year percentage change of demand from our comparable Showrooms and eCommerce, including through our direct-mail catalog.
(3) Company-funded capital expenditures is defined as total net cash used in investing activities less landlord contributions.
(4) U.S. GAAP net income.
(5) We have not reconciled guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP financial measure because we do not provide guidance for the various reconciling items. These items include, but are not limited to, future share-based compensation expense, income taxes, and interest expense. We are unable to provide guidance for these reconciling items because we cannot determine their probable significance, as certain items are outside of our control and cannot be reasonably predicted due to the fact that these items could vary significantly from period to period. Accordingly, reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue and adjusted net income, which present operating results on an adjusted basis.

We use non-GAAP measures to help assess the performance of our business, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. In addition to our results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to our investors as they present an informative supplemental view of our results from period to period by removing the effect of non-recurring items. However, our inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items or that the items for which we have made adjustments are unusual or infrequent or will not recur. These non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentations of these measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and can differ significantly from company to company. These measures should only be read together with the corresponding GAAP measures. Please refer to the reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP below.

(1) We repaid our term loan in full on December 28, 2020. The derivative expense relates to the change in the fair value of the exit fee at the end of each reporting period. The Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the IPO to pay the derivative liability on November 8, 2021.

(2) Other expenses represent costs and investments not indicative of ongoing business performance, such as third-party consulting costs, one-time project start-up costs, severance, signing bonuses, recruiting and project-based strategic initiatives. For the nine and three months ended September 30, 2022, other expenses consisted largely of $4.6 million and $1.6 million of costs related to the opening and set-up of our Dallas distribution center, respectively. For the nine and three months ended September 30, 2021, other expenses consisted primarily of $5.0 million and $3.5 million of costs related to the Reorganization and IPO and $1.5 million and $0.5 million of severance, signing bonuses and recruiting costs, respectively.

(3) The Company applied its normalized tax rate of 23.7% and 20.6% to the adjustment for the nine and three months ended September 30, 2022, respectively.

(4) Prior to the Reorganization and IPO, the Company was a limited liability company under the Internal Revenue Code with a partnership tax election and did not pay federal or most state corporate income taxes on its taxable income. Accordingly, the adjustments for the nine and three months ended September 30, 2021 are not tax affected.
