eBay Inc. Reports Strong Second Quarter 2013 Results

16:15 EDT Wednesday, July 17, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Business Wire) -- Global commerce platform and payments leader eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) today reported that revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, increased 14% to $3.9 billion, compared to the same period of 2012. The company reported second quarter net income on a GAAP basis of $640 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income of $822 million, or $0.63 per diluted share. The year-over-year increase in second quarter non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was driven primarily by strong top-line growth. GAAP earnings per diluted share declined on a year-over-year basis due to a gain on the divestiture of a business in 2012.

Total company Enabled Commerce Volume (ECV) grew 21% for the quarter, to $51 billion. The growth demonstrates the power of the company's global commerce platforms. Marketplaces, PayPal and eBay Enterprise connect merchants, retailers and brands of all sizes with consumers everywhere. Cross-border trade in the second quarter was $11 billion, representing 22% of the company's total ECV. The company's mobile commerce leadership is also driving an efficient channel for growth and engagement, with mobile attracting 3 million new customers in the quarter and growing more than 90%. eBay Inc.'s mobile assets and capabilities are delivering innovative, seamless commerce experiences for merchants and consumers across multiscreen shopping environments.

"We had a strong second quarter, with $51 billion of enabled commerce volume across Marketplaces, PayPal and eBay Enterprise driving double-digit revenue and earnings growth," said eBay Inc. President and CEO John Donahoe. "Macroeconomic headwinds in Europe and Korea will continue to be a challenge in the second half of the year. But our core businesses are strong and we continue to attract millions of new customers each quarter through mobile innovation. We remain confident in our ability to meet our goals and drive global commerce innovation and leadership."

PayPal delivered a strong second quarter performance with revenue increasing 20% to $1.6 billion. PayPal gained 4.7 million active registered accounts in the period and ended the quarter with 132 million, a 17% increase. PayPal's net total payment volume (TPV) grew 24% to $43 billion driven by consumer and merchant use of PayPal both on and off eBay. PayPal continues to invest in growing its addressable market, product development, and consumer awareness. Payment velocity increased with a sequential acceleration of both the number of transactions and payment volume. PayPal made strides offline with PayPal Here now live in six countries while growing domestic merchant coverage by signing agreements with more than 50 merchant acquirers to facilitate usage of PayPal over the Discover network.

Marketplaces delivered a strong second quarter performance with revenue of $2.0 billion, increasing 10%, or 12% excluding the gain from the resolution of an indirect tax dispute in 2012. Marketplaces gained 3.5 million active users in the period and ended the quarter with 120 million, a 14% increase. Gross merchandise volume (GMV), excluding vehicles, increased 13% to $18 billion. Fixed price GMV grew 17% globally and represented 69% of total GMV. U.S. GMV, excluding vehicles, increased 16% to $7.3 billion driven by mobile and momentum in the parts & accessories and home & garden categories. International GMV, excluding vehicles, increased 11% to $11 billion, showing stable growth while facing a tougher macroeconomic environment. Marketplace's new search engine, which went live in North America in the second quarter, will help to enable smarter, faster and more intuitive search experiences.

GSI Commerce was renamed eBay Enterprise, reflecting the partnership that the business offers to retailers and brands through its comprehensive technology solutions and marketing services. eBay Enterprise contributed $246 million in revenue for the second quarter, an 11% increase. Its enterprise commerce platform generated $815 million in global ecommerce (GeC) Merchandise Sales, a 21% increase. eBay Enterprise enabled its clients to grow faster than the ecommerce market as measured by the 19% same store sales growth, but revenue was pressured by a reduction in take rate. The company expects its omnichannel product portfolio, including complementary eBay Inc. assets, to be increasingly adopted by merchants seeking opportunities to grow their businesses while seamlessly meeting the needs of their customers.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

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 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, 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. In addition, the company's results are also impacted by hedge transactions related to unique movements of cash from significant business acquisitions or dispositions. 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.

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.
