  • – GAAP and Non-GAAP EPS per diluted share of $0.46 and $0.68, respectively, on a continuing operations basis
  • – GAAP and Non-GAAP operating margin of 20.9% and 26.9%, respectively
  • – Returned $1.6 billion to shareholders in Q2, including $1.5 billion of share repurchases and $120 million paid in cash dividends

eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY), a global commerce leader, delivered revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $2.7 billion, increasing 2% on an as-reported basis and 4% on a foreign exchange (FX) neutral basis, primarily driven by gross merchandise volume (GMV) of $22.6 billion, down 4% on an as-reported basis and flat on a FX-Neutral basis.

During the quarter, eBay delivered GAAP net income from continuing operations of $403 million, or $0.46 per diluted share and Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $589 million, or $0.68 per diluted share. The company generated $744 million of operating cash flow and $607 million of free cash flow from continuing operations while also repurchasing approximately $1.5 billion of its common stock and paying $120 million in cash dividends in the quarter.

“We remained focused on building our active buyer base, delivering outstanding customer experiences, and accelerating our growth initiatives in the second quarter,” said Devin Wenig, President and CEO of eBay Inc. “Managed payments continues to exceed expectations, while first party advertising is providing significant benefits to sellers, and new features are making our marketplace easier to use.”

In the second quarter, eBay grew active buyers by 4% across its platforms, for a total of 182 million global active buyers. Underlying total eBay performance, the Marketplace platforms delivered $2.2 billion of revenue and $21.5 billion of GMV. Marketplace revenue growth was 1% on an as-reported basis and 3% on a FX-Neutral basis, and GMV was down 5% on an as-reported basis and down 1% on a FX-Neutral basis. StubHub platforms drove revenue of $264 million, up 7% on both an as-reported and FX-Neutral basis, and GMV of $1.1 billion, up 5% on an as-reported basis and up 6% on a FX-Neutral basis. Classifieds platforms delivered revenue of $271 million, up 5% on an as-reported basis and up 12% on a FX-Neutral basis.

Based on these results and increased confidence in the year, eBay raised EPS guidance for the full year for the second quarter in a row.

Growth Initiatives

eBay accelerated adoption of its new payments platform, with over 6,000 sellers opting into the program. The company achieved more than $270 million of GMV during the quarter, an increase of 24% quarter-over-quarter that brings the total GMV since launch to $636 million. The PayPal integration for all enrolled U.S. sellers is complete and the offering in Germany is on track to be live by the end of 2019, pending regulatory approval.

First-party advertising continued its impressive growth trajectory. In the second quarter, over 940,000 sellers leveraged first-party advertising to promote over 250 million listings, resulting in $89 million of revenue, a year-over-year growth rate of over 130% on a FX-Neutral basis.

eBay also continued to simplify the buying experience and make the platform more powerful for sellers. The company launched new pages that transformed previously unstructured listings into a more intuitive set of product results, unveiled Brand Outlet, and broadened the simplified returns process to more customers. New seller features were announced to increase buyer conversion including Buy Again, Trending in Your Interests and an expanded Offers to Buyers. The Volume Pricing user interface was dramatically improved, making it much easier for sellers to offer volume-based discounts and for buyers to act on those discounts. In addition, eBay introduced new APIs that will give third-party developers access to managed payments, Promoted Listings and Login with eBay.

Portfolio Update

eBay has taken two actions in the last several weeks to strengthen its portfolio. First, the company has reached a commercial agreement with Paytm Mall to bring eBay’s global inventory onto one of the largest marketplaces in India. Second, eBay has reached an agreement to sell its flash sale German business brands4friends. The company is also actively reviewing the role and value of StubHub and Classifieds in its portfolio to determine the best path forward to maximize shareholder value.

(1)All buyers who successfully closed a transaction on our Marketplace and StubHub platforms within the previous 12-month period. Buyers may register more than once, and as a result, may have more than one account. Starting in the second quarter of 2018, year-over-year growth rate is on a pro-forma basis, which includes Giosis’ Japan business active buyers in both current and prior year periods.
(2)Total value of all successfully closed transactions between users on our Marketplace and StubHub platforms during the period regardless of whether the buyer and seller actually consummated the transaction. We believe that GMV provides a useful measure of the overall volume of closed transactions that flow through our platforms in a given period, notwithstanding the inclusion in GMV of closed transactions that are not ultimately consummated.

eBay Inc.
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 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, amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses from the disposal/acquisition of a business, certain gains and losses on investments, gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, 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 are 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, certain amortization of deferred tax assets and related foreign exchange effects, 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 non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure, which is not reduced by the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and related foreign exchange effects. 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.

Change in fair market value of warrant. These are gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, which are attributable to changes in fair value during the period.

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, repurchase stock and pay dividends. 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.
