·16-min read

SAN FRANCISCO, August 09, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ContextLogic Inc. (d/b/a Wish) (Nasdaq: WISH), one of the largest mobile ecommerce platforms, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Second-Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenues: Revenues were $134 million, a decrease of 80% YoY

    • Core Marketplace revenues were $54 million, down 86% YoY

    • Product Boost revenues were $11 million, down 78% YoY

    • Logistics revenues were $69 million, down 70% YoY

  • Net Loss: Net Loss was $90 million, a 19% YoY improvement

    • Net Loss per share was $0.13, compared to a loss of $0.18 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2021

"We remain laser focused on the transformation of our business and have already made some significant improvements to the consumer experience, delivery times, and customer service, which have led to an increase in NPS scores and lower product refund rates," said Vijay Talwar, Wish CEO. "While we are not immune to changes in consumer spending habits driven by macroeconomic factors, which could impede our accelerated growth plans for the second half of 2022, we are confident in moving forward with our exciting new initiatives, such as the rebranding of Wish and the relaunch of Women's Fashion."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Guidance

  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be a loss in the range of ($110) million to ($130) million.

*Wish has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of forecasted Adjusted EBITDA to forecasted GAAP net income (loss) for total Adjusted EBITDA or to forecasted GAAP income (loss) before income taxes for segment Adjusted EBITDA within this earnings release because the company is unable, without making unreasonable efforts, to calculate certain reconciling items with confidence. These items include, but are not limited to: stock-based compensation and income taxes which are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in the market price of the company's Class A common stock.

Conference Call & Webcast Information

Information about Wish’s financial results, including a link to the live webcast and replay will be made available on the company’s investor relations website at https://ir.wish.com. The live conference call may be accessed by registering using this online form. Upon registration, all telephone participants will receive the dial-in number along with a unique PIN number that can be used to access the call.

Subsequent Event

On August 9, 2022, Wish announced the resignation of Piotr Szulczewski from the Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Szulczewski has served on the Company's Board since the Company’s inception in July 2010. In conjunction with Mr. Szulczewski's resignation, the Board of Directors has elected Larry Kutscher as an independent director to the Wish Board. Both of these changes are effective immediately.

Separately, Wish announced today that Mr. Szulczewski has converted all of his high voting Class B shares into Wish Class A shares. This decision simplifies the Company’s shareholding structure, moving from a dual to single class structure. Mr. Szulczewski’s share conversion establishes voting rights parity for all Wish shareholders and reduces his outstanding voting rights from approximately 62% to approximately 8%, not including options that are immediately exercisable.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We provide Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that represents our net income (loss) adjusted to exclude: interest and other income (expense), net (which includes foreign exchange gain or loss, foreign exchange forward contracts gain or loss and gain or loss on one-time non-operating transactions); provision or benefit for income taxes; depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense and related payroll taxes; lease impairment related expenses; and other items. Additionally, in this news release, we present Adjusted EBITDA Margin, a non-GAAP financial measure that represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. The reconciliation between historical GAAP and non-GAAP results of operations is provided below. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with GAAP and other operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of the company’s performance for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies and to communicate with its board of directors concerning its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative financial measure to net loss, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. We also provide Free Cash Flow, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure that represents net cash used in operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. We believe that Free Cash Flow is an important measure since we use third parties to host our services and therefore we do not incur significant capital expenditures to support revenue generating activities. The reconciliation between net cash used in operating activities and Free Cash Flow is provided below. Free Cash Flow has limitations as an analytical measure, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our net cash used in operating activities, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical fact could be deemed forward-looking, including, but not limited to, statements regarding Wish’s outlook including expectations with respect to adjusted EBITDA and expectations regarding new business strategies. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terms such as "anticipates," "believes," "could," "estimates," "expects," "foresees," "forecasts," "guidance," "intends" "goals," "may," "might," "outlook," "plans," "potential," "predicts," "projects," "seeks," "should," "targets," "will," "would" or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. Risks include, but are not limited to: our ability to attract, retain and monetize users; risks associated with software updates to the platform; the effectiveness of our CEO transition; increasing requirements on collection of sales and value added taxes; the success of our execution on new business strategies; compromises in security; changes by third-parties that restrict our access or ability to identify users; competition; disruption, degradation or interference with the hosting services we use and infrastructure; our financial performance and fluctuations in operating results; pressure and fluctuation in our stock price, including as a result of short selling and short squeezes; challenges in our logistics programs; challenges in growing new initiatives; the effectiveness of our internal controls; the continued services of members of our senior management team; our ability to offer and promote our app on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store; our ability to promote, maintain, and protect our brand; legal matters; the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; supply chain issues; the impact of inflation; global conflicts, including the Russian invasion of Ukraine; and economic tension between the United States and China. New risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for our management to predict all risks, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make. Further information on these and additional risks that could affect Wish’s results is included in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and future reports that Wish may file with the SEC from time to time, which could cause actual results to vary from expectations. Any forward-looking statement made by Wish in this news release speaks only as of the day on which Wish makes it. Wish assumes no obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements after the date of this release.

The unaudited financial results in this news release are estimates based on information currently available to Wish. While Wish believes these estimates are meaningful, they could differ from the actual amounts that the company ultimately reports in its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. Wish assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these estimates prior to filing its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

A Note About Metrics

The numbers for some of our metrics, including MAUs and LTM Active Buyers, are calculated and tracked with internal tools, which are not independently verified by any third party. We use these metrics to assess the growth and health of our overall business. While these numbers are based on what we believe to be reasonable estimates of our user or merchant base for the applicable period of measurement, there are inherent challenges in measurement as the methodologies used require significant judgment and may be susceptible to algorithm or other technical errors. In addition, we regularly review and adjust our processes for calculating metrics to improve their accuracy, and our estimates may change due to improvements or changes in technology or our methodology.

Non-GAAP Statement of Operations

Our presentation of non-GAAP Statement of Operations excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and related payroll taxes. This measure is not a key metric used by our management and board of directors to measure operating performance or otherwise manage the business. However, we provide non-GAAP Statement of Operations as supplemental information to investors, as we believe the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense and related payroll facilitates investors’ operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis. You should not consider the non-GAAP Statement of Operations in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
