eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY), a global commerce leader that connects millions of buyers and sellers around the world, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March?31, 2020.

"During these unprecedented times, I am extremely proud of how our team has come together to support one another, our buyers and sellers, our communities and the business," said Scott Schenkel, eBay Inc. "As we look at Q1, I am pleased that we delivered on all of our commitments for the quarter, with key metrics such as Buyers, GMV and Revenue performing at or better than our expectations. Over the past several months, we have remained focused and clear-eyed about the strategic direction of the company and have driven substantial changes to position the business for sustainable and profitable long-term growth."?

"I appreciate the team's hard work in the first quarter and their efforts to maintain focus amid so many factors affecting the business and the industry," said Jamie Iannone, Chief Executive Officer of eBay Inc. "I'm thrilled to return to eBay this week as CEO and I look forward to building on the positive momentum in the business, continuing to evolve the Company's strategy and maximizing value for our shareholders."

COVID-19 Response and Business Impacts

  • We believe our strong balance sheet, stable cash flows, low capital intensity and disciplined capital management approach gives us the strength and flexibility to adapt to this tough economic environment and to enable investment in our sellers and customers.
  • As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, our priority is the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and communities. To that effect, we have taken immediate action to support our stakeholders.
  • Nearly all global employees are working from home. In mainland China, Taiwan and Korea we are now managing a staggered return to the office.
  • eBay Foundation has donated over $3.0 million in grants to nonprofits around the world, along with $500,000 in support to Silicon Valley Strong.
  • Through eBay for Charity, we are matching up to $1.0 million in contributions made by U.S. customers who donate a portion of sales to Feeding America, Direct Relief and Opportunity Fund.
  • In the U.K., we announced a partnership with the National Health Service (NHS), the Department for Health and Social Care and others to pilot a new platform to supply primary care and social care providers with access to personal protective equipment for free at the point of order from NHS Supply Chain.
  • We have implemented measures designed to ensure our platform remains safe and trusted for buyers, removing or blocking over 15 million listings to date globally that make false health claims or offer products at inflated prices, in line with price gouging rules.
  • We have offered to defer fees for hundreds of thousands of eBay sellers to support their cash flow needs, provided eBay Store subscribers with up to 100,000 extra listings for free and implemented additional protections for Seller Performance Standards.
  • eBay has helped launch and grow hundreds of thousands of small businesses, and now we've created Up & Running to accelerate the start-up time frame for Main Street retailers opening online stores amid the pandemic.
  • From the start of the quarter through mid-March our underlying business performance was better than our expectations.
  • Since mid-March, our Marketplace platforms have experienced strength in key metrics - traffic, buyer acquisition, conversion, sold items and GMV - due to ongoing shelter-in-place dynamics in many countries. The Marketplace platforms have also experienced improved acquisition of small business sellers. This strength has continued into April.
  • Our Classifieds platforms have been adversely impacted by recent auto dealer closures in many international markets, lower traffic to horizontal classifieds sites around the world due to social distancing requirements and lower advertising revenues. This pressure has continued into April.
  • The impacts seen in both platforms to date could continue while shelter-in-place guidelines remain active, and it is difficult to predict what may result as shelter-in-place guidelines are eased and lifted and how global consumer demand and seller inventory may evolve over time.
  • Our capital allocation strategy and key tenets and targets have not changed.

  • eBay's transition to managed payments continues to build momentum, processing over $3.0 billion of GMV for over 32,000 sellers.

  • In Q1, Promoted Listings delivered $137 million of revenue, up 109% on an as-reported basis and up 111% on a FX-Neutral basis. Nearly 1.2 million sellers promoted more than 310 million listings in the quarter.
  • Seller Initiated Offers scaled to over 1.5 million per day driven by increased adoption and item eligibility.
  • Introduced a new feature, "Image Clean-Up," available in all markets, that uses computer vision technology to create a more consistent-looking buyer experience and is more effective in Google Shopping for both Android and iOS. Since launch, more than one third of sellers are using this new tool.
  • eBay's Retail Revival program launched in Austin, Texas, with adaptations of the program, "Export Revival," also launching globally in Athens, Greece.
  • eBay continues to explore potential value-creating alternatives for its Classifieds business, is holding active discussions with multiple parties, and anticipates having an update by the middle of the year.

Other Selected Financial and Operational Results

  • Taxes – The GAAP effective tax rate for continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 was 23.2%, compared to 21.3% for the first quarter of 2019. The non-GAAP effective tax rate for continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 was 16.4%, compared to 17.0% for the first quarter of 2019.
  • Cash flow – The company generated $702 million of operating cash flow from continuing operations and $604 million of free cash flow during the first quarter of 2020.
  • Capital returns – The company repurchased approximately $4.0 billion of its common stock, or approximately 98 million shares, in the first quarter of 2020. The company's total repurchase authorization remaining as of March 31, 2020 was $3.2 billion. The company also paid cash dividends of $114 million during the first quarter of 2020.
  • Cash and cash equivalents and non-equity investments – The company's cash and cash equivalents and non-equity investments portfolio totaled $5.2 billion as of March 31, 2020.

Business Outlook

  • Second quarter 2020 — The company expects net revenue between $2.38 billion and $2.48 billion, representing Organic FX-Neutral growth of 2% - 6%, with GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.50 - $0.57 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.73 - $0.80.
  • Full year 2020 — The company expects net revenue between $9.56 billion and $9.76 billion, representing Organic FX-Neutral growth of 1% - 3%, with GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $2.20 - $2.30 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $3.00 - $3.10.
  • Given the dynamic environment, we are not revising our full year revenue and EPS estimates. This guidance reflects management's expectations for operational performance and the impacts seen in both of our Marketplaces and Classifieds platforms to date, but given the uncertainty surrounding the extent and duration of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult to predict what may result as shelter-in-place guidelines are eased and lifted and how global consumer demand, the effects of COVID-19 on the general economy, seller inventory and advertising spending may evolve over time.

Capital Allocation

  • Distributed $4.0 billion in the form of share buybacks and repurchased nearly 98 million shares, inclusive of an accelerated share repurchase plan that will be completed later this year.
  • eBay's Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.16 per share of the company's common stock. The dividend is payable on June 19, 2020 to stockholders of record as of June 1, 2020.

Non-GAAP?Financial Measures

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as "non-GAAP financial measures" by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC): non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, free cash flow and FX-Neutral basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a continuing operations basis. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures, except for figures in this press release presented on a "FX-Neutral basis", to the nearest comparable GAAP measures, see "Business Outlook," "Non-GAAP?Measures of Financial Performance," "Reconciliation of GAAP?Operating Margin to Non-GAAP?Operating Margin," "Reconciliation of GAAP?Net Income to Non-GAAP?Net Income and Reconciliation of GAAP Effective Tax Rate to Non-GAAP?Effective Tax Rate" and "Reconciliation of Operating Cash Flow to Free Cash Flow" included in this press release. For figures in this press release reported "on a FX-Neutral basis", we calculate the year-over-year impact of foreign currency movements using prior period foreign currency rates applied to current year transactional currency amounts. We define organic FX-Neutral revenue growth as reported revenue growth, excluding incremental revenue from acquisitions or dispositions for the twelve-month period following such acquisitions or dispositions and foreign exchange rate effects.

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, free cash flow and figures in this press release presented on a "FX-Neutral basis". 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, except for figures in this press release presented on a "FX-Neutral basis", can be found in the tables included in this press release. For figures in this press release reported "on a FX-Neutral basis", the company calculates the year-over-year impact of foreign currency movements using prior period foreign currency rates applied to current year transactional currency amounts. The company defines organic FX-Neutral revenue growth as reported revenue growth, excluding incremental revenue from acquisitions or dispositions for the twelve-month period following such acquisitions or dispositions and foreign exchange rate effects.

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. ?
