PFSweb Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

PFSweb Increases Fiscal 2013 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance to $9-$10.5 Million

ALLEN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PFSweb, Inc. (Nasdaq: PFSW), an international provider of end-to-end eCommerce solutions, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.


"We are pleased with our results for the June 2013 quarter. Higher than expected service fee revenue activity, including project work, partially offset the anticipated decline in revenue and profits related to client transitions. In addition, we continue to make progress implementing initiatives to drive operational efficiencies and reduce costs," stated Mike Willoughby, Chief Executive Officer of PFSweb. "We also continue to see a number of opportunities to expand existing client engagements and sign new customers. Based on client projections, our current business pipeline has strengthened from last quarter to more than $55 million in average annual contract value.

"Our strategic relationship with transcosmos inc. is beginning to yield additional new business opportunities. In July, our management team traveled to China and Japan, where we made a series of presentations to executives on how to expand their eCommerce presence in the United States, Canada and Western Europe. In conjunction with this activity and our new relationship with transcosmos, several companies have already reached out to us to express their interest in our eCommerce solutions, and we have recently delivered our first proposal. In addition, PFSweb is in discussions with several of our existing clients to provide assistance to them with expanding into Asia. Overall, we are confident that these steps will drive growth and help unlock the operating leverage inherent in our business.

"With the higher than anticipated second quarter results and our current expectations of client volumes for the remainder of the year, including this upcoming holiday season, we now believe our 2013 Service Fee Equivalent Revenue will be toward the high end of the previously announced range of $110 million to $115 million, and we are increasing our Adjusted EBITDA target to a range of $9 million to $10.5 million for the year," added Mr. Willoughby.

Summary of consolidated results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013:

  • Service Fee revenue decreased 7% to $26.5 million, compared to $28.4 million for the same period in 2012; Service Fee Equivalent Revenue (as defined) decreased 8% to $28.0 million, compared to $30.5 million for the same period in 2012;
  • Total revenue decreased 13% to $58.2 million, compared to $67.1 million for the second quarter of 2012;
  • Adjusted EBITDA (as defined) decreased 11% to $2.5 million, compared to $2.8 million for the same period in 2012; Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2013 included an incremental benefit of approximately $0.4 million applicable to certain client transition related agreements;
  • Net loss was $1.0 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012; Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 included $0.3 million of restructuring and other charges while net loss for the second quarter of 2012 included $0.3 million of move related expenses;
  • Non-GAAP net loss (as defined) was $0.4 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Summary of consolidated results for the six months ended June 30, 2013:

  • Service Fee revenue decreased 4% to $54.5 million, compared to $56.8 million for the same period in 2012; Service Fee Equivalent Revenue (as defined) decreased 6% to $58.0 million, compared to $61.8 million for the same period in 2012;
  • Total revenue decreased 13% to $121.3 million, compared to $139.8 million for the first six months of 2012;
  • Adjusted EBITDA (as defined) remained flat at $5.4 million in both the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012; Adjusted EBITDA in the 2013 period included an incremental benefit of approximately $1.0 million applicable to certain client transition related agreements;
  • Net loss was $3.5 million, or $0.26 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $1.8 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2012; Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2013 included $2.5 million of restructuring and other charges while net loss for the same 2012 period included $0.9 million of move related expenses and $0.5 million of lease termination costs;
  • Non-GAAP net loss (as defined) was $0.4 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.2 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the 2012 period.

Mr. Willoughby continued, "As we expected, the financial results for the second quarter reflect the partial impact of previously announced client transitions and certain restructuring-related activities, minimized by higher than expected client activity. We currently expect our third quarter results to be more negatively impacted as the remaining client transitions will be completed in the early part of the third quarter. We then expect to see a sequential improvement in our fourth quarter as we realize increased benefits from new and expanded client relationships, including potential new clients from our transcosmos relationship, and seasonal client volumes. Overall, we remain excited about the direction of our business and committed to enhancing value for our shareholders. Given the ramp-up time required to contract and implement new client solutions, we expect the benefits of these opportunities will primarily be reflected in our results beginning in CY2014."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release may contain certain non-GAAP measures, including non-GAAP net income (loss), Earnings Before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA and Service Fee Equivalent Revenue.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) represents net income (loss) calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP as adjusted for the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, restructuring and other charges, lease termination costs and certain move related expenses.

EBITDA represents earnings (or losses) before interest, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further eliminates the effect of stock-based compensation, restructuring and other charges, lease termination costs and certain move related expenses.

Service Fee Equivalent Revenue represents service fee revenue plus the gross profit earned on product revenue.

Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Service Fee Equivalent Revenue are used by management, analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry. The calculation of non-GAAP net income (loss) eliminates the effect of stock-based compensation, restructuring and other charges, lease termination costs and certain move related expenses and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA further eliminate the effect of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending, which items may vary from different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Service Fee Equivalent Revenue allows client contracts with similar operational support models but different financial models to be combined as if all contracts were being operated on a service fee revenue basis.

PFSweb believes these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of its core operating results. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the GAAP results in the attached tables.
