CafePress Reports Third Quarter 2014 Results

Company Divests InvitationBox.com Asset as Part of Strategic Review Process

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CafePress Inc. (NASDAQ:PRSS) today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

Management Commentary

"CafePress made operational progress during the third quarter as we focused on streamlining our business to drive towards profitable growth and improve the consumer experience," said Chief Executive Officer Fred Durham. "During the period we began to optimize pricing and improve the ROI of our marketing. We also launched or expanded key content and e-commerce partnerships. We also recently signed a definitive agreement to divest the InvitationBox.com stationery business, in line with our intent to simplify operations and reduce the complexity associated with managing multiple brands. This is a step in our plan to drive shareholder value by focusing on our core CafePress.com asset and restoring the health of the business."

Third Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenues totaled $48.6 million, compared to $50.4 million in the third quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP net loss was $(6.4) million, or $(0.37) per diluted share, (including stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, benefit (provision) for income taxes, acquisition and restructuring costs), compared to a net loss of $(3.1) million, or $(0.18) per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $(2.1) million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2013.
  • Non-GAAP net loss was $(2.8) million, or $(0.16) per diluted share, (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, benefit (provision) for income taxes, acquisition and restructuring costs), compared to non-GAAP net loss of $(1.0) million, or $(0.06) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.
  • Gross profit margin was 36.4% of net revenues, compared to 39.3% in the third quarter of 2013.
  • At September 30, 2014, cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $12.7 million. The third quarter is historically the low point of the year for CafePress from a working capital perspective. The Company expects to generate cash in the fourth quarter as it has historically, feels its cash position is sufficient to fund its operations for the foreseeable future, and has a $5 million unused line of credit.

Third Quarter 2014 Operating Metrics

  • Average Order Size (AOS) was $42, up 12% year-over-year.
  • Orders totaled 1.1 million, a 14% year-over-year decline.

The decrease in order count in the third quarter was primarily related to photo print partners, which carry a lower AOS. This was a contributor to an overall mix change, which produced an increase in AOS.

Third Quarter Operating Highlights

CafePress has recently:

  • Partnered with The Weinstein Company to launch an e-commerce shop for the movie The Giver
  • Joined with Lionsgate Entertainment to offer unique fan designs for film property The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 on CafePress.com
  • Partnered with Borman Entertainment to add personalization products to the official Keith Urban online store
  • Continued support for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® with a campaign generating donations from focused product sales and an interactive social media campaign
  • Launched personalization experience and added curated content to www.personalizationuniverse.com for 1-800-FLOWERS.com®
