CafePress Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

Company Recently Announced Stock Repurchase Authorization Following Divestitures of its Art and Groups Businesses

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CafePress Inc. (NASDAQ:PRSS) today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Management Commentary

"CafePress has made measurable progress as we significantly simplified our company by divesting our Art and Groups businesses. We believe these transactions have strengthened our balance sheet and our recently announced stock repurchase program is a further example of our commitment to unlocking shareholder value. During the first quarter, we saw encouraging signs of early progress toward improving our Adjusted EBITDA, contribution margin and customer satisfaction scores," said Fred Durham, Chief Executive Officer.

"We are taking proactive steps toward optimizing our business and operating as a leaner company focused on generating higher quality revenues. We believe that our data-driven approach to understanding opportunities with customers and partners will result in an increased ability to capture the very substantial opportunities within the personalized e-commerce market. We still have substantial work ahead of us as we continue to look for operational efficiencies while keeping a sharp focus on expense management. While these strategic moves may create near term pressure on revenue, we are extremely excited by the long-term prospects for CafePress," concluded Mr. Durham.

First Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenues totaled $27.4 million, compared to $30.9 million in the first quarter of 2014.
  • GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $(3.1) million, or $(0.18) per diluted share, (including stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and restructuring costs), compared to a net loss of $(6.4) million, or $(0.37) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014.
  • GAAP net income from discontinued operations was $14.9 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, (including stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and restructuring costs), compared to net income of $1.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014, including a pre-tax gain of approximately $17 million related to the divestitures of the Art and Groups businesses.
  • Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $(2.0) million, or $(0.12) per diluted share, (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and restructuring costs), compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $(3.1) million, or $(0.18) per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $(1.2) million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(2.6) million in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Gross profit margin was 34.7% of net revenues, compared to 35.3% in the first quarter of 2014.
  • At March 31, 2015, cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $51.4 million.

First Quarter 2015 Operating Metrics

  • Average Order Size (AOS) was $28, down 6% year-over-year.
  • Orders totaled 0.9 million, an 11% year-over-year decline.

The decrease in order count in the first quarter was driven by both a decline in our white label photo-prints business, and the shift in our marketing focus on higher quality ROI channels. The average order size decreased primarily due to the higher volume of single item orders through CafePress Services.
