May 14, 2014

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CafePress Inc. (NASDAQ: PRSS), The World's Customization Engine®, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Management Commentary

“CafePress’s first quarter results were in-line with our expectations and were highlighted by strong revenue growth in our home and groups categories as well as improvements to gross profit margin,” said chief executive officer Bob Marino. “While our revenue trajectory is not yet where we would like, we believe that initiatives designed to optimize our business and enhance our operations will result in an acceleration of growth in the future. We continue to lead the customized e-commerce market with the largest lineup of customizable products, licensed content and library of user-generated designs in the industry and we are excited about the opportunities open to us in 2014 and beyond.”

First Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenues totaled $48.2 million, compared to $52.5 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP net loss was $5.2 million (including stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and restructuring costs), compared to a net loss of $4.0 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was $0.6 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Gross profit margin was 38.3% of net revenues, compared to 37.4% in the first quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP net loss per diluted share was $(0.30), compared to a net loss of $(0.23), in the first quarter of 2013. GAAP net loss includes a $0.7 million restructuring charge primarily associated with the completion of certain planned facility consolidation activities.
  • Non-GAAP net loss (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and restructuring costs) was $2.0 million, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Non-GAAP net loss per diluted share was $(0.12), compared to non-GAAP net loss per diluted share of $(0.08) in the first quarter of 2013.
  • At March 31, 2014, cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $22.1 million or $1.29 per diluted share.

    First Quarter 2014 Operating Metrics

  • Average Order Size (AOS) was $42, up 18% year-over-year.
  • Orders totaled 1,156,751, a 19% year-over-year decline.

    Order count in the first quarter decreased due to changes in a legacy partner’s roadmap related to photo prints, which carry a lower AOS. This was a contributor to an overall mix change, which produced an increase in AOS.

    First Quarter Operating Highlights

  • Expanded product categories on all Warner Bros. properties to include new property offerings in home, accessories and apparel products.
  • Renewed and expanded relationship with CBS Consumer Products to power the e-commerce experience for more than 15 classic TV favorites.
  • Joined with Marvel Entertainment LLC to continue to bring fans gear drawn from the Marvel catalog of comic book characters with the addition of official Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier merchandise.
  • Continued to expand a partnership with Gold Label Goods, launching an e-commerce store for the hit Netflix® original series Orange is the New Black.
  • Partnered with Staples® (NASDAQ: SPLS) to launch 1,300 in-store kiosks and an online e-commerce solution for Staples®, Copy & Print®.
  • Expanded CafePress.com’s international reach with the launch of localized sites for Ireland (www.cafepress.ie) and New Zealand (www.cafepress.co.nz)
  • Launched new functionality for the popular TFUND apparel site including a new social interface, a support wall and integrated video.
  • Continued to add new products available for customization including bus rolls on CafePress’ CanvasOnDemand and GreatBigCanvas.com properties.

    On February 13, 2014, CafePress announced that its Board of Directors had authorized the review of various strategic alternatives to enhance value for stockholders and that it had retained Raymond James & Associates as the exclusive independent financial advisor. The Company notes that no decision on any particular alternative has been reached at this time and cautions that there can be no assurances as to whether any strategic alternative will be recommended by the Board or implemented and under what terms and conditions.

    Business Outlook

    “Looking ahead, we expect that our second quarter results will be driven by growth from key categories including art, home and groups, muted by declines in certain legacy business-to-business partnerships. During the balance of 2014 we expect to continue adding new e-commerce partnerships and launching additional social and mobile programs to drive growth in the long-term. Our expectations for modest growth for the year are unchanged at this time and we are therefore reiterating our full year 2014 guidance,” said Garett Jackson, interim chief financial officer.

    For the second quarter of 2014:

  • Net revenues in the range of $48.0 million to $52.0 million.
  • GAAP net loss ranging from $(5.3) million to $(4.3) million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA ranging from a loss of $(1.3) million to $0.3 million.
  • GAAP net loss per diluted share of $(0.31) to $(0.25).
  • Non-GAAP net loss per diluted share of $(0.14) to $(0.08).
  • Weighted average fully diluted shares estimated at 17.5 million.

    CafePress is reiterating its fiscal year 2014 revenue and EBITDA guidance with updates to net loss and income (loss) per diluted share related to first quarter adjustments to acquisition related costs, related tax effects, and expected utilization of tax loss carrybacks:

  • Net revenues ranging from $244 million to $256 million.
  • GAAP net loss ranging from $(11.1) million to $(7.7) million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $7.0 million to $11.0 million.
  • GAAP net loss per diluted share of $(0.64) to $(0.44).
  • Non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share of $(0.12) to $0.01.
  • Weighted average fully diluted shares of approximately 17.6 million.
  • Total capital expenditures in the range of $11 million to $14 million.
