FIGS Releases First Quarter 2024 Financial Results


FIGS, Inc. (NYSE: FIGS) (the "Company"), the global leading healthcare apparel brand dedicated to improving the lives of healthcare professionals, today released its first quarter 2024 financial results and published a financial highlights presentation on its investor relations website at ir.wearfigs.com/financials/quarterly-results.

"Net revenues came in at the upper end of our expectations with adjusted EBITDA margin(1) exceeding our guidance. Importantly, we saw improved momentum in our business, particularly in repeat frequency trends, toward the end of the first quarter and into the second. This recent performance reflects strong engagement with our new product innovation and powerful storytelling campaigns as we returned to our roots," said Trina Spear, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. "In light of these encouraging trends, we're strategically ramping investments, predominantly in marketing, to further fuel growth across our business. As a result of these factors, we are raising our full year net revenues outlook while revising our adjusted EBITDA margin outlook. Importantly, we expect to sustain strong free cash flow,(1) which will help to support long term sustainable profitable growth."

First Quarter 2024 Financial Highlights

Key Operating Metrics

Financial Outlook

For Full-Year 2024, the Company now expects:

Net Revenues versus 2023

-2% to +2%

 

 

Adjusted EBITDA Margin(3)(6)

9.5% - 10.5%

(1) "Net income, as adjusted," "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA margin," "diluted earnings per share, as adjusted" and "free cash flow" are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see the sections titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Operating Metrics" and "Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures" below for more information regarding the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

(2) First quarter 2024 net revenues results reflect $1.4 million in international duty subsidies recorded as contra revenue, whereas international duty subsidies were recorded in selling expense in first quarter 2023. As a result, year over year net revenues growth was negatively impacted by 1.1 percentage point.

(3) "Net income margin" and "adjusted EBITDA margin" are calculated by dividing net income and adjusted EBITDA by net revenues, respectively.

(4) "Active customers," "net revenues per active customer" and "average order value" are key operational and business metrics that are important to understanding the Company's performance. Please see the sections titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Operating Metrics" and "Key Operating Metrics" below for information regarding how the Company calculates its key operational and business metrics and for comparisons of active customers, net revenues per active customer and average order value to the prior year period.

(5) Net revenues per active customer and AOV results for the first quarter 2024 each reflect international duty subsidies recorded as contra revenue, which were not reflected in the results for these metrics for first quarter 2023. As a result, year over year growth in each of these metrics was negatively impacted by approximately 1 percentage point.

(6) The Company has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of its adjusted EBITDA margin outlook to a GAAP net income margin outlook because it is unable, without making unreasonable efforts, to project certain reconciling items. These items include, but are not limited to, future stock-based compensation expense, income taxes, expenses related to non-ordinary course disputes, and transaction costs. These items are inherently variable and uncertain and depend on various factors, some of which are outside of the Company's control or ability to predict. For more information regarding the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Operating Metrics."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Operating Metrics

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, the Company has included non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G and Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K. The Company uses "net income, as adjusted," "diluted earnings per share, as adjusted," "adjusted EBITDA" and "adjusted EBITDA margin" to provide useful supplemental measures that assist in evaluating its ability to generate earnings, provide consistency and comparability with its past financial performance and facilitate period-to-period comparisons of its core operating results as well as the results of its peer companies. The Company uses "free cash flow" as a useful supplemental measure of liquidity and as an additional basis for assessing its ability to generate cash. The Company calculates "net income, as adjusted," as net income adjusted to exclude transaction costs, expenses related to non-ordinary course disputes, other than temporary impairment of held-to-maturity investments, stock-based compensation, including expense related to award modifications, accelerated performance awards and associated payroll taxes and costs, ambassador grants in connection with its initial public offering, and expense resulting from the retirement of the Company's previous CFO, and the income tax impact of these adjustments. The Company calculates "diluted earnings per share, as adjusted" as net income, as adjusted divided by diluted shares outstanding. The Company calculates "adjusted EBITDA" as net income adjusted to exclude: other income (loss), net; gain/loss on disposal of assets; provision for income taxes; depreciation and amortization expense; stock-based compensation and related expense; transaction costs; and expenses related to non-ordinary course disputes. The Company calculates "adjusted EBITDA margin" by dividing adjusted EBITDA by net revenues. The Company calculates "free cash flow" as net cash (used in) provided by operating activities reduced by capital expenditures, including purchases of property and equipment and capitalized software development costs.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included below under the heading "Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures."

The Company has also included herein "active customers," "net revenues per active customer" and "average order value," which are key operational and business metrics that are important to understanding Company performance. The Company believes the number of active customers is an important indicator of growth as it reflects the reach of the Company's digital platform, brand awareness and overall value proposition. The Company defines an active customer as a unique customer account that has made at least one purchase in the preceding 12-month period. In any particular period, the Company determines the number of active customers by counting the total number of customers who have made at least one purchase in the preceding 12-month period, measured from the last date of such period. The Company believes measuring net revenues per active customer is important to understanding engagement and retention of customers, and as such, the value proposition for its customer base. The Company defines net revenues per active customer as the sum of total net revenues in the preceding 12-month period divided by the current period active customers. The Company defines average order value as the sum of the total net revenues in a given period divided by the total orders placed in that period. Total orders are the summation of all completed individual purchase transactions in a given period. The Company believes its relatively high average order value demonstrates the premium nature of its products. As the Company expands into and increases its presence in additional product categories, price points and international markets, average order value may fluctuate.

Active customers as of March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively, net revenues per active customer as of March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively, and average order value for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively, are presented below under the heading "Key Operating Metrics."
