share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook
08/06/2020 | 08:31am EDT

Waitr Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: WTRH) (“Waitr” or the “Company”), a leader in on-demand food ordering and delivery, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $60.5 million, compared to $51.3 million in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 18%.
  • Net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $10.7 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $24.9 million, or a loss of $0.32 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019, a change of $35.6 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 for the second quarter of 2020 was $16.7 million, compared to a loss of $14.9 million in the second quarter of 2019, a change of $31.6 million.
  • As of July 31, 2020, cash on hand was $87.3 million.
  • On August 3, 2020, the Company prepaid $10.5 million in debt in exchange for a rate decrease of 200 basis points for 1 year along with an extension of the maturity date 1 year to November 15, 2023 on both its credit facility and convertible notes.

“We are pleased with our second quarter results, especially our strong revenue growth and profitability. Our solid performance in the second quarter is a result of the initiatives we implemented pre-pandemic and the hard work of our team members, our restaurant partners and our drivers, as well as the trust that we have earned from our customers who have relied on us to deliver high-quality food throughout the pandemic,” said Carl Grimstad, Chairman and CEO of Waitr.

“We continue to reinforce our presence in our most important markets by increasing delivery areas, adding grocery and alcohol delivery services, and expanding our customer service and dispatch teams,” continued Grimstad. “All of these growth initiatives are being supported by a leaner cost structure with an eye on efficiencies and appropriate returns on deployed capital.”

Since the onset of the pandemic, Waitr has been nimble in adapting its business. Waitr continues to actively work with our local communities, diners, restaurant partners, drivers and employees in joint efforts to mitigate risks and hardships arising from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Company has been working with new and existing restaurant partners to boost delivery potential and sustain their businesses in the current environment, and has provided restaurants with free marketing and promotional support, discounted delivery fees and other assistance. Waitr has also recently added a donation feature to its app, the proceeds from which go to charities to help feed those in need, including Feeding America.

“The continued demand for our services enables us to provide communities with employment opportunities for drivers. The increase in the number of drivers, in turn, expands capacity and improves service for our restaurant partners and diners,” concluded Grimstad.

  • Research and development expense decreased to $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2020, in comparison to $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2019.
  • General and administrative expense decreased by 18% to $10.1 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $12.4 million for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Depreciation and amortization expense decreased to $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2020 from $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Second Quarter Key Business Metrics

  • Average Daily Orders for the second quarter of 2020 were 44,241, an increase of 18% over first quarter 2020 average daily orders of 37,576.
  • Active Diners as of June 30, 2020 were over 2 million.

Liquidity Update

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had cash on hand of $66.7 million, of which $3.2 million was reserved under a compensating balance arrangement with a bank. The Company had total long-term debt outstanding at June 30, 2020 of $109.5 million, consisting of $59.6 million of term loans, $49.6 million of convertible notes and $0.3 million of promissory notes. The term loans and convertible notes mature in November 2023. Short-term debt as of June 30, 2020 included $12.5 million for the current portion of the term loans and $2.1 million of short-term loans.

The combination of the effects of implementing several strategic initiatives focused on improving revenue per order, cost per order, cash flow and profitability, along with proceeds from the sales of common stock pursuant to the at-the-market offerings launched by the Company in March and May 2020 resulted in increases in working capital and liquidity from December 31, 2019.

Other Information

Waitr will not be hosting a conference call to discuss the second quarter 2020 operational and financial results.

Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements,” as defined by the federal securities laws, including statements regarding the Company’s financial results, implementation of strategic initiatives and future performance of the Company. Forward-looking statements reflect Waitr’s current expectations and projections about future events at the time, and thus involve uncertainty and risk. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “may,” “plan,” “estimate,” “intend,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” and the negatives of these words and other similar expressions generally identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, including the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the Company’s business and operations, and those described under the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Waitr’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, filed with the SEC on March 16, 2020, as such factors may be updated from time to time in Waitr’s periodic filings with the SEC, which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Additional information will be set forth in Waitr’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2020, which will be filed with the SEC on August 6, 2020, and should be read in conjunction with these financial results. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this release and in Waitr’s filings with the SEC. While forward-looking statements reflect Waitr’s good faith beliefs, they are not guarantees of future performance. Waitr disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect changes in underlying assumptions or factors, new information, data or methods, future events or other changes after the date of this press release, except as required by applicable law. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based only on information currently available to Waitr (or to third parties making the forward-looking statements).

Waitr has thus far been able to operate effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the potential impacts and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and on the Company’s business, in particular, may be difficult to assess or predict. The pandemic has resulted in, and may continue to result in, significant disruption of global financial markets, which may reduce the Company’s ability to access capital and continue to operate effectively. The COVID-19 pandemic could also reduce the demand for the Company’s services. In addition, a recession or further financial market correction resulting from the spread of COVID-19 could adversely affect demand for the Company’s services. To the extent that the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacts the Company’s business, results of operations, liquidity or financial condition, it may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in the risk factors in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, acquisition and restructuring costs, stock-based compensation expense, impairments of intangible assets and goodwill, gains and losses associated with derivatives and debt extinguishments and when applicable, other expenses that do not reflect our core operations. We use this non-GAAP financial measure as a key performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences primarily caused by variations in capital structures, tax positions, the impact of acquisitions and restructuring, the impact of depreciation and amortization expense on our fixed assets and the impact of stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

See “Non-GAAP Financial Measure/Adjusted EBITDA” below for a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.
