ALBANY, N.Y., 2017-Aug-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — CommerceHub, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHUBA) (NASDAQ:CHUBK) (“CommerceHub,” “we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”), a leading distributed commerce network for retailers and brands, today (Aug. 02, 2017) announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

“We are pleased with the solid second quarter results we announced today, including continued revenue growth and expanding profitability,” said Frank Poore, CommerceHub’s Founder, President and CEO. “We are excited to announce the addition of two strategic retailer customer wins during the quarter, making four year-to-date and delivering on the high-end of our goal of 2-4 new retailer customers per year. One is a top 10 U.S. retailer, and the other marks our first retail drop-ship customer in the U.K. The U.S. win demonstrates our market leadership and our ability to deliver high-volume drop-ship fulfillment at scale. The U.K. win establishes a beachhead for our drop-ship offerings and should help to further unlock the U.K. market for CommerceHub.”

“In addition to $2.2 million of net income for the quarter, we generated $8.6 million in adjusted EBITDA, representing 34 percent of revenue for the quarter and a 7 percentage point improvement over the same period last year. We also delivered strong free cash flow and continued to pay down debt, strengthening our net cash balance,” said Mark Greenquist, CommerceHub’s CFO. “We are pleased with our recent customer wins and believe this new U.S. retailer could eventually become a top 10 customer for CommerceHub.”

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $25.2 million, a 9% year-over-year increase from $23.1 million in 2016. Core drop-ship revenue, which excludes revenue from our demand channel solutions, increased 14%.
  • Gross margin was 78%, compared to 77% in 2016.
  • Adjusted gross margin was 78%, compared to 75% in 2016.
  • Net income was $2.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to $4.4 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in 2016.
  • Adjusted net income was $3.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $8.6 million, compared to $6.3 million in 2016.
  • Operating cash flow was a positive $7.1 million, compared to a negative $73.3 million in 2016, which was impacted by a non-recurring cash payment of $78.5 million in share-based compensation related to our spin-off from Liberty Interactive.
  • Free cash flow was a positive $6.5 million, compared to a negative $76.5 million in 2016.

Other Recent Highlights

  • We expanded our CommerceHub for Retailers network with the signing of a top 10 U.S. retailer that we believe has the potential to become a top 10 customer for CommerceHub. This win is a conversion of an existing in-house drop-ship program, which we believe demonstrates the complexity of such programs and the value CommerceHub can deliver through increased operational efficiencies, improved customer service and capital-efficient expansion of product assortments.
  • We signed our first U.K. retailer drop-ship customer. This is a mid-sized U.K. retailer seeking to expand its ecommerce business by leveraging CommerceHub’s drop-ship model, while reducing inventory risk and operating costs.
