Care.com Announces Strong Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results
WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 30, 2018--Care.com (NYSE:CRCM), the world’s largest online destination for finding and managing family care, today is announcing financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.
“We had a strong second quarter of 2018, with revenue at the top end of our guidance range and – while we were just below breakeven on GAAP net income as a result of the foreign exchange impact of a weakening Euro – EBITDA generated across our businesses exceeded our expectations and EBITDA margin was double prior year at 13%. These notable EBITDA gains were driven by the strength in the underlying health of our core US Consumer business, which continued to show strong improvements in unit economics as we also grew end-of-period paying families by 10% versus prior year. As a result, we generated an incremental $7 million in cash,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder, Chairwoman and CEO of Care.com. “Over the past couple of years, we have been pleased with our continuous progress on initiatives that we expect will drive consistent long-term profitable growth – including top line acceleration in 2019 and beyond.”
Financial ResultsRevenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $46.0 million, an increase of 10% from $42.0 million in the second quarter of 2017. Revenue attributable to the US Consumer offering totaled $35.6 million in the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 7% from $33.4 million in the second quarter of 2017.Revenue attributable to the Care@Work and other B2B Offerings, as well as our services in our international markets, totaled $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 21% from $8.6 million in the second quarter of 2017. Net loss was $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, a decrease of $1.9 million, primarily attributable to an increase in stock-based compensation expense and a foreign exchange loss resulting from the weakening of the Euro. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2017, an improvement of $3.3 million. GAAP EPS (Diluted) was ($0.03) in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $0.03 in the second quarter of 2017. Q2 GAAP EPS (Diluted) was based on 30.6 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding versus 32.2 million in the second quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP EPS (Diluted) was $0.14 in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $0.11 in the second quarter of 2017. Note that Non-GAAP EPS excludes the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation, adjustments relating to preferred stock and other non-recurring items, such as M&A expenses and restructuring costs. The Company ended the quarter with $113.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments.
Business HighlightsOur total members grew 17% to 29.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2018, compared to 25.2 million in the same period of 2017. Total families grew to 16.9 million at the end of the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 19% over the same period of 2017, and total caregivers grew to 12.7 million at the end of the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 16% over the same period of 2017.
Future GAAP Net Income and GAAP EPS may be significantly affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments, and may also be affected by non-recurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, which we are not able to estimate and which therefore are excluded in the calculation of the Company’s non-GAAP EPS guidance as described in this press release. Due to the nature of any such items, we are not able to estimate their significance, and it is therefore currently not practical to reconcile adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the financial measures presented in the Company’s press release and related conference call or webcast in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), we also present the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”).
A “non-GAAP financial measure” refers to a numerical measure of the Company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company’s financial statements. The Company provides certain non-GAAP measures as additional information relating to its operating results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a measure of the Company’s liquidity. There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare the Company’s performance to that of other companies.
The Company has presented: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP financial measures in this press release. We define adjusted EBITDA as income / (loss), which excludes the accretion of preferred stock dividends and issuance costs, as well as: federal, state and franchise taxes, other income (expense), net, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, accretion of contingent consideration, merger and acquisition related costs, and other unusual or non-cash significant adjustments, such as impairment and restructuring charges. Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending, which is based on the Company’s estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets. We define non-GAAP net income as income / (loss), which excludes the accretion of preferred stock dividends, plus stock-based compensation, accretion of contingent consideration, merger and acquisition related costs, and other unusual or non-cash significant adjustments such as impairment and restructuring charges. We define non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP net income divided by diluted weighted-average shares outstanding, using the treasury stock method.
The Company believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures, as a supplement to GAAP measures, is useful to investors in that they eliminate items that are either not part of the Company’s core operations or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation. Care.com’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results, and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance.
