Despite some challenges typical of a new high-growth company, I am confident that the business is well positioned to succeed in the current competitive environment and generate profitable growth and increased shareholder value over the long-term.”

Second Quarter 2018 Review

Second quarter 2018 net revenue increased 58.1% to $75.4 million, compared to $47.7 million in the second quarter of 2017. The increase in net revenue was driven primarily by higher direct-to-consumer demand for mattresses, fueled by increased marketing investments. The second quarter of 2018 also benefitted from contributions from mattress sales in the wholesale channel, which launched in the fourth quarter 2017.

Gross margin for the second quarter 2018 was 43.8% compared to 44.4% in the year ago period. The decrease was partially driven by higher freight costs early in the quarter associated with the new mattress models that were initially flat-packed as opposed to rolled post the February launch, combined with lower net revenues relative to gross revenues as a result of higher dollar returns.  These headwinds were partially offset by the higher product margins from the new mattress models.

Operating expenses were $36.5 million in the second quarter 2018 compared to $17.5 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses is primarily attributable to higher marketing investments to expand brand awareness and drive consumer demand for the Company’s product portfolio.     

Operating loss was $(3.5) million, compared to an operating income of $3.6 million in the prior year. Adjusted operating loss was $(2.9) million compared to an adjusted operating income of $4.0 million in second quarter 2017. Adjusted operating loss excludes stock-based compensation expense and CEO search costs.

Net loss was $(4.3) million for the second quarter 2018 compared to a net income of $3.6 million in the year ago period.

EBITDA for the second quarter 2018 was $(2.9) million compared to $3.8 million in the second quarter 2017. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes stock-based compensation expense and CEO search costs was $(2.3) million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $4.1 million last year.

Balance Sheet Highlights

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $10.4 million compared to $3.6 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2017. Inventories as of June 30, 2018 totaled $33.2 million compared with $13.3 million as of December 31, 2017.

2018 Outlook

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company expects net revenue to be between $71.0 million and $75.0 million and adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $(1.0) million to $1.0 million.

For 2018, the Company still expects net revenue to be between $290.0 million and $310.0 million, an increase of between 47% and 57% over annual 2017, and adjusted EBITDA of approximately breakeven.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Operating Loss and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that remove the impact of costs incurred due to the merger transaction with GPAC, as well as certain other nonrecurring legal fees and severance payments. Management believes that the use of such non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional useful information with respect to the impact of various adjustments, which we view as a better measure of our operating performance. Refer to the attached table for the reconciliation of such non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measure.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(In thousands)

Management believes that the use of the following non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional useful information with respect to the impact of various adjustments, which we view as a better measure of our operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating loss. Other companies may calculate these non-GAAP measures differently than we do. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of GAAP Net (Loss) Income to Non-GAAP EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
A reconciliation of GAAP net (loss) income to the non-GAAP measures of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA is provided below. EBITDA represents net (loss) income before interest expense, other (income) expense, net and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding costs incurred due to the merger transaction with GPAC, stock-based compensation expense, nonrecurring legal fees and severance and CEO search costs.
