"Our third quarter results demonstrate significant progress against our long-term objectives and exceeded expectations for all key business metrics," said Jamie Iannone, Chief Executive Officer at eBay. "I'm proud of our team and community for remaining resilient in the face of a challenging macroeconomic environment. With the investments we've made in our tech-led reimagination, we're able to provide even more opportunity and value to our customers during these difficult times."

Third Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $2.4 billion, down 5% on an as-reported basis and down 2% on a foreign exchange (FX) neutral basis.
  • Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) was $17.7 billion, down 11% on an as-reported basis and down 5% on an FX-Neutral basis.
  • GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $70 million, or $(0.13) per diluted share, primarily driven by the change in fair value of our equity investments.
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations was $552 million, or $1.00 per diluted share.
  • GAAP and Non-GAAP operating margin of 23.9% and 28.9%, respectively.
  • Generated $735 million of operating cash flow and $633 million of free cash flow from continuing operations.
  • Sold eBay's remaining shares in Adyen for approximately $120 million.
  • Returned over $421 million to shareholders, including $301 million of share repurchases and $120 million paid in cash dividends.

Business Highlights

  • Recently, eBay completed the acquisition of TCGplayer, a leading technology platform for collectibles and one of the largest online marketplaces for trading card games, for a total deal value of up to approximately $295 million in cash. This acquisition complements eBay's focus category strategy and furthers the company's commitment to trading card enthusiasts – providing eBay with strategic omnichannel capabilities like order fulfillment and cart optimization, maintaining its position as a desirable platform for trading card sellers and enhancing the overall experience for all customers.
  • eBay acquired the myFitment group of companies, a leader in delivering the tools and support to help online automotive and powersports parts and accessories sellers thrive. myFitment's technology and platform provides powerful, easy-to-use and affordable solutions that will elevate the user experience within parts and accessories, helping sellers to drive sales and avoid costly returns.

Revenue Initiatives

  • eBay's first party advertising products, primarily driven by Promoted Listings, delivered $249 million of revenue in the third quarter, up 19% on an as-reported basis and up 27% on an FX-Neutral basis.
  • The company's total advertising offerings generated over $290 million in revenue in the third quarter, representing roughly 1.6% of GMV.
  • During the quarter, eBay expanded Klarna availability to buyers engaged in cross-border transactions in Germany.
  • The company announced faster payment options for sellers, enabling on-demand payouts to a debit card within 30 minutes or less for a fee.

Tech-Led Reimagination of the Platform

  • In collaboration with the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), eBay expanded its Authenticity Guarantee program to new and pre-owned fine jewelry sold for over $500. This marks the expansion of eBay's authentication service to its fifth category, which currently includes sneakers, watches, handbags and trading cards.
  • eBay updated its Authenticity Guarantee service for sneakers, recently expanding the program's eligibility to more sneakers, offering new protections for eligible items, aligning final value fees and partnering with FedEx to provide free shipping labels for sellers to ship sneakers to authentication centers.
  • eBay celebrated the launch of the eBay vault during MLB All Star Weekend with the first-ever trading cards draft, called Vault Stars. The event brought together baseball personalities, Chase Utley and Alanna Rizzo, as they coached and encouraged actor Miles Teller through the creation of his ultimate card lineup to send to the eBay vault. The exclusive event was held in downtown Los Angeles, and garnered more than 1 billion media impressions.
  • To further the company's marketing efforts around trading cards, eBay expanded its presence at New York Comic Con to showcase the eBay vault and continued Live Commerce pilots highlighting brands like Funko and Metazoo.
  • The company continued to increase trust in the Motors Parts & Accessories category, building on several quarters of improvements to the P&A fitment experience like modernizing its taxonomy and integrating fitment-based technologies into search, merchandising and advertising recommendations. eBay is now able to make fitment more pervasive throughout the end-to-end experience, including adding highly visible trust signals throughout the buyer journey in the U.S. and Canada, and reducing the number of steps required to find parts. The company also expanded adoption of My Garage, leading to more personalized shopping on every visit.
  • eBay Motors kicked off a cross-country tour to explore America's unique car cultures. The 'Parts of America' tour is taking eBay Motors to twelve automotive enthusiast events across the country — from car meets and cruises to tractor pulls and rock crawls. At each stop, eBay Motors features one-of-a-kind vehicles that bring to life the local car culture and the passionate builders behind these remarkable rides. To date, the tour has attracted nearly 300,000 attendees and generated more than 500 million impressions across social media and press coverage.
  • eBay partnered with MTV U.K. to revive "Pimp My Ride" — an automotive makeover show from the 2000s — for a six-part YouTube series. The collaboration highlights how economical and environmentally friendly it can be to upcycle and buy pre-loved car parts and accessories on eBay.
  • The company continued to invest in simplifying the listing process for sellers, recently completing the migration of all desktop sellers to one unified listing experience globally, which eliminates multiple legacy tools and enables faster innovation.
  • To further support sellers with building their brand and increasing buyer engagement, eBay upgraded its video and photo capabilities. Sellers can now upload videos to their storefront and listings to showcase themselves and their merchandise in a new, engaging way. eBay also increased the number of listing photos from 12 to 24 at no additional cost in all categories except vehicles.
  • During the quarter, eBay drove site-wide conversion improvements as a result of technology investments, including new AI capabilities in search and SEO improvements to drive better growth across the platform and increase visibility on search engines.
  • In September, the company hosted eBay Open 2022 in the U.S., U.K. and Germany to facilitate seller learning and connections, and to announce new tools to drive buyers and velocity to listings. Features include the eBay vault, 3D True View, eBay Live, the expansion of Authenticity Guarantee, increased shipping options, photos and video upgrades and payments improvements.

Impact

  • eBay announced the recipients of its third annual Up & Running Grant program, which annually awards 50 notable U.S. sellers with $10,000 each plus customized mentorship, training and tools to scale and grow their businesses.
  • eBay published its Southeast Asia Small Online Business Trade Report, detailing how small online businesses across six Southeast Asia countries — Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam — can reach consumers in hundreds of export markets each year through eBay's global marketplace.
  • Through Global Give, the eBay Foundation issued grants to 50 nonprofit organizations that support inclusive entrepreneurship in communities around the world.
  • eBay for Charity contributed more than $33 million globally during the quarter, down 7% year-over-year.

eBay Inc.
Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance 

To supplement the company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, free cash flow and figures in this press release presented on an "FX-Neutral basis." These non-GAAP financial measures are presented on a continuing operations basis.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release, except for figures in this press release presented on an "FX-Neutral basis," can be found in the tables included in this press release. For figures in this press release reported "on an FX-Neutral basis," the company calculates the year-over-year impact of foreign currency movements using prior period foreign currency rates applied to current year transactional currency amounts. The company defines organic FX-Neutral revenue growth as reported revenue growth, excluding incremental revenue from acquisitions or dispositions for the twelve-month period following such acquisitions or dispositions and foreign exchange rate effects.

These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the company's current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, or net purchases of property and equipment, as the case may be, that may not be indicative of its core operating results and business outlook. In addition, because the company has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company's financial reporting.

For its internal budgeting process, and as discussed further below, the company's management uses financial measures that do not include stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock-based compensation, amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses from the disposal/acquisition of a business, certain gains and losses on investments including changes in fair value, changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of any related foreign exchange derivative instruments, gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, restructuring-related charges and the income taxes associated with the foregoing. In addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, the company's management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures in reviewing the financial results of the company.

The company excludes the following items from non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP effective tax rate:

Stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases. The company excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that management does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. The related employer payroll taxes are dependent on the company's stock price and the vesting of restricted stock by employees and the timing and size of stock option exercises, over which management has limited to no control, and as such management does not believe it correlates to the company's operation of the business.

Amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, certain amortization of deferred tax assets and related foreign exchange effects, significant gains or losses and transaction expenses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and certain gains or losses on investments. The company incurs amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets and goodwill in connection with acquisitions and may incur significant gains or losses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and therefore excludes these amounts from its non-GAAP measures. The company also excludes certain gains and losses on investments. The company excludes the non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets associated with the realignment of its legal structure, which is not reduced by the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and related foreign exchange effects. The company excludes these items because management does not believe they correlate to the ongoing operating results of the company's business.

Restructuring. These charges consist of expenses for employee severance and other exit and disposal costs. The company excludes significant restructuring charges primarily because management does not believe they are reflective of ongoing operating results.

Other certain significant gains, losses, or charges that are not indicative of the company's core operating results. These are significant gains, losses, or charges during a period that are the result of isolated events or transactions which have not occurred frequently in the past and are not expected to occur regularly or be repeated in the future. The company excludes these amounts from its results primarily because management does not believe they are indicative of its current or ongoing operating results. These amounts include changes in fair value and the related change in foreign currency exchange rates of equity securities with readily determinable fair values, globally.

Change in fair market value of warrant. These are gains or losses associated with a warrant agreement that the company entered into with Adyen, which are attributable to changes in fair value during the period.

Income tax effects and adjustments. We use a non-GAAP tax rate for evaluating our operating results. Based on our current long-term projections, we are using a non-GAAP tax rate of 16.5%. This non-GAAP tax rate could change for various reasons including significant changes in our geographic earnings mix or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions in which we operate.

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, the company also uses free cash flow. Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less purchases of property and equipment. The company considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property, buildings, and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in the company's business, make strategic acquisitions, repurchase stock and pay dividends. A limitation of the utility of free cash flow as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the company's cash balance for the period.
