NEW YORK, July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Travelzoo® (NASDAQ: TZOO):

  • Revenue of $17.7 million, down 7% year-over-year
  • In constant currencies, revenue was $18.2 million
  • Non-GAAP operating profit of $2.6 million
  • Earnings per share (EPS) of $0.08 attributable to Travelzoo from continuing operations

Travelzoo, a global Internet media company that provides exclusive offers and experiences for members, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. Consolidated revenue was $17.7 million, down 7% from $19.1 million year-over-year. In constant currencies, revenue was $18.2 million. Travelzoo's reported revenue consists of advertising revenues and commissions, derived from and generated in connection with purchases made by Travelzoo members.

The reported net income attributable to Travelzoo from continuing operations was $1.0 million for Q2 2022. At the consolidated level, including minority interests, the reported net income from continuing operations was $1.0 million. EPS from continuing operations was $0.08, compared to $0.22 in the prior-year period.

Non-GAAP operating profit was $2.6 million. The calculation of non-GAAP operating profit excludes amortization of intangibles ($0.2 million) and stock option expenses ($0.6 million). GAAP operating profit was $1.8 million. See section “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

"In Q2, we achieved in North America an operating margin of 25%. We believe we can achieve significant increases in EPS in the near future. Revenue is expected to reach and exceed pre-pandemic levels", said Holger Bartel, Global CEO. "Travelzoo members are affluent, active, and open to new experience. 84% say Travelzoo influences their travel destinations because they trust Travelzoo."

Cash Position
As of June 30, 2022, consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash were $26.7 million. Net cash used in operations was $10.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. Cash was used primarily in connection with a decrease of merchant payables by $11.8 million. The Company also received cash of $1.9 million from an option exercise in Q2 2022.

Reserve
Reported revenues include a reserve of $2.9 million related to commissions to be earned from vouchers sold. The reserve is booked as contra revenue.

Travelzoo North America
North America business segment revenue decreased 11% year-over-year to $12.4 million. Operating profit for Q2 2022 was $3.1 million, or 25% of revenue, compared to an operating profit of $3.5 million in the prior-year period.

Travelzoo Europe
Europe business segment revenue increased 3% year-over-year to $4.4 million. At constant currencies, Europe business segment revenue increased 17% year-over-year. Operating loss for Q2 2022 was $1.5 million, compared to an operating loss of $227,000 in the prior-year period. The operating loss was primarily driven by investments in member acquisition which were all expensed in Q2.

Jack’s Flight Club
On January 13, 2020, Travelzoo acquired 60% of Jack’s Flight Club, a membership subscription service. Jack’s Flight Club revenue increased 11% year-over-year to $952,000. Non-GAAP operating profit for Q2 2022 was $378,000, compared to a non-GAAP operating profit of $445,000 in the prior-year period. After consolidation with Travelzoo, Jack’s Flight Club's net income was $76,000, with $46,000 attributable to Travelzoo as a result of recording $217,000 of amortization of intangible assets related to the acquisition.

Licensing
In June 2020, Travelzoo entered into a royalty-bearing licensing agreement with a local licensee in Japan for the exclusive use of Travelzoo’s brand, business model, and members in Japan. In August of 2020, Travelzoo entered into a royalty-bearing licensing agreement with a local licensee in Australia for the exclusive use of Travelzoo’s brand, business models, and members in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore. Under these arrangements, Travelzoo’s existing members in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, and Singapore will continue to be owned by Travelzoo as the licensor. Licensing revenue is booked with a lag of one quarter. Travelzoo recorded $5,000 in licensing revenue from the licensee in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore in Q2 2022. Licensing revenue is expected to increase going forward.

Members and Subscribers
As of June 30, 2022, we had 30.7 million members worldwide. In North America, the unduplicated number of Travelzoo members was 16.5 million as of June 30, 2022, down 7% from June 30, 2021. In Europe, the unduplicated number of Travelzoo members was 9.1 million as of June 30, 2022, up 7% from June 30, 2021. Jack’s Flight Club had 1.8 million subscribers as of June 30, 2022, up 9% from June 30, 2021.

Discontinued Operations
As announced in a press release on March 10, 2020, Travelzoo decided to exit its Asia Pacific business and operate it as a licensing business going forward. Consequently, the Asia Pacific business has been classified as discontinued operations since March 31, 2020. Prior periods have been reclassified to conform with the current presentation. Certain reclassifications have been made for current and prior periods between the continued operations and the discontinued operations in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Income Taxes
Income tax expense was $928,000 in Q2 2022, compared to an income tax expense of $1.1 million in the prior-year period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management calculates non-GAAP operating income when evaluating the financial performance of the business. Travelzoo’s calculation of non-GAAP operating income, also called “non-GAAP operating profit” in this press release and today’s earnings conference call, excludes the following items: impairment of intangibles and goodwill, amortization of intangibles, stock option expenses, and severance- related expenses. This press release includes a table which reconciles GAAP operating income to the calculation of non-GAAP operating income. Non-GAAP operating income is not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"). This information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Looking Ahead
For Q3 2022, we currently expect higher revenue year-over-year and profitability. We continue to see a trend of recovery of our revenue. However, there could be unexpected fluctuations in the short term. During the pandemic, we have been able to lower our fixed costs. We believe we can keep our fixed costs relatively low in the foreseeable future—while revenue is expected to grow.

Conference Call
Travelzoo will host a conference call to discuss second quarter results and provide an update on Travelzoo META today at 11:00 a.m. ET. Please visit http://ir.travelzoo.com/events-presentations to
