Key Highlights:

  • Net revenue for the third quarter 2021 decreased approximately 2% year over year to $109.7 million and increased approximately 10% compared to net revenue in the pre-pandemic third quarter of 2019.

  • Continued year over year growth in Average Order Value, which increased over 6% to $62.30, reflecting the benefit of the company’s growth strategy. Average Order Value, Orders per Customer and Average Revenue per Customer all showed strong growth compared to the pre-pandemic third quarter of 2019, despite modest declines in those metrics from a year ago as seasonality returned.

  • Third quarter 2021 net loss was $27.6 million, inclusive of a non-cash charge of approximately $6.4 million related to the change in fair value of the warrant obligation issued to the company’s lenders. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $11.7 million.

  • Subsequent to the third quarter, strengthened balance sheet and significantly improved financial flexibility by completing an equity capital raise with gross proceeds of $78.0 million.

  • Plans to use a portion of the net proceeds from the capital raise to significantly increase investments in marketing initiatives in 2022, primarily to drive new customer growth which is expected to result in at least mid-teens percentage year over year net revenue growth.

  • Announced plans for expanded Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives.

NEW YORK, November 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blue Apron Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:APRN) announced today financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

"Our focus on providing increased variety and flexibility to our customers through the continued roll out of product innovations, including Heat & Eat, our first-ever prepared, single-serving meal, has proven to be successful, as evident in the growth of our Average Order Value (AOV) to a third quarter record of $62.30. We are encouraged by 2021 third quarter net revenue of $109.7 million, which marked a more than 10% increase compared to the third quarter of 2019, which we accomplished despite the return to more normal seasonality experienced in Q3, as well as external challenges related to higher labor, food and logistics costs. We also maintained a strong rate of five orders per customer in the quarter, even as travel was cited by customers as the greatest driver of cycle skips in the third quarter and at the highest level since we started tracking the data," said Linda Findley, Blue Apron’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "Blue Apron’s attractive customer subscription business model combined with an e-commerce go-to-market strategy positions us to build on the strength of our key customer metrics in order to grow consistently. Customers are now ordering from us over 20 times a year on average and are increasingly adding a broader variety of products to each order. Our focus on leveraging product innovation and flexibility to attract, engage and retain higher-value customers has established a foundation for sustainable strength in our key customer metrics.

"In the 2021 third quarter, we also announced a $78.0 million equity capital raise, which was completed last week. This provides us with capital to continue to invest in our growth strategies, including further strengthening our market position in 2022 and beyond. Throughout the fourth quarter, we are preparing Blue Apron for a series of aggressive marketing initiatives next year, including spend in new customer acquisition channels. Our marketing investments are primarily focused on accelerating new customer growth in 2022 from our total addressable market, which we have identified as approximately 55 million U.S. households based on our key demographics. We remain focused on expanding our customer base and the ongoing execution of our growth strategies with the goal of driving at least mid-teens percentage year-over-year net revenue growth in 2022. We expect the benefits of scale resulting from increases in customers and net revenue, combined with our capex-light business model, will over the long-term drive additional liquidity which we can deploy to deliver consistent improvements in our offerings and results and grow shareholder value."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Net revenue in the third quarter of 2021 decreased approximately 2% year over year to $109.7 million as the year-ago quarter reflected heightened demand from the various pandemic restrictions that continued to be in effect to varying levels across the United States. The decrease in net revenue was primarily due to a decrease in Orders and Customers, partially offset by an increase in Average Order Value reflecting the continued execution of the company’s growth strategy, including through product innovation. Third quarter 2020 net revenue was negatively impacted by approximately $2.0 million of credits issued for customer boxes affected by a voluntary recall of onions supplied to the company.

  • Cost of goods sold, excluding depreciation and amortization (COGS), as a percentage of net revenue, increased 50 basis points year over year from 66.4% to 66.9% largely driven by an increase in food and shipping costs due to price increases, the increased use of premium ingredients related to enhanced product offerings to provide product variety and additional choice for customers, as well as fuel surcharges, partially offset by a decrease in labor costs as temporary wage increases that were put in place last year in response to the pandemic were not repeated in the third quarter of 2021.

  • Marketing expenses were $14.9 million, or 13.5% of net revenue, in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $10.9 million, or 9.7% of net revenue, in the third quarter of 2020, as the company had moderated marketing efforts in 2020 to help manage fulfillment center capacity.

  • Product, technology, general and administrative (PTG&A) costs increased approximately 5% year over year from $33.7 million in the third quarter of 2020 to $35.2 million in the third quarter of 2021 primarily reflecting wage increases and certain headcount increases to support the company’s growth strategy and execution on key business initiatives. As a percentage of net revenue, PTG&A increased 210 basis points year over year from 30.0% to 32.1%.

  • Other income (expense), net was approximately $(6.4) million driven by a non-cash fair value adjustment resulting from the company’s obligation under the May 2021 amendment to the company’s financing agreement to issue warrants to its lenders on a quarterly basis, beginning on July 1, 2021, so long as the debt remains outstanding.

  • Net loss was $27.6 million, and diluted loss per share was $1.17, in the third quarter of 2021 based on 23.7 million weighted-average common shares outstanding, compared to net loss of $15.3 million, and diluted loss per share of $0.96, in the third quarter of 2020 based on 15.9 million weighted-average common shares outstanding.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $11.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Balance Sheet and ESG Initiatives

  • Cash and cash equivalents were $35.3 million as of September 30, 2021.

  • Cash used in operating activities totaled $16.5 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to cash used of $7.1 million in the third quarter of the prior-year period reflecting working capital changes and increased net loss. Capital expenditures totaled $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Free cash flow was $(17.6) million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $(9.1) million in the third quarter of 2020 driven mainly by lower operating cash flow, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

  • On September 15, 2021, the company entered into a purchase agreement with RJB Partners LLC, an affiliate of Joseph N. Sanberg, an existing stockholder, and Matthew B. Salzberg, the company’s co-founder, under which the company engaged in an equity capital raise for aggregate gross proceeds of $78.0 million, without giving effect to the receipt of any exercise price of any warrants issued in the transactions. The equity capital raise included a $45.0 million rights offering fully backstopped by RJB Partners LLC, a private placement with the backstop provider for gross proceeds of $30.0 million and private placement with Mr. Salzberg for gross proceeds of $3.0 million.

    • The Salzberg private placement closed on September 15, 2021, resulting in $2.8 million of proceeds, net of issuance costs.

    • The fully backstopped rights offering and the private placement with RJB Partners LLC closed on November 4, 2021, resulting in approximately $70.5 million of proceeds, net of issuance costs.

    • The company plans to use the net proceeds of the equity capital raise for working capital and general corporate purposes, including to accelerate its growth strategy to drive revenue and customer growth, expand its ESG initiatives including achieving carbon neutrality targets by early 2022 through the purchase of carbon offsets and to increase wages, benefits, and training for its hourly employees.

2021/2022 Outlook

Blue Apron today provided an outlook for certain financial metrics, reflecting assumptions regarding the business, including the consistent benefit to our business of the execution and acceleration of the company’s strategic growth initiatives, including the impact of the planned use of proceeds from the capital raise to increase investments in marketing and technology initiatives, as well as making operational improvements. The following guidance also assumes that the company will not experience any unforeseen significant disruptions in its fulfillment operations or supply chain.

With the benefit of the recently completed capital raise, Blue Apron expects to augment its focus on the expansion of its key customer metrics with an increased focus on customer growth. As such, the company intends to accelerate its marketing investments in the fourth quarter of 2021 and plans to support these higher marketing investments with additional promotional discounts for new customer acquisition and reactivation programs. As a result, Blue Apron now expects to deliver single digit revenue growth for full year 2021 compared to full year 2020 as these new marketing investments are intended to impact growth starting in 2022.

Looking ahead, the company expects to deliver net revenue growth for full year 2022 of at least in the mid-teens percentage range compared with full year 2021. The planned acceleration of the company’s growth strategy through increased marketing spend is designed to drive revenue and customer growth which, together with the increased spend to meet the announced ESG initiative goals and the increases in hourly wage rates, Blue Apron does not expect to achieve adjusted EBITDA profitability in 2022.

The company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this press release as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, that are not prepared in accordance with, nor an alternative to, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

The company defines adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) before interest income (expense), net, other operating expense, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, other income (expense) net, benefit (provision) for income taxes and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to eliminate share-based compensation expense. The company presents adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by the company’s management and board of directors to understand and evaluate the company’s operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. In particular, the company believes that the exclusion of certain items in calculating adjusted EBITDA can produce a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the company’s business. Further, Blue Apron uses adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its operating performance and trends and make planning decisions, and it believes that adjusted EBITDA helps identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the items that the company excludes. Accordingly, Blue Apron believes that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of the company’s past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by its management in its financial and operational decision-making.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of adjusted EBITDA rather than net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable GAAP equivalent. Some of these limitations are:

  • adjusted EBITDA excludes share-based compensation expense, as share-based compensation expense has recently been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense for the company’s business and an important part of its compensation strategy;

  • adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization expense and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may have to be replaced in the future;

  • adjusted EBITDA excludes other operating expense, as other operating expense represents non-cash impairment charges on long-lived assets, a non-cash gain, net of termination fee, on lease termination, and restructuring costs;

  • adjusted EBITDA excludes loss on extinguishment of debt as this represents a non-cash charge;

  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect other (income) expense net, as this represents changes in the fair value of the liability-classified warrant obligation as of each reporting period;

  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest, which reduces cash available to us;

  • adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that reduce cash available to us; and

  • other companies, including companies in the company’s industry, may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

The company defines free cash flow as net cash from (used in) operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. The company presents free cash flow because it is used by the company’s management and board of directors as an indicator of the amount of cash the company generates or uses and to evaluate the company’s ability to satisfy current and future obligations and to fund future business opportunities. Accordingly, Blue Apron believes that free cash flow provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of the company’s ability to satisfy its financial obligations and pursue business opportunities, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to a key financial metric used by its management in its financial and operational decision making.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of free cash flow rather than net cash from (used in) operating activities, which is the most directly comparable GAAP equivalent. Some of these limitations are:

  • free cash flow is not a measure of cash available for discretionary expenditures since the company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt repayments or capital lease obligations that are not deducted from the measure; and

  • other companies, including companies in the company’s industry, may calculate free cash flow differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow should be considered together with other financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP is set forth below under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

Use of Key Customer Metrics

This press release includes various key customer metrics that the company uses to evaluate our business and operations, measure its performance, identify trends affecting its business, project its future performance, and make strategic decisions.
