Message from the Founder and CEO, Marcio Kumruian:

During 2Q-2018 we made important progress on several fronts of the business as we continue to pursue a more moderate growth strategy in our B2C online operation to focus on achieving profitability.

Our B2C online operation grew 6.4% year-over-year on an FX neutral basis, impacted along with the rest of the retail and fashion industry in Brazil by the truckers’ strike in May and a warmer winter season. These events not only affected sales, but also margins during the quarter. In this environment we acted quickly to increase efficiency of our marketing spend while we benefited from lowered technology maintenance costs due to the implementation of our new IT platform. Additionally, we took further steps to rationalize other general and administrative expenses. A combination of these actions resulted in an improvement of our operating results during the quarter.

We have a concrete action plan in place aimed at improving our business economics. We are already seeing initial traction, including a reduction in the inventory cycle by 17 days as compared to 1Q-2018, contributing significantly to the R$70 million operating cash generation. Importantly, we have also restructured of the Company’s bank debt, deferring R$108 million in principal amortization through a twelve-month grace period and a one-year term extension. These changes are providing more financial comfort during the time our operations need to respond to the changes we are implementing in the short-term.

Looking ahead we continue to work hard to strengthen the foundation for long-term sustainable growth. As part of our deep dive into our business, we have engaged a top tier external consultancy firm to work alongside our team to assess our entire product portfolio, the mix shift from 1P to 3P, and our pricing strategy and inventory management, optimizing gross margins and further reducing working capital needs.

We are focused on streamlining SG&A expenses and are preparing to execute a Zero-Base Budget to eliminate inefficiencies. In addition, we continue to reduce losses from our international operations. During 2Q-2018, we managed to improve the international operation’s EBITDA margin by 8.1 p.p. and 5.8 p.p. during the first half of the year.

As announced, in early August we entered into an agreement with Grupo Sierra Capital, a private equity fund that invests in Mexico, Central America and Caribbean, to sell the entirety of our operations in Mexico. This divestment is in line with our strategy of focusing on and expanding those markets with the greatest near to medium term e-commerce growth potential to increase consolidated profitability and create long-term value to shareholders.

The changes we have been implementing throughout the organization are meaningful and we expect them to translate to a more positive result and performance going forward. We are confident that we are building a better, more sustainable business. While the environment has been challenging, we remain convinced that there is significant medium to long-term upside for Netshoes in our markets. We are grateful for your continued support.

Operating Metrics

The Company’s business is organized into two segments: (1) Brazil, which consists of the B2C e-commerce operations of Netshoes (sporting goods) and Zattini (fashion), and the business-to-business (B2B) operation mainly comprised of supplements sales; and (2) International, which includes Argentina and Mexico B2C e-commerce operations.

Registered members increased 20.0% year-over-year to 24.0 million in 2Q-2018, of which 6.8 million, or 28.5%, were active customers (up 14.9% year-over-year).

The Company continued migration of consumer purchasing habits to mobile devices, with 54.1% of total orders placed from mobile devices in 2Q-2018, a 11.2 p.p. increase over 2Q-2017.

GMV from the B2C operation grew 6.4% year-over-year on an FX neutral basis in 2Q-2018 (4.2% on as reported basis), driven by a 4.1% year-over-year increase in Netshoes Brazil GMV, a 14.2% year-over-year increase in Zattini’s GMV, and an 8.0% year-over-year increase in Netshoes International GMV.

  • During the quarter, the 11-day truckers’ strike (May 2018) severely disrupted Brazil’s supply and logistical activities, negatively impacting B2C GMV year-over-year growth. Based on the reduction in demand during the period, the Company estimates the impact of the strike was approximately 5.0 p.p.
  • Zattini’s fashion collection in Brazil was negatively affected by a warm winter season.
  • International GMV growth was mainly driven by an increase of 11.3% in Argentina’s GMV on a local currency basis which was partially offset by Mexico’s 1.4% GMV decrease.
  • In 2Q-2018, invoiced orders increased 2.0% year-over-year while average basket size increased 4.2% on an FX neutral basis.

GMV for the B2B operation amounted to R$5.9 million in 2Q-2018, accounting for 0.9% of total consolidated GMV, down 81.4% year-over-year, impacting the consolidated Company’s growth by 4.3 p.p.

As a result, total consolidated GMV in 2Q-2018 was R$630.0 million, a 2.0% increase on an FX neutral basis and in line with 2Q-2017 on an as reported basis.

Marketplace GMV (Netshoes & Zattini in Brazil) amounted to R$70.2 million and accounted for 11.1% of total consolidated GMV (12.4% of GMV Brazil), an increase of 72.7% or 4.7 p.p. year-over-year. As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s total vendor base was comprised of 900 qualified third-party B2C vendors, an increase of 395 vendors year-over-year and an increase of 10.0% over 1Q-2018.

The Company’s private label collection brands and licensing products continue to grow as a proportion of GMV, reflecting increased sales of the existing portfolio and new licensed products. Sales of products in these categories in 2Q-2018 represented 11.0% of consolidated GMV (12.3% of GMV in Brazil) representing a 1.2 p.p. increase year-over-year.

Revenue

Consolidated net sales were R$449.8 million in 2Q-2018, a 2.5% decrease year-over-year (-0.4% on an FX neutral basis). Consolidated net sales considering only the B2C operation was down 0.7% (+1.4% on an FX neutral basis).

  • Net sales for Brazil decreased 1.7% year-over-year to R$400.5 million. Considering only the B2C operation, net sales were flat with the same period last year mainly due to the above-mentioned effects caused by the truckers’ strike and the warm winter season.
  • Net sales for the International business in 2Q-2018 was R$49.3 million, an 8.3% decrease year-over-year on an as reported basis and up 9.5% on an FX neutral basis. This reflects the Company’s strategy to moderate sales in Mexico while focusing on profitability and was supported by growth in Argentina.

Gross Profit

Gross profit in 2Q-2018 was R$137.8 million, a 9.8% decrease year-over-year. Gross margin was 30.6% in 2Q-2018, a 2.5 p.p. decrease when compared to same period last year. During the quarter, the ongoing revenue mix shift to marketplace and the other margin enhancing initiatives positively impacted gross margin in 1.8 p.p., more than offsetting the negative 1.7 p.p. impact from changes in the e-commerce taxation regime in Brazil (EC 87, in place since 2016). Other impacts, however, have negatively affected gross margin such as:

  • Accounts payable Adjustment to Present Value (APV) accounting on cost negatively impacted gross margin by 1.4 p.p. This was a direct result of the Company’s adjustments in procurement activities to reduce inventory levels, improving quality and decreasing future short-term working capital investments.
  • The B2B operation negatively impacted gross margin by 0.9 p.p. The Company increased its efforts to lower the inventory level of supplement products by commencing additional sales through Netshoes B2C online channel.
  • The warmer than expected winter season impact on Zattini’s fashion collection in Brazil negatively impacted gross margin by 0.3 p.p. according to Company estimates.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses, net of depreciation and amortization, were R$137.6 million in 2Q-2018, 12.6% lower than 2Q-2017. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses were 30.6%, compared to 34.1% in 2Q-2017.

Selling and marketing expenses, net of depreciation and amortization, decreased 9.5% year-over-year in 2Q-2018 to R$108.5 million, representing 24.1% of net sales compared to 26.0% of net sales in 2Q-2017. This decrease was mainly attributed to lower expenses in branding campaigns, driving marketing investments down 0.7 p.p., and lower chargeback expenses.

General and administrative expenses, net of depreciation and amortization, were R$28.1 million in 2Q-2018, 23.1% lower in comparison to 2Q-2017, representing 6.3% of net sales, versus 7.9% of net sales in 2Q-2017. This reduction is mainly related to the rationalization of administrative expenses and lower IT expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA & Net Loss

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was R$0.2 million in 2Q-2018 (0.0% Adj. EBITDA margin) compared to negative R$4.6 million in 2Q-2017 (-1.0% Adj. EBITDA margin). In 2Q-2018, the negative impact from B2B operations amounted to R$4.2 million, compared to a positive contribution of R$1.4 million in 2Q-2017.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the Brazilian operation in 2Q-2018 was R$8.0 million (2.0% Adj. EBITDA margin), which includes a R$4.2 million negative impact from the B2B operation. This compares to positive R$9.8 million Adj. EBITDA (2.4% Adj. EBITDA margin) in 2Q-2017, which was positively impacted by R$1.4 million from the B2B operation.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the International operations in 2Q-2018 was R$6.4 million (-12.9% Adj. EBITDA margin), compared to a R$11.3 million loss in 2Q-2017 (-21.0% Adj. EBITDA margin).

Consolidated net loss was R$38.1 million in 2Q-2018 (-8.5% net margin), compared to net loss of R$35.2 million (-7.6% net margin) in 2Q-2017. Despite the better EBITDA and higher efficiency in financial results, in 2Q-2018 depreciation and amortization expenses increased by R$10.5 million year-over-year mainly due to the accelerated depreciation of the Company’s former e-commerce front-end system following the implementation of the new proprietary system in February 2018.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

In 2Q-2018, the Company generated R$69.6 million in net cash flow from operating activities versus a use of cash of R$28.3 million in 2Q-2017. The R$97.9 million year-over-year improvement was mainly a result of a R$46.4 million inventory reduction, R$39.0 million of recoverable taxes and judicial deposits, and a R$22.6 million higher contribution from factoring arrangements. Factoring arrangements contributed to a cash generation of R$61.0 million in 2Q-2018 compared to R$38.5 million in 2Q-2017.

Cash used in investing activities amounted to R$20.4 million in 2Q-2018 and was mainly related to the development of the Company’s information technology infrastructure and regular maintenance capex of the Company’s distribution centers. In 2Q-2017, cash used in investing activities amounted to R$24.2 million.

Cash used in financing activities amounted to R$35.4 million in 2Q-2018 and was mainly related to principal amortization and interest payments on financial debt, while in 2Q-2017, the Company generated R$380.7 million in cash related to proceeds from its IPO, net from the period’s financial expenses and debt amortization.

Due to the above, change in cash and cash equivalents was R$14.6 million in 2Q-2018 compared to R$335.4 million in 2Q-2017. Cash and cash equivalent as of June 30, 2018 were R$75.3 million, compared to R$419.9 million as of June 30, 2017.

The Company successfully completed the renegotiation of its working capital and debenture credit lines, increasing the original maturity of the contracts by one year to 2021 and establishing a 12 months grace period on principal amortization. This renegotiation eliminates R$107.7 million in debt amortization during the next year, with no changes to the costs of both credit lines.

Divestment of Netshoes Mexico Operation

In early August the Company’s subsidiaries (NS2.COM INTERNET S.A. and NS5 PARTICIPAÇÕES LTDA.) have signed an agreement with Grupo Sierra Capital, a private equity fund that invests in Mexico, Central America and Caribbean, to sell the entirety of its operations in Mexico.

This transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018 and is subject to customary (a) closing conditions, and (b) purchase price adjustment mechanisms.

Share Option Pool

On August 7, 2018, the board of directors approved the increase of the size of the Company’s share option pool from 956,470 to 1,296,470 of its common shares, which represents 4.0% of the Company’s total equity on a fully diluted basis.
