For information about how we define our metrics, see our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

"Our second quarter results demonstrate the scalability of our marketplace model," said Rachel Glaser, Etsy, Inc. Chief Financial Officer. "With a highly variable cost structure and a disciplined strategy, we've seized this opportunity to lean into investments that are designed to drive long-term profitable growth, improve the experience for buyers and enable our sellers to grow on Etsy. Although it is early days, we are already seeing encouraging data points in customer retention, frequency, and growth in lifetime value that are a result of our product and marketing investments."

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights

The impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and on our business continue to evolve. Factors contributing to Etsy's extremely strong second quarter performance included our quick response across our organization to invest in our brand and marketplace, as well as several tailwinds including the shift from off-line to online shopping, specific competitive dynamics, retail business closures, stimulus checks, and emerging categories such as face masks. Highlights of our second quarter business initiatives aligned with our "Right to Win" are outlined below:

  • Our team has continued to deliver high levels of productivity while working from home. We increased experiment velocity and allocated more resources to longer-term initiatives such as frequency and customer engagement.
     
  • We made additional progress in search and discovery by leaning into saved searches and favorites. More data on favorites provides information on what buyers like, and saved searches highlight what their tastes and preferences are. We believe we can leverage this data and make the site more organized and easier to search. Additionally, we continued to improve on recommendations by adding banners on listing pages to offer other options matching a buyer's search criteria across shops.
     
  • We continued to deepen the human connections and trust in our marketplace through product development efforts focused on the core buying experience, improving shipping, fulfillment, post-purchase experiences, and making our Etsy app more engaging and habit driving.
     
  • To better showcase our unique items we unveiled a new augmented reality feature on the mobile app, which helps buyers to visualize the items they're interested in purchasing in their own homes.
     
  • During the second quarter the Etsy marketplace saw an influx of 18.7 million new buyers and reactivated buyers -those who haven't purchased in a year or more. Given the significant amount of new buyers on the platform, our focus on buyer frequency became even more urgent, specifically engaging first-time buyers to bring them back to Etsy to make their second purchase. We are focused on increasing the 30 day repeat purchase rate for new buyers by targeting buyers on and off site with personalized and consistent messaging across many channels, driving repeat visitation, and strategically on-boarding buyers while building familiarity with the Etsy marketplace.
     
  • We completed the migration of seller listings to our new Offsite Ads, and following a month of waived advertising fees, we began billing sellers on May 4th. As of June 30th, minimal sellers have chosen to opt out of the program.
     
  • We adjusted our marketing strategies and spend for the Etsy marketplace during the second quarter to respond quickly to changing macroeconomic dynamics. We leaned in across many of our marketing channels to build top of mind awareness, and to better engage new and existing buyers everywhere they are - on Etsy and off.
     
  • Reverb benefited from similar macroeconomic ecommerce tailwinds to Etsy during the quarter, as well as a strong increase in new buyers and novice musicians. As announced on July 14th, beginning August 4, 2020, Reverb has increased its seller transaction fee for the first time from 3.5% to 5%. Reverb plans to increase investments in marketing, expand its global customer engagement team, and grow the capacity of its team that creates and enhances seller tools and services to increase visibility of seller shops and inventory.

During the second quarter, we continued to make progress on our impact strategy, reflecting the positive economic, social, and ecological impact we want to have on the world while advancing and complementing our business strategy. Here are some selected highlights:

  • Etsy extended our seller support initiatives in the second quarter, including waiving certain seller fees. The combination of one-time investments to support our sellers totaled approximately $12 million in the second quarter of 2020.
     
  • Etsy stands for the human connections made on our platform and the lives behind them. Black Lives Matter is the civil rights movement of our time, addressing a fundamental inequality in our society: that Black lives are too often undervalued. In support of this movement, in the second quarter of 2020 Etsy made $1 million in donations to the Equal Justice Initiative and Borealis Philanthropy's Black-Led Movement Fund and matched employee donations.
     
  • We deepened our commitment to carbon-offset shipping by offsetting 100% of Reverb's emissions from shipping beginning in April of 2020. Now, as with the Etsy marketplace, for every item purchased on Reverb, we will invest in environmental projects to offset the impact from shipping.

GMS highlights for the second quarter of 2020 include:

  • GMS growth excluding mask sales for the Etsy marketplace was 93%, up $1.0 billion year-over-year, and 14% of the Etsy marketplace's overall GMS was from mask sales. Excluding masks, homewares and home furnishings, our top category, was up 128% year-over year, jewelry and accessories was up 50%, and craft supplies was up 138%.
     
  • Etsy marketplace's GMS per active buyer on a trailing 12-month basis grew 5% year-over-year and 6% excluding masks, higher than the record growth reached last quarter and evidence that we drove an increase in frequency during the second quarter.
     
  • In the second quarter, the Etsy marketplace delivered 11.5 million new buyers and 7.2 million reactivated buyers who haven't purchased in a year or more.
     
  • GMS from paid channels was 21% of overall GMS in the second quarter of 2020, expanding 600 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2019.
     
  • Consolidated active buyers grew 41.0% year-over-year in the second quarter, and active sellers grew 34.6% year-over-year.

Second Quarter 2020 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Total revenue was $428.7 million for the second quarter of 2020, up 136.7% year-over-year, driven by strong growth in both Marketplace and Services revenue.
     
  • Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 was $317.4 million, up 159.1% year-over-year, and gross margin was 74.0%, up 640 basis points compared with 67.6% in the second quarter of 2019. The expansion in gross margin was primarily driven by our shift to Offsite Ads, which drives revenue growth without an equal offset in cost of revenue.
     
  • Total operating expenses were $198.2 million in the second quarter of 2020, up 89.4% year-over-year, and represented 46.2% of revenue, compared to 57.8% in the second quarter of 2019. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by our investments in marketing initiatives, including our shift to Offsite Ads where Etsy leverages its expertise and marketing budget to drive growth for sellers. Despite the increase in marketing spend, we gained leverage across our overall operating expenses.
     
  • Net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $96.4 million, with diluted earnings per share of $0.75.
     
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was $150.6 million and grew 279.4% year-over-year. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin (i.e., non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue) was 35.1% in the second quarter of 2020, up 1,320 basis points year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA performance was driven primarily by year-over-year revenue growth.
     
  • Cash, cash equivalents, short- and long-term investments were $1.1 billion as of June 30, 2020.

"Events of the last few months have driven dramatic shifts in consumer shopping habits, which we believe will increase the total available market opportunity for Etsy, particularly given our powerful, purpose-focused brand, the agility of our vibrant two-sided marketplace, and our unique competitive advantages," continued Mr. Silverman. "While we have limited visibility for the fourth quarter, particularly related to macro trends and consumer spending around Holiday, our third quarter guidance clearly indicates very strong overall performance for 2020. So far, we've seen our strong second quarter trends extend through July. We are choosing to take this opportunity to make significant investments today that we believe can continue to provide opportunities for growth in 2021 and beyond."

Webcast and Conference Call Information

Etsy will host a video webcast conference call to discuss these results at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time today, which will be live-streamed via the Company's Investor Relations website (investors.etsy.com) under the events section.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA

In this press release, we provide Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that represents our net income adjusted to exclude: interest and other non-operating expense, net; provision (benefit) for income taxes; depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense; foreign exchange (gain) loss; and acquisition-related expenses. Below is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

We have included Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and Board of Directors to evaluate our operating performance and trends, allocate internal resources, prepare and approve our annual budget, develop short- and long-term operating plans, determine incentive compensation, and assess the health of our business. As our Adjusted EBITDA increases, we are able to invest more in our platform.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business as it removes the impact of certain non-cash items and certain variable charges.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect other non-operating expenses, net of other non-operating income, including net interest expense;
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us;
     
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the impact of stock-based compensation expense;
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the impact of foreign exchange (gain) loss;
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect acquisition-related expenses; and
     
  • other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and our other GAAP results.
