Grubhub generates 39% revenue growth in the first quarter

CHICAGO, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Grubhub Inc. (NYSE: GRUB), the nation's leading takeout marketplace, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. DAGs grew 21% year-over-year, and the Company posted quarterly revenues of $156.1 million, which is a 39% year-over-year increase from $112.2 million in the first quarter of 2016.

"More new diners tried Grubhub than ever before in the first quarter. We are seeing clear signs of success from a more diverse restaurant base, broader marketing reach, and continuous improvement of our product," said Matt Maloney, Grubhub CEO. "We already had the most comprehensive takeout marketplace in the U.S., and delivery has enabled our restaurant network to grow significantly in both breadth and depth, making Grubhub the place to go for online takeout."

First Quarter 2017 Highlights

The following results reflect the financial performance and key operating metrics of our business for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016.

First Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Revenues: $156.1 million, a 39% year-over-year increase from $112.2 million in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Net Income: $17.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, a 78% year-over-year increase from $9.9 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA: $42.7 million, a 32% year-over-year increase from $32.4 million in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Non-GAAP Net Income: $25.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, a 46% year-over-year increase from $17.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016.

First Quarter Key Business Metrics Highlights

  • Active Diners were 8.75 million, a 26% year-over-year increase from 6.97 million Active Diners in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Daily Average Grubs (DAGs) were 324,600, a 21% year-over-year increase from 267,800 Daily Average Grubs in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Gross Food Sales were $898 million, a 26% year-over-year increase from $713 million in the first quarter of 2016.

"Grubhub's growth on both sides of our network helped drive DAGs growth of 21% and EBITDA growth of 32% compared to the prior year," said Adam DeWitt, Grubhub CFO. "We generated significant operating leverage, in part due to our continued improvement in delivery efficiency. As a result, EBITDA per order was up 10% year over year to $1.46, even while we invested aggressively in product and marketing to drive future growth."

Use of Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding management's future expectations, beliefs, intentions, goals, strategies, plans and prospects, including the expected financial performance of Grubhub following its recent acquisitions and investment in delivery. Such statements constitute "forward-looking" statements, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the matters set forth in the filings that we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, including those set forth in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on Feb. 28, 2017, which is on file with the SEC and are available on the Investor Relations section of our website at http://investors.grubhub.com/. Additional information will be set forth in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that will be filed for the quarter ended Mar. 31, 2017, which should be read in conjunction with these financial results. Please also note that forward-looking statements represent management's beliefs and assumptions only as of the date of this press release. Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to publicly update these forward-looking statements, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. 

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude acquisition and restructuring costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders exclude acquisition and restructuring costs, amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and other nonrecurring items as well as the income tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments. We use these non-GAAP financial measures as key performance measures because we believe they facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences primarily caused by variations in capital structures, tax positions, the impact of acquisitions and restructuring, the impact of depreciation and amortization expense on our fixed assets and the impact of stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

See "Schedule of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation" below for a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to common stockholders.
